      They may have the resources but they sure as hell don't have the coach, which is by far the most important piece.

        Once again, if they truly want it they can afford it. Coulda went after anyone out there if they were as committed as Bama, but they’re not.

          Are we still "probably finishing outside the top 10"?

            Cry me a river.
            "It's hard to be the best".
            "It's not fair that the teams who put the most effort in recruiting get the players".
            "Redistribute the wealth" .

            I'll never understand liberal loser logic. Under performers always complain that the system isn't fair.
            For fuchs sake. The formula is pretty simple. Put the effort in and you'll be rewarded.

              Hahahahaha....someone is triggered and completely wrong! Keep lying to yourself, keep *****ing that it’s on Dan or “insert past or future coach here”! It’s pretty obvious if the NFL allowed 4-5 teams to scoop up all the first round picks every draft we’d pretty much have a good idea who the hell is going to be in the playoffs no? I mean hell, this board has been crying the same tune for 10 years now! Let’s revisit this in 2025 to look back and see what teams are in the playoffs every year and how 125 out of 130 D1 teams just “didn’t put in the effort”!

                You of all people should see the reality of it since you got duped over and over again with secret commits. Its so obvious and easy to see yet you want to blame the other teams that are working hard instead of seeing what is truly happening. Mullen and his staff are lazy recruiters. They don't even go after the big fish unless its in a state on the other side of the country. They have made no real effort at all in locking down the state.

                  I had to stop lurking because the depths to which it goes over there is a long spiral down. It is the perfect example of how some can take a kernel of truth and turn it into a mountain of BS. Pretty much like the recruiting board on gatorcountry.

                    Not denying that they are lazy at all! Where you and some others around here are delusional is that you think it can ever be changed through new hires, facility changes or any other throw spaghetti at wall and hope some **** sticks kind of change. The reality of the situation is we are playing a game against teams that have the refs on their side, nothing you can do will change the outcome of the game.

                      Good Lawdy, you think there is a officiating conspiracy that is to the level of keeping Mullen down and you call me delusional? You have proven over and over to be the delusional one by going over to those pumper paysites then coming over here and talking about secret commits. And nobody is saying anything about nothing would improve if Mullen made some new hires or if the facilities were improved. On the contrary. The problem is, GRANTHAM IS STILL OUR MFING DC AND ALL WE DID IS HIRE A COUPLE OF NEWBIES WHO WILL DO NOTHING BUT WHATEVER GRANTHAM TELLS THEM TO DO! FURTHERMORE, STOP BRINGING UP THE FACILITIES THING BECAUSE WE'LL NEVER KNOW IF IT MATTERS OR NOT BECAUSE MULLEN ISN'T EVEN TRYING TO RECRUIT THE TOP TALENT IN THE STATE!

                        You're not very smart are you, my analogy had nothing to do with the actual officials and people like you have been *****ing about something for the last 10 years, not just the Mullen era.

                              While it's true the playoffs, for the most part, are the same teams over and over again with the occasional guest star (FSU, Notre Dame, etc.) recruiting is only one of the components. Several schools have recruited well and still failed to make the playoffs. Ugly is the most notable example. The year they lost in the title game (2018) their freshmen were part of the #3 recruiting class in the country. The next three years in a row they had the #1 class. What do they have to show for it? Two SEC East "titles" in '18 & '19 s and a second place in the division finish in '20. Coming into WiLLLLLLLie's first season in Tallacrappee, his roster was made up of guys from the #3, #2, #5, & #10 recruiting classes ('15-'18 respectively); how'd that turn out?

                              Yes, 'Bama, tOSU, & Clemson, for the most part, have all recruited lights out the last few years, but they've done everything else lights out as well. To me the guarantee in recruiting is you won't win if you don't recruit well, but recruiting well is no sure thing of success. (To that point, what do you think last season would have been like for the Gators with better coaching on the defensive side of the ball? The aTm and LSU games could easily gone the other way. Had that happened and the SEC game played out the same way, there's a good chance UF would have been in the playoff. Sure, we might have been one and done, but so what? Let's say last year's UF team had several more star players, but without the right coaching would it have been enough?)

                                @Mr2Bits Can you clarify if you're still arguing your mullenesque point or if you've now moved the goalposts to us not being able to compete with bama? This is what you said that started this.
                                But now you're giving examples of NFL teams with every top pick. So are you arguing about people bltching that we lost to bama or that we lost to lsu when they dressed 17 people and then looked like a hs team vs okie?

                                  Triggered? Only the likes of Sas, Corch and their ilk don't know when to properly use the triggered meme.
                                  Did you bythch about unfair recruiting in the 90's when Spurrier was bringing in top classes? Or the 2000's when Meyer did the same? Did you think we should give some of our recruits to the lesser teams?

                                  We all play by the same rules. That's equality. That doesn't guarantee equality of outcome. Those who work the hardest at recruiting are going to reap the rewards. I prefer a system where rewards are possible based on effort. Not a system where it's the random luck of the draw.

                                  Bama is kicking ass in recruiting because they work harder. They want it more. I for one think that's great because it means if we want it more we can out recruit them. That's the way it's suppose to work. Not by sitting on your ass and relying on the bounce of a ping pong ball. You commie pinkos are all the same. A firing squad is too good for ya.

                                    These are the same kind of BS excuses that filled the 80s... we are good enough but everyone else is cheating. It's not a level play field. If you expect to be someone's btch you'll end up that way... Excuses are for losers. We have hired three losers in a row, and without a change in administration, we'll hire another after Mullen.

                                    There are only a hand full for of the 130+ teams that have the financial resources that UF has. Only a handful of team that reside in the a state with a the amount of talent that is in the state of Florida. There are no excuses for the lack of commitment outside of we just aren't trying. The rest of this BS argument is just lazy btch ass excuses.

                                      I'm not moving any goalposts. The reality of the situation is that the last decade has been lost because of **** coaching, crappy recruiting, and a lack of investment in any kind of modern infrastructure. We missed the cool kids club by a decade and are now trying to catch up but won't. Why you or any of the others around here think that's going to all of a sudden change with new coaches, harder workers, new buildings,etc......it is a waste of time. The reality is we are 1 of the 124 teams starring up at 5-6 others that will continue to own the playoffs and win every year unless something outside of our control levels the playing field.

                                      Bama/Clemson have won 5 of the last 7 championship games, expect this trend to continue unless composite caps are put on recruiting and something is done. 19 of the 34 5 stars went to 3 teams, Bama getting 7, OSU 5 and UGA 4......this is the same crap the 124 fanbases see every year and its starting to make the product boring.

                                      Do you enjoy watching the playoffs on replay every year with different names out there?
