    The problem is he’s not locking Mullen up at current market value, though. If Mullen gets a new contract with more money in June 2020 let’s say and then he wins the SEC this coming season, he’ll promptly get a brand new contract with even more money & more years (from a higher baseline than his original deal) to replace the June 2020 contract. If he falls flat on his face what does it matter...he just got a new deal.

    The solution is to not renegotiate just yet. If Mullen doesn’t like it, his only recourse is to leave and he’d do that anyway, contract issues aside, if he really wanted to go elsewhere. His other option is to win something under his current deal and then get a deserved raise.

    Bottom line is the coaches will keep getting overly inflated deals so long as administrators make stupid decisions.

      Given our recent history of rewarding coaches for being “pretty good “ in football and now basketball, nothing should surprise me as UF athletics appears to be in a never ending pursuit of mediocrity.

      Does anyone remember back in the day when UF demanded excellence or did I dream about this?

        Dead. Long gone.

        We will never do anything but occasionally "compete".

        Next year they will spend a few more dollars than last. Hire one or two more staff. But not what we need. Not what it would take to help offset Mullinz weaknesses.

        No one in the AD even thinks there is a problem as they sure as fvkk are keeping the 140 mil a year to themselves. The only thing we will ever have that is world class is an athletics department admin budget.

          As little as I think of Stricklin in contract negotiations, I’m more than very confident he’s not going to write a pair of contracts in a 12-month sequence.

          That's such a low threshold.

            in all of the UF football history, was it about a decade of us demanding excellence? Or has it always been demanded and only received for just about a decade?

              No, we only started demanding excellence in 1990. We were just happy to fill the roster up till then.

              It is sad, but that's what we are again and I see no interest in being elite.

              Just try not to go 4-8 (or similar in basketball) and you're here for life.

                We started demanding excellence the day the sleeping giant awoke and hired Charlie Pell. Pell delivered using tactics long used by SEC powers and got burned for it. His lasting legacy was motivating and organizing a powerful Booster system.

                That system marshaled wealth to create a resilient program, and enabled the post-probation resurrection to commence immediately at the time SOS was hired. Perfect coach at just the right time. But the demand for excellence started in 1979.

                      Oh boy. This has the potential to become his “We’re gonna kick down the door in Atlanta!” comment. Hope 2020 does not end up like 2017 where the only door that got kicked in was Mac’s.

                            I wonder if he's thinking Trask has made a leap of improvement ... and/or that some others will be much improved : Copeland? Lingard? etc.
