    Yep, looks that way on paper at the moment. Here’s hoping ND is actually mediocre or that we witnessed what will be fsu’s best effort of the season. I was starting to believe the board members that said Norvell cannot coach.

    Did anyone else notice the fear in Brian Kelly’s eyes last night as the fourth quarter played out? He looked like the school bully told him he was going to get beaten up after school.

    Too many Gators in here are soft.

    It is possible to recognize Milton’s bravery in his comeback, yet root for him to lose because be is a Hole. They are not mutually exclusive.

    May his knee hold up while he goes 0-12 throwing 55 INTs.

    Go Gators!!!!

    I get that football is a game and a player’s health is more important. Fact is, Gator fans couldn’t care less about Milton until he got hurt. So basically, his claim to fame on here comes from the board’s sympathy for a horrendous injury.

    For me it was much more tiresome to hear Joe Tessitore extol the game as if it were a world changing event than any other topic. It was a game for goodness sake, not the second coming!

    I never saw the play where 2 dudes tackled him. The leg was a mess to the point they were worried about the blood flow to the area and might need to amputate is damn leg. My hat is off to the surgeons that put humpty back together.

    Inside your head.
    He checked that knee every time he sat down. I fear it's just another blown out knee waiting to happen. I pray not. He's a warrior.

    I am all about empathy. In fact, I hope everyone has a lot more empathy for him after November 27th. Shoot, I hope I will be crying my eyes out like at the end of Cool Runnings.

    Wow. Going full nolie Bc your hooch got all hot n wet over an ESPN mush piece that happen to include FSU...

    Did you cry for Winston's rape vic? Gibson's? Especially after bowden slung his clout at the court for leniency for him? The multitude of other rape vics swept under the garnert n gold rug to protect their football program from getting sullied (by the filth of truth mind you)?

    Disappointing Wing.

    Especially your cheap attempt to throw shade at the Gators, in order to somehow justify your warm fuzzies for FSU...

    Mine goes back further. They came to Gainesville in 81 with their “One for the thumb in 81” t-shirts with a hand with four rings. They had won 4 in a row, but that day Pell had the team ready and we dominated them.

    Also have to hate on them for Sebastian Janikowski, although we did make him pay for his mocking Gator Chomp in 97.

    The only redeeming factor of that whole program is that their field is named after one of our former coaches who beat them the night they were trying to dedicate the field to their coach.

    His story in a way reminds me of Alex Smith of the Redskins. Just an incredible comeback and doing something he truly is passionate about. I too hope for his safety but there's always risk in football.
    IMHO, sow would have won the game had he started. He has the "it" factor just like Trask. The guy elevated the play of ucf and will do the same for sow provided he remains healthy. Like most who watched that game, I came away impressed with the improvement of sow. Night and day difference over the last few years. Granted, ND is usually overhyped and overrated but they seem to be a top 20 team. Beating sow this year will not be a cakewalk and unless our qb makes improvements in reading defenses and passing the ball, that game will be a dogfight.

    He shopped for a team to clear him because UCF would not sign off. FSU was desperate so... He reinjures that leg there will be regrets. Death to the Noles

    Of course, but you don’t have to be an ass about it. “We will play anyone anytime any place!”

    Dude, I'm an ass I get it. But if he doesn’t want to be categorized as a clown, he could look at the bigger picture. There’s a lot of money involved in the decision process. Pull the camera back.

    Meh, Spurrier had much sharper zings towards opponents that fans fawned over.

    0-12 will suffice.
