    Ole Yeller Teeth could have stayed 20 years and he never would have out-recruited Clown Town or anyone else.

    When you get that Ole Yeller tramp stamp on you azz, there is no turning back.

    I think he is secretly (and really) just an Ole Piss fan, so this whole think has been hard on him.

    People in M'ssippi make fun of us firing great coaches like Ole Yeller, plus us hiring a Cowbell coach (with the obvious implications of Mssippi schools still being third tier) has been rough on him.

    I mean Dan Mullen, not known for being a great recruiter, has come in and in two months has a chance to sign a better class than Mac did in three years...

    Anyone still riding the Mac dick is obviously troubled....

    • Justin Watkins, 4-star WR: 9:15 a.m. ET (Florida commit)
    • Griffin McDowell, 3-star OG: 10 a.m. ET (Florida commit)
    • Nicholas Petit-Frere, 5-star OT: 10 a.m. ET hour on ESPNU (Alabama, Florida, Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State)
    • Andrew Chatfield, 4-star LB: 10 a.m. ET hour on ESPNU (Florida, Florida State, Miami)
    • Nesta Silvera, 4-star DT: 10 a.m. ET (Florida, Miami)
    • Malcolm Lamar, 4-star DE: 10 a.m. ET (Florida, Florida State)
    • Noah Boykin, 4-star CB: 11:30 a.m. ET (Florida, Notre Dame)
    • Jacob Copeland, 4-star WR: 2:00 p.m. ET hour on ESPN2 (Alabama, Florida, Florida State, Tennessee)
    • Caleb Johnson, 3-star DE: 2:30 p.m. ET (Auburn, Florida, Georgia)
    • Richard Gouraige, 4-star OT: 2:30 p.m. ET (Auburn, Florida, Clemson)
    • Malik Langham, 4-star DE: 3:30 p.m. ET (Alabama, Auburn, Florida)
    • Dorian Gerald, JUCO DE: N/A (Arkansas, Florida, Louisville, Texas A&M)

    You do realize that you aren't making any sense at all, don't you? Swonkey''s post was irrelevant, but not inane.

    So basically i might pay attention to only a handful of those. Tannor, Chatfield, Boykin, Copeland, and Garage

    I think we have a shot at 9 of those (w/ Boykin, Watkins, and Griffin almost 100% - the others are toss-ups).

    The ones I listed are the ones I think are really the only potential to flip or sign with us that is not guaranteed or that we have no shot at so it's why I am watching them...

    If we take 9, that leaves us with 1 if Goldkamp is accurate when he said today that we are getting RR's counter back...

    Think we get 8. Leaves us with a few spots if a transfer wants in over the summer

    That makes absolutely no sense as a measuring tool since it takes out the a variable that most think is just a little important...coaching.

    This is from crucial, so take w/ a grain of salt:

    Who’s trending?
    UP
    • Noah Boykin: The writing has been on the wall with Boykin since last month. He officially visited Florida on Jan. 19 and de-committed from Maryland the following week. Ohio State and Penn State reportedly tried to get him on campus late, but he did not make either trip.
    • Jacob Copeland: Copeland took his final official visit to Florida last weekend and received the red-carpet treatment from coaches and players. The combination of Alabama losing some key assistants in Copeland’s recruitment and Florida hiring a staff that he likes has put the Gators back in the driver’s seat.
    • Andrew Chatfield: Miami began gaining momentum with Chatfield in early November, but that has changed in recent weeks. He received an in-home visit from Mullen and then officially visited Florida on Jan. 26. He has been trending toward the Gators since that trip.
    DOWN
    • Malcolm Lamar: Lamar has seemingly been a lock to Florida State since Willie Taggart became the head coach. He took a trip to Florida and received an in-home visit from Mullen last Thursday, but the former Oregon commit tipped his hand by returning to FSU over the weekend.
    • Malik Langham: Alabama was still the top school for Langham after his official visit to Florida on Jan. 26. He checked out Auburn last weekend as well, but even the in-state Tigers won’t be able to turn the tide on Alabama’s lead.

    Looking like we may have lost Caleb Tannor to Nebraska based on the recent Crystal Ball trend.

    On the positive side, things are looking good with Chatfield though.

    How many of those kids committed while Mac was the coach? I hate Mac but let's be real here...Mullen is doing well by keeping those kids that were already committed and grabbing some new ones.

    Either of those would be a nice surprise pick up.

    Truly don't understand what you are saying. I believe that coaching is more important than recruiting. I don't even believe that recruiting is as important as most here believe. But as far as recruiting goes, regardless of national ranking, I refuse to consider it a success unless we beat FSU. Another way to put it, recruiting isn't particularly important, but beating fsu at anything is important. How often have we beaten FSU in recruiting in the last decade?

    Two problems with this statement...first being that recruiting does matter and if you look back in the last decade, no team has won a title that has finished outside the top 5 in recruiting...stars do matter.

    Secondly, beating FSU in recruiting doesn't mean jack if the class isn't a well rounded class with needs filled. FSU is likely to finish higher than us this year due to their absolutely loaded DB class. The rest of their class sucks compared to ours...so you're going to say our class wasn't a success because of that?

    You're name is ancient, doesn't mean you have to have archaic thinking....
