Sunseri chose to come to UF because "3 title rings aren't enough". Man, I hope he gets a shit ton more here.

How Gators' new coach resembles past national champions.
http://gridironnow.com/dan-mullen-resem ... champions/
Now, Buddy Martin is old and he readily admits that many of us are prone to gushing over Mullen after what we just experienced under Mac. So take that under consideration before you read his list of why Mullen is the next Gator football Jesus. :lol:
1. A brilliant offensive football mind (both Spurrier and Meyer) I agree.
2. Sensational play-caller (Spurrier) Many will recollect their love/hate with the dive play, but I agree.
3. Strategic, has a plan to win (Meyer) I think most coaches have "a plan" it's just many of them suck.
4. Can develop three-star prospects into four- and five-star players (Both) He did do this at MSU and at UF.
5. Super-competitive and hates to lose (both) I think those goes for almost all coaches.
6. Passionate (both) Again, see #5. I think Mac started as passionate, he just has a douche persona.
7. Thrilled to be on the job at Florida and makes football fun (Spurrier) Yes, this.
8. A superb recruiter (Meyer) I don't know if I'm in the "superb" boat, yet. Yet.
9. Loves the challenge of being the underdog (Spurrier) Yeah, I see him embracing this.
10. Swagger: Cocky, brash, gutsy (Spurrier) Yeah, I agree here.
One thing I want to see again....during the spurrier era, our teams walked on the field KNOWING they would win, while our opponent HOPED they would win ...
I want to see the Swamp make it legitimately on lists of places teams "hate to play" and are just in fucking awe of being there.
Yes yes, that sense of doom you could see on the opposing players faces.

Moolens making the line of scrimmage a point of emphasis. Kind of a no-brainer, but yeah, it's important to do something about that.
https://www.seccountry.com/florida/flor ... -scrimmage
Having spent 14 years in the SEC as a head coach (Mississippi State, 2009-17) and offensive coordinator (Florida, 2005-08), Mullen has first-hand experience with the battles that take place in the trenches.
Well, 9 years at MSU and 4 years at UF is only 13 years, but you get the point.
Meh, Muschamp called it a "line of scrimmage league" every other sentence. Problem was he only thought about one side of it.

Where the opposing offense is at 3rd and 13 and it's so loud that they're entering the early stages of tinnitus. And they have to call at minimum 2 timeouts during the game due to crowd noise.

And when approaching the line on said 3rd and 13 you could tell by their body english that they just wanted to throw their incomplete pass and hand it over to the punt team.

Yep. Or fuck it, just consider punting on third down. Like the way Spurrier would say when the offense wasn't going well. :lol:

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.

Yeah, coaching 101 tells you that you should generally try to see the player perform the action correctly before moving on.

Consider hell, didn't he actually do it once? LOL!


Oh, and I believe this is the type of thing we're talking about.

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).

His comment afterwards was something like “I don’t have any 3rd and 24 yard plays”
