UGA is a MUCH better team, but that’s on Dan

    We lost this game over the last few years.

    Recruiting
    Development
    Coaching selection
    Personnel selection

    We should be facing UGA and Bama on near equal standing. Win some, lose some. Instead we are badly outmanned

    Dan needs to fully revamp his style or we need a new coach. Our program should be similar to our peers, not far below.

    Dan wants to “play call” around those weaknesses. But the reality is he’s not a good gameday coach. His record as a big favorite vs big underdog shows that.

    We will need a new coach then. I don't even expect Mullen to change his tone in the post game presser so the idea that he's going to revamp his style seems like a pipe dream.

    I think I’m officially done with Mullen. This game demonstrates the difference in talent. If he can’t or won’t recruit, let’s find someone who will.

    We need a new AD. The football program and the basketball programs are all struggling. So much money and so little ROI.

    Superior talent will win games against great “playcallers” 9 out of 10 times

    Would LOVE to see someone ask him again if he was out coached in this press conference and see how he possibly spins it...

    Mullen is absolutely going to tell us how the whole game was decided in that 2:30 stretch to end the 1st half, how UGA scored 21 points in that stretch, and only had 6 points otherwise.

    Book it.

    Uh, the 21 points AR gave them.

    Take those away and it’s a different game.

    People don’t want to put any of the blame on our quarterbacks.

    With the contact situation of the assistant coaches it would save UF some money by making a change this year as opposed to waiting until after 2022

    I wish they would run AR more, as he will be very prone to mistakes passing the ball, but we have established absolutely no passing threat to open that part of the offense.

    I never thought I would see the day that Jim Harbaugh would learn his lesson and Dan would not.

    Georgia is better, but we just have to find ways to help our opponents beat us.

    Dan Mullen isn’t the answer and I’m off the Mullen train completely, he doesn’t have the makeup, will, or decision-making to win championships, and he never will.

    Well, it's true. Doesn't change the fact that Grantham sucks and we need to recruit better as a program but in today's game that stretch is what sunk us.

    They are a better program and it ain't close. A lot of wishful thinking from our fanbase about Kirby not being able to win big games. He was an excellent hire for them. It sucks.
