    He will be a RSoph and Vandagriff wil be a True Sophmore or RF.

    He won’t start that year unless he beats out Vandagriff who is a realistic 96-97 rank. Just long odds for him. He would have been better going to a lesser SEC /ACC team. Im glad he’s not here tbh.

    I heard that it was a forgone conclusion shorter was goin to be granted it. As far as Daniels goes , bring him on. I’m not quite to the point yet with ga that I wish for bad things or crappy players so we can beat them. We’re only a few years removed from a 2 and a half decade ass whippin with them so...

    It was an annoying series of events where Beck seemed to be heavily trending to UF, then he got a Georgia offer, visited, immediately committed and gave an interview afterward where he made very clear that he was waiting for Georgia to offer the whole time and basically considered UF his safety school. So you had a situation where a guy who seemed like a "lock" was snatched away by our biggest rival over the course of a weekend and made some pretty humiliating comments in the aftermath of it. And if I'm remembering correctly that was during the period where Richardson had de-committed, so we didn't have a quarterback in the class at that point.

    Now, life taking the amusing turns it sometimes does, Richardson came back into the fold and Beck proceeded to post a pretty terrible senior season, so it certainly looks like we ended up on the right side of that particular exchange.

    Thanks for refreshing my memory. I do remember some of that transpiring now. But, it seems like that was all about how he played us to get an offer from Georgia, kind of coming off disrespectful to Gator Nation. Now, there seems to be a second component that it is getting knocked around that he isn't turning out to be the greatest catch anyway. In the end, AR coming back into the fold will probably be the better outcome for Mullen with his system, in my opinion. We were never going to get Beck and AR, so, if we could have Beck without AR or AR without Beck, the good choice was likely AR.

    We need to hire someone on the inside of the NCAA into the athletic department. Our good ole boy network doesn’t work. And the hire has to be aggressive. Obviously, ours isn’t working.

    As for recruiting, we need to pay as much as Alabama Georgia do on Pell grants. As for additional help that these two are providing are through businesses, agents and handlers at IMG and the like. A concerted effort to circumvent the stated rules. Guess what, it is working. Learned at Tuscaloosa. Don’t forget moving families and providing jobs/ transportation for family members.
    Duke and North Carolina are following the process of using agents and handlers to get top players, then deny when caught, relying on academic and coach reputations to help buffer the denial.

    Our waiting for the Supreme Court of college football, “NCAA” to make a ruling, stems from when agents got us into trouble. Our AD at the time and every time since then was once bitten, twice shy. Zero aggressiveness. We are above pushing back when situations dictate it. Players are involved, we should at least give them the benefit of going to bat for them, instead of being old school, letting the Supreme Court “NCAA” decide, without doing all we can to force timely and just decisions.

    I hear your frustrations!

    Because of the loss of Jones, we needed a second QB in 2020 (preferably) or 2021. I think we have to look at Kitna as the alternative to Beck, and I expect Kitna to be impressive. I always like to see as many of our players to be a child of an NFL player as possible. Not to take anything away from Del Rio. He looks to be the real deal. We are looking good over the next 5-6 years.

    Beck will probably at least stick around until the first season's depth chart shakes out. Get behind Daniels and then he'll probably go, since I'm assuming Daniels will be a RFreshman or Sophomore in 2020. I would hope a competitor wouldn't just up and transfer before the competition even started. Who would want a player like that?

    Funny, I thought you were talking about the other Del Rio as the son of an NFL guy at first...

    Haha. That Del Rio was a really good...social media person. Seriously though, he had a good QB brain, but had none of the physical tools of our current QB and committed QB.

    I thought he read defenses very well, but, was way too fragile to stay on the field and didn't have the strongest of arms. Not a fan of his little broadcast gig; pretty cocky dude for his associated moderate level skill set.

    Definitely the good choice for Mullen. But if we were never going to get both, why did we risk AR, the guy most feel is the perfect Mullen QB?

    It seems that they wanted two QBs in the class to restore the depth because the youngest Jones flaked out on us.
