    What a head case. Pun intended.

    BTW, has anyone mentioned just what a terrible analyst he was at ESPN? Dull, lifeless and not that insightful.

    Myer's made to do one thing, coach football. Not be the social worker he always claimed to be, not be the pious Catholic he claimed to be, not be the beacon of righteousness he claimed to be, not be the engaged and doting father he claimed to be and the guiding light of how men should treat women that he claimed to be. He failed miserably at all those things. Nope, he's made to do one thing and he does that with laser focus. It'll be interesting to see how he copes without all the stress.

      I guess you can't drink all day if you don't start in the morning.

        We need to get Mark Pantoni. If you haven't heard of him do a google search. He's a UF grad and in charge of the Ohio State recruiting machine. He'd be a HOMERUN hire and we should write a blank check to get him (seriously, he's making $160K or so at Ohio State - we should offer him a guaranteed 5 year $250K/year contract).

              Good for him. If you’ve got a damn cyst on your brain go take care of it.

              Thanks for the two NC’s and for Tim. I’d take 40 Urbans in a row if we’d get the same short term success

                No way. Urbs is a man of his word. If he says he has a super ultra serious health condition and he just must not coach at all costs because his family comes first, then there is no way he’ll go back on that. He’s a rock of truth. Bank on that.

                  The winner here is Dabo Swinney. The guy called this on the recruiting trail last year and landed said recruit as a result. Took some heat for it too. He has instant credibility now and can pretty much say anything he wants and be taken seriously.

                  As J said, I respect what he can do and did for us, but the drama is that of a teenage girl. The whole thing is just so obvious and cliched.

                    Yeah, I know dudes who parachute out of airplanes into enemy territory then kick in the doors of jihadis hoping to kill the infidels.

                    And many other such dangerous jobs involving life or death.

                    Not real impressed with the "stress" of football.

                      Why the HELL would this "raise eyebrows" in Austin and Gainesville? What did they expect Meyer to say when asked? "Yeah, Day is chopped liver when it comes to Mullen and Herman and he will be a disappointment to the program." That is one of the most idiotic posts I've ever run across.

                        There's no apostrophe in Gators. Imagine that apostrophe on the helmet script - we'd be laughed out of college football.

                                    The flaw in this whole "trade" argument is that there's no real reason we had to choose in the first place. We absolutely could've had the best of both worlds. I get that we had some issues when he left. But let's be clear. Our lost decade was much more due to who Foley hired to replace Meyer, not anything Meyer personally did while here. If anything, as I've said repeatedly, he gave our AD an entire year heads up. If handled properly, we could've been just fine. Maybe we don't win national titles during that stretch. But we also don't see the lows of games like GSU or having a buffoon as the face of our program. Our ten years of crap was not entirely on Meyer. In fact, I'd say he was the least of our concerns. The program lost its way, and that started well above Urban.

                                      I have never once claimed Meyer is some kind of saint or is a man of high character. I think he's a liar and a cheater that will do everything to win just like all the other coaches in the NCAA (including ours), but his drama-queen persona just makes it more in-your-face. I have absolutely no interest in meeting the man and don't really care about his personality.

                                      And don't make me laugh on the faux outrage with the "wife beater enabler" stuff. If the exact same thing happened when he was here at UF, you would either defend it or blow it off as nothing but a witch-hunt. And we by-God DID blow off all the arrests, etc, while he was here because he was winning, which is what he was hired to do. That's what fans do - overlook crap in order to win. Remember on the GSMB when one of our rivals would throw up that arrest list and we'd wring our hands and defend our coach? Let's not be hypocrites.

                                      People can hate all they want, I just want them to be honest about things. And very few of you are honest about the situation.

                                        I freely admit Meyer is a drama queen and a weirdo. I've never said otherwise. It doesn't seem to matter one damn bit when the ball is kicked off - he just wins.

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.
