    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.
    Other than stealing CNS away, they probably couldn't have hired better, if this is true.

    He will bring instant offense and excitement and it'll be fun to watch. All we'll have to worry about is the SECCG most years and I like our chances against this type of offense.

    This will be a home run hire for UF fans...fun and gun part 2

    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...

    He won't have the success he had at Oregon unless he realizes defense is not optional

    Pretty sure he meant IOW.

    Alabama is 2- and 3-deep all over the place with full grown, meaner-than-he!! men. It's almost not fair making college kids play against them. Any Saban-coached team is going to be deep as he!! with recruits that have elite size, strength and experience at their position and they are going to play with incredible physicality.

    If I'm being honest, I would say this was the absolute best hire Florida could make. I used to go to fish duck and study his playbook. Great stuff.

    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.
    I think this is potentially a Very, Very GOOD hire for UF. I expect he will win a LOT of games, and produce some very exciting offensive teams......
    BUT.... I think its not a "Great" hire for a few reasons.

    First off, Kelly is an "odd bird". And as we saw with Denise Fraudchione and Mike Price, you get a LOT more "Space" to BE an "odd bird" in places like the MWC or the PAC-12 North (and Ditto for the NFL) than you do in the SEC. Maybe that will be an issue for him, maybe not.

    He'll have excellent resources and good/above-average facilities at UF. But NO ONE has more resources or better facilities than Oregon a/k/a "Nike U". Scott Stricklin won't be handing him the same Blank Checks that Phil Knight was handing him at Oregon.

    He also won't have the NZAA "Cover" at UF that he enjoyed (and abused) at Oregon. There is no "Phil Knight" at Florida that can scare the living bee-jeezus out of the NZAA just by making a phone call. If Kelly got busted at Oregon DESPITE being protected by THE Richest and most Powerful booster in all of College Sports... Well...... Lets just say, the NZAA doesn't exactly hand out 18-Month "Show Cause" orders for nothin'......

    In the same vein, Kelly's Oregon teams seemed to have a lot of trouble with player misbehavior, discipline, legal issues, suspensions, etc. And that's just what we know about Publicly. Again, the SEC isn't the PAC-12 North. He'll be under a LOT more scrutiny in Gainesville. AND that's not even taking into account the existing "cultural" issues he will inherit at UF - like 10 starters suspended this year for criminal problems.....

    As great as his teams were.... for a while... lets not forget - his (arguably) best Oregon team was basically shut down by aub's mercenaries in the 2010/11 BCS NC game. The FEW times in his Oregon career that he faced decent defenses, his teams were usually held under 20 points. And his defenses seldom held good opponents under 20. I suspect that will change at UF - still - "it is what it is".

    He wasn't known as a recruiter was he?

    In state talent for Oregon compared o in state talent for Florida is drastically different, though.
