McElwain vs. Muschamp
Posted 10 October 2017 - 01:13 AM
McElwain was brought in to ignite the offense, but this unit has been worse than it was during Muschamp’s time at the helm of what Steve Spurrier once called, “this great big battleship that we call Gator football.” UF is currently ranked No. 103 of 130 FBS teams in total offense. The Gators are No. 93 in the nation in scoring with a 25.0 points-per-game average, but don’t forget that Florida has three defensive TDs. Without those, UF would be averaging 20.8 PPG.
UF averaged 23.2 and 23.9 PPG in McElwain’s first two seasons. Muschamp’s last team scored at a 30.3 PPG clip.
Guess what else? McElwain’s recruiting has been the worst this program has seen in decades. Even Ron Zook recruited at an extremely high level. And the great defensive players Muschamp left are nearly all gone. That side of the ball is sliding rapidly and experiencing fatigue with a lot of young players getting a ton of playing time.

Convinces me even more that we got a steal in hiring Muschamp. Given what he has been through in Gainesville, he knows exactly what this job in Columbia means to him and his future in coaching. I think Champ would rather have a bullet to the eye than to face failure for a second time… at an SEC school. THis is all he wants for now and he knows we "rolled the dice" on him. I think those dice are loaded.
Which makes me believe he will monitor our offense progression or woes. Time does not stand still if things need to be corrected; Champ knows this.

I've always been of the opinion that Florida dismissed Muschamp too soon.

Ahh, I can see the light, Q-b, your post has artistic and creative over tones.
"I've always been of the opinion"......very smooth, indeed!
Just love Leopard Lax!
