    He's not going to be lazy. Neither was Chump. But he is bringing a crap offense and he appears to lack the grey matter to develop a dynamic creative offense that is the only pathway to competing for championships in today's game. He also shows poor insight by the fact that he act's as his own OC even though his offenses suck. At least if he was the hardass CEO who recognizes his own limitations so delegates to smarter minds while he focuses on the big picture I would feel more hopeful. As it is, he looks like a Mizzou level hire with a Tennessee level brain which means we struck out again.

      I'm not sure what could be a better judge than 1) if he outrecruits his predecessor and 2) if he outrecruits his division. To more directly answer your question: I care if he outrecruits app st, bc I'm trying to scale everything he does to UF to determine what he'd do here.

        To this point in time, not much at all. But apparently, he's not a lazy, self-enamored little doosh monkey who talks the jive but cant' bring himself to do the real work of building a program.

            Do you honestly think Billy can compete for 4 and 5 star talent against Bama, Ga, Clemson and other power 5 schools?

            Even if we just narrowed it down to Florida.

            Do you honestly equate his “Number 1” recruiting classes in the Sunbelt to what he “could” do here?

              YES.

              I think he develops relationships with high schools and completely busts his ass on the trail. We could also dip into a lot of Louisiana talent with all his connections there.

                You know Sling Blade doesn't seem all that bad anymore after you start seeing names like Campbell, Clausen and Mark Stoops come up multiple times. :lol:

                      I'm kinda on your side (I think) but what your saying makes zero sense. Of course you've gotta compare him to his current peers. If he's dominating any area in his current conference you gotta think he'd do really well in that same area in another conference when he's on the same level as his peers again.

                        everybody wants the next Urban and I get that, but how many top 10./20/30 classes did Urban have at Utah or Bowling Green.

                        This Napier guy could be the next big thing or he could bust, but if he is at least as good as the last guy, he will be a lot more tolerable than that arrogant prick.

                            With the way Stricklin worded his remarks along with the fact that Napier turned down other SEC jobs because the school didnt want to do the things needed to build a program, its THE main thing that makes Napier appealing for the job. It is the tell that the UAA has finally seen the light.

                              Well, If he’s our coach, I sure as hell hope so.
                              I’m sceptical, very much so.

                              He’s a nobody, he has no connections in Florida, has not proven himself capable of winning on a big stage.

                              To me, not worthy.
                              Not even close.

                                You forgot to mention at the end there that he should be assassinated in front of his family.

                                I get a lot of you guys don't like the hire, but the over-the-top hatred has surprised even me.

                                  If given all and I mean ALL the tools from the Administration that Napier would need to compete, it appears that his work ethic is way better than DM. With those things he could be very successful.

                                      There were 2,573 three star players in the 2021 cycle, literally enough to fill 100 classes... exciting that Napier managed to pick up six.

                                        Our community sprung up when the Gatorsports message board was shut down in the summer of 2014. We pride ourselves on offering Gator-biased, yet critical discussion among people of all different backgrounds. We are working every day to make sure our community is the best Gator message board you will find.
