    Foley was a great athletic program director. He was an awful football director.

    I’m not sure why people think evaluating and selecting coaches is transferable between sports. The reality is very few ADs are qualified to hire for any sport, let alone all of them.

    Fooleys most glaring problem were football facilities. It’s impossible to know the process of his football hires, which the process is good. It’s not fair to just judge on results. We do know he failed on football facilities.

    What if Norvell gets revenge on Frost in the championship game...?

    Would think he becomes more attractive.

    All you are doing here is highlighting your lack of character. Pay sites are an option, you choose whether or not you want to pay for the information. That's what pays the salaries of the people working there. You don't think the information is worth the money .... don't buy a subscription. But boasting about being a leech who lives off stolen crumbs is a not a good look.

    And neither is being a constant Negative Nelly. Then again when you have nothing to contribute, being a whiny-ass is often the best alternative. Have at it.

    You're totally right. Hudson sat out last year. Either way keep bringing in the transfers if they are going to play like this.

    Currently on page 1080...like 1080p.

    It's 1080p clear that we aren't going to be the Chip Kelly Florida Gators.

    Frosty Florida has a nice ring to it...

    I tire of the idiotic excuse that 'there's too much to do' in Orlando, or Miami, or Tampa...

    Complete bullshit.

    Because guess what? All 3 are in the State of Florida, and all three compete directly with Gator games.

    But Gator fans across the state forego all those wonderful things to do in O'town/Tampa/Miami, and drive much farther, and pay more, to see our beloved Gators.

    So sorry, but no....that's just a chicken shit excuse the big city boys like to propagate to excuse their cheap, lazy, fair weather fandom.

    Let them comfort themselves with that trite stupidity; don't be a party to it.

    Why on earth would you 'not generally disagree'?

    He said Strong was a fraud, and compared him exactly to Mac.

    You effectively completely rebuked that position, and left a lot on the table.

    Why not just straight up call bullshit?

    Charlie Strong is 10x > than Mac.

    Is TODAY the day?

    Don't hold your breath! Probably not, unless the sea parts, and clouds disappear from the sky, and the football Gods annoint UF as their chosen program.

    he's probably an outstanding man. i just think uf needs to do a little better than "career salesman, program manager".

    i'd rather get dirty and hire petrino or kiffin. actually, if those two weren't dirty they'd be home run hires.

    I think he is going to parlay kimself into...staying with ESPN. UCLA may be a program who will wait until....? to get an answer and live with the outcome. We just weren't. I consider it smart.
