        Who cares? My office is right around the corner from an Offerdahl's, I've seen John mopping more than once. Still, someone should post a vid of the Zooker playing janitor on youtube.

            Ox, I was at UF when Graves was there. 8-4 was a good year.

              That wasn't the argument, at least not at my end. My argument is that had Zook been hired before Spurrier, he would have been a 4-8 coach, not a 8-4 coach.

                First off, John Offerdahl has been bankrupt for years - you occasionally see him panhandling. Secondly, it's his own failing business, so mopping his own floors makes a little more sense since he can't afford to pay an employee to do it.

                Zook did it (and it about to start doing it again) for a local bank because he was broke and needed the money. Perhaps it's gambling or alimony or something, because whatever money he makes is gone FAST.

                So that's why the hatred. You were casing that bank and the mere presence of superhero Zook foiled your heist.

                  Brooks was the best ever, especially on defense. There was nothing wrong with DeCinces, except that he wasn't brooks. Although the last couple years Brooks was sad to watch, especially at the plate. Those were good time for the Os. Not so much since then.

                          Only on Gatorchatter could a thread about Ron Zook turn into a discussion of Hall of Fame 3rd baseman Brooks Robinson.

                            When Graves was there, we only played a 10 game season, 11 if we went to a bowl. We didn't have 11 game seasons until 1970.

                              Ha.

                              It looks like we have 3 Maryland guys on this thread from a similar time frame to Md. Personally, I have been in Fl now for longer than Md, thankfully. :bananadance2:

                              BTW - I didn't believe you about Zook working at a bank, thought it was just hyperbole.

                              Whats wrong about sweeping a bank floor? I guess its akin to buying stuff at a DG.

                              Here's why the Zooker was so frustrating. In 2003-2004, we lost 6 games in a 20 game stretch in the last 2 minutes.

                              9/6/03 Miami Ahead 33-10 with 6 minutes to go in the third quarter, Brock Berlin led Miami back with 28
                              unanswered points to win. The last TD came with 1:51 left.
                              10/4/03 Ole Miss Ole Miss scores with 1:10 left to win
                              11/29/03 FSU The Swindle in the Swamp. FSU scores with 1:00 remaining to win.
                              9/18/04 Tenn Tennessee kicks winning field goal with 0:13 left
                              10/9/04 LSU LSU scores winning TD with 0:33 left
                              20/23/04 MSU Mississippi State scores a touchdown with 1:44 left to win

                              Honorable Mention:
                              10/18/03 Arkansas Ahead by 33-7 with 9:00 left in the 4th Quarter, Matt Jones leads a comeback that falls
                              short when he fumbles as they were driving down the field to lose 33-28

                                He also handed eventual national champ LSU their only loss of the season and he did it at their "vaunted" Death Valley starting a freshman QB.

                                How can anyone give Ron Zook even a shred of credit for that win? Even a blind hog, etc etc.

                                      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.
