Gathering a few 3 stars from Florida is doable but if you guys think we're going to dip into Florida and land 4 and 5 stars your are drinking the koolaid.
Think of all the schools that are closer to home that you have to overcome ( Miami, auburn, fsu, Georgia, Florida, etc)
It's not going to happen . This staff will have yo learn that like the other staffs did. Don't get your hopes up on Collins and the big lineman
History tells us it can't be done
So just don't try? Right?
If you have a great connection with a kid it's not a waste of time but most of the time , it will be just that -- wasting time
Miami, fla, auburn , Georgia , Bama and FSU of the wifld don't lett many 4-5 stars leave the area

Yep...I'm thinking we should just give up. Only recruit Arkansas.
We're probably in the final two for Collins...and also the final two for Kirkland. And this is after getting in very late and getting them both to take one of their five officials to Arkansas.
We're not going to win many of these...but if we can win one or two of these a year from S. Florida, everything changes.
If we strike out every year, so be it. However...I'd rather us give it a shot and try to improve our standing on the national stage.

That's right, overeact
Overreacting is what you did in your OP. To say we're drinking the Koolaid if we think we can go into Florida and ever get a 4* or 5* recruit is overreacting.
This is HDN thinking and is not true nor holds no water....Think BIG my friend and BIG things happen!!! Have a drink and get back to us on Wednesday.... Hope your night goes better than the way you think b/c it's small thinking which gets you small results...GHG!
I'm not saying we will get one or both, but I do think coach BB and this staff have a much better chance just because of their deeper ties to south Florida than previous coaching staff(s).
Thing we all have to realize is that there are many more 4*s and 5*s in Florida than Miami, FL and FSU can take...and I think we can compete with the other programs who go down there...especially since we have 3-4 coaches who have worked that area for most of their coaching careers.
If those coaches weren't here...I'd say "don't try"...but with these coaches, it's worth our efforts.
I would be on board with that for a couple of years
I'd like to know how many 4-5 stars where left over after bama, Uga, auburn, fsu , Miami and fla were done
We've never had coaches with direct Florida ties either.
Wake up, the Nutt era is over.
I'm only responsible for what I SAY, not for what YOU UNDERSTAND.
Collins is a hog. Miami pulled DK's scholly so good luck to you.
What makes u think that?
I'll take some 3* from Florida all day long. Go ask Butch Davis about the value of 3* stars from Florida vs Some Texas talent. If you have guys that can develop on staff...they are $$$
Ole Miss can beat any team in America it seems, so maybe we should not give up just yet :)
Just that he dropped Wisconsin and followed belema(spelling) to Arkansas, it just makes me think they have a strong connection. His twitter is also drowned in WPS but that might be due to the size and passion of the two fan bases.
I hope I am wrong but Collins putting on the razorback hat on NSD wouldn't surprise me.
I suspect you will be wrong in time as this coaching staff gets enough time to recruit
A player. Regardless, I'll take a 3* S FL player over one from AR,LA or TN any day of
the week. They may be rated at three, but the level of talent that they compete against
would make them in reality a 4*....
Peace, Love, Toes in the Sand....
Each kid is an individual and this is a unique situation. Coaches had little time and needed to go where they had the best connections. If anyone thinks for us to be in the top two of 2 players like the south florida 2 is a waste of time you do not understand recruiting and especially this year with such a short time.
We will know wed when the letters come in and until then we are just talking to hear ourselves talk -- no substance.
