    We lose to Miami in the first game and win all the rest under Charlie Pell.

    Yes, we spanked Georgia 24-3 that year, as I recall. Back then that was a route. With the scoring whiners of today, that would not be acceptable.

    We beat Miami 28-3 one season when they won the NC. Imagine the howling on this board if the team gave up as easily as some who post here.

    The 3rd RB was Lorenzo Hampton and that O-line was the best that money could buy!

    Gotta love that kool aide some of you are drinking. Before this game a large percentage of people on this site were saying we would blow out Miami.

    I grew up with Phil Bromley starting center he lived 5 houses down from me.
    His younger brothers Scott(lsu) and Chris played for the Gators in the late 80's early 90's

    This. Kerwin would be the key.

    Yes, Galen did coach it. Pell was fired during the season. He got caught for what most were doing...........DID YOU KNOW---

    Pell was undersized at 187 pounds, but he became an all-Southeastern Conference guard and defensive tackle.[1] Pell played for Bryant's Crimson Tide from 1961 to 1963, including Bryant's first national championship team in 1961

    Pell took full responsibility for the violations in August 1984 and announced he would resign at the end of the season. However, on September 16, only three games into the season, the NCAA announced that Florida was alleged to have committed 107 major infractions--including spying on other teams' practices, payments and gifts to players, and allowing walk-ons to stay in the athletic dorm. That night, university president Marshall Criser fired Pell and named his offensive coordinator, Galen Hall, as interim coach.[8] Hall and the 1984 Gators won Florida's first-ever Southeastern Conference (SEC) football championship, but the SEC university presidents voted to vacate the Gators' 1984 SEC title after the season was over. In January 1985.

    During his time at the University of Florida, Pell led the fund-raising efforts to make several major facility improvements at Florida Field, including the construction of a world-class training facility (the Ben Hill Griffin, Jr. Athletic Training Center), a major expansion of the south end zone seating and the construction of the first luxury skyboxes. Pell is credited by many with returning the Florida football program to national prominence and for rehabilitating the finances of the school's athletic department

    Ricky Nattiel was a great WR for that team.
