    UF expected AP to walk on because his brother was already on the team. IIRC

    Revisionism is not a great way to make a point.

    We could probably steal UGA recruits if we'd go back to allowing dogs in the stadium.

    Regularly.

    The only ‘conditions’ (and they are YOURS) are that they had a (real) UGA offer, and we ‘turned’ them.

    You’ve failed to name a single one, despite it occurring ‘regularly’ back in the day, and there being ‘several’ to choose from.

    Think what you will.

    Just keep adding conditions if you wish. Because no one could ever go back and read what I actually wrote.

    (And yes. I do stand by “regularly” and “turned.” You to find some guys from back on the day. Ask them. That’s about the only way you’re gonna find out who was offered what in 1987.)

    Some folks just need to go full Luke Bryan.

    (BTW.... Where did Tracy Ham come from? He wasn’t offered any P5 schools? I find that hard to imagine.)

    Apparently he wasn't. Their loss.

    Really?

    Are we sure??

    I get overlooking him for QB ability, but he would have made a great RB anywhere as well.

    (I do believe that stuff was much harder to track back then. Maybe top position offers and signings for some schools were tracked, but were offers actually tracked like they are now? Like I mentioned, my cousin was a decent player, and probably one of only two or three offered a scholarship from his large HS. You can find where he signed, but there is no info I can find on who offered, and he had 4 or 5 from G5’s and P5s.)

    Maybe UGA offered Ham (smile)

The physical transformations thatguys like JJ Wilcox and Jerick McKinnon had under Monken were remarkable. Tom Melton was one of the best S&C coaches we've ever had. Gotta get back to that point.

    You could even toss Matt Breida into that group during his redshirt year in 2014.
