Pruitts statement is one more reason why I still respect him so much. It’s a sad moment for the young man. But, I suspect Pruitt and UT will help build him up in the way he should go. His life will still be better for it.
Unfortunately, It’s something you guys are going to have to do. It’s a shame that it’s come down to this for all of our schools. UGA recently built a SECOND indoor facility and recruiting center. More construction to come. UT is planning a $300 zillion stadium renovation, UA just announced a stadium renovation, USC recently completed stunning facilities upgrade and UF decided to refresh facilities. That’s well over a billion dollars to chase the same recruits with buildings that will be obsolete in 7 years. I know it’s the reality we live in. But, i can’t help but think that $ might be better used to invest directly in the students and athletes.
I don’t think Black’s failure to qualify academically is indicative of recruiting miscues by Mullen. While it may have a short term impact on available 2-deep talent, it’s not a sign that Mullen can’t recruit well. Honestly, it’s a sign that Mullen it out there fighting hard to pick up talent where ever he can. UF is in a temporary down phase, and rebuilding. He’s going to have to recruit some players with potential defects along with what all around elite recruits he can. Then coach them up. Honestly, that’s his calling card anyway.
It says we still have a lot of work to do to meet our aspirations.
LOL. I actually read this post in my head as Steven Tyler singing Ragdoll.
TruTurd is a troll. Don’t respond to her.
The Fulmer comments go straight to the crux of Pruitt’s potential. He’s a firey, demanding, and passionate about the details. But, that is expressed in the extreme as a demeaning control freak. Since he can’t do all the coaching by himself, he has to build a trustful staff for the team to produce better results than a Paul Johnson staff. If he’s showing good management signs of trustfully delegating to staff, this may indicate he’s learning the balance of how to lead with passion, rather than enforce with fear. Kids may perform with either. But, you can’t coach to success with intimidated staff.
So, now all UF fans know that when Mullen starts a sentence in the future with, “l’ll ne honest with you...”, everything he says after that will be a lie. Mullen’s just smart enough to understand that trolling your big brother is fun for everyone and good for business, But, he just doesn’t have the savvy to dissemble without looking dumb.
This isn’t an “alcohol sales” plan. It’s a “placate the few people who could actually be a problem for you if you don’t sell alcohol plan”. The club level donors are much less likely to be boozed up from a pre-game tailgate party. So, they are less likely to cause game time liability from being drunk and rowdy. Those donors are also the only people who have sufficient leverage to give McGarity heartburn or revenue problems. Oh, and not being able to take your drink to your seat is weird. Maybe they intend to let you stand in your box and drink from a field facing bartop
Like him or not, the game is much more entertaining when he’s coaching.
Ha! Sounds more like a coach who just thought it would be entertaining to troll Saban and UA fanbase. Anything could happen, but that prediction isnt based in Todays reality.
You hate to lose quality depth like this. But honestly, this recent spate of transfers form UF can end up being a good thing. It changes the lockerroom culture and gives Mullen to reassert his leadership in a new direction.(not saying Jackson is a bad guy) I think you guys will be better off in the long run.
I think Pruitt has had enough time to wash out the player stuck in a Butch mentality. His disciplined culture will take hold enough this year to win a few games they lost last year regardless of talent. He’s the kind of coach who can produce above average results with less talent than many other coaches. But, a bigger question for me around a supposed 5 year timeline, is if Pruitt and Fulmer can get things straightened out in the AD and Presidents offices, as well as with meddling boosters.
Sucks to lose the talent. But, better he leaves if meeting team standards is a problem.
Williams is an espn300, and has show possible upside with his measurable stats. While he looks like a better fit at CB, it’ll be interesting to see if Mullen gives him a shot at WR.
When the prosecutor basically cusses out the reporter for attempting to smear this young man as a criminal, common sense say, dont run a post baiting that narrative. Sit on stuff like this until Mullen uses SEC media days to find a clever way to announce how many days it’s been since a UGA athlete assaulted a tow truck driver.
Nothing unusual about a recruit falling short with grades. Best of luck to the young man. That being said, Mullen sure needs to figure out how to firewall the negative direction on his program.
Tom Crean is for real. I may have to break down and start following UGA BB more closely.
As a Dawg, I can’t help but get a good laugh at how quickly circumstances conspired to turn Mullens cute comments back on himself. But, in reality, this isn’t a recruiting or program killer they way Paul is implying. It can be if Mullen doesnt handle his business and shut this bad PR down, or adds fuel to the fire. It’s good for a chuckle right now, but not a big internet hissy.
Agreed, that is clearly a clickbait headline. I doubt the situation is as ugly as it’s being portrayed. However, while the players tweets would be harmless hazing if kept to the confines of the lockerroom, making those comments publicly signals questionable team culture, player, and coaching leadership to the CFB world. Mixing in his room mates sexual assualt allegations makes it more likely to be construed negatively. The players probably didnt intend that to be part of the message. None the less, it is.
That’s a pretty cool endorsement from GOAT. Respect to your spurs, whichever way they point today.
This has potential to eclispe the Mac-the-shark and credit card nine dumpster fires. Just waiting on a hilariously akward public reaction from Mullen to kick this thing into overdrive.
Yea, that instinct to get irate is very personality defect at the heart of this assclown’s problems. I’d get mad to, darth. But the difference between guys like us and Zach is that we wouldn’t scare school marms into calling the police when we get mad.
Does it seem weird to anyone else that Mullen isn’t managing the public relations side of this? No comments, or even an impersonal press release. I’ve never seen him as the kind of guy to shy away from the public messaging, even in adverse situations like this.
Gus doesnt hang his hat on developing first round QB selections. His offensive successes rely on quick O-linemen, power RB’s, and legit duel threat QB. Stidham was very good, but didnt cast well in the DT role. Also, Auburns O-line last year struggled. So, while this dopes comments are entertaining snark, I dont see them as particularly relevant.
