    Part of reasons why Tom Herman was fired, couldn’t seal off Texas.

    As last ng as Saban is coaching, we will be playing second fiddle at best. Portal has helped but Bama needs no portal. It's hard for me to make accusations of cheating because he has been doing it so long that I feel someone would spill the beans. Reguardless he is so good I don't follow recruiting near as much. It just depresses me to just miss out. UG is getting plenty also.

    And it’s beyond unlikely that his final decision is impacted in any way by whether or not Mullen is on vacation on NSD. Ridiculous to even make an issue out of it

    All you need to know. UF may expect nothing to change on the field given numbers like that,............. in our own state, get our nuts kicked in.

    Lacrosse anyone?

    You don't have to cheat when you win 7 national championships in what, 12 years? That's a pretty good selling point to an 18 year old who can't wait to tell his girlfriend, as well as the other girl he really wants to see, that the recent 7 time NC wants him to help make it 8.

    I have no doubt that his decision had nothing to do with Mullen’s schedule.

    And the cars, huge wads of cash on demand, apartments/houses/jobs/scholarships for girlfriends dont hurt either.

    Or people like Lebron James and Patrick Mahomes live-tweeting their games and talking about players by name. In this day and age, that kind of exposure alone is priceless to them.

    It sucks but these guys have contracts that guarantee their money regardless. You don't Mullen and his staff? Fire them and pay up. That's the same for every other staff. I thought the effort or results at Miss St were mediocre and I think relatively speaking the results at UF are the same.

    I am certain there is some cheating at Alabama, just like there might be at every other school. But TBH, if you were a preeminent 5 star WR, RB, OT, where would you likely play? It's not that those from Florida don't love our state, it's that they have been recruited by Bama's stable staff for several years and everything they are told during the process probably appears to be true. Saban's been a master at filling coaching holes even when he creates them. He's way ahead of most other HCs all the time. It's insane. If I were committed to Bama and my position coach left, I would believe Saban if he told me not to worry and my new position coach would be as good or better for me.

    How often does Saban drop the ball or fade during the season to finish with four losses? So what if LSU and UF are telling a recruit "with you here everything will change"? If you're telling that to a WR or RB, for example, unless they are fools, they know that their position is the least of UF's issues at the moment. Anyway...

    Alex Leatherwood and Tim Smith took the money?
