    Ditto all Jags fans.
    Had a nice time at Miller's Ale House NMB. Found another Jag and we drowned our sorrows, laughing at our inept offense.
    Jags win wld have helped a tiny bit. The loss just threw another level of angst on a lost weekend.

    Between Tim's troubles, Urban Meyer making up a BS story to quit on us and cruise to easy wins with a team I already hated before he went there, the offensive mess the Gators have been for four years and counting now, and the embarrassing headlines from AHern and Cooper over the summer, I'm not bubbling over with enthusiasm about college or pro football.

    It was refreshing to see FIT and Stetson play ......... No pressure and everyone friendly. Brevard co first college football game . Too much pressure in big name colleges and the nfl. Don't care at all for the nfl.

    As a bucs fan . . . it so often seems as though I watch the same game on Sunday that I watched on Saturday.

    Weird.

    Exactly. He'll learn that doing with someone else other than just himself will make it better...and longer. :wink:

    I don't know, wish I could get over it. Used to go fishing and that would make me feel better. It has a serious impact on my overall happiness. I recognize this is a problem.

    I don't care about the NFL, just root for gator players success on Sundays

    Not even close. I'd trade a Giants Super Bowl for a Gator regular season win.

    After the game I told my wife I wouldn't go out to dinner anymore and refused to do anything. I distracted myself on Sunday, but still wanted to punch somebody in the face. The worst is going to work on Monday and pretending like its no big deal. If I had the power I would fire everyone that asked me today "what happened to the gators". F everyone.

    Are we related?

    I drank from noon to midnight, Saturday. Smoked a FULL pack of cigarettes. (I quit smoking). Sunday was brutal, physically and mentally. Didn't want to talk to anyone. And sadly enough, it's still bothering me. It won't get better until after I see some big upsets this weekend, or we beat UT. I need help....

    Please coach -- I don't want to lose to the damn Vols.

    Make something happen -- I really don't care what you have to do, just do it .
