Some of you are just gonna love this assessment.
Georgia isn’t ranked right now after coming within one play of reaching last season’s BCS championship game, but the Bulldogs have been anything but disappointing in the eyes of one NFL team’s scouting director.
The scouting director, who requested anonymity, believes the 5-3 Bulldogs have overachieved.
“They don’t have the draft-eligible players this year,” the scout said, “and when you actually look at it, it’s a credit to what their coaching staff has done. Their coaching staff lost nine guys on defense who are in the NFL, and they lost a couple of players on offense and then had all these injuries on offense, yet they’ve still gone out and won ball games. They haven’t won them all, but they’re winning games.
“I think the coaching staff has done a fantastic job there, and I see Georgia and LSU as having two of the best coaching jobs in the country considering all the players they lost in the draft.”
Of course, how can you take an anonymous opinion like that seriously? It’s not like somebody posting a comment to a blog post.
