    I hope and expect that at UF we have a standard and our employees will work to meet that standard, not impose their own ideas. We had an idiotic coach that tried that and eventually he was fired for not being a team member and behaving inappropriately (in addition to losing games).

    This new hire will be watched, I hope it will work and if not another change will happen.

    He ran interference for Bo Jackson. He's doing it now for Scott Stricklin. Wonder if it'll go anywhere.

    I can not say in advanced which will work out better. I am disquieted by hiring an AD who was just forced out at another school where there were scandals in various sports, even if he is not the head guy at UF.

      I think it puts us one step closer to having the balls to hire a guy like Bobby Petrino, if that becomes necessary and that's probably going to become necessary.

      I am sorry the two are no where near equal. One if the face of our football team and a major face for the entire program. The other is just an employee, perhaps one that does a lot of good but still just an employee.

      I also doubt it will become necessary or even advisable. If our new coach does not work out there will be other better options at that time, if it ever happens.

      Petrino will be getting pretty old in three years.

      My point is, maybe we are showing a willingness to not be so damn squeaky clean.
      Like going two years without a reciever coach because ours made a mistake, most teams would take them off the trail for a few weeks then it would be business as usual, or if they did decide to fire them, they damn sure wouldn't be afraid to take someone else's coach a few months before the season starts.
      We always seem take the moral highroad to a fault.
