If you knew what 2 years into Mullen would be, would you have taken it?

      Have you watched us the last decade? It’s night and day, ass. If you haven’t enjoyed the past 2 seasons after the previous decade then you should just hang it up.

        I'll never forgive him for the UK loss.imo he's been better than what we had with Mac/WM but is closer to Zook than Meyer and SOS.

        Right now.


        SOS
        Meyer
        Mullen
        Zook












        WM




        Mac





        If he doesn't beat UGA and LSU consistently and fire The dead weight. 2nd place ,& 10 wins is a hollow achievement. So yes

          I thought 8-5 in 2010 was a blip on the radar...same with 7-6 in 2011....then got semi hard about a 11-2 in 2012....and so on. Want to know what those years and every year since then has in common? It's called LACK of balance...
          I'll get the full boner when I see the following..
          Facilities
          Balanced and appropriate recruiting
          An offense that consistently moves the ball through the air AND on the ground
          A base defense that isn't scattershot all over the place to try compensate for missing basic components
          And a mentality that leaves no doubt that we are going to crush the opposing teams hopes and dreams starting on the LOS.....

            Really we are. It starts with changing the perception in our state. You have um alum calling for a removal of Diaz. You have talk of Norvell getting blocked in SoFla schools and topend players leaving those schools. Again, I don’t really care what a particular ranking says. It is quite obvious that we are trending in the state right now, and that’s not even considering the portal. As I said, it’s not a turn-on-dime moment like 2005, but it’s clearly turning. I don’t think anyone would disagree that UF is winning the state right now.

                  Shocking that Swonksters isn't giving Mullen any credit or spelling his name right either. No word from Itraz either to bring the positive mood of the thread down. Why are you talking about Miami, Tenn, and FSU? Last time I checked we are crushing each team on the field and in recruiting. I didn't see where either team finished ahead of us in recruiting rankings or beat us on the field these last 2 years. You keep saying that Mullen is a 5 loss coach. Sorry but we have not seen that at UF from him either. Are we where we want to be at 15-0? No, not yet, but we are sure as heck light years ahead of where we were at 2 years ago before Mullen. Time for you to start singing, 2 bits and get up and go! Mullen has exceeded expectations by shaping and molding a down and out program and very quickly at that. He is not done yet either by adding a lot more talent this recruiting cycle and now within the last couple of days with a big time WR and a couple of transfers and still more to come. Its Great to be a Florida Gator! Sing it with me now!

                    Yes. Things are better and trending upward. Yes we need to win an SEC in next two years but ask the question again in two years.

                    But again, who should we have hired two years ago? Confused on how anyone would say we messed by not hiring ________ that year. Willing to listen though.

                      This is the argument I don't get. The fact the a few or a lot of people expected it has no bearing. The reality is that tons of people expected that bc UF with average coaching is a 9-win team with the schedule we've had. Slightly above coaching and you're a 10-win team. it's the same with oregon, bc of their schedule and a good QB. I'm sure oregon fans are saying how amazing cristobol is, but the truth is that he's done a ok job. Scott Satterfield has probably done the best job recently since he didnt inherit a team that should necessarily have a winning record.

                      Regardless, this issue if Gator Fans being shellshocked from butters/muschamp also shows in the answers to this question. Whether you would still take Mullen 'should' be based on if, at this point, u think hes a championship coach. I get it if that's the opinion, but I dont get a 'yes' with the reason being, 'bc hes made us respectable'.

                        Yes, I'd still prefer Mullen over each yahoo since 2011.

                            I was glad when Mullen left during Myers tenure and I was not happy when he was hired. However, after reviewing the Spurrier and Myer years there is a distinct difference. Georgia always out-recruited Spurrier but Spurrier always out-coached them. Myer was a ferocious recruiter and typically out-coached them. Mullen is recruiting at a good pace and his coaching is on par if not better than Kirby's. We will not know if Mullen can match Georgia's recruiting and coaching for at least 2 more years. I think a combination of coaching and recruiting prowess will not prove itself for another 2 years. Right now, I hope Mullen will prove to be the right choice even if that makes me wrong for opposing his hire as the Gator's head ball coach..

                              What are your expectations of a coach at UF?
                              I'm seriously asking.
                              If an average coach gets 9 wins and an above average coach gets 10, what would satisfy you?

                              edit: I'm speaking in terms of wins. Not milestones.

                                They want to be 15-0 with a margin of victory of 45 points a game. We all do but its not realistic. They dwell on the negative and are never pleased with anything. Heck some admitted that the Ole Miss loss in 08 is what haunts them the most during the NC season.

                                    I think what would satisfy me is the same for many: the hope of elite seasons. I dont need more 11 wins. I'd be satisfied if I didn't think we got outcoached by the good teams and if I didn't think we'd always be limited by things like hiring friends over good coaches.

                                    muschamp sucked as a coach, but u cant argue that he wanted to be elite. did every little things and made any change he deemed necessary. just werent the right ones. I think Mullen is a good enough coach, but he's yet to show he'll leave no stone unturned.

                                          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.
