I was there. I sit in the north end zone. It was good. We were all stunned when the ref waived it off...
Please tell me this comment is a troll piece. Sarcasm does not translate well in the written word sometimes...
Why on God's green Earth would you want Chump to "be in good shape?"
The first pic should have been a TD. If Grimes doesn't tip that ball, FF hits Cleveland streaking in stride with nothing but 70 wide open yard between him and the end zone. Watch it again...
The pass over the middle that got picked wasn't an overthrow. If anything it was an underthrow. If Swain doesn't tip that ball FF would have hit Tyrie Cleveland in stride for what would have been a TD. Watch it again, TC is WIDE OPEN and no one between him and the end zone and very few people can run him down...
Thank you for this!! lots of LOL's on this one :-)
Its hard to take this article seriously. It reads at about a 3rd grade level and was obviously not edited. UF's inexperience on the O-line showed last night. We struggled badly in the run game getting no push and not opening any running lanes. That made the offense one dimensional and put the game on FF shoulders. Was he flawless? No. Was it pretty? No. But at the end of the night FF delivered and UF got the win. I'll take an opening night win over a P-5 team any day!! Throwing in the towel on UF at this point is pretty much premature. UF is 1-0 and I'll take it!!
Says that the SEC is full of defensive minds and makes a list...that EXCLUDES Nick Saban, probably the greatest defensive mind of them all!!
UF's defensive backs have more Pick 6's than UM's QB has CAREER PASS ATTEMPTS!! This will not end well for the u... Go Gators!!
Do you really believe that, or are you just looking through your red and black glasses...? This one is going to be ugly, and it wont be UF on the short end. Some of UF's DBs have more pick 6s than UM's QB has attempts!!
UF had taken the UK game for granted the past few years. UK FINALLY got the win last year and should have won easily in 17 and probably so in 16. UF will be out for revenge after being embarrassed at home last year. Don't see it happening...
Yes We have struggled to put bodies in the seats since about year 3 of the Muskrat era. When chump had our first loosing season in 30+ years and lost to Ga Southern (who didn't throw a single pass in that game) it was the beginning of our dark age. McElwain started to get things turned around in years 1 & 2, but it all disintegrated in year 3. We never have problems selling out the "Big" games, but on the ho-hum home Saturdays, attendance has not been great. It has been tough to watch UF put up 10-17 points a game, even when we win. We are capable of so much better. That said - I am optimistic that CDM has brought back a product that is fun to watch and that he will win far more than he looses in G'ville. The Ol Miss game in '16 and the LSU game last year are reminders of what the Swamp can be and what all Gator fans hope it will be again soon!! Go Gators!!
Glad to see I am not the only one that thinks the new SDS layout SUCKS!!
If both UF and LSU roll into Baton Rouge undefeated and the game gets the night slot, Death Valley will be off the chain!! Should be a great game!!
Lets see how Fromm does without that all star receiving corps this year...
This list is comical. Lets just hope you have the stones to revisit it periodically throughout the season...
I think this year we see the true "wild card" of the CDM offense. FF on the run. Don't get me wrong, the passing game should be much better (assuming Hevesy can put together a serviceable line) But our WR corps is loaded and our RB group is above average as well. If you account for all of those play makers you end up with the opportunity for a "willing runner" to take off. That is one of the things FF became more comfortable with and even began to embrace. And with Emery Jones now becoming a viable back-up, there is less worry about running FF and getting him hurt. This year should be another fun year in the Ville. Go Gators!!
It's really hard to tell if you post this outlandish stuff to try to get reactions from other fan bases, or if you are just really that ignorant. Probably a lot of both!! No other team has done so little with so much as uga. Kirby is Mark Richt version 2.0 CDM is doing more with 3 & 4 stars than Smart has done with all of his 5 stars. To hear you talk, you would think that uga was back to back national champions when in fact you really haven't won anything. Ohh wait, that SEC championship in '17 by the skin of your teeth. My bad. Florida was in the football wilderness for 8 years, we acknowledge that. Those days are over. You call CDM "Sideshow Dan", but you do it with a nervous laugh. You know he gets far more out of his players than smart does, and you know that the recruiting gap really is closing. You hang your hat on one bad apple from the '19 class and one homesick kid. Oh, that and some decommitts from kids that are finishing up their sophomore year in HS. A very short handed UF team was within 6 with 8 1/2 minutes to go. I look forward to this years WLOCP. We may not win it, but it is FAR from a sure thing for uga… I know it's been a VERY long time since dog fans have had anything to be happy about. Enjoy it, you're on borrowed time...
