Eh what can you do?

Would be better if these guys would actually wait to 'commit' until they actually decide where they want to go, instead of just committing on impulse or for attention like so many of them seem to do.

For me it was Dunlap. Gray was close 2nd, but given his lack of contribution, doesn't matter as much.

Don't know enough about it, but he's tweeting his career record and state title which he presumably didn't play for. So hardly see how that's a deal breaker, but understand it could have been. But if w postcard wishing him luck got his little gator underoos in a bunch then maybe we didn't need him.

I'll let it go as soon as he changes his twitter handle and takes down Marcus. Until then he's representing a school he doesn't want to play for and trying to gain shine off of Marcus which Rolin doesn't deserve.

If something that stupid led him to back out of a commitment to us then I have no problem letting him walk. Muschamp is going to kiss his ass until the second he walks on campus, then he's just someone else. If he's looking to get sold on getting sunshine pumped up his butt, I'm glad he's going elsewhere.

Hate to be a downer on the pity party but there are greater tragedies in the world than losing one recruit. We have back to back 10-2 seasons while 'losing' the recruiting war every year to the UGA's, UF's, Clemson's, etc. Losing Matt Rolin and his 4.7+ speed doesn't worry me. Not trying to be mean, but if he doesn't want to be here or gets his nips in a twist over a postcast, best of luck in the future.

Get the next guy who's HUNGRY for the offer! Win Anyway!

what may be a problem is whammies new duties. he may not be on the road as much..those responsibilities may have someone else with added duties. or maybe a new guy in a territory he isnt familiar with. i dont think most realize how we have to coddle a recruit. they know its the one and only time they can have a coaching staff cater too them. it is the nature of the beast.

Don't forget John Fulton. He goes to Alabama and I don't think he's seen the field yet. He definitely would have gotten some playing time with us this year.

Default Re: Rolin to Florida

We really had a few things working against us. First, our scheme 4-2-5, Florida runs a 3-4..... so twice as many LB. Second, Fla has 2 SR, 2 JR, 2 SOPH, and 2 FR....we have 2 very young starting LB in 2013 that are 1-2 years ahead of him, and we already have 3-4 LB committed this year. Third, Rolin was going to play the WILL if I remember correctly, so is Larenz Bryant who was always going be ahead of him. Could that change going forward, sure, but starting out he would have been behind one of the best hs LB in the country. The point is Rolin has a better chance to see PT with Fla. Also, Rolin's high school won the state championship yesterday, but his school plays a notch below the best high schools in Virginia. Doesn't mean he is not legit, but his level of competition is below the best.

Why blame the coaches. We have had top 20 recruiting classes every year since SOS has been here as I recall. They were good enough to convince him to come here and have stayed in touch with him frequently ever since. Look, Florida has a national following that has won national championships, we haven't. I was hoping his family ties would have played a larger role with keeping him a Carolina commit, and given him a reason to want to take us to the next level and keep us there, but obviously he didn't think that was important enough. Who knows what motivates these kids. But to just blame the coaches without specifics or other inside information is unfair.
