    Like I said, I would call it a potential trap game if Vandy had any kind of a chance of beating us, notwithstanding us being favored to win. In this particular instance, though, I don't see a trap looming. I don't give Vandy the chance they had in years past when they fielded more competitive teams.

    Now, if they somehow miraculously pull out a win because the Gators thought all they had to do was roll their helmets out on the field, then in retrospect it will have been a trap game. But I'm like ol' Ray Charles on that one. I just can't see it happening.

    Hence the trap.

      Kintucky and Vandy are basically the same team, although Kintucky has a better back (obviously).

        That’s what I remember. It was hard to find a place to park and tailgate for such a small crowd and then when you did you couldn’t sit by your car and enjoy a couple of morning cold beers before kickoff. The cops were out enforcing open-container law on Gator fans.

        I was there for the '96 game when that kid for Vandy was playing the Gators refused to recruit. He had a career day but still came up short on the score board. Since I had never been there before when Vandy scored and that damn horn blasted I nearly jumped out of my socks. Vanderbilt himself was one weird bird so the rest of the school following suit in its weirdness is expected. And the school name.....Commodores? Really? In Tennessee? Vanderbilt was supposed to be an eccentric and wore different "outfits" like naval dress. But if you have money who going to question your sanity? Strange school and campus all around.

          I was there. Officials (that all despised SOS ) were doing there best to even it up. Most of the officals back then were insurance salesman from Alabuma and Georgia. AND VANDY always has some local Fla kid that plays lights out for them against I think that kid was also from Ocala. Ralph Webb was just another in a long line of them.

              No, it was no joke. Just a lack of comprehending what I wrote on the part of the Donkster. Most likely due to Posting Under the Influence.

              Yeah, yeah. :rolleyes: You're doing that thing you do where you misread or misunderstand what somebody wrote, and then when called out on it, pretend you were just f**king around or busting balls the whole time.

              For those keeping score at home, the "flagship" university of a state university system is not a matter of opinion or subjectivity. It's a factual and inarguable designation. Here is a list of the flagship universities of the public university systems in each of the 50 states. Except for Vanderbilt, every SEC East school is on the list, and so is UNC.

                Yeah, the only real issue I have with this board is that occasionally someone will come in and post something completely out of the blue that's really not pertinent to the thread. Other than that, no complaints.

                  I thought that was a feature.

                    I was there in 96 as well and do remember no tailgating and a game closer than it should have been. I got stinking drunk on music row after the game and remember taking a leak in the middle of the parking lot after leaving the bars, and it was snowing pretty good. That was a great trip!
                    At least Ralph Webb is no longer on their team - do they have any other local kids we need to worry about holding grudges against us? :lol:
                    There's a few FLA kids on their roster, the closest to G'ville is a Soph. RB from Jax.

                    I wasn’t but I was a DZ bus boy with a bunch of Delts. Got to know them well and hung out with quite a few of them. Good dudes, lots of fun.

                      Cool. I was a Fall 86 Delt pledge and was a tri-delt busboy for a year.

                            Well, it looks like you were and are taking donk’s reply literally. Donk has no limits in his methods to take shots at anyone he doesn’t like (including the voles). Facts don’t matter to the Donk in a sports message board.
