    He absolutely nails it about Mullen and just tells it like it is folks… this is coming from a former players perspective and even gives examples from his time under Zook with regards to a similar situation that Mullen seems to be in now.

    Any chance you can provide when in the podcast he talks about this? It's 2:20 hours.

    With luck, maybe we can get Mullen, Grantham, and Hevesy fired before the Georgia game.

    Then, we can take a poll of the fans and when AR is chosen as the starter, he can improvise his way to a win over UGA.

    They start talking to him around the 34:30 mark… I listened for about 40 minutes before I had to get off and they were still talking to him… I got to go back and finish the rest of it.

    Good listen. The Show Stopper did not hold back, he left no doubt where he stands. SS is a great guy and does a lot for other people.

    Ouch. Not a lot of positivity in that one.

    Can't remember who said it but the seniority thing was interesting. Dan was used to getting lower talent at MSU and needing time to develop them and now at UF he's trying to do the same thing instead of playing the more talented playmakers that maybe don't know all of the playbook. Also the former NFL GM's comment about AR and what the hell is Dan is thinking.

    He said he believes the seniority thing w/ Mullen.

    Then went all in on Grantham. Said we need changes to meet this "Gator standard."

    It seems like it's mostly his opinion rather than some inside intel.

    Orlando.... Again
    Snell echo's whats said here, Grantham's unnacceptable, the seniority based personel decisions hurt recruiting, and hurt morale. Somethings gotta change.

    Basically everything a lot of posters on this board have been saying. Guess that means the former All-American is a negative nelly; doesn't know what he's talking about; doesn't know football; yada yada yada.

    Considering Mullen came up under Urban, we all assumed the "If two players are equal, roll with younger player" Mindset Meyer has would carry over.

    Wow, finished listening to Shannon Snell.

    But, then I listened to what Brett Hudson had to say on that podcast (he is familiar with Mullen from being at Mississippi State) … i’m really not encouraged at all about Mullen after listening to what he said… Does not sound like Dan Mullen is going to change… Sounds like he was having a lot of these same problems at Mississippi State before he left and that A lot of Mississippi state people were not sad to see Mullen leave. Oh boy!

    Shannon is a pretty low key good dude. He has been echoing this frustration for a bit. Imagine what the high strung guys are saying.

    Sadly this was known coming in, just like the old articles on Grantham.

    I live in Georgia and heard about Grantham long before Mullen showed up… But everything I’m hearing about Mullen now is things he’s always had problems with and it doesn’t sound like he’s going to change and if he doesn’t he won’t be the coach in Florida much longer, and we’re just gonna slide further down.

    Listening to the segment with the Starkville media guy is very sobering, especially the part about John Hevesy.

    Shannon basically said if he can't make the tough decisions between now and the Georgia game then Dan Mullen needs to start looking for another job at the end of the season.

    Then it sounds like Mullen will not be our coach next year. I don't see how he survives this season without making some massive changes.
