    He says "are we getting better?" meaning we should be improving, that is the aim. Well Dan, we are not. Each year this team has been slipping. Yes, we won the east last year over a not very good uga team and with the help of KT and KP. Heck, we wouldn't have won the east had PF's not gotten hurt and who knows then if KT would have even started. You mention injuries, every team has them and if you and your coaches could or would recruit better and develop players, injuries would not be such a problem for you. You are staring at a 4-4 season this being your fourth here and with current recruits being anxious, next year may not be very different.

    Kind of a dry personality. Motivation skills...Do I feel like DM can fire up a locker room? I would have to see it.

    Excellent post. Praying your last two sentences are wrong though.

    Exactly. People here spin whatever comes out of his mouth to fit their negative agenda. Hell some people openly admit they don’t watch the pressers but will be some of the first to pile on.

    He didn’t use injuries as an excuse for anything other than why guys have prepare every week in practice . Quit making crap up. Try listening,

    When the head coach says "we're decimated by injuries", no matter the context, that's using injuries as an excuse for poor performance. Don't fall for it.

    When is something someone says a reason and when is it an excuse?

    I wish the reporters would ask Dan directly and he would answer directly.

    Is AR getting first team reps in practice? Do you expect it to change?

    What are you going to do differently on defense because that doesn’t look like the Gator standard you’ve been talking about?

    How’s your confidence? How’s the team’s confidence in this coaching staff? Do you feel we can beat Georgia?

    You keep mentioning attention to details. What have you done to address it?

    Do you see any improvements in this year even if the results don’t show it?

    Especially when it was a reason why backups should practice everyday like they were starters and had nothing to do with losing.

    When you being honest an telling the truth. LSU is decimated, absolutely true. Us, not so much, Injuries are part of the game, do we have much more injuries comapring to the previous years?

    Did you listen to the PC because nothing he said about injuries had anything to do with losses.

    I want Coach Mullen to succeed but just one example of a bad deal that was a bad scheme or NOT adjusting was the way LSU ran the SAME freakin' play against our D and it decimated our chance at victory.... Talks about 3 plays being different and we could be undefeated but would have different "adversities".... OK but how do you NOT change a scheme against a play that is killing your D maybe 10-15-20, times? Just sayin'..... He is very smart so he HAS to see the glaring problems. Avoiding the obvious is not the way for addressing accountability. Hope he does better these last few games.
    GO GATORS!!!! BEAT UGA!!!!

    Obvious troll. Nobody can be that easy to please and so eager to defend the indefensible unless it's their damned job.

    I watched it. He’s making excuses and saying we are 3 plays away from being undefeated. That’s garbage. He needs to take responsibility and fix the issues. And I’m considered a pumper because I’m generally optimistic.
