    Whatever issues we’ve had with SS, he handled this hire flawlessly. Kudos to him. He got the guy he wanted without drama and torture. Now let’s hope CBN works out. Nothing is a sure thing but I’m hoping!

    But that’s not the point of this thread. It’s about SS and his hiring process. Very nicely and professionally done.

    Spencer Scuttlebutt did us a square on the hire for sure! Hope CBN is all we dreamed of.

    Slim Shady did pull it off so congratulations to him. I have been saying he can't screw this up because of the WBB problems. So yes kudos to Stevie Schmackelbottoms.

    You spelled Stan Stockholm wrong, but this will go down in history as a model hiring process. Kudos to him

    This coach is cut from the same cloth that Saban is. He is a program builder with real plan for infrastructure... for longevity and sustainability. That's something the Gator football program has never had.

    I have been reading everything I can find on Billy Napier, for almost two weeks, well before we fired our last coach. Billy Napier is a methodical and tireless coach in his effort to build a sustainable football program.

    We hit the home run we were looking for. But just be advised... there is not such thing as instant success. And although we might have to take a couple of bumps along the way, I still believe that in short order we will see noticeable improvements. Improvement in recruiting, how we recruit, who we recruit... the whole process.

    We'll see accountability on the support coaching staff, with real good coaches, coaches with proven track records that care about our players and who they recruit.

    I for one am sky high thrilled that we hired a man like Billy Napier to be The University of Florida's new head football coach.

    GO GATORS!

    Stan Strickland moved swiftly. Like his cousin Rod did in the nba years ago.

    Wonderful job by Scroat Strackfin. We identified our guy and went out to get him, immediately.

    And this board got behind Napier really quickly....almost too quickly :D
