Muschamp comes up big where Meyer could not

08:33 AM ET 02.18 | What Urban Meyer coveted, a big back to run for Florida, Will Muschamp landed just a few months into the job with Matt Jones. So how huge is this pickup for the Gators? Gigantic. No. Really, it is. Notice how almost every team in the SEC, except Florida, has a tank-like running back to carry most of the offensive load? It had to be frustrating for Gator fans to not see a Florida running back reach the 1,000-yard mark under Meyer. In fact, Ciatrick Fason (6-0, 215) was the last Gator to eclipse 1,000 yards in a season way back in 2004 when he finished with 1,267 yards and led the SEC with 105.6 yards per game.

I didn't know we could discuss **** size on fannation.

I thought things like our "manhood" were off limits. Perhaps Urban could use some of those herbal supplements that keep filling my spam box.

Not having a 1,000 yard rusher...probably irritates the hell out of Emmett Smith.

Buckeyeboy, you should change the number at the end of your user name to 41-14.

Muschamp may have the big back, but until he wins a NC, I don't think there's much of a conversation about him vs. Meyer coming up short.

Hey you guys won the game leave it at that. Nobody cares about the Tebow era it's over. What have you done lately? Total remake of offense coming and don't expect a quick turn around.

+1 TT's in Denver now and the other players from both those teams are scattered to the four winds.

Not as "over" as the Woody Hayes era.

Go punch a player. Maybe it will keep them motivated during the first five games of the season.

My bad...didn't look at the number first. Corrected it later. See #13.

What have you guys done lately, besides getting half your team suspended?

Haven't you noticed? The buck nuts have been playing some damn good hoops lately!

Back to the topic...the SEC is moving from finesse back to a power offense, which is why the SEC West is so much ahead of the East right now. It's all cyclical.

And now back to the off topic...and yes Woody, OSU did beat Arkansas. Only by the futility that was Arkansas not picking up the punt block and calmly strolling into the endzone. Y'all almost gagged another one away!

Lets see Win a National Championship or make the fanbase feel good by having a 1000 yard rusher???

February 18, 2011  09:29 AM ET

And since Myer ran a spread offense that relied more on speed than power I would have never expected him to land a big back.
