    Morning :) I see this board is having more mood swings than a teen girl on her period.

    I am hoping when I go home at 8am this morning, that this will be unanswered because I want to wake up to good news. If it happens before I go to bed, well, I won't be sleeping much today. Lol.

    Holy crap. Some of you need to man up already. Yes it's a rollercoaster. It's either a fantastic ride or ends like that one in Final Destination 3 where everyone falls off the coaster and dies in a variety of ways (and then so do the ones that got off the coaster).

    Get your proverbial balls out of your wife's bag, mom's keepsake bin, whatever and man up and snap out of it! Geez!

    If it doesn't happen, his loss, we're Florida, and we'll find someone who will coach us. Do we want CK? Is he candidate #1? Yes & yes. But seriously...take some Midol and let's see how it plays out.

    So we can all agree the waiting BS was just that. BS. This is an inferno and the players and future players are affected. This needs to get done now or this week will be hell for our team preparing for free shoes U.

    Some legit NFL reporter tweeting that 2 sources had said Chip had already signed.

    So just reading up and catching up on this thread and the airplane drama and speculation of yes and no. Man, now I know even less about what’s going on.

    Hopefully we have a new coach. if not, I can’t imagine UF pursues CK any further if CK is testing the waters at UCLA (which is speculation at this point but I guess possible). Can’t imagine SS and CK working well together if you get to the final stages of courting, then CK says I need more time due to UCLA, then CK says “eh, UCLA not for me let’s do it UF” and then you get married. That puts a strain and some bitterness into a working relationship from day 1 so....if Chip even mentioned UCLA and need more time I think we move on.

    Of course, SS may already have a signature and it’s all done. No one knows. Overnight it was negative Nellie and Debbie downers posting mostly negative scenarios. UCLA job is tough...because no way thr CA state school,system will do enough to support any coach.

    The only good thing about coaching in CA is the in state talent there. We all know Chip is not a huge fan of recruiting and either state (CA or FL) will minimize that with the instate talent alone.

    I do think there is light at the end of the tunnel with this whole process. I think a lot of curveballs have been thrown by all involved with this. Now we have to do what a good hitter does when thrown a curve, just sit back and wait....

    It’s possible but that means Kelly never wanted to coach here in the first place. If that’s true I doubt he would have spent this much time on it.

    I also seriously doubt that Kelly would have turned us down outright since he would then lose leverage over UCLA. Worst case he would have said “let me think about it” to UF while he talked to UCLA.

    UCLA just announced Mora’s firing so it’s going to take some time for them to get a deal for Kelly into place. I doubt they would say “we’ll match whatever you’re getting from UF plus 10%!” since they wouldn’t even know the terms of our deal. It’s just not that simple.

    I’m hopeful that’s it’s already signed and this is all smoke. If not, I’m hopeful that C.K. just wants to talk sleep on it and maybe listen to a pitch from someone else before he commits to UF for the long haul.

    Chip is a smart man. He knows that UF > UCLA. Their only NC was in 1954.

    And it wouldn’t be just about more money. Approving his needs for changes in weight training, nutritional staff, etc.
