    who says that he HAS to go with the starter even if he says anything publicly about who’s starting? Just because he says one thing, doesn’t mean another thing cant occur when we trot our O out there on the first possession

    It's AR.

    Remember when Mullen benched Feleipe Franks during the Missouri game in 2019? He wouldn't say who was starting against South Carolina that Saturday either.

    Took us until a slip before the bowl game to know Trask had it.
    EJ throws with a strong preference to receivers curling/facing him.

    AR will throw over the receivers' shoulders if they have a lead.

    (Started to say more, but will leave it to the great defensive minds of GC ... I'm more of a student here)

    Can't believe Mullen is still trying to play mindgames after losing to some unranked teams and getting punked by Ogre

    You're splitting hairs. So why say anything at all? Riddle me this.

    Who cares if he names one or not. Issue is too many folks are done with him.

    Besides, we could be talking about all the things EJ does better than AR

    how you think players feel hearing that when their eyes telling them the same things they see we see?

    Ahh, so the so called "expert" on all things Florida Gators, says Mullen should lie to Kirby and the media about who starts, then argues with me about how he shouldn't lie to the players about who starts. Ha ha ha. I already posted this: he will tell the players who starts, but not the media and Kirby and I got push back from Justindimwitt, with exactly the same "they can see with their own eyes" meaning Kirby would know who we were starting.

    You can't have it both ways.

    Nice rescue try for dimwitt, , but Mullen isn't telling Kirby who he will start, and as I posted, he shoudn't. But the team will for sure know.

    A football "guru" like you should get this.

    Isn’t this sort of a good thing?….in the past DM has acted like it’s a forgone conclusion EJ is the starter.

    So far his track record has been that if he doesn't name the starter prior to a game, then it WILL be EJ!

    He could announce that he’s gonna start Emory just to throw off the mutts a little, but these “Gator fans” would burn the place to the ground

    It really doesn’t matter who plays the first two series.

    Like what? Not throwing interceptions? Running the ball? Driving the offense for touchdowns? Throwing the ball late to his first read?

    I am all ears if you can come up with something EJ does better than AR on the field as a QB.

    If it’s Jones, they play 3 yards closer to the LOS. 8 men in the box. If it’s Richardson, they are just 3 yards derper

    That’s not how Dan’s system works. Players earn PT based on practice performance and taking care of business off the field. Now, he could say I expect AR to take first tram snaps in practice.

    One unranked team and it’s the same team that “Ogre” coaches.
