    What would you suggest? A bad year and you want a change of coaching I take it? I think these kids fit the UF style of play. I hope in a year or two you will feel differently. I think they will succeed.

    look we have not progressed for years, it is not just a bad year. It is us not getting past a certain plateau. I dont know a lot about soccer. I know several people on here that do, they have said very avg class. So if they say very avg then I will go with them. Now if they somehow over achieve awesome. But the girls I know who play club ball in the Charlotte area who are highly recruited wont even give us a look. Two of them are huge Gator fans, but say its a no for them no matter how much offer them...a joke there at the end

    Program has been stagnant and declining for a while. Meanwhile FSU has become a force and the SEC caught up. There have been no signs of it changing.... it is time for some new blood.

    As much as I love Becky and appreciate everything she has done for this program - I agree a change is needed. Florida use to run the SEC every year easily, but the other programs have caught up.

    If they won’t fire Becky maybe ask her to bring in some new assistants.

    What is stagnant? Game tactics? Recruiting? Player development? I know wins/losses are and we haven’t advanced much when we get into the NCAA tourney.

    FSU now has more soccer titles. Time for a new direction. We used to recruit players who would get a look on the USWNT. Those days are over.

    Everything. UF hasn’t been to the College Cup in 17 years.

    Burleigh used to own Florida and the SEC and other programs have blown by her.

    They were awfully close to College Cup last year. When you start 11 and I believe 5 got season ending injuries this year that hurts. So I guess we need to recruit international heavy like FSU. I know a few 2019 and 2020’s and we should be good. Their solid under the radar kids who bleed Orange and Blue.

    Under the radar kids is the problem. We used to get future USWNT players. Now we don't even come close.
