    2024 Orange and Blue Game

    ...AND, I might add, that "8-4" prediction from SS I personally would find, under the circumstances (ie. against this schedule), quite acceptable, even encouraging--as I think would most fans at this point. However, this also speaks to the "danger", that of "fan impatience" and...

    2024 Orange and Blue Game

    Tre was great at WR--but we clearly must establish another WR (and hopefully a TE as well) if we hope to prevent defenses from simply keying on Wilson to shut down our deep threat. Baugh perhaps? Who else? Our #1 kicker (Smack) seems set, but ya gotta feel for the young FAU transfer (Smith)...He...

    2024 Orange and Blue Game

    (Made several "subtle but crucial changes" above: I would now submit it as much a "State of the Program, Spring 2024" as simply a "comment on the Spring Game".)

    2024 Orange and Blue Game

    Good turn out. Lots of "encouraging signs" here and there throughout the day, but above all I guess we have to hope that a "vastly improved defense" is the main "one clear thing" we can take overall from the proceedings. After that, well, aside from general "further ongoing development", the...

    ...and this thread CONTINUES to be the seeming "right place" to bring all the odd, "out-of-left-fieid" questions and topics that come up as spring gathers steam: As we work through the he seeming "annual bummer" of another early exit from the dance (this year it's a #7-seed Fla losing to...

    Depth and Injuries at Linebacker 2024

    It at least SEEMS we have some depth at LB heading into 2024...but those surgeries raise Question Marks as to whether and/or WHEN these (all mainly among our most promising) will be back now. Any word from "behind the scenes" that you're aware of, E--? These are likely to be the gathering...

    I'm glad you raised all this, Lf--and the ONLY reason I didn't give it a "Like" is so that there is no confusion in separating my approval of our addressing all this here, now that it's been raised, while DISAPPROVING of DeSantis' mouthy meddling WAY beyond whatever the citizens of The Sunshine...

    LOL. GOOD one E-! I dunno...I mean, of COURSE I'm sweating this one out already, with no real feel for WHERE "Napier has the program" right at this moment. But know what? Even with that being the case. I do still now have this strangely upbeat vibe, the unexpected, out-of-left-field feeling that...

    Just a note...I wasn't sure where to post it here. Was tempted to simply open a whole new thread, but it sort of fits HERE too--so I will tentatively leave it here to start: Upon my first look at next season's schedule, it was immediately apparent that our outlook for the whole YEAR will likely...

    ...and now come Saban's recent comments, his supposed rationale for suddenly walking away. Amazing ti find myself saying it, but those comments do NOT sound a whole lot different from my last post HERE (directly above)--His are only, if anything, more detailed and specific.

    Florida Gators hire Cleveland Browns OL coach Jonathan Decoster as OL coach

    Time to just line up and back our boys. Keep the background static to a minimum if possible (I don't care HOW "venerated" a figure of Gator lore you are!) and simply let them all, players AND Coaches, entrenched or newcomer, DO THEIR JOBS and GROW TOGETHER. All ANY of us really are focusing on...

    Florida Gators Men's Basketball 2023-2024

    Last second let down. Close--but no cigar. They might get to the Sweet 16, but then they'll likely fade, as usual. Baseball will likely, eventually go a bit better... But the penultimate "bottomline" will almost certainly once again be, "Nice little run, boyz...Now: Let's turn to Spring Camp...

    I agree completely--in fact, to some extent I am already "THERE": I am here (and continue to hang in, THROUGH IT ALL) because I believe this site provides voice and forum to thise who remain "Gators through and through, no matter the weather..." But SPURRIER'S latest public assertions really...

    Piling On

    A whole lot of folks circling a seemingly struggling Billy Napier in what are apparently blood-filled waters of late... Though I have been feeling some of those vibes myself, I tended to be dismissive, even somewhat disgusted by Trevor Etienne's desertion--and even more his recent wholly...

    Florida Gators Coaching Staff Changes from 2023 to 2024

    So now we FINALLY begin to see our actual "hand being dealt". All we can do from here for the most part is to sit back and watch what unfolds the first month or so of ongoing machinations and their practical consequences as the season begins and we witness actual game results. Oh, there'll be...

    "BOTTOMLINE II": Current state of college football

    Oh, come ON! I am not now, not do I have a pattern of "bashing Billy Napier at every opportunity". I'm not even BLAMING him here. If I am "blaming" anyone or anything, it is a modern world and system where one's word and/or commitment means so little now. This one hit us hard--especialy it's...

    "BOTTOMLINE II": Current state of college football

    How can it NOT be at least PARTLY "about Billy Napier, Gator football, or a contract"??? I know what you're saying here, E--, I FOLLOW your reasoning and it's "distancing from blame and/or emotionalism"--but it is SOMEHOW connected, and it IS going to affect us in its timing as far as ehat's...

    "BOTTOMLINE II": Current state of college football

    Still: It is somewhat similar to what is becoming all too common place among PLAYERS--And ALL emblematic of how little one's word, honor or the value of a personal commitment MEANS nowadays. The timing here absolutely SUCKS for Napier and the program. Along with the offensive questions, the...

    "BOTTOMLINE II": Current state of college football

    @Escambia94, Not sure if this is really the appropriate place for this, but it's the main thing on my mind and does fit (in an ironic, "bigger picture" sort of way): What do you make of this sudden "boomerang move" of our new Strength and Conditioning Coach almost immediately away and over to...
