    BN could be a force in a very weak ACC and he knows it. The SEC is not for the faint of heart.

    I don't think that it has moved since then. I think that is still in the mountains! Probably the Western part. ;-)

    Besides landing a good coach, I hope this search doesn’t result in a pay raise for Bob Stoops (Unless it’s to be the UF coach).

    That is correct, unless we put our cart before the fat lady singing.

    History proves UF can win a national title and the administration has committed to vastly improved facilities. Any coach that wants to win a national title is not going to VT. That is a super heavy lift and may not even be possible (has not been done before). Absent some historical tie to VT, anybody saying VT makes more sense than UF is simply negative without logic.

    As for Napier, I have no inside knowledge. It has been confirmed, however, that the two parties had mutual interest and talked. If those talks were fruitless then UF would be on to the next coach b/c time is short. We would hear about those inquiries. Further, it sure seems like the Mullen decision may have been made before Sunday and groundwork laid with BN. Unless SS is taking the week off for Thanksgiving without a coach in mind (fireable offense), my guess is that all this is positive for UF/Napier.

    Noticed the title change...

    Any news or change of status quo besides Stoop's lack of interest?

    Very observant but most people probably have more to do than count vowels and consonants (I haven't typed that word in a while!)

    I earned my MBA from Liberty and agree it is a very beautiful campus in the mountains.

    How would this board respond if Napier goes elsewhere?
