    Zipperer returning and 2 other TE recruits in the pipeline.

    We will be fine at TE.

    I just don't want him to announce "I am going to attend the University of Florida State."

    HUGE loss. We dont have anyone in the TE room like that dude. Im with the poster above who said the media should tell the REAL story. If its grades - "Arik Gilbert not attending UF because he doesnt have the grades to qualify". Instead they report he "de-committed". Makes it seem like Mullen and staff did something to lose him or he wasnt happy. Maybe they arent allowed to. But this one hurts.

    They dropped nobody for him. And it appears he had no grades, pretty clear he has a lot of work this spring summer. This kid is a classic "plus one", he is so talented you make room, but I see no evidence UF ever counted on him being here. They signed 2 TE's, the position is probably to full if anything.
    You are the one assuming the staff didn't know his academics or were somehow surprised. There is no evidence of that.

    If it not grades, I can c Kirby yelling him we will be running a different offense. Failing to mention Aron Hernandez did quite well with TT and DM. Seeing articles this am about people thinking UG lands him.

    If we had to provide evidence and citations for any of this speculation, no one would be allowed to post on this board - both of us included.

    What we do know is that we only used 26 counters. Everything beyond that was gleaned from internet sources who have a track record of providing incomplete, misinformed or wholly incompetent information. If you want to wring your hands through that bowl of oatmeal -- be my guest.

    Thus my point...why "assume" UF screwed anything up? But one can apply simple logic based on the available information, that usually provides the clearest picture.

    That was not your point.

    You said, "they dropped nobody for him" That is a positive claim that requires evidence. Then you ask for evidence when you, yourself, failed to live up to the same standard. That was my point.

    That's true of one line....but wasn't the overall "point" of the entire post.
    By the way, they still didn't drop anyone for him:rolleyes:

    If the issue is grades as have been suggested, then it might be very difficult for DM to elevate his recruiting rankings if the school admissions isn't on the same page. Might be why the same cast of characters is up on the recruiting rankings every year, lower academic standards for players. Sucks but it is what it is.

    Sadly, if this is true, and Dan is smart, he will eventually leave for a school that will allow him to recruit top talent. Until then he’s swimming against the current. Needs to be fixed ASAP.
