Gators fall to No.6 despite road wins at Miami

GAINESVILLE -- Here's an example of just how competitive college baseball can be in the state of Florida. The Gators won two of three games this weekend at Miami's Mark Light Field but fell one spot in the national rankings thanks to Florida State.

Florida was ranked No.6 nationally by Baseball America on Monday. FSU was No.5 and Miami was No.20. The Gators (7-2) lost to Florida State early last week and FSU (10-0) swept Georgia this weekend.

Congrats to UF sophomore Tommy Toledo, who pitched five scoreless innings on Sunday against the Canes. Toledo, a promising right-hander out of high school, missed all of 2009 with a shoulder injury. After surgery and nearly a year of rehab, Toledo is back on the mound and has a 2-0 record in three starts. He leads the UF pitching staff in innings pitched (13.2) and strikeouts (16) and has a 1.98 ERA.

Florida senior centerfielder Matt den Dekker of Fort Lauderdale currently leads the team with a .409 batting average.

How cute, real fake real Sarasota has a mancrush on Urban. U would fire your sorry mumbling coach tonight if U could have Urban.

Too bad, Ur STUCK with Marble Mouf.

Sukkkkkkkks to be []__[]

Nice Try "D" bag.

We all know we would fire Marble Mouf TONIGHT if we could get a coach like Urban on board.

Unfortunately we are stuck with Sir Mumbles.

To bad urbie can't enjoy the meatloaf 2 nite. Had a bit of a setback and he's not allowed to use silverware for a week.

We don't have a sound running defense...did you see the bowl game?

Any bets out there, on who goes 2 Omaha, MIAMI or U of FELONs.
and while we're at it, any bets on who'll have a better record next season..
Made alot of money betting against the GAtors.

I'll bet the canes use excuses like we are young, it was cold, and the sound the aluminum bats make scares us.

Just like football, baseball is a topic u gators should stay away from.

Congrats on your 2-1 series. Now get back to the stats that matter.

NC's & $$$. You gator might not know this, but players earn salaries in the MLB and NFL. Don't worry, one day you'll find out. Maybe Haden will see a paycheck before he's deemed a bust.

Funny da U either speaks of the past or of the future of their players. Never the present.

the ball was wet
Japicky's arm hurt

You can make fun of UM but I truly believe that injuries were the single greatest reason why UM faded down the stretch but Manny and Shandell reported it as questioning Shannon's ability to lead the team. It sells more papers and it generates more "hits" on their "D" Bag blogs.

Go 'canes!

and what's ur head coaches excuse for being in rehab (opps, I mean on vacation);
ohhhhhhh, i can't handle success so give me a prozac, give me an ambien, give me a drink..

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1bMs04JK0BQ

Ha ha that's funny. Sarasota and the fakes are clowns but they do bring the comedy.

OK Dumb Cane Tards ... Ur lesson of the day.

"LOOSE" is what Ur jaw and lips do when U constantly rehash the Cane long forgotten glory days of 15-25 years ago.

"LOSE" is what Duh U has done the last times U played the Gators in Baseball, Basketball and Football most RECENTLY.

We own the Canes in baseball, basketball and football. I can't wait for SCUM to come to G'ville; can you say smack-down;-)

mom the meatloaf has gotten infinitely funnier.

Nice try "D" bag!

Go 'canes!

Hey GAtor fan, don't tell anybody I'm on the clinics computer. But I ran in2 this guy in the hallways, he was in a straight jacket, and he was saying, I'm urbin myers the head coach at UF and mumbling 'what am i goin 2 do without timmy, what am i goin do without timmy.
I THOUGHT HE WAS ON VACATION??

Look, Tiger has a mancrush on Urban. Cute. Too bad Randy won't be around when Urban humiliates UM again in 13. But I'm sure WHIPPLE will be able to play chess with Meyer.

Whining about a field goal hurt U more than U will ever know U recruiting loser.

UF will easily win more games that scUM will in 2010.

U gots no depths canefan.

Great work "Fakey" and "Meatloaf"! You two have done more to destroy your teams blog in one day than I could have done in a week!

Talk about an "inside job"! UF fan(atics) are destroying the UF blog to spite 'cane fan!

Classic! Keep up the good work!

Go 'canes!

The only thing that is getting "destroyed" is YOU dumbazz

lmao

crater face 86 spends his life patrolling that dumb back slapping homer blog. Sad.

And you spend your life patrolling all of the blogs. Sad(der).

Randy Shannon gets more scrutiny because he is black. Anyone scrutinizing Mack Brown for his use of timeouts?

Huh????????????

Oh well, I'm sure Jo is happy to have the hits! Keep it real (Crappy!)!

Go 'canes!

You wrote that garbage on canespace:

" I know, Randy does not know how to use his timeouts...or does he? How do we know what would have happened had he not used them? Why is no one jumping on Mack Brown for the way he handled the clock at the end of the regular season? Maybe because he's white? I have never seen a coach so cloesly scrutinized as Shannon
P.S.S. If Urban Meyer has a phony nervous breakdown, or if a UF player gets arrested, or if UF loses the biggest game in state history, then I'm going to go to Gator Clause and have a laugh, or three. There is nothing wrong (IMO) with poking fun at a rival on a public forum."

