    Penalties killed that game not play calling.

    Terribly conservative. Wasted drive before half. Didn't allow AR to do anything in game with his play calls.
    Lacked his normal creativity scheming guys open. Mailed it in for the most part.

    1. If you don't think we were out coached and out schemed by KY in that game, you really need to rewatch it. We might win without the penalties, but it doesn't mean we were NOT out coached and out schemed by KY.

    2. In you honest opinion, since offense has nothing to do with any loss we had, Mullen would be 45-0 with 3 NCs right now had he hired the right DC?

    Nope... not feeling the "reset" for any reason. And under no circumstances should we have "fundamental change," please...

    “we can’t get a better coach than Muschamp.”

    “we can’t get a better coach than McElwain.”

    “we can’t get a better coach than Mullen.”

    1. My original reply had nothing to do with style points. It was about winning or losing. So you agree about the penalties but way to move the goal posts
    2. What a stupid question. My reply was to games we’ve played. So yes I believe with a good DC we would have been SEC champs last year and undefeated this year to date.

    At what point do we not start new threads when others just like it exist?
    What’s the earliest we can blow this whole thing up?

    I'm sick of all the negative nellies and debbie downers on this page. Why does everyone want to fire an AD, a coach and coordinators mid-season? Especially before the program's biggest game of the season? Stupid, stupid and stupid.

    Mullen is so close, it hurts. He needs to hate losing so bad that he will take every game seriously. That’s what Saban does. He can’t stand losing.

    I just think the facilities thing is way overrated. Do we need the upgrade? Yeah every top tier school has a stand-alone football facility, and plenty of mediocre programs have them too. I can’t see it getting us one additional recruit, it’ll only prevent us from losing guys we’re getting today, tomorrow.

    When you go to a job interview and tour the place and meet the people you’ll be working for, what’s more important: the size of the cafeteria and the free food/coffee, or the people you’ll be working for and the job they want you to do and how much of a chance you have to grow and make more money? Recruiting, like business and life in general, is a relationship game. Great recruiters can overcome bad facilities. Poor recruiters don’t magically become good ones once they have a nicer building.

    I am looking forward to the next excuse our fans come up with once we have the facility built. I’m sure we’re not competitive enough on NIL, or maybe stipends are too small, or maybe we aren’t building a space port on campus to do lower earth orbit flyovers of the stadium on a visit? Who knows, there’s always one more tangible thing we’ll need to improve recruiting because people don’t change (both fans and recruiters).

    We can do a hard reset after this current staff is replaced by the Cincinnati staff.

    It’s a discussion board with different perspectives. Are you the thought police? Of course we all want to win vs UGA. And no, nobody is expecting to fire the AD and DM before the game

    the fact is, the program that we all love and support is at a serious fork in the road. Tough decisions need to be made and soon.

    Not sure that was playcalling. We had almost twice as much yardage. AR would have put it in the end zone and the play that cost us the game wouldn’t have mattered so much. I think if AR was playing, the returned kick may have got Kentucky within two scores. Emory really struggles with a short field.

    So Kentucky’s master plan was to get a kick six and make us false start to kill our drives all night. Now that’s scheming.

    He’s the HBC, so wins and losses are on him. 2-6 last 8 vs P5
    Offensive playcalling is great but unfortunately measured by wins and losses.

    Overall decision making and Kentucky game was on his play calling/offense.

    There is plenty of evidence that shows Mullen doesn't have an issue with the offensive side of the ball. He's basically worked a miracle from where we were for nearly a decade (pictured below) where he is struggling is defense and since he an Offensive guy he personally won't improve the defense but he personally can hire the guy who can. But of all CDM's criticisms his offensive acumen is the least concerning to me.

    "On the national stage, Mullen became the first head coach in FBS history to win BCS / New Year’s Six bowl games in each of his first two seasons with a program. Florida beat Virginia in the 2019 Capital One Orange Bowl, and routed Michigan in the 2018 Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl. The appearance in the 2020 Goodyear Cotton Bowl marked just the second time in school history that the Gators have made three-straight New Year’s Six bowl games.

    Florida’s 10-win season in 2018 also marked the program’s second-largest turnaround (in terms of wins) in school history.

    One of the key aspects of the turnaround engineered by Mullen is the drastic improvements on offense.

    The 2020 offense was among the most prolific in the country and program history.

    The Gators led the nation in passing offense for the second time in program history, as they averaged 378.6 passing yards per game (which also ranks fourth in SEC history). Florida finished the season ranked ninth nationally in total offense (509.8 yards per game), marking its highest national finish since 2009 and the Gators were tied for eighth nationally with an average of 7.28 yards per play, finishing with the third-highest average in program history. Also, Florida’s six games of 500-plus total yards against SEC opponents tied a school record set by the 1995 Gators.

    The 2019 season featured the most wins (11) in a season since 2012, and marked the eighth time in program history to reach that mark.

    A major component of the quick turnaround has been Mullen’s imprint over Florida’s offense. In two seasons, the team has posted seven games of 500-plus total yards. In 75 games from 2012-17, UF only met that mark six times

    True, now to be fair name a coach who hasn't lost a game he was suppose to and should have won
