Dabo’s all in on Clemson-Georgia being an annual thing.
Clemson coach Dabo Swinney, who likes to test his team with an SEC opponent other than South Carolina, would be a fan of Georgia and Clemson renewing their rivalry.
“Absolutely,” Swinney said when asked whether he would like to play Georgia every year. “I think it’d be great for both fan bases. I’ve said that for a long time. We’re going to play somebody like that every year. We go to Texas A&M this year, then they come to us. We played Auburn a bunch of times. So I think that would be great.”
Hey, I’m down with that, especially if it meant dumping a cupcake game from the schedule. Somehow, I’ve got the feeling Kirby and McGarity might feel differently in that regard.
#93K may be a nice sales pitch, but it pales in comparison to what Kirby has to offer recruits this morning.
Georgia set a program record by landing three players in the first round of the NFL draft.
Never before had the Bulldogs done this. But after a season that ended with a national championship appearance, the Bulldogs saw Roquan Smith (eighth overall, Chicago Bears), Isaiah Wynn (23rd overall, New England Patriots) and Sony Michel (31st overall, New England Patriots) all drafted in the first round.
That is some bad ass player development right there.
And let’s give Mark Richt a little credit here, too… especially for taking advantage of the opportunity Jeff Ulbrich gifted him.
The Jed Clampetts of the college football world get together and pronounce themselves satisfied.
For now, at least, there’s no hint of a desire to change anything.
“They are very happy with the way things are going,” Hancock said. “I can’t say it any more plainer. It’s been a good four years.”
Bill Hancock doubling down about the postseason? I think we all know what that means.
Now here’s an observation I never thought I’d see during my lifetime, from the New York Times analysis of Sony Michel being drafted by the Patriots:
… But while he’s a strong runner for his size, he does not, at this point, make the sharp cuts that are expected in the N.F.L. and there is a belief that he was somewhat of a product of Georgia’s excellent blocking scheme. [Emphasis added.]
Is Sam Pittman still underpaid? Discuss.
To paraphrase Archie Bell, Divaad Wilson can dance just as good as he plays. LOL.
