    “Billy Napier isn’t going to just take “any job.” Florida would be appealing, but sources tell SDS he will have a set of substantive demands — including but not limited to increased recruiting budgets, expanded recruiting operations, the hiring of additional analysts, and an aggressive marketing campaign — that he’ll take with him to the table to negotiate with any large program, including the Gators.”

    “It’s time for stability above all in Gainesville, and if Florida fans, and more vitally, the Florida administration, give Napier time, he is capable of building a winner again in The Swamp.”

    $100 to win $600 on Napier isn’t a bad bet.

    I wouldn't rule out UK's Mark Stoops. He has slowly built a program there with less talent. I know he is not a big splash hire, but I think ss is looking for stability, and someone who is not going to embarrass the program. I suspect ss would give MS whatever resources needed since he won't be drawing a 7 million dollar figure. Sometimes, you just can't get what you want but sometimes you might just get what you need.

    To me, Lane K is too much of a risky move for ss, but who knows.

    Yeah, Stoops would have to coach against OK in a couple years ... probably not him.

    For a school that had to settle for Orgeron during their last search, they don't seem to have learned much about lowering their expectations. They all seem convinced Riley is coming. Reminds of the clowns are Bob Stoops.

    Flo's problem is too many cooks in the kitchen. Get an (as in ONE) O-Co and go with it.
    Also he needs to stay dialed into the defense. They are 3-0 since he started carrying the defensive play sheet in his hands again during games.

    Love be some Flo.

    If that's what Napier is asking for, then he's our guy. I'm all all-in.
