            Here's what's going to happen, and we all freaking know it. People like you will be at the forefront of it.

            Napier is going to hire a OC that doesn't throw 50 times a game and rack up Texas-Tech-style pinball-machine passing numbers, and people are going to start freaking out.

            "He's Muschamp! Eek! Ack!"

            :ohnoez:

            They'll pick apart the new OC, posting up box scores and old YouTube videos that show he had a 3-and-out in the 2nd quarter of a game six years ago. Hand-wringing and pearl-clutching will commence. Then they'll dig up the stats, that he was only ranked #32 in passing in 2017 when we should only ever settle for #1. Some tard will show (with sophisticated charts, graphs, and videos) that the OC's team only threw for 211 yards against X when team Y threw for 242 against the same opponent, making this an outrageous hire. Then more people will pile on, saying they are "saddened" that it's happened yet again. Several will claim they won't watch and are done with UF football forever, like we give a sh!t if they watch or not.

            It will be an orgy of embarrassment for all involved.

            Can't wait.

                For a multitude of reasons, I feel confident Billy Napier will be named the next coach within the next 72 hours. There has already been much hand-wringing and gnashing of teeth over this hire, so I figured we could start a new thread about it. That way we can revisit it in a few years and see who was right and who was wrong.

                This thread is only about Billy Napier, not any other coach. I would highly suggest you do what I did and start reading about Napier - you might find out it's a better choice than you first thought. Everyone wants a "splash" hire, but what I personally wanted was someone who could tear down and build the program back up from the bottom, and someone who would work relentlessly to get it done.

                By all accounts, Napier is a football lunatic in all facets, including recruiting. He's obsessed with football. You aren't going to hear about him going on any vacations. He may have also pulled UF into the 21st century by expanding the staff by leaps and bounds, something I'm sure he's insisted on.

                What the results on the field are remain to be seen, but I think we found a guy that's going to do something we've been insisting on: raze it and build it up the right way.

                So, we've already got upset people making fun of his dialect, his looks, his wife and kids, whatever. Go for it - do what you do. I'm going to give him a chance.

                Discuss.

                  Riley could end up being incredible at USC. I’d have been thrilled to have him if that was the direction we looked. But I’d be lying if I said this move wasn’t up there with some of the shadiest I’ve ever seen. Concentrating his recruiting efforts in Cali, while on OU’s recruiting dime, almost mockingly answering a question about Lsu just hours before, and the fact that he’s denying that this was in the works for a while(saying instead it was just overnight decision) is not a good look. Bordering on RichRod territory. All while not actually winning anything any real consequence and being 0-for in the Playoff despite getting possibly the smoothest handoff in cfb history.

                  He better hope he kills it in LA because right now he has the loyalty of an Urban Meyer with the trophy case and likability of Dan Mullen.

                    Some interesting insight. Napier turned down Mississippi State because they didn't have the resources he wanted. He turned down Auburn because the coach there is controlled by the boosters. He did NOT want the LSU job because there are investigations going on all over that place, including federal crimes that were committed (which may also explain why Riley didn't want it).

                    It's reiterated that Napier wouldn't take the job unless he was promised the resources he needed.

                            Hello fellow Chatterers

                            Am back from Ox's Chatterer Re-education Facility

                            Do not be alarmed facial abrasions are not from beatings just rug burns from carpet squares on facility walls

                            Was eye-opening to watch many many many hours of video of Louisiana Ragin Cajuns world's greatest team

                            [​IMG]

                            Napier is best coach for Gators

                            All those against Napier are counter-Chatter spies from Beta Country

                            Report all anti-Napier posters to Ox

                            All support Napier the perfect coach for our team

                            That is all

                                    You hope you’re wrong? I don’t recall you ever being right. This take is retarded even for you.

                                    Don’t post in this thread again. You are lowering the IQ of everyone.

                                        There's no question the Napier staff is very concerned with not currently having your support.

                                          Whoever is running Napier's Twitter account has gone through 247's state rankings, found each of the top 30-50 (or so) players from each southern state's Twitter account and followed them - regardless of who they are committed to. He's followed HUNDREDS of recruits in the last two days. Dan Mullen, when he was still coach, followed less than 700 people (he's since scrubbed his account and there's less than 300 that he's following now).
