    Thanks. That was pretty much take. I would add that I liked his comments when asked about the Florida fan expectations (a veiled attempt to trash Gator fans). He said all fans in the SEC had high expectations.

      Who would we be landing in a year from now worth destroying the recruiting class and turning us into UT?

      @RocketCityGator ...just saw Kelly on Sportcenter say that we didn't offer him the job! I can't begin to imagine what went on then when we flew the prez and contract speciálist up to see him. Don't think we'd have done that without feeling like we had a deal. As Lenon might have crooned.."Most peculiar, Mama!"

        That's part of the gig. You pretend you didn't offer and they pretend they didn't turn you down. Hell, most of the time you pretend they didn't even interview you.

          There is NO GUARANTEE hire. If not Mullen then who? Please stop *****ing about it. They took the safest road with tons of upside. Kelly showed he isnt interested. Frost is an unknown, maybe a one hit wonder. Norvell, again no guarantees. Taggart, please meh. Strong ok yes but maybe he is not moving. Kiffin, never going to happen. So who is next? You guys remind of the fools that hit the lottery and ***** about the taxes.

            I have to believe that they thought they were close. Had to be the worst job interview in history.

              Helluva way to dance! Bottom line, I believe, was that he might have been "intrigued," but not really interested. Also heard it reported tonight that we gauged Frost's interest and it wasn't sufficient to enter into negotiations, so we moved to Plan C. Too much spy sh!t for me to digest!

                Had Kelly said, "I want that job!" our AD would have immediately bit his own finger off and had Kelly sign with his blood. Kelly didn't want it so we "didn't offer."

                    It's a lie. We were negotiating a contract with language edits going back and forth for 5 days.

                    However, it is preferable for him to tell UCLA they were always his first choice and for us to pretend Cousin Eddie was ours.

                      Honestly man, Kelly needs to lay down on a leather sofa, weekly, and talk it out with a shrink. We dodged a bullet there.

                        No doubt. I have this image of our group walking in to Chip dressed in a kimono with Kabuki make-up on and holding a Chlhuahua. At that moment it became understood that he was a west coast kind of dude.

                              For 6 million a year, Florida fans will have every right to demand results in short order.

                              I can't believe we are paying this dude this much, much less paying him anything.

                                He got passed up for the job twice. He's motivated to show us how wrong we were.

                                Plus, big brother Nick Satan has been giving him annual toilet swirlies. He plans on stacking his cupboards and make a run at the Son-of-a-B!tch.

                                  He isn't a strong recruiter, but there is no doubt in my mind he won't be as bad as Butterteeth.

                                  Unless he leaves us on probation, he really can't make the roster worse.

                                    I think he was already making almost 5 mil, and MSU was ponying up to give him 6

                                    http://bleacherreport.com/articles/...-million-salary-to-remain-with-mississippi-st

                                    So Miss St can afford to pay him 5/6 million, but we can't?
