Welp. In all kinds of weather.
Exactly.After that game and Mullen not even trying to win at the end, I'm done with Mullen. He's lost the team and he's lost me.
Sad. I mean, we KNEW FSU was floundering...Time to “Face Facts” regarding OUR program now.Looks like the Florida-Florida State game will be the winner goes to a Bowl Game.
I’d pretty well reached the same conclusion BEFORE yesterday—and, in spite of everything hadn’t COMPLETELY come off of it last night...Like I said in other posts: Dan Mullen is the best coach for Florida at this time and the floor is 5-7 in 2021 and 6-6 in 2022 for him to get fired—not counting incidents such as fake death threats like Jim McElwain or Title IX investigations like Ed Orgeron.
However, if this administration decided to double the football recruiting budget and increase its football recruiting salaries by 10% then I would say that Florida is ready to build a winning football program and not give any excuses. What I mean is that we can harp on Mullen for his lack of recruiting but he is given a recruiting budget of $1.271M, which is #14 in the nation, but a third of the Georgia, Alabama, and Clemson budget and close to half of the Arkansas budget. Note that Florida spends less on recruiting than FSU, LSU, and Tennessee and about the same as equally struggling Texas. In terms of coaching salaries Florida is behind in spending by about 10%. Mullen does not need the “I do not have enough budget” excuse to explain his bad coaching decisions, but at the same time he is the best man for the job unless the administration accepts responsibility to provide resources that it takes to win.
TLDR: Florida gets what it pays for and Mullen is the best coach at this level of investment.
