Nice job. The way you described the recruitment of Elam and Battle is beyond inexplicable. It's completely mind numbing. To let Urban Meyer just waltz in and take Battle who by all accounts was a very pro UM guy is nauseating. If it wasn't so pathetic it would be downright laughable. We honestly never paid any attention to Battle until the taint already had the kid under their spell?
We haven't bothered to recruit Elam but we're investing time and effort on Dent who clearly isn't coming? Is this starting to sound a bit familiar? I've always stood behind this staff and still do but I think it's quite clear there is a problem here in terms of targeting and prioritizing recruits. We don't seem to see these issues on offense. It's the defensive side that seems to be the issue, particularly the DBs.
I'm sure many will disagree and that's fine. In my opinion there is an issue here that needs to be be dealt with because we can't get to where we want to go if this type of dysfunction continues.
I trust the staff as coaches. I'm very skeptical of them as recruiters. CB and safety boards have been messes all cycle going through multiple re-shufflings.I'm afraid they're putting too much of their safety hopes on Stevenson who as of now isn't going to Paradise. I trust the staff but the optics on thiskid are terrible

It's a total mess and this cycle it has become apparent that Banda and Rumph do not have a viable recruiting strategy in place. Everything seems haphazard and unorganized as if they were flying by the seat of their pants. Not a good look. Richt needs to get involved and get these guys some help sooner rather than later.
Doom and Gloom? Where? We have an excellent recruiting class 2018 who are all enrolled and in the process of putting together another stellar class for 2019. That being said the criticism being levied here is rational and valid. As passionate fans we are in it to win it and collectively tend to sniff out potential weaknesses that may prevent our beloved program from reaching it's full potential. Are we as fans in a position to affect the changes we feel need to be made? Absolutely not but that doesn't mean we can't discuss it amongst ourselves.Not sure why I still read the recruiting board, it's all doom and gloom, sky has fallen type ****.
Even after a very strong 2018 class.
And in July.
