I'm a woman's medium if you find one.
the majors at that ööööhole are a joke, just like that ööööing "university".
one can say what they want about Auburn, 'Bama, etc but I've never heard any of their fans try to compare their degrees to ours. At least they're honest that they're a factory school. ööööing mutt fans seem to think otherwise - ööööing morons.
For sure. This guy was a real dumbass.
They've started to hit Atlanta hard. IMO, big difference pulling a kid out of Brookwood/Parkview vs. Cairo
The below graphic was making its way around recruiting twitter in the past few weeks. Ignore the poster (Dwag premium writer) and look a the content.
We had to make 167 offers in attempts to build our current class. UF, UGA, UM, UT - all had to offer way, way more.
I'm generally curious. Do we need to streamline and put more attention into fewer offers or should we ramp it up and cast a wider net.
With sentiment like this, it's a wonder we aren't a bigger player in the state.
The factories have a system of boosters and shadow boosters that GT simply can't match. It's numbers and money. Kim King used to be the unofficial head of the booster system; his death was a severe loss. Don't know who's coordinating it now, but we just don't and won't have the boosters that a UGA, Clemson, Alabama, etal is going to have.
Pretty sure the below article has made the rounds on ST before now, but it bears repeating:
The stereotypical fan view is that Saban gets whoever Saban wants. So why is he offering the same number of kids as powerhouses Minnesota and Maryland?
Obviously Saban doesn't really get whomever he wants, but more to the point, there's lot of reasons why students say they have an offer from Alabama, but don't. Since the school doesn't report that information, you're getting it from student-athletes who may or may not be telling the truth. What this is really is a compilation of schools that kids want to have offers from, and either do have, or think they can get away saying they do.
Moreover, we're all aware that not every "offer" is equal; sometimes they're just expressions of interest; and in almost every case they're 'first-come first-served' anyhow. So offers from these schools may nor may not be real, and reflect varying levels of interest anyhow. This is a case of 'garbage in garbage out.'
Thank you, Exception Guy.
I like how yall are avoiding the elephant in the room. NO KID WANTS TO PLAY IN THE FLEXBONE IN 2018
Not true. Not even close. Oh, wait... you can't hear me?
YOU'RE WRONG IN 2018.
Yeah GTL, there are those on here that are so naive they post silly big cries on claims that there are actually bagmen under the bed.
Wait, could you give us the URL? Because I don’t see that anywhere.
A nice discussion about the quality of our recruiting during that time frame here:
If you add in our 2001 class to this stretch of time, which was ranked 19th, it’s clear we used to be pretty good at this stuff.
You really think that's the elephant in the room as far as recruiting is concerned, rather than academics, money, etc? Its more like you are focusing on the cockroach hiding in the crack of the wall and ignoring the room itself.
This metaphor is beginning to fall apart.
Does the Tech men's basketball program recruit as well or better than UGA's?
If so, what are they (the basketball program) doing that the football program might emulate?
Yeah, dont do metaphors drunk.
Apples and oranges, IMO.
