Meyer takes apparent shot at Canes fans' apathy and keeps UF students laughing at event

GAINESVILLE -- Thanks to our fearless student correspondent (the event was closed to media), here are some of the highlights of Urban Meyer's town-hall-style meeting with 500 UF students on Wednesday night inside Ben Hill Griffin Stadium's Touchdown Terrace. (Bull Gator hangout.)

So, first things first. Meyer seems to have taken a shot at the 'Canes when he said this: "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..."

Oh, snap!

The best part of the town-hall meeting was when Meyer explained the spread offense to the students (and clowned one hapless student in the process!)

MEYER: "There are some misunderstandings about the spread. The spread offense is a run-first, pound-you offense. Our spread. And what we try to do is take advantage of mismatches. You think of some of the great players we've had here over the past four or five years and I can name Percy Harvin and Aaron Hernandez are probably the perfect spread-offense players. That's because they're match-up nightmares for the defense.

Does that make sense to you. This is real football stuff, now. This isn't what you see on TV. [LAUGHS]

So, take a guy like Aaron Hernandez who very fast, a great receiver but is also big and can block. You're a defensive coach, who do you put on him?

[MEYER RAISING HIS VOICE]

Yeah, you, answer. Go! Yeah! [LAUGHS FROM STUDENTS]

Yeah, you in glasses. The confused guy right here. Go. [LAUGHS ALL AROUND]

[MEYER NOW NEARLY YELLING]

Who do you put on him? He's big, he's 250 pounds and he runs a 4.5. Go!

CONFUSED GUY: [INAUDIBLE]

MEYER: Your middle linebacker. That's when we flex [Hernandez] out and throw him the ball. Does that make sense to you? If you put a corner on him, a small guy, you put a back on him. It's the same thing. We had Percy Harvin. We have Omarius Hines now. We have Chris Rainey. We have Jeff Demps. When you flex him out, who do you put on him?

"That's what Coach Addazio, the offensive staff and the guy upstairs are saving. Where are our match-up issues at? If the match-up is not good, take the match-up that's good. That's why we spread the field. Does that make sense to everybody?

"There are so many misunderstanding about the spread offense. Here's a little secret for you. What's the difference between the spread offense that we run and the New England Patriots and about a dozen teams in the NFL as far as throw game? Nothing. It's the same exact passing game that NFL teams use.

"You here that nonsense about, 'Are the spread receivers ready to go?' [Louis] Murphy, Percy Harvin, Riley Cooper, Cornelius Ingram, Aaron Hernandez, Bubba Caldwell, so the answer is very simple. Are they ready? Sure they're ready. Because the Florida haters like to say we don't have the best receivers in the country, but we do.

So, once again, the spread offense is a pound-you-first offense. When they bring an extra guy in the box to try and stop the run game, what do we do? Confused guy again, what do we do? Don't duck down! [LAUGHS]

CONFUSED GUY: Throw the ball.

MEYER: Throw the ball! Right! To who?

CONFUSED GUY: [INAUDIBLE]

MEYER: The best match-up! Does that make sense. Should we go over that again. Do you play that video game? I bet you get your ass kicked in that video game. [HOWLING LAUGHTER]

Another fun post.

Gotta give credit where due. I hate the Gator troll that ruined the Canes blogs, but you guys have got a good reporter here.

Now, get your troll off our site and maybe we can have that truce I have been pushing for.

They have to laugh. TO KEEP FROM CRYING!

Its an easy answer if you got the Horses Urbie, just like against Bama, Hernandez didnt do squat. If the DL is winning the battle he has to stay and block at the line for help. So that was easy

FACT remains, good work. They have been poisoning our blog for three years, and it was time for a little payback. We tried to be polite, asked them to moderate their comments, to be sensitive when they joked about the death of players, but we kept responding on our own blogs, and that failed.

