    I wouldn't be so sure about this. Shands has the largest # of Covid positive patients there right now than they have had since the whole she-bang began.

    Strong was hired by Mattison in the 90s at Notre Dame. They liked each other, and could get on the same page. Grantham and Trob have none of that. Moreover it’s a situation where trob gets all the credit for a good year, and Grantham gets all the credit for a bad year.

    I was not aware of that...and I agree with your assessment even though nowhere do I see that TRob has any better credentials than Grantham....maybe recruiting?

    I think Strong was already here and Urban brought in Mattison to be the co-DC and share the duties with Strong. Strong went to Louisville and Mattison went to the Baltimore Ravens thereafter.

    Unfortunately. We aren’t signing Stanford level guys. Except for Chief of course.

    It is easy to call plays as a DC (Strong) when you have a DL coach like Mattison with the DL players that Urban recruits.

    All that is true enough, but what else is true is that the UAA not only pays for every new athletic facility lock, stock, and barrel down to the pens they use ; they also pay for the land those facilities are build on, all of the upkeep and all the associated costs for every scholarship athlete(depending on wether the scholarship is full or partial), and additionally pay rent and associated costs to the University for the use of facilities that the UAA has footed the cost for.
    Let’s not pretend that the UF doesn’t make an enormous amount of money off the UAA, and let’s not also be under any illusions about what athletic team bares the overwhelming brunt of those costs. No costs are accrued by either taxpayers or UF for our athletic programs.

    What news are you expecting Grantham isn’t going anywhere. There was never any real smoke let alone rumors of such.

    No only during the Zook era, but at Texas and at USF. I just don’t understand the DREAM of some GATORS FANS with Strong , let’s live a reality the game has passed him by, NO on STRONG.

    well i just think certain people fit at certain places with the right people/staff. Strong was just a bad fit at Texas. He/they were damn good defensively at Louisville, we can’t overlook that. But yea, the game may have passed em by or he’s just better off as a DC. Prolly both lol

    I said he wasn’t going anywhere a week ago. Candy said something to the sort of expect good news on or by Friday.
