And now for the Gators' official message to recruits...

NEW ORLEANS -- Florida assistant head coach Dan McCarney addressed recruiting with Gator Clause on Monday.

GATOR CLAUSE: Dan, how do you sell stability to this recruiting class when you're going to have all of your rivals bombarding the players?

DAN MCCARNEY: "That's a real good question and we've already had to do that. All we can say is we have great faith in the direction of the program. All of us believe Coach Meyer will be back. We can't tell you how long it will be, but all the things that our in this program -- why you chose Florida or you're considering us -- to a great degree, those things are still here and they're all still in place. We're going to have great fans. We're going to have tremendous facilities, tremendous success, great leadership. Coaches have proven ... When you go 22 wins in a row in this lifetime or the next, we know what we're doing. We've got a good plan. We've got good coaches that execute it. We've got real good players and come be a part of that.

"We address it. We're honest. We're upfront about it and yet we can't put a certain timetable on when we think Coach Meyer will be back."

good enough for me, i'll committ

The Gator's run is over!

True line of BS. Gator coaches are swindlers, they might as well work in the banking industry.

GET EVERYTHING IN WRITING RECRUITS..

UF's recruits are left in limbo whether Meyer steps down or not. Now, they have to realize that any day UF's coach can say "I'm resigning." He changes his mind overnight--literally. Given that, he has lost several other coaches already, and he is losing many players to the draft, UF is now supposedly turning over it's team to a guy who they were looking to fire as OC a month ago, I would say UF has MANY question marks for recruits. In Meyer trying to save this recruiting class, he could easily have another chink in the armor.

490, you are so right.


lets break it down.

He had a top 5 class before:
1) He lost to Alabama.
2) He lost his DC.
3) He lost his ace recruiter (Gonzalez) to a rival team, LSU.
4) He announced his one day resignation.

After his temporary resignation, FOLEY talked him into a plea bargain deal of taking the LOA. Immediately after his temporary resignation announcement, several UF commitments were saying they were opening things up. During the presser, all they did was say how much they all loved UF and coach Meyer. Meyer would not even comment on his medical "condition". He said he felt in his heart he would be coaching on the sidelines next year. This is an obvious attempt to remove doubt from the minds of doubting recruits. He's giving them a false hope.

IF he truly has a medical condition serious enough to have him contemplate resigning, then he will step down after NSD. AFTER UF solidifies a top class. He said in that presser that he would do what was best for the University of Florida. Would it be best for him to walk away leaving recruits to shop elsewhere for a school?

looks like i'll be going to FSU.

see ya Matt...don't need ya

Matt is the gem of your class. all of a sudden you don't need him, ha?


YOU HAVEN'T SEEN THE BOTTOM YET!!

RICHIE I A CANE FAN!!!

GATOR FANS LOVE MATT ELAM AND CANT WAIT TO SEE HIM IN NUMBER 22 FOR THE GATORS!!!!

GO GATORS!!!!!!!!!

"Luckily I'm a senior," "I'm out of here."

If Elam wants to go let him go.

LET ME REPEAT, THIS IS THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA. WE DON'T NEED YOU, YOU NEED US.

GO TO FSU MATT AND BECOME, DARE I SAY, GATORBAIT...

Why would i play for a coach like that? One minute he is sick to the point where he has to quit. and then in less then 24 hours, he is magically cured and is ready to go back to work. That's "bi- polar" if you ask me and i for one, am glad that i chose to play at the school with the most MNC's in florida.

I am looking for a name for Uf's tradition. can anyone help me out?

Hey kehoe/pig... Remember 490....

Gators own your every waking moment Sarasota U pathetic old man.

U WAKE UP THINKING GATORS AND GO TO BED THINKING GATORS
SAME FOR U CANESRULE.
TWO BITTER CLOWNS.

Great question by the way, Jo with the buyout clause.

I could have thought of a million more questions before that one though. What made you ask it? Foley had this look like he was going to kill you.

You Mad???

