    No, Marines are certainly are not soldiers, and I shudder every time a movie or TV show screws that up! Amazing how often that happens. Same thing when they call SEALs "soldiers". Sure sign that a script writer has no experience with the military. To be safe, just refer to Spec Ops guys as "operators": Delta, SEALs, Recon Marines, and Chair Force PJs. Yeah, Rangers are a special breed, too, but they are definitely soldiers.

    Yep, you know these guys well enough to have an informed opinion that they're "meh" hires? More confirmation you have no idea what you're talking about, yet you revel in your ignorance. Must be sweet to go through life guided my your own knee-jerk emotional reactions, unrestricted by accountability or facts. Good for you. A completely unemployable or defensible perspective, but good for you if you're happy.

    So if I refuse to settle for losing, I'm a troll?! Why don't you go pump your sunshine elsewhere? Am I ignorant when I say we've lost 4 straight to FS? Am I ignorant when I say we finished behind FS and GA in recruiting?! Seems yours is the emotional reaction, while mine is based in fact.

        Calm down, sporty. And get an avatar.

        We like newcomers around here, especially ones with spunk, but he is no pumper.

          Due to insomnia, I stumbled on Marines’ post after NSD 2017. This post was awesome and funny in 2017, but sadly, even better (if ironically) now.

          Who knew Marine1 was the most accurate “dumper” on the board; accurately predicting the 4 win season.

          Terrific!

            Well, it was 4-7, so I guess he was right to mock the realists.

            This thread was painful to read. What always struck me was that some people couldn't see (or refused to see) how awful Mac was, even during our "East Champs" seasons. The ONLY short period it looked like there was some progress on offense was when Grier was playing. After the suspension, it was over forever.

            He and his staff were a total embarrassment even in his first two years. I don't know how anyone looked at them and saw hope for the future, even if they were given 200 years. Tunaboat called Mac a "Phuktard" in a post once, and honestly that's the most accurate word to describe him in the English language.

            Here it is, I looked it up. Posted November 10, 2016. I've never forgotten this post, because it completely summed up how I was feeling. There was no hope, and there would never be any hope. It was obvious that quickly.

              And we later learned that Grier was calling his own plays and audibles that game, which now makes perfect sense in retrospect.

                  Marine is a pumper. He was trying to make fun of the dumpers. He was actually using last year's NSD as proof we were wrong and that Mac was turning some kind of corner. You have it backwards.

                      As far as recruiting at a place like UF you will know what the deal is usually with the coach's 2nd class. If it isn't a top level one (better than 9 or 10 level) you don't have a good recruiter. I am hoping Mullen can get the top guys now that he is at UF but if he gets a class even like Macs last one that isn't a good sign with what our rivals seem to be doing lately.