Time to bring the battle to their turf like America did to the Taliban. They supported terrorists, too. How did that turn out for them? Please feel free to suggest to other Canes fans that they need to bring their payback here. Shandel apparently is not going to remove the obsessed Gator troll, and Steve Gorten is too new to be aware of the garbage he spews on Canes blogs.

So, let the Canes fans know that Operation Enduring Freedom has begun. Get them to come over, and let's make it clear that they can leave us alone, or there will be mutual assured destruction on both sets of blogs. I didn't want to do it, but no other option was left. We cannot bargain with racist terrorists, we can only give them back what they gave to us.

God Bless the USA!

But i Guess if the kid said that he would have Urbie pointing his finger calling him a bad guy. Then ban him from the stadium.

Who do you put on him? He's big, he's 250 pounds and he runs a 4.5. Go!

Not only that meyer yelled but you should see him hit the bong. I mean this guy has all world bong skills. I can honestly say I have never seen anything like it........since percy left.

ahhh!

that bi-polar meyer!
he's got jokes!

wish we could get a live feed in his house when he starts ducking behing couches cause his house is under seige.

LOL.

joker wont matter now that tebow is gone.

By the way, Aaron "puff puff" Hernandez is a long gone fourth round pick, so it isn't like he was Jeremy Shockey (first round pick), Kellen Winslow (first round pick), Bubba Franks (first round pick), Greg Olsen (first round pick), or even Jimmy Graham (third round pick).

Nobody will be afraid of Aaron Hernandez unless he is sneaking up on their stash. Or in Brantley's case, 'stache.

UFelons.
bi-polar meyer at the helm.
no tebow.
sanctions forth coming.
Gators no longer matter!

Hernandez doesnt play here anymore Urban??

The University of Miami's football program produces players who go on to become All-Pros in the National Football League.

The Hurricanes hold the NFL records for:
most players selected in the first round in a single draft
(6, in 2004);
most first-round draft picks in a two-year period
(11, from 2003 to 2004);
most first-round draft picks in a three-year period
(15, from 2002 through 2004);
most first-round picks in a four-year period
(19, from 2001 through 2004);
most consecutive years with first-round picks
(15, from 1994 through 2008);
most consecutive regular season weeks scoring a touchdown in an NFL game
(122, from 2002 Week 15 through 2009 Week 17, and still going);
most Pro Bowl players in a season;
(11, in 2009);

So much for claims about only talking about the past, we are the winners in CURRENT records, too.

I would try to find out the highest total for the Gators, but Urban Meyer beats up reporters that ask questions like that.

Remember to thank your raist blog terrorist for this visit.

Get him off our blogs, we will leave you alone as well. Simple equation, really.

typo, that is "Remember to thank your racist blog terrorist for this visit.

Get him off our blogs, we will leave you alone as well. Simple equation, really".

5 > 3, and God Bless America!

Urban Crier your time will come when all of that laughing will turn to crying. Someone help me i'm having a seizure.

Oh, and Canes fans, pass this message on to Shandel for his current thread. Thanks.

"They don’t all react that way talking to reporters, just because they react that way talking to YOU, Shandel.

Big difference. For example, look at the video interviews on Manny’s site with the players, they don’t seem to be in any pain at all. Maybe if you weren’t so snarky and hated the Canes so much, they could respect you."

"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

I BEG TO DIFFER.......

will cane clown post 200 times a day when UM is getting beat like a drum? doubtful.

Who cares. Keep posting nimrod. It's your life.

In case you haven't noticed. YOu're nothing more than a punchline. Nobody in Gator Nation takes exception to your nonsense. We have lots of shiny NEW hardware. You have a long list of disappointments and crushing losses. At the end of the day the RECRUITS don't give shamwow the time of day. That's the stuff that keeps you posting here. Keep posting loser, it shows how deeply you resent that we are elite and that you are irrelevant.

I guess Bama knows how to stop the spread O?

To all the cane fans that went to UM...

Oh wait, none of you did...

But for those of you who are still riding the bandwagon.. stop saying how good the canes "were," or how many championships they won 20 years ago.

