Mark Richt has a little secret



How large will UGA’s football recruiting class be for 2013?

Mark Richt isn’t saying — at least publicly.

“I don’t really get into talking hard numbers with everybody in the media, to be honest with you” he told the AJC recently.

How many will UGA sign in February 2013?

“I will say this: We will definitely have space to count guys back to last year’s class … there’s no doubt about that. We would love to have as many midyear enrollees as possible to maximize that number going back, along with providing space to go forward with 25, if there’s room with the 85 number [for overall scholarships].

“There’s no doubt, this year in particular, we definitely would be looking to get guys to come at the midyear [in January] and count back towards last year’s class.”

Let’s take a step back: The SEC has new rules against over-signing, limiting each member school to sign a maximum of 25 recruits per year. However, there is a loophole if a signee is an early enrollee. The Macon Telegraph’s Seth Emerson explains it here.

Basically, an early enrollee can count against the 25-man limit with his current recruiting class, or “back-count” toward the previous class if that previous class had less than 25 signees. UGA signed 19 for its 2012 class, three enrolled early, and at least two of the three will count toward its 2011 class, which will make the final number at 16-17 for 2012.

The bottom line is that UGA could end up signing as many 33 for 2013, although somewhere between 26-30 is more likely.

All Richt will say on the record is that it could be one of his larger classes.

“Yes, it could be,” he said. “The bottom line is how much space do you have in the 85-man limit? That’s the bottom line. We’ve already had some attrition after this year’s recruiting class ended. And you could always end up having more attrition for various reasons.

“So between now and next year’s signing class, there’s a lot of things that can happen. That’s the hardest part about recruiting … it’s trying to get your numbers just right when all these parts are moving.”

Richt has a good idea what the number will be for the 2013 but he’s not going to go public with it. Why is that? Why keep it a secret? Richt has his reasons.

“Well, first, if you say what a number is, everybody will sit there and say that’s their target they’re trying to get; so if you come short of it, there’s conversation, and if you go over it, there’s conversation,” he explained.

“The reality is that the number is not a hard number. The number fluctuates. If you start throwing numbers out there, it almost becomes confusing to everybody if that number changes for one reason or another, if you see what I’m saying.

“I can’t tell you exactly how much space we got, that’s the reason why. Because it’s always changing, whether it’s a guy turning pro, whether it’s a guy that gets disciplined and gets dismissed from the team, whether it’s a guy who wants to transfer, or whether it’s a guy who gets hurt and gets a medical DQ … I mean, there are so many things that change your number. Or even sometimes, you’ll have a walk-on that you will put on scholarship, and you want to have the freedom to do that.

“So, for me to try and say what the number is, it moves too much and too often for us to say certainly where it is. So that’s why I like to stay away from that.”

UGA may already be halfway to its magic number with 15 early commitments for 2013.

Yeah, what the facts say, that as always are spot-on, are that we sign plenty of the top recruits, enough for Mark Richt to have beat more than just 3 of 16 teams who achieved top 10 in his 11 years here – since he has signed way more NFL drafted players than any other coach.

But, he hasn’t.

And, instead of it improving and us getting Mike Bobo up-to-speed being stolen away from Jacksonville State as their Quarterbacks’ Coach now our Offensive Coordinator for years always with the # 52 Total Offense every single year of both Mike Bobo and Mark Richt as our Offensive Coordinators, what we continue to do is to have 33 attrition from our OVER-SIGNED 109 toward our 85-man limit.

And, now discussing how many we can sign when we have 9 right now we can sign still today for 2012 class we way under-signed.

Plus 25 we can sign for 2013 because we all know he will continue to do that too, attrition to which the Blue Sky posters state Good Riddance.

And, rock along all these years currently not beating a single top team. None.

Whilst we brag away of what we did 2005, which was 8 seasons ago. Since those Blue Sky posters cannot even remember 8 seasons ago now this upcoming 2012 season, perhaps a review of that season is in order ?

2005 we actually achieved the # 3 SEC school in every single solitary poll. We lost 3 games. We were told Joe Tereshinski III was a great quarterback by both Mark Richt and by Mike Bobo. We started him against Florida 2005; had we played anyone else that game, we beat Florida.

