    Reading this thread, I feel like Paulie when he finds out that the wire Pus was wearing provided the feds evidence on the calling card scam that he wasn’t in on.

      Interesting that most of the Foley :nutswinger:are gone but not this guy. When he's not jerking it to pictures of Foley and the new baseball stadium he still finds time to post.

        I found most amusing the dislikes to Donkey by everyone’s favorite - jhbyrd. He didn’t join until 2018 to come defend Mac. But, he went back and disliked 2014 posts on a thread that was not bumped until yesterday.

            I’m convinced you and jboss are the same person.

                  Don't forget about Foley's interview, where he talks about the Butters hiring.

                          Fair question, glad you guys dug me up from the “forgotten favorites” heap to provide an update. At the time, I was all-in on Foley, due mostly to his long track record of presiding over multiple titles in multiple sports. Even looking back now, his resume’ of accomplishments while at UF is remarkable.

                          Having said that, I was not taking into account some of the things Foley was not doing as AD. I was not as aware as I should have been about the antiquated state of UF facilities. We all recall Foley’s doctrine of not getting into an arms race with other programs over facilities. In hindsight, he should have been leading the arms race; see Clemson, Bama, UGA and others. We’re just now repositioning ourselves to make up for that bad judgment. I also didn’t account for the idea that someone like Scott Stricklin could come in and take the program to an entirely different level. When I was complimenting Foley, I wasn’t imagining Stricklin.

                          I’m still not as unforgiving on Foley’s hires as some others. Muschamp was forgivable, Mac was a total flop, really horrible hire. And I regret ever defending Mac or Foley in that entire situation. However, while Foley blew it with Mac and Muschamp, he can always hold his head high for Meyer and Donovan.

                          Fast forward to now, I’m very pleased with Stricklin, the man hasn’t made a bad move yet in my opinion. Great leader in every facet, Foley’s time came and went, Stricklin is what we needed.

                              Thanks man, good to be back. My mind is blown over some of my five year old takes. Most have stood the test of time, but a few others, maybe not.
