Your Daily Gator feels vindication.

Brandon Marcello says the Portal Master™ is the third-most likely coach in America to win his first national title.  Kirby Smart is fifth.

Mullen once predicted nine to 10 wins in a casual conversation before the 2010 season at Mississippi State. The Bulldogs won nine with Relf, a tight end playing quarterback, and blew out Michigan in a bowl game. Ten years later, Mullen made a prediction this week for his Florida team in 2020.

“I expect us to go undefeated this year,” Mullen said Wednesday on the Pat McAfee Show. “I’m not guaranteeing it, because I’ll be honest with you, I have two national championship rings here at Florida and we didn’t go undefeated in either of those two seasons. We still won a national championship.”

I guess that settles it, then.

  1. The best QB developer in the SEC certainly has problems attracting talented QBs who actually want to play for him. Yet, that dunderhead Kirby Smart keeps finding blue-chip QBs that do want to play in Athens.

    They put Dopey/Sideshow/Portal Master Dan MuLLLet ahead of Kirby when his roster is even further away from competing Saban’s Alabama.

    I don’t think the guys at 247 either believe in their recruiting rankings or have a good grasp of that thing called logical thought.

      I don’t think it has much to do with the writer’s intelligence. I think they write sensational stuff because they need to sell subscriptions and they know that us dopes click on the sensational headline more than the measured reasonable headline.

      • The only subscription I have is to The Athletic. Given some of the click bait garbage that 247 and Rivals have been putting up, I wouldn’t even remotely consider subscribing. Their writers have been more interested in the hot take rather than a reasonably well-thought out article on their positions.

          Lately, The Athletic hasn’t been much better.

          Jeff Schultz in particular has been on a tear of bad takeathons.

          Andy Staples, Seth Emerson, and Dave O’Brien only worth so much.

          I love the Athletic and haven’t noticed any issues lately! I request a subscription every year for Christmas. The day I pay to access a recruiting site, is the day I will know it’s time to quit my cfb obsession.

      Yep.. the author, while touting Mullen as the best QB developer in the SEC, fails to mention the job he did with Felipe Franks..

    Championship?! He should concentrate on getting his recruiting class on campus.


    • Let the FU hc spew/spat/wish/prognosticate/bet how their season goes… only ones who care are those that want/need that attention for header usage…cause when you “print crap”, knowing there is not a sliver of possibility, you are then guilty of “print crapism”….#FTMF

    Wow at least he is setting reasobable expectations. When we kick his ass in Jacksonville this year and they don’t even win the east what then? You play every week and focus every week. I hope he never leaves UF

    Marcello is someone not to be taken seriously. Didn’t we establish that last week? 😂

    Feed the Gator Hype! Hate Feeds the Dawg (as they say)!

    Maybe it should have been titled “Will Dopey Dan win an SEC East title before Kirby wins a natty?”.

    Lincoln Riley is 0-1 vs Smart and The Portal Master is 0-3 but Ok my dude. You do you. WTH?

    Meanwhile… back in shark humper land, the Portal Master seeks to tweak.

    He lost me at UCF being 10th. Haven seen his predictions before, I knew I wasn’t missing anything by reading on. Plus, giving the punch line first for Mr, Ofer being 3rd on the list spoiled the need to go further, I had already laughed out loud.

    Bama and our annual brain fart game block our path to the playoffs as far as pundit predictions go, yet the same does not hold true for the lizards? SMH.


  10. Is this your homework Larry?

    “Mullen once predicted nine to 10 wins in a casual conversation before the 2010 season at Mississippi State.”

    Reminds me of the time when I predicted the name of Tom Cruise’s and Katie Holmes’ baby. My wife asked my if I wanted to know the name of their baby and I said “Sure.”

    Mullen undefeated. Will be the first time evah for the Gators. Not Spurrier or Meyer got it done. Not Wuerffel or the GPOOE. They’re gonna face plant somewhere before they get to us.


  12. I mean, its crazy we actually have to play games.

    So Tom Herman is the best coach Texas has had since Mack Brown…did I miss something or is he just the second coach since Mack? Hahaha
