LAMM AT LARGE: Tall order for Billy Napier at Florida

Background

Why would Billy Napier take the Florida football job?

Doesn’t he know Gainesville is where coaches go to bury their careers?

Doesn’t he know Georgia and Alabama aren’t planning to bolt from the SEC to join the Sun Belt Conference. Or the ACC, for that matter.

Doesn’t he know 10 victories aren’t enough?

Doesn’t he know Gator Nation wants a coach who’s both an assassin and has a charming personality? (I’m told he doesn’t but I must reveal I wouldn’t know him if he walked into my house.)

Oh, it’s the money, stupid. My bad.
