    Typical BBN giving more love to potentional recruits than the guys actually wearing the UK jersey. Does anyone else find it weird how much BBN obsesses over 16 and 17yr old boys? I do.

    And to throw Harrow and Wiltjer under the bus already is just funny. Three weeks ago these guys were “lottery picks”, now they wouldn’t even be starting on next years (potential) team? Wow…

    #5-7-Not only do we have the good fortune to get your opinions, but we also get an early prediction on next week’s game. We are not worthy. Truly.

    UF already has two top 10 recruits and Randle and Parker have already visited UF. Now they are in on Johnson. Could the top two recruiting teams in 2013 be UK and UF?
