It may seem obvious to say this: “Having more raw talent than a particular team only matters if you actually play that team, and it only really matters if you play that team frequently.”
But it doesn’t make it any less true.
Georgia had another solid year recruiting – top ten finish, maybe moving higher if Roquan Smith decides to come on board – but when you analyze it in the context of how the rest of the programs in the SEC did, the Dawgs only enjoy the 37th-best class. Four SEC teams rank higher.
Perhaps that explains some of the good, but not great, results we keep experiencing. Just something to consider.
