As fans it’s hard to be objective. However, the majority of those outside the program seem to mostly agree that Mullen is a better game-day coach, and Smart a better recruiter. The majority may be wrong, but they may be right... It only takes a bounce of an oblong ball to tilt the odds one way or another.
I’m pretty sure we were playing offensive linemen at corner due to injuries in our secondary.
You obviously misunderstood my comment on “more talent to work with“. I was not saying that he would have more talent than Kirby, but more talent than he had last year.
Difference in Dan’s record vs Kirby’s and Kirby’s vs Nick’s (This year anyway), is that Dan clearly outcoached Kirby, and Kirby fell flat on his face coaching against Nick. Add the fact that Dan now has a full year with his team with the fact that he inarguably will have more talent this year to work with, and Florida should be the favorite in Jacksonville come October.
... and yet Kirby tried to keep Chaney, only letting him go when Georgia got outbid. Either all of the Georgia fans are smarter than Kirby, or Chaney really wasn’t the problem
I dare say that if we weren’t missing our two stud corners, last year’s game wouldn’t have had Fromm throwing the ball around like he did. It was worth it though, because this year we get them back to go with the now-seasoned sophomores. Add in Elam and Steele, and I think we stand a really good chance this year.
Grantham has never had the kind of athletes he has now, and will have the next few years, including the time he was at Georgia. Any negatives can be chalked up to that. He’s getting his group in there, so the doggies should be on notice.
Wow, so you believe Georgia really pays people, huh. What a horrible analogy to use if you thought no money changed hands. No saints fan here at all, but that was the most legitimate complaint ever. If I were the saints players I’d have immediately declared that the whole team was going on strike - not playing another game until that aggregious no-call was addressed and rectified.
Why can’t Kirby beat McElwain (other than in a game where McElwain knew he was getting fired the next day)? Obviously getting beat by the Gators in his first year didn’t mean that Kirby wasn’t a good coach, and Kirby beating Mullen in his first year (or one time at Mississippi State) doesn’t make Mullen an inferior coach. Even a die-hard fan has to admit there were few more bone-headed plays than that fake punt though.
To all who say Kirby is a better coach, name one play-call that was 10% as boneheaded as that fake punt.
First-year Mullen lead Florida to a higher year-end ranking than third-year Kirby’s Bulldogs (tied AP/higher in Coach’s). First year record better than Kirby’s first year by 2 games, despite Kirby inheriting a 10-3 team and Mullen a 4-7 team. For you who want to say “oh, but look at head to head”, I say Jim McElwain beat Kirby his first year. Did that prove he was a better coach? Mic drop
Fist-year Mullen lead Florida to a higher year-end ranking than third-year Kirby’s Bulldogs (tied AP/higher in Coach’s). First year record better than Kirby’s first year by 2 games, despite Kirby inheriting a 10-3 team and Mullen a 4-7 team.
Guy didn’t win enough (not his fault, but it’s easier to put it on him than admit the coach you just hired isn’t very good). If this were Jameis Winston no action would have been taken. If you win, you’re in.
Of course I didn’t mind it as much when the VT players were faking injuries to help slow down and beat FSU (although in hindsight all they needed to do to win was play high-school level ball).
When a player goes down with an injury, make them have to stay out for more than one play, either for the rest of the drive or a set amount of time. You don’t want to encourage players to play hurt, but you also need to dis-incentivize them from faking injuries to slow down tempo.
Let’s see... if each year brings that level of improvement. 2019 100% completion 368 yds passing A gazillion yds rushing.
Florida defense will improve significantly next year George’s offense will lose a ton of production Georgia will be lucky to get half of 40
