    FSWho coaching search remaiins as bleak as 98 year old Bertha Blavitz's frozen crotch......

    Page 136 has arrived, with all of the expected fanfare....only to turn out to be about as epic as a fart in a windstorm,....or having some pus in your mouth...........

    Josh Newberg reports; "Damn, boy!...Are those teeth, or Chicklets?..and those are some nasty squirtin' tonsils!"

    Trusted Insiders are reportedly building a new podium, for the "Big Reveal" of their new Head Coach..... The race is on to see which happens first, finishing the podium, or finidng a coach.....
    Things are not looking good, however, as the insiders have lost the instructions on how to build the podium.....or how to find a new coach, for that matter.....

    "Air Farce One" is on the tarmac, refueling, since there has been no coaching movement in the recent days, and that Thrasher's plane remains in the Caymans.

    Maybe I got it wrong, and she was one of the original owners of the Hooters in the Tampa Bay area.

    I am fairly certain, having been obsessed with all of this in a car crash kind of way, that I understand what’s happening in Tally.
    When the donors ponied up the money to buy out WT, in return they were given more input into the hiring process (understandable politics on the part of the AD).
    So what you have now are three factions:
    Those that know just enough to be dangerous and are leaking various things that are likely half truths at best.
    Those that are staying quiet.
    And those that feel that they can sway the results by leaking things that pressure their admin on certain candidates that they are likely pursuing on their own through mutual contacts. Imagine a Terry Bowden reaching out to Bob, hearing he won’t completely shut the door, and strategically leaking to trying get him across the finish line. Or the guy who has never dealt with sports agents getting the BS “yeah this sounds great I will take it back to Bob”, and having said booster (or his son that he told) take that as imminent agreement.
    And then once they are in belief mode, they excuses follow when it doesn’t happen.

    He is one tough 4th grader. He's been running track on it for two weeks...but over compensating and complaining. I went on a business trip and came back to a concerned wife/momma as I kept telling her it was nothing.

    Soooo...I am now in trouble with that same wife/momma.

    So he is fine BUT I may not be. #yikes

    F$U assistant Jim Leavitt is no longer with the program. Leavitt joined the staff as a defensive analyst in Sept. on a deal that ran through Aug. 2020, but he was promoted to a full-time role last month. That new agreement expired this month.

    Well in one sense they do. It is called the collective taxpayers of the State of Florida. Get ready for some creative funding for "educational buildings" at FSU again so they can fund competitive facility upgrades to compete as if they had the booster support like a big time SEC school.

    Well of course. FSU kicks our butts when it comes to both the Circus and fashion design. We are such idiots we don't even get the beauty of the glitter turnover backpack. They are laughing at use. :)

    Yeah, "solid but unspectacular" is Norvell in a nutshell. Big step up compared to Willie, but not a guy that is going to elevate a program to prominence while fighting significant problems in multiple areas.

    Respectable hire and what will amount to a caretaker tenure I'm sure (assuming he doesn't still turn them down).

    Praying en masse, since it's the only name left that isn't a complete whiff.
