    Hate to SAY it, But...

    I have resisted commenting, at the very least while turning it all over further in admitted “slight confusion”, but the FACT is I still don’t know exactly what to think or say about the news about TT being offered the opportunity to try and make Urban Meyer’s Jaguars team as a TE. Everything...

    Geez—Not Even SMALLEST Consolation in the Dance

    I guess that is MY “bottom line point” above TOO! We damn well “SHOULDA” won THAT game, true enough—and the fact that we ended up just another “side-story patsy” in this year’s version of “The Big Dance” is the problem—with our B-ball program, yes, but in its own way sort of turned out to be the...

    Geez—Not Even SMALLEST Consolation in the Dance

    PS ...So yes, it is simply NECESSARY that we get together and support this Coaching regime, wish them well and see them through in their ongoing, long term in-process plan and effort to ultimately return us to the top once more: EVERYTHING depends upon it. Even, I would propose to you here and...

    Geez—Not Even SMALLEST Consolation in the Dance

    Not that I really EXPECTED anything different... I mean, the only real extended success we’ve ever had on the roundball side-of-things has been in years when our Football program was leading the way nationally. I don’t know WHAT the relationship is there, what seemingly obscure forces are at...

    How bad IS our recruiting?

    You both confirm and ratify my point above—and well-warn the “Gator Faithful” (or “idiot fans”—I can’t argue with that generalization) about their impatience AND premature over-reaction to results thus far and the pace of improvement: These latter concern me as well, obviously—But I am...

    How bad IS our recruiting?

    There’s a lotta talk “out there” about how “poorly” the Gators have generally recruited under Dan Mullens, at least relative to the so-called “elite” programs who’ve been noticeably grabbing the lion’s share of elite “5-Stars” out of highshools the last few years (even, noteably and...

    Review of the 2021 Florida Gators Recruiting Class, Transfers, and Recent 5-star Recruits

    There’s another point worth considering here—even more of course on the part of potential scholarship athletes and their professional hopes and dreams, but in a better world MIGHT be given more priority by ALL young people at a similar crossroad, not to mention among those who are paid to...

    LSU TE Arik Gilbert transfers to Florida

    I just take that “higher academic standards at UF”-thing as an assumed “given”—and once again am somewhat “blindsided” by the truth that so many of our fans (especially “from the area”, as opposed to alumni—though there seem no shortage of grads who appear to have forgotten this all-important...

    LSU TE Arik Gilbert transfers to Florida

    Yeah, but a big deal was made of this “portal grab” when it seemed to drop in our laps a little while back—“immediate recharge of ‘Kyle Pitts quality’, another 5-star no-less—just when we needed it, at a position we just took a big step-down in quality at”, supposedly... As for this being “one...

    The Grantham Question

    Well—a bit of a non-sequiter, but there it is. Especially that last part:Been found myself thinking exactly the same thing. Self-protection in my own “time of isolation”, after all (and the way we in Gator Nation “suffer from winning”, indeed! (Very clever line AND summation, that.) But things...

    Florida play Notre Dame in 2031 and 2032

    I have to support your reasoning here, E-. Certainly, among “logical lines of thought”, yours is most hopeful. I WANT you to be right in your thinking and resulting well-made points. After all, I was among those who just a season earlier thought Grantham was doing amazingly well with a...

    The Grantham Question

    @Escambia94, So: “Garbage”, on balance? But still perhaps NOT a slam-dunk “get rid of him!”, either...Certainly, the contrast between the talent brought in before he got here and that coming in since would seem to suggest at least the possibility that perhaps the future is not without promise...

    Florida play Notre Dame in 2031 and 2032

    In what way, Lf? “Pull a McElwain”, that is? Are you hinting at a possible deterioration in his principals and/or behavioral standards? Some kind of betrayal of his team and colleagues, for whatever personally flawed or innate, paranoia-based demons erupting from inside, inevitably manifesting...

    The Pounceys retire

    Yikes. As if I needed MORE evidence that I’m “OLD”.

    Florida play Notre Dame in 2031 and 2032

    Yeah—I can’t imagine what even HALF that many seasons might bring in changes from here...Frankly, at this point I don’t CARE to either! Sigh...As you specifically note, E—, given the absurd mob-think being purveyed by fans on (“anti-“)social media nowadays, ridiculous bs proposed by people who...

    Florida play Notre Dame in 2031 and 2032

    That ‘92 game was the one where the Spurrier-coached Gators HAD the lead and the Notre Dame offense stifled in the first half—until Irish Coach Lou Holtz completely reorganized his team’s approach on BOTH sides of the ball for the 2nd half...It was masterful: they didn’t’t actually overtake us...

    Review of the 2021 Florida Gators Recruiting Class, Transfers, and Recent 5-star Recruits

    Fact/bottom line remains: We won’t really have anything but “theory, analysis and supposition” until the 2021 season gets under way, right? No blame in that: So it goes, so it has always been. I appreciate (and for now, find solace IN) your reasoning and supporting evidence, E—.

    Review of the 2021 Florida Gators Recruiting Class, Transfers, and Recent 5-star Recruits

    SOUNDS as encouraging as HELL! Just hope the net results are all we continue to envision under Mullen (though with various conditional reservations of late, at least in some circles)...me, I’M torn between the stark, bottom line “staring-us-in-the-FACE” problems that keep cropping up (like...

    LSU TE Arik Gilbert transfers to Florida

    (God knows I am looking, searching for SOMETHING—a “LIFELINE” of HOPE I can grab to rekindle a sense of excited optimism after the way that “2020 HINDSIGHT of a Season” sort of deflated all of that when it came to my sense of this program, regime and where we and it seemed headed, after all.)...

    LSU TE Arik Gilbert transfers to Florida

    You may well be ON to something there, E—...though exactly WHAT (as in how that works and all it implies) is open to some extensive thought, analysis and/or debate: Therein may lie answers regarding all the questions raised BY the very “recruiting limitations” all UF Head Coaches but Meyer have...
