David Ubben and Seth Emerson ($$) look at the talent gap between Georgia and Tennessee here. Warning: it ain’t pretty, if you’re a Vol fan.
The secret to Kirby’s success, per Seth?
The reason for that is because Smart is so single-minded and focused on recruiting that if they do have a bad year in recruiting, that position coach is going to hear about it. He may be fired. He may be the one guy on staff who doesn’t get a pay raise. There is constant pressure on these coaches to recruit well at every position.
If nothing else, that should tell you how much Smart realized he had to upgrade the OC position after last season. Coley’s not in College Station because he had a problem recruiting.
