    Dude just stop. The more you comment the more you prove my point. Those guys are gonna go down as all time greats. Are you insinuating that only an all time great deserves to coach here?

    A class with 3 skill position players (1 who may not be available at a position of need in 2020) and no RB will always be a concern.

        We say it, bc it's the case. Weird how we say things that are happening right in front of our eyes. Compare that to you saying that lsu doesn't have elite talent. Who's just making shlt up out of emotion?
        Do what fans do and discuss it. In this case, be annoyed by it until he's fired. Annoying you is just a bonus.
        In science, expert opinion is not the top of the food chain; good research is. That's why somebody with less training can argue with a Harvard scientist and be right. Same reason why anyone with any intelligence can watch our ST and recruiting and say that knox sucks. If mullen says knox is good, is he right just bc he gets paid more to say it? Of course not.
        This is a strawman, bc you know everything isn't to the extreme (maybe with Law when he's boozing). I don't know enough about facilities so I've never commented specific thoughts/ideas. You can look, but you won't find one. I also don't think we should fire every coach. I think we should actually shoot to never have too much coaching turnover so I'd only be looking at 2 or 3. I think that, not bc I'm an expert in firing coaches, but bc it's what I've seen elite caches do. Safety won't be a huge priority in 2021 so you fire English. Knox needs to go, bc ST is a huge part of football and ours isn't good enough. Recruiting RBs is secondary to me in his case. Keeping or getting rid of Billy G would be based on how we think his relationships are with 2021 kids and if mullen had an idea for a replacement. Obviously, we shlt the bed in wr recruiting this class so 2021 will once again be a huge need.

          Now you're deflecting. Did you understand the premise? You just rather go off on a tangent about LSU and if their recruiting has been elite. We're #7. What's elite in your opinion? Top 5?

          We're not getting classes in the teens and twenties. To act like the coach is making some monumental mistake is disingenuous. We can win a championship with top 10 talent if you catch lightning in a bottle, like most other teams. I'm not setting Bama and Clemson as the measuring stick for our program. Winning is cyclical. They won't be on top forever.

            Changing your argument. The path is more defined which creates opportunity. If UF is a top 5 program which most people believe it should be due to location and resources, we should be in the conversation annually. You are making excuses to fit an argument. You use Spurrier in your argument because he is an alltime great but only had one title. So either you have to agree that the path is easier to the definition of path. That is the part you are being factually dishonest about when bringing up SOS.

              Science is theoretical. Lots of people can accumulate knowledge and make opinions. The actual application of that knowledge is why coaches get paid big bucks. I'm sure you're an expert in football. That's not saying much. There's a finite amount of knowledge to be pulled from football. Doesn't take a genius to understand it. But I bet if I put you in front of 85 players and gave you a whistle you'd crap your pants. It's easy to say how things should be going from a distance. But you don't really know jack sh!t.

              Changing my argument? Maybe you should re-read our chat and get back to me.

                  You bring up SOS which was an different era so you are being intellectually dishonest in your argument about the current landscape of College Football.

                          I'm guessing we find out due to need. If we get AW, he'd be the 8th DB and the one not fit for the scheme.

                          Normally, a guy with that speed ranked as a CB is bc he doesn't have the hands, but there's a chance Lakeland is so stacked that he just didn't play a ton, bc guys like Smith were there.

                                  Yeah, stop saying it, its BS. Spurdog won a bunch of championships. And if Dan had won one this year, he'd be taking a lot less heat over a 5th to 6th place in the SEC crootin class. Win the SEC (like spurdog did numerous times) and everything else takes care of itself. This isn't hard.
