    "Sources in my head" - Frost was first pick but after he indicated his preference for Nebraska talks with Kelly began. An agreement in principle was reached quickly. Kelly had demands and based on our past history wants everything in writing. Kelly is tight with Meyer so he got pretty good intel on the state of facilities. Also Kelly had the best of the best at Oregon and wants the same. Some of those things are difficult to promise - like finishing football all-in-one by fall 2019. And it takes time to vet assistants. But details are slowly being worked out. There still could be a gotcha that kills the deal but so far we are moving forward.

        Hey, they're way more desperate than we are.... last time they were relevant, they trucked us in the 95 Championship. They hungry and rich.

        Pretty obvious that we’d bring back a well rested Mac and that point.

            Too much on the line? Isn't there always too much on the line and yet they hire crap?

            Must be moving at a snails pace, but as long as they're moving forward that's all that matters.

              Frost was never interested from what I heard. UF started looking at Kelly pretty quickly. I do believe they will get this done, but every day it doesn’t happen it get more nervous that it won’t.

                Well, technically, I believe the last time they were relevant was in 2001 when they got trucked by Miami with their sham-of-a-Heisman Crouch - in a game we probably should have been playing in if not for other circumstances.

                I dont think we recover from another “shyt ourselves” hire. Times are way different since Meyer bolted. The baller mentality with me now attitudes make this a must hit. The recruiting dynamics in Fla have leveled. Our storage of “cache” has been depleted.

                Maybe it's the history as a lurker going back to gsmb, or maybe it's my desire to want it to be true, or maybe Ox just doesn't come across as a liar. Whatever the reason, I believe him. Let's announce Chip at halftime!

                  Yeah, sorry, I kind of blackout a little when it comes to remembering that 95 game. I think I have PTSD.

                    That's the exact opposite of what I heard. He was very interested but his price is too steep. He will command (and get) proven coach money.

                    I really believe Kelly is ironing EVERYTHING out with the admin so he can come in with 100% focus and command to jump start and straighten out our train wreck. So yes details matter this time given our history.

                    Guys we are all betting bent outta shape because a guy said ' "could fall through". He even goes on and says " the deal is by no means dead and could still happen". And as far as ESPN turds picking Mullen to Florida, Hell they might have felt wired about picking Kelly being they work with him. Just a though before we all go crazy and drink bleach or something.

                      Forget Frost, for all we know he is a “one hit wonder”. Let him go hump some cornhuskers.
