But his quote about talking about the Top 1% kinda rubbed me the wrong way. . . . a bit arrogant.
WIth ALL of that said, Florida is better off without him right now. Key word: RIght now. If you paid attention, you could easily tell he just wasn't himself this year on the sidelines. The guy seemed beaten.
He's definitely on the arrogant side. I agree with that.
But I've gotten to know a lot of coaches (more basketball than football, but nonetheless plenty) and one thing about them, they almost all have a lot of confidence in themselves and what they do. Some play the PR game better than others, but they're a great deal arrogant.
