      You gotta admit it though, at least it would be an entertaining 15 minutes.

        Cristobal comes up some but he seems like a very long shot, he's recruiting well and # 3 in the playoff, He is probably in line for some big $$$ in his new contract. Kiffen and Napier seem to be in the catbird seat. Seroiusly, would anyone pick Kiffen, but he is loved by youthful fans (no explanation).

        Napier at UL seems to be a good recruiter in his conference and only lost 4 games in 3 years. Bowling Green had such a coach in the past, but he lost more games. Unfortunately, recruiting in the SEC is different and Kiffen is not breaking records at ole miss.

        Strick better hope on a good coin toss.

          NGL I'm seeing a lot of Napier to UF smoke. Now is it white Pope smoke, or a smokescreen.....

              It's a well known fact Mullen doesn't have any balls.

                Just spoke to a friend (Bull) and he said Clawson from Wake is on the list. Nobody seems to know why but SS wants to speak with him.

                  Good enough for me. Also wondered if SS would advocate for Schottenheimer.

                    I got a very bad feeling about this search/process.

                      It’s Napier and it’ll happen quickly. He’s the corndogs backup plan, so as soon as they get turned down by Riley they’ll be offering.

                        @BWalkerSEC: Florida currently talking to Billy Napier in Louisiana. Sonny Dykes to TCU, press conference soon.

                        Just posting things directly from my DMs.

                            Pundits on Twitter reporting Napier, Kiffen, and Fickell are the three bigger names UF has reached out to. All three are interested with Napier seeming most inclined. Clausen would seem to be the last resort if one of these three don’t bite.

                            TCU named a new coach.

                            LSU fans seem to be starry eyed for Aranda, but a few are saying they should keep us from poaching Napier.

                              Can’t imagine a more uninspiring hire than some nobody from nowheresville. Didn’t we already do that in 2014?

                                Does this Napier guy have a good offensive system? Seems like he's a top candidate just because of all the media hype but I would hope he embraces everything that comes with running a Gators program.

                                  Blackboard Football Broadcast says it’s Napier and it’s a … done deal.

                                  They claim this info comes from same sources that broke the Kiffen to Ole Piss news.
