The one coach who would keep other SEC coaches up at night if he was named coach at Florida is Chip Kelly. I know its a long shot for Arkansas but if I was AD in search of a coach the first call I make is to Kelly's agent, offer him 8-10mil and make him say no.
Kelly doesn't like recruiting, doesn't like the fund raising and rubber chicken circuit, doesn't like the "under the microscope" life of a college coach at a big time institution like UF.  He just wants to coach football and be left alone.  that won't happen at UF or most major jobs.  he would be a better fit at a remote place like he was at Oregon.  Plus he cheated to win there.

I heard Mike Hugedin of Gridironnow.com on the radio yesterday saying he doesn't think Mullen will get Florida job because of burned bridges there before and Scott Stricklin, current UF AD and former Miss st AD, doesn't like him either.

Jeff doesn't think like that though.

He's searching for the next Jim Grobe.

Mullen not easy to deal with.  But the Florida AD knows him.

Frost would make a lot of sense.  Already has started building in state connections.  And he should obviously want this job over Nebraska. 

If Norvell chose Arkansas over Florida, I would see him as dumber than Bielema leaving Wisconsin for Arkansas. 
Florida just fired a coach who made it to back to back SEC Championships. Arkansas would be content with 8 win seasons.  Which would YOU choose?

Arkansas does NOT have a coaching vacancy.

Tennessee gets Gruden. We get Wade Phillips

I mentioned Wade the other day after he was brought up to me by an ex Hog athlete.. he actually knows WP... but Wade is 70 years old, just don't see it...

Florida.  I wouldn't be taking a job to just do enough to stay employed.  I would want to play for and win championships.  Can do that more often at Florida.

UF also would rather lose 50-45 than win 10-7.  Kind of like Hog fans.  They just want someone who can score points.  I'd rather have someone who wins regardless how they do it.

100% correct on FL fans. I think at Arkansas if we actual had a defense that could win 10-7 against quality opponents would get behind that.
