    Recruiting Update: Summer 2022 Edition

    I phrased it that way because you hijacked the top 116 thread. I am keeping this hijacked thread in the main football forum for now, but I will move it to the recruiting forum later.

    Recruiting Update: Summer 2022 Edition

    I hear you. The entire Gator Nation is fed up with mediocrity, but we need to give Napier a longer leash at first simply because the grading criteria are so different now. Before the NIL & Transfer Portal Era (NILTPE) it was rather easy to assess a new coach’s potential before coaching a live...

    Recruiting Update: Summer 2022 Edition

    The recruiting landscape is too different this year compared to previous years to draw fair comparisons. LSU, Alabama, Texas A&M, and Florida are all ranked between 35 and 50 for the class of 2023. Georgia is the only SEC powerhouse ranked in the top 10. My guess is that some teams are going to...

    Gators in the USFL

    It is hard to look at these Bandits and call it good football. Spurrier set an impossible standard to meet with his Bandits. These Bandits are barely at 0.500 this season and may finish that way with two games to go in the regular season.

    Gators in the USFL

    That definitely helps. I attended the game between Orlando Apollos and San Antonio Commanders and Right both coaches made it an interesting game with decent quality. Spurrier was clearly the best coach with the best team, but the Arizona Hot Shots were almost as good and were able to beat the...

    Gators in the USFL

    I am not really impressed with the USFL. I prefer the AAF.

    Recruiting Update: Summer 2022 Edition

    On the topic of Arch Manning, all this proves is that talented athletes have always looked at UF as a top destination. I will divert attention away from a 17-year old kid and look at this from the lens of UF sports at large. This goes back into the pre-Spurrier days when even UF was called a...

    Recruiting Update: Summer 2022 Edition

    The next two seasons really are pivotal for football and amateur athletics across the board. The NIL + Transfer Portal Era is really taking off in 2022, and Florida will have all new coaches across multiple sports, several new facilities, and lots of new donors. “Wait and See” is the approach...

    Former Florida LB and Jackson State EDGE James Houston selected by Detroit Lions in Round 6 of 2022 NFL Draft

    Yes. Deion Sanders never earned a degree, so he would not qualify as a head coach at a public university in the state of Florida without a waiver. It helps that Jackson State is a great HBCU destination. JSU has produced four Pro Football Hall of Famers, including Walter Payton. I assume James...

    Florida Gators #2 with All-time NFL Draft Picks, #6 with 1st Round picks

    With the #23 pick of the 2022 NFL Draft, the Buffalo Bills selected Florida Gator defensive back Kaiir Elam and extended the Gators' 70-year streak of having at least one player selected. Florida is one of four blue-blood programs that has maintained this streak, with the others being Michigan...
