    Beckwith may grow into a fine TE- not sure.
    But about UT- I was very worried about their renaissance as they finished strong and won quite a few games.

    Then I watched the Gator Bowl vs Indiana. While UT did win the game, they looked so unorganized and discombobulated.
    I started watching at halftime and in his halftime interview Pruitt was asked what adjustments they needed to make in the 2nd half.
    He said "We need to quit jumping offsides." I thought "What a strange adjustment to make- that seems so elementary."
    But I thought he was just being sarcastic- I understand that coaches get frustrated.

    But no- in the 2nd half their D jumped offside multiple times. I guess his message didn't take.
    And I guess he was serious. (Just don't call him Shirley.)

    So I quit worrying about UT becoming a force under Pruitt.

    Ashaad Clayton stuck with Colorado.

    Rumor is we ended up not sending him an LOI, but this officially seals the deal on Greg Knox missing on every single RB we were recruiting.

    What if we get Zach Evans to go with Lingard?

    Even if they become a force, we'll be one as well.

    My take was that we started recruiting Clayton to get SVP interested in coming. Once it was clear he was sticking with UGA, Clayton wasn't a priority.

    Maybe Clayton told our staff not to even bother. In that case it’s still a miss. One in a very long line of RB misses this year. Glad we got Lingard from the portal but our HS RB recruiting was a giant miss. This year and last.

    Hindsight being 20/20, it was a real mistake to replace Seider with Knox.

    Exactly. In fact, who's left that hasn't already turned them down.

    My understanding is they did not send Clayton an LOI.

    It wasn't hindsight though....everybody wanted us to keep Seider as RB coach but knew Mullen would bring Knox in. Just sucks.

    15 Years? I think Volsheimers started in the early to mid 90s?
