Sparky Gator

Unless he was being held back by Coach White, he runs an offense way too slow for Pearl. Most Gator fans are ready to see a faster tempo on offense. Now we get to see if its coaching or the players running the offense.
Thats a lot of free college education if hes actually been taking classes the entire time. Hope he made wise use of all that class time.
If baseball was included I like the UF coaches even more. O'Sullivan is the most successful baseball coach in the Gators history.
And the funny thing was Miami fans thought they had stolen the next great OC. It's a lot easier to look like a great coach when you have the most talented team on the field almost every game. There might be a simple reason that none of Saban's ex assistants have beaten him. Have any faced him with a more talented team yet?
One run in only 4.39 seconds just assured he made the right decision in skipping his sr year. He's about to make a lot of money on signing day.
Actually they can sign in December of this year, but you are still spot on that 9 months is a long time for kids that are 16-18 years old.
And one player that could end up being the most important, if he can stay healthy, is Toney. When he's healthy he is almost always the best athlete on the field. Some plays he makes seem almost comical watching the defenders. If he can stay healthy, he will make a lot of money after next season.
While I think Kirby shouldn't be more than a 1, it's a completely naive statement to think he wouldn't ever leave for the NFL. All football coaches worth anything aspire to coach the best. The NFL has the best athletes, the most money, and the coaches dont have to beg 16 year old kids to come to their team.
Dont forget scholarships are actually only for 1 year. Although they are almost always renewed yearly by the schools. They only count against the 85 limit when they are active with the team. With the transfer portal now being a huge part of cfb, you can expect to see lots more 1-2 year players with a school. 3 out of the 4 players invited to NY for the Heisman were transfers....its not going away now
We can all guess from your screen name that you're not interested in a traditional man/woman marriage.
You must have never heard of Danny Wuerfel and all the great things he has done away from cfb, where he simply won a Heisman and National title.
Well I guess we will all get to find out soon just how good Coach O is putting a staff together. That's gonna be a huge reload project next season.
It would have been great to see the offense without Burrow, but with Brady, to get a better comparison of who had the biggest effect on the way LSU played. If it was as simple as being around someone to carry on their offense, teams wouldn't miss when guys take other jobs. Is it football season again yet?
Much like GA has had to do the last couple of years, UF will have to listen to high expectations all summer. Sometimes hearing how great you are doesnt lead things. Winning the east again would be nice, but does it really mean that much if you get beat in Atlanta? Asking for my GA friends that are sure to chime in soon :)
I'm sure because he's rated a "3*", that you know more about him than the 6 SEC schools that have already offered him. UGA: Champions of Recruiting....woohoo
I tend to stay away from the UGA trolls that invade every UF article, but this is simply too much fun to not enjoy. After the stupid comments from the few that offer no real input, constantly posting that the ship was sinking in Gainesville last summer with players leaving....oh how the tide has turned. My only hope is that enough trolls will live on the UGa articles to give them a little taste of their own.
If all nepotism, or simply people getting jobs because of somebody they know, were eliminated, there would be a sudden crashing of the workforce. I would love to know the amount of people that have their jobs because of some type of personal connection.
Some coordinator is about to get a nice pay raise. I would think outside the box and maybe give Joe Brady his first shot at being a head coach.
Are you just making that up about being the "only interim coach with a winning record". I seem to remember Galen Hall going undefeated as the interim coach at UF before getting the permanent job at the end of the 1984 season. Maybe you meant .....nevermind
Mountain Dog, dont be using my name when talking about a troll. I spent years in the electrical trade earning these "sparks"
Life is always about timing. Amazing what the different paths could have been if Stricklin had simply waited another day to make the offer. Gator fans are extremely happy with the path we're on.
One of those has loss at home to a team with a losing record. The other lost to the #1 team. That loss should hurt a team's chance more.
The fact that UVA was the slowest team in the country last year makes me feel better about playing slower, but then I remember they shot the 3 lights out. I've been a big Coach White supporter, but he needs this year to turn into a deep tourney run.
If UGA loses to A&M or GT they are not making it in. If LSU were to get beaten badly in the SECCG I could even see the SEC getting left out completely. Now that would cause an uproar!!
Actually you are wrong again. 5 recruiting classes make up a team. It's easier for UF to raise their overall "star rating" than it is for Bama or Ga currently. But I'm guessing math was never one of your strong suits.
I agree on that call Joe. Trask even ran the ball with a "like really, this is what you want me to do?" mentality on the play
And as the little old lady in the commercial says: "that's not how any of this works"
And unfortunately for SC fans, you have already seen the best of Muschamp. He's a great DC, but he simply isn't a head coach.
I'm fortunate (and old to have been to games at every sec school except MZ. The night games at LSU and Auburn have as great a noise level and atmosphere as any place in the country. The best thing that can happen for an opposing team is to get an early lead and take the crowd down a few notches. After that it's about playing good, disciplined football. BTW...LSU has the best tailgating food of anywhere!!
