    They went 3-8 last year.

    In his stint as OC there he turned them from worse than #100 in the nation in total offense to #10 in the nation in total offense. The next year they got Cam Newton.......

    You realize MO had a freshman backup qb making his first start and he toasted our superstar D all day long, right?

    Unfortunately, that's like putting a band-aid over a bullet hole at this point. Its too little, too late. The whole regime needs to go.

    I said 2 years ago when Muschamp hired Pease that he was going to live or die depending on how Pease does. Kerwin would probably have bought him more time with the fans/alums. Well Pease is not working out......

    So, they under performed last year, by a lot. And, they got an upgrade in coaching at the same time. Those two things are all it took to get them playing well again.

    Unleash the playmakers!,

    When you are banged up on the line and on D, use your speed.

    Yes Raid I do. He still had all his playmakers to throw it too. One of which was one of the two or three top wide outs in the country coming out of high school.

    The OP obviously has never owned a successful business. Every night of my life, I lie awake wondering how to make my product better, afraid of getting overrun by the competition. I want to be the best at my craft, and if I'm not, I'm a failure.
    You want me to expect less from a coach who's paid millions of dollars more than me, and a university that sends me e-mails and letters all the time asking for my hard earned money to prop up said coach?
    Every single person I've ever fired in my life has always thought they were doing a wonderful job, that they were always just one day away from performing well, and always were loaded with excuses. Remind you of anyone?

    A lot of the guys at Auburn were recruited by Malzahn before he moved on and returned. He already has a lot of "his players" in his offense. That had to help a ton.

    Foley needs to identify all fans who are not "true gators" and order them removed from all uf events, even if physical force is required!

    Keep Muschamp and if the offense continues to offend, you won't have to fire the fans. They just won't show up.

    I think a lot of good Offensive Coordinators would love to join the staff at UF as long as Coach Boom gives them the reins. We have all wondered whether Muschamp or Pease was really calling the plays. I'm now convinced its Pease. He got a great reputation that was never deserved (at Boise St) and came here without knowing how to run a top flight offense. The fact that he is not much involved in recruiting convinced me that its time for him to go. The O-line really needs someone who can teach and reinforce the basic skills necessary to be successful at this level!

    Where are we going to find a good OC that would leave whatever job he has to come to UF?
    We have been thru 2 OC in 3 years and our head coach has a very short window to win.

    A good coach makes adjustments to be successful. Last year how many games did the Gators go in at half time and make adjustments and then in the second half the defense
    Shut the opponents down and won the game. You would expect the offensive coaches have
    the same abilities. I have not seen this happen. The offense appears to make no adjustments to schemes or play calling to be effective. The boosters have a right to question when there are no changes and the Coaches keep making the same mistakes, Why, Heck try something different. Urban adjusted his offense to work around Chris Leak and they won a NC. Leak could not run a spread offense. Urban was smart enough to realize it. Coach Muschamp has to see what they are trying to do is not working on offense.

    One helluva lot better than ours has been in any of the last 3 years....and that was at his worst. How is he doing there this season as compared to how they did last season?


    I don't deny injuries have hurt. I don't deny that transitioning to a different style of Offense was inevitably going to cause some disruption. Even accepting both of those facts, we should be one helluva lot more productive on Offense than we are. Good coaches would get much more out of the players we have.

    So bring Kerwin, and if Kerwin doesn't work out, what then? Petrino?

    Who will satisfy the insatiable lust of the Gator Nation? Spurrier?

    The guy who nearly lost to a mid-major then lost to a team we rolled?

    When we're 5-7 or 6-6 at the end of the year, the fans will just retire themselves at the end of the season if the change isn't made at the top.
