    Maybe, but having Floyd and Easley the last few years has been quite a luxury. We haven't signed a DT of that caliber since then. We need two good ones, but we could really use at least one elite DT instead of relying one of the current DTs (or DEs) to turn out to be a diamond in the rough.

    Agree about DE/Buck, but there's room for both.

    I think Brantley Bostwick and Reed are as talented as any DLmen in the country in last years class. Brantley drop in ranking because of lask of motor at times. Bostwick didnt camp or play in an all star game so he was a little unknown. Reed was in JUCO but those 3 are elite talent wise.

    Hope you're right. There's not an obvious first round draft pick among them, but as a group, they are very promising. Especially excited about Bostwick's athleticism.

    I think Bostwick has the elite combo of size and athleticism that could land him in the first round someday. Will depend on the work ethic, but I think the raw ability and physical attributes are there.

    Bostiwck has 1st round talent and should be a special player at Florida. Brantley has 1st round talent but I am a little worried about how he will take hard coaching.

    You are right, I hope Brantley can take to pressure of hard coaching, and not pout and quit on a great opportunity.

    MY version of the truth is that he is a super person with a super history.
    His time on the road was the least of any coach. By far. His family demands grew too much. He was asked to stay through recruiting season. He did. Now, we have another coach and he IS a lights out recruiter.

    Stevo, I don't disagree at all, I was just trying to point out he was not some slacker and had a lot more ground to make up than other coaches with Florida caliber recruits.

    Position coaches in college football probably have to put in more hours away from home than most high powered sales jobs. Looking at it from the time commitment, I can see how it didn't work out. Having a big family is not conducive to succeeding at a high level in any competitive endeavor. Just having one special needs child has held me back. Even a stay-at-home mom isn't enough if there are six kids. Dad's gotta be there. My brother had to end a promising political career because of the time required away from home. (One of his kids has a congenital heart problem.) At some point you have to make a choice. If you don't, that decision may be made for you.

    You have no idea the impact he had on developing the DT's; not only technique but becoming a man. Just ask any one of the returning DL he coached. Recruiting he did not need to say much when he came on campus. He has the it factor.
