    Pretty sure that Bud is not @wingtee's cold one of choice.

    Tony V. is the SOS of college baseball. Everyone not a Gators fan HATED Steve and wanted nothing more than to see UF get pounded though it didn't happen very often. This year may well be Tony's Nebraska beating. A wake up call.

    Get used to Tony V. He's not going anywhere and UT is building a facility as nice as any.

    I do hope our Gators can at least split games going forward. We've only beaten Tony V. 2 of the last 9.

    Why do you continue to come on a Gator board and brag about a university that Gator fans despise and than compare SOS to that piece of crap that coaches UT baseball.

    SOS changed the game of college football at a fundamental level. It used to be like Woody Hayes said: When you throw the ball three things can happen and two of them are bad. (I always thought he had that wrong as there were four things that could happen and three were bad: Intercepted, incomplete and sacked being the three bad things.) In the SEC teams were running (pun intended) the veer offense.

    Spurrier changed the game to a speed and skill oriented offense and spread the field. And made the passing game more vertical than the pro game at that time.

    Coach V has not changed the game of college baseball. Any comparison to SOS is just about how jerky and successful they can be.

    Still waiting on Coach V's natty.

    I'm still waiting too.

    The University of Houston with Ware and Klingler changed the game of college football. SOS brought it to the SEC.

    You have to have a lot of success to change how the traditional powers play the game.

    You could go back to the Emory and Henry coaches that really spread the field.

    They didn't change college football.

    Added in edit: SOS on rare occasions employed that formation. I think it was mostly thumbing his nose at the opposing coaches.

    Back in 1982 I was out west in Amarillo, Texas with my girlfriend/fiance and met my wife's great aunt Zua. She was a hoot. She had hunted bear and bought an early Corvette that she raced. I liked her.

    Anyway we met up at her condo with a bunch of other folks before having lunch at the country club and she took drink orders. I said that I would like a Jack Daniels neat. She winked at me and said "I like you."

    Added in edit: Her daughter in law asked me what I did and I said that I had a Phd in Engineering Mechanics and was looking for a job. Eventually I ended up at UF.

    She replied that we need more good mechanics.

    She was not the sharpest knife.

    Spurrier's cockiness was nothing like the trash behavior Vitello allowed his team to exhibit this year. Nothing. What a terrible comparison.

    Vitello is just a giant a$$hole.
    I predict no national championships for him ever.

    That's a pretty safe bet.

    In 16 yrs Sully has but one.
    Corbin only two in 20 years despite being able to buy the talent.
    Van Horn, none.
    M.M. zero in 42 years.

    The 'bat flip' needs to be taken care of. Pitchers used to be able to nip that in the bud. You get drilled in the ribs and you talk to your teammate that just batflipped.
