GAME DAY: Gators offense the story after first game. And it's not a good story.

GAINESVILLE -- Thoughts on the game, anyone?

Wow, the Gators offense took the better part of four quarters to get going on Saturday in its 34-12 victory against Miami of Ohio. Even that assessment might be too kind. UF had 212 yards of total offense, the second lowest total since Urban Meyer became coach in 2005. Fumbles and poor snaps were partly to blame, but even when UF wasn't dropping the ball on the ground the offense didn't look very exciting.

John Brantley passed for 113 yards and two touchdowns in his debut. Jeff Demps led UF with 98 rushing and a touchdown.

What can we expect from this team the rest of the season? You're guesses are as good as mine. Can this team win in the SEC without former quarterback Tim Tebow's leadership? Does UF need to move Mike Pouncey back to guard and give Sam Robey a shot at center? Does Brantley need to throw it deep more often and stretch the field? I have no answers at this point; only questions.

(LIVE BLOG BELOW...)
THIRD QUARTER
Florida's offense is still struggling mightily in its 2010 debut.

The Gators turned it over on downs to begin the second half then had two back-to-back poor snaps for fumbles that put UF on its own 1 on its second possession. At the beginning of the fourth quarter, Florida is being out-gained offensively 165 yards to 25 by Miami of Ohio.

FIRST HALF
Let it be remembered that the first quarter of Florida football in the post-Tim Tebow Era began this way: Three offensive possessions and three offensive turnovers.

UF's offense played badly to begin the 2010, fumbling the ball away on its first two series then turning it over on downs on the third series. UF finally took the lead with 13:14 left in the first half when UF cornerback Janoris Jenkins returned an interception for a touchdown.

PREGAME
Gators starting free safety Will Hill will sit out today's season opener for the University of Florida football team, according to a university spokesman. Sophomore safety Josh Evans of Irvington, N.J., will likely make the first start of his career against the Miami of Ohio Redhawks at noon.

Gators linebacker Dee Finley (hamstring) will also be unavailable for the season opener, according to UF.

What time do they fire up the roach barbeque at the trailer trash tailgate?

Try saying that three times fast Gatards.

"Trash"... Funny you use the word.

Exactly what comes to my mind when watching this video.

ENJOY.

How many times can you cut and psate in 1 day Derrick? Are you there giving your buddy a hi-5 for breaking the record. How about an extra sip of Pabst for that clever paste before you choke on that raccoon stew

Yep. There is trash all over this world. It just seems to be more concentrated in and around Gainesville U.

Hey, that's not me talking. That's just the truth.

Sorry Gatard trash. You are what you are.

I was draftin my fantasy football team the other day & was lookin 4 ex-GAtors & couldnt find any.
does any1 know what happens 2 them besides postin x-rated videos (brandon 'eye gouger' spikes) & fumblin the 1st snap of the game & havin it returned 4 a TD (teabag v the vikings last night).

Is it really still a debate that Teblow will be the latest and biggest bust for Gatard QB's in the NFL? I mean, let's look at it INTERIORALLY.

Damn, the stupid creeps into Gatard coaches. You can't stop it.

STARCRAFT.

They can be found sitting around the campfire telling stories of their days of being cut by nfl teams while passing the Chiba to each other

What complete trash at the Miami Game. I think they were all fighting about what upper deck section they would all sit in. Since it looks like each one of them could have their own section.

Trailer trash.

What is pathetic is that you cane trolls will STILL be on here talking crap even after an overrated OSU rips you a new one next week...

When was the last time someone from FU came in here and didnt copy and paste a post in here?

jo love the new format

In late 1995, the NCAA concluded that, in addition to the fraudulent Pell Grants facilitated by Russell, the university had also provided or allowed over $400,000 worth of other, improper payments to Miami football players. The NCAA also found that the university had failed to wholly implement its drug testing program, and permitted three football student-athletes to compete without being subject to the required disciplinary measures specified in the policy. Finally, the NCAA concluded, the university had lost institutional control over the football program. Miami docked itself seven scholarships as part of a self-imposed sanction in 1995, and the NCAA took away another 24 scholarships over the next two years. As a result of the scandal, Sports Illustrated's Alexander Wolff wrote a cover story that Miami should at least temporarily shut down its football program. Further, On June 21, 1996, Miami football players broke into the apartment of the captain of Miami's track team and struck him repeatedly. In response, Davis suspended three key players for the coming 1996 season. Davis also suspended two other players who were involved in separate violent incidents.

Seems like that was the formula for a #1 recruiting class, eh? Maybe a 1 or 2 day haitus in 2011 will do the trick again??

Yes, the coach quit for 23 hours. TWENTY THREE HOURS.
And then came the medical exams that revealed a painful but treatable condition. Didn't stop you from posting for six solid months that he's crazy. It's painfully obvious who the loon is here.

And then came the NUMBER ONE RECRUITING CLASS. And you spent six months saying stars don't mean anything until u gots a few 5 stars. Suddenly stars are cool. It's painfully obvious, again, who the loon is here.

yes, the coach quit. All told, I'm hoping he quits again for 23 hours.

