    THIS is why college coaches want to coach in the pros. Imagine your livelihood hanging on the decision making skills of kids.

    They should stop using the word "commit" in college recruiting. Commitment is supposed to mean something. It doesn't mean a preference at the moment.

    It’s all on Gilbert at this point. His grades, or lack there of really cost him, and us. But we have great depth at tightend. Though I doubt any of them are as athletic as him. We will be fine. I’d be shocked if he doesn’t enroll in a juco school. He’s got almost 3 semesters to make up.

    Well... that escalated quickly.
    If it's grades, do we not vet the kid's transcript?

    That headline should have been the whole article. All the other words were just letters strung together, saying nothing. I know dude had to get his 500 words in, but sheeseh.

    I'd bet $$$$$ there is a exception made for him to join either the butt-sniffing LegHumpers or the Gumps. I'd just like to know what the winning bid was.

    Ain’t gonna lose sleep .. Playing golf tomorrow is much more on my mind than worrying about a kid that will never win you a game . Looks to be a disaster academics wise . We don’t need bs like this hanging around and looking like a damn remedial directional school! Move on boys

    Instead of “decommiting”, why can’t the headline say ‘couldn’t academically qualify for enrollment at UF’?? Clear the deck of all rutabagas that have no business or desire to be student at a supposed institution of higher learning. These guys make a mockery of the university system.

    "I have decided to decommit from the university of Florida and re-enter the portal," Gilbert wrote in a tweet. I will not be announcing my final decision until I am enrolled into school and on campus."

    Would agree except for the fact that GA started recruiting lights out as soon as Kirby arrived, before they ever won the SEC and went to the playoffs.

    How many guys did we drop in February for this guy?

    How hard is it to ask, "What are your grades like?"

    I swear our staff lives on hopes and dreams and nothing else

    Assuming this isn’t grades related ...this is our first “decommit” from the portal I can recall
