    Yes and a little of the middle finger about the whole "you don't appreciate me enough" issue.

    oh my goodness, FSU is a treasure trove of laughs.

    It is the Charlie Brown of college football.

    If Saban leaves (which I doubt he will) Bama will have the pick of the litter but I hopoe he stays. He's good for the conference and keeps everyone else working to beat him...we're stronger because of him.

    I hope you are stating this in aggregate terms, and not "we" as in the Gators. We're not strong right now.

    The odds are Nick, will play the rumor for more money whether he has a ut off#r or not. If theu think money or generosity will buy his honesty or loyalty. They dont know Nick, but they can ask msu, lsu, or the phins and theyll get the real low down. For us to get excited is crazy, because bama will sell the farm for him

    Yeah . . . let's listen to FineBUM as he once again desperately thrashes about for attention.

    The guy who said he was such close, personal friends with Coach Spurrier that the OBC had called and told him where he would go (pre USCe) but FineBUM just couldn't say because of "confidentiality." LOL!

    I think the guy has mental problems.

    Still, it's fun to watch the Gumps sweat . . . knowing if Saban leaves they've already been to the mountaintop for probably their last time. And it's fun to watch the Girl's College squirm -- those who have enough sense to.

    I'd prefer Saban to leave -- just one less team standing between us and the S.E.C.C. Give us a couple of years and we'll be beating F$U again regularly.

    Saban would be stupid to leave. He's in as good a situation as a coach can be in.

    Problem with Jimbo leaving is the strong likelihood FSU gets a better coach.

    Isn’t that the possiblity every time one leaves? Fisher did get them to the NC, recruited those players and the team is very good. Yes, weak ACC, I know. However, I’ll take the chance on the next coach and new system with Winston leaving after next year. Just saying I’d rather FSU lose Fisher to TX then Bama lose Saban.

    Agree but the last few years the SEC west upstart has gotten his #. Perhaps he'll look for an easier conference to go play in?

    When a coach leaves its usually because they are very good, and someone else wants them, they are leaving on their own terms. Usually the school that loses them wants to keep their coach, rather than taking part in a crap shoot trying to find a replacement.
    My point is Jimbo is not that great, so there is a good possibility they do better.
    If Saban leaves, that opens up the SEC to other schools to grab the SEC, because Bama with Saban dominated. Bama is not going to be as good as they were if he leaves, since Saban is still the best out there.

    I disagree.... Who'd want to step In after Saban leaves? They're in trouble if he leaves just like we were when Spurrier left. They will probably end up giving the job to assistant coach.

    If he leaves they will elevate Kirby Smart.

    That could be a whole new Muschamp situation waiting to happen with an unproven ass't.

    The entire coaching fraternity knows what gump is... what its fanbase is... what the expectations (fantasies) are. You think it was hard (impossible) to replace SOS here, no established coach would go within 100 miles of tuskedloserville for fear they would send a snatch squad after him and force him to coach the gumps. That's a job Belichick wouldn't touch. By NO means can they just have the "pick of the litter".

    Paul is dead. Play his show backwards and you can hear him say so himself.

    I'm not sure how much better a coach at FSU can be than having a 26-2 record over the last two seasons, beating us 3 out of the last 4 games, going undefeated this season, winning two ACC championships (yeah, I know, but still . . . ), ranked #1 in the country, playing for the NC, and having a Heisman winning QB. I've never thought Fisher was much of a game-day coach but he or his present staff recruit well and then seem to develop and properly use the players they sign.
