    Need more than that. UF blocked their planes durring the last two searches...we had to did deeper.
    ...and all joking aside, we were right. Thus the plane in Ocala that we knew about before it landed.

    Kiffen at f$u is my greatest nightmare. Underestimate him at your own risk. One of these days he’s gonna actually grow up and I think he has the potential to be another Urban (good and bad).

    So in our search we got the best available in CDM.

    Cam we say who are the best available at the moment to include employed coaches at other smaller schools that look to be step-up candidates?

    we know of Norvell and Kiffen.

    Really? I think he's a pretty good offensive coach but I haven't seen much that makes me think he's a good head coach.

    LOL. The Tallahassee Gator Rapid Response Team has been defunct for years now. Me and one other are about the only ones left up here in this area. Most of our sources have retired, moved, got other jobs, etc., but I'll never forget our defining triumph... when we exposed the Dillards Scandal to the sports media when fsu and the local PD had all but covered it up.

    Agree 100%.
    Kiffen at FSU would be bad for the FSU-haters. He would have an immediate positive impact on their program and over the long-term, his teams would be lethal. He's the one guy I don't want them to hire. Bob Stoops is a short term fix. Mark Stoops doesn't wow me...either does Norvell, Campbell, Clawson or Allen.

    Kiffen has a very high ceiling and we've already seem him hit bottom -- his "floor" is much higher than Taggerts.

    I'm hoping for Haggins.

    Kiffen has been a head coach for ten years now and for four different teams. At some point, what you see is what you get: some success on offense, some success in recruiting, a whole lot of self promotion, and very modest results.

    Kiffin's record as head coach does not scare me at all. Why is the situation going to be so much better for him at FSU than it was at USC? He failed miserably at USC and was run out of town on a rail. FSU doesn't offer any thing that USC didn't have, except a miserable balance sheet. His record at FAU isn't all that great either.

    People have to be nuts to compare him to Urban Meyer. Meyer was a winner everywhere he went; Kiffin has never been a winner.

    I can’t believe Bobby Stoops lowered himself down to be part of that crew. Just look at who all the other HC’s are, it’s a joke. Vince just wanted to burn a bunch of his $$$ up, and will.

    Despite Kiffin's record, he's the only "scary" candidate to me.

    This is so much more fun than the insider board. Multiple Stoops threads. @tilly knows what he is doing. 38 pages to catch up on. 98 pages until we reach epic.
