    And I won’t be watching it anymore. Laura Rutledge is the worst.

    She's the only one who can get them back on plan and follow the outline. I like Marty as well but he plays better as a guy flying by the seat of his pants. If no one is minding the script then the show can run right off the tracks. The show needs Laura or someone to be the straight guy while Tim and Marcus can be more comedic. Off the set Paul is largely a lost ball in high weeds as my old coach used to say.

    Well, I tried watching the pre-game show with him twice and stopped counting the errors at 5. That was when I realized he should just shut up and go back to NASCAR where he spent his first 10 years of journalism and is probably is a savant.

    He is the ESPN answer to Taylor Zarzour from the Sirius XM College Sports morning show before he moved back to the Golf Network. Great golf guy, knows less college football than my Doberman. Sure he is a spectacular human being, just glad I do not have to hear one vacuous comment after another.

    Laura stopped by the Proud Gator store a few months back when she was MCing the Miss Florida pageant in Lakeland.. She was 6-7 months pregnant at the time. She is the most genuine person and pretty dang funny too... Lovely lady....

    May be a gem to you, but is unwatchable to me. Nothing to do with being a Gator either. Not a fan of mcgee either. To each his own tho.

    An entire thread about her was deleted months ago because it was taking a negative turn.

    He has been doing CFB stuff for years in other capacities. Again, you should actually read a little bit about him. The story if pretty cool. As for Taylor Z. He did football stuff on the radio here in the Carolina's with Mark Packer years back. He was OK, but a Bama homer.

    Right...but not because of A post. Any thread that turns south can get axed. If we axed every negative post about former Gators, how do so many Jesse Palmer posts seem to survive?

    I am quickly coming to the conclusion we simply use different criterion for assessment of people's abilities. So be it, as I mentioned earlier, to each their own.

    Fair enough. I guess my point is that the whole thread seemed pretty benign to me at the time. I was pretty shocked when it was deleted because it wasn’t like it was getting out of hand, but there were criticisms of her. I took it as Ray or whoever didn’t want to hear it because she used to work here.

    Something to remember is often you may see a thread that has already been heavily edited, so you wont see the offending posts...but it hits a point where we don't want to keep editing it and just can it.

    I don't recall that thread, but that may be the case.

    Laura is the real deal, having interned on Gator Country TV.
    While being a true orange & blue Gator Alum.
    She was a joy to watch & really learned a lot on the Gator Show.
    Laura knows football!
