Not yet. Give it a couple hours then maybe 

 

Don't go past 4, though; you've got to head to the hospital after that.

I have to disagree here. I fully believe if Oregon wouldn't have thought the Auburn RB was down when he actually landed on the an Oregon defender and they would have finished the tackle, Auburn wouldn't have been able to be in position to kick the game winning field goal. It was a low scoring game even though both teams had a bunch of yards. I think Kelly and his style of offense could be successful. If you remember Nick Saban absolutely hates Kelly's style of fast paced offense and it's because it is extremely hard to stop!

 

My point is that their vaunted offense struggled against auburn in a single game. Helfrichs Kelly built squad playing his offense got squashed by an SEC caliber OSU club in the title game. I look on that and wonder how successful it will be in the meat grinder that is the SEC. I could see it working well. But I could also see them getting man handled. I'm not sure, it will be fun to watch if it happens for sure

You can't accurately judge something with one data point, though. Over the course of his career, he's been very, very successful. Auburn, Ole Miss, MSU, Florida and (now) Bama have all had varying degrees of success running a spread offense (or using spread principles) in the SEC.

I used to know who the sock was. It's just a bit of fun.  There are a few accounts who are socks of regular members who are just here to add some fun to things.  If they were causing a problem they'd be banned. 

 

 

I don't have a problem with it.  I just think it's hilarious people treat these posters like the oracle from the Matrix when it's just another HB poster that added a second account.

Welcome Home, Son? Wait, are you Larry Frost? Talk about some inside info!

 

Also, that looks pretty good.

Well, the alternative would be sans serif, so probably that.

It's the latter.

 

Schools are large businesses, and they're making multi-million dollar investments in these coaches. The people who make these decisions are entrusted to responsibly take care of that money. If they were to be so loose-lipped that the average Joe on the Street can know the inner workings of the hiring process, they would be fired.  That goes for anyone on their staff entrusted with actual knowledge of the situation. 

 

No guy on a message board, no journalist - and ESPECIALLY no journalist who isn't a local beat writer (like Dan Wolken, Andy Staples, Brett McMurphy, etc) - knows which coaches have been approached, what the negotiations are like, who is being added to or crossed off a list. 

 

All of that is fantasy. It's speculation intended to entertain.  People on message boards claim to be "insiders" because they get off on pretending to be important.  Journalists create candidate lists out of what they think the fans want to see or purely out of their own imagination because their job is to get you to read their article.  They don't know anything. 

 

The next time you hear someone prattling on about having inside information, remember the days between when Bo was fired and Riley was hired.  Remember all the lists, all the speculation, all the insiders telling us who was on Eichorst's list, who was being talked to, bap bap bap. 

 

And then remember that not one insider so much as mentioned Mike Riley's name. 

 

Well that is way to logical to post around these parts!

Very much so. But they all fall into the same power spread philosophy that Urban Meyers OSU team does. As does Scott frost, I think, still watching all his team's games. 

 

Chip Kelly does not. But he might change that in recognition of how the SEC is.  I'm excited to see it if he does. But his and helfrichs unwillingness to do so hurt them in the title games and based off comments from frost had an effect on how he designed his offense and team philosophy.

Gosh Knapp, I feel stupid now. I read the megathread to get all of the facts about hiring SF. You make it sound like a lot of silliness that only a coaching search circus can create.

Just talked to my UF Alumni contact at work - pretty tied into the UAA still at Florida. Saying that Florida was extremely interested in Frost, but seemed uninterested right away, then you saw the huge pivot to Chip which has picked up the steam over the past couple of days. Says that Frost camp has very recently reached back out after the Tennessee job opened to show interest which has thrown a wrench into their plans moving forward with Chip. Didnt think that it would stop them from going with Chip but thought it was interested. Could just be for additional leverage for Frost to use as well depending on his plans.

This is true; I would argue that Auburn (post-Cammy Cam) and Ole Miss are closer to Oregon than, say, OSU, but you still make a good point.

Frost listed as #3 on Tennessee's Hot List according to an article from their Rivals' site but the update from yesterday says that "multiple sources from various camps" say Frost is headed to Lincoln.

That looks like a handout from a funeral.

I can't help but laugh, that's pretty good one and I can actually see it now.

 

The unfunny part is that it sure seems fitting, considering what has happened to most coaches that have come here lately?

There is no alternate universe in which to find the answers, but I wonder how much the cancelled UCF games added to SF's future paychecks? Georgia Tech might have been one of the toughest tests on their schedule (and would have surely bumped them from the Ranking that they now enjoy - had they lost). Even if they were not losses, those two cancelled games are games in which no UCF players were injured, which paid unknown dividends down the road. While those two hurricanes caused a lot of financial damage, they likely resulted in quite a windfall for Mr. Frost & Co.

Folks, 

 

This is your like every 4 day reminder to be civil to one another. Attack the message, not the messenger. If you want someone to stop doing something, the best way to do so is to ignore it. So instead of reacting to off topic posts, don't attend to them. 

 

Additionally, please try to keep the conversation focused on Frost as much as possible. We've given quite a bit of leeway, but it's drifting hard again. 

How dare you try to introduce civility into our anarchy!

It's from the show 'Community'. I can't remember why Allison Brie is on the floor with Chevy Chase, but it doesn't matter since that was the darkest timeline.

I think he was on fire, but its been awhile since i've seen the episode. Great show though. Childish Gambino is a personal hero.