The Gators have been a superior program for the last 5 years, and it doesn't look like that's changing anytime soon.

The Fact remians that today Miami sucks. The Fact remains that you suck in a basketball conference. The Fact remains that you have always played weak conference schedules like the ACC and the Big East or your independent bologne schedule. Fact remains that most of your success came when the program was paying players off as your pell grant scandal proved. You got lucky the NCAA had pity on you didn't give you the death sentence.You were using public funds to payoff guys that couldnt even read. Fact is Luther Campbell was allowed to roam the sidelines and pay players off.

Your team today sucks which is evident by the fact that you have no stadium and your so called fans don't attend. Your school president has made it very clear that football is not that important anymore. The Fact is you are a mediocre team that lives off the nostalgia of the past. Today you are nothing and will continue to be nothing when it comes to football. Fact is today you SUCK.


Got some cane clowns over here....crickets crickets crickets

THE ULTIMATE INSULT?

Kirby Houcutt:


When asked about the possibility of joining the SEC, Hocutt said that was unlikely. He used the Florida Gators as an example to make his point. UM has tried to schedule more games with its in-state rival, but the Gators have declined.
“There are certain schools in the SEC that won’t play us now,” Hocutt said. “So I don’t know why they would be in position to have to play us on a regular basis.


The difference between Kirby and urbie is Hocutt had the balls to say this to the National media while urban flaps his gums to a bunch of students.

Elite?? You dumb gaytors are hilarious.
NOBODY is pickin gaytors to win anything this year. Actually have heard more than 2 ESPN talking heads say its sickening that UF is Preseason #3.
Your dopehead coach dont even know who's starting at 4 thats right 4!!! positions
#3 is a joke

Except for the winless seasons part of course. You guys "win" that hands down.

The Fact remains that you have always played weak conference schedules like the ACC and the Big East or your independent bologne schedule.

Bologne? Can you make a sandwich with that? Or are you talking about the town in France where jo has his florist shop?

Jo -

I thought that headline and the fluff that followed was beyond bush league...downright TMZ. Tell me you're not going there with this blog. That statement by Coach could have easily been interpretated as UCF, USF, FIU, FAU (shall I go on?). I sense you are trying to retaliate for being punked yourself, on numerous occassions, by UM fans that come on to our site. Please, don't lower yourself to their standards...rise above it! Give them credit for their 5 NC's and let's keep our process in place to catch...and ultimately, pass them. Giving credit where credit is due shows character. They have extraordinary achievments with pretty steep obstacles, and along with FSU, I'm pretty proud of our Big 3 and what they've accomplished on the national scene. Let the players settle these things on the field, not by sniping fans and reporters on blog sites.

You have had a good four year run with your hand picked schedule i'll give you that. But to say Miami is irrelevant is just crazy. Michael Irvin asked Desmond Howard which offense would he take this year in the state of Florida. Desmond said he would take J12 and his corp of receivers over the garbage gators. Do you cats even have any running backs and receivers because Urban Crier always let Tebag do everything for the last few years. Instead of being a real coach and let other players develope. I think what it was that Urban and Tebow were dating secretly go g a y t o r s.

Posted by: gators 4ever | August 26, 2010 at 01:48 PM

I agree 100% with your statement. Theres only one problem with it though. The gators would have to play the Canes to catch and surpass them. So when a Cane fan posts this:


28 > 26 HTH

5 > 3 Ships

3 > 0 undefeated seasons

4 > 1 THIS DECADE

6 > 1 HTH record the last 24 year

0 < 4 Winless seasons

dont get mad at cane fans. Get mad at the gator administration for taking their ball and going home. jo's a good sport he can give it as well as he takes it.


I meant NC's FACT, but your point is noted. We do play agin in 2013, so that will clearly adjust some of your comparative numbers...in who's favor it remains to be seen. That's why they play the games!

Appreciate your reasonable reply. Let's compete!

