    Great post again @cover2. I was looking forward to this today. Agree on all points.

    What's your take on Rashad Torrence? This guy was everywhere yesterday. Reminds me of a Greenard, Ahmad Black type of player on defense

      Perkins played well and has earned a starting spot . I wish they would move
      Travez to safety because it would get Torrance off the field . I expect he and Helm will get roasted on Saturday.

      It was good to see Diwun Black fly down the field on kickoff and knock the hell out of the return man . Between this young man and Wingo looking lost out there whenever he’s playing backer it’s clear we aren’t optimizing our talent level on defense . Thanks Todd .

      Don’t recall seeing much on Miller. Think he got dinged because we saw a lot of Hopper . He played well at times and will need to continue to do so . Moon picked up where he left off last week .‘putting in another damn fine performance . Maybe after all these years it’s finally coming together for Jeremiah .

      Not much more to say about Emory . We see the same mistakes again and again . The inability to asses what he is seeing . Even when he’s making the right choice often times he’s late . Which has led to disaster . There are things Dan can do to
      Help him ,using bootlegs and stop asking him to scan the whole field for example.

      Obviously Richardson gives us the best chance to win . It’s hard to fathom why a sane man would continue to argue otherwise. I don’t feel very good about this coming Saturday . Especially if #5 is taking the snaps.

        No, that’s what he & AR will focus on this week, all week.

        “AR, this is how you buckle the helmet. Now go practice this 20,000 times this week while I teach EJ how to stand like a statue in the pocket. Oh, AR, don’t forget the Bama game starts at 7:30, so get to the stadium around 6:45.”

          Maybe Dan is planning on playing AR the entire game but is just saying EJ’s the starter to fool Bama.


          :bwahaha:

          Nah, nevermind, he’s not that clever.

            That’s a big part of Mullen’s problem. He thinks it’s his job to coach these guys up over 4-5 years so they make it to the NFL and hopefully have a modicum of success. He doesn’t seem to understand that his actual job is to put the best team possible on the field to win football games and championships for Florida…right now.

              Did Mullinz help Trash get to the NFL? He cost him tens of millions with his bullshtt with LSU and Oklahoma. Did he help the WRs with first or second day talent by giving them few receptions and a 4-6 draft pick?

              Ask Trevon Grimes how much he helping by ignoring basically any skill other than blocking.

                No, but HE THINKS that’s his job, regardless of how ineffective he is at actually doing it.

                I guess when he’s got Dak Prescott as his proof source, well, he must be right. Except that maybe Dak is a 1st rounder, not a 4th, if he didn’t play for fvvcktard and maybe, just maybe, Dak made Dipshyt Dan, not the other way around (kind of like Tom Brady & Charlie Weis).

                  I’ve been wondering this as well. I thought EJ played pretty decently in the first half, and was pleasantly surprised on the TD throw to Henderson. But it’s almost as if he got in the locker room at half time, had some time to think, and came to the conclusion that while he had played well, AR was spectacular and he better light it up in 2nd half. Consequently, he started thinking too much.

                  Too be fair to him, there were also a couple of impressive throws that receivers couldn’t haul in in the 2nd half. (Shorter and Wells I think.) I don’t know very much about proper footwork and technique, but I know enough that he looks terrible at times. It also looked to me that on both pics the receivers were open, but the throws were waaaaay too late.

                      The criminal who allowed his school to sell brownies to pay for his plane ticket.

                      That still burns my ass. NCAA and our AD can DIAF.

                      All while Trailerbammer and NCAA ignore their players driving Escalades and finding hundreds of thousands from their "uncle".

                        There are only 4 outcomes where we win this game.
                        1. Alabama has a we are Marshall event
                        2. AR starts and is healthy
                        3. Ej starts but is pulled after the first series.
                        4. Alabama mistakes us for Auburn and let's us win

                            I don’t recall enough positive plays to have paid a lot of attention to him. See that he has made a few tackles in two games. As a sophomore safety who presumably was coached by the previous safeties coach, I’m not confident that there was a great amount of fundamentals imparted, refined, and repped sufficiently based on the overall play of the secondary last year and thus far. I read where he played at Marietta HS and was a member of their 2019 state champs, so he comes from a good HS program and has experienced success. Hopefully we’ll start seeing some tangible improvement under Coach McGriff’s leadership. The start, I believe, thus far hasn’t been real swift.

                              That ‘19 Marietta team was stacked with talent including Arik Gilbert, BJ Ojulari, and Harrison Bailey. I believe they got in some trouble with the GHSA for some recruiting shananigans.

                                That was the story. There’s always been recruiting in HS football, but it’s more in your face these days. Lee County, north of Albany, have had good harvests these last few years and have the resources to avoid scrutiny. Buford is another that is able to get a lot of talent to relocate.

                                  The problem remains the scheme.

                                  All Dwagtham's defenses have looked the same way.

                                    In my neck of the woods, Roswell has been known to “find” a few kids from outside the district. Worst of all is Grayson over in Loganville.
                                    I really shouldn’t complain though as my kids went to Blessed Trinity. Their graduating class of about 250 kids had five D 1 football players including one to OSU and one to ND.

                                            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.
