      If we have a crappy season this year i think Stricklin needs to go and we need to have some serious changes made up top all around.

      Exactly what is this piece trying to say? It's all over the map with narratives.

            "The ratio of profit to revenue measures how much of the money that comes in is pocketed by the university versus being spent on athletics"


            Yup. All kinds of this.

            And yet the UAA has the fvkking balls to ask for more money and plead poverty.

            "This clearly indicates that either the administration is spending inefficiently, has decided to spend significantly more money on non-football sports or has decided to pocket money that has come in from football rather than spend it on facilities upgrades."


            Yup.... and nothing has changed. Softball and baseball first. You have to be kidding me.

            Time to flush Fooley and all his Lil Fooleys running around the AD.

              You can say stuff like this but it isn’t going to happen. We have to deal with reality. Butters was the worst head coach that has ever walked a sideline and even he was around for nearly 3 years. Mullen and Strickin are going to be around a while.

              You are without question the poster that is farthest out on the ledge. Perhaps you should take some time away before you step off that ledge. As my favorite poster, it hurts me to keep cringing with embarrassment for you.

                I think ultimately he does jump, probably in September when Franks trots on the field.

                I will miss my boy.

                  I wasn't implying that mullen should be fired after year 1. I was saying changes in the AD's office and within the administration. Whoever's running the show needs to go. Something has to change up top. Obviously we're not a very desirable destination for coaches or players anymore

                    Sports fans are fans of entertaining performance. That's what fans support.... rest my case.

                        Well, Im doing my part to not support the program. My buddy called to let me know we were going to the Gator Club meeting in Gville to hear DAN MULLEN speak the 24th of May. It is our 5th grade graduation. My daughter's. I could tell he was terrible disappointed. Probably got drunk as hell after I let him down.

                        Yeah, I read this yesterday and immediately thought that this is not one of Will's best pieces of work. He went in to this bit of analysis with an agenda, which is unlike his other pieces.

                          It's likely NOT going to happen but if I recall correctly I was probably the only poster who wasn't convinced that Mac would be here until 2018-2019 last summer/fall....If we have a catastrophic season which is a possibility things can change in a hurry these days....10 or 15 years ago you never heard of stuff like this but different day and age we live in now. Yes Gator football is currently on a ledge and we either get a foothold over the next year and a half or we could become just another Arky, UT, UK kind of program......

                          We could go winless over the next three seasons and still not be Kentucky.

                            Mac would still be there stinking up the place if he hadn't pulled the "death threats" card. That's the sickening part. I think Stricklin would have continued looking the other way on the demise of the program if Mac hadn't forced his way out.
