    Unfortunately it’s not Miami or FSU that are taking all the top FL talent. It’s the Bamas, Clemsons and LSUs of the world and their extra benefits.

    FSU will be hiring a coach who went 0-1 in head to head matchups against Willie Taggart.

    Up until last year, FSU got their fair share of the high 4 star and 5 star talent from Florida. Look at the recruiting websites. If we can get a third of the 5 star and high 4 star talent from Florida and continue to cherry pick Georgia, NC, and Alabama, we will be in very good shape.

    Norvell is rumored to have his own peersonal issues, but the culture he's stepping into at fsu is something which has festered for at least the days of Sebastion Janikowski, and that's the rape culture at fsu.

    Nolie fans can act like its not there, but it is, and even the former fsu Women's Advocate has acknowledged that too.

    How do you think fsu was able to recruit a lot of the players they have over the years? Winston chose them because he knew he'd be able to basically do what he wanted without much interference.

    Norvell has a huge job ahead of him, and a lot of it will be dealing with a culture as well as trying to win football games.

    Its why so many coaches told fsu no.

    With FSWho already losing three committs, and early signing day rapidly approaching....

    Even if it IS Norvell who wades into that hot mess is pretty much doomed for the next several years....
    What will he do with Odell Haggins??? Keep him, and many "faithful" , who wanted him as their coach might tend to revolt.... Fire him, and he might get sa full-on revolt on his hands..

    He has no ties to the Florida recruiting base, and he's gonna have to scramble to put a coaching staff together.

    And....then comes the real fun.... trying to wade into that cesspool of "culture", and trying to fix that???? That alone could give even a young coach a stroke.

    I just looked really quickly, and FSU signed 26 kids from 2016-2018 (Fisher's last year and beyond) that were rated a 0.93 and above, which I consider a high 4 star. We had 16 during those same 3 years. That's a big difference. If we are getting to cherry pick from the kids that would have come to us during those 3 years (16) and had the attention of the 26 that FSU signed, and lets say got have of them, that would be 29 players that are a combo of high 4 stars with some 5 stars mixed in.

    Not sure why you consider this garbage but Mullen went after MSU commits when he got hired.

    Maybe he was talking about the FSU roster - that FSU needing Memphis recruits makes the roster garbage

    *******************10:00 PM UPDATE************

    Ah...The slobbering begins with the expectation of the expected announcement tomorrow at 12:00 Noon.....

    The 4 milk crates and a piece of plywood, so hastily "constructed" in lieu of a real podium stands at the ready....although they're still trying to figure out how to attach the microphones...

    The anticipation of the hire of a measly "Group of 5" Head Coach has divided the Nolies, with half of them condemning the hire, as a "last ditch" effort, and the other half proclaiming the "second coming" of Bobby Bowden.....
    The jury's still out on this one....

    Josh Newberg reports that there are two lynch mobs gathering on campus, saying that one of those groups are gonna have a field day over the announcement....

    Trusted insiders are clamoring to be the first in line, to say See?...I told ESPN about Norvell months ago."

    "Air Farce One" will be circling Tallacrappy tomorrow at Noon....revealing that they are actually a stealth B-52 bomber, and that they just might decide to put an end to the misery.
