You’ll be shocked, shocked to learn that Georgia ranks fifth overall. That’s tops in the SEC East, which is something else you’re probably not surprised to see.
Now there is one huge grain of salt to be taken with this data, which even the author of the piece acknowledges.
Obviously, this doesn’t take into account attrition. However, with a five-year window in place, this should be considered relatively even across the conference.
Not sure I’d go as far with you there, Bunky. Georgia’s 2013 class attrition is on a different level than “relatively even”. That being said, it was the lowest ranked class brought in during the five-year period. (Not that the subsequent vaporization helped.) Take that year out, and the other four classes average about 5.5.
Recruiting hasn’t been shabby, in other words.
The question for today is a simple one: when is it reasonable for us to quit making excuses for Georgia’s talent base? I’d argue with regard to the defense that we’re already there. Given the state of the offensive line, I’d probably give that side of the ball a little more slack. Your thoughts?
