He was his quarterback coach. Stop making up **** to feed your stupid narrative.
Leak passed for 3k in 06, Tebow passed for 3200 and 2700 yards in 07 and 08.
Dak passed for 3500 and 3800 yards his junior and senior years.
Doesn’t pass huh? You don’t have to like him but stop lying.

I’m taking the criticisms and cautions seriously because many of these guys are digging into relevant stats. All things considered and other options uncertain, I’m looking forward to seeing how this unfolds over the next few years. “Could” has to become “did” and in a terrifically difficult arena. There are lots of good coaches and good players trying very hard every day and only a few get trophies. UF has and should get more than most, but it’s really hard.
It’s not just great coach + great players = championships. (Meyer & Saban may be the 2 exceptions to that. I think either of them would win in any reasonable context.) It’s being the right coach in the right place at the right time, recruiting and connecting with players who buy in and meld into a championship team.
And even when all that is in place, Ahmad Black ripping an INT away from Joaquin Iglesias might make the difference. Michael Dyer’s knee not touching the ground makes the difference. Deshaun Watson getting the ball last makes the difference.
There’s no formula. A coordinator with no HC experience can win (Stoops). A HC who did better than most at a lesser program can win (Miles). A position coach with no HC experience can win (Dabo). But the vast majority from any category don’t.
Many of us think very highly of James Franklin and would have preferred him after Muschamp’s 4-8 season. His record at Vandy? 11-13 in conference against the weak SECe. But he took them to 3 consecutive bowls (they had never been to consecutive bowls) and a top-25 ranking. As a HC he was 3-15 vs. ranked teams coming into this year and tied with Mullen as a %. So yeah, he’s edged ahead at Penn St. this year while Mullen was still at MSU.
I’m ready to see if Mullen’s can right this ship and get us back in the mix consistently.

Shyttersfull: "Hey Justin, I'd really like you to reconsider Florida for your college of choice!"
Fields: "Oh really, will you be running the same offense you always have?"
Shyttersfull: "Oh yea, we will. It's going to be great, you should join us!"
Fields: "Sooo... you want me to gain 35 pounds, run into the defensive line 25 times a game, and occasionally throw it from the shotgun when I'm not too injured to do so?"
Shyttersfull: "YES, That's it exactly! Will you come?!?!"
Fields: "........................ I'll uhhhhhhh.......... get back to you soon.........."

Last year he beat A&M and OM.
In 2015 he beat Auburn.
In 2014 Lsu, Auburn and A&m(5 point loss to Alabama)
Every year he's beaten a few teams that had much more talent, and has played eventual NC teams to 3-6 point losses. I'm not excusing anything. I'm stating reality that his record is one of the more impressive out there given the circumstances. As I posted a week or so ago, if Ala or uga wins it all, that would make 6 times in 9 seasons that he had to play the eventual NC winner. And should one of those two make the finals, an additional 4 times he would'e faced the eventual runner up(not counting us in 2009). Forget names and coaching preferences. That stat is absurd. The West has chewed up and spit out coaches since 2008, either because they couldn't win enough or because they had to cheat to even stay close.
Again, I'm ok with having some worry about Mullen. I may even share certain concerns. But you could make just as much of an argument that Frost wasn't ready for the big stage with zero counter evidence. You could argue that Kelly and some of his baggage may have hindered him here in recruiting, not to mention his lack of SEC knowledge and insistence on tempo which has noted and irrefutable defensive side effects. Any and all candidates were going to carry their fair share of risks. I just see no point in focusing solely on the negatives and ignoring the numerous reasons many national analysts feel this is a great hire. I love to argue, and we've had some fun ones on here. But I honestly don't see a single reason to not sit back, hope for the best and try to enjoy UF football again.
We're going to land a MUCH better QB than Corral (it would be an upset at this point if Jones doesn't sign). Kudos to the coaching staff for not being lazy and at least attempting to flip an elite QB like Fields. Mac and company wouldn't even have bothered.
