Analysis:

Last season in a close game Clemson beat Georgia by 3 points, but the main reason the Bulldogs will win this home opener is RB Todd Gurley. Gurley is getting Heisman buzz in the pre-season and with good reason. Last season he rushed for over 900 yards, sharing the rushing duties, and averaged over 6 yards per carry. Facing Clemson last season he rushed for 2 TD and over 150 yards on only 12 carries.

Clemson does have some returning players to their D that ranked 24th last season, but their front line D will not be able to keep Gurley and company from racking up the yards on the ground.

Clemson was led by their offense last season, but they lost their starting QB, their leading rusher, and their top 2 WR’s. Not only that, but their leading returning rusher was lost for the season with a foot injury. Georgia’s defense is not a dominant one, but they will be better than last season, when they ranked 79th in the nation, and will play well facing a Clemson offense that will have growing pains with many new starters in the skill positions.

Andy Murray is gone from Georgia, but they have a solid senior QB in Hutson Mason. He could have left school to get more playing time somewhere else, but the Georgia boy decided to stay home and his senior leadership will help guide the offense. While Clemson lost their 2 top WR’s Georgia returns a couple of legit playmakers in Michael Bennett and Chris Conley.

Georgia’s offensive line has some key returning players and that is key in this game facing Clemson’s defensive star in Vic Beasley. At home last season Beasly was a beast in the backfield all game long and had 2 sacks, but the UGA O-line will make sure he does not repeat that performance.

Final Thoughts: Georgia has more key returning players with the one big one being Gurley. He will have another great game like last season facing the Tigers and Georgia will win this game and cover the 7.5-point spread.

    Twitter is a great push delivery engnie, but is not great for recruiting or jobseeking without help. Twitter can only be used as a job board if the jobs can be targeted towards the jobseekers that are interested. Simply tweeting a job on your account or via RSS doesn’t solve that problem. Why would a jobseeker want to follow that account? Jobseekers would get ALL the jobs. e.g. a sales rep in Boston would get IT jobs in San Francisco in his/her feed. Too much noise. We’ve built and intelligent layer on top of Twitter, and tweet jobs over an 8300 vertical job channel network on Twitter based on location and job type. Jobseekers simply follow the job channels they care about, and then only the jobs that apply to them will show up in their feed. Another issue that I’m very concerned about is that job openings have a timeframe. Once a job gets filled and removed from a job board, it should not be searchable. If Twitter is to become a job cloud , the companies and services that tweet jobs need to be responsible for removing the tweets when the jobs get filled. Otherwise, there will be job tweets with links to pages that say sorry, but this job is no longer available . Bad for the company brand, and bad for the jobseeker experience. All the major job tweeters (Monster, Careerbuilder, Hotjobs, twitterjobsearch, tweetajob, etc.) are fire and forget with their job tweets. TweetMyJOBS is the ONLY service out there (and we’ve looked) that removes the tweet when the job gets filled/removed. Check it out yourself: Go to any account being managed by the other services, go back a couple months on their timeline, and click on some job tweets. Any company doing an RSS feed to Twitter cannot remove the tweet. The Social Media Footprint being left here is analogous to a hiker who drops candy wrappers every 10 feet as he hikes up a mountain. This practice doesn’t help the quality of job tweets nor the jobseeker experience, and is leaving expired garbage on Twitter. Soon we’ll have Al Gore on Mashable talking about Twitter Warming
