    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.

    @AndrewSpiveyGC: Adonis Thomas posted on Twitter that he has decommited from #Florida

    Unreal, our 2 best commits decommitted within a week. Our class is quickly going down the tubes.

    Yeah, this on top of everything is a reason why Muschamp is going to have to go. It's so much worse in the Twitter age than it was before, because the rumor swirling wasn't so public. Now, kids really don't have much of a choice but to play the safer route.

    Good luck to AT. He's a good player, and if we land a nice HC I'd wonder if he would reconsider.

    LOL what a joke. The state of Florida is so loaded this year and in-state rivals and out of state schools are just having a field day at our expense. We no longer need a home run hire but a grand slam and restore some semblance of a recruiting class.

    Yeah, that doesn't surprise me. He did the right thing, here. Everyone knew he was on edge so it would have been disingenuous for him to hang on.

    We don't have a coach, it's completely irrelevant who is committed now.

    We are now ranked in the 60's. I don't see how we are even going to finish in the top 25 this year. This is truly depressing.

    Yeap, Foley made a huge mistake keeping Muschamp last year. We should be cleaning up right now.

    I'm with ya, although I am getting this fuzzy feeling about Treon starting against the dawgs. Not certain yet but It might just be indigestion.

    I think our only hope is that CeCe and Byron still wana play together, and love Florida no mater who the coach is, which I've heard is still pretty likely. We also need to hope that Ryan Davis doesn't have much of an option at F$U, and wants to play in the Swamp. We could still salvage this class and possibly break 25, but the fact that there's even a chance we won't break 25 says it all. We really shouldn't even be having this conversation.
