From this weeks story:

“I’m still committed to Vanderbilt but … it’s just a tight race between Vanderbilt and Georgia right now,” Dawson told the AJC on Sunday night. “I’d say they are both on top. I’m just going to have to weigh my options out. I’m going to make my final decision on where I’m going to sign on Feb.1.”

This is my least favorite part of HS and College football – to most “Commitment” is meaningless. It just means “Save me a scholarship unless I find something better before I sign”. The Coaches are just as bad – sign as many as you can to keep them from signing with another school, then sort out the mess with Gray Shirts and encouraged transfers.

So your least favorite part of recruiting is the recruiting process.

Professor,

Not sure when the last time you were on Vandy’s campus, but unfortunately in the coed department, they have you beat from a ratio standpoint. Not an ugly girl on Peabody and they are all intelligent or rich! This coming from someone married to a UGA girl…

Altamaha Dawg – Comprehension 101 -

What I said “This is my least favorite part of HS and College football”, meaning the recruiting process is the least favorite part of HS and College football.

Looks like we need some GA Tech guys on the scene – video stream is not working.

I hope JaQuay loves the school because the football team is going to struggle with LSU, Bama, and Arkansas while he is there.

Insider — You also said Brandon Greene was a Dawg AND Dalvin Tomlinson, neither of which signed with UGA.

UGA hasn’t got a flip yet….Richt needs to talk to Saban on how it is done.

I read what you technically said commis. To be honest, I don’t see where what I said doesn’t not apply to the point you were making . Nor was I calling you out. I was agreeing. But no biggie.

I wonder if the person who put “signging” on the videocast has a degree from Tucker.

If UGA can add Young (OT) and Patterson (WR) to this class then they have put together another Dream Team. JHC was a big pickup for the Dawgs! After Young and Patterson sign with UGA, then we need to start working on Foster and Nkemdiche for 2013! Go Dawgs!

Like our season our recruiting is all about getting the ones we are supposed to get and not winning on the big ones. No one is flipping to UGA. It’s not going to be a historic signing and this is not the Ring Team.