2005, I went to the Sugar Bowl at the Georgia Dome the Blue Sky posters state never happened. Before we could quit booing Mike Adam$ and his wife, we had given up 28 consecutive points to begin the game. Obviously, we lost that game too. No, that’s not all the fault of the defense when your offense gives up 28 un-answered points. And, it’s special teams too, which ultimately was the difference in this game at the Dome that never happened according to Blue Sky posters. Then, we lost to Auburn.

THAT’S OUR GREAT YEAR 2005, eight (8) seasons ago, Blue Sky posters are bragging about.

Yeah, no, what we do around here is recruit. Then, they aren’t coached up. Then, the NFL says they want them. That is, after, they lose every game against the top teams, here, because we don’t and Alabama does, teach team concept.

2012 will be no different.

2013 will be way worse.

How much does the ACADEMICS influence the UGA football recruiting. Like walk on’s with good GPA’s recving a scholarship, certain number of players being kicked off team.

Thomas Brown, I appreciate your research and factual postings. Any way you can see if ACADEMICS have influenced the scholarship issues: ie: walk ons getting a scholarship and the kicking off of the team some players for no real reason yet trouble makers being retained on the team?

My Dawgs might win 10-12 games this season, but if we’re not competing with the LSU’s and Alabama’s for National Titles, does it really matter?

The bottom line is that Alabama, Florida, Auburn, LSU and even Tennessee have a higher standard of excellence in regards to their respective athletic programs.If we don’t know how to make something great, we simply won’t. If we don’t know that greatness is possible, we won’t bother attempting it. Our fan-base, alumni and current athletic department literally does not know any better than good, because if we did we would demand more. What we need is someone with a fresh perspective; someone who has been a part of greatness. Greg McGarity knows what greatness looks like having been a part of it at Florida. The question with him though is can he be a guy who can make tough decisions(i.e. letting go of popular coaches like Mark Richt and Andy Landers) in order to usher in a new era of greatness? Or is he just some pencil pusher who was a part of the Florida machine? Time will tell. But one thing is clear, the old guard that hired and supported Richt( Dooley, Evans, Adams) will all be gone when Adams retires next year. If Richt’s teams plummet below 8-4 again, he will be gone.Mark my words.

Boy you knew it would take less than the 1st page before some Bama fan would claim hypocracy. You know, it’s one thing to defend your program, or your coach. We expect that. You should. BUT it comes across a lot better IF you actully know what you are talking about.

Let’s see if you can undersand:

This article is about the number of recruist we can sign and still be UNDER the limits. Hard to say the exact number because it changes, but what ever it is, there will never be a guy signed that is OVER the limits. We get hurt by that on occation but as a matter of policy we do not overextend scholarship offfers. Right or wrong. That’s what we do. – Ok got that?

The reputation that YOU are so defensive about is how many player would your program sign(before the SEC forced rules to limit that sort of thing) that is OVER the limits. It doesnt matter to anyone if you sign 18 or 35 guys as long as it is withing the limits AND you actually HAVE an open scholarship for them. Because when you sign more than you have spots for, somebody else has to go. Or at least that is the fear/claim. – See the difference?

One is under, or within. The other is over. It’s really not that complicated.

BTW, you Bama fans love to blame Georgia folks for your terrible reputation andthe bad publicity it got you over this oversigning issue. We didn’t start that. THAT was the national media, your own players, and the SEC.There are a number of articles in publications and also websites devoted to this. None of which, was pushed out there by professed Georgia fans. In fact, If you weren’t trolling our blogs to know about it, our mention of it never even happens as far as you are concerned, does it?

Like the post but your claim of ushering in a new era of greatness is very funny, Ga has not had greatness, certain moments greatness was at the door and failure occured every time.

What you are wanting is what I have been calling for also: WE HAVE NO LEADERSHIP FROM TOP TO BOTTOM and McGarity is not the answer, he has to go also. Firing the girls gymnasitcs coach in and effort to create fear for others coaches is a joke of a decision and a sign of poor leadership.

