DaGherk: at first I was going to be really impressed that you knew enough football to know that a team could possibly score 1 point. Sadly, it was just a really bad attempt to troll another team. Why does UF bother Georgia fans so badly?
As a gator who lives in Georgia, it is sweet that you believe the UF-UGA rivalry is the same from both sides. Is GT-UGA viewer the same from both sides? No...GT fans talk trash about UGA. Meanwhile, dawgs really like to beat yellow jackets, but do not obsess over it all year. UF-UGa is largely the same. Florida fans do not think about Georgia all year. It seems that Georgia fans spend a great deal of time and effort thinking about Florida. As evidence, I offer the number of dawgs commenting on ALL of the UF articles.
UF opens the season with Miami. We close with FSU. Still plan on being 1-0 though.
The only thing about this discussion I find frustrating is that no credit is given to teams who do this as an annual rivalry get no credit for it. Just because Clemson and South Carolina are in the same state, does not diminish that they play a non-conference H&H EVERY YEAR. Florida-Florida State is the same. But everyone views this games the same way as Michigan-Michigan State or Auburn-Alabama. But there is a difference, these games are in-conference games!
As a gator who resides in Georgia, I can attest that UGA’s obsession with Florida did not begin with Mullen. In GA, Georgia Tech is obsessed with UGA as a rivalry while the Dawgs are so used to beating GT that the concern is not reciprocated. The UF-UGA rivalry is very much like this. Most Florida see this as another fun rivalry (FSU, LSU). However there is a deep vitriol from UGA towards UF.
I like what you did there: recent, relevant, and witty. However, like I would tell Mullen, be careful with your comments because you never know. After all, as a dawg, there is just no response to 14,011.
I do appreciate that you did not include the victory UGA claims in 1904. You know, before Florida had a football team! Although I wouldn’t say that an 8 game lead after almost 100 football games is “owning.” Although, if you look at the history of the series, it has alternated between periods of one team’s dominance and then the other. In general, from 1915-1990, UGA was the superior team with a few short Florida winning streaks. Since 1990 the opposite has been true. UGA has been able to put a couple 2-4 year streaks together, but it really has been all UF. (Interestingly, the NC conversation mirrors this: all UGA early and all UF recently). It’ll be fun to see how it unfolds from here.
*Insurance only covers what is left AFTER... The problem of typing on a phone...
The issue with this is that the insurance card not covers what is left AFTER momma has her house and car. One million in insurance money is not the same as one million and a house/car. Perhaps Saban is right. The only problem is that what is he advocating directly serves his interests. So we will never know if he truly has the players’ best interest in mind or if he just wants these good to great players for another year. Who am I to tell Saban anything, but it may be wise to let a third party to advocate for this idea.
I believe we have to hold off on making a proclamation of what the narrative will be going forward. If the investigation finds that Wade is guilty of offering money, but not to any of his current players, then brag away. However, if it is discovered that any of the current players have taken any money, then the entire season will be wiped out of the record books. In that case, they shouldn’t mention it ever again.
I never had a problem with him. I did not expect him to compete with UK and UT this year. His first couple of years it was difficult to recruit until people were convinced he could do more than win with Donovan's players. That is hurting us now with few experienced players on the court. But the strong finish in the SEC and NCAA tournament was great. I thought the round of 32 was about right for the team this year. Great players coming in, so a few guys who played ancillary roles are leaving. I think White is still the guy and things are going in the proper direction! Go Gators!
Liberty University is the largest one in the country based on enrollment.
Are you talking about UCF...or Alabama? Because the history books show that Bama has done the same thing UCF did once or twice.
Connor: You solves the problem of the wedding by moving it to a Sunday. However, you create a lifetime of issues. There is going to come a year (many, in fact) that your anniversary falls on, not just opening weekend, but opening day. Now, instead of enjoying a cruise to the Caribbean or a long weekend in a secluded mountain cabin, you have to choose between celebrating your anniversary early (before the season) or taking time from your trip to devote to football. No thanks. I’ll take my June anniversary, enjoy time with my wife, and be ready for football when it arrives!
I understand that you included Florida. But if you move this window back a week, the gators have Auburn, at LSU, and at South Carolina. Being in consecutive weeks (despite the home game) makes this a tougher stretch than including He bye before Georgia.
I believe this is not a big deal. And I believe that both of these programs have proud fans that are uncomfortable with the current state of affairs but are hopeful for the future. Nevertheless, it sounds stupid to attempt to peaks fun of a team for losing and ending a streak your team has never had and/or for losing to a team your team lost to last year (and twice this decade).
I hope Coach Mac does truly let his offensive coaches have control. That was his mistake at Florida. He wanted to control the offense from a defensive perspective...it just doesn’t work. I believe he is a great defensive coach and a great person. I hope he beats every team he plays but UF.
Losing the best linebacker in the nation is always a step down. He simply made too many amazing plays for his absence to not be felt. The defining question is what UGA without 2 NFL caliber backs ready to go RIGHT NOW. I admit that Swift will be (NFL material) and there are several talented freshmen, but none of them are NFL ready right this minute. Chubb and Michel could easily have been rookies last year. Their departure means defenses can focus on Swift and Fromm. It will be fun to see how the offense responds.
I think the author has it backwards. The reason so many of these games did not matter is BECAUSE we have a four team playoff. Increasing that number to 8 will only increase the number of games that are marginalized. If you truly want every game to matter, then we need to: a) return to a BCS type format with only two teams, or b) have a playoff of only conference champions.
I agree the Spurrier and Mullen years were dark the the Dawgs. But let’s be real, of Florif Da’s last 5 coaches (Spurrier, Zook, Meyer, Muschamp and McElwain) Georgia only has a winning record against one of them.
As a Florida alum living in Georgia, this rivalry is always fun. Although it isn’t as jovial as Mullen seems to believe. There is much vitriol from Georgia fans directed at the Gators. Oh, and the record would 50-43-2 in Georgia’s Favor.
Saban’s comment, “**** through a tin horn” was before the Charleston Southern game in 2015. However, Saban was referring to the 2011 game against Georgia Southern.
Do you realize this would kill every meaningful rivalry in Florida? FSU-Miami only happens every 8 years. UF-FSU is only permitted every fourth year. For the sake of making it easier for the playoff committee, you take from college football the very things that make it great? No thanks.
