« Morris, Duke Johnson, receivers talk about the offense's rough day against the Gators | Main | Miami Hurricanes jump 11 spots to No. 15 in AP poll -- first time since Nov. 14, 2010 that Canes enter AP's Top 25. »

O'Donnell rebounded from blocked punt with two game-changing punts in the second quarter, plus other notes

It's not often the punter gets invited to the post-game victory press conference.

But Pat O'Donnell earned himself a place in the spotlight Saturday afternoon with a pair of booming punts in the second quarter while the Hurricanes offense was struggling and the defense badly needed to shift field position.

"We're grateful for Pat O'Donnell. That's all I'm going to say," said sophomore rush end Tyriq McCord, who had the sack, forced fumble and fumble recovery that led to the decisive touchdown run by Duke Johnson.

"He's amazing. In practice he's always booting it about 100 yards average. That's all I can say."

O'Donnell, a graduate student and transfer from Cincinnati, crushed a 55-yard punt from Miami's 17-yard line after the Hurricanes offense went three-and-out to open the second quarter. He then shifted the field again with a 60-yarder, his longest punt of the season, after another three-and-out and Miami pinned back at its 16.

It was a nice bounce-back effort considering the day didn't exactly start great. Florida produced it's 13th blocked kick under coach Will Muschamp when Louichez Purifoy broke through and blockedhis first punt that led to Florida's first touchdown.

"As a punter, that's your job to flip the field when you can," O'Donnell said. "Unfortunately we had some events in the game that didn't go our way. I tip our hats to the Florida Gators. They did a good job rushing the punt."

OFFENSE STRUGGLES

Saturday's first quarter was one to remember for quarterback Stephen Morris and the Hurricanes, who put up 14 quick points on a seven-yard TD pass to Herb Waters and then a 52-yard scoring pass to Phillip Dorsett.

But the final three quarters were a nightmare.

UM only produced four first downs and 69 yards on 35 plays after exploding out of the gate with 143 yards over the first 15 minutes. Duke Johnson ran for 39 yards in the first quarter, but only 20 more over his final 15 attempts. Morris finished 12 of 25 passing for 162 yards and an interception after going 8-of-11 for 101 yards to open the game. 

UM's 212 total yards of offense were the fewest since a 31-7 loss at Virginia Tech in 2009.

"They have a great defense, one of the best defenses we’re going to play all year, one of the best defenses in the country," said Johnson, who was babying his left foot after the game. "They just came out and did their job and did it better than I expected."

Said Morris: "They made a lot of great adjustments. They knew when we were going to run and throw it. that was the best defensive line I ever went against, but we did what we needed to do to win the game."

MOVING UP THE POLLS

The Hurricanes, who broke into the polls earlier this week for the first time under coach Al Golden at No. 24 in the ESPN Coaches' poll, should find themselves moving up when the new polls are released Sunday.

Morris, who said Tuesday he could give "two you know whats" about where Miami was ranked, kept the same mindset after Saturday's win.

"It really doesn’t matter to me or this team," Morris said. "Whoever is in front of us we’re going to look at as a threat and we’ve got to do our best to win that game, no matter what we’re ranked no matter; if we’re not ranked. Our biggest focus is to continue on and moving forward."

> Safety A.J. Highsmith had the tackle on Florida's failed two-point conversion attempt and the recovery on the Gators' failed onside kick attempt late in the game.

> Senior Seantrel Henderson made his first start of the season at right tackle. Junior Jonathan Feliciano, who started at right tackle in the open, slid to left guard. The rest of Miami's starters remained the same.

> Safety Rayshawn Jenkins, who had an interception in the first half, was helped off the field with 5:29 to play in the third quarter. Trainers were looking at his left leg.

> Linebacker Thurston Armbrister left the game with a left ankle injury early in the fourth quarter.

By got them off guard I meant the high tempo offense Miami was using in the first quarter. I don't think UF was ready for it. They were sucking wind the whole time. They were not prepared for UM's speed, which is unbelievable, really, Once UM got the 14-6 lead I think they were content to play more conservative and just not turn the ball over.

