… It appears that Athlon Sports sees what I see in Dan Mullen when it comes to being the head coach at the University of Florida. As I wrote in the “Revisiting the Mullen vs. Smart Argument”, Mullen tends to get the most out of the players he coaches. And according to Athlon Sports that is a big but not the only reason for projecting Mullen as a better coach than Kirby Smart among SEC coaches.
… But what seems to set apart Mullen from Smart and many other coaches is what we talked about this week… his ability to prepare and develop players that may not have all of the recruiting rankings of other programs.
Uh hunh. Tell us more, Bob.
But the edging of Smart on the list probably has them frothing from the mouth in Athens.
I don’t get paid for what I do here at the blog, but I really hope I’ve never written anything that embarrassing.
