National media weighs in on Jermaine Burton transfer from Georgia to Alabama: ‘Interesting’

    So would Burton have remained a Dawg had JT remained a Dawg? Burton certainly did not follow JT to Bama! And, he knows it is possible BrockV or another could step up and win the starting role? So, why did Burton really leave?

    I'm not mad at any man or woman who chooses to bet on themselves. Go chase your dreams thanks for all the hard work.

    I suspect he was...encouraged to leave. UGA's WR room is loaded. Burton's production would have been nowhere near his 2021 numbers if they had a healthy WR room. He benefitted from the other receivers not being available. And, that's okay. It happens sometimes. He may not even see the field at BAMA. I hope he does, but, the competition there is at least as tough as UGA.

    Burton, UGA 500yrds; UA 1000yrds.......makes sense if you are a WR......

    Great point. It always seems when the offensive pendulum swings too far one way the team that brings it back to center has the most success (mid 90’s Nebraska, early 90’s Spurrier, and so on).

    good point

    You are spot-on! Consider the following:

    Question: Who is an elite QB, Bryce Young or Stetson Bennett? Answer: Bryce Young

    Question: Which offense consistently produces 1,000-yard WRs, Bama or UGA? Answer: Bama

    Question: Which school consistently produces 1st round WRs, Bama or UGA? Answer: Bama

    Question: Which offense showcases WR play, Bama or UGA? Answer: Bama

    Note: Jermaine led UGA in WR receptions/yards, but Bama had five WRs with more receptions/yards than Jermaine.  

    With WR numbers and offensive production like those at Bama, Jermaine’s transfer to Bama is a no-brainer.

    Best of luck to Jermaine, but UGA is still the National Champions!

    Go Dawgs!

    All we have seen from Burton is spurts. Anyone limiting his ceiling at this point is biased against his leaving. The guy can flat out catch it.

    Just a few short years ago, everyone was moaning about our TE room, pointing out the dearth of production and options at that position, and claiming any self-respecting TE would avoid Georgia like the plague. Yet here we are, with the best TE room in the country, hands down. If we portal another stud or two in, fine... but I like our roster and the odds for another outstanding year ahead. Go Dawgs!

    A win for Bama, a loss for the Dawgs.

    Live by the portal, die by the portal.

  • GoodtimeDawgGoodtimeDawg Posts: 468 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Yes, this is a big deal for Burton and Bama, but if our defense is like it was last season, Young will not have time to throw it to him. GO DAWGS!

    Alabama is wearing it out in the portal. However, with all their recent top receiver recruits in the past cycles, one has to wonder what this says to them. But hey, Georgia may have a spot or 2 available for some of their guys.

    He missed five games... the potential for those numbers to even out had he remained healthy is much greater than zero.
