    Don Loses Another

    Don just lost another 4* recruit Rique Stevenson

    Don?s recruiting will be interesting.

    While Yes the East is easier, he?s going to have to develop into a better recruiter if he is going succeed at FL with Richt and now Taggert in the state to go along with Kirby and Urban plucking a few.

    Don is a good coach and has a high floor at Florida at about 8 wins once he gets his culture installed, but, in order to win the East or compete for a natty, Don will have to overcome his socially awkward, arrogant personality

    It could be something more going on like they didn't like the way Florida treated the previous coach and the high number of fans who are not happy with new coaches. They brought it all on them selves. Their shit does stink and why would a 4 or 5 star want to go there when they could go to FSU, GA, Bama or Miami?

    Looks like it’s about to get tougher with Taggart going to FSU.

    I guess Don thought his winning personality would just turn that program around in no time. He took over a Florida program in a nose dive. He's got to change the culture and make sure he keeps Foley and Spurrier happy too. It's gonna be a tall order to fill and I really don't see him getting it done in the time frame fans and boosters expect.

    Don's laziness and hard-headed universal recruiting pitch will cancel that advantage out. The type of athletes who are attracted to name and prestige alone don't want to hear that they'll have to earn their spot just like everyone else.

    my question was rhetorical of course. As a MSU fan, I have seen Dan's "relentless effort" on the recruiting trail (as well as Hevesy's eff ups) up close. I think it's going to be a big problem for him at Florida. And they aren't going to give him 9 years to figure it out like we did.

    I get that Florida has financial resources but this idea that the city of Gainesville is some sort of magical city that attracts people is silly. It is your typical town of 130k. Not terrible but not great. Big enough to have traffic and most chains but not eclectic enough to offer much that is unique. It is about as far away from the beach as you can get while being located in the state of Florida.

    I?m sure his ?you are going to have to work hard to play over the upperclassmen ahead of you, even if you are the better player? is doing wonders for the guys they have committed.

    The more I think about everything and the further along we get without Don, the better and better off we are looking.
