Some quick thoughts on the tragedy this weekend at Auburn. Really just a sad event that folks need to drop their fandom at the door and take it for what it really is, an awful event.
Then we get into a little recruiting talk. Florida State has blown up their recruiting budget and that's a good thing. That means more evals, more contacts, more visits, more materials and the like and that helps get more talent on to campus. It is measure of re-investment that should help pay itself back in the way of wins.
In keeping with the recruiting ordeal we have Brady Hoke waxing all philosophical like on the influence of the media and recruiting services. I take a pretty hard line here, not just because I'm covering more recruiting but because what coach is really saying is that fans love the recruiting sites and they bother him by paying so much attention his recruits' stars. If a head football coach is letting stars do the picking for him then he's already lost, plain and simple.
