To be fair, the statistics like power rankings and FPI are telling an accurate story--it is just not a story that we like to hear. This team is not very good. It has not been very good since 2009. The Gators were able to mask their inefficiencies from 2009 to 2022 because the state of Florida...
Good questions. I would sum it all up as "the cost of doing business in college football". Coaches hate being fired every 4 years just because some 20-year old kids are too stupid to win football games, and fans are too impatient to wait 4 years for results, so the coaches demand 7-10 year...
This week Bama climbs up from #7 to #6, UK climbs from #8 to #7, and Florida drops from #8 to #6.
Florida's defense dropped from #6 to #13. Most of the other metrics are within a couple points from last week.
Florida’s FPI is took a large step back relative to other teams on the schedule. After the Tennessee game the Gators were projected to be favored against every team on the schedule on neutral ground the exception of UGA, LSU, and FSU. Vegas and ESPN agreed to not favor Florida over Kentucky, and...
I know we are Gator fans and are known for overreacting, but keep these facts in mind:
Back in 2021, Scott Stricklin discussed the problem with rolling through head coaches every four years. Billy Napier is not getting fired before December 2025 unless he commits a crime.
Also in December 2021...
Anthony Richardson becomes the first QB in NFL history with 4 rushing touchlowns over his first 3 games. Richardson scored 3 total touchdowns (2 pass, I rush) and converted two 2-point attempts today vs the Rams.
The Florida Gators (3-2, 1-1) return home with their tails between their legs after a molly-whopping at the hands of the Kentucky Wildcats. Their opponent will be the Vanderbilt Commodores (2-4, 0-2) who are coming off four successive losses to Missouri, Kentucky, UNLV, and Wake Forest...
The college football landscape is starting to take shape. Georgia survived a scare from Auburn. The Dawgs look beatable by any of the true contenders. Texas had a slow start but eventually pulled away. Colorado put up a much better fight than anticipated. Coach Prime is showing that he is the...
South Carolina did not look very good against Tennessee.

Future opponents Missouri and Vanderbilt battled to a 38-21 score. For reference, the stat lines between Florida and Kentucky looked somewhat similar, except Vanderbilt scored more points.

I saw this description of Napier’s coaching at home vs on the road on Twitter/X:
Take away cupcakes and Napier is 4-2.
Applying the Norvell standard, Napier absolutely must win 10 games next season or else he becomes the next Scott Frost.
This is why it is smart to lock comments on the game thread and immediately create a reaction thread. You can watch the game unfold in the game thread and look back a year from now to see if we have improved. The answer is “probably not”. Even if Florida has improved from last year, Kentucky has...
I believe these are the 6 stages of a fired UF coach. Billy is currently on stage 3 moving into 4 if he doesn’t improve stage 6 will be his fate.
1. Hope: “Things will be different this time. This stage lasted about one week into Napier’s tenure—9/3/2022.
2. Improvement: “We are getting better...
Multiple things happening at once:
- Kentucky is one of the most stable programs in the SEC. Only Nick Saban has been around longer, and Mark Stoops has continuously upgraded his core staff.
- Kentucky has always been good with one-and-done mercenary athletes in basketball. The transfer portal...
