    OK, play the role of UAA. I have been a season ticket holder in Section 326 since 1994, two seats and they run about $1k per year. Certainly not major dough, but WHY should I renew my seats for 2014?

    I've seen horrible play at home over the past 8 weeks, a 3-3 home record for the year. Crappy offensive play against even the lightest cupcakes and a defense that seemed to mail it in after USCe.

    For 2014, we will be @Bama, @Tenn, hosting LSU and another WLOCP, not to mention another possible beatdown in Clown Town. I can't see 8 wins next year. So, why should I renew tickets for 2014?

    To renew . . . or not to renew. That is the question. Whatever you decide, please keep us posted. This could make for great drama. "Will he or won't he? Stay tuned for next week's exciting episode!"

    If you have to ask, then please don't renew. There are already enough of you guys around. Your seats were filled with garnet and gold today.

    My 6 year old son has worn Gator gear since birth. He bleeds Orange n Blue. Somewhere in the 3rd quarter today he turns to me and says... "I don't want to watch anymore of this", and left the room. I'm still surprised it took him this long with this year and last.

    While Will was clear that he doesn't have a time-table, the sooner the better when it comes to his evaluations and actions for:

    1. recruiting
    2. getting whatever parts of the fanbase he can back on board
    3. UAA ticket sales

    In Christ forever,

    You can watch up close opposing fans celebrate at the swamp, that used to be a rarity.

    Get rid of renewing them if they're in a crappy section and try to pickup better seats now that some people are jumping ship. That's what I'd do. BUY LOW! Now's the time to buy...unless the UAA raises prices again or others won't sell for cheap and let them sit empty. :(

    You'll regret getting rid of your seats in a few seasons when you won't be offered tickets to the MNC game as you're not a season ticket holder. :)

    I've asked myself the same question over and over. I'm sure I'll be asking it again tomorrow on the long ride home.

    My answer has been to support my school and the kids. I'm keeping my support, but dropping from 3 to 2 tickets and my booster contribution to the minimum until agent m is gone.

    No sir. I WAS there with my 14 year old daughter. I was embarrassed at how the student section was 2/3 empty 11 minutes before game time.

    So I need to keep chucking money at the UAA with no desire on its end for improvement?

    Because I'm a Gator fan, I do not want to see the Gators play when their coaches won't let them play to win. It's criminal. I quit watching today when it was 3rd and 10 and the coaches had Skyler heave the ball two or three yards to guarantee 4th down. I knew it was hopeless and I couldn't watch such a travesty any more.

    A question that burns in my mind is that if Skyler can't throw the ball any better than I could, why in the hell was he given a scholarship? And why is he Murphy's backup? There are four or five other QBs on the squad. None of them can throw a forward pass? I absolutely refuse to believe that.

    Bc they should be paying you for your time and support with the circus show Will has on the field right now. I say continue to support UF in a variety of ways, but don't give up all your hard earned money and family time every weekend if your voice isn't even going to be heard.
