Meyer: Gators healthier right now than ever before

This is when you know you live in a rural college town: An owl almost ate my cat tonight. No kidding. Swooped right down from the tree, talons and all. OK, on with the show...

GAINESVILLE -- Florida coach Urban Meyer agreed on Tuesday after practice that his team is healthier right now than it has been all season.

"Couldn't ask for much better than where we are right in the middle of the season," Meyer said. "I'm pleased with where we're at."

A few Gators are suffering from minor injuries but UF's health concerns are nothing compared to Kentucky, which travels to Gainesville this weekend with eight starters either out for the season or injured. That list includes the Wildcats' two most consistent offensive players, wide receiver Dicky Lyons, Jr. and running back Derrick Locke.

While the Gators are healthy at nearly every position, a few running backs remain limited this week. Emmanuel Moody (high-ankle sprain) is practicing again but he is continues to favor his injured ankle, according to Meyer. Moody's status remains questionable.

Running back Chris Rainey (shoulder) returned to practice this week but his shoulder still seems to be a concern. Rainey, who has had surgery on both of his shoulders, separated his right shoulder against LSU.

"It was out," Rainey said of his shoulder. "I had to wait until one of the trainers put it back in and I felt fine when they put it back in."

Kestahn Moore (ankle) is listed as the Gators' starting running back against Kentucky, according to UF's most recent depth chart. With Moody and Rainey still sore, UF running back Jeffery Demps is expected to receive additional carries against Kentucky.

HICKS, JOHNSON REMAIN STARTERS
UF back-ups Brandon Hicks (weak-side linebacker) and Carl Johnson (left guard) appear to be making the most of their chances in the starting line-up. Weak-side linebacker Dustin Doe (hernia) returned from his surgery this week and left guard Marcus Gilbert (ankle) is also listed as available but neither player is back in the starting line-up, according to UF's game notes.

Johnson showed drastic improvements against LSU and Hicks (15 tackles in six games) appears to be a reliable option. Doe, a second-year starter, has only appeared in four games this season.

Drevil_bigglesworth1MEYER GETS HAIRCAT...Names it Mr. Bigglesworth
The coach got a haircut this week. It's nice and neat for homecoming. Meyer is looking a little thinner these days, especially in the face. I asked him if he has lost weight and he said, "Not that I've noticed." Maybe it's just the haircut.

LOL, few things.

1) That story about your cat is ridiculous. Whereabouts do you live in G-ville that you're in that type of woody area? (Obviously not asking specifically.)

2) Good info on Moody. I heard there was someone else (one of our LBs?) who practiced today also...name escapes me right now as I'm exhausted.

3) They're doing a tribute to Mr. Two Bits on Saturday at The Swamp...and everyone's supposed to wear orange for the game.

4) I can't believe you posted about Urban Meyer getting a haircut! Common...

Speaking of, have you been to Chip on University next to Pita Pit? Not only is he the man, he cuts hair for tons of the players and used to do it for Spurrier and some of the old school guys as well. Highly recommended...cut my hair every month for four years.

KUTGW.

Wow, UM is on the rise!!!

• Seven UM true freshmen -- seven players who were in high school last year -- have scored at least one touchdown this season, by far the country's most prolific group of youngsters.

• Five true freshmen scored in UM's 49-31 comeback victory Saturday at Duke, believed to be the first time that has happened in UM history, and possibly, in upper-division college football

ESPNU is National TV? Ok buddy. Keep smoking that South Beach ganja.

ESPN is
even ESPN 2
CBS
ABC
NBS

That is National TV

If it werent for the Gators and Noles the U would be lost somewhere on ESPN ocho which is broadcast to like 3 homes in the country.

Maybe try attending a Canes game and bringing some family with you. You probably have about 50 family members living in your 2 bedroom apartment so you should be able to double the Canes attendence just with your household.

How about those Canes highlights this past weekend? ESPN had a 3 hour highlight show just on this past weekend of College football and the Gators were mentioned a bunch of times and they were on a bye but the Canes? Nowhere to be found.

I love kicking you fools while you are down. Especially since you guys think you are good and that "NEXT YEAR" is the year. BAWAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

The Hurricanes have turned from thugs to a bunch of babies with every excuse in the book. EXCUSE U.

Work on getting Randy Shannon that contract extension and attend those Hurricanes games!

I'm such a girl.

Manny

2 INTS against Duke in one half of play is BCS WORTHY????

I wish I had you as my teacher in school


Im so gatored worried

Ok here we go:

LAST YEAR--the Canes didnt make one of the thousand bowl games, had a team quit on their head coach, got shut out to a mediocore Virginia team in the last game ever at the Orange Bowl.
EXCUSE from last year...COKER MESSED UP THE TEAM

THIS YEAR---Canes lose to both Florida and Florida State something that has not been done in forever. Lose at home to North Carolina and play a crap game against UCF.
EXCUSE fromt his year...THE TEAM IS TOO YOUNG

Next year....Lets start laying out the excuses now. You will need every single one. Nix? The players still too young? You have 500 RBs but no offensive line or secondary? Better start coming up with all your excuses now because next year will be an even more painful season..BOOK IT!

girl,,,,,,,,

Start laying out the EXCUSES for EXCUSE U!!!!

ohhhh Coker messed up the team..the same team that Randy Shannon was coaching too

ohhh Patrick Nix stinks

Marcus Forston has a cold

Jacory Harris is awesome! Did you see those 2 second half INTs against the top 10 DUKE opponent? Just a stud! OHHH But he is TOO YOUNG!!!

You guys are such a bunch of BABIES!!!

You guys STINK, plain and simple. STINK and thats being nice.

You have a garbage head coach, a pathetic offensive coordinator, you have no O-line, your secondary is filled with a bunch of girls, your depth is non-existant but you have about 500 RBs coming in. Yeah thats gonna help when you have a garbage O-line!
Next year is looking real bright...PUFFF PUFFFF

I wish I could stop myself!!!!!

Yeah we are pretty similar.

We just won a National Title 2 years ago and you are living in the 80s.

We have one of the best coaches in the country and you have a coach who is 9-10 and didnt make one of the thousand bowl games last year.

We are ranked #5 and you are, well, you guys arent even #5 in the weak ACC.

Keep coming up with those EXCUSES THOUGH!!!!

EXCUSE U!!!!!

I got more...plenty more...Your coach is creating quite a resume. He can bring this to his next job.

1) Lost to Florida and Florida State in the SAME YEAR something that has not been done in a very long time

2) Had a team quit on him

3) Lost 48-0 in the last game ever at the storied Orange Bowl

4) Has a losing record as a head coach and a losing record in the weak ACC

5) Constantly loses home games

6) Didnt even make one of the thousand bowl games last year

7) Is struggling to make a bowl game this year

8) Throws players under the bus like no other coach

9) Makes promises to recruits that hurt his team just so he can say he had a top 10 recruiting class

10) Is the #1 coach at crying and coming up with EXCUSES


I post all day from school, can't help myself. All my crap ends up on the UM blog!

To all Gator fans:

You won, we lost! Someday we will win again, and you will lose. But that is not why I am here. Two LOSERS who claim to be Gator fans, are posting a bunch of garbage on our blog. Now I'm all for a good laugh, but these two are "F"ing crazy! Not funny crazy, but psycho crazy!! Cuckoo!!

I cannot stop them from posting on our blog, it's a free country, but we will be bringing you all their posts to Gator Clause, and we will let you do with them as you will! If you agree with them, then so be it! But you will have to wade through this mess the same as us!

NOTHING SAYS LOSER LIKE POSTING ON A RIVALS BLOG 5 WEEKS AFTER THE GAME HAS BEEN PLAYED

Enjoy!!

Healthy ?? I think i have heard that before. What we really need is consistency. Kentucky is hurt and we should win easily. We have to beat everyone convincingly if we want to be considered for the national championship.

"NOTHING SAYS LOSER LIKE POSTING ON A RIVALS BLOG 5 WEEKS AFTER THE GAME HAS BEEN PLAYED"

Calling the kettle black arent we. You sound a lot like these old ultra-conservative politicians who say "Abortion is wrong. It is for the devil." and meanwhile their 23 year old mistress is getting money to go get an abortion.

Look who is on GatorClause--a supposed Canes fan.

Well I guess we know who the imposter CokeCanes is now=Sarasota'Cane

I hope you enjoy the rest of the college football season rooting hard against the Gators and reading the Gator blog daily. I am glad the Gators can provided excitement during your horribly disappointing college football season. You should be able to find the Gators though, unlike the Canes, we are the ones in the top 5 and are on National TV.

Enjoy the bottom of the weak ACC!

That was not me before, but I like the concept!!

