    I'm a big fan of Taggart and his philosophy of coaching which stresses that the game is just that and should be fun before anything else. On the other hand, Mullen recruited Aaron Hernandez while he was an assistant at UF previously, and notoriously said to other team members "can you believe this guy was accused of murder?" in a gleeful tone as if it was a sign of how tough of a player he was.

    As a UF alumni, I think FSU made the better coaching hire!

    As a USF alumnus, I would like to present Coach Taggart with this, the Lane Kiffin Award for Honesty and Integrity in Coaching. Unfortunately, Mr. Taggart could not be here to accept this award, as he is currently on a business trip to speak with the athletic director at Oklahoma.

    It’s funny a couple of buddy’s that played with Hernandez say the same thing. Media makes it sound like he was a mess in college, but these guys say he was super nice and never would have expected his outcome. Mullin in my opinion is a good hire, he knows the crazy Gainesville expectations and drama.

    Woops. Sorry

    Meant that Mullen is a safer higher, proven and less chance of being awful but is he an elite coach that will win sec and play for NC?

    Taggart has turned programs around, is an elite recruiter, but hasn’t won as he hasn’t been anywhere to see the full benefit but could be a championship coach

    I’m hopeful that Florida’s ability to bring in recruits will take him to the next level compared to Mississippi. I also realize we have lost some of the reputation of an elite football school..go gators!
