    So if UF is first in rushing and mid SEC in passing, while winning, playing great defense but recruiting is onl so-so, that would not be ok with you?

    Hey since you are a rocket scientist, UF should just hire you until they find a replacement that is a 100% guaranteed lock. Or, maybe we will just accept the fact that we live in the real world rather than a football fantasy world.

    Are you kidding? What restrictions do you think they put on Mullen? Oh you want to bring your dip**** DC that has made every defense worse than when he got? Sure, and will pay him like the top coordinator in the country. Our AD doesn't make demands or even know what to demand.

      Doesn't take a rocket scientist to know you don't hire a no name from the sunbelt to coach at Florida.

        Well it wouldn’t be possible. You’re not doing this other things with DM/JM level recruiting. So it’s moot.

        THEY throw the ball at Trailerbammer now but McElshark Jr doesnt throw the ball.

        Why you guys think Shark, Mullinz and Napper are going to suddenly become Spurrier, I just dont know.

          Well, there was a better statistical argument for bringing Grantham than there is for bringing Napier's offense. Grantham had a top 10 defense at MSU. Napier's offense is 66th this year as of today.

            Well, you can always hire Mark Stoops. There aren't any guarantees no matter who you hire or from whatever conference they came from. I'm not pulling for him unless and until he is hired. He certainly wasn't in my top 5 or 10 but the more I find out about him the more I have to acknowledge that he understands what it takes to win and he is willing work for it. I am fine with him being a goody two shoes but for guys like you that prefer a coach spend his time at the bar fingering coeds rather than being at home with his wife, that is certainly your prerogative.

                You think these fuchsing tards who have made trash hire after trash hire, dont really understand football at all, and certainly dont know what Florida football is are suddenly competent?

                And DEMANDING a new OC and new offense just because you think so?

                He is what he is. We will get what we see on the UL game tape just like we got Cowbell and 2009 Alabama when we hired it.

                    If fingering coeds, at the bar, and it happened to be after coaching a P5 team to a win, not seeing a problem. I give zero fuchs what coaches do other than winning and losing within the "rules".

                        I will agree with this. An athletic director shouldn’t have to micromanage to the point of telling the head coach not to bring a failed coordinator. If the head coach can’t make that call on his own, then he’s the wrong head coach.

                          So it still looks like we going to hire a guy that can't even win the Sunbelt?

                            It looks like he's got a young staff. Some young guys that you would think would wanna come in here and try to prove themselves as recruiters. We've had way too many "proven" older guys that were on cruise control the last decade. I don't have a problem with bringing in some younger and hungrier guys that still want it.

                              You don't have to understand football to know that Napier needs to hire an OC. All you need is a 7th grade level understanding of numbers and access to college football statistics to know that Napier's offense is not championship level.
