    Probably b/c he's only been playing football since his junior year and is still a little raw. But with that said, he still has his best football ahead of him.

    Wow, that's great. One thing's for sure: Muschamp isn't sitting around feeling bad for himself after last season.

    The football recruiting gurus don't seem to scout the boroughs as well as they scout the cornfields. Those schools are thought of as hoops schools. Took Easley most of the season to get the attention he deserved his senior year.

    Ecstatic to get Holley on board. He seems to have put some serious thought into his decision.

    We've lost some good recruits, but gained others at more critical positions. These class is starting to round itself out nicely.

    If by nicely you mean outstandingly, then yup. We certainly have some serious momentum.

    This D could be unbelievable if we get the linebackers to the level of our dline and secondary

    Actually he has 4 stars and ranked the #3 DT on 247. Maybe you have him confused with the #2 DT who does have 5 stars and is already committed to the Gators, Gerald Willis. Another 4 star DT, ranked #17 at his position is also a Gator. Clark, Willis and Holley should give us the best DT class in the country. We didn't do too badly last year and ended up redshirting two very talented DTs.

    Glad we're being patient with LB recruiting. After loading up last year, we didn't get in early on the top prospects so it looks like we're going to pass on remaining plan B types and go after the monstrous talent available next year. We've also been stockpiling redshirts. Should be plenty of competition among the backups this fall.

    Easy there. Carter's going to break your heart. Just be glad we got David Sharpe to protect Grier from Carter every year we play the dawns.
