Yes, I think they are judging by a different standard. From their distant vantage point when they heard Tech would start winning the state in recruiting they thought that meant head to head with uga.Nice summary NES. just curious on the above. I reached the same conclusion and wonder if they are looking at this on a relative or absolute scale. I think if you judge vs Clemson or Uga, you might not think that we have moved the needle as an outsider. but relative to where we were/our typical peers in the Coastal, things do look better (to my untrained eye). But you have to crawl before you walk.
Obligatory disclaimer - yes, coaching/player development/winning games are critical as well.
Makes you wonder though what it will take for outside observers to notice the uptick in recruiting.
