The other consideration, Florida was very much in play for Justin Fields with McElwain and even came for another look after Mullen came on board. Without Franks, Florida looks more attractive to Fields as playing time is why he left UGA for Ohio State. Fields would have seen a realistic opportunity to start year 2 with Mullen.
Urban Meyer: ‘I think this is the year’ Dan Mullen beats Georgia; Florida ‘should’ reach College Football Playoff
The lost decade definitely falls at the feet of Meyer. Watch his last year and you can see the team had major flaws. Look at the roster left behind andvthe flaws were glaring. Muschamp couldn't even run a full spring game the next year. Did Muschamp and McElwain fix the problems, no. Did Muschamp take the offense back to prehistoric conditions? Absolutely. Did McElwain stand a chance at recruiting no. Just like the Coronavirus, you have to find where did the problem begin. For UF football the problems started with what Meyer left behind.
Another year of offseason optimism for Tenn. 9 wins is a tall order. It means they beat all the teams they should and the bowl. Taking out the big 3+ OU is unlikely as they got curbstomped by them. Playing UGA in Nov won't help as UGA play it's best ball post WLOCP. 4th item is a multi year stat. Pointless to include. The last item is what matters. Guarantano has been the QB for half the last decade and it hasn't gone well. Those behind him need to step up and push him for the starting Job.
Wuerffel and Dean split reps on a play by play basis. Finished 11-2, won Sec and Sugar Bowl. But only the HBC has been successful at it
It's interesting that you say he is behind because of Kirby and his offensive staff. Wasn't your OC his OC for his first 3 years on campus? So aren't you really saying you OC sux. No wonder y'all scored 3 against the Gators. Chomp chomp
Only lost WR to grad. They just happened to be 4 good WRs. But Grimes and Toneys return is impactful, especially adding in Pitts. Copeland is a stud awaiting his turn. Wells will be a solid replacement for Hammond. Then Shorter should get his waiver After those for are a solid WR class from last year plus the 4 stars from this class. All equals a solid and deep group of recievers. Like this year, who knows who is going to have the big game each week.
54 Power 5 teams lost a home game in 2019. Can the remaining 11 teams keep their home streak going in 2020?
Another offseason. Another Tennessee is back to beating good teams because they beat bad teams at the end of the year. When will people learn? UT will have 2 loses in Sep min, 2 loses in Oct min. And then win most of Nov because Mizzou and Kentucky is toughest games.
No. There's not. Are there two potentially great QBs? Yes. Mullen has proven he will adjust system to skillset of players. Unfortunately, Franks injury and Oline caused Mullen to adjust offense mid season. Wasn't til after UGA game when Mullen and staff got comfortable calling plays with Trask and forsaking run game. Next year will have a better understanding of what Trask can do, improved Oline and if Trask were to go down they would be more prepared to switch to Jones or Richardson.
SDS Mailbag: Will Muschamp’s hot seat, best non-football SEC sports and a pair of bizarre offseason questions
Of the 3 you listed as 1 of 3 you only shot is Tennessee. Of the six you listed as wins, ECU is always tough, Mizzou is a wildcard and the reason to think Kentucky will be different is they will have a QB starting. Considering Muschamp coaches conservative he is always apt to lose a game he should win and win a game he should've lost. With that, ceiling is 7, good season is 6 and likely a 4 or 5 win season.
UF beat AU with back up making 1st SEC start and went TD for TD with LSU into the 4th with same back up making 1 road start in Death Valley and a a close game vs UGA. losses are to 1 and 4 vs bama losses to 1 and 15.
Are you saying UGA is no better than Vandy. Literally the same score as our game last week.
Florida WR Tyrie Cleveland responds to David Pollack’s comments on missed calls in South Carolina game
What happens when your coach stays mad about calls from one game is you end up losing to one of the worst teams in the conference. Enjoy your losses.
Its going to be a long winter on that roof
I bet LSU gives up more points than Auburn did.
Auburn's offense is no juggernaut if you haven't seen. A running freshman QB, solid o-line, and good backs. Not saying that it's not a good offense. But its hardly new or a puzzle. Stack the box and see who is can be more physical.
Actually there are academic scholarships that are provided due to the football program. Fact is, more successful the football program is, the more revenue it receives. The more money it receives the more academic scholarships and other non revenue earning sports the school can afford. To produce a program that is successful you need a good coach (not Muschamp, but hey I hear McElwain is available if you want another former Gator coach), good recruits, good facilities, and good gameday environment. The fact that you don't care doesn't matter. University officials all know it matters.