You Cane fans are hilarious. if you could harness your envy/unhealthy obsession for UF into profuse University of Miami-Florida crowd support, I think you guys could pretty much fill out the bottom section of the off-campus, essentially Broward county located baseball stadium you play in.

Jo, I think Meyer is still perplexed about what to do. That is obvious in the comments made by Heater and McCarney. The first thing he needs to do is establish a DC. most of the remaining undecided superstar recruits are on the d side of the ball.

If Meyer is going to participate in this bowl and work during the recruiting period instead of letting his team handle this bowl game in a perfect preseason-esque simulator for Addazio and the gang, then he needs to decide on a DC and linebacker coach as quickly as he filled the void with Billy Gonzalez.

Funny how all these gator bandwagoneers get aggrivated when we come to U-FELON sites,And they have been on UM blogs ALL YEAR LONG talking crap.Next year it gets worse.Should have left us alone . Next year I'll bet they wont even be able to get on these sites there will be somany CANES laughing hysterically at them. Can't wait! CANE TIL' I DIE!!!

Can I still transfer?

Hey can I be interim OC? I sure did better than that Adda Addu Benzino guy!

Is it safe to say , Next year it will be gaytor COUNTY.

RIP gator football

u had a good lil run

Urban is a trainwreck

What a train wreck!

No recruit in their right mind would want to go to UF next season, unless they were being paid! I guess that's why Chris "Gobs of Cash" Rainey is staying, or is he???

Go 'canes!

An open letter to potential UF recruits:

Do you need me to tell you that UF will be down for several years? Do not walk, RUN away from that drama! UF's seniors are publicly stating that they are glad that they are outta there!

Remember the "Sanford Trio"? How do you think Andre Dubose feels right about now??? Deonte Thompson?? Anyone think they would rather be in Miami?

Anywhere but UF!!!!!!

Go 'canes!

Why did I ask that question? The decisions men make during the course of their lives can be summed up quite simply. It's either all about a girl or all about money.

-jo-

The dude wins a couple of titles,
he's got job security,
he's got a built-in recruiting base,
he's got a wall street contract,
etc. etc. etc.
Yet he needs to be medicated to enjoy it.
Pressure would be if you were losing,
losing your job,
not getting top recruits.
Pressure would be patroling your streets.
Pressure would be trying to teach gator students.
Then I could see the need to be medicated.

What's going to happen next year when the gators start losing???
Guess the prozac sales will be sky-rocketing..

BITTER CLOWNS.

Your program is an irrelevant joke and U are buried in ENVY.

Dude looks and sounds like you need some of the same medication your coach needs.

YOUR about to become irrelevant and you know you'll be watching with ENVY tonight when we demolish wisconsin on our way to our 6th title (according to jesse palmer (a another failed gaytor QB but now a ESPN college insider) and kirk herbstreit) in '10..

Wall Steet Investing tip...... Before the start of the 2010 college football season, all serious investors should buy as many shares in PROZAC stock as they are financially capable of buying. Buy all you can before the start of the season and sell by the end of the regular season. This in it's self will be the best investment of the century... Good luck GAYTURDS. You are now in a dreaded downward spiral leadimg you right back to where you came from....NOWHERE. UF GAYTURDS 2010 7-5 if you are lucky.

Yeah man 9-3 with a potential 10-3 and a Top 10 Pre-season ranking. Not to mention young developing talent.

You're right man, the U is irrelevant. I wish I was a Gator! HAHAHAHA

BTW: We're so irrelevant that The U 30 for 30 is the most watched documentary in ESPN history.

OWN THE PAST, OWN THE FUTURE!

How irrelevant?!?!

The Gators have become tabloid divas! Last time I checked, playing a coachless Cincy team makes you kinda irrelevant too doesn't it??????

WAKE, VT(the ball was wet), Butch, Spiller fool.
U always have blowout losses, same thing in 2010 behind a new OC, a new oline and a pick throwing fumbling twig fool.

U R Delusional

Please, tell me what you have to look foward to next season?

Be honest, we can compare.

