08:27 AM ET 06.29 | Getting to the nerves of the nation's top prospects, the blue-chippers among blue-chippers, might be as easy as adding Nick Saban to the mix. Rivals.com polled about 80 blue-chip high school football recruits about a variety of college football and recruiting issues during last weekend's Rivals100 Five-Star Challenge in Atlanta. The prospects were asked to name the most intimidating of all the head coaches who had spoken with them. Saban, the head coach of the reigning national champions, was mentioned by 30 players. No other coach received more than five votes. "He keeps it straight up," one prospect said. "[There are] not too many games and no smiles with him. It's all business."

"Straight up"..."Not too many games and no smiles with him"

Very nice...

But do the bagmen and/or hookers smile or play games?

Bag men do not smile....draws attention away from the cash. Hookers DO smile...they are working for tips.

Yep. UF had the bulls-eye for a while, and I remember beeeaatching about all the garbage tossed at us. Comes with the territory.

When people quit talking about you, though (which is UF's unfortunate current situation), you'll know you suxes.

Joe is not a troll, he is one very fine gentleman with some opinions, like everyone else, Sir.

That really sucks. When you are scheduled and you know you have very little chance of winning and then they crow about how they beat you that year.