NIce job "Sarasota 'cane" (canesrule 9'ships) When you run out of tired gay, blow up doll, and butt plug jokes that you've rerun 10,000 times, just start spamming the site. Good work buddy.

ITS ALL ABOUT THE excUUUse

P.S. Coke,

That was not me before, but I like the concept!!


P.S. Boooooooo, it was me, your Hurricane twin!

Sarasota 'cane stated it well, no need for me to say anything else, except.........

All my UM rantings will continue to be pasted on this site (Until I can control myself), just to show my Gator friends how funny it is.
I'm so funny!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11

Love, CokeCanes twin!!!!

Wow, I mean these Canes fans are really trying to ruin this blog. This is ABSURD.

jo, want to do some deleting of these posts?

You guys need to grow up and get a life, should be no Canes fans posting crap here AND no Gators fans posting over there. I don't come by to hear B.S., unfounded and non-factual rants from Canes fans and to defend my team over-and-over again...the standings, schedule, conference and recent history speak for themselves.

I come here to talk Florida football and basketball. Grow the f*** up.

Wow, I mean these Canes fans are really trying to ruin this blog. This is ABSURD.

I apoligize to all the blog abiding Gator fans on this site. I will no longer post here, but I will copy all of CokeCanes/Canerule and their alias' posts back here, so you can see first hand what they are doing to our blog, Eye on the U. They have COMPLETELY ruined the blogging experience on our fan site. It has been going on FOR MONTHS.

These two LOSERS "patrol" our blogs on a daily basis, and make negative comments about anything that is posted. I do not even think CokeCane is a Gator alum. He seems to be a Junior college student somewhere in the Miami area! If you guy's want to crown these losers as reps for your blog, go ahead. We are done with them. I am open to any solution to this problem. I think having accounts would help, or maybe banning the ip addresses of the offenders.

Again my apoligies, enjoy the rest of the season!

Adam S.,

I live in the duck-pond area east and north of university and main, if that makes any sense. I posted the thing about the haircut as a joke.

Just wait until Feb. when UF and UM are really battling for recruits. Pretty sure these blog posts will get even more ridiculous. Unlike some writers, I don't make a habit of deleting posts. Let's keep the poor language to a minimum, though. Please. Youngsters use computers, too.

-jo-

I know exactly where you're talking about...there are definitley some owls over there. That's pretty damn crazy.

I know you posted the haircut thing as a joke, I just couldn't believe I was reading that.

Yeah, I hear ya, I was just pretty steamed when I came on and say 18 comments and they were all crap.

Sarasota...I understand your point...I guess I'd be PO'd as well. But two wrongs don't make a right. The Canes should know that. ;)

jo, yeah, I guess you don't have to delete posts. But having accounts on here would be a lot better than just being able to type in a name and post as anyone. Perhaps an idea for management?

Meyer gets "haircat"??? I'm not familiar with that breed Jo, but they must be very expensive. Didn't Dr. Evil rock one of those? Oh wait, that was a "hairless cat."

An owl almost made away with your kitty? Pffft. I'l be impressed when the offending Megascops Asio tries to make off with your dog.

Rainey shoulder is "still a concern?" I saw it posted earlier in the week that he was back at practice at "full speed." I don't like the smell of this. He should sit out this week IMO.

Should def. sit out this week...we have Demps and Moody that can go along with Percival.

Moody should sit out too. High ankle sprains are serious.

BRING ON KEESTAHN and a strong dose of Demps.

Jacory's dad could probably be a better head coach than Randy Shannon, maybe the U should hire him next. They probably have 100 bucks leftover that they could hire him.

You get what you pay for--Randy Shannon cheap hire--garbage head coach

Dude rawpimple, did some Cane steal your girl or is one bangin your mom. Jeez
its obvious Canes are under your skin cause you live on their boards.
4 losses with Jesus at QB, hilarious!!

Abovereality, you sound like a better coach than Shannon. Maybe you should apply because after his first two EXCUSES YEARS, and next year he will be looking for another job

rawpimple wrote on 10/21/2008 10:37:22 PM:
Are you kidding? Have you seen the stats? Find their way to the endzone with the 102nd ranked offense out of 119 college teams. These stats come after playing some weak teams like Duke, UCF, A and M, and the mighty Charelston Southern.
You are drinking the same Kool-Aid.

rawpimple wrote on 10/22/2008 09:07:28 AM:
How about these stats for the AMAZING Canes offense:

1) 5 home losses for Randy Shannon in 2 years (and the year isnt over yet)

2) 3-8 total ACC record and lets face it the ACC isnt the greatest conference

3) #102 out of 119 in Total Offense this year and these games factor in all the weak teams you played like Duke, UCF, A and M

4) 92nd out of 119 in turnover margin

5) 73rd in rushing offense

6) 93rd in passing offense

7) How about defense???
WORST TEAM IN THE COUNTRY in RED ZONE DEFENSE!

