    That jives with this report, which helps bring clarity to what's been going on behind the scenes.

    Contrary to the notion that Stricklin was dawdling away precious time with Kelly, we find out he was chasing both Kelly and Frost at the same time. It also calls into question in my mind whether Kelly was always the #1 target, but rather that Frost was likely the initial target until Kelly agreed to meet with the Florida delegation in New Hampshire -- a meeting described by Kelly as surprisingly persuasive -- and Frost declined to follow up.

      Again though, who is it that we would be waiting for worth that risk?

      Prescott was the #20 dual QB in the nation. What makes you say that nobody wanted him? For comparison, Jake Allen was the #23 pro-style last year. Are you saying that we recruited a cheerleader that nobody else wanted.

      Sorry I'm not chill enough, but it's this embarrassing making stuff up to justify why UF wasted my money that annoys me so much.

      No one recruit at oregon either, right? Except when a good recruiter goes there. Where are they ranked now? If you ever met mullen you'd understand within 5 minutes why he's not a very good recruiter.

      So he turned the 20th ranked, dual threat QB into the NFL rookie of the year and you are nit picking.

        ... me too, I always eat just before crossing their state line. What happens in Mississippi stays in Mississippi.

        ... yeah, it's the subjects of fake news you can't believe.

        ... as if GatChat wasn't in charge of that.

        I thought I'd go back and look at some of the experts. Let's see what they had to say about Dabo:

            Good lord you are a broken record.

            http://www.gatorchatter.com/search/3717733/?q=gutless&o=date&c[user][0]=181

            *****ing and whining all the time like a little girl doesn't take guts.

            I'm realistic. I think Mullen is a 50/50 hire. I have no idea how it will turn out. You can make a list of 10 good things or 10 bad things depending on the view you are trying to spin.

              I don't recall any Swamp Donkeys in my past, but I've had a few drunken blackouts in my past so anything is possible.

                I like how even the most vociferous about our hire has calmed down some. Like Cover said, we didnt get a cover boy but we got someone with real upside and potential. I know I know, UF should not have to hire POTENTIAL. We did hire the guy that was a big part of two of our national titles. He is good with QBs and GOD KNOWS we need that in spades. Someone said they were 48 and did not have the patience or time to wait for another big winner.............:lmao:.................Dan knew the jimmies and joes that would come to Starkville would never match up with those in bama unless there was a warp in the space/time continuum. At Fla the ability to get that talent is there and always has been. As always I'm excited about the future. Optimism is imprinted on my brain. I get it from seeing so many smiling small faces all the time. You might call it "ignorance is bliss".......I call it perspective, hope and faith FOR F....L...O....R.....I.....D......A.........

                    I'm not sure if joining my board and then going out of your way to embarrass me is a good approach for you.

                      They have the same agent. Of course they "compared notes".

                        For those not in favor of Mullen's hiring do you think that Mullen believes 8--10 wins a year without championships will be acceptable at Florida? Do you believe that Mullen is aware (or not) that being paid like one of the top 5 coaches in the country comes with expectation to win titles? Or is he thinking that his relationship with Stricklin provides cover and he'll be ok as long as the Gators are more competitive than previous years?
