        Other than it being Vandy, it is nice to see the offensive output. I just wish we would t pucker inside the 10 yard line.

          No. Da*n. Kidding. And its a pleasure to see a head coach have his head in the game. I think Mullen actually talks to somebody in that headset.

              Did we score points? I was too busy counting yards.

                It's great to have a team that doesn't panic again. 0.0% chance they come back under the last two coaches.

                  Gators averaging 34 points a game before today. 44th nationally. They showed this stat at the start of the game. In '08 We averaged 36 a game which was 8th nationally.
                  My mind is blown that we ran 92 plays. That's incredible. The offense line played well at times. Very balanced offense.

                    Resilience. It’s when you’re being kicked in the n*ts and you get up and take ownership. We needed a game like this. Especially before the Dawgs.

                      Aggressive playcalling coupled with dynamic ball carriers. Mullen's letting the puppies breathe.

                      Ms. Chomp should do the same.

                        This is with a roster that was 4-8 last year. Thats both an indictment on butters and a compliment to Dan. We navigated a minefield. Just look at how the othet coaches are doing

                          We also lost one of if not our best defensive player in Joseph and the D really didn't flinch. I like the mentality of this team a lot.

                          I honestly thought we were going to win something like 49-10. If it weren't for the TO's the score is probably as lopsided as that. Good win nonentheless

                              Honestly we should be able to use this as evidence in a fraud case against st Butters and get some money back.,

                                It is nice to see the production UF got today. It was equally or better to see that UF had the confidence in its offense to run it down 18 points in the first half.

                                  It's not just the points, but the way we scored and the way we set up the scores. One big play after another. Mullen is giving his playmakers the chance to get in space and break it open.

                                        My first thoughts on seeing the yardage: look at the total, and look at that balance.

                                          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.