Miami knew they had to play with the lead to win. Coaching staff came up with the gameplan to pull it out. Defense came up huge. The turnovers were a result of hard hitting throughout the game. Driskell took some devastating shots. That catches up with you over the game.

What garbage Cane fans keep coming up with after the crap play by the Cane defensive coaches and the crap unforced turnovers by the gator QB.

FIVE turnovers by UF and they were STILL within one score of winning the game?!?!?!?!?!?!?!!??!?!!?

d'o and his NO defense against the run or end sweeps,
d'o and his NO pass coverage zone NO defense.
gators had twice the total yards as Miami,
gators had twice the time of possession as Miami.

And you clowns are still all for d'os NO defense sets like his three down linemen.

FYI, Alabama uses a four down linemen defense and
so did Michigan beating ND.

Sure, Miami will beat FAU and Savannah State and UF if UF turns over the ball 5 times especially when they are in the Cane's red zone. But don't think for a minute that the rest of the schedule is about playing easy teams or teams that make mistakes and give the Canes the game.

When you have a goldie and a d'o who know nothing about defense and the Canes get pushed all over the field at will by UF, you do not have squat.

Canes got lucky. They have NO defense. And they are out of shape. Goldie, take the next three weeks and get the fat boys in shape. d'o take the next three weeks and study Michigan and Alabama and put in their defenses.

CaneFan please gives us a favor and lay off the crack.... This win reminds me of that big Ohio State win a couple of years ago where everyone was proclaiming the "U" was. Sck only problem was Ohio State lost 3 or 4 games that season. The Gators on offense are pathetic. Canes Defense and Offense seems as if made switch in production from last year very weird! Morris looks horrible these first 2 games I think he might be missing Jedd Fisch a little more than anyone knows..

Calvin, for the first time I agree with your recent post. Good assessment of the game. The defense made big plays despite being on the field forever. Great conditioning. The offense is what almost blew the game. The play calling was terrible. I like Steven Morris but he can't throw under pressure and he damn sure can't throw on the run. I would have liked to see Ryan Williams get a shot but who knows. The play calling was pretty pathetic after the first quarter.

Calvin u said Defense wins championships. Thats what won this game Defense. Tyrone Cornelious and Thurston Armbristor both get m MVP vote. They balled hard Armbristor had to good games. Figs also did his thing. they picked up the pace after Johnson and Pauls Dismissal.

Driskell just threw another pick, Arty is still tweaking off crystal meh, Soldy is still "trickin" his way back up 75 (Poor dental habits paying off), "delusional" thinks the game is today.........give the defense credit, give Golden credit because the players love him.......great win

Oh and the pressure on Coley to hang at least 42 on Savannah State will be immense, dude makes me nervous simply because Morris looks like he has gotten worse under Coley......somebody talk me off the ledge please

U Cane fans sound just like Gator fans.

The same gators that we just beat and the same gators that gang raped FSU......gtfoh! U scared?! Yeah U scared, posting on a Canes blog two months before a Category 5 hits Tally-ho....... Gtfoh U southern Alabama hillbilly

nope...UM did not force ANY of those 4 fumbles and 2 interceptions by florida.....all were lost by florida players.....

defense gave up 413 yards vs last year average of 486...so what is golden talking about how improved the defense is?

1st downs - 22 UF 10 U
total rushing - 122 UF 50 U
total passing - 291 UF 162 U
total offense - 413 UF 212 U

problems ar QB - RB and offensive play calling.....2 weeks back to back weak....

duke johnson 21 for 59 yards, just like he always does against decent teams.....hagens and clements were not even used....

dirskel and florida were in the red zone at will.....driskel on 1 series threw 2 bad passes...then missed a wide open receiver in the end zone, then throw an interception

golden/dnofrio still s...ck and the stats prove it......florida will drop out of the top 25....they were never a real #12 ranked team.

The offense is stuck between a rock & a hard place, james coley trying to figure out smo17, and most of it is all mental. I keep telling people he doesn't see the game like jacory did, if people look pass the picks, jacory was one of the better college qb's. The picks were more of a system default than jacory evidenced by jacory's last year. Add in the fact that jacory never played behind and o-line as good as what smo17 has. That bomb to dorsett was one of the first anticipation throws i can recall smo17 ever throwing because he wasn't open before he launched it.

