Nothing lasts. Except the AJ-C’s trolling of Georgia fans, that is.

I guess we’ll really get to see how 3-star players with 5-star hears really plays out in November.
Lol. The ranking is based on total points not average. That’s why Richt’s classes looked good and he never one the division after 2012. He had a few blue chips and a bunch of 3*s

Once UGA brings Sherman into the fold recruiting will skyrocket.
Do we look worried AJC? And they wonder why newspapers are dying. People don’t want to pay for garbage hot takes.
It was in the hardcopy newspaper too, not just the internets. In what world does this help them sell newspapers or advertising? I have a hard time believing anyone over at the ajc takes their job seriously.
Narrator voice: No, it will not.
Click Bait…. Nothing more – nothing less… Even the average Tech fan knows this is garbage, like the entity is came from.

What’s the Tech equivalent of a cannon shot? A waffle house cash register?
This feels like one of those clickbait internet scams.
Get A Higher Recruiting Ranking Than Georgia Using This 1 Weird Trick!
Is quantity better than quality?? THE ANSWER MIGHT SURPRISE YOU!
I’ve had a theory for a long time that the AJC sports page has always been a reflection of Furman Bisher. Bisher was a Dodd/tech man, obviously, and figured in to the tech/Bryant/Butts scandal as a paid muckraker. But more importantly, he saw himself as a national figure, like Grantland Rice. His favorite sport, therefore, was golf, which gave him relevance.
College sports might be what his readers wanted, but he saw it as small-time and beneath his ambition. Hence the AJC’s generations of contempt for both tech and Georgia. They’ve never mocked Braves fans just for caring, or really trolled the Falcons or Hawks. But they seem to despise tech and Georgia on a principle- remember “Vols Put Georgia In Their Place”, 2006?- and only seem to really embrace covering Athens if they can find a Jan Kemp.
That may have been true in the past, but now its simply all bout economics and clicks. What brings in the most readers?
Positive Tech article: Minimal clicks
Positive UGA article: Moderate Clicks
Negative UGA article: ALL the clicks + many shares
It’s an obvious troll job and I won’t dignify it with a click, but Collins is definitely and noticeably improving Tech recruiting (as should be expected given their location). I stand by my assertion that he will improve Tech while also making it easier for Georgia to win the rivalry.
I do see Collins giving Tech a bump in recruiting, but I think the results on the field will be brutal as they try to purge the triple option from their system. Plus, their strength and conditioning program must be non-existent. They looked like a high school team last year against Georgia. I’m not even talking about on the field, I mean they just looked significantly smaller all around.
After a year or two of Bud Carson-like results, the recruits will wise up and go elsewhere.
Bless their hearts
This is what happens when you think your audience is stupid. Any reporter worth his salt knows that this does not hold up to any level of scrutiny. Any college football fan knows this. Even the Tech fans. Tech may finish with a top 20 class but I doubt it. When you live on clicks………
“…the Tech outranks UGA in recruiting for the first time in several years.’
Do they even bother employing sports editors over there anymore?
No, it seems they do not. On the rare times I read one of their stories, it is always full of typos, misprints, etc. Seems no one reads the article before it is posted.
Surely they don’t expect anyone to buy this drivel.
That’s one of them “Houston Nutt” recruiting leads, too bad the NCAA won’t let them sign 35 three stars like ole Houston used to do.
Golf clapping.. AJC.
There is no byline. Not even Bradley wanted it.