When your paper thin house of cards implodes under the false expectations of JaBrokey Harris, your unqualified coach will get FIRED. But it won't be for 23 hours. It will , thankfully for u delusional clowns, be permanent.

Starting over on probation will suk an ass.

That "#1" class is chOck full of transfers, injuries, criminals and redshirts.

So much for that.

QUITTER.

transfers? nah. a couple of kids that would never see the field

injuries? We all got em. ESPECIALLY U

criminals? You got more thugs in one section of your stands than anyone cares to discuss.

redshirts? yes, that is the product of having a loaded roster and depth u ass clown.

what a desperate tool u are

NEXT........

Ha, typical classless Gatard trash. Pump them up when they are recruits, then trash them when they leave because Gainesville U is a pit.

They were five stars and realized that trailer park is a pit and the coach would be quitting soon enough.

Stay classy, trailer trash. Gotta run to the roach barbeque.

Guys,

I'll be updating this blog post throughout the game with commentary and news.

-jo-

I took Marlin Barnes and Bryan Pata on my fantasy team. My team name, GTA, Liberty City, should talk a lot of junk, beat a IAA team then not make the championship game. Oh well

I can't believe that the cane fans still come on here. I have never seen such bravado from a bottom tier ACC team. It's like the '72 dolphins talking smack to the Saints.

bryan pata was a victim, meth head.
frankie 'i need 2 bottle of crown' hammonds,
carlos 'frank the tank' dunlap,
ronnie 'machine gun' wilson,
aaron 'puff the magic dragon' hernandez,
gary 'i beat 2 women at a time' brown
jamar 'i use dead people's credit cards' hornsby.
GAYTORS WERE THE 'PERPS', IF U CAN UNDERSTAND THAT METH HEADS.........

Gatards PUKING all over themselves.

Practice All American Brantley suuuuuck.

Pouncey 'tard #2 is worst center in the country.

#4 in the xountry and you think tOSU is overrated?

You suuuuuck gatards.

End of the 1st!

Miami 3 UF ZERO!!!!!!!!!!

BUWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAAAAAAA!!!

Go 'canes!!

USF looms.....

Go 'canes!

Well, we know Miami of Ohio will soon be dropped from the Gator schedule in an attempt to have a more "national" schedule.

LMAO!!!!

Timeout UF???????? Why the hell did UF call a timeout???????? What's wrong with UF today?????? Timeout???????? Against Miami of Ohio???????? Timeout??????????

USF looms...

Go 'canes!

Commenatry fist quarter.....

OVA RATED LOSERS

FIREADDAZIO.COM!!!! It's probably already taken, but you never know without checking!!

Go 'canes!

- 28 yards rushing in the 1st quater........


uf suuuuuuuuucks...............

I'm so damn mad at my team I could switch allegiance. If it wasn't for the bone head staff and horrible players on the Redhawks we'd be losing to a 40 point underdog at home. We're #4? Forget that crap, we SUKKKK

OK, technical difficulties here at The Swamp. Having trouble getting online. Apparently everything is in meltdown mode today.

Gators offense with some hiccups early but the defense is bailing them out so far.

-jo-

Now you know that MU was 1-11 last year...right?

Go 'canes!

why do we insist on playing that Smurf Demps? The guy gets blown up every time he touches it, then the opposing D gets in his face and tells him he sukkks. Don't we have any 4 or 5* guys on the bench? Are we that damn desperate that we have to play this guy?

WR/TE Omarius Hines' first catch of the day is a touchdown. UF leads 14-3. The Swamp still in shock, though.

-jo-

INTERIORALLY.

ADDAZIO IS THE WORST COACH IN THE COUNTRY.

WWW.FIREADDAZIO.COM

very unimpressive. I know Tebow is gone, but you shouldn't be struggling against this school.

rightfully so Jo...if they didn't give us all 14 points we'd be down 10-0 to a 40 point dog, at home, that finished 1-11 in the frickin MAC last year. We have hit rock bottom.

SOMEBODY HIT THE PANIC BUTTON!!!!!

Go 'canes!

does any1 know what college Emiitt Smith went 2????

Jabirus Jenkins is the biggest thug in college football.

The crowd is booing the team at halftime..don't balme them. W/o the gifts from the screaming redhawks and the coaching meltdowns by their staff we'd ne losing right now. I'm embarrassed to be a gator right now.

USF is salivating.

You will go down, GATARDS. The chickensh$t offense is done.

GATARDS SUUUUUUUCCCKKKK.

12 yards total offense in 1st half. Tebow averaged half that every play.

gator offense gained a grand total of............20 yards in the first half against MIAMI of OHIO. The team that won 1 game last year. # 4 you say?

The reality of the 1st half is that MU basically spotted UF their 14 yds OF TOTAL OFFENSE!

This is bad...REALLY BAD!!!!!

Go 'canes!

BAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA..............

So much for "we fill our stadium.". That dump septic tank is half-full

guess the budget cuts are affecting the 'necks.

