    I wonder

    I am really really curious if Daniel Two Gloves ever wakes up and thinks about the opportunity he cost himself and our school by leaving. If you are him what do you think?

    I realize he is making more money now to be fired and coach HS ball than I will ever sniff but I dont think there is a million or so people that will never forgive me either

    Na Florida > Us everyday.

    He wanted to leave 3 years before he left.

    The ironic thing is that Florida could be kicking themselves in the ass 2 years from now if their new coach doesn’t work out.

    Nah, new coaches strength is Don ******* weakness; he loves to recruit and works hard at it. ******* took it for granted that UF, and his name, would recruit itself, a la Notre Dame back in the day. Didn't happen.

    The biggest problem with Dan is he was always too arrogant to realize his weaknesses. So likely he hasn't realized his mistake yet either...

    He is probably still in his echo chamber convinced Florida is all screwed up for removing him go figure?

    If he doesn’t realize how close he came to a magic season then he is an idiot......he truly wrecked the “DOGS” chances at a solid final four football season. Besides the 14 season finale screw up, him leaving that championship caliber team will be be the biggest woulda, coulda, shouda in the history of any team outside of Bama ...........JMHO

    I doubt it. He didn't cost himself anything.

    However If he did want to come back....... I'd fire Leach and hire Mullen in a second.

    He doesn't strike me as a man who does a lot of self reflection. He'll get another big payday either after this upcoming season or the next at a job he probably doesn't deserve and it will be business as usual.

    I doubt it. Regardless how it turned out for him in hindsight, he was so absolutely desperate to get out of here that he was about to leave us to go to Tennessee in the state they were at the time before Florida swooped in at the last minute.

    That's why I don't want him back. A nearly lateral move into a dumpster fire was more appealing to him than staying here and having most likely his best season to date with the loaded roster he'd built. He desperately didn't want to be here, and it wouldn't be any different if we brought him back.

    I think he is happy with his millions and will look to coach somewhere he doesnt have to recruit or deal with bigtime college Boosters.

    You could easily tell he was a very unhappy person last season.

    He cost himself a college playoff appearance. That's about it though.

    Dan only cares about Dan. I doubt we even cross his mind on any given day.

    Oh im not saying he wasnt leaving. Flirting with UT the night before the egg was all it took.

    But he has to realize he missed a chance at what was gonna be the best team in the history of the school bc nobody in the stadium can remember 1941

    He def cost himself a probably historic run. With that team we could have ran Fitz 3 times and punted and been in every single game

    No. He did the right thing. Best chance to win a ship. He failed. Got paid a ton in the meantime.

    I think Dans to much of a narcissist to worry about anything but Dan. I guarantee you he doesn't think twice about us.

    He never intended to stay here very long when he took our HC position. It was a HC position in the SEC, but MSU was only his short term goal as a HC. He just couldn't get that job at a "real football school" (as he had mentioned) as soon as he wanted it or he would have left us earlier .
