    This ignorant statement gets repeated by every moron almost every year.

    Sometimes it gets repeated by "even SOS struggled against Vandy". We've done it before but here we go:
    1990-91 did not play
    1992 41-21
    1993 52-0
    1994 24-7
    1995 38-7
    1996 28-21 **** THERE YA GO. THEY PLAYED US CLOSE UNDER SOS!!!!
    1997 20-7
    1998 45-13
    1999 13-6 *** ONE MORE WOOT!
    2000 43-20
    2001 71-13
    So Vandy played us close in 1996 and 1999 under SOS, hardly often.

    2002 21-17 **** ZOOKER TIME
    2003 35-17
    2004 34-17
    Same same under Zookie, one close game.


    2005 49-42 **** CUM'S FIRST YEAR, VANDY HAD THAT NFL QB
    2006 25-19 ***
    2007 49-22
    2008 42-14
    2009 27-3
    2010 55-14
    So, they played CUM close in 05 and 06. Hardly often.

    2011 26-21 *** UNTIL HE DOESNT
    2012 31-17
    2013 17-34 *** LOL BUT PUMPERS SAY NO ONE CAN WIN WITH ALL THE INJURIES CHIMP'S TEAM HAD
    2014 34-10
    Played us close 2 out of 4 times vs Dwagchump.


    2015 9-7 *** A BUTTERIFFIC GAME FOR SURE
    2016 13-6 *** MORE BUTTERIFFIC
    2017 38-24
    I guess two out of three equals usually playing us close under Butters too.

    2018 37-27
    2019 56-0


    No, they don't always play us close. They certainly didnt always play us close under SOS. They play us close every now and then, and usually only when we have a garbage coach.

      Probably the same people that say Kentucky plays us close every year. I debunked that one a few weeks back. Thanks for debunking the Vandy myth.

            Some folks would call the OP a straw man. Other folks would call the OP the mealy mouthed ravings of an habitual bad faith liar and perjurer before the court. And sometimes some folks are other folks too.

                Getting back to reality, the statement was made that Vandy has been consistently “destroyed” by all quality UF coaches. I take issue with that. Let’s assume that destroyed is equivalent to blown out. Well what is meant by blown out? I await your definitions, but in the meanwhile allow me to suggest a few principles (though principles are admittedly an unusual commodity in certain quarters, but I digress):

                1. The margin of victory should exceed the losing team’s score.
                2. The margin of victory should exceed 21 points.
                3. The contest should have become uncompetitive before the fourth quarter.

                Sound reasonable?

                Let’s apply those suggestions to the record of SOS and UM vs Vandy. What do we discover?

                SOS 10-0 vs Vandy
                5 blowout victories

                UM 6-0 vs Vandy
                4 blowout victories

                UM consistently blew out Vandy. He also had 2 close games. SOS did not consistently blow out Vandy. A couple of those games are on the margin of blowing out. Two games were legitimately close. 1-3 others were legitimately competitive.

                This case rests, mother f u cker.

                      I'm just glad Vandy didn't play us tough again this year. We need a break from the cardiac comeback kids we've had to deal with over the years.

                            You’re such a coward. I realize you’re a lawyer in the habit of murdering truth and disregarding every vestige of honor, but would it really harm you psychologically to consider the arguments of your opponents in their own right, without the need to lie about them?

                            So no, losing by 20 is obviously not legitimately close, nor did I say that it was. But it might be legitimately competitive depending on how the game played out, as I made clear with the “1-3” range. The margin was less than their score in 1992, so it’s conceivable that the game was “legitimately competitive.”

                            You don’t have to lie to win arguments, as s hole. You might even be right, I’ll let the public be the judge. I don’t find it anathema to my further existence that I could possibly be proven wrong. How else do you learn anything new?

                                  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.

                                  The management works very hard to make sure the community is running the best software, best designs, and all the other bells and whistles. Care to buy us a non-alcoholic Zima? We'd really appreciate it! Just click the "Donate" tab at the top of the page.
