  1. I am the only fan of the Florida Gators on this board as far as I know. And I don’t have rose tinted goggles about Florida players.
  2. They are 19th with minimal talent and no blocking. And that’s after Trevor just put up 10 points. Fields last five starts has averaged 30 points a game. We haven’t had a stretch like that in years and I think he’s be better set up for success here with our line and DJ Moore.
  3. The police statement is damning. He had two images shared on discord and they found three more on another device. Lock him up.
  4. Yea. Dan Mullen kept starting Franks over Trask and then started Jones over Richardson. He made terrible calls at QB and had to be forced to go to Trask and never wanted to go to Richardson.
  5. You think Florida fans don’t know our team is trash? You guys were expected to win. Folks here keep thinking beating Florida is like playing us in the early 2000s . We are well past us being a 10-11 win team every year. We won 6 games last season. We won 6 games so far this year. You guys won 10 last year and had your QB returning lmao. It’s hard to be embarrassed when we knew we weren’t winning. And Richardson outplayed Levis against all common opponents.
  6. I’m not asking for us to draft Richardson at all, no.
  7. “I’m done playing with these bums at Kentucky”.
  8. I hear this but we are the 17th best defense in the NFL right now from a PPG standpoint. Last year we were 18th. We are 18th in interceptions this year, we are 30th in fumbles. This year we have Brown playing much better up the middle and Horn has played most of this season compared to last season. Burns is even better this year, too. And yet, we are a middle of the field defense. DJ Moore is significantly better than Mooney or Claypool and our offensive line absolutely destroys the O-line of the Bears. *IF* Fields were the pick and he developed through two years like he is trending now, with our weapons and much better o-line to protect him I don’t think the defense would be significantly worse and I think our offense would be significantly better. Plus, all those drives he extends with his legs when needed would give our defense a rest from all the three an outs we’ve had the past five years. If you want a spot to doubt this you can point to Matt Rhule having never developed offensive systems at any stop he’s been in and he has relied on Phil Snow at every level to make a good defense. So there is a chance maybe Fields would still suck here but he lived through Matt Nagy, into a new regime that didn’t put anything around him in year one, and things are still trending up for him. Bottom line, our defense has great top end pieces. It’s time to get a top end QB. I can’t wait for the draft.
  9. I mean he was pretty lockdown when he played last year, too. My only concern with him is he keeps missing time. If it happens again next year its a huge trend for him and its hard to pay him elite money for a CB if he’s often unavailable.
  10. If he’s there around 10-15 you snag him and get excited about the next 10 years.
  11. Being optimistic sounds exhausting? I can’t imagine what life is like for downers to go through their day to day being negative about everything.
  12. Nobody can tell me what to be excited for. But yea when they get here, when we got them no longer matters. If they show some reason to be excited for, I will be.
  13. To each their own about what can or can’t excite you. I find ways to be optimistic about most things.
  14. If the new regime and GM all agree he’s the guy I don’t care where they draft him. Just get me somebody to be excited about.
  15. Z. Wilson, Trey Lance, Wentz, Jordan Love hurts the small school blow up stats guys chances of getting picked high. Too many times a guy in college heads out west and just dominates statistically. Nix has benefit from this as well.
  16. It’s not the players who tank. But for the record, we have say through a lot of Carolina football where the team doesn’t seem interested in winning.
  17. Fields just lost Mooney for the year, too. 30 points a game for five games in a row. When is the last time we did that?
  18. You think LSU with Burrow didn’t have guys running open? You think Herbert at Oregon didn’t have guys running open? Watch tape on any of the games best quarterbacks and for every wow throw where they fit the ball into a tight window there are 5-6 throws where the WR on their first read is 2-3 yards open when the throw leaves the QBs hand in college. It’s much harder being a college CB than a college WR.
  19. And Georgia went with Fromm over Fields. Bama wasn’t properly utilizing Hurts and had him playing over Tua for most of the year. It took Dabo 4 games to figure out Lawrence was better than the kid he replaced. It took Dan Mullen years to figure out Trask was better than Franks. Now Dabo is sticking with DJ when he isn’t doing it. Even Rattler was starting over Caleb Williams. Chris Leak was starting over The Golden Calf of Bristol. This isn’t a unique thing in college football. This happens all over, everywhere. Burrow fit the system just fine. When he was in he put up numbers. He went to LSU and did just ok. Then his second year there with Joe Brady he boomed. And as far as Fields, yes. When I see marked improvement in decision making from year 1 to year 2, and a no talent team around him has a stretch of five straight games averaging 30 points to lead the NFL during that stretch I’ll say there’s for sure improvement showing that there is no such thing as an OSU QB curse. That’s a very weak form of “analysis”.
  20. We didn’t need an additional defensive lineman. Kony balled out in the SB. We needed offensive lineman or another able bodied WR after Philly got hurt early.
  21. I thought he fell because folks were concerned about his injuries/injury past. I didn’t hear anything about him beating up kids.
  22. This is accurate. He is a better prospect than anyone currently on the roster or currently injured.
  23. Joe Burrow was there for three seasons. Justin Fields last 5 games has his team averaging 30 points a game ( and they just did 10 points without him ). Don’t scout the school. Scout the player.
