    If it gets us Chip I can handle rolling the dice on Vilma. I agree with you though.

    I'm sure Vilma was just talking, but that at least proves that Chip is interested or there has been contact... :gfa:

    Just how clenched are the buttholes of our SEC posters at the thought of Chip getting the Florida job? Answer: very clenched.

    He’s not near the coach Urban was/is, so not very. Sucks for some, sure, but I doubt Bama/UGA lose much sleep over it.

    Yeah, pre-UF Urban was a bit of an unknown at a large program.

    You know what you're getting with Chip.

    I dunno. Everyone seems to agree Frost could win big at UF.

    I remember when Urban was hired; the consensus was it was a gamble and no one knew if running the spread every down would work in the SEC, and especially people doubted if he could win with Chris Leak running an option-based offense.

    Both fears were foolish, looking back, but still.

    Serious talk, what is this based on? He put UO in the BCS all 4 years of his tenure there, when there was zero precedent for that program. He recruited players to Eugene, OR, again, with no precedent for them being a power program, and competed on the national stage every year.

    If he’s the hire and he puts good recruiters around himself, as well as finds a solid D, it’s as good of a hire as could be made.

    Urban Meyer is the second best coach of his generation, and one of the all time greats. I really don’t think I need to explain that to UF fans. Florida under Chip will be good I’m sure, but I seriously doubt he’s taking them to Urban-level heights.

    And that’s a fine take, so long as you’re willing to admit that it’s solely opinion. Oregon wasn’t Utah but they were only an occasional blip on the national radar pre-Chip. I’m not saying Chip is as good or better than Urban, but he’s also never been to a program with the builtin advantages of UF or OSU, so I don’t think we’ve seen his best either.

    It’s not like Chip ressurected an Oregon program from the dead, though he certainly took them to new heights. He also struggled against physical teams, and I’m not sure he’s going to be able to consistently compete with Alabama/UGA if he’s not recruiting on their level, or close to it.

    You’re right about the recruiting. #Oregon Ducks fans seem to go back and forth on exactly what Chip is a recruiter. He’s not great at it but UO hindered his recruiting with lesser coaches.

    While I’ve got some of the Ducks attention, I’d be curious to hear how Chip’s tenure compared to your prior history, recruiting-wise.

    I don’t think anyone, except maybe Clemson, is on our level, but UGA is clearly in a much better position than every other team in the conference. Their talent level compared to the rest of the division is already immense, and it’s just going to become even greater after this season and all the coaching changes. They’re set up really, really well to be good for a long time. Maybe Kirby screws it up, but I kinda doubt it.

    Oregon lost by 3 on a last second fg against Auburn and slowed down Cam better than anyone else that season but obviously couldn’t handle the physicality

    Oregon was a middle of the pack P12 team prior to chip. We had the 1994 and 2001 team, but we were a 7-5 or 8-4 program. What chip did at Oregon probably won’t be matched in our lifetime.

    Also, our defenses were really good under Chip. The 2012 defense had a lot of guys who are playing in the NFL.

    The 2009 (I️ think) Stanford game was probably the most infuriating game I’ve ever watched. Toby Gerhart could not be stopped.

    Yeah I don't think there is any doubt he would be highly successful at a program with better access to talent. If the Chip we get (hypothetical) is still the same guy who was at Eugene.

    I've always been annoyed by the reaction to that title game in terms of Oregon v. an SEC defense. I would be a lot more annoyed if I were an Oregon fan.
