Florida Gators do not watch SpongeBob SquarePants

GAINESVILLE -- Florida coach Urban Meyer seemed to take an indirect shot at the Miami Hurricanes (and a direct shot at SpongeBob SquarePants!) on Tuesday when asked a seemingly innocuous question about the difficulties players face who are either watching football from the sidelines due to an injury or the depth chart.

Spongebob_embedded_prod_affiliate_56 "The worst thing that can happen to a player is he sits home and watches TV or SpongeBob or whatever the heck those kids watch," Meyer said.

[PICTURED, A good quarterback and a cartoon.]

For those Gators fans not familiar with the link between the Miami Hurricanes and SpongeBob SquarePants, I'll catch you up to speed. After defeating the Oklahoma Sooners, Miami quarterback Jacory Harris told his team that they weren't allowed to watch ESPN. They could only watch SpongeBob. LINK! and LINK!

Coincidence or just the good-natured ribbing of a rival program? Either way, Gator Clause thanks Meyer and SpongeBob for making our job that much easier.

Haha. I think it is just coincidence. No way he knows details like that about what Jacory Harris would say in an interview...and then remember to use them in a press conference weeks later.

Funny though.

I don't know. Meyer is a pretty funny guy, I think.




Urban Meyer is great. One of the best college football coaches in the country (behind Saban and Pete Carroll) and he is arrogant as heck. AWESOME!

Jacory Harris is arrogant but has no reason to be with his 10 TD 7 INT ratio. Plus, the dude fumbles more than Sammie Smith at the goaline.

Too bad the Dolphins got rid of Saban. Saban comes in and immediately turns the program around from the overrated Shula days. Miami makes excuses every year for their scrub head coach. You get what you pay for.

Why is Jacory throwing up the diamond instead of the U? Is Jay-Z in his pocket?

I think he is throwing up a female anatomy sign for what he has underneath that cup

Sponge Bob is a good quaterback?

Guys stop making fun of our QB. He is a little slow and didnt graduate from the best high school in the country. plus he turns the ball over too much. he likes pink and sponge bob.

what am i saying. he is sorry. wish we had marve back.

That's "The shocka" he's throwing up.

Sponge Bob is a good quarterback?

Dude did U used to write for Seinfeld? Your schtick is over the top "fake" Sarasota! C'mon, you have a ghost writer, don't U?????? There's NO WAY your thinking up that reply on the fly! If you are, then kudo's! We can only walk in your comedy shadow!

I have to disagree about Marve though! The kid was a time bomb! I"m not sure why Randy didn't let Marve transfer to UF, he would have been our best weapon!

Anyway gotta go, but you take care!

Go 'canes!

Hey "D" Bag!

The most important question you should be asking yourself is this: Why does SpongeBob wear a tie?


Spongebob U....all wet

Sponge Bob just arrived at the stadium and Mister Crab requires that of all his players.

You're on a roll CC.

The ceremonial reef walk.

Jacory's hands are estimating the size of the hole that Virignia Tech left in his rear end.

Jacory is showing Hankerson how to catch a pass.

Oh, man. Those are funny. Not nice, but very funny.


I doubt he actually was taking a shot at UM. We're not on his schedule so I don't think he even worries about us. Outside of trying to beat us to recruits. Even if he was taking a shot it was subtle and nothing offensive. BTW Hankerson is doing a lot better catching the ball. What the hell is a "Shocka"?

urban meyer has no time for sponge bob. he too busy making pizza commercials. isnt he the papa john guy?

what the heck is that about? He had no reason to take a shot at miami. thats not funny at all. that really grinds my gears. They don't even play miami. words cannot express how much i hate the gators. You guys really cant deal with success can you. You gotta hate on everybody else's success to validate yourselves. Especially since Harris leads tebow in TDs and Yards, and this was against MUCH better competition than what tebow played. honestly, im dissappointed. I didnt think the gators would stoop THIS low.
