    This. It's possible that tg's scheme worked well (most of the time) the previous 2 years because the players understood what they were doing, but it appears most have graduated. This late in the season and tg can't grasp that the current roster is struggling to line up correctly? tg is either stupid, stubborn or both.

        Exactly. I’ll believe it when I see it.

          That obviously wouldn't work given the history. But... Maybe it's time for T Rob to step out from his mentor's shadow.

            I think Grantham is gone. If we've learned anything about Mullen this year it's that he is a blame-diverting weasel. Since there's going to be heat after we get blown out by Bama, and since there's zero chance Mullen says this is on me, I think he will see no option other than to replace him, even though it goes against his tendency to keep bad coaches on his staff.

              I went all over your mom last night.

              But I agree with this. I just don't think Mullen will tell fathead todd to kick it down the road. When you hear excuses like, 'we're just playing great defenses' and 'crowd noise' while we continue to see the same crap on defense get worse all season during a season where he has a chance to hang a banner or two, it just underlines the fact that no changes have been made and no changes will probably be made.

                The defense starts 9 juniors & seniors (the only non-junior or senior is Elam & Cox), several younger players get on the field but most of them were here at least last season. There is NO EXCUSE whatsoever for the clusterfck we've seen this year. Campbell running off the field mad AF last week was very telling - he's a senior and this is year 3 for him in this defense. WTF is going on? It's like they're wearing the wrong wrist bands or something!

                    It makes me feel bad the kids on that side of the ball. They're constantly looking to the sidelines with their hands up in the air. We have some talent on that side of the ball. Obviously not as much as bama but these kids are not getting coached up at all.

                      So, you can confirm I went all over your mom last night, and you admit I paid her but she wants me to have my money back?

                        Again, it isnt that they don't know the place, usually. it is that the plays suck.

                        all these cutesy cornerback blitzes which we think were hiding, and try to have a safety run to cover the X or Z just doesn't work. it's too far to run unless they cheat by lining up outside which tells everyone it's a corner blitz. this bull**** is playing off man or soft his own is mind-numbing. it's the exact opposite of what you would play with a blitz coming because you know the quarterback's going to be throwing some sort of hot read short stop, slant quick out whatever. instead we just give up the world's easiest passes with our defensive backs standing 10-12 yards deep. Ornstanding 10-12 yards deep while they run a fly, fade, post, flaf, whatever.

                        Safety play... I don't even want to talk about it. I'm not even sure exactly what Steiner is supposed to be doing most plays. Robber? But away from everyone? just stepping up two steps for run support? not really in the box, not really playing safety. is he just slow to react? Mindnumbing.

                              The only argument I have for keeping TG is nobody's really played stellar defense this year. That may get him off the hook. I do think if nothing else something should change with the secondary coaching or the high risk reward D we play needs to be toned down some because it's more risk this year than reward.

                              He should have been gone after we set the NCAA record for 3rd and 15 plus conversions allowed last season and he cost us the UGA game!

                                As I’ve said the Todd Grantham conversation comes down to two things:

                                1. The big time boosters, many of whom are more of a they know what Pat Dooley would tell them bunch, in that case, do they demand Grantham gone?

                                2. IF Mullen is that stubborn (TG could have Sandusky’d and not been fired mid season), his fate is tied directly to that of TG.

                                        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.

                                        The management works very hard to make sure the community is running the best software, best designs, and all the other bells and whistles. Care to buy us a non-alcoholic Zima? We'd really appreciate it! Just click the "Donate" tab at the top of the page.
