And that is EXACTLY why we have to EXPAND the recruiting base out of S. Florida - too big of a talent drain now - even UM can't do what they did "back in the day"! Even with the crap they allowed (or did) to get recruits down there before Shannon. Ask ANY recruit to choose between Alabama and Sabon  and the SEC or FAU and Carl Pelini and the SunBelt - no contest, we lose 999 out of 1000 times!

Let's use S. Florida and the Stadium and the Campus to draw kid's from ACROSS the country to play "football in paradise". Either we beleive that slogan and use it or we don't!

And no B.S. that is costs more to give a scholorship to a kid from out of state. True we don't bring in as much cash for that "out-of-state" tuition "bump" but the actual cost of the education and room and board is the same as for any kid living on campus from even Boca!

NO MORE EXCUSES or REASONS we can't bring in better players AND students - those days HAD BETTER BE PAST!

Out of state kids are out of state tuition…they DO cost more. We are upping salaries across the board, but until we start winning and the money flows, we're going to be on a budget.

Schools like Alabama, Michigan, Ohio State, USC all recruit nationally.  They are able to do so because they are rich in resources provided to them by alumni.

If you would like Coach Pelini to recruit nationally then donate a pilot, private plane, hotel fares and food expenses.  Until then, we will have to take Alabama's seconds.  Just how it is, need to be realistic.

Recruiting is one thing, but I want to see these new guys COACH!  Pelini turned Nebraska's defense from 4th worst in the country to top 10 IN ONE YEAR!!!  What?  They have an influx of 5-star guys?  Or did he actually teach and develop his players.  Did Greg Mattison at Michigan (new D-Coordinator) take Michigan from one of the worst in the country to top 10 by getting new and better players???  No, he did so with the SAME players that were terrible the year before.

Guys this can be turned around quick…with the players on our roster.  Did Arkansas State get a huge influx of talent this year????  Or did they get TAUGHT and COACHED how to play football and win?

I for one would be very happy with Alabama's sloppy seconds as far as recruiting goes.

The orlando idea is great, hopefully he's onto that already.

FAU - We got Bowls!

IF we got Alabama's seconds, the past few years we have gotten FIU's thirds. I agree Coaching and ATTITUDE matter a lot.
And I know the admissions brochures list different tuitions for in-state and out-of-state students but having Coached 38 players (my own family included) whom went on to play Collegiate ball at all levels (D1, DII, NAIA), there are LOTS of ways around financial issues (grants, other scholorships, etc.) to  totally "defray" the cost of attending even the most expensive of private colleges. And these options INCLUDED reducing tuition and housing costs!

Bottom line we HAVE TO stop making excuses for poor recruiting or for not recruiting more regionally if not nationally and JUST GET IT DONE - unless we like last place and 5,000 in the stadium!

Agreed, I was recruited to play football up north at a d2 school, and decided against it cause of the weather…..if a team 5 minutes from the beach in South Florida would have offered me the same offer I would have been there in a heartbeat!
