    It's kind of funny how people view things in retrospect.

    No way that happened. I wouldn't be surprised if both had more interest in Pease after hearing of there other's interest though. Either that or Pease managed to convince both that he was really Peterson.

    Nah, Saban just made a mistake, wouldn't be the first time- he had Major Applewhite as the OC for a season or so before realizing his mistake there. Pease is an average OC but nothing special, his track record is middle of the pack with only one good year-- the one where he pulled an Addazio and was promoted from position coach to OC at Boise to "run" an offense led by the best QB in school history and multiple NFL players at the skill positions.

    I wanted to vote a C+ or B-minus. Not quite a B, but not purely average either.

    Lots of hope and belief they will grow better as a team of coaches. Lots of hope Pease will open up the offense.

    I have faith in CWM. Champ proved he could win big games last year, he has already proved he can recruit.
    He just needs to get the right mix on offense, which we all know has been inconsistent and the weak point of this team.

    Still kicking Addazio. After doing a decent job, he is now at Boston College, and already won as many games thus far as the Eagles won the entire year last year. someday, some of you will finally come to grips with the horrible fact that the OC for the Gators from 2005-2010 was really Urban Meyer, just as the de facto DC since the Meyer Era has been Muschamp...

    I still don't really believe this, given the changes in the offense that happened between coordinators.

    He's won essentially the two gimmes they won last year (one weak in-conference, one D1AA game).

    Let's not forget the guy went 4-7 last year and got a promotion.

    Addazio was put in a very tough position here. I thought there was a good chance he'd do better has a HC, then the "OC"/Asst HC/Recruiting Coordinator/OL coach that he was here. Good for him that it's working out.

    There was no real change. Florida had no one to replace Percy, so it was the Tim Tebow Show in 2009, and in 2010, Tebow was gone. Meyer was all over the offense, on the hedphones talking away.

    Remember the Gator Offense spinner Two Bits created? Dan Mullen was the OC then, and he was loathed. Remember PD's absurd rant, that he knew more about CFB offenses than Dan Mullen?

    We don't know yet, do we? Kinda like thinking Miami being a mediocre team this year. We'll find out how well BC does by the end of the year.

    He went 4-7 because (a) Temple transitioned from a mid-major to the Big East, an AQ conference. As bad as people want to think the Big Least is, they went 15-3 against mid-majors last year, and (b) they lost a ton of starters last year. Football people saw what happened and made the hire.

    I disagree. There was a fundamental change in the playcall both as it related to passing and running. We all but abandoned the pitches, misdirections and reverses and stuck almost exclusively to read option. The passing game entirely lost deep routes and drag routes. There was a tangible, palpable change in the way we ran the spread option offense.

    I voted C. Still a chance for this staff, and I'm pulling for Coach Muschamp. Really need for Pease to find us an offensive identity that keeps defenses a little more off-balance. At this point, I think it's fair to say that Muschamp's future depends on Pease.

    I vote a C.

    Muschamp is a great D coordinator.
    Pease is a good O coordinator.

    The problem is we have no head coach. We have great talent and an excellent scheme.

    However our team has no discipline and motivation things that come from a great head coach. Careless turnovers, stupid penalties and playing down to your competition are a mark of a badly coached team.

    It appears our worst fears have come true with Muschamp as the head coach. He is a great D coordinator but doesnt know what he is doing as a head coach. Unfortunately with the USC and UT jobs both coming open this summer we will likely have to deal with this for another year.

    Give the guy a chance. Muschamp is a good coach. UF will be fine.

    Muschamp is a great head coach, it is a miracle what he has been able to do with what he was left with. urban left this program in awful shape. the problem isn't muschamp and if he was smart he would get rid of pease this offseason. everyone who has watched the dominance of the SEC knows that every national championship team had one thing in common and that is defense. right now we have the best defense in the country and i think this offense will not shoot itself in the foot the rest of the season and things will be ok. but pease has not been able to show that he can be creative enough to adapt to the players that we have.

    who inherited the least talent:

    spurrier from galen hall
    zook from spurrier
    meyer from zook
    muschamp from meyer

    I think muschamp had the most issues to deal with in terms of talent problems, lack of discipline...

    Well from the poll results, there doesn't seem to be a lot of noise in the system...and that's a good thing.
