Gawd help me, but I have to say the Gator message boards have become more entertaining than StingTalk. Which is really saying something, when you think about it.
Take this thread posted in response to CBS ranking Kirby higher than Mullen in a list of SEC coaches. You’ve actually got people making inspired arguments that recruiting is an overrated aspect of college coaching.
I just feel like Kirby’s getting the benefit of the doubt because his roster is SO stacked that there’s no reason he shouldn’t be in position to keep having his team right there in the thick of the playoff hunt. Maybe he continually proves that he’s an inept in-game coach and never actually ends up breaking through. With Mullen, I think you still wonder a little bit more exactly how much more he has to do to get UF back in the playoff hunt so he has the same shot to break through that Kirby has.
It’s like a bizarro Dawg Vent from a couple of decades ago. They’ve become what they once (rightfully) mocked.