Jim Gallo, Calvin, HarrietTubmanCanes, CanesFan'72 - you miserable pieces of sh*t have no idea what it means to be a UM fan.

You have no idea what you're talking about (as evidenced by yesterday's game) but even worse you don't go to the games and CLEARLY have no idea what it means that the University of Miami beat the University of Florida yesterday.

You're on here crying and moaning like the spoiled little brats you are, bitching and moaning about the offensive coordinator and Stephen Morris and Al Golden and desperately trying to convince everyone that UF gave that game away - as if they didnt score off a blocked punt, as if you haven't been here for MONTHS explaining how UF was going to run the ball down UM's throat, as if UM's defense didn't come up HUGE shutting down UF's running game and forcing them to throw those picks.

You little b*tches are the absolute worst kinds of fans, if you think yesterday was just another game for you to cry about, if you're still looking for excuses to whine about UM football all day everyday, then you people, on a personal level, really are the saddest sacks of sh*t I've ever seen.

Gallo what game were you watching all those fumbles were forced. Give golden credit for the win, be happy for the team, you're coming across as bitter and petty

Calvin u said Defense wins championships. Thats what won this game Defense. Tyrone Cornelious and Thurston Armbristor both get m MVP vote. They balled hard Armbristor had to good games. Figs also did his thing. they picked up the pace after Johnson and Pauls Dismissal.

That was no more evident that yesterday, you can go along way with a top notch defense and no offense, but you not going to far the other way around. For that we did yesterday, the gaytors still had a chance to win, i'm still not a fan of the defensive scheme and i think most on him would agree, that the 4-3 based scheme that the gaytors ran like we use to do vs what we're running now is alot more effective and was and it whooped our offenses butt from the 2nd quarter on.

When you hear our own players saying "that's the toughest defense they ever faced" those are the accolades we're use to receiving. But if this is the scheme we're going with and we play like we did yesterday, we got a real chance. The way howard went and got that pick reminded me of the way he jumped off that golf cart and started marching like a drum major.

Another reason i'm not a fan of that scheme, while we did get the win at the end of the game some of us predicted when you see things like this "jeff driskel career high of 291 yards" that has been happening far to often since goldie & his mac minions have gotten here. I'm going to enjoy this year though, because alot of the shannon recruits are leading the way and have made this team what they are today, but alot of them are graduating to, porter, green, robinson, smo17, linder, seantrel "whiff" henderson, jimmy gaines, tyrone, who's going to replace those guys is where this staff will make their mark.

So a strong year is needed this year, because come next year, we'll definitely have a lot of young guys in alot of key positions defensively. Seems like earl moore will be able to redshirt this year, but we haven't done a good job of recruiting d-tackles and that will show soon so i'm sure we'll be looking at that juco route real soon. But this year, if we can prove that we are actually playing legit defense, and i gotta give the ref's credit for not throwing stupid flags, like when t. howard was celebrating with his helmet off. Some bad calls that helped the gaytors out, but ereck flowers has been impressive from day 1 and now that he got his strength up, he's just going to get better. I like what malcome bunche brings to the team but to many times he gets beat, just doesnt' have the lower body quickness/feet often times and when he gets beat, he normally gets beat badly. I thought him playing on the inside would help, he's a real solid player though.

I think Gallo and CaneFan72 are the same miserable person. Good luck with that you poor miserable fools.
I said earlier in the year I wasn't all that happy with the Coley hire. That was his second game calling plays, hopefully he figures it out real quick.
Are the Canes back? No, but beating floriduh is progress.
Floriduh's defense is no joke. I'd take Easley over Clowney all day.
Finally the D line is starting to play, and get the pressure the secondary badly needs. Hopefully they can continue that against ACC teams and stop letting mediocre qb's look like Heisman candidates.
VT will be no joke! Take away Alabama's 4 big plays and that's a whole different ballgame.
I'll be at the NC and Duke games, who else is going?

mahoney, that post was ,all aboared to gainesville telling gators to leave town. And for your info I am a die hard.