And now all of a sudden you have no more complete joke teams to play like Duke, Charleston Southern, UCF (well maybe NC STATE) and all of a sudden you are going to win the ACC or even win it next year???????

WOW!!!!!!

rawpimple wrote on 10/22/2008 09:12:33 AM:
Things are looking much better for the Dolphins than the Canes. At least the Dolphins have good management and coaches.

3-8 Record in the ACC.

name me any excuse you want but thats a horrible stat.

5 home losses!!!!

But you beat Duke and barely beat UCF so things are looking good.

DELUSIONAL!!!!! You guys are more DELUSIONAL than Casey anthony's parents.

I think it is so funny how some people use these forums to discredit the "U".

I have to assume that these are fans of all of those schools that were rolled over, beaten and embarrassed by the Canes for all of those years and their psyche was irreparably damaged by the beatings so out of envy, frustration and pain, they get their "therapy" by coming out of their cages any time the local team is going through down times well, get as many punches in as you can "you all" because times...they are changing. LOL!!!

rawpimple wrote on 10/22/2008 09:36:30 AM:
This good? They have the SAME EXACT RECORD AS LAST YEAR. How is that improvement? They are ranked at 102 in total offense!!!

You guys are soooooooooo BLIND it is incredible.

I hear you Chatbuster. Especially little kids who should be in school like Rawpimple. By the way Raw, how bout bustin that thing, you're gross. Lay off the sweets, and the pizza, as your face is starting to look like one, lol. The reason they come on our blog Chat is because the Canes have pounded their teams so many times, they have to take pot-shots at us as we're rebuilding. You can tell this is just a punk kid, because MOST adults UNDERSTAND the game, and Raq obviously does NOT, lol.

Yeah ok, try at least getting to the middle of the pack of the ACC before you talk about improvement. You guys are floundering with garbage coaches who couldnt develop talent on any team.

This is ridiculous.

Cane360 wrote on 10/22/2008 10:35:35 AM:
raw, you are so blind it's incredible. Improvement is that these kids are not giving up on games. Remember 51-13 and 48-0 last year? Is that going to happen this year? I think not.

Isn't that improvement?

And don't be so mad because we pulled the #1 RECRUITING CLASS on a 5-7 record. lol

And this year's class may be a repeat of last!

Good luck, but UF days are done. It is better for UF to have Miami down. History has proved that so I can understand your jealousy. LMAO!!!

rawpimple wrote on 10/22/2008 10:49:54 AM:
Well according to Rivals, which is the most respected recruiting source, the Gators recruiting class last year was better than the Canes. You would think the Canes pulled in this amazing class but Florida finished ahead of them.

If it werent for Northwestern the Canes wouldnt have been top 10. Its ok though because you need to have a good head coach to develop players and you dont. So you can have all the "top" recruiting classes you want, the proof is in the results and you have a LOSING record in the ACC.

They still could quit they havent really played anyone good the past two games. The next stretch of games will be very telling since they have no more Charelston Southerns and Dukes and UCFs. No more baby games.

3-8 record in the ACC
5 home losses
same record as LAST YEAR right now

Until you get rid of shannon miami wont be a threat to anyone.

Cane_cra wrote on 10/22/2008 11:01:48 AM:
hey rawpimple, LSU hasnt beat a ranked team since Auburn fell out. So stompin them at homes means very little. losing to OleMiss at home?? oh thats right they got 3 or 4 coaches from Miami after Coker scapegoated them. gaytors will lose 3-4 games by the end of the year so, you girls got your problems too.
UGA gonna whup, Auburn gonna whup, ands thats right FSU gonna whup them gaytors. And possibly a bowl loss.You girls dont wanna play Bama in the champ game either, they always got your number.

Here are the recruiting rankings from LAST YEAR--Your "monsterous year"

1 Alabama 32 3 19 8 3.72 2,836
2 Notre Dame 23 3 16 4 3.96 2,744
3 Florida 22 4 12 4 3.82 2,600
4 Ohio State 20 4 9 7 3.85 2,481
5 Miami 33 2 15 8 3.33 2,467

Notice how Florida is ahead with 22 recruits to miamis 33 and also note the average of 3.82 for Florida to 3.33 for Miami which is KEY.

