There’s always a miracle but with the mess on defense and the QB performances I think the Gators have a very slim chance of winning. If they did I’d be thrilled, but I’m not giving in to hope. Now if Treon Harris was our starting QB then maybe…
Spurrier vs Kirby would be a match to see, Mullen needs to be coached by him on what to say or not to say in pressers and when to say it. Like you said, I think a big reason why Mullen is still the coach is because there aren’t a lot of better options available, most of the best coaches are not going to leave their current school.
Were not we’re, my phone likes to change my typing
I don’t think the Gators have caught up to UGA, you can see that clearly this season especially. About last year, the Gators lost a lot of defense starters to the draft or eligibility after 2019 so they we’re playing a lot of green players on defense that didn’t get spring practice so they were on a similar boat as UGA’s offense. Plus Grantham is the DC so that’s an automatic disadvantage sadly.
With that defense, UGA would probably win with a middle schooler at QB.
Mullen switched to Trask in the Missouri game in 2018 (his 1st year) and named him the starter and then Trask broke his leg or ankle in practice and was out for the season. The previous year, Trask had been injured all year and I believe could not participate in Mullen’s 1st spring practice. Franks ended the year hot in 2018 and had a better spring practice (probably because of Trask’s injury) and thus started in 2019 till he got injured a couple games in.
He said Kirby almost beat Mullen last year, not his whole coaching tenure. Everyone knows the record for Kirby vs Mullen at UF is 2-1, soon to be 3-1 and there will probably be no almost barring a miracle.

Maybe Charlie Strong would be willing to be the DC next year with the disaster unfolding in Jacksonville?
Do you really think that team would have beat UGA? Lol. McElwain won the SEC East with Muschamp’s defense, yet the man who said his dog would be successful at QB stunk up the offense all the time he was there.
He should have the freedom/right to choose.
He’s commented a few times in this article, good insight.
I believe last year’s Gator team would have still beat a UGA without injuries, it was a very talented offense and the Gators had several injuries as well and Pitts was knocked out early. About the injuries, UGA has talented recruits on both sides of the ball, other elite teams, like Alabama, have been competitive with backup QBs and other 2nd string players. With the talent UGA has, they should be competitive regardless. Now that Monken has had a year to work with the team you can see the improvements on offense, and if a player goes down on either side there should be a capable 4 or 5 star to fill in and do well. I do agree that besides last year, UGA has been a better team overall in the ‘10s & it looks like it’ll continue that way unless the Gators make several changes.
That’s only been recently after Mullen came on board, before building and renovating facilities were not high priorities for the admin.
I’m sorry you’ve had such bad experiences in the I-75 truck stops, I travel frequently to that area and people have always been friendly and courteous.
So when UGA fans make excuses they’re valid points but when Gator fans make excuses they’re just excuses? The way this Gator team has been playing and with Grantham coaching it’s very reasonable to expect a blowout loss, as much as that stinks for Gator nation. UGA has an excellent chance to win the Natty this year, I don’t see a team that is better so far. OK, OSU, Cincinnati and Alabama may be contenders but we’ll have to see how the rest of the season goes for them. I don’t see a team that challenges UGA till possibly the SEC championship.
Probably because the Gators had such bad results with the previous 2 coaches, they are hesitant to do anything until they have a proven commodity set to replace Mullen. I would think the AD is quietly looking around and if he finds someone, or things get even worse in the remaining games, there will be changes.
I wonder if this is about finding a coach that’ll bring in Arch Manning?

Ironically no penalties, but when there’s 4 interceptions and no stopping the run it takes away from that achievement.
They should make all those fans in that section clean the field and the rest of the campus. I think they may have to check fans more thoroughly in upcoming games and take away possible projectiles.
Lane had a growth curve in coaching. I was impressed with his interviews today as well as this season. Hoping Mullen can learn and improve too.
I agree, UGA is getting better each game and Florida is getting worse. It’s going to be an ugly game for the Gators. It’s a good thing they played TN a few weeks ago, I doubt they could beat them. I’m hoping AR is the starter from here on out and gets real game experience so hopefully they have a stronger season next year.
You’d think the LSU players were coated in butter the way the Gator defense couldn’t tackle them. Very disappointing performance.
If AR becomes the starting qb, that may help that disarray.
Having AR out there when the game was on the line makes me think Mullen is coming to terms with the fact that AR has played better overall, today he scored more touchdowns and in my opinion managed the game better than Emory. If he can have the rest of this season to get experience under his belt I think he has a good chance of being very good or more next season.
I think he’ll be in good behavior after last year’s game.
I don’t know how it is now, but when I was at UF in the late 90’s they would bring out a good amount of officers all around the edge of the field near the end of the 4th quarter. I was at the 1997 FSU game (best game ever!) and the players came into the stands to celebrate with the fans, it was awesome.
