Imagine, a Danny Kanell tweet in which he’s not totally off base.

    He’s not wrong. Feels weird to type that.

      I’m so conflicted. I know that they can’t keep losing and keep Mullen but that is what I want to happen. He needs to win the last 3 in convincing fashion and drag that program underwater for one more season at least. Somebody can rebuild that into a power again with the right hire.

        I agree, how do you fire a guy poised to dominate the Music City Bowl ?

        But the odds of them making the right hire are pretty slim. Their AD seems pretty risk averse so as bad as they want Kiffin I don’t think that’s going to happen. But as somebody pointed out, Kiffin is too shot out and flakey to handle the pressure of that job anyway. Cristobal probably ain’t leaving his gig to come to that dumpster fire. They really don’t want Tucker all that bad because he’s a defensive guy and they want an offensive guy. Specifically one that runs a “fast offense”. They think they’re too good for Mel Tucker. I’ve seen Billy Napier’s name mentioned on some of their wish lists. If they weren’t so arrogant and had a little self awareness, they would learn from Tennessee’s mistakes and hire a fair to middling coach who is a decent recruiter and would bring some stability and stop the bleeding. Then in a few years they could make a big hire. But they think they’re Alabama and they want it all and want it now and think they’re entitled to it. This is why they will fail. One guy over at their 247 board said, “Three things to watch for in a potential new coach, arrogant, weird, and lazy.”

      I would go so far as to encourage it.

      If you look at their message boards they now know who they are. When you lose your own message board moderators it’s really bad. They know he’s been a HC about as long as CMR without a single league championship. Recruiting is something others do for him because no body likes the guy.

      MuLLLLLen has always been on 8-4 on average head coach. He lucked into someone else’s players. Trask and a few others helped him over achieve. He got lucky SBIV got hurt last year or there’s no East title. Welcome to another lost recruiting year FU. Hopefully Scott Strickland is able to keep him around for another year. Many think Urban will pull a Saban and leave Jacksonville to return to his past glory and save them from this dread. We should be so lucky that Urban does return. Kirby would destroy that burned out shell of a coach and their dreams.

      Gator tears are always the sweetest.

    Remember, you can’t fail at recruiting. Only recruits can fail your coaching.

    He’s so fortunate he lucked into the situation he had with Kyle Trask last year. Nobody thought he would be that good and he probably wouldn’t have seen any playing time without the injury to Felipe Franks. Then Trask falls in his lap and has an amazing year. Without last year and Trask playing lights out, they likely lose a few more games and nobody would be putting Mullen on the pedestal like they did.

  8. I am enjoying the absolute collapse in n Hogtown almost as much I’m enjoying the fruits of Kirby’s labor in Athens.

    I watched a good bit of the Hillbillies and Mildcats last night. It was amazing how bad Kentucky has looked on defense. We need to go to Knoxville on a mission to destroy anything wearing that t.

    The blue pussy cats began their downward spiral when their coach made a chicken shit move calling a timeout with 4 seconds to go to score a meaningless touchdown.
    Karma doesn’t like chicken shit!!
    mizzou will get a taste of Karma following multiple timeouts to score a meaningless touchdown (Karma made the mizzou QB throw behind his receiver in the endzone)

    The team quit on him when he didn’t try to score with 2 min left in the Kentucky game. Up until that point they had almost beat Bama and had the upper hand. His decision was one a lower ranked team makes against top tier teams- we’re going into halftime with a lead, thankfully.

    The way he handled that was a vote of no confidence in his guys, and they knew it. From that it’s been a steady decline.

      Dawg flu it’s called. Highly communicable. You see it affect every team that plays UGA. Symptoms last approximately four weeks and the effects are poor play and losing.
      Or it could simply be coincidence that teams who get their ass beat by the Dawgs lose for the next month before recovering as Sakerlina and Arkansas just did.

    Love hearing a professional troll chastise folks for being quitters. Get a real job then tell us how big a proponent of hard work you are. The last time you got paid for doing anything but being verbally incontinent was 2001.
