08:22 AM ET 11.16 | If Urban Meyer is going to return Florida to an elite level, he'll very likely be doing so with offensive coordinator Steve Addazio. Despite rumors and criticism, Meyer said Monday he believes Addazio will be back calling plays next season. And quarterback John Brantley dispelled rumors that he was thinking about transferring from Florida. Addazio has received much of the blame for the offense's struggles. The Gators are currently ranked 82nd in total offense. And if Addazio is the most frequent name when discussing the offense's failures, Brantley isn't far behind.

Look who's #1.
Brantley is God awful. Time to develop a starting QB for next season, bro.

Get a spread QB!

Did you really expect him to say that Brantley sucks even if he does?

Sounds like a sandwich...

... "a spread QB" lol.

He had one in Cam Newton.... who actually appears better than Tebow in that offense.

I wonder, is this not so great of a season costing Florida (6-4) and Texas (4-6) to lose top recruits?

We hardly need the Slantinel to tell us about what's going on. ;)

Do you all think Coach Meyer is going to say that Daz will be fired at the end of the year while at a PC?

Do you think JBIV would take the mic at the same presser and announce his intentions to transfer at the end of the season?

Me thinks not.

Thanks!

Lucky for us Gator fans/alum, the boosters are saying the same thing in Darth's ear.

Not so far. Florida was really up against it after last year's class. The on-the field product coupled with lots of attrition from that class *may* and I repeat, *may* actually help.

QUOTE(#14):

I dont think so... UT is still #1 and UF is top 5

Texas will always have great recruits...

... because they are located in one of the top 2 states for in state talent (California being the other).

If Texas loses it will never be due to lack of talent.

Combine that with Mack Brown's recruiting skills and the cupboard will not be empty.

Are you referring to possibility building character?

FWIW, they have 2 spread QBs already on the roster... Driskell coming in is suppose to be dual threat... He aint the 2nd coming of Tebus either though

One really (Reed). TB can run the O from the QB position, but it's hard to call him a QB since he doesn't throw the ball. ;)

Not sayin' JD is TT, but their rankings are nearly identical, FWIW...

Florida is the number 1 state for recruits. CNNSI.com did a study on this. Florida has the most BCS conference division 1 signees of any other state over the past 10 years. Texas was second and California was third.

No. While loses do help build character, I was speaking to playing time. A **** team could make recruits believe they would see the field early. A 9-0 UF after last year's recruiting class would have a harder time pulling recruits than this year's abomination of a football team - that's was my point.

Referring to post 21, the results of this research was in one of Stewart Mandel's columns. Even despite Texas being more populated Florida still had more kids sign. Pretty amazing. 10 National Champions within the past 27 years came from Florida schools.

Not yet but it will be a long 3 months til signing day. more worried about he 2013 recruits.

Nah, it's not like the program has taken a nosedive. They just need to make a few changes. The talent will be there.

I did see where over 50 players on the Oklahoma State roster is from Texas? Wow!

Here we are with that cross-armed Shannon type look of bewilderment on his face! What could this portend?
