Has a coordinator ever had fans in this much of an uproar?

    As far as this kind of uproar, no. Never. But that is because of the proliferation of the internet. As far as who's had a year this bad, I'd say Lynn Amadee, who used Emmitt Smith as a decoy in 1988, and our all-time worst OC, Whitey Jordan in 1989. In our biggest game of the year against Auburn, we threw six passes, completed one. For six yards. Fortunately, both were one-year wonders.

    Anyone remember that Gator Offensive Play spinner meme that said "Tim to the left, Tim to the right, Tim up the middle?" Was that Nuss?

    I would think you’d remember 95 since you would’ve been about a senior. After giving up 62 to the cornshuckers fans weren’t too happy with the DC. Of course he didn’t survive.

    Fedora got a pass. I wouldn’t call him good at that stage of his career. Just mo. We did have a great offense that year When Wynn and ciatrick Fason were the running backs.

    Did we hate Grantham last year? He needs better players look at UGAs defensive roster

    if he can’t recruit well that’s a different story I guess

    No. Mullen had Percy and Louis. Dazzler had some studs, too, but he and meyer said that those guys were not invested, so Tebow carried it more under Dazzler.

    Jabba the Hut's deficiencies have been doubly exacerbated given that our offense was absolutely elite. Even with a mediocre defense, we would be playing tonight in playoffs. People are pissed given this was a completely wasted opportunity and one we likely (hope not) will not see again for a few years.

    Dazzler was at least as awful as an STD but penicillin was not strong enough to get rid of him.

    Well, you’re 47, so a young guy. But at 77, I remember over the years we’ve had coordinators who were not too popular but I believe with such a wide open and so big internet readers we have now days, Grantham’s probably the first to such a position as worst ever.

    But to this day, I know this will be about a HC, but the most outrage by Gator fans I remember was when in 1971, Doug Dickey became HC of the Gators! He took the brilliant and awesome “Reaves to Alvarez” passing game and made them adjust to the “Wishbone” offense! It worked great for Texas and Oklahoma in the Big12 but not in the SEC! Dickey killed the Gators’ “Reaves to Alvarez “!

    Go Gators!
