    More BS! Corral, who has played sparingly in mop up duty, and you’re saying he’s better than Franks. Unreal! What I’m telling you is Mullen wanted EJ more than Corral and he got his man. What is with you and the ugafish guy total obsession with everything UF? You really need to get out more and yep away from the keyboard!

    No, we're not saying he COULDN'T develop a pocket passer. We're saying his system calls for the QB to be a running threat and that therefore he prefers QBs who fit this profile. Its not tough to to understand. Really.

    Oh, and he clearly did improve Franks.

    RollLaugh


    Mullen pursued and got Emory Jones who was a top 50 recruit in America and who fits his system far better than Corral would have.

    He didn't remain a Gator commit right up until the early signing date. This is yet another fact you got wrong. Mullen didn't push him out right away. He wanted to see if he could get someone else who was a better fit and who was a really talented prospect. Had he not been able to get a better fit, Corral would have been better than nobody. Once it was clear he was going to get another top shelf prospect who was a better fit in Emory Jones, Corral saw that and bailed.

    In other news, No charges against Perine.

    Come on, 64% of Georgia’s team last year were freshmen and sophomores including 14 of these 5 stars we are talking about so it’s not like they could graduate or be in the draft this season. Add in 5 or more players who were 5 stars like Eason, Fields, etc transferred out in the past year.

    This take is inaccurate. Corral decommited prior to Mullen meeting with EJ.

    And Corral’s last second flip came as a surprise to everyone & left Mullen scrambling to find a QB before the early signing period. When asked why Matt flipped, his dad responded, Matt was always 100% commited to the Gators. Unfortunately, they weren’t commited to him. Embarrassing for Mullen, former MissSt HC, to have Corral poached by Ole Miss.

    So now desperate for a QB, Mullen went all-in & offered EJ absolutely everything. Folks expected EJ to sign with tOSU. Mullen clearly sweet talked him. But EJ learned the truth of the situation, later saying, “When I first got here, I was expecting to come in and play a lot. But I mean, reality hit, and I just had to just go from there...”

    Hmmm...

    I’d think we did a poor job recruiting if guys were coming in and then immediately walking out the door because it was something different than what they thought it would be and we lied to them during recruiting, or we sold them on a dream that wasn’t true.”

    Like you said, Mullen would “lie to get recruits just as much as college guys at a bar trying to pick up drunk coeds.”

    Word was out that Mullen was pursuing other options and that Corral was not a good fit.

    and no, it did not come as a surprise to anybody who followed Gator recruiting. Get that quote from his dad? UF wasn't committed to him. UF was pursuing other options as I told you.

    Wait! So....you're telling me a hotshot recruit expected to start right away and then was slapped in the face by reality? Why....I never! I'm just sure that's never happened at UGA or anywhere else. :rolleyes:

    Mullen does the same things every other coach does when recruiting. Get a clue.

    The thing is that corral is a good runner.

    He can run but he's a dropback passer. Emory Jones is a better runner.

    OK. So there's nothing really to judge them on so far in terms of their college careers.

    Riiiiiiiiiiiiiight.

    That’s why Mullen and new QB coach Brian Johnson flew to California on Dec 11 to do an in-home visit. Bc they’re not committed to him. Lol. They found out Ole Miss visited & flew the fvck out there. Four days later, Corral decommits. A day before his official UF visit. Surprise!

    All we know is that Matt far outperformed Emory at running.

    You're arguing out of both sides of your mouth here. First you cite the father saying UF wasn't committed to his son.....which matches what multiple Gators told you already.....but oh wait! Now that we said it again, now you want to argue the exact opposite! LOL!

    He ignored Steele & he ignored Corral not bc he didn’t want them but — wait for it — bc he’s a shvtty coach.

    Wanted both but didn’t attend to either. Too little, too late. Two top recruits gone. 100% on him.

    Congrats.

    You're full of crap and have no idea what you're talking about.

    Its hilarious seeing a couple of Georgia fans in this thread act like they know UF's program better than Gators do. They don't even know what they don't know.

    The difference is, I don't claim to know UGA's program better than UGA fans themselves do. I certainly don't go on and on and on page after page day after day claiming I know their team better than they do.

    Nobody cares. That’s the difference. Look at any college football news site and there are zero negative articles about GA, barring Gator fanboi Bianchi (but recent Mullen events & he looks like an idiot).

    Current headline pages have primarily negative articles about Mullen & the Gators. Por exemplo:
    • The Chris Steele situation is clearly an awful look for Dan Mullen, but not just because of his previous comment
    • Florida Players Going at Transfer Chris Steele is a Bad Look for Dan Mullen
    • STAR FLORIDA FOOTBALL RECRUIT CHRIS STEELE TRANSFERS AFTER ROOMING WITH TEAMMATE ACCUSED OF SEXUAL MISCONDUCT
    • Dan Mullen addresses spate of disturbing off-field incidents involving Florida players, staffer
    • Florida Gators’ Dan Mullen 'disappointed’ in Jalon Jones, Brian Edwards accusations
    • As off-the-field questions mount, Dan Mullen addresses Florida’s handling of Chris Steele, Jalon Jones
    • Disaster continues for Florida, Dan Mullen after third 4-star decommits
    • More bad news for Dan Mullen and Florida Gators
    Here are the current typical Georgia articles:
    • Three Georgia linemen rated among SEC's best -- offensive line will be strength of UGA in 2019 (USA Today)
    • Georgia football fans celebrate another Sam Pittman recruiting win as 5 star Tate Ratledge commits
    • Thursday shows just how big a difference there is between the Georgia and Florida programs
    Perception is reality. The media bashing Mullen. Georgia’s stock rising. Gator stock plummeting.

    Uf has been trash ever since Urbans final year in 2010, so what does that make UF?

    No one cares about 1980, 1990,1998,2007 or 2008. All old news. Uf has been crap for a decade now. Stop living in the past.

    Why are you (and so many other Dawgs) so damn mad about “the past” aka reality if reality doesn’t matter?

    Reality does matter and 1980 was a long, long time ago.

    The reality is that it’s 2019. You seem to be “damn mad” that folks don’t respect UF like they did in the mid 00’s. In fact, it’s been a bad decade, and a bad couple of months for UF. That’s why folks are laughing at UF currently.
