    With Henderson going to UF would Parrish (former team mate ) follow him to UF.

    Are you kidding me?! This is an absolute recruiting DISASTER! Honestly I don't think this staff knows the first thing about recruiting! I dread NSD next month, there's no way we close strong now, especially if they keep getting commits like this prematurely.

    It's never going to be the coaches ability for you, isn't it? They just lucked in, or some rival's coach left.

    I’m not totally sure that’s English my man. At the very least your verbiage is askew. It’s no doubt a gross representation of the overall theme of what I’m on record as saying my feelings are.

    I'm definitely nitpicking... but my only criticism about this WR class is that it seems like all of the guys we have are outside guys... I'd like to see some quicker inside guys with some wiggle as well... You know the Brandon Powells of the world...

    But in terms of overall talent... No question... Excellent players...

    I didn’t think I had that hot of a take, he surprised me more than anything. Attempted to be measured and fair. I’m a total homer but I’ll never piss on someone and call it rain.

    Watching that interview when he committed he seemed to have a little pied piper in him. Some kids got it and some don’t. Something about that kid smacks of someone we’re gonna benefit from him being in o&b. I could be totally talkin outta my ass but

    With Lingard committing, I think that's much less likely, now... But even if Lingard isn't immediately eligible, I think we're fine, now, at RB... We should save some room for Parrish, but it's not like he's a must-have at this point, IMO...

    The challenge with Cox and Lingard is that they could both leave for the NFL after this season. There is a value to having a kid for 3 years. You need to make sure these transfers will help your team quickly, as you may not have them long

    We have Lingard for at least one season... the question is if that season is the 2020 season or the 2021 season... I also doubt that he leaves early if he's not at least our 1B or 2nd string RB... He really seems like a guy that needs more film to boost his draft stock... But I'm buying him... I think he can ball...

    If Lingard has the kind of year that leads to him going to the NFL next year, that mean two things. First, he is eligible. Second, he completely balls out as a RB at UF meaning he is amazing, our OL is great, or probably both. And this is a concern because....???? Seriously, what a first world problem.

    Most of these guys in the portal were not starting all their games for their prior teams. They would have to have a truly exceptional year to go pro 1 year after transferring.

    But the "sky was falling" according to some posters. We win 10+ games and a top 10 recruiting class and the fact that UGA was ahead of us means it is raining. Were we "lucky" to get a transfer or are the coaches just putting shit together? I have not seen anybody say DM or the staff is perfect but I have sure seen folks calling for our coaches to get fired and stating that we have "struck out" in recruiting. The negativity is either premature at best or misguided. It is perfectly fine to call for performance. It is silly to call for performance before the game is played.

    You have done plenty of bashing. So, when it doesn't go the way you expect, it is bad recruiting, but when it does it is luck?

    I have seen enough of your sophomoric posts to take your posts with a grain of salt. Bacon away.
