Jo you have Kansas St. in the final over KU????? That's a stretch!

That's OK though, "Fakey" has UF beating K-St. in the next round! Talk about delusional!

Go 'canes!

Wow this is a bizzarro blog now.

Got to be different to win it, Sarasota.

Thanks for pointing out the obvious, Roadie.

-jo-

True dat! I think K St. beat KU earlier in the season, but most feel that was a blessing in disguise for KU.

Go 'canes!

32 with A sick cross - over. Blew bye Boynton.

amazing they are not calling the fouls inside like they are on the perimeter.

Still, lots of chances to win this thing not seized.

oh well


Go 'canes!

Great game!

Break out the victory cigars boys...the Mormans toasted up the Turds! Yes sir, one & done. God it's great to be a gatr hatr!

oh well

Go 'canes!

That is funny "Fakey"! I thought UF had it for a minute.

Go 'canes!

Man I'm just feeling better by the minute. Turds have a LLOOOONNNNGGGG flight home to Gaynesville. But, keep your chins up chumps...cheese grits at Waffle House on me tomorrow!

love the cane fans dogging us for losing...yet their team was home watching us play

GAYtors lose, GAYtors lose.
get used 2 it GAYtor fan, now that TEABAG's gone it's back 2 irrelevance..
it's good 2 c URBIN's back from REHAB (oops i mean vacation), & did u c urbie lookin 4 teabag (pretty sad).
nice tan urbin, (NOT). thought u were in tahiti or somewhere similar???

I wish u people would leave Mr. Myers alone. He needs alot of love and support with all that he's gone through and recovered from..
We've released him back into the public and I think he should be ok, unless he starts to win again (which he couldn't handle before). But we're pretty confident that with this years team that shouldn't be a problem..

_____________________________________________

That we were Richie, and might I add enjoying every minute of it, especially the end when you went down in flames. That part was my favorite Richie.

Well, I haven't checked in since after NSD and I can see nothing has changed here. Same group of losers, bashing the Gators for losing when there team wasn't even at the dance. But I am sure "that will help the canes more than we will ever know".

One thing is for sure and to be celebrated....HEEEEEEE'SSSS BBBBAAAAACCCCCCCKKKKKKK!!!!!! Coach Urban Meyer, true to his word, is coaching at spring practice. Thank you God. It's Great to Be A Gator!

Welcome back, Gator John. You're return coincides with Meyer's return. Coincidence?

-jo-

perfect...maybe we can haul both of them of in the same paddy wagon when the next meltdown begins.

You know why Urban has no pressure this year, NOBODY expects a title, he KNOWS there is a beating in Tuscaloosa coming. Its a little different than any game lost is a failure.
Be realistic, maybe he can enjoy football once again.

Florida is deeper than Bama "Bigger." U can't hide your stripes cane tard.

That game will be no more hostile than LSU 09.

Remember blind cane tard. Meyer and Saban are 1-1 head to head.

How's that lame duck coach of yours looking with his non existent contract? Did Coldcut require him to attend Timeout Management School before contract talks? He should.

By the way, U got HAMMERED in recruiting this cycle. Your product sukkkkkks

Remember blind cane tard. Meyer and Saban are 1-1 head to head.

That 32-13 beatdown Alabama gave the gators should count as two wins. Saban completely outcoached urban in that game. I thought that was supposed to be the best gator team of all time and it was not even close. Remember 14And0ToPasedenaWeGo. Turned out to be 13And1AlabamaBeatUsLikeADrun.

And that beatdown came with Turds getting all the calls from paid off SEC refs. Without the slush fund we're talking 45-0 easy.

but EVERYONE is expecting a cane title right???

lmao

Your QB is a joke

A true sophmore first year starter that threw for over 3,000 yards is A joke? What does that say about your clip board carrying QB. Even if Brantly can throw the ball whos going to catch it? The gators are in for A rude awakeaning this year. It is going to get UUUGLY!

but EVERYONE is expecting a cane title right???

An ACC title yes. A NC not so much. At least not this year.

jacory would have been a great wideout at UF..I'm wondering how long that pink suit is going to be waiting at the dry cleaners..

Posted by: chuck.zilla | March 19, 2010 at 01:17 PM


Funny thing is if he had he would be better than any wide out the gators have now!


Brantleys ducks? good one canefan

This guy is so used to watching wounded arm INT12 throw moonballs that he is now projecting his own QB's lame characteristics onto cannon arm JB. Don't fret canefan, INT12 doesn't have a prayer of lasting the season behind the Swiss (cheese)Army oline of yours.

Your collapse will have more fireworks than previous annual collapses. Ur actually thinking you're going to go somewhere behind J17 and Captain Clueless.

A true sophmore first year starter that threw for over 3,000 yards is A joke?

Yes dumb canefan...hes a JOKE. He led the NATION In picks, got sacked wayyy too much, locks on his receivers, can't run, makes horrible decisions, has way below D-1 average arm strength, limped to the end of the season battered and broken.

But he did throw for 3,000 yards.

Beanpole will go down in a pile of bones. U will hear the bones crunch through the buffering on JustinTv. The chain of events that will follow will get you where you have been working hard to get to for a while now

The QB,oline, and LB depth charts will be the undoing of the worst coach in the history of Duhhh U. It's amazing that he has disguised this for so long.

correction:

RanShan din't disguise squat against fat slow Whiskey.

And speaking of that, he got exposed by WAKE FOREST.

The sorry azzz Dukeys took U into duhh fourf quatta

Posted by: Your annual collapse will be SPECTACULAR | March 19, 2010

Nothing can compare to the collapse of the mighty gators against ALABAMA!

Coach having A nervous brekdown on the sidelines. Check.

QB crying on the sidelines while getting his head stroked. Check.

Gator fan getting drilled at haftime by A girl. Priceless.

Your head coach is mentally unstable. Your on your third D cordinator since the end of last season. Your O cordinator is terrible. (Whos gonna run the dive play for the hundreth time now). Your QB has never started A game and even if he had you gots nobody to catch it (Better hope Dubose stays healthy and he's never even stepped foot on the field).

I notice there's a lot of chatter on this Turd site about the Canes...about frickin' time we started talking about a REAL football dynasty.

two words delusional LOSERS

BEAN......and ........POLE
