    Spurrier has done magnificent things at sc therefore I agree with his top 2.

    UT had a losing record his last year there, they didn't drop too far. The problem with the Saban comparison is that Saban had already won a title at LSU, that and that its's misleading-- Spurrier, Meyer and Sumlin all outperformed Saban's first two seasons at Bama as did Richt are they all better coaches than Nick?

    Saban and Boom run similar schemes and that is how you compare the length of time it takes to bring in the proper personnel. Meyer sucked when Mullen and Strong left.

    I agree. Boom is far more desirable to have as head coach now than SOS. Better recruiter, better motivator, more energetic, absolute defensive genious. Some Gator fans obviously don't understand what they have and want to run him off like they did Spurrier and Meyer.

    Silly me. I didn't realize that drop-back QBs couldn't run.

    I don't understand what's so hard to understand. Grier is not going to have anywhere near the amount of designed runs that he did in HS or guys like Tebow, Driskel, Vince Young, etc did.

    The impatience is killing many Gator fans. A very good era for UF is starting. Boom is an elite recruiter, an elite defensive mind, and his staff has already proven to be able to field elite rushing attacks despite not having his pieces in place nor having a superstar RB (Gillislee was good, but not great).

    The only area that is a question mark is passing game, but even then with the recruiting this team will have great talent at QB, WR and all across the board on offense. At the very least we will have elite defenses, elite running games, and an offense with elite talent. By default an offense with a great OL, great QB, and great WR would at least form a good passing attack. I think the concerns over the passing game are overblown. We only had last season to judge and one game this season where we killed the clock most of it. When we have an advance passing talent like Grier and company at WR I cannot imagine having anything but at least a good passing game.

    You don't have to run the Fun and Gun to field an exciting offense.

    I know its a heresy to say, but our offense has been boring since Percy left, even with Tebow running it in 09, other than the Cincy game. And with Will I fear it becomes more than less boring as we get into conference play.

    Throwing more doesn't necessarily mean being careless.

    Interesting. Can you cut and paste the comments or direct us to that? I would like to see what Lane said.

    LOL, last year we were on here complaining about not throwing to our RBs enough and looking back now we threw to them too much?

    And as a result (according to some here) will sell out even their cakewalk games due to that sling'n style of offense. Hopefully SC will beat them too and their sold stadium can cheer the rest of the season for that all important (to those same some) exciting style of play.

    Me either. Our stadium would be half empty with Saban's style of offense--according to the wackadoo theory going around. What did his Heisman leading candidate QB throw for yesterday I ask rhetorically.

    Last year we had a quarterback that was not ready for the SEC. With our weak O Line play due to depth and injury issues, he ran scared most the year. He rarely made his reads, opted to run, and wouldn't throw it away due to his success in high school in scrambling.

    Our passing game has been below average since Dan Mullen left. We have had more offensive coordinators and systems in the last five years than most teams have in a decade+. We have got some receivers that are young and more coming in. That's an area we either swung and missed, they are not on the team, or we didn't sign any(Boom's first class).

    Many can't stand the fact CWM has decided to build a team and do the things you can with what we have. It doesn't mean he has no desire to have an offense! We have to win games, if we don't recruiting will suffer, if recruiting suffers we don't build a team that can have staying power.

    Too many coaching changes and lack of skill players have sucked the life out of our offense, it happened over several years, it's just starting to dig out of the hole! Once were on flat ground we will take off!

    It's Great to be a Florida Gator!

    If you're a drop-back QB that can run, you're dual threat. If you can't, you're not.

    Let us hope that Ermon Lane and other recruits watch another game before switching commitments. I am not saying the offense will look like the Fun n' Gun next week, but I do anticipate the offense becoming more exciting down the stretch.
