    I think this is a really good get for UF. He's a notoriously hard worker and a great offensive mind. He notoriously hates recruiting though, and there are some good recruiters in that state...

    We have been talking about the weak coaching in the SEC for the last few years. Looks like the pendulum is about to start swinging in the other direction. Good for the SEC - not so good for Alabama. Not that these guys are necessarily better than Saban (they are not), but recruiting in the south is about to get a lot harder.

    Somebody will have to do without those 4 and 5 stars.

    I don't think it will change much. Maybe more competition for skill guys and dbs but CNS won't lose a wink of sleep over this.

    Awbarn. They have more head to head battles with UF than we do for kids typically.

    FWIW, for the new folks - we don't allow rumors regarding Alabama, but do allow rumors about other SEC programs, within reason. The guy I know from UF has been rock solid from day one - he's plugged in. IOQ I'd bet my own money on this one if I were a betting man...
    So you're saying there's a chance for me to send in my final bid for the job?.

    So that is a win for us then. I like it when our competition takes a hit to their recruiting.

    Real losers will be FSU, Miami and the directional schools that UF had lost some ground to.

    It'll affect Georgia and UT the most in the SEC.

    Wonder how the UT fans are feeling about this???

    We've picked up our share of top ranked receivers and db's from Florida...I imagine CMR is trying to clamp down on Miami as we speak...could be harder to plunder that state for all of us -- with Kiffin, Strong, and UCF etc. doing well....

    They are spreading the wealth so maybe none of them will be the powerhouses they once were.

    The SEC coaching tree needs this hire along with several other "big name" hires at other schools. The coaching in our league has fallen behind the B1G and ACC IMO.

    I know some of you think it is not a good hire but not sure why. In his 4 yrs at Oregon he was 46-7 and went to a BCS Bowl every year and was 19 seconds away from having a NC. You can bring up his NFL career but UF is not the NFL. Would be a great hire for UF and the SEC.