You want a great true freshman playing who shut down Miamis passing attack--Janoris Jenkins. Dude is a blanket. Just slightly better though than DVD. LOL

How about Demps--true freshman with world class speed

You guys are so incredibly blind....keep living in your dream world though it will make the FALL that much harder and hurt that much more.

Raw, I knew you were going to play that card with the most SEC bias recruiting website. How about we play best of three for 2008:

ESPN: #1 THE U and #4 UF
Rivals: #3 UF and #5 THE U
Scout: #3 THE U and #12 UF

Ok, ok, we're 2-1. lol

BUT the question still remains, who's recruiting class is doing better than the others? I thought so.

Let's have a little more fun with this game. 2009 recruiting classes current standings:

ESPN: #10 THE U and #? UF (They only list to #15 and UF did not make it in - lol)
Rivals: #10 THE U and #20 UF
Scout: #17 THE U and #18 UF

Hey, we're 3-0 so far this year. Bad start for UF, eh? lol

Losing record in the ACC? The season isn't even over. We lost to UNC and FSU with a 3-3 ACC record. UF lost to Ole Miss with a 1-3 record in the SEC. Too funny, who is the 1. lol UF can't even beat a team that is 3-4 overall. That's weak

raw, UF still has losses to UGA, Vandy, FSU and USC coming up. They haven't even played a ranked team this year. LSwho will soon drop out of the polls.

But we'll hold this conversation until the end of the season because rankings today mean nothing tomorrow.

rawpimple wrote on 10/22/2008 11:43:55 AM:
All that matter is Florida--#5

Miami--Not even #5 in the ACC

Florida is just as young as Miami and is fighting for a National Title while Miami is fighting to stay out of last in the ACC.

Recruiting is based on numbers which is why Miami was #5 on Rivals. They had 33 recruits. Plus they had northwestern who Bozo could recruit because they automatically go to Miami. So all in all did Shannon really recruit well? And who cares if he can or cant because he sure as heck cant COACH.


I dont mind losing 4 after just WINNING A NATIONAL TITLE. Ill take a NATIONAL TITLE every other year.

Ever since Miami joins a conference, they havent done jack. NOTHING! And lets not exaggerate the ACC isnt the greatest conference on the planet. Do something in a conference with a conference championship game as opposed to an INDEPENDENT and then talk.

Its too bad the Canes only talking can be done in the OFFSEASON. Because during the season they are getting smacked around like little girls.

26-3

BLOW OUT

We made the Canes look like a POP WARNER offense and that includes Jacory Harris and the other Mr. Florida Marve. You couldnt even get inside the Florida red zone. You needed some ridiculously long field goal to EVEN SCORE.

Miami is actually hurting FLoridas strength of schedule. We would have doen much better with a TCU or any number of teams instead of Miami. I guess its true Floridas first two games are always JOKES, including this year.

The invention of the sports blog is great. Manny, you and Joe do a very good job covering the teams.

About the topic of this blog, tell the players to blame the head coach and not the media. He created this whole controversy. Playing two QBs the way he is doing it, is not too smart. You need to stick with one. However it is Randy's fault for making promises on the recruiting trail. This is exactly why coaches shouldnt make promises and instead should say you will compete for playing time. You look good now but again everythig is dependent on your progress in practice.
Having a QB do a few series and then switch the QBs for a few series ruins an offensive rhythm, ruins development of the true starter, can cause more penalties due to the different QB cadence and leaderships. However once you play a few better teams, you will see this.
As for the players blaming the media, blame the head coach for making promises on the recruiting trail.

C'mon guy's, I'm over at the Miami section blowing up DUUUHHHH U's blogs!! Come help me! We'll show them who rules the state of Florida!! Who's with me?

The Canes have the WORST RED ZONE DEFENSE in the ENTIRE COUNTRY.

Congrats!!!!

At least the Canes are #1 in something.

Captain Obvious---Randy Shannon

Worst Red Zone Team in the entire country and now he is giving it his attention?

Or has he been giving it his attention before and that is why he is last.

Maybe he should not give it his attention and it will improve.

This is ridiculous.

Hey Adam, this is just the last 12 hours!

