        Miami - ACC
        Northwestern- Big 10
        Kansas - Big 12
        Oregon State - Pac 10
        Vanderbilt - SEC

        UF is second worst in SEC.

          I and others have been beating this drum for several years now while several people told us we didn't know wtf we we're talking about. Hmmm...looks like we weren't the idiots many said we we're.

          However....we now sit almost dead ass last because we have an AD who absolutely refuses to continue the upgrades (despite him knowing it's killing the program in recruiting) yet he does nothing. Kinda unbelievable!

            It's because we have so much tradition and want to keep things the way they are. Or, it's because we are Florida and we are better.

              I aint buying it. What are the criteria. Putt Putt golf? 100ft video screens? Does it just have to do with football facilities?
              btw its hard to upgrade from starkville or knoxville or Athens when UF's sunshine and beaches are are minutes away.

                So we are worse than SC now also. We were just above them the last one I saw.

                    Not buying it? LOL. You're the same guy who Muschamp could've murdered your grandma and you'd still been calling for his fifth season.

                    Where are the Foleyites?

                      Shocker....but hey guys at least all the non-revenue sports are doing well :woohoo:

                      We can blame Urban's last year; the Muschamp Reign; and other reasons we fell apart but the truth is, the head of the snake hasn't done his part either.

                        The article doesn't say we're 13th out of 14th. I just says Vandy has the worst facilities....then it says, "Also: Florida...."

                        I'd guess we're middle of the pack SEC....which is still inexcusable. Even FSU has moved well ahead of us in facilities.

                        For those that think facilities - such as nice/big dorms, players lounges, nice weight rooms, etc - don't matter you need to go hang out w/ teenagers and find out what really matters to them. They DO care about those things and if all things are equal they will choose the pretty toys over the worn out same-old/same-old. Plus, we are middle of the pack on the cost of attendance stipends.

                        Facilities Matter!

                          How are we doing in softball, gymnastics, lacrosse, volleyball, women's soccer? Foley engineered one of the greatest runs in NCAA athletic history. Gotta trust that the NEW ATHLETICS GAME hasn't passed him by. Has he outlived his AD lifespan?

                            Thank you. I've been saying this for a long time. Regardless of how many of your old asses feel about the new and shiny; youth do. Hell I'm in my mid 20s and I sometimes catch myself buying electronics or other stuff just because of all the bells and whistles.

                                But most of their players get bulked up in the weight room at the Leon County Corrections Center.

                                    Didn't we just build an indoor practice facility, upgrade the athlete dorms and start a 50 million dollar renovation of the O-Dome? Look, I'm hating Foley as much as the next guy, probably more on a day when the NCAA starts without us, but it's not accurate to say we refuse to upgrade. Late to the party? Sure. But it's not like we've done nothing.
