Be afraid, be very afraid
I love you corch, but like a wayward child you drive me nuts.
Bottom line is that we all suffered miserably from 2009-2018. The pain of UF football was like trying to pass a kidney stone for 9 years. We laughed, we cried and we punched the walls but still no relief. Until now. All the while the ‘chatter was our pain killer. Lets hope our relief is not temporary. Go Gators!!!
Your daughter is very smart.
Corch is our crazy uncle
The greatest advice you'll ever hear is this: the people who don't matter... don't f*cking matter. Too many people in the world are worried about what others think. Who cares? If they weren't there when you were born or married, or planning to be there when you're on your deathbed, it's just an opinion. We've got tons of those here. No use in getting riled up over them. Stick around long enough, and you may actually end up calling a few of us friends. Even the ones you disagree with. This is hands down the best Gator site on the internet. A lot of passionate people in here, all with the same hope: another national championship for the Gators. Speak your piece, stand by it, and have fun. Welcome aboard. PS - Dan Mullen is a mediocre coach, who has hit his ceiling... maybe.
I can relate, my Butters hate drove me to my first post, which resulted in me learning how to make a video GIF to share my outrage, and was a long cat post right out of the box. "Coach" Mac doesn't coach during games Since then, my down-vote to post ratio is higher than our resident a$$, so I must be doing something right.
Georgia Southern turned me into a lurker, Butters made we join and post. I needed the group therapy!
Hahaha... advising someone to not give a f*ck about what others thinks got me a dislike from my old buddy, Law. I swear, you just can't depend on anyone these days. Good thing I don't give a f*ck!
Dislikes are Law’s love language.
Welcome out of the shadows! The honest opinions of posters here fall into 2 categories: 1) Immediate gratification - Mullen isn't going to get us to an NC or SEC Championship at all, so cut bait now and bring in someone who will 2) Incremental progress - as long as Mullen keeps things on an upward trendline, there is no reason to believe he can't bring the Gators back to championship glory over the next 1-3 years Honest opinion posts make up anywhere from 30-50% of posts here depending on how things are going with the games, and recruiting, "the only thing that matters 82.4% of the time". The remainder are "troll posts" that aren't the honest opinions of the posters, but are extremes that are put out there to generate an impassioned response by people taking the other side of the extreme. The challenge is in separating the honest opinion posts that you want to respond to with your own honest opinion, and in deciding whether to invest any time feeding the trolls with responses to their posts. While many message boards have people who either troll or they do not, almost anyone at GCMB can be found guilty of trolling from time to time, which makes it a lot less easy to separate wheat from chaff as you might find at other places.
I’d add a third category: Persona non grata. There are certainly people here who never believed in Mullen and likely never will regardless. Only other thing I’d add in disagreement with your otherwise tremendous post, no1g8r, is that the amount of “honest opinion” posts is likely 85-95%. Trolling is not as much an issue as you think.
No I retired. Wife said 20 was enough. Now I'm a contractor living in Buckeye country (Dayton, OH). It's cold now but otherwise nice.
Ok, I will leave a post. Swamp Donkey this is for you!
I probably overestimated, and you probably underestimated. I’m too young to be as cynical as I was, and you’re too old to be that naive. Maybe closer to 60% honest and 40% troll posts.
Oh, shut up!
Lol funny you mention that live in Ohio... maybe you and @Swamp Donkey could get real close. If memory serves, he’s from that neck of the woods.
You should get a dislike for even mentioning that directional school!
I set the bar pretty high when I joined a month or so after Ox started the board....These f vckers threw everything but the kitchen sink at me for about 3 years before deciding they couldn't find a way to get rid of me...It's probably a good thing there wasn't a "Dislike" button at the time..... Come to think of it it's probably a good thing that there is a "Donation Button"....
