I just came to see how many of our fans reacted to this. I must say, I’m not disappointed. Lighten up people. What’s he supposed to do? Compliment us? Jacksonville will be fun this fall.
Why did the Falcons have to win those last 3 games? SMH. Maybe they can steal Sweat at 14th, I guess all hope isn't lost yet.
Ridley will rely more on his route running and physicality, a la Mo Sanu or someone like that. Renfrow is more quick than fast so he'll definitely benefit in the slot somewhere.
Aww this isnt a fair take. Look at all the Saban disciples around college football. They'd be fools NOT to take what they've learned from him. Man is a living legend. Idk, you just make it sound like a bad thing.
I get what you're saying here, but like BT said, these players meet with the coaches after the season to discuss their future, they usually say as much in the "exit" interviews. Saban has been around both leagues and I have to say if he ultimately felt the kid wasn't ready, it's hard not to take his side. Now ultimately it is his decision and I hope he does well wherever he goes (unless its not the falcons and he plays against them) but this happens a lot. Kid is talented and being on an SEC defense, let alone an Alabama one carries a tooooon of weight. He's more ready than not, but I think Saban thought he could use one more year to build his case as a first round pick and trying to get him to stay was more of trying to maximize his (Wilson's) potential than it was to benefit Bama.
Gotta agree with LSUMC. We all know Bama will finish top 3 and UGA will finish top 5 but LSU has a real chance at this as well. If UF builds on last year, it wouldn't be a surprise to see them there either.
Sarks a good OC, the offense will be fine. The situational playcalling is what frustrated me the most about him but that reflects on more than just Sark. Saban's staff will make sure this is remedied. Plus you guys have Tua and aren't slack on weapons, I wouldn't worry too much.
It doesn't. I'm more interested to see if he along with the rest of the staff can get Cam running it effectively. That would be an NFC south nightmare.
It's crazy how personal these conversations get lol. It's just football people.
Eh, I've seen a ton of our "fans" make some premature and/or unwarranted comments, but you make good points.
He went to school in Florida, yes and spent some time there but he is originally from Savannah, GA. He even claims as much in interviews. Now how the recruiting networks classify him, i'm not sure. 24/7 says he's from Fl but if you scroll down it says he's from Savannah. Who knows anything anymore? And yeah, maybe. But I'm optimistic. UGA is about as close now as they can be. I'm not saying perennial powerhouse but every year under the new "culture" minus the first, they've actually been contenders. That's all you can ask for. Get there, then anything can happen. As long as they keep trending in the right direction I think we'll be okay. Just gotta get over the Bama hump then possibly Clemson as well.
I wouldn't call them "championships" but signing a top 3 class repeatedly is definitely something to get excited about. I mean I saw a TON of UF fans happy just because they cracked the top 10, which isn't a bad victory. Stop trying to use championships as the only sign of success. It is THE ultimate sign of success but it's also a process.
Nolan Smith who is from GA is the top rated recruit in the nation, so yes, UGA did sign the top state and nation recruit. As far as natty's ... hit me up in about 30 more years or so lol, we should have more than 2 by then.
Mizzou chairman doubles down on SEC East title prediction, explains why NCAA’s punishment was inappropriate
I mean, he had me up until "When Mizzou wins the SEC East next year." Not saying they don't have a chance, it's just a bold prediction. Shoot, I'd say it's a bold prediction for anyone to claim the east this early.
I suppose that's why his insurance policy was "only" 1.5 mil as opposed to the 5-10 mil policy some players take out.
I don't think this is it but I prefer this narrative over the alternate.
We don't know what went on behind the scenes at UGA. While what the baseball player said is easy to use because a. it's been all over the place, and b. its what we know as fact, that DOES NOT mean his waiver was centered around that. Everyone is saying "wElL hIs SiStEr JuSt AcCePtEd A sChOlArShIp To ThE sAmE sChOoL" and trying to make sense of that, now this statement comes out and nobody believes it. Honestly, as a UGA fan I don't want what the waiver was really over to be released. Fields and his attorney have both already said whatever it was doesn't reflect anything negatively on UGA, let's leave it at that. Maybe they're covering up something we really have no clue about and would hurt recruitment if it were to be released. Let's just take good enough for what it is. I believe the NCAA as a whole is just moving towards loosening up the transfer rules as it is and the past two seasons have shown as much. Whatever the reason I'm hoping J Fields balls out next season.
To be fair, I don't have CTE and I sometimes can't remember why I walked to the kitchen
Alabama’s Quinnen Williams explains why he should be No. 1 pick, his biggest takeaway from Nick Saban
They asked him why he should be no. 1, he explained his strongest assets. Where in any part of this comment did he say anything wrong?
Or even better, (unlikely) but another in January!
That's cool and all but the past doesn't affect the future that way. Spurrier is no longer the coach, nor is Richt. You're correct, the gap may be CLOSING as in UF is closer to being real contenders but it's definitely not closed. As far as transfers, that happens when you have elite talent in front of you. These kids want to play now and nobody can really blame them. I'm sure you wouldn't have the same argument for all the 5 stars UF signed. Oh, wait ....
This is idiotic. By no means am i saying UGA is on Bama's level but if there's still work to do with Bama there is still work to do with UGA. UGA has the talent across the board to compete with Bama. UF has a solid class, but one *barely* top 10 class closes no gaps.
Yeah, i mean i think closING would've been a better word here. UF pulled off some pretty big signings, this much is true but to catch up to 1 and 2 i think more is required. Bama is consistently the top ranked class and under CKS, UGA has had all top 3 classes, with a number 1 class. One 9th ranked class doesn't CLOSE the gap.
True, I see your point. The difference in those teams though is they all had a pretty good defense last year and that won them a lot of games. Mizzou pretty much had to rely on Lock so of course he was put under a microscope. I'd argue if you placed Lock on any of those teams they may have been CFP participants. Maybe. Never know, the guy is talented though. Definitely earned his first round projection.
For sure, Saban is the king. Hats off to the historical class. Hope to see these recruits go at it soon.
Gotta be an intimidation thing, right? Like this is the guy that goes out for the coin toss, handles kickoff duties and shares time with another punter depending on the situation .... .... Right?
Lol exactly. I see a lot of fake punts in Miami's future.
