    You know, not for nothing, but if I'm the AD at Louisiana or Ole Miss or anywhere else, there's no way in Hell I'd let anyone from UF talk to my Head Coach until at least the Regular Season is over.

    I mean, Napier's playing in the Sun Belt Conference Championship Game in a couple of weeks. It's not a big deal to us, but I'm sure it is to the folks who are currently paying his salary.

    Steve Schmicklscmakker said no announcements until the new coach's regular season is over.

    They might not, but can't control who the agent speaks to.

    That’s not how these things work.

    Agents for the coaches and the university don’t have to get permission from anyone.

    You can talk all day from a fan’s perspective about honor and integrity but at the end it’s all about money.

    It’s a big deal to us also as time is tucking away. Recruiting season essentially ends with early signing day in less than 3 weeks. Even keeping kids will be tough unless someone is named soon.

    Great Album. Saw them live in the early 90s at the Scope Arena in Norfolk.

    If UF goes for Napier & VT gets him, that tells a lot about our program.

    Maybe. I'd say it would be more telling in regard to Napier's aspirations. Not every coach wants to have annual playoff contender as the standard.

    I think, based on SS words, they want more of a CEO type moving forward. Recruit your ass off, build the program and delegate.

    Rule of gas station food:
    The more sketchy the neighborhood, the better the food.
