    Matt Campbell. Such fuchsing garbage. People start parroting about how Muschimp, Fuentes, Campbell whomever are "good coaches" and it seems to be impervious to actual facts and performance on the field.

    The run the clock out and keep the game close though.

    If this garbage is on the list, we are fine with 8-4 forever.

      Campbell literally makes me fawking sick.

      That beta speech about "my best me"or wtf ever deserved a kunt punch.

      Law may be optimistic at 8-4.

        Looking to a Napier as a program saver when it seems we’re his second choice at best while everyone waits for Aranda to decide what he wants to do is a testament to how far in the shytter we are as a program in the eyes of others.

        I think Aranda is going to stay at Baylor, Napier will spurn us for LSU, and we end up with a bag of poo.

        UF despite its apparent advantages is not a desirable destination at this time. We’re the ugly girl at the dance.

        It’ll be someone no one here wants and it’ll suck.

          Yup. He'd be a Butch Jones. Just awful.

              Offense wins championships, defense keeps scores close so coaches not trying to win championships don't get fired.

                Actually if you are winning big, you can babble almost whatever coach speak you want. So I would only fire someone for not winning and Campbell is fine for ISU, just probably would not win enough or win stylishly enough for UF.

                  Nope, coaches have been telling you that for generations, because as I said great defense keep games closers saving coaching jobs. You can believe it of course ala Foley and hire Zook, Muschamp and McElwain and you won't get championships but you will rarely get blown out as SOS was by 45-3 at UTn his first year at UF.

                  Did that game create doubt, sure. But it also showed he was trying win the game and so it got out of hand.

                      Your not going to win championships with a poor offense or poor defense and it doesn't matter how GREAT the opposite unit is.

                      A Great defense and crappy offense keeps games close. Does that favor the coach? A Great offense and crappy defense keeps the ADD fans entertained. Does that favor the coach?

                      How about an average unit on one side, a great unit on the other, and Great special teams?

                      We haven't had that combo (not even close) since 2009.

                      I don't see any coaches on the list that will get us there either.

                        Translation: Since no one from UF has reached out to me yet, I’m not going to embarrass myself by slobbering all over the opening. But if someone does, I’m all ears.

                        It certainly helps to see and hear him react rather than read quotes in a tweet. I wouldn’t totally rule him out. Not yet.

                          Has anyone gotten more run as an up-and-comer than Matt Campbell? You can’t download a story about a big opening without seeing his name mentioned as a possible candidate. And yet all he does is consistently underachieve at Iowa State.

                            I'm convinced Napier is really the only available coach that can save our program. We need a lot more than flashy passing numbers. Our Gators are in shambles.

                              If he’s hired, let’s revisit this in two years, because the first one is a throw away pretty much.

                                Part of me thinks he's going to spurn UF to stay at ULL. Ouch.

                                  He's not going to turn down LSU to stay at Baylor. The LSU job is a great one, far better than UF these days.

                                    I work with some big Iowa State fans. They would hate to lose Coach Best Self. But that's because that's all you can expect at Iowa State.

                                          Our community sprung up when the Gatorsports message board was shut down in the summer of 2014. We pride ourselves on offering Gator-biased, yet critical discussion among people of all different backgrounds. We are working every day to make sure our community is the best Gator message board you will find.
