I bet we could have AT LEAST one more National Championship

if we had recruited Hershel Walker.


Why didn't we recruit Hershel Walker ?

but Georgia did two things Clemson didn't do.

Georgia bought him a brand new Trans AM and then they gave his sister, Veronica, a full track scholarship

In fact, Vince Dooley started the women's track program at Georgia just so he could give Veronica a scholarship.

Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.


And Veronica's son is named Milan Richard............

I asked Milan at a baseball game last month - who was faster his Mom or him? He said probably she was.
Clemson vs Georgia was THE most intense recruiting battle ever! I will always believe that Herschell really
wanted to go to Clemson. Maybe that's why his nephew is here.
Rumors about the TransAm are uncertain, but the track scholarship for Veronica is a fact for sure.

I've heard Coach Ford tell the Trans AM story...

more than a time or two.

Walker always maintained that his father bought the car for him.

Same reason we didn't recruit Todd Gurley. Oh wait, we did.

Soz. The Dawgs win the 2018 National Championship, followed by Clemson in 2019?

My great uncle used to tell the story all the time. We didn't get out recruited. We got out bid. Georgia offered more than we did. Plan and simple
