GAINESVILLE -- Florida coach Urban Meyer said on Sunday that Georgia's now-famous end zone celebration last season against the Gators will not factor into the motivation of Saturday's game.

"It's old news and it has no bearing on this year's game," Meyer said. "Two teams battling for the SEC East. It has no bearing on it whatsoever."

Is Meyer losing his grip on reality? Should team physicians examine his brain? If Meyer believes that UGA's end zone celebration will have "no bearing" on Saturday's game and its preparation, then perhaps ... OK, I think everyone gets the point. This is all bologna.

Clearly, what Meyer says publicly and what he tells his team are two different things entirely. Florida has been thinking about UGA's end zone celebration for nearly an entire year. Before the season even started, the Gators had a large photo of "Gator Stomp" on their motivational bulletin board in the team weight room.

MEYER'S REVENGE
The question I have is this: Is it a good idea for Meyer to ignore last season's full-team end-zone celebration by the Bulldogs during the first quarter of their 42-30 win? In ignoring the obvious, is Meyer actually making a bigger deal out of the end-zone celebration than what it's worth? Is Meyer acting cowardly or smartly? (Yes, I'm fully aware Meyer is no coward.)

After all, Meyer did say this about "Gator Stomp" in his biography, Urban's Way, released this season: "That wasn't right. It was a bad deal. And it will forever be in the mind of Urban Meyer and in the mind of our football team. So we'll handle it. And it's going to be a big deal."

And that's what Meyer really thinks.

Poor Jacory. Dude is going to have to sit out a year and transfer or be relegated to mop up duty when the Canes are getting blown out or maybe get a series. Your bad decision dude! Live with it!

Get used to the blue field in Boise Miami fans. The MPC Computers Bowl is where you belong.

Canes, Stick with the present, strive for the future, and get over the past.

SEC all day, every day until something new actually happens.

Lets do it CANES, BIG WIN TODAY

Manny,

I have my money on the Canes today

BIG GAME TODAY CANES!!!

Manny,

I have my money on the Canes today. I think they'll be 2-2 in the ACC after today which will be a great boost to their psyche.

Another red zone TD by the defense. This is a very poor tackling teams and has been for several years now. Nobody wraps up and drive the ball carrier back. everybody tacckles up high. It's going to be a long day if we don't stop the run.

Where the heck is ESPNU? And why isn't this game being televised locally? Granted, the Canes aren't that great this year, but then again, there are tons of games on that have stinky teams too. What gives?

jo, Urban's just saying that because the last thing he wants to do is let Georgia and Richt think they are still in the Gators' heads. If they say that they're still thinking about it, Georgia already has a leg up going into the game.

Of course they remember it, of course they want to get back at them for it. But they're going to do it on the field by pummeling them, not with words or some retaliation celebration.

You're being a little over-dramatic asking if he's "lost his grip on reality." He's a smart coach and knows how to get his players up for a game. He knows they listen to and read the press conferences. Everything he said is part of the game plan. This is not 2007, it's 2008 and it's time to win in Jacksonville.

Exactly, Adam. When it's Meyer, it's always about the mind games. Here's the thing: Richt "out-Meyered" Urban Meyer last season. That really got under Meyer's skin. (And obviously the whole "lost grip on reality" nonsense was tongue and cheek. I thought I made that clear by writing it was bologna.)

Great Win Canes ... 6 more games to go

Posted by: GATOR | October 26, 2008 at 02:58 AM

I have changed my mind. This Canes team is garbage.
We are overblowing a team in Wake who is just downright pathetic. I mean Ole Miss went into Wake and just about beat them. It took a long field goal as time expired to beat Ole Miss at home.
Now we play the most boring football game against a beat down team who has basically quit like we did last year, and we do it at our house.
We are just lucky our schedule is so weak and we played the ranked opponents already who we lost to.
Anyway, a win is a win but this team is a long way away.

