UGA Football Fall Camp: Rodney Garner Discusses Roster Management

Recruiting coordinator Rodney Garner met with the media on Sunday and talked about Georgia well publicized roster attrition. The Bulldogs enter the 2012 season well below the 85 scholarship limit thanks in part to a number of player dismissals and transfers out of the program.

"We've had a lot of attrition," he said. "It's the way we run our program, I don't know what other people do, but I know we run a pretty stringent program. We've had some unfortunate things pop up. I'm not saying it's a common occurrence but there's probably other programs that are going through similar things depending on what kind of structure they have. I really like the quality of the young men we've got in the program."

Garner went on to describe the situation as a double-edged sword and voiced his support for the way Mark Richt runs the program.

"It's what do we want this program to be. It's a double-edged sword, but what do you want. You can sweep this under the rug, you can have this, you can have that, but is that really want you want?"
