    The NCAA is not especially kind nor friendly to student-athletes with its rules and interpretations. This kid needs to transfer immediately ... and obviously we'd be very happy if that was to Florida ... and then apply for a family-related hardship waiver.

    If he stays at Clemson while applying for a waiver, it just reduces the strength of the argument that the family's medical condition is a compelling part of the decision.

    Until we START actually landing some of these supposed coups, I'm going to assume that the answer is NO... Working under the "it's never gonna happen" assumption is much easier on the psyche than being jilted time after time after time after time again...

    Tampa (plant) athlete and USC commit Juwan Burgess looks like he'll be visiting soon.

    The 6-foot, 185-pound prospect finally gave a commitment to Southern California back in August after it appeared the Gators, and Miami, were not ready to accept his pledge at the time.

    @Fitzsimmons22: #Gators already added the SEC East title and currently painting the Gator head for a big recruiting weekend.

    I don't know why people hate the east title thing. Filll that stadium up with every title we have. I'm still pissed they took down the first in the SEC in 84-85 stuff. Should also claim the 84 national title.

    Because the goal isn't to win the division. It feels like a participation trophy and makes it seem like the bar has been lowered; I don't consider winning the East a successful season personally.

    Im fine with saying "we won" the east but this whole "east championship" thing pizzes me off b/c its just some made up crap. There's only one championship associated with this conference, and it isn't yours unless you earn it in Atlanta.

    Our HC should make the news-videos expressing his opinion that supports the student-athlete as much
    as reasonable. Mac should make a splash as the coach that stays on the side of student-athletes; that
    would be Mac having an all-encompassing view of recruiting favorability.

    David Waters just said on twitter that the reason we haven't landed DT Tyrone Truesdell is because Mac & co are slow playing him and aren't ready to accept his commitment. They believe they can land some bigger fish. Smh...unbelievable! We are depleted at the position with 2 subpar DT'S coming back and they are slow playing kids? Wtf are these guys thinking? I mean why not take his commitment and then "IF" (and it's a big IF) we do land some better process him out? We need all the help we can get at DT right now and by them not taking his commitment is just another glaring example of this staff's incompetence!

    I hope this isn't true. This kid should be a priority, especially since we lost the earlier commits. Even if a higher ranked kid comes along later, figure it out, DAMMIT! Makes no sense!

    Surely they are not that dumb. That is just plain dumb. You take all you can get.
