« Meyer takes apparent shot at Canes fans' apathy and keeps UF students laughing at event | Main | Gators will begin the season with shifted offensive line; Plus plenty more great notes! »

And now it's time for audio of Gators assistant coach Steve Addazio giving UF students his famous pregame speech. Classic stuff!

GAINESVILLE -- So, here's pretty much the best thing that I've ever put on this blog. Below is an audio clip of UF offensive coordinator Steve Addazio giving an example of his pregame speech to about 500 UF students during the football team's town-hall meeting on Wednesday. Florida's football players refer to Addazio's speeches as shots of "Vitamin A."

It pretty much makes me want to run through a brick wall. Enjoy!

Jo Goody, still showing quality reporting skills, html skills, and a sense of humor.

I know Canes fans are accused of being jealous, but I will admit to being jealous of the quality of your reporter compared to Shandel Richardson.

Good thing Steve Gorten seems to be an improvement on our side. I hope you guys don't lose Joe Goody to the pros anytime soon.

Wow, had me pumped. Were going to go out on that field and take on Miami in front of 90,000 fans. If only when they came out of the tunnel it was the Hurricanes they were playing instead of Miami of Ohio. Makes it kind of anticlimactic.

and his "link" is to the plambeachpost (notice the misspelling).

"Im"?
"want's"?
"is raw"?

Priceless example of that "edumacation" provided to Powell that got him into UF, which is not even a Top 50 school.

Urban Liar walks up to Powell and says "Ronald, you need to pass our STRICT admission standards. What is 3 plus 3?" Powell answered "7?". Easley and Floyd said, "Coach, give him another chance!".

Urban Liar then says "Ronald, you need to PASS our strict admission standards. What is 2 plus 2?" Powell used his fingers, thought hard, and answered "4?". Easley and Floyd said, "Coach, give him another chance!"

“We want this to be one place that everybody wants to be. We don’t want to be like some of the schools in the state where half the stadium is empty…” – Urban Meyer

THE ULTIMATE INSULT

/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
Hey Swamp Donkey,

Maybe if Urban is nice, Randy will let him see what three NC rings looks like on one hand!

You can’t spell “Undefeated” without The “U”!

Go ‘canes!

P.S. Why do they call you “Swamp Donkey” Gator Troll?

Swamp Donkey: “Well I’m a little embarrassed to admit this, but let’s just say it has something to do with a “little” hazing ritual that the seniors put the freshmen through at UF! They say I was one of the best as a freshman! The only thing I’ll say here is that it is truly better to give, than to receive!”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donkey_punch

For those who don't have audio, let me transcribe what Addazio had to say today:

"Um...is this on...ummm...go...umm...Urban, help me out...oh yeah...go gater...!!...how's a...how's a everyone doing TODAY?...ummm...taffy is delicious...boy do I love taffy...NOW LET'S GET OUT THERE AND...um...go gater...(Loud reverb sound from a cheap microphone.)

Go 'canes!

Hey Meyer,

I could tell by your jab at "The U" today that you read every word of this shyt. Well what do you think? Be honest...those last two posts were pretty damn funny! C'mon, admit it!

P.S. I hear Under Armor has just about finished stitching up your Varsity Straight Jacket! No other coach in the country is going to get one of those! Congrat's!

Go 'canes!

. I know for a fact they sell out their big games like when FSU and VT come callin'. -"gator4ever"

yeah right azzwipe. UM has NEVER come close to selling out that concrete warehouse. Nice angle for you to hang out in here in drag.

40-45k???? that's just like the Marlins drawing 15k on a weeknight ..."reported"

We all know YOU(scum fan) don't draw crap because your stadium blows, your team blows, your coach blows, and most importantly...YOU BLOW.

got jump back on manny the chinstraps sak...LOSER

"gators4ever" = sarasota SCUMBAG in drag

this blog owns your brain chump. Plus, you're football program suks asss

Hilarious to watch Sarasota scumbag try to appear intelligent then go of the edge like today.

cukooo

cukoooo

At least the canes will win the NC this year....................

AGAIN WHAT KIND OF LOSER WITH NO LIFE WOULD GO LISTEN 2 A COACH TALK...

________________________________________________

This comment is a perfect example of the difference between the typical SEC fan and everyone else. Football just means more in the SEC, I guess. To an SEC fan, it's why WOULDN'T you go ask a coach and players questions? Plus, the event was for students and it sounds like it was pretty cool. Students could ask players and coaches anything they wanted and the players and coaches were relaxed and having fun.

-jo-

But Jo, 37 people showed up to hear Marble Mouf at The PB Convention center. That's a fan base man.

Don't try to offer up reasoning to this guy . He's a whacka-doo

Jo,

Your on fire today! Three stories! Keep on keepin on! Nice Job.

And I Have seen Urban talk, Lou Holtz, Nick Saban, Bill Belicheck, Chucky, Schnellinberger...and they were all great. Urban is fantastic and so is Chucky and Belicheck.............but I have also seen Randy Shannon talk, and if i was a Cane fan I would not go out o hear him either. He gives me the impression that he is still shocked he got the job and he doesnt get too excited about anything. Nice guy, good person, not a great speaker and no master of words. Very dry and no sense of humor.

