        Basically she said the fan expectations are and always have been in the sh!tter in Starkville, and she's just peachy with that. Moral victories count just fine, thank you. They certainly don't demand excellence, or Mullen wouldn't be there anymore. It's a perfect place for both of them to rot away, stealing millions for nothing in return.

        I've grown quite weary of people taking swipes at my town and our fans.

            It is always funny how these guys have the guts to write articles like this right after the coach is fired...

              I was very meh about Mullen’s hire when it was announced. The record vs ranked teams, the SEC record, the whole cousin Eddy vibe ( Mac’s aw shucks stoner routine made me vomit) made the hire feel like we sht the bed and panicked.

              After yesterday I have to admit this feels like when we hired Meyer. I loved the energy getting off the plane. What other coach is chomping as he walks off the plane? The excitement he showed, the desire to show off the ring he won at Florida. All of that topped off with a presser focusing on relentless effort, a very Meyeresque phrase, and recruiting. Townsend’s reaction, recruits appreciating getting called the first day he is there, the simple fact we have sucked on offense since he left, etc it all reminded me of when Meyer started.

              I hope I am right. But these past 8 years have me holding judgement until around this time next year.

                Let us get it straight about this Hail Mary blllsht. A hail mary pass is when you send a crowd to the endzone and throw that mofo high and long toward it. HOPING your guy gets it. The last play was nothing like that. TC broke away from coverage and was wide open running past the guy that finally came over. FF set his feet and threw it as hard (the only HM part of it even) as any man could to a spot TC could run under it. It was in the air so long I went and took a pizzz and came back before it landed. By the time it got there a safety had closed in somewhat. I have seen many Hail Marys. This was not even within a mile of one. So forget that "lucky hail mary" crap. He spotted TC and did what a good QB does.

                    Well, I have been checking in every now and then but rarely feel like I have anything of value to add so I just keep things low profile. My daughter is now a senior @ UF and my son is a junior @ UCF so Scott Frost to UF has been a very hot topic in my house since Sunday. I can tell you this, my son has a very close friend that works with the training staff for UCF and there is not a person in the building that does not love Scott Frost and the only people who love him more are his players. One of the WR and DB's on the team are very close to my family and both had offer to more prominent P5 schools but decided to stay close to home and play for the "next great college football mind" and someone that could get them ready for the pro's. Now imagine that "great college football mind" with the resources of UF which also allows these kids to stay home, play in the SEC, and have a shot at an SEC Championship (the real NC as far as I am concerned) and get into the playoff. I am willing to bet that NOBODY outside of Gator Nation wants that combination or it is party over for all those that have been kicking us around for the last 7 years. While it would kill me to see him leave UCF where I have watched every home game in person since he got there, I would be even more overjoyed to see him restore the shine to my alma mater and bring it back to its previous glory. Well, that's all I got but you can bet my son and daughter will be a real hoot going at one another around the thanksgiving table if this isn't resolved by then.

                                    Looks like we've honed in on Frost and our boosters have already been in contact with his representatives gauging interest. Spurrier has allegedly told Stricklin this is the guy we need and we need to move on him now so don't be surprised if things escalate quickly. Will update soon as i can dig up more :chomp:

                                      We, my wife and I, don't go to games much any more. We're 72 years old but still strong
                                      Gator fans. But HD big screen TVs help make
                                      it real. With the DVR you can quickly do your
                                      own replay.

                                      We turn the TV volume down and listen to
                                      Mick and Lee. We almost never have
                                      company. That is a special time in our household. We've been married 54 years. Before I married her, her father took me to my first Gator game. Don Edgington blocked an extra point attempt and we beat Miss St 14 - 13. That day I became a gator fan.

                                      We enjoy watching the game making as much noise as we like, giving high fives for good plays and full embracing for a Gator score. After the game, cough, cough, I mean
                                      victory, we enjoy a good New York strip, baked potato and salad. It Is alway a great day. I personally prefer them in all
                                      blue. I am starting to like the all orange.

                                      And after that...... we use to always enjoy some good 'gator tail'. At the age of 72 that doesn't happen every time now. But it still happens some of the times.

                                        Just a little info to share on commit Dameon Pierce. Bainbridge played pre-season scrimmage against Lowndes County HS (Valdosta GA). Format was three quarters varsity, one quarter JV. Lowndes won the varsity session 14-0 and kept Dameon bottled-up between the tackles fairly effectively. He did have a few nice runs where he allowed blocks to set up and then effectively cut off of them, one went for about fifty yards. Even on the nulls, he was difficult to bring down and I think this speaks to the pride and tenacity with which he plays.

                                        Dameon was targeted a few times in the passing game. He only had a couple of catchable balls and one resulted in an interference penalty. His best reception was a nice reception up the seam for about twenty. His best route was slipping out of the backfield up the middle of the field where he got behind the safety. The QB overthrew him, but an on-target shot would have been a score. He can definitely run a route and make the catch.

                                        Lowndes was a bigger school and looks to be pretty sporty this season. Bainbridge threatened to score twice (once inside the ten), but wound up turning it over on downs. Since the game doesn't really count, you could say they made a decent showing, even though the OL struggled against Lowndes front seven. These games are valuable in terms of assessment leading into the regular season. I'll update this thread a little later when the stats are available. Bottom line is that I think Dameon's got a chance to play some good ball for us...just got to get him to campus (seems like you got to qualify comments on about all the recruits like this these days!). For what it's worth, he told me he was happy and solid and that Coach Seider had made a great impression and developed a good relationship with him. Positives are good to hear. More later...
