    Man, when someone brings up 11-1 to a select group of Gator fans, they lose it like the hitchhiker in Something About Mary when Ben Stiller brings up 6 minute abs.

    7 minute abs!!!! :)

    But seriously, why lie? Why just overtly lie? Everyone knows we lost the game. Everyone knows it counts as part of the record. It's just so damn petty to say 11-1. We were 11-2. Good lord. It's just SUCH a puss move.

    I posted this on other threads. Foley is now on record that his career is closely attached to the success of Muschamp through the 2014 season.

    I wish both of them luck. I think they are going to need it. And the athletic economics are going to suffer until the football team wins some games against the better teams we play.

    11-1 in the regular season. Only one bowl counts. Stop overreacting... oh wait, nevermind, thats all some of you guys know.

    All of the bowls count though. Everybody that has ever said we were 11-1 last is wrong, and would have been saying we were 12-1 if we had won the Sugar Bowl.

    Acting like the game didn't happen is a bitch move.

    You get awarded with a bowl, then it counts towards your record. Simple as that. If you don't want it on your record, than forfeit the bowl...which is as much of a bitch move as denying its existence.

    How I interpret Foley's statement is that he doesn't want to pay the $8 million buyout, as well as the additional buyout to bring in another big name coach. Charlie Strong's buyout, for instance, is $5 million. So you're looking at up to $13 million down the drain just to bring in someone new. Only then do you get to the salary negotiations. The bottom line for Foley is that it's cheaper to keep Muschamp.

    If there is something to complain about, our fans will find it and beat it to death. Simply pathetic.

    If it was a dominating 11-1 regular season then not one of us would be arguing with Foley's statement. The way we won is what's disappointing. There's not many years you can luck out the way we did in games. 11-1 playing good in one phase of the game..... Doesn't look too bright of a future but only time will tell and hopefully ONLY one more year will tell us... Good or bad

    Foley's willingness to promote this story on gatorzone (versus having an outside reporter quote him) shows the high level of commitment he has for WM. Seeing this story makes me doubt that he would force WM to fire Pease.

    There's got to be something good on TV Saturday night. It won't be the Gator game.

    Could also mean he can say what he wants and no questions are asked...it's "his" website.
