LSU offer was for tight end only

Nick Fitz literally had zero offers worth mentioning

I think he had one other besides MSU and that was like middle Tennessee

Name 3 head coaches better with QBs/offense then Mullen

Harbaugb might have been one recently but not atm

Tim Tebow and Chris Leak couldnít be anymore different

As much as finding a QB is important itís also about putting that Fla talent and speed around him

And UF will surprise a lot of folks with all the talent Mcelwaine was about to waste if he got a 4th year

Just need to put together decent OL and find average QB for some of these guys to finally shine

Jordan Scarlett could run for 1200+ and 10 td easy

Van Jefferson could have a 1000 rec yds easy

Copeland or Toney could thrive in Percy Harvin type position

Also Malik Davis is getting healthy him along with Scarlett, Lemons, and very promising trufrosh Dameon Pierce UF is frickin loaded at RB

Also at WR too really just need billy g to teach em what the last guy wasnít

I think it is telling that far and away Sumlin's best year was his first, which featured a Heisman winner he didn't even recruit and truly develop. His teams got worse the longer he stayed there, and he wasn't even able to keep on the team, much less develop, the 5-star QBs he did recruit.
Must have me confused I don't remember saying anything about Sumlin. I just don't think Mullen will necessarily be the answer for Florida.

He is semi successful as a head coach but never really got offered a big job until now. Just not a believer in Mullen, Yet!

He may be great but I am a wait and see kind of guy. Just not sold on Mullen, I would be saying the same thing if he was hired at Tennessee!

He was running Meyers offense with Leake and Tebow not his own back then, They are similar but still different.

But I completely agree Florida has tons of talent that hasn't been developed or wasn't utilized properly under McElwain!

I don't think you guys will surprise anyone looking at your schedule! You have 8 wins for sure and really should win 10 if Mullen is half the coach that we think he is, But McElwain won the SEC east 2 times in 3 years, I am just sayign that Mullen is gonna have to compete for the SEC East quickly or he may not be there long. Short leash in Florida!

It wasn't a knock on Florida it was an opinion on their situation!

The O line has been the most glaring weakness for the past decade.

and ftr, i'm not looking to devolve this in to a 'who's got it worse' conversation...just that there are some similarities between our two programs, and where we really are right now.

the race back up the hill will be interesting to watch.
