Dolphins assistant to be Gators new defensive coordinator

Dolpins inside linebackers coach George Edwards is set to be introduced as the Gators new defensive coordinator, sources have told The Miami Herald. LINK!

Seems like a risky hire to me. Edwards has not coached at the college level since 1996, when he was an assistant at Georgia. Can he recruit? Dolphins linebacker Channing Crowder has called Edwards "the best assistant coach in the NFL."

Nice work Urban Meyer. 3 Coaches hired and shoring up an entire recruiting class in one week! Ready to reload!....UM, keep re-building.... Maybe in a few more years..."it's still a young team"! I love that. It's been a "young team" for the last 3 years!

Go Gators!

Yea great coach...the Dolphins linebackers are definately a strength or not.

Yeah man great pickup.... I'm pretty sure our LBs were one of the main reasons for our 7-9 season...

Take Crowder with you PLEASE


Thanks Gators,

Sincerely Dolfans everywhere

This beat down is boring. Is Corso trippin' on his meds or strokin' out? He's babbling like Liz Taylor. Desmond Howard can barely keep a straight face. ABC should ditch hamburger and company and let Corso and Desmond call the rest of the game!

Jo, I'm surprised you're not all over the implications of this hire. For UF, adding Edwards means even greater credibility and inroads recruiting in south Florida! Five-star recruits like Hicks, Powell and Floyd may be more eager to sign with UF this year. However, in order to lure Edwards one must wonder whether he is being promised consideration as the head coach within a few years. Very interesting times.

Great hire for Edwards and UF. Another fairly young, energetic, smart coach who will be a college HC within 3-4 years with the talent at UF. UF will continue to have statistic-leading defenses for years to come.

curious how they will ultimately realign the defensive coaches.

With Bedford gone and Heater lobbying for the job, do they give Heater some type of raise and promotion and expand his role to include the cornerbacks in addition to the safeties?

I don't know about a "risky higher" but Edwards may very well be a risky hire. And for those hating, I don't think you realize he's coached the Dolphins LBs since 2005...not just in 2009.

Man Jo, you are hire than a kite with that!

The guys survived the last 2 coaching changes for a reason (Saban, Cameron and now with Sparano). Look at the crappy talent at LB - everyone knows that and WR are probably the Phins top 2 needs (maybe DT if Ferguson is done).

Here's a guy who brings pro-credibility which will make a difference with the recruits. Plus he's been in south Florida for many years now. I think it's a pretty good hire, although I thought Heater was going to be promoted to the D coordinator which surprised me.

FIVE TUMBLERS
Five teams inside the final Top 25 who could struggle


1. Florida


Uncertainty surrounding Urban Meyer. The loss of Tim Tebow. A pair of talented juniors -- Joe Haden and Aaron Hernandez -- have already left early; up to five more, including two-fifths of the starting offensive line, could follow suit. Charlie Strong left for the head coaching job at Louisville, and his presence will be missed. If he does indeed return as expected, it will take the best coaching job of Meyer's coaching career to keep the Gators on top of their lofty national perch.


2. Cincinnati


Butch Jones is a tremendous football coach, but make no mistake -- losing Brian Kelly to Notre Dame will hurt this program. This won't be a free-fall -- Kelly left too solid a foundation for that to happen -- but Jones could struggle in his first year at a BcS school.


3. Penn State


Losing quarterback Daryll Clark to graduation and Navorro Bowman to the draft are huge blows to the Nittany Lions. Evan Royster, get your rest. The offense will be on your shoulders.


4. Texas


Losing Colt McCoy will have an effect on the Longhorns, although Garrett Gilbert showed in the BcS title game after being suddenly thrust into the spotlight that he has a bright future. In 2011. UT will dip a little bit in '10 -- not bottom out, mind you -- but look out for a reloaded group in '11.


5. LSU


In the first three years of Les Miles' tenure, the Tigers did not win less than 11 games in any season. In the past two seasons, the Bayou Bengals have gone a very pedestrian 17-9, including an even 8-8 mark in SEC play. The concerning part for LSU faithful, though, is that there is not much hope that a turnaround is in the offing at any point in the near future. And, if Miles doesn't turn it around in 2009, he could very well find himself on the coaching hot seat. Especially if he continues to boggle the mind with mind-numbing clock management at the end of games.


FIVE RISERS
Five teams outside the final Top Ten who could surprise


1. Nebraska


Sure, they have to replace a Beast Named Suh, but there is plenty of talent on the defensive side of the ball returning for Bo Pelini & Company. If the 'Huskers could just get some type of consistency on the other side of the ball -- yeah, I'm looking at you Zac Lee -- this team should be the class of Big 12 North and might be able to challenge Texas for conference supremacy.


2. Miami of Florida


The Hurricanes showed in the early part of the 2009 season that the talent is there. Look for The U to put it together throughout the entire 2010 season and make a serious bid for both an ACC title and top-ten ranking.


3. Pittsburgh


With Dion Lewis and that defense, the immediate future is looking very bright for Dave Wannstedt & Company.


4. Oklahoma


Simply put, Bob Stoops is too good of a coach, and there's too much talent in that program, for the Sooners to spend another season outside of the Top 25. Call this one a hunch.


5a. Stanford


Yes, the likely loss of Heisman runner-up Toby Gerhart to the NFL leaves a void, but, as long as Jim Harbaugh doesn't bolt for the NFL and quarterback Andrew Luck stays healthy for the entire season, the Cardinal is poised to challenge Oregon for Pac-10 supremacy in 2010.


