    Die, I can never blame the coaching staff for multiple turnovers. Sooner or later, we have to hold the player accountable for his actions. Even great players like:

    * Danny Wuerffel had days where he threw many INTs. Which game was it when the Gators had 7 INTs (Kentucky)?

    * Shane Matthews lost to an inferior Miss State team in 1992 with multiple INTs, throwing himself out of the Heisman race.

    * Rex Grossman had horrible games under both Spurrier and Zook.

    * Chris Leak had bad games, particularly in 2003 against Ole Miss, and a critical INT against Miss State that ultimately cost Zook his job.

    I am not going to trash Jeff Driskel, but it was HIS decision to throw into multiple coverages.

    As far as development goes, however, you are dead on. We just don't see the level of development of the offense at Florida like we see on defense. But I am wondering if that has anything to do with the players as well? I honestly don't know...

    Wormwood, allow me to complement you on a reasonably articulated concerned post.

    Is Nick Saban the minimum standard? Or are you saying AJ McCarron is not a star QB?

    My stance is that you should never use the term "vis-a-vis" vis-a-vis football :joecool:

    Where a team is ranked in Week Two is utterly irrelevant. Miami will probably finish ranked, barring injury.

    C grade--a few big wins, but some big losses, including below par performances against louisville and miami, two teams uf should beat on talent alone

    Unlike other Florida coaches who lost to unranked teams including Steve Spurrier, Urban Meyer and Ron Zook.

    We beat four top ten teams last year.

    Year, that's a few big wins.

    Yeah Spurrier lost to one unraked team in 12 years. Don't think he is a good example to mark your point.

    Unforgivable.

    That is unranked at the end of the season. How many were unranked at gametime?

    1991: Syracuse. Being 7-4-1 the previous year, I doubt they were ranked.

    1992: Miss State. Almost certain they weren't ranked at the beginninig of the year, finishing 7-5 in 1991.

    1993: Stassen's consensus has Auburn at #42 going into 1993, after going 5-5-1 in 1992.

    1997: Stassen's consensus had Georgia ranked 32d after going 5-6 in 1996.

    2000: Stassen's consensus had Miss State 31st in 2000.

    2001: Stassen had Auburn nowhere in the top 43 in 2001.

    That is six teams in 12 years.

    Miami went 7-5 in 2012, not really much different from most of these teams. They will probably finish the season ranked.

    End of the season would be the better gauge, no?
    Miami was ranked in one poll and just missed the other so they kind of were a ranked team.

    OB, that's one of the most courageous statements you've made lately. You're a fine and level-headed poster but I find it very difficult to believe - based on those first two games - that this offense is capable of anything that remotely resembles respectability. If it isn't too much trouble, what are you basing that statement on? :huh:

    In my view, if a team is ranked by either the writers or the coaches, that team is ranked. But I think a better barometer is the end of year rankings. Too much can happen between August and January...

    DIdn't say preseason ranking i meant at the time we played them.
    Doesn't matter the prior year.
    Auburn went undefeated the year after going 5-5-1
