I don't want to hear about NIL or portal or any other excuse. Teams and staffs should improve. Coaches make too much money to be this bad. At this point the organization needs to do whatever is needed to be at least good with being excellent the goal. Excuses are like a$$holes, everybody got one. Time is up in Hog Towne.

Here is how I see 2023 playing out.

Napier's seat starts getting warm if we do not leave Utah with a W, an L makes for 4 in a row and gator Nation starts getting real nasty.
McNeese and Tinerc are MUST Wins, lose either and the noise gets real loud, meetings with Bull gators are convened.
Charlotte will be a tune up for another must win game and a revenge game against UK.
4 -1
record keeps him on salary, anything less and the flood ($$$) gates open.
Vandy is an absolute Win and it better be by at least 21
USCe again another pressure game for Billy, and all three facets of the game better be dialed in.
Lose either of these and he is gone!
6 - 1
still alive
UGA oh hell, he gets a pass here, if still standing
6 -2
ARK
, LSU & Mizzou make or break his tenure, all winnable, if he makes it.
8 - 3 he good, 7 - 4 / 6 - 5 and bye bye Billy...and take the preppy whimp Strychnine with you
FSU/SOW
a W buys him another season and an L is a death sentence.

My guess is 7-5 and next Christmas we will be begging to get the next Deion Sanders....what say you?

I agree with 7-5, but I don't think Napier is going anywhere until the end of 2024 at the earliest and 2025 most likely. I do know he will be unemployed sooner if he keeps Toney. We will never win anything of consequence with Toney associated with the program.

Bowl game or not. Today was an embarrassment on National TV and MacAfee will be laughing about the end on his show Monday. Count on it. He has like 4m daily viewers now. This was a REALLY bad look.

This disaster is ours for probably three years minimum. Remember, we didn't just buy a coach, we also bought a pRoCeSs and InFrAsTrUcTuRe and NaPiER's ArMy of assistants. It's going to take "time" for Napier to "get his people in place" and to "recruit the players that fit his system" and we can't rightly judge him after just one year because "he's working with the prior coach's leftovers" even though that somehow didn't affect the new coaches at TCU, LSU, USC, Oregon, even Notre Dame.

After this year we'll see some low-level coaches thrown into the volcano. After next year, higher-level reshuffling at the OC/DC level. After year three, there are no scapegoats left.

We’ve heard the comment “Trust the process” countless times as it relates to giving Billy time to build the program. Many posters here on this board have regurgitated this comment as they blindly hang on Billy’s every word. The administration and the media have also repeated this statement countless times.

The reality is that this comment is a silly platitude that is designed to quell criticism of the staff & buy them time to milk the school for tens of millions of dollars. After all, it’s pretty difficult to challenge such a vague statement until years later when, after trusting the process, you realize the process yielded shytty results. You can’t blame this season on poor performance by the staff because a season like this is just part of the process. After all, Nick Saban lost to a Louisiana directional school his first year at Bama…it’s part of the process. You just need to trust said process.

What happens when the process is a crummy process to start with? Or the process is good but those running the process actually suck and don’t know squat about how to effectively run a process? I’ll tell you what happens…6-7, losing to KY, TN, LSU, UGA, FSU, VANDY & Bucky the Fcvking Beaver!

I’m sick of hearing this nonsense. We’re on our 4th shytty head coach in a row. Nothing about this season indicates positive steps in the right direction. Something’s gotta give. Discuss.

This “process” we are to trust will never result in more than 8 wins in a season and in fact will result in riding the struggle bus to bowl eligibility every season.

Hire stupid Sun Belt coaches, win Sun Belt level prizes.

I see a 6 or 7 wins, unless we land a stud in the portal at QB. Matthews has been saying on the radio that we need to win at least 9 next year. Hard to see that happening. I don't think 6-6 gets Billy fired, I think the seat will be warm though. Stricklin is gonna have a long leash on Billy, because he knows it's his ass too. Hopefully this new president wants a winning football program, and just doesn't care about academics like the last one. Doubt Billy could survive 3 average football seasons though, he's a likable guy and I want him to succeed, but he really looks in over his head. Staff changes need to happen, and he needs help in play calling, and a real special teams coach!! If he rolls into next year with basically the same approach he had this year, then it had better damn well look a 1000% better or he's sealed his fate. This is the offseason to make the changes, is he gonna be a stubborn ass**** like our last 3 coaches? Time will tell. This season started on such a high note, and ended terribly. Don't know the last coach that started his first season at UF with a losing record. Sure is gonna suck seeing Ugay win back to back on top of this, and seeing the Clowns show life and Scum killing us on the trail. It really sucks right now, not sure it's gonna get better anytime soon. Here's hoping it does. GO GATORS!!!
