    Keep doing what you are doing Kirby, you can't change what has passed, but you sure can shape your destination for Georgia football.

    “You draw a lot of attention that might impact some kid that’s a 12, 13, 14-year old good football player, that says ‘I’d love to play there and be a part of that.’ 

    I understand this comment, but it comes across so strange. College football has been like this for years, recruiting young teenagers or trying to at least make an impression. It just doesn't feel right to me, but it is what it is.

    @jmr8046 Smart is not saying they are going on the road recruiting 12, 13, 14-year olds. He merely saying this type of game seen nationally with a huge viewing audience is planting the seeds in the mind of these players. And when they become 17 & 18 years he has already laid the groundwork for the ones who grow up to be elite.

    We have changed our recruiting agenda and have been targeting more out of state guys when we have so much talent here in Georgia. The Dawgs recruit nationally now i see.

    When a coach has recruited the way Kirby has, he can do whatever he wants. Go Dawgs!

    I have no problem recruiting nationally, but I see a lot of stud football players right here in the good old State of Georgia. So, a lot of those stud football players are going to Clemson, Auburn and other programs. that are competing for elite talent. Other programs have been taking elite talent from Georgia for years. and winning National Titles. Recruit nationally, but don't forget your own state.
