From our board. I was fairly correct...
"Luke Stampini said...
The interest in UF picked up greatly shortly after the FSU win for Collins. The communication became much better between the two parties. Now, I'm not sure if that meant Alex called out of the blue or that meant he actually answered their calls (which he used to not do) or when they sent him a message on Twitter he would respond, etc.
Priest Willis and Ty Isaac were two prospects that called UF out of the blue after that win."
Is that day coming...because having to deal with that nonsense is the reason I spend less time here and am considering canceling my subscrition (1/13) after my CCD was banged for a full year's worth without any warning.
If I want to banter back and forth with Gators, I'd go to the national board.
EARN YOUR SPEAR! AT WORK, IN SCHOOL, IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD! SHOW OUR RIVALS WHAT BEING A SEMINOLE IS ALL ABOUT. EARN IT! EVERY-SINGLE-DAY!
If we don't get him we will go to um
If Gator fans believe that BS about Collins calling because of the win then UF isn't the great academic University You claim it to be. Collins is a bright, thoughtful kid. Only Posters on this board and your board are dumb enough to think many kids will make a decision on one game. Collins surely isn't one of them. It may be that UF has had a fantastic running game all season that interests him and Gillessee? is an upperclassmen. If not then It's clearly Eddie Gran related.

So 247 staff is lying to us? Guess we should all cancel our subscriptions...
Good idea. You start.

I love how your name rhymes with BUTTHURT. Very fitting.....
I like how you are fixated on forcible anal sodomy. Very fitting.
Enough with the immaturity.

I agree. The civil gators are very few and far between and vastly outweighed by the remainder. If I want banter with idiots, I'll go looking for it.
I tell ya, the crocs win a game they had been practicing 3 weeks for thanks to some handy SEC scheduling and these F@#2ers are everywhere, glad I pay 10$ a month to read their gibberish.
He didn't "make a decision" on one game...
He saw our power run game be VERY effective against your "#1 Defense" so he decided to give us a call, or answer our calls, since he had not visited and set up an OV.
What is so hard to believe about that?
You guys did the same to us on our site the last 2 years after some convenient ACC scheduling. It's a 2-way street. Most of us will treat you the same way you treat us. Be cool and objective and that will be the response back. Be a jerk and we act the same way. Most the times I post here is in defense of my team or to correct some untrue tales.
That can't be serious.... You all treat FSU fans like trash on your site.

F$U had the ENTIRE season to prepare for UF with that piece of shyt ACC schedule they have.
We are sort of saying the same thing except for the fact I think it is a lot more Eddie Gran Related. As you kinda admitted it wasn't one game. And yes I know we have the greatest defense since the history of mankind but UF has run well against LSU and others all season who have a pretty good defense. BTW our D wasn't all that great against Miami and Clemson so I doubt any player with a brain thinks it's some phenomenal feat to run against us that he needs to switch schools the next week
I know it will make you feel better and we can agree to disagree but I feel his leadership changed only after Eddie gran left and he admitted he was devastated, so he did the smart thing and looked around.
I personally feel FSU is a 100x better school environment for many kids. What I don't understand is FSU has 2 RBs they like in Freeman and Wilder,we theoretically have a highly ranked Pender in school, we have Green and Yearby committed and have a shot at Sony Michel nexy year. Also our Oline is average. On the other hand UF has a tremendous Oline, not a whole lot of talent at RB so a great opportunity, plays in the mighty SEC. From a pure Football standpoint it's a miracle the kid wasn't very interested in UF earlier. Either he really disliked you guys, or your coaches fouled up royally or he thought playing for Eddie and FSU is a great place to be.
The thing about Collins is that he doesn't work out, so just imagine when he starts lifting and gets on a college plan where they work him hard. He is playing on natural talent.
If he remembers how Uf treated him last year when he walked in and introduced himself to the coaches and they had no idea who he was, he wont be going there
I think FSU and arkansas will be the top 2 in contention
I doubt that's the reason why. I think it has more to do with Gran leaving, whom he had the best relationship with, as well as the depth chart of both schools. We have freeman, wilder, pender, and green committed. You guys are depleted at the RB position and can guarentee him immediate playing time. We can only guarantee him that the best players.
We don't like you. We should have a place where we can say anything we want about you with it being unopposed. Just like you should have the same. Other "networks" have team sites for that purpose. I have a sub to a rival gator site so I can read it, but I don't post anything, I respect their right to sling untrue garbage to make themselves feel better. If I try to correct them I would get banned, at least I can laugh about it.
Some of the better team sites even have multiple boards so all the idiots can spit at each other in a specific place and others can steer clear of them, great. But on the pay, exclusive boards, moderators kick moles out keeping the board free of that nonsense. The bantering goes on on public/national boards.
I don't enjoy it and I certainly don't enjoy you jerks. I would like to come to Unconquered and not have to see you idiots. Something about 247 I find VERY lacking.
I know it makes FSU seem like they were in a position of strength when you say that its because Gran left.
No doubt that helps our case but the fact is that the kid began calling us right after he watched us run for 200+ on you guys. Not when Gran left.
All this probably doesnt even matter imo. We are arguing over 2nd as the kid want to go to UM as long as sanctions dont kill them
How will we regret that?
Regret is having the choice and choosing not to do something.
Hate to nitpick, but it isn't in our control. Had we NOT made an effort, we might have regretted that.
Gran leaving is a HUGE reason Collins began looking elsewhere.. You can harp on the game but that isn't why he called or answered the UF calls..
I can believe that.
Pruitt came in and solidified the defensive recruits.
I'm sure Jimbo has someone in mind that will come in and hopefully do the same.
NSD is more than a month away.
Nothing is ever done.
According to Stampini, who's job is to talk to these kids firsthand, that game played a large role and opened up the talks w/ UF immediately after. Gran left only 2 weeks ago. Not saying Gran's departure was not a huge factor, but Collins was open to us and talking while Gran was still employed by FSU.
exactly, some just freak out over anything...
I am the type of wait and see...