Seriously, the haters (i.e. Cane fans) posting crap all the time is tiring. Don't know about you, but I won't waste anymore time reading this junk from you bitter little beyatches. I've never been on a UM board, nor would I ever care to be... U suck and you know it - no need to rub it in on your boards. Jo, thanks for providing insight, but I'll just keep the comments section collapsed from now on because these U Clowns vomit all over it every time. Go Gators!

Swamp Thing:

I occasionally respond, but its not worth it. Just ignore, skim down to comments like yours, comments from avtul Gatoir fans, then read and respond.

Don't let the Cane fans collective unhealthy envy of UF's success this decade affect your posting.

Rico:

I think you need a life. This same vomit is what censored the U blog. So now, U fans like me have to raid your blog to get instant dialogue. You can thank Kehoe for my appearance.

KARMA

If u ain't playing on New Years day or later you are pretty much irrelevant. I can't believe what i'm hearing...now canes fans get excited about preseason rankings. Hey idiots. its not how you start its how you finish which the canes know nothing about. Oops, my bad I forgot they used to finish back in the 80's.

Whatever your name is posting to me @ 10:54am:

It's a bit rich that you - a Miami(FL) fan (alum would be stretching it, that's a rarity on here), daily invading a Florida blog on countless occasions using various monikers - are telling me to get a life.

Please take a moment and honestly assess the irony in that.

So because someone is invading the Miami(FL) blog, you feel you have to come over here and act like an idiot many times, on a daily basis, in an attempt to hijack and harass Florida fan bloggers? You seem smarter, more mature than that.

You want to engage in discourse here, I'd love to do it, but you don't post serious stuff. It's all the ramblings of someone who appears to be an 18 year old clown.

Imagine discussing with the person you most respect in the world your decision to repeatedly attempt to hijack this blog, and justify that action with what appears to be your reason - someone else is being an idiot, so I decided to act just like him. Don't you think Respected Person would perceive you as a clown? an immature kid?

You do what you want chief, but come on here with the hamsters runnig on that treadmill in your brain, try to engage in some debate - reasonable, intelligent men discussing passionate college football topics - and you'd be shocked at the respect and attention you'd get.

From the intelligent men on this board.

Go concentrate on your game tonight on your Miami board, you belittle your status as a Miami(FL) fan by hanging out here on a Miami(FL) gameday.

For RICO PALAZZO... THE DEFINITION OF DECADE IS A PERIOD OF 10 YEARS. 3 YEARS FROM 2006-2009 DOES NOT COUNT AS A DECADE. Sounds like UF education at it's best. Enjoy the fall Gaytors .

Hey two decades one ship. Where did you learn how to count. The U has a championship in 1991. That would be the decade of the 90's. The U also has a championship in 2001. That would be the 2K decade. So you see in the 2K decade UF only has 1 ship more than The U. If not for a BS call in OT against the Buckeyes we would have 2 ships this decade just as UF does. Now with all that said try to remember that The U has 5 championships and UF only has 3.

Posted by: RicoPallazzo! | December 29, 2009 at 12:11 PM

yes, that is exactly what he is trying to say. your stupid gator friend has been on our blog for the last three years. call it pay back, being juvenile, acting an ass or whatever you want. but "we's aint" going NO WHERE.....

i'm really touched by the out-pouring of support the gator players have shown coach prozac..
BTW, what else would they do?? DUH.

ENVY UF


BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

RILEY COOPER doesn't even want to play in the bowl game.


HE'S GONE ON THE FIRST THING SMOKING


SCAPEGOAT NEW HC
NO OC
NO DC
NO RECRUITING COORDINATOR

recruits jumping off ship fatser then cooper. (see matt elam)

Chumps Bowl tonight baby! Watch Jacory go for the bowl interception record!

Dare i say, i might have to go back to being a CANE fan next year. it's well known that i was a cane fan in the beginning of the decade when they had arguably one of the best teams ever put together. but i have a good eye for things. i could see uf getting better and quickly jumped on the bandwagon.

i mean before 06 Florida only had one mnc. now, compare that to Miami's five at the time. you're an idiot if you think i wasn't a cane fan before 06. maybe that's why the call the gators "johnny-come-lately," who would of thought.


