    I seriously think FSU was expecting Cristobal and Leavitt to come along as a package deal when they hired WT. Oregon massively screwed them when they made Cristobal head coach. No one at FSU wants to admit it but the guy they hired is not really what they thought they were getting.

    I do find it amusing how they’ve talked themselves into WT being a “CEO” type and that delegating all his responsibilities will help him focus on rebuilding the program. Except you don’t really see him doing anything to rebuild: his recruiting in not what was expected, he doesn’t really open up about anything he’s changing culturally (if he even is doing that), and he seems clueless most of the time. So he can’t coach, he’s not a good CEO, what is he being paid for?

    For all intensive purposes he’s using smoking mirrors in defense of lineman. Don’t take it for granite. This could be the best thing since life’s bread. He might have written in the spurt of the moment, he might have old timers disease, or just in the mist of things and unable to pass mustard. Don’t make fun of him. You could upset his self of steam.

    They'll work the buyout against the new ACCNetwork $$$$$. It's going to hurt and limit the next option somewhat, but they'll have to bite the bullet. If they don't have football, they don't have an identity as a university. Their Admin knows this.

    WT would have to start 5-0 for the fan base to not go Lord of the Flies by early October, and that would only delay the inevitable.

    Is it possible that Willie is intentionally destroying the team? Maybe he is trying to get the number one pick in the draft and doesn't understand how it works.

    I’d love to see the thread near the beginning of the season where someone indicated that F$U was looking much better than us and they didn’t have any quit in them. I’m paraphrasing, but someone might have more effective recall than I do.

    I'm surprised you didn't spell "mustard" as "must-u-r-d".

    Sorry, I couldn't resist. :p:devil::D:D:D

    I remember it well....was after the Kentucky game, maybe in the game thread. The OP was also constantly posting how bad we were looking in recruiting and Mullen's lack of this and that. The post didn't age very well.

    I for one am rooting for them to be 7-4 when they come play us. We send them home 7-5 and everyone is happy with WT for making such big improvements that they extend him. I would not be opposed to him being 7-5 or 8-4 every year.

    It was posted by shaneforthree or something to that extent. He constantly bashed recruiting, Franks, and pretty much everything else Gator related.

    From the Nole fans I have talked to they think that Willie gets bought out after this year (2019) and they hire Stoops away from UK. Doesn’t seem so far fetched. UK is at their absolute peak and as much as I hate F$U they are a legit college football brand.
