    I love when businesses whine about the customers.

      This is why I laughed at all the suggestions of how to fill the stadium, like take away student tickets. You literally can't give tickets away. Trust me they've tried.

      Foley should start a book on "How to destroy a major college football program":

      I guess it's also fair weather to have a family and make it your priority. Hell, I've had to listen to gator games in the car recently and watch the recording later (or in the case of the last two.. don't bother). Why? Because I have my own athletes who travel across multiple states every weekend for sports.

      Yep.. fair weather.

        Steve is an idiot . Gator fans have sat through 10 years of worse than garbage offensive offensive football . It's like an actor that makes a sorry movie and then gets pissed off no one goes to it . This program was run into the ground by King Jeremy Foley with bad hires not keeping up football facilities and calling loyal fans " noise in the system " Muschump is getting his last check from uf for over 700,000 this month . Foley giving extensions to 2 year coaches and large buy outs was beyond mismanagement bordering on a criminal waste of money . That foley is still on the payroll ( 500,000) for doing nothing is sickening ! Gator boosters have done a horrible job monitoring the abysmal job Foley did with the program also . Stricken has the program headed forward thank god .

          That "Ivy League Prez" graduated from arch-rival Miami Killian Sr High the same yr I graduated from Southwest Miami Sr High. I am proud that UF is now a Top 10 academic public univ. I also love Gator sports. But as a professor of Cybersecurity at Georgia Southern University, I know what comes first. Go look at UF's mission statement to find out.

            The dude never asked me to sit up there. I would run him over getting in a sky box.

            Cry me a river GErn.........Gator fans before you were born sat through fckn decade after decade after decades pulling for teams that were left at the alter every year. We had more almosts than God had a right to give us. We had a guy once throw a ball out of bounds to stop the clock on FOURTH DOWN. We had QBs that make the last 6 look like all SEC. We had Georgia stomp in our face for decades to keep us from winning that FIRST sec title. We only won four last year? Try this on for size........:pe: We went year after year after year and stood up when Two Bits came by. We pulled for the boys cause they were OUR TEAM............When SOS finally came home to exorcise all those ghosts we knew our wait was worth it...........

                Honestly, even better, The perfect game for young kids and the great equalizer. Size and speed are not as important. I taught it for 39 years in my PE classes and usually was their fav. sport.

                      I’ve always hated the way he comes across on the air, an imperious douchebag that talks to his customers like they’re idiots, so his thoughts about the fans is right in line with what I think about him.

                          I take this sh*t pretty seriously. Yes there are good reasons not to go to a game: time, money, travel costs, family obligations, are all more important than Gator football. But if the reason you don't go to games is because of some lame "product on the field" excuse, you sound legitimately like some whiney, nasally, half-assed New York Jet or Miami Hurricane fan, who'd rather be at the goddam air-conditioned mall carrying their man-purse than watch "their" team lose in the Florida sun. For the record, "Through all kinds of weather we'll all stick together..." means something. Gator football is more than a "product." School spirit is more than wins and losses. The kids on the field can't help who their coach and athletic director are. They play their hearts out and show pride in their school most of the time. You should too.
