Gator Clause takes a break to cover effects of oil spill

NEW ORLEANS -- Surely you've wondered where Goody has been hiding. Well, I've been busy. Gator Clause is taking a break until next week and will return next Tuesday with coverage from the Southeastern Conference spring meetings in Destin.

The editorial board has been all over the last three weeks: Panama City; Odessa, Texas; and now southern Louisiana. We're covering the affects of the oil slick in the Gulf of Mexico. Here are some links of our efforts, stories and videos. We'll be in Louisiana through the weekend.

UF Wins SEC All-Sports Title ... AGAIN


Florida left little doubt which school had the best athletic program for the 2009-10 school year.

2. Georgia 133 16 8.31

2. Georgia 83 9 9.22
3. LSU 78.5 9 8.72

The Gators blew away the field thanks to seven SEC titles and a strong performance by its men's programs to win the SEC All-Sports trophy for the 20th time. The award is sponsored by the New York Times Regional Media Group, which includes 14 newspapers throughout the Southeastern United States including The Gainesville Sun. NYTRMG awards trophies to the league school which captures each of those three all-sports titles. A first-place SEC finish is worth 12 points, second is given 11 points, and so on.

The sports of cross country, indoor and outdoor track & field are combined. A program's outdoor track finish makes up half, while the remaining two quarters are based on the cross country and indoor finishes. A school's point total is divided by the number of sports it fields to arrive at the average.

NYTRMG took over coordination of the SEC All-Sports rankings in 1994-95. Prior to that, the league tabulated the SEC All-Sports totals.

Florida's average for its 16 sports (nine women, seven men) was 10.19 to easily outdistance second-place Georgia (8.31). Tennessee was third followed by LSU, Auburn and Ole Miss. Mississippi State finished the year with the lowest showing among SEC schools.

Florida's men finished their year with an average of 10.79 to second-place Mississippi's 7.92 average. UF's women had a tougher battle edging out Georgia 9.72 to 9.22.

It was the 10th sweep for the Gator athletics program. UF is the only school to collect all three titles in a single season.

For the women it was their 17th title and for the men their 14th.

Florida's SEC titles came in baseball, women's cross country, gymnastics, soccer, women's tennis, women's indoor track & field and men's outdoor track & field. This is the third

time UF has collected seven SEC titles in a single season (1996-97 and 1997-98). UF's highest total is eight (1991-92) and Georgia equaled the SEC record with eight titles in 2005-06.

Florida has won 20 of the last 23 All-Sports awards.

OK Cane Tards ... Time to Spew Ur Pollution.

Congrats on the NCAA tennis title turd tards. Oh wait, whats that, you lost to Stanford. Just like the football team, so close yet so far away.

Having jo cover the oil spill in the gulf is a perfect match. After all he reports on one disaster after another while covering the gators.

OK Cane Tards ... Time to Spew Ur Pollution.

Posted by: Proverbial ACC Cellar Dwellers ...U STILL SUCK ... | May 26, 2010 at 06:30 AM

right on cue......

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

annnnnd []__[] still sukkkkkkkkkkk

Jo-

Good luck with report - the Gulf Coast needs all the help we can get. Also, do you think the 'canes will use the oil spill as an excuse as they have youth, cold weather, and injuries in the past when they start off 1-3?

Go Tigers!

Jo - any chance some of these misguided hacks that call themselves Turd fans can be utilized for something remotely resembling productive...like wearing orange & blue striped jump suits and shoveling oil slicks into garbage bags? At least they'd feel like their scumbag ballers, who already sport their real uni's while picking trash & butts from the highways.

Jo -

Do you think Urbie will play the "oil slick" card when the Hatter crushes the Turds this year? Personally, I expect the excuses to flow early and often as they return to where they're most comfortable...the middle of the pack.

Geaux Tigers!!

Jo-

Is there any chance the government will move the displaced fisherman from the gulf to seats in Sun Life for Cane games? This would enable BP to utilize the enormous tarps covering the seats to protect the seashore all the while giving the fisherman a comedic reprieve from the disaster when the watch Randy call time-outs. Scientist should also be in attendance as they can study the aerodynamics of Jacory's ducks and measure against oil soaked birds.

