re: Florida stealing MSU AD - bgator85
I was very impressed with his press conference. Talked about his love of Mississippi State but that this was an opportunity he couldn't pass up. Believes it is the top AD job in the country....

re: Best Baseball Stadiums - bgator85
We will never get mentioned among the top stadiums, but glad to see that a major part of the current master plan is to address the baseball stadium. These renderings are just conceptual, but it calls for shade structure, club seats, second level concourse and new player amenities. [img]http:...

re: McIllwain is 1-7 vs. ranked teams, 0-5 the last 5 games - bgator85
[quote]Was Ole Miss, TN and UGA not ranked last year? [/quote] UGA was ranked in the Coaches not AP. I'm guessing the stat includes Colorado State losses, considering McElwain is 13-5 as the Gator coach. ...

re: SEC teams who never schedule decent P5 OOC games. - bgator85
[quote]I've never understood the whole "Florida won't leave their state" argument. Why should they go to the expense of travelling farther, and deprive the fans of in state rivalries, just so they can say the "traveled out of state"?[/quote] It doesn't make a whole lot of sense, but I'm sure we w...

re: MSU Boards are saying Stricklin has taken the Florida Job - bgator85
I think it was pretty close to being a done deal once UF went back with a second offer. Probably have to take care of some formalities in the approval process before it goes official. ...

re: Clarion Ledger confirms Stricklin to UF rumor - bgator85
[quote]Florida sees him for what he is and he'd probably do a good job playing as a puppet while Foley still pulled the strings. [/quote] Foley is not going to be pulling the strings, his role is being overblown. He's taking an emeritus position, just like retiring school presidents. Retire, but...

re: Clarion Ledger confirms Stricklin to UF rumor - bgator85
[quote]Marketing is really good, facility improvement has been exceptional. You can only do so much at MSU. Three different sports have been #1 in the polls in the past two years - at Mississippi State. [/quote] He will be expected to maintain UF's status as one of the top overall athletic progra...

re: Clarion Ledger confirms Stricklin to UF rumor - bgator85
[quote]Supposedly they came with 1 mil+ and he turned it down, but I guess they are back with more. [/quote] We offered the UNC AD (which I was not a fan of) somewhere around $1.5 million. Must have been able to get his offer up somewhere close to that as well, that's a lofty pay raise. I'm sure ...

[quote]He's an alumni and married Bailey Howell's daughter, that dude is dug in as deep as it gets. Florida better bring the cash.[/quote] I'm guessing we will at least double his salary, wouldn't be surprised if it is north of $1 million. ...

re: UF Athletic Director rumor - bgator85
[quote]frick.I hope you're joking. What a cheap fricking hire. Thanks UF administratiors [/quote] They aren't looking to go cheap. The UNC AD turned down a $1.5 million offer which would have made him highest paid in the country. I'd be willing to bet any hire is going to demand a lofty pay increas...
