Did y’all hear Kirby on 680 this morning? I missed it but listened to it online. Guys, I don’t want to be Mr. Happy Talk, but this guy’s going to kill it. Alabama is going to miss him gravely.
I love Mark Richt, but the bottom line is recruiting is about hard work and long hours. “Getting ahead of the other guy.” He sees recruiting as a competition as much as the games on Saturdays. He wants to beat the other guy. That’s the edge I think Mark missed in the new era of recruiting. When Meyer came to the SEC, everything changed, and Saban made it more crazy. I’m not sure we put the work in. Kirby said the coaches get an hour for lunch. That’s it. 1 p.m. recruiting evaluation starts every day. It’s February. We just had signing day.
I think he’s on speed or Red Bull. Or both. And a lot of Surge and Volt Cola. And I think we’re going to win a lot.
It’s a much different vibe than CMR. It’s okay to love both guys. But I think he’s got the thing to take that next step. It’s an edge I, frankly, have never heard in a UGA coach, but it’s what I imagine it’s what Butts had. It was in Dooley a little.
It’s gonna be a fun few years.
