I think it is both lack of effort and lack of charisma.
This makes perfect sense. UF does have a lot to offer recruits. We are behind in the arms race so to speak but from things I've read......gotta be a huge part of the problem.
This times 100!
Well if that is actually true only total replacement will suffice, Time will tell but I really hope that is not the answer.
That's what everyone is hoping for. They know Mac won't get fired until after next season at the very earliest, but we can find a high level recruiter on defense, replace Nord, and replace Summers.
I think you add Southern Georgia to the mix and keep an eye open from Texas thru Virginia to cherry pick if you can. But yes, at minimum 90% of all offers should be in state. They should be building relationships with the coaches so that the coaches feel like they are part of the program. That way when a local coach sees a 8th or 9th grader that is good, they can tell the regional recruiter to keep an eye on the kid and take a look. You have to have these coaches on your side, and right now they seem to be with FSU, Bama, and OSU.
To add more fuel to the fire...
UF is only mentioned once in this article. Flagship university in talent-rich state and Bama/OSU/Clemson come pillage from out of state.
UF recruiting is the worst I can recall.
If we were destroying our opponents in games, it would not matter if the kids had to live in TeePee's - they would come here to play. Unfortunately, we are now working on seven years of a **** show offense and we have a low energy, lazy coaching staff who are not making connections with the elite Florida high school programs and elite recruits.
Actually he didn't. The problem is that he just didn't recruit any for 2 seasons. His biggest issue with recruiting was that he left huge positional gaps. His last 2 years he stocked up. His last year (Mac's 1st class) he had around 6 OL at one point. It was just too late at that point.
So, it's not that chump is incapable, he's just an idiot.
BTW, I will counter your argument. The offense was so horrible with chump, he probably missed on a few OL, but claimed he didn't want them anyway.
The year before he left he actually had a great offensive class. We were just so abysmal on offense that when it came down to it they didn't believe the hype and they abandoned the class. Basically two 5* players in Dalvin Cook and the receiver from South Florida whose name escapes me.
As far as the O-line you're right. He was an idiot. He thought he could just use JUCO lineman or transfers. He did not understand the Importance of a line to grow up and play together. This led to fractured play and continuity.
The only positions that I thought he actually recruited poorly was receiver.
As for QB, Driskel, Brissett, and Grier were all elite at their positions.
His recruiting classes were so off-balance though that it led to gaping holes in positions. Where a couple injuries would totally decimate the position. We saw that with linebacker (particularly with the Georgia Southern game where all linebackers that played were walk-ons) and we definitely saw it at OL.
We are seeing that trend continued under Mac. But to make matters worse, if he does not shore up this class, we will have two years of not enough recruits on either line of scrimmage.
Word on the street Saban and Meyer bring the Belk video every where they go...
Ermon Lane. Now a DB at FSU. I believe Wilson said he shut him down in HS and he'd shut him down in college.
That's worked out pretty well...except the other 10 guys on defense must have forgot about Dalvin Cook.....
He did. That was hilarious.
Well not getting any is a failure in recruiting, so he did have issues in recruiting. Not that it makes our current issues not important.
Looks like our Plan C LB won't take an official to UF because LSU is now in the mix. I'm Pretty sure Mac will find a way to blow our chances with this kid pretty quickly!
So I heard that CB Blades might flip now. Are we going to end up with a recruiting class at all this year? I read somewhere that Blades removed UF from his Twitter and is using a picture of Heath Ledger's joker as his avatar or whatever you call it. Cronkrite also used the Ledger joker on Twitter when he was upset about playing time. Who would even use Ledger's joker as an avatar? Lame! Also does that make McElwain, Batman?
Most likely, it means Mac should be projecting the bat-signal rescue beacon in the dark sky.
