    1. Gurley threw punches and should have been out

    Reality: Who cares? Stop whining about refs. We were dominated. Win the game on the field vs UGAs best players and stop looking for the easy way out


    2. Our team is super talented, it's the coaches that are failing them

    Reality: I read other teams message boards, and literally every team in America thinks they are talented and its the coaches fault. The truth is this team as no National Title QB on the roster, nor does it have National Title caliber playmakers at key skill positions like WR and TE for example. There are no Jordan Reeds or Aaron Hernandez's or Percy Harvins on this team. And there sure as heck ain't no Tebows, Leaks, or Wuerfels. Tis teams issues go deeper than a coaching switch


    3. Pease is to blame ....he's the problem

    Reality: every coach in America is allowed to hire their staff and surround themselves with good coaches. I like Muschamp, I liked the Muschamp hire, I think he deserves another year....but it is his ship. It's his hire of Pease. It's his team, his coaches. He better make some big changes before he gets the axe himself. This is unacceptable for the largest, best public university in arguably the best state for football. 2-3 years to get some receivers and improve the offense and its regressing statistically every year

    Fire everyone. Except maybe Joker. He can be our next coach's Charlie Strong.

    Sorry, but either the whole staff goes, or the whole staff stays. This is WM and Foley's ship. They both should go down with it this year. If Gator Nation loves this type of football, keep them.

    It's not that simple. If foley does not fire champ, champ must fire Pease

    Yes, let's fire the AD who's made us competitive in pretty much everything because his football operation made 2 bad hires and won 2 national titles in the same decade.

    Agreed. If you blame Pease blame the guy who hired him, or maybe the guy that hired Weiss who also was to blame before this. If you need great coordinators just to be competitive at Florida, you are in over your head.

    I see what he means, but one can draw a lot from that statement. I think he meant that Meyer kept Strong around and it turned out to be a win for the program.

    Foley has made some great hires, and some misfires. He needs to hire a new OC NOW. And keep feelers out for a HBC.

    Foley brought us Donovan. For that he can stay forever.

    Disgusting.

    Reality - we don't have the talent on offense to compete for an SEC title. Our most talented skilled players are all true freshman.

    Reality - 2012 was the best offensive class we have had since 2006.

    Reality - our inability to call plays and get snaps off with more than 1 second left on the play clock is a major problem offensively and does not speak well of our coaches.

    Reality - running the wildcat (out of the blue) in the middle of a 20 point rally makes you question Pease.

    uf o&b fanatics blame every loss on anything except bad coaching and bad play--they assume Uf is really the best team in the u.s. but they get hosed by bad refs, bad luck, bad karma or bad food

    He has absolutely blown 2 hires in the program that funds every other program. 2 bad hires in 10 years this institution is not a acceptable

    So you think Hargreaves, Purifoy, Bullard, Fowler, Kelvin, Ahmad Fullwood, Kent Taylor, Trenton Brown et al all suck?
    Funny, I thought Auburn's whole team sucked until Malzahn showed up to actually call a few plays.

    Never said that. You are putting words in my mouth.

    Every team worth a crap in Amerca has a few good players. Naturally, the Gators have some good ones too.

    But it takes 22+ guys to win or compete for a National title. UF has major issues at QB, playmaker, OL, LB, safety, coordinators, HC big game experience

    Just as many holes as they do talented players

    I don't know that naming Muschamp's young recruits is helping your argument.
