    Sadly I'm hearing the same about Chip Kelly from a source here in Gainesville. I'm not thrilled about this at all.

    Unless Frost was never offered the job in the first place to decline it, why be upset about Chip being the hire? We need someone to create excitement here but we can't force anyone to take the job. I guess we will all find out what is true soon enough.

    That Kelly may balk over the state of the facilities? Very sad.

    Kelly hasn't coached a college game in 5 years. Kelly has no recruiting ties in Fla. He's also shown an ability to not follow basic rules set be the ncaa. I don't care how great his offenses could be here. I don't want the potential mess he could cause.

    We wouldn't want a mess. Can't risk losing the good thing we got going now.

    Maybe he could at least get that new building built.

    Last I saw, Oregon is doing a hell of a lot better than us. I don't think he burned anything down. Perspective man, they lost what, 1 scholarship?

    The building has already burned to the ground. We need a big time coach to re-build it. Kelly fits the bill.

    you will never know the truth. confidentiality in the process is mandatory or people are hesistant to talk with you. how would UCF fans feel if the answer was "Sure I'll come for 4.5 m but I want xxx" and we take Chip Kelly or whatever, vs if his agent can say "Frost just wanted to stay and build something at UCF."

    It the same as saying Chimp and Butters mutually agreed to leave vs "got fired." Allow them to save some tiny bit of face makes the deals sweeter.

    Just spoke with an old UF roommate. 20 yr Bull Gator. In fact he was honored on the field this year. Well connected. Said the Chip rumor is crap. Admin not even close to inking any deal. They have two high level conversations going with current coaches agents. Just be patient. Its going to be a great hire and will be done with “cautious expedience” his words.

    If it isn't Frost or Kelly it's going to be a disappointment for much of the fan base no matter how great they declare it. Stricklin needs to make Frost or Kelly happen, whatever it takes..

    If it was Kelly, Gruden, Miles, or Stoops,they would have already been hired and in place.

    That is clearly going to be in the eye of the beholder. For example, it could be anyone and the shills and genuflecters are going to fawn all over the hire and the people who were involved and how Fooley left the chain of command in a great place and all the due diligence was done.

    Or it could be that many of us will know the person b/c we watch a lot of college football and not just the final scores and/or records (see Butters, Hee Haw). And we may decide that it stinks out loud or we may say, I like this b/c.............

    I will not form an opinion as to it greatness or Shyyttyyness just based on the fact that it is my Univ. and/or team or b/c some JackA$$ donor says it will be great!!!!

    Nah. It’s been only 2 weeks dude.

    There’s such things as contract negotiations. The fact nothing has been announced means nothing as to if it’s a current coach or one currently unemployed
