“Radio silence” in Gainesville

Come for David Wunderlich’s assessment that Dan Mullen won’t show any of his cards before Florida’s third game of the season against Alabama (I agree, by the way), stay for his Grantham take of “While the new strategy blew up in the team’s face against LSU and on third down against Georgia…”.

    Maybe I read it incorrectly but was the author saying Grantham was our defensive coordinator in 2017?

      I was totally confused by that too. And his reference to the score in the natty was wrong too

      What the article was conveying through the FU hc’s dark side was they don’t know how grantham got hired or why he is even on the sideline during those hogtown gatherings waving his towel…#FTMF

        ” Dan Mullen won’t show any of his cards before Florida’s third game of the season against Alabama”….sooo, the FU hc is gonna’ bring his poker face against the bammers or will he just show up in costume and later claim he was never there and the beat down that ensued was all towel boys fault….#FTMF

      No. He was talking about that year’s Mississippi State/bama game.

      No, he was talking about the 2017 Mississippi State game against Alabama that he mentioned earlier in the article.

        Thanks. That makes a lot more sense. My reading comprehension skills are obviously lacking

    Ain’t gonna matter what they do or don’t show early. Bama’s gonna Bama and Gratham’s gonna Grantham. #FBothTMF

    He’s complaining about access to team practice’s. He lives in Naples. That’s gotta be a long drive to get nothing.

    What’s that? Naples, Italy? I was way off!

    Did Florida really give Alabama their “toughest game of the year”? They were never ahead, trailed by 14 at halftime. Got close by the end of the 3rd, never even tied. And Grantham got 50 plus hung on his D.

    Me, I think Nick is gonna put a mortal ass whipping on Mullet, and in particular on the Handbag D. If the Portal Master/Offensive Genius can’t break 50 on the Bama D, they won’t have a chance. Nick has more than 10 years of tape on that offense. They aren’t scoring 50, even if Nick has to pull his entire D from the frat intramural leagues. Which, most likely, he will not.

    I loved Coach Richt, but is Mullet a crankier, more paranoid version of CMR? Very solid, but not elite. And CMR was a way better recruiter, and won the SEC 2x in his, first 5 years. So, maybe a less talented version of CMR.

    Problem is, Saban/bama will be playing football, not cards. Although I’d be willing to bet Saban would put an ass-whoopin on Mullen in cards too.

    Fingers crossed for upsets to FAU in Week 1 and USF in Week 2. A kind God would grant us this.

    Mullen’s first trick play against Bama: the ol’ shoe flicker.
