    Re: Race for the #1 Ranking Class

    I will say again go back and look at these so called rankings of 5 stars. Then see if you can even remember what they did in college. Bama 50 % at first round (not just drafted but developing them into the top 32 players) Call when Kirby does this.

The deep RB backfield you enjoyed came from Richt not Kirby. Kirby better show more results to tame the wild expectations you guys have. Especially when Miami is about to have a great season in the ACC.
    It's not about a year here and there. It's about developing a standard of excellence where you're consistently in the hunt for the playoffs and playing for national championships - with an emphasis on plural. I've been following Georgia recruiting (365 days a year) for over 20 years, so I know a little something about our talent and depth. Lastly, no UGA football fans I'm aware of are pining for the Mark Richt days. I'm sure you are though.

    I'm perfectly capable of stepping up to the mean and nasty table, but for the most part I've been treated fairly, so there's no need to go medieval.

    FWIW, Georgia is back on top of the rankings!

    When did one year become plural ? The standard isn’t set off of one year. You came in second (in your own division) at 8-5 in Kirby’s first year then won the sec his second yet lost the big game. So this plural must mean singular right ? I’m glad you’ve been following for twenty years so you must know that Georgia has gotten almost every player in the top 10 for the state the last twenty plus years right ? I guess richt just couldn’t get it done in the sec by your fan base yet he was just as close as Kirby to winning a national title multiple times during a era before the playoffs. If the playoffs had been in effect then 2012 would’ve been a rematch and he would’ve won a title in 07. You give Kirby a lot of glory for two years of coaching. Florida had muschamp and Mac have great years too and then what had happened was. Bama produced an sec championship with mike dumbo that lost to la tech. Again Kirby isn’t Saban and until Kirby actually goes plural on championships then richt is still the Better coach. Lastly, lsu pinned for better days than miles but they got a coach o. Remember that

    I am by no means a Mod. However, I can share some words of advice.

    This is not the place to be threatening to step up to the plate. I can promise you that you will be out the door before the dinner bell is even rung if that is your intentions. This is a Bama board. Not Georgia, not FL, not LSU or any other team. You are a guest here and as long as you are civil towards the Bama members and Bama in general you will likely be able to hang around as long as you like.

    The minute you start challenging Bama fans, Board moderators or disrespecting Bama players and coaches, or just creating a confrontational atmosphere in the threads you particpate in, you will find yourself on the outside looking in. Please dont “step up” at any Bama member here or place your team’s accomplishments or perceived potential above our team. That wont go over well.

    I hope you respect the board rules and hang around. But remember, this is not a two way street with equal rights. We dont have to agree with you on anything but you do have to leave your external biased opinions outside these walls when they start encroaching on becoming confrontational or you attempt to measure our school against yours and claim superiority.

    Good Luck

    Not taking his side in this discussion, but I took his post to mean that he hopes and expects GA to stay in contention with Smart as head coach, making it plural down the road, once that has been achieved. He is getting ahead of himself, but I don't blame him for being excited. He just needs to keep in mind that Saban is the best in the game, and Smart will have to beat Saban for GA fans to see this materialize into anything more than they achieved under Richt.

    The bottom line, whether we want to accept it or not, is this: Kirby Smart is recruiting and working to build a sustainable program at a far different level than Mark Richt. We knew he was a workaholic and crack recruiter when he was in Tuscaloosa. Why would that change now? He came within one play last year. Let's see what he accomplishes as the head guy from this point on.

    The "helicopter dad" has hit UGA before his son has dressed out for his first game. Amazing how QB's and their dad's think nowadays. I guess every school is going to need to sign 2 QB's in every class since most are going to take their ball and go to a what they think is a greener pasture when they don't become the starter.

    Sometimes it's not just the kids that succumb to the " you da' man " syndrome.
