    Can you imagine Florida with oregon's offense? It will never happen, but damn, we would definitely challenge for the sec title.

    I do wonder how many forget that it was Machen who was closest to and most responsible for the Meyer hire, and that the Spurrier hire happened before Foley.

    We must not let this man continue to hire assistants.

    Changes on offense need to be made, whether that's changing the offensive coordinator, firing position coaches, letting the team open up the playbook, etc. may be necessary (decisions that are above our pay grade) but firing our head coach who has recruited well and has good players commited to play here?

    I know losing sucks but sometimes starting from scratch isn't always the best choice. I know that's going against what seems to be the knee jerk consensus but that's MHO

    It's been painfully obvious for some time that the current HC is not ready to lead an elite program in the toughest conference in America. He may be a great guy but the excuses have been steady since he arrived while the bottom line has remain unchanged . . . and maybe we've even fallen off a bit further.

    Now his most devoted supporters have fallen back to "injuries" and "give him one more year." WHY?

    Get out the checkbook and go after the best coach Florida's significant amount of money can buy. Period. It clearly needs to be done so quit putting it off and do it now.

    You take Oregon's team and our coaching staff -- with our hand-cuffed OC -- and those same players would be nowhere near #2 in the country and looking unstoppable on offense. I think any objective observer would agree.

    I hate it. I can't wait until we're once again the team to beat in the S.E.C. East and fawned over like the Bammers have been. That's OUR swagger they've stolen and I want it back!!!

    Most people know this, I think. He gets credit for Meyer though, since he WAS the AD. He was not the AD when Spurrier was hired...so I gave him a .333 batting average (Meyer was a win)....

    Will may very well get another year.

    Given the calamity of the current year, with the injuries he has had to deal with, he probably deserves it.

    But as Clint Eastwood said in "Unforgiven", "deserving has nothing to do with it".

    Foley is a damn good CEO.
    Which does not bode well for WM.

    OK, Boom is gone. Who are we going to hire? After all, we ARE The University of Florida! The Flagship University...

    Tend to agree here. Our AD will determine if Coach knows how to get us there. If not, well then that's that. But our problem really is offense, and to some extent STs. But I still say mostly the offense because our glaring issue on STs is FG kicking, so the better our offense executes the fewer FG attempts we have to endure.

    That said, the questions are: how we fix the offense; if we have the players to fix it; the staff to coach it. If not, fix the parts that are not where they need to be. To get there may not require a full blown coaching change and with a good OL/good offense we could compete with any team. I would think Muschamp wants an offense he would have trouble defending. Can anyone imagine he wouldn't?

    There is a lot to fix on offense though. :grin:

    He didn't recruit Urban, Machen was the new Pres at florida and he recruited him. Foley was also the reason Spurrier left. He wouldn't support Steve when Steve went to the press over things like when Errict Rhett got hurt by the FSU thug for one. So Foley in my book, when it comes to football is out of his league. I believe he also mishandled Urban the last yr and a half of his tenure. Just my view. All I know is Boom is in over his head. Giving another year of this type of coaching would put florida behind so far, that we will have no other thing to do but total regime change. Start with Foley.

    Lots of fail here.

    1. SOS didn't leave because of Foley; that is as nonsensical as Meyer leaving because Saban chased him off;

    2. Errict Rhett was damn near retired from the NFL when Darnall Dockett tried to twist Ernest Graham's leg.

    3. Hyperbole in the rest.

    All threads degenerate at some point, I guess.

    Normally, but don't tell Ole Miss.

    They meet, that's part of his job. "Expect what you inspect." I'm sure that process will begin soon.
