      It’s the classic “we didn’t want him anyway” response.

        I still wanted Frost. Was a bit disappointed in the Mullen hire, but he's starting to win me over.. if he can pull in some recruits and point that part in the right direction I'll feel a lot better.

        I still fear that he's got some Richtness to him.. someone who will be a very good coach that can't get over the final hurdle.

        Frost took over Nebraska.. which is horrible. I doubt they have as much talent on the roster as we do, and it's in Nebraska. He'll struggle there, where I think he could have worked magic with the talent we have.

          Strickland and crew went up there and that was it. Kelly sat there like the dolt he is when questioned about his recruiting practices. He was never offered the job and at least he was man enough to admit that. Now Taggart on the other hand was never even an after thought but came out like everyone was offering him. Charlie Cheeseburger would be proud.

                There were a few folks who said his recruiting was a big reason to take him. Probably wasn’t a large number of posters, but there was a few.

                Well, he was never offered the job.

                During a major network interview he said UF never offered him the job. Your ignorance is not my problem.

                  I know some of the people (friends of a friend more accurately) who spent days and nights working on the contract and bazillion addendums that coocoo bird requested.

                  You should be smart enough to figure out on your own that UF doesn't take all the assistant ADs, attorneys and the President on a plane trip to New Hampshire just to say hello or scout for a skiing trip.

                  In the narrowest sense, he is probably correct. Mullinz just signed his actual final contract a week ago or so. The initial doc is probably called an Agreement to Enter an Employment Contract or something similar. However, it is moronic to actually believe we didn't "offer" him the job in common parlance. If he had said yes and signed that night, he was flying back to Hoggetowne that night and would have been announced the next day.

                  Thankfully Ox's dream coach didn't say yes.

                    On November 10 Spurrier states our next coach is with his team. On November 20 or thereabout our Admin initiated the smokescreen.
                    Spurrier speculates next coach still with his current team
                    Florida reportedly flies out to meet Chip Kelly as UCLA enters mix for his services
                    In the narrowest sense you are correct except that he could not have accepted the job which was never offered and entertaining CK's addendums means nothing. He was at best a backup. Dream as you will.

                      He was my dream coach when he was actually coaching. He's doing nothing more than stealing money these days.

                            Slick WiLLLLLLLie, though the chub was much more flaccid compared to the ones for Kelly and Frost.

                              And while in miamuh, nicky said he wasn’t heading for bamuh. You can’t believe everything a coach says. And personally, I don’t CARE if he was officially offered or not... and I’m not sure why it’s so important to you. Just saying your “exhibit A” is shaky at best.

                              I dont think he was ever a serious candidate, despite begging for the job. The Twitter Black Caucus is the only ones who considered him a real candidate.
