Well I guess that answers the question of if there was any bad blood between CP and RH earlier this year.

Nice to see the road to STA is still open!

Don't expect this year's class to be anything like last year's. We can only dole out like 16 scholarships this recruiting cycle per NCAA rules so we'll have much smaller class that will not be as talented

LawOwl..why only 16?† Just curious.† Even with attrition, i.e. Hankerson and Gold leaving?

I belive the number is 18 before Gold and Hankerson.  I would bet we sign 22 to next years class when everything is said and done.

Teambeer is the most knowledgeable FAU sports fan I know, way smarter than me.

I understand the lower number, I just don't understand the lower talent side of the argument. Shouldn't we be MORE picky with fewer scholarships, leading to better talent overall?

We're almost to our max of scholarship players allowed on an FBS roster

It ain't over till it's over. I have a feeling this will be one of those years that we are the bad guy by removing our offer. If a higher quality or more desirable player commits, we won't let him walk away.

LINEMEN Coaches, Linemen - WE NEED TO SIGN 10 BIG STRONG MEN PER YEAR, GAMES ARE WON AT THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE. A great qb or rb is dead meat without a line to run block and protect (ask Alfred!). While a mediocre rb can run 100+ yards a game behind a great line

Judging by this, Charles has some great potential for post game quotes:

"Coach Partridge, heís a family man. A family man will do anything for his family. He will not let anything happen to his family. Thatís something I live by. The football team is his family and heís going to do the best for them and make sure nothing happens to them. Like me at my school, thatís like blocking. Iím a family man, so I donít want anybody touching my quarterback. I have to protect him on that field. Thatís why I chose FAU.Ē

Love it!
