    Just make him go watch that video we all saw last night, or was it the night before? It's in one of these threads. Some dude talking about the Oregon vs Stanford game and he shows exactly how Chip Kelly completely outsmarted and kept Harbaugh on his heels and gasping for an answer the entire game. Kelly is an offensive genius, unlike the last guy we hired. Boy were we all fed a load of garbage on that one...

    We haven't seen that kind of in-game coaching since Urby.

    If we're sending a ?cesna, we're picking up Frost for a visit to see Gainesville. If it's Kelly we need a jumbo jet -he's fat. :D

    I know that a figure of 4.5-5 million was floated out there when discussing Frost. This seems to be in line with what UF wanted to pay...

    4.5 million per would put Kelly at ninth in the nation tied with Franklin and Ferentz. FWIW, Dabo is right behind them at 4.4.

    Nevertheless, it's low for a guy of Kelly's stature, and I'm not sure if the holdover NFL pay thinking holds water unless it somehow creates a monetary disincentive (I don't know the contract details). When you're very good at what you do, you want to know you're being paid market value.

    Either way, there's way too much national noise surrounding this developing story for it to be fake. I'm elated to know we're closing in on a huge hire.

    @NickdelaTorreGC: FWIW, according to flight aware, the plane that was scheduled to leave gainesville for Windsor Locks, CT at 2:30 pm is still sitting at Gainesville Regional Airport.

    While I hope it's true, the new updated thread title seems a bit premature to me.:whistle:

    it aint gonna be frost. nebraska is firing riley at the end of the year and they've been talking to him this entire time. as time goes by, i think he's definitely going back to the corn fields.

    we either have to get kelly, or norvell before tennessee does, or we are straight up fvkd
