you thought that was an excellent article? I thought it was just a case history from Alabama past.....as far as an excellent offense..........how many teams in the SEC use the pistol? I can off the top of my head think of at least six with multiple formations. Nothing new here. UF tried to run a stealth spread.....I say stealth because even the players didn't even know when it was being run. Then they tried running the pro/spread........a hybrid that never did work out. Neither Driskel or Harris could run and throw together really well. Driskel could run, but not throw well, the opposite for Harris. I know Mac was a good position coach at Alabama....no one is doubting that. He took a CSU team from nothing to a very good team............(in the Mountain West conference!!!!). Now as a HC in the SEC, he will never be better than Saban and the UF hopeful HAS to understand that Let's just hope he can recruit and coach.............THIS IS THE SEC.
ONE THING: Can the UF faithful accept the fact that McElwain will always be a 2nd fiddle coach in the SEC????? or even a third fiddle? with the likes of great coaches in the SEC now? Probably not!!. Will they give him the time to be first chair.......at least four years to get there? Probably not!!! McElwain has a large learning curve to endure from some really good SEC coaches in Saban, Miles, Richt, Spurrier, Mahlzan, Mullen, Pinkel and Sumlin........ and the fast upstarts in Jones, Bielma, Freeze, and Stoops. When you think of it......the SEC has the collection of greatest coaches by far than any other conference. Yeah UF fans..........the time will come.........but will you and the UF faithful give him that time?
One Thing: Can we all agree that this guy's opinions are worthless?
