    @DK_Thompson: The #Gators +12 turnover margin was their best since 2012.

        For all you B+ 'ers let me say that this team is not the same team that took the field the opening game. The team evolved in Mullen's hands and the loss to UK and Mizzou was the transition in progress. This guy is for real. I can't wait to play all three teams we lost to this year again. I'll bet he can't either.

          That's huge. I remember a question asked in a thread here last year to the effect of what offense ranking posters would be satisfied with after Dan's first year. I don't remember anyone answering with a ranking higher than the mid-40's.

            It looks to me that Florida will be ranked 6 or 7 at season's end, after the Dwags submitted to the Longhorns. Not too shabby!

              Solid B...you can’t get an A with the losses at home and not getting to the SEC title game is a big factor

                    First year grade depends on NSD, right now holding a B+, could be an A- or A depending on NSD.

                      I'd say B+, it would have been an A had they not crapped the bed against Kentucky and Missouri and fallen behind by so many points to Vandy and SCar. We better improve on defense over the spring and summer.

                        Strange but I relate to this post as a fan because from 2011 until about the 4th game of this season I always felt we were most likely going to lose against anyone with a heartbeat...just a non enjoyable, queasy feeling surrounded me anytime I watched us play, even in 2012...

                        Maybe it was lower expectations going into this year (especially after the UK loss) that made me appreciate the rest of the season so much. But there was also other signs that began to show themselves slowly at first. In game adjustments, different offensive wrinkles for EACH new game, and mostly a calmness about the players the way they handled their business on the field. You could see they believed in what they were asked to do. Rarely did guys look confused or lost.....ok, maybe a few times on defense but they seemed to get that fixed by the end of the year.

                        Even when being down more than 1 or 2 scores the team never looked panicked or ready to throw in the towel with the exception of Mizzou maybe but that was 1 game instead of half the schedule. To be honest this was the first time in a long while I expected us to win instead of folding up the tent when we were in a tight game or pissing away a lead late in the game while our coaches just looked on helplessly(Butters) or yelled at players for making the same mistakes over and over(Muschamp).

                        Make no mistakes we still have talent issues and depth on the defensive side of the ball but this team was fun to watch and hopefully will be so for the next few years.

                          Mizzou was a gaffe, but KY-Jelly was a legit loss. They held that up with their remaining regular season performanc
                          Both UF and UGA were MUCH different teams then vs now. We still owned UGA for both of those coaches. The playing field has been made considerably more even from recruiting to coaching. The tables have since clearly turned against CDM. Apples vs Oranges.

                                But most of the recruiting for this class has taken place during the first year. If were were currently around 10 in recruiting and not 17, I would have voted an A. If we were in the top 5, I would have voted an A+.

                                        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.
