Lots of players in the active recruiting phase are talking to schools' HC's and recruiting coordinators this time of year and in the coming months...  how do you interpret what they say?  Do you turn it into what you want to hear?  Or do you understand there is certain courtesy protocol and dialog in place to keep the plan B,C,D and E and tuition-payer guys engaged and excited? 

RJM just posted the following comment in another thread and I think it is essential to understand as lesson #1 in Recruiter Speak 101...

... “He will have an opportunity win a position” is not love. It’s the least any coach will tell any player.  ...

Other thoughts, lessons, observations?  What other common phrases are thrown out there and what is behind them?
