    Another coach that got demoted at Utah. My problem with him is that he admits he struggled to put his uptempo stuff in year 1.

    He got demoted bc Chow, a great offensive mind, wanted to go back home. That's very different than being demoted bc your offense stinks.

    Right he got demoted because his head coach thought he had found somebody better. He struggled implementing uptempo offense in year 1 and ran the ball 3 times in the first half today.

    Calm down, heard from someone who is typically correct about UF football weeks ago that we already have an agreement with the OC we want. And it's not Applewhite or any of this crowd that y'all are freaking out about us "losing out on."

    Then why not name them? Who cares if they are coaching a bowl game, coaches who have taken another job are named as coach somewhere else all the time before the bowl game. Nothing to gain by keeping it quiet. If this was the case they would have been named already.

    The ones who get named prior to their bowl are typically taking a job that is a big promotion. The name I was told would be making a lateral move, that may explain it if true. I don't know for a fact that what I heard is true, and I haven't seen it reported anywhere, but I was told we have an agreement already and are just keeping it quiet.

    It will interesting to see... I watched USC's game today thinking we were almost certainly going to end up with Helton and then heard ESPN say live that he was going to be retained. :oops:

    As AZ stated, nobody expected Lawing to leave USCe. Not every OC is happy in their current role. I’ve got to think we have someone already lined up and I recommend a”Woo Saa” till then. His choice will either make him or brake him next year and I’ll wait patiently. It’s obvious it wasn’t Helton and because it wasn’t, everyone panics. USCw is playing Fresno St. and had weeks to prepare. Anyone thinking they wouldn’t score is drinking to much eggnog.

    And if I speak ambiguously, and post sheer innuendo, I too can say I know who the OC will be without telling anyone. And when the OC is announced, I can guarantee that it is the name that I could have told you now, but didn't.

    And this wasn't intended to be a knock particularly at you Ben, but this all feels like the conference expansion speculation. All kinds of inside information and it seemed very few actually knew a thing.
