This is fine, Gators.

While we’re on the subject of the Toddster, check out this vote of confidence from *** checks notes *** one of his defensive starters ($$):

“We made the adjustments we were given to make,” linebacker Mohamoud Diabate said. “It seemed like they were hitting with a similar scheme, kind of a counter run. We had whoever we had in the box so we had to play it how we played it.”

Now, postgame Zoom calls don’t allow for the kind of one-on-one reporting where players clarify or amplify their responses, but unlike previous occasions when players went out of their way to back Grantham, this felt different.

“I’m confident in my teammates and my teammates’ ability to play hard and be where they’re supposed to be,” Diabate said. “I’m confident in my teammates.”

Asked about what adjustments might’ve helped slow down LSU’s running game, Diabate offered: “Honestly, I don’t know. That’s not my decision to make. I don’t look into those things. I’m like a soldier. When the general tells me where to shoot, I shoot. I don’t really ask too many questions. That’s y’all’s job.”

    One guy over on their 247 board is calling for Spurrier to coach the team the ready of the year. Please, please, let that happen effective immediately.

    I was texting with some friends during the game when our inside zone runs weren’t working, that Monken should go with some counter plays. Two plays later we busted one on the counter play and we kept running them successfully for the rest of the game. And then I remembered how LSU destroyed Florida with that same play and we all got excited for the Florida game.

      It was mystifying watching LSU run the same play over and over for like four straight possessions and Florida never stop it or even slow it down, really. It was almost exactly like watching the 2014 Georgia-Florida game. You know, except it was fun this time.

    Having Spurrier on campus is a luxury for the gayturds. An in-house interim head coach should “something” happen.

      I said a few weeks ago that I thought their support of Mullen was a mile wide and an inch deep and that when they turned on him it would be fast. I see it happening. The bitching about him is getting loud.
