    I never understood the blind support for the Muschamp hire; it was simply idiotic. I was so disappointed when Foley announced him as our new head coach.

    Just wondering - why would Briles or Sumlin leave their present programs for UF? Or any other HC similarly situated for that matter? Especially when they look at their predecessor and see that he only got 3 years to turn a broken program around (and one of those years was an 11-2 season).

    Meyer nearly lost to Vandy at home in 05' if I'm not mistaken....that Vandy team was far worse that the team today.


    4 turnovers and yet again Offensive almost doubles the oppositions offensive output.


    I'll be glad when this hell season is over........not really sure who is out there to go get.

    Money. Not to say UF will pony up more than TAMU, but that is the main reason Bielema left Wisconsin for Arkansas.

    I'm not going to detail all the facts about the state of our program when UM left.
    But... attrition, transfers, bad seeds being kicked off the team, recruiting players toward the team he wanted to have on both sides of the ball, hiring competent coaches, barely having 60 scholly players, are just some of what needed to be 'fixed'.

    So please tell me how could anyone 'fix' all that in 2-3 years?

    Not part of the question as to why did Meyer come here.

    But yes UF is a step up from TA&M doubly when Manziel leaves

    Well...for one thing...a competent, experienced head coach would have hired quality assistants and position coaches from the beginning. If you need 2-3 years to figure out whom to hire, you don't deserve to be a head coach...at least not at Florida.
