Did the players quit because they are moping about Mac?

4-7 under Doug Dickey or 0-10-1 in Pell's first year were pretty miserable. But this is pretty bad because we thought we had the talent and the coaching. While Mac may have sown the seeds of his demise early in his tenure, as early as in his first year, even before Grier's problem, we thought this year could be good. I think it fell apart with the suspended-9, and progressed from there. We have a lot of freshman and juniors on this team, and I'd love to see what a new coach, like Frost, could do.
No... WE did not. You may have, but I had seen enough of Mac’s teams to know better.

We deserve better. And I don't mean that to sound arrogant as some accuse fans of. I mean, the school, the players, the fans, everybody deserves a lot better.

You get what you earn. We hired a loser and we’re all losers right now because of it. Gotta hire the right guy this time.

This team has had quit in them since late 2015. Their coach basically quit on them and most teams take their on their coach’s persona. Not sure what anyone expected a failed HC as interim was gonna get changed in 5 days, but I had a feeling this was it. We’ve got a couple of years of rebuilding with the RIGHT hire.
yup.....sad but true. The talent level is mediocre at best and some of these guys have 2 plus years invested in a train wreck of bad habits, little accountability, little or no inspiration or fire from their HC or I suspect their position coaches....

I signed up for an account just so I could post that this was the most pathetic showing buy a Gator team that I've ever seen. "The Speech" by Tebow seems so, so long ago. Damnit.

Anyone who doesn't want to play balls-out should be released from their scholarship at this point. Let walk-ons play to finish the season if that's what it takes.

Do you think these guys quit because they just love themselves some Mac?

Discuss.

(Haven't read any further in this thread)

Coaches may suck, play calling may be horrendous, but I cannot tolerate lack of effort. Lost a lot of respect for a lot of Gator players watching that crapshow today, and the bad news for them is that its all on tape for world to see.

Not much for booing players, but they deserved it today. I'd rather see walk-ons get trampled than see what I witnessed today.

Worst display of Gator football I can remember. Complete and utter embarrassment.

If I was a coach, they'd spend all day tomorrow running stadiums until they puked.

And then make them clean it up.

One more thing, every single player who failed to give 100% effort on the field, I'd take every piece of Gator gear they had. Ain't worthy to wear that name or logo......

Just another reason why we need a coach that is going to come in here and kick some ass. Clear the garbage out and make these guys earn everything. No buddy-buddy nonsense, no "players" coaches.

That guy is still a pumper. These same kids will be a year older and still not good enough. Mac sucked at recruiting and you're seeing it on the field.

This might be the worse coached team we have had since when? Ever? I blame the coaches not the Kids.

Remove the Gators logo off the helmets and remove player names from the jerseys for the remainder of the season. Players will have to earn to have those things returned.

It’ll never happen, but that’s not a bad idea.

@ThomasGoldkamp: He quickly deleted it, but #Gators punter Johnny Townsend upset with @FloridaGators "nothing to see here" tweet. (1/2)

@ThomasGoldkamp: @FloridaGators He tweeted, essentially, we work too hard to have our own brand bash us (paraphrasing).
