Tennessee legacy Cade Mays signs with Georgia and UT fan Vol Train goes completely off the tracks...See your boys in Athens GA. How bad will they lose this year?
Sam Pittman's recruiting the best offensive lineman in CFB and he has the ability to develop their God given talents. That O-line is going to be fun to watch for years to come.With the likes of Swift and White, UGA will continue to be RBU.
This goes out to you Vol. Troll.Every time I see you I'm going to remind you.You can watch Tennessee Legacy Cade Mays UGA debut, on the National televised airing of UGA's G-Day on April 21. on ESPN.That's The Kirby Effect.
Typical of Auburn sports. They just got caught, this time.It just takes a full blown FBI investigation to catch the best at that game...
Well deserved raise for coach Tucker.GOOOODAWGS...........
Awesome design. Very cool ring. Kirby is on a roll...
Trudawg. Just another undercover jealous rival troll. Must suck being you.GOOOODAWGS.........
Blep."Kids don’t want to go to an already stacked school knowing they’re sitting behind 5* players who have been there a year or two longer."Apparently it took kids seven years to figure that out. Either that or it takes seven No.1 classes in a row to stack 5* players two deep at Alabama?Or, is it the coaching departures? But, that couldn't have effected the early signing period, so...Or, was it the low number of available scholarships? Saban only signed 19 after all. But wait, Saban stated after the early signing period that he had 22 scholarships available? How did that happen?
RT819, USC, No.4, 4, 10 and 2 is light years away from No. 1,1,1 and 1. Meyer has went 7, 4, 2 and 2. His last two classes were as good as Alabama's. The two before were not. OS should become a great team if Meyer can keep that up and do something with all that top shelf talent...USC and Ohio State won't be showing up in the SEC Championship game on an annual basis any time soon...
MattyJ, maybe you missed it, but Saban didn't exactly finish strong down the stretch, either. They blamed that on coaching turnover. My point, was that turnover had nothing to do with not doing well in the early signing period.Alabama fans think they're supposed to finish first in every thing, every time. Forgive me if I have a little fun when they make excuses for not finishing with the No.1 recruiting class for the eighth year running.
DawgsofWar, well said. Yeah, never seen one of these articles before.Looks like we have a rivalry brewing. And not a one sided one, either...
RT819, good point, but they had a coach who was stuck in the 80's and wouldn't- couldn't bring in or coach up a capable QB. If he had that could have made the difference. But nobody has matched Saban for talent. Over the last two cycles, Kirby has...
This reminds me of the 'Pro Alabama' articles aimed at promoting Alabama's chances of closing strong on the final signing day. They sounded real good, too.'The Tide didn’t have the numbers available for this class.'Yeah, that sounds better than Saban not being able to fill his stated number of 22 to 23 available scholarships. "We want to get 22 good players that have good character, that want to commit to the same things we do here at Alabama to help them be successful as people, as students and as players," Saban said.During the 2015 and 2016 classes Alabama signed 9 5-star players and 28 4-star players to UGA's 8 5 star and 23 4-star players.From 2017-18 UGA signed 10 5 star players and 32 4 star's to Bama's 8 5-star and 30 4 star player's.Comparing the 2013-14 classes is pointless. Georgia is catching up in recruiting- something that no SEC team has done since Saban has been in the SEC save Meyer, and he was competitive while it lasted. Saban has enjoyed a vast talent advantage over every other team in the SEC but those days are coming to an end.It's the Kirby Effect....
I wonder what excuse Saban will have for his failure to perform in the early signing period?Coaching turnover won't work for that one...
I watched the total meltdown of a coaching search at UT and wondered, why don't they go after Pruitt? Why didn't they go after him in the first place?I was watching the happenings and Pruitt's name hadn't been brought up, and I thought the Vol's were going to miss out on a great chance.It may take a while, but Pruitt can get it done, and I doubt he'll come up with any blind squirrel comments that Smart will use as fuel for the fire...
voltraiin. You can watch your boy Cade Mays, live and in color sporting his new UGA Red & Black on ESPN in beautiful Sanford Stadium.You never miss anything to do with Georgia football, so we're sere you'll be parked in front of your TV, drooling over all those freshly signed blue-chip UGA Dawgs. Must be tough being you....
