That’s a cheap shot at Pruitt (coach) from Murray (player). You’re going to have differences of opinion on a staff. It’s not his place to hang that laundry out.

Agreed Rob and Jaws. It’s a future past perspective for both teams.
It’s impressive what Mullen did at Florida as an OC. It’s on the edge of being unbelievable what he accomplished at MSU in his first HBC gig. Gators should be feeling a little giddy about the future.
Coach Mullen, our players and program looked great at SEC Media Days.
The spread puts an entirely new spin on the QB position. Any of the guys on the roster could be effective in a run-first offense. Durability will be a big factor.
Don’t forget Toney in the Wildcat or a spread variation. Opposing defenses won’t. They will have to take practice and meeting time to prepare for the possibility.
Yes, we’ve got to get it going up front to engineer a turnaround for this program. I didn’t want to get into all the uncertainties with the offensive line at the risk of being called a pessimist. It all starts up front.
There’s a bit of a learning curve with zone blocking schemes. That’s another reason why I think we will lean on the run this…[Read more]
Sure there’s a lack of fulfillment. Only one team leaves Omaha without two losses.
Let’s see how well your predictions for FSU, Miami and these other teams work out this next season. No amount of words can substantiate a position that UF Baseball is not at it’s highest levels of performance and play under Kevin Sullivan.
Just as in the past, getting the ball to these sure hands and fleet feet is going to be a major challenge this season. When your offense is ranked near last in the country (100+) getting it to average is a major accomplishment.
Florida is likely to be a bit run heavy this season anyway, considering the backs we have available and the inherent…[Read more]
I agree Doc. It will be a schematic reversal of the pass to run philosophy of Coach Mac.
The run threat is critical to the success of the spread. Even with a cannon for an arm, success for UF and Franks will be on how well he runs.
Because of that, I’m not sure how things will go for Franks this season. Just how much rounding of the peg (a…[Read more]
As Gators, we love to see a dynamic passing offense. In this inaugural season of the Mullen era, it’s the running game that will be key to our success.
That’s fortunate for UF because Jordan Scarlett is well-rested and there’s a stable of talented and experienced RBs on the roster. We’re poised to pound our way to a successful season.
You are the one that is missing the point or inflating the significance of winning a natty or a game against UF in any sport.
You have a very limited perspective on what greatness really means for a university.
Nope. Unfortunately we’re a year or so from putting a name on a pre-season WR top 10 list. The talent’s been here. The issue has been getting them the ball. Much depends on QB development this season
I hope Massey, Toney and Copeland get the chance to shine. I can’t wait to see Van Jefferson. He’s had good arms slinging passes to him the past few…[Read more]
It’s interesting that UF and UT are both back to year one with head coaches. I look forward to seeing your take on progress in Knoxville with the new regime.
Another shared aspect is an off-season emphasis on glory years and personalities of the past. Florida really got carried away with Mullen and Spurrier returning to Hogtown. Fulmer…[Read more]
It’s OK Doc, let them get the big head listening to all the experts handing the East to them before a game is played.
As we both know, anything can happen in that game. Sure Georgia is going to be good. The continuity of coaching and top 20 recruiting classes have been there with only Richt and now Smart guiding the program since 2001. It was an…[Read more]
Long overdue. Just kidding of course. Can’t get his name on the ring fast enough for most Gators.
Then again, there is the lunatic fringe, people on this forum who will say he should not be a part of the ROH because he only won one natty on his own.
War Chant is at a different URL. I heard this position before under your old aliases at this forum. It’s a viewpoint that much like FSU, is completely delusional in assessing the impact of the school on many levels.
A bit of recent success in a couple of sports does not make a dynasty or “everything” school. FSU is still the number 2 or 3…[Read more]
It’s disappointing the Gators could not repeat in Omaha. I came away impressed with the overall level of play. Arkansas and Oregon State were clearly the better two teams.
Can’t imagine how heartbroken the Razorbacks are to come so close to a first NC in baseball and leave Omaha with nothing. Oregon State is a remarkable team.
Gators came…[Read more]
I wouldn’t be surprised to see both QBs in the opener. After that one of them should emerge as the starter.
You have to have consistency at QB to get anything out of an offense, especially in the first year. Based on the O&B game, Franks may have an edge. Things could change with the full contact of a game.
Everybody’s learning. I wouldn’t…[Read more]

Can’t wait to see how Nembhard, Johnson and Locke fit into Mike White’s system. Go Gators!
That’s a good way to look at this season. Unexpected victories are some of the sweetest.
There’s always been talent at Florida. It’s been a lack of consistency at style and coaching that’s crippled the offense. Eight or nine wins in year one of a coaching transition would be a great result.
How quickly can Mullen turn things around? Most people…[Read more]
