      Hill also said Mullen was the HC he talked with the most. Gotta give Dan credit here.

      And with Black you have a future team leader who is already bought in and doing everything to inspire other players.

      Florida suddenly looks like an oasis of calm in the craziness of college ball in this state.

      But we gotta put UK down to keep the show rolling.

          Mullen at today's basketball game:


          “We’re going to give you a football team — I promise you — that you can be proud of when they’re on the field on Saturdays. Our guys are working their tail off right now to live up to what we know the Gators standard is,” Mullen said.

          “And on the football field, that standard is not just SEC but national championships. That’s what we promise we’re going to bring back to you here in The Swamp in Gainesville and put the Gators back on top as the most dominating team in the United States of America.”

                I like Tim, but he's just towing the ESPNSEC company line. To say that Dan Mullen is a culture fit at UF is asinine. He wasnt even a culture fit when meyer was here dragging his ass to titles. He sure as hell isnt a fit with his poor man's excuse for a heinz 57 offense and 2-18 record against ranked teams as an HC.

                  Well it's finally Friday again. Pretty sure I read somewhere on this thread that Kelly would be announced on Friday. Pretty psyched!

                      I’ve asked it before without any real answer and I don’t know the answer. What exactly has this 17 year old done beside tweet like a 17 year old? Is there any history with criminal activity? Drug use? Alcohol abuse? Bad grades? School suspensions? Has he been suspended from his HS team? Has his HS coach stated he is a bad apple? Uncoachable? Lacks effort? Not a team player?

                      I have looked ....although somewhat superficially...and I don’t see anything over the top. I do see a talented 17 year old athlete with an ego. How long is that line? It appears DM is very interested in this kid. I have to believe they have vetted him for all of the above.

                      I think these kids are ridiculous with their social media but it is the world they were raised in. If you think these kids tweets are bad you would go into cardiac arrest if you saw their snaps.

                        I think the use of "withdraw" is in poor taste here.

                          Dino Babers should be on no ones list. He just lost 56-10 and is 4-7. Wtf could possibly be going through your mind to think that’s the answer to fix a decade of mediocrity? It baffles me to no end.

                            It was more than just laziness in recruiting. Mac has some serious interpersonal issues. I have never talked to him, but I know many who have, and most all of them feel there is something "off" about him. I know a few high school coaches who believe the guy has Aspergers or is possibly autistic. One of the craziest stories was from a friend's son, who was being recruited by Mac. I promised my buddy I'd never give specific details about him or his son. He doesn't want to burn any bridges with UF, since he's a high school coach in the state. Here's how the meeting went down:

                            They went to Gainesville for an official visit last year. While eating in a banquet room with the rest of the recruits and their families, etc., Mac walked thru the room with what my buddy believed were GAs, and they didn't stop to speak with anyone their. However as they passed my buddy's table, Mac stopped and whispered something to the GA. Then Mac and his guys kept walking. About 5 minutes later, the GA that Mac whispered to came back into the banquet hall to my buddy's table. He said that Mac wanted to speak to his son one on one in the stairwell outside the banquet room. My buddy's son got up and walked out to meet Mac. The GA stayed at the table blabbing to my buddy about how rare it was for Mac to actually talk to a recruit like that. He actually said that Mac didn't like talking to recruits one on one. The GA made it out like my buddy and his son should feel honored and special because of it. When the kid went into the stairwell to meet Mac, he stuck out his hand to shake Mac's, but Mac just stood there straight as an arrow and looked into his chest, almost like he was looking through the kid. The kid said that Mac never looked him in the eye, and only said this: " _________, we are glad you are here, and we hope you have a good visit."
                            Then Mac walked up the stairs and left. The kid was stunned. When he went back to his table, my buddy was all smiles and stoked about it, until he asked his son how it went. My buddy's son said this: "Dad, I think he is retarded." After explaining how it went down, they got up and left, and never considered the Gators for another moment after.

                            I was stunned when I first heard the story, but it is 100% true.

                              A lot of people are bashing Stricklin, but I think he is the only reason we have a chance with hiring Kelly right now. A lot of Kelly's demands (salary, facilities, etc.) need Board of Trustees and other committees within the UAA approval. I suspect Stricklin is trying to sell these guys in giving Kelly what he wants just as much as he is trying to convince Kelly into coming here.

                              I also don't think Kelly has made up his mind yet. I think he was ready to come to Florida, but then UCLA gave him a really good offer that anyone in their right mind would at least consider. I don't blame Kelly for wanting to think this through before he makes this huge decision, and I hope the higher ups at UF are willing to adjust their end of the bargain so that coaching at UF is too good to pass up on.

                              We'll see what happens, but I still think Kelly will be a Gator.
