But he should have recruited harder!  LOL
Spoken like a fanbase that is not in fact that crazy, which is where this started.

I think Steve was awesome and great, a savant and a star. But a fanbase that puts a coach in a hospital with stress doesn't see all that, they see the little bit more that could've been, and then they rue what was missed. Because they're crazy. 

And the face that UF fans are a little more chill, that's fine, probably good. I live near a have-not SEC school, and their irritation at their station might well make them crazier than the Gators.

Ole Miss fans are the best, in my limited experience.  They are there to party, and if the team wins, great, if they lose, fine, they party harder.

They really get their Grove on.

Alright, maybe we're just arrogant instead of crazy.  Especially my age group, whose true fandom happened to coincide with Spurrier's arrival.

I think we have the right HC now.  We're playing meaningful games in late November/December.  We won the East.  If we'd been allowed to play, we would have boat-raced FSU for a 2nd straight year.  

We're a late 4th-quarter fumble and a shoe toss away from being undefeated.  That's a weird sentence out of context.

I think that's a good word for it. It's maybe a hint more detached at times. Like, you look down on an 11-win team that can't score, but you're not trying to give the coach $30 million to get out.

Yawn.   They settled everybody down by not losing the three last games thereby keeping the recruiting class respectable. There’s not much to discuss.

Yeah, unfortunately this is correct. 

They are probably going to have his deal announced in a week or so if they are meeting today.

What if the AD just doesn't offer an extended contract?    Why would he need to?

would make the recruiting in 2022 virtually impossible.

Well no.  But now you're saying "crazy" is synonymous with "stupid."
