    Read between the lines, Gator Nation.

    Another reason why Florida State’s Willie Taggart isn’t on the hot seat: Money

    If you ain’t got money for football, you ain’t got money for $hit.

    Coaching search: one local phone call to Jeff Johnson for a quote, one long-distance phone call to Pedro Grifol for a quote, ask Meat in between innings.

    Estimated time spent on coaching search: 14 minutes 23 seconds.

    Estimated cost of coaching search: 14 minutes 23 seconds of salaried employee’s time, one long-distance phone call to Kansas City, use of a computer and word processor.

    Result: Meat, it’s what’s for (Gator baseball’s) dinner


    Bwahahahahahhahahahahahahaha!!!!

    Even though they put out there that they did some sort of coaching search, they obviously did not do any form of coaching search.

    They put no effort to it.

    Even if they did have money they were never going to do any legit form of coaching search.

    Has Jrs salary been made public yet? I was surprised to see how little Sr was making by comparison. Believe his base was 700K-ish & only a possibility of like 65k in extra bonuses. I assume he had "other deals" in place.

    Heres an interesting piece from AU beat writer on how much money schools really have or don't have.

    I think they made the right pick. Think the players wanted him, he knows the State, think he will be more aggressive then his DAD. .
    Still we got their Number Father, Son, Mother who ever.

    A lot of folks complain about facilities at UF, ....but fiscally, I think we’ve always done it right. Haven’t overly extended ourselves or leveraged too much debt, etc.

    As a result we may lag in top flight facilities. But coming some: some top flight facilities are on their way. ( but still looking to complete the finances...)

    Yeah, earlier in the year, one of the FSU publications put together a very interesting list of names as possible replacements for 11. Meat was at the bottom of the list and the author mentioned that no one was excited by the possibility of meat as the replacement. They were shooting higher and one of the names that intrigued me was former Gator and former Cubs catcher, David Ross. I thought Ross was an interesting candidate but wondered if they could entice him away from his ESPN job. Funny how quickly they turned to meat.

    I thought Ross would be more of a real possibility also if their true intention was to upgrade their program—He and former player there and MLB player and current Milb manager (8 years experience) Doug Mientkiewicz I thought were the more qualified candidates.

    Well one more time, you get what you pay for......

    the Chiefs I know are not happy with the pick and even less satisfied with the athletic department finance statement at the most recent Pow Wow of their version of Bull Gators

    Not to mention season ticket sales are down for FB. Their two biggest fan games UF and Clemson are both away.

    They have no AD. Most coaches understand an AD likes to hire their own people over time and the relationship with your boss is important. You don’t leave s good situation for an unknown.

    These are politically correct ways to say “You can’t make chicken salad out of chicken sh!t”, right?;)
