Moar gappin’

From Seth Emerson’s Mailbag ($$):

This year Georgia has 10 of the nation’s top 60 recruits in the 247Composite — an amazing stat in itself — and even more amazing, not only are none of them guaranteed a starting spot, none is really a favorite right now.

But something something Dan Mullen’s arguably the best game day coach in the SEC something something.

Sheesh.  It’s almost like they’re telling us the Jimmies and Joes don’t matter anymore.

UPDATE #2:  It’s not just a one-time deal with Carter, evidently.

Jalen Carter, who was ranked as the No. 10 player in the nation by the 247Sports Composite, has drawn comparisons to former Auburn defensive tackle Derrick Brown “and early indications out of Athens is he is every bit as good as advertised. I would expect him to play meaningful minutes in his freshman year for the Bulldogs,” says Dawgs247 insider Rusty Mansell.

That’s saying something, not just about Carter, but just how deep the Bulldogs’ defense is this season. Rumblings out of Athens has some in the SEC believing this unit will be the best defense in the country this fall.

    I know what you’re saying, but I pray we do not wind up with the Guy Lewis of college football.

    Remember the wristbands? It’s that level of attention to detail that cinches it for Danny.

    Carter is really going to make a name for himself in Athens.

    An 18 yr old handles a starting senior with 4 years in Georgia’s weight program is impressive. Sounds like it’s not a one off either.

    This has been a bit of a missing piece of the puzzle.

    I’ve always been jealous of bama’s ability to seemingly always have a dt or 2 that was, when he decided to be, unblockable.

  6. This team’s roster is absolutely loaded. The defense may not have the stats that last year’s team had because the offense could be more explosive, but these guys look the part when they get off the bus.

    I still think we don’t beat Alabama in Tuscaloosa, but I don’t see another team on the schedule who should be favored over us.

      I go back and forth about Bama. I have watched the 2019 Iron Bowl and their bowl game a couple of times the last month or so and I think everything depends on our offense. We will and can get away with a lesser offense against everyone else we are set to play but if we can exploit their D we can win there and maybe even win big. Even Bama will feel the loss of those 2 WRs and Tua so I think our defense will play heads up with them but due to Harris and their O-Line they will still move the ball and score. If our offense can take advantage of that secondary (Surtain excluded) and poor tackling we can score up to 35 points in Tuscaloosa.
      I’m still cautiously optimistic about a season happening at all so IF and WHEN we do play I reserve the right to become more worried and pessimistic regarding our chances.
