You have to like these odds.

I don’t know about erecting fences, but it sure seems like Kirby Smart can make a nice living off recruiting homegrown talent.

8.6% of the talent in a fairly populous state like Georgia is nothing to sneer at.  Unless you’re Georgia Tech, that is.

    Florida has 3 major and several minor schools dividing that talent plus other majors cherry picking a few, whereas the Dawgs only have the cherry pickers to fight off.

      Georgia is geographically at a disadvantage when it comes to cherry picking as you call it. UT and Vandy to the north, North Carolina and South Carolina to the Northeast, Alabama and Auburn to the west, and FSU right on the southern border. I lived in Fayette County for a long time and Auburn fans were everywhere. South Georgia is a heck of a lot closer to FSU & FU than UGA. What Kirby should control is the Metro Atlanta high schools. This would get us all we need.

        I won’t disagree, but it seems to me many of UGA’s most rabid followers live near the borders – where I guess they run into opponent supporters more frequently.

    Bottom line is, UGA has a huge advantage as the unchallenged #1 flagship university in one of the most football-rich states. We can turn up our noses at 3 star players most cfb coaches would covet.

    Bottom line, there are a whole lot of really good ballplayers in the State of Georgia and UGA can only sign 25 per year. As long as we are getting our share, particularly the best ones, there isn’t much we can do to stop those other states from poaching.
