Breathe deeply

A quick story for you this morning:

Back when Luther Burden decommitted from Oklahoma (and the rumor at the time was that he was flipping to Missouri), I approached a good friend of mine who roots for the Sooners pretty passionately. I rubbed the decommitment in ever so slightly, remarking that Mizzou was about to take away one of the Sooners’ prized recruits.

Her response? A sarcastic, “Oh noooooo, what’re we going to do without him?”

I imagine the same thing may be said of most Georgia fans should Burden commit to Missouri today. They can pretty easily brush it off because after all they’re bound to get another five-star at some point.

I don’t really have any takeaways from this story. I just think it must be nice to root for a football team whose trajectory won’t wholly change based on the commitment of one high schooler.

  • Even after the weekend visit to Georgia, no changes in the 247 Crystal Ball, even from Allen Trieu who picked Missouri at the end of September. Trieu wrote this about Burden’s commitment yesterday.
