THE INSIDER AUTHORITY ON GATOR SPORTS

National UF Signing Day HQ

As many of you invariably know by now, signing day is our busiest day of the year and it starts early at 7am and goes on until late afternoon, so it’s going to make for a very long day for many of us. Here’s how we can make our day easier for you!

We have made extraordinary preparations to handle the huge spikes in traffic that will hammer our servers all day long. We’ve done everything possible to accommodate this volume of traffic but, unfortunately, it may not be enough.  Regrettably, some on Wednesday may get an “overload” or “server not responding” message. No fear, though, we have contingencies in place. Here’s what you can do to help us:

* If you haven’t already, sign up for our Signing Day Dispatch so you can get updates as they come in via email or your cell phone. This is probably the best way to get updates without hammering our servers.

* Use our chat room to stay abreast of the latest signees as they come in.

* We’ll be posting updates on a stickied thread in our forum. Don’t reload it too often — give it time between reloads otherwise you’re going to bring the server to its knees.

* Updates will also be posted to our front page. Again, please do not constantly reload/refresh the page. We will also post updates to our alternate server location at http://www.gatorcountry.org (not live ‘til signing day) so bookmark that.

* We may or may not have our forums up, depending on server load. If they are up, do us a big favor and don’t post duplicate topics on our forums, don’t post unnecessary stuff, etc.  Especially be wary of running around like a chicken whose head is cut off screaming about the latest rumor from so and so! ;)

* Tune into Gator Country TV LIVE from 11am to 2pm for the latest updates and highlight videos of newly signed prospects.  Use our alternate LIVE TV feed if our main one is down.

* If you’re in the area, mosey on over to Gator’s Dockside from 11am-2pm in Gainesville to join GCTV as they broadcast live from there.

Biggest thing is to stay calm and enjoy the process. Things never go perfectly on signing day — whether technical or by way of expected signees, so just bear that in mind and enjoy the day. We’ll be working very hard anyway to try and keep you posted.

When the dust clears and all the LOIs are in, stay tuned for…

* Full report from Coach Meyer’s Signing Day Press Conference

* Special “Signee Spotlight” interviews with Florida Gator signees

* Exclusive interviews with the Gator Coaches for their evaluations of each position w/the new signees

* More special Post-Signing Day Briefings which promise to be explosive with things we couldn’t reveal until now…

* Read our “The Action’s Just Getting Started” debriefing on what to expect after signing day!

Due to the intense number of resources and capital needed to devote to all the above, only paid subscribers are going to be able to take advantage of all this. Now, more than ever, is a great time to join GatorCountry.com and be on the leading edge of Gator news! After all, Gator Country is… “The Insider Authority on Gator Sports!”

Thanks for your patience and here’s to good tidings!

About solari

Publisher/Owner -- Back when I was a wee one I had to decide if I wanted to live dangerously and become a computer hacker or start a website devoted to the Gators. I chose the Gators instead of the daily thrill of knowing my next meal might be at Leavenworth. No regrets, however. The Gators have been and will continue to be my addiction. What makes this so much fun is that the more addicted I become to the Florida Gators, the more fun I have doing innovative things to help bring all the Gator news that is news (and some that isn’t) to Gator fans around the world. Andy Warhol said we all have our 15 minutes of fame. Thanks to Gator Country, I’m working on a half hour. Thanks to an understanding daughter that can’t decide if she’s going to be the female version of Einstein, Miss Universe, President of the United States or a princess, I get to spend my days doing what I’ve done since Gus Garcia and I founded Gator Country back in 1996. Has it really been over a decade and a half now?
