    I think we're elite already. Wouldn't surprise me one bit if we're in the playoffs this year. In fact, if DM and Grantham call good games all year I expect us to be there. Of course they could get out coached at the wrong time and we won't make it. Happened to the best coach we ever had a few times so ya never know.

    It wouldn't surprise you one bit? It would surprise the heck out of me. Do I think its possible? Definitely. But our coaches can call great games and still get beat. Many times it's the execution and not the playcall. It's the depth of the team. I love your optimism but we arent elite until we can prove it, and prove it repeatedly imo.

    I was there. Such a painful game. Especially since I was sick to begin with.

    We will. The talent gap is not as great as the recruiting geeks would have you believe with their ratings. And we have better coaches than all except MAYBE CU.

    I wonder what's the play with Xzavier. Bama coming into the picture and they're more than likely losing Juedy, Devonta Smith, and Ruggs this upcoming year and Waddle will then be a junior and the only experienced WR so that could be intriguing to him.

    Bama should always At this time be very intriguing for any recruit given the opportunity. Unless you’re a rabid fan of a certain college, why not. I didn’t go to college but if I were a football player and had the opportunity, Florida is the only option. There would be no second thoughts. That’s just not the case for most of these kids. Their favorite team is the flavor of the month.

    To me Henderson is a big one for the Gators and not just because his brother plays for the Gators.

    Somebody posted this on TOS and I didn't realize how dire this WR class is going to be until now:

    "If Henderson and Marks do not make it in to UF, our last 3 WR classes look like this:

    2017
    J Robinson - out of football
    D Green - transferred
    K Toney -

    2018
    J Watkins - kicked out
    J Copeland

    2019
    J Weston
    T Whittemore
    A Henderson - may not make it in
    D Marks - may not make it in"


    I don't think people realize the IMPORTANCE of this recruiting class as far as WR's go. At this point in time, it's our BIGGEST position of need

    I was there too. Shaun Alexander absolutely killed keith Kelsey. It was embarrassing. Travis taylor and Darrell Jackson were running wide open all game.

    From where I was sitting the XP looked good until I saw the officials wave it off. Ugh...

    Travis was out that game with his ankle injury iirc. Our core at WR that year was kinda trash in retrospect:

    Travis
    Darrell
    Alex Willis
    Reche Caldwell
    Brian Haugabrook
    Taylor Jacobs

    Trash? Do you realize all those players played in the NFL, some played a long time.

    Arian Smith is dropping his top schools Monday. I'm predicting us, FSU, UT, and Bama make the cut

    Then sending Jackson back there to field that punt - and compounding the stupidity by not telling him to not field the punt - to run away from the football. If we don't send anyone back to field that bloody punt, we win that game. Period.

    And that was, as CRL said, the best coach we've ever had, and imho, one of the 6-8 best cfb coaches ever. Remember, Saban tried that fg against Auburn with nothing but fat boys in to block. Then, there was Kirby, . . . wait, never mind.
