Noon games probably are really difficult on those FSU players. Everyone knows they do most of their work after midnight. The NCAA should show some mercy here. Rape, theft, and dealing are physically demanding and take more than 4 to 5 hours of sleep for a guy to recover from.
That Ohio State team we beat had a linebacker that wanted to come to UF but was academically ineligible for us so he had to join them. Oops!
I really enjoyed throwing that in the trolls' faces.
If you guys remember, tOSU trolls were the worst ever before that game. Coming on Gator sites talking ungodly amounts of smack...how many times were they going to tell us about their DE's body fat percentage or how they had SEC speed because of their win over Miami or how this was the greatest college football team ever, it was BRUTAL. New trolls coming out of the woodwork every day talking about how the "real" mnc was when they beat Michigan, Tressel was Lombardi, Troy Smith was the GOAT. Insufferable.
Even in Glendale, their fans were so freakin' arrogant. They didn't come for a game. They came for a coronation.
They would buy us drinks because they felt sorry for us, for the Nebraska-esque ass whipping we were about to take. "Hey, you got a nice little team, too bad you caught us this year, shame you came all the way out here to see them get blown out, hey lemme buy you a drink, you're gonna need it."
I remember saying to them "Look, you may very well beat us, but this is an ELITE defense. Not a good defense, a GREAT defense. You may beat us. But you aren't going to blow us out."
The most points we gave up all season that year was 28 to Arkansas in the SEC Championship game. They were talking about scoring 40-50 on us AFTER our defense had almost a month to prepare. Hell no.
I really enjoyed beating the hell out of them. They were shell-shocked walking out of that stadium. Incredulous. Like it was a nightmare, not real. Oh, it was real alright.
Dammit. I want us to win again.

So the wifey got me tickets for Christmas, and I'm really not sure on how we will spend our time Saturday before gametime. I was thinking of just paying for event parking at the dome and walking around the premises like any other away game. Anybody have any suggestions on which lot would be best or places for lunch closeby? It's just myself, my wife, and my 10 year old son...we just want to have a good time and try to stay out of harms way. Thanks in advance for your responses!

we talk about Macs recruiting or lack of, but give credit where credit is due with this flip. The kid is 275 shy of 1,000 on only 140 carries with 1 less game played. Kelvin had like 250 carries to barely break past 1k. He and Perine next year are going to be beasts in the backfield and will take the load off Franks or Trask
- Thread: Best win in 5 to 6 years
Excellent coaching job all round. I don't know what happened against South Carolina but the Oline has really come together starting with that game. TJ McCoy in the center of the line has solidified it. That guy can push up field.
And the 1-2 punch of Scarlet and Perine can be devastating.
Yes, turnovers had a little something to do with the outcome, but the defensive stand at the end was phenomenal and we've had many games where we have lost the turnover battle and got routed. So turnovers are just part of the game.
Just ask...Miss State...Notre Dame...Michigan State...Oregon...UCLA...Arizona...who ALL have 5 losses EACH. Those are programs that are typically ALWAYS good and they STINK this year. We think we have it bad with 1 loss that feels like 10 losses to some of you clowns. Go Gators!!
- Thread: Pumping Sunshine
There are a ton of reasons to be frustrated with the Gators right now and I get those, but it seems like that is all we are hearing on this board these days... so lets focus on some of the positives right now.
1. Del Rio just played one of his worst games, but it was after being injured and not really practicing for 3 weeks (he was splitting time with AA last week) - he now has two weeks to get healthy and spend more time with the 1st team and that will help.
2. We have two very good RBs. Scarlett and Perine are both fantastic RBs and if we focus on giving the two of them the ball it should make a difference. Thompson ran better against Mizzou, but I still think he is #3 behind those two and they should get the bulk of the carries.
3. We have 2 dangerous WRs. When was the last time we had multiple threats at WR. The emergence of Cleveland is only going to help open things up as teams will have to pick their poison.
4. Brandon Powell got involved. I think it was good to get him involved in the game. Finding ways to get a guy who can make plays the ball is key.
5. The D really was incredible the first half. I get that Mizzou gashed us running the ball in the second half, but the D was dominant early.. I think Mizzou had 6 series in a row that went 3 and out. That is insane even against a bad SEC team (and Mizzou wasn't bad offensively). - This gives our offense more opportunities and if we can just fix some of those procedural issues we may open up a big lead forcing teams to pass and attack the strength of our D.
6. Last year we had a lot of penalty issues and McElwain did focus on them and we did see an improvement. I think that will be a big focus in the next two weeks and I expect to see us improve like we did last year.
7. We got a kicker! Yes... Eddie barley missed a short FG early, but hitting a 53 yarder was huge. That really helps give us more chances to score points. It is a big deal (especially after last year)
8. I don't know the details on Ivie and Sherrit's injuries off the top of my head, but I am hoping they both can get healthy and contribute by UGA.
9. Young guys got some playing time. We constantly talk about the need to blow out bad teams so we can get younger guys some playing time. We got that during Mizzou.. Reese and Moon were both in the game and so was Clayton and other guys. This is key to building depth and giving us any chance next year on D. These guys need experience.
10. We are 5-1. I know we haven't played LSU and haven't really looked as good as we want, but we are 5-1 and control our own destiny to get to Atlanta. I'm not sure if we beat LSU, Arkansas, UGA or FSU, but I think we have a chance against all of them and that would make us a top 10 team which would help recruiting.

