First off though-I know we were making a push for Dee Liner the Aub commit well, I just read where he just tweeted that "I just got off the phone with my new coach & everything is great". So Gus has wasted no time coming in & shoring up these big time commits they have. The article didn't say anything about Lawson but I'm quite sure he's already been on the phone with him too so, I don't really see us being a player any more with Aub bringing Gus back on board.If Lawson still makes it for an OV then, well crazier things have happened but these are top 10 kid's that has been committed to Aub & didn't commit even with their crappy season. So any of those Aub. guy's that were going soft on their commits will probably become strong again with Malzone coming back. Man it would be sweet to land Lawson but it sure will be a lo tougher now with Aub going with a guy who can per claim he was the right hand man in Aub.'s NC & he was.
But what could give us some potential probs on the trail-Seems Butch Davis is shoring up the deal right now with FIU to be their new coach. So us old timers know Butch & we also know the man can recruit no doubt about it. This is another potential headache for us right now with these sanctions still pending but Butch knows the lay of the land & he's a lot closer to our home town kid's than others. Man I hated to hear that name when I saw it but, when we get these sanctions out of the way-throw a couple good seasons back to back then, shouldn't be that much of a problem but he could cause some before know & then.
CANE 4 LIFE & BEYOND !! I BLEED ORANGE & LIVE GREEN !!!!
Butch might get 1 or 2..... FIU isn't going to out do UM even with Saban....
I like Butch... And I'm happy for him.. But FIU isn't goin to out recruit UM, no matter who the coach is CHAMP.. Too much tradition at THE U.
Sad Sad times at The U when people are worried about who FIU hires and how it affects our recruiting lol
Butch will not out recruit Golden. I am calling it now.
He can develop talent, every recruit he got was not the most coveted... He just got an eye for talent
The Auburn commits are long long shots...no one should be disapointed if we don't land them
If and i mean if Butch goes to FIU im the least bit concerned. You know he will leave for bigger and better jobs in a year or two....
Champ I love you like a brother, but Butch Davis is never in a zillion years going to take the likes of TH, Duke, Deon, TM, Chick...away from us! We remember him, but these kids were just being born when he was coaching here, also he left, the lasting impression that kids have of his players is; Coker holding the crystal, not Butch. FIU has a long, long, long way to get to USF status let alone the big three! It's not just you, there is this very un-realistic belief that Butch will coach here again. The man has three train wrecks under his belt; 1. The way he left UM, no AD in their right mind would even entertain the idea, especially with a sea of capable candidates out there.
2. Cleveland Browns: need I say more?
3. UNC: need I say more?
The only way Butch would be a threat to us is, if he were at UF or FSU! So guys, please stop with this BD nonsense, he is not in the same league as JJ, Erickson or Schnelly! Stay classy ;)
Not so much the school bro but, Butch has done this for a long time bud 7 the man can recruit no doubt about it. I'm no way suggesting he's gonna take over S.FL but the man has an eye for talent & all I was saying is-he could possibly be another headache for us right now because of what's going on here. I know all AG has to do is hit on this class 1 way or the other, we come out next year & get back to the ACC game & we will def. have our 305 kid's looking at the "U" as the school again. But in the mean time-although Butch may not pull them, recruits who send out soft vibes, you can better believe he will be on them. Just basically talking immediate headache-not long term. Hec I was still in hopes that he would take a pos. job here & help the CANES again -LOL Looks like that's shot.
Butch has an eye for talent, no debating that but it is still FIU.... top kids aren't going to go there over UM... FIU could have Jimmy Johnson and the kids would still pick UM over FIU....
the 2 and 3 star guys in south florida will go there thats it so a guy like chestnut or woodley who loves us would say ill go to FIU when they feel forgotten but it wont affect us
We all know even if butch took that job it's just a springboard into a higher profile gig.
