  1. NFL guys are great and all...but you don't know if they can recruit, or deal with kids. We've gotten a proven recruiter, ST coordinator, and someone who APPEARS to be a very, very solid line coach. His lines have performed well. He coached Fletcher Cox into a 1st round pick, etc.
  2. Oh yes! I heartily agree. Muschamp needs a LONG run in Gainesville to...properly ascertain his coaching ability. Yes, that's it. You would be doing Gator nation a tremendous disservice by ditching Muschamp and attempting to get someone like Charlie Strong to come back...Any chance for a Muschamp 10 year extension?
  3. Because we beat you head to head, and had an identical SEC record. You were only ranked higher than us because we played in the SEC Title game(that thing the two best teams in the SEC do at the end of the season, you know...), and lost. Over the same amount of games, UGA was ranked ahead of UF. If you weren't good enough to play in the SEC title game, you shouldn't go to a BCS bowl over a team that did. Now, UF should have gone to a darn good bowl...and certainly deserved a BCS bid over teams like NIU, etc, they shouldn't have gone over UGA. That was simply a consequence of our incoherent vote/ranking system. Now, I certainly AGREE that UF's resume is somewhat impressive...but along with those wins against a Texas A/M team that hadn't found itself, an offensively impotent LSU, and USC on their worst day in years, you had very close victories against non BCS conference teams. UF wasn't as good as their record, and it showed.
  4. Elam has a few of terrific defensive players(most of whom will be moving on), and Jordan Reed...and literally nothing else. How can you have nothing else after years of top 10 recruiting classes? Muschamp is a fraud. UF is fraudulent. Solid top 15-20 team.
  5. And 6 or 7 more depending on what happens with Shaq and Kennar.
  6. M. Alexander and Adrian Baker would be a pretty legit overall upgrade from Wiggins and Johnson, particularly in this defense.
  7. I think to the extent we MIGHT get a flip, the "flips" have already decommitted---Foster, Adrian Baker.
  8. His final 5 game highlight looked pretty good...I agree that he looked a lot worse in the early part of his senior year.
  9. He's been mentioned as one of the players impressing Grantham during bowl practice.
  10. Forget Riyahd Jones, Adrian Baker has a lot more upside and talent.
  11. He was a very physical tackler as a junior, so I'm skeptical that he lost the ability. I bet it's there.
  12. There's no excuse for not qualifying a second time. None. Just lazy.
  13. No room. If we were to take another DB, it would hopefully be Adrian Baker.
  14. They were ok. But seriously, back to talking about how good Gurley and Marshall are.
  15. Congrats to CK, and Bama. Was a fantastic game. The better team won. There should be no doubt about that. But I was also gratified to see that the tremendous gulf that had existed the past 3-4 years between UGA and the elite of the nation seems to have vanished. I have to get in one "I told ya so" though. It's meant in a goodnatured, proud of my team/coach way---I said that Richt was in the process of rebuilding, and that it was wrong to try to judge him on the Willy Martinez era, and that changing defenses and S/C was almost like starting the program anew, and that his results early on were indicative of rebuilding, not failure. You disagreed. ...You were wrong :P
  16. I think this is a very fair post. There have been quite a few reasons to be critical of Richt, but credit to him, he seems to be addressing them. He built the program way up, then it declined a LOT, then he rebuilt it. That's impressive. Basically, a certain segment of the fanbase will call Richt a failure unless he wins a NC. These people are stupid. I understand their desires, but they're like a 3 year old child crying because they don't get every last toy they want. Richt has us back playing at a championship level. Do that long enough, and you'll eventually break through...and even if you don't, having your team play at a championship level is all you can reasonably ask of anyone.
  17. Lol, a couple years ago, this guy would say "I'm sorry, Richt is an ok coach, not a good coach, he will never even win the East again." Never say never, you usually end up looking like a fool. Not clocking the ball at the end was a good call. It didn't work out, but it was a good call. Any non-casual football fan would figure that one out with only a little bit of thought.
  18. Does Florida count as a big win, or is that like stepping on a cockroach? Twice in a row, I guess it's become expected.
