    I apparently put more weight on the historic roots. To me, Bama & OU have that and are currently relevant like USC. Ohio State has that too. Texas has all the markers but for most of my life (56 years) seems to be more hat than cattle in terms of winning.

    I bumped UF down a bit based on all the chatter about facilities. I hope that and the winning are about to change for the better.

      I'm down with that. There is a place, maybe 10b for Notre Dame. I don't like saying that but that's in there somewhere. $, recruiting, history and market share

          The aTm authorities, besides wanting to know which assistants Fisher will take from FSU, they also want the names and number of the Tallahasse policemen he's bringing to College Station.??

            He's getting flak over that tweet, as if he stuck his neck out unsolicited and too far.

            I don’t know if true but I read that Sexton asked for 7 million a year for taggart as they see FSU as desperate.

            I think they end up with Pruitt.

              I do too. But some guys on this board said that FSU did not split with Pruitt on Amicable terms.

              That's one mil per win.

                          I was a sophomore at UF that last time FSU underwent a coaching search. The hilarious thing is reading on Twitter all the fans damning the fact there's no announcement yet. I'll bet the majority weren't yet born the last time this happened.

                            Hard to convey to young people how desperately awful F$U was at the time. Someone used to publish a “Bottom 20” and they had led it for years. Just putrid.

                            Saw some articles about them potentially courting Mark Stoops. That might actually make sense.

                            Saw that. For reasons I'm not aware of, there's talk of a push for a minority hire.

                            I worked with Jim in Clearwater in the early '80s.