The Gators don't play the Canes regularly for the same reason they don't play UCF or FAU regularly. They are irrelevant. Quite frankly, as a fan, I hope the Gators never play the Canes again. They are the worst fans I've ever been around. FSU fans envy Gator fans for not having to play them. And they can say it's b/c the Gators are scared all they want. Who cares? Why would we be scared of a team that went 28-23 over the last four years? Every time I hear them talk or read a post, I start thinking about Springsteen's "Glory Days". You know, there was a time when the service academies were dominating teams too. The Canes are now a mediocre team in a sub-mediocre conference.

any program that has won 2 out of the last 4 CHAMPIONSHIPS is elite you clown. But Herbstreit said we need a RB so we're trash right? Ur a clown. a Jealous clown

Season is about to start, time running out for Canes fans over here. I mean, once they start losing and Jokery Harris gets broken like a twig, what can they write about? Oh yeah, their teams of the 80's... Too bad Miami Dade Community College doesn't have a football team, because then many of these so called Canes fans could have rooted for their own team....


http://deadspin.com/5620076/the-2010-haters-guide-to-the-top-25

Ok gator fans I am playing nice. Check this out. IT IS HILARIOUS!

Gators4ever in your dreams. Miami has been to 9 national championships cheated out of one you have only been to three or four. You just became relevant this decade. Tell me why are you playing Miami Ohio, Mississippi St. Vanderbilt, and Applalchian St.? At least play Ole Miss you don't have to be scared Dexter Mcluster is gone. The definition of true cowards we might not win all the time but we will play anybobody anytime anyplace. Can the cowardly country gators say that.

1st of all what kind of loser (trekies, geeks, & the GLEE club) would go listen 2 a coach speak.
& what kind of loser would make fun of the 1's that did show up. (mayb urbie should ask nick satan on how 2 cover 'puff the magic dragon' hernandez & leave the nerds alone)

FANS go listen to coaches speak you nitwit, but your team doesn't have any.

Get relevant.

GO GATORS

"What's the difference between the spread offense that we run and the New England Patriots and about a dozen teams in the NFL as far as throw game?"

"throw game"? The meds must be wearing off. First he is shouting like Howard Dean at students and reporters, and now he can't say "passing game"?

Wow.

Oh, and to answer the overall question, I don't recall Tom Brady being the leading rusher for the Patriots. The Gators do not run an NFL quality spread offense.

crazycane72 -

Your post, along with those just above it by son called "gator fans", are the problem with all these blogs. They're littered with lies and errors. Addressing your post, nobody is disputing that you've been to 9 NC games and the travesty of FSU going ahead of you to play OU. Most knowledgeable college football fans realize you could have easily won 3 NC's in a row from 2000-2002. We know you got screwed by the system in 2000 and robbed by a ref in 2002. God knows we wish you WOULD have been in that 2000 NC game, instead of playing us in the Sugar Bowl. My beignets didn't sit well that next morning.

Those teams were amongst the best of all time in college football...no dispute. Why gator bloggers like Chaka Chan or this embarrassment 'now bring my piss buket boy' insist on saying the 80's is beyond me...I apologize for thier collective ignorance.

But you also need to acknowledge the Gators program for what it is today...the best in the state, and arguably the nation. We have performed at a similar level to your 2000-2003 years recently and are still loaded for more. Time will tell if we maintain that high level of recent success with more and more kids getting drafted. This past year reminded me of a Miami draft...tons of 1st round picks and lots of guys taken in later rounds. If we have the good fortune of doing that consistently for the next 3-5 years like you did earlier this decade, we'll probably have similar challenges staying at or near the top.

That's the cycle in college football...always has been...always will be. USC, ND, Nebraska, FSU, TN, Ohio St., Michigan, Miami have all been on top of the mountain and deep in the valley. We'll try and enjoy our ride while we can and try to do better to respect you and others that were there before us.

Now if we can just get BOTH sides of this blog to take a deep breath and exhale slowly, we might actually be able to debate some football!

