    Low class antics from a guy who played like crap. Franks did nothing to gloat over.

    I’m hoping we see a lot of Jones in the next two games.

    Miami has solid talent across the board, many of their players are UF caliber. Knew it would be a dogfight, I didn’t understand all the 45-7 predictions. Oh well, 1-0 en route to what’s hopefully a playoff berth.

    No way to know that. We have a big time win under our belt, a bye week, then a cupcake. That Is 3 weeks (almost another training camp) before we see a team with a pulse.

    Hey no snaps over our head tonight!!! We fight. I like that. Even if it was our own mistakes that caused us to have to. How many plays in a row was our D on the field? A lot of other teams would have folded. We didn't back down. Be proud of these kids. They will get better. I believe that. Go Gators forever!!!

    BUT we didn’t. Spurrier and Urban had a few of these. Champ and Mac did not. CDM found a way. He’s in the Spurrier Urban category. Great days ahead.

    This board is disgusting, same on you all.

    Beating a rival is always a great win.

    The vitriol for Franks is unwarranted and nasty

    Yes, a lot of bad play tonight but our ends and our OL came to play and overcame a -2 TO differential. If you know anything about football, you should know that is nearly impossible.

    Zuniga and Greenard should be arrested for murder after this game. What, 11 sacks? Add that to how many holding calls and then the holds that should have been called. Dominant play that you don't see when we play cupcakes

    You all bitch and moan, I'll take the win

    Outscored Miami 17-7 in the second half. It does seem like the Florida coaching staff makes good adjustments at halftime and the team may potentially wear down their opponent. We have have seen that in several previous games last year, when the Gators get up, they tend to pounce. We need the mentality of: the teams of the nineties under Spurrier or the teams under Meyer, that would take hold of the game from early on, like this team had a chance to early on. Hopefully we see the evolution of this group to one of those.

    We will find out over the next several weeks. Too early to tell.

    I said I would take a 1 point win. But who would have thought we could play so poorly. Difference between the team that sparked Michigan and that played today is vast. Que paso?

    And I counted at least 11 holds on the Miami OL alone that should have been called too.
