    “Go back to a year ago: we’re 11-1 and beat four teams in the Top 10 and he was SEC Coach of the Year. I don’t think that was a fluke. I think coaching had a lot to do with that. We’ll stay the course here. We’ll get it right. We’re not going to let Gator fans down. We want the same thing they want.”

    Not sure "we want the same thing" and as far as "not letting Gator fans down".....TOO LATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    So not only is he trying to win, he's also still trying to fix the program? Not a good mix going into year 4.

    Well, this should piss plenty of people off.

    Let the turned-over couch riots begin.

    Foley threw out an "11-1 last year!"

    classic Swamp Gas, forgetting the Louisville game and all. Who says he doesn't read these forums?

    Well, I guess since the UL loss was technically this year, we are now 4-6.

    Sorry to hear what he had to say, but I wouldn't expect him to say much else, at this point.
    We'll see how the rest of the season plays out, and hopefully JF will have a change of heart either of his own accord, or from pressure within the UAA.

    I'm speechless. Need Machen to get involved IMO

    Then again, it might be a move to keep recruits at bay until afyer the season. Meh, who knows

    It's annoying as hell when people ignore the sugar bowl, if it was a win they sure as hell would count it, reeks even more coming from the AD.

    the big question is does he feel 1000% confident in Brent Pease? I say not.

    I have to trust Foley knows what is best for the University. I don't fully support CWM but I also believe he needs another year. Now (over/under) how many Fire Foley, or possible replacements for Foley threads will be started? :ninja:

    Well, OK. Then it needs to be fixed as Jeremy put it. Not exactly sure what fixed means? I'm guessing some assistants will be gone, namely one.

    But one thing I am SOOOOOOOOOOO EFFING tired of hearing is how some associated with UAA say we were 11-1 last year. Even fans say this some times. No we were not. We were 11-2. The bowl games count. The count on your team record and they count with individual records and stats. We don't need to hide our head in the sand about getting our ass kicked. It happened. I bet you anything had we beaten Lousiville no one associated with Gator Nation would be saying we went 11-1 last year. They'd be saying we went 12-1.

    Bowl games count on your record. That loss at the beginning of 2013 ushered in a series of ass kickings for us in 2013.

    Good for him for backing his man. I'd expect no less of him.

    The reality is, Muschamp will be judged on wins and losses, no more, no less. He needs a signature win in the next 3 games, IMO...

    Right on.

    I'm surprised some people don't say 11-0, in non neutral site games.:roll:
