Shakespeare on the Florida Gators

GAINESVILLE -- With today being the official/unofficial birthday of William Shakespeare and all, we thought we'd have a little fun on the blog...

SHAKESPEARE ON THE FLORIDA GATORS
"Be not afraid of greatness: some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon 'em."
-Malvolio, Twelfth Night Act 2, scene 5, 156-159

ON PERCY HARVIN
The quality of "Percy" is not strain'd,
It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven
Upon the place beneath. It is twice blest:
It blesseth him that gives and him that "tokes."
-Portia, The Merchant of Venice Act 4, scene 1, 180-187

ON MAJOR WRIGHT
A hit, a very palpable hit.
-Osric, Hamlet Act 5, scene 2, 282

ON JEFF DEMPS
Swift as a shadow, short as any dream,
Brief as the lightning in the collied night ...
And ere a man hath power to say "Behold!" ...
So quick bright things come to confusion.
-Lysander, A Midsummer Night's Dream Act 1, scene 1, 141-149

ON LANE KIFFIN
To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty "face" from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
"Lane's" but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.
-Macbeth, Macbeth Act 5, scene 5, 19-28

SHAKESPEARE ON FOOTBALL
If "football" be the food of love, play on,
Give me excess of it...
-Duke Orsino, Twelfth Night Act 1, scene 1, 1-3

ON URBAN MEYER
A "recruit," a "recruit!" My kingdom for a "recruit!"
King Richard, Richard The Third Act 5, scene 4, 7-10

ON AHMAD BLACK
"I am constant as the northern star,
Of whose true-fix'd and resting quality
There is no fellow in the firmament."
-Caeser, Julius Caesar Act 3, scene 1, 60-62

ON NICK CALATHES
How poor are they that have "no" patience!
-Iago, Othello Act 2, scene 3, 376

ON BRANDON SPIKES
Something wicked this way comes.
-2nd Witch, Macbeth Act 4, scene 1, 44-49

ON MIAMI AND FLORIDA STATE
A plague a' both your houses.
-Mercutio, Romeo and Juliet Act 3, scene 1, 90-92

ON TIM TEBOW
True nobility is exempt from fear:
More can I bear than you dare execute.
Earl of Suffolk, King Henry the Sixth, Part II Act 4, scene 1, 2285-2286

On developing players:

If you can look into the seeds of time, and say which grain will grow and which will not, speak then unto me.

On going undefeated in 2009:

“'Tis best to weigh The enemy more mighty than he seems”

On Tim Tebow:

Now, God be praised, that to believing souls gives light in darkness, comfort in despair.

On delusional UM fans:

O, what a goodly outside falsehood hath!

(the Kiffin quotes win)


I like the quote on developing players. Very nice. Ah, the quotable Shakespeare. Brevity is the soul of wit.

Miami and the Glory Years: Parting is such sweet sorrow.

On Lane Kiffin: The game is up. Off with his head!!

One more on Miami: True it is that we have seen better days.

Adam Schecter of the NFL network just predicted Percy will go in the first round.

He maintained that WR's are too valuable for some team not to look beyond his downside.

Someone will get a very good deal late in the first round

Ooops.....ScheFter.

And apparently he is no longer with the NFL network and will work with TWWL.

BOOOOOOO

Harvin met with Brad Childress of the Vikes today. They pick 22 overall.

Jo, no trip to D.C.?

Like the guy in Gainesville, we have a permanent reporter in Washington who is sending me stuff. Will have it up shortly.

No, I'm the Bard of Gainesville.
