      Staff continuity and a guy whose defense was pretty solid at MSU in the SEC West.

      Let's ride.

        Yeah, not a huge fan. But he did do a pretty good job at MSU. I guess this falls into the, "Yeah, he's an a$$hole, but he's our a$$hole" category.

          My Dad, my hero that he is, just put me in my place.....after commenting about my disgust for Grantham, he reminded me - "And haven't you tolerated the Cane Randy Shannon for 3 years?"

          I will tolerate Grantham, and hope he can make this Gator D elite again. At least repeat the success of the MissSt D - #110 to #10 in the nation in one year.

            Personally I'm glad. Shannon had a great run as D Coordinator in Miami years ago, but its not been great here that's for sure.

            3rd and Grantham should be interesting to see. I do like the attacking style he brings, that should be fun.

                So outside of general bias against Grantham, why won't it end well?

                I mean the guy has MSU from #110 to #10 in defense.

                      No.

                      Answer it.

                      After leaving Georgia he did fairly well at Da Ville and at MSU. It's nothing but bias and general dislike of the ******* that youre saying that.

                        I can't say I am a fan of this one. I know he did well at MSU, but he didn't do great at UGA. UGA fans I know are laughing and excited right now.

                        Hope I am wrong... hopefully he makes our D nasty again... and hopefully he can get some mean LBs and DTs here.

                          He's learned and done well since Georgia, better than what we've had so I am game

                          Other than one play, one HUGE play, he called an excellent game against the Tide this year.

                          Look, I was one of the most vociferous Grantham haters when he did the whole choking thing at our kicker when he was at Georgia, but right now we suck hind teat and desperate times call for desperate measures. I'm sick to death of putrid football so I'm open to almost anything to turn this thing around......almost.

                            Want to drop some info here. UF ranked 31st in the nation in total defense. Sounds pretty good and better than we thought. However, when you look at yards per play we drop to 77th.

                            MSU was ranked 10th in total defense and 39th in yards per play. So they were better than us but we both played a slower brand of football.

                            Yds per play leaders were:
                            Wisconsin
                            Alabama
                            Washington
                            Clemson
                            Ohio St

                              Not a fan of his personally, but if he can make Cowbell #10 in Defense there....perhaps he has some upside.

                                I think he only had the one bad year at Georgia. Since then his defenses have been pretty good.

                                  I don't love him for the "choke" with our punter who was kicking a FG, but in reality.... we really got the best of him. Henry made the kick and stared him down...

                                  I think he probably hates us for that more than we hate him.. he was on the losing end.

                                      The management works very hard to make sure the community is running the best software, best designs, and all the other bells and whistles. Care to buy us a non-alcoholic Zima? We'd really appreciate it! Just click the "Donate" tab at the top of the page.
