    I was talking with my buddy about that the other day , I don’t think it’s debatable. I think urbs is hands down the greatest recruiter of all time. He just is. That dude was a gd grinder

    Oh dude we aren’t closing the gap with them at all. Will Miles laid it out nicely on Read and Reaction a week or so ago each class since Mullen has gotten here as been .9100 to .9000. His classes have been deeper than Mac’s but they have similar ceilings. I can understand the staff he put together to transition from a continuity perspective which has worked outs mind you. However they haven’t been able to take it to the next level, and won’t when half the staff are poor recruiters. In a state loaded with RBs, WRs, and DBs we have below average recruiters in each of those spots.

    Another thing that's smoking mirrors with this recruiting staff, let's look at last years class... Mullen apologist hang their hat on his top 10 finish in recruiting.. You lost 5 of your top recruits before they played a down at Florida...
    You were already behind Georgia, LSU, Alabama, Texas A&M, and I think Auburn I'm not completely sure about them... After you lost 5 guys in your class you are clean out of the top 10 and it makes you almost 2 years behind the top teams... You may get a transfer but it doesnt make up for 5 guys you've lost...

    This year's class has lost 1 already...With The luck of this staff you dont know what may happen next with the recruits coming in..

    UF isn't the only school to lose guys, although the 5 in that class was a big and unusual hit. By the same token, UF has done better than "get a transfer"....one could argue the portal has more than made up for the losses in the recruiting classes. UF basically had 6 starters last season that were portal guys, should have major contributors again next year. The roster isn't perfect (as is true most places) but UF isn't "2 years behind the top teams"

    I thought Josh Braun was rated higher than him... either way it's a travesty

    Josh Braun is obviously a solid lineman, and I suspect Leonard will be considered highly before long

    As much as we want to bitch about our line coach I think those guys may be a nice surprise

    That could be a reference in jest to an idiot scUM fan called "canething" who used to frequent UF boards some time ago. I believe he actually introduced the "smoking mirrors" malapropism to the cyber world in an attempt to demean some positive occurrence in Gatorville - possibly on this very board if I'm not mistaken. Although he missed the mark in his cheap shot at UF, he did succeed in cementing a place for himself in the cyber doofus HOF.
