Remember Gator Fans
Georgia was playing for a national title ten months ago.

The fact that Dan was able to be competitive in spite of the turnovers is reason to be very optimistic.

Kirby isn’t all that smart.

Kirby is not as good as everyone says.

Today proved that.

He is a good recruiter. We do need more depth and better talent.

We won the Arms Race. What do you guys think it would look like if we swapped coaches with Georgia.

Does Kirby even keep it within 30? I don't think so. We'll get the depth, thank God Florida State and Miami have looked like absolute dog shite while we just get better and better.

We are going to take out a lot of anger on Florida State, though.

Win out, smash FSU, and hopefully get a NY6 bowl matchup with UCF to finally shut those idiots up.

No doubt.

Mizzou worries me a little next week if CJ can't play, but we really should win out and finish 10-2.

Franks in the big games (UK, LSU, MSST and UGA) is: 64/117 (54%)
TDs: 4
INTs: 4
Fumbles: 4

4 Touchdowns, 8 turnovers, 54% completion rate. 179 yards on average per game. There's no way any person can look at those statistics and say that the person who has them is a good Quarterback. I think we're going to change it up for several factors but mostly because I don't think he has the attitude.

Having Trask/Jones take over for the next two home games to get them accustomed to the game.

Or, I guess, ride out Franks and sacrifice him to the football Gods and just hope for a reset next year.

Difference between Jim McElwain and Dan Mullen:

McElwain- "There's a lot of broken hearts in that locker room right now."

Mullen: "There's a lot of guys in that locker room right now who are excited to get back on the practice field Monday and get better."

re: Remember Gator Fans
We were missing three of our four starting dbs and have no depth. That’s where recruiting plays a role. We need less Shannon specials and more four star back ups

re: Remember Gator Fans
Well next year, hopefully Hendo and Wilson are healthy, Trey Dean is getting a lot of gametime but we're probably going to have to switch to a natural 3 - 4 and leave the nickel out. Put Gardner Johnson on edge, maybe move McWilliams inside and see if he can jam/take away the short routes?

I think Steele/Elam (I'm confident we will land one or two of them) will immediately help next year.

I think we'll be fine, but it's gonna suck this year.

re: Remember Gator Fans
I think even Franks would look good against UGA if they had 3/4 of starters missing in the secondary.

Give it up Straws...Franks is our QB this year. You and Finchy can hug each other.

We lost as soon as Henderson went down and Stewart was suspended for breaking team rules....just check boxscore and Stewart's name isn't on tackles list at all.

re: Remember Gator Fans
So basically no Stewart, Henderson, or Marco in the secondary.

Our top 3 secondary guys all out against UGA's offense

Nah, gonna call shite players shite as long as there are people dumb enough to pretend like they're not costing us games.

If you seriously don't think missing wide open receivers, turning the ball over in desperate moments and having 85 fricking yards in three and a half quarters are negligible then you need a new sport to watch.

You can't give the other team more points than your own team, throw for less than most of the RBs ran on the day and continually keep our depleted defense on the field over and over again and get a pass.

Unless retards like you keep standing up for it.

I’m pretty done with Franks as well. I gave him all I can in terms of support but he just isn’t improving like I needed to see to continue to support him. I want Jones in now. Not Trask. Jones is the best hope for the future to me. Start building that now. Let Franks play vs South Carolina and Idaho. Let Jones play FSU and Missouri. Then he can still redshirt and we have the dangerous runner on the field vs the better defenses. I’d rather run sixty times a game the have Franks face FSU defense.

This would be awesome.

The Mizzou matchup worries me a little right now because they're pretty good at stopping the run and our secondary is so barren right now.

Well, if we're trying to save our QB from having a lot of difficultly, maybe some growing pains, I understand it. However, I like Trask for depth and maybe even a dual-system like with Leak and Tebow.

Trask has Tebow size, but he's actually a bit of a better thrower. I know people hate dual-QB systems, but I mean, it won us a championship. It would also be a pretty good QB room with Trask (who was constantly lauded as the most accurate QB, even when his hand was hurt), Jalon and Emory.

I think we're going to be running a lot next year no matter what, but I think we're going to need someone who, you know, actually makes the defense think. No one is scared of Franks throwing or running, so they're just allowed to play like they want. Aggressive or zone, they know eventually our QB will make a mistake, just stop the run.

I look forward to these next few weeks.