Florida won 2 out of three mnc's and every body in gator "community" thought we were on our way to our 3rd in 4 years. but Alabama came and killed our hopes. now, we have no coaches, players are coming out and saying negative things about the program( see riley cooper) and recruits are jumping ship like this was the titanic.

even goodman said that next year the miami team we'll be the most talented and experienced team in the state next year. looks like I'm a CANE fan next year. Sorry Gator "community."

GO CANES

OK Rico, you want an educated convo. Let's see if you can see past your Gator goggles.

Like I posted previously:

1. What do Gators fans have to look foward to?
2. What program is in better condition going foward?
3. Who has a better chance of contending for a conference or national championship next year?
4. What coaching staff has the most stability?
5. What team has more key players returning?
6. Who has the most to gain from their bowl games?
7. Does a bowl game vs. a coachless (most likely out of the top 25 next year) Cincy really matter?
8. Even if you win that game, what does it do for your program?
9. What is your outlook for next season?
10. Of your games @ Tenn., @ Bama, and @ FSU, how many do you expect to win?

Trust me I'm more educated than you think. The adult conversations begin now.

Go ahead sir, first 10 Q's. Let's see how many you can answer honestly.

hell no, i don't want to be the DC at this train wreck of a program.

Randy Shannon should give up the HC job and go back to coordinating defenses because that D is weak. Whiskey is going to pound that ass tonight.

Posted by: Hogtown Gator | December 29, 2009 at 01:18 PM

like bama pounded uF for 490.

Gators, gators, gators. Can't stop talking about the gators. if i put as much effort into finding our most famous alumn paul mehrige, the world would be a better place. gators, gators, gators. my favorite show was da u on 30 for 30. they left out the most important part though -- the apart about how we bilked the taxpayers out of millions of $$ with the pell grant scam. gators, gators, gators. can't stop talking about the gators! we got swagger....i think...gators, gators, gators

Read what Cooper said yesterday. Look what UF’s 5 star DE recruit Powell is saying about UF. Read what EVERY national report on UF is saying. UF would have been better off if Meyer had quit.

Meyer doen’t have a bad heart, he has a broken heart! The guy resigns one day, visits practice and then “Waffles”??? Sounds like a breakdown to me. This whole leave of absence is a ploy to try to salvage the upcoming recruiting season.

UF’s recruit’s are ALL talking to other programs right now whether U want to believe it or not! The ones that are not locks for other schools are going to say that they are still committed to UF until they find their new schools, THEN they will fax over their de-commitments.

I have never seen a program fall apart in one month before in all my years of watching the game. UF fan wated Addazzio fired last week, now he’s your new HC????? WTF????

Of course UM fan is blowing up the UF blogs right now! When the circus comes to town, I’ll buy a ticket. I have never seen anything this entertaining since Ron Zook marched the team over to the frat house to settle a “score” with the frat brothers!

“Raging dumpster fire!”
“2nd Tier Coach!”
“U haven’t seen the bottom yet!”
“The Flop!”
“The Flop Part Deux!”
“Got undefeated?”

Ain’t Karma a Byatch?

Go ‘canes!

ORLANDO — The 2009 season isn't quite over yet for the Miami Hurricanes, but already one can hear cries of, "Wait till next year."

"A national championship?" sophomore quarterback Jacory Harris asked rhetorically. "That's very realistic for next year. We're going to try to shock the world."

You will be saying wait till next year ..... NEXT YEAR U CLUELESS SCUMBAG

( anybody who continually makes jokes about serious health issues is a SCUMBAG........Sarasota)

" I like the Gators when they're not playing the canes."-Sarasota

U are also a lying bag of shllt.

whoever this kehoe character is that cane fans keep referring too is a complete douche. why would you spend your time on cane boards anyway? three years? god damn, get a life. Now, I'm going to be forced to leave this place because of the canes that are pissed off at you. shyt, reading your babble for three years would turn any sane man into a crazy one.

where is adam S??

all the good posters ARE GONE because of your BS. you shouldn't consider your self a GATOR fan. YOU ARE A DISGRACE TO GATOR NATION. Go Gators!

