GC gets a Gator Guru in “PD”
David “PD” Parker is known by many names; one of the original GC writers, prolific poster on the GC Insider Forums and a few others nobody dare say to his face. No matter what you might call him, Gator Country called PD home and he’s coming to a column near you.
Yes, that’s right, PD is now a contributing columnist, bringing his considerable connections, knowledge and insight to Gator Country — all for your reading pleasure. PD has been writing, talking and posting about the Gators since the early 80s and there are few in the Gator Nation who do not know him.
Gator Country is tickled orange and blue to have him join our band of brothers (and one sister). In fact, we’re so happy to have him here, we wrote a limerick for those of you into that sort of thing.
Read it and you’ll get an idea of what he’ll be writing for us. And stay tuned for more announcements over the coming week!
An Ode to PD
Once upon a time
On a website that’s here to stay
There wrote an analytical humorist named PD
Though not every day.
His columns came, his columns went
To another site that, sadly, is through
Nonetheless PD is and always will be
A Gator Guru
He’ll be penning
His Picks and His Pans
There’ll be postulations galore
For our many, rabid fans
Get ready Gators Countrians
To Chomp the Numbers with PD
He’s finally come back home
To write for GC
One of the original columnists when Gator Country first premiered, David “PD” Parker has been following and writing about the Gators since the 80s. From his years of regular contributions as a member of Gator Country to his weekly columns as a partner of the popular defunct niche website Gator Gurus, PD has become known in Gator Nation for his analysis, insight and humor on all things Gators related.

Welcome Pd, you old pundit. Looking fwd to reading your prose of a positive nature.
But then again, I support your negative on occasion. Go Gator.
I’ve always found his opinions regarding the football team as spot on. When he ventures off into politics his ideology trumps even the most obvious facts, basic logic and common sense. Believing he can and will be an apolitical sports writer, we’ve got a good one here, folks.