Guys I think we might be able to make a bowl this year. This is turning out to be a miracle year! I am so excited! Any of you guys want to travel to the bowl game with me? It would be fun! I'll bring my Sebastian hat and we could grill hot dogs. Mmmmm hot dogs. Mmmmmm. Hot dogs...Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Did I tell you we could have hot dogs? Mmmmmmm. Sounds good right?
Who do you think we will play? I am thinking we would play a Big 10 team like maybe Purdue. It would be a good game. Cant wait!

Go CANES! 3 game winning streak!

You guys are so funny. The hype is getting to the preseason HIGH. Well, it will make the CRASH that much more fun for the rest of us.
You guys beat 3 unranked teams, and a Wake team that has basically quit, and you play a boring game with 3 first half total points and you think you are good and going to win the ACC?

Like I told the Gayturd fans wins and losses dont matter it is HOW YOU PLAY and the Canes look like the garabge team they are. They look brutal! Then what happened the Gators lost to Ole Miss, an Ole Miss team that was beating Wake AT wake with 30 seconds left to play.

Here is a predicition eventhough you dont have a ranked team on your schedule the rest of the way, you will lose AT LEAST 2 more games. AT LEAST! BOOK IT!

Miami has the worst weight room in the ACC. The fact you are not seeing it makes me wonder whether you are a journalist or just another starry-eyed fan.

Sarasota,
I don't think anyone is claiming Miami to be good just yet. And of course they are at best mediocre but its nice to get a win against a Sr. laden well coached team. And it actually looks there is some improvement which is all I was hoping to see from the very young Canes team this season.
And you keep blasting a team for "barely" beating Ole Miss. Didn't Ole Miss just recently hand the mighty Gators their only loss on the season? Lesson learning is winning them all isn't easy.

I posted as Sarasota, and someone answered!! He He, Miami TOOLS!

Yahhhhoooo! We have a chance at having a chance of playing for a chance to obtain a winning regular season record for the first time in three years.

1 ACC Team now ranked in the Top 25

Your game is getting old...stop flooding jo's blog with your crap.

You know Jo, I hate Miami as much as the next guy, but when you have Gator fans like CokeCane and Canesrule popping up on every Miami blog in the South, it ruins the blogging experience for all of us! These so called "fans" have probably never been to the UF campus! What a joke!

Watching this Dolphins game I dont know what offense is worse:

The Canes offense or the Dolphins offense.

Canes, Stick with the present, strive for the future, and get over the past.

SEC all day, every day until something new actually happens.

Adam,

Come help me flood the Miami blog with nonsense! It's awesome! They are SOOO upset!

???????????? this aint no damn sarasota cane

The Canes are going to make a BOWL GAME THIS YEAR!!!!
I am soooooo pumped up!
Do you guys think we will be going to Idaho this year? That would be swell! We had such fun in Idaho two years ago.
Maybe we could play Navy.

The Canes vs Navy now that would be a good game

I dont understand though how we went from ESPNU to not being televised at all next week after a BIGGGGG win? Now we have to fork over Pay Per View money to watch this team?

Wake's offense is currently ranked 100 out of 119

The Canes offensive powerhouse is ranked 99 out of 119

Maybe your bowl game will be televised since none of your regular season games are.

Guys come on, I hardly ever say anything bad about the Canes. This is really me. Its Sarasota'cane. Come on guys. Believe me.

I know the Canes aren't great but I rarely say anything bad. I only want positive energy on the Canes blogs.

AZCane, I will take you up on the hot dog thing. It sounds really good. MMMMMMM Hot dogs and Canes football! Sounds realllllly good.

Sarasota,

you are such a joke. Do all canes fans a favor and quit posting on here.

Just ask serious questions or talk about us winning the ACC this year and the National Title next year.

We can take Penn State. Did you see them last night? They arent that good. They are big and slow.

We can have Marve run all over them. Then we can bring in Jacory, mess up the offensive rhythm, and have him take a sack followed by a pick.

We are rolling!!!

Here are the WORST offenses in the COUNTRY in TOTAL OFFENSE...Notice Miami moved up 3 spots after that impressive under 300 yard performance.

6 ACC Teams down here that is pretty impressive. The ACC is the Anti-Big 12 and Anti-SEC. They cant play offense or defense.

