    I have gone to the last 3 games. The offense is not getting better it is horrendous. We scored 16 because Miami went into a silly prevent and gave us the last TD. It is as bad as it was vs Louisville.

    TV focuses on diffent things at diffent times. In person you see a total level of disorganization, disfunction and total lack of cohesiveness.

    Simple observations.

    When Jones and Brown were in a traditional set, Miami had its LB sneaking up to 3 yards from the LOS, a safety came in tight and its outside guys pressed to support the run. The LOS was a 1-4 traffic jam. Play action worked because Maimi sold out to the run. They had no respect ofr JD passing. Running Jones and brown up the middle was silly because we were outmumbered and Jones and Brown have No Speed to make people miss. OL are dropping like flies out of exhaustion. Muschamp and Pease are killing those kids. 2) JD runs the read option well with the 3 RB daimond set. JD is terrible in the pocket and has gotten no better. Showers can run. The most Frustrating thing about UF is the decision makeing on offense. The offense would run daimond a few plays, get positive mojo, and the next thing you know Pease would go to traditional power or a no back set with JD throwing. Dumb. The biggest collective grown from the Gator crowd at the game was Burton at wildcat. everybody in the stadium knew he was keeping the ball. 11 guys came flying across on the snap. It just killed momentum.

    If any of the posters here think the offense is really getting better, go to the games and watch without rose colored glasses. It is getting worse.

    Look, there is no doubt the offense needs to improve. The discipline needs to improve. We are hurting at several positions: OL, we have no TE which is huge, and a QB who does not have to be a stud, but does have to not turn the ball over. We were hurting from several years of not being able to land great WRs (mainly no one wanted to play in Meyer's offense unless they were small, speed guys). We are now bringing in excellent WRs.
    The recruiting is there. We now need to develop guys. Our defense is ridiculous. We now need to maintain our defense while building our offense. The formula is there for a CONSISTENT winner. Some of you guys brought up teams that maybe could get lucky a year, but are not built to consistently win. We are being built to consistently win. Alabama consistently wins. They have the formula down. Stud recruits want to play for teams that give them the best shot at the NFL. Alabama does that. We are getting there. We are NOT there yet, but there is definitely promise. Again, that awesome Texas A&M offense, we BEAT THEM last year AT THEIR HOUSE, with our supposedly garbage offense. So take your great offensive team. Great defenses can shut down great offenses. You win with defense first. You win on the road with defense. You need to have some offense, yes, but you don't need that type of offense to win. Our OL was finesse and we are still in transformation along the OL. Our QB makes far too many mistakes. He plays conservative in the redzone and we win that game on Saturday. Heck, we probably beat Georgia last year if we dont turn the ball over as much. We have to protect the football on offense. We don't need to be stellar, just dont lose the game on offense. Granted, we need to improve on offense, but it does not have to be a machine running up scores on lesser opponents.

    Exactly right.

    And to whoever said defense first is how you win games, not even true. As the saying goes, defense wins championships once you get an offense. You cannot win if you do not score.

    Our defense is going to have to play like the Ravens of 10 years ago to win games. The D needs to score points for UF to win.

    1. The OL play was inconsistent against UM at least partly because of the injuries.

    4. Disagree. We need a stud at QB, not just a QB who is a "game manager" and avoids mistakes. QB is the most important position on the field. Teams that get to the NC game generally have outstanding QBs (Tebow, Bradford, Newton, McCarron, the Oregon QB who was injured before the NC game, etc.) There's occasional exceptions (LSU?) but for the most part in today's college football you need a stud at QB, not just a QB who avoids mistakes.
