    The phrase done deal means there is no way this is happening.

        Hitt is set to retire next year, so he could be trying to go out with a bang.
        That said, UCF, while having a large number of students, still doesn't have the donor base behind them that schools like UF does. Hell, they are still trying to get their assistants paid decently. A move to a P5 conference could change that though.
        Big 12 seems like their only legitimate option to get into a power 5 conference, however they've taken shots at it before. Honestly, I don't know why the Big 12 hasn't scooped up UCF and USF (perhaps) yet and they still run around with just 10 teams...makes no sense.

            If Kelly is a done deal what's the hold up announcing it? he's not currently coaching so there shouldn't be a problem putting it out there, it would go along way to solidify the recruiting class I would imagine. Not buying it.

              I don't blame Frost for not coming here..The nearly total sh!tstorm we are right now, his brand being high right now, ours a little tarnished. He can afford to wait.

                  NFL and college football are two completely different games.

                      If it is actually true then we should have a new coach very soon, not after the season but in plenty of time to let recruits know and therefore let them make decisions based on knowledge rather than rumor.

                      I doubt it is true and if so he better get a staff full of highly competent and experienced SEC assistants and a great strength coach as well. He will need money for other staffers like Saban has as well.

                      Time will tell, and it might be that Frost wants to stay, after all money is not a motivator for everyone and after you have plenty more is not that attractive.

                      Having a legacy of transforming a program can be quite attractive, after all they are a large school, and perhaps could become one of our states top say four programs or better.

                      If I recall from many moons ago as an insider on another board, Franz and Hollywood Bob both swore Stoops was a done deal to us after Spurrier left. Hope this time he is right here though!

                          According to the interview Ox would actually be proven correct. Kelly was not an option until they contacted him about Frost which lines up with Ox saying he is not an option. Things changed and I, for one, am stoked. Just make it official already!

                          Pete Carroll and Nick Saban were miserable failures in the NFL before returning to college and winning championships. SOS was a miserable failure in the NFL and returned to bring an unprecedented run of success to South Carolina.

                            You still have to negotiate a contract and they aren't going to announce anything until that is signed

                              This is exactly what I was thinking. I just hope the above is closer to the rule than the exception.
