    I don't know why everyone around here is still *****ing about losing 2-4 games a season? Until the NCAA steps in and does something about the Bama/Clemson/OSU's of the world essentially having 25 first-round picks every year, nothing is going to change! Sure you might get a once in a decade team like LSU to make all the right moves but that's not the norm and look at what they did this season.

    Just accept the fact that no coach, no facility no admin change is going to change a damn thing unless we catch a once in a decade season like LSU. The only other fix is to sneak our way into the VIP section or have the NCAA instill some sort of star parody.

      You make great points. Right now NCAA football reminds me of old school NASCAR. Whoever had the most money to put into their engines always won until NASCAR started installing regulations to make things more equal. Right now Alabama, Clemson, UGA and OSU are the Richard Petty, David Pearson and Darrell Waltrip types of the NCAA. They'll stay at the top until the NCAA does something to force more equality in the rosters which are the engines of college sports.

        I call BS. I don’t want the NCAA enacting MORE ridiculous rules. If the administration at UF wants to field championship level football teams then they definitely have the resources to do it. Until then, just accept the fact that Bama, Clemson, OSU and the dwags just want it more.

          Nope. Had Mullen worked harder at recruiting and built a staff of hard workers that recruit then I think we would be back in a big way. Mullen has a lot of the ingredients to be successful but he seems to be lacking in relentless effort and requiring that from his staff. All those teams are building their roster from Florida talent. Look at what Saban took from Florida this year. I bet Mullen and his staff didn't work anywhere near as hard as Saban and his staff did at getting all those Florida hs kids.

            So you’re saying 123 teams out of 128 just aren’t putting enough into recruiting hard? Or, you could just face the fact that Bama, OSU, Clemson, UGA and ND can grab whoever they want. Just look at the playoffs the past few years, it has the excitement of watching the capital one bowl...nobody aside from those few fan bases give a damn and it’ll continue to be the same group of teams until something changes.

              What I am saying is unless you have something other than what you are saying then, yeah, they can grab anyone they want. Thats how it works. I believe in free markets and deregulating stuff, and I don't think it is much different here. I don't think they are cheating like everyone wants to say they are, I think they are spending their $ better (facilities and supporting staff) and working their butts off while we are investing a whole lot less $ and effort.

                Exactly. Nobody could have beaten tamu this year and definitely nobody could have beaten lsu...

                jeezus man. we literally just played a schedule where a very good coach would have easily only lost one game and you're pretending like it's impossible.

                  As long as we're considering that the players had a hand in this too:
                  - vs ATM, our defense was horrid but even after all of that we had the ball and the lead and couldn't run out the clock because our RB coughed it up.
                  - vs Oklahoma, the players lost the bowl game because they quit. Both before the game (i.e. "opt outs") and during the game. (side note: This new system has created a very hated by-product where teams, that don't make the playoffs, quit.)
                  - the loss to LSU is inexcusable

                  Don't take any of the above as an excuse of any sort, to include making one for the Head Coach. It's simply food for thought.

                    Do all of y'all feel really bad about yourselves now? Look at the title of this thread "Likely will fall out of the top 10". Shame on all of you. We held steady at number 10 all day long. Have a little faith in Dan!!!!!

                    Players always have a hand. At this level players are gonna make some amazing plays and they're gonna make some shltty plays. But we're talking about if any coach could win those games, right? A better gameplan by our DC doesn't even have it as a 1 score game vs tamu. And a better RB coach doesn't have Davis as the guy with ball.

                    The same could be said about players opting out. uo had players out too and I bet they wish they weren't playing us, but they showed up. Teams all over the country adopt the mentality of the staff, which is why we see it shift with coaching changes so frequently. So why can't we get guys motivated? Maybe bc the HC pretended like the game didn't matter, bc some guys opted out. Again, it's reasonable to assume that a HC that didn't have such a pu$$y mentality and a DC that didn't suck at coaching could have won, or at least not gotten us completely embarrassed. Also, if we're going to use the 'players out' excuse, then it just makes lsu way worse and would be even more evidence that a competent coach could have won that game.

                    Either way, plenty of reason to think we could have easily had a zero loss regular season and two close losses in bonus games. We didn't, which is why some people are *****ing. Other people think being embarrassing is completely ok, bc at least we won the other 8.

                        I was good with the fact the globalists had persevered and we were now accepting of our fate as a croquet mallet/saddle shoes elitist university. Then Ox sprung the news. He’s decided to flip the Political and Main Sports forums, moving the latter behind a paywall, in acknowledgement of the unyielding decline in football.

                        The good news is the new Political Recruiting Forum is already overflowing with interest. The number of available 5-star radical leftists and white nationalists has exceeded even our wildest expectations.

                        Gotta move with the times, so here we go.

                          Tired ass excuses. the usual "they pay the players" or "they is too dumb to come to Florida" (while Dildo takes nonqualifiers and juco-bound kids and transfers who were walkons at Toledo).

                          Same shiit ND and everyone else said about us in the 90s and those two good years under Meyer.

                          The coaches in 49 other states WISH they had the talent in their back yard we have and wish they were the flagship in Fla or Texas.

                          We have agarbage admin that hires medicore at best coaches and have pocketed 130-150 million a year for 30 years while slumlording and crying poverty the whole way.

                          Fuchs your excuses and your trailerpark king athletic dept.

                            There is nothing resembling talent in that shytshow of a mouthbreathing, window licking conspiracy fruitloop QA buffoons. His freed voices are three fuchstarded rejects. Even for whacktards it isnt a talented group. Some of those whackadoodles at least make funny signs or memes.

                            They only interesting part is watching the morons hyperventilating when their 1000th cookoo prediction flops like all the rest.

                            And checking to see if a few have been arrested or eaten a bullet yet. My money is on the latter for a couple of them.

                                Me too.... except Dildo did not quit because the players opted out. The players opted out after Dildo announced he was going on vacation again instead of prepping for the first fuchsing Cotton Bowl in our history.
