    Said poster who broke the news and came out with this is also a former prominent player apparently. So he definitely has connections right or wrong

        Not to be a jerk, but I’ll believe it when I see it.

        We’ve had so many rumors and “Guaranteed ‘book it’ moments” the last few years when it comes to coaching changes and hires that I’m a little skeptical until it’s official.

          I've heard the same thing from my "connection" at 247/Gatorbait. He said that a buyout has been negotiated and McElwain will likely "step down" (vs. "being fired"). Said Sunday or Monday. I'm not holding my breath, as some of those guys at 247 have been known to be full of sh*t (Franz Beard especially), but these guys do have legit connections. It sure will be interesting around here if that happens....

            It's true. I IM'd Ox w/ the info...but didn't want to start a thread on it (hearsay for now). But some of the writers (that work for 247/Gatorbait) are telling people this "hush-hush" (you know how that goes - I got the info from a friend who has a gator sports radio show that he co-hosts w/ one of the 247 guys). Take it for what it's worth, he even mentioned "now keep in mind this guy is sometimes full of sh*t"...but he's just saying what he's heard. We'll see.

            It might be very likely...I've heard it would happen if we took a dump against USCe but if it's getting pretty obvious that a divorce is needed.

              I asked in the Chat Box, but why not administrative leave at the least? Dude should not be on the side line or having interactions with the team.

              If he's seriously on the verge of being fired, I have to wonder if he wouldn't step down following this weekend or Mizzou(assuming one or both are losses). I can't imagine his ego allowing him to stay on and potentially lose to the guy he replaced.

              Well my hopes are now up. Best case is to beat UGA by some miracle and then have him resign.

                He cannot stay. If he thinks his life is miserable wait until we don’t go to a bowl.
                His wife will convince him it is time to get out of town. When you are the laughing stock of college football, you really don’t want to be in public. Can you imagine him on the sidelines after two more losses? I can’t.

                Could be what butters meant when he said he met with the AD and assistant AD and they are supportive...supportive of the number for him to just walk away?

                In this scenario, who would be the interim coach? Shannon?

                I think he's done and pretty well is over it but sometimes ones ego distorts reality(Muschamp)...As a coach he should know for certain if he's lost the team by about the halfway point in the 3rd quarter on Saturday...If so my guess is he steps down by Monday or at least finalizes an exit strategy for the next loss...Hopefully were spared the Suckfest Farewell Party Part II

                  WOW, reading this has made me feel things in places I have not felt in years. Guess I am not dead yet. Goodbye Butters. Thanx for sealing your own fate so that I did not have to beg for it to happen by a 3rd party who was too blind to see that the quality of product you put on the field is abysmal!!!!!
