    SERIOUSLY? So your saying seniors are better than freshman and sophomores ? Just stop messing w/ me, next thing you will be saying crazy stuff like upper class men are usually more physicaly and mentally developed than freshman.
    Just one question where are those meyer lineman recruits that are so great? Thats what im looking for.

    Muschamp should have 2nd and 3rd year players that were his guys that should be making more of an impact. Other than Fowler and I guess VHIII all the other marquee players have been Meyer. I mean it took him 3 years to get a decent RB(Taylor), and the jury is still out on the WRs,TEs, and QB. Just saying the fact that so few of the guys that he has recruited have turned into top players 3 years in is kind of alarming.

    Yep. Meyer isn't around to recruit and develop his players for him anymore.

    People here argued with me last year when I said that they were not elite and I wanted no part of Alabama in the SEC CG.

    Most thought the team should play in the BCS CG. I never did.

    They were an overachieving 11-2, that in most years would have had two more losses.

    My feelings are that the only way for us to get back to championship level is for a new head coach to step in. It's gonna happen, it's just a matter of time, and the sooner the better. I also feel it would be a bad PR move if it was done this year after that magical 11-2 season. (11-1 to some of you). The only way to avoid the PR nightmare is for the season to derail even farther. We're out of contention for anything worthwhile as it is, so I don't see the problem with hoping that we lose to Vandy and SC and allow a chance to make the change this year and avoid the bad PR. In the end it would be better for our program, just like the 04 loss to Miss State.

    But it's never OK to root for FSU over us.

    I'm embarrassed you and I share an alma mater. I have the same number of degrees from UF that you do and yet I'm not up my own ass about it. It's not like you went to Stanford. Get over yourself.

    Tilly, you are right. Always a Gator, but this is one of those years where all you can do is wait for a text, email, phone call, media headline, etc. to remind you that we are bottom feeders that are wounded. A once proud program is now driving off a cliff. My Dad who love the Gators, took me to games in the early sixties, even listened on radios when there was no tv coverage. He never got to see SOS lead us to a Nat'l Championship. He saw Steve play though. It mattered if we won or lost but he still went to New Orleans/Baton Rouge for the LSU game every other year, to Auburn in the middle of nowhere, to Knoxville etc. He loved every minute of it. I know he hooked me early on and no matter what happens from here on out, it has been a wild ride. This year's Georgia game brought back many memories of fights in this game, this was nothing new. I just wish we had Jack Youngblood out there. LOL

    Vandy is not the Vandy of Old, I hope we win for the players and students this weekend, It is Homecoming! It is time for us to stand up and holler!

    We also have a lot of 'Wait 2 or more years for this and that', it's horrifying.

    What an idiotic strawman. We are talking about rooting for or against the Gators in a football game Mr. Dramatic. TRUE Gators do not root for the Gators to lose games. Period. If you are rooting for losses then you need to join Warchant.

    It's pretty simple to me. WM has lost the majority of the fan base. Sure, a few fans like mdf and wormwood support him, but there were a few Zook supporters to the end also. Once you lose a majority of the fans, I think the only way you can turn it around is to win a championship quick. Even WM blind supporters concede that a championship is not on the agenda next year. Therefore, I predict an end to this era (for better or worse) soon. If you think it was ugly between that fan and WM in Jax, wait until you see what happens if we keep losing. That first fan will look like a gentleman and a scholar compared to the riff raff that will come out of the water. Once the dam breaks (and I believe it broke in the first quarter of the Jax game), that's all she wrote (like it or not).

    I agree as well. It might not be life or death but it's pretty damned important considering the hundreds of millions that flow through the department. And, less is going to be flowing.

    He hasn't lost the majority of the fan base. I think the majority have reservations, but still support him. Muschamp needs to prove it now. You don't get unlimited time at Florida, but he has earned more time than 2 and a half years.

    The reason you may think the majority of the fan base is lost is because the vocal minority go across the internet and on message boards and proliferate their vitriol. Same with sports radio. It is a haven for this type of thing. The level headed people are basically not posting much. The minority are out there with their pitch forks and pounding their chest. If things turn around next year, a 180 will occur.

    I disagree. I was at the Missouri game. Even then, a majority wanted him out after that game. I have a lot of level headed fellow alumni friends. Besides the ones that don't care about football much, every one of them wants him out. Also, The polls on a competing gator message board show overwhelming desire to move on. I'm not arguing that is the right move, just making an observation about what I see. Honestly, I think the dam has broken.