COME ON GATORS, GET UP AND GO

Rut roe. Cane fool is gonna start hollering about 5 championships. Get a life cane fan. You haven't been ranked in YEARS. Those rings and a buck will get you a junior bacon cheeseburger at Wendy's. The ghost of Kehoe aint coming back. When Larry "the crypt keeper" axed your boy Kehoe, he set in motion an irreversible path of misfortune and suffering. Enjoy watching your Kosar videos.

Canefool? You'll notice not one UF fan hollering about the championship UF won about 20 months ago. Where was UM 20 months ago? Simmering in their own failure, that's where. POund dirt sore loser.

Haircat. LOL! That typo is so funny I almost don't want to change it.

-jo-

The haircat typo is golden. Mr. Bigglesworth just adds to it's comedic excellence.

Wait till Meyer drops in on Gator Clause though. He'll have YOU rolling the length of the field Goody. Tip: don't fire a dozen Krispy Kremes prior to rolling the field.

The two top words from Canes fans for the past 5 years:

NEXT YEAR

BAWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAAHHAHAHA


and when NEXT YEAR comes and its the same team we will hear

NEXT YEAR!!!!!

You guys are such jokes!!!!

Bringing up schedules from 1991, without an CHAMPIONSHIP GAME and playing a home game in the final game.

WAKE UP!!!

You guys cant all be that dense. I am sure you are all Miami Dade Community College attendees but come on.

Win the ACC with the conference championship game and then TALK but guess what?


YOU HAVE NO SHOT AT DOING THAT, this year, next year or the year after and especially not with this clown Shannon as head coach.


rawpimple wrote on 10/22/2008 01:15:19 PM:
Could you bring up last years schedule and results? How about this year?

Ahhh go back 20 years ago and relive the past because that is all you have.

Now you have Shannon who he and Coker have ruined Miami to a point of no return.

Enjoy FIU and USF passing you!!!!

rawpimple wrote on 10/22/2008 05:29:03 PM:
I am here because I live in South Florida and had to listen to the ridiculous and unwarranted HYPE throughout the offseason. I told you all before the season began that you would have thousands of EXCUSES and I am telling you AGAIN that next year you will have even MORE. Book it!

I do post about my team who just needs to win out and have Penn State have 1 loss and then guess what? Right back to the National Title game, 2 years removed from winning it. Even with all our injuries and YOUNG PLAYERS.

However listening to you all from sports radio to the newspaper, you all are so DELUSIONAL it isnt even funny.

Dont say I didnt tell you that Randy Shannon isnt in WAYYYYYYYYY over his head. You get what you pay for!

Sarasota and TXCane are really advanced Miami Dade Community College students. Today, they learned the cut and paste feature and are showing us that they know how to use it.
Too bad they are not ORIGINAL and come up with counter arguments.
They cant take the TRUTH. They cant handle the truth that the Gators are #5 and the Canes arent even #5 in the ACC.
If you are going to post why not come up with some facts, or reasons why you think the Gators are horrible and the Canes are national title contenders. Use some thought and creativity!
Typical Canes fan though. He probably traded in his Canes shirt for a Tampa Bay Devil Rays.

rawpimple wrote on 10/22/2008 05:30:54 PM:
SHannon should next put the emphasis on HIMSELF. Eventhough his redzone defense is LAST IN THE ENTIRE COUNTY, he should look at himself.

Most likely CC. How about you calm down on their blog so we don't have to be inundated by crap like this all day long. These guys are obviously uneducated, uninformed losers.

I cant post FACTS and STATS on their blogs or disagree with their warped views of their team?
I am not using profanity or doing anything out of line just bringing a dose of reality to all the ridiculous HYPE.
You would think they won the ACC this year after they just beat Duke.
I am going to continue to post on their blogs and stories and here. I live in South Florida, read the Miami Herald, love college football, and bring something to the table (albeit a different view of the Canes then the delusional folks).
I believe I can copy and paste too but I am a little more creative than that.

Looks like CokeCanes is getting high on his own supply.

Jo, I use to see owls all the time when I was at UF, and saw one late at night swoop down and grab a baby possum in the middle of the road in front of me...I thought I was drunk and seeing things, but my buddy with we saw it too.

