Robbing the cradle

Kirbs likes to get ’em while they’re young.

Judging from what I’ve heard about his contract extension, Smart’s got no problem promising this kid he’ll still be around when he gets to Athens.

    So why is Herschel Walker’s photo there?

    If the kid turns out to be the second coming of Hershel Walker, he can put Adolph Hitler’s picture on his Twitter feed for all I care.

    I think even talking to a 7th grader is kind of kooky but I guess Kirby can always walk away if the kid regresses to the norm in high school. I seriously doubt Kirby made a committable offer.

    That said, I guess offering too early is better than the Richt/Garner practice of waiting until a blue chip kid was all but locked up by a rival before showing interest in them.

      “Non-committable offer?” At Georgia??? Surely not.

      The out in the open “secret” to recruiting is being in as early as possible and then losing their number when you’ve moved on, committed or not. CMR ate shit for NOT doing that simply because it was wrong. Seriously??? Just because its wrong you won’t do it? Crazy, I know….

      I think he was religious or moral or something, I’m not sure…

    Unrelated, but it strikes me how average Herschel looks in that freshman photo when compared to the jacked athletes of today. Man, imagine Herschel in a modern-day strength and conditioning program … could he have been even more of a beast?

    He looks just like a young Herschel Walker.

    Hershel Walker is the best RB I have ever seen. I saw Bo in his prime, I saw Dorsett in his prime and I saw Juice before he killed his wife. Hershel is the best.
    If I ever run for the Senate don’t vote for me, I ask that you do the same for Hershel. Find another candidate.
    This is not a political comment…

    I’m not so worried about Kirby being around as I am me. I’ll be 81 if the kid plays.

    • Maybe if we’re really good, and donate to McGill Society and the Collective, we’ll get seats in the Skybox in the stadium where this kid plays his Middle School football games, and he’ll take us for a ride in a Driving Experience.
