    Can we womp?

    It's obvious you watched very little of the game. Had you watched the entire game, you would have known that Holgorsen called a bunch of swing passes early to get the ball into the hands of playmakers and get Grier into the game flow, hence a big reason why the low pass-per-yards number.

    Let's take a look at the second-half numbers, shall we?

    13-of-23, 254 yards, two TDs, no picks

    That translates to 19.53 yards a catch during the most critical portion of the game, clutch time, a portion that had Grier showing off the arm and lightning delivery with shots downfield that repeatedly dented V-Tech's secondary.

    Let's also not forget the fourth-and-5 at the V-Tech 37 with 33 seconds left. Grier ran right, dodged a defender and hurtled another. It was a gritty and clutch run that kept the potentially game-tying (or winning had they gone for two) drive alive.

    Let's also not forget second-and-10 at the V-tech, same drive. Grier calmly moves around the pocket to buy time, surveys the field, and delivers a catchable ball to Sills in the endzone. The receiver dropped the ball.

    If the receiver catches the ball, Grier's performance is etched into West Virginia football lore. As it is, a remarkable night for a kid who hadn't played in two years.

    WOMP.

    Sas, I'm getting quite the chuckle out of you trying to demonize a kid who came to Florida to be a Gator, who went in front of the cameras and apologized for his mistake and pleaded not once, but twice with his coach to forgive and not forget him. He WANTED to be a Gator, and guess what? We aren't growing Will Grier types on trees around here.

    And you call him a cokehead. I'm not sure who's been doing the blow today, him or you.

      I know a guy who knows a guy. After a little HGH, he’ll grow a new finger in no time.

        Since the purpose was to irritate people like yourself, mission accomplished. :yes:

        I'm sure as Grier throws for 500+ yards tonight we'll have to keep hearing about how he really wasn't that good.

          I don't think GNC has anything for that.

              The thing is that anybody can watch Grier and see how he actually throws the ball and realize that this isn't your average QB. Its obvious.

                      Let me know when we beat an FCS level team this bad.

                      Hell let me know when we score 35 points in a game much less a half.

                        It does matter because he was run out of Gainesville on a rail while we have the worst stable of QB's in the nation.

                            Ladies, Ladies! There's enough of Will Grier's beautiful, glistening, future Heisman trophy winning man-meat to go around for all of you. Please calm yourselves down and get in line.

                            This reminds me an awful lot of the love sid, DC etc., were giving Cam Newton. Suddenly everyone who was "down" with the guy couldn't miss an Auburn game each week.

                              My friend, I could not possibly care less if WVU went 0-12. I'm not a WVU fan, I just like Grier and enjoy watching him play. Nothing more, nothing less. He made a mistake here, but should have been given another chance like everyone else on the damn team who screws up. It sucks.

                                It isn't just about stats. It's about watching a guy command the offense. Dude was a boss out there. It sucks that he's gone.

                                  I haven't been around for a long time, but if I recall correctly didn't Law always remind us he played one good half, and we were all just suffering from wishful thinking when we stated he was obviously a star QB in the making?

                                    On this issue? God yes. But I wouldn't do that because you're my favorite poster.

                                    What really bothers me is I don't think you're being honest. You do care. If you didn't care, you wouldn't have such outright hatred for Grier. You're pissed off about our Gators (understandable) and this Grier situation really bugs you as a result. It's a totally natural reaction, not sure why you aren't honest about it.

                                    I'm planning to sit home tonight and watch a real QB and a real passing offense sling it around. Sometimes I forget what one looks like.

                                        If someone can give me a logical explanation as to why Mac sent Grier packing but continues to give Calloway chance after chance, I'm all ears.

                                                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.
