    In this orders:
    1. Bob Stoops (pipe dream)
    2. Fickell
    3. Arranda (probably LSU)
    4. Cristobal
    5. Lanning
    6. Napier

    I'm not sold on Arranda... And as far as Lanning goes, I don't want any HC that has ties to Georgia.

    I get the UGA stink. But he’s from TN, I think. Got a feeling about him.
    I’d take Arranda over Napier. But, who knows.

    Lanning has seen what it takes

    That's a good point but I'm paranoid about him being a muschamp/Benedict Arnold

    Everyone wants an offensive guy. Maybe it’s the ‘contrarian’ in me. But if I could get a stud defensive guy, I’d jump on it.

    They don’t need state ties…I agree with that but coaches have repeatedly said recruiting in the SEC is rougher than any other conference. I think you have to want to get down and dirty and be ruthless. Some coaches just don’t want to get involved in that (like chip Kelly).

    Give me Lanning. It can't hurt at this point.

    Im not worried about that. Pay him and it won’t matter. But he’s not my first choice.

    Only if the stud defensive guy truly lets the OC do his thing. Like Bob Stoops did.

    Funny folks wanting a "florida" guy or an sec guy. Spurrier was lightning in a bottle. Our guy who was a genius. But he was at Duke and MANY old school folks at the time panned the hire with "that will never work in the sec." Meyer was NOT an sec guy and he did ok. We hired an sec guy in Muschamp and he was a disaster. If we make a move we need a guy the "best available" - whether he is from Florida or Alaska. I like Fickell and Napier. Unfortunately, I think Dan could have succeeded but the hole he has dug for himself with recruiting, public relations, and player development/commitment it too deep. There is no "sure answer" but if you are not asking questions now, you are in denial.

    And that’s why you’re not in charge. If you go based on that then you would fail every time. “Oh no! Lanning is a UGA DC. We can’t hire him.” Come on man. These are coaches. They’re professionals and will give their all into the job they’re currently at.

    I don’t usually pay attention to stuff like this but I did think he looked a bit nonchalant…almost like this was an expected outcome.

    Guys… come on. I get the desperation for anything new. But we tried the copy Bama with a former Saban coordinator twice. Do we really want to try and copy Kirby with a Kirby coordinator? If we’re going to go crazy and take a huge gamble just go after Deion Sanders. Defensive minded coach, recruiting upgrade, and bleeds colors of our other most hated rival.

    Exactly. Mullen gave up on us. He’s been phoning it in and I think he has something else lined up.

    Is this supposed to make people think Mullen won’t be fired?

    I guess Stricklin doesn’t want to be here either.

    I’m face palming right now. Do you seriously think Dan Lanning would take a HC job to destroy a program from within? That would ruin his credibility as a coach and nobody would ever hire him again. Take your tin foil hat off.