33 posts and only one comment pertains to the subject of the blog jo posted. Hope gator fans are enjoying this. I dont care if they had to moderate some of the cane sites at least we dont have to put up with this crap anymore.

Posted by: Sarasota 'cane | March 09, 2010 at 02:20 PM

Make that 1 in 34 posts.

Canes Fans,

I have to applaud you for your determination - your basketball, football and baseball teams all stink, are 3rd or 4th best in the state, yet you still have the wherewithall to show up and contribute on blogs. Its got to be tough with nothing much of substance to say, especially since UM hasn't been relevant since Bananarama's last hit song in the 80s. But hey, I know all about that.

No shyt psycho!

My "Huh?" was directed at your stalking mentality.

A 5 day old post from a rival blog, CREEPY!

Go 'canes!

Sarasota, Let this doooshbag desecrate his own teams blog all he wants. He cant do it at the cane blogs because no one pays him any attention anymore. I for one think its funny as hell.

The meatloaf stuff never ever gets old. I picture Sarasota exactly like that. What a geek.

Sarasota, what are you wearing?

Come up with something new.

Gators are better than UM at basketball, baseball and football. We all knew this day would come. Big publicly funded university against a small rinky dinky community college disguised as a university funded by guys on the Jersey Shore.

Your time came and went Candycanes. A new era is here. Raise your glasses(or your 40 ouncer in the case of hurricane fans) and bid farewell to the Canes and toast the sports machine in Gainesville.


And as your school leader would say, if you are going to have the taco, you might as well go with the fish ones.

play ball

Canefan rocked those vidz all night long. It helps them reconnect with the long lost feelings of relevancy.

If U yell SWAGGER enough times it helps too.

Wisconsin felt the SWAG

Collective Canefan has lost his collective mind. All the bruthas are defending Capt. Clueless over at SS. It's pretty obvious that Gator Nation completely owns that foamy canesrule creep.

A UM fan on a UM blog discussing the UM coach finds it impossible to stay on topic and strays off into trolling UF on the MIAMI site. Sad. Very sad.

The Gators own your every waking thought canesrule. U got bed thinking about the Gators and U wake up thinking about the Gators.

We got a five star, we got a five star! They do matter now that we got a five star!

Do you really know how stupid you are? The only posts you have made on this blog has been arguing with cane fans and you say all they think about is the Gators. Why dont you try posting something informative about your own team instead of bantering with trolls? You have it all wrong buddy. Seems to me the canes are in your head every waking moment of your life!

SwampThing,

What is between 4 and 6? That's right 5! As in Da U just got a 5 star! We should go undefeated and bring back the glory of DA U. 6 NCS to da gators 3!!!

IT's all about da u.

SwampThings, You hit the nail on the head with this guy. He talks about A cane fan making A comment on A cane blog that he is trolling and he thinks that person has lost his mind? I would also guess the canesrule posts above are him pretending to be A cane fan. Is this guy even a Gator fan? My guess is that he is A delusional whack job and not a Gator fan at all. Go Gators!

Posted by: Dan | March 10, 2010 at 10:17 AM

Amen!

Do us all A favor fake Gator fan and go argue with Cane fans on their blogs. You need to get A pet or something to fill the void in your life.

Getting called out, huh "D" Bag!

Your ruining your own blog - way to go! The canes are always in your head like meatloaf in mine

Go canes!

Yes, I really saw things falling apart, so I had to make sure UM got their one 5-star recruit. Good thing he fell for my "promise to rap on my next album" I've used that on dumb UM recruits for years now and they still don't get that I'm washed up. But I gave him a little "Mayo" on the side (shhhh, don't tell USC, they're investigating him....)

I cant believe what this blog has come to. It would be nice to come on here and read insightful information about the Gators. Instead we get this. Thanks for the update Luther but I could care less what you have to say. Go troll the cane boards with this stuff. Oh thats right you probably cant after getting banned from those sites so you drag it in here. Get lost loser!

Oh so now that UF fan has to deal with "D" Bag on a daily basis, he's now a fake Gator fan???? Classic!!! UF fan was all too happy to have this moron ruin our blogs for the last 3 years. At least he's home now!

Get used to him Gator fan, HE'S ALL YOURS!!!

Go 'canes!

I meant to say "we" have to deal with him on a daily basis because I like to go to Gator Clause and have a laugh, or three because I can't live without Gator Clause.

I doubt very seriously he is A gator fan. More like a deranged stalker. Regardless he needs to take this garbage some place other than here. The guy obviously has some serious issues.

Posted by: Dan | March 10, 2010 at 06:44 PM

Gator fan or not this guy is wacho!!!!!

How many times are you going to post the Will Farrel clip? It might have been funny the first time but come on man. Talk about beating A dead horse. Crawl back under the rock you came out of.

Forgot to congratulate former Gator Carlos Villegas this week for his win at the Honda Classic and will be rooting for him in person this weekend.

Gator succes everywhere!

Camilo Villegas

gators are better in every game and will definitely reach higher level soon. very interesting blog and keep updating us on this.
