We can't lose out on Nolen after we lost Booker.

We have to get the big uglies on the lines to go up against Bama, UGA and now Oklahoma.

To honor our recruiting I need to change my name to Lolgator because after reading that from Jackson you have to laugh at our recruiting.

I posted a few days ago that we'd find a way to lose Nolen. Our recruiters could screw up a soup sandwich. It's totally disheartening to say the least.

It's hard to follow UF recruiting these days. It is so brutally incompetent.

The Etienne tidbit is INFURIATING

That's one that sounds like he stretched it because why would they ignore him? Why wouldn't they take the call and ask him to come in for a visit to get to know everyone and take it from there to buy some time. It doesn't matter how many other backs you are recruiting you would keep on him to be safe.

Could be, yes.

But at the very least the kid reached out to the coach. At UF, the RB Coach should have every major back in there region programmed into his phone, on the off chance that he needs to contact said back. A recruit like Etienne showing up on your caller ID should trigger an immediate response. I guarantee Gillespie has him programmed in and Gillespie doesn't even need him =)

Because if Mark can reach Etienne then Etienne should damn sure be able to reach a coach on a moment's notice.

I've never had the type of site where we ran 'rumormill' type of updates. I can absolutely be wrong, because things change by the minute in recruiting or because I got some bad info.

But even if that is the case, it came from someone I trusted, not the second cousin of a woman who was standing in line at the store and might have overheard something.

Everything on here came directly from the prospect himself, or when stated, a family member.

I've never made a thing up to make UF or a kid look good or bad.

I share what I get and let the cards fall where they may.

I posted screenshots of the exchange here: https://insidethegators.com/forums/4/topics/13160/replies/66681#66681

Nolen chooses to go twice as far to see a team not in his top 5 instead of coming to see the team he said was leading after his visit.

Our recruiting makes me physically ill.

Nolens dad is running his recruitment I think the kid loves UF but these aren't the type of kids we don't get. I'm moving on from Nolen and hope I'm pleasantly surprised later

Mark I didn't think you stretched the truth I thought he did since why would a coach not answer the call of a 4 star.

Seeing what happened with Jackson it could be true.

This was a great job by you on the report.

I could see that happened.. you have to remember this is the coaching staff that didn't make room for a 5 star safety last year... this is staff that the head coach said he didn't see Marco throw that shoe... this is a coaching staff that have took in more academic non-qualifiers than five stars so to me if it's right on par with what we do

Mullen should be asked about how a 4 star back said he couldn't get in contact with our coaches.

We don't have to wonder why we can't recruit to the level we're used to.

He checked out a long time ago. I think he leaves recruiting up to his assistance and he focuses on the offense.

He can't be that good of a coach overall and be this bad at recruiting if he is really trying to recruit.

Mullen would be like did anyone ask if hes a 4 star on my rankings like he did to the question about Alabama recruiting 5 stars out of Florida.

What's really amazing is you doomsday Gator critics call yourselves fans !!? While the Georgia and Bama fans find a way to constantly support their HC you guys constantly whine .
Find a way to get behind Coach Mullen and his staff . Always room for improvement ! What's Kirby done with his 5 stars ? What's Harbaugh have to show for his elite classes ?
Either you're a Gator or your .. !! Go Gators !!!

In 5 years he's 4-1 against us, 2-1 against Mullen, has won the east 3 times, been to the playoff 1 time and finished in the final top 10 for 4 straight years.

He's been better at Georgia than Mullen has at Florida.

You can't be sober and argue that. It doesn't mean I'm not a fan if I give credit to Smart.

Kirby also won the SEC in that time.

The miracle ceiling for this class probably still rests in the 6-8 range, but the doomsday floor is probably (and I can't believe I'm typing this) around 18th now.
