I know I'll get a bunch of "sunshine pumper" ratings for this, but I truly believe when Jeremy hired Will he knew there were going to be some growing pains to be endured by Gator Nation as Will grew into the position. I also think one of Will's primary tasks was to clean up the UF football culture. To that end, I think he's making substantial strides. From the notable decline in off season arrests to even something as small as this quote from Austin Smith, linebacker recruit, say a lot to me about how much progress has been made in this arena which cannot be measured in W's & L's: " “I got to hang out with Dante Fowler and Alex McCalister all weekend,” Smith said. “The players took me in like I had been there all my life. Coach Durkin assigned me to those guys and they took me under their wing. They were talking to me about doing everything right and how you don’t want to drink and you don’t want to smoke or anything like that. They were good role models to me and my teammate.” Yes, the 11-1 season may have given Will a false sense that things on the offensive side of the ball were going better than they really were. Should he have known that immediately? Ideally, yes. But, was this one of the aforementioned growing pains of a first time head coach? Probably. The important thing is Will learned from it. I understand the skepticism of people who are not convinced Will is the right person for the job; however, I am hopeful this season is the 8-4, or 9-3 Gator Nation and Will need for him to stick around. If it is, I think in a few years we'll look back on this time and be glad we weathered this storm together. Moreover, it may even result in some coaching stability and the restoration of a positive culture around our football program that we haven't enjoyed since Spurrier.
