UF recruit Lyden Trail reacts to news of Florida Gators defensive coordinator George Edwards leaving for Buffalo Bills

GAINESVILLE -- George Edwards we hardly knew you!

The Gators' new defensive coordinator is now the Gators' old defensive coordinator. Edwards was hired by the Buffalo Bills on Thursday, one day after Florida hauled in the nation's top recruiting class. Gator Clause returns from covering the Super Bowl and, well, wouldn't you know, more crazy news for the Gators! Say this for covering Urban Meyer's team: it's never dull!

UF's new recruiting class is chalked full of defensive studs. Wonder what those guys are thinking today? At least one Gator recruit isn't worried about it. Miami Booker T. Washington defensive end said on Thursday that he wasn't surprised by the news. Edwards, a former position coach with Miami Dolphins, was hired on Jan. 7, the day of the BCS national championship.

"He didn't seem like he fit the Florida Gators mold anyway, to tell you the truth," Trail said. "He wasn't as intense as the other coaches, I guess because he was still getting used to everything. He's probably doing what's best for his family, so you can't fault him for that."

Trail said "as long as his position coach doesn't leave" he's content with whomever Meyer hires as the new defensive coordinator. Trail's position coach, Dan McCarney, is an obvious candidate to replace Edwards but McCarney said in the week leading up to the Sugar Bowl that he wasn't interested in being the Gators' defensive coordinator. Now that recruiting is over, expect the Gators to have plenty of options.

"Florida is the best team in the country and they just got the No.1 recruiting class," Trail said. "We're not going to have any problems finding a good defensive coordinator."

Love this kid! He seems to say the right things at the right time. Its like he has read every positive thinking book on the shelf.

I agree I don't think Edwards fit the Gator family. Best wishes to Charlie Strong but only if he had his hands on these new defensive players

Trail make an excellent point regarding the amassed talent and the perceived diffculty in finding a replacement for Edwards. Shouldn't be a problem.

However - weren't Heater and Edwards co-D coordinators?

And he's armed and flashes gang signs!! He's a renaissance man!

This blog should be called as the gaytors turn. What everyone is missing in all this is urby stated he is also starting his "Indefinite" leave of absence and addazio would hire the new D coordinator.


I almost forgot to mention. Congrats on the 6'7 220 pound gang banger. He should fit right in. If he stands sideways at the line of scrimmage the tackle wont even know he's there. Talk about getting A free shot at the QB!

How many gators are playing in the superbowl?LOL U already know....

Does anyone at the swamp know what integrity is?

I hear there is a new ad for the superbowl that is pro-abortion usingthe example of inbreeding and the fans at the university of florida...

"He didn't seem like he fit the Florida Gators mold anyway, to tell you the truth," Trail said. "He wasn't as intense as the other coaches, I guess because he was still getting used to everything.

this is hilarious.....this big mouth has not played one snap in college, and is going to run his mouth? sounds like another matt "missed a block" patchan on your team...with that big mouth of his, maybe he will share a block with __________ (fill in the blank)

shoot! With the class Florida just signed even Shannon could be the DC and win a championship.

You shouldn't be surprised. Most gators are "know-it-all" motormouths.

Says the Cane fan who comments more than anyone on EVERY gator blog, What a HYPOCRITE!!!!!!!!

I don't think Edwards was around long enough to pass any judgement on him or for him to make any mark on the Florida program one way or the other. I haven't really heard recruits talk about him that much, mainly about Meyer and Adazzio and McCarney so I don't think he was that big of a factor in recruiting anyway. Sounds like he's an NFL guy and is just taking an advancement opportunity there.

Congratulations are in order to the Lizard nation for what looks to be a very fine batch of new criminals heading to gaysville....

your tootie fruty coach must be very happy..


I'll tell you what Canes fans...if you ever cared about your beloved Randy Shannon than you would let him go and we can hire him as our special teams coach and dade recruiter...that way he at least get a shot at coaching some winners.

Do you all understand that UF is going into their Spring Game with an OC that U wanted to fire, and he could still easily end up as your HC?

Has it sunk in that your team does not have a DC? The fact remains that UF will now have to select a DC from a pool of candidates that they have already decided were unqualified for one reason or another.

Does UF have a DC "dart board" in Meyers office?

As much as I hate UF, I'll take the job if it's still available by the Spring Game!

Go 'canes!

