    My question would be why call the play in the 1st place? If you are going to throw, throw long. We had no business throwing into the teeth of the defense. I would be the one to ask Mullen that question. Yeah that was an awful throw but I would question the reasoning behind calling that play in the 1st place.

    Well.... it was ugly. But 1-0 is better than 0-1 any day.

    Man...we may have a tough year. I just don't see how anyone can defend Franks staying QB now. He just isn't good enough. Jones or Trask have to be better...this team has a ton off weapons on offense and it's being wasted right now.

    I’ll take it over Miami, but it definitely gives us a lot to work on and figure out.

    They actually give out a full win for that performance? Wow!

    And no team has suffered on offense the past 10 years like the Gators.

    First game folks. A lot of these are sloppy. They aren't going to be in mid season form until I guess mid season. This is a good start.

    Yep. They did not play well, but at least it was a win.

    It as a hideous win...but it's counted in the W. column like any other W. (and not an L).

    ...and it's the first game of the season--lots of kinks to be worked out; that's why....cupcakes....

    Steaming pile of shit would be all that ugly...and a loss to choke on.

    JMHO/FWIW.

    You rely on Franks to make the right choice. He chose poorly.

    Lots to work on. We won in spite of our poor play on both sides of the ball. Miami may prove to be a really quality win by the end of this season.

    Two weeks and a lot of material for the coaches to yell about.

    Yeah, it was ugly....

    BUT... it was a win. I'll take it..

    One nice thing...

    Noibody had to comment about our offensive line playing badly, because, for their first game, they played a pretty good game.

    Franks was protected most of the time, where the Miami O-Line was absolutey terrible, and they actually had a bit more experience.

    Kudos, Hevesy!!

    I think he saw both players & his mind can't process that. He just cannot make decisions.

    Franks needs to tone it down.
