Your Seat 37F threats won’t save you now.

Shorter Mike Bianchi:  if Urban Meyer were as smart as Ron Zook, he would have recruited less talented players.

    Bianchi is a flaming pile of douche and he’s lucky Mark Richt even ANSWERED his stupid question yesterday.

    Zook recruited for a pro style offense, and was forced to leave. Meyer didn’t need to recruit tip top athletes to run his offense (although often did get those kinds of athletes), and left on his own after a down year. I think some comparisons there are obvious, and ultimately, I think Meyer left after an ambivalent year and his recruiting had taken a hit, particularly after the the departures of his Off. and Def. Coordinators had a bigger impact than initially known, So it’s a combination of a lot of different factors, and I think its the difference between a coach who was constantly striving to get on top, in Zook, and a coach that had lost his mojo. Oddly enough, he left behind a QB that is better suited for a pro style offense, so Muschamp should be happy about that.

    I guess its fair to say that Meyer left behind some talent, but not depth. I think the shift in offensive style also made recruiting a big challenge, as offensive recruits probably shifted in the first year of recruiting. It’s going to be interesting to see what happens.

    Corch’s last class recruiting class was ranked first. He got that guy to pose as defensive coordinator for a few weeks to hold the class in place. The Zooker could always recruit too. Attrition is somewhat Corch’s fault. The arrests, academic disqualifications, quitters, and the like are somewhat on his leadership. Florida’s policy of not oversigning shares the blame too.

    Conclusion: Bianchi trolling.

    Mike Bianchi’s a pussy who would never have written that column if Meyer was still the head coach at the University of Florida. Instead, a sycohpantic tome about Meyer’s greatness would have filled that space. And I’m not even mad about the question he asked Richt the other day, though I’m sure if Florida were the team that lost to UCF, the question would have been phrased quite differently. No, I’m just offended by crappy journalists.

    It is amazing how quickly Bianchi went from smoking Corch’s pole to smoking Muschamp’s. That guy is a real weasel’s weasel.

      “That guy is a real weasel’s weasel.” Agreed and I consider that to be his best quality.

      If Bianchi wrote an article comparing the talent and depth Zook left compared to Meyer, then it might make some sense. However, his whole premise is that the “buzz” around the Florida program is less this year than Meyer’s first year, therefore Zook left the program in better shape.

      Who gives a rat’s ass about “buzz?” At the end of the day, Muschamp’s first year will be judged in wins and losses. Meyer went 9-3 in his first year, bringing in an offensive philosophy for which many of the Florida personnel were ill suited. Chris Leak being the obvious example. For all of the struggles that Florida might experience this year, (and probably will), I am going to say that the athletes running Weis’ offense have the opportunity to run it well.

        Meyer won with D, period. The he won with Timmy and Strong’s D. Both are gone. Welcome home.

          I would not write off the Florida D just yet. And Meyer coached for six year. Tim only started on three of those.

    It matters not what UF’s schedule is or how thin they are in depth, they have already put the W by UGA. We will find a way to lose to them, that’s just what we do and have done for 20 years now.
