08:27 AM ET 11.29 | According to a report, Florida defensive line coach Dan McCarney will be named as the new head coach at North Texas early this week. UF coach Urban Meyer said after Saturday night's 31-7 loss at Florida State he was unaware of McCarney's possible departure. A Texas paper, however, reported Sunday that a contract is being finalized. McCarney joined the Gators' staff in 2008 after spending a season at South Florida.

Once again the media is breaking a story way too early in an attempt to scoop its competition. Meanwhile, said story is going to cause division in the locker room and a lot of hurt feelings all around, and generally make the coach look like the bad guy.

I am starting to wonder if we are seeing FL crumble. I am not trying to stir the pot but wonder if Meyer's offense will ever work without a super elite dual threat QB. Are we seeing the rats jump off the ship?

DA JEVU? I could have swore I posted on this thread yesterday!

Well, they have quite a stud QB coming in that is a dual threat. Obviously high school success doesn't always translate to college success. I would expect Meyer to make some big changes this off season. They lost a ton of talent so I think it is a little early to start writing their obituary considering they are 7-5.

This is like the movie Groundhog Day all over again, all over again, all over again....

I think you can win there. Great area for recruiting, etc. Todd Dodge was a disaster, way over his head, and should have never been hired. He needed to stay in high school. Gus Malzahn he is not.

As much as it would delight me to see that happen to such a stellar human being as Urban Meyer, I doubt it. It simply looks like a coach trying to move up in the world.

Thought I'd throw in an "Airplane" reference in honor of the passing of the great Leslie Nielsen.

I have been in a cave for the last four days and did not hear about that. Sad news. You have just ruined my day.

If we are lucky enough McCarney will take Addazio as his offensive coord.

Pachyderms live in caves? I did not know that!!

Sorry to ruin your day. It's on CNN if you want to read it.

FIRE STEVE ADDAZIO!!!

November 29, 2010  09:42 AM ET

Just because Meyer says something at a press conference does not necessarily make it so. Thank goodness that this season is over.

Did Alex Smith run as much as Tebow when Meyer coached him at Utah?

It seemed he was more known for his passing than running.

Same with Chris Leak.

Not like Meyer only started winning once he recruited Tebow... he gained his first notoriety coaching Utah and help Smith be a first round draft pick.

All those "Fire Randy Shannon" posts worked for SVT. This is worth a shot!
(although, for the record, I don't think he should be fired, just demoted)

I didn't know that Nielsen passed away either...

... he was quite a funny man.

Did 'Lloyd Carr Must Go' work for the Michigan fans?

McCarney has done a great job in the past with developing the D-line. If this is true, I wish him well.

But your going after an assistant instead of the HC.
