    Agreed, send him to the end of the bench for the rest of the game and have the "conversation" in private afterwards.

    I'm sure there would be some, but he had already won a SEC. If Mullen had won the SEC last year I bet the noise would be a little quieter. Some fans will never be happy, but championships can buy a lot of goodwill.

    Every coach must adapt. Water is wet. As you note, this article is just regurgitating a lot of the nonsense posted on this forum. Buddy system? Mullen went through 3-4 DCs at MSU (most of which left for promotions) and has made changes to the staff at Florida, albeit not yet the one we all want. Running Trask instead of EJ? Yeah, he ran Trask into light boxes and it was a good call most of the time. The only place this article is correct is with respect to the press conference stuff and that is nowhere near the top of the list in terms of important things for the program.

    Because at the time Uran didn't care that much anymore. He left a mess at UF, a highly polished product at OSU. You just proved her point.

    Can you bench a starter that’s not playing well?

    I wonder how many more columnists are going to write this same basic article, this at least 3 or 4
