    Mama was not happy! She not only didn’t smile she looked pissed!
    I really thought he would go to A&M to be close to her….

    Get right with it, as with the recruiting we and CBN want, we're going to be on both sides of the 'look at me' kids more and more often going forward.

    Kelly comes in on short notice and pulls this kind of class. There's nothing hip, alluring, charming or genuine about him or their ridiculous social media campaign. Are we still talking about "great recruiters", relationships, next year blah blah blah?

    I'm not knocking the staff or their efforts in any way it's just obvious that these schools are doing something different and it has nothing to do with their head coaches...

    He is about to have the shock of his life this season. Bama, A&M, Ole Miss and UF every year is going to get old for him.

    Hope so. I'm just saying I don't buy for a second that Miles, Ogre or Kelly won over kids and family with relationships, charm etc. Must be nice to walk into a system of boosters and who knows what else that will pull whatever strings to make recruiting happen regardless of the coach.

    I just think Coach Napier is genuine and it will pay off dividends on the recruiting trail. Believe me, I get what you are saying about the way they (LSU) have gotten some great 5 star gems. I get it, money talks. Look at the way their basketball program is going.... Being investigated but still landing blue chips. Again, cash talks for the kids. Once we start winning again and Coach Napier is established here and has had time to bond with in state programs, it will be another great era of Gator Football.
    GO GATORS!!!!

    I'm totally impressed with Napier and staff. I never expected to get Perkins and was in the group that called him trolling when everyone was sold on his all star interview. I just wasn't expecting the freak show at lsu to pull him in. We're in great hands for sure. My gripes have nothing to do with Napier or staff.

    We NEVER had that guy. These kids are going to get more polished and slick at playing fanbases for clicks and followers due to NIL branding.

    More power to them. Its the fan bases faults for following like we do before they ever set foot on a field.

    Out of the three (Citizen, Mathews, and Perkins), this one hurts the most.
