    Florida fans, what's your take on Roper?

    Kurt Roper named as new Offensive Coordinator at Florida. He held the same position at Duke. I don't know much of anything about him.

    Needless to say, Muschamp's azz rides on this hire.

    What is your take? Optimism? Uncertainty? Pessimism?

    He has been with Cutcliffe since Ole Miss. I don't know if he can take credit for Eli, but he coached him.

    Re: Florida fans, what's your take on Roper?

    If he's a good QB coach, then there's a much better chance for the incoming freshman to play next year. I think his name is Greer. Is he enrolling early? that would really up his chances? that's assuming Roper can't transform Driskell. If he can do that, then he is a world-beater QB coach. and good QB coaches generally make good OC's.

    I still think Driscoll has the potential to be a good QB. His supporting cast was nothing to write home to momma about this season.

    Grier is the kid coming in this coming year.

    I know on other boards some UF fans aren't too happy. However, sometimes it can be better to hire a not so hot name. Should definitely be interesting to watch.

    Not sure about Roper, but the last coach we got from
    Duke worked out well.

    Grier is coming in January.

    Anyone would be an improvement over Pease, IMO.

    No excuse for a school like UF to be in the 100s nationally
    on offense. So optimism is the plan.

    If it doesn't work out Muschamp is gone.

    I just don't understand what went wrong with Pease. He was really really good at Boise.

    He was good, or Peterson was good?

    I saw good out of him, but it just wasn't consistent.

    IMO, Meyer left the cupboard bare. Who is the last really good WR you had? QB? The O line hasn't been any good since the Pounceys left.

    can't be any worse than the first two "hot names" Muschamp hired. this time, there's been no "best OC in the country" declaration. maybe Muschamp learned his lesson.

    but really, he must think a lot of Roper. his job is riding on it, I'd say. this is his 3rd chance to get the offense right. can't imagine Foley giving him a fourth.
