    Yep.

    “They could paint a stable position, and I really … as soon as they got rid of Muschamp and went with McElwain, there was an offensive guy,” Miles said. “(The Franks family) felt like it was going to be different, and there was always a dark cloud hanging over my head as long as (athletic director) Joe Alleva was going to talk to the press.”

    Good fit for FF at Kansas one would think. Defenses are certainly a step below what he's seen his entire career. Could finish out strong.

    Franks going there and having any kind of success could Jumpstart what les miles is trying to pull off with Kansas.

    NC State could really use Franks. He should follow Brissett's path to the league!

    True - if Franks is healthy enough to play in '20, this would be better for KU than for it would be for Franks.

    I wonder if it will be depressing to go from the crowds at the swamp to the empty seats in Kansas

    Might be a really good fit for Franks. Les Miles isn't a bad coach.

    Les Miles teams were never known for any offensive fireworks or technical QB play were they? Just from memory I always thought he had an old school Big 10 power type football mindset. I have no idea what he runs at Kansas now, but I have to think Felipe can do better.

    Les Miles would win 20-19 on a fake field goal, or... lose that way.

    Or he’d go for it on fourth down a dozen times a game and make it every time.

    Best of luck to Mr. Franks. Great Gator in a tough situation of starting early amongst coaching changes. Thanks for helping turn around the Gator program and being the QB to beat FSU, Michigan and Miami in successive games!!!
