    I love Ron Zook. Dont want him back as HBC, but that man was as passionate about being a Gator as any coach we have had outside of SOS.

    this is one of the most frustrating things about my fellow Gators - the Urban hate, all these years later.

    it's weak, emotionally revealing and immediately shows the immaturity of the individual.

    Urbs gave us 2/3 of our titles and we hate him for it, because he left. too many Gator fans act like their middle school girlfriend dumped them when they think of the most successful Gator football coach not named Spurrier.

    yes, Urban left and it put the program back a while. but Jeremy Foley is the man who led us into the Decade of Darkness. Jeremy Foley hired MacElwain, Jeremy Foley hired Muschamp. Jeremy Foley forced in Charlie Weis and Jeremy Foley even pushed out Spurrier by being a weak ninny and remaining silent while Dave Hart dunked on us and called Spurrier a spoiled child who needed a spanking.

    Urban is from Northern Ohio, and if you don't understand the draw of OSU to Ohio people you either need to travel more or just look inward at your own feelings for UF. other schools also have history and heritage and huge fan bases.

    Agree - mostly. To me it wasn’t that Urban left, it’s how he left. The negative recruiting against us after he left really pissed me off. Urban won two NCs at UF which was wonderful for us, but UF was also the place where Urban was able to win his first NC, which was wonderful for his career. It goes both ways and so should the mutual loyalty.

    The rest of your post is spot on. It’s past time to put all that negative stuff behind us, focus on the amazingly good things that happened, and move forward together. It appears that Urbs is looking at it that way and so should we. It’s a good time to add his name to the Ring of Honor. Celebrate a great time in Gator history, draw positive attention to our program, stroke Urban and boost our stock. He still likes UF and that’s way better for us than if he didn’t, especially now that he’s coaching our local NFL team.
