    All my days are ordinary, and while
    I prefer the pen to the keyboard as a means of communication, unfortunately where I'm currently staying they won't let me use anything sharper than a crayon

    This was pretty epic and I totally admit, I didn't realize I was being trolled until your second post. Well played sir, and thanks for the laugh. Repped.

    I feel like we should warn people to read the whole thread before breaking their keyboard typing angry responses, but what the hell - this is the most fun I've had today. Keep 'em coming, catfish!

    And we take the money and distribute it to needy, hungry students.

    Seriously?

    I mean its been a while since 1965 but those foggy-minded profs and doctors did come up with something useful that must have netted a few coins for UF. :joecool:

    Seriously.

    http://questions.ufl.edu/faq/how-much-money-has-uf-made-in-royalties-from-gatorade/

    But, I don't think we can count football money going to the UAA the same as money going to the university. I think the UAA contributes around 7 million a year to the university, almost all from football revenue.

    As for the base premise of this thread....there are a LOT of reasons to keep Coach Will. We all know he CAN coach defense and he CAN recruit. But there are two main questions now...(1) whether he can make the tough decisions and make two changes on his staff...his offensive line coach and coordinators both have to go. I wish it was when they were leaving the side line and coaching box this afternoon but I know Jeremy has too much class for that and (2) whether after doing that if he can 'sell' any other viable improvement plans to his Athletic Director during the off-season - things that make a lick of sense.

    The bottom line here is C-O-N-F-I-D-E-N-C-E. There isn't much left for Coach Will and his current staff any more and if Boom wants to actually stay, he'd better find a way to muster any belief in Jeremy's head and heart that 2014 he will be vastly different or be prepared to face the music shortly after Nov 30th, 2013 and not some vague time next season.

    I hear ya. Point I was just trying to make that there great thinkers - teachers - at UF before and during and after my days on campus...and in some cases the school has profited from their good work. ...And I do worry that the money making machine that is UF football is taking some heavy financial hits right now. :cry:

    Never was, Longwood. I was at Lake Brantley in it's very earliest days - when the school resembled a vanilla-frosted cake. Lived in Forest City (as it was known back then) - best durn days of my life.:love: Now I'm up here in Manassas, VA working with a guy at AT&T by the name of Pacey who claims to have graduated from Lyman.

    I just left Lake Brantley high school a little over an hour ago, where my daughter had the lead role in a play called Château LaRoche. They've got a decent football team this year that probably won't go past the first round of the playoffs, but has an incredible 10th grade quarterback that played Pop Warner with my sons a few years ago. His name is Jared Bernhardt, and he comes from a very well-known lacrosse family, but mark my words, he'll be an all-state QB by his senior year, if not next year.

    I want so badly to agree with this. Alas, no.
