    So teams like Oregon (I know they're not in the SEC) should be in for a surprise when it doesn't work "long term?"

    I hate the look at the sidelines crap we do on offense. I re-watched all of our games from last year and the slowness of our offense, particularly in the Sugar Bowl, was annoying as crap.

    I'd like to see at least a quick tempo on offense used in games this year... and please let's teach our them the two minute drill too.

    You're singing my song, Tider. Nothing earth-shattering here for people who know the game, but its amazing how many people just don't get this.

    Simply put, when you have a dominant OL, everything works, everything is clean, you can see plays develop, every call looks like a good one (see 1984 Gators). When you have a lousy OL, you can have Kerwin Bell at QB, Emmitt Smith at RB and Stacy Simmons at WR, and everything is a mess, the backfield is full of opponents on every play, everything is rushed, every play call looks questionable (see 1987 Gators).

    Zook recruited terrific talent.

    Then Meyer recruited terrific talent.

    Now, Muschamp recruits terrific talent, but here's what I see as the difference between Coach Boom v.s. Meyer and Zook... Muschamp learned from Nick Saban how to deal with the egos of these high-profile players much better than Zook or Meyer did.

    Saban can get almost the best talent every year at Bama in his recruiting classes and he puts them together and molds them into a well-oiled machine... and I really believe we saw the beginning of that last year with Muschamp at UF.

    We'll see that mindset more this year.
