Tim Tebow returns and Florida Gators' defense flexes its muscles

(Check the website for my game story.)

BATON ROUGE, La. -- We figured it would be low scoring but who expected Florida 13, Louisiana State 3? 13-3! 

Wow, five games into the season and Florida's defense has only allowed two touchdowns. What's the bigger story tonight: Tebow's return or UF's defense? Tebow is going to get all the headlines but UF's defense should be getting all the credit. Consider this: Florida had more sacks on Saturday night (five) than LSU had yards in the third quarter (four).

Led by a resurgent Brandon Spikes, UF's defense allowed just 44 yards in the second half. Spikes led the Gators with 11 tackles, including 2.5 sacks. LSU managed just one third-down conversion on nine attempts on Saturday. Whenever the Gators needed a big play on Saturday, it seemed like UF's defense delivered. At the end of the first half, it was a key interception by Joe Haden. At the end of the second half, it was the sacks.

"Just to come in and play in a hostile environment like this, I've never really played in an environment like this one at LSU," said UF linebacker Ryan Stamper, who had nine tackles. "Their crowd is a lot like our home crowd. To come in front of their home crowd says a lot about our team."

LSU offense's managed just 66 rushing yards on 30 attempts. That's 2.2 yards per carry. Tigers quarterback Jordan Jefferson completed 11 of 17 attempts for 96 yards and an interception.

The Gators snapped LSU's Saturday night winning streak at 32 games. Before Saturday, the last time the Tigers lost a Saturday night game at Tiger Stadium came against Alabama on Nov. 16, 2002. LSU lost 31-0. UF's defense nearly had a shutout on Saturday if not for back-to-back unsportsmanlike-conduct penalties that led to LSU's only field goal of the night.

where are all those loser canes fans now?

Actually we're winning and doing well this season thank you. And it's good to see someone giving the D some credit. Lord knows ESPN couldn't possibly credit anyone, but Timmy. The great god of everything Timmy! Why exactly were you calling us out Richie? I mean it wasn't like you beat LSU 49-3 or something. It was a sloppy boring game were your D pounding them into submission.

What's with the lame insults from GAtor fans tonight? I mean first it's "you guys weren't even on TV" (so what?) and now you are calling us losers. Hey Richie 7th grade called and they want their insult back.

I'm pretty sure that was the most childish response u could've had.. "Richie 7th grade called and they want their insult back"?! Who's the idiot now! Don't be a poor loser.. LSU might do fine... Until they face the gators.. Now suck it up and take the loss!

TheU and any other hurricane fan on this blog (including myself)let dem foos talk all they want. pay em no mind. If anything, take the high road. Jo, i got a question: I never really doubted tebow coming back, was it the media that overplayed dis or wat.cuz i never played with a concussion (knock on wood for that,)but i have played with other players that have suffered from concussion and came out the very next week? Or was the severity of the injury that warranted that long of a rest

Finally, the defense took over a game when they had to on the road! It was good to see balance on offense. That was probably more a function of the uncertainty about Tebow's ability to bulldoze than anything else. On the topic of balance on offense, it seemed like Addazio and Meyer wanted to go vertical but Tebow either couldn't see the open guys or they were covered. Jo, I know you were in the stadium --did you see guys running open downfield or were they covered? I think we'll need balance on the stretch run here and going vertical will give opposing d-coordinators night sweats with game plans. Go Gators!

Istofferahn,

Who's the idiot now? RIchie. =)

Emilio it's a message board. A miamiherald message board. You are kind of supposed to, you know, write stuff here. lol

You saw why the Gator D is the best in the Nation.

The Gators gameplan to victory this year is:
1) Play light out D
2) Protect the football and create turnovers
3) Run, run, run and wear down the opposing D

That is their mindset.

To go into LSU, one of the toughest plays to play in the country, at night, where they had a 32 game winning streak on Saturday night, says a lot about the character of this football team.

Dont forget LSU was #4 in the country.

What is the difference between LSU and Alabama?
They both have 4-5 star recruits all over. It is coaching. Alabama is as well coached as anyone.

