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+?

"We always talk about playing 60 minutes but this is a 60-10 game: the 60 minutes of the game and the 10 minutes in the locker room after the game that you remember for the rest of your life."

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...
here is a breakdown on UGA can sign so many:
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.
See, Mark Richt prayed about it and the Lord told him, "Oversign and back count, my son."
And it was good.
