Question: ok settle it... spiller to Clemson?



Answer: Clemson has done a great job. We think Clemson is a strong player with Spiller, but nothing will be settled until he sends in the LOI tomorrow





Question: Spiller update ... any and all info????



Answer: No concrete, I will say his FSU visit did not go as I thought it would





Question: What is your gut feeling on Spiller?



Answer: He will keep me very busy tonight and tomorrow. He will also make the fan in me toss and turn in my sleep tonight





Question: Where do we finish in the rankings if we land Spiller?



Answer: 13-15





Question: will coots pull any last minute surprises?



Answer: The ball is not bouncing their way right now





Question: mick: we waiting on anyone other than spiller?



Answer: This is Trey. Spiller and Sims are all that is left





Question: mick: where does this class ranki w/out spiller and w/spiller?



Answer: w/o 18-21, w/ 13-15





Question: Sounds like Sims didn't have a great FSU visit either.



Answer: We have dug and dug with Sims, but the Sims family handles everything very close to the vest. I said Sunday I would be shocked if he didn't go to FSU, I will downgrade that to "surprised"





Question: Do we keep Sapp?



Answer: YES!





Question: Any surprises tomorrow minus Spiller?



Answer: Tomorrow is NSD anything can and probably will happen





Question: Does the ball ever bounce South Carolina's way?



Answer: It did on their little winning streak





Question: What's with the Rivals' rumors about Sapp changing his mind? Anything to those rumors?



Answer: No some people just will not let things go





Question: Might Sims wait and see what Spiller does and then possibly commit to Clemson?



Answer: No, Spiller will not affect Sims. Sims and his family know where he is going





Question: Who will decommit from the coots tomorrow?



Answer: I would watch Captain Munnerlyn closely





Question: What went wrong with Spiller @ FSU?



Answer: Nothing necessarily went wrong, but if you tracked their weekend, he did not come away sounding as overwhelmed as the kids that committed





Question: How much does Spiller play next season if he signs with us?



Answer: Thats an if question I'd rather answer around lunch tomorrow





Question: Does Clemson REALLY have a shot at anyone left? Will there be the 'Clay' shocker or could we get McIntoshed?



Answer: No indications of a McIntosh, and Clemson is a factor with Sims and Spiller





Question: so in year #2 spurrier still having problems? losing stock must have hurt



Answer: Stockstill was a major factor in their recruiting, and his loss has hurt. There is no way in my opinion Adam Patterson goes to Michigan if Stockstill is at South Carolina





Question: Spiller?



Answer: 10:30 in the morning, Clemson has done everything it needed to do





Question: trey: which former or current tiger rb would you compare cox to?



Answer: Reggie Merriweather





Question: Is Kornblutt on suicide watch?



Answer: Nah





Question: What's the deal with geathers?



Answer: The school did not release his transcripts at the request of the family. He was not able to take any official visits. One of the strangest scenarios I have ever followed.





Question: So, other than the Spiller stuff in the morning, should be an uneventful signing day for the Tigers?



Answer: That is the hope. Uneventful outside of Spiller would be a very good day for Clemson





Question: Is losing Stock hurting the Gamecocks ability to close the deal with recruits this year?



Answer: Yes





Question: Where will the coots class end up ranking?



Answer: 34-37, just a guess





Question: Trey: Why is UF having such an incredible year? Is Meyer that good of a recruiter?



Answer: Yes, and he has a much easier sell in Gainesville





Question: If Sims signs, ultimately where do you see him in 2 years? RB or LB?



Answer: LB





Question: What type of back is Spiller? Compare and contrast his abilities with those of James Davis?



Answer: Davis is the thunder, Spiller is the lightning





Question: How do you like our junior commits so far?



Answer: The junior commits are great and they are just getting started. The momentum is continuing





Question: Chances that Spiller WON'T sign an LOI tomorrow?



Answer: 5%





Question: how good is chambers?



Answer: Sadat Chambers will be the second string cat safety the first day of spring practice, he is Jamaal Fudge





Question: Already 4 commits for next year? How many should we expect by summer?



Answer: as many as 12





Question: Tough question without them on campus, but who do you see on our verbal list that is not even close to being able to contribute (ie lots of potential, but raw)?



Answer: Medlin needs to be coached, Campbell and Alexander will take off in about two years with Blackwell. Ogren will be thrown into the fire sooner, but he will develop nicely under Swinney





Question: Does Tommy finally win 10 in 2006?



Answer: If I made my final prediction today, yes





Question: OK. Enough is enough. Quit beating around the bush and tell us where he is gonna sign so we can all get some sleep,



Answer: LOL! Sleep is overrated





Question: Did Louisville have to sell off any campus property to afford Whitehead?



Answer: No





Question: So Stevie Superior can't close the deal without Stock? If Stevie can't, who can?



Answer: It is difficult to recover losing your RC in December





Question: Would Spiller and Davis ever be in on the same play?



Answer: Possible





Question: Mickey Plyler -- tigernet.com . . . . 9:11:21 PM Then what's Jocby Ford?



Answer: An extremely fast player who will contribute immediately





Question: Is membership to Augusta really worth all this to Spurrier?



Answer: Some ppl would give up their first born for that membership

Answer: No, but you have all the power

Answer: The best NFL prospect Clemson has at corner on campus right now.





Question: More speed than Fudge?



Answer: I am guessing you are talking about Chambers, and he is a little faster than Fudge





Question: Top 10 class for 2007?



Answer: Within reach, 10 wins on the field would help a lot, I know that is an obvious statement, but its true

Question: gonna be in clemson tomorrow watching the faxes coming thru?

Answer: Most likely





Question: Will Rendrick Taylor be a big impact player this year?



Answer: He will be a be bigger factor, but Stuckey and Kelly will get most of the passes





Question: AJ green.... any chance a tiger?



Answer: he is only a sophomore, nobody is out





Question: Getting rid of Hine's would free up at least $100K for Perman.



Answer: from my people, if a change is made, I would look for a young coach who would recruit his rear off





Question: Where do we stand with Junior Hemmingway?



Answer: in the mix, but he may be headed out of state
