Guess what Schnellenberger just said...(plus a Gator Club of Miami announcement)

More here from the Florida Sports Writers Association press conferences...

TAMPA -- A quick plug here for the Gator Club of Miami but first another highlight to report from the FSWA college football press conferences.

Florida Atlantic Howard Schnellenberger is one of our favorite personalities in college football. He held court here in Tampa with the state's football writers. Instead of sitting behind the podium like every other coach, Schnellenberger walked through the crowd of reporters with a microphone. He said plenty of interesting things but this was Schnellenberger's best quote (and prediction): "There are going to be seven teams in this state that are just as competitive as the rest year in and year out."

We assume this is Schnellenberger's BIG SEVEN: Florida, Florida State, South Florida, Florida Atlantic, Central Florida, Florida International and Florida A&M.


--Miami's Gators are selling additional tickets for tomorrow's Marlins vs. Phillies game because, frankly, the party has exceeded everyone's expectations. It's going to be a big party for South Florida's Gators fans. Tickets are $21 (located in Section 140, rows four and five) and the deadline to purchase tickets is at 4 p.m. today. Some of the proceeds will support the Gator Club of Miami's scholarship endowment fund. For more information call the Gator Club of Miami hotline (305) 866-5047.

--This Saturday the Gator Club of Miami is planning some "fun in the sun" on South Beach. Gators fans will be playing volleyball on the beach at Ocean Drive and 10th Street. Just look for the orange and blue. The event is free and all Gators are welcomed. BYOB (Bring your own bathing suit.)

(Gator Clause added that last line. Sorry, couldn't resist. Have fun, all, and spike your volleyballs safely.)

Not Florida A&M. I am sure he means Miami.

Looks like someone forgot to re-read their copy. Miami won't be in the "big seven"?

Roll on Gator Nation

Joe, I know you like to joke, but having FIU and Florida A&M part of the big 7 instead of Miami, is absolutely rediculous.


Take a joke friends. Miami is OBVIOUSLY not only a part of the Big Three, but the team with the most national titles.


I don't know, are we still friends? I didnt get invited to the wedding. Congrats by the way. I know you like to joke, you just caught me at a bad time.
