    I wasn't thrilled with the thought of Kelly, but it is growing on me. Especially with the ability to hire him early, and have him stick the landing for the class.

    Now it seems Kelly is taking feelers for staff positions.

    FWIW: “He’s working me. Maybe to be a LB’s coach at UCLA. Maybe Florida.” Jonathan Vilma talking Chip Kelly on Russillo Show.

    It's Kelly or Frost or bust for me. I think these are the only 2 coaches man enough for Florida. I'd personally favor Frost, since he's younger and he has a Swagger to him. But Kelly is still a monster hire and the offensive players should be salivating.

    That’s weak!

    Could of said the same for Saban with the Dolphins or Carroll with the Patriots.

    Kelly could be working him for slUT and can't say who it is since they still have a coach.

    If he’s the guy, that will be the most optimistic I’ve felt about the future of this program since December 1989 and 2004.

    kelly started off well enough in the nfl. definitely proved he could win, but i think he had no business trying to play gm. got in over his head on the personnel side of things. big difference from just recruiting, which he would have zero problem with at UF. kelly may or may not coach in college again, but it would be somewhere he can get elite oline and dline talent on a consistent basis. that was his achilles heal at oregon.

    Chippy would easily fit the term "fun". This term by our AD has more impact than we believe.

    potentially, but frost has a ways to go before we know that one way or the other.

    I hate to be that "according to my sources" ass hat but according to my sources (lol) - UF got the clearance from SEC an NCAA in the past 24-48 hours. Should hear something by this time next week, definitely before FSU game so he can be on campus for visits.

    Deciding factor between him and Frost is Chip reached out expressing interest, we reached out to Frost. Frost is playing hardball/feeling himself a bit, plus prob really wants to be in Nebraska. My thought is if Chip wants to be here and we can get him for less...SIGN ME UP! He's Frost's dad essentially in coaching style, he's won on the big stage, I'm HYPE.

    @tilly is a dream killer. You may as well shoot Santa while you're dashing my dreams of frost.
