has had FAR too much turnover thru the past several years. Far more than is normal for any program not in a death spiral.
This instability will lower our ceiling considerably
Your funny dude. 30 wins in three years. Ok.
Why do you guys always throw that out??? Ridiculous come back to the original post. We have had a lot of coaching turnovers regardless of what is in the win/loss column.
Boogity, who cares. There will be the next guy that wants to coach here. I throw it out because we also had other staff guys help us win 30 games. Every staff has turnover if they don't there staff isn't worth a damn.
Well we've been winning and it makes our guys attractive to other schools.

Any post trying to equate our programs unprecedented recent success with a "death spiral" doesn't merit any response imnsho.
When you are winning and developing players this is what happens. No different than players leaving early for the NFL. Turnover does'nt always mean you are doing a bad job, sometimes means the guys you have are that good and other GOOD programs want them. We have a long way to go to be able to compete with Bama, Florida, LSU, etc for the best players and to be able to keep and pay the best coaches.
ok. Give us an example of programs who have lost as many coaches as we have over the last couple of years. Afterall, you say every staff has turnover. We will wait.
Well please tell me what would be considered a "normal" amount of turnovers in coaching staff. Then, you can also tell us how many years, you consider "several" to be. Three, six, eight?
That way, we could see that we've had "FAR too much turnover thru the past several years."
Oh wait, now you're saying "the last couple of years." Is that less than or more than "the last several years."
Bercause it's easier than debating issues on the merits. A noun, a verb and 30 wins in three years.
Spurrier...I appreciate him plenty
In truth Al, what's more important than that last one (30 wins)?
We don't have any more turnover now than we did just prior to those 3 years with 30 wins. Given that, throwing out 30 wins seems like a logical retort. Would you not agree in this instance?
If we had stability prior to those 30 wins, I'd tend to agree. Since we didn't, I still see the same constant I've always seen. Steve Spurrier.
Forearm how about Florida State. You need to take a two week recess from message boards. Dude relax. I will take the 30 wins and hope we get 30 more the next three years. If they leave hire new ones.

In all fairness, you point out Spurrier's first few years in many of your arguments.
Look, when you win, people are going to want to hire your coaches. We have brought in great coaches the past couple of years, and that will continue. Lawing does not count, because it was unavoidable.
