on the good seats after a successful 2014 season.
Brandon doesn't hire or fire assistant coaches in the first place.
No way they keep him for the Bowl game. My guess, if Al is still here, he will be here next year.
I agree, you don't want to ruin recruiting by changing regimes close to the end of the recruiting season.
Borges has no active role in recruiting, so replacing him isn't going to affect offensive recruiting.
Hoke stays loyal and keeps Al for next season. Don't agree with the move, but not my decision.
See you fickle fans! I am going to Gainesville. Me and the little lady are getting tans!!!
Florida has been atrocious on offense for years given the recruiting talent down there; I'm amazed he lasted this long. Again, I'm not expecting a move at OC this year, but if UM was planning it they would need to move quickly because Florida is going to be in the market at least for a new OC (if not a new coach), and I'm not sure how great the pickings are.
I think Borges, Funk, and Jackson are all problems, and all for different reasons. At times I think Fred is slipping, either in his ability to identify talent or develop it. I also think Borges is as hands off with Funk as Hoke is with Borges - the result being a lack of familiarity/too much trust. Then I blame Borges according to the oft repeated refrain around here, that his offense puts players in a position to fail.
For whatever reason, these three critical coaching areas have apparently not meshed well (from an outsiders perspective). That fault does lie with the O.C., but you never know if a positional coaching change is all that is needed/also needed, or a full house cleaning is in order.
Yeah. The running back situation has been a carousel of fuck since Mike Hart left. Haven't seen too many people on here mention FJ's role in all of this. However, I feel icky just firing the guy. Maybe they need to encourage him to retire out of respect...he's been with the program quite a while.
So Florida gets first crack at a new OC. Make this quick Hoke, get rid of Borges so that Michigan can be in line for a top OC. There is no point in waiting for the bowl game.
And under Urban's final days. They got lucky with a great COLLEGE QB who was hard to defend. Muschamp got tired of waiting for Mack Brown to retire and went to follow a local legend. Now FSU, sans the Jameis Winston stuff, has taken back control of the state football lead.
Sounds like the Boise guy either wasn't the mastermind he was alleged to be or got caught under the same "your will run XXX schemes" that Scott Shafer had to deal with as Michigan's one-year DC under Rich Rod and the ill-faetd 3-3-5 D, only Will may want man-ball when Florida teams can run spread.
Most people don't have to wait this long and go through so many changes. Witness MSU's O-Line shuffles a few years ago when they still won 10-11 games, in spite of O-Line issues early.
MSU wins because of a dominant defense. We don't really have a dominant anything yet.
i wish i could remember which of the recent trolls said we should hire this guy. derp.
Al isn't going anywhere. Just saying.
To year two as we did from year one of spread to year two, our offense will be fine. Yes,Taters helped over Sheridan / Threet, but the whole team had a better grasp of the offensive philosophy and workings.
This year was effectively year one of the transition to pro-style after two years of creative fusion cooking. With Bowl practices and spring ball, Borges can install more of the playbook (so maybe there is more than one play to a formation so as not to tip off the play -hint hint).
I hope he keeps a little fusion spice in the playbook and that our young o-line hit the weights hard.
I give him another year.
