    Well my wish for someone not polarizing sure hasn’t planned out. On the 24/7 board they’re going nuts and praying this doesn’t fall through. Here I’m not sure the Schianno idea isn’t being kicked around via PMs.

    I also may have just been responsible for giving them the idea though as well.

      We knew exactly what we were getting with Mullen. That’s not the case here.

        Can't we just be happy Mullins is finally gone?

          I’m willing to bet there’s lots of misinformation and misdirection and subterfuge going on. No one knows sheet at this point. It’ll prob be fickell for all we know

              I don’t love nor hate the hire. I think he’s going to work his ass off, the complete opposite of Mullen.

                So I decided to give Napier a chance, decided to do some more digging. At the end of looking at his record, looking at his victories and losses, looking at his offense, I was just very confused. I mean we just fired this guy, why would want to hire his clone? Ru run run punt. Don't give up the big mistake. Win by a point against Last Chance U and hail it as the biggest victory in history.

                Give me a break guys. I know Strychnine was just spouting off AD-speak when talking about our next coach but if this is what means by sustaining a high level of success, put me on suicide watch too. Give me a break fellas.

                  Yeah I agree. I still don’t get the hate at all other than I think he was not expected. If he works out he’s here for a long time. If he doesn’t we’re doing this all again in a few years, and are likely in better shape for the next guy. Players and recruits seem to be intrigued. Supposedly a machine like approach. I’m ok with the hire even if it wouldn’t be my first thought. I think you know what you’re getting with LK and some are just ignoring it. Some of the other names as well.

                  Still think he gets 2022.

                  We’re woke, remember? So we fly straight to the nearest guy white guy named Billy with a southern draw and hire him on the spot.

                    Yup. Pretty much the same dude.

                    Exact same playbook as Mullen circa 2005. So exact I wonder how he got it and learned it. Obviously not a Alabama or Clemson.

                    I think he’s going to kill it on the trail and make sure his staff does as well. Ten bucks he doesn’t go on a single vacation his entire tenure in Gainesville.

                        Are you honestly stupid enough to think this search is still open? It’s done. Even Vegas says so.

                            It’s a possibility. We take the news, dissect it, criticize the hell out of it, and then make a new less than flattering name for him.

                            Kind of our thing.

                              Considering that he chased but couldn’t bag Kelly and settled on Mullen, I’m guessing he settled on a promise with no exchange of goods or services. He’s Robert Hoover; we need Eric Stratton brokering the deal.

                                I prefer smart and hard working, but if forced to choose one, I admit I would choose hard working.
