    It looks like FSU might have another season similar to last year and there may be some recruits who are ripe for a flip. Who do you think UF will be after the most this season? D. Tate, J. Douglas, J. Mc Cluster, K. Greene, L. Toafili, M. Wideman, S. Dix or any others?

    What’s crazy is that I was deeply concerned about losing our recruits to them after the first half, when they dominated. The second half was so much more fun!!

    Do we really want to take McCluster from them?
    Seems like a perfect fit for him up there.

    If they were recruited by us and committed to FSU or if they weren’t recruited by us and chose them why would you want them?

    I think it would carry more weight to let them deal with the consequences of their poor decision rather than look like we are taking Taggarts scraps.

    I mean FSU? A legit team like Bama or OSU maybe but I’ll pass on clown town.

    I think there's room for foregiveness but staff has to properly vet which so far has not been a strength.

    TBH I see a couple DBs which we need but then only a couple of LBs but don't think staff needs more LBs. Okay, so the DBs.

    This is a stupid opinion. You should refrain from posting further. Good football players are good football players, I don't care who they committed to in the past, if they improve our roster, I'm all for it.

    Me too. Ridiculous athlete. Gotta be not just 1 of the top 5 big receivers out there but top 5-10 overall, he’s that good.

    Is legit 6’4 maybe 6’5 and right around 200. He’ll end up 6’5 and 210-215. Not worried about his 40. When you see his athletic ability in football and basketball
    You’ll understand. Not sure there is a more athletic receiver in high school.

    I don’t give a damn what you think about my opinion. So go back under your rock little boy.

    We shouldn’t be that concerned with who a player may have committed to in the past. They are young and make poor, uninformed decisions. I hate to admit it, but my uncles who went to FSU had me brainwashed as an impressionable young child of the early 90s. But seeing my first Gator game opened my eyes, and when it came time to pick where I was going there was only one choice. Some of us need a little time to figure that out.

    That’s true. I think every young man has deer in the headlights syndrome until they early 20’s.

    wasn't the message board tea saying Wideman may be a grades risk?

    Hopefully, some of them haven't cashed their checks yet. It will be hard to flip someone if they already spent the money. I'm just kidding. Mods please don't ban me.

    Nothing is black and white. I’d take terry and Akers in a heart beat if it was a retro thing and applied to their class. Don’t even think that would be up for debate. They’ve also got a safety or nickel corner I can’t recall which that looks like he’s a future pro. Maybe woodby I think. That’s just off the top of my head so I would imagine there’s more. My hate for that trashy place runs deep and true but not so much so that I’m willing cut off my own nose to “keep it real”. Just sayin

    I could be wrong but I don't know of any specific commit off hand the noles have that the staff values over one we have or one we have on the board. However, and we forget, recruiting is fluid. If UF strikes out at RB, would they go after Toafili? Maybe Tate, he is a tall corner and possibly Wideman who is very fast and Athletic.

    Maybe so but I wouldn't back off of him until after the fall to see if he improves.

    You shouldn't, but your opinion is borderline childish.
