I really hope Denson flips to the Gators on NSD just to add spice to this epic failure of a man
As many might know Laremy Tunsil has canceled his visit to FSU this weekend
That makes 2 straight years this clown couldn't get the 2 best tackles in america/florida when both kids were located within 2 hours from Tally, couldn't even get them to visit officially
This man has to be the worst recruiter I have ever seen in my life, but the good news Tunsil and Kirkland loved the guy per FSU websites
I have officially given up on FSU while this man is on the staff, there is no point in having any hopes of winning it all so long as your OL is hot garbage

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.
I wish Denson would flip to UF, but we don't want him. Not good enough.
You can do better than that bro
I know, I'm tired though. Whatever I just can't wait till Golson flips to Bama or Ole Miss. Trick gonna Trick.
Its done like this
Say Im on the FSU board, this right here would get the morons all kinds of heated
1- stones throw away from Tally
2- coached by former Nole
3- his position is wide open and a desperate need in this class, could literally come in and start right away
4- have a kid and former friend that he looked up to on the team and doing well that could show him the ropes
Can't even get him to visit officially
Biggest fail ever and he has had some seriously fails
Trickett could get raped by 3 dudes tomorrow and my first thought wouldn't be " is he okay ? " instead I would laugh and ask if anybody got video of it so I can fap to it
I don't even understand how he still has a job. I'm not complaining though.
As for Tunsil, same thing for UF. 30 minutes away, SEC, and we need OT's also (granted not as much as FSU) Kid just doesn't want to play in Florida which is weird. I feel like he is gonna bust anyways. I think he is just going to be an average run of the mill OT.
Hope you are right but I just can't get over how funny this is getting in terms of FSU OL recruiting
Its obvious kids just don't want to play for him and I love reading the FSU sites talk about how all these kids love him and blah blah blah
Listening to them all try and cover for themselves right now is hilarious
I agree, our OL recruiting is that of a pile of shit that has been rained on for days. Soft, slushy and stinky.
Its downright comical at this point and I would love a god damn explanation for it from either Jimbo or Rick himself
Something has to be done
Right now we have 3 with almost no hope for anybody else that is any good, and the 2 we brought in last year are already gone after 1 season at FSU, if guys like Foose transfer then FSU is beyond hurting for numbers
Im downright amazed and find myself wondering what they are thinking behind those closed doors, cause any moron can see this isn't just NoVa freaking out anymore
This is a seriously alarming problem, bringing in 3 for the last 2 years ( this is if Golson and Denson even stick ) is just insanity for the future and even the present
If FSU suffers any kind of injuries they will be starting guys who would struggle to play at schools like FIU
And yet, there are a few in the FSU fan base who are supporting Trickett still
We all know Trick luhhh the kids.
Why don't the kids love him back?
The problem is on jimbo. Trickett is jimbos Jeff. He will never fire his bff. As far as I'm concerned if jimbo refuses to make the change he can go to. If no injuries next year the line should be decent. Then you will have fsu fans say see I told you he w as good. Then the line will go back to crape the next year bc of his sorry recruiting.
But Fish said....
Nah, bro. We're good. Signed Humphries last year, who shits on Theus. Max Garcia is on campus. Got Tyler Moore and Trenton Brown. Tunsil wasn't stepping into any playing time any time soon. He had the FSU RT job soon as the ink dried on his LOI. Now Hart will start, and boy has that kid regressed.
And I think Tunsil will be a first round pick. Pups getting a good one.
Yup, the OL after next year.... especially if somebody like Erving leaves early... is downright scary
All 3 major sites right now are in epic meltdown mode and all the site writers look like total jackasses for trying to sell the hope of landing certain players that anybody with a brain knew were complete and total long shots
I would pay money to hear Trickett try to explain it to the media, this is where Jimbo's blackouts are really buying him extra time and his assistants too
Trickett should seriously be fired on the spot for many things, but not even getting a visit out of a Tunsil shows just how bad it truly is
IMO there is no excuse not to land him, but to not even get a visit is so pathetic its just funny
And although Kirkland was a total long shot as well, it was pure retardation to use his official visit in late november
I wish I could post on Noles 247 so badly, I want nothing more than to give one of my famous I told you so threads and watch the haters go nuts
One of the excuses I read last night on Nole Digest was " he only likes to work with 10 or so guys at a time and get the most out of them " I still haven't stopped laughing since and that was around 10PM last night.... and no, he wasn't being sarcastic for I know the poster and his history
The best part though is the Canes think they got themselves a prize in Coley, next to Trickett he was the most worthless member of the Jimbo staff and they don't believe me when I say he was almost as poor of a recruiter
Stoops and Coley will both be fired by 2015, book it

I have a friend who played for WVU when Trickett coached there. Said he was the biggest dickhead he ever met. Not suprising that kids don't like him.
Didn't you give up on FSU last year and the year before and year before due to Rick.
Our OL situation is beyond comprehension. I am on the brink of total meltdown mode. I haven't had any Tunsil hope for a long time and just before the no-visit news came out, I posted that he didn't even exist to me as a recruit. No rational Nole thought we had a chance despite overly optimistic posters declarations of Tunsils admiration for Trickett (yeah sure) and despite never being mentioned in his rotation of top 5s. The news just became a catalyst for years of OL frustration to come out. If we lose Golson, watch out!
Deserve got nothing to do with it...
This isn't even on one Trick pony anymore, this is on Jimbo. Everyone knows the OL is a bad situation. Jimbo should have taken over the OL cruiting or fired Trickett. Either way it's Jimbos fault and if he doesn't change will be the reason he is fired within the next season or two.
Sometimes the truth is a tough pill to swallow
Got a feeling once Jr graduates Rickety Trickett is gone
So you're telling me that you aren't a fan of Trickett's NoVa? This is a revelation.
Here's my take on it - both FSU and Bama are trying to build or maintain themselves as hard-nosed, physical OLs. Bama is already there and trying to stay there, and I think FSU is trying to get into that mold. At this point, I'd say this: the way schools like FSU, Bama and LSU - and Florida - try to do things ... well, it's not for everybody.
As for Trickett, I doubt your mind can be changed, but I still think the guy's a good coach. I coached a kid in HS that was a 4-yr starter for Trickett, and he loved him. Obviously not all do. Look at this way ... let's say Tunsil goes to Ole Miss. Or Georgia. Two perennially soft schools. It's not going to bother me at all. Means the kid is soft-minded and wouldn't make it.
Let him go pass block for 50 snaps a game, throw himself on the ground on screens, and be underdeveloped when he finishes (talking mainly Ole Miss here).
But I would agree that it's bad that FSU couldn't even get a visit. And your lack of OL commits/depth in this class is a little bit alarming, but that's on the whole staff and Jimbo. Even if you got Tunsil, you still only have two other OLs committed, assuming Golson stays, correct.
Anyway, you never called me.
Ha I was wondering when we would see a Trickett thread after the Tunsil news became official.
lulz. keep em coming. you here all week?
