    Let's be clear, the UF pick six was misread by WR vs single high safety and not on QB. Receiver should've stayed on the seam.

    Tweet per Chris Doering....

    Over the course of the season, Mac said several times he was considering playing the Freshmen QBs. If he thought he needed permission to play them why didn't he have this parental discussion before? Is it possible Mac doesn't always tell the truth? Say it ain't so!!

    Unfortunately I think Mac & Nuss's offense requires knowledge and study by the players. The receivers are getting open.

    I do not hear stories of players in the film room or self practice taking place.

    Mac inherited a program that was on a downward trajectory. And under him (the East notwithstanding), things have gotten worse. And based on the state of our recruiting, it looks like it's about to crash. The AD needs to act now. If he waits till next year, the job req may well include, "Applicants with the demonstrated ability to operate a broom and dustpan preferred. "

    Exactly. Receiver play has been shyt too. And it has happened very often.

    @Bradwentworth0 Stay on seam vs single high or seam post vs two high. WR had inside leverage on defender covering him with safety in middle.
    @Bradwentworth0 WR and QB have to see and read the same thing. It's actually fairly easy and clear cut.

    I agree with you but this is never going to happen.

    If we get Looeyville it will be yet another historic beatdown to finish Mac and his Shytshow off more quickly. Petrino wont hesitate to score 60-80 on us.

    On paper if that Georgia QB improves from his freshman year some they have some big time talent on paper at least. We better hope Smart doesn't know how to develop it and keeps making stupid in game decisions or they will be a force soon. Talk about a nightmare scenario as he can recruit real good unlike Mac.

    The only guy I think might be available after next season that could turn this around is Chip Kelly. And I'm not even sold that he is better than butters with x's and o's, but I know one damned thing: he would bring more 5 star recruits than we've ever had here. Thats where it all starts. Its really not the x's and o's, its the Jimmy's and the Joe's. We saw that last night for sure. Bama wasn't doing anything scheme or playcalling wise better than us, they just had far superior talent. I'm afraid we will remain 3 star U otherwise.

    Kelly was never a top tier recruiting.

    To say he'd bring more bluechippers than CUM is silly. CUM's 05 class was legendary, arguably GOAT. Hell his 2010 class (at least on defense) was pretty close.

    You're right.....I guess years of subpar recruiting have fried my brain.

    I still would take Kelly in a heartbeat.

    I'm sure most would. Hell I probably would get on board, though I don't like sideways offenses.

    He is obviously far, far better than what we have. So far better that it's an insult to mention Butters in the same breath as Kelly. Nevertheless, Kelly was a more with less guy not a great recruiter, odd given that Oregon has probably the second best facilities in the country.

    Regarding Cover's 2nd bullet, number 3. One difference between OL when we played LSU and Bama was that Martez Ivy wasn't injured when UF played LSU, and though he played yesterday, his ankle was not really 100%, and then it got reinjured and taped again. It seems like njuries almost have to affect the amount of push possible from and through the athlete's body on OL. Don't know how much of a factor that was for overall line performance..

    I think recruiting is the key, and Mac is not recruiting well. Even when you have injuries, good recruiting helps. When an all American gets hurt on Bama's team, they just put in another 5 star player.

    The Gators will not be back until recruiting improves a lot, and I don't see Mac getting it done. The Gators need a lot more than a quarterback.

    Florida actually did some things well at times, and they might win a bowl game. Assuming the players are not demoralized and Mac plays to win (not guaranteed).

    We will see how it pans out, but I don't see anyone beating Bama this year. I hope they get to play Ohio State, but I don't think Ohio State deserves to be in the playoff.

    Honestly, a good passing team could and should have won that game.

    It would have helped a lot, but I don't think that would be enough. You need to be able run it and also play defense and special teams. Bama is a complete team. Not perfect, but they can win in many ways.

    Many teams are rebuilding lately. That's a cyclical occurrence. We are not rebuilding - McnCrew has us
    self-destructing. Our "coaching system" has us wasting good athletes in fully shameful ways. Heck, this
    coaching consortium has spread to shamefully wasting Gator fans. Who among us isn't stymied ?

    Just maybe basketball can be a distraction? We need something; in football, we are getting zero.
    Group hug, gang, so sorry.
