    Asking the Obvious Question

    Clearly we are into the pre-August “summer doldrums” now—so maybe this is the inevitable time the boredom and impatience would spur just such thoughts: the ongoing “same old story” has made it a prime topic too... “Why in the HELL can we not grab, at the very least, ‘our reasonable share’ of...

    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

    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?

    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...

    The Grantham Question

    Well, the Decision has been MADE, so it would SEEM that for the moment at least, we are just gonna have to just SEE the results—and for the moment, LIVE with them. Mullen chose to more or less just make a wholesale change at the next level DOWN from DC, and we are left to hope and pray that he’s...

    Don’t Look Now, But Here Comes 2021

    Yup. If you just start hitting links and pushing buttons here at Google on your phone now, suddenly now new threads, posts and recruiting info here you NOW start getting all KINDS OF NEW STUFF. Least I do. ...and THAT’S OK! In fact, considering the nature of some of the latest (eg. hyping a...

    Alright—Here We Go:

    So. First of all, that game Saturday WAS the CFB Semifinal Playoff. We just BARELY lost to what was unquestionably the No. 1 Football Team in College Football. But we are almost THERE: We are missing some parts, and will HAVE to rebuild and re-ADAPT AS WE RE-CLIMB that “road to greatness”...For...

    Patience: Check this space soon

    LOL... Yes, I am showing the nerve, the utter GALL of warning y’all that I have been watching, thinking, analyzing and yes, contemplating as I thoughtfully COMPOSE what I intend to be “AN IMPORTANT THREAD TO END THE 2020 SEASON” for us here at GE—for the Gators in general, if you will indulge...

    RIP (Really!) Chuck Yeager

    Just wanted to note the passing today (December 7, 2020–already “a date that will live in infamy...”) of one of MY heroes, “right stuff” test-pilot who broke the “sound barrier” in the Bell X-1. One more loss in what has been a memorably NASTY year already. But he had a long and meaningful life...

    What’s This ‘Mullens-To-Texas’ BS??!

    I mean, it IS “BS”, right? I just do NOT take it seriously. It all started with “URBAN MEYER to Texas” rumors, and his supposedly being interviewed at luxury Hill Country golf resort here at Horseshoe Bay (ALL MAINLY based, believe it or DON’T, on examination and comparison of on-air shots of...

    My Latest Theory...

    As per the title here, “my latest theory” is simply this: Like myself, EVERYONE IS GETTING LAZY...and fed up! At least when it comes to fans and supposed “media experts”—and let’s face it, these latter folks are really just “more folks like us” who have had the luck and/or brains to figure or...

    Week 13: #6 Florida 34, Kentucky Wildcats 10 - 11/28/2020

    It’s less than 9 hours to kick-off in this one, I’m up anyway so I figured I’d put up the “Gameday Thread” for this game, since it isn’t up already. It’s Thanksgiving weekend, after all—who KNOWS who’s busy with family, etc or what; I figure E- has had other duties and/or responsibilities, for...

    A Puncher’s Chance

    Funny how a night’s sleep can somehow “put a new slant on things”. I won’t say that the change in my thinking is “like night and day”, exactly—No, in this case more like “flicking the porch light on”! To wit: I have been harping pessimistically on that whole “cliches/K.I.S.S./Just WIN”-thing...

    That Damn TAMU Loss—BUT:

    Well, now we know how MUCH a late-4th qtr fumble can cost you... Personally, of course, after the involuntary “covid-break” followed by Gator DOMINANCE, I feel like we should have slipped BY A&M in the first CFB Playoff rankings—to be ranked 5th (rather than 6th) in the rankings—mainly because...

    Pitts Back

    That’s all. But that’s enough! (Feel me?) I doubt we’ll see any repeat of their last visit to The Swamp (streak-breaker). Now MY main specific focus will tend to be on the Gator Defense: You KNOW the CFB Playoff Committee will be evaluating us AND the game’s score and outcome through the prism...

    Lookin Ahead...

    Don’t know about y’all, but after seeing our game against Vandy earlier, AND having at this point at least monitored most of the others playing/played so far today, I look ahead and recognize that NOTHING will “just be handed to us”: If we are to “win out” on our way to the SEC Championship and...

    K.I.S.S. (Kyle Trask for Heisman)

    Okay, I WILL: Kyle Trask and our offense is “ALREADY THERE”! Never mind what the (apparently blind or determinedly stubborn) “other half” among the “media experts” are STILL saying (some of them don’t even MENTION Trask today: They are still comparing just TWO GUYS on THEIR...

    NEXT ONE HAS “Extra Baggage”

    There was a TIME when it was automatic: As a Coach, you might be a “good sport” and want to give a kid who chose to leave every chance to catch on elsewhere—but it was ALSO “automatic” (ESPECIALLY in the case of a highly recruited QB): “anywhere BUT another SEC team...” But with time that has...

    Big Picture Bad News

    Gonna just keep it simple, “short and (not at ALL) sweet”: With the additional evidence coming in now week-by-week as to what “Elite Teams” look like, how though they are few, they are not only WIDELY talented, but DEEPLY so... What it portends for US is THIS: I project that it will take Mullens...

    Can Hardly Watch...

    Don’t look now, but we are on course now to have our season essentially sunk by losses in the two SEC games that replaced relative “patsies” on our “revised schedule” for 2020. The WAY we lost to A&M was bad enough, a real “face the truth (our defense SUX!)” gut punch, but how would it feel to...
