TFW Christmas comes early

So, this got my disappointment meter swinging wildly yesterday, especially since I don’t have a subscription and couldn’t read the linked article.

Relief came later, though.

Following one of the worst defensive performances in school history in 2020, Florida appears to be ready to make a few changes on the defensive staff. Sources confirmed to Swamp247 that multiple staff changes are expected, and a UF staff directory listing has been updated removing two assistants.

Safeties coach Ron English and cornerbacks coach Torrian Gray no longer appear on the directory. English removed Florida references from his Twitter biography on Thursday. Gray’s account bio still reads: “University of Florida #DBU#”

Swamp247 reached out to a Florida spokesman for comment on the staff listing change, but he was not immediately reachable.

Sources also informed Swamp247 that a change at defensive coordinator is unlikely. Defensive coordinator Todd Grantham has been on staff with coach Dan Mullen for four seasons now, his three years at Florida and the 2017 season at Mississippi State.

And there was much rejoicing.  Maybe we should start referring to Grantham as Mullen’s Willie Martinez, which is pretty ironic if you think about it.

I’d like to think that’s enough for Todd Monken to turn down a job offer in the offseason — “Sorry, I can’t leave Athens until I beat some of that Grantham ass.”  It’s the romantic in me, I suppose.

    Sadly I clicked on the link. But I find that we have an agent Robinson over there. So that made me happy.

    He broke a school record for most points allowed (PPG) in his last year at UGA…..and if I heard correctly, he broke a school record for most allowed in a season at UF (PPG)..

    Can’t let a guy go like that, that keeps breaking records.

    The “3rd and Grantham” brand is too valuable to let go at this point.

    It couldn’t be more perfect, almost as if we have an agent Mullen. Lose the two guys recruiting Terrion Arnold and keep Grantham. Thank you for your support, Dan.

    “Sorry, I can’t leave Athens until I beat some of that Grantham ass.”….this means the UGA OC ain’t going any where any time soon, cause beating that FU ass is sweet tastin’ year in, year out…throw in a little tigle ass plus some nerdfootball ass, paste a little big urnge ass to the wall, hell Coach Monken might just retire here as the sec ass beater….

    The Uof MFs gave up 144 points in their last three games.
    I can live with that.

    It’s stretch, but the analogy I’m thinking is when Jerry Tarkanian said: “The NCAA got so mad at Kentucky they put Cleveland State on two years probation.” Crabby Dan got so mad at Grantham he fired two position coaches.

    And there it is! Kirby’s ultimate plan for not playing JT against UF has achieved its goal in side show Dan retaining towel boy! That Kirby is a sly one!

    I remember the point in Grantham’s Athen’s tenure that I realized his scoring defense was worse than Martinez’s.

    The perfect example of “being thrown under the bus”.
