    Kids gotta stay on that tit as long as they can. Gotta have love . It’s pathetic. But we are worse as fans worrying about it. Frick em all is what I say.

    Who knows. Maybe some are right and he’s trying to pave the way for better OV’s thinking they have a better shot with him open. We shall see.

    Everything will work out fine for us. Who knows, maybe Josh will come back at some point. If not, DM and Co. will get their guy.

    The Gators are rolling.

    No, I kinda didn’t. Read my post again.

    I said this was not good news but it wasn’t a huge need based on what we have at the position. But then again, you have a history of putting words in other people’s mouths.

    Right. Signing day is basically a year away. A lot WILL happen with the 7 that have committed to UF for the 2020 class from now until the ink runs dry so a player committing or decomitting especially before their senior year should be viewed with caution. I bet our class and big board from this day last year looked vastly different from how it looked late October last year.

    Chantz Williams and/or Zyke Walker will make fine replacements.

    I hope one our new position coaches didn't have anything to do with this...

    Possibly but didn't Pickering go through the whole process while staying committed the whole time? Then again I'll just sit back and trust the staff like this past year

    Griffis’ latest camp exploits might have led to Bama and UGA explaining to the young man and his family just how lucrative their scholarships can be and that there is a difference. Hope he sees the light and comes back to the good guys.

    Rumor has it that Josh hasn't gotten much attention from the UF coaching staff, and felt neglected at junior day. Mix that with other schools starting to give him a lot of attention, and he bailed.

    Tough for coaches to balance their time between uncommitted players, and committed players....

    That's how I see it, unless the IMG curse is upon us again. It's way to early to worry about this, and especially to be negative on the internet about the Kid.

    Griffis may or may not be back in this class, but I think he is doing what is right for him. He has a little bit of nice camp film against questionable talent, but Joseph's highlights are nicer. If I was in his position and watched film with Grantham of what is expected and saw the ridiculous talent we got last year for the Buck position, I would look around more even if I felt my spot was secure. You don't retire mom by sitting on the bench. He has to show what he has. He may never get that chance with UF. Also, he has to know whether he is a good fit for a 3-4 rather than a 4-3. I could be wrong, but I wouldn't place any blame on coaches or him getting a big head because of a good camp eval or on Bama or Georgia turning up the heat with cash.
