    Hey guys...we're all Gators. Let's all be happy the witch is dead. We'll have plenty to argue about after the next hire lol.

      2017 4th quarter against Vanderbilt. He gets pissed off because Malik Davis scored a TD late to seal the game. He actually feared a Kyle Shurmur led Vanderbilt team would score 2 TD's in 90 seconds. I laugh thinking about Urban or Spurrier getting mad at scoring TD's. That moment showed who Mac really is. A vagina who is scared to win.

          For me it was the lack of adjustment in year one after Grier was suspended. I know I wasn't the only one on here screaming at my keyboard that you can't ask Treon to run the same offense that Grier ran.

            I don't really have a moment. It's just been his unwillingness to change his entire time here. Whether it's trying to run the same offense with Grier and Treon, or refusing to make staff changes, or keeping his same wait and see approach to recruiting when it obviously wasn't working. His ego was so massive that it was impossible to him that he needed to change anything. It was always the players fault. Plus I don't think I've ever seen a staff coach less on the sideline than this one. Players would make a mistake and then go sit on the bench after getting pat on the helmet from their coach as they went by. Good riddance Mac. Thought we had nowhere to go but up from Muschamp, but here we are.

            This is a really good thread topic. I had several uh-oh moments that I'll list below:

            First, was the bowl game against Michigan. It was completely obvious that Mac treated this like extra practice time with an exhibition game, and of course that attitude rubbed off on the players. The poor preparation and lack of competitiveness was dumbfounding.

            Second, was his second recruiting class. No DT's again. Missed on higher ranked LB's and DB's. I knew this would set us back another year or two.

            Third and the final straw, was the UT debacle. He got outcoached by Butch Jones. Gave up a 4 TD lead, no second-half adjustments, and he looked completely lost on the sidelines... against Butch Jones. This was when I knew for sure that Foley screwed the pooch once again. There were several more uh-oh moments still to come, but none of them were surprising after this game.

                While I did not like the hire from the start, I think everyone deserves a chance. So I tried to be open minded about him.

                My moment was Treon Harris regressing. IF McElwain was to be the guy to get UF's offense back on track Treon Harris should not have been much much better against LSU in his first starting game after Grier's suspension than he was against Vandy and FAU later. This is also why I think there is a good chance that Grier too would have regressed under the past coaching staff.

                    Honestly, it wasn't a single moment as much as a process that eroded my confidence in him.

                    Kinda like a burger through the digestive tract.

                      Not surprised that you are wrong on this. You continued to accused me of pumping well after I had declared myself off the Mac train.

                        You merely empathize the obvious. I am not convinced that you understand the small words either.

                        I can't think of any particular Uh-Oh moments. All I can remember is 2½ solid years of Oh-#[email protected]&#@$ moments.

                            AR is my favorite angry pumper.

                            Even when he was "off the Buttertrain" he spent most of his time bashing the fans that knew Butters was shyt long ago.

                            So...... long after he says he fell of the Buttertrain he spent his time attacking us for being unreasonable and running Butters off... because he wasn't on the Buttertrain.

                              So.... what you are trying to say is:
                              1) I am a liar.
                              2) I have poor reading comprehension
                              3) I cant even understand small words.
                              4) I only understand and share the feelings of others.

                              This is causing me much self reflection today. Anything else you can share about me?