97 Virginia---ACC Team
98 Duke-------ACC Team (one of Miamis wins)
99 Miami (Fla.)---ACC Team
100 Wake Forest---ACC Team (one of Miamis wins and barely beat)
101 Colorado
102 UCLA
103 San Jose St.
104 Mississippi St.
105 San Diego St.
106 Army
107 North Carolina St.---ACC Team
108 Washington
109 Auburn
110 Syracuse
111 Michigan
112 Tennessee
113 Virginia Tech----ACC Team
114 Florida Int'l
115 Vanderbilt
115 Washington St.
117 Wyoming
118 Temple
119 UCF-------Team Miami barely beat...WORST in the country!


Worst Team in the Country in RED ZONE Defense is who?

You guess it, your National Chmapion MIAMI HURRICANES!

113 Wake Forest 7 17 16 87 6 4 6 .94 (team Miami just barely beat)
114 LSU 7 20 19 105 8 4 7 .95
114 Pittsburgh 7 19 18 110 10 5 3 .95
116 Syracuse 7 26 25 164 10 12 3 .96
116 Colorado 8 24 23 141 12 6 5 .96
118 La.-Lafayette 7 25 25 148 14 5 6 1.00
118 Miami (Fla.) 8 22 22 141 10 9 3 1.00


6 ACC Teams down here that is pretty impressive. The ACC is the Anti-Big 12 and Anti-SEC. They cant play offense or defense.

we have lost 5 straight acc home games!!!!!!

wow

As much as I'd like to, I will not participate in these shenanigans. I'd rather keep this blog clear for Florida fans and intelligent, rational discussion.

These Canes guys can hate on us all they want, but posting 50 posts from another blog is just ridiculous and is ruining the good work that Jo is doing here. Guy is working his arse off to provide good stories and good discussion, and the second half of that is being trumped for no reason.

That's my piece. Thanks.

The funny thing is I went back to look at the Miami blog and this CokeCanes hasn't posted in awhile. He is taking any person that says anything against Miami, and assuming this CrackCane guy is doing it. Unless he has inside information and works for the Herald and has access to IP numbers I don't know how he would know that.

Just shows you the type of intelligence the typical Cane fan has.

Yeah Todd, it really doesn't matter though. It's just juvenile and the only way he can satisfy his rage of having a sub-standard football team right now.

All that matters is who WINS IT ALL. Not anything else and who won the past two years????

LSU
Florida

2 SEC TEAMS!!!!

Look at the top 8 of the BCS this year RIGHT NOW

3 of 8 are SEC TEAMS!!!!

How about ACC teams in the top 8????

ZERO!!!!

So go brag about that when the SEC wins another National title!

And until the Canes can even SHOW UP to the ACC title game, much less WIN IT, all you pompous Canes fans should just run to the corner and keep your mouths CLOSED!

We even improved from the 102nd ranked offense in the country to the 99th. Guess who is 100th--WAKE. Wow we are really turning a corner. National Champions next year!!!!

We gotta beat Virginia like 150-0, then proceed to urinate on every single player and fan for it to be redemption for last year. I mean we lost 48-0 in the last game ever at the Orange Bowl. They just humiliated us.

99th in total offense in the COUNTRY.

Miami is really improving.....PUFFFFFFFFF PUFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF

BUM as a head coach and a scrub offensive line and scrub secondary. Brandon Harris and Demarcus VanDyke couldnt cover Greg Camarillo with a broken leg.

PrestonParker wrote on 10/26/2008 04:50:39 PM:
13 second half points!!!! AWESOME!!!! This team is really clicking!!!!

We are going to win the ACC this year...SNIFFFFFFFFFFFF SNIFFFFFFFFFFFF

Why are Cane's fans on this blog anyway. We should be talking about dem GATORS baby!!!
Here's the scenario: Gators beat down the Dawgs, head to the SEC championship game where they also beat down BAMA. Suddenly they vault to the # 2 or #3 spot in the BCS and sit tight to see who they play for all the marbles...