Come get yer roach barbecue.

Gatards SUUUUUUCCCCKKKK.

USF LOOMS, TRAILERTRASH NATION.

whether you like UM, UF, FSU, etc, nobody should be ranked until 4 or 5 games have been played.

Lou holtz says the GAtor offensive line is gettin dominated by a 1-11 team & thought that was 1 of the GAtor strengths goin in2 the season.
12 yards offense in the 1st half.
what an EMBARRASSMENT but not as bad as Emmitt Smith NOT mentionin his alma mater in his 24 minute HOF speech...

The gators could go on to win 50-6 and it would not matter. Your O suuuuuuuucks. Wait untill you play a real team like.......USF. It's OVA you clowns.

September 4, 2010 at 12:38 pm
Someone please get Tebow on the phone because we look like ass!

We look like absolute garbage. Is th Zooker on the sidelines calling ll these damn bubble screens? Don’t even get me started on the 4th and inches and we run a freaking sweep!

Going to be a long season if we look like this.

///////////////////////////////////////////

You don't know how long Mr2bits...

How much is UF paying for this shyt???

Go 'canes!

The Canes would KILL this pop warner team. Are you phucking kidding me. strap up turd tards the second half looms......

12 yards of offense is well.......... offensive.

Who thinks urbans head EXPLODES in the second half? This is great comedy.

"BREAKIN NEWS", Urbin myers is steppin down & steve addazzzio is takin over as head coach.
URBIN WAS SEEN IN THE LOCKER ROOM CRYIN OUT 'WHERES TIMMY'.

Gainseville....... We have a problem.

Very impressive Gaytards. That top team Miami of Ohio gave you your 21 points and has only allowed 14 yards of total offense to Urban Cryers team. Good thing you are not playing the real MIAMI or U would be getting biatch slapped by 45.

BAWAHHHHH

Look out dazzlers. Brain matter coming to a place near you........

LOOKS LIKE GOJO'S C+ WAS RIGHT ON...

Half time stats 102 - 13.

Gators offense turns it over on downs to begin the second half. Wow. Should have punted, considering UF has Chas Henry.

-jo-

WHERE'S TIMMY, WHERE'S MY PROZAC, WHERE'S TIMMY.....
Get fooley on the phone, NOW.

PURE GARBAGE!

For the record, UF had more points (21) than total offense (13 yards) in the first half.

-jo-

Oh my god! That was a safety.......

BAWHAHAHAHA This team SUUUUUUCKS....

Wow!! not getting any better. Lost your offense coordinator, your QB. I thought Urban was a offensive guru. Looks like it was ALL Tebow.

C+ was not right on. F- is more like it

The gators can barely snap the ball! The wheels are falling off.

Meyer: "Hey Steve, how's your offense coming?"

OC: "Great! I have Rainey in the "Harvin" position, Brantley in the "Tebow" position, and Dubose in the "Murphy" position!

Go 'canes!

I take back everything I said Jo about UF "rolling" through the SEC East! Spurrier is licking his chops as we speak!

USF looms...

Go 'canes!

I am feeling a little tired, may need a power nap....zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Jo, how far will UF fall in the polls next week? I say they're still a top 20 team, but I don't get a vote. Your thoughts..

Go 'canes!

17 total yards late in 3rd quarter. OUCH..
GOJO just changed his C+ 2 a D+...
GAtor fan now cheerin a successful snap....

they are talking on TV about UF's strength, the o-line. I wonder if the real strength graduated.

GATORS SUCK............

Sarasota Cane - unfortunately the Tebow era isn't quite over yet. Until the ghost is a fully gone, the pollsters will NOT penalize UF very much for today. It stinks, but that's the way it goes. Look they won't even talk about the 30 plus arrests under Urban. In time Tebow will be forgotten, and Urban and UF will have do something about this behavior, just like media did to UM, USC, etc

THE BOOOOOOO BIRDS R OUT IN THE SWAMP.....

THE D+ JUST WENT 2 AN 'F'......

YOU have been DOMINATED for three quaters by a team that ONLY won 1 game last year.....SAD!

Gators being out-gained by Miami of Ohio 167 yards to 25 to begin the fourth quarter.

-jo-

half the Gators are now Denver fans. at least you have a 2nd day on the weekend to hope for a win

this is horrible. our offensive coordinator is a joke. he was last year and it showed. If it werent for tebow and a few others, our season would have looke similar to this.

Meyer: get rid of adazzio

Miami wastes a huge chance for a touchdown at the beginning of the third quarter. Redhawks had a first-and-goal from the 5 and settled for a 33-yard field goal. Miami of Ohio is blowing its chances at an upset. Gators 21, Miami 12.

-jo-

If you were playing the REAL Miami you would be LOSING by 40.


Posted by: 305_Gators | September 04, 2010 at 02:41 PM

No matter jo. The writing is on the wall.

congrats. you have 100 yards. To bad you missed the point after........

Gators Jeff Demps sprints for a 72-yard touchdown. Always helps to have the fastest man in college on your team on days like this.
