    No matter what Bell's official title is, and Strong's if he comes, the players will benefit from what these guys have to offer to the program, I'm very pleased with this!

    So if we get Bell and Strong and we finally establish a running game, our offense will be known as the running of the bulls.

    This new analyst angle has basically made for zero unemployment for college football coaches.

    Wow. Just wow. We have a head coach with a deep understanding of Gator history and culture. I'm tearing up.

    We all have favorite Kerwin moments, but mine is watching him come out of nowhere at the O&B game and my buddy and I going, What is this!

    I guess if any of our coaches get poached, then we have a couple of analysts that can step right in.

    This is a good hire and gives us an option in case someone on the offensive staff leaves.

    Lol! I can't believe everything that went wrong in that clip.
    1. Bell spikes his own nuts.
    2. Defender shoves him in the face
    3. Another defender falls on him, butt on face.
    4. Flag was on Bell for taunting, if i recall correctly.

    That's why he hides under his desk, after his incessant crowing about UCF and their Mythical National Championship hopes were dashed bythe real "Lazy river" team, and others. :D

    The personality strength that Mullen has is immense. That he has the instincts and courage to hire these guys on his staff; to take in what they know, to put them out there to recruits is astonishing. He has made an unbelievable number of right moves.
    It matters not that I loved the hire, what matters is that he is doing even better than he is given credit.

    I like it! Should also satisfy the contingent who wanted Kerwin as an OC or HC.

    The analyst positions are great because it sets up succession planning in the event one of our position coaches decides to go elsewhere or is fired. You just slide Kerwin or Strong into that position & they are already familiar with the kids and system.

    This is how you bring in ex players - as analysts to see what they bring to the table. Even Kerwin, with significant coaching experience, should be vetted. Being a good or great player does not mean you are a good or great coach. If he is just a fair staff addition, he isn't hired above his value, whereas if he is great he can get promoted.

    Contrast Miami hiring Ed Reed as "Chief of Staff." Guy was a great player but has almost no coaching experience and has never run an organization that I am aware of. So you take Diaz who is in over his head and drowning and you throw Reed onto his back to give him guidance? A PR stunt that screams desperation, conflict, and almost certain failure.

    I can't wait to watch....