Lynden Trail is a true Gator, 100%. This kid has to get some credit for keeping the recruits committed throughout all the Urban Meyer drama. I love Trail already! Edwards didn't even stay long enough to unpack. What the heck was that all about? At least now we can get a Defensive Coordinator calmly, without having to worry about recruiting. All these UM fans that post here are beyond pathetic. You guys should be worried about your garbage recruiting class that all the experts are ridiculing. Miami is Gator Country baby! Trail, Dunbar, Kitchens, and the Ransom Everglades Linebacker... this is just the beginning. Not only do you have the Gators and everybody else picking the finest out of your backyard, even FIU and USF are doing it. Keep talking about your 5 national championships and your Pro Bowlers... it's going to be a long time before the U does anything else noteworthy. UM fans = obsessing over Gator Nation 24 / 7. P.S. When the U plays UF at that crappy change-the-name-every-year stadium you call your home in 2013, which team do you think will have the home field advantage? Miami = Gator Country, beyatches!

rico swave u wish...the lawyer in ocala better come correct with bailbonds to deal with the U in 2013 vs the gaytors....we'll be ready, will U?

When UM loses coordinators..... YADA YADA YADA

When UF loses coordinators.... *crickets*

When UM players talk smack ..... WAH WAH WAH

WHen UF players talk smack .... TRUE GATOR


Definitions of HYPOCRITE on the Web:

A person who professes beliefs and opinions that he or she does not hold in order to conceal his or her real feelings or motives.

Sentence: Damn Trail is talking mad junk. I'm sure he embraced Edwards at first, but now he sounds like a true hypocrite.

Brock Berlin laughs at U Rico!

UF's football "history" is a joke!

Congress wants to change the name of your 'ship from National Champion to BCS Champion because there were other, more deserving teams that have every right to make the same claims UF does!

All U have to do is go undefeated, what is the GD issue with that? It can't be the SEC schedule, because Alabama just did it (again!) with a much tougher SEC schedule! What is the problem?

When do you think UF will stand with UM and FSU at the "undefeated" table?

Go 'canes!

Quick question...

If USF goes undefeated and wins a UNANIMOUS NC before UF does, will UF be kicked out of "The Big Three Club"?

Go 'canes!

UF is like the Enron Corp. of college football, all smoke and mirrors!

Go 'canes!

The misfires are gaining frequency. The ship in the swamp could explode at any moment now.

Hey guys, leave these canes dummies alone. Posting here is thereapy for them. Just like the Haitians are our brothers (who we help when in desperate need), so too our canes brothers need our thoughts and prayers as their program fades into sad mediocrity.

They are the Pam Anderson of football -- used to be hot, now just a sad, desperate shell of its former self.

We pray for you canes!

Are the Cane'nts even relevant any more???
2013 mmm #1 recruiting classes vs ham and eggers.lol


IRRRRELEVANT has-beens

Hey Sarasota, I guess that means the Canes only have 3 titles, since 2 came with one loss??? What an IDIOT!!!

Hey, I feel sorry for these Canes fans on here. All they got is the past. Nothing sadder than being a "has-been" and not being able to let go of the past. Like Springsteens song "Glory Days" all they have to talk about is how they "used" to be good. They watch old replays and documentaries and brag about swagger that they haven't had for years. Now all they can do is wallow in their rediculous obcession of UF and express their Gator envy day after day on these blogs. And of course, watch replays of 20 years ago.Truly sad.

Man, listen to these bitter Cane fans. I would say something but in dealing with Cane fans any and all communication is simply going to revert to: "We've won 5 NC, we put the most players in the league & we're the 'U". Funny thing is, those mantras are ringing pretty hollow these days considering you can't even win an ACC Championship, bwahhhhhh!

I guess in Canesville perception = reality. If I'm not mistaken Alabama is the #1 team in the country and the #1 recruiting class title is preliminary. We'll find out in a couple years how all these top flight recruits pan out. Remember these guys are going to live in rural central Florida which means at least a third of them will end up in jail at some point in there college career. So much for the staff stability argument.

Sarasota my man...hows mom and the basement.

Question genius - what about da U's split title? Hook a brutha up with an explanation.

Also, if USF goes undefeated it means they beat da U so with that being said, 8-5 is about what your record will be but you gots 11 probowlers.

Meatloaf lunch, Sarasota?...we are waiting for the explanation of the split title with Washington?

Nice try "D" bags.

Mom's meatloaf was the best.

Yes Miami split a NC with Washington in '91, and Yes, if USF goes undefeated anytime soon they would have beaten the Canes which in essence makes UM the 4th team in the state as they are scheduled to play several times over the next year.

Yes Miami cant get recruits any more, yes Michael Irvin is a good role model,and yes I am a douche. And finally yes, please extend Randyas he fills that stands with fans and inspires confidence with da u's fan base.

Go 'canes!

RATS JUMPING SHIP>>THEY LIED TO THE RECRUITS!

Tommie Robinson heads to Arizona Cardinals

Running backs coach Tommie Robinson has been hired by the Arizona Cardinals.

Robinson, who was at UM for three seasons, will hold the same position in Arizona. He is the second Hurricanes assistant to leave this year. Last month, defensive line coach Clint Hurtt left for Louisville.

Go 'canes!

Haha but I am confused.

Sarasota,
UM's football "present" is a JOKE!!!
