Love gets you twisted.

It’s funny, but I recognize the place Spencer Hall is at today.  It’s the same place I visited five years ago.

What’s funny is that he’s at least approaching the dumpster fire with the knowledge that Muschamp won’t be coaching in Gainesville in the near future.  I expressed myself while thinking that Richt would stay as Georgia’s head coach in 2010.  Fortunately, the way events played out, patience was the correct call.  But that sure didn’t make me feel any better at the time.  Which is probably why I didn’t have the stomach for gallows humor then.

    Don’t call it a dumpster fire, there’s not enough spark in that offense to start one.

    Richt at his worst was never at Boom’s level. Richt had already demonstrated good coaching when he got the Willie’s. Boom has had one season, that’s turning out to be a fluke. He’s in way over his head.

    Of course, if Boom gets a few more chances to hire the correct OC, I’m fine with that.

      He can (and should) bring Charlie Weis back – but at a higher salary.

          If Foley acts now he may be able to roll some of what they still owe him into the new contract!

          Charlie the Tuna. Top Gun. Mr. Roper. The Overton Window on Boom’s Offensive Coordinators has been slammed shut. That’s only because we didn’t calibrate him properly. Unfortunately, with Boom there’s no middle ground. His best year of 2012 was so good we had to dial him back. However, we choker-chained him so much that the 2013 season turned out to be the worst since 1979. We were fortunate Florida didn’t abort the mission in November 2013. This year he’s been living on the edge. He is just simply too good at what he does. When he does leave though, they’ll have a program in disarray, no offensive skill players and a great defense. Plus they get to pay him somewhere in the range of $6M so in that respect there is a silver lining despite the early termination of Boom goes the

      At least Spencer makes the proper diagnosis, their defense is propping up and valiantly trying to save the other 2/3 of the team which is in shambles. Lots of Georgia fans in contrast were blaming the only part of our team which was remotely competent, the offense.

    I look at the game and all I see is Mizzou scoring 4 non-offensive TDs and the UF D held the offense in check: I still find that discomforting. On offense, we all know Driskol isn’t the answer. I’m worried they trot out and start Harris who blows us out of the water passing when we least expect it.

      FU has 2 weeks to get ready. A win might save Boom’s job. In 2005 Irvin Meyers installed a completely new offense during that 2 weeks off. FU will definitely come out with something new.

        I’m really encouraged by what I’ve seen as the season has progressed and Pruitt has had time to work with the D. It’s just hard to look back at all those games we should have won and have complete confidence. I believe if the Dawgs come in with the mindset that they’ve had the past two games and play like they are capable of it will be a blowout but I can’t stop that nagging feeling that they could also pull a major choke out like so many times in the past. Either way, I’ll love ’em but I’d rather be toasting with salty gator tears at the end of the game.

      Ah, what the heck, Foley. Bring back Irving Myers for an encore. He’s already familiar with the law-enforcement landscape in G’ville. Gotta compete with the Semiholes, remember.

      Kirby Smart? Something tells me they aren’t gonna go for another former Dawg DB. Although ‘Agent Smart’ does have cache, and brings back memories. I’m sure a lot of fu players would appreciate ‘the cone of silence’ after dealing with Boom for the past few years.

    One it is awesome to see Spencer Hall and to some extent Ryan Nani go through the last 2 years with Florida. They are funny guys already and their approach to the situation in Gainesville has been just really fun to watch.

    If you are a sports fan you are going to go through this at some point.

    Also helps that it is Florida with a former Georgia player as the coach. A former Georgia player that basically renounced his affiliation with the university when he took the job. Combine that with a nice winning steak and the fact that Boom has NEVER won a game in Jacksonville makes for some sweet sweet schadenfreude.

    That said, I really doubt that UF screws up the next hire, but it is going to take time to wash the stink out of that locker room.

    Almost feeling sorry for these arrogant fucks is an indication of a serious character flaw…It is Florida, ya know?

    Agreed. To any bleeding hearts out there, the Florida fan base deserves every ounce of misery that is coming to them.

    And as far a similarities go, I never saw a Richt coached team have the same level of sustained hopelessness that 2013-2014 Florida has.

    They could offer us a million dollars and a forfeit, it would save fans of both teams the time and cash. If theyt bailed on the last game and the traditional song at the end, why the hell waste time going to Jax> UGA would be a much better game for them to not play than Idaho. Looks like they won’t have a bowl game to risk at this point.

    I think we should demand the Lizards unconditional surrender this week and start planning for Kentucky and AU immediately. I’m still troubled by the giant playing NT for Kentucky and the general criminality over at AU though.
