The biggest indicator of problems for FSU is actually having to recruit Tennessee. In Bowden's heyday the team was built predominantly with Florida players. Now he's got not only UF and UM to contend with but Ga., Bama, Auburn (which has always recruited NW Florida well) and Clemson are all taking FL players. Norvell better focus on Florida if he's going to be successful. This smacks of desperation.
Let's not forget Lane Kiffin's reach into FL either

Poach and Coach:
That's exactly what they Paid Johnson $$$ to do. Part of the business. FSU has good facilities and Tallahassee is a decent progressive town in a good location close to the beach.

Don’t get the hate on here for FSU.

A strong FSU helps us slot more than hurts us due to them recruiting heavily against UF and not really against us.

Plus they are in another conference and helps weaken Clemson when they are strong which actually does recruit against us.
How does me hating them less change any of that?

I would say since their new coach was already recruiting them hard, so he is just going for low hanging fruit.
