    Can't blame Taylor. He wants to play for a team that actually throws to a TE once in a whole.

    Actually Taylor has never gained enough weight to play. He's listed at 224 on the roster. I think that's why he's leaving so best of luck to him.

    But that still leads me to question why we have two 215lb TEs committed in this class. Did we not learn?

    Most kids can easily put on 30 pounds in 2 years. Every body is different, but it's expected. Kent, apparently, was an exception. I've never seen a player basically put on zero pounds in 2 years when it was badly needed.

    Well, our two 215ers need closer to 50lbs really. Thing is, I don't feel like we have 2 years to wait. It's normal to have TE prospects that aren't 250lbs out of HS. But I would think our target would be guys that only need 10-20lbs to be a blocking/receiving threat. Maybe I'm wrong but are there many TEs out there making an impact at 240ish?

    Completely Agree. It would indicate that no overall progress was being made and lessons are not being learned. It would indicate that Muschamp is too stubborn to make necessary changes to move the program past mediocrity.

    My impression is that he is very knowledgeable when it comes to recruiting. He must spend a lot of time evaluating prospects which is good, because someone has to do it. I neither have the time or interest to do so.

    As for the current state of the program and the quality of the coaching staff, I couldn't disagree with him more. I find him to be an apologist and excuse maker for Muschamp and Driskel.

    It's easy to be "knowledgeable" about something that most others don't follow that closely and you can't really ever be proven wrong about.

    This season he's been more than exposed on a number of issues regarding our football team, no matter how emphatically and repeatedly he tried to make his points.

    I don't mean this to discredit anyone, but there are a lot of people who subscribe to other sites and get recruiting info and pass it along to the free sites. That's not to say they can't add their own commentary and evaluation, which is fine too.

    I'm not complaining. I really appreciate that there are people willing to do that.

    Yeah but still kind of phony.
