    She said you asked her to wear a strap-on and let you call her Dan. When she asked why, you said that bc its not gay if it's a woman doing it to you and that that was a fact.

          His recruiting is lazy because his staff lazy. His defense is horrible because his DC is horrible. I couldnt care less if he got to 29 wins before Spurrier or Meyer. He should have gotten to 32 wins but because he won't make changes to his coaching staff he is failing.

            I'm generally a Mullen supporter and think the criticisms here are often way over the top. I've talked at length about how we tend to look back on the 90s with all the negatives taken out, but seemingly do the opposite with the current era. So as I said, I tend to give him a lot more credit than some on this board.

            Having said that, the problem as I see it, is two-fold. One, as @ltraz said, he's surrounded himself with bad coaches, and one who even if he'd turned out to be good, was literally hated by much of Gator Nation going in. That's a big roll of the dice with a 6mil salary at stake, and not surprisingly, it has backfired. Secondly, his recruiting efforts have been dismal. Notice I'm not strictly judging final production, as I think the admin and program is doing him no favors in that regard. But it's the lack of intensity--the exact opposite of what he preached day one--that bothers me. I still think he's likely the best option for the time being, and hope he can take the next step. The last thing I want is Stricklin being in charge of another search. But those things I can't defend.

              All I know is that Donkey is always wrong. So I expect 4000 passing yards next year.

                Dan Mullen is the only coach in history to be joyfully thrilled to no longer have to start the leading passer in the nation. It would only make sense if Trask we're a locker room cancer, but he's good, respectable person.

                    Just wanted to say that I am a refugee from Gator Reddit. That place is a wretched hive of scum and pumpery. I am thrilled to find a place where Gator fans can speak openly about our worthless lazy coaching staff.

                      He actually won exactly how most on here wanted him to win: with a Gator passing offense. The problem is that he lost exactly how everybody didn't want him to lose: with an embarrassing D due to hiring buddies that he knew were mediocre, followed by embarrassing behavior. He followed that with exactly what nobody wanted in the off-season of waving goodbye to the offensive talent he was gifted while making the exact wrong coaching moves to fix the D.

                      People said he was a mediocre coach. Then he loses 4 games, 2 of which were extremy embarrassing, and the pumpers are just "but he won other games so let's ignore that". He does nothing to fix the recruiting that will just make it harder for the next guy and its just "let's wait and see". The 'wait and see' is how we're irrelevant for a decade and will see uga win big before UF.

                      You're either in the group of really wanting UF to be elite or you're not. Mullen isn't and he doesn't have the talent to make up for a lack of 'want to'.

                          I know we typically have a pretty strict “pics or it didn’t happen” rule on here. But can we get an exception made on this one?

                          Thanks.

                            "Fastest to 29 wins" may be a statistical fact, but acting like it tells the entire story is ludicrous - which you know.

                              So you have no qualms with him fielding the worst defense statistically in the last hundred years, never finishing in the top 7 in recruiting, or finishing with three straight losses, two of which were epic embarrassments?

                              He managed to lose 4 games last year with the top passing offense in the country and one of the most productive offenses in school history. I think we just want to win and not watch our team embarrass themselves multiple times a year.

                                You are all looking at the negative, just think how much better the defense will look only being on the field for 20 minutes a game.

                                        Well-said.

                                        I wasn't a fan of the Mullen hire, but he's done a lot of good in the first 3 seasons and had me cautiously optimistic.

                                        He got us over the UGAy hump this year and to the SEC Championship (postives); but that LSU loss was just completely inexplicable for an "elite" coach to have. Simply something that does not, cannot, and should not ever happen to an elite coach. Period.

                                        It was a lack of preparation and focus from top to bottom; and that is on him and no one else. Instead of holding Wilson accountable (benching him for the first series of the SEC Championship to prove a point to the team), he makes him a Captain. For a coach that wants to peach about setting a standard and holding everyone accountable to it...he completely failed at multiple points this season in doing what he says.

                                          This was a well reasoned & well thought out post.

                                          What's it doing here?