Also, if you have a chance, look at the article on Brandon Antwine in the Gainesville Sun sports section, a really amazing story.

rawpimple wrote on 10/22/2008 06:02:13 PM:
Yeah we are terrified of that 102nd ranked offense and that Pop Warner offense that came to Gainesville and put on one of the worst offensive performances I can remember seeing. Just terrified of a team we dismantled 26-3 (with the 3 coming on some ridiculously long FG). YAWNNNNNNNNNN!

rawpimple wrote on 10/22/2008 06:04:25 PM:
Actually I am glad we dont play the Canes because they are killing our strength of schedule right now. Maybe we could add a real team like Ohio State or USC or any of the SEC teams on our schedule. Maybe we could play some of the SEC teams like 2 times or 3 times with our conference championship game.
I am tired of beating up on WEAK ACC teams like Miami and Florida State. Bring on some real competition. Maybe we could add UCF since they gave the Canes so many problems.

rawpimple wrote on 10/22/2008 06:38:57 PM:
Yeah and Heart and Tiffany have top 10 songs right now. Keep livin in the 80s.
I wasnt scared one bit with that patentic offense you were running. You couldnt even get in the RedZone forget the endzone. You had no shot. Your team coached and played scared! All this with an injured Cornelius Ingram and Percy Harvin. Imagine if even one were completely healthy. Percy scored on your D with one leg. Yeah, you might have heard of Percy Harvin, one of the most dynamic players in college football. #1 overall recruit in his class. Future NFL 1st rounder.
Yeah I was terrified with the tight 26-3 victory not including a TD that was called back--not because of holding or just one guy not all the way 1 foot forward on the line otherwise it would have been 30-3.
Keep living in the 80s!

About the Brock Berlin year, we had a garbage head coach who could only recruit. Kinda similar to what you have now except Ron Zook is a better head coach than Randy Shannon.

rawpimple wrote on 10/22/2008 06:47:27 PM:
Good for Miami. Miami can do that when they have the weak schedule that they do and not commitments to the SEC and home games. We play FSU every year who usually fields a better team than Miami anyway.
You dont want any piece of Florida this year or next. We are finally getting healthy. You were lucky you had to play us with a 50 percent Percy Harvin. Dude had like 6 plays and he is the major piece to our offense. So you had us when we were not clicking and we still made your offense look like a Pop Warner team. Honestly, your coaches coached scared and I lost all respect for them at that game. I hate coaches that coach scared and Shannon was sooooo afraid of a mistake he didnt even try to throw more than a 3 yard pass. It was UGLY. I can say when the Gators have a bad coach and I was outspoken about Zook right from the beginning. Zook was garbage and you know what, I believe Randy Shannon is even worse.


rawpimple wrote on 10/22/2008 07:13:07 PM:
How many stats do you have to see that the Gators were just as young as the Canes. People broke this down from every angle. We broke it down from starters to actually people that played in the game to the entire roster and the Gators had actually more freshmen and Sophomores than the Canes from starters to participants.

So go use that EXCUSE on another team. Maybe UCF was a little more experienced than you guys and that is why you struggled badly against them.

rawpimple wrote on 10/22/2008 07:16:47 PM:
Here it is but keep smoking that weed

Florida is a younger team than Miami actually.

"Miami started 13 seniors and juniors Saturday night. Florida started 12 sophomores. Florida is the only team in the SEC with no senior starters on defense. Miami started four seniors on defense and eight of its 22 starters were seniors."


Florida Roster-
Class Breakdown
Freshmen 43
Sophomores 39
Juniors 22
Seniors 20

Miami Roster-
Class Breakdown
Freshmen 40
Sophomores 17
Juniors 21
Seniors 22

rawpimple wrote on 10/22/2008 07:18:52 PM:
Here is the statistical breakdown but keep believing you guys are SOOOOOOOOOO young.

Florida is 63% underclassman, while Miami is 57%. Miami is 40% Freshmen, while Florida is 38%.


rawpimple wrote on 10/22/2008 07:20:33 PM:
If you need more proof how about reading this site of a gambler-nonbiased who shows that 84 teams are actually younger than Miami.

UF Combined – Total starters & participants 56

So, Miami played 33 upper classmen to Florida’s 27 and 29 underclassmen to Florida’s 29. Miami played more Freshmen than Florida but they also played significantly more Seniors that Florida. Miami should stop trying to use Youth as an excuse.

