Florida Gators coaches live in murky recruiting gray area during evaluation period

GAINESVILLE -- So, UF assistant coach Steve Addazio CAN'T answer one simple question about recruiting strategies because he says it violates rules set out by the NCAA. This happened a few days ago when I wanted one question answered during a conference call. However, UF assistant Stan Drayton CAN do a two-part series with Rivals.com.

Is UF breaking the rules here, or does UF just not know the rules? Actually neither is true. Coaches know the rules so well they know ways to skirt the rules without breaking them. Giving away recruiting strategies to the Miami Herald would just be foolish. Coaches give information to recruiting websites regularly, though. Recruiting websites are one of the ways coaches can bypass the NCAA's rules to communicate and recruit kids surreptitiously during this evaluation period.

Drayton, who's back at UF after brief stints at Tennessee and Syracuse, recently told Rivals.com that Florida plans to remain a player on the national recruiting scene. Once just a regional recruiting power, UF is now pulling in major recruits from the Northeast, the Midwest, Texas and California. Incoming freshman Ronald Powell of Southern California is nation's best high school player, according to Rivals.

Drayton per Rivals: "We understand that some of the best talent in the country is right here in our backyard. I think we are able to compliment what we get instate with what we are able to get out-of-state, but at the end of the day when you look at our roster, you're going to continue to see a whole bunch of guys from the state of Florida playing for the Gators.

"The way we balance it out is that our goal is to bring in the best student-athlete in the country to the University of Florida and we believe that the University of Florida deserves that. It's not that we are turning our backs on anyone. For us, it's just a matter of finding out who are the best student-athletes in the country and do we have a chance of getting them?

"We're always going to look to Florida first to fill our needs and then expand outward from there."

Wahhhhhhh...you troll our boards....wahhhhhhh....so what if OGV spends his life trolling your boards spewing hate against anything remotely associated with the great University of Florida. He's funny.

Hooks, speak up!

How many "at bats" for Turd Nation to win their FIRST conference championship in the SEC? On the 59th try, that's right I said 59 tries before they connected with the ball. And to think any of these jabrones have the gall to call out someone else on winning conference championships. With that batting average you would get kicked off the girls softball team. "But we got a cement tomb called the Swamp and a grossly overpaid coach and 5 star palyer"...BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Peculiar, coming from a troll who has never won a conference championship game, never even been to one.

Overpaid coach? Lmao. U ain't winning nothing with food stamp wahhhhndy

We've won plenty of conference championships punk, but we consider that crap to be window dressing for the NC ring we sport on EVERY finger. You wouldn't understand that though, because it's a Cane thing. You fools just keep on sending in your money to Preacher Urbie, the biggest scam artist since ol' Reverend Baker. Just think how many more cheese grits you could be buying if you didn't throw it down the drain.

We've won plenty of conference championships

Lmgdao ... No U haven't won ANY conference championships.

Did anyone doubt that this hapless troll would drag that shameful big east drivel in here?

Stayin on THE TOPIC troll, where were the conference championship games played for those prestigious Big Yeast Conference Championships?

"Peculiar, coming from a troll who has never won a conference championship game, never even been to one.". What part of that did U fail to comprehend?

U should stay in moms basement with the Big East dude. That conference makes the sorry ACC (2-11 in BCS bowls) look impressive.

So try to answer the QUESTION? How many conference championship games have U played in or won? Lemme help U limping has-been. ZERO!

Lmgdao ... No U haven't won ANY conference championships.

9 conference championships between 1991-2003 you complete moron.

PS - you can't win a conference championship GAME if the conference doesn't have one ignoramous. That'd be the equivalent of me saying Turds haven't won a single ACC game, even if you couldn't possibly because you haven't played in one.

I think you have too much algae in your nostrils Turd...everything out of your snout is deranged.

*0-58 out of the box
*8 for 88 for a whopping 10% success rate
*3 NC's
*more $$ than any other school and that's all you could buy?

If I was you I'd be embarrassed to show my leather on this sight.

and again...U stepped right in the trap cane fool. Do you DARE mention the words "Big East"? Lmao! Of course U don't. U danced around it like your light in the pants defense would.

This aint the 80's doooooshbag. U dominate NOTHING, not even Clemson. U have NO LEGITIMATE conference titles and NO conference title game appearances. U HAVE NO CONFERENCE TITLES.

U played soft schedules all through your relevant years. Now that U play in a mildly competitive conference U are straight DOOR MATS.

It's very easy to get you to step in your own shyt U dumbassss

and again...you continue to show what a collosal idiot you are. 9 conference championships fool. In your feeble mind you think the SEC is the only conference in the country, right? How about this dooooshbag...are none of Ohio St., Michigan, Penn State conference championships legit? How about USC in the PAC 10? Do their NC's not count either? Only yours? You incredibile imbecile. You're like talking to a homeless bum on the street. Go beat Vandy or FIU or someone tough like Charleston Southern, go beat your chest with other rednecks in that forsaken shyt hole swamp, cool down with some Cpt. Morgans and a couple of bong hits with your "student athletes", and then stumble into Waffle House for some cheese grits before you repeat the cycle again, and again, and again.

All of those titles count


Keep living in the past troll

seems to me you're the one living in the past doosh. You're the defending champion of your mind. How many title games have you played in during the current decade? How about UM?



The big east is a joke Miami.

We know you play with yourself...we know you talk to yourself...

9-4 again

sorry scUM, u ain't shyt no more

Ironic, isn't it, that Turds who rue the past, live in the past?

I checked Web MD for your symptoms, and it's diagnosis for you said...

22-17 under Marble Mouf

Donna could care less?

Ur Srewed

everyone laughs at U

nobody repects U

U are irrelevant

Ur pretty good at name calling for an old guy. How about winning that crap conference U play in.

Your program came crashing down just like the upper deck did in your mockumentary

Loved your documentary. What's that? You don't have a documentary?


Nobody cares or respects you country club Turds. Keep living in your fantasy world. EVERYONE hates you and laughs at your continued idiocy.

But hey, those Lady Turd Lacrosse players and your #1 fishin' team are the bomb (tee hee hee hee...)

UM is a lock to extend its NCAA record for consecutive regional appearances to 38 seasons when the 64-team field is announced later this month.
Incredible...yet ANOTHER NCAA record by the Canes. Truly, the greatest dynasty of all time.
