    If Mullen isn't fired, Slim Shady has to be fired too. So what staff do you guys want?

    Mullen brought this on himself. He is condescending to fans through the media. He limits reporter and thus fan access to the program (closed spring, closed practices), he chooses friends on staff vs what is best for the program, etc.

    Not only could Mullen have improved the teams prospects for this year by canning Todd he would have earned some goodwill with boosters and fans. He could have done similar after LSU game.

    every action or inaction Mullen has done since last years LSU game has been the wrong choice.

    And now it is like he wants to be fired. When asked about adjustments he made at halftime he says they made no adjustments? On live tv that is a message to his boss that he wants to be gone. A message to fans to F off. What I don’t get is his abandonment of his players and not doing the best he can for them. That is unreal.

    I wonder If the lecture he got from his boss after the pack the swamp comment last year soured him on UF. It was after that moment that his attitude seemed to change. No one likes to be reprimanded in public. Bet that pissed him off.

    regardless, my solution on a go forward which won’t happen is…

    fire Dan and the AD. Spurrier is made AD with an up and coming associate AD hired as an AD in waiting. Spurrier convinces Bob Stoops,to take the head coaching job for at least a few years and he finds another Lincoln Riley type to take his place 4 years from now. My dream.

    It’s gonna take a lot more than just the Gator Boosters to get us back to championship level. A lot more.

    Good point but we got to start somewhere and imo we need to start looking for a coach after this debacle. Not sure Stricklin would make the move unless he's pressured to.

    Lane ain’t coming. He and his agent aren’t stupid. He’ll just use us as a ploy to extort Ole Miss for a raise.

    Look how well bringing the beloved Fulmer in as AD worked for Tennessee...

    Something needs to happen. Maybe Urban wants to come back to Florida, lol. Bring Muschamp as recruiting coordinator....

    In all seriousness, I would like Lane Kiffin. We need the MOJO back and that would come with Kiffin. You can bet he would want to stick it to Saban and Smart.

    IMO, this feels more like 2017. That 2013 team at the very least had a legit excuse with the devastating rash of injuries they had. This team has flat out given up.

    The upside at UF is far greater than Ole Miss. Plus greater pay

    We can get him.

    I don’t think our upside is as high as it once was.

    Coaches don’t like the idea that they could walk into a mess, with lackluster admin support, do reasonably well, then produce a dud of a season and be fired.

    I think Lane’s next stop is the NFL.

    Dan is 1-8 against his last 9 teams with a pulse. And most of those teams are mediocre

    Ok. It’s clear Mullen isn’t the answer.

    I’m just very pessimistic about the next 5-10 years of UF athletics across the board, for many reasons. I’ve been warning people about that for some time, yet nobody listens.

    Lane or Hugh freeze. They win, they recruit, it’s exciting….Lane has a killer staff… I’d take Lebbee at this point. The only people who think Lane is a jerk are stodgy boomers. Kids LOVE him and same with Freeze. This ain’t 1950… hell this ain’t 2010… you gotta view college football with all new lenses and throw coach speak & traditional ways out of the window. It’s time to move into the 21st century with our new facility and high energy and someone that knows how to work recruiting and media. Lane would win a national title here and our rivals would HATE US!!

    Yep, I don't see where Mullen can stay on and the Athletic Dept is serious about a quality football program.
