    Long-time lurker, first-time poster. For weeks now, starting way back when Mac's departure was but a wish, the members of this board have taken quite an odd approach when it comes to his successor. I've seen a lot of it-has-to-be-this-guy-or-bust approach, with a if-it-is-not-so-and-so-I'll-slit-my-wrists mentality sprinkled in.

    Grow up.

    It's not like there is one savior out there, ready to remind us of the halcyon Fun 'n' Gun days. Stop being so narrow-minded and accept that a number of guys would be great hires. Hell, I can think of at least eight off the top of my head that I'd be thrilled to get. Here's my working list:

    * The current head coach at UCF

    * Oregon's OC from 2013-2015

    * The linebackers coach at Northern Iowa in 2007

    * The 67th selection in the 1998 NFL draft

    * Nebraska's 1997 quarterback

    * The Big 12 Offensive Newcomer of the Year in 1996

    * Ashley's husband

    * The guy who, on Dec. 1, 2015 — the day he was hired — told fans to buckle their seat belts because his new team was going to punch the accelerator.

    With so many options, we're bound to hire a winner.

    Stay Frosty, my friends.

      Very judgmental first post. It's a great way to endear yourself to the membership.

        You realize that was all in jest, right? It was sarcastic. If anything, I was pointing fingers at myself for my current Frost-or-Bust outlook.

        Not judging the GCMB members. Not one bit.

          Is there a reason why you won't sign up?

              Yes, there is, and I won't be saying more about it unless "it becomes unmanageable."

              I'm putting my membership on ice until we hire Frost.

                "Great Scott!" is said by Doc Brown, who was in Back to the Future, which also starred Mr. Strickland, whose name sounds like Stricklin, who is AD of Florida, which is looking for a new coach...

                I think things are coming full circle!

                Allow me to toot my invented word on GatChat it's known as "snarkasm". (see nessessity mother of)

                Possibly reason is reason.

                GatChat's main board's gotta have this stellar Thread Starter.
