    Good question! I wish someone would educate our staff on this one because they don't seem to have a clue!

    Not getting blown out in every game against a ranked teams plays a pretty big part also.

    We beat LSU. Noles were crushed by Louisville. It's not just the results. Our staff just can't recruit.

    Absolutely. Why this coaching staff doesn't just blanket Florida and spend 90% of their time and budget chasing just Florida kids is beyond me. Howard Schnellenberger won a NC and started a mini dynasty recruiting just three Florida counties, for crying' out loud.

    The only positions we should really be looking outside of Florida is QB, PK and punter.

    Regardless we should be spending a huge majority of time in state for Recruiting. If you cannot control your home state what the heck makes you think you can do it out of state.

    OK but what exactly don't they do or what should they do to recruit better? Does anybody have a clue why these players make their decisions. Is it possible that academics at UF are much harder than say at FSU? They pay more or provide unethical or illegal benefits?

    There is probably some unethical stuff going on when it comes to some of those SEC West teams but it sounds like Mac and them aren't pounding the pavement at these Florida schools like they should be. How many times do they seem to wait until the final months and then try to really go after some Florida kid just to lose out to another school. They should have been on those Florida recruits earlier. Don't just assume some other team has most of them locked up.

    That academic stuff is BS for the most part imo. Its easy for a football player to get into UF or FSU. It mostly only comes into play when we are going after JUCOs.

    We never had an issue recruiting until Mac. The problem is him and his staff.

    So say Champ had no issues getting offensive linemen? I agree that this crew has had problems, but is it just their personalities? Seems like our current DC was thought to be a great recruiter especially in that talent rich area of south florida.

    So it is just lack of effort? Interesting observation.

    Chimp had no interest in recruiting offense.

    Chimp actually recruited well when he did take the time. He left mostly blue chippers on offense, just not many of them.
