Richt Talks Monday

Obviously the big discussion now revolves around Rodney Garner. I haven't had anything confirmed, but if you're holding your breath on him being back in Athens, you might want to rethink that. Tennessee seems to have more money than it can possibly spend, although it could certainly be about more than money, too.

If I am able to get comments from Garner or UGA tonight, I'll have them posted ASAP. Otherwise, Mark Richt's teleconference is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Monday, and we'll have definitive word from him then on Garner's situation, and perhaps some news on Asher, Knowshon and Stafford.

David,
If Garner leaves to UT...how many recruits rethink UGA?

Also, any guesses on who CMR would bring in to replace such a great coach and recruiter?

Thanks!

I think there will be little, if any, defections even if Garner does leave. Most of these guys have been sold on UGA as a program and their potential role in it, so I doubt that one assistant leaving changes any of that significantly. I suppose there may be one or two guys who were really on the fence and it was Garner that did the final convincing, but I'd say it's not likely to have any major impact on the guys who are already committed. The bigger question is what happens with the players who have yet to commit.

As for possible replacement, your guess is as good as mine at the moment, but probably not really worth speculating until we know something for sure anyway -- which we likely will in about 3 hours.

david thanks for everything you do! i appreciate all the information and insight you give us.

question is now, how do feel about your eagles? looks like they are getting hot at the right time.

Don't jinx anything! Although I'm actually feeling more confident than usual about them. I think they can run on the Giants, and I don't believe NY is the same team without Plax. Of course, this week, the Birds won't have Tavaris Jackson to count on.
