The place to talk about the Florida State Seminoles
The place to discuss general topics outside of Florida State
You have no favorite boards.
"hate to say it but you're wrong, Winston went to Tuscaloosa just as many times as Fowler went to Florida, the difference is Winston firmed up and Fowler looks to be switching, people forget that before Urban left he was going to commit to Florida. Sometimes we end up on the good end sometimes we don't, the fact that Jimbo has stood by the kid is a sign of his character. Just let it play out...
BTW....Dante saying he was to sick to talk on Sunday and then did an interview with a Gatorsports the same night should of been a telling sign...
Its not like we're exactly hurting, as long as Casher makes the grades to get in, this defensive line class is a Home Run regardless if we get Fowler or not..."
We need 3 quality DEs in this class. After next year we lose Jenkins, Carradine, and most likely Werner.
"The only impression I care about is the one he makes on the field."
Ok......good for you?
I'm not assuming the worst. I'm not one of those on here saying it's over or he's a Gator. I just don't care anymore whether this kid is a Gator or a Nole. I'm over the drama and I'm giving the kid credit by saying he knows what he's doing. He's not an idiot.
Please let the coaches be on Williams' front porch tomorrow.

Our coaches need to do what's best for the team and Williams's ceiling is at least as high as Fowler's at DE. We need to ensure that we land one of Fowler and Williams. At some point we need to go after the one who wants to be at FSU...and I think its obvious that guy is Williams. Sometimes you need to cut loose the baggage to do what's best for the team. Its hard to tell if Fowler is trolling FSU or UF, either way he's done a great job, not sure its worth it though.
Fowler committed to FSU..Fowler flirting with UF...Fowler letting it be known that we have enough defensive linemen committed... HMMMMMMM........troll?.....maybe?????
It is obvious from the beginning that Dante does not understand the meaning of the word "commit" or loves being in the limelight. Committed players have an LOI signing ceremony on NSD but they do not pick hats since they are committed. The uncommitted players are the ones that are in the limelight since they have nationally televised ceremonies. The fact that he wants to have a hat picking ceremony even though he is committed makes it obvious that he likes all the attention. Unfortunately for him, either "committed" really means favorite or he knows where he is going and he is playing a game to get the attention. Even in his interview after his Florida visit he said that he was 100% committed to FSU but we will see what will happen on NSD. With kids like this, we have to take them the way they are. With all the media attention in recruiting it will probably get even worse, but we are also to blame because we also love all the drama that is involved.
Chuck, I pretty much agree with everything you said except the last sentence. I don't like the drama. If you could tell me for sure who we were getting Wednesday then I would appreciate it.
Im gonna put my faith in Jimbo on this one. He hasnt let me down yet other than Steward and it is hard to blame Jimbo when everyone knows Clemson plays dirty
Call me crazy but the picture just seems too dramatic. In the sense that he's playing up the drama by posting that.
I'm not saying he's not torn to some degree but I just think he'd have flipped already is he's really going to. I mean if he really wanted to make a splash on NSD he'd keep all the Gator talk quiet and then pick up their ugly-ass hat during the ceremony.
Look the kid has every right to do whatever he wants. But I'd just hope Dante (with encouragement from his dad) will do the classy thing. If you have a change of heart and want to back out of a commitment, you do so in a timely manner. Being accountable is part of growing up.
That picture is legitimately meaningless. And I am not going to sit here and guarantee you he signs with FSU. But that picture is meaningless. Muschamp brought the jersey and asked him to put it on for a picture.

FSUFSU, Smartest comment I have ever seen you make.
Fowler will be a Nole on Wednesday. If not, the first round of Prozac is on me on Thursday.