Damn Jo...Addazio opens a can of woop ass, no? Sounds like a mixture of drill seargent and Baptisit televangelist. I had one hand on my wallet and the other doing pushups! Definitely no caffeine required, huh? It's what you have to do as a football coach...no doubt. You have to admit though, with that passion in his voice and yelling "get ready to play Miami", it's hard not to think it's against the Canes instead of the Red Hawks...too bad.

Jo,

I'm an avid reader but not a commenter--the name-calling is too silly for me--but this post was so fantastic I'm making an exception to my own rule. Great audio; I, too, want to run through a brick wall now! And being a petite woman, that's not something I say regularly. :-)

You're right--the town hall meeting *was* a lot of fun! Without press there the atmosphere was very jovial and relaxed, and I'm so glad I went. I actually learned a lot, and I was also pleasantly surprised not to be the only female grad student there! I expected mostly frat boys and cheerleaders, but it was heartening to see a fairly diverse turnout of people who were genuinely interested in connecting with the staff and players we see on campus every day. Spending time with them in that arena is a reminder that we're rooting for our colleagues and classmates, not just the celebrity that our organization has become. I think that sort of very unique opportunity to interact with your team is what breeds true, lifelong, win-or-lose fans. The sort of fans who don't need to refer to their opponents' city as "gay" or use rude epithets. We can save our trash-talking for in the stadium, because unlike those other schools our stadium will always be full, and there we have 90,000 friends to back us up when we talk the talk. The insecure fan needs to be a squeaky wheel; the confident fan can hold his tongue and just open his arms wide in welcome to The Swamp. Nothing else needs to be said.

And Jo, I also think you were spot on when you said football just means more in the SEC. There is an atmosphere here that is undeniable and palpable, regardless of where you're from. Make all the redneck jokes you like, but I for one am a proud SEC fan who 1) Was born and raised in a decidedly UN-southern state, 2) Has all my teeth, 3) Can read, write and spell better than the non-SEC posters on this board have demonstrated thus far, 4) Will have earned a PhD before age ::mumblemumble::, and 5) Am a WOMAN.

So Gator-haters, why don't you take the time you'd spend posting silly garbage on another team's blog and instead devote some time to being a learned fan of your own team? Because that's what makes the SEC great, and that's something you'll never understand.

Keep up the great work, Jo!

So says U skank, but going undefeated and having your team mentioned alongside the "greatest of all time" is something Gator fan will never understand.

Skank? See, I rest my case. How sad. I was able to pose an argument without resorting to name-calling. Join me, Gators, in heartfelt sympathy for those with limited vocabularies. :-)

INSTANT CLASSIC!

By the way, there is a solution to the gator sicko that can find internet access and can steal bloody credit cards of a dying woman but can't find a bathroom in Gainesville.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foley_catheter

There is a reason they are so happy with Foley, I guess....

So Gator-haters, why don't you take the time you'd spend posting silly garbage on another team's blog and instead devote some time to being a learned fan of your own team? Because that's what makes the SEC great, and that's something you'll never understand.

Keep up the great work, Jo!

Posted by: VitaminG | August 26, 2010 at 11:02 PM

I am not a Gator-hater, just a Cane fan that is tired of Gator trolls attacking our sites, so I can't speak for them.

However, I agreed with all that you said. Unfortunately, discussion on our sites cannot occur thanks to the racist Gator troll that steals IDs, jokes about murder victims, and posts that he wants to lynch our coach.

If a Cane fan posts on there, he then signs in as their ID, and attacks other Cane fans on there. He purposely sows dissent and racial hatred, and no amount of requests for moderation, inattention, or banning has stopped him.

The only option left is to bring the battle to his own shores, like America did to Japan and Afghanistan.

But yes, Joe is doing a great job, positive and fun and attentive to the comments. I am sure he appreciated yours.

As for the other guy's "skank" comment, that is likely a retaliation for that racist sicko's obsession with an ID of OGV, who posts in Canes blogs, and in response to any of his comments the troll says that he sleeps with a Portland skank using Canes fans' IDs. Sorry you got hit with retaliation like that.

U stay classy, Arty.

-jo-

Will do Jo!

that is likely a retaliation for that racist sicko's obsession with an ID of OGV, who posts in Canes blogs, and in response to any of his comments the troll says that he sleeps with a Portland skank using Canes fans' IDs. Sorry you got hit with retaliation like that.


LMAO...BOOOO ! blah blah blah OGV sleeps with a portland skank? And then an apology? You need to get those internet goblins out yo haid bwahh. chump

Just curious? what exactly is a "Portland skank?"

Sounds like a cut of beef or something...dunno.

And while I have been known to cuddle up with a tenderloin, I prefer my meat from Nebraska

BOOOOOO!

p.s. u will be a punchline till the end of time, just wait till your early season meltdown commences.

And you'll respond with 25 posts from the 80's and 90's. The good old days when you were relevant. It's 2010 cane cluck and u sukkkkk

don't forget the 2000's shyt for brains

There you go, VitaminG, yet another example of the garbage we have had to tolerate for three years before finally bringing the battle to this turf. He enjoys causing discord and hatred, ignored requests for a truce, ingnored requests for facts, ignored requests to stop stealing IDs, and unlike "arty" here who listened to the owner's request to stay classy, actively pushed the Canes site to the point where they moderated the entire comments section. I am sure Joe doesn't want to do that, so if tht sicko would just leave Canes fans alone, I bet everything would go much smoother for both fanbases.

ain't going to happen...that Turd...most actually..are beyond reason. Keep the guns ready, because they'll puke more vile and disinformation soon.
