This year’s cannon shot

This has an air of inevitability to it.

Of course, it did at the time people were hyperventilating over UF’s and UT’s classes back then, too.

    Anyone with half a brain always knew that UGA was ahead of both of teams the entire time. All you had to do was look at the average ratings of the committed recruits.

    I tried to tell all the writers and all the Hillbilly and Turd fans that this was all recruiting pyrite, that they were buying into a sand castles given how many commits they had versus their average ranking.

    None of them listened, of course. The writers kept writing the stories for clicks, and the fans kept wanting to smell all the farts being farted.

    Now is when Kirby the Kloser makes them all pay. The rending of garments, the wailing, and the gnashing of teeth will be real to the north and south of us soon enough.

    I do find the cannon shot gif fitting, never gets old.

    There is a lot that can happen – both good and bad – between now and December, but this is officially a “trend” in how Kirby recruits. The perceived slow start, with us way down in the rankings, and then a slow ascent as we pick up a re riot here or there.

    I remember last year, in early summer, Clemson had a seemingly insurmountable lead. The pundits were calling it “the great east class in history” and everyone else is jockeying for runner up. By the time the ink was dry on all those LOI’s, we were #1 in the recruiting wars.

    Kirbs never rests with re rioting and I suspect he’ll make his usual haul as this signing period nears midnight.

        In the options window, you need to reset your autocorrect replacement word “style” tab from irony to simply embarrassing and see how that does for you! You’ll get mostly sexual word changes that will embarrass your mother. (I’d stay away from gender targeting or racial disharmony styles until you become a politician).

      I swear this post is riddled with autocorrecting gold.

  6. Gurley announced as the starter for the Falcons. Rodrigo announced as starter for Colts. Solomon Kindley for Dolphins. Think that might sell on the ‘cruiting trail?

    Recruiting websites need you to click on their sites to survive. UGA not slowing down on recruiting might get a few Georgia fans to click. UGA being passed up on the recruiting trail by UF and UT gets way more eyeballs from desperate fan bases. Don`t waste your time clicking on the fear and doom stories.

    Gotta get that pesky recruiting done early so you can go to the lake and relax.

    Tennessee has proven how many quick commits you can get when you offer to everyone with 2 legs in the northern hemisphere.

    Kirby has recruiting and defense covered. Fingers crossed his latest tweak takes care of the offense.

    It speaks to the quality of player each is recruiting. Lower level recruits want to solidify their spot ASAP so they tend to committ early and make lower tier teams (10RC and the handbags) appear to race out to near unsurmountable leads. Players of the quality that are seriously looking at schools like UGA take their time. They know that with few exceptions, a team will make space for a 5 star or high 4 star so no need to rush. When the dust settles, with VERY few exceptions, the cream once again rises to the top as the blue chips make their decisions. The 2nd tier once again gets leapfrogged with quality over quantity and assumes their normal place in the pecking order. Once again their fans are left to wonder what happened.

    I love how Pruitt is starting to get the nickname, “The Three-Star General.”

    Ya know, because General Neyland and how UT gets a TON of 3-stars to over-inflate their raw recruiting scores. Both the UT and UF classes look like your typical CMR class.

      I take credit for that nickname, here in the pages of Get the Picture.

      I wish Sideshow Dan the Clown got as much traction, because it is literally the most apt description of who Cousin Eddie is as a coach.
