There are actually people here, on our premium BullGator Den and on blogs/Twitter etc, hopeful that Dan Mullen will leave. Some here and on the premium side have said that if he keeps Grantham it is proof that he will never win and should go. For those people (apparently under 10 years old.) Here is a reminder. First, something that keeps being forgotten is that Covid took away at least 2 more wins from Dan's record, and playing LSU early as scheduled is likely a win too, as LSU improved late in the season. So theoretically he has had 3 10 win caliber teams in 3 years. Now the history lesson... Year 3 for Dan Mullen: 8-4 season (with two cancelled cupcakes and no FSU cupcake to get to 10 wins) 29-9 in first 3 seasons. (Add cancelled games and it would be 31 or 32 wins) We were two (last second, ball in the air as the clock expired) FG's from being undefeated heading to Atlanta and being in the playoff this season. We then lost to Bama by 6 points. We have made 3 NY6 bowls in 3 seasons. We were 12 points from being undefeated SEC champs heading into the playoffs. We beat Georgia. Now lets recap what Dan took over and had to fix... Year 3 for Muschamp: 4-8 season loss to Vandy loss to Georgia southern. 3rd straight loss to UGA blowout embarrassment to FSU. This left him 22-16 in first 3 seasons. Year 3 for Jim McElwain: He went 3-4. He was fired mid season. Lied about death threats got blown out by Georgia. Got blown out by a crappy Michigan team. This left him with 22 wins in 3 years So to recap. Mullen is 7 wins ahead of those guys, with 2 guaranteed wins cancelled due to Covid, and a 3rd probably if LSU is not rescheduled. He had all of his major offensive weapons opt out of a bowl game, leading to the only loss of more than one possession this season. His 9 losses at Florida include 3 during his honeymoon season which is understandable. But he has lost most of the remaining 6 losses here in very close fashion and/or to really good programs. A 7 point loss to #4 UGA last year. Late INT from tying (national champs) #1 LSU last year. A FG at the gun at #5 aTm this year A 6 point loss to #1 Alabama this year. Played #6 Oklahoma with basically all backups on offense. Tough 3 point loss to LSU this season. (A bad loss no question, but still very close) I am sorry, but this hyperbolic reaction to one blowout loss when half the team opted out is really strange to me. I want Grantham escorted from campus with a security team. I want Dan to shut down the NFL rumors, but in the end he is a top 5 college coach. He has outperformed Dabo in his first 3 seasons. (The same Dabo that took over a better situation and gets to coach in the ACC by the way). We should all be praying by our beds at night that Dan Mullen is here for a decade. /rant. Go Gators.