10 Drives, 6 ended in points. On the drives that we didn't score two were killed by 15 yard penalties. One was stalled by a fumble and another by a dropped pass.
Remove the drops and penalties and we score on every drive. Silver Lining They didn't stop us, WE stopped us.

Great to have Pineiro, who nailed 4 FG's, if you include the one that was taken away. We're talking about a guy that had never kicked in a football game before. That's remarkable. Not only that, his contagious excitement was one of the few bright spots to the bored-looking zombies all around him. He may have been the only one that looked like he actually wanted to be there.
There's no question he's going to attempt some 60+ yard FG's this year.

That Saturday, the quarterback had a nice day. He completed 27 of 40 pass attempts for 259 yards and a TD. He snuck a short distance for another TD while leading his team to 442 yards of total offense.
Yet, at crunch time, the score was tied at 27.

Funny Facebook post I saw.
Recently, while I was working in the flower beds in the front yard, my neighbors stopped to chat as they returned home from walking their dog.
During our friendly conversation, I asked their 12 year old daughter what she wanted to be when she grows up. She said she wanted to be President some day.
Both of her parents - liberal Democrats - were standing there, so I asked her, "If you were President what would be the first thing you would do?"
She replied, "I'd give food and houses to all the homeless people."
Her parents beamed with pride!
"Wow...what a worthy goal!" I said. "But you don't have to wait until you're President to do that!" I told her.
"What do you mean?" she replied.
So I told her, "You can come over to my house and mow the lawn, pull weeds, and trim my hedge, and I'll pay you $50. Then you can go over to the grocery store where the homeless guy hangs out, and you can give him the $50 to use toward food and a new house."
She thought that over for a few seconds, then she looked me straight in the eye and asked, "Why doesn't the homeless guy come over and do the work, and you can just pay him the $50?"
I said, "Welcome to the Republican Party."
Her parents aren't speaking to me.
- Thread: Shaq in Gainesville
Awesome story and worth the read.
It doesn't matter who. Grady, I would assume. Give him all the first team reps this week and throw him out there. Someone new may at least give us a 1% chance to win. It's 0% with Harris. Mentally, he is DONE, and Mac has to know that.
Same with Hardin. There is no reason for Hardin to ever attempt another kick for the Florida Gators. Put in the dentist and be done with it.
Was on the 50, 3 rows up for Ole Miss (and, yes, I'm still a little hoarse). Thought I would share some observations from right behind our sideline.
1. Wow these kids are young. They look like men in pads and helmets, but up close, they really are kids. Lots of zits, narrow behinds, skinny legs, and baby faces. Even the OL with the big bodies have baby faces. It's often easy to forget these are a bunch of 19 and 20 year old kids.
2. Antonio Morrison is a LEADER on the field and on the sideline. He was active, pumping up teammates on O and D. He's a real asset and everybody seems to respect him.
3. VHIII is perpetually smiling, always looks happy, he has a bounce to his step, and looks like he could break into dance at any time. I do think he musta been one of the dudes who got the flu though because there were times when he looked totally gassed. But that smile was always there. You just want to be friends with the guy. After the INT I shouted at him "VERNON, THANKS FOR THE PICK!" and he waved to acknowledge.
