    Well we did beat the tar out of them recently, but Michigan is a football first school.

    When was the last time we beat Bama?

    Added in edit:

    Actually, I don't know. I don't follow football that closely.

    I came to UF in 1982 and we have never really won anything in football then. Not even one SEC championship. And yet we were a football school. Winning is not the defining characteristic.

    Oh I agree with you there, but I just like making fun that they haven't beaten their rival in a very long time, so they never get to play in the championship game. That has to change if they want to become a legit contender in football. I lived in Columbus for a few years of my life, ironically when OSU beat Miami. ;) Most people from that area think Michigan football is a farce. LOL

    We win the all sports trophy in the SEC all the time. VT can NOT say that about the ACC. There is NO comparison.

    True, but if you polled most posters on gatorcountry about which they would want: all sports or an SEC or Natty football championship, which way would you think it would go?

    Okay, I am running out of artistic license. No one is posting anything to move things forward. Gotta go with a retread. Just remember, change "Micky" to "Kerry" and then go have at it...

    This got me thinking a bit. Some schools would rather win a title in a sport they are perceived as being good in on a regular basis. VaTech has an occasional strong basketball team but Beamer made them known year in and year out in Football. A Title solidifies their position so I imagine a football title would be chosen over basketball 9 times out of 10.

    Florida should be considered a new basketball power but right or wrong I think many consider the 04s as lightning in a bottle which it was of course. I think to really wake the fan base up and narrow the gap with the football program the basketball team needs a title with a different coach and a different era. It's a bit absurd of course but that's what it would take to make Florida fans in general really start to close the gap.

    Just rambling since Blackshear apparently doesn't know what he's doing and there isn't much to talk about

    Yep. So annoying. You don’t call a presser to announce a guy is leaving.

    Nothing about a presser on Mike Young's page. Saw a random tweet from some fake account about this, but that's it.

    I wasn't talking about the relative success or prestige of each school's basketball program (or overall sports programs). You're right that there is no comparison. My comparison was that each is considered a football school where the majority of fans' passion is football, followed by spring football. I guess the truth hurts considering the reaction my post has received. The topic has been rehashed on this board and nauseam.

    IF there is indeed a press conference tomorrow at VT, it's not necessarily a done deal that he's staying there. He may have requested this in a way to say "thank you" to the VT community and announce his transfer. Ok, maybe I'm reaching . . . :emoji_thinking:

    This would be an odd thing to have a press conference about. A player not transferring???
