    How is that even possible when even our president flew up to meet chip.

    I get you want to blame someone that we didn't get him, but this thing was obviously pretty serious and many folks were confident it was getting down. You can call Bs just because you don't like the result but that makes no sense.

    No, what he was looking for is the intangibles. What he was looking for was commitment to financial support for assistants. What he was looking for was commitment to facilities. What he was looking for was a program willing to go in for football.

    Salary was never going to be the closing factor for him. He is getting paid regardless.

    Believe want you want and ignore all the backup that other media (not just board volunteers) had the same info along with the president being involved in the process.

    I get it, your pissed Kelly blew us off ... me too, but you're showing your ass. Guess you get your kicks doing so ... great character.

    Edit ... Meant for percy

    This is just too funny. You guys all pissed off because two guys shared what the paid staff were saying and your pissed that it didn’t happen? This is a freakin college sport forum, it’s not a senate subcommittee. People come here to share opinions or just bitch about anything and everything Gators because their lives suck. I get it, it’s okay...did anyone notice Thrill said he would be surprised if it was Frost....mmmmhmmmm...read between the lines people.

    Watching Nussmeier today leans me towards believing some of the rumors that we wanted chip to retain some coaches on staff. Because I cannot see how Nuss wasn’t canned with Mac or in the least was demoted to qb coach while someone else called plays. The fact he is still OC has to be a UF admin decision. And a horrible one

    I was content to not post, sit back and watch and wait. Never thought Kelly would pick UCLA over Florida. I’m kind of in shock to be honest with you guys. I did go to the UCF versus USF game Saturday. It was senior day and I had my binoculars on Frost, I will post on another thread what I observed it was pretty eye-opening to me.

    @tilly @BenTrillGriffin were attacked by me early in this thread, and I can tell you that I was in the wrong. I have been all over every corner of the Gator web. All the paid insiders were wrong.

    These guys were relaying to you information to you that wasn't publically available. I stand behind the things posted in this thread, and they were coming to us with info from legit sources.

    If you want to be mad at somebody be mad at our clown of an AD and his posse of belligerent idiots

    We are upset because we all love our Gators, don't take it out on guys who love them too, and take the time engage and share with you. They aren't paid to do it unlike the insiders with eggs on their faces

    This post makes no sense. UCLA has not been a serious FB school in a long, long time. As some have said here, they don’t even have their own stadium. We began to give the investments that coaches like CK want when McElwain arrived. A guy who had a problem with no buyout if fired with cause, and seemed to want total control with no oversight is not the right guy for UF. I agree, salary wasn’t the issue. I don’t think CK wants the pressure that comes with our job.

    Can't fire everyone for cause. Also do need a staff to play out the string. Nuss is on Mac, not on admin. Admin did their part to remedy the situation.

    This is my concern...word gets on the street how we managed Kelly deal and I have to believe this becomes a deterrent for anyone with proven coaching experience. We will have to concede to an up and comer who’s hungery enough to make concessions to build their resume and wallet.

    Recognizing the Kelly / Frost relationship, guessing Kelly has given Frost a heads up on how events played out which may also disadvantage us...

    Except can't the administration fire coordinators too? Honest question because I have no idea how this works with coordinators.

    When this is all said & done, SS needs to put details out there. Otherwise UF isn't looking good if CK took a lesser contract.

    Count me in as someone who, although I am sorely disappointed in the ultimate outcome, appreciates the information shared by @tilly and @BenTrillGriffin. They had more information than I did and they did their best to share it in a timely manner. They couldn't control the outcome. Keep posting guys.

    Or it could be UF not wanting to pay a buyout just to have someone gone with only four games left during a season that was a fully-involved dumpster fire.

    But sure, university collusion to keep Nuss on in the next staff is probably equally as likely.
