“Sometimes there’s nothing left to do but go and drink.”

I guess that’s a natural response when Chip Kelly turns down your job offer and you’re forced to turn to Dan Mullen.

Now, if only Dellenger can get the story on Greg McGarity wanting to replace Richt with Mullen and being told to forget it.

    My neighbor says if the gaytards beat the gumps and the Dawgs beat FU and then Bama in the SEC Championship game, that should eliminate Bama from the playoffs. That’s always a good thing as it’s tough beating Bama twice in the same year.
    I try not to think that far into the season. Ultimately it doesn’t matter. Just beat the shit out of the next team up.
    Get after their ass.

      Even better is a two loss bama team that doesn’t make it to atlanta or anywhere else save for a “meaningless bowl game.” They can’t get to 2 losses if they don’t drop a first one. On the other hand a bammer loss has consequence of us wearing the No. 1 crown in week 4 and beyond. I’d rather not. But if bama does lose they’ve got a very tough road to Atlanta. Plus the gators would probably be favored (either by the betting line or by punditry) to win the Cocktail Party, which is preferable than going down there as double digit favorites.

      Hard to have a preference here so my strong tendency here is to simply pull for the meteor and know that even if there is no impact crater in Gainesville, its still kind of a win win either way. Some group of people I don’t like will have a sad.

      Fuck all those mf’ers.

      Am I at least allowed to look forward to Vandy and dropping a hundo on them?

    I need to bookmark this slobber piece for end of the season when people are once again wondering why they hired this goof ball.

    I found it an interesting read many facts were new to me.

    Most importantly McGoofy did not get to hire Mullen.

      If DM had been hired, our new football facilities would be at Lake Oconee.

      Anyone remember or know how close McGoofy got to pulling the trigger on Mullen? Was there a phone call or was Mullen just on a shortlist until the boosters had their way.

        McGarity was a patsy. He didn’t make any decisions.

        Kirby had the job before Richt was fired, man. C’mon.

        Kirby is cut-throat. I would not be shocked or surprised to know he had been massaging and glad-handing decision-makers about being HC since the day he turned down Richt’s offer to come be DC.

    I’m prejudiced against him – but to be fair, he has the gators playing ball. He had Mississippi State playing ball. He is may be dorky (that could be how he is played by the media). This year and next year will tell us what he is – and he did move to the “easier” side of the conference – though he might have done it at the wrong time.

    “the news can’t break until after church …” – that’s funny.
    Honestly, Stricklin seems like a decent guy (at least the way the article paints him).

    “There they were, the people responsible for one of the most important jobs in the Sunshine State—hiring the Gators head football coach—sipping on an adult beverage at a Gainesville bar on a random Tuesday…”

    “Sipping on an adult beverage” sounds better than the more likely “nursing a Pink Panty Pulldown”.

    Mullen was the 3rd choice and really the only guy that would take the job. The article tries to paint a picture that he has resurrected the program, but watch how little support he has after Bama destroys them and then UGA finishes them off in Jacksonville.

    He’s been whispering in Emory Jones’ ear and coaching him up for years. Can’t wait to see how that works out.

    Perfect! I can see it now, “Well I was drunk when I hired him.”

  17. honestly, my one take away from this is that if I were a gator that loved Mullen, I’d be super pissed that Stricklin almost didn’t call him because he didn’t want to piss off MS State fans.

    Imagine if our AD in 2015 had been a former Bammer who called everybody else BUT Kirby because he didn’t want to piss off Bama fans by taking their star DC? I’d be furious and would want that guy fired. But maybe that’s just me.

  19. Not that I’m crying in my own beer about what Mullen has accomplished (or not accomplished) at Florida, but . . . man, if they’d hired Scott Frost only for him to belly-flop as bad there as he’s done in Lincoln, what a three-popcorn-bag carnival of fuckuppery that would’ve been to watch.

    That article just reminded me that there’s lots of things that happen in Gainesville on a Saturday that you don’t want to be discussed on Sunday morning.
