    Dan Mullen - Football Coach - Florida Gators

    Dan was 44-9 as Offensive Coordinator for the Gators , including two 13 win seasons. Add that to his 21-5 record as our HC and he is now 65-14 when calling plays for UF offense. He is also 7-2 in Bowl games as a Head Coach. Maxwell Award winner as National Coach of year while at MSU.

    We are very lucky to have him.

    I mean we had 550 offensive yards and we didn't play our best game, that alone speaks volumes about how much we have improved as a program.

    How many games did it take us to get 550 yards of offense with either of the previous guys???? And Dan is doing it with a kid who - as we have heard so often - hadnt started a football game in 7 years.

    Dan wasn’t my first choice. I admit I was wrong. I’m all in at this point. Love how he and Megan represent our program.

    Not sure if the issue is the DC, or an overhyped secondary, or misusing the players we have through scheme, or all of the above...

    Even when Florida has been great on defense in the last decade, I can’t remember the last time they were excellent from top to bottom in 1-on-1 tackling... yet, it seems like we’re constantly putting that kind of pressure on our corners and safeties which are suspect in those situations....

    All of that said, how can you not be optimistic... and how can you not be stoked on Mullen... What an excellent first two years... sign me up for another dozen years with this guy, yesterday.

    Dan Quinn's defense was as good as we have ever had. Hardly ever gave up a big play and tackled well. Everything was earned against that defense

    I know our record. Are we an elite team? If you respond yes, then I’m not the one who has been hitting the bong. We played a glorified HS team yesterday and the game came down to a onside kick. Do you think we are elite? We’re you tense when the kicker lined up? Did you think “not again!”

    I have high expectations. I don’t think we are a top 10 team. We have not dominated anyone in a few years. I think our offense is very vanilla. Our defense is good, but how many 3rd and longs did we give up this year?

    as for Mullen....do you think our team came out last night fired up and ready to play?

    just food for thought.

    Some here would only approve of CDM if he was 30-0 and would still bitch about something

    I have to laugh at some of you snowflakes. I posted I am not impressed by Mullen or Trask and that we are not an elite team. Somehow this offended some of you and you felt it necessary to attack me personally because I posted my opinion and observations. How pathetic. ......and I’m still not impressed.

    You said we are not a top ten team. Name 10 teams that satisfy your requirements.

    I'm not even a sunshine pumper but your take is.....interesting.

    huh? Where did I post anything about any requirements? I said we are not elite. We are not top ten. Hell, we are about #5 in the SEC (Auburn would win every other game).

    does anyone think we are an Elite team? Seriously.

    You stated terms for what you perceive as worthy of top 10, ergo...requirements. If you can't articulate what a top 10 team is then you are basically just complaining.

    No one claims we are elite. You dont even think we are top 10. Again, Mullen is the only coach to win new year's 6 bowl games his first two years. We are 21and 5 in two years in the toughest conference in the country.

    You would get laughed out of any discussion if you said you weren't impressed to any football coach, sports announcer, football player etc.

    It's pathetic
