Assuming we lose kirkland, (i know it 's not over until it's over) which is true because of looming um sanctions, after Golsen what other ot commits are coming here? quite frankly, things look bleak for 2015 and beyond for the ol.
I have no confidecne looking at the Jimbo as hc ol classes that we can make this up next year (which is really too late for ot for 2015) given our last 3 ol classes
2010: The fooose is on the loose-that was it.
2011: a very good class
2012: Glauser- a one and done that really weasn't even aCC caliber much less elite
2. Fell into Watson-did a faitrly good job and there was reason to think he would be a one a done if he did a good job this year. however, Watson does not matter for 2015 because Having enough ol spots is not the issue.
Newberry and Mitchell: both were asked to go to the ol and both said no. I do not blame them because Newberry will probably be a de starter this year and Mitchell has a ton of potenital at dl.
Besides, if we had recruited them to be ol's neither would have come here anyway.
Robbing the dl of backups because the ol perosonnel is inadequate is no way to build an ol and would, in the long term, damage dl recruiting because of a possible lack of trust about the motive for recruiting a dl.
Looking at the last 3 ol classes hows that bad luck has little to with this problem.
I am open to posters telling my we will be fine 2015 and beyond.
Im gonna downvote the shvt out of you if you go on another diatribe about this today.
Kerr and Golson at OT is a good class and Denson/Hoefiled on the interior is good. We met needs. Come back next year and sign 5 good ones. Focus is Damian Prince, Reilly Gibbons, Corey Martinez and Mason Cole.
Unfortunately I agree with him. We need 5 OL and are not going to get 5.
"Some people think football is a matter of life and death, I assure you, it is much more serious than that."
and your downvotes are going to help make the ol good in the future exactly how again?
As in specifically how are your downvotes going to help the ol's we have here in 2015 make blocks?
You are above being so childish.
Our poor recruiting has made this situation acute. We have only gotten one juco ol (watson) at FSu under 6 years of trickett that was worth a damn. There is no reason to think as long as he is here our avg is going to get better. for whatever reaosn, he cannot get juco ol's that are any good to come here. Maybe it is poor evals, I do not know. It really doesn't matter because the evidence is damning regaridng juco ol's at fSu int he last 6 years.
so the bandiad approach will not work as evidenced by the fact it has very rarely worked while Trickett has been here. In all fairness to Trickett it rarely works anywhere.
I think you need to seek professional help.... your obsession on this is beyond un-healthy.
I think Josue Matias was an elite recruit at OT before his knee injury which he is past now. He's performed admirably for two years and is ready to slide out. LG we have multiple good options at. Maybe Bryan Stork with Barron and Lovelady battling out for center.
We are set well with adding Kerr who will get to 290 after a year and Golson to back up two OTs who will return in 2014.
Interior we are well off at. Denson needs a year but will be ready to start after that.
Sorry, you just cant sucker me in to this reoccurring obsessive episode.

And writing classes. This was brutal to read.
Tldr - "trickett slept with my ex and I hate him for it"
appeantly jack nicholson needed to do this post because the 5 downvotes make it clear that a lot of you can't handle the truth. again, i doubt your downnvotes will make the ol block better in 2015 and beyond.
Obsession? Can you point to one flaw in my logic? one?
not obsessed, just sick and tired of seeing this ol be the year in and out achille's heel of this team.
I think many of you understand losing kirkland (if we do) is not good but fail to see how truly bad it is. if we flip tunsil it is still not good but the impact is lessened. flipping tunsil at this stage is a hail mary.
so we can have reasoned discussions or people can whine and not discuss which is an admisison that you agree with the substance of my post.
if you cannot take what you perecive to be bad news it is ok to use the ignore button.
True mark of an insane person, he posts the same shvt over and over and when folks tell him to STHU he keeps repeating that we just cant handle the truth.
I admire the hell out of your relentlessness and will upvote every comment you make in this thread.
We dont want to hear this, it goes against we want to believe! Sunshine and puppy dogs only! Get the pitchforks boys.... down votes arent good enough
You think we dont you two are the same person? You ain't foolin nobody.
It's amazing how when you read something over and over and over and over by the same person, your mind conforms itself to the "style" of the author. I don't even have to read his posts 3 or 4 times anymore to weed out the dangling modifiers, misspelled names of recruits, and other grammatical shortcomings.
In short, TNOLE is our very own Herman Melville. Quite an accomplishment if you ask me.
And here's 27's evil twin. You can roll with the "No one here can deal with reality" version of 27's "They can't handle the truth!" routine. But honestly we are all just wanting to roll into NSD, see who we sign and then discuss it then.
We have 4 committed you think we strike out with all the rest of our OL prospects or do you think we lose Golson?
Also lets keep in mind we place Mongo last year he'll probably sign with us and Jermaine Eluemanur (think I spelled that wrong) seemed to really like us and if we need a JUCO OT next year I think we can get him.
A good OL is needed especially with a inexperienced QB (hopefully) and I'm not sure we have that next year
Just the daily rant from TNoles....
27, you may be obnoxious, obsessive, and annoying.
But guess what? You're also f*cking right. Trickett absolutely does not pull his weight on the recruiting trail.
I have said I agree with him on his stance, but the constant daily rants have become just meh... We all get it..
its not that i disagree with you...its that you posting the same thing all the time isnt going to change what the team/coaches do it reality. you've made you feelings known, no lets see what actually happens and we can re-evaluate then. no need to talk about it everyday and i believe that is where the downvotes come from
No we don't, please TNole27 tell us more about or inadequate coaches and why all them fat mommas boys aren't coming here. I say good, we don't need fifteen overweight, five star wusses running around campus with their peanutheads eating everything in site. I couldn't care less about children I've never met and it puzzles me why everyone else does as well. If they want to come be part if this great University like we all have or are currently then great. If not, go pop mommas tit back in your mouth so that ole man eater Trickett won't get ya. This world is full of sissies and we don't want them here representing the GARNETT AND GOLD!!! GO NOLES as we ride into, through and past NSD like a bad ex girlfriend. Piece my bro and sister Noles. Enjoy this beautiful day.

2011 was the best Oline class in the country I think. Last year and this year we are doing fine. A MAJOR upgrade from the Foose year. That said it would be great to get Tunsil & Kirkland but I do not see it happening. We still got 2 stud Oline man in Denson and Golson and the others are solid too. Hoefield has Captain written all over him one day.

GO NOLES! / SCALP EM!
You guys love it and you know it.
Manti, how dare you accuse me of such! I'm battling cancer and having to fake my own death in order to escape drug dealers who were after my family. Why in the world would accuse me of being TNOLES? What kind of sick person pretends to be someone else on a message board, in order to play sick games with the other posters? Manti, I believe in you.... even if Alabama doesn't.
