    So which of the retorts do we need to go with. "X" recruiting service doesn't matter? It's quantity over quality? We paid them off? We wanted them anyway?

    Although the pissing and moaning about the number of recruits we're getting is quite ironic considering the pissing and moaning about our team's lack of depth the last year or two.

      The fact is this class is nothing like the Meyer years, for example. I'm not exactly complaining, we need the bodies, but it can't even sniff some of the other classes from other schools in terms of quality.

      I expect Mac's recruiting class to be of a much higher quality next year.

        We don't have 30 5 star players signed. This recruiting class is going to suck.

        For his first real recruiting class, it ain't bad at all.

        Mac's keeping the train moving. Big things are headed our way.

        Can't rebuild Rome in a day. The most glaring problem with our roster this year was depth. He's taking care of that.

          Except it takes 3 years to see how good a highly ranked class really was. Mac may not be killing it like Urbs was with Hernandez and company but I'd say he's holding his own. Besides, dogs sniff each others classes, not Gators.

          We're not going to have the #1 class, we all know that. But we are in on some big names and should finish inside the top 10, along with addressing immediate needs. I think the class will look much better in February. We'll be happy.

          I agree. To the captain's point, we do need the bodies but I do expect our future classes to have much better talent. We should still be able to close with some good talent in this class though.

          Nobody said anything even close to that. Typical wobble post. BTW, we have zero 5 stars in this class. Has never happened in a non-transition year.

            I've noticed a distinct lack of potential federal prison talent in this class........

              I'm not sure if I dislike the month between the end of the season until signing day, or the month at the beginning of the season from when fall practice starts up to kickoff.

                Yeah those 08,09, and of course the greatest class of all time,2010 brought us numerous titles....
                Mac's first class, last years, has already won more than those classes, and is the building block of a multiple championship foundation. Jefferson, Calloway, Scarlett, Cronkrite, Ivey and the rest of the offensive line guys will go places Meyer's greatest class(2010:shake:) never did IMO, and this class will only add to their hardware.

                Half the 2010 class was gone by 2011. I call it the chump effect. Coaching has something to do with it as well. Meyer wasn't coaching that 2009 and 2010 class.
