I’ve never claimed to be a coach or as smart as the men who coach for a living. But I’ve been around long enough to know good and bad coaching when I see it.

The Gators have been a badly coached team this season, losing two games when I thought they had superior talent.

There was the rash of penalties that allowed Kentucky to beat Florida. Penalties are usually about discipline and discipline is coaching.

Defensive coordinator Todd Grantham’s reputation is a good one, but he’s not showing this year.

Shame, this could have been a special year for the Gators.
