    I was saying that throughout the game today. Hopefully stubbornness will subside, so we can see change for the good.

    Nothing in our passing game resembles "pro style". I don't even know what I would call it.

    Where are the slants? Throws to the RB out of the backfield? Back shoulders? Fades?

    It's like a 1970s old school ground pound pro-style offense. Not exactly the modern day pro-style offense that has really effective passing games.

    Every route you're speaking of other than flat throws requires big, physical, fast receivers of which we have zero.

    Meyer left our program in shambles, especially at the WR position. Muschamp is building the program for the long haul. We have to have some more realistic perspective here.

    it will take will a couple of more years to get the oline and big WRs he needs for his pro style offense---right now, he's still having to deal with meyer's recruits who don't have it.

    That excuse is getting old now. We have some, but Muschamp lacks the confidence to put them in on a consistent basis.

    Yeah the lack of WR talent excuse is kind of getting old in year 3. I'm watching other teams with much less talent than us execute much better designed plays.

    You're telling me Baylor has that much better talent than us? Whose fault is that?

    Its freaking year 3. The "blame it all on Meyer" strategy is played out. Its time for the current staff to take responsibility.

    We had over 400 yards of offense. If we had just kicked field goals as soon as we got in the red zone we would have won 28-21.

    So was it the offense...or was it stupid mistakes and a failure to execute at critical points in the red zone?

    Really? Let's see, he was hired in January with signing day less than a month later, so he's had only 2 real recruiting classes to transform the program to a system that couldn't be more different than what we used to run. That means that most of his players are true or redshirt freshmen or sophomores.

    Year 3 is usually the biggest transformational year. Even in Spurrier's 3rd season we started 1-2. We're we looking to fire him?

    Some of you guys need to get some perspective.

    What you don't like the run and dud offense that eats clock but doesn't know how to put the ball in the endzone?

    Yes really.

    Let's see the 2010 class was the #1 ranked class in America. 2 of them were already first round draft picks. 2 more of those 5 star blue chippers are in our front 7 right now. Jeff Driskel was the #1 ranked QB in America. Several others were very highly rated. Were some of them busts? Sure. That's true everywhere.

    If the system is so different that it was going to derail the program for 4-5 years to switch to it then maybe we should have implemented it gradually so that it did not disrupt the program so much.

    Spurrier won 9 games his first year after our team had won 7 the year before. He then won 11 games his second year....our first 10 win+ season. Yes last year was a step forward but we did it with Defense. We do not appear to have made any progress on Offense, things we were told would be strengths looked like weaknesses and the same old crap that we did at the worst of times last year we just did again - with more veteran units.

    .....and you want to blame it on a guy who hasn't been in Gainesville since 2010?....a guy who ran the table in his first year at his new school by the way. How come he doesn't need 4-5 years to get it going?

    No. That is an excuse. You can only blame your predecessor for so long and by year 3 the excuse has worn thin. We should see a much better product than what we are seeing.

    Ok go freak out if it makes you feel better. Like I said earlier, I've been very critical of Muschamp for our serious lack of discipline, yes a coaching issue. But I am nowhere near ready to day he was a bad hire Nd the 2nd coming of Ron Zook.

    And just for the record, Spurrier inherited a very good football team and he'd be the 1st to day that. And as for Meyer going undefeated, well with that joke of a schedule, he'd better win every game or he should be fired.

    it was the turnovers that cost the game. The offense moved the ball, the turnovers killed the game.

    quit drinking and posting
