    The staff is working hard and we will end up much better than when many thought the sky was falling.

    As long as we use all our ships to get the depth we need, I will be happy. We have a strong list and I am fine with any of them.

    Again and I agree he was an EARLY USCw lean, but that was Ed o. And lane kiffin, and they're now gone. He's having to establish a brand new relationship with this staff as opposed to having been visited by us for well over a year now. Just on a percentage basis I would think UF would hold a majority lead so to speak.

    You remain absolutely adorable. Look at you: All grown up!

    I am a bit confused. First you complained that I had no inside information and therefore could not really say whether or not you are being overly optimistic. Now you say that the class projections in this thread are wish lists and not meant to reflect actual projections. I am not sure if this is accurate--i.e., I think people are projecting classes not merely expressing what they hope to be true--but I am happy we agree that the "wish list" set out in this thread "tend to be overly optimistic".

    Everything else you say in your post is well said and wise and I have no quarrel with it. In fact, I want to clarify something I wrote and explain my frustration. Over the past two years (and I think that this was especially true two years ago), we had very good classes which seemed to "close" very badly. There were three factors: first, Muschamp locked in the players he needed to lock in and the remaining players (those which "closed" the class) were always meant to be the cherries on top rather than the meat--it was only natural that we would miss on a lot of them. Second, I think we have had some bad luck. (If you are going to close any given class with a handful of players who are up in the air, the difference between getting most of them, getting some of them, or getting none of them is really down to luck.) But third, and I want to emphasize this point, the classes also seemed to close badly because people on this board were projecting that we would get every remaining target--and then it seemed like a failure when we did not.

    So if your point is that Muschamp should get credit for a solid class following a difficult year no matter what happens on signing day, then I would agree. I just do not think that posts like mine are what is causing the distorted expectations.

    You know what - mea culpa. I though that Newberg was retweeting a Harris tweet. Instead, he is purporting to quote Harris's...what? text? email? I assume that Newberg is not lying, but I would agree that what Harris tells Newberg is less significant than a "public statement" like a tweet.

    I hope that we get Harris. If he were not visiting two other schools before signing day, I might feel more confident about him. Let's see what happens. I would love to be wrong.

    Visiting means undecided at this point which is more of a worry to where he is commited than where he visits. It means we have a shot...

    Yes. You are confused. You're responding to somebody else now.

    That's a helluva lot of stuff to type and then just strike it out. When you figure out what portions of this you really want to say, feel free to confirm. Or not. Your choice.

    As far as wish lists vs projections, when somebody says "here's who I project in this class", that is a projection.

    When somebody says, "here's who I'd take", that's their personal wish list. That is the overwhelming majority of this thread as far as I can tell.

    Ha! I have no idea why it is crossed out. I didn't do it. Either it is a cruel trick by the forum powers that be or it reflects my technological idiocy - or both.

    No worries, besides you probably are better off with us as the welcoming party as opposed to the group with the pitchforks:) sure we're bringing a half FULL glass to pitchfork fight but we survived. Mid season gets pretty rough too so prepare yourself through spring, you'll need all the reps you can get.:confused:

    Lmao. It literally just took me 3 tries to hit the damn "funny" button on my S4. I swear my finger was lined up with it.

    Oh.....and before anybody starts, talk of sobriety makes me nauseous:confused:

    I am so sick of posters on this board who have no sense of humor or irony and would not know a joke if it fell out of the sky and hit them on the head. By the way, that is not how you spell ass.
