    Offseason: Players Leaving

    We're at the players leaving part guys. Remember the rules that you can't sway anyone 95 or greater into staying. We'll advance tomorrow evening or ASAP, although I'll be out most of the day tomorrow.

    It looks like everyone can be swayed except for the heisman winner J. Reed. Good luck on your sales pitches.

    Florida players leaving early:

    SO HB B. Wilkinson, 88 overall, seriously, you're like a 6th rounder! (staying)
    SO FS D. Jensen, 91 overall. 6'5" 215 lbs thinks he's going out on top. (staying YES!)
    JR QB J. Reed, 90 overall. Can't sway him since he won the Heisman. Bye bye J. Reed.
    JR WR A. Debose, 93 overall, I gotta talk him into staying! (staying YES!)

    Chad Humphrey: stated that he had too much unaccomplished to leave

    I can't believe Russell Shephard isn't even considering going pro. Wow!

    Damn, my hatred for UF and how lucky you get with Debose coming back and Finley not wanting to make the jump....

    Jheranie Boyd was set to leave, but coach Jello was able to convince him into staying.

    JR SS Dustin Williams was also wanting to leave. Coach Jello spent 2 hours on the phone with Dustin trying to get him to stay, but Williams felt that he had a good shot in the draft and decided to leave after all.

    This frees up 1 scholarship for UNC so they'll have 1 guy to sign during the offseason.

    QB- Z Mettenberger, staying. His injury problems gave Murray a chance to take his job, Mettenberg is still the best back up you will find though.

    We lost 15 guys, 12 of which were 90+ overall.

    Lonnie Pryor is coming back. Took 65 minutes but he just wasnt ready for the NFL. Talked another WR into not transfering, but his name escapes me at the moment.

    David Wilson is trying to go pro. He's a 94 overall so you may want to try and sway him, otherwise who would wear Sweetness' # next season???

    You don't love your players enough Killa. You have zero guys going pro but three guys trying to transfer.

    SS Jason Merriman, 76 overall freshman to MTSU
    MLB Bryant Smith, 81 overall sophomore to MTSU
    TE Kevin Brown, 82 overall sophomore to Arkansas

    MTSU's coaching staff is raiding your roster man. What's up with that???

    I was interested in what Cole mentioned about the Bulldogs so I looked at UF's championship roster and here's what's leaving. (Talk about a mass exodus)

    15 players leaving
    14 seniors
    1 junior
    14 are 90+ overall
    11 are 95+ overall
    5+ are 97+ overall
    3 are 99 overall

    Wow, I'm going to have a big talent drop off for next season. (which I know is making Noles' day right now)

    RB David Oku wanted to go pro, but was convinced to stay.

    LE Rae Sykes also wanted to leave at first, but then was told if he stayed for another year it would increase his draft status.

    I don't get back in town until Sunday afternoon. Anyway to wait to advance? It would be a big blow to lose Wilson.

    If we are in fact going to do a 1 night offseason on Sunday I don't have a problem with this. If we're not then I'd much rather not spending 2 extra days on an already really long process.

    Good point. If we do 1 night offseason tomorrow night it really wouldn't matter if we hold off for me to convince Wilson to stay. But if not go ahead. I do have 3 incoming recruits to add depth to the RB position.
