    Questions:
    Do you blame pumpers (on this site) for the state of the football program?
    Why all the hate toward anyone with a positive attitude?
    Were you abused as a child?
    How tall are you?

    @ZachAbolverdi: Huge news for #Gators. Today they secured the final official visit from 4-star DT Aubrey Solomon. UF led for him early in his recruitment.

    EVERYONE that is connected with the gator program knows we are having recruiting issues. The difference is not everybody projectile vomits over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over in every single thread posted. Puke puke puke puke....no substance.

    Find me one place where any of the "pumpers" have said this is acceptable? Just because we don't jump to conclusions on every piece of information and bash the staff based on guesses doesn't mean we are happy with the performance, we are just smart enough to recognize there is a lot we don't know.

    How interesting...He chose UF because we had been recruiting him one of the longest. Didn't go to Bama because they started too late... Seems I've heard that before, only reversed. Weird...

    Putting TRex on "ignore" was possibly the very best thing I did for myself in 2016. I highly recommend it.

    Now I see a few postings that don't make complete sense until I realize there was something I didn't see that provoked/inspired the response. But once I recognize that, which means that TRex was involved, I am never curious enough to want to dig deeper.

    It's like this:
    * you're walking down the sidewalk
    * you see a pile of dog poo right in the middle of the concrete, a few steps ahead
    * what kind of a crazy person decides on purpose that he/she is going to deliberately step in that???

    I imagine any punter who watches how bad we are on offense is excited about the prospect of coming here. Gonna be busy.

    By that logic, Alabama didn't win the West in 2012, '14 or '15, as they lost to a division foe who later lost twice(one on a miracle 4th and 25), allowing Saban and the Tide to back in.

    To be clear, I was on record in the lead up to the game in Knoxville that I didn't want to win the East by losing to the vols but seeing them stumble down the stretch due to their tougher West draw(someone had suggested it wasn't a season defining game). That said, us winning had nothing to do with that. If all we did was play East teams, we win with a better record. Now add in the respective West draws and we win by 2 games. If we'd lost at Lsu, and made Atl by virtue of their lost to VU, so be it. Instead, we went on the road and won a division clinching game against a tough opponent. Therefore, the East--terrible or not--was won by UF, and there's really no argument.

    As to your last comment about Chimp's wins over ut, there is almost zero chance that his '13 and '14 teams beat the much improved '15 or '16 vol teams. That was simply a matter of timing as they were gradually trending up, and were being driven into the ground. Jones is garbage, and the loss in September is a severe black eye for Mac. But these are still not the same teams WM faced while at UF.

    None of this is an endorsement of the staff, nor does it discount their issues on the recruiting trail. But completely dismissing the few legitimate positives is ridiculous.

    Nobody is offering up excuses... we are just saying in the situation of Pouncey... we don't know what happened. But keep with the same message over and over again with no content.

    We get it TRex... you are upset. You are mad that we have been losing and recruiting is not where it should be... Guess what... I'm frustrated by it also, but I am also an adult and able to take an objective view and recognize that I don't know everything that is going on, so I am not going to sling mud if I don't know where to throw it.

    You want to blame Mac for not pulling Del Rio against Arkansas... Yes... that one we all agree with.

    You want to blame Mac for not getting Locksley... No... not that it isn't his fault... just that we DON'T KNOW. So why blame him for something that may have been Stricklin's fault or maybe Locksley just decided to stay at Bama and coach 5 stars (easy) vs. rebuilding at Florida. That is the fact of where we are... Mac didn't drag us down to this level... he just hasn't gotten us back up as quickly as we would like.

    Just to be clear... You're suggesting that he is one of the "most overrated players"... "because of the hype people give him in this board."


    Who knew GatorChatter had the power to influence coaches, commentators, media, and fans alike? I mean, really, WHO KNEW???

    Well done Ox of building a propaganda empire. Soon the Dems will be investigating you for influencing the presidential election too.

    So why don't you tell us the reasons - that Pouncey is keeping to himself - as to why he crossed off the Gators (other than the boilerplate lazy, bad recruiters, too slow, too folksy and other unsubstantiated reasons).

    What's more ludicrous is you blaming the staff for correctly slow playing a 3* who we are only discussing because of his last name. Look, it's fine If you want to make negative inferences ad nauseum based upon circumstantial evidence for each bit of perceived bad "news," but your credibility in doing so goes off the deep end when you do things like blame the staff for this Pouncey deal or try to compare kids who have never played a down in college to Perine.

    Of course, the credibility thing matters only if your comments were worth a damn to begin with. I try to read them at face value for the most part, but that's just me....

    Yeah, it's a lot of horsesh!t. I don't doubt Bama was blowing up his phone and that Florida may have not done everything in their power to get him, but this kid chose Bama 'cause he and his parents wanted him to go to Bama. Otherwise he's a 6'5", 300 lb. little puss who doesn't have enough backbone to make his own decisions as to where he wants to spend the next 4 years of his life.

    Well, at least it looks like they're making an effort on the Plan B DT's. It's about F*CKING TIME! Seriously, WTF have they been waiting on. A bunch of arrogant, non-recruiting mother-f*ckers on this coaching staff!

    We should have had 4-6 4* DTs under serious consideration (w/ them actually considering us) along w/ a couple of higher end 3* DTs...then about 6-10 Plan B types. We have a support staff that could have sent letters and texts, while a coach could have made a text or call every couple of weeks. Losing the two DTs we had on the hook is inexcusable...but what's more inexcusable is not have a backup plan (or 3 or 4).

    Thanks for the updates....

    I cannot enjoy myself as a Gator fan dedicating myself to our Gators' gloom and doom.
    I will always look forward to seeing orange & blue uniforms running over opponents and
    fleet O&B WRs racing downfield. Bring on our 2017 season.

    A friend of mine who played D1 football and is a huge Bama fan put this out on FB yesterday. :lmao2:

    I wish these college football "fans" would take the time to understand these Recruiting "Star Ratings". If you play High School football, and are breathing, you are a 1 star. If your mom and dad sign you up, pay for, and get you to..ANY football camp, you are a 2 star if you dont fall out of your car and **** yourself when you get there. Keep in mind, you are really looked at as a way to supplement Asst Coaches income! After you have paid for and attended Camp, you will get bombed with emails by the time you return home, saying" The (insert a team) coaches saw you and were really impressed with your skills. Please sign up for (and pay for AGAIN) this next camp in the following month! From there, Dad takes this "mass mailed letter with their sons name on it" to work to brag, and mom takes it to the tennis luncheon for the same, boasting that little Johnny is "being recruited by (insert team). "We even have this letter to prove it". So, they sign Johnny up for the next camp, and so on, and so on, and so on. By the time they spend $5,000, zoom little Johnny all over the country, forgo family vacations because they dont have the extra money....Johnny will become, guess what, a 3 star!! More bragging, more boasting, more sugar plums dancing in their heads......then, signing day comes. "No coaches will return my call, I just dont understand!". "Where is my scholarship, I went to all the camps?" "Why won't the coach take my call?" "It says right here that Little Johnny is a 4 star!!!!". "All the recruting sites we have subscribed to (at $500 per site) even sent him a team lanyard with his name on it".......so the following Fall little Johnny isnt playing in front of 100,000 adoring fans, he's working at Quick Trip and going to a Community College.
