    Maybe we win...but aftet the sugar bowl the yesr b4....didnt seem too promising.
    (Miami dominated both sides of LOS...)[/quote]

    So you don't think there is any difference in going through an off-season knowing who your quarterback is and their strengths and weaknesses. Having the schemes and playcalling from the beginning more suited along with knowledge of the opponent. You call the difference in a game anyone watching both teams knows the difference was much more than a game.

    It's also hypothetical that Miami automatically wins. I agree they had the most NFL ready talent on a single team of any time in the last 20 years. But their coaching had also fallen off from 00 team.

    But you are ok, about him getting more upset about fumbles than player safety. Noted.

    Only when they fit your argument.

    In an era where earning a NC was easier due to the BCS.

    You're starting to make up your own arguments to fit your narrative....

    I'm going to assume you don't remember much before Foley and what was built before he got to the AD position. Because that is how it sounds.

    Does Foley deserve some credit, no one is saying he doesn't. Making him all world at AD because he came in at the right time after the infrastructure was built, then allowed it to crumble because he didn't see the changing of the times. Come one now.

    I notice you like to stick to one set of facts, and when they are challenged, either abandon or move the goalposts. I responded to your argument on Spurrier, when that went up in flames you moved the goalposts to include Meyer. You moved the goalposts, because you need to be right even if it means changing the argument. This argument style seems like the Byrdman, when the facts don't line up with the discussion change the discussion.

    First learn English, and I'm the last person that needs to be telling someone this. But fck dude learn how to type.

      1. FTSOA = For the sake of argument.

      Not conceding.

      2. What is my 'narrative'?

      Hint: it aint the straw man your so boldly slaying.

      3. Well aware of UFs football history--i point to the NCs, bc ppl. Judge him on MacElchump's rec, and take fir grsnted Meyers NCs as if Zooks recruiting wasnt necessary for at the very lesdt, 06, and on top of everything else, want to pretend that Meyer hsppened in a void in JFs tenure...

      4. UF is in s great place fiscally, bc of this *disaster* of a AD...

      Later.

      I don't think I've ever seen such a strenuous (but really lame) attempt to rehabilitate Foley's image. One has to be related or have worked for him to conjure up such contortions (e.g., Spurrier stayed because of Foley).

      As a CEO (of athletics) he was hiring for the most important position in the most visible department in his domain. And he hires Zook, Muschamp, and McElwain. How? Why? :headslap:That's 3 lapses of judgment and a definite stain on his legacy. The hiring of BD does not wash it away.

      PS: To be most generous, Urban Meyer's hire was a Machen-Foley joint venture...and a no-brainer.

            5-1 was not expected. That being said, beating Kentucky was expected.

              No just a person who changing the person who they are discussing to fit their argument. So yes your narrative.

              Again, moving the goalpost from the initial discussion.

              So your assumption without Foley, Football would not have made millions of dollars in Net profit? Even without the profit that Basketball currently makes we are still in the black (per the UAA financial reporting) without it. Also prove where I said he was a disaster... weight of those goal posts have to be getting heavy on you.

              Fooley is a steaming pile of shyt of an AD and as a person.

              All you GOAT people got to choke down that reality when your GOAT was laughed at by the conferences. No one wanted that asshat, not even Sunbelt or CUSA.

                Your account of the "talks" between SOS and Foley do not square with Spurrier's comments that were made to the press, and are still available on line. He was not offered the job. Period. For a new guy on this board, your history of distorting history is impressive - in a very negative way. Incidentally, I'm having more trouble trying to figure out what you're trying to say, due to the many misspellings and tortured syntax, than your "thoughts" are actually worth.

                Believe what you like. Foley wrecked the FB program with his slum lord mentality, micro-managing and a catastrophic series of bad hires. You can spin it however you wish. You can deny facts and "interpret" those you choose to believe to any desired effect. You can't however alter the fact that during his tenure, Foley committed multiple blunders that resulted in the near collapse of the program. Bye.

                    I can’t believe I’m brought to arguing in favor of Mr. 4800 yards, but this response to Insti is BS. With his own annoying style, Insti did call it. Some here thought he was crazy (or that the premise of 10 wins or we hired a bum was a setup). But, after all the crap he took in those preseason threads, did you really expect him to not come into this exact thread, asking this question, and gloat?

                    And so he did, rightfully.

                      ...and your free to champion your own bull**** narrative as youve proven so detetmined. (And btw, the football program was never in any threat of collapse, at least not since getting the NCAA off our ass).

                      Oh, and since you appear to have missed it...SOS, Billy D, and Urbs...among many many others...do not appear to share your ignorantly entrenched opinion:

Yall haters/bashers can't seem to keep any kind of perspective. Fwiw).

                      Foley's a f ing idiot. A chimp good do his job and have the same success at UF. Well maybe better success. I think a chimp would have enough brains to upgrade facilities. And not f up every football coaching hire he initiated.
