I watched it. I'm just glad UFs season is over. I'm ready to move on to next year. We can't tackle, can't make a decent drive, can't avoid a turnover when we're deep in our territory. Couldn't believe one of the calls to run a wildcat in the middle of one of franks half way decent drives.

As far as coach goes, through all of this. Mullen is my choice for coach. He's done ok with a mediocre squad at MS st. He's got good history with UF. He's an SEC man. The rumblings day frost is as good as gone to NB Everyone should take a moment to write their congressman and tell them to bring Mullen back to FLORIDA!

But that's just football and that's just this year. The basketball team and their Russian could actually beat duke tonight. See what I did there.

Stolen off the internet:


Breaking News : University of Florida parts ways with Dan Mullen.

Unable to secure a national championship within 10 minutes of being named head coach, the University of Florida has decided to buy out Mullen's $500 million contract. Sources say donors were unhappy with Mullen's performance since being named head coach and just didn't click with them or the program. The University of Florida wishes Mullen well in his future victories over the Gators while head coach at a better school with a better football program.

God it's just too close to home, but that's damn funny. Apparently Tennessee found their panacea. Frost declined even to speak with Florida. I don't think he was just playing hard to get. I think he loves his team and loves Orlando. I hope he stays and becomes their saban.

Here is an interesting twitch:

Chip Kelly told ESPN's Shelley Smith the following Monday: "I was open-minded to everything, but I was never offered the Florida job. We never got into contract negotiations."

Chip Kelly's deal to become UCLA's head coach will save the 49ers approximately $7.5 million, according to a source familiar with his contract situation.

"Chip did the 49ers a solid," the source told NBC Sports Bay Area.

The 49ers fired Kelly at the conclusion of the 2016 season after he served just one year of his four-year, $24 million contract. The 49ers' future financial commitment to Kelly is offset by the contract he signed with UCLA.

UCLA on Saturday announced the agreement of a five-year, $23.3 million contract with Kelly. The school also announced a $9 million "reciprocal buyout," which has no impact on the 49ers' payments to Kelly. The reciprical buyout refers to the compensation required if UCLA fires Kelly or he leaves the school early for another job.

Silly season on the coaching carousal. Guess we will find out after Saturday's games on where the Jimbo Fisher/Scott Frost/Sumlin/Taggart/and-more sweepstakes end up.

Never had to deal with coach turnover with George O'leary so pardon me as I'm not use to this.

Scott Frost interview on the radio this morning with Mike Bianci sounded like a farewell speech.

Jimbo Fisher refuses to answer questions but said will make a decision after FSU Saturday game. Possible Texas A&M.

Tennessee is left hanging coachless...

and until UCF can somehow manage to get into a "Power 5" conference .... it will remain a stepping stone job for your Head Ballcoach.

You are also gonna have to learn to read between the lines when coach make statements when asked about other schools pursuing them.

In an article that you posted weeks ago ..... that you used a defense against Frost leaving .... he closed by saying "nothing has been decided" That is nothing more than a CYA ploy and actually means that the coach and pursuing school are deep in negotiations ....... 9 times outta 10 they are gone.

Sorry, I do not wish this on your squad. It is just the reality that UCF finds it'self in. Along with USF for that matter.

Tennessee fires AD. LOL. What a mess.

Looking forward to Conference Championship game tomorrow. Memphis @UCF. Noon kick off. ABC for those not going. Should be another good game.

UCF will be fine with Frost leaving. Can't blame him leaving to his alma mater and $$$

We get 3 million dollar buy out and he ain't leaving the cupboard empty. We should be better next year (knock on wood).

Just gonna suck losing Frost offense play calling in the bowl game. If we win we should be in the Peach bowl against a top ten team.

My mom lives in Knoxville and I talked to her this morning. She said they are seriously looking to rehire Lane Kiffen. That is even funnier!

Tennessee will not eat crow and rehire Kiffin. He's fully capable of treating them like Trump did Romney. There's so many things that could go wrong with that. Meanwhile, his stint at FAU looks better than Tennessee.

Texas A&M officials have approved a 10-year, $75 million contract for Jimbo Fisher, which is the richest deal in college football history in terms of total value,
