  1. Folks, some of you have asked if we were trimming our forums since there are no sports at the moment. We’re going to keep everything open on the forums to provide a sense of normalcy here. It’s our hope Gator Country can be a place of comfort for you during these crazy times. Be safe my friends and take care. -Ray and the GC staff. GO GATORS IN AL KINDS OF WEATHER!

    PS. If you happen to find yourself in tight financial circumstances with regards to renewing here please reach out to us. We’d be happy to help sort it out.

The first and the last

    One thing that I have noticed... 'bling' and 'badazz facilities does indeed matter the the recruits... That is a given the recruits have almost all talked about it in one way or another. It's not my money so why not get the big donors to pony-up for the prestige and and recruiting buzz that it creates. So, even if it didn't matter to me, that's not the point... it does matter to the recruits. All we have to do is remember one thing, collage football is a BUSINESS. and we cannot afford NOT to reinvest in that business. In fact it's damn near suicidal to your football program not to invest heavily in your football facilities. Scott Stricklin knows this and he is doing the right thing. He doing his freaking job... and getting donors to invest in Gator athletics and Gator football again.
