    11-1 with that offense? Look its ok to be upset about this game but honestly, put it in perspective.

    Muschamp had a broken team and now we have a GREAT defense and an offense that needs to stop shooting itself in the foot.

    I think it is possible to come up with 5 better coaches but getting them to UF might prove difficult. The grass is not always greener.

    Just for pure conversation sake, I think James Franklin is a hell of a football coach. It is early and who knows where he ends up but I would put him on a watch list for 2-4 years down the line. I wouldn't take him over WM today but he has a lot of upside.

    A defensive minded HC and an innovative OC is what will take us and any team to greatness. Just gotta find the pieces to the puzzle and get those two to mesh together. Not sure if ours is doing so, cus the results on the field aren't being produced

    And we could possibly have the worst offense in college football. I know the problems Muschamp inherited but there is absolutely no excuse for the way we played the last two meaningful games. After two plus years, our players still can't execute basic offensive plays, we still can't block, we still commit a ton of, mostly dumb, penalties and our players still act like thugs.

    This whole game begs the questions: what did they ACTUALLY do during spring and summer practice because it wasn't practicing fundamentals & discipline! Boom said Driskel looked sharp at practice..if that's the case, what's his version of "sharp?" This is a putrid excuse for football at my Alma mater and if this keeps going on, the empty seats and the boosters closing their wallets will ensure my statement ala 2004.

    We have a great offensive coordinator. If he were allowed to run his offense.

    Yes, at least that would get Luke of our backs...:)

    I would take Charlie...because he leads the defense and has an innovative pro style offense...

    Amen. Too bad he is being handcuffed by a scared coach who wants to control turnovers from the sidelines.

    Better head coaches? Please. Not enough memory on your phone for that list. Petrino or Strong would be nice starters though.

    Muschamp went 11-2 last year and 4-2 vs top 10 teams. That is a hell of a year. One implosion this year (which was eerily similar to UGA last year) does not a bad year make. If UF can stop shooting themselves in the head (they would have won had they simply shot themselves in the foot), they could win the next 10 games. The D is nasty. Nasty. Let's sit back and see how the next few games go.

    I'm not sure where we are going but I'm beginning to have that same kind of sick feeling I had when I realized Zook wasn't going to be the guy.

    I'm not sure I ever want to see this offense play again.

    Correct me if I am wrong but you don't like Muschamp because he hasn't won a trophy right? Which won did Petrino win at Arkansas? What was his record against top 10 teams?
