As a Dolphins fan I was fine with Pitts, Chase, Smith, or Waddle taken at 6. Any of them immediately upgrades the WR room that Tua had to throw to last year. They were awful, and I think Tua got a bad wrap. I think this season should be a huge improvement. However, I was really wanting Najee at 18!
How do you explain the slide of Trask? He had the ultimate QB whisperer as a coach... or so we are told
You never know until the season starts. We can give examples from the past all day... Like Trask being a career benchwarmer until Franks got hurt, rumors that Mac Jones wasn't even gonna start this past year, Joe Burrow not beating out Haskins at OSU, and the list goes on and on. Things can change quickly! Got it???
100%! So nice to see posts that actually logical. Football has so many variables that one person (QB, WR, RB, Coach, etc) doesn't domintate like they would in basketball. Its a puzzle, a combination of talent, chemistry, philosophy, and luck. People are saying Trevor Lawrence is the best QB prospect in a decade maybe more and he has 1 title. There are so many things that go into college football. That's what makes it great!
The top part will be beaten like a dead horse for many more weeks to come... I’m really interested in people’s thoughts on the OC rankings which I thought were fascinating... As much as I hate Mullen as a person and think he’s somewhat overrated as HC, I will say he’s a heck of an OC! But this list was impressive and hard to rank. Jimbo has a NC as an OC, HC, and is building another program in the SEC. Lane has OC NC’s and his offenses have been lights out most places.
I was just going by what Mullen said. “6 points would have beaten Bama.” Why not say 7 instead of 6? But thank you for pointing out how touchdowns and PAT’s work!
Lmao @ Mullen! He can’t even math correctly. 6 points would have tied. At least come out winning if you’re gonna make sarcastic comments!!
Haha yes! On my CPU at the end of the article, right before the comments there is always an earwax ad. It's so gross! I didn't know how the ads work, but glad somebody shares my pain!
Gator fans are so quick to throw an asterisk on the bowl game, but never mention the injuries from Georgia during that game. LeCounte, Pickens, Cleveland, McIntosh, Rochester, and Jordan Davis didn't even dress. Not counting the injuries during the game. It's part of the game I know... so congrats on winning the East and your #13 ranking!
Yea I definitely saw a lot from him him in only a few starts. And he just got to campus in August. I think a whole offseason with Monken definitely will help. I’m just not drinking the koolaid of a heisman trophy just yet lol!
Two takeaways from the game... - I thought the defense was really good considering we were missing our 2 best back end players in Stokes and LeCounte and then others who missed also. Other than the long TD to start the second half I thought it wasn’t bad. 21 points to a top 10 team is pretty good especially considering personnel. - Still not sold on Daniels. UGA receivers seemed to have run by the Cincy defenders all night and he underthrew a few or missed all together. He held on to the ball way too long and took sacks that he could have gotten rid of. OL was make shift with injuries and opt outs so running game was ok, I thought it got better later. Best part was JT did make a late drive of smart plays so I’ll give him that
As much as I despise Dan Mullen (and grantham for that matter) I hate this for trask. I never fully bought into his hype all this year and last year. I think he’s a good college QB but not heisman deserving. But I do give him a ton of credit (him and Mac Jones) for sticking around in an age when everybody gets their feelings hurt and leaves immediately. Most QBs have to start their first year or two on campus. It’s nice seeing a few minutes of prosper doing it for the school and team not just themselves.
Don’t speak too soon. A 23 point road underdog with a QB in his first start also sounds boring... turns out I was on the edge of my seat all night!
Not riding anything. I’m a QB coach at the high school level and as I stated before I made a post saying I believe Mac is the better QB. He doesn’t throw the INT’s that trash does. It was in this post so I’m sorry for you not realizing. I was just saying! I’ll give trask his due, they won the east, while Georgia was banged up and didn’t have a QB. But guess who won’t have a QB next year and the other team will be ready for payback? Can’t wait to watch next week, good luck
I seriously made a comment on the finebaum article comparing the 2 QB’s. Florida fans were so quick to point out the numbers. You can’t back his anymore! And not knocking the guy cause he’s great... but he makes bonehead throws that I feel Mac doesn’t.
