    Recruiting Update: Summer 2022 Edition

    (...and by the way: There's ALREADY a growing negative undercurrent regarding the specifics of Rashada's late flip, the "taylored manipulation" of his N.I.L. "deal" (exactly what many feared about its development, especially in the hands of "certain historically underhanded" programs), and the...

    Recruiting Update: Summer 2022 Edition

    @Escambia94, ...And honestly--I'm NOT challenging you: Indeed, my question is an honest, open one bereft of "attitude", in this case...but you DID use the phrase, "anywhere but Florida" to describe some seemingly implied trend in attitude spreading among higher-ranked upper-classmen among...

    Recruiting Update: Summer 2022 Edition

    What are you implying here? Is there really some "anywhere but Florida" trend among higher profile Fla prep recruits? As things stand, I (and not a few others) suspect some "gray-area" (at BEST) hanky-panky regarding that last-moment Rashad flip...but between the way those monied thugs down...

    Recruiting Update: Summer 2022 Edition

    No, in the "quality vs quantity" pursuits ahead, we need to somehow figure deeper, more subtle factors than solely "how many STARS" in our evaluations and eventual choices. Mind you, these are essentially still KIDS at this point; we cannot expect or restrict ourselves to some theoretical...

    Recruiting Update: Summer 2022 Edition

    Yes. And in that spirit of placing "blame for our frustrations" in the right place and context, let's focus our attention and respond for example on the latest growing "mess" with this Rashada recruitment... To wit, I am getting the strong feeling that this is going off the rails--and all the...

    Recruiting Update: Summer 2022 Edition

    You're probably right. But let's face it: We are COUNTING on our new Coach's energy and growing rep as a "communicator" AND energetic, even CHARISMATIC leader one-on-one out there to yield certain benefits--above all a return to consistent "buzz" come each NSD, etc. We have GOT to find ourselves...

    Recruiting Update: Summer 2022 Edition

    Meanwhile, with the latest back'n'forth vis-a-vis Jayden Rashada's imminent decision, I am at a loss as to our real progress in returning to recruiting prominence. We all pretty well accept the propositions that (1) We had fallen pretty far behind UGA and the Tide (or, to put it another way...

    Recruiting Update: Summer 2022 Edition

    Excellent, penetratimg analysis all around, E. But given all of it (past, present and likely future--as in actual schedule ahead for 2022), I remain "cautiously guarded" with respect to our likely perfomance in the coming season... It may feel "disappointing, even 'ugly' " along the way. but we...

    Recruiting Update: Summer 2022 Edition

    We are REALLY heading into "the Dog Days" now, right? And at the same time, I can't say I'm real excited at our chances for the coming season, no matter WHAT. No, I fear 2023 is likely to be our real "hope on the horizon". Wishin', hopin' I'm wrong--but that's my current self-protective...

    Recruiting Update: Summer 2022 Edition

    We seem to be picking up prospects--with the seeming promise of "more on the way"... Guess I'm Iike everyone else, still waiting, HOPING something exciting is announced.

    Gators in the USFL

    What do y'all really think of the play in the USFL so far? I mean, in order for non-gambmers to be wooed towards a spring pro-football-watching habit, you'd think it would take SOME combination of standard in rules, talent, and advancement in scheming of some kind in order for it to be...

    Recruiting Update: Summer 2022 Edition

    Loved this list--yes, as a "trip down memory lane", but MORE for what it's lower levels suggest about how rich (in talent AND potential "future mythology") our story really IS... NOW: I was torn on where to include the only other "ongoing news" that has continued to goad us during this...

    Official Game Thread: Orange and Blue Game 2022 (4/14/2022)

    (Side note: With this latest "last second miss" on that 3-star who jumped to Miami through the transfer portal, there are of course those among us seeing this in the worst possible light; I understand this, given our needs AND the recent history vis a vis our recruiting in general... At the same...

    Official Game Thread: Orange and Blue Game 2022 (4/14/2022)

    AR15 looked REAL good--thankyou very much. Surprisingly enough, Napier's "bring-over" at RB, Montrel Johnson, looked the best of all three expected to be a strong trio replacing last year's first string set at the position. Tight ends (in a group severely truncated-by-injury and graduation)...

    Soon Here: Spring Ball On the Way!

    (1 week later: So far, having "seen/heard" the little we've had access and exposure to so far, I AM at least already excited to see the parts begin to be assembled abd displayed ON THE FIELD: This is shaping up to be ONE "Orange vs Blue" game--whatever it is "called" and however it is in fact...

    Emory Jones is leaving

    "HOPEFULLY" is right--this ongoing up/down, push/pull, FLIP/FLOP routine he's been acting out for a number of reasons, seasons and situations now needs to resolve itself once and for all: His sake and ours. (So MUCH so I think we can and OUGHT to approach/ANNOUNCE this with the posting of a...

    Mike White Accepts Job at Georgia

    Says something about the man, the Coach--and the JUDGMENT of those in charge of overseeing the growth/evolution of our whole sports management side-of-things, no?

    Soon Here: Spring Ball On the Way!

    I keep waiting, hoping for some "big splash" to come along, something in the way of some "late additions" to this class, maybe a surprise or two from the transfer portal, that sort of thing... But no matter what, at this point just the full new staff and actual 2022 line-up in person together on...

    Mike White Accepts Job at Georgia

    Frankly, about TIME he was "Gator Bait" rather than "Gator Coach". It feels like we have come full circle, back to general irrelevance and mediocrity in the "headline sports programs" in the long years since I first followed (and eventually attended) UF. Question: At what point do we take a...

    USFL Draft 2022/2023: Any Chance to convince Emory Jones to join the USFL?

    LOL...Well, at least I think we can be FAIRLY certain they won’t have SS coaching them this time! But seriously: It’s hard to say WHAT Emory’s intentions OR “remaining opportunities” are at this point. Either HE’S not sure himself, or he’s playing his cards extremely close to his vest at...
