      Can we all admit now that the shark pic was probably real?

        I would have to think that if he admitted to covering up criminal activities the University could have tossed his belongings in a box and thrown him out on the street with no buy-out, severance, or otherwise. If @playzwtrux source is reliable, it almost makes the school look, at the least, negligent or, at the worst, conspiratorial. However, most of what McElwain accomplished during his tenure at UF was not positive, so nothing where he was concerned would surprise me. Nor would I be shocked if this was verified and Foley was the conductor.

          I think we've only scratched the surface on the crap that is going to eventually come out. I think things were worse than any of us imagined. Mac is by-far the worst coach I've ever seen walking a sideline. There wasn't anything he didn't fail at.

            For all of foley's good effort in non revenue sports, his final football hire alone completely eclipses those positives. Completely.

            Mac is the worst excuse for a football coach I've ever seen. He makes people like Steve Sarkesian look like models of competence and professionalism. But we still have a coupe in this forum that think hes 1000 times the coach chump is.

            Well, one of them is still employable, the other is getting fat eating pb&js.

              I guarantee you theres back channel discussion about Mac. How can a guy who won two division titles at a SEC school go completely unhired with zero major interviews being leaked? No local sources at any achool brought his name up. That piece of trash made himself completely undesirable. I bet Saban eventually sticks his hand out, palm down, and ol Quiverlips begs for a job at rewinding the game film.

                I find this hard to believe, but whether it's true or not, it is absolutely ridiculous that they paid him any portion of his buyout. A nickel is overpaying that lazy moron.

                  He was begging for Oregon and Nebraska to come calling. I think he really overvalued himself and was surprised that people weren't running to hire him.

                  I believe he really thinks beating the voles and winning the East was a big deal.

                    I would think a coach that resigns would forfeit the negotiating power during the buyout. Firing without cause (apparently, sucking at your job is not considered “cause” in the coaching profession) is what would’ve given mac the full buyout.

                    I recall everyone thought SOS was nuts for walking away from the skins after 2 years and forfeiting all that money instead of waiting to be fired just to grab the guaranteed money. He saw his Fun n Gun wasn’t working in the pros, which satisfied his curiosity, so he moved on. Not many coaches are like that and I think it speaks volumes about the HBC’s personal integrity and respect for the game.

                        He had to have SOME, I agree. However, he may have been one of those people that when they finally cash in with a huge contract, lose any motivation to kick ass at their job. I think he got paid and got lazy.

                            I've known lots of people from out west who just couldn't handle living in the Southeast. The weather, the culture, etc. Most leave.

                            But this stuff with Mac .... This guy at best had major personality deficiencies and some of the weirdness I saw and and have heard about suggests mental/emotional issues that Fooley should be flogged for not spotting or examining more closely and any future influence he thinks he is entitled to around here should be forfeit.

                            Mac is gone; Foley should be too. Now.

                              I'm sorry... I'm glad he is gone, but I just don't believe he tried to resign because he was covering up credit card fraud and the University didn't let him. If he told them that then they could easily fire him with cause. It makes absolutely no sense.

                                This was a familiar sight during his last season. McElwain pacing the sidelines, arms folded, head down, unapproachable. In the end he was totally disengaged. He did not want to be here.

                                    He has zero strengths, other than having a great agent.

                                    It's really astonishing to rise that far with no ability to actually do the job.

                                      Interesting take. I'm not sure Mac purposely tanked as much as his laissez faire approach allowed the program to get out of hand.

                                      Several here noted his subdued demeanor and wondered if something was up. That could be the answer why.
