    When I was growing up in Pensacola, my role models were men who had served in World War II. My Dad, my uncles, and my teachers; those fortunate enough to come home. My Scout troop was on a Navy Base and two of my Scout Masters died in aircraft "mishaps." My high school class has two names on the Wall. My first cadet commander in AFROTC didn't come back from Vietnam. Four members of my pilot training class died after graduation in "peacetime training accidents". Men (and now women) who choose to serve and offer the last full measure of devotion in defending the finest, noblest, and most just nation in history. Today is the day to remember their sacrifice and thank God for raising up such heroes.

      There's a difference between having an opinion and just being a troll.

        I've been a lurker on this site since it was formed. I'm a former GSMB member. I finally decided that I should contribute to the site, with $$$ and a few posts. I was born in Gainesville, and have been going to Gator games every year since 1973 (I was an infant). I love the site and I'm happy to be a member. Thanks, Ox!

            Not a she. Cock-n-balls = he (not to mention, DNA). Who cares? Anyone who has a mother, sister, wife, daughter, niece, etc. should care. Where does this crap end?

              You guys sound like a bunch of Tenn fans crying about Lane Kiffen. Except Lane didn't win 2 natty's, 2 sec championships, coach a heisman winner, coach 3 of their best teams in school history, was the best coach in school history and top 10 maybe top 5 coach of all time in all of college football. So what he *****ed up and left and coached a couple felons, he won. He's like that really hot girlfriend most of you never had, it was good while it lasted.
              As far as the program being in the shape it is in today because of him, that's a fcking joke. You think Notre Dame wouldn't swap 2005 with us? What would our resume look like today if we had hired fat Charlie and they got Urban? The only reason our football program is still almost relevant today is solely on what Urban did from 06 to 09. Jeremy Foley is the one who wants UF to be more like Stanford and win the Directors Cup instead of Bama and win National Championships.
              And double fck you guys for making me agree with the PE coach on something.:)

                Well, I can't say I'm surprised at the direction this thread has taken. It's only like the 47th edition with the Gatorzone interview being the only "new " piece. I can kind of understand both sides. Where the Muschamp hire is concerned, when it was done conventional wisdom in the college football community says that it was a good move. I don't fault Foley for making it. I also was not one of the guys that picked apart the 11-2 season and was glad we won that many regardless of how it was done and what future forecasts it conjured up. Now, did he go a year too long with Will? I think absolutely and certainly in this day and time, any bad AD decision, especially in SEC football, will result in immediate or continued vilification.

                Sad to me that so many read this as a failure worthy of change for a guy that has done so many great things and IMO will make many more before all is said and done. As for his comment about the difficulty of the decision to cut Will loose, I agree with those that the difficulty likely refers to the buyout $ (which he orchestrated in part, I believe, due to the early success) and the personal relationship. I also agree that it was an easy decision based on the final years' results. Bottom line is that it is done, he has hired a guy that has done some really good things in terms of recruiting and programmatically thus far. The rub will be the success on the field and I hope the minions can be patient for a year or two until the roster improves (and I believe it will).

                One thing that has not shown up in the thread thus far is, thankfully, the dismissing of the success of the non-football sports under Foley's watch. Coming from an admitted "Football Head" (very old term) and old HS AD, it is impressive what has been accomplished, due in no small part to the HC hires Foley has made. They are important programs within the scope of the entire athletic program from a PR standpoint among other things. Don't kid yourself and think they aren't.

                Lastly, I would say that along with the whole facilities issue (which seems to be headed on the right track, but is some years behind by some), returning to the days of sell outs at BHG presents a great challenge. Certainly a return to winning and consistently competing for conference and NC's will take care of part of it, but perhaps more importantly solving the problem of not only getting the students in the stands to do something other than text or take photos looms large. If Foley finds a way to fix this along with a return to winning, he will deserve the appropriate kudos. Personally I think this problem (attendance) is something many schools are dealing with and the fact that ticket costs as well as traveling expenses and accommodations nowadays make the problem even more difficult to solve.

                  I continue to hope in one hand and sh!t in the other. So far since about 2008, I’ve just got several handfuls of sh!t. That’d be great if I was Zambo.

                          Tebow's having the last laugh here. How many guys get to win the Heisman and win two national titles, lead a team in the NFL playoffs, play co-host on a college football TV set AND try out for the bigs?

                          Uh, no one until Tim.

                                          Strange... that article didn’t bother to mention the reason for “running up the score” vs msu...

                                          The previous year, msu beat UF and the fans were throwing beer bottles while UF tried to exit the field. An assistant took one to the skull and I think needed stitches. SOS didn’t like that too much. Next year, SOS told the UF fans not to retaliate, promising us he would handle the retaliation on the scoreboard. The HBC reiterated his reason for that last TD after the game.

                                          Funny how agendas can create selective memories. Screw every last one of those media types who either didn’t do their homework or purposely omitted the important facts.

                                            Our community sprung up when the Gatorsports message board was shut down in the summer of 2014. We pride ourselves on offering Gator-biased, yet critical discussion among people of all different backgrounds. We are working every day to make sure our community is the best Gator message board you will find.