Oh and the pressure on Coley to hang at least 42 on Savannah State will be immense, dude makes me nervous simply because Morris looks like he has gotten worse under Coley......somebody talk me off the ledge please

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

He hasn't gotten worst under coley, don't put that on coley, what simply happened is, smo17 just went up against probably the best defense in the country and than smo17 looked against FAU like he does against BETHUNE COOKMAN, but keep in mind the offense was vanilla against FAU and when you got alot of motivated guys from Miami & South Florida, playing in an attacking style of defense, that's where smo17 struggles.

duke johnson didn't struggle, the o-line didn't win alot of individual battles, the held up the line, but the gaytors d-line weree doing there thing. Now we do need to work on our keys, i thought coley would use more of a power based running game and he didn't which resulted in a lot of the negative plays, if you don't use haggens, you're not really trying to be successful running the ball. power I was the way to go and the few times we used it, we had big gains.

Had i been the oc, i would've said ok, at least for a few series, we not passing the ball, and we keep going backwards, so i'm going to go goaline offense and just go right at them three times straight and let's see what happens from the power I, and bring in the 2 tight-ends. That one play using asante cleveland was a nice call that drew the pass interference.

Also, keep in mind, smo17 can't throw or doesn't see passes in the middle of the field well, which a defensive staff like the gaytors know that. Most people got fooled by alot of those ballooned up stats from last year with smo going up against weak defenses, he's no jacory harris, but you can definitely win with em.

Whoever said, "he who laughs last, laughs best," was thinking of the last game in the UF vs Miami series. Which also leads to another conclusion about this series that ended today. The U has won 29 and UF 26, not only does the U win the overall series, they have now won 12 of the last 16 games and seven of the last eight games with the "not so mighty Gators." Although you have to say that Gator defense is outstanding...but the U's defense coached by NO-D won the day!

The the conclusion to those stats can only lead to one thought, "The U owns the Gators."

I'll take a win over the gaytors no matter what, we can fix alot of that stuff later, i meant to add this to, when you playing press man teams, you have to be able to attack the middle of the field if not, it's going to be a long day like it was yesterday for the offense.

I would if it was true...I am glad UM won especially for the kids......but not 1 fumble was a strip.....name it then.....all were lost by florida. and the interceptions were throw right into the hands of UM.....

1. 1st quarter - jones UF fumbled and wasn't even touched by a UM player
2. 2nd quarter a driskel pass was caught on UM 15 and came out and ambrister jumped on it
3. 4th quarter driskel runs and loses ball....mcord recovers....

Another good thing about winning yesterday, i'm sure the nc2a will hold true to form and are que'ing up the mic to try and rain on our parade, but good, let's get it over with. We beat one of the nc2a's favored school sec/neck conference schools, that'll piss them off some more, "BRING THE NOISE"!

What matters most? Winning the stats or winning the score? The gatas were stopped when it mattered most. Nice takeaways Canes!

Also good call on t.y. & thurston, thurston is a prime example of having a guy from Miami not highly rated nationally but just knows how to ball.

Calvin just leave... you're not smart and obviously know nothing about football or the canes. your beloved Mr mediocrity (randy Shannon) would've lost this game by 20 points. all you do is trash the program you closet gayturd! probably never even been to a game. hang yourself you little dumbazz troll. eh d what say? losers

gallo, you tripping dawg on this post, that first fumble, the ball just doesnt' pop up in the air like that, when it does, you can best believe dzp had something to do with it. The fumble by trey burton, i think it was gaines to knocked it out and the tyriq mccord sack & fumble recovery, those were all forced.

THe rayshawn jenkins pick wasn't thrown to him he went and got it. Now you can say the tracy howard pick was about the only one that wasn't forced but the fact that tracy howard came off of his man to pick that off, made that a partly forced turn-over.

Look, we've been riding about this defense and staff for a while now, but winning against the gaytors, they don't have a power-house team but they do have a powerhouse defense. That's why i compared this game to how penn disgrace came away with a victory against us in 1986, stat wise we won that game, turn-over wise they won and that's how we lost, but the difference between that game and this one, vinny did give away the ball 5 times, yesterday, we forced our turn-overs.

CAlvin, quit back tracking and trying to save face you fool

Calvin for youto regain your cered on this blog, youmust be a man, and publically apologize for thenasty name calling that youhave abused Donofrio with. The rants you have posted over the last year have now been relegated to the trash heap of history, where they belong.

Are you man enough to say you were wrong? without any buts?

This D gave up 400 yds to UF because of Time of possession and the U Tough conditioning was proof- had the D been under conditioned they would have wilted by the 3rd q. in that heat. They bent but didnt notbreak. Shannon's defenses would have folded like a cheap suit by half time.

Donofrios schemes as you nd cane 72 like to pontificate about DESTROYED UF's game plan. They allowed only 2.8 yds per carry and for the most part shut down the redzone.

ESPN is ridiculous and transparent. It isnt just Reece Davis and sloobbermouth Lou Holtz. Its (unfortunate buttrue) stroke victim Corso and Chris Fowler.

Horse face Fowler was giddy and snickering about how sunlife stadium would have 50-50 gator fans inside and tailgaiting. Eff you Fowler you are nothing but a p-o-s. Lou Holtz c an km a55 old drool bucket that he is- Both South carolina and ND got destroyed. Good for you you old decrepit

Furthermore- what people keep forgetting is that Miami's defense harassed Driskel and MADE him commit the mistakes, by rushing throws- furthermore, Miami GAVE them that last TD and Miamis punting game was beast like.

The UF d-line is for real though so our OC should have adjusted and I still think Morris and the O line and receivers are out of sync. The IOC has to use ZClements more and get the ball to Duke in the flats. Not run up the middle. Duke also had only 2.8 yds per carry. The O line had no push for Duke. Antonio Morrison was non existent the whole game!

I think the OC needs to figure out a way to adjustwhen Defenses are shutting Duke down. Once UF shutdown Suke they teed off on Morris. BUT GIVE MORRIS CREDIT- BC HE ONLY THREWW ONE INT, AND DID NOT TRUN THE BALL OVER MUCH. IT IS ALWAYS OK TO PUNT.

Calvin just leave... you're not smart and obviously know nothing about football or the canes. your beloved Mr mediocrity (randy Shannon) would've lost this game by 20 points. all you do is trash the program you closet gayturd! probably never even been to a game. hang yourself you little dumbazz troll. eh d what say? losers

Shut up idiot, no matter what, you're still stupid, a transplant in-bred from gainesville trying to bash shannon when shannon took basically a bunch of True freshman in 2008 and man-handled the inventional national champions for 3 1/2 quarters, and only lost by 20 points except for the last second fieldgoal by the weasel. Had those same gaytors played shannon's 2009 squad teblow & cryer would've went home losers. You are the one that still knows nothing.

This win doesn't make everything me, gallo, Canefan 72 or HarrietTubman, we said jeff driskell would have a career day/best game and he did that. I wasn't as certain as gallo was about the gaytors running on us all day because we got curtis porter and the whole d-line is older, but they did have the better running game & pasig game and the better defense, obviously we won the game, but it was evident after we went up 21 to 9, oach OH-NO a.k.a dnofrio went right back to his sissy ways and we gave up that touchdown in no time flat, was about to be a re-run of the Virginia game from last year where we're up by 10 points and still lose with less with only around 4 mins to play.

So when you or i hear coach goldie saying "we grew up today" to me, that means him & his mac minions moreso, and we'll see, because for the first time i saw a confident coach goldie after a press conference. i keep telling yall coach goldie is an outsider and will be until he becomes apart of a national championship here, the win yesterday doesn't change that, but he's starting to morph into that UM mindset that he's suppose to have along with his mac minions.

I'm going to criticize them until we're playing up to the level we're suppose to be at. The bashings & whoopings we gave the defensive mac staff, were valid than and ore valid now, us playing "THE WORST" defense in UM history last year will always be pathetic, only one way to reverse that and that's by becoming one of the best defenses in UM history, if you do that, you'll win a few national championships if not you'll definitely be playing for them.

Again people smo17 is not struggling, he's no teddy bridgewater plain and simple.

We lost everything but the game and turn-over battle and that's the real deal.

