      You said I can't count, numerical, I turned it into a quip about counting in the sense of expecting something from someone. Plus you did call me a phuking dumbazz or something as I recall. I was just trying to be funny since when I went back and checked the film I may not have been 100% accurate.

      (Hint: That's mostly what I do here since I can't contribute that much else)

      Okay, yes, you're the victim. I should have known better.

        Wow, I finally got to watch the game. I have never seen such poor tackling by the Gators in my life. Now I understand what everyone has been talking about. Are they afraid of getting hurt or what?
        It is going to be a long season for the Gators.

          Also poor mechanics.

          The danger when you start fvkking w their throwing motion is that is gets worse (Sabelhaus).

          never mind....I was trying to post a video of a kid named Mcelwain that was great but it wont imbed.
          But I can make an odd reference to this comment. (whowouldathought)
          Mike is far from a poor Mechanic. I made a comment it to it last year and got over 200 responses (about my dad's passing)

          I've never seen a great offensive without a decent offensive line. Give Franks, some time and he will be good, not great but he has a lot of potential with a little time to make his reads. Certainly not Mullens fault. I wish he had played the freshman running back and that Marco did not get hurt on defense as we have no depth. It will take a while but we will be fine. This tragedy has been a long time coming and was basically precipitated by poor coaching decisions by the AD and poor choices by Bernie Machen as he decimated the Die Hard Gator alumni's children and grandchildren. Steve Spurrier ate more chicken dinners and played in more Gator Booster Golf Tournaments all over the state than trying to develop a grass roots support and Urban Meyer immediately destroyed it by deciding he was to damn busy. If we are not careful in our approach to admissions of ex alumni children, Florida Field will become a great soccer field. This is certainly not Mullen's fault . The bame lies with Meyer and Machen. I am an ex Alumni that watched as both his daughters could not quite make the grade to get in. Follow the money baby, out of state student and foreign students pay a lot more money. Do the math.

            Their pass blocking actually wasn't that bad overall. It was comparable to what I saw from most teams that played as far as a QB getting time to throw it. That Colorado state QB was making all kind of nice throws late in that Arkansas game even when the DB had decent coverage. He would put it where his receiver was the only one that had a good chance to go up and catch it. If a receiver was open even when they were running four down the field he was finding them with decent pressure coming at him.

            Point well made. Point is that great offensive lines can make mediocre qbs look great and vice versa. I am more scared about future of Gator Football because we have been mediocre for so long and I have tried to offer my explanation. I am almost 65. My first game was watching Tommy Shannon as QB.

            No one should be surprised at all by today's win. It was totally predictable right after the UK loss. This is Mullen-Ball. Sloppy teams, vanilla offense, but can beat up on teams with inferior talent.
