    4* WR from North Gwinnett, commits to...UNC.

    WTF? Why? They have an 80 year old head coach with a sh!t program.

    He has family coaching there. Not that surprising.

    Just a short while ago we would've been excited we were among his finalists. Now we're angry he chose actual family over metaphorical family.

    Sounds to me like CGC is raising the bar around here.

    Disappointing for sure. We’ll see who he signs with in December. We are in 2nd ahead of Ohio State and Michigan.

    Frankly, I am looking at his success at Texas. I am looking at his record at UNC.

    Are you arguing 80 y/o mack brown is better than 50 y/o mack brown? We shall see.

    He is the same age as Saban FYI. They’re both about six months older than Bill Belichick.

    No. Machete is a perpetual complainer. Or he's a troll that likes to rustle feathers. Either way if I havent seen you at the tailgate I assume you're a figment of my imagination.

    We have real problems if an energetic 40-something who is "with it" with the kids and social media and in a school that's in the capital of the South can't out recruit an old fart retread. Not saying that a couple of data points make a trend but the jury is out. We'll see.

    I'm excited about CGC too, but let's not pretend this is new territory. We've been in 2nd place for plenty of big time recruits over the last 10-15 years. Eventually we have to actually close, because the moral victory thing is already old.

    Don't form conclusions and get butthurt after just one case.

    Let's see how it works out next few years. #saveyourbutthurt

    First read that as "old fart retard." After listening to him on some of the commentary this season, not sure which one fits better now.

    Trying to figure out how to describe the problem when CGC got a unc commit to flip to GT for this class. Is that good or bad?

    And will be hilarious when Josh flips to GT in 10 months.

    And his uncle is Dre Bly, who had a heck of an NFL career. That has to hold a lot of sway.

    1. Good luck Josh, every week except when we play you.

    2. We will win, with or without you.

    3. Next recruit up.

    Way to go and give CGC another hashtag to use on his posts.

    Do you reckon anything machete posted in this thread, or his other butthurt thread about this same exact subject, or many of his other butthurt threads in the past, warrants any consideration for not being stupid?
