    Pretty weirded out by the fact he said he shut down his recruitment then scheduled the trip to UGA. Then on the same day the #2 DT decommitted.

    They normally hold checks over a grand or so for a few days at the bank. Such a pain in the ass

    Trying to take a **** on UF recruiting after a very successful recruiting weekend is classic trolling. You are not discussing. You are accusing.

    Saying over and over again that it was very successful when asked how it was successful (in the absence of any commitment) I suppose is telling in itself. Curious what, or whom, I’m accusing.

    In any event, glad to see that people think good things will come, even if I don’t follow exactly what those are. Fingers crossed.

    Remember man, this is these kids FIRST TIME visiting schools on an official or unofficial visits ever. These kids are going to soak it up with each visit. This cycle and last year recruiting cycle is something that’ll hopefully never happen again as far as limited or no visits. Idk about you, but I wasn’t expecting anyone to be committed after taking their FIRST OV this past weekend because, i mean, look around, there hasn’t been any big names that committed elsewhere who just took a visit to other big time programs. What we did was get ourselves out ahead with the prospects that we def needed to; Booker, Thomas, CJ, Horton, and a few others while also reaffirming our current pledges that UF is the school for them

    in my opinion, just an opinion no insider heat lol, I’d recommend just seeing how we are by the end of next month as far as who’s on board. Let the month of June play out with all the official visiting going on and then let the month of July go and sort itself out, then we should have a clearer picture by August.

    I get your train of thought though and it’s not wrong or anything because i mean, hearing what you hear after visits are always going to be “positive” from kids and you’ll never hear “it was an ok visit, thought it would be better” or something to that affect that’s why I’m not getting caught up in quotes from recruits and looking at it how you’re approaching it; less blowing smoke and more commitments. Positive feedback is what we always hear about kids when they talk with staffs and then they end up committing and signing elsewhere

    Frankly, I was trying to ask a neutral question (which you answered neutrally): how was it a great weekend for us? If I’ve been too skeptical of our recruiting for that to be taken as a neutral question, then that is fine. Appreciate the input.

    Should be an interesting few weeks/months.

    We are getting some of the best recruits in the country say we lead their recruitment. That's not just a token golf clap. Do you remember during Mac's era top kids coming and leaving early because they were bored?

    yea that was during Mac’s 2016 cycle I believe (his 2nd class aka bump class) that happened. To his “credit”, he did make staff changes to try to show more of a commitment to the recruiting side but overall, him and UF just was never gonna work regardless of it that credit card 9 situation didn’t happen to start the 2017 season. He was never a good fit here from jump

    I wasn't there but I believe reports of it that it happened. Not that Mullen is reaching his ceiling by improving over Mac, but it's a start.

    He was a clown. I wish that was really him jumping that shark, probably the only humping he’s done in quite a while.
