    Look at UF's September schedule this year:

    1 Sept: Charleston So.
    8 Sept: UK
    15 Sept: Co. State
    22 Sept: at UTn
    29 Sept: at Miss State

    So UF almost half, 5/12th, of UF season will be over in September. Not only might we know a lot about Mullen's tenure at UF when September goes into October, the two road games in late September may really determine the season.

    Everyone will be worried if UF loses any of the first 3 games. Many people have UF losing one or both of the late September road games. If UF comes out of September 4-1, I think many people will be optimistic. If UF comes out of September 3-2, I think people will be worried. If UF comes out of September any worse than 3-2, I think the fan base will already begin to turn. That two game road trip is crucially important for this team and for Mullen's start at UF.

    Toss in a home game against LSU the first week of and the season is half gone by 7 October. If UF is anything worse than 4-2 at that point, it will be ugly around here.

        That is what I have repeatedly said and been much criticized for. I have been pointedly told not with this roster and some do not like it when I ask where are the problems other than QB with this roster.

            Those 5 teams are even hotter garbage than we are.

              You know, I was about to say, "Yeah, me too." Then I played back some of Franks' plays in my head and I came out with, "Ehhhhh....maybe not."

              As always, I'll begin the season with my normal optimism. In recent years that has usually lasted about half way into the second quarter of the first game.

                Right I have argued that any decent coach will win 10 games against this schedule and if Mullen does that does not prove he is up to this job.

                  We can split the road trip. We will have more trouble with Colorado State than UK, trap game between two conference games.

                  All depends who starts at QB. If it is Franks, all bets are off. The league has a year of film on him and know he has little between the ears.

                  Franks won't take a single snap in the first 5 games.

                    No one will be more disappointed than you when we win. You and law can openly root against UF.

                      From the biggest troll on here. :lol:

                      I’d love for us to go 15-0 and win the whole damn thing, but I know what Mullen was handed and realize what an uphill climb he has ahead of him. If he manages 8 wins, he’s done a helluva job his first year IMO.

                          If I weren't so lazy, I'd go back a year and find the posts of you and others saying the same thing about LDR and worshipping the obviously not ready yet Feleipe Franks.

                          Universidad Técnica Nacional according to google.

                          Didn't even know they had a football team.

                            I really like us vs Charleston Southern. May be close though.

                            No, we win all 5 games against those garbage teams even with Franks. Even with mediocre recruiting, UF still has more talent and will have a team that's actually coached this year.

                              Just don't bother to watch the games. You're going to be (even more) insufferable.

                                Is there an echo developing on here besides the pumpers vs dumpers debates and Jboss' signature saying? Lol
