    The correct hire would be to hire GATORCHATTER to oversee the search and name the coach. That would be the RIGHT hire!!!!!!:owned:

    And if I can speak for OX, we would do it Pro Bono

        I offer my services free of charge. First order of business is to literally buy a ham sammich costume, and have a random person off the street wear it on the sideline, and be the coach on gameday for the rest of the year. I guarantee ham sammich will do a better job.

          The number of buyer's will be unprecedented, just in SEC, Probably, ATM, UT, Barn, Arky, UF, Ole Piss, ATM will have deep pockets. Then the cannibalization will start, Mullens gone from State will open that spot.

            I honestly thought there was no way he’d be fired this year.

            Glad I was wrong! Go Gators!

              For some reason, I have a fair amount of pity for Mac compared to the chump firing (absolutely none in 2014). Not saying Mac needed “one more year.” I think it’s the right call based on mounds of stats and the eye test.

              I guess I’m just baffled at the odd chain of events that led to Mac’s undoing (a considerable amount of his own doing). Whereas with chump, the guy has an incredible amount of stubborn arrogance that inspired more anger in me than any other UF coach dating back to dickey (my early years).

              Sorry to be a wet blanket, but those are my thoughts. Maybe I’m getting soft now that I’m eligible for AARP membership.

                I wish I could LOVE this post.

                I cannot stand social media. The amount of stupid posts and people on there about who to hire is mindboggling.

                But here, it seems like the majority of us are in agreement.

                Are we more negative here?

                Or are we just more intelligent and realistic?

                This is why this is my TOP place for all things Gator on the internet. I came here only over a year ago from GSMB.

                Thanks for being a family I can turn to at anytime.

                Even when I rant on about my disgust for notre dame.

                Go Gators

                  UF , UT, Ole Missy 100%. I also think A&M but not 100% sure, not sure about Barn. I could see Arky being soft and keeping Bert. And Cowbell yes, when some idiots take Cousin Eddie.

                    Mac quit on this team. He told his agent to start looking for a landing spot before the first game. Then he threw all of Gator Nation under the bus with the death threat BS.
                    Fck him and all he stands for!

                      The team quit on him, in November 2015. They weren't buying his BS either.

                            Wow! If this is true, then yeah, screw him. That's disappointing. Yet another coach I'll be rooting against big time. Sigh...

                            you should mod the thread title so people know immediately is it official. some don't read long threads.

                            Lots of hands will be in this cookie jar as to who the next coach will be, but ultimately he will be at the forefront of the result
