    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.

      Mullen wasn’t even on my list for coaches I wanted, but damn guys, you just sound like a bunch of sandy vaginas. We get it, you think he’s horrible. Duly noted. Now tuck in those labia and lets see what happens.

        That sums it up for many of us. I wasn’t high on Kelly and once Frost was off the table I didn’t have a strong preference (except no way with Kiffin). I wasn’t pining for Mullen but have felt better about him from the moment he stepped off the plane.

        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.

          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.........."

            Is this a Justin Fields thread or our coach "Sucks" v. "no he doesn't suck" girl fight?

              We could have gotten Kelly if Kelly wanted to get got. He didn't.

                Please do. I come to this board to find information on my Gators; this specific thread to find the latest on Fields. I already knew that you hated the Mullen hire. So I've learned nothing else from your negativity and pessimism.

                  Well this year alone he beat Lsu and A&M (and was within 7 of Alabama).
                  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.

                      Corral is a Gator. He's been the glue holding this class together. If it weren't for him, we'd likely have about 3 commits right now.

                        You are a member of that select group of individuals who can complain about an offense winning a national championship.

                          Exactly, I think he could do well with Corral. DM worked on CL and gave him Billy Latsko to block for him. I will take the worst offensive year Mullen produced at UF over anything we've had in the last two coaches.

                            So that's what you're butthurt about? Corral, the diva who didn't fit at all and was afraid of competition?

                            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.

                              I think most people are reasonable. Some people are being over optimistic. And you’re being an overbearing pessimist. Both extremes are ridiculous.

                                Don’t mind TRex. He’s gone back to full-blown rampage mode after the Mullen hire.

                                  A reminder of what Corral can do in the pocket. Watch him juke a couple rushers and throw a perfect strike off the back foot at 0:18. This kid is extremely gifted.

                                      After all this huge excitement about who our new coach will be, we get Cousin Eddie at a Nick Saban pricetag. Stricklin is a friggin idiot to pay $7M for guaranteed mediocrity for years to come. Our rivals are laughing their azzes off right now.

                                            Our community sprung up when the Gatorsports message board was shut down in the summer of 2014. We pride ourselves on offering Gator-biased, yet critical discussion among people of all different backgrounds. We are working every day to make sure our community is the best Gator message board you will find.
