    Because the SEC should be more charitable and handicap themselves so the field can catch up!

    A&M 33 Commits, UGA 30...I thought the limit was 25?

    That's a lot of commits from both school and they still aren't in the top 5. I wonder what would happen if Bama did this. Has Saban ever gone 30+?

    According to Rivals, the 2008 class had 32 signees. However, Devonta Bolton, Destin Hood, Melvin Ray, and Brandon Lewis did not go straight to campus. Wes Neighbors took the Bryant Scholarship IIRC.

    That year was a perfect example of the whole propaganda machine in full swing. Yes, 32 were signed, but you eliminate a few right off the bat as you mentioned. I don't know how many were EEs, but the class becomes basically 27 when you get down to it.

    If you want to know what they're trying to do look no further than 3 star commitments that year: Brad Smelley, Marcel Dareus, Terrance Cody, etc... You apply this 25 rule and some of those guys have to go to another college, and in the very least don't have nearly as good a college career. They're just trying to spread the wealth around a little...

    Yeah predictably Carvell at the ajc finds a way to slam Saban as the serial offender in oversigning, but Richt signing 33 or whatever this year is just using the rules to his advantage? It's amazing the lengths uga homers will go to glorify richt and cover up his incompetence only signing 17 the last couple years. Never ceases to amaze me, but hey it's great for us. Hopefully he'll get another extension.

    In the past other fan bases refused to look at the composition of a signing class and just focused on the raw number. Now that Richt is finally trying to stop being a slacker, their fans are suddenly willing to understand "oversigning" a bit more.

    and Richt's back counting is somehow different from Saban's. They drive me nuts sometimes.

    See, Mark Richt prayed about it and the Lord told him, "Oversign and back count, my son."


    And it was good.
