    I don't want Strong. His offense will probably collapse after the #1 pick of the draft Teddy leaves after this season. He has not been as impressive as the hype has been.

    And we have news to you. Should never lose to Vanderbilt, ever. It is time.

    I agree. The problem most will have is it would feel just like a Muschamp. A UGA alum who learned under saban, defensive specialist, and no heah coaching experience

    Petrino is not happening and I dont want it to happen. It is such a bad year to look for a new coach.

    Petrino?
    Dabo?
    SOS?

    Might as well throw Lane Kiffin in there since apparently we'll take any old body.

    Agreed. He would be a horrible selection. Look at the teams he has lost to while at Louisville. The fanbase would turn on him quick. He is a good fit where he is. I hope he isn't interviewed.

    I have news for you. With SOS or Meyer, we could win with our 3rd string players.

    If we hire Petrino, the following will happen next year:

    Driskel will be top 3 passing in the SEC and throws for over 3,000 yards

    Kelvin Taylor becomes feature back and runs for at least 800 yards

    Dunbar catches over 70 balls and surpasses 1000 yards

    Robinson catches over 70 balls and surpasses 1000 yards

    Fullwood catches over 40 balls and surpasses 500 yards

    Kent Taylor catches over 30 balls and surpasses 400 yards

    Will Grier gets valuable back up snaps in second halves and throws for more than 750 yards

    Ermon Lane gets worked into the offense (as well as other freshmen and back-ups) and catches over 20 balls and surpasses 300 yards

    Offensive line instantly becomes better, because we have an offensive mind that molds a strategy around strengths and weaknesses.

    And finally, defense probably goes to shit, but who cares, not me!

    Whoever it is needs to be recognised for his X's O's on the offensive side of the ball. We have enough playmakers on D to be more than competitive for the forseeable future but offensively we are a shell.

    A splash hire is needed to re-energise this programme.

    Briles. Make him your priority. We will have kids falling all over themselves to commit to play for him.

    No, that would not be good for recruiting to have a lame duck as head coach which every recruit would know it's temporary because of his age plus SOS doesn't like beating the bushes at recruiting.

    i don't disagree with this but I also saw some quit in this team I hadn't seen yet. I've backed Muschamp sincehis opening presser but if Jeremy makes the call I can't argue

    Haven't seen a name on here that gets me excited at all. A few may have our program on probation in a couple of years after being hired.

    We need an offensive minded HC, esp to work closely with Grier coming in as a fresh

    You have to consider a great recruiter to keep the very good 2014 class we already have together, and a guy who understands good offensive and defensive balance. You cannot consider another assistant with zero HBC'ing experience.

    Charlie Strong is a good choice, if he'll leave Louisville, and he'd recruit Florida like a mad-man IMO. He could step in at UF and put together a good pro-style/spread version of offense with the type of players we already have on hand now.

    Taking a serious look at some of that staff at Baylor isn't a bad idea.

    Larry Fedora at UNC isn't a bad choice.

    I wouldn't touch Dabo Sweeney at Clemson with a ten foot poll, but admittedly, the man can recruit very, very well.

    Franklin at Vandy? Hmmm, wouldn't be one of my top choices, but I have to admit, the guy is a fiery coach and his players seem to love him and play very hard for him. To think he managed to beat both UF and UGA in the same season, almost back-to-back is impressive to say the least.

    And then there's the always-rumored stand-by Bob Stoops at Oklahoma. yes, some will say he chokes too much, but one has to wonder what he could do with UF's talent.

    I honestly believe this (but only pre first quit Meyer).