I grew up in Miami and used to be a Canes fan in the 80s but went to college at UF. Now the Gators are my #1 and Canes are my #2 team. However the coaching differences at places like Alabama and Florida are pretty significant. I really believe if Miami had a coach on their sidelines on par with these schools, they would be on par with these schools.

They would be at the level of those schools. Still not awake this morning.

Let me be the second to call out all those "Canes fans" who said the gators were going down to lsu.You were wrong again!Now go celebrate your victory over famu and butter fingers additional turnovers against a girls school. can that dude hang on to the football? dude needs to put on some stickie gloves or sew the football to his hands. jacory is a turnover machine.

LOL There is Kool Aid again. Were there really Canes fans who said you guys would go down to LSU? Because LSU's offense is a joke. And I will celebrate our victory over FAMU. And our two victories over top 25 teams. As opposed to celebrating your victories over an overrated LSU and three pop warner teams. Seriously you can't really argue schedule against us at this point. And why exactly did you put Canes fans in quotation marks?

George,

Sorry George you can't have it both ways. You're a Gator. You went to UF. It's okay though. The Gator victory at LSU is impressive because it was on the road. That is a tough place to play. However, LSU does not deserve that number 4 ranking. Great defense at LSU, but they are going to have to turn it up on offense or they will go down again. Oh and by the way, in case you haven't noticed you might want to check out the national rankings today. Canes will probably be in the top 10 or close to it. If we continue to win this season we will be "at the level of those schools". We have a great offensive coordinator and a great recruiter at head coach.

Looks like everyone is beating FSU these days. Poor guys, even UM beat them I believe.

UF played well with a partial Tebow. It is is enjoyable to watch. A full Tebow turns field goals into TDs...Either way, 32 game winning streak has ended as expected.

NEXT

Congratulations are in order to the "swamp lizards" on yesterdays engagement on national tv of bible boy and coach meyer.
wishing the happy couple a lovely honeymoon and many happy years together!!!

may I suggest the "everglades" as a possible honeymoon destination, I hear is lovely this time of the year.

Your post makes absolutely no sense! Pump up The U, or take a dig at UF for god's sake! Hell even a little credit when it is due would be more appropriate!

That is one of the dumbest posts I have read all week! You (Bevis) and "D" Bag (Butthead) should get together and pull each others fingers for laughs!

You're an embarassment The U!

Go 'canes!

Between Ole Miss and LSU who have both been ranked as high as #4, I cannot remember a worst combination of such highly ranked teams in history.

The fact that both of those teams were #4 at some point this season is a mockery of the game... They both BLOW!!

If LSU played Ole Miss, I predict a 0-0 tie.. HaHaHa

There are only two teams in the SEC... FLA and Ala...Period!

Yeah and where would you put FSU, who the Canes considered one of their "ranked" teams??? FSU is worse than Troy and may be worse than Charleston Southern. Heck, they were one play from losing to Jacksonville State. Guess what? The Canes were one play from losing to that joke of an FSU team. I actually am starting to feel bad for FSU. I shouldnt pick on them anymore. Until FSU and Miami get a head coach, it will just be Florida and South Florida in the state for football.

FACTS:

Miami got manhandled by VTECH. The same VTECH team that lost to Alabama.

FACT Miami isnt even close to being in the same league as Alabama, Florida, or Texas much less the next lower tier team of VTECH. Go back and play your Madden 1985 because that is the only way Miami is going to sniff an ACC title game.

Miami cant even win that weak basketball conference, the ACC or even show up to the conference championship game. Until you win the conference, go into hiding. There is nothing to brag about.

Florida just beat the #4 team in the country on the road at a place where they havent lost in 32 straight Saturday night games. Who did the Canes beat that was any good? FSU? Oklahoma without Bradford, Gresham, and Broyles at home by one point? One dimensional GTECH? At the end of the year we will see who has the tougher schedule and where you stand and where the Gators stand.

Gators played a top 5 school and its looking like they will be playing another top 5 school in December and another top 5 school in the NC game. By that time all those weak Canes wins that looked so good to you at the beginning of the year, will look mediocore at the end. FSU BAWAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAH

I dont even include FSU as a tough game for the Gators but to the Canes its like playing the 85 Bears.

Miami...LOL.

Posted by: Kool Aid | October 11, 2009 at 12:18 PM

Bradford???? You said OU didn't need Bradford to beat UM, remember "D" Bag?

You (and every respectable analyst) said OU's defensive front seven was all they needed to beat UM, remember "D" Bag?

UM's defense knocked Broyles out of that game, remember "D" Bag?

What the hell do you call that performance by the "Greatest Team In UF History"? Do you honestly think UF can hang with Alabama "D" Bag?

What does Alabama beating VT have to do with UF? Did you watch the VT game yesterday? What on earth did U see that would suggest UF can beat VT "D" Bag? Because they play in the SEC? Because VT was beaten by a team that is going to "step on your neck" in November? That's your UF logic "D" Bag!

Is Tebow the worst pocket passer in the SEC? Let me answer that for you "D" Bag, YES! Is there a secret receiving corps being developed for the run to Pasadena that the rest of us are not aware of??????????

Remember this: Tebow came back to take your self-proclaimed "Greatest Team in UF History" to an undefeated season! The "UNDEFEATED SEASON" is of more importance for UF this year than a NC, or an SEC 'ship! You'll say otherwise, but we all know the truth.

FSU??? We play every team that is beating or could beat FSU! We already beat GT "D" Bag! We beat OU, who was beaten by BYU, who was beaten by FSU! We still play USF! Clemson will probably beat FSU, no problem, we play them too "D" Bag! My condolences to the Bowden family for their losses this year, it's time!

And once again "D" Bag, everything U think about, everything U write about has to do with your obesession with The U! The U is in your thoughts 24/7!

Got undefeated?

Go 'canes!

One more thing "D" Bag, you read every word of it!

Go 'canes!

We know who UM is "D" Bag, and it looks like they arrived a year early!

Go 'canes!

Kool Aid,

Fact: Until we play a Florida or Alabama or Texas none of us will really know whether Miami is at that level. Fact, the Gators have played one overrated team all year. Fact, you're argument against our schedule is silly. You haven't played anyone, but a weak offensive in LSU. Fact, if you played four straight ranked teams (you don't play four ranked teams this YEAR) then you could make a sensible argument. Fact, I personally want to win out and you guys win out and play each other then the argument could be settled.. Fact, VTech game was third straight ranked team (what happened to Texas when they played consecutive ranked teams last year?), in the rain and mud and muck. Fact, VTech is much better now than the team that played Alabama. Bama got them at the beginning of the year. Fact, you guys haven't played anyone, but a weak LSU offense on an overrated team.

Fact:

Kool aid knows about as much about football as my grandma. And she's dead.

Kool aid what's funny about your post is none of that is fact. You should probably look up the word fact in the dictionary. It's all opinion. Just like my posts. And we have a lot to brag about. You and the rest of the world thought we would be 0-4. We beat GTech and Oklahoma when no one thought we would.

Chaz,

Seriously. FSU is worse than Troy and Charleston Southern? Really? You're impressed with your team over those victories. Really? Give me a break. This is the first week you guys have something to brag about and it was a boring, boring game against an overrated team.

It's funny how every team Miami plays is great and every team Florida plays is overrated.

The truth is Florida year in and year out plays one of the toughest schedules in the nation. If you dont believe it, check out the strength of schedules where last year Florida had the toughest schedule in the country. The Gators never have to apologize for their schedule since they play in the toughest conference in the country and are consistently in the top for strength of schedule. Miami played what looked like a tough beginning schedule prior to the year; however now looks like the only "tough" team was VTech and they got pounded. Now all Canes fans pound their chest about strength of schedule? BAHAHWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAH
Play a tough schedule consistently and win your conference (not the NC, just your conference), then you have the right to talk. Until then, you play in a mediocore conference. One in which you cant even make the conference championship game.

We know this: There are 3 legit teams as of now: Florida, Alabama, and Texas. Outside of that, everyone else is a pretender, until there is proof otherwise. Everyone thought FSU was going to be decent this year, well guess what, they are horrible. You want to count that as a ranked opponent? Let us see where the strength of schedules are at the end of the year. Remember you dont get a prize for playing the toughest schedule or putting the most players in the NFL or anything else, you get it for winning the National Title.

Whoa. Looks like there are a lot of canes people with gator envy.

Though the Gators have a superiority complex, they continue to be underrated.

GO UF

It is really killing the Hurricanes fans to see the Gators on top. 2 of the last 3 with potential of 3 of the last 4 national titles. The sec is a tough conference and the best in college football. I think its tough as a canes fan to see the gators and urban meyer dominate recruiting and dominate on the field in the best conference and then have satan leave the fins and go on to bama and turn them around immediately. you dont hear bama making excUses like canes fans. bama just goes out and plays tough, hard nosed, well coached football. canes are coached by a baby who isnt a head coach. he is a defensive coordinator and that is it. randy shannon couldnt hold satans or meyers jock as far as head coaching goes. its tough to be looking up to the gators and a satan coached bama team. i sympathize with them. it is hurtful, painful, and sad. sarasota'cane and his alter egos on the gator board posting like a 13 year old asian girl. it hurts to have the gators on top.

So Miami's big wins this year are over a lousy FSU team that couldnt punch it in the endzone to beat them, a mediocre GT team, and a soon to be 3-loss OK team who was starting a Freshman at QB...impressive

Don't forget they beat the baby rattles of FAMU high school.

so LSU is overrated and terrible but Okie is great. got it. thanks for clarifying.

Reality is tough,

Nice name change BTW. You contradict yourself within that post. You claim you have such a tough schedule and then turn around and say there are 3 legit teams in Alabama, Texas and Florida. You guys haven't played any of those teams. So yes I say LSU is overrated until they actually win some games and show some offense. And no everyone we play is not great. Obviously, FSU is not good. GTech is okay, but not as good as advertised before the season. And Oklahoma was overrated, but are at about the level they should be right now. It was still a brutal way to open the season and no one else in the country has that kind of stretch. I mean you guys play LSU in LSU which is a difficult place to play. But before that it was Kentucky and then a week off. Next week it is an Arkansas team that is ok. But it's at home. You guys may not play another ranked team until the SEC title game. That isn't a tough schedule at all. So arguing schedules is pretty stupid. Talent, you guys can argue. You have amazing talent. You guys did it last year with this amazing group on D. You have also shown some serious flaws this year. If the schedule was more difficult you guys might be in trouble. As it stands now you have a trip to the SEC title game and then win that and it's Pasadena. Facing two difficult challenges.

Richie,

Your arguments are dumb. I think Oklahoma could beat LSU. That's an opinion though. And that doesn't mean we could beat the Gators. You have a stock pile of Juniors and Seniors that are headed to the NFL while we are still developing. You just can't sit here and say our start to the season was a joke. We didn't start with Troy, Charleston Southern, Tennessee and Kentucky. You just can't argue schedules. LSU victory is impressive because it is on the road. But you showed that if a team can score some points (big if against your D) then the Gators can be beat.

And LSU isn't terrible. Just overrated. They will lose again. They are a top 20 team, but not top 10.

The UF defense is top-notch. Can't wait to see UF play Alabama in Atlanta for the SEC title. If you thought the UF-LSU game was low scoring, just wait till the Bama game. That one is gonna be a good old-fashioned slugfest.

Like people have said already, just because you played a challenging opening schedule (albeit it look more challenging before the season started) and the Gators have had easier games starting out, doesnt mean our whole schedule is a joke and yours is some monster. Lets see where we both are at the end of the year when all is said and done. Preseason rankings are a joke as we all saw from FSU.

You now have a stretch of easy games that started with FAMU. The Gators have to bring it every week in SEC play. Granted, the SEC seems a little more down this year than in years past but they are still the top conference. You win the SEC or even go to the SEC championship game this year and you are a legit team. The ACC is very soft. It would have been interesting if the Canes joined the SEC instead of running scared for the ACC. Still, it looks much better that the Canes joined a conference, eventhough it is the ACC. At least they have to play that extra championship game which can be a monster. Its sad that some leagues dont have a conference championship game.

