    I was shocked that he didn't take 1 direct snap. Pease is just foolish. He bags plays that actually work (diamond formation & direct snap to Taylor) thinking he will have the other team prepare for it and then the surprise is we won't do it. Sure hope Pease is moving on.

    I agree the offensive coaching and production has been terrible, but a 6/8 carry difference between Mack, a junior and Kelvin, a frosh, is not of huge consequence. We were not exactly ripping off big runs with either player. There are bigger problems to consider.

    No one can run the ball with a glorified walk on at QB. The 13 yard run was a nice misdirection play that we waited till the last quarter of the last game of the season to use. Curious to know why.

    Can't wait for that day. I have never hated a coaching staff as much as i do this one. Even more upsetting that they will still be around to destroy this program even further. Heck, i'd even take Rod Marinelli over the likes of Will Muschamp.

    More absurdity from the KT contingent. He's a RB in a blowout who wasn't being particularly effective. How many carries is he supposed to get?

    I think this has been the most frustrating part with Pease calling plays. The plays that work disappear and hardly gets called and what never works, he calls those plays all the time. Mind boggling!!

    Kelvin has a lot of work to do in the off season to be the man. I dont think he will ever be a breakaway runner because he is just slow. He can improve his game to explode thru the holes to get in to space to use his shiftyness and make big runs. If he puts in the work he will get a lot of carries with Matt being the 3rd down and swing pass back.

    I'm still on the fence as to whether KT is the gamebreaking back that a lot of people seem to think he is based on his last name. But I do know he is clearly our best offensive option on a team devoid of it.

    This is true, but every year we Gator fans need to pick a guy who is underutilized and scrutinize every snap that doesn't involve that player, and convince ourselves that player is the missing link and our coaches are idiots for not playing him every snap.

    And I'm a big fan of Kelvin, but I've seen this dance before, from Moody to Deonte Thompson to Kelvin.

    What do you expect from a coaching staff needing a touchdown on the FINAL play last week NOT to have a SINGLE receiver in THE endzone.....seriously...
