    To be exact it was from one game in 2012. One where Muschamp admitted to involving himself in the playcalling to establish our team's toughness out of the gate against a team we were going to beat regardless.

    Muschamp just needs to give Roper the keys to the Offense and let him drive.

    You don't believe he called plays, but I believe he did. I may be wrong, but if I am please show me proof.

    Never mind that Foley's job was and won't be ever near in jeopardy.

    I have a hard time understanding all those who support muschamp and belittle those who don't support him any longer....my question is, who's fault is it we look terrible on the field and are losing games regularly ?

    Assuming the Roper hire does indeed save Muschamp, what happens when Roper leaves in 2 years for a HC gig? Does UF's future depend upon hiring the right OC every 2-3 years?

    IMO, if Roper gets to do his thing and we are successful, he will be offered HC positions and will take one sooner rather than later. I see this hire as a potential (that is all it can be at this time) growing experience for Muschamp. I can't see a scenario where he is constantly fighting with his OC for toning down the chance-taking and the team being successful. The ball is really in Muschamp's court: he either learns to trust his offense and he learns to acquire and nurture talent on that side of the ball or this last chance effort is going to blow up and we all move on to new horizons.

    pretty much. it would be much easier to just hire a HC who knows what they are doing.

    Get Chris Leak groomed to take over. Glad he's still staying around Gainesville.

    Unlikely. If Muschump wasn't fired after GA Southern and Vandy, then he won't ever be fired.

    Almost all HC's except guys like Spurrier depend on their assistants to some degree. You think Saban calls his own offense?

    No but he's the mastermind of everything within that program. And therefore they are more insulated from the typical disruption caused by inevitable assistant coaching turnover.

    They just plug in a new offensive coordinator every four years or so and get the same exact results pretty much.

    It's not just some coincidence. Saban has created that environment that fosters success and consistency.

    What you don't want is a head coach that is so reliant on his assistants that he is completely at the whim of their performance. A bad hire will ruin the team and a great hire will leave and another replacement will be needed, which exposes the risk of bringing in another dud, not to mention the churn of a new system, etc