Nice try fake gator ( SCUMBAG)

Please do "leave" fakey. Your nothing more than a SCUMBAG who makes jokes about Meyers serious health conditions.

ooops wisconsin whoop Ur


ahhhhhhhhhhhh ... 9-4

I will answer you Cane Clown, one by one:

1. What do Gators fans have to look foward to?

A ton of athletes and top recruits coming back and getting their chance to shine. Starting with John Brantely, former Gatorade National Player of the year who has been in the system 3 years now and should step in brilliantly. What do you think we lose all of our depth because a few guys graduate? Those top 3 recruiting classeas aren't going anywhere. That's the difference between a PROGRAM and a lucky year where you get 6 players from Northwestern. We repeatedly recruit and cultivate/maximize our talent. We will still be preseason top 5 next year, deal with it.

2. What program is in better condition going foward?

Are you serious with this one? Have you seen your recruiting class this year? There are zero impact players, mostly 2 and 3 stars. What a joke. You guys lose 4 games in a year (not to mention in that crappy basketball conference where your champs Georgia Tech get smoked by a middle of the pack SEC East team, Georgia -- that the Gators embarassed by the way) and throw a party. You know what would happen at Florida if we lost 4 games? Rioting on the streets.

3. Who has a better chance of contending for a conference or national championship next year?

See response to #2 above. Do you fail to realize that we have 2nd and 3rd stringers that would be MVPs on your team (Jelani Jenkins, Bostic, Dee Finley, Brantley, Gary Brown, Omar Hunter, Andre Debose, James Wilson, etc.)


4. What coaching staff has the most stability?

OK, maybe for now I can see your point here. But how much longer do you think Randy Shannon is going to be around when the best he can muster is a 4 loss season. Donna Umpa Lumpa Shalayla didn't look too happy in the stands yesterday as Wisconsin was slapping you around like a bunch of putas.

5. What team has more key players returning?

Who are these key players you are talking about? None of them have done anything. Your team is just not that good and will probably end up unranked? Who knows how many of our juniors come back and the guys that have been waiting for their opportunity will emerge, as they always do, it's FLORIDA...that's what we do.


6. Who has the most to gain from their bowl games?

I guess this question is kind of moot after yesterday. How you get pushed around by a bunch of midwest hicks is beyond me. No heart. Way to send off the seniors on a high note.


7. Does a bowl game vs. a coachless (most likely out of the top 25 next year) Cincy really matter?

Yes, a BCS bowl game against an undefeated and top 5 team does matter. First of all, it is economically very significant. That BCS money helps pay for our superior facilities etc. It certainly is better than getting embarassed in your home state by 25th ranked Wisconsin. Are you serious with these questions? It's Tebow's last game, another great chance to showcase the most dominant program in the country and to show the SEC dominance over other conferences. Get serious.

8. Even if you win that game, what does it do for your program?

It builds momentum. We finish 13-1 for the 3rd time in 4 years. Finish #2 in the country probably, no lower than #3. It shows that we can overcome all these distractions. Do you think all of those things are insignificant?


9. What is your outlook for next season?

We expect to compete for the SEC as always, still loaded with top tier talent. Same as every year. Feel really good about our QB.

10. Of your games @ Tenn., @ Bama, and @ FSU, how many do you expect to win?

I expect to win 2 out of 3. No way FSU beats us. Tennesse will be a tough game but we will still be favored. Alabama will be very difficult in Tuscaloosa but we have the revenge factor.

Bottom line is that our programs are on different hemispheres. You don't have as good a players, you play in a weaker conference, your coach can't coach and you simply don't have the resources to compete with us. It's that simple.

Go Gators.

P.S. slow day at work, otherwise I would have ignored this and laughed as some of these questions are truly comical.

Miami gets Badgered in the Chumps Bowl!! That's okay, there's always the past!! THAT"S ALL THEY GOT!!!

the silence is deafening. Canes Canes come out wherever you are!
