    Hopefully this is just agent posturing. I don't want this to happen. Mullen has significant things to fix here, but, I believe he can.

    I know the answer! Dan just reconfirmed me over the phone he is staying. He has not even been contacted.

    I guess we’ve arrived with Mullen...because not one damn nfl team came calling for Mac or Muschamp when they were here.

    What does the media care if we stink? Most of them seem to prefer it that way if anything so their precious sacred cow stays on top. Why do the fans deserve it? If you're talking about the noise about Grantham, it's well deserved.

    Why the hell would he want to go coach the Jets?? If he thinks that is a good idea maybe we should part ways with him!

    Logical is kinda a word that can be more of an opinion. There are plenty of guys that could be a logical option. A competent coach who recruits well would be logical. There are many guys who might have failed elsewhere but could thrive here. On the flipside, there are many coaches who thrived elsewhere who can fail here.

    When we win a NY6 Bowl: the recruits are seeing results on the field! That’ll help in recruiting!

    When we lose a NY6 Bowl: that was just a throwaway game.

    lol.

    Didn’t mean the game had no meaning and shouldn’t have been taken seriously, it bothers me that seems to be the case somewhat. What I meant by “throw away” game is it’s one of those games that there is very little to learn by the outcome. Some games you just have to move on from and put them in your rear view mirror.

    At this point it’s only “the worst” if a better coach is not available. It’s not like Mullen is coming off an SEC or NC title amd TBH we might be on the outside looking in for either in the near future.

    Kliff at least had pro experience (as a player not a coach), Dan literally has zero pro experience. This matters greatly to NFL teams today when choosing a head coach (Urbs would be an exception for obvious reasons).

    I think people are vastly underestimating how Mullen is viewed within coaching circles and by NFL execs. He’s fits the mold of exactly what pro teams are looking for; great scheme, good play caller, innovative spread style offense, and great developer of QB’s. As the saying goes, NFL teams don’t get better they just get better coaches and QB’s. Pair Mullen with a high draft pick QB that fits his system and he has a high likelihood of being very successful IMO.

    I have no inside information and would be stunned were he to leave. I do find it interesting however that this is the year we have this noise. Again no inside information but I suspect that the administration has a different view on the recent probation news than Mullen does.
