    Sad news. That's at least the 2nd football program in the state to shut down in the last 12 months (JU is the other).

      Just read an article that scholarship players can stay and keep their scholarships and that if they leave for another school, they can play immediately ( don't have to sit out a year).

          I bet we can get their RB coach for less than Knox

            West Florida in Pensacola, they won the national championship last year and have only had a program for 5 or so years.

            They got a RB coach that wants to make a lateral move?

              Not sure, but I wouldn't mind hiring the head coach as an analyst. He's been there since the beginning and has two previous head coaching stops. He knows Florida high schools well and could probably - at least - help out w/ recruiting efforts. Lord knows we need it.

                Not too familiar with the program but I hope we can get a couple of their coaches just to give them jobs...I’m sure they can do some OJT with Sklaski and Brewster

                      guys I'm pretty sure we're on a hiring freeze.

                      you guys act like we're Alabama or Ugly and we're just going to poach any talent that's available.

                        Only during St Patrick's Day. I come down from Atlanta and work the street party for Megs.
