UF Gators Hire Will ‘Captain F-Bomb’ Muschamp


Well, this new hire didn’t take long.

It seems a tad soon, considering Coach Meyer retired only four days ago. That doesn’t seem like enough time to contact and interview the best head coaches for a program some consider one of the premier programs in the country. Does it?

As recently as this afternoon there were rumors flying around the internet that OU coach Bob Stoops was finalizing the deal to take the UF job. Which appeared to be rumors and propaganda, and are now proven to be.

What this hire tells me is that UF isn’t as premier a coaching job as some would have us believe. Not even their beloved former offensive coordinator, Dan Mullen, would consider leaving MSU to return there.
It is possible that the coaches the UF folks were interested in didn’t want to talk to them. Still, hiring a defensive coordinator as head coach, from 5-7 Texas, a man known by many as ‘Captain F-Bomb,’ seems to be a reach. One that I’m not certain the die hard Gator fans are going to embrace.

This is all made even more interesting by the fact that two days before Meyer retired at UF, Texas head coach Brown cleaned house, with his offensive coordinator and two assistants “retiring,” but not ‘Captain F-Bomb.’ Although Brown essentially threw his coaches and players under the bus near the end of October.

‘Captain F-Bomb’ had been the HCIW(head coach in waiting) at UT for a year or two, but with no clear indication of when the $5,161,500 a year Brown would retire.

With all that going on, I can understand the ‘Captain’ accepting a head coaching job.
What I can’t understand is UF hiring a coordinator with no HC experience, for a premier college football program.

Unless, of course, that is if UF isn’t all that some report it to be.
Or is it?

I have a strange feeling that a bunch of high school athletes verbally committed to UF will be getting some phone calls from other head coaches.

For me, being an OU Sooner fan, knowing with certainty that coach Bob Stoops isn’t leaving and the morass at UT is growing…well, I’m gonna party like it’s 1993.

  1. The melt down at Burnt Orange Nation is fun to watch. Over 400 comments in less than two hours.

    Here is a real gem:

    because Muschamp could have left for Florida even if they had been in perfect agreement about everything. To suggest otherwise is to fail to understand that Florida and Texas are probably the two best jobs in the country right now.

    BLAAAAAAAH-HAAAAAH-HAAA!

  2. interesting move on UF’s part. Now, the question is whether he will bring the 7 on 7 type B-12 offense scheme to the SEC. Hearing Major Applewhite to be OC

    • The Captain knows nothing about offense.
      There was a Gainesville newpaper story last night saying Applewhite was staying at TU.
      Talked to a guy yesterday who is a Gator fan and he said the inside word was Meyer’s health problems were greater than most know. He will remain in Gainesville, perhaps an insurance policy…a little shoulder peeping, perhaps.

  3. Nuke, in case you don’t know, the photo on the wall behind B&B is from a play that lives in OU legend in a win over the Whorns.
    Here is THE PLAY.
