    I know! I feel like the coaches at IMG still have something against UF

    Or Mac can't relate to the players and they don't like him.

      If that was the case, you'd see the same % of failure. To have 0% success is an anomaly.

        It seems like there's an anti-UF culture that permeates the place. Highly skilled and personable recruiters could reverse that. It looks that that isn't happening any time soon.

            He has 0% success at most Florida high schools and with most bluechippers. It doesn't seem like much of an anomaly.

                  It also probably says that he is a long shot to flip

                  ?Truly, we've all seen the sideline clips of Mac calmly instructing a flubbing player. The kids appreciate that
                  style such that they are endeared to this HC. They like him and want to give him their best.
                  Now that's an important ingredient and an important start in UF's favor. So the fall-short has got to be a total
                  flush-out of all the other important ingredients =

                  some of significance is poisoning the IMG waters?

                  in his crew Mac has too many stupid-aloof coaches & recruiters? fire rightly, hire rightly.

                  there is no bravery for favorable odds gambles? (riverboat gambler Spurrier)

                  too high % of predictable plays used? = play-schemes too much as it seems, not adequate deceit to create the opponent's malpositioning, wrong sucker steps .

                  Does Mac need to transform his attack by 30%, by 40%, by 50% etc ?

                  Pick Franks and intensely train him, his receivers, his OL, his RB in the Franks-natural playing style. Make Trask
                  and others adapt to that style as best they can. Thus, this is the type of QB us Gators are going to ride on, so
                  perfect it. Devise a merciless attack and take each play as crucial. And don't make it kool, make us hot.

                  I don't know. I believe that the bleacher report videos are bad mojo for chosen team, a la Hansard (though Hebert's was way better). I think we get the flip.

                  Personally, I think this kid's a little overrated. But we're just getting spanked on the trail right now.
