Spurrier is one of a kind...and I had the pleasure as a teen of watching him as a UF QB in the 1964-66 era. You have to understand how average UF was back then before he arrived.
Spurrier brought UF back in the fourth qt in the last few minutes as a player many times. He had the knack....born in...

I will be disappointed in 9 wins honestly unless there are reasons beyond coaches control. 10 wins or better is what I expect. 8 wins (w/o the reasons that coaches cant control) and I will hold the door open for Mr Muschamp to leave.

Its not just offensively Mizz lost some help....they lost defensive help. A subpar season is awaiting you...the SEC east crown will be a distant memory soon enough....

Fasten your seatbelts oh yee of little faith. You are about to see why Jeremy stuck by Boom. Anything less than 10 Ws will be a disappointment to me in all seriousness.
The offense will be much improved and so will our WRs. Driskel has the experience now to take UF to a higher level. He is going ...

However, don't forget 2012 Florida. I don't see the powers of the East or West being as strong as their 2012 incarnations. If Florida could get to their 2012 level or better, then they could win the SEC without a doubt. Recall that 2012 Florida was lead by Driskel and coach...
