    Why do you have a freshman QB if you are pulling a top class every year? It seems recruiting QBs is his biggest challenge.

    He beat out the veterans. Saban has no problem playing the best players. They had a true freshman OL, and he beat out a lot of upperclassmen. Sure, ideally the true freshman QB would redshirt but Hurts was legit. I agree that Saban cut off his nose booting Kiffin the week before the game. The Bama offense was out of sorts....but they also looked lethargic vs. Washington. Those two defenses (Washington and Clemson) showed that Bama's offense can be shut down, if anything. Hurts brings a whole new dynamic to Bama's offense, w/ his running ability.

    Yeah, but why doesn't he have upperclassman or a sophomore with more experience in the offense ready to go who can beat this kid out. His legs are valuable, but he did not look good throwing the ball.

    Why is Nord still employed as of today?

    Let's stop delaying the inevitable and start announcing the changes!

    Well, he simply beat out those other QBs (that's by Bennett transferred out mid-season). If we have a kid come in w/ this class and beats out Clark or Bryan at DT would you be upset? It's simple, he was more talented. Tebow gave Leak a push for the starting job in 2006. It happens.

    And Hurts looked really good passing the ball all year. He was SEC Offensive POY (not "Freshman of the Year", but PLAYER). He had two mediocre games against very good defenses. He looked great vs. our top 10 ranked defense - remember?

    Sometimes a freshman is better than the heir apparent. Hurts is a great player. He'll only get better. He won't be 19 until August!

    I can't disagree with anything else you said, but Hurts had little to do with the outcome of the Gator game (other than not throwing an INT, like Applebee's 3 picks). He was 11-20 for 138 yards, one TD, and a QB rating of 31.6. Not exactly 'looking great'. What did look great for them against us was their running game (Hurts did not hurt us running the ball either - 8 carries for 1 yard) and their defense. But the game was essentially over at half-time and Hurts didn't have to do much of anything in the second half, other than hand it off to the big RBs.

    Since his contract only ran through the 2016 season, we probably won't see an announcement that he hasn't been retained until 1) a replacement is added to the staff or 2) he finds another job.

    Looks like a typical day for McElwain's QBs! (add in a few picks, of course).

    Lol. He's been committed to them since 2015. He committed to them when he lived in Orlando. He's not coming here.

    We are in desperate need of an elite safety. He fits the mold.

    You can do it... as long as the basketball team is playing well... that will get you through April and to the Spring game which should spring board you through the summer!

    I have faith in you!

    Blake alderman said on the radio today that the Gaddy twins will flip to Florida if they're eligible. Would we still be able to land Slaton if we got the twins? Also Cam Spence is visiting this weekend, 3star ot Maryland commit.

    3* Nick Smith (6-3, 210, Orlando, FL. Dr. Phillips
    In home visit the 12th.
    http://www.gatorcountry.com/feature...a-visit-from-smith-florida-gators-recruiting/
    Smith watched Florida play three young guys this year and Shannon has explained that more young guys are needed at linebacker for the Gators.“He says that as long as I come in and work then I can have an immediate impact on the field next year,” he said of what Shannon has told him. “He said that he isn’t afraid of playing a freshman and that he knows that I can play. He wants me to start off as an outside linebacker but from my film he knows that I can play both.”

    I don't think truesdale would sign if we had 4 other tackles already.

    UF will host 3-star cornerback Eric Stokes from Covington, Ga. He is being recruited by Florida secondary coach Torrian Gray and attended Friday Night Lights on July 23.

    Stokes is also scheduled to visit Georgia (Jan. 20) and Ole Miss (Jan. 27) this month. The Gators are looking to land at least three more defensive backs in their class.

    GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Defensive tackle is one of Florida’s biggest needs in the Class of 2017, and a new target has emerged for the Gators.

    Tedarrell “T.J.” Slaton, a 4-star recruit from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., is ranked the nation’s No. 3 offensive guard and No. 65 overall prospect in the 247Sports Composite.

    But the UF coaching staff is pursuing the U.S. Army All-American as a defensive tackle, and that’s his preferred position.

    “Florida is recruiting me for defense,” Slaton told SEC Country. “That’s kind of what I want to play in college, and that’s why Florida is my leader.”

    Slaton’s primary recruiter is newly hired defensive coordinator Randy Shannon. The 6-foot-5, 350-pound prospect met with Shannon last month during the contact period.

    “He’s a good dude,” Slaton said of Shannon. “I had an in-home visit and we talked about a lot of academic stuff. He’s really big on the classroom, and so am I. My mom wants me to do all four years.

    “But his message to me is come in and work. Just do what I need to do and I’ll have an opportunity to get on the field.”

    Slaton attends American Heritage High School with a pair of UF commits. Both of them have been recruiting him to the Gators since they pledged last summer.

    “I got two guys already going there, Marco Wilson and James Houston,” Slaton said. “They’ve talked to me the whole season about joining them. So I’m comfortable with Florida.”

    UF is scheduled to host Slaton on official visit Jan. 20. He’s also considering Baylor, Georgia, Kentucky and Ole Miss for potential visits this month.

    Silly.

    Saban's defense actually requires three "DTs" on the field at the same time. If we signed 4 or 5, I pretty much guarantee that all will play next year if they are ready. No DT minds being called a DE.

    Plus two have issues with grades. Even if they pledge there is some doubt they ever make it here.

    Our weakness up the middle has been in large part with trying to play Saban D with undersized guys.

    I'm not saying we shouldn't take 5. I'm saying it's not likely we can get 5. If we can get 4 and Zach Carter, I'd feel good about it. According to tos Carter is 270 now.
