    I believe it was more our style of play and UG style of play. Spread vs pro and some spread

    I guess we have to ask why we think we had him when he never committed. The overlooked narrative is that he decommitted from Alabama then committed to georgia. Saban's probably not too happy about this either.

    Bottom line is he never committed to us. I don't see this as a loss on our end. Now AR, if we don't end up getting him. I consider that a loss. Mullen will continue to have my trust through it all though. I'll be excited to see who signs on board this Championship train. The rest will be Gator Bait.

    The LOI isn't in. Alot can change over the next 9 months.

    For those without an Athletic account, the article basically paints us as Beck's plan B, with Georgia as the dream school the whole time.

    If he grew up a Georgia fan, move on. A true Georgia fan would never consider playing for us.

    Traitor to the State. In Bama, the family would be shunned by boss, coworkers, teachers, and neighbors

    In the 2019 class 5 of the top 8 players in the state of Alabama went to schools out of state. We got 1 & 2, you guys got 5, Miami got 7 and Clemson got 8.

    Between people moving around so much now and the fact that so many games are so easily accessible, you have to think the home state advantage matters less and less in modern day recruiting.

    Seems clear now but did "we" not know?

    It's a good question. I tend to doubt Beck told Mullen he was just killing time until he got a Georgia offer and we were just his safety school. And it certainly looks like we put most - if not all - of our quarterback eggs in Beck's basket.

    Thankfully there's a lot of time left. And I'm not saying Beck would not have been great at UF under Mullen but he's certainly not the type of QB Mullen is used to working with.

    If coach Mullen likes Beck and Beck makes the visit to The Swamp this month or this fall, then the Gators would still have a chance to get him. Otherwise, we have to move on. That’s my thought.
