Let me get this out of the way first: Thanks for the opportunity to compose a guest post. Much appreciated. OK, on to business. Let's assume Mac will be gone. Can we puh-lease get a preemptive online petition going in which we let Strickland know that we don't want Mississippi State's coach as Mac's successor? Why would anyone be, ahem, mullin' over Mullen? I'm just sooooooooooo not in the "Mullen for UF Coach" camp, and I never will be. OK, he has a 66-44 record at Mississippi State, which is obviously a tough place to win. But has he done anything incredible? Not really. Even in 2014, when MSU (with Prescott) reached #1 in the polls, the team finished 1-3. And is 66-44 a splashy record? No. And at this point — after the Muschamp and Mac eras — UF needs a splashy hire. It has to be someone who will excite the fan base and put an exciting offense on the field. Does Mullen scream excitement? Not to me. Not at all. When you're looking to hire a new coach, you come up with a list of traits he must possess, right? Well, why should these two "traits" be on any list: 1. He coached at UF (a decade ago) 2. He coaches where our current AD was once AD My reply to both "traits" above: Who effing cares?!?! Any potential successor list the UF administration is putting together shouldn't include people simply because they have connections to the school or people at the school. It should only include people that have traits that lead you believe they would kick ass at the job. And I'm sorry, but Mullen doesn't come close to cutting it, in my humble opinion. And yeah, I get that wish lists are wish lists for a reason, but I still think there are so many guys out there better than Mullen who would bring life to this moribund program. I, for one, wouldn't mind if it got Frost-y in Gainesville soon. Sorry to go on and on (and on). Thanks for letting me vent my anti-Mullen feelings and, of course ... GO GATORS!!!