Posted by: Bobby Jindal | May 26, 2010 at 09:16 AM

So let me get this straight turd tard. Yesterday you were posing as a cane fan making light of a gator players death and today you are posing as the mayor. I know you have lead a tragic life and desperatly wish you were someone else but your setting the bar a little to high. Try starting out as someone more on your level. That way your not setting yourself up for failure. I have a suggestion.....


http://www.imdb.com/character/ch0029616/bio


He often plays the sidekick to the rest of the Looney Tunes.

No idea what your talking about from yesterday. Bobby Jindal is actually the governor of Louisiana. Maybe you have another mayor on your mind, tubby.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e4JgvTOdhtQ

Governor, mayor, you get the point. A fat ass loser like yourself pretending to be something you will never attain is plain sad. I know your mom did not pay you any attention as she was always working the "late" shift but there has to be another way. Did you ever get your toaster out of pawn so you dont have to eat your pop tarts cold?

No idea what your talking about from yesterday.


Sure you dont " Governor "

"A fat ass loser like yourself pretending to be something you will never attain is plain sad"

Interesting. USE YOUR REAL NAME THEN and stop hiding behind your cute little jabs that are really not funny. We will all google/facebook/LinkedIn it and see how much of a douche you really are. I dare you coward. No UM Grad spends this much time on a blog all day everyday. You are the one living the sad life. Now scurry back behind your grandmother's skirt and hide.

It's really easy to hide behind the keyboard. Go ahead and use your real name junior. Tell us about your great life.

I could truly care less about all the personal attacks and cowardice.

In the end, UM has a seriously bad athletics program. They are strangled with debt. They don't win any longer. College athletics has passed them by.

Posted by: Erik Rullman | May 26, 2010 at 10:50 AM

Looks like someone has their panties in a wad. You better simmer down before you stroke out porky. So you go from mayor to governor to rullman? No I dont post my name on here, who does? But I definatly dont pretend to be someone who I am not!

Posted by: It's Porky Rullman then?

Just what I thought. You really have a sad and pathetic life.

Larry, couldn't agree more.

Don't listen to larry eric. Everyone knows that 5 > 3 and one win against the mighty Canes in 24 years is nothing to puff your chest out about.

Wait, silly me. I get it now. larry and eric are one in the same. There could'ent be more than one delusional turd tard out there. Our could there?

Posted by: He is who i thought he was, or are they

Gawd - you're life is worthless! Yes, it's a conspiracy Mulder. Everyone on here is one person against you, the almighty jobless basement dweller cane protector.

And you thinking only one Cane fan posts on this blog shows how delusional you are cracker jack. I live in South Florida by the way. They dont put basements in houses in South Florida just like they dont put basements in trailers in gainesville.

Oh where Oh where will the turds be, after we whip the Buckeyes and take over the state again with the highest ranking.

From Cane in Gainesville, you turds couldnt fight your way out of a wet paper bag. Big boys behind keyboards though.

All of you would wet your pants on 62nd street and I95 after dark, stay in gainesville wusses

Sorry loser, I am not "Erik." Nice try dooooooosh bag. I AM LARRY.

Who cares, in the end the most PATHETIC name ever used is when u posted as UMASSCANEFAN in a sad attempt to prop up Whipple. You are pathetic canesrule.

How's the job search going? You'll never find work when you spend your entire day obsessing about the Gators.

That porky pig thing chaffed your ass I see. Dont take it personal. I apologize for all the kids that made you eat boogers in school. That was just plain wrong!

Posted by: Larry | May 26, 2010 at 11:49 AM

You had me fooled you rascal.

Smoke weed boys and you wont play!!
cough cough BS!!!

Posted by: Larry | May 26, 2010 at 11:49 AM

And by the way thanks for proving my point dooshbag. I guess the post at 11:23 was not dripping with enough sarcasm for you. It went over your head like the ball used to in little league. That is when the coach put you in for the 1 inning he was obligated to.

Well at least da Was is back in the national press.....

The MMS is the Federal agency that controls oversight of all U.S. natural resources in the Gulf of Mexico and accounts for $14 billion per year in revenues from Federal offshore mineral leases.

The MMS, which is part of the Department of Interior, was found to have employees “accepting gifts from oil companies” that included private jet travel, hunting and fishing trips, Christmas parties and “even free tickets to see Louisiana State University beat the University of Miami in the 2005 Peach Bowl in Atlanta.”


whipple DID afterall reduce sacks by 70% at D-2 UMASS ...so there.

and then there's this little gem...

"I would not want to jinx it, but my bold prediction is Wall is a Cane.

Small classes, the weather, facilities, everything seems right and coach Haith,” Wall is reported to have told the AP, or was it Reuters.
The City Beautiful rejoices." - canesrule

The facilities??? John Wall gives a shyt about "small classes?" Haith is a joke...LIKE U CLOWNSRULE...now GET BACK TO JOBS.COM u unemployed LOSER.

Maybe U don't have any sense of self worth since your ring of honor is removeable plastic.
Will the sports teams have to buy season passes for the buses this season?
Will Ross chuckle to himself everytime the 25k in attendance shell out 25bucks for a parking spot in an EMPTY lot?
Will Randy continue to embarrass himself and show how completely unqualified he is to be a head coach?
Will 'cane fan think it's cute and creative to say "WHIP IT" after a win?
Will Beanpole make it through the season intact?
Will U have special teams that are laughably bad like every year?
Will your secondary be scared yet again of collisions with large running backs?
When will the SIGNATURE blowout loss come in 2010?
Will we ever hear another peep out of cane fan about basketball? DEAD LAST IN THE ACC
Will Randy have a hissy fit when opponents kick field goals?
Will the oline face murder charge in connection with JaPicky's beheading in 2010?
Will U continue to end comments by saying," Dau U" which sound JUST LIKE " Duh U" ?
Will Donna continue to not care one iota if U EVER win another championship in ANYTHING?
Will Joe Zagaki learn how to not sound like a clod?
Will 'cane fan continue to think that the national media hates them? Laughable.
Will 'cane blogger continue to think that personally attacking anonymous commenters is funny? (canesrule the rotund pillow biter)
Will the perennial underachieving backfield continue to flounder behind that laughable O-line?
Will any cane football player show some sack and actually get stronger or maybe even faster?
Who will carry the torch for Matt "swinging gate" Pipho?

U have a lot of splainin to do bloodied cane fan. In the mean time shut your ignorant pie holes.

Posted by: Marve WILL win the Heisman too | May 26, 2010 at 01:04 PM

LMFAO, Your head is going to explode. I AM NOT CANESRULE! Your on the wrong blog dooshbag. Unlike you I do not pretend to be someone else who responds to his own posts. Sleep with the nite lite on after all you never know when a Cane blooger could be hiding under your bed....

DAMN.....

The only thing you've EVER knocked out is a bucket of KFC. That and a box of cold pop tarts.

Will you ever get off the Gator Blog and get a job?
Will you ever get a girlfriend?
Will you attend the FSU game when you are 1-3?

Now move along to another blog son before you get your ass kicked any worse.

This is too easy. You have to be out of school for the summer, right junior?

Man you cane fans are something. You're on the Gator Blog telling us how good you all used to be and taunting us with your 5 v 3 - good for you! With all that rich history, your coach re-signed, and you recruited what you needed - you should be on all the ACC Blogs scaring them. They're your competition! Here let me help you out:

Clemson - Revenge is a dish best served cold
Boston College - 5 rings, How you like dem apples?
FSU - FSWHO?
WAKE - You are at our house now. We are so loud you won't be able to audible

Wakey, wakey, hand off snakey turd tards. It's conference tournament time in baseball and the gators are in the LOSERS bracket after one game while the Canes CRUSHED FSU.
