    I was a big supporter of Muschamp, I wanted to give him next year and I would have even considered giving him one if we lost to Vandy in a respectable fashion... Not this. I don't think its all his fault but that really doesn't mean much when we are this bad...

    So who do you want as our HC?

    I think Strong would be a good hire. I think him alone could save our recruits from leaving. We will still keep a great D but I also think he understands we need explosive offense too.

    What other names do you guys have?

    I would like the see an offensive coach. At florida, you can always recruit well. It's easier to put good defensive players out there and expects good results than offensive players.

    I think Chad Morris should get serious consideration.

    The guy I really want is Pat Fitzgerald. A lot of people are gonna look at his record and immediately dismiss him, but I think the guy is an elite coach in the mold of Harbaugh. He just doesn't have the resources or talent to compete at a consistent level.

    If we hire a new coach, I wonder how many middle fingers we get in the search? That said, there aren't many, if any, that get me very excited.

    Petrino. The man is a winner. I don't care if he isn't having the best first season at Western Kentucky. If you want another trophy he is the best bet.

    Folks....I have news for you......Spurrier and Meyer could not win many games with this team! They are decimated by injuries and have absolutely no offensive line. Please feel free to dream up a head coach who can win 9 or 10 games with that type of bad luck and zero talent on the O-line!

    I think the guy for our Program is a guy that nobody brings up..... Recruits Love him and he's been waiting for the perfect opportunity..... Might be another risk but I think it's worth a shot KIRBY SMART from Alabama.......

    Who is the head coach and/or OC at UCF? They are arguably #2 in the state.

    Miami plays VaTech tonight and if they lose, I'm saying UCF is #2.

    Bring back SOS (if he would come back), retain trob, keep an eye open to identify the next hot coach, bring him in as coach in waiting while SOS transitions into retirement.
