    In my head--- UF
    has it though?

    2 decent games before Georgia. I prefer to call this a hellish roller coaster.

    That was my main concern from the beginning. You have an unlimited budget and pay everyone as such but bring in guys who should be making a quarter of that salary but they are youre "reliable" friends from a low level program. It was telling.

    Given our schedule next season - zero chance Napier makes it to year 4.

    we can’t beat the worst teams in the league.

    First 3 possessions of 2nd half were atrocious. Punt punt punt against the worst team in the league. Failure after failure.

    Coaching staff is clueless. Rushing 3 over and over. Throwing short of the first down marker, and coaches failures(special teams unit running on field)

    Today was Kenny Guiton’s first game ever in his career as a OC & play caller. Arkansas put 39pts on the board today on the road in the once vaunted Swamp after only scoring 3pts at home against Miss State in their last outing. I would say he did okay..

    Sadly agree with all you said.
    BN isn't the answer.
    Same coach speak and on field result for the last 13 years, nothing has changed

    I said 3 years ago we were heading for Stanford and Northwestern. Well we got there folks… but we have academics for our non- student athletes .

    Except I don't remember any of Spurrier or Meyer's teams getting worse as the season went on. Do you?

    By culture, do you mean drunk driving, reckless driving and racing in town, strip bars in the wee hours of the morning, all supported by school staff and resources, cuz that seems to work well for them.

    I thought they crushed their enemies, saw them driven before you, and heard the lamentation of their women.

    Bottom line UF is screwed with BN huge buyout. He knows it and he knows he is set for life. Fire him after year 3 or 4, he is not only wealthy but will find a mid major job somewhere. We excel at making poor coaches rich. Meanwhile UF will once again shell out big bucks it can't afford to pay for once again another failed coach. Only this time imo the AD needs to likewise take a hike if things continue to sour.
    The only other option is to ride this out and hope that somehow UF can turn the corner but it's going to take a long time imo. With the price of tickets and mediocrity on the field, I wonder how many fans want to watch such a mess.

    It just flows so smoothly with all of the other horrible takes I see here. Yeah, our academics are driving our football team into the ground (as we have the #3 recruiting class on deck).

    he will still get paid a buyout after 4 years. Just less than this or next year.

    Worst team in the SEC is Vanderbilt by far. The rest you said I agree with to an extent, just wanted to make that point.

    Wing, I don't want to argue, but this connection to our football team and UF academics is not legit. UAA is a separate legal entity. While they do fall under UF's umbrella in certain things--such as you can't rape co-eds at will-- they are in charge of football and other sports.

    And good academics is a good selling point, not a bad thing.

    Now, getting the players into school is another subject.
