    If only I didn’t wake up in a third world country where elections are rigged I would have felt even better

      "... the cracks in the program's foundation were obvious to anyone who cared to look deeper: A coach who flirted with a seemingly endless string of deep-pocketed suitors. A contentious power struggle among the program's leadership. Demands for bigger and better facilities stressing an already tight budget. A pervasive attitude of entitlement within the locker room. Declining academic performance. And a string of high-profile, off-field trouble that bruised the program's reputation."

      Oh.The.Humanity.

      This is Karma with a capital 'K.' You can only ride dirty for so long before justice catches up to you.

      BTW, that US News ranking, (UF is ranked 6th), is strictly bullshyt. The factors they use to rank colleges have absolutely nothing to do with academics or the value/quality of the degree you receive. They use measurement factors like "social mobility", how much debt you end up with and drop out rate. Florida State is ranked in the low to mid 100s by organizations that measure academic quality.

        I read about half of the ESPN piece this morning. It’s a story of excess, more excess followed by excessive miscalculation. The main thing is they’re broke and broken down. That isn’t easily fixable without massive cheating.

            I didn't see it this morning, I just now came across that article. And I mean that literally. Pardon me while I go clean off my laptop.

                As a fellow alum of Weimer Hall you'll appreciate this.

                As I was reading that very long article I found myself impressed with the thoroughness and depth of the reporting of the lead author, Andrea Adelson. I said to myself, "Self, I wonder where she acquired her sterling research and writing skills? I think I will Google her."

                  I read it this afternoon and it was a nice read.

                  FSU is like Miami around the Coker era. It'll take them 15 years to rebuild, if they can.

                      I won’t mince words. Given the recent revelations regarding the noles booster, when I saw you had replied to this thread, I was terrified to open it.

                          Keep the political crap out and get back to bashing the Noles. If anyone hasn't read that article, they had better do it or face a ban.

                            No one GAF about "public rankings". No one. There are no big firms that hire top public students. They hire top students maybe and if you arent top10 maybe top 20 with enough honors and accolades.

                            Do you know who the top 20 private football teams are? No one cares about these ridiculous asterisks.

                                          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.
