Richt Transfer Redux: THE READERS GOT IT RIGHT!
On Friday, I posed a question to our loyal, patient (I got my Phil Steele magazine today, production officially ramps up tonight), and intelligent readers: Is Mark Richt too lenient on outgoing transfers?
The results are in, and…by God, we actually agree that CMR is doing it right!
In the large majority of cases, guys are going to transfer from Georgia for one of two reasons:
– They got in trouble with the law/university. (Tray Matthews, Nick Marshall, Jonathan Taylor, et al)
– They’re not going to contribute in a meaningful way. (Jacob Park, Blake Tibbs)
Under those circumstances, it’s perfectly understandable as to why Richt would allow guys to carve out their paths as they so choose. Under the legal/school category, you have unfortunate Jonathan Taylor situations, and you have the ones like a Tray Matthews or Nick Marshall that could bite you on the field, but establish a little bit more credibility with parents. Given that, a little roster attrition (probably 20-30% per recruiting class) should be expected, and allows fans who follow recruiting to get all lathered up when the Dawgs line up another top 5 recruiting class.
Anyway, I’m proud of y’all for agreeing with me and the rest of the DudeYouCrazy team, and I want to thank the solitary jokester/crazy person who expects the rest of the league to fall in line with Georgia.
