Interview with DE recruit Tyquan Lewis highlights the show. Also, our staff explains what they know about Urban Meyer's recruiting cornucopia known as Friday Night Lights.
I'm getting "Error 404 file not found" when I try to listen to the MP3. Anyone else?
No good on mp3. wma works well
Your link has been corrupted by a no playoff rant.
Sorry about the mp3 file not working properly. We're working on rectifying the problem.
Problem has been solved. The mp3 is working now. Sorry for the delay.
Not happy to hear that they still don't know what the hell is going on with FNL? Why can't they find out about it? Someone call Urban Meyer for heaven's sake!!!! If it's going to be a major success for Urban Meyer, someone had better find out about it.
Because Taco didn't even start for his own high school team. Farrell said that he was not impressed with him at the last camp. Said he was a great athlete for his size but has very bad technique.

For crying out loud, what time is this thing(FNL) gonna start next week?
Found this info on FNL (Sorry if already posted)
Friday Night Lights at OSU
Public Event · By Block "O".
Friday, July 27, 2012. 6:30pm until 10:00pm in EDT.
The inaugural OSU Friday Night Lights will be held July 27th. One of the few publicly open football events, FNL will feature many of the top recruits across the country. It was a huge deal when Urban Meyer was at Florida, and we want to help raise the energy (and show off some of our traditions) in the stadium during the first ever OSU FNL. Many students are away for the summer, so it would be awesome to get as many people to this event as possible! It's football and a new tradition in July, what's not to like?
It is free and open to the public. Our section has yet to be determined, so we'll keep everyone up to date on here and @osublocko
"The brainchild of Meyer and his inaugural staff at Florida in 2005, Friday Night Lights, or FNL as it's known, is a one-night summer camp showcasing high school players from around the country.
Typically occurring on the third or fourth Friday in July, it's positioned as one of the last camps on recruits' summer schedules, maximizing the number of prospects that are able to attend the event.
Though the first edition of FNL was an unqualified success (future Gator legend Tim Tebow would bond with Jarred Fayson at FNL '05), the event would go on to grow to the point where hundreds of recruits, many of them elite, would pay their own way to Gainesville to show off their skills under the lights, with hip-hop rocking the stadium and team highlights rolling on the scoreboard video screen (with the occasional troll technique, like flashing the Florida-Florida State score from the previous season, which would not work so well lately).
In 2007, Friday Night Lights saw 42 rivals.com four-star or better players attend and two years later, an astounding six of Rivals' 17 five-star recruits -- and 20 of the services top 100 players -- would make the trip to Gainesville to compete.
The electric atmosphere often leads to recruits deciding to stick around an extra day or two to get to know the staff and school a little better. And as we're quickly finding out, if you give Urban Meyer some quality one-on-one time with a recruit, good things tend to happen."

So let me get this right, If I'm a recruit, my choices are 1 attend friday night lights with the coaching staff, and some crazy buckeyes, or 2 go to barbeque with the fat man in blue for some soggy hot dogs, and some chips, I say I have to go with choice no.1
If you guys have any questions about FNL as it existed at Florida under Urban Meyer, I can do my best to answer them. I've been to a handful of them in Gainesville.
