    We joke about it, but message boards -- and especially THIS message board -- now have to be considered part of the process.

    I almost can't believe I just wrote that, but it's true.

                The answer is I don't give a ****. That's settling. You can see elite ooze from the veins of certain coaches. This is not one of them. It's another Butters / Butch Jones clone to me. If he's 7th on the list then fine. But first? Kill me

                      So you think Frost, with his one good half-season, should be ahead of him? Or Norvell, who has the same thing? Hell, at least Fuente is at a major program doing damage. Two of your three names are FAR more risky hires than a guy who has won at two programs, one of them being a P5 program with garbage talent.

                        Oh, and he beat Arkansas while he was at Toledo. Gene Chizik also won a national title at Auburn.

                        I don't think Frost is risky at all. 100% non risky actually. Even if we suck on d his offense will keep us in games. I'm just saying, 3 out of our last 4 hires were god awful, and if we don't go out there and offer the sure things first, then **** it. What else is there to say? Football will be in another 70 year mediocre tail spin until another prodigal son comes home to dig us out

                          The thing is, Frost has operated in the state of Florida for two seasons. That gives him a big leg up on Campbell.

                              I don’t think Frosts defense would be neglected like some other offensive gurus, on the contrary, he played on the defensive side of the ball in the NFL and has had success coaching defense as well. He IMO is the most well rounded candidate.
