    Kirby is a worse Xs and Os coach. But he is a better CEO. Mullen is a better Xs and Os coach than Meyer, but Meyer is light years better CEO. You can get away with being a good coach and schitty CEO for a decade at Mississippi State, they have urg expectations. At this level you have to be a great CEO and a average coach (Dabo) or a good coach and very good CEO (Saban). But to be a good coach and a below average CEO you will middle. Kirby is a good CEO and puts smarter people in positions around him, which our CEO doesnt do.

      He brought Willie Martinez, who will be their DB coach. I'm not positive, but Bell might have been out, bc Heupel isn't going to have a CB coach.

          Was still way more qualified on paper. Bell has been an on-field D1 DB coach at multiple spots (including UF) spanning ~ 5 seasons I think. Montinar had ONE season at USF.

          Hopefully he turns out well, but on paper, Montinar was a joke of a hire.

            I'm Jewish so there are significant reservations, but he's 6'4" 220# and plays ILB in hs bc of athleticism.

              So.... directional schools and Butters.

              Vs. directional school guy who ALMOST got hired as an intern by Bama.

              it just looks like garbage versus garbage to me.

                Yes, but different garbage. It's like meat thats been in the fridge for 5 days and the boss won't let me cook vs brussel sprouts that I forget to throw out before a 5 week road stretch. IYKYK.

                    Feels like a Signing Day decision.

                      Seriously, Campbell seems solid, mostly a pass rusher, but he already has a Clemson and Suckeyes offer.

                      He isn't coming here.

                        So since we’re out, we’ll secretly and strategically support his signing with Clemson, where we can watch Jihaad fight against our rivals in Tallahassee and athens. Then we’ll just have to hope he never turns against us.

                        I was just looking at the Rivals Florida top 25 on Rivals. We have 1 commit. We aren't leading or even trending for any of the rest. If you go down to Top 40 (all the 4 stars), we have 2 commits, and aren't trending for anyone else. EDIT I forgot about Gibbs. We are leading for Gibbs, I hope.

                        I'd like to think we could snag an SDE from Lake Nona, but he is trending UCF and with Malzahn, that may be real. UCF could regularly begin eating our lunch with the second best SEC coach at their helm.

                        About 70% of these top Florida kids don't even have a UF offer and UF recruiter. It's amazing.

                        I guess we are out there scouring Muhssippi, Jorja and NC for leftovers before we return home to raid FAU again.

                        FWIW we are currently sitting at #25 looking up at Muhsippi State, Mizzu and Arky. I guess the 'cruits didn't think much of Mullenz triple faceplant and taking the bowl game off either.

                        If you thought last year was pathetic, you probably want to close your eyes for this one. If something doesn't change drastically this could be the worse than Butter's worst class. Just amazing how far we've fallen and what we will tolerate. The next guy will inherit a roster just as terrible as Butters left.

                        The state of the program is very fuchsing depressing.

                          That is it. We, too long, have tolerated coaching that does not climb for excellence -- not even for the improvements that would let us beat top SEC opponents. We will be advancing nowhere, continuously.

                          Mullen started mailing it in last season when he was arrogant and stupid enough to think the nfl was gonna come calling. It didn't, but by the time he realized it the damage had been done and he doesn't have the interest or desire to get back to zero since at this point that would require even more work than he was already not doing.

                          This program is fuched.
