Muschamp bids another top player Adieu

Florida loses its 4th highly rated player in the Coach "Boom" era

According to Michael DiRocco at jacksonville.com, "Florida has lost four players since spring practice ended last month, but coach Will Muschamp doesn’t view the defections as anything more than the normal attrition that happens every time there’s a coaching change. He watched it happen when he was an assistant coach at LSU, Auburn, Texas and the Miami Dolphins, so he was not surprised when receivers Chris Dunkley and Javares McRoy and running back Mike Blakely decided to transfer."  Read more at Jacksonville.com: http://jacksonville.com/sports/college/florida-gators/2011-05-13/story/florida-football-coach-will-muschamp-not-worried#ixzz1MIBv2azr

Florida boasted landing the 7th ranked 2011 TB in the country with Mike Blakely's commit.  Blakely even enrolled early at Florida. Unfortunately for Coach Muschamp, Blakely is also leaving early, very early. In fact, he is leaving prior to most of the other 2011 commits even showing up on campus.

I'll be the first to admit it, Muschamp leaving Texas for Florida was a blow. It was a gut punch. But, maybe, just maybe, it was a blessing in disguise.  Too soon?  Yes, too soon. I know.  But, I love me some Lisa Lampenalli. 

Let's face it, a great D-Coordinator does not necessarily a great Head Coach make, and maybe it is best that Florida is the testing ground for Coach Boom.  Would anyone trade Coach Brown for Coach Muschamp? 

Muschamp recently said he isn't a "CEO." Soonernation wet their pants over the comment. Of course, they wet their pants if they stand up too quickly, but they and others tried to paint that statement as a slam on Mack Brown and Longhorn Nation.  Truth is, it was probably more of an acknowledgement by Coach Mushcamp of one of his weaknesses than it was a slam on Texas.  HC of an elite program is a CEO position.  Anybody ready to make predictions on Texas vs. Florida in the near future? My bet is on burnt orange, but of course, in Mack I trust!!
