              It really would be best if these columnists would just leave Trask’s name out of the discussion until there is actually tangible evidence that he belongs there. It only opens the door to him getting bashed on here. I mean law’s now got him not tossing a meaningful pass post 12 years of age, and ATX wants to throw him out there like a medieval foot soldier on the frontlines so our real players don’t get hurt. It’s brutal.

                You’ll do that regardless who we hire. Hell, we won’t even need to hire anyone.

                You’re probably cumming your pants right now.

                    It's remarkable that after taking a 1-4 team and winning in the Playoffs, ESPN went wall to wall about criticizing Tebow's style of play and that he shouldn't be quarterback in the NFL. In fact, they thought the media distraction was a perfectly legitimate reason for teams not to sign Tebow....b/c after all, who would want the circus that came with it? What's worse, the fact that Tebow was openly Christian?!! Egast! :eek: Perfectly ok for teams not to want that around their locker room.

                    Contrast this with how ESPN is outraged about Kaepernick not being signed by a team....they claim for NO legitimate reason other than he trashes America! Apparently that type of ideology must be championed and defended by ESPN. Even though Kaep's performance on the field has been abysmal, the negative circus that Kaep brings to town now shouldn't be considered at all as a factor by teams. Positive circus brought to town by Tebow....no one should sign him! Negative circus brought by Kaep.... you must sign him or else!

                    It's quite clear what ideology ESPN is in bed with. They don't even try to hide how hypocritical they are.

                      Yes you did.

                      He was a d*ck to the fans.
                      He blamed everyone but himself for his failures.
                      He didn't address our "facilities" issues w/ the AD.
                      He failed to recruit offensive talent for 4 years.
                      He ran off 5 QBs, two who were drafted in the NFL.
                      He hired Charlie F*cking Weiss!
                      He lost to a 1AA football team who didn't throw a single pass in the game....at home.
                      He lost to Vanderbilt.
                      He received a $6+ million severance.

                      Did I miss anything??

                        If somebody parks in a handicapped place that is not supposed to I'm not going to say anything to them. They shouldn't park in those places and they are jerks. But I'm not out to right every little wrong in the world. I don't give jerks the time of day. You're not going to accomplish much by wasting your time trying to correct jerks. Jerks carry guns too.

                          Interesting thread. No argument that every profession has pitfalls and stressful situations. Those of us in education likely come across as whiny about work-related issues that hinder the effectiveness of the mission as well as a want/need for better compensation, but that can be representative of those who are passionate about the mission of education, which for those in it for the right reasons look at it more as a ministry than a job.

                          Personally, I knew that I was not going to get rich as a PE teacher/football coach and later as a school administrator, but early on I was having so much fun doing what I was doing that I couldn't believe that they were paying me in the first place! Much of my fulfillment came from seeing the positive impact that I was making (or least what I perceived). Now 29 years in, I admit to being a little jaded by what education has become and requires of those who take on the mantle of seeing that our kids learn what they need to know in order to be successful adults or at least to have a chance for such. Much of what is required today falls in the realm of parenting as much or more so than strictly the academic needs. Most of the teachers I work with gladly take on these extra duties, but when such a large part of the student body arrives each day either hungry, tired from lack of rest, or emotionally distraught because of family or neighborhood issues, it can be taxing on the most diligent educators who must continually find ways to not only circumvent these road blocks, but also keep them from hindering the dwindling number of students who show up prepared and eager to learn.

                          @AlexDaGator is correct that one thing teachers have going for them in most states is a pretty good pension plan...IF they can stay in the profession long enough to take advantage of it. Sadly, many good teachers nowadays get out before actual retirement time due more to the extraneous things that they have to deal with and not the academic requirements. Not every teacher has that inner social worker that they can channel as needed and, unfortunately, die metaphorically (career-wise) from a broken heart for the students for whom they can't make the necessary difference. More pay and benefits may be a salve, but it is not a cure for this type of situation.

                          Again, every vocation has its rough components, but not all are as people-centric as education finds itself to be and the people who count the most beyond the students, parents, are not on the average providing the support that the students need to be successful in and out of school. A child is lucky in most cases to have a caring teacher or teachers, counselors, and administrators who work on the many non-academic deficits during the day and they can make a difference for the 6-1/2 hours of school. But what is usually a greater determiner is what goes on in the child's life for the other 17-1/2 hours. In that regard, we have not progressed as we should as a society. I suppose we'll always be able to find warm bodies to put in a classroom, but the children need more than that and fewer imminently qualified educators are available these days. To wit, we interviewed a recent college grad for a Math position and found that out of the two Colleges of Education in Tallahassee (FSU and FAMU) there were only two Math Education majors, one from each institution, graduating this year. Thus, many schools are having to hire out-of-field/second career teachers to fill the void, many who do well, but more who aren't prepared for managing a group of students who they aren't trained to deal with and are vastly different from the students they remember when they sat in the desk themselves.

                          The future of American education is troubling to say the least.

                              Let's see:

                              He is a complete asshat.
                              He brought Gator football to unprecedented lows and set us back at least 5 years.
                              He poached some of our coaching staff when he left.
                              He poached some of our recruits when he left.
                              He bad mouthed our facilities to recruits and did everything in his power to recruit against us.
                              He is a complete asshat.

                              Did I miss anything?

                                    Yep, the problem we have isn’t even that two guys battling during practice are not fighting enough. The problem is that our players aren’t physically attacking backup punters while holding the punter’s arms behind his back for a scholarship football player to beat him (at least they ensured no position player injuries this way). That happens at all football practices of successful teams.

                                    I just wish our team was as tough as our posters. It’s a hard standard though, as no one gives their keyboard as much of a beating as the Donk and his 42k plus posts.

                                        Perine running out of bounds two plays earlier was a much bigger decision, even thought Davis made it moot.

                                            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.
