“From a business standpoint, this is a good decision for them.”

I find this a bit interesting.

The Southeastern Conference had 27 players elect to bypass their remaining eligibility for this year’s draft, with Monday marking the deadline for players to decide. LSU led the league with six early departures, followed by the five from Alabama and four each from Auburn and Florida.

Georgia certainly took a hit with the departure of its senior leadership, and Roquan Smith’s exit will certainly be felt, but I see three teams the Dawgs will face this season that suffered greater losses from junior exits.  We’ll see how well each of those teams manage to restock their respective pantries.

    Besides Roquan, who else left early? Anyone?

    Actually, I see 4, if things play out as expected 🙂

    Hopefully we face 4 of those teams. I don’t want Saban to retire or go pro. I want to take Ala-damn-bama down while they are on top and he is considered at the top of his game

    All those projected top NFL top picks are returning for Clemson’s defense.

    IPTAY doin’ work.

    The LSU losses are the ones that may have the biggest impact to their team next year. Good timing for UGA I guess but not many high draft choices that I could see. Maybe things are still unsettled in Coach O’s lagoon.

      LSU has always been Leaving Soon University.

        True, but most of those were highly sought after draft choices. This may not be the case for, perhaps, 3-4 of these players. Especially tough with your program teeter-tottering on the brink of climbing back up or getting slapped back down. Orgeron is not on stable ground. Some LSU fans point out that Miles and Richt left in the same year, look at the direction UGA has taken and where they stand, not at just HC either. The coordinators and recruiting are troubling to them and it looks like we jumped into a Ferrari and are circling the track while they are in Jed Clampett’s antigue buggy spitting smoke out the tailpipe and barely sputtering.

    I had to click the link to check who UF lost.

    Guess I wasn’t counting Callaway or Harris as loses since neither played last year.

    This is definitely good news for us. 🙂
