J Burton on why he chose uga over LSU
LINK

Sounds classless. He didn't have much good to say about LSU. I'm sure the real reason why he chose uga was because of LSUs depth at receiver.
And the article shows that some players want(ed) to play for Brady instead of LSU.

Seems pretty easy to me. He would’ve never started here next season. He will there and it’s his home state.

quote:

A month later, LSU passing game coordinator Joe Brady leaves to become the offensive coordinator for the Carolina Panthers.

"When he left, it just clicked that I had truly made the right decision," Burton said. "I mean, it's honestly a blessing in my eyes. It was a big decision with my family. I had to think deeper. I had to think long term and where I wanted to be after football. Being in the state of Georgia, building my like brand and having the connections even after football."

The next day, Georgia hires Todd Monken as its new offensive coordinator, signaling the eventual departure of James Coley after one year in charge of Georgia's offense.

"I am 100 percent with it," Burton said. "I kind of got the memo awhile back that coaching changes can happen and I embrace it. We have an OC here ready to change things up and get to work and so are we. I am excited to work with him."


Pot meet kettle

kid wanted to be close to mom and grandma but the writer of the article uses him as a rah rah mouthpiece for the program and loads the article up with contradictory statements.

Funny they are all pumped about Monken and LSU fans are somewhat tepid on Linehan. Linehan's resume >>>>

Hating on an 18 yr old for picking a college other than the college you wanted him to go to is never a good look.

Kids have a right to go to the college they want to go to. All the kids who chose LSU this year had multiple offers and turned down other schools. Some fans from the schools LSU recruits turned down are running down our recruits too.

Its not a good look when other fans do it, not a good look when our fans do it. Just saying.

Or recruits could talk good about the school they were committed to for a long time instead of talking bad when there's no need to.

and there it is. Proximity to ATL and the brands based out of Georgia will become a massive factor with the likeness stuff. See Maryland/Under Armour (Jarrett), Oregon/Nike (Flowe/Sewell/Manning), and now UGA/Delta/Home Depot/Coca-Cola. (Burton)

Some kids purely want the dollars.

Honestly, gotta respect that Burton let the LSU coaches know as soon as he made the decision to flip.

Honestly, if I went to Louisiana and played, I do not think my connections would be as high as they would be here in the state of Georgia.

When I do get there, and I build my brand and connect with the fan base and in the state of Georgia and Atlanta would be exponentially greater than if I went to Louisiana.


$$$$$$$$$

Could have saved the other “family atmosphere” stuff

We are trying to maintain a very high level of offensive play calling and scheme. They are desperate for anything new.

It is not the same situation.

These kids..............

Also, this is the 2nd kid we've seen now talking about "building his brand" in college football. Could you imaging if your job depended on kids like this?

Tell him there is a margin between the two programs. We can go downhill a TD and still embarrass Georgia.
