Isn't this Brantley's first year? He's either a sophomore or a junior I think. He looks more suited as a pocket passer and less of a spread QB to me. He's better than Chris Todd, but it seems kind of like AU running the O they had last year with Todd. Florida has had some post Tebow letdown, they are missing some guys that they had last year, key injuries this year and the SEC West + USC is stacked. I'm not sure what adjustments Addazio is supposed to make mid season, but its not entirely his fault. You guys still need a Trent Richardson/Mike Dyer type of back. I do think that he did not get the playmakers the ball enough with enough creativity to keep defenses off-balance. Best of luck with the search.
13 players from last season's team are on NFL rosters today...we've been without Demps due to injury and Rainey due to stupidity for much of the season. We've had several injuries on both sides of the ball that have hurt the Gators. However, 50 yds of offense and 2 first downs at the half vs USCe is completely unacceptable. USCe is playing well this season...and I thought prior to the season that they would give us all we wanted...however, to lose like that, without even putting up a fight, was embarrassing. There's no excuse for it. What's amazing...as bad as the Gators are this season, they still had a chance to play for the SEC. Wow...how truly bad the East is this season.
I wouldn't give that article and presser much weight; Meyer basically said the only thing he can before the season is over. He can't start making threats or talk about demotions right now (especially in public), because there aren't any good OC's available until after the season; and he'd be a fool to cause a rift with SA right now when so many of our top recruits are his responsibility. My guess is we won't see or hear anything significant about an OC replacement until after this season is over and our class is signed. Any other way would be kind of stupid with only 2 games left.
Agreed. Now...I heard SA today say he has every intention on being UF's OC for many seasons to come...is this guy really that clueless? He's a great recruiter...and when its his only responsibility, a great OL coach as well. But he has no business calling plays at UF...and Meyer better change it this Spring...or he will be sitting on one of the hottest seats in America next Fall.
