I'm not saying that Spurrier or any of our other coaches have to kiss @$$ to get players to come here. All I want to know is why can't they go see these players like the other teams are? Ryan Bartow said Fedora has been by Veal's HS at least five times. Why can't our coaches do that? I don't necessarily think that means puckering up to a player.

Maybe SOS is too busy winning 11 games and beating Fedora?

It's not what Spurrier does. It's not who he is or has been at any point in his career. That will never change. Keep in mind a lot of kids and parents love Spurrier for this. BAW's Mom thinks Spurrier is honest and is why she supported her son playing for him.

It's hard to get to like a guy that you only met once or twice. And as far as honesty goes, most people are honest or at least they are going to appear that way to recruits.

Spurrier tells them to come here and work hard and help us win or go somewhere else and we will beat you. No promises, no lies. As mentioned earlier, many recruits like his honesty and it has apparantly been working well for him.

I am not saying players want a close personal relationship with their coach, though most probably do, but they at least want interact and get to know the guy a little bit up close. This wouldn't be THAT big of a deal, and I doubt we are out of this, but we NEED Tackles, and already lost Greene to Clemson and Bailey is or at least was leaning that way too. Are dudes THAT scared to have to try to block SEC DEs?

That's what the assistant coaches are for. Those are the coaches who will spend the most time with the players.

Once again Spurrier does not want to be his buddy. He is looking for men. He is looking for Football players. If Veal does not like Spurrier because he does " not know him " do you think Spurrier will lose sleep over it. No. Spurrier will find another OL. I also disagree that honesty is a common trade mark when it comes to recruiting. Far from it to tell you the truth.

OL Mason Veal of Charlotte has strong ties to USC thru his parents. Both went there and his father played football for the Gamecocks. But that hasn’t prevented Veal from developing strong feelings for two Gamecock rivals. Veal told TarHeelIllustrated.com that he currently favors Clemson and North Carolina though he doesn’t consider the two to be his finalists. Veal said he’d heard the most from the Tigers, Tar Heels and Tennessee prior to the start of the dead period. He plans to make his decision before the start of his senior season.

I didn't say he didn't like Spurrier, I said he likes the others more because they actually spent time with him and actually the gave the guy the opportunity to like them.

He'll be spending more time with Elliott. That's the focus.

no recruit gets to know and spends tons of time with Spurrier, unless you are Clowney/Marcus status.
