Everybody knows that... Just needs to take some personal time and relax a little... The pressure on this team to win it all extremely high... 2 titles in four years.... Coaching one of the top five best college football players of all time... Overall, take some time off, addazio will due fine... Brantlys time to step up, with the speedy backs as well...let's go and play well against the natti and gives these all time winning seniors a victory to end their story book careers...

God Bless Urban Meyer..He is the Best...
Go Gators!

Urban Liar!!! Doing what he does best, scheme and deceive. Nothing but a loser!! Don't tempt the hand of GOD like that Urban. You will pay the ultimate price for LIES!!!!!!!!

That's right jpuck, just a little time to contemplate the greatest loss in state history!

If Meyer almost died from one loss this season, what do you think he's going to do next season when he loses 4+ games?

Don't worry though, that nut job is just saying he's coming back to try to salvage the recruit's!

Go 'canes!

Jpuck04,

Just needs to take some personal time and relax a little? The guy resigned as head coach of the University of Florida football team five days before the Sugar Bowl.

Jo,

Read the 911 call from Meyer's wife.

1) She admits he has anxiety

2) She thought he was having a heart attack at 430 AM and called 911

3) His heart has checked out fine

4) If you know anything about anxiety (interview a psychiatrist) these people truly believe their heart or something worse is terribly wrong.

If you were in a very high stress job and head chest pains for years and your wife called 911 at 430 AM to be rushed to the hospital by ambulance because she and you thought you were having a heart attack, I am sure you might retire too. That is a life changing event. Then he finds out multiple times his heart is fine. (i.e. IT ISNT HIS HEART). It is just anxiety and he just needs to manage it better. Stress triggers it.

That is the best news I have heard about his health. Now I know he will be fine and why he is returning to the team in August if not before.

A lot of people suffer from anxiety and some of these people over exaggerate "normal" physiologic symptoms, which makes the anxiety, chest pains, shortness of breath, tingling, worse. It is a vicious cycle.

WIsconsin called, they said they would like to play a real team in Florida next year and not the bunch of girls they beat up on Tuesday.

They said Jacory has cute hair, and he tries real hard, and like that eventhough he leads all of FBS in INTs that he always runs hard on and off the field.

They also said Marcus Forston is the biggest bust they have ever seen, Sean Spence is invisible, that #6 of the Canes was basically a pancake for most of the game, Leonard Hankerson will be a great player in the Lingerie league, and Lamar Miller didnt do a good job keeping the bench warm.

HATE, HATE, HATE.....I LOVE IT! PUNA AND SARASOTA, WHAT WOULD YOU SAY IF URBAN MEYER IS LEAVING UF AND GOING TO MIAMI BECAUSE IT IS LESS EXPECTATIONS? HE WOULD BE THE GREATEST THING IN THE WORLD! YOUR GUYS WOULD KISS HIS A@#! YOU DO NOT HAVE ONE SHRED OF EVIDENCE THAT HE LIED, OR DID ANYTHING WRONG! ON THE CONTRARY,EVERYBODY WHO KNOWS HIM SAYS NOTHING BUT GOOD THINGS.

LOOK, I AM SORRY UM DIDNT SHOW UP FOR THE GAME AGAINST THE W. I FEEL BAD FOR YOU GUYS. I FEEL BAD FOR SHANNON. I THINK HE IS A GOOD GUY. BUT NIT A GREAT COACH. HE IS ON THE JOB TRAINING. BUT DONT BE MAD AT US. BE MAD AT THE UM ADMINISTRATION. THEY HAVE ALMOST NO COMMITMENT TO WIN. YOU HAVE THE TALENT IN YOUR BACK YARD, BUT YOU DO NOT HAVE A STADIUM, THE FACILITIES AND MOST OF ALL...THEY WILL NOT PAY THE $ FOR A TOP COACH....SO IT WILL ALWAYS BE A COACHING CAROSEL. UM HAS HAD 6 COACHES IN 25 YEARS! THEY WIN, AND THEN MOST OF THEM LEAVE FOR MORE MONEY! THAT IS WHY SCHNELLENBERGER, JOHNSON AND BUTCH LEFT. AND IF BY SOME CHANCE SHANNON WINS, HE WILL LEAVE TOO, BECAUSE SOME SCHOOL WILL ALWAYS OFFER ALOT MORE THAN UM. ITS ALWAYS GOING TO BE A ROLLERCOASTER RIDE.

