    See, this falls into the "Kirby can't coach" comment/excuses people make to justify OUR sh*tty recruiting. Kirby may or may not be a good coach, but he damn well knows how to recruit. I don't think Dabo is a great coach, but he can recruit and has landed several dynamic QBs. If just one of these 5-star QBs pans out for UGA there's enough talent there to win a title. He's won an SEC title and made the playoff. If he knocks off Alabama in the title game, he likely doesn't have to see them again in the playoff. In this day and age, you need a stout OL & DL....and a dynamic QB. It's much easier to find a dynamic QB when they're all 5-stars (vs. taking 3-star/low 4-stars like Mullen).

        The shttshows at Clowntown and Cocaineland should have set us up another decade of domination.

        Instead we hire three potatoes and end up sniff ass ourselves.

          *almost win

          He hasn't won anything yet so we have to move the goal posts to almost won an SEC Championship. Or it can be worded if it wasn't for Davis fumbling, that guy throwing a shoe and we came 6 points away from beating Bama.

          What the F does that have to do with our avg at best recruiting?

              Both things can be true, you know. Kirby cant coach and Mullinz sucks at almost everything.

                #1 TE...but he's from uga. We could make it to being a hat on the table though. The #2 TE is from Athens so theres a chance uga can only take one. In that case, we have a solid chance of being 2nd behind bama.

                  We already took the #889th ranked player (TE), why would we go after a top 100?

                  Seriously though, hopefully we get Skinner. He's just as good as Delp. Have to hope Clemson doesn't put the full court press on him though.

                    lol.... we brought back at Butterriffic position coach?

                    actually, I don't hate this hire. He seemed to work at least. Wasn't particularly successful, but at least he was trying.

                    Gators add Corey Bell to off-field staff

                    Article is vague. He never found a job after being fired with Butters?

                      This. He didn't land another on-field job, so he took the recruiting staff job. I'm surprised he didn't land an analyst job somewhere (Tenn w/ Heupel? Or CMU w/ Butters?). Has Randy Shannon landed anywhere?

                      It's not a bad hire, as he has ties to south Florida...but he'll be gone within a year I imagine. He'll either land another on-field job or go somewhere to be an analyst.

                      why? you think his resume got better?

                      I thought he was a terrible hire for a position coach. But he was always in the news as visiting this or that player almost always.

                      This may help. It's not like we are going to be hiring former NFL or P5 HC coaches or coordinators.

                        No, but it's a fraternity. The Heupel hire was a little late in the off-season hiring cycle. Most of the openings had been filled. I'm sure he's going to be jockeying for a job by mid-October through November (when the firings start happening). He's got buddies in the industry, but I don't think he's ever coached outside of the state of Florida.

                        He was available for Butters to hire. And hasn't landed a job for three years, dude.

                        He was on the UCF staff the last two years. (edit: last 3 years)

                        OK. I guess this clusterfuchs of a sentence was supposed to say at UCF.

                        Before his return back to UF in an off field role as the assistant director of player personnel, Bell served as the cornerbacks coach from 2018 until this past season.

                        It's common for coaches to leave a G5 school and not take many of their coaches to their new P5 job. Heupel didn't bring a single defensive coach w/ him from UCF. I think Butters only brought one assistant from CSU to UF - but then he went and hired a bunch of G5 assistants.
