    Yeah man. My info is only as good as it was when I wrote the short piece. I included the link that confirmed these kids were on commit watch. If I could control it I would. Not sure what to tell you.

    That's the way recruiting goes. My comments I made a month or two ago about some of my local players have not panned out either. The good news none of them can sign until December.

    I'm with ya bro. I appreciate when you bring stuff to the board. Unfortunately, for those of us that go out of our way to put together informative posts based on current up to date info....if it doesnt pan out, odds are ill get called out by one or a few.

    I'm not saying that's the case here. It's just been the case over the past several years that I've been doing this. When I'm putting together all this information it feels really good that I'm bringing it to the board and people are going to enjoy it however there are a few that if one or two don't commit right away then I'm an idiot in my info is bad and I don't know what I'm talking about blah blah blah you know the deal matherly.

    I'd say most posters on this forum such as @gatorplank, matherly candy, @dadx4, gray, die, @jhcrane, @jordan4vols, @StrangeGator, @MarineG8R, @AFCyberGator ....you get the point. I know I'm missing a ton of people on here but those are a few I can remember right off the of my head quickly...That wouldn't jump on somebody for not getting everything right.

    Sorry that was my rent for the evening

    I have no problem with people making predictions but when they simply say "Gator" I have a problem. Cuz it implies that the poster knows something more than the rest of us IMO.

    That person just may know more than he's letting on at the time.

    My post on page 1 was accurate, and later became true, but I’m not going to reveal names on a public board and steal a kids thunder. Let them enjoy the moment and do on their terms

    You're right. You absolutely don't. You're one of my favorite posters. As soon as I figure out if the tides are really turning...lol I like @pd_gator. He's good people. I know I missed a bunch of great guys and gals. Only a few call you out when going out on a recruiting limb. Love all of you..except Mattinohio

    I think what we are all working towards is the intent of our posts. None of us are intending to mislead other Gator fans but are trying to put forward the best info we can, regardless of the intentions of some adolescent teenagers. I'm just honored you would put my name next to Candy. LOL

    No worries dude. You bring good stuff to the board and we appreciate it. I enjoy scrolling the board and seeing you mention my glamorous points of view and knowledge!

    I shake my head when some posters take it personally. I wonder how much they actually follow recruiting when they're so upset?

    Perhaps Commitment Reconnaissance might be a better term than Watch, which implies that something is going to happen, while Reconnaisance merely implies a look-see to attempt to identify distant possibilities.

    Yeah, its kind of like the Anthony Schwartz commitment watch thread that was posted a year ago and he never commited to us.

    I could rename the title...Possibly the next to commit...but I took it from the article.
