    Just our Annual Reminder when a New Football Season Kicks Off:

    From the time the TV announcers begin to spout off before Kickoff until the Officials walk off the field when they say the game is over, please keep all posts and comments in the Game Threads posted. That's Gator Games and other games of interest that have been posted for everyone.

    Whether it's about the TV Announcers, the Officials, the Coaches, the Players, the Bands, the Fans in The Stands, the Parking Lot, or Whatever, again keep it all on the Game Threads that have been posted once TV coverage begins to when the Officials leave. Experience has shown in the past that when side threads begin about about something, it just encourages more, and dupe threads because of all the clutter that they can bring to more than Page 1. And the Game Thread that has been set up, gets ignored. So, one Game Thread on one Game

    Now if it gets close to a Kickoff time on a game you might think may be of interest to others, go ahead and post it if you like to do so IF you do not see we've already had it posted. Just a good idea to check just more than Page 1. Sometimes game threads posted can fall back a page or two before their Kickoff begins and attention on the game begins to, of course, picks up.

    Thanks and Go Gators! It's almost Time! :)

    We will have game threads for all SEC football games as well as FSU and Miami.

    And I will add....if you can't handle a little ADVERSITY.....the game thread is NOT for you.

    We're in the game until the final whistle blows.

    If you can't handle that - go for a walk or something USEFUL!


    Try acting like you've been there before...and leave the drama for those who haven't.

    Respectfully,
    Baz :)

    I apologize as I created a thread about the game and should not have just now. I won't make that mistake again.

    Ray, I just wanted to say thank you for your game threads, I am at North Camp in the Sinai Peninsula, no U.S. tv, and the wifi is too slow to stream games (even just the radio broadcast) so I rely heavily on the game threads and the refresh button to get a feel for the games.
    I appreciate your hard work and reliability.

    Thanks again Ray.

    My goodness, what great comments! I appreciate it very much. I really do. It does take time, sometimes a lot, to get a game thread, whether it's Gator or another game of interest, organized and posted. I have goals. One is to post the best game threads on any sports fan site for any team anywhere. Just a volunteer here, not a paid staff guy. Another goal is to anticipate any possible question someone's going to have, and get it posted before it's even thought of, then asked:)

    And what I do on here pales in comparison to what your have to do. Without guys like you, I would not have, and none of us would, the freedom to do the things we like to do everyday. May God bless and protect you and all your buddies, and bring you all safely home.

    Please keep it civil in the game thread. If things start going bad don’t attack the players, athletic directors, recruiters and coaches. Don’t make personal attacks against your fellow Gator fans. Disagree all you want but do it civilly and with class. This is not political. This is football.

    As The Beach Boys sang so many years ago.....

    BE TRUE TO YOUR SCHOOL!!!!

    Reminder:

    We will have game threads for every SEC football game this season. The most threads for that will be 7. We will throw in a Miami and FSU game thread so that will be nine.''

    Others may start a game thread for other games if there is interest.
