I would say to use one's brain here. $8M not happening, not for Frost.
Well there was one time at Club 5 that the crossdressing host(ess) said "they aint real!" to me, and I said yes they are, then he/she put their hand down my corsett to prove if they were real or not and then promptly announced to the huge crowd that yes they were...to which everyone cheered, and I took a bow & got a free drink for being a good sport.
This, plus the fact that neither side has effectively shot down the rumors.
It benefits neither to let it fester, if there's nothing to it. UF for obvious reasons, CK a little less obvious--but how many oppy's have been shut down, b/c he didn't shut this rumor down?
IMO, both parties would have come right out and shut down the 'speculation' coldly (even if gently).
Alright, here it goes - us or UCLA.
Since we are VERY far along in the process and have come to at least a verbal agreement on the terms I think we have a really good chance.
However, if there is some intangible that had UCLA always as a preferable destination for Chip then we might be in trouble.
Mike Leach definitely does not.
Hate to tell you but sources say Chip Kelly was seen at Chic-Fil-A this morning, there was a hiring sign on the door.
Nah.... I think Chip has a plan to win and he wants everything to be in order so when he's officially announced as coach he can hit the ground running
I read it as we want them to meet the new guy later, rather than bringing them in to meet the interim staff, and experience the ...existing atmosphere... currently languishing over the locker room.
What do you make of that ESPN tweet above?
Holy shat I'm agreeing with Wing. If he's on your side you probably love him. If not ya gonna hate.
Again, it's very possible that this UF v. UCLA thing relates to the offset language in his NFL contract. If the reports that Kelly and UF had agreed in principle and were waiting to avoid an offset, the NFL lawyers might be all over that and argue that he was effectively hired. Making this appear to be a real decision would help mitigate that.
We're still good, guys and gals. From source - Still 100% confident that Chip Kelly will be publicly announced as the Gator head ball coach on Sunday. It is confirmed that the wait is because of the reasons discussed regarding Kelly's NFL contracts and payouts. Sorry but the source does not have an exact time for the announcement on Sunday.
Source also confirms that UCLA simply didn't have enough money to compete for Kelly.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone. Enjoy family and friends, hopefully we can pull off a win Saturday and then let's enjoy our new coach on Sunday.
That sounds like a bestseller in the making.
If it is true that it legitimately took 3x or so weeks of negotisting, vetting, etc. How is it, logistically that UCLA can come in in a few days and be at the same stage as we are?
Only way u see him picking Ucla is if that was his preference all along.
Meyer is a University of Cincinnati alum that was a GA at Ohio State.
Is Campbell left out because we think the buyout is just undoable?
For those of you that think this holdout of information is because CK is trying to play us against other universities for more money, that just doesn't flat make sense to me. He has plenty of money from his past 3 coaching opportunities - one of which is still paying him. The guy is all about football. Anyone who is capable of bringing him in is going to be paying him big $ already. I just don't see a million a year one way or another making that big of a difference when you take into account his ego and desire to win championships. If that isn't part of it, why not just stay at ESPN and collect and easy paycheck? If one school is looking to pay him $5M more a year, that's a big difference, but if it's within 1 or 2 I think the ability to compete for championships at the highest level of college football has to weigh in pretty heavily.
