    Yes, I should have had them on my list. Cooper would headline it. This class would really benefit from an early Ringo commitment.

    Yes, SEC is paying people to commit to USC these days. Its premature to say on either Sanders or McCoy. People somehow feel secure in defeat, so they rush to it. Odd, I know, but you see it yourself. In fact, here's some comments from a USC mod. As you can see, not even they feel this is settled and seemingly talk as if they're behind. I WANT Clay Helton in their living room. He's a dead man walking and he'll probably act like it, though not intentionally. He is not a liked man in Southern Cal circles. As for Sanders, I don't know if this is a situation where _____ talks. I'd like to think not. If I'm Sanders, I might get a little insulted by people thinking I can be bought and paid for. I do not comprehend Texas sources who keep the mantra of "can't see Georgia or Bama letting him get away." Its as if this isn't even Sanders' choice, but Bama or Georgia's. I hope this stuff keeps up and the SEC shows its arse.

    Here are some of my favorites that I hope we're recruiting for this class . . . Primary target – of course, Zachary Evans. This recruitment is already polluted. But you have to go after him anyway. His types only come around ever so often. Riley Birdwell, OL, Nacogdoches – a rare center prospect, which we need badly. 6'4 315. Vernon Broughton, DL, Cy Ridge – best of the DE class Damieon George, OL, GPNS – mammoth mauler Jaylen Garth, OL, PNG – can be a G or T. Avery Helm, DB, FB Marshall – a tall guy who has speed and great hips and will stick at CB. Ja'Quindon Jackson, DB, Duncanville – one of those you sign and figure it out later. Chad Lindberg, Clear Creek, OL – must have Jaylon Jones, DB, Steele – another tall DB with speed Haynes King, QB, Longview – If we take a second QB in this class, King gets my vote. An Applewhite type with a stronger arm. He is a leader, winner, son of a head coach. Chris Thompson, S, Duncanville – Great size, speed and physicality. Will add to this later.
  5. Actually this is quite common today. We're currently conducting projects in new additions in McKinney, Frisco, Aubrey – all of which have rules that make them have Bermuda turf. This is due to water demand and the fact that Bermuda does not require as much water as St Augustine or Zoysia. In some cases, you're able to do what you want in the back yard, but the place we're working in now (Aubrey), even that is not the case. In fact, there is an "approved" plant list that we must go by when we design/build landscapes in those neighborhoods. HOA's are good in many ways, but they do remove the freedom I would need to be able to live in one. lol

    Yes, I did. But in response to your opening your post with stating his brother was there. You're free to pick him to Florida all you want.

    Bama is still in it, but running third now and Saban's in-home is already spent. Sanders' primary recruiter for Bama is now at Maryland, so there's not an assistant Saban could throw at him who would have any meaningful impact, IMO. Smart still has an in-home with him, so we'll see how it goes.

    To get you back on subject, your post above is the first instance where anyone said his brother is "telling him where to go." You indirectly said that in your previous post when you BEGAN your post by saying his brother goes there. Why else would you do that? And why am I have to explain YOU to YOU? Geezus.

    I'm basing it off the fact that with literally every Sanders update I've read in the last several months, I hardly ever see Florida even mentioned. I've seen it mentioned more on this thread in the last 30 minutes than I've seen it elsewhere since September.
  10. What you won't like – Bermuda goes dormant sooner than our other turfs. It also comes out of dormancy later than other turfs. Why is this a negative? Because weeds can have their way with your lawn in the down time. I would want to get my Bermuda lawn as thick as possible so that this becomes a non-issue. The thicker your turf, the less likely weeds will make their way in. What you will like – Bermuda lawns don't typically suffer from fungus. Bermuda does get his by Chinch bugs in late summer from time to time, but it's recovery is very fast, unlike our other turfs. You were misinformed on the watering. Bermuda is much more drought tolerant than St Augustine or even Zoysia. During July-August, water it during the evenings. Any other times, do morning waterings. You can water Bermuda just like you did with St Augustine, but you just won't need to do it as much. Bermuda likes to dry out between waterings. Bermuda is not shade tolerant. So when your newly planted trees begin growing up, your Bermuda will suffer (the parts around the tree). As a side note, you might inquire as to why Bermuda was mandated. Seems silly since you could do Buffalo grass and get more drought tolerance mileage. You also want to find out what type of Bermuda they are going to use. There are many. "Celebration" Bermuda is the most drought tolerant that I know of. The most common at sod outlets is the hybrid Bermuda Tif 419. Its a straight-blade Bermuda used on many golf course greens because it doesn't mind being cut short. Just ask what type of Bermuda they're using.

    I understand that but I don't see Sanders letting his brother dictate where he goes. This is a UG-UT battle right now. Hats don't mean anything.

    I would imagine he would commit after his trip, if he takes it.

    UF is not a factor
