      Let me start off by saying I was firmly entrenched in support of Mullen. However, with the three episodes this year that Cousin Eddie has had, that has changed.First the whining at ATM, then the fight with Missoula and finally defending POS Wilson. Mullen needs to grow some

          If the coaching staff isn’t willing to embrace accountability, how can you expect the players to?

            We scored 46 and lost. The problem is obvious.

              He is EXACTLY telling them to play 10-12 man off and there isn't a damn thing you can do about stopping a slant from that play call.

              Some of you guys are fccking nuts. You really think Grantham is calling a man press and watching his DBs line up 12 yards deep and let them do it every play?

              This appears to be his answer to third and Grantham. Now it's Slant and Grantham.

              I can't even believe it. It baffles me that you people think that they're out there ad libbing instead of running whatever Grantham called.

                "How Long Does Grantham Last?"

                I'm thinking like 30 seconds on the rare occasion that he can actually find his dick.

                  The fact remains that Wilson should have already been benched for performance reasons alone. If you don't have the balls to do that (and Mullen does not), the shoe incident would have given you proper cover to do so. However, Mullen actually REWARDED Wilson for it, and allowed him to have one of the worst games ever by a UF DB.

                  Never seen anything quite like it.

                    ok, humor me here. Here's a list of actual winners - spurrier, urbs, saban, dabo.

                    Ask yourself the following question, would any of those 4 coaches, if presented with the wilson problem on their watch under the same circumstances, do nothing during the game, make excuses for him after, then trot him out as team captain the following week against the top team in the country?

                    The player's can say what they want, if you start letting them dictate the way it is, you have failed as an HC.

                      I used to be a big Gator basketball fan, but now I’m completely apathetic. Until Mike White is gone, I couldn’t care less about Gator hoops. Sadly, football is heading that same way.

                        That must have been why she was so dry.

                          On a night where we put 46 on alabama. Holding someone under 46 shouldn't be too much to ask.

                            While that may be true, this isn't peewee league. You don't pay someone 6 mil a year to let the player's feelings dictate staffing decisions.

                              Don't like it, and still hope this is just coach speak. But if there's a silver lining it's that after year 4 will be too late to try and make that change. Really, even after this season, would be very late given Grantham's reception from the outset. So if somehow we can improve into at least a functioning unit(like it was in ('18-'19), maybe we're ok. If the other scenario happens, which is much more likely, then I think Law is correct that Mullen's probably safe in '21 but coaching for his job in '22, new DC or not.

                              As I've said many times, I can't imagine having to tell my family that we're moving(again) and losing the best job our family likely will ever get, all because I couldn't bring myself to fire someone who no one likes, and who has interviewed for other jobs in each of his first two offseasons here. There's loyalty and then there's career suicide.

                                To me this is where Mullen either is the guy or not. Grantham has to be addressed. He has to critically look at his coaching staff and assess where they have fallen short. It's hard, I know, especially since he has known him for awhile, but damn, this defense this year has been so unprepared.

                                  We would have won by 3 tds if Trask and company could have played against our defense.

                                  Is fat head todd gone yet?

                                    605 total yards and 52 points. Let’s have a nice round of applause for Todd ... Grantham.

                                                Our community sprung up when the Gatorsports message board was shut down in the summer of 2014. We pride ourselves on offering Gator-biased, yet critical discussion among people of all different backgrounds. We are working every day to make sure our community is the best Gator message board you will find.
