The reason Stricklin is so adamant about not wanting people to believe rumors is that they can also set expectations so high that if the coach everyone is talking about, are wanting and expect doesn't end up happening there's a let down amongst the fan base. Just look how deflated Tennessee gets every time they get some schlub instead of Gruden who they just knew they were going to get.
Face it, if we don't get Frost or Kelly now we're going to feel pretty let down. You don't want your new coach coming in like that.
Yep. Gonna be some upset folks when it’s kiffin or strong
I think it is less likely that it’s an intentional smokescreen, and more likely that it is someone doing their proper due diligence and vetting and exploring multiple options. This is a damn good job, and with a new AD looking to establish himself, whoever takes the job is probably going to get a hell of a package, and so we have the ability to explore multiple options.
You don’t do these things by making a list and starting at #1, and if that doesn’t work out going to #2, etc. You vet a “pool” of top candidates, which a) gives you options, and b) gives you leverage. Swonkey said it above, Frost now knows he’s not the only option.
Exactly, we are not vetting one candidate we are vetting multiple candidates. Finding the best fit, the smoke screen around Kelly is just a big name on the list. There is also rumors of him going to Ta&m or UCLA, why because he is Chip Kelly.
All the smoke out there. I think we will probably know by Monday for sure.
Not really sure why ANYONE in their right mind would ask for or support any situation including Kiffen being hired at Florida. I would never want the scumbag anywhere near Gainesville for any reason.
There is good smoke and bad smoke, all the smoke around Kelly is off of the same handful of tweets by people not connected to the program. if you look at where all the articles are getting their info it all goes back to a handful of tweets.
There is one guy who called Mac as the hire before others did apparently saying its Kelly and that he just has to sign the paperwork. That is what he claims the same people are telling him anyway. I can hope at least.
Mac was the worst keep secret around the UAA when he was hired, for some reason Foley loved him... So being the first to call Mac wasn't that impressive. I'm solid with Kelly, I think it would be a great hire. Just went you look at where everything is stemming from it looks like a lot of people trying to be first to a story, instead of checking if a story is real.
I guess my wording came off wrong, I do not think it was solely the Administration. I think someone picked something up and ran with it, and the admin is just letting it run to keep the scent clean. What really has me scratching my head was the heat that was placed on the potential of Frost. Then it Blew up...big time. The Kelly story blew up big time this week. The one thing that I love is that no matter what our rivals are freaking if we get a big name. It is the talk of all media right now.
Yeah I think the smoke created by both of those candidates is useful for Stricklin in the whole process. I'm sure Stricklin has called more than Frost and Kelly to gain interest, so I wouldn't be surprised if we see smoke from some other candidate as well. My gut says we'd sign Kelly over anyone else in a heartbeat if he's interested. Hopefully we're not the only partner looking to dance...
The Kelly information is via a UCF alum- sponsored troll bank. A friend of mine who is a lawyer told me.
Why settle for baby Kiffin when we can have the real thing.
Well he called it a little before all the stuff popped up everywhere and he also was saying this was basically a done deal except for the signature days ago. We will see I guess.
I'm not ain't Chip, just think we should all pump the brakes until something real happens.
It's a smokescreen all right, neither of these guys will be the coach.
Sure will be! I cant immagine the collective conniption around here if its anyone but Frost or Kelly.
