UGA Coach Mark Richt placed Alexander Ogletree on a medical hardship waiver, effectively ending his football career with the Bulldogs. The program cited “undisclosed medical reasons” as the basis for the decision.
What’s the big deal with that, you ask? Well, Georgia pulled in 33 players in the 2013 signing class.
In other words, Georgia “oversigned,” a practice that the Atlanta area media have tried to slam Alabama coach Nick Saban on repeatedly.
So, I’m just going to leave this link right here, and give you a quote from it that drips with hypocrisy.
“We will not over-sign at Georgia, either," McGarity said.”
Oh, and then there’s this juicy little tidbit from Richt himself:
"We could always get into a situation where we oversign, but there's no way I could look at a kid and his parents and say, 'We had some room, but now we really don't.' I just think you have to be careful," Richt told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Signing Day. "I don't want to oversign, then tell one of the kids we've already got, 'You've got no value to us' and toss him aside. I'm not going to do that."
How do you like Mark Richt now, oversigning.com?
We eagerly anticipate the 700-word column in tomorrow’s Atlanta Journal-Constitution, castigating Richt for following in the footsteps of the evil dark lord of roster management.
