    Yeah, we shouldn't let a pesky thing like details get in the way of the narrative we want to create. No harm in attributing false quotes either. That's fine too.

    We lost a recruit. It sucks but it happens.

    The recruit more than likely made a bad decision except for the money part. He does get to keep the money.

    “Big boy pants”? You’re a freaking joke that’s whined all the way through UF picking up like 4 studs over the weekend — and in positions of need. You have clearly proven you have zero understanding of what this team needs and how well our staff has done addressing those needs this weekend. It’s a weekend to celebrate and you’re still bitching and whining. Who’s got the “personal problem”?

    Now run along son while we enjoy all that’s happening

    And I see Austin as the pawn in all this money grabbing. I’ll make a bet right now his dad’s ole miss thing doesn’t last.

    I'd just move past the one who chose elsewhere for, what, 1,500,000 reasons, plus $$$ for daddy, to sit 4-deep and focus on the HUGE commitments from yesterday! I don't have to know as much as I do about the kids who committed, and others who were already committed, to know which ones I'd rather be in a tough play-off game with . . . and who also wouldn't have quit because our schedule was "too tough." It's a lot easier sitting, 4-deep, and still getting 7-figures plus $$$ for daddy. That's certainly not "too tough."

    Grown middle aged men don't have tantrums over recruiting. Your posting history is awful. You also once said ruiz needs a bullet in the head.

    It's ok. We understand this is just you being unable to admit you have posted some pretty emotional and negative takes so now you are deflecting and projecting. It's ok boo

    Edit to add: Personally speaking, I don't like attacking or arguing with fellow Gator fans but you really are the pot calling the kettle black with this one.

    Dodgy deals with dodgy people don't usually work out all that well. Don't ask me how I found that out.

    tbh I can understand why you'd say that. I hope the staff pivots HARD towards Antwann Hill

    You know, I’ve wondered if Austin Simmons really did (does) like UF and Napier, and Kiffin bought his dad with last minute money. Or was he trolling us the whole time? I’m inclined to believe he really did like us, and if so he probably still does. So how do you think he feels about all this douchy trolling of UF by Kiffin, with Austin being the focus of it?

    I’d love to see this backfire on Kiffin. Probably won’t, but it could

    We believe Simmons was genuine with Florida until recently at least.

    Like I wrote in another thread, the trolling by Kiffin under the circumstances was low-rent and it won't be forgotten.

    25 is a long way away. I think we were working on 23 but whatever … he gone. We’ve had terrible luck at qb besides Lagway which is pretty muck jackpot.

    I would not put anything past Kiffin. If I were a recruit, I would be embarrassed about Kiffin doing that under my name.

    A move like that should have been in the works anyway. We’ve known for a while Simmons wasn’t waiting until ‘25.

    Don't buy that reason for a second. But what's he gonna say, "they gave us a better deal"???
