    Seider has been nothing short of awesome for us. Gonna have another RB in the top 3 rounds most likely again next draft and have some of the best depth in the country at the position. The fact Mullen didn’t even really try to retain him is something.

    See I just don't agree with this...the only way you ever justify an ROI on this is if the kid is a Barry Sanders / Adrian Peterson / Derrick Henry type player. Someone you can literally give 25 carries a game to and ride to a championship. The odds of Evans being that, no matter how highly he's rated, are very small. The odds of him being a huge headcase and embarrassing your program are pretty high though.

    Most 5-star backs turn out like TJ Yeldon - nice player, but won't literally carry your team.

    At a place like Florida, he's got that opportunity. They don't have a whole lot at RB iirc. This Linguard kid from Miami better be good.

    Didn’t Mullen move him to like TE coach or something? I obviously wasn’t involved in the discussions but I gotta think Seider had issues with that and it drove him to State College. There’s really no other reason why he would leave the state of Florida. It seemed like a really dumb move by Mullen at the time that backfired and it turns out that was 100% correct.

    Just looked it up he was the only coach retained from the previous staff but yes moved to TE’s

    idk how we didn’t even try to retain him....when we did

    Jack, Jajuan Seider has coached RBs only since 2010 (which encompasses all of his college coaching career) I’m sure the fact Mullen tried to move him to TE had absolutely nothing to do with him promptly leaving for State College. It’s OK to say Mullen made a dumb decision.

    You think you tried to retain your established RB coach when your new head coach moved him to TE coach?

    Lingard id imagine will be 3rd on the depth chart if he gets a waiver. He’ll behind pierce and Davis unless he lights the world on fire in training camp

    but just not following your logic that we let him go with the rest of the staff when that is inaccurate

    He was retained and didn’t get his walking papers like the rest of that shit staff

    what happened after that was obviously dumb

    As Seider, I think I would have been less embarrassed to be let go with the rest of the staff than moved to coach TE's :idk: That's a slap in the face IMO.

    No, if I was I would have done a better job trying to retain him at his current position. That should have been the first tell that I wasn’t involved.

    Are you new to recruiting? I'm honestly asking. The majority of the time they don't come right out and say it because they don't want to ruin the kids future seeing as how we are dealing with minors.

    This isn't a case of just a Wiltfong or Biggins alluding to something. Numerous fans of Georgia (especially), Florida, Ole Miss, Texas A&M, et al. have commented on his "issues." And his "issues" were even addressed on NBC by him and Deion.

    He wouldn't give up a cell phone the night before the state championship game. That was the last straw, apparently. Rusty mentioned it today actually. UGA signed him under the agreement that he had zero chances left.

    I'm guessing it's the typical HS kid bullshit but he couldn't get out of his own way.

    I’m not a PSU admin and PSU admins would not have been in the discussions with Seider about what UF position he wanted to coach. It would actually be UF admin, but I am not that either as I mentioned I would have made a better effort to retain him while coaching his current position.

    The brother thing is an overplayed talking point from TexAgs, his brother hasn't been involved with his recruitment for most of his senior season, didn't even know he was enrolled in TCU.

    Wasn't there more to that story, like he had a family member in the hospital or something to the effect of he needed his phone on him in case of an emergency? Also what kind of Bud Kilmer asshole makes kids give up cell phones these days.

    Evans' issues have more to do with attitude and clashes with authority figures and teammates, not legal problems. The cause for concern would be there were so many incidents down the stretch of last year. We'll see if he takes to structure and accepts help, which he very well may not but it's not like he has a rap sheet either

    Half of the sec east swung and missed with a guy who ended up choosing a former mountain west school. Almost as embarrassing as hyping up a former WF qb to win your team a national championship.

    suspended for a few games after a blowup following their opening lost to Katy. Run ins with coaches and teachers I believe. He sat on the bench after they hit a hail mary to win the state championship in 2018 too. It was bizarre at the time, but kind of a sign of things to come over the next year
