  1. Folks, some of you have asked if we were trimming our forums since there are no sports at the moment. We’re going to keep everything open on the forums to provide a sense of normalcy here. It’s our hope Gator Country can be a place of comfort for you during these crazy times. Be safe my friends and take care. -Ray and the GC staff. GO GATORS IN AL KINDS OF WEATHER!

    PS. If you happen to find yourself in tight financial circumstances with regards to renewing here please reach out to us. We’d be happy to help sort it out.

2020 where have these posters gone thread

    Prison, death, permanent ban or wife. Has to be one of the above for most. It’s an addiction for most of us and a great way to follow the Gators. So many of you have great insight and info.

    I personally liked what @wormwood brought to GC. He brought a more analytical perspective and almost always accompanied his post with stats to back up his claims. He allowed trends and stats to form his opinions instead of bias and hope like a lot of us Homers do. Gotta have that balance.

    Also liked @GATORAZ for his in depth recruiting info he brought. Seemed to have spent many hours watching prospects film and often shared what he seen with us.

    It seems as though my buddy @OaktownGator left us but only because he became a MOD. :(o_O It felt like we used to post with each other in threads for hours a day... now I'll see a post every so often from him.

    If I think long enough I could name a ......oooh @Jaggator and his infamous ( and sorely missed) Babes & thongs thread. I loved that thread. Could take in all the eye candy ya wanted with no worries of diabetes :confused:

    Agree with everything you wrote except wormwood. His analytics may have been interesting but he slighted Spurrier every chance he could which took away from his supposed objective analyses

    Thanks for the mention and I do miss those days and great posters and conversations.

    Between moderating insider boards and Too Hot .... and trying to live a semiproductive life, it doesn't leave much time for Swamp Gas. So, gone but not forgotten. Carry on the good fight!

    Yep, Wormwood was a classic example of manipulating/cherrypicking stats to support a lame point. I still recall him arguing that Richt was a better coach than Vince Dooley and Ga fans agreed with him. Too bad he wasn't around when Richt was canned

    ...MULE....bring back Mule. Apparently, he had an infraction and violated the secret covenant and was subsequently put on double secret probation. He was a mod too. Unfairly axed IMHO. :(

    Jaggator...yes, indeed...'a tear rolleth down mine cheek.' argh:(

    Go Gators.:D;)

    Good call - whatever happened to Ghetto?

    My memory is fuzzy, but around 1998 my girlfriend (who never attended UF but became a huge Gator fan) told me about something on the internets called The Swamp. I joined at that time. Can't remember all the different iterations of the board, but this community has been home/family for more than 20 years.

    During such a span, many good folks will come and go. Some have "life" happen and others find themselves at odds with the forum protocols. I don't always agree with the mods or how the board is run, but I appreciate the job they do to make this forum special. And after my brief sentimental moment, I have a short list of posters who come around from time-to-time, though I wish they would visit more frequently:

    @tommyuf21
    @adamgator96
    @AnthroMatt

    Too many great posters to mention. Bunch have been mentioned on this thread (OBOB, any such list would include Jag), etc.

    YES - bring back MULE. That situation is a travesty.

    Yeah, I know he seemed a bit "too objective" on SoS, but I enjoyed the perspective of Wormwood. Didn't always agree, but grew to appreciate his contributions.
