What should happen to the late commitments

Postby jmskjrgator » Mon Feb 04, 2013 6:16 pm

Regardless of how good they are they need to be put in
the very back of the line for earning playing time. May the
coaches make them suffer some for what they caused
the coaches and fans to go through waiting on their
commitment.

A large percentage of this group think they are much
better than they actually are.

Plus..... They are far from being a real devoted gator.

They better be glad I'm not the coach when they wait
until the last day. They don't realize the coach will make
decisions for the next four years. It's just stupid to wait
this long.

Boy... I'm glad I got that out of my system.

Yeah Ox. Flush that.

However, late commits merely concerned themselves with what as appropriately their solo self-interest. Now that they've embraced
Gator-Nationhood, we should embrace them... not confound them.
They still can soon bring Gator-talent winning contributions. :cool:

They should be thankful they got the offer from UF. And all of
this waiting & worrying is NOT necessary.

That is probably what coaches hate the most about coaching in
college instead the pros.

They are the self-centered ones and sometimes that means they
are not real team players.

Take the orange and blue glasses off. These kids have been getting harassed non-stop for at least the past year from coaches and reporters all over the country. They have everyone and their brother trying to persuade them to go to their school of choice. Give them a break and let them wait as long as they can to make what will be one of the most important decisions of their life. Embrace the ones that choose to be Gators and wish the others the best of luck...except when they line up against us!

Shoot if I were talented enough to be getting offers from everywhere I'd be on a site seeing junket. After I figured out where I was going, I'd express interest in the University of Hawaii, University of Alaska, Brigham Young, and maybe throw in UNLV.

But 'd finish up early so I didn't lose my spot.

Seriously, some of these kids/about to be men have got to be so confused it feels like their head is going to come off.

Considering the once-in-lifetime spotlight they get by delaying
to announce "center-stage" at a televised all-star game, it's
probly seems a perk worth delaying for. ??

Yes and when they wait until the last second, you cannot
believe they are a diehard gator fan.

You have to wonder how many had a school they loved and
would commit to on the last minute only to find out the offer
of a scholly is no longer available. At some point the coaches
will give the scholly to someone else.

UF is almost at the point where they will be turning down
these slow decision guys. Better commit early if you want
to be a gator.

I like Champ's "horses are in the barn" theory that he probably picked up at Texass.

I fully recognize the truth you're positing. But, our coaches at all
times hold the "ace-in-the-hole". The more undoubting early
Gator commits, the better.

But variety is a spice. And aren't the guys who "brave" a 'holdout'
usually at the top in recruit ranking and make top contributions
at the school of their choice ?

The negative risk cuts both ways. Say we get early 'commits' at RB
by K.Taylor and Lane. We have space for 2 more RB commits. A
high ranked RB is delay considering UF. Then we luck out and get
Derrick Henry as a 3rd RB commit, still leaving room for that
delaying RB. How much better has he taken care of his love to play
1st-string CFB by being a big-picture thinker.? And he chooses a
different school and "saves" his college career & possibly NFL
$ millions.

Also a 6th-best RB commits early and fills our RB positions; then
the #2 RB wants to come to UF. We can take him only by sacrificing
an LB or DE choice. It is a "coach/recruit-savvy" balancing process.

Let's make it very clear to the holdouts we really want that if the come, they will run steps every day, clean up after the rest of the team, and get playing time only when every other recruit has seen the field.

Just because you don't find out where they're going until NSD doesn't necessarily mean the coaches haven't known for weeks.

I say take it one step further... if a kid we are after visits another school, we make him clean the stadium on Sunday morning after the game of his official visit. That'll show 'em.

Why not make it known that UF is an "early-commit-only" school and
commit now or go to Bama, UGa, Auburn, USCe, etc. = UF is not so
desperate as to be strung along. And, of course, watch our recruit
class rating plummet. I don't understand this thread and there's no
decoder ring. :embarrassed:

They should have an early signing period like they do for basketball.

Good college coaches go to the NFL often. Having to recruit
is one of the main reasons they leave. I imagine the holdouts
play a big part in that.
