    Something tells me that guys that might have wanted to play for Mullen but didn't because he coached at State just might come to the Gators. There is a reason why they say that UF is in fertile grounds and the right leadership can take advantage of that. Give it time and drop the pessimism. I don't think I have read one humorous or comical post from you yet. Go have a drink or two.

      Mullen is worth a million if he puts his boot in Nuss' and Nord's asses on the way out of town.

        I said I'd rather have a young guy and give him a shot. But its not my call. I'm not defending Dan, I don't like the hire. But there's no point stomping my feet, I saw what happened. We swung and missed, badly and publicly - and Mullen is the consolation prize according to Stricklin. I'm just a realist about what this job is right now, and no amount of "but we're Florida" bravado will change that.

              You think a young up-and-coming coach would have turned us down for 4.5 mil/year? Money and opportunity talks and we have the same we had years ago.

                I've been drinking plenty. I guess it just bothers me that the Gators won't have a great football team for 5+ years now. I worked there from 06-08 so maybe I just remember what it was like more than others. Maybe I also remember all the talk about how bad mullen was as a recruiter during that same period. that's the reason you should doubt him; it has nothing to do with msu. There won't be any humerous posts from me anymore (won't be many posts at all), bc there's no longer anything amusing about Gator football other than the new game of taking a shot every time we complete a pass over 10 yards.

                  I guess that's it then. You're cool with insanely boring football and getting absolutely destroyed by good teams if mullen can't find an NFL caliber QB, bc he'll just 'gameplan around his talent' until we're georgia tech. I bet he didn't pass the ball, bc the competition 'yielded' the run to a team that could only run. That must be it...

                    Why are we celebrating nuss leaving now? He could have helped mullen's passing offense! lol, wrap your head around that one! nuss could have improved an aspect of someone else's offense and we hired that person to be our HC.

                      Coach Dan Mulicous. Delightful Nastiness. In three years GatorNation will be loving them full sh!tters.

                        Mullen wasn’t my first choice. Not even my second but let’s be real guys. Chip Kelly didn’t want to be here. Scott Frost wasn’t coming , if he leaves UCF he is almost certainly going to Nebraska. Who else realistically were we gonna get??


                        Mullen is a guy who has coached in the SEC for awhile now. He has done an honorable job at a university that has never seen success. We have to remember that it’s Miss State. I honestly believe he wants to be here and he can come in here and do well. Think about it. He won 8 consistently at state. Now he’s going to have better facilities, better recruiting, pretty much better everything. Plus a weaker division. He should be able to win 10+ here easily. Personally I’m happy to have a guy back that won two ships as a Gator. IMO, solid B+ hire.

                                I miss 300+ pages of Chip Kelly. Anyone know what he is going to do with all his Ox bucks?

                                    Itraz, you are one of the most knowledgeable posters on the board. It is done now. Chill. Nobody wanted Prescott as a QB. Mullen took a TE and made an NFL QB. Maybe he will do it again.
