CFB Insider: Is Feleipe Franks an NFL QB? Will McElwain return to SEC? Better job: Arkansas or Mizzou?
McElwain wasn't (and isn't) ready for prime time. He failed to inspire the team and did not have a staff that could manage players off the field. Examples - players who were paying for their own strength and conditioning after years of preventable injury attrition and disciplinary issues that kept many key players off of the field in 2017. At Alabama, Saban and his staff were much stronger in managing the noise - just seemed that Coach Mac was in waaaaaaayyyy over his head. Wish him well, but don't want him coaching our team.
"CBS Sports updated its weekly rankings of all 130 SEC teams". I had no idea that the SEC had 130 teams.
It saddens me that this young man felt he needed to apologize for missing a kick. No team should pin their win or loss on one play or worse, one player. Alabama as a team did not execute at key points throughout the game, including the kicking game. I hope his teammates read this and stand behind him as a team. It was a tough loss but should not be solely on the shoulders of this man.
Best to you, Lucas.
Don’t see him at FSU just based on him being a Gator. But wish him the very best.
"the game will also mark the first night game against a Power 5 opponent for the Gators this season" LSU?
Wow, dude. You just ascended to platinum level d!ckhead. I don’t care about the football crap you spout but your comment here is naive and grossly inappropriate.
Good Lord. The man has played and coached college football for years and played sports throughout his teens. He had every reason to cut loose. Mrs. Smart, let him have this - he earned it.

Literally took one for the team. Glad she is OK.
That escalated quickly.
How is Mike White on the "hot seat?" I get that this season has started horribly, but nothing about 4 seasons remotely suggests that he is a poor enough coach to consider firing. What am I missing here?
He did, but not after only two years at Florida. Even his third year was a four loss season. My point is that Mullen (at Florida) hasn't yet earned credibility against Georgia, but two ten win seasons (after a dismal four-win 2017) suggests that it is on the horizon. Corch - congrats on the Dawgs wrapping up the SEC East. I sincerely hope UGA brings home the title this year.
Spurrier was repeatedly bashed for his style and his words. He repeatedly ran it up on teams (82-6 over CMU one year and even spitefully dropped 50 on UGA.) Free Shoes University and Can't Spell Citrus without UT are classics. You may call any coach a name and throw scores in the faces of your rivals but it doesn't change the fact that Mullen is doing a great job.
Mullen deserves some grief for his words, just as Spurrier did. But my Wal-Mart psychology degree tells me that the braggadocio was much more about instilling confidence (even arrogance) to get the players to buy in. For example, he said prior the first Orange and Blue game that our receivers were "relieved" to have scored a touchdown when they needed to be angry and more determined when they didn't. That was MacElwain's legacy. A football player may think that if the coach is puffing up, he must think we can do it. Mullen is hugely competitive and his style works for Florida. I don't believe anything is personal (not against a player or coach specifically) but more to stir the pot and generate some excitement. I may be wrong and I don't always agree with his tactics but the results are a night and day improvement over the last two coaches.
That's a great idea and and would be a nice gesture from the team. Hope they can make this happen.
There is enough sh!t talk from the usual suspects. We have our own, of course, but it doesn't make it better. Just ignore them - they have 5 wins this season. Much rather be in our shoes than theirs.
Thank you, Captain Optimism.
Well, one of them we won 40-14, which was the last time we did anything against Mizzou. 21-3 wasn't bad either but the rest stunk. 2018/11/03 Missouri 38 - Florida 17 2017/11/04 Missouri 45 - Florida 16 2016/10/15 Missouri 14 - Florida 40 2015/10/10 Missouri 3 - Florida 21 2014/10/18 Missouri 42 - Florida 13 2013/10/19 Missouri 36 - Florida 17 2012/11/03 Missouri 7 - Florida 14 1966/01/01 Missouri 20 - Florida 18
Agree. Would much rather see ASU than Towson.
BTW, thank you for your service USMC.
I guess the Gators aren't playing this weekend?
You left out "Chump" and neglected to refer to Mullen as "Mullet". In addition you could have chosen to mention either or both of 1. 21 rushing yards 2. Dismal 3rd down percentage - which you failed to do. Is this your first time trolling?
Depends on whether the jersey people had different wristbands than the helmet people.
There was plenty of blame to go around - both on the coaching and execution. The low rushing yards don't surprise me as our O-line hasn't been able to support it effectively all season. Congrats UGA - now go win it all.
On the bright side, thirtysixtoseventeenchump.com now redirects to this site. Grumble. Good win Dawgs, we will see you next year.

Going to be fun but curious why the Swamp is so prominent at the end.
