    There is some serious smoke going on with the coaching search. There are also coaches that aren't being talked about publicly. I think we have two guys wrapped up already, barring unforeseen circumstances.

    Smoke? I'd say a fog of mist chances.

    I just saw two different reports on twitter...1 said Locksley is headed to the Gators and the other was saying Oregon is expected to sign Cristobal for offense coordinator

    Well I'm not going to sleep until I see the signed contracts. I'm too jacked up on the Clemson win (Bama loss really)!

    Both were crap.
    The Locksley one was a fake account.

    I'm not saying stars don't matter, but a special player or two can help even the playing field

    Bama has no business losing with recruiting classes like that. Major fail by Saban IMO. Yeah he's one of the greatest, but clearly not beyond reproach.

    I agree. His recruiting is one of the things that makes him the best, but when you get the #1 class every year... you are expected to win the title every year

    Yet another reason why you dont read scouts/247. According to them.a huge class of 3 stars is a great class. And yet Tinerc.

    Go back and look at Rivals or do your own review of bluechippers. Clemms Son has been landing a top amount of bluechip playmakers, mostly from Florida, and throwing in their own smaller stash of homegrown 3 stars.

    They also happen to be designed to attack Bammer's weak pass defense. SOS did that too with USCe talent and got the win once. If you can withstand their pass rush, you can pass on Bammer.

    You cant just try to run straight at Bammers strength in the middle and have any success, especially with our roster. But no one else has been able to do it.

    Looks like he's still getting those classes though, so we better have that special player in our class.

    Saw this to and man did it set off a fight on twitter between Gator fans. I will say this it does help when you have an elite 5* QB if you are bringing in lower ranked classes.

    It also helps having that elite qb going up against a true freshman who cant pass the ball to save his life. Whether we realize it or not, this was actually the rebuilding year for bama after last years title. That's what saban has built, a program where rebuilding years end as the runner up to the natty.

    Had Kiffin been there, Bama wins in a landslide. I think it was pretty obvious that Kiffin had a connection with Hurts that Sark did not. Ultimately Saban cut off his nose by cutting Kiffin loose.

    it will be interesting to see if Hurts develops into a watson-esque talent or not. it will go along way in determining their future success

    Just ran across this:

    The Gaddys will visit Florida on January 27. If they are given the green light to commit to the Gators, look for both to flip their commitment once again. Obviously, Florida wants to do their due diligence on if the Gaddys can qualify. Maryland appears to be convinced both brothers can get into school, and that was one reason they were more than willing to take their pledges.

    This would be huge if we can pull him from Auburn.

    Agreed! Looks like there is problems going on between the two so we'll see what happens.

    Any word on Nord getting his pink slip? The longer this man is on our coaching staff the longer we will flail in recruiting. I'm also curious if/when Summers gets his walking papers. This staff has about 3-4 huge dead-weight disasters that need to move on. But I'm not greedy, I'll take Nord and be happy....but much happier if Summers is included. With Summers interviewing w/ Muschamp in the last few weeks there has to be something going on w/ the OL position. We'll see.

    I expect Nord to be let go soon...probably before the end of the week.

    If we get Locksley he'll definitely be gone this week and "IF" what is going around is true Locksley could be announced really soon.

    I read some gossip scoop that Summers may not be coaching OL next year but stay on staff in some kind of support role. I'm sure he'd rather be coaching which is why he interviewed with Mussy... BUT it seems like Mac does intend to improve that position as well.

    I'd be in favor of Summers staying on staff in a support role if possible. The players really like him and it would provide some continuity with staff, players, and recruits. I'd think they'd like to have him around since they know him and are comfortable with him but would also appreciate Mac bringing in the best coach possible for them. It'd be kind of a, "have your cake and eat it situation"...

    I think one really big plus with the coaching searches is that you have some flexibility with Dixon and Skipper. For instance, if the Craig rumor has any legs, you could move Dixon to TE and let Craig coach the WR. Although, the way the WR have played, I would fire Dixon to get Craig.

    Skipper could coach LBs which would allow flexibility for an offensive coach hire like Locksley.

    If we got rid of Nuss, we could have 4 really good upgrades.

    what you didn't like the game plan where he wasn't allowed to throw passes over 10 yards.

    Threw could've run that ball down Clemson's throats with timely passes sprinkled in. Hurts just seemed to be lacking confidence the whole game

    From Zach A's story:

    UF makes the cut for uncommitted lineman
    Caleb Chandler has narrowed his list of offers to three finalists.

    The 3-star offensive tackle from Jefferson, Ga., will officially visit Louisville (Jan. 13), Oklahoma State (Jan. 20) and Florida (Jan. 27) before making his commitment on Jan. 30.

    UF is also scheduled to host Michigan OT commit Kai-Leon Herbert (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.) on that final weekend before signing day.

    The Gators are tying to land at least one more lineman in addition to 4-star commits T.J. Moore (Charlotte, N.C.) and Kadeem Telfort (Miami), who is one of six mid-year enrollees for Florida.

    McElwain officially welcomed Telfort to the program Monday after he cleared admissions.

    Also from same story, about S Devon Hunter:

    The Gators have been targeting Hunter for the past year and he visited UF in the spring and summer. He communicates regularly with coach Jim McElwain and secondary coach Torrian Gray, his primary recruiter.

    “Florida is DBU,” Gray said. “I got a great relationship with coach Gray and coach Mac. They text me all the time and speak highly of me. I can see myself there because they play a lot of young guys. I see Chauncey (Gardner) on the field making plays and doing his thing out there. They say it’s a great opportunity for me to come in there and start. That’s what I love about the school.”

    Hunter is scheduled to visit Florida (Jan. 13), Auburn (Jan. 20) and Alabama (Jan. 27). He plans to reach a decision shortly before National Signing Day on Feb. 1.

    Tough to do with a Freshman QB. Their offense just wasn't great in the playoffs.

    In the bizzarro world that is NCAA rules, players can have unlimited access to quality controls assts but not asst coaches.

    Those guys actually cut film of practices and make corrections, show them game film etc. Its just another coach in all reality. The reality is that for right now, these guys dont make much money. However Bammer hires every fired head coach who is already getting paid by some other school. Eventually there will be some competition for these guys.
