I'm guessing a lot of readers have seen the story about Isaiah Crowell's mother expressing anger at the possibility that UGA offered her son's best friend in order to influence his decision. She won't "sell my son's soul to the devil," as she put it. She also said she intends to raise this with the UGA staff on Isaiah's upcoming official visit, right before she talked about how swimmingly well the visit to Tuscaloosa went.
Have any of you heard of this type of reaction to a "buddy" offer? I mean, maybe it works, maybe it doesn't, but if it actually hurts the recruiting effort, that's pretty bad.
Now for all I know, Crowell and his family have already decided (as we've heard rumored often lately) he's going to Bama, and she's mad at the Georgia staff for trying to go around her and appeal to her son through his best friend. Or maybe he's going to Bama and she's looking for a good rationalization to give to disappointed Georgia fans in her circle and community. I can't quite think of anything good about the situation, unless she's just joshin.' Man, recruiting is a tough business.
