    Not interested. Not b/c he is a 3 star and we are 3 star U., but b/c I can't pronounce his first name.

        Was he one of the recruits who was unrated before he committed to FSU?

            We may need to come up with a new category soon. Even "in shambles" doesn't do this space garbage-esk complete public disintegration justice.

                Yes, we have dreamed our entire lives about this kind of FSU humiliation. Savor it.

                I didn't expect Dabo to show huge balls like that by calling out the truth. Earned a ton of respect for him. He gave political correctness on this virus nonsense the middle finger.

                  While I enjoy watching the clowns suffer, this isn't a loss. He very likely was pushed out the door. The kid is in no way a P5 player. They saved a scholly. This was the letting go of a legacy commit. Still, the optics look bad because most won't know the background to this decommitment.

                    Saved a scholly for who? Who in the name of God would want to commit to FSU right now? I expect whatever little talent they have in the class right now to drop out and run away. They can't afford to dump ANYONE - a 3-star player is gold to them right now.

                      Oh, they are running for the hills. Rumors flying around that one of their top commits, Omarion Cooper, is gone. He hasn't officially decommitted, but it is only a matter of time. NorveLLLLL is doing in mere months what took TaggElwain almost two years. It is glorious.

                        They're planning to load up on transfers. They're playing the "we didn't want him anyway" card, and "he's not a P5 football player", "the last staff took his commitment". They're going to have a roster full of transfers, basically a Kansas State type of roster.

                          That, and we don’t sign linebackers. What a silly idea.

                                This was interesting. Josh Newberg said on a recent podcast that he got a text from a 2023 recruit fsu is looking at for the o-line. This is what the recruit said,

                                1. The defense is soft.

                                2. The wide receivers need to catch with their hands instead of their arms.

                                3. The o-line is undisciplined and poorly coached.

                                4. The defense needs to stop celebrating after making a tackle upon which the offense has just gained 10 plus yards. It is more proof of the teams lack of discipline.

                                Basically, the recruit just blasted NorveLLLLL. If this recruit notices these things, others will too.

                                  Cooper and Fuller are HS teammates. May just be coincidental, but the timing would suggest otherwise.

                                    Fuller is only playing D1 ball through connections to legit P5 players. We took Umstead Sanders in order to sign his brother. When that didn't work, we sent Umstead packing. He is now a backup at Jacksonville St.

                                    Not claiming Fuller is a legit prospect - his offer sheet consists of FSU and....FSU; and while it is quite possible he is being processed, it does seem like the timing of him not being part of their class and Cooper possibly de-committing could be connected. Unless there are some younger Fullers that are real prospects, I can't figure why they offered him at all. He's an undersized LB who is not particularly fast. Interestingly, when he committed, WiLLLLLLLie was still the coach.

                                    Sanders, btw, was a preferred walk on initially; I think he only got a scholly later when there were some still available. I still think that was a good attempt even though it didn't work. No real harm and an extra body for practice.
