Muschamp and his staff so far have had a very high hit rate on recruits so far. I trust their judgement.

Why do you think we went all the way to California to get a QB? Don't you think there are instate players who would love to play QB here? Why do you think we're recruiting other guys from California?

Your argument makes no sense. This isn't PeeWee League ball where every player is guaranteed a certain number of snaps, a juice box at the end of the game, and a trophy at the end of the season.

I'm totally on board with the mindset of recruiting the very best players in the state yearly. But to have a winning program you have to get the best guys you can, doesn't matter where they come from.

If that means signing 4 out of the top 5 in state guys one year, 1 the next year, 2 the next year, and 8 the following year then that's what the staff has to do. The instate talent level fluctuates so much year to year the staff has to go where the talent is.

Clemson won a Natty, came close to another, and almost played for three in a row from following the mindset of getting the best players no matter where they are. Bama plays for a Natty pretty much every year because they follow the mindset of getting the best players, no matter where they are.

See a trend?
Disregard.

You never will "get it".

Actually, I do "get it". Which is why I gave rationale.

His coach is a Carolina grad who was a team trainer when Holtz was here...no need for a meltdown
