this was messaged to me, thanks Iain Poll. Unprecedented success...thats what Urban Meyer bought to the Gator Nation. Two national championships, a Sugar Bowl and a Heisman. He won the 2006 championship with a team largely recruited by Ron Zook, a team that were 'inept'...hmmm well recruited and badly coached I would say. Now the glory days are gone, Urban was a poor recruiter but a great coach, he was replaced by a great recruiter, but a terrible coach (he had never been a head coach before). Now the program is at a cross roads, facing the possibility of decending to the level of Tennessee or Kentucky. Will Muscamp obviously has the passion and the drive, but no where the level of experience or talent. No one in the Gator Nation would be ashamed of our record if there were signs of a competitive future. Steve Spurrier struggled at South Carolina, but there was always the feeling that they were on the verge of somthing special. Not at Florida, not with Muschamp, we are on the verge of armageddon..loosing ...
IF YOU'RE A GATOR FAN, YOU MIGHT WANT TO READ THIS. If Will Muschamp is fired, here's a short list of likely candidates to replace him: Dan Mullen- Current head coach at Mississippi State. Was offensive coordinator at Florida from 2005-2008. Recruited players like Tim Tebow, Percy Harvin, Aaron Hernandez (this was back before he killed a guy), and the Pouncey twins. Larry Fedora- Current head coach at North Carolina. Offensive coordinator at Florida from 2002-2004. Recruited several players for UF that would go on to be key members of Florida's 2006 National Championship team. Jedd Fisch- Current offensive coordinator for the Jacksonville Jaguars. Graduated from UF and was a graduate assistant under Steve Spurrier. Has coached for 5 different NFL teams and from 2011-2012 was the offensive coordinator for the Miami Hurricanes. James Franklin- Current head coach at Vanderbilt. Only coach on this list with no previous ties to UF, but is considered one of the best young coaches in the country. Charlie Strong- ...
As we look ahead to the final season of the BCS in 2014 before we go to a four team playoff, the SEC is poised to push the streak to an unprecedented 8. Here are the teams that could compete. LSU- All their offensive pieces return and even though they lose a lot of defensive talent to the draft, Les Miles and John Chavis will be sure to have their defense playing at a top 5 level. The game of the year will be November 9th in Tuscaloosa, Alabama to see who can conquer the mighty SEC West. Alabama- AJ McCarron's senior year with TJ Yeldon as the running back and Amari Cooper catcching touchdowns is scary. Add in Kirby Smart's defense and we could be talking threepeat. The Tide travel to College Station, Texas in their first conference game which will set the scene for the National Championship picture, and even if they get past Johnny Football they still have the Tigers in early November. South Carolina- Imagine Steve Spurrier's offense with the best defensive player in the country. Jadeveon Clowney is . ...
Auburn University just fired their head coach Gene Chizik after four seasons. He went 8-5 with an Outback Bowl win, 14-0 with a National Championship, Heisman Trophy winner and number 1 and 2 NFL draft picks, then after losing 31 seniors to graduation he went 8-5 with a bowl win again, then loses his offensive and defensive stategists and only wins a couple of games this season and gets fired. Woody Hayes, Lou Holtz, Steve Spurrier, Joe Giaurdi, and Eddie Robinson ALL had bad stretches and were given time to correct it. Short-sided, greedy, and egotistical move by the Auburn administration. Another losing year is different but what those ignorant SEC people forget is this was Chiziks FIRST losing season at Auburn.
I guess it's time for Frank Beamer to move upstairs and for Va. Tech to hire a coach such as Urban Meyer, Steve Spurrier, Nick Saban or Chris Peterson of Boise State. Tech needs this kind of Coach to lead and "Recruit" the best players not only from this State but from across the Country in order to play for the National Championship. Coach Beamer has done an excellent job getting Tech to plateau that they are on, but has not been able to recruit the best players in the country that could push Tech to the Top level.
Steve Spurrier said recently that it is harder to win an SEC championship than a national one. "Ask Nick Saban" (apology to Rick Bragg)
"It's easier to win the National Championship than the SEC. Ask Nick Saban." -Steve Spurrier
"It is easier to win the National Championship than it is the SEC" - Steve Spurrier
Winning the SEC is harder then winning the National Championship! -Steve Spurrier-

Clemson fans are talking about how the Carolina baseball team and the Carolina fans are "racist" because of the comments made to Arizona's Asian player. First of all the stadium was full of fans other than just Carolina. Yeah the fans who did say things of that nature to him were wrong but for people to say that Carolina fans are racist and things of that nature is ridiculous. Sorry we went 2-3 in the National Championship in the last 3 years. I didn't see any Clemson fans say anything about when Dabo Sweeny made himself look dumb when he falsely accused Steve Spurrier of making comments about Clemson and not only embarrassed Clemson University but Clemson fans and the entire state of South Carolina. So when you Clemson fans become perfect then you can talk about what SOME Carolina fans say.
