Jags gone regress bad. Rookie RBs never sustain in year two.
and this is why no one has ever accused you of being the brightest bulb in the pack.

OK. I'll bet $100 the Jags have a worse regular season record, $100 additional bucks they have a worse record including playoffs, and an additional $100 Fournette doesn't have as many yards next season.

Jesus Christ. That's a dumb bet. They could lose 1 extra game, Fournette could rush for 1 fewer yard and I would owe you $300. Go bet that shit with someone dumb enough to take it.

If Fournette is healthy all year, he won't have fewer yards. You act like the core of their team isn't coming back.

Don Mullet wants to balance the roster

TAMPA -- Florida coach Dan Mullen is looking to balance out his roster at each position, and there are a few spots that are currently a little tricky.

Mullen has provided his ideal numbers at each position in a given recruiting class, and from there we can extrapolate the rough balance of how the roster should look. It's not all that dissimilar from either of the last two head coaches, though there are one or two areas with a little heavier emphasis.

For one, Mullen's offense will probably be a little heavier on receivers and tight ends than running backs than former coach Jim McElwain's. What the new coach really wants to avoid, though, is an issue that has plagued Florida's offensive line for years: unbalanced classes.


"I play the numbers game all the time in roster management," Mullen said last week in Tampa. "You're constantly 'how many do we have at this position this year? How many do we have to sign?' You never want to have to sign too many at one position in any given year. It's not healthy."

After severe mismanagement of the numbers from 2010-12 on the offensive line, Florida is still trying to recover roster balance at the position.

The Gators signed just six offensive linemen in that three-year span and two saw their careers end quickly (a medical hardship and a transfer).

That left Florida scrambling to bring in offensive linemen over the next few years, causing some pretty severe reaches and even further unnecessary turnover. The Gators signed five offensive linemen in 2013; only one finished his career at Florida. They signed six in 2014; only two either finished at Florida or remain on the roster.

Finally they had better luck in the 2015 class, signing five with only one no longer with the program.

The issue now, though, is that Florida is going to have some serious attrition up front following the 2018 season. Four seniors on the offensive line are set to graduate, while junior Jawaan Taylor could conceivably depart early for the NFL. Even if he doesn't, that would leave Florida with just 11 scholarship linemen returning and a target number at the position of somewhere between 15 to 17.

Mullen doesn't want to have to take that many offensive linemen in one cycle.


"One of the things we have to do over the next three to four years is create some roster balance where we don't have a mass exodus at this position in one season and now you're trying to go recruit seven offensive lineman in one year," Mullen said. "That's not going to work. So you want to have that balance."

So what exactly does Mullen's ideal roster balance look like in a given recruiting class?

Here's how he broke it down last week in Tampa:

1 Quarterback
1 Running Back
2-3 Wide Receivers
1-2 Tight Ends
3 Offensive Linemen
3-4 Defensive Linemen
2 Linebackers
2 Cornerbacks
2 Safeties
0-1 Specialists

Here's how Florida's current scholarship chart shapes up, as of May 16. Briefly, we'll outline a few things of note.

Image

-- If Mullen wants to maintain decent roster balance moving forward on the offensive line, don't expect the Gators to take more than four this cycle. It wouldn't be surprising either to see a graduate transfer for the 2019 season or a transfer in that could balance out the current redshirt freshman class.

-- Florida will definitely need to take at least two tight ends in this recruiting cycle.

-- Numbers are relatively good defensively, with the only really glaring need inside at defensive tackle. Florida needs to add both true nose tackle types and three-techniques that can also play strong-side end in a pinch.


-- Florida probably won't need a specialist in this class, as it wouldn't be surprising at all to see walk-on Tommy Townsend go onto scholarship in August. At that point, he would not count as an initial counter after having been a walk-on at Florida for two years.

Oh and by the way, that's enough Jags/NFL talk in this thread. Take this shit outside, fellas. I am partially to blame, so I'll also calm the f down with it.
Here's something shitty for you all.

He's a screechy little dweeb who reminds me of the sickly kid who could never play sports but is now some kind of expert. Never cared for his style or his voice. Occasionally he goes so spastic that it's funny but that's about it. He's also an asshole to work with per some who've done it.

During the Spurrier years my then wife and I were members of our local Gator Club. They had Mick in to speak once and instead of giving us cool behind the scenes nuggets about the players and coaches he spent an hour and 10 minutes telling us his life story. When he took the podium there 200-300 people in the audience and when he was done there were about 10....and that was the cleaning crew.

I will confess a fondness for listening to his calls of same but that's a. because he's such a Gator homer and b. the aforementioned spasticness.

It's odd that UF has had only 3 radio sports broadcasters for the big three sports in the last 50-60 years and one of those (David Steele) was only for about 3-4 years. The other two are Otis Boggs (GREAT radio name) and The Little General.

That must be the case. I think Boggs was better than Hubert but that may be dislike of Mick skewing my interpretation.

Not to mention, he's always a long way behind the play, and he doesn't give out the score often enough during basketball.
