    I don't think that is why people dislike him.

    I don’t actually wish bad on the guy. I don’t want his feet to get cut off or anything like that but I wish him no success.

    Plenty of those successful athletes and musicians are asshats. You just give them passes because you’re partial to them. It’s okay, we all have our own biases.

    Alright, alright I’ll cut you some slack on that one. I’m also a fan of Derrick Brooks as well so I do try to judge the character of a man even if they made one horrible life choice.

    Ok since nobody is paying attention and would call me out on it I’ll admit to liking Deion when he was a two way for Falcons and Braves. Also liked Warren Sapp. Now let me explain. This was when we sucked something awful and I was in high school so you had to also root for who else might beat the Noles. Wide right baby. LA politics.

    I think coaches that want to turn around their program quickly must now use the portal aggressively. FSU and Colorado quick success supports this approach. Many of the top programs have used this approach ti recruit portal QBs. The old school HS recruiting focus is a long term approach. Can an alumni base support a losing record for 3 years using HS recruiting approach? Can you hold onto the HS kids or will they depart in portal for money in the future? From a chicken and egg perspective, kids need to see on field success and winning for HS kids to have interest as well. Having alumni throw out big checks does not hurt either. KJ allegedly getting $70,000 car and bi-weekly checks deposited into bank every two weeks before committing to FSU can’t hurt.

    Not sure I would call the FSU turn aound "fast". And it should be noted almost half our starters are portal players

    That would be 1/3 of the starters. I only know of 7 who start.

    Cool, so kids choose a school because Lil Wayne showed up. Great reasoning. Stuff like this is how Kanye West got 60k votes for president.

    Hilarious! Also, it's nice to see folks who didn't find SNL funny the past few years when they made fun of certain people suddenly find it funny again now that they're making fun of Coach Prime LOL
