Agree 100% some of the "Traditionalist" are too over the top.

Is it really gonna effect you that bad if we add some stripes or an orange helmet or something.

As long as the uniform is orange.. whats it matter?

Lol at expecting any coach to pull in three top 30 players in two months recruiting for us. Bama pulled in a total of 3 top 30 players coming off of a national championship last year. It would be damn impressive if he pulls it off, but to expect him to is unreasonable and not fair to judge him on.

Acquiring his main recruiter from USC should make it easier. But, yes absolutely I'm setting the bar high, because if the head coach Jones is promising championships then he has to pull the best recruits here.

I think landing those three (if Tee is hired) is a very real possibility.

So... you're ready to write him off if he doesn't pull all three?

Agreed. I really think it is possible. But it isn't a must or Jones failed situation.

Is tee not confirmed?

Agree... but signing all three of them is not a "must have to show that CBJ and staff can recruit in the SEC"


Now, the Berry Twins and TKjr are must haves.

I think it's a very big test for him and yes pulling those 3 in particular tells me a lot about his abililty to recruit.

No, it's definitely not a must to show his ability to recruit. That's unrealistic. If he doesn't land those guys and you write him off based on that alone, you're not very bright.

No, it's not confirmed yet.

Those are sick as hell. I love that dull paint that they use on the helmets now.

I've been asking for Nike sponsorship for years. This board laughed at me because 90-95% haven't ever talked to an athlete or been an athlete. These players play different when they feel good going out there to play. Anybody remember how we had the black unis versus South Carolina? We came out and started dropping the hammer on them on defense. They were out of the game before they knew it. As long as the unis look good I'm for them. But most weeks we can wear our traditional Orange & White.