Stat wise I’m saying it’s more impressive that Jones is putting up the numbers in a balanced offense. If he threw every down how gaudy would they be, or if he still had Waddle. Watching them both play I feel like jones makes better decisions and throws (not by much.) Just my opinion. I agree that both could win it but I’m giving the edge to the undefeated one.
Jones should win it. He points out how good Najee Harris is, that just goes to show how balanced Bama is and Jones is still putting up insane numbers. Trask is throwing by the goal line and all game long. Florida has 6 rushing tds on the year while Harris has 20 by himself.
Good call! Every college quarterback needs competent coaching and development. You should change your name from mrtruth to mrobvious.
Not disagreeing with your fist statement because it could be, its college football. But I will disagree with your second sentence. The game was 21-0 Georgia (yes all second half points), but it was played in a monsoon! Kentucky had 17 yards passing and Georgia had 35! That should tell you alot
This is one thing I have always said about Trask... If he was so good why didn't he start over Franks? Coaches are making way too much money to play favorites or not hurt feelings. They sit in meetings, watch film, and practices. So I'm under the assumption they are going to put the best product on the field to win. (Sometimes UGA may not seem like it lol) But I will say Trask has looked really good. He has a ton of weapons also. I'm not sold on him being elite, but he is very good QB.
I agree with everything you just said! And I agree that Trask was a consistent QB last year.
For Trask to be so good, and for Mullen to be such a QB guru... I still can't wrap my brain around Franks starting last year.
First of all I will say that I think the NCAA should just adopt a 1 time transfer rule where they can play immediately (Most QBs are given this). Secondly, this ruling is a little different because its not only in conference, but its inside divisions. And he played and started in the bowl game in January. So it wasn't like an injury or family problems kept him out of playing time. Hard to believe a flip just switched and there was all kind of trouble. Again I think they should all get 1 free pass. The NCAA is so jacked up its crazy. Players like Tate Martell and Justin Fields get it for no reason other than playing time. But
I will give Golding another year to prove himself. He had a ton of injuries last year. Plus I’m sold on Saban being a great judge of talent (whether it be coaches or players.) I mean look at the guys coaching tree!! There are 4 other correct head coaches in our conference who have coached under the guy!! Not counting the numerous around the nation! And Pete was on staff the adopted the DC label. Golding rose through the ranks very very quickly. You don’t just go from a db’s coach in CUSA to Nick Saban’s DC by luck. Saban obv has a reason to keep him another year. I would think he could reach out to probably 80 other DC’s in the nation and they would come! Saban stuck with him... I will give him 1 more year before I call him trash
Can’t blame Kirby for this one at all. I think they have nothing to lose on this hire. Anybody know of the special teams coordinator who left UGA??? Didn’t think so. But now they have arguably the most notable S&C coach in the nation on their sidelines running special teams, at practice, and recruiting (and no longer with bama.) Yea he may not be proven but coaches coach. It’s what they do. Hell Kirby’s first job at UGA was RB’s coach under Richt. I’ve heard Cochran speak at multiple clinics and the dude is unreal. I know why players love him. I would hire him for my staff any day
I love how Georgia losing talent on offense equates to them falling out of the East race (and lets be honest the offense was cringe worthy most of the season.) Yet if you have seen a single mock draft, you realize Bama loses a ton and are #3 and nobody bats an eye. In all fairness they lose that much every year and Saban is the best coach of all time. But give Kirby some credit on his recruiting and his ability to secure the East. 1 loss in 3 seasons to the East is impressive. I wouldn't go betting the house that it ends because of the draft. 9 Defensive starters come back and Kirby usually seems to baffle the offensive guru Dan. I like the chances of 4 straight.
yes its pretty solid, especially considering the fact that the coach's D that returns 80% production seems to be able to stop the coach's O with 63% production. Obviously I'm just joking cause who knows what will happen in Jacksonville. We have a spring and half a season before that game kicks off. I just thought it was funny that people were saying Florida will represent the East in the CCG and maybe the SEC in the playoff, when a lot of the east still returns production.
So in terms of numbers and not just reporters rambling, Florida and Georgia are tied? Interesting!!
He's at least won his division as a head coach in 3 years. Another "offensive guru" has yet to accomplish that in 11 years!
