    Hard to get SEC championships when Saban exists in your division the entirety of your head coaching career. He's had relative success at Miss St ... some huge wins during his tenure. ***QBs have gotten better under his tutelage.*** The obvious connection to Gainesville. Plus he was basically their third choice ... for some reason.

    There's more to it but that's it in a nutshell.

    Thanks. I was just not sure. Normally within a conference you'd rather pry a coach away with success already.

    It'll be interesting to see how that works out.

    I'm surprised there has been a meh reception to Dan Mullen. Nobody wins consistently at Mississippi State and he did.

    I think *most* Gator fans are happy with the hire. There will always be a subset that aren't happy no matter what.

    They didn't pay enough attention to Corral and he flipped to Ole Miss. This one might come back to haunt them. First measuring stick is out there. Mullen really wants that option QB.

    They've lost more recruits since the Mullen hire then after the Mac firing. That's not great. Need to rebound and get this first class back on track. Surtain Jr would be nice ...

    Yeah I was scrolling through Twitter when he posted it. Better hope Mullen can get Justin Fields to flip or we could run out of options quickly.

    Flipping Jones was a good start to saving the class. It's especially nice to steal one from Meyer. I'm still pissed at him about Raekwon.

    I thought it was pretty funny how all the gator sites were acting like flipping that kicker was banner news to distract from the exodus of commits. That'll fool 'em ...

    Yeah Jones flipping is a huge sigh of relief. We really need a dual-threat guy to run DM's offense and with Fields being rock solid in his commitment to UGA, we really had to land him. I'm hoping this helps woo Copeland back to us too.

    Also, Trevon Grimes transferring in from OSU makes this a double-whammy for Urb. Jake Allen was ecstatic on Twitter to have his old teammate from Aquinas back in Florida. He'll try to get a family hardship waiver from the NCAA so he can play right away.

    Van Jefferson transferring in from Ole Miss could be a nice pickup too. His numbers at Ole Miss were OK, but we really need all the firepower we can get. If the credit card guys come back, we might actually fill out a complete roster of scholarship players. Callaway is already gone, and Scarlett may as well go too, IMO.

    So four of the credit card guys are staying. Jordan Scarlett, Rick Wells, James Houston and Ventrell Miller have all rejoined the team. Scarlett is the big one. That will be a huge boost to our backfield.

    Mullen was a decent hire...my brother goes to UF, and he likes the hire...lots of people wanted Chip Kelly, but I think Mullen is the better guy in the long run for you guys.

    The LBs are pretty big too considering how awful they looked last season. Sharp had his moments but still struggled. It was unequivocally the worst LB play I've seen in 20 years of watching the gators. Just pitiful.

    Kelly belongs out on the left coast where he can run gimmick offenses, use his old recruiting connects, and not worry so much about defense. The SEC would've chewed him up and spit him out.

    Mullen was the guy. Dude has to develop a QB and stat. We're almost at the no tolerance for garbage QB play threshold. Jones needs to deliver.

    SharkLover was never going to get you where you wanted to be...Mullen won at MSU...if he can be successful there, he’ll be more than ok at Hogtown.

    Sharp? Reese, dummy. Gonna hard to make that mistake this season when there's 2 of them. Should be interesting.

    Inconsistency. Different players keep taking turns being ‘the guy’ at different points in the season. Dangerously streaky.

    It’s funny though because it still looks like a Billy Donovan team. Full court press, tough D, and inexplicably falling apart in the 4th with a 15 point lead. It’s like he never left.
