    This is a disaster and it is glorious. Miami's defense got exposed against every decent team they played with Diaz in charge. Miami now has to hire someone to fix the offense and do it on a budget because they just paid $4 million to grab a guy who had never coached a down of the school he was going to. Their situation just got so much worse.

        I really thought richt had a few more years in him...

        Shame really.

        If Mario Cristobal bails on the ducks I am going to be sad.

        Kitten would be perfect. They will be on probation in record speed with boosters like Luther Campbell lurking. Can’t wait for the team photo shoots with all the “models” Luther brings to campus.

        If he somehow drags Jalen Hurts to Miami I would be shocked. No way Jalen flushes his reputation down the toilet by going to Miami. He can do much better, even staying at Bama would be a better decision imo. Better coaching, better facilities, etc...

        Anyhow, this is sad news... I was really enjoying the dumpster fire on display in coral gables.

              I don't see that Oregon coach leaving for Miami. I hope he doesn't anyway because he could probably lock that Dade and Broward area down like they used to in the old days.

                His leaving isn't really strange. Going there in the first place, more so..

                    "Despite being down 21, Diaz's halftime speech was not about football, or strategies to get back in the game. Rather, he focused on physics, cosmology and the origin of the universe--doing so entirely with the use of a voice box."

                          I'd put him below both at this point, which is saying A LOT.

                                "To review: millionaire coaches can switch schools when and how they’d like — even twice in one month! — but high school athletes who were pressured into early commitments are tied to their schools."

                                This is not accurate. The coaches have to pay a penalty to break the contract, millions of dollars for elite coaches. In some cases, their new teams will pay the penalty. Some lower tier coaches get trapped by long-term contracts they cannot afford to break. The players can break their contracts. Slavery is not allowed. The price for breaking their contract is sitting out a year.

                                For most hs players, early signing is a plus since they can get the anxiety of recruiting behind them and focus on graduating. If players were allowed to break those contracts, there would be chaos. Players should sign with a school, not a coach. If they aren't sure they should not sign and take their chances a spot will still be open later on.

                                          I'd actually be shocked if any Philadelphia resident cared one bit yesterday, if they even follow close enough to know. Wouldn't be completely surprised if they didn't even know Collins was gone.

                                            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.
