        Gators will have to play with the same intensity vs vandy or they could get beat ! Vandy should have beaten Notre dame . But we have a coach that brings the whole gator nation together rather than the last 4 coaches that turned players against the fans .

            Oh I agree too. I’d not be surprised is we lose another 2 or 3 games. If we lose only one, I’d be tickled pink.

                Richard Trapp’s catch and run is my favorite.

                  Good post but I don’t agree with fans pumping the brakes. If anything, go crazy. Pack the stadium, scream until you can’t. Go all in and have some fun with it. I don’t think this team can beat a top ten by 40 or win the SEC but that should not hold us back. We are creating an environment where that becomes possible. I definitely think it helps recruiting.

                    I agree with you to a large extent. I would however like to direct you to the 45-3 drubbing we took in 1990 even after manifesting significant improvement. Buy in takes time and, usually, pain. I have a lot of confidence in this staff but Rome simply can't be (re)built in a day. I'm not sure if losing to UK was enough to really secure full buy in. No doubt it helped significantly. Think about Meyer's first year and the Bama game. It took him basically the whole season to get things turned around. Is this current trend too good to be both true and sustainable? I sure hope not.

                    The other thing about it is we may be learning as much about the teams we face as we are learning about ourselves.

                    If we whip UGA by 20 I'll gladly eat crow.

                            Not sure which four he's talking about, the first four or the most recent four, but the 1980 team went 3-1 during either stretch. That was pretty impressive coming off 0-10-1.

                              Tend to agree. If this improvement trend holds, it will be up there among the best ever at UF. I still doubt we'll see the likes of SOS' 1990 team again... from utter futility in '89 to offensive and defensive juggernaut in 1990. Still probably my favorite team ever. Just waiting to be led to the promised land! My God do I miss those defenses we used to have. Traceable, of course, to the Pell era.

                                OP is my dad. He's the most negative gator fan in the world. So for him to join and post that, it took a lot.

                                  This thread delivers. I dont even feel the need to contribute because it is all so good.

                                  About as fair an assessment as there is. Im still cautiously optimistic. It definitely feels exciting again but I’m putting the “second coming of SOS or UM” thoughts on hold for a while.

                                          The management works very hard to make sure the community is running the best software, best designs, and all the other bells and whistles. Care to buy us a non-alcoholic Zima? We'd really appreciate it! Just click the "Donate" tab at the top of the page.
