    7.5 million dollars can buy a hell of a lot of relief.

    The depression became noticeable right after the suspended players and Callaway, Scarlett announcement. 9 lost plus the Harris injury loss is like a major NCAA PROBATION penalty.

    I think once that came out Mac regretted throwing the Administration under the bus in public on facilities.

    I would love to have a coach wear shorts, black socks and flip flops to coach UF to a win in the national championship game. Who wouldn't?

    Mac and Muschamp both had bad luck keeping players on the field. Muschamp especially with injuries and Mac with both suspensions and injuries to starters. UF is due for better luck.

    I'll give you Muschamp. He was inover his head. His OC selection was abysmal. But I think he has grown.

    MacShark just stunk.

    Let the Mullen era begin.

    Do you think we underestimated the need for the best Strength and Conditioning coach and the top nutritional experts too? I do...

    How does that help prevent the credit card scandal?

    It doesn't, and I never said it did.

    But if you're trying to "triangulate" don't come off as acting like I said anything along those lines to begin with. Because I did NOT.

    However, If you're wondering what I think about your non sequitur? Then I would never let any freshman on my football team live off of campus with a mob of un-supervised players in a house.

    THANX PEGEEN!
    McElwain's units were explosive on offense during his time at Florida, especially through the passing game.

    Don't take my question personally. It was a question.

    Are you referring to Grier? Totally agree Grier living with the ATO players in a house blew up. You become who you hang out with. Can UF restrict where they live now that the NCAA says they cannot live in all player dorms?

    I think Mullen's strategy of keeping the players busy will help. The NCAA unfortunately limits what you can do. No player dorms like the old days.

    Our players are surrounded by materialism. You hope the teenagers do not make bad choices like illegally using credit cards to get Apple Watches. Don't know which player spread that idea. Mac did tell them do the right thing constantly. 9 players gone is like a major NCAA probation. UF shuns alums giving players cash hand shakes like some of the other schools still do. First time that credit card thing happened here. I think Mullen and his high energy will get the message through better.

    Mac picked a poor Strength and conditioning coach. Even if he picked the right one that coach cannot prevent teenagers from making dumb mistakes.

    How stupid is this rule? I can't stand the NCAA. I say this all the time, D-1 needs to think about pulling out of the NCAA. Have a Commissioner for Fall, Winter, and Spring Sports.
