      Trying to remember the last time we beat Trailerbammer or Clown Tech.

      How many losses does it take to get owned?

      Are they not owning us because we had that two TD offensive explosion once vs Trailerbammer?

        There is some truth in this. I have seen a change for the better and hopefully you keep it up!

            Then you have no reason to criticize if Threat is following your lead.

            That doesn't make sense. I have noticeably toned it down. And that's coming from other posters. So he wouldn't be following my lead at all.

            And my jab at threat in partly tongue in cheek...partly.

              I saw the other comments after my post. I hadn't noticed, but I'm not the most observant guy. Good on you for toning it down!

                  I left in the first place because of stuff like this. When the negativity overrides people's ability to admit when Mac and UF do something good, there's a problem. We can win our bowl game 30-3, finish top 10 in recruiting, etc etc etc, but people still find a way to diminish any accomplishments Mac has. I'm not 100% sold on Mac either, but im rooting for him to succeed because I'm a Gator fan and want championships and titles to come to UF. Beyond that, I want Mac to win here to shut the incessant negativity up from a small fringe of Gators that have overran this board for a couple of years now. What Mac has done has been impressive. It's not where we need to be in the end, but I can see us working in the direction we need to go. Even though I don't post here anymore, the few times I have read it over the year I have been gone, it appears that there are still the same sort of problems. The place looks great Ox. If I can get back into it, I'll hang around and try to post some more.

                  Go Gators!

                            Good luck. Youre going to have to look long and hard to find someone more stubborn than me.

                            I dont believe in bullshyt or hope and dreams.

                            You will wear me down when the shyt on the field is gone and we look like a team that actually occasionally practices offense and special teams.

                              Your response lacks humor. You should work on that.

                                  Lurked for ages GSMB to here... usually out of boredom and hoping to find some nugget of wisdom or news that doesn't show up on /r/FloridaGators.

                                  It seems like you have a group of the same people that have developed their little shtick, and can't seem to let it go. Maybe it got a few laughs the first couple times, so they repeat it. Honestly this is the biggest factor that prevents me from visiting more and contributing. Examples: changing a coaches name (Muscramp, Chump, etc) ad nauseum, or making fun of our coaches teeth... Being an odd zealot for a certain player (Trask, Pinero, etc). That was all annoying, but tolerable. Now the shtick has devolved to just being doom-and-gloom. UF has legit successes that should be lauded, and people crap all over it - not because they really believe it, but because its their little "routine" that they've become identified with.

                                  Anyways, you asked.
