    Regale? I snickered.

    What would it matter what names I put out there? I have a strong suspicion you would do everything in your power to pick it apart and would somehow demean each name.

    Get your own list if you want one. My opinion of hiring someone WITH head coaching experience is just that, an opinion. I think that it is a necessary criteria when hiring a football coach at UF. After Zook, I did not think we would ever go down that road again. It was a mistake then and IMHO, it was another mistake.

    If we can't execute our philosophy against Toledo, maybe there is something fundamentally wrong with it? Btw, I think what we decide to focus on in practice to be part of offensive philosophy too.

    I'm pretty sure Moore was fine against UT and Kentucky too btw. I'd have to rewatch the game tape to see how he did against Ark.

    Our o-line has been suspect since day 1.

    Well, there isn't a list of any experienced, viable, interested, willing, and in the JF salary range, that we could have grabbed when we hired WM.

    So let's reinvent the past and UF / JF's hiring parameters, to dis on the coach he did hire.

    I snicker in your general direction, at your opinion.

    Really since Dunker was suspended since he was expected to contribute slash compete for a guard spot, and especially after Green was lost for the season. Halapio tearing his pec hurt us as much as him too.

    Well sumlin and strong appear to both be doing a better job who were "available" back then. Whatever that means. Feel free to pick them apart, I'm not going down that rat hole.

    But it doesn't matter. We didn't get them so I'm not concerned with them. I'm concerned with who we have.

    The fact that you are concerned doesn't concern me very much.

    Look at recruiting. We're bringing in explosive skill players and big, highly recruited OL. 2013 class was excellent, and 2014 class is shaping up to be a great follow up to it.

    Adding explosive skill players is how Bama added explosive plays to an offense that only varied from our current offense in the fact that it already had a very solid OL, whereas ours has not. And as pointed out earlier, they didn't effectively make that change to where they could execute big plays regularly, until year four.

    When we get a reasonably healthy mature OL (don't have to play guys 30lbs under weight or with torn pecs), and with players playing in position (don't have guards trying to play tackle), then these explosive skill guys will have a chance to make plays.

    As mentioned earlier, I think Muschamp was also being direct when he said we need to simplify. We've probably been too complex and had too much installed for our own good... exacerbated by the high turnover in starters this year.

    For some reason many fans continue to ignore the number of new starters plus the number of injuries and attrition that hit the team this year.

    Injuries and attrition happen every year. A good coach must prepare for them.

    You prepare for OL depth years in advance.

    What's the point of this?

    I am disappointed we hired someone without prior head coaching experience. Do you think that I am out of line? Do you think I am being disrespectful?

    Here is what I see from you and a select others...a poster will state their OPINION and then the poster is attacked, insulted, maligned, etc. because a certain group refuses to allow the sharing of thoughts or ideas contrary to their own. Instead of you trying to counter my simple thought...again I feel we have the resources to hire an EXPERIENCED head coach...you feel the need to attack me personally. Why?

    Thanks, I will pick them apart.

    Sumilin was 5-7 at the University of Houston, in 2010. So that's "up and coming" enough for you ? You think JF would take a chance on that kind of "experienced" resume' ? I laugh out loud.

    Strong was 7-6 at Lousiville, in 2010. That's a track record as an experienced head coach, enough for him to be hired away and brought to UF ?

    On a team that was thin on OL to begin with because of legacy recruiting issues? Muschamp gets credit/blame for one of those years (getting DJ and Dunker in 2012), but he inherited two years of recruiting that netted only four recruits... and NONE of them are healthy contributors today. 2010 and 2011 recruits should be the bulk of our starting OL, and NONE of them are contributing.

    You need a sanity check on what the coaching staff is dealing with.

    He may get to show off in 2014 that he has learned how to coach both sides of the ball. Three straight years of this offense points to coaching IMHO. The excuses are running out and I think Muschamp is also on the clock. It is simple...win or be replaced. 4-10(or is it 11) vs ranked opponents shows me that someone is getting outcoached regularly. We hired a complete unknown at head football coach. It was a huge gamble that I do not think paid off. Though he may get next year to prove many of us wrong.

    So you admit we have a problem, but are laying the blame on the prior administration? I didn't lay any blame, I just stated an opinion on coaching in general - a good coach prepares for injuries and attrition. Do you agree? Does a good coach make sure to shore up these problems and anticipate injuries and attrition? If you agree, then you shouldn't blame injuries.
