Big pick up!

Florida has been missing electric playmakers like Van Jefferson since Meyer left.

Now they're trying for Trevor Grimes, the five star transfer from Ohio State. Illness in family brought him back to the state. There's a good chance he gets cleared too.

Here's hoping!!

I was afraid this would happen.   I have no idea why McElwain was such a poor recruiter.  Maybe he was lazy or just unfortunate but recruits were not buying what he was selling.   But history has shown us recruits like going to Gainesville and a decent coach like Mullen should easily start restocking the shelves.  I truly feel Tennessee and Florida are in a foot race to see who can get relevant first and Tennessee is starting a couple hundred yards back due to the stink around the program from the coaching search.  My only real hope for Tennessee is what I constantly post about the State's prospects improving.  We are no longer a barren wasteland of football recruits and if the trend continues as the larger markets like Nashville keep growing I do not think we will be dependent on states like Florida and Georgia much longer.

I think Pruitt is better at identifying talent and the sales part of recruiting. but the flip side is that Mullen has a better product to sell right now.

I just want Florida and Tennessee to get things on track so SC realizes they aren't that good...

They are so excited about that 9 win season but they fail to realize that winning 9 games in the SEC and not finishing ranked shows you it was not that great of a season. Not many power 5 teams with 9 wins finish outside the top 25

The SEC East is a mess.

Yes it is...but I think Mullen can get Florida competitive year 1. The talent is there to win 9-10 games

Tennessee has a little more work to do

Mizzou should have a dangerous offense again.

UK will just stay consistent

What is going to be tough is our, as always, front loaded schedule.  ESPN just ranked Tennessee as having the toughest stretch of games in the whole SEC: https://www.seccountry.com/tennessee/es ... me-stretch .  Florida, UGA, Auburn, Bama and Scar.  

I don't know why we can't stretch out our tough games more.  It has been a problem ever since I can remember.  At least they scheduled our bye week between UGA and Auburn but damn, that is going to be a rough 5 game stretch.

Tennessee has no control over SEC schedule...you can thank SEC offices for screwing you when they made the schedule

Maybe Fulmer still has some friends in Birmingham from his snitching days.  That stretch emphasizes how important a Florida win this season would be.

Lots of recruiting buzz surrounding Florida. Wasn't there before with McElwain.
