      I think everybody should recognize that Meyer wouldn't lie...

      Well... he wouldn't lie about this... right? I mean.. he is being completely honest about this.

        Clearly the beginnings of Meyer sucking up to us so he can come back in 3 years once Mullen gets fired :stirpot:

          The nature of the student body has indeed changed. We visited the campus last October for the first time in 25 years and I couldn't believe the interactions (or lack thereof). The union was filled with young folks sitting together staring at phones. Just no sense of joy at all. No southern hospitality. Way too many non-southern folks; I'd be no one would stand up for Dixie. I was so disappointed.

                  Of course. He waits for a situation to appear where a coach leaves a very talented roster. Zook at UF, Tressel at OSU, now Helton at USC.

                  Side note... isn’t it funny how the SEC catches a bunch of crap about their programs but OSU has fires its last two coach after scandals? Media bias at its finest.

                    This argument doesn’t hold water when you see other schools have student sections who are just as crazy as they were 10, 20, 30 years ago. Those schools actually allow kids in that didn’t get 1600 on their SAT’s.

                      Well we’ve obviously ceded our football program to the lesser sports and making ourselves the Stanford of the south...this is gonna hurt us more than we realize on the surface cause we’re just getting started down this path

                        uhh.. when were you there? I don't remember anything 'southern' about UF from my time there except for the kids that came from Georgia and Tennessee.

                          Is this southern enough for you?

                              Only if those schools are winning and entertaining like they were 10, 20, and 30 years ago. We are not in that category any longer thanks to a long list of fk ups (Meyer not being among them. He’s one of the few connected to the program in the last 18 years who actually helped the overall situation).

                              One of my many regrets in life is not driving up for that free show. The ambiance at the old Lake Alice Bandshell was terrific. Saw Betts solo at Lake Alice my senior year.
