about the fact that we are no longer even in his top 5 and haven't really spoken to him since Gran left. Now, while I know we haven't exactly had a full staff and had time, that is still quite shocking to me. I hope our coaches haven't just given up on that race b/c right now Fournette is a long shot at best and Pettway is favoring AU and Bama without even having offers from them. Sure Yearby is a great back but there are no guarantees here and I am wondering what the RB board is really looking like right now as this just became a HUGE position of need for 2014. We don't want just fillers this time either, we need GAMEBREAKERS and a top shelf one at that to put this team over the edge. We definitely need to get back in the game with Sony as I thought we were pretty close to that top spot back during the season with Gran recruiting him.

After the hell that was the 2013 class and the fact that recruiting is just going to get even worse, I can't think of why we should be talking about it. There is so much time, who cares what these kids say right now.
"Some people think football is a matter of life and death, I assure you, it is much more serious than that."
I agree with this. Let Jimbo take the coaching equivalent of a load off (which ain't much) get his ducks in a row, make the last hire and then go hard after the 2014 class. We are not going to get Yearby AND Michel anyway, IMO. Not saying don't recruit him. We have to recruit every elite Florida talent. But there's no sense in going nuts over this kid right now.
Also how many times do we see recruits commit early only to flip late in the process? Way too early to care. As long as we're in good position next winter with the elite kids is all that matters.

LOL, come on......you must have the memory of a knat? Did we not gain recruits that were not on the board in January (bell, Ramsey, etc.)? Did we not lose recruits to other schools that were not in the picture 1 month before? Give the coaches a break, they deserve it!
We probably arent going to get him any ways. He's just not a guy to get attached to.
Why couldn't we get Yearby and Michel? It seems like the story keeps changing. When we were recruiting Collins, we already had Yearby committed. There was talk that taking two backs in '13 could scare Michel off. I never heard anyone say that Yearby would scare him off.
Christo omnino nihil praeponere
Let's let the this play out. FSU will need to make some ground up now that Eddie Gran is now in Cincy. Gran had a great relationship with Michel, but it is obvious that FSU has dropped off a little bit when Gran left.
You guys ever think that Jimbo might like Yearby better?and that the coaches dont want to do anything to ruin their relationship with him by putting full court press for Sony.
Whether they like Yearby better or not, FSU needs to sign at least 2 RBs in this class so I'm not quite sure how you are supposed to land another talented back without putting on the "full court press."
LOL, we will not land Sony and Yearby in the same class, and wasn't going to with Gran here either. Full court press for 2 kids that are in the same area hardly ever works, one or the other is going to get pissed. #themoreyouknow