I’ve presented graduation rates, and I’ve presented Academic Progress Rates (APR), but to get to the details you have to know how the grades were whilst here. All we know is players such as Caleb Darnell King flunked out. It should be painfully obvious what our graduation rates and what our APR turns down to with 33 attrition of the latest 109 Mark Richt signed to Scholarships here. We cannot continue to run-off over 30 percent of every recruit he signs here. Will he continue that going forward ? Sure he will. I was told he cleaned house last season. The numbers I put up all last season were similar. Now, this season 2012 this one, we have 33 attrition of the 109. Obviously, it continues going forward. We run them off, kick them off, have them flunk out very very rarely, and just ask them to leave or force them out. Oh but Alabama does that, not us. Uh, no. How much of a genius does it take to go to any list of Mark Richt signed Scholarship Recruits, write them down, check them off against the current roster and see 33 are gone, over 30 %.

We’re running a bit of an NFL factory here at UGA nowadays. But, the problem is with so many drafted, you have attrition of those, and the real issue is whist here they didn’t give a hoot about beating the top teams.

No way, Mark Richt should be 3 wins out of 16 games against teams who achieved any top 10 all 11 years to-date. No way. This is Georgia. Reasonable numbers would be like 7 wins out of 16 games, which is MORE THAN TWICE AS GOOD AS HE IN FACT HAS BEEN.

There’s a problem. The problem REALLY is this guy who posted the post with the 11 years of NFL Drafted players of Mark Richt. You see ? He thinks that’s great. How easy is it to say the other 3 teams he listed on his list I did not change at all, all 3 have won 2 BCS NC each ? And, Auburn another. While here we sit with all these NFL Drafted players and we cannot beat anyone in years and years and years and years and years – no one.

You just cannot find the grades of the students, they are protected – the grades are. But, one fact is clear, we cannot beat the top teams with the most NFL Drafted Players of any school. So, the question is why ?

Bigtime, that Alabama education is really hurting your reading comprehension. UGA is not going to sign an amount exceding 85, hence it is not oversigning. I realize with your Alabama education it is probably hard for you to understand the difference between having 95 including returnees and signees on signing day which is what Saban/Alabama do annually and UGA having 85 or less counting returnees and signees on signing day. No roster management is needed. And you here, defending what Saban and Alabama doing is proof that you feel it ethical. And yeah, I know Rueben Foster isn’t coming to UGA, with him at Auburn HS and spending weekends at Trooper’s house, he probably isn’t going to Bama either. I predict Alabama or Auburn, or maybe both, get sanctions for his recruitment before he enrolls.

So this is UGA’s latest case of playing “follow the leader.”

Alabama 2007 incorporates the 3-4 defense. UGA follows in 2010

Alabama 2007 begins practice of signing JUCO players. UGA flip flops 2010 starts signing up JUCO players.

Alabama 2008 Alabama implements a progressive recruiting system which allows it to maximize recruiting. 2012 UGA once again catches on and follows suit.

After all these years CMR is finally catching on, and now has a little secret to hide. FYI cats out of the bag.

UGA will be guilty of the horrible “Cardinal sin” this next LOI day by being charged with “Mythical Oversigning.”

bigtime idiot. You are allowed 85 that’s 85 players on scholarship.In 2012 Georgia signed 19 players. They are allowed 25. Guess what dummy? It’s still 2012 last time I checked and Georgia still can still sign 6 more players before signing day in 2013. In 2013 the dawgs can sign no more that 25 players. It ain’t rocket science, do the math. Now if you are using Nick Saban’s math book, you can sign 35 players every year and at the end ot the year you can always weed out the weakest players in order to keep the 85 scholarship limit.

Dang Thomas (7:36), you’re gonna ruin breakfast for a bunch of Richt-fan-boys with those stats. And you didn’t even mention that UGA is Rivals #2 best for the past decade in recruiting.

But it’s not Richt’s lack of ability for not getting a BCS Title with all that talent that goes through Athens – instead, it’s his compassion. His love for his assistants – even the unproducing ones – that has kept him and his Dawgs out of contention. It was Willie who couldn’t stop opponents from ‘05 – ‘09 and that kept at least three vastly talently teams from achieving their potential.

This season, with this schedule, Richt could win big, if he would just go acquire a OL coach. I bet all UGA fans would think Bobo was a genius is we had a competent O-line – but we haven’t had one for some time – and that’s on the OL coach, not Bobo. Once again, we get the players – ask the NFL – 3 more O-linemen in this draft, but poor results.

Interesting pontiff here:

“So between now and next year’s signing class, there’s a lot of things that can happen. That’s the hardest part about recruiting … it’s trying to get your numbers just right when all these parts are moving.”

