I really was hoping for frost in November. I guess UCF gets to continue their success.

Still hasn't been inked in yet. UCLA is on the table

I hope we (UF) gets him. Seems to be the best candidate of all the available ones. I say we get the master and not the apprentice (frost)

The thought of UF hiring Chip Kelly makes me queasy. He has a questionable reputation, both professionally and as a person (his rep is that he is a total jerk), and was on the NCAA's "show cause" list due to violations at Oregon (which were uncovered after he left). Sure, he is a good coach (or at least he was at one stop - Oregon), but, I would prefer an up and coming coach with a clean rep. I had my issues with a lot of Foley's decisions, but, I can't imagine him ever bringing Chip Kelly to UF. I fear that we will return to the types of recruits that Meyer had - great athletes who end up being more trouble than they are worth. Not a good hire for UF in my opinion.

"he is a total jerk"

Then he fits in with all the gator fans. LOL.

Chip Kelly brings an exciting form of offense. Scott Frost has proven it works in Florida. UCF has the number one offense in the country. Fun to watch. Score at will. Its amazing how it works. Would it work in the SEC? More than likely. Auburn is running a similar offense.

Unfortunately, he would fit in at almost any college. There are jerks everywhere, including those who accuse all fans of the "other school" of being jerks. LOL (adding an LOL makes any offensive comment okay, I reckon).

Yes, the LOL is used as *sarcastic diabolic laugh* Spreading rumors that his 'rep is that he is a total jerk' makes one a jerk as well. LOL.

For years I heard how much George O'leary was a jerk. But, everytime I talked to him he was a gentleman and very funny. Ones perception of someone thru a 'reputation' isn't always true.

And, Gator fans are only jerks when their team is winning. Sort of like when UCF is winning, then us fans are jerks. See how that works? LOL.

No official announcement yet of Chip Kelly. Probably a secret bidding war going on between UCLA, Tennessee, and the Gators.

Funny how I see everyone is breaking out their Maimi Hurricane clothing. People I didn't ever know they were Cane fans are now all of a sudden cane fans. Jerks. Winners make people jerks. Its all fun. Sport's rivalries bring out the worse and best in people.

I saw one theory on twitter that Chip Kelly is waiting to the end of the 2017 season as he is still getting paid by the 49'ers. if he took a job then that is less money he would make. Supposedly he needs to wait until end of season. Saw article back in early this year that he is getting paid 6+ million a year to do nothing. if he gets another job then the difference needs to be paid, or something to that. Who knows.

He is a much better fit at UCLA ... he made the correct decision

I don't think frost will go to Florida and I don't think there are any better options.
