Anyhow, second strong source tells me that this wasn't about money and that #FSU did make similar offer. #NolesThe hardest part for me to understand is why he came. The money wasn't stunning. It was an industry standard length. And FSU matched UGA.

Multiple sources have said that this move was not about money, and that Florida State essentially matched the annual offer of $850K from Georgia. Considering the state taxes in Georgia (and the lack of them in Florida), there was not a substantial money difference in the offers.And he is saying the right things, too. Just wondering what about Athens makes it better than Tallahassee.
