I sure miss rog.

Maybe this thread should be stickied for just another week, for any posters who don't show up until the season starts?

Unbelievable!!! Rog was an awesome guy and treasure. He and I would talk about his time in Floyd VA. I lived near there in Blacksburg when I was in college. He loved that area. Also, the toothbrush jokes are about WV. LOL. My condolences to the family. He will be dearly missed!

I’m crushed by this news. I haven’t been on GC for a while. A new work contract and some family health issues have overwhelmed my life for most of the past year. Time flies... I told myself this morning “I need to catch up with the boys on GC” and immediately thought “I wonder how ol Rog is doing”, and laughed at all the hilarious stuff he’s said over the years. Rog was a treasure and a huge loss. I’m gonna miss him. So sad…

Just logged on as I've been relocating for the last month. This was hard to swallow. Many of you have said exactly what everyone has been feeling about @Rog.

I'm not a good message boarder, I have real feelings and sometimes they get hurt, Rog was a very kind person and would always try to make someone laugh or feel better.

Great guy Rog was. I'll miss you buddy!! Thanks for always being kind, the world is a bit dimmer without you in it. See you in Heaven pal!

I’m not a crier. And when I saw this at the top of the threads I thought for sure it was a joke from Rog himself. And 5 second into reading this this morning I found myself tearing up.

He was so damn smart. When he first began posting, I found his posts difficult to understand. And very strange in structure. I’d even say pentameter in form. But as he posted more and more I began to really see his brilliance. You couldn’t just quickly skim what he wrote. You actually had to READ what he wrote. Otherwise you would miss the point he was making.

I remember several years back he had some sort of operation. I think maybe a cardiac procedure? And he was gone from the board for a few weeks and we were all worried that he didn’t make it. There was a huge sense of relief when he began posting again. Although it wasn’t initially in his normal witty banter. It took him several months to get back up to full throttle witty posting again.

The thing that impacted me the most from your post was the love you have for him. I could feel it in every sentence. And although he may have struggled in the love department as you stated, he for sure did not lack in love from people like you around him.

To put his impact in perspective a bit:

My wife does not read this board. I share a post every now and then. And she is familiar with the writings of a few posters. (Cooter being one). She got her degree in Literature and when I relayed this to her this morning, She said “is that the guy whose posts read like poetry?”
Very well said Gator J. His writing caught my attention the same as it did you. Rog was one of the main reasons I joined this group. When it's my time to pass, my remains well be scattered the same.

This ones for you Rog.

Gal on twitter this morning I’m friends with posted “ Gator football fuels my soul”

I replayed “well fill her up Gators”

she replied back thanking me for all the private messages from Gators wanting to ”fill or feel her up“ said I must not watch much pornhub.
told her I was just showing my age when you actually said that at a gas station

Go Gators

Here I am, late to the funeral, as usual.

Anyway, Rog was a master of his craft. I emulate him daily with my wife and kids, but I don't have half the ability he had. He found a way to make a pun out of any word, sentence, or situation. His brilliance with that is unmatched. He'll be missed.

I haven't been on the board in a while and just saw this last night. I'm still at a loss for words. I just finished reading every post in the thread and you all said everything perfectly. Rog will be missed every day and remembered every game

RIP Rog, Go Gators

I have massive amount of extended family in Callahan. They confirmed knowing Dr.
Harrison.

In addition, do we have a Dr. Gerald Burford on here? Fernandina? Also a huge Gator fan.
