Apparently 4 stars are better than what y'all are getting.
It actually does correlate. Let's look at the 2019 NFL draft, for example. 8 of the first rounders were 5 stars. there are roughly 32 5-stars per cycle, so that's a 25% hit rate. 9 4 stars were selected out of the ~300 in each class. 3% hit rate. 11 3-stars were selected out of the 1000+ in each class. That, my friend, is AT BEST 1.1% hit rate. Stars matter.
@UFGator 2017? I think that was a pretty significant rise in rankings from preseason to post. Try again.
It is a shame that, at least for DL recruits, we're all taking what Clemson passes on. But I don't see that changing, especially with UGA's 3-4 system.
I think it really depends, alot can change. I'm not saying it can't happen, but Kirby has shown that he can get kids in SC away from USC. Even out of Columbia.
I don't think they'll get both Murphy and Burch. I believe we'll split those two with them, but I could be wrong. Don't forget, they have Bresee too. All of them are the same (or similar) position.
Pitboss is amazing, to say the least. I'm not willing to commit to it yet, but we could have at least 8 future quality NFL linemen on our roster at this moment. Thomas, Wilson, Kindley, Hill, Mays, Big Ben, Salyer, and Webb. It wouldn't suprise me one bit if every one of those names gets called in the first 2 days of their respective draft years. May not happen, but very well could.
Admiral Schofield is not 5% body fat. May be 12%-ish now. Js.
Solid list--Gonna be nice to see Crean and Smart here next year. Especially with Crean bringing in a top-5 class for this coming basketball season.
North Carolina lawmaker set to introduce bill that would require NCAA to allow student-athletes to profit from likeness
I'm for it, they should be able to profit from their likeness. But, to play the devil's advocate, recruits would now go to the highest bidder. I know he mentioned that the university wouldn't pay a dime, but what would stop them from doing like the politicians? Write a book and have some boosters buy a couple thousand of them. Something like that.
I'm actually disappointed that there isn't a way for me to like or thumbs up this post.
Yeah, same. Co-DC with Lanning is the highest I'm hearing RN.
If we're offering DC or Co-DC, I don't think y'all can match with the 2.5 y'all have in Aranda. We'll see I guess.
What is wrong with you?
*Good Dawg. One of the higher compliments one could receive.
I'm fairly sure we didn't go 10-2...
Everything I'm hearing is UGA-Texas with Florida hanging on and a security blanket. He doesn't want to go to Bama and is looking for every reason not to.
I expect more of the Belichick approach. 2nd CB and best cover safety on the #1 target (Jeudy), put 1st CB on an island with the #2 WR. Keep one player deep to make sure the play is in front and Bama doesn't break any huge plays.
The calls in the Bama MSST game were atrocious. The score should have been at least 7-7 going into the half and 10-7 Bama in the end, if you remove the crappy refs from the game. I'm not a tinfoil hat guy, but this consistent Bama-lean from refs is getting unignorable.
I...actually agree. Not saying Tua isn't good, but he's far from the god the media plays him up to be. He's a good QB with the best receiving corps I've ever seen on a CFB roster. They make him look better than he is.
Kids wanna play with Fields. If something changes, he isn't the last. 3 five stars will have left within the space of a month.
Just making room. Cine, Stevenson, and Elam will all be dawgs.
That's exactly the problem, this is Kirby's offense. Defensive coach needs to let his OC do what he's payed to do.
He's been taking visits the entire time. The staff isn't responsible for this, Jadon is just taking a step back to weigh his options. UGA will still have a hat on the table come signing day.
You can't prove to me that Fields would not be 18-2, or even 20-0 if he starts those same games. I obviously can't back it up, but I don't think UGA loses a single game with Fields starting under center. The team is that good, and he is that good.
Okay, let me provide some facts for you. Last year, Fromm was excellent, but he was never asked to do much. He had history's greatest RB duo and a suffocating defense to lean on. Nonetheless, he was great. This year, if you'd take a moment to watch the film again, Fromm has been hesitant in the pocket. With only a couple exceptions, he is only throwing checkdowns, screens, and only pushes the ball downfield when a player is middle-school wide open. He can get away with that in the games we've played so far, but when we go to Death Valley, he will not be able to. I think he has the talent to be an incredible QB, but he just hasn't done that this year. With Justin Fields, I don't know that he would be a better passer. He obviously hasn't played enough to see that. But the running game is undeniably better with him under center. It's no longer 10v11, its 11v11. Defenses MUST account for him. If CKS would let him pass I think, I don't know but I think, his Elite 11 MVP arm might do well enough to win us some games that Fromm might not be able to. There's a reason that Justin Fields is regarded as a generational talent and Fromm isn't. I love Fromm, nobody could have led our team any better than he did last year. But this isn't last year.
Our Defense and run game last year took us to the NC. Fromm was a nice compliment to them, but isn't very good without them.
I never said that, and I honestly don't care if any other dawg fans said that. Reality is that with Fromm, we will get creamed against LSU, Auburn, Bama, and maybe drop a couple others.
He's beaten them with a run game that simply could not be stopped. This year is different. Teams can reasonably stop or at least slow down this run game, and make Fromm beat them. I'm not saying he's so untalented that he CAN'T beat them, but for some reason he just isn't. I don't think he's playing to his potential. Until he does, I'd rather see Fields and his higher ceiling get some more snaps.
Reality is that we don't have good pass protection. We need to play with a QB that can handle that. Play to the strength of the team.