SAD BUT TRUE. THATS WHY ITS GREAT TO BE A FLORIDA GATOR! THE TOTAL PACKAGE, FOR $100/ PER SEMESTER HOUR! VS. UM $1500/ SEMESTER HOUR!

GOD BLESS URBAN MEYER!

Jacory Harris called and asked if he could go back to high school and beat up on the rich, weak, slow schools, that made him look good instead of having to play D-1 college with a bunch of girls for teammates!

Sean Spence? What happened to him? That dude was invisible.

Marcus Forston? Dude is a girl. Gets hurt more than Melvin Bratton.

Leonard Hankerson? Should he even announced he is not going pro? Wake up Leonard! You arent that good to begin with. You are going to have trouble making the CFL!

Jaavaris James? You aint your brother! You better hope your brother can support you because you aint playing football past college.

Jacory harris? Will he even be a starting QB next year? Hit a squat rack or a bench press one time? You have the body framework of one of the Olsen twins (the one with the eating disorder).

I'll give it to you guys, I'm just as disappointed about the game as any Canes fan.

However, it does not change the fact that your program is on the decline and will be worst that the U next year.

And don't hang your hat on this year, b/c u guys pulled the biggest choke job in FL history.

STABILITY: remember that word? Time to look in the mirror.

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?

I admit, Question #6 is nullified now. The other 9 look pretty interesting though. Can a Gator fan please answer in munerical order please?

1) A great team returning with John Brantley at the helm (much better QB than Jacory. Yes it is true eventhough it pains you. Jacory led all of FBS in INT's this year and thats not including the 100s of INTs that were dropped--see Duke game, and not including all the fumbles he had). The Gators currently have the #1 recruiting class according to ESPN and the #3 according to rivals---canes not even top 10 on rivals.

2) The Gators have Urban Meyer who is one of if not the best coach in the country. We have lost some coordinators and coaches due to the enormous success we have had to other coaching positions. The Canes on the other hand have Randy Shannon who is arguably one of the worst coaches in college football. Randy Shannon has gotten a coach on his staff fired/or coaches have left every year he has been at the helm. See last year when the OC was fired and the DC took off because he saw how inept Shannon was.
The Gators have lost one game in the past 23 games and that was to a team that may win the National Championship. We did not lose to a pathetic team like Wisconsin, or even North Carolina.
Cincy is undefeated and ranked #4 (higher than the Canes and will finish higher than the Canes this year) and not a barely top 25 Wisconsin team.
The outlook for next season for the Gators is still good and the Gators will be ranked AHEAD of the Canes to start the season in the AP and coaches poll.
Out of the games you listed, I expect the Gators to go 2-1 out of Tenn, Bama, and FSU. Sure the Gators play in a tough conference but they should contend to go to Atlanta. The Canes on the other hand cant even make it to the ACC title game in the weakest conference in the country. They are a program in disarray. Their coaches cannot develop players nor do they have anything promising on the OL/DL. It is the same story for the past few years. No OL/DL. Randy Shannon has neglected these areas in his recruiting. Furthermore, there is no other QB besides Jacory (if you can call Jacory a QB). The Canes are a mess. That loss to a slow, Wisconsin team was devastating and shows just how far Miami has to go before they can even be serious about contending for anything.

3)Neither will contend for a national title but UF will hang around.UM not a chance. Conference title is a push.

4)stability? you're kidding right? UF has best coach in nation with top class. One guy left in lateral move. Another took HC job just like last year. UM has a lame duck coach with an assistant carousel. Not even close.

5) you have more key players returning but we have better players returning. FACT

6) most to gain from bowl games? It's moot since you got beaten like stepchildren. Sugar is much more glamorous than t-shirts. WE DO

7)does playing a slow cheese team really matter. It does when you're getting drilled like an oil field.

8) winning the Sugar bowl shows the enormous audience a quality team. Unlike a lame tuesday bowl that half of your "fan base" misses because they're busy working at retail stores.

9)Our outlook is much like yours. Compete for a conference title. you embarrass yourself talking about the NC when you're a middle of the pack ACC team

10)2-1, 10-2

Florida has a whole bunch of talent returning. Florida develops young players unlike UM. Florida has a much brighter outlook for next year. UM will predictably set unrealistic goals and get hammered early. Your president and AD understand that you aren't NC caliber any longer.

