    We’ve also never had a male flag corpsman twirling a flaming baton at halftime.

    We also never had to ask our conference refs to steal a game from them.

    You had to bring up The Swindle in the Swamp. I had to go to Confession after that game. I rode home with a friend who was an obnoxious Nole fan. One of the few times in my life I pondered what it would be like to live on Death Row.

    I probably should have gone, but didn’t. In the end, I figured God would understand because I’m sure he isn’t a nole fan.

    I did call a nole friend on the way home and asked him if he was more embarrassed that they stole the game or that they had a male flag corpsman twirling a flaming baton.

    At the last Florida-F$U game I was walking in behind a man in Orange & Blue whose wife had on garnet & gold.

    I said, “Sir, I see your wife had a little trouble with her SAT score!” He laughed, she didn’t!

    But they did have THE premier Circus curriculum in the country! We can’t match that!

    You can also remind FSU homers that we tore down their goalposts after coming from behind in the 4th to beat them at Doak in 82.

    We got one down and we’re on our way to the other when a bunch of cops got out on the field.

    The simplest, most condescending shut down answer is;

    listen, you know UF is better, I know UF is better, so why would we waste my time arguing something we both know isn’t true?

    Our mascot doesn’t poop on the field!

    How many nattys did 11 win in 40+ years? 5 and 1/2 is on pace to continue the streak.

    Reggie Collier and Southern Miss just scored another touchdown on the Bob and he still doesn’t realized his team has again been scored upon!

    I was at the Swindle. The sections around me were going ballistic and we had plain clear sight to the south end zone video screen. It wasn't even close. Worst officiated game I've ever seen, and I've seen some bad ones. And that's not just my orange and blue talking, it's my eyes and ears functioning properly.

    THE WORST EVER. That was so blatant, and the fact they got away with it - even to the point of Childress reffing a bowl game that same season - forever ruined me on refs. There are undoubtedly some good ones out there, but none of them stood up and said ‘this is wrong’. They failed to police their own to uphold a standard of honesty and integrity. The worst abuse of the system ever, and the league did zero about it. I’m forever bitter over that one.
