    Sure....
    We'll send this thread to the "Hall of Shame" AKA the trash can, seeing how it wasn't about the Gators, but that school in Tallacrappy. :eek::D

    What possible reason would there be to delay announcing Bob?

    if they were giving Odell a shot, surely Bob wouldn’t take the gig. “Hey Bob, we want you if Odell doesn’t pull this game in the Swamp our of his ...”

    Bob is free so he could have been recruiting. There is no need to “respect” the current staff. The season was over weeks ago and everyone knew it. Hell, even read the GC game thread and instead of freaking out after the SWAC’s opening drive, people were still predicting a blowout. That game was only going one way.

    I don’t see how they could really believe that Bob is now joining.

    It's called "The World of DelusioNoles"....
    They're still thinking that they're gonna be World-beaters next year...and that ain't happening.

    Yep the Delusionoles on the bus to the game Saturday talking about when Bob would be announced. A couple's Gators just sat laughing at them. Of course did anyone else notice most the nole fans didn't appear to be McDonalds employee but much worse.

    Having a coach who isn't formally associated with the team participating in recruiting would be an NCAA violation.

    So do I have this right? They look to have whiffed on the quality coaches of Meyer, Stoops1, Fleck, Campbell, Stoops2, Rhule, Franklin, and Schiano being available and are now down to the questionable character types of Norvelle and Kiffin with several lateral type college positions open (USC?, PSU?, Ole Miss, Arkansas, Missouri) to gobble up other back up options (coordinators/assistants).

    This is what “Mr Insider” has been reduced to, speculating on the new clown hire maybe being imminent because they’re painting the field, slowly though. Now that right there is a scoop. Too funny!

    Meyer....not interested
    Stoops, the Bob..said tha t he got one phone call, and said...."No"
    Stoops, the young and chunky...said "Not interested at all"
    Fleck; ....contract extension
    Campbell... contract extention
    Franklin; said "Are you kidding?"
    Rhule; said "No"
    Schiano; Picked back up by Rutgers

    Norvell, when asked if he was interested in the Arky job, said "I'd rather FSU", but that seemed to be a "lesser of two evils" type of comment, to brush the Arky job off.
    And, Lane Kiffen was last spotted pounding on Thrasher's empty office door screaming "Pick me, pick me...Fror the love of God and all things that a Holy!!..You've already painted half the field....Pick me.....don't give the job to Morris!"

    I think that speaks to his point. If Stoops is the guy, you want him in that official capacity as soon as possible. No upside to waiting.

    Go GATORS!

    As @WESGATORS states, he would be hired as the HC. He doesn’t have to actually coach. Bobby Bowden didn’t appear to coach for almost his last decade. So IF he was the guy, both he and the SWAC wasted 3 weeks for nothing.

    I think they will end up with someone good. I assume Franklin is keeping his name out there in order to get a raise from Penn State, but they are definitely talking. FSU is a very good job, whether we like it or not. I don’t think it is as good a job as UF, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t attractive.
