I heard on the radio that there are 21 seniors on the UF team, and that most of the squad was recruited by Zook. Granted, Zook couldn't get it done, but can Meyer do it again with his own recruits, or will he end up like Larry Coker, or John Gruden, to name a few? Just curious.:confused: BTW, Congratulations Gators, you earned that victory Monday night. :peace:

We'll find out soon enough. He is a good recruiter so there shouldnt be a drop off in talent.

It's always a possibility, but seeing the way he recruits I'm not too worried.

Ummm I would actually say that Urban Meyer is just as good if not better than Zook at recruiting. Meyer is also a way better coach than Zook.
These are just a few of the recruits who have alread made an impact on the Gators already! All by Meyer

Percy Harvin
Tim Tebow
Brandon Spikes
Jarred Fayson
Riley Cooper
Ronnie Wilson
Reggie Nelson
Ryan Smith


Meyer did it with players that also don't fit his system and made alot of the players alot better than they were before he got there.

No one said Meyer wasnt a great recruiter. But how did he recruit Reggie Nelson? Nelson is a junior isnt he?

:lol: That idea is laughable IMO. The way he adapted his system to fit the talent he had says even more about his coaching talent for me. As good of a recruiter as Zook was I think Meyer is even better.

Meyer's a hell of a recruiter. So why worry? And who did Martz coach in college?

I don't think Martz or Gruden were head coaches in college football, they just fit the same mold as asked in the question, they took over a team and drove it into the ground.:dolphins:

He meant because Martz and Gruden had success on some level with teams who were filled with another coaches players. Think Dave Wannstedt his first two years in Miami. Sure wer were a playoff team, but only because Jimmy's players hadn't been filtered out yet.
