    Kelvin Joseph: We should know Monday one way or the other. I'm hearing what all of you are hearing but it isn't final nor will be until Monday.

    Derrick Smith: He will announce this week and from the Insider board, Andrew says the staff has not made a decision to take him or not. I myself heard some like him more than others so again we should know something soon. MPO is if no KJ, UF needs him for depth.

    Suspensions and injuries: as of today rumor is, two out for UM game and one may be out due to concussion protocol for three total. Delance and Campbell are expected to be ready by game time. If Delance does not play, then King Richard will start. For UM the rumor is three will be out suspended including to top WR's. My friend down there tells me it could be 4. With Bethel and Smith in the portal UM is having depth concerns in the secondary also. Smith would have played. Bethel is probably headed to FIU or even UCF.

    Don't be surprised if Lil Man Tate plays some snaps at WR. He obviously knows the routes and Miamuh is thin at WR.

    What to expect when UM has the ball. With as many as 3 true Freshmen OL playing for the Canes, I suspect a lot of mis direction, quick passes, screens and a few deep ones hoping for a big play or even PI on the Gators. Heavy use of the TE position. For UF on defense I don't think CTG will blitz much as I suspect he thinks UF can pressure the QB with out it. That said, the timely blitz off the corner may happen a time or two.

    When UF has the ball: UF will try to be balanced and keep UM on their heels. UM will try to stop the run and get UF in obvious passing downs. If they don't it will be a long day for them. Look for CDM to go long early in the game just to keep the DB's backed up. Will Franks pick back up where he left off? Toney will get minimum 8 touches and Cope will play some. UF will also drive the UM Linebackers nuts with Krull and Pitts.

    Recruiting: well this is the recruiting board but being a Neutral Site Game, neither team can host prospects. Recruiting will pick up after next week. All in all, what I've heard and deciphered is UF is fine 4 months out from ESD. Two areas of some concern for many is RB and WR. My personal opinion is I'm not concerned with either of those spots even in the wake of the news Henderson did not qualify. Some are concerned with the secondary and someone said on the Insider board that the JC Saftey George was back in play. UF is in good shape with Gray and Avante is a +1 they will continue to recruit till he signs somewhere. I believe UF is better than even money at this time with AW. UF still needs to add a top CB to make me feel real good about the class. My choice is and always has been Jahquez Robinson. The fact that the staff did not go very hard after a couple of Message board favorites tells me they like the guys they have and feel good about someone else they want. Just saying.

    M'Ba: I think that correct, is back home taking some needed classes. Nothing will happen in his recruitment with any school until that is resolved.

    Jahari Rogers: Will play at corner for his HS team this year to help him in his development for the next level.

    Robinson/Smith/Williams/Henderson: 4 kids who could make a huge difference in this class. What will or should help UF is due to proximity they should be able to get them here for games much easier than Bama, Clemson or UGA. The frequency in which they visit should provide some indication of where UF stands for them. One was on campus last week.

    DL: Still on the board, the aforementioned Mr. Smith, Zykevious Walker, Donnel Harris and probably someone I'm forgetting as I type this. There is some thought that Signing Cox will help with Walker. I don't know. Harris would be a 2 year project in my mind before any serious PT but how could you not take those guys if they say I want in.

    Speaking of Cox: UF will try to get him eligible this year. If not, how is he looked at, a LB'er or rush in. If UF does not get who they want to go with Wingo, someone will be moving to LB IMO.

    The Second Transfer: The whispers of the 2nd transfer from UGA have went silent. Could it still happen? Yes, but I don't think it will at this point. That said, I do think uga will lose at least one more to the portal before the season starts.

    Any word on Marc Britt now that Koy pledged to LSU? I heard from a few people that Koy wanted on board with us but for w/e reason, we slow played him.

    Appreciate the write and while i'd love to have M'Ba, his situation just screams tom foolery from a mile away from a dude who's said that he'd like to be an EE come January.

    I could be wrong but I think Henderson and Portier are ahead of him on the board. A poster on the Insider board went to see potier in person and said he was a man among boys.
    As for M'Ba, I will be surprised if he is an early entry anywhere. However that's with out knowing where he is as far as grades and courses needed.

    Poitier went 5-124 against a very good defense last night.

    If he’s 3 stars then system is wack. His tape doesn’t lie. Kid can play.

    a while ago, well like a month ago, it was RUMORED to be Stewart and Slaton but i guess we'll have to wait and see. For Miami, some are saying Pope, JT4, and/or Ivey

    Crazy how the recruiting sites gave him 3 stars just like they did that fictitious player someone made up with measurables, offers and all and the recruiting services ranked him off the fake offer list. Smh

    I posted something about these two Gators a while back that they were probably going to miss the first game. I heard it was for smoking weed.

    I’m not holding my breath on positive news from the admissions department. No inside information, that is just my general rule

    My Cane friends have said that only Ivy is rumored to be suspended. The receivers will definitely be playing. (To be clear, the info comes from people like me that read message boards, so it is a true fwiw).
