    I get the anger (I never wanted Mullen and predicted exactly this), but he’s not getting fired this year

    What good is it to recruit an elite player and not play him because he’s not a junior or senior? This isn’t the 1970s where you could recruit a kid just to keep him off a rival team. He doesn’t manage his own talent.

    Dan Quinn is better. He probably would even bring in Marquand to run the defense. Can't get any worse....

    I think there’s a money aspect here as well. Mullen’s buyout is $12M I believe. Would the UF brass even allow SS to fire Dan and pay him to go away? I would, I don’t know if they would. And I have a suspicion that the UF brass doesn’t care that much about having a championship caliber football team anyway.

    This tired argument. When a coach underperforms then you must name a possible replacement accomplished as Nick Saban to replace him.

    I think our guys are plenty athletic and fast. They just don't seem to know where to go or how to wrap up. Too many athletes and not enough football players. It's great to be able to cross train all these guys, but for Christ's sake, give me a stout middle linebacker that can fill a gap and stuff the run. David Reese was the last true middle linebacker we had with middle linebacker instincts

    Hard pass to Dan Quinn. Those who know know.

    We aren’t hiring a prostitute solicitor. Any fan who thinks so is a moron.

    But that doesn’t mean he shouldn’t be. The school is going to cost itself money hanging on to him. The financial setback firing him is not that big with the SEC money coming in, but losing your fanbase because they won’t spend money or boosters stop contributing have much longer negative affects than a coaching change. Mullen helped fix the loser culture Muschamp and McElwain created but Mullen’s mediocrity has to be overcome next. He’s not willing to overcome his own mediocrity, he proved that to us last year.

    If you watched the games you would see a number of freshmen on the field.

    I hear u and echo the sentiments but it’s painfully obvious we’re missing those 3-5 absolutely top shelf studs a cycle. Those type talents cover up a lot of ills

    I think Dan can learn and turn this around. First step is fire Grantham.

    Since you asked our opinion on replacement then my answer is very clear. UF football is a big machine that should hire the best of the best at all times.

    I personally think recruiting is not hard if you are personable and you hire great recruiters under you. If you want to quit messing around and take down the Alabama empire then you convince another great football coach why Saban loves being coach at Alabama. The reason why is because if you have a great recruiting staff and are at one of the top 8 programs in country it is a rigged and unfair system. As opposed to Saban in NFL with equal draft picks Saban is able to coach at AL with 4 first round picks, 4 second round picks, and 4 third round picks while most others don’t. Hence rigged system.

    Since Stricklin is already in LA then his answer is right there. Go see Sean Peyton who now no longer has his franchise qb and give him $10 million a year and surround him with experienced sec recruiting staff. Sean Peyton is the answer. No more messing around. If you want to take down Saban hire someone that will not even flinch when doing it.

    Great. But the most important position on the field had a freshman sitting on the bench.

    No, you must name someone with a reasonable chance of being better than Mullen because firing him just to fire him isn't a good move for the program.

    Not counting on DM canning his friend. That's why DM needs to go.

    I suspect buyout money plays a part as to why SS won't fire DM. However, SS can insist on changes and with DM's arrogance, maybe he will start looking and move on.
