So he can’t recruit or develop talent. Got it. Can he coach on game day, or is he bad at that too?

Mullen has made his career on beating up on bad teams and failing against anyone with a pulse. He can’t recruit and created this myth that he can develop. Fools gold. Perfect fit for Florida.


That you make stuff like this up signals fear.

He's developed multiple NFL quarterbacks and took Miss St to a level they'd never seen before.

Actually he is pretty piss poor adjusting on the fly. He usually has a good game plan tho. Same for Grantham. His philosophy reminds me of Joe Lee Dunn.

The first half is accurate though and it's been broken down numerous times on this board at this point, so no sense in revisiting...

The second half is misguided... Can't tell you what poster was thinking.

It's kind of accurate because he never beat big teams that I can recall, but at the same time he was at Miss St.

Well he was at Mississippi State. Beating up on bad/okay teams, getting a win against a ranked team every once in a blue moon, and losing to the Big 6 is about as good as it's ever been or ever will be there.

It's silly to talk some of his perceived failings at Mississippi State (even though he's their most successful coach ever) and think that for some reason those things will also be problems at Florida.

Mullen won, what, three games against ranked teams last year alone?

They're much less impressive when you see that Georgia wouldn't have finished better than 3rd any year if they were playing in the West.

Well now thta is just a dumb take, since we won the SEC one year and almost won the National Championship, and came within a whisker of winning the SEC the next year.....but you go ahead and make wild guesses based on games not played and how YOU think they would have turned out.

quote:

Nah, I said Kirby would never get you a championship with his own players.

No, you didn't. You said the only reason he was winning was because he had Richts players and he would fail when he got his own players.

quote:

The closest he got, hilariously, were from Richt's team -- carried by running backs he coached and recruited.
So, you want to base it on one year? Seems fair. But Dan Mullen is the greatest based on....wait.....one year?

quote:

I can't wait to see the spin when Kirby doesn't get you guys a National Championship in five years.
Yet he still will have been closer than Mullen after 5 years.

Chip Kelly and Dan Mullen.

This entire thread is Georgia smack talk.


Re read. We were talking about last year. And....you don't think I can find Gators talking in this thread about beating Georgia?

ETA

Here. let me help you out. This is from this thread:

When Georgia's money runs out, the're screwed, because the talent will only get you so far. Kirby is trash at coaching.

And not ONE trophy to show for it..

I'm sorry, I forgot I was talking to UGA fans. When we say Trophy, we mean the big one. I know most of you guys probably werent alive the last time your team won one so I understand. But I'm talking about a National Title.

Are you? Last game I saw, Texas was whippin your arse on National TV Florida fans have become Texas Longhorn fans all of a sudden.

Again, Im talkin big boy trophies. Try to keep up


Ok, cool
#Hookem
Another longhorn fan? Shocking. I fguess if you can't beat us you become a fan of somebody who did.

The fear is real from UG fans, Gators are coming for you, leg humpers.


I know it's your Superbowl and after losing so often to Spurrier, Zook, McElwain you are excited to get a couple wins, congrats, but don't get used to it. That shite about to end, soon!

"This entire thread is Georgia smack talk!"-StrawsDrawnatRandom

Poor, poor gators. Everybody is picking on them, and they just sit there and take it. Most of those comments came in the first 3 pages of the thread. And over the years it has been worse. Now that the tables have been turned you want to pout because Georgia fans are dishing it right back at you and you want to sit in the corner and pout about it.

Well I'm not saying you should or shouldn't be pissed, but what do you want Mullen to do? Smart has a lock on the division and is killing it in recruiting and taking many players that are in Florida's front and back yard and we are going after bigly.

If I was making 5 or 6 or however many millions Merlins is making I would be doing damn near anything I could to try to not be at a disadvantage to Georgia every football season and recruiting cycle. It is easy for me and you to play Mr. Nice guy but throw a few mil in there and I might not be so nice to you.


I understand what you are saying and I agree with you. But I don't think giving that coach bulletin board material and making him want to beat me worse is a good way to go, do you? The best thing to do is keep quiet and win on the field. That usually says more than anything.

well this is a dumb thread and you should feel bad for actively contributing to it

I'll talk smack once the game gets closer but trolling UF for having 3*s decommit months before signing day is pretty pathetic

What he did at MSU is irrelevant. It’s a different situation.

If you can produce a top 10 D at State you can do it at Florida so yes. Just like if you can take State to #1 you can do the same at Florida in Mullen’s case. What’s not fair is saying what they did at State is there ceiling. Did you catch that?


LO-fricking-L ... No one said it was his ceiling... This started from you saying that Mullen's examples of dipshittery at MSU were irrelevant but Kirby's few gaffes on special teams fake calls are a sign that he's somehow a lesser coach. The point was that *literally* every coach eventually has some boneheaded calls to point to.... Nick Saban included. If you're going to use their dumbest decision to define them, then the only coaches who are exceptional are the ones who never take risks/chances... and ultimately would be really average at best coaches because they'd be too predictable.

Are you twelve, or just dense enough that you don't understand when you've talked yourself in a circle?

So you think Florida fans are talking more shite than Georgia fans?

At this point, no... earlier in the year, absofrickinglutely. But that's the thing... if you chirp over and over about how you're going to be great in 2019 after a 3rd or 4th place East finish the year before, win in Jax this year by multiple touchdowns, Kirby is Mark Richt and nothing more, etc... and then you have all this shite start to pile up in your off season, you (as a collective fanbase and your mouthpiece of a coach) have invited all the shite talking back on yourself... If we had done it and then shite went sideways, you can rest assured, it would be more than just Gators piling on... (look back at some of the Justin Fields threads after he transferred... which were justified given how some fans acted like we were somehow guaranteed success after landing him on the heels of Fromm's success).

It's like a kid who sprays water on another kids shorts and then says he peed his pants and tries to get people to laugh at him... but everyone saw him do it. Then he *actually* pees his pants and can't figure out why people are laughing at him.

quote:

Or do you just think that the smack Georgia is talking is warranted and the Florida smack talk is not?

I think it seems a little misguided talking smack about a game which you've lost by 2 TDs or more both of the past two seasons, meanwhile you're mostly losing better talent than you're replacing it with, and your coach seemingly has UGA so much on his mind it's potentially distracting him from running the program effectively to the point that all of this offseason shite is raining down around him. It just seems odd... Ultimately, you guys do you though.

FWIW, I think many UGA fans are chalking the 19 UF game up as a much easier win than I think it will be (and possibly having a little amnesia on what last year's game actually felt like due to the final score)... I would figure this year plays a lot more like last season's, where the game does have a bit of a back and forth feel for a good chunk but with UGA ultimately winning by 7-14 or so... 2020 would seem to be the year for UF to target as a "we need to win this game or this could start to feel like a massive tidal shift"... We would be most likely replacing QB, LT, RT, RB1 on offense at a minimum and a big chunk of DL players should be turning over as well as 1-2 safety spots.

To be the best in the SEC, have to recruit the best. Bama’s the proof & model.

Players decommitting, especially top recruits like Steele, not only creates a depth issue but questions Mullen’s (& staff) ability to recruit & keep elite players. It’s a bad look that makes negative recruiting easier for opponents. Look how many top players GA, Bama, Clemson have taken from the state of Florida.

Couple that with Mullen’s trolls of GA & it looks like he doesn’t have his priorities straight. Is there any other current SEC program that’s had this level of player attrition?

It all begs the question: is Mullen in over his head at a program like UF — that’s reached the pinnacle of college football success & expects to reach it again — when he’s failing to recruit elite players & failing to keep the ones he’s got?