Bottom line let the season play out before you talk about schedules.

It's funny how every team Miami plays is great and every team Florida plays is overrated.

Did you copy and paste that from the other blog, and then just switch the team names "D" Bag????? You are like GD a parrot!

"D" Bag: "I know you are, but what am I?"
"D" Bag: "I'm rubber you're glue..."

P.S. Did Meyer call last nights game a "Game of the Century" on ESPN? What century? Does UF fan have ANY shame when he speaks???? Do you think YOU are Alabama this year, because UF plays in the same conference?

Alabama is far and away the best team in college football right now! When Alabama destroys your self-proclaimed "Greatest UF Season of All Time", how soon before you jump on their tit "D" Bag?

UM went from 0-4 to 4-1 in 5 games! What changed "D" Bag????? Not bad considering our arrival was not expected until next year! We know who we are!

Nobody's coming on here to rile you morons, you do that all by yourselves! But when I come on here and read the absolute garbage that you FOOLS write about UM and UF, I have to say something. You want to spin that game you played in last night, go for it.

UF brought practically nothing to that game on Tebow's side of the ball that would suggest UF is on a collision course with the NC. UF will BE LUCKY to go to a BCS game if their offense continues to play like that, let alone play for the NC.

Got undefeated? Guess what, you still won't! Suck on that tonight "D" Bag!

Let me let you in on a little secret "D" Bag, your "Greatest Season of All Time" was last year, and Ole Miss. is still laughing at Tebow's speech!

In your head 24/7 since 1944! Deal with it!

Go 'canes!

You read EVERY word of it!

Bottom line let the season play out before you talk about schedules.

Posted by: gatorclause | October 11, 2009 at 06:32 PM

Is it possible? A voice of reason fom UF?

You were "almost" there gatorclause, until of course you said UM should have joined the SEC! When was that olive branch extended to UM, and when did UM "turn the SEC down"?

You know when, let me help you, NEVER! In fact UNTIL THIS YEAR, that story has always been told in reverse, and dates back to the 1970's, but nice try! It certainly sounds better for you to say that UM is ducking UF, when it appears to many that UF has historically ducked UM!

UM will play UF every year, UF will not play UM every year, how is UM ducking UF?? To paraphrase "W", it's "Fuzzy UF Logic"!

At least gatorclause is starting to "soften" the rhetoric a little. He sees the same thing most of us did last night, that UF is quite ordinary as top teams go, and can easily lose one or more games this year.

"UF has changed the way teams recruit, and UM will never compete again!" Remember that one "D" Bag? Remember how you said UM could not compete finacially with UF? Litte did you know that your AD was in bed with Bernie Madoff!!

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

In your head 27/7 since 1944!

Go 'canes!

Gatorclause,

Everything you said was on point until you had to throw in that "run scared" point. WTF? It's statements like that that invalidate your whole argument. We both know that Miami joined the ACC because of money. Period. Why would you make such a dumb statement? The SEC has great athletes, but honestly a lot of their success is reputation based. Not that the ACC is great. Hardly. It's mediocre with Miami and VTech seemingly separating from the pack. We can't really say accurately who the best conference or team is until there is a championship playoff. We could argue all day who's number one and who's victory means more than this other victory. While I would say the SEC is probably the top conference, I don't think it's the run away conference that everyone makes it out to be. Let's not forget that last year the Pac10 was like 7-1 in bowls. Not that they are elite this year, but they had the best record a year ago and yet USC was not in the title game. Same record as UF and a conference that won all, but one bowl game yet they didn't get in. Every year there is an argument. It's never settled on the field. And the fact that you guys play a seemingly weak schedule this year proves nothing. If nothing else you should take a hit for the non-conference schedule. They give us nothing to go on, but what they do against the SEC.

We know this: There are 3 legit teams as of now: Florida, Alabama, and Texas. Outside of that, everyone else is a pretender, until there is proof otherwise.

BOTTOM LINE

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

LMAO..what a crock of shlt

keep believing that moron.

