    He seems so damn boring but his results are impressive. Good hire.

    Yeah, I don’t get the Mullen hate. When he got to State, they were losing games to UAB, Tulane, and Maine and were probably the worst program in the SEC. He’s turned them into a perennial bowl team.

    It will take some time but we will get behind Mullen. It just seems like such a settle, which it is, after thinking we were getting Chip Kelly.

    The main criticism seems to be 'if he's so good why hasn't anybody else hired him away'

    Not a very convincing argument to me.
    1. He might have really liked it at msu and passed on offers
    2. Schools are awful at picking coaches

    Good hire. Don’t blame Florida fans for feeling a bit underwhelmed after the chip stuff but Mullen can coach football.

    Today has gone well for most SEC teams. UF gets better but they should be most years anyhow. MSU drops off the map again and UT sucks still.

    As long as keeping Shannon isn’t part of the deal, I think UF fans should be happy. He obviously isn’t Chip, but I think he’s better than Frost or Taggart.

    I think Mullen is a dangerous coach with the talent UF can bring in... I wouldn't be upset at all after the last two hires.

    He went hard after PSU job when we hired Franklin and reportedly sucked in the interview. Seems he’s wanted out for a few years and couldn’t land a job.

    He just seems like a McElwain type personality that isn’t going to recruit well for UF standards and won’t be able to fill with all JUCO’s like he did at MSU.

    Kelly was all a smokescreen so we could be polite and allow Mullen to finish his season

    You're looking for intensity, which yes Mullen will bring more of. He's simply a walking piece of shit.

    This will really fire up the great Auburn vs Florida rivalry we used to have. :badasswolf:

    Preferred Taggart due to the guaranteed elite recruiting but overall happy with Mullen. It's a letdown from Kelly and I don't think we ever had a legit shot at Frost with Nebraska in the picture.

    I'd rather have Mullen tbh

    but I'm way lower on Chips ability as a head coach vs the national perception/hype train

  31. I'll take it for sure. Mullen might be an asshole, but who wouldn't be a little moody/edgy when you are constantly surrounded by never-ending fuckin bell ringing. Plus, we're not too far removed that his time as our OC during the Urban/Tebow NC glory days can still be a quality recruiting pitch. And, if possible, can we get Nick Fitzgerald as a package deal? Use the transfer year to heal up, and be Tebow 3.0 (guess Dak would've been 2.0) for a season.

    If Richt didn't get fired, Mullen would probably be our coach. He interviewed both times Miami had an opening and was a finalist both times.

    I get what you are saying but getting one ranked season out of 11 even considering how much he built up Rutgers still doesn't do much for me.

    Miss state and Ole Miss are messing up not going after Larry Fedora. He would work well at either. Biggest thing is being able to recruit kids that can get into school and jucos. Its 1 of the things that hurts him at UNC.
