While looking for news on Rod Sweeting I found this short report, which highlights a problem not easily solved: What have you like most about New Orleans so far? "One thing is the people love the Saints. In college and being in Atlanta, the people didn’t love the team like that. Coming to New Orleans the people love the Saints so that’s been huge for me." My guess is this a factor on in-state recruits who have grown up hearing dwags bad mouth GT. This is all the more reason to play the education card and recruit out of state, and I'm glad that GT is moving in that direction. Aside from this, what could GT do to improve their relationship with the people of Atlanta? We certainly don't seem to have the local alumni base.
