    Gotcha. Agree. The only thing I've heard re: recruiting about Norvell is he has virtually no ties to the Florida recruiting base.

    Interesting stuff. If you scroll down on those links, there is an article that suggests Norvell will be the coach. As good a hire for them as they could reasonably expect.

    This article - and another I've seen - also says that Brian Kelly has been a candidate. Does anyone really see him leaving Notre Dame for FSU???

    Which apparently is a step up from Taggart, whatever connections he had must have been bad.

    Reading about FSU's possible bowl scenarios- I can't help but think about them in the Quick Lane Bowl. (Which is possible.)
    Think about that from a player standpoint.
    Leaving sunny Florida to go to "beautiful" Detroit Michigan to take on Kent State. (One possibility.)

    All to try to avoid a 6-7 season, playing for a coach who is on his way out.
    Wow- I'm depressed just thinking about it.

    Not exactly what the recruits had in mind when they signed for the Crims.

    Rooting like hell for Cincinnati this weekend, just to add to the let down of settling for Norvell after how high their hopes were.

    Plus with travel costs and low payout from such a crappy bowl, they'll likely lose money for their troubles.

    I have also seen them pegged with the Gasparilla Bowl vs the defending Nat’l Champs UCF or Shreveport to face WKY or Detroit to face Michigan State. I’m pulling for the Gasparilla Bowl for them and watch them get smacked around by their baby brother UCF

    Tick tock, tick tock
    The Seminoles are on the clock.
    The sands of time are almost done,
    For Gator fans a ton of fun.

    They wanted a 10, will settle for a 2,
    All have turned them down,
    Even me and you.
    They say their program is top 5
    But we know in truth it's barely alive.

    Tick tock, tick tock fsu is a laughingstock.
    The longer it goes the better we feel
    Still the rumor persists BGBs a done deal.

    Well, crap, it seems like all the people saying there was a huge smokescreen.... Were right. Sigh.



    And for those like me who only see bluebirds...
    The Dallas Renegades and head coach Bob Stoops walk onto the field at Arlington High School for the start of minicamp

    Holes are now saying they bagged Bob however his contractual obligations keep him doing the Dallas Renegade thing until this weekend.

    If he was truly going to the SOW it would be such a d*ck move to do all the media appearances with the Renegades, lead them into the first practice, and then quit. Stoops is not like that.

    Well, all the players appeared to be carrying ‘backpacks’..

    Should you still be referred to as “Big Game” Bob, walking on to a HS field for your first XFL practice?? That’s big league right there!

    And to help with this smokescreen, the search firm also was hired to help Dallas find a new coach.....
    Yes I heard that!

    Occam's razor comes to mind.....
