    Spurrier says no?

    Just heard on the Herd that he's taken his name off the list. I hope he has his eyes on UNC. Id love to see them pummel cryami EVERY year :lol:

    His next coaching job will be the Dolphins or the Longhorns.

    DaytonBuck I've always liked them

    Chris Leak and all the talent they have coming back, I'm suprised he didn't take it. He'd get a free pass for years there for being not Zook.

    contrary to what some people are saying....mainly the media....spurrier was not actually wanted as the coach....

    florida has had their eyes facing west for some time now...

    Chow, Meyer, Stoops or Other? I personally think Chow would be a nice fit.

    can you imagine the combination of local florida recruits with the cali recruits chow has contacts with. yikes.

    plus it would be kickass to see sanchez decommit :lol:

    disclaimer to USC fans: shut up :lol:

    Urban Meyer-I think he is almost as good as gone from Utah if Florida offers him.

    chow would be a great fit, but there are still questions about if he even wants a head coaching job....we will find out on this one...

    meyer has close ties to the florida a.d. as he was the ad at utah and hired urban away from b.g.....thats a big factor imo....

    Florida FANS wanted Superior, but the administration didn't. Apparently he didn't leave on too good of a terms, but they had to at least offer the job to him. Rumor I heard is that he put such ridiculous conditions on UF that they had no choice but to say no. For example, he asked that they sign him for 5 years, but have to guarantee that he'll be the highest paid coach in CFB, then after the 5 years are up, UF had to guarantee that they'd hire his son, Steve Jr. as the head coach. No program will agree to those terms no matter how good the ole ball coach is.

    I am shocked that Spurrier turned down the job........I don't buy any rumors that Florida didnt want him or he wasnt their first choice...anyone who believes that is a fool....they sucked before he was the coach and after he left, they have struggled....they would take him back in a heartbeat.

    Maybe Spurrier is done with coaching or is this a ploy for a bigger contract?

    Whoever the coach is next will be in a great position to succeed, the recruiting base and the fact he will follow Zook doesnt hurt either.

    Norm Chow is in a nice position to get a bidding war going between Florida and Washington.

    I wonder if U-Dub's getting Gilbertson to 'resign' is because they want to go after Chow before somebody else does. It's hard to believe that man hasn't had a head coaching job in Division 1-A yet.

    methomps an imbecility, a stupidity without name

    Chow isn't thrilled about the extra-curricular stuff that goes with being a head coach (gladhanding donors, extensive recruiting, lying to JT's recruits, etc.), and I don't know that Washington is ready to go the OC route when it just failed with Gilby. They'll likely prefer someone with HC experience. Of course, the new Chancellor (or President, can't remember) is the guy who hired Saban at LSU. He is very hands-on, and may surprise everyone.

    I don't think the SEC would be a good fit for Chow.
