I just wish we could get the "gump monkey" off our back. We haven't beat them since 08.
I, too, wish this. However, I just don't think we yet have the team to beat them in their house with their refs, even though Bama has no QB to speak of. If Muschamp can pull it off, I'll be a believer.
A sound win over Alabama would certainly go a long way to improving my opinion on Muschamp....
The defense hasn't been the same since Dan Quinn left. With Quinn, we win 11 games in 2012. Without Quinn, we win four games and the Seahawks win their first Super Bowl with a ferocious Quinn-led defense.
I agree that Quinn is a great coach but our defense only gave up 27 more ypg while dealing with injuries and an even worse offense then the year before. We did give up 7 more points a game but field position with our poor kicking also played a big factor. I don't think you can blame last year on the defense or state it wasn't as good given the complete lack of support it had from the other two facets of the game.
I couldn't agree more with everything you wrote above.
That Miami game was both embarrassing, disgraceful....and yet a game we clearly had.
Boom thinks this is the NFL and you can blow every other game or so and still keep your job.
Apparently that's been working for him too, so he nearly loses every homecoming game as proof.
Any Gator fan who's waiting for the 'genius' to kick in will be severely disappointed with the reality.
I'm not sure if you're the one that should be the poster child for saying what's reality or not. I'm also not surprised that you agree with what blue and crabby wrote. My 9 year old could read the situation better then him.
There is no real debate here. The numbers are the numbers and ALL schools have injuries and all schools have to play who they have. Removing emotion and private loyalties leaves only the bare facts. Those facts do point to the simple truth that 2013 can't happen again and if it does EVERYONE involved with the decision to maintain status quo will face a review. That excludes no one.
I think that if the Urban Meyer that we hired in 05 had been available, Muschamp wouldn't be on our sideline this fall. If he has the same type of results mid-way thru this season that Zook had during his last year, then he's going to get the same treatment Zook got.
I thought that you were the one calling for debate not negative repping. Your statement above is not debate.
It's never a debate with ThePlayer.
oh so his "wrong thinking" is to be punished by the new posse. Got it
No it doesn't sound like you got it. He goes thread to thread with the same garbage. If you like that then that's your issue not mine. At least I responded to his comment and didn't just negative rep it which was my point to begin with. Try and keep up!
Ps. Posse is outdated. We prefer gang. Aren't you the new one?
I agree that Florida had plenty of reasons to let go of Muschamp after the Georgia Southern loss, but I am not sure there were any coaches on the market that were available and right for Florida. Chris Petersen? Lane Kiffin? Would Florida truly be in the market for Charlie Strong had we fired Muschamp after that game?
I don't believe Petersen would've came to the east coast. Hell No to Kiffen lol. I also wonder if Strong would've came because I bet he feels left out we didn't come to him the first time; plus we wouldn't have paid him what Texas did.
I think Florida could afford to match what Texas offered Charlie Strong, but I think that Florida made a conscious decision to look for a young, up-and-coming head coach. In 2011, I think that was an accurate description of Will Muschamp. My guess is that Jeremy Foley thinks Charlie Strong's best days are behind him, but that Will Muschamp's best days are ahead of him.
Other than Strong, I cannot think of another viable candidate that could have taken over for Muschamp if he were fired last year. If he gets fired this year, then there will be a different pool of available coaches.
No doubt we could but would we?
It is very possible JF didn't see a top notch coach to go after if WM was released the way he saw us getting CM. Having said that, I would not have mind getting vandy's coach. But this is wm 4th year, it's sink or swim time. Losing again to uga and sow isn't going to be palatable.
I think that WM has a boss. So does JF. I think that WM job is in jeopardy and I think JF has made him very much aware of this. I do not think JF's job is in jeopardy, nor do I think it should be. W-L of the football team, as much as many fans would like to think otherwise, is only one of many ticks on the checklist for his job performance. You can argue his current grade on that subject, but I think it is fairly safe to say that his A+ average in almost every other category I can think of would bring him up to a very solid A. Like it or not for the W-L centric folks, money is the driver. Of course, if the W-L is low enough for long enough, that will affect the bottom line and will affect his job grade. I think he can very safely continue on present course and retire from UF as one of the best in the game.
As I have posted before, there is nothing inherently wrong with Machen deciding that he wants UF to become Vanderbilt. But if anyone thinks that the money, from ALL directions, is going to come in the same amounts with a mediocre product on the football field, well that is just plain silly. UF is UF and that comes with expectations.