Posted by: gators 4ever | August 26, 2010 at 02:38 PM

I think the world is coming to an end.......

I'm a grad of U of F, but a Canes fan now. We have got to stop living in the past. The last U National Championship was in 01, 10 season ago. We have to start living now. And you know what Meyer was right, Sun Life Stadium is 1/2 empty for games. And all I hear are Canes fans complaining. Stop complaining and go to the freeken' games. Randy has the Canes going in the right direction. Are the Canes as good as the Gators right now.....no, but will they be yes. So let's get out there and support the Canes, don't be fair weather fans.

gators 4ever, you speak sense and truth. It is a real shame that "Fake Donna Shalala" and/or "Curse of Art Kehoe" would not speak sense when they attacked the Canes blogs for the past three years. Convince them to "debate some football" instead of joking about murder victims and suggesting that coach Shannon should be lynched, and I bet BOTH sides would appreciate it.

Blessed are the peacemakers, and God Bless America!

I think the world is coming to an end.......

Posted by: The FACT remains | August 26, 2010 at 02:41 PM

Nah, according to the Mayans, it won't be until 12/20/2012 that the world ends. That is why Foley scheduled the rematch for 2013, just in case.

mike33076 and JF -

Candid words for sure. I have a UM neighbor that wears his shirts and flies his flag, and God knows he loves his Canes, but he also is fed up with the lack of fan support. I know there's probably lots of plausible reasons (things to do in Miami, spoiled by past success, etc.), but he and I agree that Miami is perhaps the most peculiar sports CITY in the US. Look at the Marlins games...and they're building them a new stadium? The Heat, with Duane Wade (who I think is the best in the NBA), had to change seats colors in AA arena so as not to draw attention to the empty seats. It's an epidemic on all sports down there, but I'm convinced that if your coach continues with his incremental success the fans will come. Nothing sells a seat in sports more than winning. Just ask the Tampa Bay Rays!

Gators 4 ever, its quite obvious who Meyer was talking about. The only school in Florida that has a half empty stadium for every game is Miami. Meyer could care less about all those schools you named, because they aren't big name programs. For a program of Miami's stature to consistently have games with a half empty stadium is ABSOLUTELY SAD, and speaks volumes for that fan base.

Jenny -

That bit about 2013 is just plain funny, no matter which team you support! Humor sure sits better than vile comments, so thanks.

Gatoralum -

Probability is that you're on mark with Coaches intended zinger, but can you help all the folks here with some research to prove your point? Seems I saw something last year saying the Canes averaged ~40-45k at games, which would be above 50%. I know for a fact they sell out their big games like when FSU and VT come callin'. They will NEVER do like we do though and sell out for EVERY game...never have. I'd be reluctant to jump on the UCF, USF, FIU and FAU bandwagon on your comment w/o supporting research to prove it. They've been either crappy or apathetic (or both) for some time now, so let's see what the stats say. Thanks.

I can agree with you on that gators4ever. I love to talk football. So what I am saying is long before the gators won there championships when people thought about Florida they thought about MIAMI. We will see what the future brings.

Gators 4ever, I don't need to pull stats, all you have to do is watch a game on TV and see how empty the stadium is. The only reason you see the stadium full for big games, is because the other teams fans fill it. Its a well known fact, even cane fans will tell you they don't fill the stadium .

It's easy to poke fun at a team you are chicken to play Urb...

Gaytor fans piss in buckets??
No indoor plumbing in da student ghetto??

Gatoralum - no argument on the first point. In fairness, when they fill it up I'm sure their side is up substantially too. Problem is compounded, I think, by the size of the stadium, which magnifies the perception. OB and Sun Life held/hold what...72-80k? If they played in a 48-55k college stadium like most teams (absent the big boys of course), their normal 45k attendance would appear nearly full. Still thinking winning is the magic bullet for them..we'll see though.

