    Just heard this news while I was on my way home and think it kind of surprising. Immediately the first name that came to my mind was Mario Cristobal, for obvious reasons, but I see someone who is tuned in with scrotUM beat me to it. I do not see Diaz as a legitimate option but who knows. But it appears that when Uncle Luke talks, people listen, just like the old EF Hutton ads. Apparently Richt used a line from the movie 48 HRS. "Luther, are you angry with me"? and apparently Luther said "yes" and Richt hit the highway!

    I was just saying this in the recruiting thread. I don't think they'll make any back-out provisions for players. I just think the whole early signing experiment may come to an end if these situations keep happening. Could be a similar situation in Ann Arbor if JH takes the NYJ job. Lots of players that won't attend a single practice with the coaching staff they committed to. No way that's allowed to continue, imo.

        Someone should send Nesta Silvera a Chucky Doll with Mark Richt’s face on it

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

            I'm with Gatorgrad, I don't want Miami to somehow back into a decent coach. Although, Uncle Luke may have just hurt the case more than some would believe. UF gets crap for some of their big boosters, but you never see Stumpy Harris on Twitter doing what Campbell did the other day.

              Already expressed, but: @realbsikes: The crazy thing about the Right news is that they just watched Manny Diaz waltz out the door for a HC job. Seems like he would’ve been the natural choice as Richt’s successor. Maybe he still is, but it’s least a lot more complicated now.

                I would actually guess he didn't know, bc I don't think he would know and not tell Diaz and I'm not sure if Diaz leaves if he knew. Def a d!ck move like you say if he did know though.

                Unfortunately, not much we can poach unless the ncaa rips up early signings, bc I think their entire class other than a kicker from Ca is signed. The benefit will be 2020 kids, bc they already have 5 4* that are all from FL. That includes the state's #1 TE, #4 WR, #2 (from IMG) & 3 SDE (we have #1), and #1 WDE. fsu sucking and a coaching change at um is a perfect storm for us to take back the state. I hope all but a few studs in next year's class are from FL just to start the culture change back.

                    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.

                        I hate to see him go. But Lane Kiffen was made for that chaos. He’ll fit right in.

                            Or perhaps continue, as it seems they have been in chaos most of the year.

                              I don't think that Christobal is coming. He has it made at Oregon, great facilities, all the money in the world, California to recruit from and occasionally dip into Florida.
