      I’m actually surprised it’s not more. With the talent that has come through that program in the last 10 years.

  2. Matthew Stafford and Aaron Rodgers skew those stats just a bit. Still it’s a selling point.

    Does that include Gurley’s jersey-signing money?

    If you need to find the poster child programs for underachievement, just look at those California schools.

    So more Bammers in the NFL but the Georgia guys make more money. Looks like the NFL is a slice of real life after all.

    I got to tour the fancy new recruiting facility at the stadium a couple of weeks ago. In the area showcasing the Rose Bowl and SEC Championship trophies is a ticker that runs constantly. It shows two things: guys who were drafted and their draft slots, and the career earnings for various UGA guys in the NFL (Example: Charles Johnson — DE — Carolina Panthers — Career Earnings $74,771, 674)

    So you damn right that UGA is using stuff like this in recruiting.

    30 players, most money made. Somewhere McGarity is smiling. Now that’s bang for your buck!

    While AL has more players in the NFL, it is rookies Chubb, Michel and Smith that NFL analysts talk about quite a bit. AL rookies, not so much. GMFB Kay Adams did a segment on UGA’s ‘Running Back U’ last week (I think). Made me really proud to see UGA get some love and they don’t do that on a regular basis for any school!

    Hey you guys are forgetting – Tek graduates start at $1,000,000 as soon as they graduate – I read it on Stingtalk and the AJC
