With Sanders, Marshall & Seay released and Rambo maybe pending sup draft. Sure would have been nice to sign a max class. But we dont want to even chance the thought of telling a kid he might have to wait till next season to sign. We punish our players for failed drug test more than any other sec school or atleast match it and yet we dont oversign. Wake the f up !
I'm sure all the coaches were thinking...... I can't wait not to sign a full class then suspend my starters for getting high, and kick players off the team for stealing.
Happens every year, when will we learn!
Id bet we have more walk ons schlolarships players than most sec teams.
jacksondawg...since you're so smart that you knew all the attrition would be at DB
I sure wish you'e go coordinate our recruiting.
Since we'd signed S-I-X DBs last year it was't a high priority this class UNTIL AFTER signing day when all this happened.
If we'd evely distributed 6 more schollies across the board at all the different positions
then how much good does it do for all these missing DBs? Not a lot IMO.
But the ONLY certainty would be that we'd have 6 plan B type guys to take up space on
the 85 cap for 4-5 years and make it impossible to sign a big class in 2013 since we'll have only about 15 seniors this year.
But with 6 open spots, 15 or so seniors and 4-5 normal attrition...we should be able to sign a big class in a great year for talent in Georgia.
This stupid topic is back again? Good grief.
We must have a TON of Hall Of Fame coaches sitting in their recliners around this state. Too many people wasting their God-given talent. I wish they would go into coaching so they could show everyone how it's supposed to be done.
Wayx you idiot. 1st why would they be plan B players, why couldnt they be 4star athletes. 2nd all i was saying is, we lose players ebery year due to players transferring, quiting, stealing, etc,etc,etc. It would be nice if we planned for it every once in awhile, instead we end up offering a walk on
UGA went after other 4-star players at the DB position (Geno Smith, Chaz Elder, Will Redmond, Joshua Holsey, ) but they decided to go elsewhere. It kills me that people think recruiting is so simple. That all UGA has to do is offer them, recruit them, and magically every four star will hop on board. Sometimes people don't want to go to UGA. Other schools also recruit. Sometimes recruits want to go to other schools.
Hind sight is always twenty-twenty.
I trust CMR and staff way more than any UGA fan (with the exception of Lowndes25 <---Joke. So should you.
Actually, wayx is not an idiot. Disagreeing doesn't make someone an idiot. Not to mention many people on this board, myself included, agree with everything he said.
God needs a Safety on His team. RIP 21
Thats because everyone on here loves CMR and cant stand it when someone disagrees with his coaching philsophy. Fact is i didnt say anything about recruiting another DB im only stating we lose kids every year( quit, transfer, kicked out of school) and dont recruit to fill those extra spots. We could have gone over the 85 because we kicked 3 off the team but we didnt and now that will go to a walk on. I like the walk on story but id rather have top notch freshman. IMO

I would have to agree with jjacksondawgs on this issue. Every year it seems we lose players for one reason or another. To not take as many kids as possible is just not a good choice. A poster on here referred to it as "Self imposed sactions" and I would agree. CMR and staff are a great bunch of guys and are good coaches but they need to wake up when it comes to recruiting.. We tend to evaluate and offer kids late and then be satisfied with a good class even though we have room to take more... LSU, BAMA, and FL dont seem to have the "depth issues" that we have. The only difference between our football team and Vandy, Kentucky, Ole Miss and Miss State is that our front line talent is supperior. We will not compete with the big boys if we dont continue to stock pile depth. Love them or hate them but Saban and Miles knows what it takes to compete in the SEC.
What is clear to me is that we do have a problem...some will blame the coaches and others will say oh silly kids will make mistakes...whatever the problem is needs to be fixed...there is only so long we can sit here and say good enough is good enough and start to actually operate like a national championship team...
I am by no means trying to say you don't have the right to disagree with me. I totally understand what you are saying and have no problem with you voicing your opinion, but I draw the line at calling other idiots for disagreeing. I don't see how one can justify calling another person an idiot for agreeing with CMR. I think we all agree the Richt is better at his job than anyone of us are, so why is wayx an idiot for trusting Richt and agreeing with him? Even AFTER all the suspensions and dismissals we are looking at a talented group of guys. Swann, Mitchell and Bowman at CB with Moore and Williams at S. Definitely good enough to get through Buffalo and we get Smith back for Mizzou. Then Commings comes back for Vandy and Rambo is back by USCe.
Fact of the matter is that we need our play makers on the field, jsut like Richt keeps telling the media, Rambo didnt have pot on him, in his system, and didnt get charged with it the first time he got suspended. The girl he was with was the one who had it. This leaves me wondering why did he get suspended for it? Now, if you believe him or not about knowing what he was eating, is getting suspended for 4 games. Im sorry but to me this is far to harsh on a kid that could have went into the draft but didnt because HE wanted to HELP UGA win a championship, the least they could do is hear him out and remember he sacraficed alot to be there for them and us fans. Kids are going to do stupid things and us fans need to accept that, BUT, so do the coachs. These young men didnt have to come to UGA but they did and now the same people who wanted them at UGA are throwing them under the bus! These kids just want to play and if we try to tell them what to do every minute of every day besides when they are on the field, then they are'nt going to feel at home, they're going to feel like they are in prison. In my opinion, alot of kids coming out of high school see what happens at UGA when you dont follow the rules and look else where and see that if they go some where else. Then they'll be playing no matter what. unless of course they do something outragious. I just hope Rambo's appeal goes through. He's one of my favorite players and an all american. HE NEEDS TO BE ON THE FIELD and not sitting on the bench for something so stupid. JUST MY OPINION!
