            I don't think anything should bear the name of any person who has ever made a mistake. Think of the simplification.

              Let's hope that remains an oft-repeating pattern.

                    I remember being at a nulls game in ‘87 with my boss (hey..free tickets and some brownie points), Deion baited the QB by lagging behind the WR and then put on an incredible burst of speed at the last second for an INT.
                    Sh*tty tackler, but that was one fast dude.

                      Can't find a tweet yet, but starting FSU Sr. LB Emmett Rice tore an ACL in practice.

                        FSU just hired Randy Shannon as a Defensive Analyst. Not gonna lie, these are the types of moves that Mullen should be making, but instead we continue to watch rivals do while we bring on the occasional no-name from a small, regional school. Not only do we not get the ex-coaches that actually bring in some more knowledge and name recognition, but we continue to have a much smaller support staff. Very frustrating.

                        Ex-Miami HC Shannon joins rival FSU as analyst

                          I agree, getting former P5 head coaches hired on as an analyst is a good thing....but they can have Randy Shannon. That dude Peter Principal'd years before he became the head coach at Miami.

                            Took the words right out of my mouth. I've been vocal about wanting to see us add more analyst/support positions. But I don't want to see us add a name, just for the sake of adding a name. Randy Shannon is beyond outdated at this point. And frankly even his recruiting sucks(Brunson, Rayshad Jackson). Even when he did bring in decent kids, he made it about him not UF(Divaad Wilson). I expect the same type of passion and commitment from him at miami's other rival.

                                UCF is probably paying Shannon’s salary this year. So Norvell gets a hook into Miami on the cheap and a free look at Shannon’s value and work ethic....

                                Seriously? If the hardest battle in your spiritual life is a torn ACL, you missed the entire point of the historic Christian faith.

                                  Nah, I don't quite have that take.
                                  We can say that with the benefit of added years of wisdom, but to a 20~ yr old athlete who's been playing football for most of the last decade as more or less a full-time commitment, this is a huge setback to to his dream and by extension, his present life.

                                  Seems like the exaxt thing to reach out to God for, per our Christian faith.

                                  Hate him with every fiber of our being for the disgusting and ungodly uniform he wears, by all means though. :D

                                    Yeah, a bit of an overreaction on my part. I just hate fsu so much. I can’t help it.

                                        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.
