Is this the same SEC Country that reported earlier that Arkansas is hosting LSU at 11 for homecoming?

https://www.seccountry.com/florida/report-oregon-coach-willie-taggart-contacted-florida-opening-real-possibility

That's what I would do...hire a coach whose Oregon team is 5-4 for the season and may end up 6-6. I doubt Florida will go this direction. Anyone know what Taggart's buy-out is at Oregon?

They can do better than Taggert. I'd go for Mullen if I were them.

Huge mistake if they hire Taggart and doesn't make much sense IMO. Makes me think maybe they see having diversity would help recruit. Maybe not, just trying to figure that one out.

Pay millions on a buyout mid season for Taggart is a head scratcher.

I think Taggart is a great coach, and it keeps UF away from Frost/Campbell.

Looking at his resume, he did turn WKU and South Florida around. He made progress each year. He is from Florida and seems to be respected down there. I think Florida could do worse.

I'm not saying that they haven't contacted  him, but this is the time of year coaches names get leaked, and raises are given to keep them. It's silly season and Florida just kicked it off.

It would be a good hire. He is the Scott Frost from last season. USF is undefeated and in the top 20 thanks to his players. He is a great recruiter and deep ties to the state of Florida. His buyout is only around 3 mill. He would be a good fit. I don't think Oregon is his best spot with his recruiting ties in the state of Florida.

He's talking about Taggart being the hot coaching name last season, as Frost is this year.

Not hard to recruit to Florida, speed falling on your head like coconuts, he's a jerk that everybody loves to hate. To me Petrino would be perfect for Florida.

Petrino to Tennessee instead of Florida, in my opinion. With Jurich getting canned, I think Petrino might be more interested in leaving Louisville. It would give him reason to do so. If Jurich was kept on as the AD, then I think Bobby wouldn't leave Louisville.

Well we know what opinions are like.  ;D

I agree on Petrino looking to get out of Louisville.

The previous Oregon coach wrecked that program.
It's his first year
He did very well in Florida, has a current coach on cruise control at the program he built
Oh and Oregon has been it by injury bug, i believe they are playing a freshman QB be of injury as well. 

More to the story than to judge a coach on Juan first year at a new job

No, I mean he built up USF like Frost has done with UCF. He was a big hire and big name last year like Frost is this year. That's why I didn't understand why the guy was on him about this year at Oregon. Helfrich wrecked that prove.  But to be fair, I'm not sure what Chop left behind.

Florida doesn't have much to lose. If he doesn't work out they will fire him in a couple of years. Then they will probably follow him to Church and when he professes to being a sinner they'll fire him under the morals cause with no buyout.

Those suggesting Petrino leaves Louisville this year are on to something. He wants out before the program collapses (again). Florida, Tennessee, A&M, Auburn. Lots of schools that seem to have no problem taking him on, and then others who might consider it given that he is a successful coach.
