    That’s because I enjoy reading message boards, like this one.

    Dan Mullen is a hell of a coach and people have gotten so wrapped up into stars, they’ve forgotten that coaching is what matters most. You can have all the glitzy and glamorous 4 and 5 stars all you want, but you need a coach..

    you have that in Mullen.

    If you win, then high profile recruits will come.

    Signing period has moved up to December in case you didn’t realize , so July is now like Sept in the timeline.

    I’ve never panicked in September either and I don’t think the early signing period has slipped by anyone. It’s concerning but nothing to get too worked up a loud just yet. No sense in filling up early with better guys still on our board. It’s easy to see and understandable that some at the top of our board are waiting to see the product on the field.

    I would expect a few public verbal commits this upcoming week. If they do not come, you could have s good argument regarding coaching staffs closing skills and ability to obtain public commits. Silents are meaningless to building a class. If you can’t make your commitment public, really not certain of your decision

    I agree, and from what I know, I will be shocked if we don't get some public verbals in the next few days.

    True but those guys are also being picked off by the likes of FSU and Tenn. So yeah I’m not expecting much. Maybe next year

    After what is the recent trend you would be shocked? I’d be shocked if we just could get a couple

    No, I know the timeline. I just don't feel the need to inventory and lament daily the things don't fall perfectly in line 60% of the way through a complex process. None of the pissing and moaning has much justification (or validity) until the class is signed.

    More so now that we're devolving to fears over the fabricated rankings of mediocre teams ahead of us that have 5-8 more commits at the moment. As obviously very few of them will be ahead of us when things are finalized in several months, simply as we will sign similar numbers (underscoring one of the significant limits in worshiping at the altar of recruiting rankings in the first place).

    The timeline moving up isn't that significant, as I can't remember a September where a major portion of a UF class wasn't in flux either. UF has always been a July-Feb recruiting dynamic.

    Early signing and a new coaching staff is inconvenient, but there is still the season to play and headway to be made. Might as well see what the results are rather than assuming disaster, even if one believes this is a make or break class for the program. (It's not).

    Probably a little too fired up. I'm going to go beat the crap out of my door to take the edge off like the dude in that UGA video on the other thread.

    Be nice when the season starts.

    Those uncommittable offers will become committable if we don’t get the ones we want. I’m thinking mid teens is where this class is headed unless we lose a bunch of games and look like the hot garbage we’ve been the last several years. Another losing season and we deserve to have a record recruiting year in the wrong direction.

    First time I've been. It was pretty low key. Maybe that's the way they want it but i couldn't help thinking about all these ideas to make it an off the charts experience like no other.

    I keep checking back to see if the sky has fallen yet. Guess not, maybe tomorrow or the next day :D. Bottom line, is the situation (what we know as mb posters/followers) great? No, not at all. But it often takes a while after fnl for a few to pop. Many were before and now most likely are, hate to say it, not public commits for a while. I am as eager as anyone to hear them start rolling in. We just have to be patient and some people need to put the torches down. TOS is probably just as bad if not worse right now, people are losing their sh!t over this. It will be alright.
