An OC starting his very first game as a coordinator...and they get almost 500 yards on offense? Why?

    And if BN is reportedly hiring an OC after the season, why not now?

    The D seemed to be carrying all the load today.

    If the O stayed on the field longer......maybe the D wouldn't have been as gassed.......

    Because Florida fans are impatient and we run off HoF coaches

    Yep, that’s definitely the reason why below .500 teams can roll 600 yards of offense at the Swamp

    Question, how has BN done with hiring any of his current or past assistants? How about the DCs? How about D assistants? How about the OL coaches? What gives any of us confidence that the next hires whether it will be OL, or ST or OC is going to be any better? Seems he hires familiar faces rather that seeking out the best.
    Yes we need lots of changes coaching wise but his record of hiring has been pretty awful.

    We have issues at LB and both lines. Not seeing any dogs out there. D has been extremely disappointing this year.

    He hasn't played in a while; maybe all season. I dunno. Reasons unrelated to injury. Maybe he wasn't as hyped? Stars are overrated.

    God bless you. Give me good liquors that came from the Americas. Bourbon, Rum, Tequila. I can keep them down.

    I like a good bourbon. Had some Eagle Rare today. I just prefer Scotch.

    Not all 5* are the same. There are some that go bust and we tend to be the ones that recruit our share of them. Most of that is due to us not getting many so when one fails, it's obvious. But Bama has about a dozen go bust but they also have 20 others that don't.

    my 02 cents he just played to their strong points KJ has always been better as a runner and enos wanted him to stay in the pocket at all times

    what i would be more worried about if i was a gator fan is the lack of sacks for u guys Arkansas has the worse o-line in the sec

    it's a mark against Pittman for not firing enos earlier

    Really?? You think coaches under contract a current locations leave during the season?? Unless you are talking about changing OC duties at UF? FTR CN is done in at times by terrible execution by the players, a good play call is blown up by one player.

    The worst part of today was 5 targets to #22 when our best play makers disappeared until crunch time. Slightly better execution would have gotten us to 38+ points in regulation BUT defensively we dont make the play when given an opportunity happened at least 5 times that would have closed the door.

    Otherwise, the madness on here is almost unbearable at times.

    I don’t disagree with patience but we will have to see some progress in year three. By progress I mean win at least seven or eight games. To do that you can’t count on 18 year old freshman. You have to do a great job in the portal. Many other college coaches have made major additions to their team through the portal. We will need to do the same.

    Have no idea why we targeted #22 first play in OT. Ricky and Tre were not a part of OT game plan at all. At some point we are going to have to consistently run the ball.

    Maybe because we have a 12 yo with no experience running a former contender’s defense
