It either will or wont be Gruden...in the meantime chillax...

Question, since we are in a hold pattern today with the banquets in NY,


When you look around the college football landscape, which team do you think most closely mirrors the football teachings of General Neyland?

I said this last night, I think we'll have to pay more than 3.5 for Strong. He makes right at 3 now. Louisville will counter any offer we make. I think we'll have to pay 4 for STrong at a minimum, plus a buyout. WHile I think Strong is a good, young coach, I don't think he is worth that kind of money. JMO

Strong hasn't been pasted over twice by florida!
Strong interviewed for the job twice.

Didn't help. I think it was more important to get to the end of the season, but to do that you have to beat Vandy. Once we lost to MSU, I didn't think we'd make a bowl anyway.

If we even think about hiring Fedora, I'm going to slap someone... I have hated him ever since I saw him talk after SM beat Houston last year, guy reminds me too much of Dooley.

There is a reason Charlie Strong was never considered at UF....and his head coaching record in a lackluster conference backs it up.

He very well may end up here, but if he does we'll regret it in short order.
It happens rarely but it is never an exspectation. Assistant coaches are only expected to have a fair shot at jobs when the previous coach that leaves is successful. Anybody that follows the coaching profession knows that! Fisher was the coach in waiting so using him as a example doesn't fly.

So they denied Strong, then hired Muschamp? Seems logical. UF knew what they had, they didn't want it.
