That's an easy one for me. I'll take LSU & Auburn any day. And despite the authors take, I believe UF goes 2-0 vs the west this year.
So did oswho beat Wiscansin in cheese consumption? Didn't see that coming!!
I absolutely LOVED how aggressive or D was this past year and the huge increase in play behind the line of scrimmage. More TFL, WAY more sacks. Under Shannon we applied absolutely NO pressure and paid for it repeatedly. The SEC is a line of scrimmage league and if you let an offense get past that first level you are in trouble. Best way to prevent that is to prevent a play from ever taking off.
Tenn landing two 5 star OL didn't hurt them any. While UF lost 4 "starters" on the OL, I really want to see how many game reps our OL returns. We have like 13 or 14 OL on the roster now and a lot of them got reps thorough the year last year. I know the first snap guys are gone, I just don't have a feel for how much we really lost...
Franks made huge improvement in year 1 under Mullen. CDM typically expects to see a big jump into year 2 from his QB's. You can throw away the garbage stats from FF's Freshman year under a staff that in hind sight was pretty incompetent. And it's not just CDM coaching him up either. Our actual QB Coach, Brian Johnson, is no slouch either. FF may not get into the Heisman race, but any waiting (and hoping) so see him fall on his face are going to be sorely disappointed!! Go Gators!!
CTG hasn't had UF talent at the other places he's been. That string will end sooner rather than later.
North until you smell it, west till you step in it...
Sure they may get the sanctions reduced, and even get the bowl ban removed. But there is NO WAY that happens before Bryant needs to commit somewhere. He has to learn a new system and gel with a new team and that takes time. He has already started that process at Mizzu and would be WAY behind the curve if he were to try to make a move later this spring or over the summer.
This has absolutely nothing to do with UF football. If you would have asked this question about UF in the last 9 years I would have given the same answer. But honestly speaking, is anything I just said incorrect or implausible?...
Well, from this external perspective Mizzu just got screwed!! This is WAY out of proportion from what they got cited for IMHO.
Just thinking out loud... There is a pretty decent chance that he wouldn't even play in a potential bowl anyway if he were to follow the "getting ready for the NFL Combine" trend. Let's be honest, even with him Mizzu wasn't headed to the play-off. If he feels like the coaching staff and existing pieces give him the best opportunity to showcase his talents, nothing really changes for him. If his intentions were really to be in the play-off or high level bowl, he wouldn't be at Missouri in the first place...
Wow, NCAA threw the book on this one!! Post season ban, scholly restrictions (though only 1 or 2 and only for a year), recruiting restrictions, and that fine...I hate to see what that dollar figure actually comes out to. That could be upwards of $500k...not chump change
Yea, he will need 5 - 6 more undefeated, championship seasons to get there!
Saban (and other top coaches) make it seem like it would be easy. What Saban has done at Bama is an amazing accomplishment, and Bama certainly is one of those places that is set-up to succeed. But just look at the guys that came before Nick: DuBose, Franchinoe, Shula...all those guys had the "Bama" name to work with and didn't pan out. All I can say is stepping into Nick Saban's shadow is going to be worse than stepping into the Bear's. Expectations in this world of instant gratification will be sky high. Anything less that immediately competing for championship is going to be viewed as a failure.
I don't see Dabo making the move to Bama directly behind Saban. Nobody really wants to follow that act. Maybe 3-4 years down the road after the next coach can't produce like Saban (and the next guy won't) it will be time for Dabo to come home. Swinney is a young guy, he has time. He can afford to enjoy the success he has built at Clemson and come to Bama on his own terms when the time is right. After Saban is not the right time.
I like our cross division match up with LSU. They are typically one of the best teams in the country which makes the game good for strength of schedule. It is also a good measuring stick for both teams to see how you fare against a quality opponent. I like the idea of playing all of the conference teams, but I also hate to see a lot of other great (some VERY long standing) rivalry games go away. Can't we just have it both ways!! lol
Bounce Back?!! They lost one game (the championship game) all year. To the National Champion...What's to bounce back from??
Mike Slive's legacy is starting to be manifest. The arms race is on in college football an NO ONE can compete with the SEC's year over year revenue. Every team in the SEC is expanding and improving on facilities and the gap between the SEC and the rest of the country will only widen. Nice looking facility, I would love to see it again in a couple months after they have a chance to turn their graphics department loose. Also can't wait to see what our new football facility is going to look like. One thing is for sure, at 130k square feet & $65+Mil it will be sick!! Go Gators!!
There are 5 UF games on the "list" and 1 in the "just missed". I guess you're using Mizzou math...
If that was as loud as you have ever heard the Swamp...You ain't seen nothing yet!! That was a good day, but nothing like the Spurrier / Meyer days... I expect some crazy Saturdays with Mullen in town. Go Gators!!
If it makes you feel better, they are in the other semi-final against a non-SEC team. Better?
What is going on at UGA? Lots of players declaring, a couple transfers, now a top coordinator making a lateral (and that's being kind) move to UT? Somethings up...
One thing is for sure, that kid has wisdom far beyond his young years!! I would be willing to bet he will make the most of whatever opportunity he chooses and will be fine.
Yeaaa, no! UF is the #8 rated public university in the country (tie with Ga Tech). It is NOT "about the same" as the others.
Clue me in Citro… UF Ranked the #8 public university (tied with GA Tech) FSU #26 USF #58 Ole Miss #78 UCF #87 Miss St #97
And that's -5 rushing yards for Stidham, formatting looses that in the post above!!
Jarrett Stidham: 2,794 18 TD 5 Int 3.6 TD/Int QB Rating 137.7 -5yd Rush 3TD Feleipe Franks: 2,457 24 TD 6 Int 4.0 TD/Int QB Rating 143.3 350yd Rush 7TD You keep your guy, we'll keep ours...
10-3 Season. Convincing NY6 Bowl win vs B1G opponent. #15 recruiting class that will likely end up well within the top 10. New Indoor practice facility. New 130k SF / $65+ Mil Football facility on the way. Yep, future looks pretty bleak.
Wow, ucf is now up to the #53 ranked class. Good job Josh...
