This weekend’s funniest recruiting photos 

By Michael Carvell

If you’re a die-hand fan of recruiting, you’ve got to love Social Media.

You can follow your favorite prospect, and get instant updates on their recruiting journeys – directly from them, via FaceBook, Twitter and Instagram.

The media and general public loves it, too, because you sometimes get to see a different side of coaches who are supposed to come across as so mean and tough

In the last few weeks, we’ve seen Nick Saban doing the Electric Slide (he can definitely dance better than Taylor Swift).

Here’s the money shot for this weekend … Mark Richt with Bryson Allen-Williams (purple hat), Detric Dukes (photo-bomber to the left), Dominick Sanders (gray sweatshirt), Andrew Williams (holding his cell phone) and Lorenzo Carter (the No. 1 sign). Richt looks amused, doesn’t he?

New Alabama offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin was one of the most bizarre hirings I can ever remember. Here’s a picture of Kiffin with a recruit and wearing a “Duck Dynasty” hat. An attempt to fit into the Southern culture? What’s next for Kiffin? Some infamous Bama bangs? You’ve got to love that he’s trying.

Here’s Mark Richt in a “selfie” with defensive lineman Andrew Williams of ELCA.

More from the group with Allen-Williams. Nice pose, coach.

Some Dawg fans are being unrealistic ......With statements like" we can't get them all" that's what separates Uga from the elite... The rich never seems to have that problem they load talent on talent and have the lucxery of picking and choosing.....Don't get it twisted ,we recruit very well upper talent level, we just don't clean house......Another statement that's disillusioned is Garner had been "the problem in" our recruiting.PLEASE!!! Stop it!!!  I will say this...Garner started slipping his last two yrs in Athens in recruiting....But let's be real about it, we would have "still"... been loosing BigTime talent to the Vols, FSU , Clem & Aub like back in the day..Terry Bowden's Auburn declined in talent when he left the first time, the Vols declined also in talent.... When Garner became our recruiting coordinator we were MORE talented than the majority of the teams we played ....that includes FSU, Clem, Aub ,Bama and  the Vols.....And LSU & Fla our  equal in talent....We DAWGS forget when we had under size Safeties like Kirby & Muschamp who today would not make it as a walk-on at Uga...He help bring NFL type talent to Athens and in my opinion the best recruiter in the SEC area over the last 20 yrs are so.He may not have been an elite coach, but he is an Elite recruiter. Many blame him for the SEC CCG against Bama,  if you know football you can't block 3 or 4 on 7.

As for Garner it was time ...I really am excited about our new staff and what they bring....As for Ga Tech?  What a shame when Vandy  and Stanford do circles around  you in your backyard!!! Go Dawgs!!!

At first I thought, "surely there won't be any pictures of Mark Richt making an @$$ of himself".... 

Should have known better.

'Preciate the funny photos, Michael, but don't tag a post with "Georgia Tech" and "ACC" if exactly zero of the content has to do with either of those two subjects...

Saying you "know" who is going where on an ajc blog immediately discounts you. A lot of people's livelihood depend on accurately predicting this stuff and they actually do "know" better than anyone outside if the players and their immediate circle.

Besides Carter, the Williams kid looks great on tape - he would be a last minute steal - but I'd take an OL flip over anything.

I wish the UGA Insider would come back so we could know what is going to happen.

I hate Alabama and when they hired Kiffin I was ecstatic. Saban and Lame Kitten are circling the commode. I hope it doesn't clog.

richt has proved that he is the peoples coach and the news of us being ranked number one in academics makes him the coach k of college football or should we instead call coach k the mark richt of college basketball!

my favorite picture was the one of  the bama player that nick satan cut from the team because he oversigned now they have to pay there own way.  i guess they could post a picture of a bucket of vomit with a a on it

@Upnorthgc So how do you "know" that Carter isn't coming to UGA? I would agree that BAW and Williams are long shots, but nothings final until Wednesday.
