    Oh, we're getting something alright....we'll be getting no one, nada, zilch and zippo.....All the while the really good HC's will be sealing deals with any decent assistants that become available.

    So if you're wrong and we do ink some of these decent assistant coaches then you'll agree Mac is a "really good HC?"

    No.......in fact if by some chance he does land anyone decent I worry about his lazy recruiting habits rubbing off on to them.

    Yeah, this is absurd. As has been noted before, this is the Oregon WR coach debacle all over again.

    WTF is it? Is this going to be a case of "well, he made a decision" or some bull**** like that? Whatever happened to attaching a deadline to accept the job and moving on if the prospective new hire hasn't committed by said deadline???

    There is zero reason not to hire Stoutland. He can coach OL or TE. No reason not to go all in on Craig, offer him Co-OC just to get him money. Then go after the LB coach. Get the three if you can.

    Dooley said on his radio show this morning that Mac and Locksley had a meeting down in Tampa last week. That's the first I've heard of it. He better have brought a contract, pen, and a briefcase full of cash with him.

    I don't believe he can either! I do know that the longer this takes the less chance we have so if he's not announced by tonight I'm going ahead and chalking it up as another loss for UF. If we offered "Real Money" this would already be over with but knowing how UF runs $hit nowadays they probably offered Locksley bull$hit $$$ and now he'll end up elsewhere. Hopefully I'm wrong!!!

    Is this based off new intel or gut feeling?

    Did it ever occur to anyone that maybe money isn't actually the issue? I think the reason he has trouble getting quality assistants is the same reason he has trouble getting quality players. Mac's issue isn't money, its Mac. That's it.

    gut feeling as if now. I find it hilarious mac asks so much of the administration to pony up but it doesn't look like he has any idea how ****ty his staff is and needs a face lift as well

    Yea I'm starting to lose hope that we make a splash move the longer this drags on. Can't believe nothing has happened so far.

    It's always bout the money...always! If you offer the right amount you can get whoever you want...period! The Administration at UF operates like we're 3rd tier school and that's why we're always hiring up & comers or has beens. They are a bunch of cheap bastards and everyone knows it!

    Ok, I'll play Mari. Here's a "hypothetical" scenario. Mac is given the big money bag and told he can go after a couple of really good assistants. So now we got ol yeller with a big money bag trying to lure in some big fish. Is ol mac with a big bag really more appealing than ol saban with a big bag, fsu with a big bag, dabo with a big bag, stoops with a big bag, etc. etc.?

    All that happens if we are willing to pay a bunch is that we financially level the playing field with the other big time programs who have good HCs and are winning. So we got all those top dudes offering the same thing as ol McChewin...

    Damn.... Im sold already. :facepalm:

    Our problem is Mac, not money.
