imageFormer Georgia DT Bear Alexander evidence of ‘new climate,’ twisted recruitment

ATHENS — Bear Alexander said he once told Kirby Smart that he has “red, black and white running through my veins,” but it turns out there might have been a couple more colors involved.

    Bear who? It's a game to these types. Hope UGA meets him again in the playoffs. I have long moved on from this dude.

    Right On BubbaBill....indeed a conflicted soul and I for one happy to see him leave! One thing is sure, he just may meet his goal in the weak Pac 12 and he'll not be pushed for playing time like he would have experienced at Georgia.

    Note to Mike....I would appreciate a steel trap focus on the great roster of DAWG players working their hearts, and souls to become DGD's now that fall camp has arrived! I wish to celebrate these young men rather than the weak, waffle committed cast offs.

    I cannot say what I want to on this site right now so I will just say the following to Bear.

    Weak.

    This cracks me up how he thinks his Wishy-Washy commitment saga will play well with NFL scouts. If I am an N FL team this guy has a couple of strikes against him from the get go.

    off topic, but anyone else getting AI vibes from a few of the DN articles. By now we have read countless Connor and Mike articles and recently there have been a few that just didn’t “sound” like their traditional style, almost like a artificial intelligence app composed them. Either way, the information is intriguing

    Pretty soon even the responses will be manufactured. Then you will be arguing with a computer. You will have to do the 'Prove you are not a robot' check before every reponse.

    I feel like Jim Harbaugh is kind of a robot man. Some of his commentary lately feels robotic...

    @MikeGriffith ...I don't get it. What's the difference between a "HC/DC" or "NIL Collective", recruiting a player off another team......and.......a "HC/DC" or "NIL Collective" pressuring...or "encouraging", their "Starting QB" to recruit a former recruit and/or friend, from another team???

    BTW...I think Kirby looks at the TP as a way to move players around and manage the roster. As a positive way to "get rid of players that don't fit", for lack of better wording. I believe he actually likes it...for the most part. But, Alexander does sting a little bit. That's the downside.

    Also,...Mims did the same thing last year and turned around. I can't help but think...there's an enormous amount of outside pressure on these kids, texting and Social media, for example...to turn out money for their families. I know they want to, as well. So, it's not hard to get in their ear and twist up their minds. They need to be protected, once their decision is made,...IMO.

    I don’t want to read another word about this guy unless it is mocking him as he sits at the NFL draft waiting and waiting and waiting for his name to be called, ultimately going in the 6th round because it was recognized that he chose weaker competition and proved that his word meant nothing.

    I think they're "Aliens". Sark, Fisher, Daye, Harbaugh have all been "Body-Snatched"...all those Midwestern teams are products of the UFOS that crashed and landed out there, back in the 40's and 50's. Lol...they still haven't learned how to play football, so they appeal to their brothers in the Press.

    Those Teams are better at "Politicin'"....UGA plays football. Lol

    Maybe we should reexamine this "Transfer Portal" thing.

    It seems one way to protect these kids from the pressures of "outside influence",...would be to "lock them in for 2 years", once they begin school. By the time they complete their Sophmore year...everything should be clear to them. They would be free to choose and make a course correction in their career...if necessary. And, THAT can be limited, too.

    I'm ok with that as long as the coaches have to abide by the 2 year rule as well. I mean look at Auburn hiring Freeze and TAMU hiring that total youknowwhatI'mthinkingofsaying guy...

    Lolol...I was about to say...Auburn can't even keep a HC a full 2 years...and Florida, just does squeak in there. I don't agree with the Coach narrative. Not the same thing, IMO. Besides...2 years isn't gonna make that much difference. That's just one year longer than it is now.

    The way I look at it, 2 years affords everybody the opportunity to put their best foot forward. Is the Coach adequate and is the player responsive. It seems that it would be hard for either side to establish that in 1 year...with everybody on the Kid's back about how much so-and-so is getting on the black market, at USC (or, wherever).

    If the "coaching and facilities" or logistics that you covet, weren't there when you committed...and, they weren't there, when you signed. Using those reasons as "excuses" to transfer one year later not only "makes no sense"...but, it's a child's game. Why are we tolerating it?

    That being said...if a tenured Head Coach...I'll say minimum 5 yr qualifier... is fired or quits within 1 year of your signature...you may transfer. But, only after an interview with the "new HC". How's that? Afterall, they should bare some responsibility of a HC's firing, since they're "part of the team". I'm thinking of Harson and Mullins here. It should be the new HC's option to allow you to exit...or, not.

    If the "new HC" wants to keep you...you must give him one year to prove himself. If you aren't happy after that...you're free to leave. Obviously, there could be some form of arbitration, with specific criteria laid out...where a waiver may be granted.

    I never say, "never"...Lol. But it should be controlled, no different than a parent with a child. Boundaries.

    How the hell does anybody expect a head coach to control a "traffic issue" when they have NO control of the first 2 years of a player's growth and sampling adulthood? Where does the accountability and responsibility begin and end? Boundaries.

    Mr. Griffith,

    I would ask that you focus on the awesome young men who are fully committed to UGA football. I wish Mr. Alexander the best...but true Georgia fans have too many fully committed athletes we would rather you focus on. Mr. Sentell did a fantastic article reviewing the talent that our great coaching staff have recruited to wear the red and black. That's the type of article I think most Bulldog fans will take the time to read IMO.

    I remember when Jarvis Jones transferred from USC to UGA for medical reasons in 2010...that turned out to be a great story for Jones and UGA, but I'm not getting the same vibe with Bear going the other way. I wish him the best, but would have loved to see him show some patience and finish up as a Dawg. He could have easily reached legendary status like Davis and Carter before him. Maybe he will at USC, but he seems to have sold out for stardom in now vs the next level.

    Lincoln Riley is a low-life. Basically tampering. Perfect fit for "Bear," who thinks he's owed snaps.
