Today, in cannon shots

Georgia is collapsing under the pressure of South Carolina’s epic recruiting run.  Or not.

We already knew Georgia finished 2018’s Signing Day with the second highest-rated class ever, breaking Alabama’s seven-year streak, one month after nearly toppling Bama’s title dynasty on the field as well.

Most importantly, UGA dominated its division, hilariously outpacing the SEC East for the second class in a row.

So how’s 2019 recruiting going for Kirby Smart’s Dawgs*?

Well, after a weekend that included a commit from five-star RB John Emery Jr. and two other four-stars, UGA has 10 commits in 2019’s top-150 recruits, per the 247Sports Composite.

The rest of the SEC East has four. Combined.

UGA has five five-star commits to the rest of the division’s two, plus 10 four-stars, more than doubling up anybody besides Tennessee.

Kirby says pressure is a privilege.  It seems Georgia is feeling mighty privileged on the recruiting trail these days.


UPDATE:  Strong stuff from SBN’s Bud Elliott.

    If the Chiks are firing cannon shots, they should remember the last time they all bragged about firing a cannon shot. How did that Ft. Sumter deal work out for them? Don’t look now, Columbia, but a horde is coming out of Georgia again ready to light you up.

    They have stars marking where cannon shots hit the state capitol.

    Check your privilege Dawg fans, redistribute your 5 stars among your SEC East brethren.

    Boom is firing cannon shots for sure. He just forgot to put the cannon ball in. That loud cannon shot without the cannon ball is nothing more than hot air that is just like what is coming out of him.


  5. South Carolina is in for a rough ride.

    If someone in the East doesn’t get Georgia this year, it’s hard to imagine how they’d be able to in ’19 or ’20. Even in this semi-transition year, it’s hard to see anyone in the East beating Georgia without a crazy turnover binge.

    Florida’s cannons have apparently been sunk in the gulf of Mexico.

    I think we are going to need a bigger cannon.

    The early signing day combined with Kirby Smart is the Grinch that stole Christmas joy from the other sec east coaches.

  10. Go Dawgs!

    That SB Nation tweet should come with a DawgPorn trigger warning. I’m light headed…

    You forgot the cannon firing gif. That’s the funniest thing I’ve seen in a while.
