Georgia Penalized & Fined For Recruiting Violations From 2017-19

A new report unveils that Georgia was fined and penalized for various minor recruiting violations from 2017-19. Per SaturdayDownSouth...
quote:

Marc Weiszer of the Athens-Banner Herald obtained an NCAA violations summary showing Georgia football recruits received discounted or free school apparel three times between March 2017 and January 2019. For those violations, the school self-imposed various penalties and the NCAA tacked on a $10,000 fine.

Per Weiszer, Georgia “also reduced its official visits by four for this recruiting cycle, took away three weeks of unofficial visits, reduced its evaluation days by nine this coming spring and three this past fall and stopped recruiting the unnamed recruits involved.” UGA also won’t be recruiting prospects at one of the schools involved for two years. The summary did not identify the recruits or staff members involved and did not specify how many recruits were involved, per Weiszer.

After the violations occurred, recruiting relations coordinator Dacia King was fired in April and director of on-campus recruiting Lukman Abdulai was suspended before resigning with severance pay in June.

I mean it certainly begs the question doesn't it? Kirby "bags" top 5 recruiting classes every year and yet he manages to choke in big games. Georgia is the Oklahoma of the SEC. Kirby's teams never seem motivated to ball out although the talent is there. Even Smart seems bored half the time himself. I mean in the SEC East, Florida is the only consistent competition. Even Jake Fromm seems to be on a steady decline. Talent is not being developed or challenged and I wonder if the coaches and players have serious goals and expectations. Yet, without missing a beat Georgia continues to amass 4 and 5 star football players each year. How does this keep happening?

Let the NCAA camp out in Athens for a year like they did at Auburn.

We’re not worried. If the NCAA couldn’t follow the money trails at Allbarn, they couldn’t find their arse with a map of their arse.
