I am ok with Auburn's class without the coaching change we probably land Rueban Foster and Dee Liner (both 5 stars) and rock the in state recruiting. Considering the last two years a Top 10 class for Auburn is a small miracle. For Georgia, who was one play away from playing in the national championship game, and only signing 2 of the top 15 out of your own state where you are the Big Dog then yeah I say that is a pretty poor performance and an ass whipping.I guess it depends on what rankings you are looking at. ESPN has UGa with 4 of the top 15, 8 of the top 30. That doesn't seem to bad to me, does it to you?
Complete reversal from last year after your best season since probably 1980.
Auburn will never lock up the state of Alabama 100% but we usually do have a nice piece of Georgia and with Rodney Garner back home that piece will only get bigger. Remind me how many kids you have gone up against UA or Auburn in the state of Alabama and won? How many have UA and AU beaten your ass on?There's an understatment ... 2 of the top 15 isn't close to locking it up, that's for sure.
Sucks for you doesn't it?
that would be 4 . I can admit it was not a great yr for Texas in recruiting and Texas needs to step it up. Lashing out may make you feel better, but it certainly does not change the facts. We both know that for Georgia or Texas to perform at their best they need to dominate their state in recruiting.Lashing out? I was simply pointing out the inconsistency in your statement. Kind of funny to talk about how bad UGa was doing when your own team was sucking at it too. If that's lashing out, so be it.
To be fair Texas can't sign as many this year so it is a small class and that hurts their ranking you guys signed 32 which is a ridiculous number and still couldn't land a 5 star.You got any more excuses ... if so, please just put them in one post so this doesn't go on and on for pages.
What you are saying is that the talent runs deep in my state,But none of that talent goes to UGA. How many of Georgia's top ten players did Richt and UGA sign? One?
There is no inconsistency. That is typical internet logic. Instead of arguing the validity of the comment, lets create a strawman argument. I was surprised by Georgia's lack of success and commented on it.What lack of success are you referring to? A top 10-12 class? Filling major needs in the D secondary? 4 of the top 15 recruits in Georgia, 8 of the top 30?
How Texas recruited this yr is irrelevant to the comment. As you saw, my position on was completely consistent. I thought both Texas and Georgia had sub-par recruiting efforts.I simply found it ironic that a fan of a team that did anything other than lock up their back yard would post criticizing another team for failing to do the same thing. Your admission of Texas' poor showing was in a subsequent post. And, I've been just as consistent as you stating that I wish my Dawgs would do better in state.
Texas recruited an unbelievable O-line class. Outside of that it was pretty weak. Not on true DL to speak of and 0 DTs. That will leave a mark in 2-3 yrs..
But none of that talent goes to UGA. How many of Georgia's top ten players did Richt and UGA sign? One?Two different arguments, of course, but we got 4 of the top 15. See the other posts here about my thoughts. No sense in repeating them.
And even if Richt could sign 'em, could he do anything with 'em?
What the Hell has happened to Stanford they are ranking in the 60s on most of the sites? It looks like they couldn't sign that many this year but good Lord that is awful.
Stanford was a young team last year and didn't lose that many. They also had quite a few who could have left early stay. Had they left they would have taken more I'm sure. The ratings are based off scores of the kids you sign so less kids is less score. Only team that can get away with not signing many and still ranking high is USC with all of their 4 and 5 star small class. Still, Stanford should have been able to get more 4 star kids at least. If they had doubled their class I'm sure they would have been around top 30 at least.
It will be interesting to see 3 years down the line how many of the kids of this class are starting and what kind of impact they have. Never can really judge any class until you see them play.
Mike Leach's only note worthy recruit is a quarterback who shat the bed whenever he was on television and he pissed off the only recruiting pipeline that respects him..so it was an outstanding recruiting season for Washington State.Gotta consider the source. Wazzy is fast becoming the shoktart of WSU fans.
Holy crap. Wazzu should have nowhere to go but up, but that's kind of funny from a WSU fan.
