    When I arrived on campus in '66 he was Head Baseball Coach, Assistant Football Coach and Taught handball and tennis as a PE Instructor. Great guy and a good man all around, I said something about the plaque to ADSS and will remind Sully again to ask for it, I hope others might bring it up where & when you can.. I will be very disappointed if the plaque is not part of the new stadium

    Ha ha, that name is a place in Orlando. I don't think Tim Groves would mind UF using that if it ever came about. Great times there, continuously. He is a GREAT GATOR!!!!
    GO GATORS!!!!

    Much like “11”, Mike Bianco doesn’t have much need of an actual pitching coach—he makes all decisions concerning his pitchers and makes ALL trips to the mound—

    Basically his pitching coach is just a bullpen coach so that he’s down there out of Bianco’s way—Just watch him in their dugout this weekend any time that their pitcher struggles with command——pretty sure the word is R A N T—

    It’s a show all of it’s own—

    Glad I saw this. I'll be at the first two games out there and will partake in the festivities in all out gator gear.

    Finger blister on his pitching hand seems to be the issue.

    I started the last game of Coach Fuller’s coaching career in ‘75. He wanted to go out a winner!

    Now bogey—

    I’m not gonna take it that far—

    It’s probably more like Chap tried to employ the ol’ “if I drink a case of col’beer tonight then tomorrow I’ll just sweat out beer, saving my pure energy for the last three innings”—and it didn’t work out as planned—:confused:

    Agreed 100% Lurk—

    And besides, it gives us a great reason to put up with Chappy’s rants doesn’t it!—:devil:
