    Maybe or maybe losing just sucks. I’d hate to stand up there after that garbage we watched last week. I don’t like speaking under good circumstances but after this shit season, it has to be uncomfortable when he knows things are really bad.

    Well, it’s one thing to be uncomfortable and disgusted by what you saw, it’s another to be uncomfortable and not want to be there.

    That would be me. I’d want to tell everyone to f themselves, I have work to do. No way to talk his way out of this shot show. Go win some games.

    You guys must be masochists.

    I almost never watch press conferences, especially after a loss. Not into coach speak, just W/L.

    4-star CB Julian Humphrey backs off Florida commitment

    The 2022 recruiting class is falling apart. We lost a 4 star LB last week and dropped to #18 in the nation. This loss will drop us even further. No matter what cred Dan has as a "QB Whisperer", if he can't recruit at an elite level this program will never produce at an elite level under his leadership.

    Both were iffy. We need to win some games, get some momentum and hit the road hard. Still some time yet. Other teams have limits on numbers so, we should get our share. lol

    What's the basis for this notion of DM seeking an NFL position?

    Ive seen it here and there, and the vid about the LSU game, dude says "they had it on good authority..."... but i havnt heard of any sources that were in a position to buttress the suggestion.

    I think he had his agent work it, but got no real interest from the NFL.

    He's open to the possiblity. That's substantially different than seeking or looking for--its also instrumental as leverage for contract extension and pay increase, which he obtained (IOW, he doesnt deny interest, on agent's advice, so he can use as negotiation leverage). I dont read much into that.

    Seems like reverse engineering to explain dejection/frustration after disappointing losses, rather than actual reason that lead to the causes of the frustration.

    Jmho/fwiw.

    But thank you for the link/source.

    I’m open to the possibility of me becoming an NFL coach. If the Twitterverse wants to get wind behind the idea and legs underneath it I’ll just see what happens. I can’t control all of that I guess

    It explains his demeanor after these losses. Dan should be equally as frustrated in looking to solve the issues.

    Florida Recruiting: Other teams have limits so we'll get our share.

    It was reported Dan and his staff prefer vacation much more than recruiting

    Not getting into NFL, and slipping further from this purported dream...and therefore he presents as aloof in the wake of heart wrenching losses...

    Nope. Still not seeing it.

    Im seeing perhaps a bit of complacency.

    He got the raise and extension. Wife is happy. Life is good. Doesn't seem to have anything to prove. No hunger, no chip, no ambition to loftier achievements, like the NFL.

    That's my read anyway, fwiw.

    Please explain why Mullen is obligated to publicly state who STARTS at QB. There is no reason for him to do that; let the Mutts have to prepare for both.

    That is incorrect sir and I’ve already corrected u. I made it clear that your spin on the word “decimated” was horse shit, thus the flack u we’re giving the poster u were berating was horse shit. Minimal amount of football aptitude is all I pray for with some of u

    lsu the last 2 years , aside from being incompetent against anyone but us evidently, was DECIMATED by injuries. That would be the correct use of the word in terms of player availability. In dans case it’s an excuse because the narrative doesn’t even come close to fitting. If ur hobbled but on the field ur not decimated.

    Mullen has started Emory in every game so far this year; Kirby may very will expect him to start again.

    You don't know.
