re: Pat Dooley Podcast: “Lets ride it out. Firing everyone isn’t always the answer.” - bgator85
[quote]Whos the backup plan? Thats the question[/quote] I don’t know, I think part of the reason it hasn’t been done is that half the offensive staff is new. I could see him giving it to Seider in the interim. ...

re: Pat Dooley Podcast: “Lets ride it out. Firing everyone isn’t always the answer.” - bgator85
[quote]then Nuss will be fired[/quote] Nuss will be relieved of playcalling duties no later than the end of the season. It was supposed to happen last year with him landing another job but unfortunately he wasn't hired anywhere. Mac understands the pressure that is on him right now, there's going...

re: Watching Replay on SECN (on now) - bgator85
[quote]No it's because nord fricking sucks.[/quote] Outside of his friendship with the HC, it is hard to find a reason why this guy is still employed at UF. He's been a weakness from the start and nothing has been done. ...

Mac sure has shot up this list, quickly finds himself at #22. Think he was somewhere around 50 post-LSU. ...

re: Does anyone believe in Mac? - bgator85
[quote]There is a near zero percent chance this is the case... He's a legend at Nebraska, they're desperate... UF is easily the better job, but circumstances likely drop it down.[/quote] I think he ends up there (although the new AD could throw a wrench into things), just curious how some would f...

re: Does anyone believe in Mac? - bgator85
[quote]He will be our HC in 2018[/quote] I'm curious, how absolute would your commitment to McElwain be? Let's say we reached out to Scott Frost and found out he's interested over Nebraska, would you consider the move or go all in on Mac? ...

[quote]It wouldn't be a complete shock if McElwain searches for an escape route of his own.[/quote] We could only be so lucky. Maybe that Oregon State job will call him home to the Northwest...

re: Post Your Top 4 Teams In Sec Basketball - bgator85
Mike White is going to have this team very well positioned to make a deep run in the tournament again. When the SEC season rolls around and Egbunu comes back from injury, this is going to be a very deep team with experience all over the floor. ...

re: Another article worth reading - uf playmakers and # of touches - bgator85
The article is spot on. We are 3 years in and the staff can't figure out how to use talent. Indefensible and unacceptable. ...

re: Does anyone believe in Mac? - bgator85
[quote]What coordinator worth a damn is going to take the risk of moving his family for a coach that only has 1 year to turn it around? [/quote] I agree, it's a problem. Believe his former OC from Colorado State is at Oregon State right now, may be the best he can get under the circumstances. ...

re: Does anyone believe in Mac? - bgator85
[quote]the athletic department needs to rise above this and do it right for the long term good of the program.[/quote] I'll think he'll get the chance to change coordinators and it around next year. Not much doubt in my mind. turn But it is a risk either way. We gave Muschamp one year too man...

re: This loss was on Feleipe - bgator85
[quote]McElwain had one quarterback who ran his system well -- Grier, and he looked like a game manager behind one of the worst lines we've had in years. [/quote] Grier has been the best QB under Mac, and it took him 2 games to decide to make him the permanent starter over Treon Harris. Based...

re: This loss was on Feleipe - bgator85
[quote]There are guys who are not meant to be quarterbacks. Franks is one of them. They yanked Franks several times this season, because he is just simply not progressing. Guys absolutely fail at quarterback all the time. [/quote] I think it's crazy that after 6 games you are able to declare tha...

re: This loss was on Feleipe - bgator85
[quote]I understand there will be growing pains, but I want growing pains with progress. I don't see that right now. It falls on the coaches during the week not developing and preparing them, but it falls on the players in the game when we have open guys and they don't execute.[/quote] Honestly, ...

re: FIRE JIM MCELWAIN - bgator85
[quote]You come into this game, and Franks underperformed against LSU. Bad playcalling, too. LSU was lost by playcalling almost exclusively. Franks doesn't help, but they had no ''alternative'' or ''Franks package''. This week they did that for the most part. They kept Franks in manageable situat...

[quote]Do you think Zaire couldn't do what he did, or that he would do it worse? If all we're holding onto him is for his legwork, he's not doing it better than Zaire.[/quote] Mac must not think he can do any better, he's been a no show for 5 weeks and didn't put him in today. It is Mac and ...

[quote]Ill take Mike Leach and a three star Qb over Mac and any Qb in high school at this point[/quote] That’s the thing, your offense shouldn’t need an all-star to be effective. Corral should be the difference in a championship run, not the reason we field a decent offense. ...

re: FIRE JIM MCELWAIN - bgator85
[quote]put up almost 400 yards of offense (would have, I think, if we negate those retarded sacks) and had 2 less first downs than Alabama. [/quote] You keep going after Franks in every post, and yet you have no problem using his 79 yard run that was the reason for 1 of the 2 TDs to bolster the o...

[quote]Good God people Mac is not going anywhere this year even if he doesn't win another game. [/quote] If this team falls apart and doesn't win another game, all bets are off the table. Stricklin has a massive facilities plan underway far more expensive than what Foley had drawn up, he can ...
