    I understand that life happens and people have to do what's best for them but my hate for FSU is so ingrained that I could never flip allegiance. I legitimately have a visceral response to those colors and everything associated with them. I don't don't wish ill will on the kid but I couldn't care less about his football endeavors from here on out either.

    Something interesting I read in the article that Griffis said about Odell Haggans. Said been there 31 years.

    Anybody else read that? Odell been around but has he been there even 15?

    I'll say what I have in the past. Josh is a hard worker. My take is that he de-commited after getting the feeling the staff was not that high on him. I think he was correct. He did after all commit to the former staff, not this one. What I have heard is that not many high profile programs seemed that interested in him. Time will tell who is right.

    Um....my post was made over two months ago and was pure speculation. You should have just disagreed with it then, but I guess your mind reading skills are as good as mine. Or maybe you thought this was cooler?

    Coached there since 94 and played there 4 years, so pretty much 30 years

    Didn’t read it two months ago, I just read it today. More than likely I would have reacted the same. My apologies for not being more timely and missing it when you first posted.

    Unless he's the next Jadeveon Clowney I'm not worried about him wherever he goes. UF has Joseph for this recruiting cycle and we'll probably get another player at Griffis' position. UF got Diabate, Bogle and Summerall last year at buck so no worries for me at this time.

    He seemed to have a high motor on the field and was obviously a hard worker in the weight room. The only problem I have is that you can't flip to FSU if UF was truly your dream school. Something seems disingenuous about that. Wish him well personally, though.

    He's been there longer than 15. More than 20 years at least. He was there shoving our players in '98 when they had the near on-field brawl and Tony George was ejected, and then was throwing punches at our assistants in Gainesville the following year in '99 in another pre-game scuffle.

    Is that the year that Doug Johnson threw a football at Bowdens head in the melee?

    Kids a liar, UF couldn’t be your dream school and you then commit to free shoes university. Those two don’t fit sorry. Good luck with that joke of a program
