    FSU friend said boosters raised 20M in private donations to buy him out. Not sure about that though.

    Before the news of the firing of Willy broke, Herbstreit and Fowler Were raking the Noles over the coals for their behavior during the game yesterday. I don’t have a link.

    Sadly it's the right move for them, if you're going in the wrong direction the sooner you dump the wrong guy the better, waiting it out never works.

    I had a few people disagree with me a couple weeks ago when I said that they needed to win a few games to give them hope. I wanted them to at least go through another year or two with him as HC. Boo.

    I'm sure there is a high school coach somewhere that they can afford.

    Cam Akers needs to shut it down for the year. He is a 1st rounder no need to abuse his body anymore.

    Disagree - they will be ahead of other programs in their coaching search - just like we were (and snagged Mullen before others could). Having said that, I wish they would have waited!

    I emailed a friend of mine and he told me this firing gained most of its steam since the loss to Wake. It was already im the works after rhe Clemson loss but it picked up major after Wake beat them.

    Overall hear that there have been a number of players, amd I mean A LOT, who've been involved fights in public settings.

    I myself am rather surprised they fired him without a year 3, mainly because of money, but overall said unless a lot of tapped out boosters came up with the money Low T would be there at least one more year.

    I am waiting now to see if tjat was the case, but do understand that the boosters will have a lot of input in the new hire, because the AD wanted WT to get his three years.

    Agree with those that this is going to be a PR nightmare not only for the university, but for recruiting.

    Personally, I hope UF goes after every stud in their 2020 class. I could see them losing anywhere from 5 to 8 elite kids out of their class, because they arent going to want to sign early unless they know who the next coach will be.

    This is very selfish of Wake, Clemson and Miami. Now, we all have to miss out on the fun.

    Unfortunate for them, probably would have been equal competition and in state publicity.
