I did NOT see this one coming!

No, he literally said like two days ago that we were still #1.

UT told him that he'd be a receiver, so he dropped them. Hence Arizona being on the list. The rest isn't surprising.

When I walked in this morning and saw the flag was at half mast I thought, "Alright, another bureaucrat ate it." but then I saw it was Li'l Sebastian. Half mast is too high. Show some damn respect.

Pay no mind to Beth Mowins, nobody else ever has.

I hate lists, and hate changing lists, I like Birm telling me where he thinks these kids will go, and I like announcement ceremonies where they pick the Buckeye hat.

Or just don't follow recruits and only follow coaching staff/school employees.

Or just follow your friends and other accounts that entertain you. That's what I do, and I absolutely love Twitter.

The whole "Oh Twitter is a dumb fad" thing has been played out since 2010. It's here to stay, and it's a hell of a lot better than Facebook.

I don't think nor did I say it was a dumb fad, and no part of me believes it's going anywhere. I just don't care for social media, I have a Facebook that I'm on once a month maybe. It's just my opinion, and you're welcome to like Twitter all you want. I'd just say that you're response sounds preachy and misses the point of what I was saying.

I enjoy this description of Twitter that I heard, "the social network for antisocial people"

Ryan Clark is a Miami guy. There is no indication that the lead has changed.

I know people are going to trash him for changing his list again but when a school tells you that they want you to play another position, it makes sense to change your list.

I don't think anyone will or should trash him for changing his list, I'd be more surprised if his list didn't change again than if it did.

70% chance he won't play in Florida (his words, not mine), looks like it's down to 25%.

He's either going to be a Buckeye or a Tiger and I'd bet he's all OSU.

GO BUCKS!

List is definitely not in order. These are the schools that have always been in it with Arizona making a push lately. He just eliminated LSU, Tennessee and another school that I cant recall at this moment.

FWIW, Kurelic says the Buckeyes lead for Gibson:

He is not going to Miami. He has said repeatedly that he wants to get out of Florida. 

I don't see him going to Arizona, I just don't. 

This will be a race between Auburn and the Bucks. At this point, I'd give the Bucks a 70% chance. Don't be surprised if he commits after the VTech game. That game is going to be huge!

As TheBadOwl mentioned, OSU is still his #1.

The big change to note in that list is that Tennessee's gone, that is the headline news. As for the rest of the list, just my personal opinion/no insight:
1) Canes are a plausible fall-back plan, but haven't ever taken advantage of the hometown effect (and IMO likely won't ever, unless they somehow manage a fantastic season and start building up some hype, which actually could happen -- very average schedule means they could win 9 or 10 this year). Hasn't ever seemed like he's had that close a relationship with their coaching staff, though. As BayArea mentioned, he's said a few times that he'd like to go to college outside of Florida.
2) Most Auburn recruiting writers are saying Auburn is no longer heavily pursuing Gibson (take that FWIW), or at least they weren't prior to Deondre Francois' commitment to FSU (when he was still considering Auburn). They may have tried to ramp things back up with Gibson since, I'm not sure.
3) Arizona to me screams of needing another hat on the table

This is good for us I think

Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself, do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate it.

Hopefully he doesn't mind playing in front of this crowd:

As much as Gibson cares about fan bases, can probably scratch off Miami.

But it's Da U.  They have a ESPN 30 for 30 and everything.

And a really entertaining 30 for 30 at that. The part where Irving says something along the lines of "If you want us to stop dancing, come make us" sums up that whole era for me.

Ya the U 30 for 30 was great. They have fallen very far.

I agree, the three best 30 for 30 films were "Pony Exce$$," "The U," and "The Best that Never Was."

Those were my 3 favorites as well. Youngstown boys would probably be next.

Marcus Dupree, good call there, that's one of those guys I would have liked to see have a real shot with a body that didn't quit on him.

Any guesses on how much more his list will change before the season starts?
