Don't forget they all played for one of the worst coaches ever to coach at Tennessee.
The 13 EEs were the splash, take a close look at those 32 kids signed again.
if PSU's class was a disaster. With the #1 QB, I'll take disaster any day.
And as for the Rutgers 2012 class discussion, only reason they did anything is because Penn State's staff screwed up so many recruitments.
Not to mention getting out maneuvered for Bostwick by the Gators who signed 4 DT's!
Winningest Program in College Football since 1990!
Hate to agree with the Gator but dude you are right this was a nightmare of a recruiting season as I have seen in all my years as a Cane fan. I hope we have a Great year cause we will need it to keep the momentum for us. I am so glad the Basketball team is having the Success its having cause that truly is a Positive amongst all the negativiity for Miami.
Add to that and the new facilities we have some pluses going on, I really feel Stacy Coley will be a Dynamic player this year for Miami but losing Bostwick was more damaging than losing Matthew Thomas in my eyes that guy is a true stud.
I think UGA' EE's will really give them an advantage, despite what some people like to admit..
They have had 5* players in the past that didn't even materialize as much as their 4* folks whose 'game' was elevated..simply by their work ethic and coaching staff..
They have proven to be able to make great players out of what others might call 'no good..
The fact that they came close to winning the SECC against the tide speaks for itself..
We didn't see the FL, SC teams in that position.. They were not even in the mix-
I also think LSU will make good w/ what they have..
They may not have the EE's, but their huge time mgmt. errors in their match up w/ Clemson put them in the embarrassing category.. They'll make up for the image 'Blemish'.. You watch-!

You are obsessed with SC dude...... It takes us being on sanctions spearheaded by that ginger Associate Ad of yours ,Conboy, to even compete with us. Go have phone relations w Lennay. What does that say about your fine University that a returning All-American and future 1st round draft pick would rather have phone sex w a man than date the chicks in South Bend- pathetic

Lol Jesus calm down it wasn't a knock. You guys really did have a crappy recruiting cycle. You're saying you didn't?
Most of those guys ended up being players if I recall.

Gerry was on the CBSSports.com live stream. Our partnership is just getting started and didn't become official until some of the CBSSN plans were made.
Maybe it was looks, who knows :-)
He's not a definite NQ. Nobody really is unless it's just hopeless.
Not up to me. You are right. I hope Swoopes wins the Heisman. He's a good kid.
Well if you are basing it on Vonn Bell, Joshua Dobbs was a much more important recruit.
The running back recruiting situation there baffles me. You've got a favorable depth chart, a guy that's a great recruiter on these prospects in Jay Graham, etc. Other schools are signing two, sometimes three or four backs. I don't get it.
Of course that means they will probably get Jalen Hurd in 2014.
You need a bunch of help there.
Yeah but everybody knew going into NSD they were not getting Kamara/Foster/Adams. I guess losing the kid they just offered to Virginia should be considered.
Damn FSU only had Ten 4/5* recruits?
That's crazy.. We led the nation with 20 4* recruits and one 5* (Tre' White).. Just surprised FSU only got 10
Danielle Hunter, Jamario Rasco, Anthony FREAK Johnson.. DL wrecking crew of 2013.
depends where you look. rivals has us with 2 5*s and 9 4*s. espn has us with 1 5* and 13 4*s.
we took a couple fliers on guys who dont really have positions so they get dinged with a 3star rating. plus weve got some developmental guys like our TE who isnt rated high since hes a blocker and will grow into an OT most likely. it happens. trust me i thought we were going to really limp across the finishline about 3 weeks ago but we finished strong. you go lose 6 coaches in a 40 day period and tell me how you end up.
FSU Ambassador to the masses
Again, it is silly to criticize Texas for not filling their needs at quarterback when they were not attempting to fill any needs at quarterback apart from the QB that they signed very early in the process. It was always destined to be a small class.
Out of curiosity, were you one of the people that rated Gilbert for Rivals?
You add the 2010-2013 classes together for Miami and they should be terrified. Not sure how that team will fair next year but it will have as much filler as any Cane team ever has next year.
This post is stupid for a number of reasons
Mainly the fact that USCw almost always out-recruits FSU every single season
Facts are USCw still sucks, FSUe doesn't offend any Nole fan and Jimbo and company are in a much better position that Lane Kiffin ever will be moving forward
USCw will be terrible next season, struggle to make a bowl game... but I still bet they sign a better class than FSU on paper again, doesn't matter though... it never does
Its why USCw has never beaten FSU, not once... ever!
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.
Wait, what??? It seems like you're suggesting that Oregon has some sort of beneficial relationship with Nike??? What's the connection, and where are you hearing this?
I dont know what your sources are, but it seems to me you should have some actual facts before you indict an institution based upon supposition and innuendo.

Scheduling a terrible USCw squad does nothing for schedule strength so I doubt it, you can't even beat the ACC runner ups who were only the runner ups cause two schools that were better couldn't play in the ACC title game
So really the 4th place ACC team beat USCw down
You also don't have a better class, its simply ranked higher which means close to nothing
USCw will always pull higher rated kids, they compete with nobody out west
Meanwhile FSU has to fight off SEC powers and two in state rivals for kids, much harder to do
Lane quit and ran out west cause he couldn't handle it
This whole post is just failure, I guess you are still mad that I predicted how bad USCw would be this season
And yes, I remember you getting pissed off and telling me how this would be an easy national title for the Trojans
I outed you as a moron on this board a long time ago, yet still you try to get at me with " FSUe " and whatever other failures at humor you can muster up
I never acted like losing to GT meant anything either, Im just using it as proof that USCw sucked and will suck again next year seeing as how your QB of the future can't even salvage a win against middle of the pack ACC teams
Lolz at Barkley playing against FSU gives you a chance, FSU's DL would send that pussy to the hospital by halftime if not sooner
Enjoy going 6-6 next year with 20+ 5 stars on the roster

No, what bothers you is that " USCw " is used by many on boards all over the internet
So you decided to come up with one of your own, and still to this day are the only person I have ever seen use it in regards to FSU
So why would I be upset that one terrible poster on one site does it ? I find it funny that you think something like that would bother me
FSU had an elite defense as well, you just don't understand that and put the blame of an average offense turning it over as the defenses fault for giving up a few scores on the year due to short fields ( which is the reason for a high number of points given up in the UF and Clemson games )
Which is just further proof you are a moron who doesn't understand football is a team sport
FSU's defense was damn good this season and in the same company as LSU and Bama, making it elite.... convincing you they are isn't needed, most people that cover CFB agreed and FSU will send around 7 defenders to the NFL and ranked top 5 in almost every single category that mattered
Like I said, Im not trying to convince you
The people that matter are convinced, lolz at calling it very good but not elite
What is the difference ?
When we look back in 5 years we will know that at least 20+ players went on to the NFL off that defense
It ranked top 5 in nearly every category despite losing two senior all american starters for the whole season before week 2
It ranked #1 in pass defense despite losing an All American 5 star senior CB before the year even started, #3 in rush defense despite losing a 5 star DT and All American DE before the season started, #6 in scoring defense, #2 in total defense ( despite playing almost 100 more plays than Bama's defense.... again, proof that FSU's offense hurt FSU's D whereas Bama's offense helped its defense )
If that isn't your definition of elite then please explain to me what is
