    It still hasn't moved. I wonder if that was to throw people off and he isn't even up there.

    Somewhat random thoughts on where we might be.

    Whoever it might be I hope and expect that the quality, quantity, and budget for the entire staff has been discussed and agreed upon. We need a superior staff in every way to make this work as we desire.

    I thought that UF aircraft could not be tracked for just such situations, so if you can track a plane it might not be involved in the coaching search.

    I see many questions with Kelly as the choice, but I will still support whichever choice is made unless or until they don't perform. I wanted Mac to succeed, he failed.

    We might know by tomorrow, or maybe not.

    Gotta keep all scenarios in play! Think it would be a win win. Hard to recruit in Nebraska. Kelly has the program clicking, and wants to spread his wings. Frost says I like the warm weather and easy recruiting, and we keep the machine rolling!

    Actually? No. I think he could and would do a great job here. I believe Kelly is a great hire as well. The fact that everything is pointing to Kelly and the fact that most people never thought he would come here makes me think this is all a smoke screen. Personally, I think we win either way. I dont believe the 4.5 mil number though. I think Chip gets over 5 and closer to 6.

    Wonder why anybody hasn't looked at the other aircraft that UF uses. We have had at least two since 2005.

    I wouldn't be mad at a Frost hire, in fact I would be stoked, however I like that Kelly has more experience than Frost, and Kelly is a more proven product and that's what UF need right now IMO . But I really think Frost is going home (to Nebraska).

    Someone else already said it, but it begs repeating. What purpose, other than pissing off the entire fan base, does it do to use a big name like Chip Kelly as a smoke screen for a young unproven up and comer like Frost? It really doesn't make sense. But maybe Stricklin really is a boss at subterfuge and has Frost already inked in...who knows.:dunno:

    This would be a savage move by Stricklin to announce the hire of Chip Kelly on the night of CFP Ranking show.

    Oh the fat man and Crucial start their show by whining about coaching searches. No I don't have the quotes, but the summary basically is this, "don't trust anything anyone else says." They essentially have been beaten on scoops again and sulking it's not Mullen or Strong.

    That is what I was thinking. That is throwing yourself under the bus.
