I'm fixing it, it's on me.
I'm not so sure about that anymore
Yeah exactly. Nice example there bud.
Whiff whiff whiff
Auburn has an offensive-minded coach. To this point, we haven't.
Remember, this time last year, fsu wanted jimbo out... Roper might be what the doctor ordered. Things can change in one season. For example, Auburn/FSU. Just sayin'.... I have faith. Or at least I'm attempting to. GO GATORS!
Alfred E. Muschimp
What? Are you telling me fans tend to be fickle and overreact?! Pssssssh, you and your logic. Some people need to get their jimmies un-rustled.
It's clear as day to most of us why they are fleeing. We put a bandaid on a gunshot wound and are trying to sell that to young scholar athletes. It's one thing to ask our fans to be patient and trust the direction of this program, it's another to ask players and recruits to do that.
Did Lane change his commitment? I am tracking Cook but not Lane
Once again, I'm reminded why I'm happy not to have to depend on some of you when the chips are down. Sheesh.
Soft verbal, ATM.
Things were down in that we had a horrible year but the glimmer of hope was that we had a decent offensive recruiting class last year and appeared to be doing it again this year and the year after making serious strides in there heart of Miami. That all has imploded. We are left with the current roster and a few additions and maybe if we are lucky a couple of plan b guys that we will fight Minnesota and temple and other mediocre programs for. In addition, we may be losing a couple more who have been wavering. This team is not talented nor deep enough to lose several key pieces. That glimmer of hope we had to turn this around is dimming. Where is the explosiveness? Where are the playmakers? We're going to have to run the ball with Taylor and lane and hope for 7 to 12 play drives because this offense lacks that electric playmaker. Cook was that guy. Basically that is the offense we have been trying to run for the past three years. We need wrs! We need oline! Look at alabamas oline class this year. That is the type of class the gators needed to pull in. Finally, we destroyed whatever progress we appeared to have made in recruiting Miami.
Unless muschamp somehow closes strong, this weak offensive class from a playmaker perspective will be his downfall.
No, you just want to dig your head in the sand and pretend that everything is ok. Doesn't look like many players want to play for this team. But you just close your eyes, cover our ears, and pretend all is good….
A minor hiccup. Muschamps mis-steps are approaching legion.
I just cannot believe what a disaster this is turning into. If this is not turned around this coming season, Foley should be held responsible as well as WM, IMO.
This recruiting class falls apart, you cut ties now because you do not want to destroy a second recruiting class next year.
Recruiting is usually the glimmer of hope during a down year but even that is trending down now. Moving forward, any serious offensive firepower is going to have to come almost entirely from one single recruiting class (2013) which is obviously not ideal. And in the 2014 class we are not able to take a lot of bodies so we really needed to score some good quality as opposed to quantity. That's why losing Cook is so damaging, and would be with Lane as well. Because of that, not to mention the Miami-Dade inroads, they were they perfect recruits to nab and were at least a small feather Muschamp could put in his cap for this year.
Grier and Sharpe were must-haves but they don't make a class. Therefore Muschamp would have 3 out of 4 offensive recruiting classes that were mediocre at best and clearly failed to address serious needs at the time. Not good.
Holy cow I just looked at Bama's OL recruits:
#1 OT (JC)
If you call taking the money and running then yes they will be held responsible. This will not end well. But, it will end and the Gators will be back!
The Gator coaches are excellent recruiters. Those that are bolting are generally very high end prospects that have a lot of options and only selected the Gators by a bit in the first place.
If I were a high school offensive juggernaut, and I saw an offense that had been worse than the top 100 for 3 years in a row, I might rethink my commitment also.
However, I do think that is is possible for Roper to change things. If he does, and assuming there aren't 95 crippling injuries next fall like there were this fall, then we should see things turn around.
