    Mike Diaz made that point a couple of days ago. Said maybe the reason we're not hearing any noise around Napier is that the deal is already done. Question becomes, who has the better sources, Diaz or the "90% to FU" folk.

    I’d be mildly shocked if FU pulled out all the stops to hire a sunbelt coach.

    Why? Florida has the same issues we have trying to find an available coach, there aren't many. I'm telling you, this whole "sunbelt" thing is going to bite us in the ass. You can either coach or you can't. Time will tell.

    I think in our case, it more than sunbelt. I think there's a real aversion to hiring the guy from "Louisiana" to some boosters.

    From a high school in Ga., with coaching stops at Clemson and Alabama (2x). He’s not a coonass and probably has never been on a shrimp boat, so what’s the problem?

    I was going to say, you don't have to dig too far to find out this guy isn't Ed Orgeron. If this is the case it is pretty sad.

    Yep, some folks are ate up with boudin stuffer envy for some reason. That wont age well if Nape goes to FU for a paltry $5-6M/yr and ends up owning our $12M/yr B12 savant.

    It could be said that Riley consistently does less with more.
