From one of the new GC writers

Maybe this is beating a dead horse at this point, but in each of Pat Dooley's last two podcast episodes, he's made a point to talk about what some people told him about last year's football practices. Specifically, he said that these people told him the Gators had "no shot" at being good on offense because mistakes weren't corrected on the spot in practice. If a player did something wrong, i.e. a receiver didn't run a route properly, they were told what they did wrong but weren't made to do it again until they got it right.

It kind of blows my mind that coaches wouldn't have players do it again until they got it right, because if they don't actually do it right and get told it was right, how will they know what getting it right feels like? It seems kind of unbelievable, but then, they often looked on the field like a team that didn't really know what doing it right feels like.

So if you need another reason for optimism, here's one for you. It would seem from these reports that Florida's offensive practices were run ineptly last year, and there could be at least some amount of improvement simply from better practice habits. I know we've been guessing that the new coaches will get more out of the players, but here's one specific way it might happen.
where were these reports when mac was renegotiating his buyout? he should have been fired for cause
I don't recall phat pat mentioning any of this while it was going on...i don't follow him in print or pod so maybe he did but he is supposed to be a fucking journalist. Fire pat! :mad:

It happened a couple of times between 99 and 00 seasons. I'm pretty sure he did it against MSU in 2000. that was a shitshow
MSU, '97.
not sure what this means. I'm referring to the 2000 game where Jesse started, our run defense got steamrolled, and Rex was put in at the end of the game (i believe he took an intentional safety on a 3rd down at one point).
An intentional safety isn't a punt now, is it? Cuz, that's what we were talking about.

The second dumbest AD in college sports (Crazy Joe is forever #1 in my heart) is Ohio St's Gene Smith. Last week he complained about escalating coaches salaries..
Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith decried the rise in coaches salaries in a meeting of Ohio State’s board of trustees’ talent and compensation committee last week.

Smith compared Ohio State to Texas A&M and Jimbo Fisher, who received a 10-year, $75 million deal from the school this offseason.

“I don’t even put Texas A&M in our sphere because I’m considering Urban [Meyer]’s situation with three years left on his contract,” Smith said, per The Lantern. “Talking with [Susan Basso, vice president of human resources] and [Joanna McGoldrick, associate vice president of total rewards], that’s not even someone that we’re comparing with because it’s so ridiculous.

“It’s the same way with Alabama and their total salary. Take it off the sheet because it doesn’t matter. Because it’s just no value to it. It’s a reactionary type of management.”

Salaries for college coaches keep going up, and Ohio State’s certainly been a part of that. Urban Meyer made $6.4 million in 2017, good for fourth in the country behind Alabama’s Nick Saban, Clemson’s Dabo Swinney and Michigan’s Jim Harbaugh, per USA Today’s database. But the distinction Smith would likely make about Ohio State is that the Buckeyes aren’t at the top of the country in terms of assistant salaries.

Greg Schiano was Ohio State’s highest-paid assistant at $700,000 in 2017, which ranked 41st out of all FBS assistants. The Big Ten’s highest-paid assistants are all at Michigan: defensive coordinator Don Brown, passing game coordinator Pep Hamilton and offensive coordinator Tim Drevno all made over $1 million in 2017.

Buuuut a week later he hands out winning lotto tickets to HIS staff including more than doubling the salaries of Greg Schiano and Ryan Day..

Again, this isn’t hard. Florida was rocked by Michigan in the opener, Jim McElwain was done, the team was boring and bad, and the fan base dwindled. Yes, the Gators were dealing with hurricane problems in late 2017, but they were also on their way to winning the SEC East.

5 key in-state recruiting battles Florida needs to win.
https://florida.247sports.com/Article/F ... -115157729

All are currently 4-star players, a couple likely to be 5-stars.
CB Kaiir Elam
OG Deyavie Hammond
WR Jeremiah Payton
DT Derick Hunter
OLB/DE Lloyd Summerall

Top recruiting HB's in Florida.
https://florida.247sports.com/Bolt/Rank ... -115159271
Richt, Taggart, Mullen...in that order followed by others.
In Mullen's case, his perception as a less-than-top-shelf recruiter might not ultimately matter; if he's able to turn the Gators around on the field, the recruiting success will follow.
8-)

Players talk about their reaction to the unfortunately named "St. Valentine's Day Massacre" in light of the mass shooting. Even still, the workouts elicited some responses from coaches, players on social media.

The highest-ranking uncommitted 2019 recruits in the SEC footprint
http://gridironnow.com/highest-ranking- ... footprint/

Noah Cain, RB - 5-star; LSU wants him bad. IMG Academy kid.
ILB Nakobe Dean, LB - 5-star; #1 ILB from MS who is a priority for Ole Miss, MSU...could bode well if Mullen and staff are already on his radar.
RB Trey Sanders, 5-star from IMG. Florida making him a priority. #1 RB and top 10 overall player. We want this kid. We need this kid.
DT Ishmael Sopsher, 5-star from Louisiana. Top priority for LSU, but Florida in the mix. #1 overall player in the nation.
CB Derek Stingley, 5-star from Louisiana. Florida in his top 10 list. But also goes to school 7 miles from LSU. That sucks.

There are others. I chose the ones that Florida may have the best shot with or have directly offered.
