The 2018 AJC Super 11

All eleven on the list have already committed to college programs.

Georgia has commitments from five of the Super 11. The Bulldogs have signed five or six Super 11 players each of the past four seasons, including six last year.

I don’t need to tell you how many have committed to Georgia Tech, do I?

“Yep, Georgia.”

Another reason to celebrate both Kirby’s recruiting prowess and Paul Johnson’s recruiting ineptitude:

Not only has Georgia finally made the necessary leap to pull away from this second-tier group, but also has earned the right to be considered one of the elites when it comes to recruiting. The rankings will change some as recruits play their senior seasons, but this is a significant upward trend and great news for the schools which recruit in the Peach State.

Welp, almost all the schools…

Thursday morning buffet

A little of this, a little of that and pretty soon all the chafing dishes are full.

Take out take

One of the genius’ most endearing traits is blaming his defensive coordinator for Tech’s failings whenever it’s convenient.  Here’s the latest example of something he’s bitched about since last November:

The Jackets were insufficient when it came to building on leads on offense and protecting leads on defense (particularly at the ends of both halves).

“I think that hurt more than anything with us,” linebacker Victor Alexander said. “Just to know how close that was for us.”

The details seem seared into coach Paul Johnson’s memory. At the media day, he didn’t need prompting to revisit the season-ending loss to Georgia at Bobby Dodd Stadium, a 38-7 loss.

“We take the ball and run out eight minutes in the second quarter (actually, 6:17) and score to make it 14-7 at half, but with less than a minute to go, they come back and score right before half and take the momentum,” Johnson said. “Those things just take you out of games.”

You know what else takes you out of games?  Watching your defense hold Georgia to a three-and-out to start the second half in a 17-7 contest… and then have your vaunted triple option attack lose seven yards on a three-and-out series to give the ball right back.

226 yards of total offense for Georgia Tech that day, the lowest output of the season.  But it was the defense giving up a field goal before the end of first half that took the Jackets out of the game.

Funny how the mind plays tricks like that sometimes.

Adidas can’t save Paul Johnson now.

Really, this is quite remarkable.  Only three of the top thirty five recruits in the state of Georgia have yet to commit to a college football program.

None of those thirty two have committed to Georgia Tech.

“Those are really the only four games that can be deemed testing.”

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I think Mark Bradley just dissed Georgia Tech.
