UF is easily last in YPC in the SEC this year, averaging 3.9 Yards per rush. Vanderbilt is second to last at 4.3 YPC. I know that a lot of people are upset about how UF lost to LSU this weekend, more so than they are mad about losing in general. But the fact is, and Muschamp has said this since day one, that you can't win in football without being able to run, and stop the run. UF has done OK this year stopping the run. Yeah, LSU had 175 yards rushing, but they have a top 10 offense, and you had to figure they were going to move the ball some. They only ended up averaging about 4.5 a carry, which is better than what they've done most of the season. UF's defense's have been consistently some of the best in the country, and I don't think that's going to change because Muschamp was a great defensive coach when he took the job and he is obviously one of the best in all CFB. The issue is offense. And I think that Muschamp is turning the corner, but in his first 2 seasons on campus, he did NOT recruit the offensive side of the ball well, and we all know it. Some people have brushed that off, but we are seeing the results on the field now. Muschamp missed at RB in 2011 and 2012, missed at WR in 2011 and 2012, and missed at OL in 2011 and 2012. Ironically, he did well at TE, from a recruiting ranking perspective, but neither has contributed. The 2013 class is already contributing at the skill positions, and I think they will contribute more as the season progresses. Right now, you have Meyer leftovers that are driving this team. Now, Muschamp and his staff tried to correct the mistakes with Juco's, bringing in reinforcements on the line, but in general, they haven't done enough to put together an SEC caliber Oline. Hunter Joyer (now that Driskel is injured) is probably the biggest offensive contributor from the 2011 and 2012 classes. Matt Jones has done OK, but don't we all wish we had Mike Davis right now? So now the anger and the "muschamp is not the guy" stuff starts happening. And while, I admit, I have never been sold on the man, I think as a fanbase, we essentially have to toss out the first two offensive recruiting classes, and chalk it up to inexperience. The 2013 class was clearly better, he won his battle for his WR, and his RB's, and he had a ton of OL recruited (5, plus 2 transfers). I think at this point, we need to give him 2014 and 2015 to put an offense together. I know people aren't happy about that, but this is what happens when you hire an inexperienced coach. We could cut loose after next year if he doesn't turn the corner I guess, but I think that would hurt the program. He is clearly a defensive mastermind and I think you just have to give him time to get the offense together. Because if the offense comes together, UF will be truly scary. Just my 2 cents. I think we just need to sit back and just enjoy what football season we have left, and hope the gators overachieve down the stretch, but I doubt anyone is going to be happy with the results at the end of the season. Let's just hope the 2014 offensive recruiting class gives us more hope.
