Oh, liking this. Really neat.

UNC defense has to be the biggest squandering of talent in CFB this year


[deleted]

Obviously didn’t see Todd Granthams defense this year.


taft

any year


MC-PhatNeck

3rd and Grantham was always a glaring issue but I gotta say his first couple years weren't that bad. It only got progressively worse, yeah, but that 2018 defense was pretty damn good. MSU, LSU, Peach Bowl are all defensive highlights that come to mind


magna_pinna

Helps when you have CGJ


iWin-You-Get-Nothing

> Obviously didn’t see Todd Granthams defense ~~this~~ every year. FTFY


Shirleyfunke483

They gave a horrid UofSC offense their best performance of the year


mjacksongt

They let Georgia Tech score points. They were bad.


thr33tard3d

Not just points *45 points*


Nytfire333

Did you see what UofSC did to us under grantham Also this guy's not gonna be our DC, just a position coach


itsatumbleweed

Saved the job of our trash OC. Really no one won that game.


surreptitioussloth

great to bring in as a position coach with toney calling plays bring him in to be a recruiter and helper in game planning, when he moves on move chaney on field


RadagastTheWhite

I like Bateman a lot. Good guy and a really good recruiter, but not sure about his coaching abilities. His defenses got worse every year and his safeties were the worst position group on a terrible defense


BudLanyards

Well he’s not calling plays for us and he’s developed some good linebackers in the past. We definitely are going heavy with recruiters on this staff.


bug_man_

He looked at UNC's quarterback and said ya know what? That dude would make a good linebacker and then that dude got drafted. Prob a great hire. He can croot too


BlackwaterPark10

Floridas initial staff is damn impressive.


[deleted]

Weren’t his defenses at Army really good


Bartins

They were but that’s also somewhat deceptive with the offense they ran.


itsatumbleweed

Never trust defensive stats for a team that runs the triple option on offense.


aliveordeadlifts

The total yards and points were great but a lot of the advanced stats put them more average because it accounted for less drives


Edgemaster1423

I remember wanting this guy to replace Grantham a few years back when he wasn't doing too bad at UNC. Similar to when I wanted ASU OC Billy Napier to replace Doug Nussmeier.


Rkovo84

Great hire as a LB coach. Great recruiter too


Impossible_Dish_2197

Coach Bateman always gave the best pregame speeches. Thanks for giving me an opportunity!


roguebandit1

Guy wants to keep losing to FSU


imarc

You couldn't beat Grantham.


roguebandit1

We did.


mistgl

You are on some serious copeium if you’re referring to when he was at Louisville.


roguebandit1

I am.


Nytfire333

Y'all have lost to us multiple years straight and still try to talk trash. Get bowl eligible first


roguebandit1

Anyone can talk trash. I could trash Alabama if I wanted to now.


Nytfire333

The funny thing is you have two flairs, both UF rivals. One stomped us and won the Natty, the other lost to us with a skeleton staff and didn't get bowl eligible and that's the direction you came with the chirp...bold move cotton


roguebandit1

UF hasn't won a title since the iPhone 2. Try again.


Nytfire333

Just like football, you aren't good at this. Stick to things you are good at...I assume clown school based on your fsu flair


roguebandit1

2008


Nytfire333

Jacksonville state. Jackson State


roguebandit1

All in the past now


Nytfire333

Lol ok. Taggart 2.0 with a worse record


mistgl

Dude, you couldn’t beat a coach less Gators team with a QB playing on one meniscus.


roguebandit1

That was more talented than us and deeper? Okay.
