When SOS was 1st hired at S.Car.....I stated that he would intend give UF plenty of headaches in the future...I was banned for that...of course passions were high at the time...a couple of the mods got VERY defensive...
I wish SOS nothing but the best...but I wouldn't want him back....til he's retired of course...
Eventually UF will get back to the top...just a matter of when...probably be while though...
SOS is about my age, which is closer to 69 than 68. He ain't coming.
I've been yelling and cheering for the Gator football team for the past 50 years, and don't intend to stop now. It's the players that I cheer for - not the coaches.
Not to mention beating his biggest rival consistently.
Just a little less parity in the SEC 1990-2001
SOS has done that at USCe, not so much here. He never thought too much about beating SOW, was more worried about SEC Championship Game.
During the FSU game I realized that FSU was making me feel like Spurrier made the whole SEC feel for a decade. 20 yard pass, 20 yard pass, 30 yard touchdown. Thank you very much, now go receive the ball so our defense can blitz your QB because you are already hopelessly behind.
No more than Spurrier was not responsible for losses when Rex, Dougie or even Danny kept giving the ball back to the opponent. Did you hold SOS accountable for those games? I didn't. Ditto when he had Stephen Garcia at USCe.
Sooner or later, the player has to take responsibility for his actions. I don't blame the coach for turnovers unless the coach called plays designed to be high risk pass plays that got picked off.
UF is a bigger football school make no mistake. They've reached their zenith as a program and it's good for them- it doesn't compare to our Heisman winners, SEC championships and MNC.
We won't be down forever though some act like we will. I thought a lot of fans saying "It's great to be a Florida Gator" even when we were losing says a lot about how proud of a fan base we are despite the poor season
And it still hurts.
Yes usce is having a better season that us. That hardly makes them a bigger football school than UF. Would they care to compare overall resume's and trophy cases? We are down now, but we will be back.
I think Spurrier also brought this "winning" thing to UF.
You're right. I was suggesting it was new to the Cocks... And now they are happy.
Not until we get a football coach.
Maybe so but Spurrier had a very tough schedule when at uf.
The incredible thin was in 12 years he lost to only 1 or 2 unranked teams.
Neither Meyer or Muschamp can say that
Columbia should have been revved up this weekend. I mean if not this weekend, when? They were playing their in-state rival and on the cusp of going to Atlanta for the first time (if Mizzou had lost). It's the equivalent of our 1990 for them - almost there, but not quite, for a program that's almost always and afterthought.
When Muschamp gets our program back to that, our "football school" atmosphere will return. With the right OC and OL hires, I am hopeful the time will be short until that happens!
The interesting question, to me, is what will happen to SC when Spurrier hangs it up? Talk about pressure to make the right hire!
CWM is not getting us back to anything. Assuming he stays for a while, we will consistently be a 7-6/10-3 team.
Your expectation or your hope? You don't think he is EVER capable of duplicating his 2012 season?
Everyone is entitled to his opinion - and those believing Will is hopelessly in over his head may be right. However, I am one who believes whether he can be successful is yet to be determined. We can agree to disagree on that.
The point of my post, really, was that when UF gets back to its old form (regardless of who is at the helm) our game day atmosphere will return also.
We were a play away from the BCS CG last year. With a weak offense.
It's a big if, but IF we make the right coaching staff changes on offense in particular, there is no reason Champ won't have us playing for championships. We'll have to see how the staff shapes up, and how well they keep recruiting flowing.
