    The Noles are a dumpster fire. The players have quit. The fans are jumping off the ship in droves. I cannot say this with more emphasis:

    We HAVE to win this football game.

    FSU has had things go their way for many years now, and have taken full advantage with recruiting. This is our opportunity to turn the tables and humiliate them. This is the opportunity to take the damn state back and show recruits that choosing FSU is a ticket for embarrassment. Willie Taggart could be the best thing that ever happened to Florida football IF we take full advantage of it.

    However, this game concerns me. It's almost certainly going to be viewed as their championship game. If FSU can win next week (which frankly is doubtful against Boston College), they will need to win to continue their coveted bowl streak. I have my doubts Taggart could actually motivate anyone, but I've seen the Noles get scores of lucky bounces over the last 3 decades and nothing would surprise me.

    PLEASE Gators put those slimebags away. A season with a win over UT, LSU, and FSU would be a great opening year for Mullen.

    Discuss.

      I agree and I think Mullen and the team agree. I just worry about these kinds of games that appear as a "should win" kinda game after the Mizzu game I am kinda gun shy. I know they are a dumpster fire but they actually have the talent to win the game if they could ever put it together.

        They'll get stomped by BC next week and be in full on quit mode by the time we get there. It won't be a close game.

          Maybe the Daz will send DM a quality scouting report.

          I have some advice for Mullen on this game plan....

          1. Run game heavy Scarlett.
          2. Run game heavy Perrine.
          3. Run game heavy Pierce.
          4. Run the Giraffe only when necessary.
          5. Pass when appropriate.
          6. Toney needs 15 touches.

          This should be a hard nosed, run it down their throat game. Semis will have a bit of fight in them, so we need to put it on them hard. If done so, they should lay down early.

            Bingo. Five pass attempts MAX.

              In all actuality, this should be the game plan for next week as well.

              A must win against a 4-6 team. I must be living in an alternative universe.

              Actually, I'm just kidding. We do have to win for a variety of reasons, beginning with F-S-U. I hate them more than Georgia.

                I agree that we need to beat FSU, but it probably won't be that massive turn that you might think. Miami is also having problems, but the various smaller schools are having success to somewhat offset the benefits to us. In addition some players love both FSU or Miami, they are generally not coming to UF.

                Don't forget the opportunity to get younger players experience next week and I want a more balanced offense to recruit the talent that we will need in the future. Just running won't do that very well in my opinion.

                Now against FSU we need to take what is there to win.

                No turnovers particularly in the 1st half. Their only chance would be to get some confidence off of a couple cheap scores just like last year...as bad as we were we should have won that game.
                If we are tied or ahead in the 3rd quarter our oline should put us across the finish line. As much as I would like to win with style points we just need to win.....badly!!!

                  This was always gonna be the most important game for this season. This could be a "change the direction of the program" type of win. As stated above, Mullen has to reclaim this state, before we can have a chance to compete for bigger things. This has mostly been a streaky series over time, it time for us to go on a nice looooong win streak.

                    Yeah, there has always been that thug element that would never come to UF.

                    And they know they dont get that football player get out of jail free card in Gainesville.

                      I beg to differ about winning. We don't have to just win, but crush them on Ron Zook field. I mean just flat run over their sorry asses. I'm tired of losing to the clowns.

                              They will lose to BC, so this will be their bowl game. Also because it is against their in-state rival, they will get up for the game, need to stop this schitty defensive 1st quarter play!! put them behind early so the quit and loser attitude comes out. No turnovers to give them momentum,

                              I don't give a schit that they have recruited better than us lately, that program is imploding, will have a losing record, this staff needs to win the game, no excuses.

                                We need to throat punch them...early and often then make them drink bleach.

                                  Or pass against our safeties.

                                  Or TEs.

                                  Their OL sucks. We need to blitz and blitz often. Our LBs are useless in pass coverage anyway.
