    I’ve thought Grantham was one of the best DCs in college. I officially retract this opinion. I’ve heard too much from folks who know and seem too many duds .

    I think we will do well against Most teams but an exciting, high powered or very talented O we will struggle. I’m afraid that he will keep us from a NC. He’s “too good”
    To fire and too bad to win the elite games. Sigh.....I wish this board hadn’t helped open my eyes, ignorance is sometimes bliss

          You know what he's what we got for now so I hope he gets it turned around.

            That describes Mullen too.

              FWIW, I loved when he was at UGLY.

              They prolly love him now too.

                How many 3rd and Granthams did it take to convince you? He’s good for at least 2 a game.

                  Maybe. I think Mullen is better than Grantham. Frankly I don’t think Dabo is any better he just got some great QBs and better recruits. I think Dan “can” be elite, let’s face it, he was the best hire available in hindsight and I was ALL aboard the Chip Kelly and Scott Frost train. And he’s better than both by a mile

                    Ok. News flash. Better recruits and great QB's is 90+% of the job.

                      I think with the QBs we have in the room and his coaching we may well be there with QB. Recruiting isn’t far off especially with transfers. Glaring upgrade needed at OL recruiting but if we keep getting 5 star RB transfers, every other area of the team is recruited at a level to compete I think. We need patience, and probably 1-2 recruiting upgrades. We are right in the thick of the 4-8 range overall I think from a football perspective and trending up, hard to complain about that

                        It is funny that people think the only people "available" are the unemployed coaches or coaches that moved that year.

                        If Folley hadnt pulled a Hindenburg on our program, every coach (almost) would be available. We used to hire champions.

                          Sure wish I shared your optimism. High 3 and low 4 star guys don't make a championship team and I have no idea what we have in the QB room outside of Trask. Don't have anyone that even sniffed a 5th star.

                            Youre aware we signed one ILB in four years and two safeties, right?

                            We have one more ILB coming this year.... maybe.

                              Emory will be good and the freak is Ant Richardson have you seen his size and speed? 230 lbs and a legit 4.5. And smart and can throw. Sounds like baby Cam to me

                                Couldn't agree more. This argument is laughable.

                                  Here is the thing, you build your team up the middle. Offense and defense.

                                  There is a reason all those one trick pony Rush Ends and CBs are leftovers.

                                    Emory has been here 3 years and threw a pick on his first play of the season. Agree that AR has all the measurables, but we have no idea if he's the next Cam or the next Driskel.

                                      I like what I saw out of the offense and the new playboom, nit Im a bit afraid that it is fools gold like Butters vs Ole Miss (and we later learn that Cokeboy was freelancing).

                                        Me too. Sadly, the fact that Dan gave EJ 2 of the first 3 series of the game makes me think its closer to fools gold. I'd suggest enjoying the ride over the next two - three months.

                                            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.
