I had somebody ask me a hilarious question the other day. He said, “Do you think Georgia has overtaken Alabama in recruiting?”
I didn’t mean to, but I’m pretty sure I blurted out a laugh. I wasn’t trying to be disrespectful. I’m as impressed as anybody about the job Kirby Smart and his staff have done in a short time at Georgia. But overtaken Alabama? I’m sorry. Not quite.
Since 2010, Georgia’s topped Alabama once in the recruiting ratings. How do you get from that to overtaking?
Is this representative thinking for a significant part of the fan base, or just Chip’s way of telling us a fable (in the classic sense, that is) to warn us about heightened expectations?
