So we beat a 2-3 team by 2 points, a team which the evening before lost to Kansas, the defending National Champions, by 20. If Florida wants to play with the big boys they need some big boys. Otherwise, we'll keep barely slipping by mediocre teams and losing to good ones. My strong thought is there is no excuse for a coach who's making $3+ million a year not to have recruited players to support a strong, physical inside game. It's not the fault of the current players, but a coach making that much money (which caused exponential increases in Gator Booster contributions and ticket prices) MUST answer the proverbial question, "What have you done for me lately?" He simply can't rest on the laurels of his two national championships, as significant and fantastic as they were. That was then; this is now.
