    Fulwood, yes, but the guy has played two games in his collegiate career. Unless you have Calvin Johnson, A.J. Green, or Larry Fitzgerald, most teams aren't going to make an inexperienced true freshman their primary target in the redzone.

    Plus, it isn't like we were bad in the redzone the first week. Even against Miami we had plays, like the little stick to Dunbar that we missed. We just aren't going to have a ton of options at this stage and so Pease wants Driskel to be smart.

    Does "designed" mean not having the capability or not wanting to? Unfortunately, I suspect it's probably both.

    Exactly. The fewer the decisions and the quicker they are made, the better it is. The longer the play drags out, the better the chances for the defense.

    Why would it be the latter? Do you honestly think a coach doesn't want to score on a big play? This whole "Muschamp's conservative philosophy" argument is getting downright silly and counter-intuitive. What he doesn't want to see happen is for us to get behind the sticks, go three and out, and fail to flip the field. In that respect, he is like just about every coach in creation.

    Whatever, your post comes across as just message board bluster....unlike you, the coaches aren't so insecure that every drive, every play is some test of their masculinity..

    UF's defense has more than enough grit and toughness, there is nothing wrong with putting the game on your best players and unit...

    20 years ago you must have been posting about Spurrier's "wussy" approach b/c he didn't ram it down any one's throat or try to dominate on the LOS..

    When this team wins 10 games again we will see what is wussy about it. Save this post and come back in November...

    Seriously. The faux bravado of anonymous internet posters who intentionally misrepresent what a coach says and sling trite platitudes out to denigrate them gets pathetic after awhile. It is patently obvious that Pease has in mind taking care of the ball in the redzone, not forcing throws that aren't there, and remembering that three points is better than a turnover if the call you haven't isn't going to work.

    Pease covers his players pretty well. We have the talent to win a lot of games in the SEC but the offensive players are not living up to their potential. JD is the key! If he becomes a star, then we will win out! If not, we will be mediocre. Its as simple as that!

    Completely agree.

    Very disappointing comments from the coaching staff when you add this to WM saying something about successful drives ending with a kick. Kicking field goals instead of getting touchdowns is a blueprint for losing. We may have beat Miami doing that but you don't get to Atlanta doing that.

    The coaches essentially admitting they can't/won't do much better until they get better players is such a cop out. Not very impressive, IMO.

    This makes no sense. How is striving for excellence in any way related to masculinity? And look who's taking about "come back in November", tough guy.

    No one is demanding perfection, but OTOH no one should be accepting mediocrity either. Its shocking.

    Successful drives end in a PAT or FG ... You get that right? Both of those things are kicks ... Correct? You get it?

    Uh take your blinders off...

    Muschamp was talking about the importance of not turning the ball over:

    TD drives end with a kick, the XP...

    drives that lead to FGs obviously end with a kick..

    and drives that end in punts are successful in his mind, b/c he has flipped the field and not given the opponent cheap points...

    An given how UF has lost games these last 2 years, he is 100% correct...

    Where did the coaches say that they were not striving for excellence?

    They never did, you Negative Nellies turned a statement by Pease that they needed to keep red zone options limited into some admission that UF isn't trying to score TDs on offense, or won't even try to get better...

    It doesn't matter what you are playing, it could be Poker, it could be Chess, it could be college football, sometimes you are in a position of strength and sometimes you are not...

    If you want to WIN the game, you need to make decisions that maximize your positions' strengths and minimize its weaknesses...

    That's all the coaches are trying to do.

    The coaches are just trying to come up with a game plan that maximizes this team's strengths

    Once this staff has had 5+ years to fill the entire roster with its players, then they can shoulder more blame for not having playmakers spread more evenly across the entire team.

    But right now, you look at our offense, 3 of its biggest cogs, Jeff Driskel, Solomon Patton and Trey Burton , were perfect for the spread option that Urban ran, but not for this offense.

    So our coaches are working with less than perfect pieces, and there is nothing wrong with getting as much out of your best players as you can, but still slanting the game plan so you put the game on Dominique Easley's and Marcus Roberson's shoulders, and not Jeff Driskel's.

    That gives UF the best chance to win.

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with that, or with being honest what you are doing.

    I guess this is why coaches speak in mindless coachspeak, b/c if they are honest pessimistic fans take it the wrong way.

    Coach Pease should have said "Well, we're gonna line 'em up, and we're gonna punch 'em in the mouth, and our'ns are gonna beat there'ns."

    You would have been happy and your masculinity secure then I guess.

    You might want to catch a replay of the Miami game one of these days because it appears you haven't seen it yet.
