Mark Richt resigned early Sunday morning. From the rumors on the net, the 3 top preferred candidates, who are
from the UM family, are:

#1- Mario Cristobal (has a big buyout but is very successful in Oregon)

#2- Manny Diaz (has he already signed the contract for Temple? Can he rescind his commitment?)

#3- Butch Davis (will he bolt to UM if given the opportunity?)

I don't really care about the first two choices. My concern is Butch Davis and if he's committed at staying at FIU.

They hired Manny Diaz. Losing Butch would have hurt badly. Phew.

While I didn't think it was possible for scUM to reach out to Butch and take him away from FIU, I must admit that I got a little nervous as the day went on and the ucg twitterverse continued to express support of Butch.

Ultimately, it would have meant ucg coming to Butch and there would be too much pride for that to happen.
Butch openly lobbied hard after the dismissal of Al Golden and ucg wanted nothing to do with him. Jumping on Mark as soon as Georgia dismissed him.

So maybe I shouldn't of worried at But, when news broke that scUM had spent 4 million to hire a Coordinator at 10:30 PM I was able to sleep like a baby... not really, babies not sleep. SO lets say, sleep like a 7 year old that spent the whole day at the pool.

Can we take this scare and finally give butch what he needs to elevate FIU closer to UCF?
Lets complete the stadium and continue showing our City we mean Business!!
