    Throwing this out there, if SS doesn’t bring in Chip or Frost, the next coach must have a top 5 Offense next year or SS should be fired. I’m sick of the crap, I’m sick of the “let me show the fans what’s what” coaching search we’ve seen Foley do the past two times and the longer we wait, the longer it looks like we will get. You either get a top 2 coaching target or GTFO. I know there is a section of people that believe Mullen will take us next level, but I think with Mullen we’d maybe win the east and have that “win the east” BS shoved down our throats while being throttled by FSU and whoever yearly. Love how UCLA isn’t playing this cloak and dagger game.

    Hopefully I’m wrong, but like I said, I’m sick of games, make us believe.

      75 yard practice fields and the facility is only 75000 square feet.

      No on campus stadium so that is literally all of their facilities.

      Except for the shortened length of the fields that UCLA practice facility looks pretty fancy.

      UCLA is second fiddle in every measurable way to USC, why would any major coach want to take that on?

        No offense, OX, but that sounds so freakin desperate. We're pitching the tax benefits of moving to Florida. West coast life is a vastly different culture, especially the food and the people. If Kelly doesn't 'like' the South, he should go elsewhere. We're just different.

          The South is different. Is Gainesville the South? It was in 1962, is it still?

          Not trying to turn back the clock, just saying you should like the word "y'all" and enjoy fried foods. IMHO Strong is one of the best candidates out there for the UF job. I'd take Strong and Shannon right now. Give us three years, we'll kick your effen teeth in, know what I saying, Ancient?

            Literally the only attractive thing about the UCLA job is the females.If Kelly or any other coach is dumb enough to think that's a better job than Florida then we didn't want him anyway.

            Actually? No. Always tried to have a glimmer of hope though. P.S. I was a big Grier supporter....

            Do we have to pamper your feelings once again? I dont care if it was SOS that was the coach. Grier screwed HIMSELF and his team. NOBODY else to blame. I hope your not still crying yourself to sleep every night. P.S. The university tried TWICE to get his sentence reduced with the NCAA.....thats hardly running someone off......but since you will NEVER heal from this traumatic event, I will try to go easy on you....especially since Bert is gone. Let me know if you need a shoulder....

            Well the last time I checked Bert made your boy Butters squeal like a stuck pig.....BTW Butters lied about getting WG's "sentence" reduced since he had already told him to leave Gville despite reports of him still being with the team...Let me know when you need more facts.....
