      Can't argue with the author. It is incredibly stupid that UF is in this position. They should make Foley pay the $2 million to CSU... and Butters's 7.5 million buyout too... and whatever ridiculous amount they are paying Muschamp's buyout. Ironic how a known penny pincher wasted millions of dollars while trying to save money.

        Can't see it but I have trouble believing it will be anymore stupid than the rest of the things Fooley did.

          Have to disagree here on the stupidest game ever played. That crown goes to UF vs. Georgia Southern. That will always rank the highest and most galling for me...

            "How much is a man worth?

            CSU answered “$7 million.” To the University of Florida, Jim McElwain was valued at $5 million — that was, of course, before the school paid an additional $7.5 million to have nothing to do with him last October. But prior to him having seemingly fabricated death threats and striking an unfortunate resemblance to a naked man posing on top of a dead shark, McElwain was the hottest coach on the college market."

              That picture Foley wanted with him in the house with Mac like he was getting a real good coach coming here says it all. "Jim is going to bring the offensive punch back to Gainesville."

              By now there should be a #sharktoo movement.
              There's by now ample evidence the shark was caught with chum-bait not held together by cheese-oats binder but by peanut butter.

                      I would agree...unless we lose to CSU this weekend.

                        GS loss is worse than CS.

                        Then Stricknine follows it up by hiring ANOTHER guy who puts 100th ranked offenses on the field.

                        Yeah....

                        It's ok bc he will have better athletes here I'm told and he knows how to use them.

                          Let's face it. Jeremy Foley was "football stupid." The CSU game is just another vestige of his dysfunction, and is why our entire football program is in a deep, dark pit dug by one stupid Foley decision after another.

                            If Foley was an actual human, he would have buyer's remorse. Unfortunately, he is The Avatar for Failure. #Clarabelle #Mischump #UnwashedMullentz. [​IMG]

                              Men lie. Women lie. Numbers don't lie. Yes, this is officially the stupidest game every played.

                              Colorado State ready to collect on 2014 deal for Jim McElwain buyout


                              The Colorado State Rams would like to leave the Swamp with a victory over the Florida Gators on Saturday. Financially, however, they have already won.

                              The Gators will be paying off their $2 million guarantee to the Rams -- the largest single-game payout that any one school has paid to another.

                              The one-off game is a seemingly awkward affair and an expensive reminder of Jim McElwain's success at Colorado State and his failure at Florida .

                              The $2 million single-game guarantee was part of the $7 million buyout negotiated by Florida and McElwain in 2014, when he left CSU to become the new coach for the Gators.

                              And while the Rams are ready to collect, McElwain is no longer around for the game against his former team. Dan Mullen is coaching the Gators now.

                              "We're getting paid $2 million?" Rams coach Mike Bobo said. "That's good."

                              The previous record for a single-game guarantee that any one school has paid to another without getting any compensation in return was $1.7 million, which Ohio State gave Oregon State earlier this season and will be matched in three other games later this season.

                              Just because you must obviously suck at it doesn’t mean you should be a hater.
