    Frankly I can't believe we are even having this conversation while so many of Urban's recruits are still playing. Muschamp has had only 2 real recruiting classes and most of those players are just not going to play right away. Will Grier comes in next year to boot.

    Simply put, yes, we can and must trust and support our HBC.

    We have a bunch of Muschamp's recruits contributing on defense, but not so much on offense. Are we not doing a good job of recruiting? Are we not doing a good job of developing players? Do talented skill position players not want to come to UF?

    I think that questioning the talent evaluation on offense is a valid concern. The defense rocks and has younger players stepping in and contributing. The offense doesn't.

    The missed on WR's in 2012. So more of missing on players than bad evaluation in recruiting.

    Knee jerk? :huh:

    Using season records as benchmarks in evaluating a coach is pretty standard stuff.

    And, long-term trends over several seasons are more compelling than short-term "trends" - particularly when the short-term trend of wins vs losses applies to 2 different teams.
