    Besides $$$, why would he come to UF as an OC, when arguably he could get a shot as a head coach, at a major ?

    A former Baylor OC, how could you go wrong?

    Better yet....can he defer to Boom and everything he wants?

    You wonder why Weis and Pease were hired until you realize what you're dealing with.

    What we're dealing with: wild speculation as to how the football program at UF operates.

    Who's your idea for O.C. Just out of curiosity?

    Isn't Briles the real OC there? Not interested.

    Yeah, this is another guy where you have have to wonder how good would he be without Briles who is clearly the offensive mind at Baylor.

    Why do posters think that ANY coach in ANY postition is available to come to UF and wants to work in Gville?

    Can we just go ahead and declare that literally no offensive coordinator does anything and it's all really the head coach?

    Might save us some time.

    I find it amusing that there was a thread that asked who would be a good O.C for Florida and I believe nobody actually gave a name of a candidate. I give a name and it immediately gets ripped. The questions become 1) don't you have the testicular fortitude to put your choice for all the forum to see? Or 2) do you possess the mental aptitude to think of an O.C. By yourself? Let's see some names of candidates, gentleman...orangeblue, I believe you've been fair in all your posts and appreciate your commentary.

    Would you really qualify this as "getting ripped?"

    I don't have one. Sure, whatever Oregon is doing would be great. Or, maybe we could get Spurs back to do an OC gig. :laugh:

    At the end of last year, several high-profile OCs were suggested to be next-gig head coaches:

    Chad Morris: Clemson Offensive Coordinator; Phillip Montgomery: Baylor Offensive Coordinator; Brent Pease: Florida Offensive Coordinator.

    I know it's only from Bleacher Report, but . . . .

    I think it's safe to say that our playcalling in the last 2 1/2 years hasn't looked like what we saw at New England, Notre Dame, Kansas City, or Boise State.

    You know, I'm interested to see what Pease can do with a full deck. I know that's going to somehow be labeled as an "excuse", but I really would like to see what he can do with a healthy, mature, cohesive unit.

    While some use the played out term "blind faith" to describe a subtle confidence in the abilities of Pease and Muschamp, you really have to look at their body of work prior to their arrival in Gainesville. Why was Pease at the top of Alabama's list? Some on this board consider the Texas and USC (head coaching) jobs to be a better situation than being at Florida, and Texas certainly had enough "blind faith" in Muschamp to make him the HCIW. Pease and Muschamp have excelled in almost every walk of their respective profession(s).

    And then you have to factor in their ability to bring in top prospects like Kelvin and Kent Taylor, DRob, Fulwood, Colin Thompson, and now we've got guys like Cook, Lane and Grier who Florida stands a very good shot at landing next February. At the very least, you have to be impressed with the talent Florida has waiting in the wings.

    It might not show until next season, but I just can't help but think that we'll be able to move the ball under Pease pretty well once it starts to come together.

    Maybe a little over the top, orange, and I certainly mind being challenged. Having said that, it's hard to compare apples when only one apple is being offered.

    Great. Hire the 3rd oc in 4 years so the offense can start from scratch again. He's already swung and missed twice are we ready to strike out already?

    Look how Auburn turned their once-great program around in one short year.
    Who cares how many hires we have if we get it right the 4th or 5th time?
    Should we wait until we've lost 5-in-a-row to Georgia to make it look better?
