Fair and balanced

The guys at The Quad waited until 7:21 PM on December 31 to get their entry in, but I think they win the “Damning with Faint Praise” award for 2007 with this thoughtful statement in their Sugar Bowl preview:

Georgia is likely the best team that the Warriors have faced all season.

“Likely”?  Way to go out on a limb there, dudes.

I wonder who.

Here’s an interesting quote from Mark Richt from an article about how difficult it was wearing the tw0 hats of Georgia’s head coach and FSU’s offensive coordinator in 2000:

“My plan was to concentrate solely on Florida State until about maybe five o’clock,” he said. “We would practice in the morning, watch film in the afternoon and do as much planning as possible. Then after dinner, I tried to do some Georgia work. There wasn’t any recruiting because of the dead period. But there were things. You get a couple calls that you have to start dealing with all of a sudden. Maybe a discipline issue of a kid you’ve never met before. All of a sudden you’ve got to figure out what to do. [Emphasis added.] But the thing I learned more than anything else was I wasn’t very good at multi-tasking. I don’t think I did a very good job. It was evident in the score.”

Hmm.  Things.   Somehow I doubt he’s talking about scooter issues there.

I’m sorry. You were saying?

That whole “dynamic of high school recruiting in the state of Georgia has changed” thing?

You may want to rethink that premise.

  • Number of players in the AJ-C Super Southern 100 from the state of Georgia: 20
  • Number of verbal commitments to Georgia from the AJ-C Super Southern 100: 13
  • Number of verbal commitments to Georgia Tech from the AJ-C Super Southern 100: 0
