    Nah just tired of seeing the same old childish posts about 18 year old kids because they commit to a rival school.

    Theres an old saying , if you're not part of the solution you're part of the problem. Contribute more " less percieved "childish posts" to the board because 24 posts in 7 years isn't exactly contributing much substance at all. Just A little perspective.... this is a message board... hang around enough and you'll see much worse than what kentucky gator wrote.

    part of the solution would be calling said poster out for a childish statement. And me posting 24 times is irrelevant.

    You said he should post less. If we all started posting less, much like your 24 times over 7 years that would make this message board irrelevant. Our long time contributors and their differing opinions is what makes this board great. Not to mention it's a recruiting message board of a college team. Posting about 18-20 year olds and caring if they commit to your biggest rival kinda comes with the territory if your gonna follow high school recruiting.

    Part of the solution might be you leaving this board.

    Anyone that is committed to that sinking ship I really have to question their intelligence. How can you not see the obvious? What transpired on your visit to that school, after meeting the staff, made you think ...’WOW this program really has their sh!t together and is going places’ ...?

    They either have people in their inner circle who are not looking out for their best interest ...or just unable to process information and make sound decisions. It wouldn’t bother me to just pass on the whole lot.

    I would be completely happy with a less active community that only likes candy's post or asks reasonable questions rather than a bunch of 50 year old losers that judge 18 year olds that commit to another school without knowing their situations.

    I've also commented way more, when I downgraded my account it reset my comment counter. But you know, it's only logical to assume that because someone doesn't post all day every day, they don't bring any reasonable criticisms to posters on the board.

    No, I won't. The solution would be for you guys to grow up and stop complaining about 18 year old kids and accept that UF is one of 129 schools that give kids the opportunity to make the NFL and get an education.

    There you go again, generalizing what one poster said to all posters on this board.

    You need to get a grip. :rolleyes:

    To counter, we didn't have it together under Muschamp, and how many guys got to the NFL? And under Mac? I think outside of 2012 we had at least 5 get drafted per season - so perhaps playing time, quality position coaching, scheme, etc.

    Did I say to all posters? I said it to you, because you're defending said poster.

    Damn so now posters. Who are fed up with the shaver Manuel's and those alike of this world are now a bunch of 50 year old losers. The poster basically said if they chose FSU over the Gators to begin with he doesn't want them now just because their first choice of which girl to take to the dance turned out to be a dude instead. More or less he said he wants players who "want" to be gators. Not sure how that's childish as to me it's just sounds like 1 mans opinion and preference. I see why you usually stick to just reading threads. Sheesh!!!

    But why criticize fellow posters? Especially if they didn't offend you, only for you to follow it up with calling them "50 year old losers".

    The fact that you let Shavar Manuel affect your well being makes you a loser, yes. These kids are 18, with everything thrown at them, most of them haven’t had anything most of their life. It’s a tough decision. But then you sit behind some computer screen “hardy harr harr they don’t choose gator first, screw them. Terrible person, hate them”.

    You can still want to be a Gator but realize another school is a better option at a current time. Not everything is black and white.

    “I see why you usually stick to just reading threads” Sick burn. Maybe you should learn how to formulate quality analogies. Don’t compare taking a girl to a dance to 18 year old kids trying to make the best decision for their lives.

    Didn’t Felipe Franks own mother have to go private on social media because our fans were being absolutely nasty towards her son in a thread/community she was active in? Message boards hold the same weight. Players, families and friends of players and recruits read these.

    Fair. But If I had my choices between the 3, I would take Chump & Mac over Taggart any day... and it’s not even close. He’s created a new level of incompetence that I’ve never seen before.

    Who would be obvious upgrades for us? Tate, I suppose? Wideman is athletic, but is he obviously better than getting Portier, if we get him? They have a lot of nice athletes, but as far as upgrades, not much jumps out at you, and there are many that are obvious lesser talents than we have at various positions, especially OL and TE. We could look at a RB, but it is hard to determine what we are doing at RB, and I can understand why as some of the highly ranked RB do not look to me like can't miss recruits as similarly ranked RB were in previous classes.
