    Kind of them to move Myles Graham down to 114...might as well give him the Gator bump to a one star at this point.

    But as they pass through the portal, the force field drops their rating, sometimes sucking away a whole star. Like a black hole. And if they pass through in the other direction, the force field adds a star.

    Not too hard to figure out really

    To critical thinkers like you and I... it's child's play. But perception of prestige is important to a young 17 and 18 year olds. Higher rankings is prestige in the minds of these young kids... matters to them.

    I find the Fansville Dr Pepper commercials dumb for the most part, but their ‘portal’ commercial this season was good. As an aside, it would be funny if they brought back the Larry Culpepper character as mayor or something.

    They’re obviously brain damaged, have you heard their music.

    I have oft been a member of the Gator Conspiracy movement where our players' rankings seem to slide every time they are updated.

    But I admit there is an alternative viewpoint which I will mention here.

    Good scouting stays ahead of the curve and picks up gems initially undervalued by the math nerds. The army may be getting this one right.

    It’s a no brainer to take the top qb in the nation but I’ve always thought that the bottom of a class is where the great classes are made. That’s takes infinitely more work than just taking the obvious.

    Is that trickle-up football logic? Lol... :D;)

    I like that even the bottom feeders are good, but it's really to top few players that make the difference between a good team and a great team.

    Are you talking about Grimsley or someone else? I don’t see where his ranking changed. On 247, he was a 91 as a hs prospect and a 91 as a transfer. What site lowered him?

    My post was more about the nonsense being repeated about how bama refused to release him from him his loi. Like they were making some kind stand. That isn’t what happened.

    with our record it is amazing we are in the in the top 100 but top 10, wow. Funny when we were falling some people were claiming the stars/numbers meant nothing and now since we are in the top 10, these same people are crowing.

    Take a look at Tebow’s class, and tell me what you find. The top of the classes usually good anyway

    I love our transfer portal class. A few weeks ago i said we’d have 15-16 with a bunch being starters (think I said 6/7). Great job by Billy.
    Right now with Warner and Taylor I count 13. But even taking them away we have 11 and I see at least 3-5 more guys being added in the spring as we will have attrition. Namely one more OL and a WR.
    As far as 6-7 being starters I think we are there with:
    Slackman
    BCD
    Pup
    Turner
    Douglas
    Dike
    That’s 6 and we could see these guys as starters:
    Manuel
    Bridges

    Great haul when over half your portal pickups will see starter time and maybe more with Bridges and Manuel. Dont sleep on Dike. Not Ricky but 35-40 balls possible and can stretch defenses taking heat away from #3 especially running jet sweeps. Hes got the wheels on deep verticals but I’m hoping we see him with 20-25 touches on Jet sweeps

    And, 8 of the 15 classes ranked ahead of us signed more players. Once Billy hits the 14-15 mark this is a top 8 portal class. This is very very important today’s world to have balance with a good HS recruiting class and good portal class as the portal will bring more immediate success. This in turn is going to translate to a better high school recruiting class because kids want to play for winners.
