        Maybe no one else is interested, but I am impressed with Trump's press conferences. Several things. How mature and fair he has been. How smart, knowledgeable, and poised his WH coordinator is. Clearly her IQ alone exceeds that of the press in its entirety. How patently venal and small minded the press is as they repeatedly ignore news and substantive questions to ask be gotchas and how casually Trump swats them away. I have long supported his policies, but only now do I see him as something more than a self absorbed showman given to constant exaggerations. Do others see this?

                  How about Terry Dean? It’s like he wasn’t even on the field against UGA? :grin: But, in all seriousness, Dean and Wilson have been pretty disappointing in big games this season. Wilson was great as a Freshmen and Dean seemed to be coming into his own towards the end of last year. Why have they seemingly regressed?

                    And hey, I wrote it.

                    Florida vs. Georgia Preview – Chomp The Numbers

                    It's long form writing, that's what I like to do. I find most game analysis is lazy garbage, I do film review of every game, often do film previews as well. I used to write for In All Kinds Of Weather but decided to do my own thing.

                        I'm sitting here w/ the Pats/Browns game on and they just showed an old video of when Bilicheck was the coach of the Browns. He went on some cooking show in Cleveland to discuss his famous PB&J....talks about spreading the peanut butter on both sides of the bread so the jelly doesn't leak through...the same exact thing that Butters did when he did the SEC Network special w/ Chris Doering. What a fraud!!!

                            Jonathan Greenard, Florida
                            The Gators suffered a huge blow early in the loss to LSU when Greenard left the game after injuring his ankle and was unable to return. A graduate transfer from Louisville, Greenard has been a perfect fit for the hybrid "Buck" position in Florida's defense. He's a relentless edge rusher and leads the team with four sacks and seven quarterback pressures. He also has an interception and a forced fumble. The Gators really need him to get healthy because he's the guy who makes Todd Grantham's defense go.

                                  I remember when he committed being intrigued and then later thinking maybe he wasn’t SEC material. I had no idea about all the injuries. In any event enjoy the below story; it’s nice to see a student-athlete who not only takes the student part seriously, but also takes full advantage of the presented opportunity.

                                    Fancy title to basically discuss why transfers are:

                                    A. Not a bad thing at all for Florida

                                    B. Not an indictment of Dan Mullen

                                    C. Necessary for the program

                                    The premise of explaining all of the above is that, finally, more elite recruits can trust the University of Florida again, after three years of incompetence and unprofessional, negligent recruiting by Butters, which has left the depth of this program starved for talent.

                                    As players sort out their situations at other schools, they can finally come to Gainesville, knowing that solid coaching, improvement and preparation for the professional ranks exists. Additionally, the momentum around the core enthusiasm from the players is drawing attention. Some of these players may have ruled out UF previously, during their initial recruiting, because of the dysfunction here.

                                    Also, because of the poor structuring of what talent Butters did bring in, there is massive opportunity here to play quickly. Butter's may have swung some recruiting rankings, but the key areas of the trenches were ignored completely. 2020 is going to be a hard year, as it is for any coach that takes over in a situation like Mullen's, where he has to recover from a lack of higher talent upperclassmen. To be able to bring in some players that can help fill these gaps will ease the pain somewhat.

                                    While I believe that the school has put a significant hindrance in front of themselves in terms of poor coaching hires, poor football, arrogance around facilities, and poor relationships in the state - I also see this staff beginning to mend some of those injuries, but need to emphasize the on the field excitement while a couple of those items take (even more) time to catch up. Transfers like Cox and, hopefully, Joseph, will keep some of that momentum going.

                                    Transfers are a short term fix - the long term strategy for Mullen has to be:

                                    1. Taking back the top talent in the state
                                    2. Balanced roster structure
                                    3. Excellence in development
                                    4. Winning, obviously

                                    But, until they get all the repairs done to what the previous tenant left behind, a short term fix, especially if not sacrificing relationships and culture, is a suitable, and necessary, means to rebuild the program.
