        There is a 31 page thread on volnation with lots of posts like this one in it:

        The UF job being open at the same time as ours is really bad. The UF job opening before ours is an utter catastrophe.

          What are they worried about? They already have Gruden locked up.

              He also beat Arkansas and Iowa State his last season at Toledo. I’m not saying he is my top pick but I wouldn’t be disappointed if he’s in the mix.

                You have to hand it to those HillRodders, this statement is 100% true. Butch should have been fired during their game with us, when on 1st down and goal from the 1 yd. line, he allowed the QB to throw the ball 40 yds sideways, instead of handing it to Kelly.

                    I hope you've informed your employer and family that the GCMB will be needing your undivided attention over the next few weeks.

                      This is a start. But it's only the first step. I'm not excited ... yet. Not by a long shot.

                      JUST FIRE HIS SORRY FAT ASS and make him go to court to collect. Any sane judge would decree that McButt actually owes UF all that salary he was paid for destroying a program.

                            Wow I thought I was tough to please.. I understand your point, but even an old curmudgeon like me is happy for this reason. Forget about the record or the results, we just fired a coach whose product on a weekly basis is beyond terrible. However, he would never never never never have been fired if he had not been so stupid this past week. We got a gift. Those jock sniffers would never have fired him for a losing record.

                              Curb your enthusiasm fellas. Even if we fire him we still have to hire someone to replace him. We've failed that miserably 3 out of the last 4 times.

                                  I understand. I really do. I've just been so beaten down into submission with the demise of our beloved program. Bad hire after bad hire with Urban Liar checking out before all of that. I just want it to be fun again. It hasn't been fun in so long. Just posting this is making me so sad right now.

                                  Just make the right hire, UF administration. Please give us hope again. It's been too long.
