    Is it funny that Applebee's starting for the Outback Bowl?

      You had problems mowing a yard. You should stick to the basics. You can't handle the complexities of "zip ties".

          The irony of this thread as I had this tonight. Wife is out of town for the weekend so I took my son to Disney after I picked him up. Everything was fine and about 10 minutes into our drive home right around the time I got on the 417 the first contraction started. My son at the time was still awake so I should have stopped, but thought they were far enough apart that I could make it no worries. About 15 minutes from my exit the real pain began. The type where you ship and lift hoping it will releave pressure. It went away for a few minutes and then right around the time I got off my exit the ungodly pain started. This is the type where you pray to God to give you another 15 minutes to make it home before you pop. I hit every single red light and the gas started sneaking out. Pulled into my driveway and had a choice to make. Lock the car and run inside safely or grab the snoring kid first and risk crapping in my front yard. I gave him one good check, locked the car, and bolted inside. Thank goodness he didn't wake up to me not being there.

              Optimist vs pessimist vs realist vs practicality. This is allegedly a Gator fan site. Honestly I want to hear optimism/reality/practicality. If I want to read the negatives I can go elsewhere.
              I can see the problems. Anyone can see the problems. I can only presume that the casual fan thinks others can't and feel the need to point it out. You can believe/hope they will get fixed. Argue why they'll get fixed. Or just ***** that we suck or will always suck until we fire Mac and hire some ****ing roll of the dice HC. "Practically" that's not a great solution. Home run hires are by far the exception. In the end you get somebody who's good in one area but suspect in others. Plus you can't realistically hire and fire coaches every 2 years. If I have to explain why then this discussion is over your head. Continuity is important to any program. Whipsawing coaches is bad on so many levels.
              Personally I hated Muschamp because I couldn't stand his brand of football not just because he's a ****ty coach. People may think I'm exaggerating but I wanted him gone in 2012 because I couldn't stand Chump ball. Sure we may win 12 games but every game was going to be 14-13 last possession wins. I stopped watching games and checking the score the next day. And I had season tickets.
              Contrast that with Macball. If the team executes we score 40-60 a game by design. I've been begging for that since Daz took the reigns in 2010. Also for the first time since then I expect to win every game... by a lot. Honestly all this team needs is a QB. Everything would flow from that including better recruiting. Practically that's the best scenario for us as Gator fans. So keep your chins up or whine like little *****es. Up to you.

                That's right! We are the biggest group of Chicken Little's that this country has ever seen. Sure, there is a ton of work to be done. And yes, it all begin's with recruiting. Then we have the right mix of coaches to mold them into an efficient team. We are picking up some nice recruits who all want to be part of Gator nation. The future is still in front of us. We are not dead. Far from it. Getting beat by Yuckey Kentucky sucks! But eventually the worm had to turn. We have had more than our share of breaks go our way against the Cats. The last minute play by Danny. The bone-headed play made by the "Hefty Lefty". The delay of game not called against the gators. The gator receiver inexplicably left wide open last year. This year the breaks went Kentucky's way. And Franks is a major disappointment. But at this point in time, he still gives the gators it's best chance to win.
                So now we stand at 1 and 1. Ten more games to go. Most of the games winnable. Tough games against Mississippi State, Georgia, LSU, USCe, and FSU. Enough wins ahead to get us back into a season ending bowl game, which is what, after the debacle of 2017 and Butters, a marked improvement.

                  I like Goolsby. It's possible he could make a team somewhere. The majority of my opinion on the draft had to do with the coaching staff, not him. That coaching staff gave most of the players ZERO chance to succeed, and it's a criminal act. The TE's were totally screwed.

                  Mac ruined lives and ran into the night with millions.

                        One of the coaching gurus, i forget who at the moment, used to say if a player is messing up, replace the player, if a whole position group is messing up, replace the coach.

                              I used to let a loss ruin my weekend if not my whole week. I went to bed last night right after the final whistle without really caring about what I just watched.

                              I used to scream and yell at the TV any good or bad play, wouldn’t leave the couch until it was over. I think the most noise I made yesterday was laughing at the incompetence and I worked on projects/walked my dog throughout the second half.

                              I used to look forward to going to a couple games a year or inviting a bunch of people over to watch a big game. If I invite people over this Fall I don’t think I’ll subject them to watching this dumpster fire.

                                Please don't do this...
                                I'm not on either side of the fence on this issue, but please don't ruin this board for me.
                                That nonsense has ruined NFL football, for me, already.

                                Again, I'm not attacking your stance. I'm just so over this topic. There's a political forum if you wish to further discuss this.

                                  Plank admitted he was deliberately stirring up shenanigans over here and then bragging about it over there. I'm not putting up with that.

                                    I am totally against this for one simple reason. Once they graduate, they will have to deal with the real world. I dont think there are many all black companies. They will need to learn to deal with others that are not like them. The whole point of college is to challenge your assumption, not going with what is comfortable.

                                        Lets wait. It is still a long way to go. We have a very free outspoken judicial system and freedom of-speech. And when all will else fails they will the meet the Boers. God help them

                                                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.