U haven't done anything....go back to your knee slapping blog idiot

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

Just the FACTS: Your next year looks pretty bad too. According to Rivals, the most respected recruiting service. top 5

1 Texas
2 LSU
3 Penn State
4 Oklahoma
5 Florida

Top 5 for recruiting this coming class. Where are the great recruiting Canes??????? What Northwestern doesnt have a good team???? Poor Shannon. Cant coach and cant recruit unless Northwestern has a good team.

I cant wait until next year. All this BS canes hype. I will be all over their boards rubbing it in their face, letting them know how dumb they are with all the NEXT YEAR talk. Next year it will be the same story: We are too young, Next year, no i meant the year after that.

Just shut up and try winning that weak conference of yours!!!

Just the FACTS:

If I'm not mistaken, there is 5 more months before signing day.

#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 remember last year when Shannon said he was going to take over Red Zone offense because Miami was WORST in the entire nation. Well he did, he actually got improvement. This year they are actually ranked #100 in red zone offense out of 120 teams. Amazing what great coaching can do!

Um sukkkkks

Overrated with a mediocre QB

Next year is our year. Next year. No I meant next year.

How is Jacory overrated??? Look at his TD/INT ratio? OOOops I meant look at the number of times he has fumbled. Wait, look at our tough schedule. I mean we played FSU and Virginia tech. Wait we got blown out against Tech. Next year next year. We are young. Its cokers fault. Forston has been hurt. Streeter transferring has messed up our confidence. It was raining. It was the officials. Next year.
You read every word of that, P-breath.

I am the real sarasota. Who posts on the gator blog incessantly because I have a tiny wee wee and I envy the john holmes of football the florida gators. I want to be a fan of your team!

Jo? Do you know the name of the guy from Hawaii who counsels Urban? He's not on the staff but has a very close friendship with Urban. I saw him on the sideline on tv this season. I read a long story last year about him and his relationship with Urban. I just can't remembr his name. He was also buds with Urban during his Utah time. Please help.

His name is Don Ho Alan!

Yeah and we've been hearing about UF going undefeated for over 100 years! You'll get there someday lil' guy!

P.S. I know you're part of the "text generation" richie, but let's try to adhere to basic rules of prose while we're in here, got it? Jo's a journalist, show a little respect to his "craft"!

Hey "D" Bag!

Whenever this inferiority complex closet gator fan gets cornered he starts in with the ancient history. Nobody cares what happened ten years ago much less 100 you whining pansy. Grab your throwback jersey and head to Canton LOSER. Or realize that it's 2009 and nobody cares about your long ago run that featured the softest schedules ever seen by "National Champions."
#2 rushing offense in the country--Florida..where are the great Miami Hurricanes?? #70

You keep saying you know who you are. You don't have a clue who you are. If you did you wouldn't talk smack on the board of the team that has dominated football in the here and now. You faced a good team and got the stuffing knocked out of you. Five games in and the above stats tell you who you are. A very mediocre program who has risen through the polls because of attrition. It's hilarious because you have glaring holes in your team and have no tough teams left to faced. So you'll end up in a decent bowl and get throttled like weve seen over and over.

Wofford just called, they said they would sell your conference it's dignity back in exchange for an appearance in the Nut Bowl. William & Mary is on line two.

Morning "D" Bag!

Go 'canes!

UF is underrated.

U knew this was coming, own it Gator fan! Congrat's on your victory!

Though concussions are very serious, the article is quite speculative as the player and his parents (who did not have concussions) participated in the decision for TT to play.

As tough as UM's SOS was at beginning of year, it will go down nearly every week now until USF may give them the business...gosh that could be embarrassing

Florida should have made Dan Mullen the Head Coach and kicked Urban to the curb. Better hope Charlie Strong doesn't leave anytime soon.

Did that outfit make me look fat Saturday night?

I thought you looked great. i can't wait o see you in two weeks. Wear something sexy.

I wish I had a concussed Tebow on my team. I'd call his number every play. Heck, if Jacory didn' have ankles as thin as Nicole Richie maybe we would have been able to beat Va. Tech. Oh well, I actually like the Poulin Weed-Eater bowl. I hope the pregame gala buffet has fried chicken this year.

