    did I miss this? Was this expected?

    How about his teammate, will this play a major role in his commitment?

    It is certainly old news as this point that Mullen’s recruiting is a major liability, and that Hevesy cannot recruit top OL talent - is that what you mean?

    A little of both. Him choosing miamuh was expected for some time. Williams has made it plain for sometime that they were no longer a package deal and most feel they will go to different schools.

    geez, I am starting to wonder if some of you enjoy it when a kid chooses another school. Every school will target about 100 kids. Some will do better than others for many reasons. So do you realize that UF was not the only school that Rivers didn't choose. I guess they screwed up on him too. Go look at his offer list and tell me those schools can't recruit.

    You would think our 2020 class was ranked in the 40s how some people are reacting. We're ranked #6 with a loooong way to go.

    No, not at all. I mean I do say we can’t keep missing but I love Mullen and fully believe IF we can keep him for the next 10 years or more we will remember these times as great times!!

    A couple of things:
    Oak leaf ( School where Rivers plays) has for whatever reason been like a little pipeline to Miami.

    Rivers is very very good but I personally feel Braun is a bigger get/need. Yes, they play different positions and OT is a very very important position but I think Guard, if you have dominant guards is very important in our grand scheme.

    I also look at both players and think Braun has the chance to have a bigger impact in college.

    If his teammate from Oakleaf also goes to Miami I will be disappointed but not thoroughly upset.

    Dan Mullen will win and I’m very happy he’s our coach. I believe he and Hevesy have done and will do special things offensively.

    I’d be more worried if we lost a DLineman to Miami. We get Jalen Lee committed to go along with Dexter and we would have a nice DL building.

    I quit wondering Candy. Some are trolls and some enjoy to rub bad news in our noses.

    Just some info, Oakleaf is the newest school in our county. They march to a different beat than other schools in our county. Very good program and having former players at Miami has helped their cause. Saying that I think we pull Williams in the end.Beating the Canes is paramount!

    Agreed on Williams as far as big pull.

    As far as trolling not sure who referring to. Maybe Moscow was kidding around?

    I think they picked up a top RB in Chaney as well. 7 ESPN 300 recruits and 4-5 in top 150

    Some love it. No question. It's wild to see the traffic changes when something negative happens. Like the traffic after the Missouri loss vs. say the Michigan win.

    That said, it's a skrillion times better here than Alligator Alley. There are like 5 pisspots that wreck every thread there.

    This is true. That said, I give credit where it is due and Diaz is doing well in selling need right now.