The 'canes fans on this blog are frauds. I don't know of any 'canes fans personally (I've been in S. Fla for 30 years) who go above and beyond to trash another program.

Perhaps their effort and focus would be better spent finding UM's most famous alumn Paul Mehrige. There certainly aren't very many UM alumns out there...don't they all stick together?

You just lost to Wisconsin. Your only joy this season was to turn on the Gators every single week to hope they lose, but they had an undefeated regular season.
Canes? Cant even go undefeated during their conference play, and their conference is beyond WEAK.
They just got beat up bad by a WEAK big 10 conference team.

Canes schedule next year

AT OHIO STATE---the #1 big ten team not some middle of the pack big ten team

AT PITTSBURGH---they have a RB that will make that Wisoncsin RB look like a girl. They will demolish that WEAK Miami DL

AT GEORGIA TECH---SEE ABOVE

Virginia Tech---better hope it doesnt rain..abwahahahaaha...they beat you like a drum this year and will beat you even worse next year

Dont forget tough teams like Wake Forest, Clemson, and crappy North Carolina.

Undefeated next year????? KOOOOOOL AID!!!
Worrying about Florida, Alabama, and Texas???

Just try and stay above Duke next year, then next year will be a success for dah U!!!

THAT RECEIVER FROM CINCINNATI SEEMS MORE OF A MATURE MAN THAN THE WHOLE FLORIDA TEAM-EVEN TEBOW

I ALMOST FORGOT- FUC RICOPUTO

What a nut case...

Jo, the sugar bowl is ab exhibition game, there only one bowl game that matters all year. The rest of bcs =$, all the other bowls is for gambling and vacationing. Urban needed to re focus and attempt to calm done his intensity for health reasons.

Wow,

Clem. beats KU, V.T. is beating TN and now we lost are best 5 star recruit Elam to Fla ST.

What else can go wrong?

Don't look, but haven't hit bottom as yet.

Meyer's wife told the dispatcher that she could not wake her husband because he had taken an Ambien. She also said that he was making "grunting" sounds, and she thought he was crying in his sleep! Case closed! Does anyone think the UF doctors would let Meyer coach the Sugar Bowl if there was REALLY anything wrong with him? OF COURSE NOT!

What a Puss!

To all recruit's and their parents: If Meyer shuts it down after ONE loss this season, what size straight jacket will they need to get him when UF loses 4+ games next season? The guy is so confused right now that he has turned himself into a lameduck coach regardless of his "real" intentions.

Happy New Year Kehoe, Alan M., Gator "D" Bag from Pinecrest, and all you other fools who think this chicken shyt is going to somehow turn into chicken salad by signing day!

Go 'canes!

go canes

matt elam decommits.
just the 1st of many meth heads. get used 2 it..
why would any1 want 2 go 2 that train wreck..

And our recruiting class still smokes that krap shannon is putting together by a mile. Go check the updated ESPN rankings you envious losers. Turn into chicken salad? Thats more UM style loser. We're STILL filet mignon.

Nix, Dent, Cook, Marve, Smith. PLAYERS and recruits are bailing on that shyt dump daily. U live in a glass house fool.

Gators own your every waking thought.

U GO TO BED THINKING ABOUT THE GATORS AND WAKE UP THINKING ABOUT THE GATORS

Of course Canes have "coaching stability," who would hire any of your coaches away from you?

coordinator changes at UM five years running. Stability? U clown.

BEST TEAM OF THE DECADE ACCORDING TO SPORTS ILLUSTRATED IS;
THAT'S RIGHT SPORTS FAN,
THE 2001 MIAMI HURRICANES.
16 1ST ROUND DRAFT PICKS.
10 FUTURE ALL-PROS.

THAT'S THIS DECADE METH HEADS.
NOT ANCIENT HISTORY LIKE U METH HEADS LIKE 2 TALK ABOUT.

At Pitt, at O State and at G. Tech; a schedule that the Gaytors will never have. The "U" ain't afraid to play anybody, anywhere and at anytime!!!!

I have 2 cupcakes before we play Tenn. Ga. will be rebuilding, Tenn. even said it will be a step back from this year before they get better, So. carolina-enough said, Vandy, more brains than muscle. With this easy schedule, I know I can come back,no shirt, no shoes, no problem. Urban

TWO decades-ONE 'ship, that's U!
