Just curious who actually wants Mullen gone? Step up pls
Also who would we get better if he'd be fired someone who went from 4 wins to be ranked 8th following yr. 6th the next and omg what has happened 13th yet we beat Georgia. Something everyone wanted. Took Bama to the brink


I am very curious why. Idc about anything he said I care about winning and Mullen with Emory but I think more so Richardson

He found the perfect QB be a gd tragedy to push him out before the 6'4 230lb 4.64 40 QB gets to the field with a arm slings it 70 yards

I mean we fired losers who made running look like idk the hardest shite in the world or maybe coaching up a QB

I think he's a good maybe even great coach.

I also think he's his own worst enemy. There are certain glaring problems that he needs to get over:

Grantham was a big red flag, the biggest.

Most importantly? Realize that press conferences are part of the game. Sure, he hates them, and it's obvious. Hire some dude to write your shite for you, you make millions, just avoid stuff that could be embarrassing, follow the script, and focus on football.

He has too many resources to be this flustered.

Unless Nick Saban or Dabo Sweeney publicly announce that they are coming to UF, I am OK with keeping Mullen. Having said that, he does do and say some stupid shite.

His recruiting is mediocre, his defense is in disarray and he ain’t ever beating saban. The loss to lsu last year was embarrassing.

Frankly I’m over him. Don’t care if he stays or goes. The program is what it is at this point.

I disagree Slayer, recruiting has been good and coupled with the waiver wire we are ok there.

College football isa a strange sport and after being a die hard Gator fan for 52 years....I've seen it all.No one wants to lose a game and every freaking time we do lose a game the lynch mob comes out in force...and that goes for almost every SEC school not named Vandy.

We could surprise folks this year, but its better to not have high expectations and just enjoy the season.

re: Just curious who actually wants Mullen gone? Step up pls
I personally think recruiting is the least of his worries.

Put up 38 points on Georgia by halftime and coasted the rest of the game, the only team that came close to beating Alabama last year. He clearly has talent where it needs to be.

His attitude is what cost us. There were games he didn't take seriously (LSU, Oklahoma and even A&M one might argue), and his off the field antics cost us a lot of embarrassing PR moments.

However, there is quite a large asterisk for recruiting: If the defense is as bad as it was last year, we may be in for another coaching change and our recruiting really is bad.

I think our offense will surprise people by how effective it is, but there's no way we can have another "worst defense in 60 years" type of year again.

8th 6th 13th

Who would wanna come here? A decade where football was hard literally painful to watch.

1 year out of 3the defense isnt top 15 or so. Lol if it's bad again I'm extremely confident your Grantham concerns are gone.

So many coaches would look at UF like huh they almost won the sec

I mean really I dont see how it wouldn't be a huge mistake

I just feel like how tf u wanna fire a guy who has coached up Emory for all these yrs. Ant Richardson kid is so perfect for Mullen system

Recruiting hell he actually recruits balanced classes

Also kills it in the portal. Emory do RPOs and options with Bowman and Wright I need that

I'll say it I think the D improves A LOT

I think Emory finally shows us what we been eager to see a QB with wheels

Also will help recruiting imo black gator fans recruits etc will like finally seeing a black QB with dreads swagger. 40 ppg last year. I'm excited to see the D next yr. Just me

Leak and Franks just aren't seen the same


Are yall worried if the D is bad again next yr Grantham still stays. I dont see any possible way

First 2 years top 15 next 2 garbage Mullen isnt dumb and good DCs are out there for sure

You can see a lot of awesome things...

But also a lot of worrisome things. He has to fix the latter soon. We can not continue to struggle landing key recruits, hold on to poor coaches, and having embarrassing press conferences.

I really want to believe he can do it here. He has a lot of positives..but he has to change certain things to get there. Hopefully he does. I certainly do not want him fired currently.

I've been very up on Mullen. Does not change the fact that we still are not there, and have to improve to get there. He is in year four. How long do you get to make the playoffs and seriously contend before you want to see improvements?

Also UF is not happy. Which is why his contract is not extended.

Because I believe the program is better than where we stand currently. The administration does as well, or we would have given him a contract extension.

You must’ve forgot where the program was before Dan got here. Just out of curiosity though, who would you want instead of Dan?

Winning the East and still not getting to the big dance...?

Mullen's got a lot to do this season, we can't be like Georgia fans who constantly make excuses for our guy.

Not making excuses but there is a big difference between the program now and the one under Muschamp and Mcelwain. I’ve been critical of Mullen in certain areas (Not firing Grantham and his lack of recruiting) but I know he’s a hell of a developer and X’s and O’s coach. If he can pick it up in the recruiting department and make the tough CEO decisions and fire his dead weight buddies (Hevesey, Knox, Grantham) then I truly believe he can win a championship. Trust me though, I’ll let y’all know when/if I think it’s time to fire Mullen (Check my posts about Mike White and Todd Grantham). I’m willing to give Mullen until 2022 before I make my final decision on him. He’s earned at least 5 years imo. On top of all that, there’s really no better realistic options out there at the moment. If y’all got some realistic options I’d love to hear them but please don’t say Cristobol or Napier.

It could be said that you forgot where the program was before Mcelwain and Muschamp arrived. Our senior class in 09 was 48-7. Their worst season was 9-4 and I get a lot of flack on here for being upset with our 2020 campaign ending with an 8-4 record.

That was 12 years ago. Mullen had to get the terrible stench off the program that Muschamp and especially Mcelwain left. It’s not like Mcelwain left Mullen with a loaded roster either. Mullen inherited the least talented roster in...I don’t even know how long. I am like you and I’d assume most Gator fans, in that, my expectations are extremely high. With any new Gator coach, I expect a championship by year 5 or 6. If the coach can’t get it done by then, they are starting to reach Mark Richt territory and it would be time to cut bait. Mullen just finished year 3, I’m willing to give him a few more years before I’m ready to fire him. I’m still waiting for you to tell me who you’d rather have.

I don’t think you’re wrong. I am barking at the moon regarding Mullen bc I truly believe he isn’t going to get it done. Is he a terrible coach? Absolutely not. Is he an elite play-caller? Absolutely. Is he an elite head coach? Absolutely not.

Time opens up many portals in this profession. 2 years ago Sarkisian’s name was dirt and he is now the head coach at a top 5 program. I personally would go with Matt Campbell atm but It’s not a hill I’m willing to die on that he is the end-all be-all of head coaches. I just firmly believe Mullen isn’t the answer.

Matt Campbell is not out-recruiting Nick Saban, Kirby Smart, Ed O, or Jimbo Fisher.

Hard pass.

Unless we starting throwing giant bags of cash at recruits or suddenly win like ten National Championships we can't expect to win those recruiting battles.

Alabama I get, Georgia had the most talented team in the country and couldn't even win their division.

If you think Kirby got such a sweet mouth, or he's saying something other guys aren't, you're just wrong. In the end, unless we want to start moving the bags and bidding for guys, we won't win those battles.

There is no way a 5-star dual threat chooses Georgia over Florida, and there's no way Mullen's record with Quarterbacks can be outshone in that regard. It's not just simply a recruiting error or what have you.

However, if we don't throw bags at recruits, Mullen is the guy. He can clearly develop the frick out of players, especially skill positions on offense.