Maybe we can meet you at that bowl game! I love Fried Chicken!

Frediech?

Too bad the canes enthusiasm on this blog doesn't translate into attendance at their games. Great matchup this weekend -- Gator D against Arkansas O. Hopefully we can get to Ryan Mallet like we got to Jefferson.

You guys see how the economy has hit the Canes. They are busing to their football games.


You cant spell bUs without da U.

Frediech?

Spelling is not his strong suit boca! But eating his own boogers, now there's something "D" Bag has mastered!

P.S. Nice "Sponge Bob" piece Jo! Did you lose a bet, or was that a dare?

Go 'canes!

It was for our new expanded Page 2 for Monday's paper. Lighter side kind of stuff. Just something silly to kind of put sports in the proper perspective.

I have taken over the red zone offense this year since last year we were last in the country. Cant you see the improvement? We have now improved to #100 in the country.
Have you also seen we have improved to #18 in the country in recruiting? Thanks to me. I also got us to take the team bus on our road trips. It's one of those nice yellow school buses too. Remember you cant spell bus without da U.

Hey Richie,

You're an idiot. They weren't last in red zone offense and Shannon never said that. If you are going to take shots at least don't make them up. Say Shannon is a bad coach, calls too many timeouts, etc. whatever. But we weren't last in red zone offense. We were first in the ACC. Dumbass.

Hi folks,

I just wanted to tell everyone that the rumors are true. I am leaving for Notre Dame. Not because of money or because it is my favorite school, but because I've been cheating all this time. Yes I've been buying recruits just like Pete Carroll and Les Miles. And the steroid rumors are true as well. Tim tested positive 7 times last season. So did 3 quarters of the team. So I'm leaving before they investigate us. Oh and yes I am totally in love with Timmy. In fact he's pregnant with my child. Thank you all!

Dude you seriously need to read the Miami Herald more Dah U. There was an article on it last year in the Herald stating Shannon was taking over the red zone offense since you WERE LAST IN THE COUNTRY. You improved slightly last year but were still pathetic. This year it is more of the same, you are ranked #100 out of 117. You should learn to read. Your MDCC degree isnt being put to use.

Post the article moron.

Urban Meyer is nothing without Dan Mullen. Urban is going to stay at UF like bobby petrino stayed in Louisville. The wooing of Charlie Strong will be on after this year.

The LSU and UT games where way to close. Mullen was blowing the same teams out last year.

HELL YEAH!!! I think the Dolphin's found their new quaterback(s)!

Go Dolphin's!!!

How 'bout that "D" Bag! Are U a Dolphin's fan?

Sarasota 'cane -- I read the Doyel blog...same old blah, blah, blah. A good re-hash of the outsider-in hysteria that's been slung across blogs and media for the last two weeks. He left out the part about the national experts that were flown in to assess the matter (e.g. U of Pitt medical experts) -- experts who have no affiliation with the University. If he was worth his salt he would have made some sort of recommendation on a path forward (e.g. bench Tebow for the next few games, declare Tebow's season over). I wouldn't have agreed with him but the article would've been worth reading. Must be a slow news week..

Just another day @ #1

Doyel's piece was pure garbage. Nothing more than the ramblings of an ignorant hater. Regardless, I will jump on the nut sack of any writer who portrays anything in a negative light regarding UF. I post on this blog that I like the Gators as long as they aren't playing UM. But we all know I'm a delusional moron who couldn't sort facts from fudge. I live on this blog all day long. I'll take anything mentioned on this blog and repost it months later over and over and misquote it while im at it. You see, I'm just a jealous hater. But I like the Gators (wink).

Hey "fake" Sarasota 'cane, we have the same screen name! Sounds like you really like the Gator's! Anyway isn't CBS Sports the network of the Gator's and the SEC??????????????????

Why would CBS write a piece condemning UF and Meyer, when they are paying your school millions and millions and millions and millions and millions of dollars??????? (That's a lot of millions!)

You like fudge???
