      Sad thing is it should take courage there wasn't really anything to private about the questions, and it give a everyone a chance to know one another better which I support

            My wife wanted me to "grow-up". So, she signed us up for a group led by a Psychologist that went to our church. We were sitting in about a sixteen-member circle with a guy I didn't know on my left. Naturally, the Psych wanted us to go around the circle, stand, and introduce ourselves with some content about who we were. Going clockwise my turn was coming. When 'trapped" is when my mind is most unpredictable, even to me. I stood, with thumb pointing to the guy on my left, lump-in-throat, then burst forth most commandingly: "I've never liked being me. So, I've decided to be him. So, if you want to know about me, you're gonna have to ask him." Poor guy was now "trapped"... and my wife was livid.

                You'd be surprised the lengths devious minds will go to piece together bits of info from several different sources to gain someone's identity. And it's often their primary job, so all they have is time...

                  Well then, I'd suggest anyone with skeletons in their closet to refrain from participating in this thread. Guess we'll know everyone who has skeletons in their closets after this thread runs it's course. :grin:

                      I'm not worried. I have most of my money tucked away in secret swiss accounts right next to Hillary's emails. Since nobody seems able to find those, I feel pretty good about my money.:grin:

                        Sorry if this seems intrusive to some. No harm intended. Hope nobody would take info for wrong reasons. If worried just answer some questions as CGgater did. I am a pastor so I have nothing in the bank to risk!:pumper: Generally I don't worry about stuff like that. I don't even lock my doors at the house unless I'm leaving for a couple of days. Thanks to the brave that have answered...I am an avid reader and love knowing some background of posters.

                          Wow, someone that I "know" or at least have been to one game live and then met to watch the SEC championship game sans UF in a bar and none of this came up. Either we didn't drink enough or we drank too much and I have forgot these stories over the years.

                          Now for me:

                          1.Where I spent most of my life... Spanish Fort, AL. I was a military kid so I never lived on place too much until later in life.
                          2. Where I live now... Daphne, AL which is really the same place.
                          3. What I do for a iving... I am an economics prof.
                          4. Team I despise... Anyone not nicknamed the Gators. I am not so big on the SEC SEC stuff. If UF is not winning a title I want it to go U of Hawaii or U of Alaska-Fairbanks.
                          5. Team I would pull for if gators didn't exist... The answer to this question is the null set.
                          6. What will gators record be this year... 10-2
                          7. How old I am... 64
                          8. Family?... Yes,
                          9. Why are U a gator Fan? Second Generation Gator Grad.
                          10. Favorite Hobby other than watching gators? Reading
                          11. Played what sports in High School? Any good? Football ok.
                          12. Played what sport past High School? A little bit in college.
                          13. Coached? What Sport(s)? What level? Nope.
                          14. Any family made it big in Sports? Nope.
                          15. Biggest area of concern for the coming year? Offense not again being among the worst in D1.
                          16. Biggest area of excitement for the coming year? None.
                          17. If Coach Mac doesn't make it, who would you want as coach? (Realistically) Spurrier, he is 6 year younger than Bill Snyder. It is one of the great embarrassments in UF sports that UF failed to hire the best coach in college football twice this century.
                          18. If we had to lose to one of the following, which preferred? FSU-UGA-UT The great thing is that UF does not have to lose to any of these teams.

                            You must have forgotten. Much of my football past used to come up on Zook Courtney Insider when I would argue with several of the morons there who knew nothing about football.

                                1.Where I spent most of my life... Gainesville (Born in Shands, dad served 3 yrs in Germany, then ages 3-32 in G'ville)
                                2. Where I live now...just outside Harrisburg, PA
                                3. What I do for a living...Program Manager for an OEM making construction equipment. Basically coordinate cross functional teams to develop and launch new products.
                                4. Team I despise...FSU
                                5. Team I would pull for if gators didn't exist...tough one. Probably UVA as my wife got her grad degree there (she loves sports). Keeps the O&B theme, and they'd never really get my expectations up for anything, so not a lot of disappointment to be had.
                                6. What will gators record be this year...8-4 (losses to MICH, UGA, FSU, and Bama in SECCG, bowl win) EDIT - SECCG and bowl would make 14 games, so 9-5
                                7. How old I am...47 unitl November. Sagittarius baby!
                                8. Family?...wife of 17 years (dated 7 before that), daughter just turned 11, son just turned 8
                                9. Why are U a gator Fan? Honestly, didn't care until my sophomore year of HS when everyone was picking teams.
                                10. Favorite Hobby other than watching gators? watching my kids play sports (daughter is soccer, son is soccer/flagfootball/baseball_withallstars)
                                11. Played what sports in High School? Any good? Soccer (HS and club) and we were damn good. I was probably the 7th best out of 14 guys. Never great, but held my own.
                                12. Played what sport past High School? Only soccer. Never had any eye-hand coordination.
                                13. Coached? What Sport(s)? What level? Nada. Hoping to help coach my kids soccer, but I work an hour away, so can't be counted on to make it to practice all the time.
                                14. Any family made it big in Sports? I'm the biggest and best so far. Not saying much.
                                15. Biggest area of concern for the coming year? Personally - That I take it too seriously. For the team - OC play calling. Kid can execute, stick to what they can do but still mix it up, and DONT be predictable dammit.
                                16. Biggest area of excitement for the coming year? Def and Running are solid. IF (big IF) we get a QB functioning, our WR can light it up. RBs, take some heat off the WRs, but nobody expects us to have a QB - if we do, I'll be real excited about the passing game...if we have an OC that can play call.
                                17. If Coach Mac doesn't make it, who would you want as coach? (Realistically) IDGAF. As much as you guys ***** and moan, I'll make the effort to be a spectator and not a rabid fan like I did growing up in the 80's before Spurrier showed us what was possible.
                                18. If we had to lose to one of the following, which preferred? FSU-UGA-UT I would pick UT, only if it extends Botch's tenure.

                                      6. What will gators record be this year... If I knew, I'd be hovering with NVGator on a million dollar bet.
