    I'm wondering ... how much of any recruiting depends mostly on the recruiter's "faith" in the worth of his HC's program - one he can pitch with full fledge honesty? What subconscious attitude seeps through that recruits become suspicious of? Our recruiting is failing, big-time.

      Recruiting is basically a sales job. The best salesman always make you feel like they truly believe in the product.

        This! 10x this. We weren't *****ing about Clemson and Bama in the 90s. Those programs are cyclical just like all the others. Saban won't coach there forever. Neither will Dabo. The last thing we need is more NCAA meddling.

        As for the NASCAR reference....how did the meddling by NASCAR turn out for the sport? Its circling the drain and gaining speed.

          Ok. Instead of continuing to say the same thing over and over, why don't you tell us what needs to be done by the NCAA and what problem they will be fixing?

          First thing they could do is eliminate the QA coaches. Limit every school to their coaching staff and a couple admins. That’s it.

            Spoken like a true bureaucrat. Those committed to winning and excellence will always find a way. Outlaw QA coaches, and the Bama's, OSU's and Clemson's of the world will just call them something else and keep dominating those that aren't as committed.

              Well, the playing field isn't level for UCF or USM or any other directional school. But it never would be.

              However, the only reason UF isn't competing is our AD.

                Pretty sure I’ve already said that about 3 times but the term “parody” might be over your head. In other words, they need to find a centralized rating platform (likely 247) and implement a team ratings cap...ya know, kinda how the NFL has a salary cap that doesn’t allow the league to turn into the MLB.

                Or you can keep *****ing and moaning for the next 10 years watching the same teams play in the championship blaming everyone and everything else!

                  The salary cap and the rating on a teams talent have two very different functions. The roster limits are more like a salary cap than what you are proposing.

                  stomp stomp whine whine whine... I WANT EVERY TEAM TO HAVE A ****TY AD WHO HASN'T PUT MONEY INTO FOOTBALL SINCE 1981!!!!!! stomp whine whine whine. TO EVEN THE PLAYING FIELD!!!!

                  jeesuz you are a fuchsing moron. Like jboss level. Normally, Im not into banning stupid people but I'd make an exception for you.

                  First, there isn't anything even slightly legal about forcing kids to go to a school they don't want to go to.

                  Second, the only thing wrong with Florida is we have pieces of shyt in the slumlord AD's office.

                  No, no one is going to give you talent to overcome our own laziness. Hell it isn't like we don't have as much money as the other teams. We just let the Asst ADs stuff it in their own pockets instead.

                      Just for clarification... did you mean "parity?" Or are you suggesting we need Mel Brooks to oversee this effort?

                        2bits efforts at justifying Mullinz are a parody.

                          Parity is for those that can’t get it done.

                                About what? Still waiting on you to actually explain what is unfair about how those teams are getting all the talent. Everyone is waiting on pins and needles for you to explain how the system is rigged to keep Mullen down while it elevates Bama, Clemson, OSU, LSU, aTm and UGA. You keep b!tching and moaning about how unfair it is that those teams keep getting all the talent but you don't address why those teams are getting all the talent.

                                So. Why are those teams getting all the talent? Wouldn't that be the first step in validating a problem exists and then the course of action to correct?

                                      Our community sprung up when the Gatorsports message board was shut down in the summer of 2014. We pride ourselves on offering Gator-biased, yet critical discussion among people of all different backgrounds. We are working every day to make sure our community is the best Gator message board you will find.
