    Knew it.

    But wait a minute, Clemson lost their bowl game and OU won theirs....doesn’t bowl game results suppose to matter for recruits!?!?!?

    Now they have Leigh and Tate at OL. Dayum

    Clemson saw that OL performance last night and dropped a second bag.

    He did give us plenty of chance. We really need to recruit much better at OL. It’s almost like we are afraid of recruiting 5 stars OLs!

    Leatherwood miss 2.0

    Same as it ever was for us (yes, I know that was under McNuss).

    worst part is that he’s a package deal with his younger brother (‘22 kid IIRC), so in reality Clemson will likely get both.

    Just to be clear, it was NEVER going to be UF. It was always OU but Clemson swooped in late

    Not really close, as Bobby pointed out, Leigh was never going to UF. Leatherwood was someone who was actually interested and if you believe the stories, was set to flip to UF before Saban got word and talked him out of it.

    Man, the hits are coming hard. Dan needs to take some damage control action, because things are in a free-fall right now.

    UF was probably the last choice on that table

    right lol. Not from our state and had better teams as other options, it was obvious we were just a prop on the table. With that being said, remind me again why we’re keeping Hev??

    If you believe that Mullen would never fire Knox, he would fire Knox before he would Hev or Gonzales.

    I don’t think it’s a burden. I think most players don’t care ...maybe 1 in a thousand. The best players are not choosing any school because of academics. It ain’t a selling point at all to them. Yet we tout it all the time.

    I remember when UF was recruiting an OL named Kevin Breedlove in the late 90's. I worked with his father, so he'd tell me stories of what HC's would tell his son as part of their pitch. He said that Spurrier told him "We will win a lot of games if you come to UF .... and we will also win a lot of games if you do not".
