      Of course not that is terrible. I am just accurate instead of emotional.

      He called a 6-3 loss to Grasseater and cant beg borrow or steal a coordinator position even now that people have opened their eyes.

      He is a national laughingstock.

      Some of you are exceedingly dense and just dont know shyt about football though.

        Isn't it accurate to say Butters was a horrific head coach in every respect?

          If you were accurate Saban and everyone else would have tried to grab him immediately upon being hired as people did w Muschump. As bad of an HC as he is, he is a decent coordinator.

          No one wanted anywhere near Butterteeth, ESPECIALLY Bammer who not only.didnt want him as a coordinator but didnt want him as a position coach even.

          Your bullshyt isnt in the same zipcode as accurate.

            All the critics like yourself said UF would do poorly in his first year and he ended up in the championship game. He made enough of the limited talent he had year one.

            Mac's worst weaknesses are as a recruiter and talent developer. In year 3 he added poor play calling. To be fair when he had developed talent at Bama , CSU and UF( in year one at UF) he outperformed the critics.

            In year three due to suspensions, injuries and poor recruiting Mac hit a low in talent. Mac needs developed talent to win. Due in part to his failures he hit rock bottom on talent. He is not good enough to over come that.

            Limited talent? He inherited a top 10 defense. All he had to do was put up 20 a game and show up on time when Grier asked to meet.

              Mac stumbled his way into the SEC championship games and got his ass handed to him both times. Us being there was due to the horrible condition of the east. I watched a total of ONE game during his time here that resembled a real football team. Mac sucks balls and is a huge failure.

                So did the backup punter. WTF does this have to do with his tenure at UF?

                  He DID do poorly in his first year, I don't give a damn what the record shows. We had an incredible defense which he had nothing to do with, and were still damn close to a losing season if some of those close games go the other way.

                  Just quit while you're behind. Defending the worst coach that has ever walked the UF sideline is never going to end well for you.

                    We could be much better but lets not kid ourselves here. If Franks rolls out there and starts giving the other team the ball more than we are able to score this team will most like likely fold up shop....Better hope the Freshmen is getting the bulk of reps in fall camp if we're going to mke a bowl game this year.

                    Mizzu went to the SECG twice, once in a year that they lost to a bad MAC team. Did that make them a good team with a good coach? Of course not. Someone has to win and the SEC east was just full of shyt coaches and teams.

                    His play calling was no different in year 1, 2, or 3. Same OC, same shyt. You guys just got tired of blaming the QB for it, finally.

                    That has nothing to do with winning the close games this past season with added top talent.

                    I have not said Mac is a great coach. He outperformed the critics initially with better developed talent but his lazy recruiting and development caught up to him.
                    The coaches who voted him SEC coach of the year disagree with you. They may know a little bit more about football than you.

                    Mac was the perfect transition coach. He made everyone coming behind him look like a genius.

                      Strike two.

                      You can't even have rational discussions with people like you. If you had been running UF for the past 15 years, Zook would still be the head coach.

                      BULL$HIT. They voted that way because he somehow stumbled his sorry ass into the seccg. He had no business being there.

                      Mac was not a transition coach. You have to be a top recruiter. Mac is a terrible recruiter.
