    Frank Frangie was just saying on the radio with Bowman that it's Mama Bowman that wants son at Clemson and she wants Demarkcus to get away from the Lakeland boys. Not that they are bad kids, that's just her preference. Also said that Florida IS still in it with Bowman and it's not as sewn shut as Clemson will lead you to believe.

    Sounds like the same story we've been hearing.

    Weird. We just can't win with the parents for some reason. So many weirdos.

    The academic reputation of UF is wonderful. The facilities at Clemson are much superior. From a mother’s perspective, Clemson has not had the arrests, dismissals or negative stories and has gotten their kids drafted in the first round or money round

    Different police force and entirely different level of scrutiny from the media.

    Absolutely ridiculous to act like we have some different character athlete than other programs. Same kids. Difference is how the police and university handle them as well as the media. When Florida made headlines a few years ago for the number of arrests Georgia had more at the time but we made the headlines.

    I don't believe the world hates the gators and there is some conspiracy against us but there are differences for whatever reasons with perceptions. Look at the transfer portal scuttlebutt this year. Everyone joking that everyone is transferring away meanwhile there are more kids from other schools leaving than there are from us

    So "losing" Bowman is not simply CDM and staff having a bout of recruiting dysfunction?

    That's going to shake some world views around here. (Who am I kidding, of course it won't)

    We're the outlier school in the good old boy network, and the arrogant, 'poor winners' to our conference brethren. Gator Arrogance is real (and I wouldn't change it for a thing), but it leads to a wider demand any type of comeuppance.

    If I were not from Florida nor a UF fan I would be happy if my kid played for Dabo and Clemson. Why not? A big part of recruiting is confidence and credibility. Dabo has that at his program but it did not happen overnight. I guess our staff is not their yet but maybe it will happen.

    I'm disappointed in the NCAA for not crawling up Clemson's business about PEDs though. It's almost as if they said "within six months we need you to submit a list of "wrist slappable" secondary violations so we can have some cover here". But who knows.

    Why? They've never done anything to the gumps and I'm sure they've been using them since at least when Satan got there.

    Well, true maybe, if you don't consider the long secondary recruiting violation list and the multiple PED issues at Clemson. No program is perfect, some just seem to get more negative press.

    Yup. A Clemson booster paying players more than they should barely hit the news radar. Then again, some parents may see that as a positive.

    Money talks for those who don’t have... but honesty, trust, and reliability speaks to those who work hard and plan ahead.

    So the first part applies to 99% of top football recruits and the second part to 99% of Gator fans. Got it. :D
