    Why would he be he is an all-time Gator and an all time NFL player.

    Might be the best Gator Running back ever and top 5 NFL running back ever (personally #3).... nothing bum about that.

      just petulant and childish.........but give it time........offseason is a mutha ........but at least we have morphed from the new coach is a bum and cannot recruit worth a shT and didnt do sh#T at MSU.............
      Bonus Question: what was the most repeated phrase during Emmitt's 3 years at UF during a game.
      The secondary phrase was usually : There he goes............

      It's so strange you're so upset that Emmitt has a grudge against UF. Does it keep you up at night?

      Emmitt has a grudge against UF? Had no idea. I thought he was a gator great.......with his name on the Ring of Honor........
      btw that bonus question answer was "give it to Emmitt"

      That changed quickly after he burned Al-ah-fu*%ing-Bama for 200 yards . In Alabama.

          I can't think another reason he left UF out of his hall of fame speech, hell he even give thanks to his H.S. coach............Maybe Emmits reading this and welcome clean.

          Many of you have cited the HOF speech to deduce he has a grudge against UF and yet the only reason offered so far for having a grudge was a guess at Spurrier. This is a wild goose chase.

          I just don’t think he’s all that fond of his time at UF...for reasons unknown.

          I've read two "connected" accounts that point to a strained relationship with Foley. Wouldn't it please everyone if we just heaped it on top of everything else already on Foley?

              Are you drunk? He IS a Gator great, who said he wasn't? But he still has a grudge against UF.

                Ok give my another reason he never mentioned Florida, just forgot, No Florida is not important enough for him to mention ,the only answer.
                I think a statue might help him love us again.

                We'll be overrun with statues in a few years. Everyone will have a statue. There'll even be one of Foley in a pensive pose.

                  Most on here aren’t inventing the Emmitt grudge or him suggesting he’d be better off if (perhaps not wishing) he went elsewhere (Auburn, not Bama). Here’s the context:

                  FWIW Larry Guest became one of those that SOS had nothing to do with. Now I can see why.
