      We killed Michigan.
      UGA choked against Texas.
      Miami was clobbered by Wisconsin and went through a coaching change.
      FSU and Tennessee were sitting on their asses all month, and FSU hired an OC who managed 14 points against Army.
      UCF got their comeuppance so now they might STFU.

      Great time to be a Gator.

        Agreed. UCF is the Ocasio-Cortez of college football.

          My son, born today. 8lbs 3oz. 20 1/2 inches
          Mother and child doing well. I know, cool story bro. But I'd thought I'd share. My wife went to UNC so it will be a battle for his allegiance

              Thank you all for your concern and kind words. Today is day 15. Although I still feel very sick today is first time I feel any improvement at all.

              This has been the worst experience of my life. Absolutely nothing like like the flu. I honestly believed there was a good chance I was going to die. Literally dug out the life insurance policies.

              Symptoms would rotate. Chills that would have me shaking violently for hours. My wife kept running blankets through the dryer to keep me warm.

              Fevers that went to 102-104.

              Then the worst cough imaginable. My insides were raw.

              All of above kept me awake days on end. Twice went 3-4 days without a bite of food.

              Today, miraculously, I woke up feeling sick. Just sick. Like a flu. But the only real symptom today is a piercing headache.

              Hopefully this is the beginning of the recovery.

                An almost astounding lack of empathy in this thread from Swonky/law on everything except pounding sloppy fat sows after closing time. My biggest fear is that I somehow end up at his death bed trying to comfort him as he crosses to the great beyond, but instead end up getting his sad regrets all over me.

                Paul Drake, glad you are amongst us and amongst the living. You are one of my favorites, welcome back.

                Statistically speaking, one of us fellow Gatorchatterers is going to die or has already died from this pandemic. I'm not gonna lie, I hope it's T Rex.

                    Well I had COVID 19 and it put me in the hospital on Dec. 19th and it damn near killed me. I just got out of rehab 3 weeks ago and I'm still not over it. The respiratory therapist told me and my wife they almost lost me twice as they had to put me in an induced coma. The only reason I'm even talking about his is there seems to be people around me and on the board that think this is all something akin nothing more than having the flu. I had to learn to walk again because I was off my feet for so long. I still don't know how I got it as I wore my mask and washed my hands frequently. Not sure why this topic is in the sports discussion but I truly had the hell scared out of me over it. My daughter and wife both got it as well. My daughter seems to have shaken it off and my wife did get sick with a fever but not enough to go to the ER. I just hope I don't get it again. It was the most sick I've ever been in my life and it was a nightmare in the ICU when I finally woke up. I was alone and not able to see anyone. In any event I feel pretty lucky to have gotten over it and it burns my rear end when I have people tell me this is all over blown. Two teachers in my department got it the following week I did and they still haven't returned to work. I'm looking to start back on the 15th teaching from home even though I still get short winded if I talk for long periods of time. In any event I'm glad to be well enough to be on the board and mostly follow topics and discussion. Go Gators.

                      I retested last Thursday and yesterday my results came back still positive. I feel much better but very tired. I have none of the previous symptoms other than some shortness of breath. I have some appointments set up later in the week With my doctor and hopefully another retest.

                      Short story is simply it was a horrible experience. I was lucky that while I eventually had every symptom.....I got them one at a time. First was insane chills, then very high fevers and headaches, then non-stop coughing and the shortness of breath. Always completely wore out but could not sleep due to whatever symptom was fvvcking with me. Twice I went at least 3 days without eating a bite of food. I drank a ton of liquids and took a lot of Tylenol. I also had some stronger prescription cough syrup which was a tremendous help. I tried to sit out in the sun a bit and would walk around the house just trying to be somewhat active. At one point they wanted to admit me to the hospital but I had a real mental block with that. Luckily just a couple days later is when I started to turn the corner.

                      I’m not going to lie. It scared the hell out of me. But hopefully I’m close to putting this to bed now. It’s day 27 today so it’s been a helluva run.

                                  I was with my 25 year old son when he died..... It was the hardest, most traumatic thing I have ever experienced... but if my voice telling him that I loved him was the last thing he heard, it was a Blessing.

                                  Excuse me while I dry my eyes...

                                        @ltraz: that chicken really needs another year in the S&C program before it crosses any roads. It's only out there because of Mullen's awful recruiting.

                                                Our community sprung up when the Gatorsports message board was shut down in the summer of 2014. We pride ourselves on offering Gator-biased, yet critical discussion among people of all different backgrounds. We are working every day to make sure our community is the best Gator message board you will find.
