      You want insufferable? Wait until the Orange & Blue game when we get a look at this new "vaunted offense." The only thing we'll see going downfield will the the Gator Aide cart hydrating the sideline workers. And trust me, it'll be faster than those clodhppers he's going to recruit.....

        I don't normally hand out face palms like candy. But, some of these posts deserve it.

          I hesitate to do this...but so does Bob.

          I will leave it there and let someone else here do the 2+2

            Keep back tracking.
            Don’t be a pussy, own it.

            You threw out the “average star rating” for Fickell without even recognizing the irony of your post.

            If anything, Fickell has accomplished more with less than Billy.
            Yes, with an obviously easier schedule than the power five schools but , on par with Billy’s schedule.

            Not to mention Cincy took Georgia down to the last play of the game last year and beat Notre Dame at home.

            What is Billy’s signature win?
            Has he competed with Power 5 schools with his 3 star roster and Sun Belt staff?

            Get real

            Fickell may not be our guy, so what?
            Napier isn’t either.

              It's not that anyone is saying Napier would fail if he came to UF, just that it's not clear he is wonder boy. That seems to ruffle a lot of feathers here just as pointing out Dan Mullen had some major question marks hurt a lot of people's feelings.

                Dude...take your own words and heed them. I meerily pointed out that you was negging one guy for a standard and then ignoring it for dreamy soul mate pick. So you own it and stop being a little b!tch. Admit that Fickle can't recruit when you point out that Napier can't recruit. All that other stuff you are talking about is you being triggered because I called you out on your two face BS.

                      Good lord…. Fuch off.
                      Pussy it is then. Noted

                      I never said either could not recruit.
                      Can you fn read?

                      I was clearly alluding to recruiting AGAINST the big boys for big boy talent.
                      A huge different in bringing in 2 and 3 star kids that Appalachian State wants, and competing against Ga for a 5 star.

                      Obviously, Fickell can compete with the big boys without big boy talent. But that’s not the point here.

                      Agsin, probably not our guy but, a better coach and program builder than Billy.
                      Which is the point.

                        Another thing the ready-to-hire-Napier clan face palms if asked is, how much of his success is because of solid assistants, and if those guys would be coming with him? Fair question. The thought of our Administration using that as criteria seemed to annoy some of the great hinkers here, as if that was not immeasurably significant in Taggert's failure at fsu.

                                That's a good one. You and BMF can have a zoom session circle jerk to the rajun cajun roster. Use the list of transfers-in to climax together. Good times ahead.

                                  Agreed.

                                  If Napier had a signature win/upset against a Power 5 team then I'd feel a little warm and fuzzy about him, but considering he doesn't he just comes across as an average coach. At least Urban went to Utah (Power 5) and had two great seasons with a Fiesta Bowl win in final season before taking over for Zook. So he made the jump because he was ready and had proven himself out in Salt Lake City. Napier doesn't have that yet.

                                      What you can say about Napier is his conference record is great. But it's a terrible conference. Really bad. But at least he did not just endure a losing season- mullen was 6-7 the year before UF hired him.

                                      I was glad to learn UF really did not want Mullen. I thought he was Stricklin's boy all along.

                                        Doering was just on a podcast doing an interview and said neither Kiffen or Freeze is likely because Scotty has aversions to their “character issues”.

                                        I’d guess the list looks something like this now:

                                        Napier, Fickell, Campbell, Clausen.

                                        Stoops and Cristobal would be the swing for the fences choices.

                                        Aranda seems to LSU’s focus atm. Napier is their number three.
