    Meanwhile, a significant number of the top kids from the UM 2021 10th ranked recruiting class have left the program via the portal.

    If you want to laugh, or are a stock market nerd, read the latest LIFW 10K (July 26). From a cursory scan:

    - For the years ended December 31, 2022, 2021 and 2020, Claims recovery service income included $10.6 million, $11.5 million, and $13.1 million, respectively
    - December 31, 2022, the Company had unrestricted cash and cash equivalents totaling $3.7 million.
    - 100 employees for supposed billion dollar opportunity?
    - The restated balance sheets and P/Ls starting on about page 88 show order of magnitude changes. Previous filings were admitted by LIFW to not be "reliable." That is code for wrong - in a signed federal filing...
    - Total revenue for 2022 was $23.4 million. Operating loss 2022 was $331 million. Net loss was $402 million

    The best part of this? The 10K also cites LifeWallet sports being developed:

    "LifeWallet Sports empowers student-athletes to maximize their Name, Image, and Likeness (“NIL”) rights by connecting them with brands and businesses. The platform assists athletes in deal negotiation and rule compliance and enables brands and businesses to identify talent, schedule events, monitor campaigns, and much more."

    Sounds like arranging deck chairs on the Titanic, but a better analogy may be the crew of the Titanic announcing fishing opportunities for passengers. How do officers in a public company justify spending resources on NIL in a company dedicated to medical claims recovery when there are red flags everywhere? Stunned to not see a shareholder class action.... yet.

    Sorry to divert from strictly recruiting but since Ruiz has been so active for UM (and against UF), thought the depth of LIFW issues worth touching upon.

    And I thought I had problems balancing the bank account.
    Is this a DOD Gov't project?

    UGA kid just flipped. UGA seeks commits and keeps recruiting higher rated kids at each position. Once they get those commits, they process our others to meet numbers. Love how Chauncey bought that coaches fake line about the 3 will be Mount Rushmore. Only so many touches in a game. Will not play enough to get developed

    The idea of UF being a consolation prize for discarded dwags makes my skin crawl.

    They either aren’t good enough or are a problem usually. Hope our guy Kimber works out but no most times.

    I watched scUM’s 3* QB commit for next year. He was playing against Buford and Dylan Riola. The kid looks like Kyle Trask.
