I bet Thom Brennaman calls him “Nomar”.

So Omar Hunter commits to the Gators. The timing is a bit interesting, in that it comes after the news of John Lilly becoming the new TE coach in Athens – which in turn seems to have firmed up Dwayne Allen’s verbal commitment to Georgia. I wonder if the coaches might have been hedging their bets with Allen’s slot and then let Hunter know there wasn’t a place for him in Athens. We’ll just have to wait and see.

By the way, while you’re checking out the AJ-C story on Hunter, don’t miss Chip Towers’ blog on the recent arrests of Munzenmaier and Baldwin. “No need to fret”, Chip? He sure has loosened up since Stafford hoisted a keg last summer.

    I’m thinking we’re gonna end up with 84 guys this year (+1 to a senior walk-on, maybe Jeff Henson?) due to Xavier Avery getting drafted high in the baseball draft.

    That’s too bad about Hunter. I’ve heard there was not room for him in Athens unless someone backed off or didn’t qualify. I don’t blame him I would have went to the school where the scholarship was available too. However I wonder what Urban Lier told him during his visit.

  3. Honestly, in this case I don’t think it required too big a sales job. Meyer had a scholarship to offer; Richt didn’t.

    Especially given the Zebrie Sanders’ lesson, what would you have done if you were in Hunter’s shoes?

    “Especially given the Zebrie Sanders’ lesson, what would you have done if you were in Hunter’s shoes?”
    Rhetorical question or actual? If actual see the third sentence of my original post. I would just be curious to hear the sales pitch from Myer. Although after reading the article the AJC had on Hunter’s commitment it sounds like spending the day with Teb[l]ow was more influential than any lies Myer could have spit at him.

    Love the title by the way.

    Last night on that radio show I was listening to, Chad Simmons said that if every ’08 commit qualified, Georgia would be at 88.
