Coach Richt RoboCalls Start April 1

Coach Richt's phone won't be making outgoing calls to recruits in April because of the "missing running back" formation trick for Isaiah Crowell.  Richt wanted to illustrate the importance of Crowell as a running back prospect.  On a Crowell visit, Richt had the offensive players line up in formation without a tailback.  Richt and Crowell viewed the 10 man formation from Richt's office overseeing the field.  Crowell was then no doubt told he was the missing piece of the offense.  Caleb King and Washaun Ealey were lured to another part of the football complex during these events by the promise that they could view a valid Georgia driver's license.  The tactic was a prohibited "game day simulation" and will cost Richt his calls to recruits during the April evaluation period.

Surely, we can figure out a way around that punishment.  I suggest those damn robocallers that make me avoid answering my home phone during any political election.  

So, if you're a UGA recruit who hasn't already committed to Alabama, expect a call every night around dinnertime that goes something like this: 

Recruit: "Hello?"

RoboCall Machine: [Long Pause] "Hello, this is Coach Richt, head coach of the 2010 Liberty Bowl runner-up, Georgia Bulldogs.  I care very deeply about your future as a man and a football player.  The University of Georgia is a great place for you to consider playing college football for.  It is a top twenty public university, plays in the SEC, and has many, many pretty girls for you to court in a Godly way.   If you haven't already been to one of our Junior Days, please consider coming up for a visit.  I can see you and talk to you if you come see me.  Bring your folks, too.  Hope you have a great spring.  Pretty girls.  Start right away.  NFL potential.  Hedges.  Blah, blah, blah.  Go Dawgs!"

Oh give me a freakin' break. Setting up in a "missing man formation" on an indoor practice field with no intention of running a play is a "game day simulation?" This has to be one of the stupidest rules around!

Yea, I can see not running a play or having the kid suit up and run plays. But a line up is like taking pictures. Do these rules prevent them from taking pictures with the team? Cheerleaders? Mascots?

If a kid visits campus for a day, can they feed him and his family? I bet there's a rule against that! "Sorry kid... I know you came a long distance to be here, but we cannot show you the basic hospitality of feeding you and your mom because the NCAA is afraid it will influence your decision."

Then again, I'm sure they're not reincarnating Bob Poss to feed them BBQ!! :-)

Laughed out loud at that one. Still laughing. Great job.

You had me at "valid license."

Anon - 3/14/2011 6:20 PM - How could you not laugh at the valid driver's license line?? C'mon man - that's some funny stuff! We need Quinton and PWD to start blogging again so ease up on the harshness.

Let's just say that bourbon burns when it comes out your nose.