5b. Tennessee


Lane Kiffin made most of his news in 2009 for what he said and did off the field. Behind all that brashness, however, he and his staff were quietly rebuilding a storied football program on the field. They might be a year away, but it would be no surprise at all to see the Volunteers challenge for a BcS berth as early as this year.



The Hurricanes showed in the early part of the 2009 season that the talent is there.

The talent?????

What dade county doooshbag wrote that nonsense?

Convenient of him to ignore that there is no Oline, a frail QB, a no LB depth, and a coach that consistently blows game day management.

Ohhh yeah....their rising alright.

The "talent is there" part is the funniest part. What Typepad blog did U pull that jibberish off of? U keep dreamin now...U hear?

These Cane Tards are grasping on to any sliver of hope they can Arty ... This ONE no name guy writes this up before the Bowls were even played and Cane Tard refers to it as Holy scripture ...

The best part of it all is how his "Tumblers" Fla.-Tex.-PennSt.-LSU will all have top 5 recruiting classes only to reload yet again ...

U go ahead and bet the house IThinkItCould ...

See U right back here next year trying to grasp Ur "here we are again, but Randy's building something" mentality.

COACHING HOT SEAT


1.Rich Rodriguez, Michigan


The throne entering the 2010 season is RichRod's alone, and no one else is really close. An 8-16 overall mark in two years at Michigan is bad enough; a 3-13 record in Big Ten play is wholly unacceptable in Ann Arbor. Add in an NCAA investigation and two losses to archrival Ohio State by a combined 46 points, and you have a coach facing an absolute must-win season.


2. Ron Zook, Illinois


Really, is there any explanation needed? With the exception of a head-scratching 9-4 season in 2007, The Zookster has compiled a 12-35 record in his five seasons with the Illini. The school has recruited better than that record indicates, which is a tribute to Zook's innate ability to coach his players down.


3. Paul Wulff, Washington State


You don't go 3-22 in two seasons and not have your butt planted on something with at least a little bit of warmth to it.


4. Mike Gundy, Oklahoma State


T. Boone Pickens did not donate approximately $300 kajillion (U.S.) to watch his beloved Cowboys go 9-4, not play in the Big 12 title game and lose bowl games. T. Boone wants more bang for his buck, and what T. Boone wants T. Boone gets.


5. Pete Carroll, Southern Cal


This one might be stretch. In fact, it's so much of a stretch that I might've torn a muscle typing it. However, with the looming specter of an NCAA investigation coming to a conclusion at some point this year, coupled with an utterly disappointing 2009 season, Carroll could be feeling the heat more so than he has at any point in his USC career.

MIGHT be a stretch with # 5 huh ?

All credibility is gone ...

I think you have her eyes kehoe.

John Taylor deftly covers 345 topics in one internet blog post. Now that is hard hitting stuff that U can hang your desperate hat on.

Is there anything worse than these round-up publishing hacks?

Who the heII is John Taylor anyway? Who cares. Bloodied canefan does.

Not after they get put on probation.

Got your pantys in A wad kehoe. Your mom wants hers back by the way

The Truth?

The truth is that your oline depth is pathetic
Your coach is a fumbling idiot
Your QB is a frail beaten down INT machine
Your LB's are MIA...all 49 of em
Your president doesnt care one iota about "ships"
Your conference has kicked you around since the day you mistakenly joined it
Your QB depth chart is something that the likes of John Taylor have NEVER ever looked at
Your recruiting class is getting smoke in the state

Thats the TRUTH nimrod. Why don't you bring in one of those JUCO QBs U chumps are always dreaming of....

Hey Kehoe, You might want to call urban and see if he will "front" you some prozac before you blow A gasket.

NEWSFLASH: JOHN TAYLOR has said UM COULD BE a "riser."

BRING ON THE SHIPS MAN.....BRING EM ON


silly canefan latching on to some "round-up' hack.

Now U keep believing and google searching more of those in-depth round ups. I'm certain oddsmakers will weigh JOHN TAYLORS views..

Just got this off the internet:

Pete Carroll just got fired.

Your too easy kehoe. Now hurry along before mommy makes bail and catches you on the computer again.

This just in ...

Charlie Weis to be named Head Coach at USC ...

mom this..mom that


You're out of gas AGAIN chump...AAA roadside is getting pissed.

CHECKMATE LOSER

By the way that picture of your mom is smokin. In A Gainsville waffle house kind of way.

Urban Meyer Vacation Fishing Update :

One other thing envious loser

The big boys are about to fall....UM NOWHERE IN SIGHT.

Randy's class is a cruel joke

breaking news...


Duh U Gotz it Swag back !

I have no idea what that is, but they say it's back so they're a RISER !!!

Swagger? Hahahahahaha! Just because a guy shaves a design in his head and goes jumping around after throwing a TD does not equal swagger. One thing Cane's fans should really be worried about is that these recent recruiting classes, especially this year, is how important they will be when UF and UM play in 2012. That little Kirby Cold Cut is actually helping us more than he would ever know.

We don't execute scUM till 2013. They'll have an entirely different staff by then and still be claiming they are young and on the rise.

Shalaka-laka doesn't care jack squat about pigskin...

GREAT BREAKING NEWS CANE TARDS !!!

Not that you had any to begin with but now all your credibility is gone. Hey at least you still have japicky, noodle arm, blah, blah, blah. DOOSHBAG!!!!!

Hey kehoe I know your around. Been hot and heavy on shandels since 4:00 am. You have got to be the biggest F-ing loser I have ever seen in my life. You need serious help dude.
