    I guess I'm just weird, but I find it incredibly weird that we have a thread dedicated to following "other schools" coaching hires. I could see how it would be a big deal if it were a coach we were after and they chose to go to a different school instead, but coaches we aren't involved with in any way? Just weird to me...

    You don't think it's important to know what other schools are doing?

    "Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer."

    I always laugh when I read a "knowledgeable" poster say, "I didn't know he was coaching there!"....and the guy has been at that school for 2 years or something.

    Most fans (of all schools) think that their program is the only one that exists and are surprised that a team like UMass could only be down 10-7 going into the 4th quarter vs. our Mighty Gators. Well, maybe UMass was actually practicing during the off-season?? And maybe they have some decent coaches. If you followed this thread maybe you could pick up on that.

    I think it's a great way, for those that are interested (obviously you aren't), to keep track of what other schools are doing. For example, most everyone on this and other Gator sites accuses every other school of cheating at recruiting. Well, maybe the other school's staff works harder than ours? Maybe they dedicate more money to hiring good recruiters, good support staff, etc. If you've followed this thread, you can easily see that other programs are dedicating resources and human capital to that effort.....and you can see, by the lack of UF mentions (hires), that maybe we're not.

    It's the off-season. If you have an idea for something for us to talk about vs. hearing everyone b*tch about how bad Nuss is, or how yellow McElwain's teeth are then have at it.....

    Not really. The coaches get paid millions to pay attention to all that, not me.

    I'm very aware it's the off-season. :lol:

    I just don't see much value in following hundreds of quality control/film study & assistant staff members at 116 schools not named UF.:dunno: That's the coaches' jobs and they get paid well to do it. I don't. I could see value in it if I were a sports reporter, or pundit, or podcast creator, but not much for the average Joe like myself. Like I said, maybe I'm just weird.

    See, and I wouldn't think twice about something like that. I'd be more surprised by a UF fan actually knowing all that kind of stuff. It's kind of creepy following other programs that closely imo. I mean if you're not a well paid coach or media type that reports on such things, it's just odd to know every staff member on every program if it's not your job to report on it. Or seems odd to me. :dunno:

    ftr, I don't really care if you guys want to talk about it, I just find it odd personally. I mean the chances some dude on Maryland's staff studying game film isn't really all that likely to some day make some kind of major impact at UF considering he's like 1 out of 5000 D1 staff members out there.

    Nav isn't here to talk football or talk about football. Other than to say trust the coaches.

    He is here for his calming influence and to tell us that women are Satan.

    On second thought, it's just the latter.

    Alabama: Personnel assistant JT Summerford has been promoted to assistant director of football operations. Summerford has been at Alabama since 2012.

    With Bob Stoops retiring, how much longer does 65-year-old Nick Saban think he’ll go?

    “As long as I feel good, I love doing it,” he said Thursday. “I’ve been a part of a team since I was nine years old. It scares me to death to figure what it’ll be like when I’m not a part of a team. As long as I’m healthy and can do it, we certainly have every intention of trying to do it. If I felt like I couldn’t do it to a standard I want to do it, then that will be time not to do it. I certainly don’t feel like that’s anytime soon.”

    Has he had any thoughts about when that could come?

    “I don’t think anybody can not have those thoughts, but I want to do it as long as I feel like I can I enjoy being around the players,” he said. “I enjoy trying to create value for them and their futures, whether it’s personal development, seeing them graduate, seeing them develop as players. I think we do it as well at Alabama as anywhere, and I’m proud of that.”

    Lincoln Riley isn’t heading to Oklahoma’s satellite camps. His first order of business is handling the current team.

    “The most important thing here is our players,” he told ESPN. “I've tried to clear out as much (time) as I can. Our coaches are down in Dallas and Houston today at a satellite camp. I made the decision to not go, because I want to be around our guys as much as possible and make sure that they have a clear direction of where we're going -- and that they're good.

    ““I've been around them a lot in the last 12 to 16 hours. That's been really positive, and I'll be sprinkling in staff meetings, recruiting, and all kinds of organizational aspects that you can imagine are taking place right now."

    Bret Bielema admits it’s become more difficult to evaluate high school linemen due to the growth of spread and no-huddle offenses.

    “It’s harder for us,” he said on SportsTalk with Bo Mattingly. “We’ll watch some teams, sure he’s 6-foot-5, 295 pounds and looks like he runs and can bend, but you don’t see him push anybody around. Or he doesn’t use the same concepts or techniques we use.”

    The same trickles up to the NFL.

    “Talking to different league personnel, the quality of O-linemen that are truly demonstrating the things they need to see to get evaluated, to see if they can perform at the next level, is tremendously down,” Belema said. “Very few teams let a franchise quarterback use a left tackle that’s using a butt block or techniques that are not NFL style. Things we do offensively, you put your hands on people, you move them, you double team, you pull, you do different things. The game doesn’t have as much of it.”

    Mark Richt took a little dig at Clemson while accepting a key to the city of Miami, referencing Clemson's new facility.

    “It’s like no other place in America,” Richt said of Miami, per the Palm Beach Post. “Even in recruiting, we can sell things that no one else can sell. They can build all they want. They can have all they want. I mean, there’s schools building slides and playgrounds in their building, just so they can have fun. I said, we’ve got the beach. We don’t have to build some slide to have fun.”

    Oklahoma State: Mike Gundy has signed a new 5-year rollover contract. Gundy will be paid $4.2 million annually, with $125,000 annual increases. Gundy previously earned $3.9 million. He is 104-50 in 12 seasons. The school announced a two-year extension through 2021 for Gundy last summer, but it was never signed, and Gundy said in December they hadn’t yet come to an agreement. Now, they have.

    I keep waiting for announcements about us finally hiring two dozen new QA and recruiting assistants.

    And yet.... just a basketball coach, last year.

    Me too. Like I've said before, I "heard" that in order to keep Drew Hughes they agreed to boost his staff. Well, so far I haven't seen it.

    Scroll down to football, I don't see any new names (that I recall). It's a solid staff, but I'm sure Hughes would like a few more assistants. Not many "analysts" or "quality control" types though:
