Florida -- As the swamp burns -- Updated 8/16 2 PM EST
March
MAR 3: 2020 4* QB C. Beck commits to UGA. Admits to using UF to get offer from UGA

MAR 11: Dan Mullen makes infamous comment “I’d think we did a poor job recruiting if guys were coming in and then immediately walking out the door because it was something different than what they thought it would be and we lied to them during recruiting, or we sold them on a dream that wasn’t true" This was widely believed in the press to be a veiled reference to the UGA Justin Fields situation.

MAR 25: 2016 4* DE A. Clayton enters transfer portal from UF

April
APR 4: After UGA recently scheduled home and home games with Texas, OU, Clemson and FSI in the upcoming seasons Dan Mullen said "We play Florida State, so people are trying to catch up to us, with how tough our schedule is, to be honest with you," coach Dan Mullen said. "We play Florida State every year, right? Georgia is playing them (now). They’re trying to catch up to us, I guess. Toughen their schedule."

Florida has not played a regular season non-conference game outside the state of Florida since 1991.

APR 13: Dan Mullen said he liked to use spring game attendance numbers to troll rivals, but when Florida announced its spring game attendance number of 39,476, a lot of fans and reporters trying to crack the code simply scratched their heads. It was later found to be a troll of UGA. It's been 39 years since Georgia last won a national title. The Bulldogs have played 476 games since reaching the pinnacle of college football achievement.

APR 15: 2018 4* DE M. Langham enters transfer portal from UF. Will join Vandy this season
APR 23: UF recruiting staff arrested for stalking and threatening to blow up ex-girlfriends car
APR 27: 2021 4* ATH K. Wilcoxson decommits from UF

MAY 7: 2017 3* DB B. Edwards arrested
MAY 9: 2019 4* CB C. Steele enters transfer portal from UF. Steele was UF’s highest rated recruit in 2019, enrolled early and was expected to contribute this year. He has been given immediate eligibility at USC this year.
Steele Eligibility
MAY 9: Top 2021 5* DE B. Langston de-commits from UF

MAY 10: 2021 4* WR T. Rucker decommits from UF
MAY 10: 2020 Top 100 Recruits begin cancelling official visits to UF after Steele incident

MAY 13: Paul Feinbaum on Mullen's antics on Birmingham-based WJOX 94.5 FM radio program, “The Roundtable.”
“Devastating. Primarily because of Dan Mullen’s mouth. He’s been running it for months, frankly, he’s been running it since he was born,” Finebaum joked on the air. “I was in his office three and a half weeks ago, I heard him running his mouth about Georgia and it caught up to him and now all those people who have been sitting around going, ‘I wonder why he’s doing that?’ are turning on him.

MAY 15: Dan Mullen makes controversial comment about violence against women (cites Jeffery Simmons case)

MAY 20: 2020 4* DT J. Carter from Apopka Fl. commits to UGA
MAY 22: 2015 3* LB Rayshad Jackson (ILB depth) enters transfer portal

MAY 30: Mullen claims he started the Ole Miss/MSU rivalry
“Many years ago when I became a (head) coach and we started building at Mississippi State, you didn’t have this huge tradition and other things, so we built this rivalry between Mississippi State and Ole Miss,” Mullen said. “And so everything became that everything I say must be an attack at Ole Miss, and everything they are saying is an attack at Mississippi State."

June
JUN 1: 2020 4* DT Warren Brinson from IMG chooses UGA over UF
JUN 10: 2020 4* CB J. Williams decommits from UF after 3 weeks of being committed.
JUN 10: 2020 4* OT J. Braun chooses to be UGA's 3rd OT in class. He was UF's #1 OT on their board.
JUN 20: 2020 4* WR Marcus Rosemy commits to UGA over UF shortly after official visit to Florida. Assorted Gator message boards claim there is a Kirby conspiracy with recruits being pursued by UGA and UF.

JUL 11: 2018 4* OLB RFr. D Reese out for year with a torn Achilles.

JUL 14: UNSUBSTANTIATED RUMOR: The rumor mill is churning that multiple UF players will be suspended for the Miami game and one player may be implicated in a title IX case. Apparently Mullen is trying to keep it under wraps.

JUL 15: 2015 Walk-on turned scholarship player OL Nick Villano enters transfer portal during Dan Mullens SEC Media days news conference.
JUL 15: 2016 RB L. Perine makes statement at SEC Media days "Man, fans, honestly Florida probably has the most bipolar fans ever"
JUL 29: 2019 5* RB K. Milton commits to UGA. UF continues to struggle to identify a RB willing to join the class after Coach Knox missed out on 5* RB Bowman from traditional Florida pipeline school Lakeland
JUL 29: 2019 4* WR A. Henderson and 4* OG W. Wilson are still not on campus with fall camp already started.

August
AUG 6: 2016 3* CB CJ McWilliams is out for the season with a torn achilles. McWilliams was expected to provide much needed depth and experience to the UF secondary.
AUG 6: 2018 3* CB J. Huggins status on the team remains unclear after incidents involving choking a tutor, and marijuana incident inside his shared dorm room. Huggins has been absent from the team's practices so far in fall camp, dealing with what coach Dan Mullen described last week as a family situation. Huggins was expected to be the backup nickelback this year.

AUG 10: 2018 3* CB J. Huggins has been dismissed from the team. UF Continues to lose depth in the DB group.
AUG 10: RS Sr JUCO 3* OL Noah Banks to medically retire. Banks was expected to start or contribute on OL this year.
AUG 16: 2019 4* WR A. Henderson declared not eligible to enroll at UF

To date UF's 2019 class has lost 6 total players. Two players to transfers, three who failed to qualify and one who can't get his US Visa in what was the 9th ranked 247 class. Removing the five players that will not be on the team this year UF would have been 17th in the 247 recruiting rankings and 8th in the SEC. (257.73 - 21 commits)

The gators current 2020 class sits at #13 in the 247 composite with 18 commitments and a 89.93 player average which is good for 6th in the SEC. UF is quickly closing the talent gap with the top of the league.

Seems like Mullen knows what he’s doing.

Edit: I will keep updating as this SEASON rolls along.

I think they beat UF for sure. UF has 3-4 losses on their schedule. Seems about right for a Mullen team.

That’s 20 5 star’s since Kirby arrived to UF”s ZERO.


And yet we finished the season ahead of you in the Coaches Poll.

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

You should go all the way back to January where they beat Michigan’s scout team.

Dumbest brag ever, but UF is desperate after a decade in the trash can.

Yawn. The off season is a time for trolling and we see the lowbrows on the rant pad their post count.

I also think we swept their baseball team at some point in the last two weeks. Getting hard to keep track of it all.