Richt has a good idea what the number will be for the 2013 but he’s not going to go public with it. Why is that? Why keep it a secret? Richt has his reasons.

“Well, first, if you say what a number is, everybody will sit there and say that’s their target they’re trying to get; so if you come short of it, there’s conversation, and if you go over it, there’s conversation,” he explained.

“The reality is that the number is not a hard number. The number fluctuates. If you start throwing numbers out there, it almost becomes confusing to everybody if that number changes for one reason or another, if you see what I’m saying.”

So CMR’s reasons for non-disclosure are basically the same ones that Saban uses? How interesting and obvious I find in that.

You Alabama fans are idiots if you think that not coming up with a number TODAY for the 2013 class is the same as oversigning. February 2013 is still 9 months away. You can’t oversign until then. If CMR has more than 85 guys offered and committed to scholarships in February 2013 (like Nick Saban most likely will since he’s done it every year since he arrived at Alabama), then we can talk about oversigning. Until then, IT IS NOT OVERSIGNING, BECAUSE NO ONE IS SIGNED!

McGarity had a choice to make when he came on board.

After 2009(8-5), he could have told Richt that he had to win NOW in 2010. After the 6-7 season, McGarity could have fired him and brought in HIS GUY.

He chose to stick with Richt. He mentored him and helped him turn things better(10-4)

To say that the pressure is off Richt is crazy. I guarantee you, contract extension or not, McGarity will not tolerate another mediocre season in football at UGA

We all thought last year was Richt’s most important year but I say 2012 exceeds it.

WnE… Bigtime is 100% correct. If this were an article regarding Bama this place would be in melt down. What you call “oversigning” I call roster management. Saban manages his roster so he doesn’t find his program in a self-induced probation status such as UGA with less than 85 on scholly. Like most things regarding college football Saban is proactive and Richt is reactive in this matter. Proper roster management also influences disciplinary issues on the team as well. I believe these numbers have a direct correlation to discipline policies within a program. At Bama if you can’t follow the rules you’ll find yourself off to JC. At UGA you can get break rules, beat women, smoke dope and get arrested but your scholly is safe. You can rest assured the players on these teams know this as well. I don’t know how this relates to GT. That team has been so dreadful, no one knows if they have 85 scholarship players or 45. Worse… no one cares. I challenge you to post a link to one single player Saban has cut. Surely that shouldn’t be so hard as I can assure you if my child was “cut” I would certainly make that known to the media. Here’s a link to one of the most out spoken players who was relieved of his scholarship for a team rule violation.

Coach MediocRe just doesn’t want to tell you an exact number because he simply doesn’t know. He’s the most reactionary coach in the game. He’s let his program slide into mediocrity and always reacts to problems the season after they rear their head rather than nipping them in the bud before they drag the program down.

You get 85 and no more come late August! As Nick said any player that leaves Alabama before graduation has made that choice themselves. If you can’t toe the line then GTFO! Nick is about to send two of your Georgiee boys back home because they can’t follow the rules for the team.(carswell and bowman)Cris Carter’s son is most likely gone as well but again that was his failure and his alone. Richt is using he walkon’s to make the graduation rates better and he needs that to stay out of harms way. Richt is a complete failure as manager of his team but please continue to blame everyone other under the sun other than the hypocrite. You have one of Pat Dye’s thug players running your show in recruiting so what do you expect. Please sign 40 or even more because you can’t get 40 great players to come to UGA and 20 of them stay for more than 2 years. It’s documented already. Your AD is supposed to carry a big stick that he learned from UF but in hindsight we see Foley sucked with Urban and allowed thugs for 5 years but just win Baby.

We actually have players leave early for the NFL and that has to be considered today for 2013 NSD when we have 3/4 that might go then. It’s always a moving target thus the 28 allowed you the room for a misfire but oh now we can’t have a great shirt for that is evil in the minds of the hypocrites at UG and UGA but it’s damn ok to fill the jails with their players. Please call us when you beat somebody that has beaten somebody until the just shut up!

How is it oversigning if you have available scholarship, hypocrite? The problem with some of you Bama fans is that you don’t even understand the debate.

Are you surprised they can’t understand the debate. I doubt they understand the meaning of the words. These ignorant Bama fans do serve a purpose though. The fact they are tree killing billy bob’s might be the one thing that UGA and GT fans will ever agree to on these blogs.