4. Keanu Neal is the opposite. Super intense on the sideline. He's got his gameface on and it's a scowl. I guess he is able to let it go after the game 'cause he's the one who was dancing on the sideline with the State Trooper after the game.
5. Martez Ivey is BIG.
6. Treon Harris wasn't pouting or scowling. He was supporting his teammates and celebrating their successes.
7. Coach Mac might sound all relaxed when they do the halftime interview but it's an act. He's nervous as a cat on the sideline, looking down, pacing back and forth, engrossed in the discussions on the headset.
8. Alex Anzalone was in street clothes and had his arm in a soft sling. He was going up and down the sidelines, encouraging his teammates.
9. I thought Bryan Cox, Jr. was something of a tweener, a LB playing DE, I but I was wrong. He's a big dude. Alex McCallister, on the other hand, looks like a basketball player.
10. The crowd. No, it's not like the 90's, but it is more like the 90's than it has been in a while. Back then, there were no visible gaps like we see now right in the top middle of the student section. Also, it was denser back then. Especially for big games, people constantly snuck in to the point where it was impossible to sit and you pretty much had to stand sideways for everybody to fit. We're not back to that level (and I don't know if we will get back to that level). In terms of attendance, it's more like a typical Meyer-era crowd or maybe a Spurrier-era crowd for a Vandy type game. BUT, the fans who were there were LOUD. It felt like the 90's in there. The stadium was rocking and it got to the Ole Miss offense. Many times, Kelly had to go up and down the line, trying to shout audibles. The Ole Miss offense felt like it was under siege from that crowd all night. It was intimidating and disconcerting, and the Gator D fed off of that energy. They were bouncing, excited, on their toes, it was GREAT. You could tell the D was loving the home field advantage. I looked to see where the visiting recruits were seated (used to be in the South Endzone) but I couldn't make it out. Still, I'm sure any recruits who visited for that game would want to don an orange helmet and play in front of a crowd like that.
First post, long time lurker since pre-G Chat. Thanks for keeping me entertained over the years. Anyway, to the post:
Martez Ivey is going to be an all-world LT one day. I was in the south end zone 9 rows up next to the visitor's tunnel Saturday night (Ole Miss fans were very classy and very quiet). Coach Summers was putting the o-line through pre-game drills right in front of us so we got a good look at him. He's enormous yet quick, and seemed to have a mean streak. But what stood out the most were the tree branches he calls arms. They are just massive and seemingly extend much longer than is humanly possible. The scary part is that he's still freshman soft and will get much stronger between now and next year. Grier need not worry about his blind side for the next few years.
And here's an example showing that Coach Mac knows exactly what he's doing. In the off-season he said they were cross-training all of the lineman in order to get the best 5 out there. He meant it. Ivey will be great, but David Sharpe is also a stud that deserves to start at LT right now, especially given his experience and physical growth as a true sophomore. So what does Mac do with Ivey? How about LG next to Sharpe at LT. Those two monsters were out there together for numerous possessions Saturday night, including the decisive drive at the end of the first half. What a devastating left side of the line! The future of the offense is in good hands.
