    In another thread, Fever mentioned Tyler Russell not running much in 2012. I didn't want to make it a bigger rabbit trail in the other thread, so here are a few I could find.

      You just checked scores? I'm just looking at the offense, specifically what his "no running QB" offense looked like in 2012, which is different than 2006 UF.

      I will say that we simply don't have a Tyler Russell or Chris Leak on this team so frankly ours won't look as good as either of course. We do, I think have more talent at WR and especially RB. Not sure how we use those with no OL or QB though.

      Also, ignore Cowbell's crappy defense. That was with Sidehat and some other dingleberry co DC, I think.

      The poor ST does concern me.

      Here's two more. Most of the youtubes about 2012 Cowbell are just highlights. I'm just posting the games I can find that are full broadcasts.

        In 2012 they had a decent record but did really bad on offense against the good SEC teams.

        They beat Barn, Tinerc, Kintuck and Pigberts, but I just can't find the link to any of those on youtube, other than highlights.

          So what you are saying is that our offense will look EXACTLY like that with the SAME EXACT players?? I am guessing that most of those players are gone or haven't transferred to UF.

            You aren't particularly bright, are you?

            I'm saying it is interesting to see play selection and how he approached it vis a vis 2005 and 2006.

              You said nothing about play selection in the thread until after my comment. Coaches evolve, some of those games were 6-7 years ago. What is next? SOS games at UF vs SOS games at SC? Pretty sure there are some differences in there. Let me guess there will be a thread on all losses by Mullen next

              No videos of when Mullen was OC at UF?? Let's see those play calls. I am guessing not cause all the credit goes to Urbs

              I posted them for x and o purposes. The recent stuff (also when Mullinz was being ordered what to do by Creyer) is more relevent.

              If I just wanted to point out he lost some games in 2012, or any other year, just posting scores would have worked.

              If you read the other thread, Fever made the point, valid I now think, that Milulkinz has run an offense with a QB who wasnt a runner without using a fullback and running I form (like in 2006 w Latsko). I either didnt remember it or didnt pay attention to it.

              It also makes the point that he threw more than I remembered at Cowbell, at least some years.

              Breathe slowly and try to join in the conversation and thinking going on, Boss. I know you have it.

                Here is the actual post by Fever, Boss. It was in the roster number thread and people opining what no FB on the roster might mean:

                  Anywho, what is the consensus on the Mullen offense? Are we gonna be top 50? Top 100 again? Will Mullen's offense be an upgrade? Do we have the Jimmy's and Joe's? Are we able to predict it yet or do we have to wait until September to actually see them play?

                    With Franks I definitely don't see a top 50 situation at years end. I have a feeling this will be like 2014 where most people got excited we crushed that joke first opponent and then the offense/Driskel looked like straight crap the next game against KY forcing us into triple OT or whatever it was.

                    I personally believe we will see more passing than the normal Mullen offense. Maybe not until next season though. Im afraid Franks will be an interception machine.

                    And yet that 2014 offense has been our best offense this decade.

                    The contenders:

                    2014 104th 4411 yards

                    http://www.espn.com/college-football/statistics/team/_/stat/total/sort/totalYards/year/2014

                    2011 98th but only 4200 yards
                    http://www.espn.com/college-football/statistics/team/_/stat/total/sort/totalYards/year/2011

                    2010 77th 4561 yards
                    http://www.espn.com/college-football/statistics/team/_/stat/total/sort/totalYards/year/2010

                    Treon vs Brantley. Is 2010 in this decade or the last?

                    Good times

                      I'll say plenty about play selection if you want, but the important thing the videos show is the play selection he has available. That is what is shown without the meyer influence: it's extremely simplistic. Regardless of who mullen has had during his time as a HC, that is the consistent. He's Stanford from a spread. Very simple scheme that hopes to consistently win 1-v-1 matchups instead of trying to create huge mismatches, be versatile, etc. That's why, just like Stanford, he can't consistently beat teams with equal or more talent. Just can't win every matchup consistently.

                      The scary thing is that if you take out ONE player during his 9 years as a HC, we're not having this conversation. ONE. These videos show why. Our only hope is for him to find one of the better QBs in the country, bc he's butch davis without it.
