    No one wants him, especially us.

      Or if you want to lose to UGA multiple times?

        He’d be better served to stay at WSU.

          Paul Finebaum just said that MSU personnel are on the ground in key west meeting with the pirate. Might be a good fit - certainly entertaining. Definitely sounds like Grantham is out.

            If they wanted Dwagchoker, he would already be in Starkhell.

              The concern would be if teams would run against even numbers, which they did. Most noticeably, lsu, bc we couldnt stack the box. if we dont look at it that way, then we dont factor in that our tiny front contributed to fromm having one of his better days against us.
              I was a big supporter of the Hev hire, but have def been in a thread recently discussing how much heat he should be taking. Hard to argue that he would have needed to recruit lights out to have a much better 2019 OL though.
              His 3 shutouts is actually why I dont GAF about the top D rating...it was accomplished by destroying shlt opponents, which gave him some wiggle room for other teams to play us well. He def isnt 'bad'. But he definitely deserves a large chunk of the blame for the safety play.

                I'm all for upgrading. Name names.
                I prefer an aggressive gambling defense over bend and eventually break.
                And despite warning of apocolyptic doom that any team with a pulse would run on us unhindered it never came to pass. UGA ran for a blistering 119 yards.
                I find it odd that the oline was atrocious this year yet Heversey gets a pass by the self proclaimed board experts. It's the players not the coach we're told. And yet TG finished with a #9 ranked defense and pitched 3 shutouts this year. If not for safety play there wouldn't be much to bytch about. Maybe we should start with getting rid of English and see what happens before we throw out the 300 lb baby with the bath water. .

                  she will ensure major penetration and plenty of sacks taken. i would think this would excite you.

                        This was posted by 247's Robbie Faulk late yesterday,

                        One source said that Grantham badly wants his start to run his own program and he believes that he could have success at MSU. Over the weekend, Grantham reached out to several people around MSU’s program including former players and those in the city of Starkville to express that further.

                        It could happen. From the names mentioned, I'd hire him over them. Hiring a guy like Judge would be stupid.

                          Born and raised in FL and resided here first 30 years. Moved out of FL in 1990.

                          Lived in LA from late 1999 to mid 2008, some of the best years of my life. Would move back in a heartbeat if a job allowed me to.

                          moved back to FL in March 2019.

                            Yes, LSU for my MS...

                            However, the only LSU thing I have in the house is my Diploma.

                            And if UF is not in it, I pull for LSU. The same for the Saints but I follow very little NFL.

                            My grand kids call me Papa Gator.

                              Yep. Imagine going on a job interview w/ a Stanford undergrad degree and a masters from Miss State. It would probably be cause for elimination for contention for the job.

                                Mike Leach ranks the SEC mascots as only he can

                                Leach walks though the SEC and discusses how a bulldog stacks up with all the mascots. Entertaining as ever. Of significant note... much like the rest of the SEC and the rest of CFB, Leach forgets Tinerc.

                                            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.
