I was laughing for thinking this was wayyyyyy to late in the game for us to be offering this kid. Two things I will take from this move. A. We will not sign Alex Collins. He was probably classy enough to tell our staff to move on. Iits not likely we would take 3 backs so offering Green is a good indicator Collins is long gone. B. This is probably a good indication that our new Running Backs coach is close to being on board. Maybe he has a prior relationship with Green With all the shakeups at Green's favorite schools this could get interesting. I doubt we can pull him this late, but supposedly he is interested in FSU. Damn shame though Gran left, Collins is a beast and it cost FSU. Oh well congrats on Collins Canes.
Green is interested in every school. If he can get a few more interviews out of the deal he'll do a visit.
Green is going to the SEC or Michigan.
Evidence the downtown system doesn't work: I laughed and said we offered too late and hot hammered. We're about 8 months late here.
What shakeup is happening at Derrick Green's favorite school?
Not really. I don't think the kid is ready to comitt. He said long time ago he probably wouldn't sign by signing day. His favorite school was OSU, so we've followed this kid for 2-3 years. Whatever will get him the most publicity is what he's going to do.
I hope Alex Collins doesn't pick the Gators, I rather he goes to FSU but I doubt it
All signs point to UM at this time, but get the sense he really wants to play down south, could be intriguing offer to the kid.
I am hoping Collins goes to Miami. I doubt he goes to UF.
If he wants play down south he will be in the SEC, you can take that one to the bank. FSU= too late.
Why So Serious?
Collins is going to Miami
I don't get what changed ?
I heard he wants to play for a team that is or is going to be under sanctions. Penn State is too cold, USC is too far, so that leaves Miami.
Just kidding, I thought for a little UF actually had a shot but in reality he has been UM since the beginning.

Location bro, own it and love it. If FSU sucked but still got recruits due to location id own it....oh wait, lol.
But seriously, huge land if you get him back. With as versatile and YES not made of stone as Duke is I think Collins co-starts on a 10-2 team next year. One more bowl ban jmo.
I agree with this Dundee.
Bowl bans don't scare me its the scholly reductions that I'm worried about.
BTW my prediction next yr is 9-3 and in 2014 we contend for a NC.
Most of these kids have an idea where they want to go, I think some of them commit too soon then they realize they want to take visits but don't want the Backlash from the fans. It happens.
I just don't see it at all. Rfr Olsen at Qb? Multiple losses along OL. 2010 and 2011 classes were awful and then you will add about 32 total in 13 and 14. So a new and young Qb guiding a thin, top heavy team.
That and Fisch will be GONE after 2013. But hey, I like breaking things down. If I posted what you did you and your crew would just emoticon me into oblivion.

Yh Fisch could get a HC job after next season so that's a worry.
If not he will at least get a ~ 200k a year raise elsewhere. Just saying bro, that's some homer shit with the roster you'll have. You'll have some real top end talent but the second team will still be crappy.
I'm gonna have to actually see a defense before I believe there actually is a defense.
Lolz at being worried about scholarship reductions and then predicting a national title contention year in just 2 seasons
Standard ABS right there
fsufsu said... I've got about 10 great stories on Lane but all you need to know is he will never be a loser, that's for sure.
Green looking for a handout?
