    Lol. Not true. I might not have posted it, but I would still feel the same way about the methodology. As I said before, that's just basic statistics.

    Edit: it's actually pretty interesting, generally speaking. No question our brand has taken a serious hit the last several years due to the coaching hires. I'm sure a larger and representative sample would reflect that, but I think Joe's points are well taken.

      Methodology does matter, but this is good grist for the offseason mill and I don’t think it should be taken that seriously. The actual votes of top recruits are reflected in the team rankings.

      I don’t question where the Gators sit in this poll. I would expect UF to be outside the hottest programs but still in the next tier of 10-15. I’m not surprised to see PSU rising. The Bama rating is a surprise.

        I really liked it when you called him an idiot.

          My personal opinion of the brand is that do not wish theoretical harm on the current AD, and his selection of HBC, every time I think of the current state of our football program. I'm at a wait and see approach level.

              You both clearly wanted to keep going, so if you do, take it there.

                Dude, you have no business being a mod. Sorry, I like you personally, BNA, but you are asleep at the wheel.

                    Alky has a month off. I've grown weary of his over-the-top personal attacks....they've been going on for years (and I've been in his line of fire plenty of times myself) and I've given him countless vacations. Next one is a permanent ban.

                      So all the offending posts were deleted? Serious?

                      While I agree a ban in due, that’s an Ox decision.

                        Mods don't have ban authority? That's a new one on me.

                        Permaban, I’d imagine Ox would want final say. He’s the one that keeps giving him second chances for some reason. Look, I’m not disagreeing with you, that was way out of line, but you can’t blame it on BNA.

                          Who said permaban? It's bull**** he should be allowed to pull in another poster who doesn't even post in the main forum with these kind of vicious attacks.

                          I would hope so. He just took a vulgar shot at you.

                          Blackfeet’s is a good guy, it can’t be easy to be a mod. Thankless job I would imagine.

                            Again, you can take it up with management if you’d like. I was made aware of an exchange, 10 seconds later I immediately posted “This ends now”, and I got rid of the exchange that didn’t belong in that thread (or any thread). If something was posted after my warning, then I’d take the next step, but this is ox’s board, ox’s rules, and he can choose to ban (or not) whoever he wants.
