It is really nice when 2 rival fanbases are in complete agreement. Based on what you guys think, Mullen is perfect for you. And I am much happier to have Kirby, rather than the "better" coach that UF has. All is good, until Mullen goes off his meds, slips his muzzle, & gets put in the DawgPound again.
Berate Kirby ever how much you need, to make yourself feel better. It will be interesting to see if you think he is as clueless over the next few years. Everyone already knows what an embarrassment Mullen is for UF. But just for fun, how clueless do you have to be to demand a full stadium in the middle of a pandemic, or to deny starting an in game brawl, when your actions are being recorded from a half dozen camera angles & mics? I could go on for a while, but you get the point. I sincerely hope that UGA will keep Kirby for as long as he wants to coach. I also personally hope that UF gives Mullen the Jimbo Fisher treatment & locks him up for another 10 years. Hopefully, you & Stricklin do too!
mrtruth, You are clearly living in an intentionally altered reality. You do realize that Kirby is under nowhere near the pressure that is on Dan Mullen. Stricklin has shortened Dan's leash considerably. Poor old Dan is about 1 more conniption fit from being let go. Given that he is so prone to going off the rails at any time, I will be shocked if we don't see it before year end. And even funnier, if we don't see it before years end, we then know that Dan, or the meds that he is supposed to be taking, can control how he acts, & that his consistent nuttiness is a conscious choice. Thanks for keeping such an embarrassment in charge. It is truly entertaining to watch.
May God Bless George Pickens to a full & speedy recovery!
I had the opportunity to work for Mr. Sanders a little more than 30 years ago. We were both fairly young men at the time. He sounds like he is still fairly full of himself, but now handling himself with the maturity that 53 years on this earth brings. He should expect South Alabama to take any advantage that they can, &further to be really proud of beating JSU.
I am definitely not a Jeremy Pruitt fan. With that said, I expect he would have given that house away to keep from having to return to TN. I know I would if I was him. Jeremy Pruitt has been castigated & beat down every legal way possible & probably some illegal ways as well. Some of that was no doubt well deserved, but some is most likely deflecting of blame to him by others, who won't take responsibility for their own actions. What goes around comes around. Sometimes it is just best to let sleeping dogs lie.
Keyan Burnett has legs, & knows how to use them. He looks likes he is moving in real time, with everyone else in the frame moving in slow motion. Congratulations young man! That is a play that you can be proud of for the rest of your life.
Well I just have to ask. Who would you rather have under center for your team this fall, if you could pick, Emory Jones with the current UF surrounding cast or Jonathan Tyler Daniels with his offensive teammates?
John, How can I help you get the UF AD job locked up? Is there someone I can call? I would love for Dan Mullen to get the Jimbo Fisher treatment with a 10 year contract. He is the perfect coach for UF from this UGA fan's perspective. He is good enough to keep the UGA/UF game mostly competitive. He does snarky better than anyone. He has a Darth Vader costume & is willing to wear it to to press conferences. He don't mind mixing it up in a brawl or demanding a full stadium in a pandemic. Dan Mullen is just wonderfully entertaining. PLEASE KEEP DAN AT UF!!!!
Nothing against Emory Jones. He is a good dual threat QB. I know that he was recruited by UGA, but chose UF. It is what it is. Does UF have enough of a surrounding cast on the offense & a good enough defense to beat Alabama this year (once or twice) in your opinion? That is what my comment was based on. What record do you expect for UF this year?
Gtr4life, Let me see if I can give you perspective. It sure is funny that gator fans constantly tell UGA folks that we need to replace Kirby. On the other hand, UGA fans mostly want UF to keep Mullen forever. That makes it abundantly clear that UF fears Kirby staying at UGA & well....... you should be able to figure out the rest on your own. Please hang on to Mullen at UF as long as you can.
Do tell. What makes Mike Bobo so toxic? Do you have personal experience with Mike or are you referring to the “anonymous” unattributed quotes in a couple of articles about him? I feel quite certain that you know that those detrimental comments about Mike were heavily refuted by many more quotes from players & coaches that were willing to put their names behind their words.
I’d say UF is more than 6 points away from topping Alabama. A realistic view, of their schedule & the current circumstances of their team & the teams on their schedule this year, points to a 9 & 3 record. It could be 10 & 2 if things fall into place. It is unlikely that UF wins the regular season matchup with Alabama or gets to see them in the conference championship.
Heck, even the former USC head coach moved back to Athens. Now that I think about it, I lived there for about 10 years. Those were some good times. Maybe I’ll move back too.
Mark Richt has proven himself to be a really good coach & person. I would be pleased to be compared to him. 10 wins on average over 15 years while running a clean program in the SEC is a record that very few can ever aspire to. No matter what anyone says, Kirby Smart is doing just as well & maybe even just a little better. I have no doubt that UF fans do not expect to get anything close to that out of Mullen.
"A pleasant surprise is nothing against Orgeron", yet. There, I fixed it for you. It remains to be seen what else is going to bubble up. So far, there have been no lawsuits filed for discovery, like there was for the Les Miles information. If they are filed & nothing comes out, then Orgeron is likely good to go.
I certainly hope that you are right gatorbait! He is definitely entertaining. And he is a good enough coach to keep UF fairly competitive.
"Boutte will win the Biletnikoff on our way to a natty…" I guess this is where the FANTASY part of the screen name kicks in!
Please take into consideration how well your other former UGA coaches have worked out for you, before you think that we are somehow jealous. We do! But then again, maybe I shouldn't have mentioned it. On another note, that is 1 great idea that I am supremely glad no coach has had while at UGA. And I will certainly be glad if no UGA coach ever tries to copy that idea. You do you.
I would say it was stupid if it was Nick Saban or Kirby Smart, because it is in my opinion. I call balls & strikes based on where the ball crosses the plate, not based on who is pitching or batting, like some folks here do.
And what exactly does this say to every recruit that this guy will ever speak to in the future? "IF we truly wanted you, I would tattoo your name on my butt to prove it". Pretty stupid to do it. Even more stupid to tell it!
If the NFL rumor mill has any credence, Tua should be hoping that the Dolphins don't trade him & then use the #3 pick for his replacement.
According to Wayne Bratton, "Kentucky was one of only two teams in the Southeastern Conference (South Carolina was the other) that did not have to reschedule or lose a football game due to COVID issues last fall. That speaks highly of the program’s ability to follow protocols and handle these uncertain times as best as possible". If this is true, what does it say about the programs that had covid related issues during the past season?
Probably best for him & UGA. He was not likely to play much & it frees up a scholarship for another kid who might be able to.
How sad for this young man to work so hard to get to this point in life & then lay down. So much ability & potential, but apparently not much inner drive or motivation, after getting his initial contract & some money in his pockets. Hopefully, for his sake, he can get some mentoring to enhance his perspective.
