Florida Gators ditch spread-option in favor of innovative Thundercat Offense

GAINESVILLE -- We're beginning the seventh week of the regular season. What did we learn during the first six weeks?

1. As expected, Florida's defense is pretty good.

The Gators are ranked No.1 nationally in four major defensive categories: scoring (6.4 points per game), total defense (202.60 yards per game), passing defense (115.2 ypg) and pass-efficiency defense (78.32 opponents' quarterback rating). Florida has only allowed two offensive touchdowns in five games.

Defensive MVP through the first five games: Senior weak-side linebacker Ryan Stamper. Stamper is second on the team with 30 tackles. We're giving him the nod over fellow linebacker Brandon Spikes (32 tackles) based on consistency.

Always-great-in-the-clutch Award: Junior strong safety Ahmad Black. Black is third on the team with 27 tackles but first (by my count) when it comes to key stops on third down. This guy is money.

2. Urban Meyer doesn't mind winning ugly.

Give Florida coach Urban Meyer credit for sticking with his No.1 philosophy: Always play to your team's strength. UF's team strengths this season are defense and Tim Tebow. For Meyer, that apparently means getting just enough points to win and then playing conservatively and letting the defense take over. Oh, that Urban Meyer, just look at him turn into such a wise old coach right before our eyes.

3. OK, so we've figured out Florida's offense.

It's basically four running backs, a hybrid tight end and some receivers who know how to block. You know how some teams run the Wildcat every once in awhile? Not at Florida. At Florida, that's the offense. Just one big Wildcat. In fact, it's bigger and better than the Wildcat. It's more like the Thundercat Offense ... Wait, that's it! Henceforth, this blog will no longer refer to UF's offense as the spread-option offense. From now on, it's the Thundercat Offense.  Thundercats, hooooo!

Did anyone watch the NFL masterpiece that was Dolphins 31, Jets 27? After watching that game, no one can tell me with a straight face that Tebow cannot play quarterback in the NFL. The Dolphins' offense is made for a guy like Tim Tebow. Trade Pat White. Draft Tebow. Bring the Thundercat Offense to the NFL!

Lion-o 4. Timmy is the ULTIMATE team player.

Concussion? Who cares. What's that coach? You want me to run the ball more than I throw it? OK, no problem. Tebow is ranked 10th in the SEC in passing six weeks (five games for UF) into his senior season, a senior season that was supposed to include his development as a potential NFL quarterback. Instead, Tebow is ranked 10th in the league in rushing with 309 yards on 72 attempts. (Tebow has had 84 passing attempts. So, technically, he hasn't really ran the ball more than he has thrown it. But it's close.)

[PICTURED: Tim Tebow, leader of the Thundercats!]

5. "Big Game" Brandon Spikes.

Is it just me or does Spikes only show up for big games? Spikes had 11 tackles, 2.5 sacks and a forced fumble against LSU. Where you been hiding, Big Game? In Spikes' defense, he played the first four games of the season in pain (inflamed tendonitis of the Achilles) but looked good in Baton Rouge, La. Hopefully Spikes' heel will be healthy for the stretch run. Might just want to sit him until the Bama game.

6. Should Emmanuel Moody have gone to North Carolina?

OK, I'll be the first to write it. Emmanuel Moody is the best running back in the country who hardly ever plays. This guy needs more carries. Did Moody make a mistake in transferring to UF instead of UNC? It's too early to write that (Moody still has one more year to watch Jeff Demps and Chris Rainey steal his carries before that's official) but it did seem kind of silly against LSU when little ol' Demps and Rainey kept getting smothered on runs up the gut with Moody watching from the sideline.

7. Special teams not so special.

With a defense like the one Florida has, you'd think UF's punt block/punt return team would have made more of a difference by now? Brandon James is averaging 1.6 yards a punt (longest return six yards) and UF has only blocked one kick. I'm pretty sure these numbers will improve. If Florida is going to remain conservative on offense all season, special teams is a great place to find some points. Maybe James should focus on offense and Chris Rainey should return punts? Just a thought.

8. Told you so.

Time to be a jerk ... Gator Clause predicted this preseason that UF's tight end would be the team's leading receiver. Well, five games into the season and Aaron Hernandez leads UF with 21 receptions for 268 yards and two touchdowns. Told you.

9. John Brantley tisk, tisk.

Why are people writing about how John Brantley is being a good team player? Dude, Brantley sits the bench behind one of the greatest college football players of all time. Come on.

10. It's a pick party!

Major Wright, two interceptions. Janoris Jenkins, two interceptions. Joe Haden, two interceptions and looking fly. Ahmad Black, one interception. Need we say more.

But can moody dart through a pinhole, make an electric cut and snap off 25 yards ala Demps? And even if D&R are getting smothered on runs between the tackles, it keeps the defense honest and sets up the Thundercat.

Pre-season I envisioned a spread attack that included big contributions from DT, Cooper, Nelson, Hernandez, Moore and even Debose or Hammond Jr. Based mostly on injuries this hasn't come to fruition and defenses have been able to help out on stopping the run. But the run has still been very effective.

I wanted to see Moody pound the ball for no other reason than to take pressure of of Tim. And even though Moody was effective at LSU, I was hoping that Urban would fully unleash him in that game. It seems that Urban likes the good team blocking combined with break-away speed offered by the other guys in favor of Moody pounding it.

The offense is definitely relying on different strengths than what we all hoped to see. The wins haven't been particularly pretty but I haven't felt like UT or LSU games were ever in doubt. Credit Meyer , as mentioned above, for having the smarts to play a much better chess game than the opponents. I see others criticizing the play calling. I'm not on board with that. If Deonte ever wakes up we could see the play calling shift again.

The Gators D is great, good enough to carry them until the SEC game against Bama but not good enough win.

Tebow and the Fins? The difference is the Fins don't use a QB to run the ball, the use 230 pound running backs that run 4 '5 40's. Tebow is big and slow, he would not be able to do the things Ronnie and Ricky do. And with his slow release and weak arm he would not be a threat in the passing game, another Pennington just bigger.

Would love to see the Fins draft Spike!

Thundercat is a mighty fine name, because for all the talk about how this is the fastest team in America ... it might be the toughest.

I agree Moody needs to play more. I can't figure out why this guy isn't on the field. It seems like he gets 5 yards on his worst carries. This guy can be a work horse given the chance.I will be in Gainesville this weekend. I will ask Meyer about Moody at the Gator walk.
That reverse with James that got stopped should have gone to someone else. James is elusive but he doesn't have the first step a Rainey or Demps have. I personally don't like seeing James on offense.
At some point this season we need to start throwing deep balls from our side of the field just to stretch the defense.
Our defense has been great. We will get tested this weekend against Arkansas. But I love to see Major get some hits in.
I wanted to see Brantley play against LSU. Its been a long time since we have seen passing. But it's understandable that no one has stopped our run so why take risks with our lockdown defense.If it ain't broken why fix it.
Sorry my post was all over the place.

The Gators D is great, good enough to carry them until the SEC game against Bama but not good enough win. -MTX

Get lost with that nonsense dude. We heard that exact same thing ALL LAST YEAR. Florida's D is dominating teams. In last years SEC Championship game the prediction was that Florida wasn't as physical at 'Bama. Guess what? The Gators flat out out physical'd 'Bama and controlled the fourth quarter.

It's easy for you to throw out your "not good enough" comment and not back it up one iota. The Gators KILLED 'Bama in the fourth last year and are better this year. Bring some support to your empty nonsense. Guess you didn't see 'Bama playing tiddlywinks in their field goal festival with Mississippi Saturday?

Gators D isn't good enough to win? You look incredibly dumb throwing that out.

My point exactly, Ndongo. Nice post.

-jo-

Wow Tbone, I didn't know Urban answered questions during Gator Walk.

"I agree Moody needs to play more. I can't figure out why this guy isn't on the field. It seems like he gets 5 yards on his worst carries"

from above:
" It seems that Urban likes the good team blocking combined with break-away speed offered by the other guys(namely Demps) in favor of Moody pounding it. "

Moody drags guys an extra 5 yards. Demps makes em WHIFF for an extra 10 yards.

Thundercat??

I thought UF's offense was called the Bonzai????

Huh, who knew????

Anyway there is something of far greater importance this AM!!!!!

A MUST READ FOR ALL UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA RECRUIT'S AND THEIR PARENT'S!!

THIS IS SERIOUS!! YOUR KID'S LIFE COULD DEPEND ON IT!

http://www.cbssports.com/columns/story/12347788

Morning "D" Bag!

Bring some support to your empty nonsense.

Drink to much Coffe this morning Alan? This is a message board and that is my opinion. I did pick Florida over Bama last year, but that Florida team had great WR who opened it up. This team doesn't have the WR's and I think it will be exposed if and when you play Bama.

Here's BACK IT UP for you Alan.

Did you see the holding call by the Gator WR on your only TD, it was a highlight on ESPN Sports Center? If not for that hold, Florida wouldn't have scored a TD.

I didn't ask you not to not have an opinion. An opinion is cool.

So a holding call on UF's offense backs up that their defense isn't good enough. Totally weak. But I knew you wouldn't be able to back up that nonsense you threw out.

Care to try again?

Haven't and won't be posting on here much because I am too busy with my new site - http://www.onlygators.com - but I did want to argue two points with you, jo.

8) "Predicting" Hernandez would be the leading receiver on this team was no leap. He was No. 3 last year and we lost our top two. Tebow trusts him more than anyone else. You were 100% right - but many people predicted that.


6. "(Moody still has one more year to watch Jeff Demps and Chris Rainey steal his carries before that's official) but it did seem kind of silly against LSU when little ol' Demps and Rainey kept getting smothered on runs up the gut with Moody watching from the sideline."

You have to run it up the gut with them to keep the defense honest for when you want them to run outside. Just like with any other running back. Additionally, Rainey only had four carries on the night - not like he was a ball hawk. Sure, we would have been better served with Moody getting them. Nevertheless, "little ol' Demps" averaged 5.4 YPC on the night and is averaging something sick on the season.

Good post overall, jo. Just had to contend with those two points. Take care everyone.

Hey Sarasota? For a guy that claims he likes Florida you sure keep reposting a ridiculously slanted article that IGNORES that a TEAM of doctors refute the entire rant. Doyel is a hack like you. You should work at a merry go round with your absurd spinning .

Your kids life could depend on it?

Do us all a favor and stop with the "I like Florida when they aren't playing the canes" NONSENSE.

Sarasota Cane take your garabage somewhere else. You are an idiot. Tebow was cleared by doctors to play not by Meyer. The University wouldn't let Meyer make a medical call. He was cleared medically by a group of the best doctors. Do you think UF is going to leave this up to the coach and expose themselves legally? Go back to the koolaid blog.

Jo the Dolphin's game was awesome!

Tebow would be looking for the Chad Henne role, not the Ronnie Brown or Pat White role, and he's not ready to lead an NFL team from behind center.

Tebow throws one of the worst balls from the pocket of all the top starting QB's! It's just the way it is! Meyer brought in a QB coach to try to change Tebow's stance and mechanics and it did not work. CBS did a comparison from last year to this year and there was virtualy no change at all in the way he delives the ball.

What's wrong with Tebow being the next Tony Gonzalez? The tight end position has become such an integral part of NFL offenses. I agree that Tebow could be used in certain spread formations, but that would limit his playing time. I think Pat White was only in on one or two plays last night. Tebow could be on the field for EVERY play as a tight end!

Anyway as a life long 'phins fan, I don't want him, nor do the Dolphin's need him.

Go 'canes!

MTX Cane please go back to the koolaid blog also. You are just a hater. Go watch old film of your 4 1/2 national championships and pat yourself on the shoulder.

Alan M, Urban doesn't officially answer questions on the walk but if you are drunk enough you can scream out your questions and hope he answers them.

Moody is a power runner with speed. He grinds out 5 yards when Rainey and Demps get stopped. Don't get me wrong Rainey and Demps can go the house at any time and they need to get their touches but Moody needs to get 10-15 touches a game. The guy is a monster.We will need him against Bama.

I know this might sound like blasphemy for some of you, but Tim Tebow is a better football player than Ronnie Brown. Anything Ronnie Brown can do well, Tebow can do better.

-jo-

Don't read that stupid blog by Doyel at CBS. He had nothing new or constructive to say. He re-hashed all the generic worst-case scenarios that everyone is keenly aware of now, yet did not have the balls to propose a real solution.

I like the physical, grind-it-out play the Gators have endeavored on of late. That 'Bama team could've won the SEC Champ game last year -- we won because we broke their psyche. Through 3 1/2 qtrs they slugged harder then they had all season and it still wasn't enough to beat Meyer & Co. Hopefully we make it there again for another slugfest. Regarding Moody, I think he is still proving to the coaches that he won't put the ball on the ground. That's been the knock on him thus far. We only see him on Saturdays not during the week -- he's got to hold on to the ball from Saturday to Saturday.

Hey Sarasota? For a guy that claims he likes Florida you sure keep reposting a ridiculously slanted article that IGNORES that a TEAM of doctors refute the entire rant. Doyel is a hack like you. You should work at a merry go round with your absurd spinning .

Your kids life could depend on it?

Do us all a favor and stop with the "I like Florida when they aren't playing the canes" NONSENSE.

I agree Alan! That "fake" Sarasota 'cane should change his name to Sarasota 'Gator! That dude is all up Meyer's "chute"!

Of course you and I hate each other for good reason! There's no love lost for you and I when our rival teams win or lose!

That "fakey" Sarasota should just get off the fence! What a TOOL! I'll bet it's really "D" Bag in drag!!! Such a troublemaker! Jeez!

Go 'canes!

Hey "D" Bag!!!!!!!!

I know this might sound like blasphemy for some of you, but Tim Tebow is a better football player than Ronnie Brown. Anything Ronnie Brown can do well, Tebow can do better.

-jo-

Posted by: Goody | October 13, 2009 at 10:31 AM

I agree Jo, but Ronnie Brown is not a QB. And didn't you cringe when Ronnie looked like he was going to throw the ball?

Is it beneath Tebow to play a position other than QB in the NFL? You cannot play a full season under center the way Tebow plays in college. McNabb is proof of that, he just missed 3 weeks of playing time.

A dual-threat starting NFL QB today has to be a pocket passer 1st, and an option QB a distant 2nd. The defenses are too physical at the next level.

Go 'canes!

Drink too much coffee this morning? -MTX

How many times have we seen Sarasota say the exact same thing?

"THIS IS SERIOUS!! YOUR KID'S LIFE COULD DEPEND ON IT!"

That is the weakest most jealous crap you have ever concocted. To try to portray Urban as not caring is absurd like you. That's certainly not the comments of a guy who purports to support the Gators. You are small. Shannon is getting schooled by Urban over the long haul in recruiting. UM is looking nothing short of meh for 2010. How are the N.W. Bulls this year?

I love how Adam S. has gotten all high and mighty for us over here on Gator Clause. Thanks for stopping by and spamming the blog, Adam S. Hope all is well. Don't be a stranger. Thanks for all the support!

-jo-

"Of course you and I hate each other for good reason! There's no love lost for you and I when our rival teams win or lose!" -Sarasota

Don't flatter yourself clown. I don't drum up hate for delusional idiots. Just pity and comedy. But it's pretty obvious where you come from with that comment. Hate isn't in my vocabulary you bumbling idiot.

When our rivals win or lose???? What about your comments that you like the Gators when they aren't playing the canes? Up your Zanax fella. You're all over the road. Stick with MTX today. You're looking more foolish by the second with the Sarasota "hate" fest.

Are you going to post the "your kids life could depend on it" link tomorrow too? Please post it everyday for a month so that the hack named Doyel can be further exposed. It actually exposes two clowns.

Nobody really cares about your opinion on Tebow as you have shown yourself over and over to be nothing but an idiot.

I love how Adam S. has gotten all high and mighty for us over here on Gator Clause. Thanks for stopping by and spamming the blog, Adam S. Hope all is well. Don't be a stranger. Thanks for all the support!

-jo-

LOL... Good thing you didn't make a typo. I love me some Goody. Adam is doing a great job but he gots big shoes to fill Jo. Dude probably doesn't even own a cat. Matzo Ball....RESPECT !

More seriously Jo, It's driving me crazy trying to come up with the name of the silent coach/mentor guy from Hawaii who Urban has said plays a huge role in his life. I believe he was on staff at Utah. I know he's still around because I saw him standing next to the coaches during a telecast. ( Is "telecast" still in play?) Google is failing me on this. I threw out the question over at snooty nose OGGOA and got a prompt "WTF?" lol. Blog wars is on. Surely one of you incredibly informed mofo's can pony up the guys name. JO?????

Mr. Miyagi?

How are the N.W. Bulls this year?

Posted by: Alan M. | October 13, 2009 at 10:43 AM

The Bull's are a little light this year so Shannon and Co. are heading up to Jacksonville Rayne this year Alan! There are 2 4 star DT's that want to play for The U, remember?? One of them was thrown out of Friday Night Liht's, so the other kid decided he didn't ant any part of UF either! Go figure!

Hey have you heard of a 4 star receiver named Dunkley out of Pahokee?? I bet you have, he's one of UF's top receiver recruits for 2010. Looks like he's starting to drink the UM kool-aid! Funny thing about him is UM really doesn't "need" him like UF, but he thinks he can compete, so he's not afraid to give UM a looksie!

How about top running back recruit Clement's?? Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!! (He's silent!))

Stars are great Alan, but needs are more important! Do you think Meyer brought in Moody simply so USC wouldn't have him??? Hmmmmmmm... Colleges used to do that A LOT back in the day!

I hate that "fake" Sarasota 'cane ('Gator) as much as you do Alan! Why would a guy who supports the 'Gators, have the hyphenated word 'cane in their name??? Oh well, free country I guess!! I bet you're thinking the same thing I am, IT'S "D" BAG!!! "D" Bag is a solid Gator fan! Dare I say that's why the name "D" Bag is so appropriate for him!

Go 'canes!

Hey "D" Bag!

Hater?

I'm a hater because I voiced my opinion about your beloved Gators?? Wow, you guys are tough.

I said Florida has the best D in the country, that's an opionion. Why don't you all argue that point? Maybe you think Bama is better?

I think Florida will go undefeated until the Bama game, that's an opionion. I think Florida has a great team, but I think Bama is better.

Who do you think is better, Florida or Miami?
I'm sure you will pick Florida, does that mean your a hater? Not in the least.

Hel*, I think Tebow is the greatest college QB of all time but unlike Jo, I don't think he has a chance at starting as a QB in the NFL nor do I think he compares with Ronnie Brown. Ronnie was the 2nd overall pick in the NFL, he's 6 '1 230 lbs and runs a 4.5. He's a RB playing RB, not a QB palying RB.

Read the comments you all wrote, looks like your attacking Randy Shannon and the Canes.

Sorry Sarasota, I can't drum up any hate for the guy that posts fake sarasota just as, unlike yourself, I don't have any hate for you. In case you haven't noticed, the guy mocks you. He does that because you drag absurd nonsense in here day after day. All the while your favorite team, a much improved team, has holes all over it. Constantly berating the unbeaten defending champions while your team is crawling out of the cellar earns you daily mockings. You don't grasp that. It would be one thing if you made some actual sense and were debatable. But you post, "your kids life could depend on it" horsekrap everyday. I don't see that link as hating, I see it as deeply jealous. Whatever it is, it's straight nonsense. A TEAM of doctors cleared TT but you can't see that through your cane glasses. So you post a link that exposes the clown author and the clown commenter. Good job buddy.


This says it all about you:
"A MUST READ FOR ALL UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA RECRUIT'S AND THEIR PARENT'S!!

THIS IS SERIOUS!! YOUR KID'S LIFE COULD DEPEND ON IT!"

Please explain how your doing "kids and parents" a service with this obvious jealousy or hate or both?

I don't know where you drum up your Dunkley info. Lemme guess, you went six to twelve after reading a canesport story? More absurd spin from a guy that shoots from the hip. Recruits always talk up schools they are considering. In your world that always means he's going to commit. Silly fool. He's very interested in Florida. Who knows where he'll end up. Who knows with any of these kids. I'd be very surprised to see him not end up in Orange & Blue. Honestly who cares. It's not about the name always. In the end it's about the class. And we can easily see that UF is schooling UM in this cycle. But if Dunkley does end up in Coral Gables good luck to him.

You seem to think that the Jacksonville kids liking UM is some sort of advantage over UF. Sorry hater, it's not. Again, look at the whole class after signing day.

Try to make it through an entire week without throwing out absurd spin. It'll never happen.

MTX? Still waiting for you to 'splain how a missed offensive interference ( he did interfere) call means that UF's defense will get exposed by 'Bama. Did you learn your topic dodging skills from ultimate radio hack Jorge Sidano? Prolly.

That's the equivalent of Sarasota uttering one of his," OH YEAH.....well....Ole Miss ...HA !" statements.

Riley did know the precise location of that ref and abused the CB, the Tigers, and YOU...lol. That CB played his coverage poorly regardless of the unflagged foul. I'm not saying Riley didn't gain an advantage, I'm just saying the CB aint all that. Trust me hater, if a UM receiver did the exact same thing, you would feel just the same. Don't hate.

Sorry that I bruised your fragile psyche Alan! Lord knows you and "D" Bag (wink) are usually the "voice of reason" here!

You didn't get the Jacksonville reference? That's UF territory Alan. But since you seem to have engaged a debate, I'll bite! No Florida school has a lock on ANY HS anymore. Recruit's might have a favorite school growing up, but they usually choose a school that gives them an opportunity to play right away, or a school that is not already stacked at the recruit's position.

Another thing kids look for is a school that will prepare them for the next level. The rants on here about how UF has redefined the recruiting process are grossly exaggerated. Some kids want to travel, some kids want to play in front of family, some kids like a paticular coach.

I could care less about where a kid is going until they sign. Look at Bryce Brown and Willie Williams. Would you want Bryce Brown on your team? How about Willie Williams? Ryan Periloux? PJ? Some kids are not a good fit for our school. Some kids don't have the grades to get in, so they say they don't feel the love, or they say they are pulling their verbal, when they know the school was no longer interested. The schools are not allowed to comment about recruit's, so the public only gets one side of the story.

Randy and Co. are some of the best recruiters in the country, but you read the garbage you write over here, and you would think that he and his assistant's were some second rate hacks.

9 out of 10 of my posts are no more than responses to some ridiculous statement that you and your bretheren have regurgitated to convince each other that UF is the only school in Florida that can recruit and play football. The others are things I say are to make other cane fans laugh.

College football is cyclical. Players graduate, coaches take new jobs, the fans get restless, etc. Eventually the wheels fall off and your school has to start over. Harvin, Murphy, Warner, are but a few of the changes from last year that have the country questioning UF's ability to repeat. It's hard to make a run at the 'ship when your deep threat is gone, and you are breaking in a new OC.

Another fact you always overlook is that out of the "Big 3", you were the last team to the party! Welcome, what took so long? That's a "dig" AND a fact all rolled into one! Fast forward to today and UF has finally transcended FSU, and now they have their sight's set on UM. More power to U!

Does it make you feel better to say UM doesn't have anything you want? We know that's not true. UM has fielded THE 2 greatest teams in state history, and both teams are considered among the greatest of all time in college football. Does it make you feel better to say it isn't true Alan? We both know that's not true!

I like that new ESPN commercial with Meyer showing off his TWO rings! Wouldn't it be funny if ESPN made a commercial with Randy sporting his THREE rings? He earned one on the field! That's another "Dig" and a fact all rolled into one!

You know how I found Gator Clause? "D" Bag was ranting over at Eye on the U EVERYDAY. I got tired of the daily assault, so I thought I'd bring the "blog war" right to your doorstep.

I came because of his hate, but I stayed for the FUN! It's fun watching your tampon fall out morning, noon, and night! 24/7 365! The difference is I rarely instigate, I only retaliate, BIG difference!

UF has the best football team in the state this year. The SEC is year in and yeat out the best conference in America. I've never debated that. I'm all about facts and fun Alan!

You want to debate, I'll debate, yu want to have "fun", I'll have "fun" right back! I'm better at both than you any day of the week. In fact, not only are you not funny, most of the time you're bitter, angry, and jealous. Why else would you and most other Gator fans be on a campaign to dis-credit all of UM's accomplishments?????? Given the shear # of accomplishments at UM (Population 8000 undergrad!), it makes you look soooooooo petty!

We're coming for U Alan, but we have a few other scores to settle first! Have a great day, and tell "D" Bag I said hello!

P.S. Did I mention that UM is going to "DO IT" with no public funds, and for half the price?? You look soooooooooo stupid!!

Go 'canes!

nice rehash of the same crap you've said 300 times. Unreadable rehash of the same old stuff. I scanned 80% of it. It's not worth reading. "Cyclical, rings, recruiting...blah blah blah." Is that supposed to be an argument. You're an idiot still.

Yes Jax is UF territory just as Booker T. is UM territory. Does Trail and Dunbar make you feel like you lost out? Who cares, I've said numerous times that Shannon can recruit so your full of it with your 'hacks" comment. What you completely ignore in your rant is that Urban IS spanking everyone in recruiting including UM. You had a number one class and it's paying off. That rosey recruiting aint so recruiting anymore as you sit outside the present top 20 of the ESPN rankings that you loved to mention ranked you number one a few years ago.


"I rarely instigate, I only retaliate, BIG difference!" LOL.good one clown. But since you're so proud of yourself explain this idiot:

A MUST READ FOR ALL UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA RECRUIT'S AND THEIR PARENT'S!!

THIS IS SERIOUS!! YOUR KID'S LIFE COULD DEPEND ON IT!

Highly egregious . Way beyond smack.

Whenever you run out of steam you start with the ancient history that no one cares a lick about.

Nobody puts UM on a pedestal anymore because they don't deserve to be on one. Do you give props to Notre Dame? Alabama? for what they did decades ago? NOOOO! Do you care? NOOOO! And by the same token nobody cares about what UM did decades ago. It's just another reality that you can't grasp. College football is about the present team and the returning players and coaches. Winning right now has nothing to do with your history. It ties in with expectations but that's where it ends.

UM has improved but you have a long way to go. A very long way to go. In the present you played a good team and got taken behind the woodshed. It's not that it was a loss, it's that you weren't even competitive and got whipped. There is a big difference between a loss and a whipping. Teams that are "BAAAAAAAAACK" don't get manhandled like that. In all your self glorification you ignore that your team is above average, not a national contender. Always have, always will.

Take an HONEST look at UF's PRESENT recruiting and UM's PRESENT recruiting and tell me you think which one has a brighter future. Dude, its not even close.

Discredit UM"s accomplishments?....HUH?? You have serious Napoleon Complex small man. Stating that UM's past has nothing to do with it's checkered present isn't discrediting anything. It's pointing out that there is a difference. You don't grasp that.

UM puts on the same product for half the price??????

LAUGHABLE !! Thursday night games and a couple of decent wins is not even in the same league as what the defending champions put out. Not even close delusional guy.

There is no comparison. You and all 25,000 fans might think so because you got an ESPN bump. Nobody else does.

Nut Bowl losses and huge blowouts are not the same as National championship and conference championship parties. Not even close. Keep believing that nonsense Napoleon. UF will be playing in a conference championship again in december in front of a sellout crowd and enormous national tv audience. UM will be watching the ACC game from their sofa.......

SAME PRODUCT! ......okee dokee bucko

You have not won ANYTHING yet aside from some regular season games. Don't embarrass yourself further with "same product" nonsense you bumbling idiot.

Reality is not your strong suit.

How I am SPAMMING YOUR BLOG? First of all, I have ALWAYS been high and mighty - so that is nothing new.

Jo, I gave you legitimate contention points and wanted to discuss things you wrote. I thought they were incorrect and thought we would have a conversation. Instead THAT is how you respond to me?

Wow, way to treat one of your most dedicated readers.

Great comeback Alan it the same argument you have rehashed over 300 times before. I'm rubber, you're glue...yawnnnnnnnnnnnn...


Take an HONEST look at UF's PRESENT recruiting and UM's PRESENT recruiting and tell me you think which one has a brighter future. Dude, its not even close.

Not even close Alan? You haven't signed ONE of those kid's yet, and it's not even close??? A couple of those kid's are loking around, taking visit's. A LOT can change between now and February. And you say I have a Napolean Complex? The nerve!

"I rarely instigate, I only retaliate, BIG difference!" LOL.good one clown. But since you're so proud of yourself explain this idiot:

A MUST READ FOR ALL UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA RECRUIT'S AND THEIR PARENT'S!!

THIS IS SERIOUS!! YOUR KID'S LIFE COULD DEPEND ON IT!

You forgot the link Alan!

http://www.cbssports.com/columns/story/12347788

That's an opinion and a "dig" all rolled into one! And you bit! I didn't write that article.

You're SEETHING again Alan, mission accomplished!

P.S. You read every word of it!

Go 'canes!

Hey "D" Bag!

Adam YOU KNOW Jo was kidding! You must! That was so tongue in cheek, I thought he was chewing tobacco!

Go 'canes!

And you haven't signed one of yours yet either jakazz. Can you ever type anything that is thought out and not from the hip? I've never seen it. You pop off like an idiot at every turn. So I guess all of UF's ESPN #! ranked class will be bolting. Darn. God I feel soooooo stupid.

Typical nonsense from an undermedicated moron.

Oh yeah...I read every word of it...type 10,000 more moron.

Seethe, bitter, angry, hate. All words YOU use daily. You're a clown. You see the pattern here dumpkoff? You're far too ignorant to incite any of the emotions you are so sure you are generating. Do they make a med that treat Napoleon complex AND inflated egos? Keep patting yourself on the back you clown.

Sarasota 'Cane,

Yes, of course that was a joke. Sorry I made you so upset, Adam.

-jo-

This guy is on the money:

Have fun celebrating being 3rd in the ACC. That is if you win the rest of your games. Canes fans talking about schedule when their schedule compared to the Gators year in and year out is considerably WEAKER. Why dont you post who had the tougher schedule LAST YEAR???? or the year before? Let us wait until the end of the year and see who has the tougher schedule, by how much, and how many losses we each have.

HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAA the canes fans and their NEXT YEAR talk already. I love it! I cant wait until they lose a game or two next year and then here the NEXT YEAR talk again. LOSER TALK from a LOSER program right now with a big time LOSER coach. Post some facts and not hype and what you want to believe.

What you think jacory harris who throws 2 picks against a weak FAMU team is great? This guy turns the ball over more than anyone I have ever seen. He isnt even close to John Brantley much less Tebow.

You fools live in a dream world. I bet you all thought the Dolphins were going to win the AFC East this year too. Orrr is that a team with NEXT YEAR written all over it too.

NEXT YEAR....BAWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

excUse U....where Next year happens...BABBAHWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHHA

You (UF fan) said UM would be 0-4, now we are 4-1.

You (UF fan) said UM would not sniff the top 25 until we fired Shannon, now we are #9 and climbing.

You (UF fan) said Oklahoma didn't need Bradford to beat UM because of their defense, and then UM's defense won the game for UM!

Now you say UM hasn't won ANYTHING, and come back to reality??? The truth hurts sometimes Alan!

Got undefeated?? "OH YEAH.....well....Ole Miss ...HA !"

Go 'canes!

Hey "D" Bag!

"UF looks sooooooo stupid right now for paying the money they pay for the same product UM is assembling for half the price!" -Sarasota


SAME PRODUCT? Get off the crack pipe Sarasota. You've let your bloated ego cloud your judgement in a serious way.


#2 rushing offense in the country--Florida..where are the great Miami Hurricanes?? #70

Total offense Florida #6
Miami #51

Total defense Florida #1
Miami not bad #39

Do you really believe these two teams are even close?

Coaching? Does anyone really think that Shannon could even hold a candle to Meyer?

Special teams? No comparison

Scoring defense Florida #1
Miami #56

Recruiting this year Florida #5
Miami #18

Table Tennis Florida #8
Miami #64

Where does Miami win????

(You look like an immense idiot daily because you shoot from the hip and never think objectively...EVER)

Adam S.,

I was not aware OTHER people predicated that Hernandez would lead UF in receiving this season. By my recollection, someone on this blog told me I was crazy for writing that.

As for my comment about Demps, the guy is too small to be running between the tackles when UF has a player like Moody. 1. Moody is better between the tackles. 2. I don't want Demps to get hurt. He's going to make his money on the track and not the football field.

-jo-

Stat's are for loser's Alan! You're lumping in Troy, Charleston, and TENN (Don't you dare!)!

As I said before, the SEC is year in and year out the toughest conference in America. Unfortunately for U, that doesn't apply this year to the SEC East, U only play one ranked team before Alabama, and your OOC is a joke!

P.S. You completly plagiarized "D" Bags quotes! Or did you........

BAWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

Go 'canes!

Are U actually going to pay to watch UF drub FIU??

OK, my bad, I overreacted. I just thought YOU were angry with me for trying to get a little pub. If it was spamming, you would know! :)

Jo, as to your last post...

I AGREE that Moody is better between the tackles AND that running Demps there gives him a higher chance of getting hurt. HOWEVER, if you only run Demps outside, then the defense will adjust to that. You have to keep them honest. Look at Sproles at SD - he is best outside in space also - but he has to run the ball inside, too.

I suppose what we can agree on is that Demps should run it inside LESS (and Moody MORE), but he still has to do it a few times a game to keep the defense honest!
