    Is there a way I can block Shemar James on here? I question his loyalty to the Gator standard.

    Something has to give. Stability with bad coaching doesn't magically convert to wins after enough years.

    He was never going to start for the Gator in his freshman year, and I expect him to sit behind a ton of Bama 5* stars the next 2 or 3 years. So... next man up... Portal-up, or just take someone from Miami... or FSU.

    No worries. We will be fine. Dan is a master at Portal Kombat.

    Probably pissed because he knows Grantham won’t be back and was promised he would be the super star blitzing, fly all over the field guy that Grantham loves. Now that’s in jeopardy.

    Maybe James realized he didn’t want to play for Grantham too. Lol, who knows.

    But if Mullen makes a great choice in a new DC… James might sign with the Gators still. But the longer Mullen waits the more damage that will do.

    So make a DECISION!

    Even with firing TG now, it isn’t like we can go sign a DC and he is in there immediately. We also aren’t permitted to talking to another DC if he’s at another school until after the FSU game right? I forgot how that works but the moment the clock strikes zero after the FSU game, the announcement of TG not returning HAS to be made. Forget about ESD when it comes to high end defensive kids, they aren’t coming. We gotta NAIL this hire, and a few other hires that SHOULD be made, and salvage the class come NSD

    We have several LBs already on our team that weight more than 210 lbs. He would still have to wait to get on the field in Gainesville and certainly not at Bama... forget about it.

    He might even come back to us (not that he his really gone right now) once he figures that out. He's looking around, sure, wondering about our defensive coaches. In the end I hope he's a Gator, but I will not lose sleep over it.

    Meanwhile hours ago, in a Athens car dealership parking lot, it was announced that Georgia just flipped 5-star defensive lineman Mykel Williams from a commitment with Southern Cal, to make a pledge to his in-state Bulldogs.

    Cheating in recruiting, crooked officiating, paying coaches millions of dollars NOT to coach,... Why do I keep watching college football? I guess it's just an addiction. I should try to kick the habit and just start watching college basketball - no cheating, no crooked officiating, etc.

    So what we really need is a sugar daddy with billions of dollars and a wink wink nod nod from the ncaa, then we can compete for hardware.... nice.

    Doesn’t matter what short term damage it does to get rid of tg, it’s simply gotta be done. Preferably sooner rather than later. I was a “trust Dan to do what needs to be done” guy until last year. Hell I’d been saying to bring him in since champ got fired but the list of things I’d have to ignore to still feel that way has just gotten too long. I’m hopeful he will change some of it , irrationally, but I’m not optimistic in the least
