Glad to see them striking out on nearly everybody.
It's a beautiful thing
They still have a top class but it is nice seeing them missing out so far (except for sorry-ass Fowler.)
Deserve got nothing to do with it...
Agreed, but we aren't lighting it up right now.
we are ina glass house right now
Couldn't you say we missed on all those as well? and we Lost Fowler
Only player we lost out on was Williams (bc of Dante).....the rest we were never favored for.
Only one king of NSD this year for sure: Bama. They even lost some as well but only they didn't have some serious desires go lacking.
They lost Winston and Goldman though who they desperately wanted.
We weren't expecting them, UF was (up until the last few days). Those guys are equivalent to our Goldman, Darby and Northrup only our supposed leans signed with us.
Ummm, other than Fowler everything is going as expected for us. Yes, technically we missed those guys, but most had them as uf leans or at least them having a good chance to get them. If we get Darby then guys like Josh were almost dead on with their projections.
You mean we didn't get the #1 dt a 4 star lb and a 4 star corner? where did they sign? How bout getting darby? not to mention we already had a better class than they did. They got fouler and struck out on every other recruit. go check their message boards they ae in full fire muschamp mode.
UF has a much bigger need at WR than we do. If we get Darby, losing on Howard won't be a big deal.

Fwiw in terms of how a coach would grade a class Florida missed much much worse than we did today as long as we get Darby. We aren't in a glass house, just a brittle vinyl siding one right now.
They gain a 5* DE, we lose 1.....so how are they striking out?
Recruiting is about filling needs, they had a need at DE/OLB and filled it. They had other needs they missed bad on. We lost a DE but retained two of the top 5 DEs in America.
Fsu was included in their choices of schools, JHC was never favored to go to UF, Howard was, Nelson hasn't been for quite some time, Williams was thought to be an Auburn lean. Its not about who is having a better day, We have done well. Don't get me wrong I'm glad they didn't get those players.
Cant get them all.
At the end of the day its two top five classes for FSU and UF.
Glad to see UF striking out, but Muschump pulled a fast one on Jimbo (with Fowler). Jimbo had his pants down on that one.
UF missed hard this year. They needed playmakers at WR and RB and they didn't add them. It's about improving your team. They hit DE, they hit OL. But WR and RB are black eyes for a team that struggled to score points last year.
So RB Matt Jones who is 6'3'' 225 is garbage?? We landed 2 WR so far in Latroy Pittman an Raph Andrades, not to mention Stefon Diggs will be a Gator come Feb 10th...Did we want to add another RB?? No question that we wanted too, but its not gunna make or break our team...The 2013 class will give UF the RBs we need, an we have a great start landing RB Adam Lane already.. By the way, Fowler gunna look real nice in Orange n Blue
I think (every level headed fan) could see this coming for about 2 weeks now..
Only one we thought we would get is Diggs ( who hasn't committed)
And Howard (before he went on his OV the Miami)
First off yall will be lucky to sign diggs. Meyer will finish yall off and sign diggs on the 10th. And with Fowler he is gonna look good losing to Fsu his entire career. He won't last long no matter which college he would have chosen. Matt Elam part 2. Chooses the gates and can never beat Fsu.
