When Mark Richt laid down the blueprint for Georgia’s newest recruiting plan last month, the thought that immediately came to mind was: “Why was this not the plan for the past 10 years?”
With the Bulldogs' football program now placing more emphasis than ever on the states of Georgia and Florida in the recruiting process, one can not help but wonder how much different the 2009 season could have been for the Georgia program.
The 2009 season is widely considered one of the worst and hardest seasons to endure in years by the passionate fan base, especially given the fact that rivals such as Florida and Alabama found such lofty success.
What if this plan had been in place all along under Richt? How would things have looked different, and would the program be in the same current predicament?
So here, if this plan were in place since 2001, could have been the roster for the Georgia Bulldogs 2009 season. For the record, this is a Bulldog pipe dream, nothing more.
Every single player on this imaginary roster hails from either Georgia or Florida — prompting the theme: If coaches can do it right, recruiting the Sunshine State and Peach State is all a program needs.