Fact is that Miami playing in big games the stadium is full.
Look at any tape from da Okies game or GT its pretty full. This year against FSU, UNC, VT, it will be full.
Now UF sells out big time, but lets be honest, if there was anything else to do in Gainesville when playing Troy, or Charleston SC they would have trouble too. I live in Gainesville and thats when guys in business with me give away tickets.
I wanna see a good game. I myself get no joy at watching the second string pull away bt 4 td's.
Id rather cut my lawn, really!!!

playoffs???

Being Honest - very well stated and..well, totally honest! Beyond that though, and maybe more importantly, I think it's accurate. Same probably applies to Tuscaloosa, Knoxville, Blacksburg, Tallahassee, Little Rock, etc. I get your point.

hey "gators4ever" ...go phhuk yourself loser

cane fan in drag get lost

Sorry folks for this miscreant that anyone would be ashamed to have as a "fan". Wish you'd show your Mom what linguistic skills you have 'bucket boy'....I'm sure she'd be proud of you.

. 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

Any chance you might take a mulligan at that rant fella and try to say it in English this time? Newsflash - attendance at ball games can be easily verified via Google or Wiki...no need for boneheads like you throw around figures that can't be supported. Do me a favor and stay in the cheap seats where I can't see or hear you please.

Piss bucket boy gets angry when his boyfriends are talked about dont he?
Him and teary Timmy under the bleachers.

Yes relevant for 5 years....Canes 30 years...Canes rule the NFL...Tebow tears, no dynasty, choke, choke, choke, choke.....

Back to football anyone? Aren't there enough wars being waged over REAL issues?

Canes were relevant from 83 to 2002...19 years.....

Gators from 94 until present 16 years....splitting hairs..

Gators have 3 national championships in 366 days in 2006-7 (2bb, 1 FB). If you add in 2008, thats 4 in two years. Pretty impressive.

Urban is correct. UM games are half full. I buy UM tickets cheap and give them to my clients. But most of the time they don't even go. I actually went to the UCF game last year. It sucked. What a boring, semi-limp event. Unfortunaly for us Gators on this blog the three fans whom actually go the UM games have no life and like to reduce this blog to shi#.

great stuff Joe, Im glad the dude didnt tell coach to put the guy alabama put on him.

Gator John - wasn't the UM game against UCF in Orlando? What does that have to do with their attendance at home games? Points made though...both schools have great football accomplishments, and similar to FSU, are amongst the tops in the nation in football tradition.

@CaptG8r ---> Never play the canes again? TYPICAL GATOR

@Gator John---> We were relevant until 2002?

2003 11-2 (including Gator Smackdown)
2004 9-3 (including Gator Smackdown)
2005 9-3

Nice try man

Yes, never play them again. I don't like being around the majority of the Canes fans that show up in their jerseys and cause problems. I see no benefit in playing them anyway. It's not like it would have helped our strength of schedule much over the last few years (OK, it obviously does more than App State). What I'm saying is that with our current SEC schedule that is predetermined (not cowardly hand-picked as suggested above), there's no added value in playing a mid-tier team from a bottom-tier BCS conference.

I have to admit, my post was somewhat reactionary in that I don't read Canes blogs nor do I troll the comments there to flame others. I've read this blog for sometime and keep seeing the same Canes trolls posting crap and I took the bait. Obviously, the Canes have been relevant in terms of the national championship in the past. There's absolutely no denying that they were a dominant team for several years. But in the current picture, they just aren't.

Look Miami has been down for a while. But everyone knows whats comming. You cats who love Florida so much need to try and give Tebow and Brandon James some advice I don't think their gonna last to long in the nfl.

Gator4ever,

It was 2008 when I went to the UCF game. You are right. Because I remember I went to the Joe Robby Stadium three times that year: Once for my sons Boy Scout Camp Out, once for that lame UM-UCF game, and once for the Gators National Championship, which was the most incredible game I have ever been to. And to win it in the city I live in, in the Canes "home" stadium was sweet.
