Your Daily Gator is sick and tired of being pure.

They never fail to disappoint.

Another guy goes on to warn that, “UGa fields a $2-$3M squad…like it or not, that’s what the market is for that type of talent.”

Back to the transfer portal, I guess.

    Of all the post that site has had, this is the one that sounds most like an old Dawg post. The difference is that Georgia had CMR, so there was a lot of truth to it. The Gators are on even terms with everyone else out there; they just do not have a strong recruiter at the top – that’s it. That simple.

      This sentence really resonated:

      I have now formally accepted the fact that if HBCDM doesn’t place additional resources towards recruiting, then it will be extremely difficult (but not impossible) for UF to win another championship.

      Extremely difficult, but not impossible. I look at Florida’s roster compared to an Alabama, Clemson, Ohio State, or Oklahoma and extremely difficult is an understatement. That’s how Georgia was prior to Kirby: Taking moral victories like only losing to LSU by 14 points as a sign of ascending the mountain, turning a blind eye to the limits of the roster while proclaiming victory just over the next hill. I’m sure Alabama thought the same about us as we trudged along during the early 2010’s trying to find our footing with Richt, only to eventually concede that we needed more.

      Florida will get there eventually, and I’m here for it.

        Now we look at results like checks notes losing to LSU by 27 as signs that we are right there.

          No, now even the most stubborn Sunshine Dawg (and Kirby, too) looks at a result like that and admits, “Wow, maybe this manball offense IS garbage.”

          While I am certainly no sunshine dawg, I do believe that despite the dreadful offense we ran last year if LSU had played without their top 3 receivers and Edwards-Helaire (?), we would not have lost by 27 points. That game was lost when Cager, Swift, & Blaylock were hurt and Pickens was suspended. I dont think any team in the country could have beaten LSU under those terms. That being said, I completely agree that the offense had to change or titles were just not going to happen. Here’s to hoping for a much improved future on that side of the ball!

  5. Anytime a Handbag posts anything about how they can’t compete because their program is so clean, I would like to remind them that Florida and Auburn are the two most sanctioned programs in the SEC. Give ‘em hell, Charley Pell!

    I know y’all say they’re like we used to be, and I wasn’t around (as a uga fan) in the 90s, but were we really that delusional? This is borderline clinical.

    • siskey

      It was similar but the difference was that in the 90s the majority of UGA fans had memories of the glory days under Vince and thought that at some point the worm would turn. Goff recruited well at UGA and despite the first 2-3 years head to head against Spurrier there was a certain amount of people who believed that he would turn it around. It took the game in Athens in 1995 for everyone to see that we were rudderless and taking on water.
      When Donnan beat them in 1997 and with the addition of Quincy in 98 we were hopeful that we could get back on track. For the next 2-3 years, the games were mostly competitive or at least more competitive than the Goff years. The rise of Tennessee was also a real impediment because Georgia did not play them much before and they had not been that good year in and year out since integration. When they beat us 8 games in a row mainly with players from Georgia there were people who thought that this was due to us being unwilling or unable to cheat like Florida and Tennessee due to Jan Kemp or because our coaches were too dumb to know how to.
      Richt was such an upgrade over both the previous coaches that I thought after 2002 we would begin to pull away from Florida but that never happened and then when Meyer came the distance between the two programs went back to the Spurrier days even though Georgia was a top ten program most years. According to the Richt detractors, he would not stoop to the same level as Corch (see “Time to Die, Bitch”, AK-47s, et al) so even though we could not beat the Gators on the field we did win by adhering to the mythical “Georgia Way.”
      I am sure I am overly broad in this generalization but this is at least what I have gleaned from reading posts here and being more often mad as hell the last Saturday of October from 1991 to 2017.

        That pretty much sums it up. However, you did leave out the greatest part of Richt’s Legacy: Shutting down Fat Phil’s Atlanta Pipeline, and thus dooming Tennessee forever. Coach Richt did a lot wrong in recruiting and on-field coaching that prevented us from winning a National Title, but he forever doomed Tennessee to being the Tier-2 SEC School they always should’ve been. That’s more than Donnan or Goff ever did.

        • The Richt legacy is truly the dismembering of the Tennessee program through recruiting, turning the Auburn series back in our favor, and absolutely owning the Nerds of North Avenue. CMR just couldn’t turn the Florida series in our favor.

            Somewhat off topic, but Tennessee seems to be the flower in the SEC every fanbase wants to quibble over being the one to have truly plucked the last petal off of. LSU thinks they did it in the 2001 SECCG, Florida thinks they did it with Meyer, Bama with Saban, UGA with Richt, Carolina with Spurrier, etc. It’s probably a little bit of all of them plus a whole lot of piss poor AD and HC hires but it’s funny to me the arguing that can ensue when Tennessee’s demise is brought up.

              None of them have the facts on their side like Georgia does.

              It’s not simply losing games doesn’t end a coaching career, it’s everything that goes into losing the games you used to win.

              Richt permanently closed Fat Phil’s Atlanta Pipeline. Without that, Tennessee devolved in the 7-8 win a year team they were always going to be once recruiting took on more prominence in CFB. Tennessee is a blue chip talent poor state. They’re in the bottom of the SEC in producing blue chip talent. If they can’t recruit Georgia, they’re not winning SEC Titles. THAT is what Richt did to them.

              It’s because of Richt that they began losing to Bama even before Saban. It’s because of Richt that they would lose to Sakerlina or other teams they used to routinely beat.

              Thems the facts.

              I agree with Corch. Tennessee and Auburn are now games that Georgia fans expect to win regardless of the respective ranks/ condition of the team and that is in large part due to RIcht.

They have a revolving door of debt, and STILL returned to the great pumpkin, the guy that started the implosion after 1998 living on dreams. Now they got another lip packer, who yells at kids tell they tear up and kicks stuff. Theyll likely be in the tears paying him too in a few years when hes gone.

    Enjoy hours of fun with the whole family as you read direct quotes from either Richt era UGA or the Mullen era UF message board, without the obvious context clues, and YOU guess the fanbase.

    Revel in sweet, familiar schadenfreude or writhe in uneasiness as you relive your fanbase’s pathetic attempts to cope with its teams inadequacies but watch out, its harder than it seems!!

    I swear, when they do finally win one I bet the whole team dances in the end zone. #FTMF

    $2-$3m squad? I wonder how close to true that is. I also wonder how much the typical SEC team/ boosters spend on their recruiting classes. I’m sure the amount spent directly correlates with the class rank on signing day.

      I believe the going rate for a 5 star is $250,000 in the SEC, so $2 – $3 million might be true for FU. I’d bet UGA’s roster is probably closer to $6 million.

    I love how they claim to be the ONLY clean program in all of CFB. They then point out the dirty recruiting that Georgia has been doing. The violations were SO SEVERE that several coaches could not talk to recruits for almost 2 weeks. With that kind of track record I’m sure next stop will be recruiting future felons….oh wait, that’s a handbag specialty.

        Baker didn’t get into any trouble while he was at Georgia. Say what you want with what it appears to be some serious wrong-doing since he left Athens, but Kirby kept a lid on it while he was here. He even got the most out of a player that the Giants scouts said was disinterested and difficult to keep on schedule regarding his schoolwork.

        Corch couldn’t do that in Jortsville for his team.

    If you’re consistently ranked in the top 10 in recruiting, there isn’t anything clean about your programs tactics. Florida just sucks worse at it than Bama, UGA, Clemson, and Ohio State. Which is kind of a theme for them.