Can't wait. It will likely be another capacity crowd. Nothing like another Saturday in Sanford Stadium...
Mullen's doing what he can do. Trying to follow what Kirby's proven blueprint of success. and why wouldn't he? Go to the basketball game and rally the fans, call for the fans to sell out the spring game, etc, etc. So far, he's falling short.Smart came out with the No.6 recruiting class. Mullen managed No. 14.We already saw what Kirby vs Mullen looks like. I doubt that will change, any time soon. See y'all in Jacksonville...
Kirby just put together the second highest rated class in history. Most 5-star recruits (7) in history. 12 top 100 prospects. Truly an amazing accomplishment...
Let the kid have his fun and quit acting like easily offended snowflakes.It's not like he poisoned some trees or something. He picked the other team. Get over it! GOOOOODAWGS!
The Harbaughnuts sure are quiet these days...
The days of Alabama dominating SEC recruiting are over. It's the Kirby Effect.
Can Dawgs hold onto SEC's No. 1 class?That headline would be more fitting after the 2018 class has signed..Can Dawgs hold onto SEC's No. 1 2019 class?? That remains to be seen.Georgia to this point has essentially lapped Alabama on the recruiting trail. Bama has 2 No.1 players at their position, UGA has 4. Bama has 1 No. 2 player at their position, (and he's likely going to sign with another program) UGA has 2. Bama has 1 5-star, UGA has 6.Saban ain't catching Smart in the 2018 class...
Altide, 'The Tide had fewer scholies to hand out this year' (24) is the reported number. Yeah, I heard Saban spin that one too. There's one problem with that excuse.Saban ''only'' had 24 scholarships to hand out in 2015 and he signed the No.1 class. He ''only'' had 25 in 2016, and he miraculously found a way to do it again in 2016. Furthermore, Kirby Smart only has 24 to 25 scholarships to hand out this year and he is going to sign 6-7 5-star players and a top 2 class. That dog don't hunt...'no QB (like Fields) was going to come to Bama this year with the QB position locked up'. Really? You mean like Fields did, when he decided to come to Georgia. With Jake Fromm leading his team to the NCG as a true freshman and 5-star Jacob Eason riding the bench? When he became the third 5- star to sign with UGA in back to back to back classes, something that has never been done before. That's stepping way there.Nobody can ever know anything until it happens, clearly. But acting like Kirby Smart being at UGA hasn't helped Georgia's recruiting, and taken away some players that Saban has been getting over the last several years is downplaying reality.
I think most are missing on one major aspect, or effect of Georgia's class.The headlines read Kirby Smart is likely going to sign the nations best class, and rightfully so, but how would the rankings look without Smart at UGA?How would the rest of the SEC rankings look? How about Ohio State? If you take Smart out of the equation, Saban would be leading the SEC in recruiting with between 4-6 5-star players and challenging Meyer for that top ranking, because many of the best players in UGA's 2018 class would be Alabama bound.That's The Kirby Effect...
Altide, Georgia finishing with the likely No. 1 class is a direct contributing factor in Alabama's class ranking.Take away Kirby, and how many 5-star players does Georgia sign? They have never signed 6 before... What's their chances of signing a record 7 5-star players. Zero. Even Saban hasn't been able to pull that one off...Take Kirby out of the equation, and many of those 5-star and top rated 4-star players would be going to Alabama. Like they did before.The phenomenon does exist. It's the Kirby Effect...
It's the Kirby Effect.Cracks me up to see some Bama fans downplaying recruiting. Yeah, and it's all Saban as a coach and his ability to develop those 'We’ve had a whole lot more 3 stars turn out to be more valuable than most 5 stars'.That excuse, could only come from a Alabama fan. Priceless....