A few thoughts... 1. The Jalon Jones & Brian Edwards situations were bad. No 2 ways about it. Both were handled correctly in dismissing them both. Mullen & staff need to sit the team down and hammer accountability and how to act into these guys. 2. The Chris Steele situation is a bit murkier to me. No one seems to be able to say who Chris made the request to or in what context. Did he go to a football staffer (who has no hand or authority in housing issues) and just say he wanted to be reassigned because he "doesn't like his roommate"? And by this I mean did he try not to throw a team mate under the bus by saying he was assaulting people? I doubt that any coach would accept that and kiss a new freshman's hind end. If that's how it was presented, then the "wait until summer" response was quite appropriate. Housing is a scarce commodity at UF and it's likely there wasn't just an open room to put one of them in. IF...and it's a big if, Steele came to Mullen and said JJ is assaulting women and doing bad things, why was that not addressed immediately and JJ pulled aside and put on notice? In that case Steel's concerns should absolutely have been taken seriously and addressed. We will probably never know the whole story. As far as the long term consequences...probably way overblown. Our society has the attention span of a fly. People can't remember what they had for lunch yesterday. By the time the season rolls around and signing day gets here this will be ancient history. And Mullen and staff will be able to say look, there were bad actors on the team and we dismissed them. Could it have been handled better? Probably. Is it the end of the world? Far from it...
“This contract was all about a mutual commitment to each other — Clemson and myself. And so, I didn’t have any issues with it at all..." No wonder Dabo didn't have any issues with it, that is chump change for Alabama!! That's basically a green light to go if he got the offer and wanted to go. Not sure that will ever happen, but this won't be the reason if he doesn't!
That looks awesome!! I hope SDS does a follow-up on this project once it's all done. That locker room is going to be sweet once it's all put together. As a construction dude, this warms my heart!! This is what all that SEC $$ is all about and why the rest of the country is going to be hard pressed to keep up!!
Franks has one of the biggest arms in college football. If Johnson & Mullen can work on his reads/progressions/decision making he will improve on a solid 2018. He gets knocked for his accuracy, but he really has come a long way with that (and that has been his focus through spring & this summer). Mullen likes dual threat guys, but has said he can work with a "willing" runner and FF has proven to be that. The dude is huge, is a load to bring down and is deceptively quick. Also agree with the Tua - Fromm comments. Should be a fun year, even watching Hurts from afar over in OK. Go Gators!!
Keep believing that the 2019 FF will be the same as the 2017 FF. The kid got thrown to the wolves as a freshman and was coached by two bumbling idiots in Mac & Nuss. FF is now in year two of Mullens system and has been coached up by 2 of the best QB coaches in the college game (Mullen & Brian Johnson). FF will open some eyes this year. He has all the physical tools, is starting master this offense & has a TON of skill players around to support him. On second thought...I hope every DC in the SEC thinks like you do this year. It will work out great for all of us!! Go Gators!!
His path at UGA is probably a little easier, but not by much. Fromm will be gone after next year and after Fromm, UGA's QB room isn't the strongest. But that Mathis kid looks like a beast & will be hard to beat and he is an incoming freshman. I guess that beats sitting behind FF and the Jones at UF. I guarantee that he is making the wrong choice for his development, It doesn't get better than Mullen & Johnson. Best of luck to him though...
I will take Mullen over Riley, Kelly, Leach, Patterson & Shaw any day of the week. From a coaching standpoint I would take Mullen over Smart as well, though early on Smart has been the better recruiter.
He will be a great steal for someone if he falls into the 2nd or 3rd round.
