Trask did sit for years waiting his chance and has done an excellent job given the opportunity. He also showed he wasn't pouting about his role and continued to learn what the coaches were teaching. Emory seems to have that too. He has flashed a lot of talent and does have the tools to suit Coach Mullens game. I don't think his lack of reps last year had anything to do with talent. It was more that he was still learning the fine details of the game. Expect to see more of him this year assuming the OL has grown up and is ready to let us run a balanced offense. We had the skill tools last year not less a OL. There will be a competition and Jones could win but Trask has a year of operating under his belt. Barring injury we have the QB's to take us the distance.
Best of luck Fromm. While some gators here may disagree wanted to meet you in Jacksonville to not let you sweep your time. Regardless go represent SEC in the NFL.
ugadawg78 Saban did leave for the NFL and failed there after leaving with a NC at LSU. He isn't leaving again for the NFL. Left for Alabama
Here no he
CO don't see many others trolling he besides UGA. But since 1980 which team has more NTs? Which team has had better recruiting classes? Preseason rankings? Alabama just passed us on conference championships since the division split. SEC game UF 12 times won 7, UGA 8 times won 3. Now is rather not be preseason ranked higher or have better recruiting standings and put wins on the board.

Arrow to true. He had his warts too but he is part of the 2019 team. Think the team needs to acknowledge that as well. No one will ever know where we would be if things were different. Go take the Gator standard with you young man.
Thank you Trevon Grimes. Get that degree. Get that Championship. Go Gators!
Gary and Rob you are right on and here are the two biggest UGA fans join the fray.
The Gators are on the road in the right direction. Meyer had a drop on year three. If CD and Co don't have that drop I will call us back. Glad to be in the direction we are going now. But wait for it there is doom and gloom to be posted here soon.
No one more than this fan likes seeing UF beat the VOLs . A good shot once in awhile is being a fan. What you're doing is trolling, you need to go joint tdow and corch and a few others in the basement on your moms couch. UT dumpster fire was bigger than ours and appears to be getting their s to better m together. For the east to be a powerhouse again we need strong competition. Adding to a better schedule we'll be poised to be top five team. Beating UT will be part of that.
Where's the UGA corch and dow? LSU by 20? Hmm? FL lost 14 to them at LSU. Choked again. Don't start with injuries. We were without two of our best and lost by less. See you next year in the swamp. Merry Christmas. Don't lose the sugar bowl and look bad again.
Leghumper there are those that say they don't want to risk injury. I get it, but doesn't show much regard for team. Good stuff from you. I'm wondering where corch and dow are.
One of the perceived weaknesses in AL and LSU this year was/is defense. Almost appeared and commented on by the networks they looked almost Big12 like. I think it showed especially in AL at Auburn. While flashy offenses are fun to watch a smothering defense has a lot to do with controlling a game. LSU has a bit better defense that AL but it showed they are not the LSU defenses of the past. Could be a changing of style in the overall scene of football. This year the Gators had issues with stopping the run and adding this young man will go a long way to boosting the run defense while still getting after the QB. 2nd to last paragraph really is significant to the strength of the SEC. 6th in conference and 9th overall. That means 6 SEC teams are top ten in the nation. Looks like the troll haven't got out of bed yet.
This is a old thread but I had some time and read some on the UGA side and the LSU side and noticed something about the comments. There are Gator and LSU posters putting up quality comments there without the BS that the two listed as UGA fans post here. Actually one moron that posts here had a educated comment on the UGA site. What off meds when posting here?
Good luck young man. Thank you and all the best.
Well said Percy. For the love of the game.
Other than stats don't always matter in this rivalry. We are the better team but FSU is always a dangerous team. But this Gator team has played as a team. CDM told them never let go of the rope. They are playing for each other and it shows.
CO that is the funniest post today. If FSU misses on the hire they might move to DII
The trend in scheduling better opponents only has one downside in the number of home games for season ticket holders. On the up side we won't have to watch throw away games. I also think this will make the teams prep for the season a little different as the cupcake warm up games go away. This will be good long term for the Gators.
Yes we did but I'd like to see the east the dominant division year over year. Would be good to see NC go through the east. Of course even better with the Gators on top.
Lev while beating UGA or should I say beating each other up is fun for the year the west has owned the SEC for some time. Would be nice to see the east take over with even UT and So. Car. being good teams. Would be great if the road to the NC went through the SEC East year in and year out even better if the Gators are on top. Even have UK, Vandy and Mizzou once in awhile.
Neil, while we were out gunned last weekend and UGA has out recruited us for some time. The * rating being more of a subjective potential rating with more 5* more potential for success. To a degree this is true but it can also make a coach look better than they are. But if they can't win NC then what is happening with all that blue chip talent? 2-5 difference makers regardless of rankings with solid depth on both sides of the ball. Having an abundance of blue chip players increases the odds of success as a number will be duds or succumb to injury. Coaching can still rule the day a Clemson did. I agree about players not working at some positions. But here I think it was lack of depth that forced some to play positions that aren't a good fit.
I think the pick 'em is the right call. This game could go either way. Closest matchup in some time. But the way it will go is Orange and Blue victorious!
Talkin is fine but walkin the walk is what they need to do. GO GATORS!!
There is no denying Urban Meyer's coaching ability. NC's at two different schools. His ethics are a different story. He left us in disarray but part of that was the hires we made following. We are on the way up now and have a coach I hope will be here for some time.
This guy isn't even liked on the UGA site. Not only that doesn't post there. Which by definition is her to spark a reply. The UGA fans on there site are good fans for the wrong team. They don't want this loser either.
Neil great story. I am going with my family this weekend. I hope we come home with that feeling of being on cloud nine. Go Gators!
This would be a great idea if it doesn't count against a official on campus for the recruit. Seeing the game in Jax would be a huge thing for prospects. I think the wording is correct in that it be for neutral site conference games. Since this game has been played over 9 decades it would be nice to get to use this as a home host event. Added layer of stuff for the staff but that's football. One year you sit in the stands if you are visiting the away team the other you are on the sideline and with the team. Or however this is done.
@blitzer That was a interesting choice of words but if the shirts come off...Maybe they meant checkers or IDK chess?
The format the SEC uses has been the best of college football. Among other things part of what put them at the top. Adding power 5 teams to the schedule from outside the conference is a better metric for determining the strength of a team and conference. The AD from the Big 10 saying they play 10 power 5 schools is true but half of those are still cupcakes (usually). The SEC has bottom dwellers too. But not as consistently as others. BIG10 has three current big dogs, BIG 12 has 1 with a few wanna b's. ACC has 1 and the PAC12 1. SEC has 5 solid. The SEC teams want to add OOC P5 schools since the eye test people see of playing DII doesn't look good anymore. The conference is modernizing the model.
