Hooah!! Go Army, Beat Navy!!
I wonder what his buyout to UCF is when he leaves...
Tiger - Couldn't agree more!! 7 games that mean something vs 3 seems like a no-brainer, even to an old construction dude like me!! You could rotate the games through enough bowls to make EVERYONE a winner. I can't for the life of me understand how the powers that be can't see this...
I would bet that Bama is closer to the "beginning of the end" than UGA is. Saban is no spring chicken and sustaining a program is a lot harder than building one. Saban has proven exceptional at both, but nothing lasts forever...
So...UF is tied for #8 with GA Tech in US News rankings, Tosu is ranked #17. Tous has an on campus enrolment of 59k, UF has an on campus enrolment of 55k. UF campus is around 2,000 acres, Tous campus is around 1,600 acres. I think Urban better get his head looked at, and FAST!!
UF fans, generally, do appreciate the success he had. What we despise is the manner in which he accomplished it. Admittedly, there was writing on the wall as to the toxic culture that he created in G'ville with the number of arrests from the Florida roster. Much of that wasn't fully realized until he was actually gone. Credit WM for cleaning a lot of the off the field stuff up, but he could never overcome the lack of talent that UM left. Once the 08 & 09 rosters were spent, Urban was out of tricks. It has taken 3 coaches and 8 years and we are only now starting to recover. Thankfully, I believe that CDM is the "good" version of Urban. Go Gators!!
Um, doesn't the Mad Hatter have a natty at LSU? (2007)
Urban may have just saved Harbaugh's job...
someone could always receive some "death threats"...
In all kinds of weather, we all stick together!! I was there Saturday, and I will be there again this week. If I can live through Zook, Chump and Mac, I can get through this... Dan is right though, when SOS and Urban were winning championships the Swamp was always rocking and is a HUGE home field advantage!!
Personally, I say give him 4 or 5 years...
The final four games for Missouri this season: at Florida, Vanderbilt, at Tennessee, Arkansas. “That’s 8-4 right there, and then everything doesn’t look so bad,” one SEC coach said. “How many of us wouldn’t love to be staring at that in November?” Really? How many wouldn't love to be staring at that in November? So this was either Chump, Mason, Pruitt, Odom, or Morris. Everyone else has 5+ wins. Guess that tells you all you need to know...SMH
The biggest question in the SEC will be is a one loss UGA ranked ahead of a 2 loss LSU? At #3/4 UGA's loss to LSU doesn't look so bad, and that will likely be their only loss in the regular season. LSU's loss to UF isn't horrible, but it isn't great either. So, the question is how that second LSU loss to UA will be factored in. It really looks like Bama goes into the CFP undefeated, UGA & LSU both with 2 losses (UGA will pick up #2 in the SECCG) get left out in the cold with respect to the play off.
Would have helped a lot if our secondary had been full (or even 1/2) strength. You just can't beat a team like UGA and Fromm with 2nd & 3rd string. That 6 play goal line stand was pretty special though!!
Good win for your guys. But I would hope that you could capitalize against UF's 2nd & 3rd string secondary. Hard to bring that 3rd down pressure when there is not much back side help. We needed next man up and it just wasn't there. And as for the White call...soon QB's will be wearing flags. Sad...
First and foremost let me say Congrats to UGA on a hard fought win. That is tough to say. Our guys shot themselves in the face throughout the first half, even though we had the upper hand. Loosing CJ Henderson was huge when we were already without Marco Wilson, Brad Stewart & Brian Edwards. Essentially Fromm was going against a 2nd & 3rd string UF secondary and it showed. At least we put up a good fight in this one, and the future finally looks bright!! Looking forward to a good push to end the season 9-3 or 10-2 and a decent bowl, and then building on momentum next year. Go Gators!!
That's true. LSU with 8 games, UF with 7 LSU Opponents attempts: 271 - Comp 137 50.5% UF Opponents attempts: 194 - Comp 97 50% INT: LSU 14 UF 7 LSU Yards allowed: 1,598 for 199/g - UF 1,121 for 173/game LSU Opponent Pass TD: 7 UF 5 All things considered its a pretty close call. UF & LSU are ranked 6 & 7 in Passing D (UGA is 14) I would say because of yards & TD allowed UF has the edge. The one stat I couldn't account for is how many points LSU's 7 extra Int have generated...
That's one more than UGA. UGA has played 1 good team and got run out of the stadium!!
Note, he didn't say UF has passed ALL their tests, just that they have passed more than UGA.
"They’ve passed more tests than Georgia. Georgia has had one test and failed it.” Reading comprehension is obviously not your thing...
UF 2 picks VS LSU, one for a TD LSU 1 pic against UF Asked and answered.
As to point #1, the rushing yards allowed stat is a bit skewed. Most of those big yardage games came early when LB D.Reese & DE CC Jefferson were out. Since there return (and against the likes of Miss St & LSU) UF is giving up closer to 120 - 125 a game. As to point #2, Jake Fromm has been HORRIBLE in pressure situations and on 3rd downs where he needs to make a play UF will be bringing all kinds of heat from every direction. Look from JF to throw at least one pick in this game. As to point #3, Given. Agree. As to point #4, That one cuts both ways. UF's Special teams have been outstanding and I look not so much for UF to do damage in the return game, but I could definitely see a blocked FG or punt. As to point #5, That is just a lazy, I can't come up with a legit fifth point to make as to why UGA wins. The world is on UGA's shoulders in this one. They were supposed to be the top of the east this year and contend for the play-off. UF was supposed to suck and be a re-build. UGA will be playing uptight trying to respond to the LSU loss and stay in the hunt for all its big preseason goals (which were legit). UF will be playing loose, fun, aggressive spoiler ball. Should be a good one. Go Gators!!
ucf - the new Boise State
That has got to be the lamest response I have ever seen on SDS. I'm sure you make the knight nation proud. Or should I say knight village, you're just a bunch of FBS wannabes.
"Jacksonville is in the same state as FL"...you must NOT be a ucf alum!!
I like that the world is on UGA's shoulders for this game. Win and they continue the journey. Loose and it comes down to UF-UK. Florida will be playing loose as the underdogs that no-one gave any chance of winning and this is a team that will be chomping at the bit (chomping - see what I did there) to avenge a BAD loss from last year. Go Gators!!
Obviously the tool that is organizing this has never been to the Cocktail Party. A bus load of 40 or 50 people (or 10 bus loads of 40-50 people) won't make a dent in the UF-UGA crowd. There will literally be 100k+ in Jax this weekend and finding ucf fans will be like picking fly s*#t out of pepper. Good luck with that tantrum little sister. oh, and Go Gators!!
Kirby Smart sounds like most UGA fans. Intelligent, educated and past the 8th grade. He sounds like someone who actually follows and understands college football, not someone who just stays in their bubble wearing red & black glasses. You sound like a 13yo Ohio State Fan from the Tresel era, totally ignorant of the world around you and the ultimate homer. Enjoy your fantasy world, the rest of us will enjoy a great game on Saturday.
LOL, dog fans are funny. Especially you.
