Mark Richt has lost control of the hot seat meme. Again.

FSU fans say the darndest things.

The nation’s No. 1 prospect for 2015, defensive tackle Trent Thompson, admitted that he’s almost committed twice to UGA in a very revealing interview with’s Kipp Adams.

Thompson held off both times on the advice of his high school coach, adding “I do not want to commit early because I want to give everyone a chance. I want to see how their season goes and if Coach Mark Richt is going to still be there.”

Say what? Evidently there’s some negative recruiting going on in the Albany area with the high-prized recruit. Thompson told Adams that some hometown people want him to go to FSU. “They say if Georgia does not have a good season Coach Richt would probably leave.”

Hey, Trent, I heard FSU’s defensive coordinator might leave.  Oh, wait.

    Sounds like his high school coach is angling for a job at FSU.

      Folks in All-Benny need to put a little pressure on a coach. I agree with giving the player good, solid advice but this seems to go beyond that. And we Georgians are paying for his salary. Someone call HR.

    Rodney Garner.

    He does not sound too bright if he can be sold that meme.

    Watch out for AU. Garner is working him hard.

    I’m not sure what thread my comment would be appropriate for, but it’s exhausting being a Dawg.

    I live in Albany, know people who know Thompson, but his is mildly embarrassing.

    I did not know the AJC had circulation in All-benny.

    To spread the brand of the University of Auburn®™© ℠, Rodney was recently surveilled in the Tigermobile Escalade idling through Albany in the vicinity of Westover High handing out free rolls of Charmin® Ultra Soft™ and Sit or Squat© mobile app promotional materials to any willing takers

    All’s fair in Love, War and Recruiting. Competing against UGA in recruiting is like dueling with an unarmed man. If we are on the moral high ground it is all we need (sarcasm font on)

    One of the few things that I dislike about living in South Ga is the size able FSU bandwagon contingent. Very vocal and very obnoxious.

    I’ve always heard Jimbo and his staff- especially Trickett- are the slimiest of negative recruiters in the first place. Hiring away their DC probably only made it worse.
