    I gotta admit this is the most positive thing I've seen you post. :) keep it up it fits you well.

    As for why some call others haters, my guess is when people chalk up ALL of our success to luck and ALL of our failures to coaching it seems a bit biased and therefor "hating" takes shape whether warranted or not. There's no sugar coating it we had a horrible year last year just as we had a stellar year in '12 the issue is NO credit is usually given for '12 and our issues in '13 are usually magnified with little regard for context of what took place in '13 to cause our failures. It's just all chalked up to "the coach sucks" ( not saying any of this is you)

    The coach has to take the majority of the blame it comes with the territory, and champ will be the first to tell you that, but the coach usually also gets a good deal of the credit for good seasons but in our case the credit goes to "luck" Unfairly of course.

    I imagine when we start winning this year as you stated, it will mend all wounds and people will have a brighter outlook on our program, well except maybe wingtee:D

    Glad for the vote of confidence or support :). I still dislike the term "haters" yes its true some are consistent in their post and it may be negative but imo it's just how they really feel. Doesn't mean it's right or wrong, they express what they feel. It may seem to some who don't share that view as excessive when it's possible that's how they see things.

    Perhaps I'm just very sensitive politically as I see this nation divided like never before. I do think the vast majority of posters are diehard gator fans who are as passionate about uf sports like no other. What unifies us all is wanting uf to succeed. I sure do and I hope WM's the guy. We will see. And by the way I sooooo pay my fair share! ;)

    This is a really exciting pickup. Don't remember getting someone with his range and athleticism in years. He'll be in the high 230s before he gets to campus and still running under 4.6. Love his decision making, choosing UF over Bama because of academics. That really is a good choice.

    I'm too psyched about this to worry about who else we get.

    Extremely stoked about Adonis, great pickup here! And for all of the bad luck we've had recruiting in state, we have done extremely well out of state.
