    Do you understand the saying? I literally quoted your initial comment that wasn't talking about this at all. Unless those teams make up for 4 losses that you think we should be OK with, you moved the goalposts.

        I saw this on FB post about the number of recruits Clemson offers:


        - GA offered 248 recruits, 20 committed, that's a 8.1% success rate

        - Alabama's class was a record class for sure; they offered 218 recruits, 27 committed that's a 12.4% commit success rate

        - Ohio St offered only 167, 21 committed that's 12.6%

        - Tennessee offered an amazing 479 recruits. In which 21 enjoyed those McDonalds bags. That's a 4.4%.

        - Clemson - offered only 72 recruits, 19 committed - 26.4% commit success rate.

          It isnt a "success rate". Most of those offers are just Valentines cards.

          Trailerbammer has great success on almost every recruit they really want.

            You need to be talking to Fooley and Fooley Jr the Mundee Warrior bc until the get in the arms race, nothing else changes.

            Hiring pieces of **** for Cowbell who cant beat anyone but geographic schools and other cupcakes will never mean a championship.

              If true, the Clemson numbers are eye popping. Does this mean (again, if accurate) they don't take a shotgun approach and probably only offer the ones they really want. The others may be playing chess and keeping second and third tier recruiting teams distracted away from their real targets?

              Doesn't matter. Until UF invests (or reinvests) in the Football program we can only sit outside the drive thru movie walls and listen ... using our imaginations to speculate on what the movie is really about.

              F.ck the leghumpers.

                Looking at the clemson #s and then the latest UF target talked about in the 22' thread is interesting, but might rain on the scapegoat parade. The #3 TE in the country is from SC and has a clemson offer. Yet we lead and he says how he has a text from Brewster waiting for him every morning when he wakes up. So we can compete with clemson in their backyard when a guy we hired for his recruiting is on it. Does the admin stop knox from texting kids more than once a week? Do they not even give Hev a phone?

                  The playing field is level you twit. What we or other teams do about it is up to us.
                  You want to change the rules because you think it's not fair. It is fair. It just requires that you work.

                  I'm truly disgusted by people like you.

                    No one’s saying it couldn’t be better in multiple areas. But the focus and commitment at the top is not there and it shows on many levels. Just the fact that they don’t fire, or force Mullen to fire, guys that are underperforming says they’re perfectly ok with it.

                    By the way, I’d be shocked if Knox sends recruits a text every week. Semi-monthly at best. And I wouldn’t be terribly shocked to hear Hev had his phone taken away after accidentally sending an anime porn clip to someone by mistake.

                      Not arguing that. But I think there is a big difference between the admin "being ok with it" and 'not investing'. We invested enough to pay an average HC and [email protected] DC a ton. That's enough of an investment to take a shot at a coach with potential and almost any DC, along with a bunch of Brewsters.

                      Crootin is all about passion and want to. It's salesmanship and being all in. We don't have much of any of that and it starts with mullen.

                        This is interesting - partially due to covid and partially due to the transfer portal:

                        Per 247Sports, FBS college football teams signed more than 400 fewer recruits to scholarships in the Class of 2021 than they did in 2020 and 2019. In 2021, FBS teams signed 2,215. In 2020 they signed 2,622, and in 2019 they signed 2,671.

                            Let me break this down for ya. The sec writes a big ass check to for the same amount , to everybody. Alabama invest their paycheck heavily into their football program. The recruits wanna go there. We invest our paycheck in a baseball stadium and dipshyt football coaches. In return, recruits don't wanna come here. It's a very simple concept. concept.

                              So why do you and others continue to ***** and moan as if something is going to magically change? Again,us and 125ish other teams are left starring up at the same 5-6 teams every year!
