Will you say the exact same thing if we lose when he's watching our basketball team during his OV here? The reality is it's just some nice entertainment and doesn't factor into anything as far as these football recruits go.

Obviously, a win and a great crowd enhances the experience of the visit.

But even if we lose, we will still be .500 for Gamecock games that Sandidge has seen. If we go 2-0, it will give us a real boost.

I am not saying we get him if we win or lose him if we don't. But it helps.

The basketball game means basically nothing on an OV. He's about to get treated to an exceptional dinner and spend tons of quality time with the coaches at UGA, that's the only thing that matters. Then he'll do the same thing while he's here. The OV is just about building the relationship, if he were a basketball player you may have a point. He's a football player though. The basketball game is just an additional way to spend more time with the coaching staff, and it's treated like such, the result of the game as a 0% impact unless it's a Bruce Ellington or Evan Hinson thinking about both sports.

We won in Athens today. Probably won’t matter, but losing can never help.

And Gamecock defensive end target Rick Sandidge of Concord, NC was at Georgia over the weekend and took in the Gamecocks’ basketball win over the Bulldogs. He will visit North Carolina this weekend and USC on the 26th.

USC target OL Dylan Wonnum of Tucker, GA made his official visit to Auburn over the weekend. He is scheduled to visit USC on the 26th.
I think its a great sign that both of these guys are visiting on the same day.

I am not saying that winning the basketball game is a big deal in a recruit's decision. But it also is not zero percent.

Recruits want to play for a winner across the board, and one with strong fan support. Because that reflects on the support for football as well. If the team plays bad, the crowd is not good or enthusiastic, it dampens the experience and can put some doubt in the recruit's mind about the state of the athletic programs overall.

In the case of a school that is celebrating an SEC football championship and losing the Natty only because of (in the fan's minds) bad calls against them, it has about .0000001 percent influence. Now, an upset of Kentucky in front of a raucous home crowd might have more of positive effect on the fan "vibe" , but a loss to us is not much of a factor at all to UGA fans who care very little about basketball anyway.

We are talking about the impact of a win/loss on a recruit, not on the fans - especially when he is looking at both schools that are playing.

But I did hear some "disgruntlement" coming from the stands also, so the loss definitely put a damper on the festivities.

Again - I am not saying that it will be the deciding factor, or even a major factor. I am just saying it don't hurt, and is way more than .0000001 percent. The overall experience helps to sell the program, and I can guarantee that Kirby planned the visit around the playoff celebration and the South Carolina game for a reason, thinking that it was a likely win for the Dawgs.

Ask Kirby if he would have preferred if UGA won the game, LOL.

After his UGA visit, Coaches T-Rob, Thompson, and Bentley (all his primary recruiters) visited him, his family and HS coach for dinner Monday and re-state our position for him. Like that we jumped right back on him after his visit, to make sure whatever he took from it isn't the last thing he's thinking on for too long....

Based on what rankings? I see #12 on 247, but I can't find the one you're mentioning.

EDIT: I found it. I like 247's rating system better than Rivals', but we're all entitled to an opinion.