Harris threw 2 INTS in one half against DUKE! What game are you people watching????
Duke has a bunch of slow white dudes. What do you think would happen against a real team? You guys are soooooooooo delusional. It must be in the water.

rawpimple wrote on 10/21/2008 07:21:07 PM:
Yeah the Canes have a chance of winning the ACC this year or even next year like Hiliary Clinton has a chance of being preisdent Jan 20, 2009. NONE!
You guys need some lithium because you are out of this world delusional!

rawpimple wrote on 10/21/2008 08:00:17 PM:
How about these STATS

1) 5 home losses for Randy Shannon in 2 years (and the year isnt over yet)

2) 3-8 total ACC record and lets face it the ACC isnt the greatest conference

3) #102 out of 119 in Total Offense this year and these games factor in all the weak teams you played like Duke, UCF, A and M

4) 92nd out of 119 in turnover margin

5) 73rd in rushing offense

6) 93rd in passing offense

7) How about defense???
WORST TEAM IN THE COUNTRY in RED ZONE DEFENSE!

And now all of a sudden you have no more complete joke teams to play like Duke, Charleston Southern, UCF (well maybe NC STATE) and all of a sudden you are going to win the ACC or even win it next year???????

WOW!!!!!!

rawpimple wrote on 10/22/2008 05:32:27 PM:
Shows you how pathetic the ACC is when a dude plays one half and throws 2 INTs against a girl's school in Duke and he is ACC rookie of the week.

WOW!

CokeCane,

You are really obnoxious. I am a University of Florida Alum and I hope and pray that you never went there. How is it possible for a human being to spend 24hrs a day on Gator Clause. We all hate the University of Miami but you are obsessed and should be shot. Jo please do something because it is killing the blog.

Thank you

Coke,

At this frenetic pace, you're living up to your blog handle.

-jo-

John and jo, the CokeCanes that is posting all the BS is NOT the real CokeCanes...it is a guy POSING AS HIM and posting his posts from the UM blog in a way to get back at him (and us apparently).

The real CokeCanes is a Gators fan.

Funny comment though, jo.

In case you havent noticed, the Coke imposter is a Canes fan who seem to not be able to have an intelligent discussion about the teams.
I am embarrassed as a Miami fan to have fans like this but I guess every fan base has them. As part of the Canes blog and Canes community I apologize for him and hope the library closes soon so he loses internet access.

LOL! That's really bizarre. He's probably got an iPhone or BlackBerry.

This next sentence is directed at the fake CokeCanes...I was watching TV last night and I'm pretty sure I saw you in the audience at the 2008 Scream Awards.

(Sorry if that was an obscure reference few people understood. If anyone saw the Scream Awards last night on the Spike channel, you know what I'm talking about.)

-jo-

Hey Jo,

The REAL CokeCanes has posted ALL of those messages on our Miami blogs in the last 12-24 hours! This has been going on for MONTHS. It was amusing at first, but now it is beyond annoying!

From what I can gather, CokeCanes is a community college student in Miami. I will talk UM/UF football with anyone rational. The key word here is rational! Read that stuff, I did not embelish ANY of it! He wrote all of those posts today! I cut and pasted them into your blog, and made NO changes! CokeCanes is crazy! I think he should change his name to MethCanes!

I'm just "returning" his trash back to a Gator blog where it belongs! Are you encouraging him to come to our site and post that garbage? Are your other bloggers encouraging this loser to post this garbage on our site? I would like to think not! If he wants to talk about how great the Gators are, he should come on YOUR blog to do it!

Here are a few of his alias':
CokeCanes
Rawpimple
The Curse of Kehoe
Kehoe Left a Steamer on the U at Dolphin Stadium (That one was funny!)

He has convinced himself that he is contributing to a two way debate on college football! C'mon, read that garbage! Half of it is not true, the rest is just psycho babble.

I am open for suggestions on how to blog in peace. I have never been to your blog until this week. What do you recommend? Let me know what you want to do to solve this problem! He's not our problem, he's your problem!

I will not post here again, but I will forward all of his rants to Gator Clause c/o CokeCanes, so you can review them, and decide how you want to handle it!

My apologies, Sarasota 'cane

Here's another one Jo! What a great rep for UF football!

rawpimple wrote on 10/22/2008 08:51:07 PM:
The problem with the Coker argument is Randy Shannon was a coach here at the time so how does he not get blame for the recruiting? Shannon just wasnt any coach he was defensive coordinator. Unless you are trying to tell me that Shannon sat on his couch during recruiting season and didnt do anything?
The point is the Canes needed a fresh hire and someone outside of the program and instead not only did they hire within they hired a guy who isnt a head coach, he is a true coordinator not a head coach.
Hopefully it takes you and your administration 5 years to figure it out.
