        Exactly. Context matters.

        He got to 9 losses quicker than Spurrier or Meyer too. Also fact.

            It might have been a little easier for him to trust his legs a little more than his arm as a young player player getting shoved into games outta the blue. I'm also not certain that some of those plays he wasn't told to keep it himself especially in 2019 when our running game was sh!t.
            I like EJ but I'm not sure his arm is really any better than AR's. EJ has thrown several nice balls in live games but he has also thrown some really bad ones too...add in the fact that he has gotten knocked out a couple of times while running the ball in limited action action and I'm starting to wonder if AR might not be the better choice if we have to run Mullen's offense.

                Here are two more facts to add to the list:

                - only coach in MSU history to win a bowl game and finish with a losing record
                - 0-10 vs Nick Saban as a head coach

                  BINGO. I have been saying this since Mullenz was hired. With Tennessee and halF asS U down, Mullenz had the easiest schedule for any Gator coach in probably 40 years during his first two seasons. And, I fully expect to lose this season to Alabama, Georgia and LSU. Those loses will make Mullenz 0 - 2 vs. Bama, and 1 - 3 vs. LSU and Georgia. His record vs. ranked opponents is 13 - 38? This has to improve.

                  To be clear, I won’t dispute your last sentence. He has to improve.

                  But UF has consistently had 2 really good teams on its schedule, a couple gritty opponents, and then a bunch of average to below average fluff. It’s just switched from ut, fsu and occasionally Aub or uga in the 90s, to Lsu, uga and occasionally some other random team like Alabama this upcoming year. Mullen’s path may be slightly easier than what guys like Spurrier and Meyer faced, but not by a great deal. And his starting point was far worse.

                  I’ve said before that I’m ok with launching him if we have a definitive upgrade. Especially if we continue to see the 9-10 win but no trophy type years a few more times, and if recruiting doesn’t pick up. So it’s not some blanket endorsement or defense of him. You just can’t base ease or difficulty of a schedule entirely, or even largely, on where the noles and vols are at the moment. It would be as equally flawed as raving that Mullen’s 5-0(6-0)against teams Spurrier was 2-4 against in his first 3 seasons. The story is still the same. It’s the characters that have changed.

                    How many years are you waiting for fuchstard and fuchstodd to start recruiting?
                    And winning something other than 3rd or 4th place in the SEC finishes?

                        Well, originally I was thinking one more season. But since I know it bothers you so much, how could I not go for two?

                        He’s gone from Mullinz, to Dorky Dan, to Dildo Dan. I’m on the edge of my seat to see what’s next.

                          You intended this to be a joke, but I can relate to her way more than the "let's give it another few years" crowd. I don't care how we win; I just want to win. That's why I didnt GAF about all the "look how much he wants to be here" nonsense. He's not a winner and never will be so there's no point in him being here.

                          I'd take that girl over mullen right now. At least she goes and takes what she wants instead of letting her competitiors get theirs first and then foraging for scraps.

                              It was no joke, and she was a spoiled little brat who didn’t appreciate what she had or what it took for her to have it. She was flushed away like the turd she was.

                                  I'm not a fan of the "fastest to 29 wins" narrative. In that same span he also has more losses than the couple of guys he beat for wins. Sounds a bit illogical right? Well it would be if it was an apples to apples comparison but it's not. Dan has a couple more games a season to work with. If Steve or urban had the same number of games as dan does, that "fastest to 29 wins" narrative wouldn't exist.

                                    I always laugh when the "I'm a better fan because I want to be elite more than you" crowd gets rolling.

                                            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.
