    A few weeks back I did a thread on the State of the Canes and a State of the Noles also. They seemed to go over and stimulated conversation. I was thinking after NSD, doing one every few days on each SEC program. Do you have any other suggestions for what you would like to see to keep us engaged on the board after NSD?

    Start by your take on what we need for next year. Then your top 15-20 in the state of Florida.

    I'd like to know a supplemental re-rankings after all the transfers are done before spring and then right before the season starts... For instance we had the #14th best recruiting class according to 24/7 in 2018, but that class does NOT take into account Grimes, Jefferson, Krull and other others that transferred to the Gators' football team in 2018. What would our class be ranked after we got those said transfers?

    I think it would be good especially if your doing teams on the 2019-2020 schedule.

    I would start it back up with a State of the Gators, both your opinion how we did and what next year looks like. Then do a refresh on The State of the Noles/Canes to revisit how they ended up. Then do what Philly recommends and focus on the teams we play. I don't care much about every team in the SEC West, only who is up for this year.
    An idea for a different top pinned thread on Awesome Recruiting would be a Top Talent Tracker. Start by listing our top 1-2 prospects by position in Florida that we hope to get a visit with for 2020. Then throughout the off season anyone could self report more info about those Top Tier Talents we are all hoping for. These names may come and go but at least a list of our targets is always up for discussion. I kind of do that on my spreadsheet each February and it helps me get to know the names of the best players in Florida each summer. The more you see them, the faster you get to know them. It would also come in handy for Friday Night Lights, etc.

    maybe some insight on how recruiting is going for the two new position coaches to compare to the two that left...

    possibly, gimmicks that opposing teams are using to negatively recruit against us..

    A bi-monthly post called SwampSavages. Follow each major position group and how they are developing, falling into depth chart, training bits.

    I’d like to see a few more rambling posts devoted to outlandish conspiracy theories and/or salacious rumors about opposing coaches’ recruiting violations and/or sex scandals.

    I would like to see a "roster" improvement eval. With the new transfer rules this analysis will be more relevant than ever.

    candy, I really appreciate what you bring for us here on the free boards.... I say write up on whatever you're interested in exploring and willing to let us tag along on the insights. The last thing I want is for you to feel obligated to fulfill a bunch of requests from us on stuff you aren't all that interested in and then move on to the NFL after losing a game to Tennessee because of 9/11 and Darnell Dockett.

    That train of thought may have dredged up some abandonment issues... but you get what I mean ;)

    You think given the smoke around bama year in and year out that accusationa of recruiting violations are "outlandish?" Lol

    Believe it or not but to call accusations outlandish is pretty naive.

    I said my peace on this matter and will not respond so as not to hi jack the thread

    Agree with Jayhovah. In a nutshell, just tell us stuff we don't know when you can, please.