FIVE turnovers by the gators GAVE the game to Miami.
THREE turnovers in a game makes it all but impossible to win the game, much less 5.

The gators moved the ball up and down the field at will against the Canes' NO D d'o all day.
The gators had twice the yardage and twice the time of possession as the Canes.

You morons who know nothing about football should just take the W, go to church and thank god that UF was so generous to the Canes, and just be polite and say thank you.

And if you want to whine and complain and insult, try goldie and d'o and not true Cane fans like Calvin, Gallo and I who expect far more than wins against FAU, Savannah state, and an early Christmas gift from UF.

How about goldie and the linemen running 5 miles every day to lose the fat.
How about d'o studying Alabama and Mich game films and learn how a four down lineman defense to stop the running plays, inside and outside end runs.

You moron rah, rah girls know NOTHING about winning a game. You had your little orgasms watching the game which belonged to UF and was theirs to lose all afternoon, which they did and gave the Canes the win. Say thank you and move on.

Gallo calvin and 72 better watch that game again. We knocked those balls out. Its on film. How can they argue that?

Oh shut the hell up 72 and Gallo! Face the facts our defense forced those turnovers, and the Canes beat your little gaytors and sent them back to Canesville. Deal with it!

Calvin at least has somewhat of enough of a set to admit he was wrong, so props to him for at least doing that. Look these two teams played a heck of a defensive game and there aint a QB in CFB who wouldn't struggle against these two defenses, so with that said Morris is every bit as good as we thought he would be and last time I checked he threw two touchdowns against that vaunted Gator defense and led our team to a win.

Congratulations to the players and coaches who earned this victory.

Also, the gaytors kept running the ball to the outside, which normally never happens against us, but with this scheme, and weight approach to being a power based defense, that's where teams will be able to run against us at. Unlike the gaytors who are now playing our True style of defense, where you saw, as soon as we tried to run outside, when duke got there, he was met by at least 3 defenders.

What that game proves yesterday all along is simple, like we have been saying, we got the players, and i'll say this again, moving dnofrio up to the booth was going to be the only way we had a chance to actually play defense, if you guys think that hasn't had a major affect, you don't know football.

A win is a win that's the way it goes in the books. Undefeated season is very realistic. Prepare for every game like its the championship game. Your goals are attainable.

Hahahahahahahaha hahahahahahahaha hahahahahahahaha hahahahahahahaha LMAO at gatorsquad calvin gallo d and 72. Hahahahahahahaha hahahahahahahaha. Sore losers! Miami got a W in the undefeated column and gatahs got another L in the defeated column. They didnt move the ball at will against our d or they would have more than 16 points on the board.LMAO! Guess driskel gave us that strip fumble on the 5 yrd line so we could get another score also. Do yall realize how dumb that sounds? Go back to gator county....COUNTY!

Thanks SunnyDee, Truth, WG Cane, cane4ever, is it football season yet, Calvin, Gallo, CaneFan for carrying Canes football talk this morning despite the PTSD sufferers and blog rape victims. Nothing can make them happy, not even a win against the Gators yesterday. All of the Gator trolls have been silenced and are gone, but they can't post without the opposition the trolls provide--thus they have morphed some Canes fans into "trolls" to retain their relevance here. Its not about y'all (what the Pig did to U) its about this U. So post about the U. We ran him away by being objective about our team--which gave him zero material to hate on Us with. The Canes victory yesterday was the other dagger for now--poof--they're gone. Be comfortable with that--your rapist is in jail--we caught him--stop IDing the wrong people and thus keeping his crimes alive and re-tramatizing yourselves--its self-destructive at this point.

Gallo, I totally disagree with about the turnovers. Every last one of them was forced. Denzel put his hat right on the ball and rocked Matt Jones (who was WEAK) after further review. That hit was huge for this game and set a tempo of destruction ala Robert Bailey's vs Texas in the Cotton Bowl massacre.

McCord clearly stripped Driskell on a sack, Trey Burton was stripped, the review even showed how Jenkins read Driskell's eyes the whole play, culminating with him leaving his zone and going where Driskell threw. Tracy Howard the same, he clearly left his man to jump that underneath route--something we haven't seen a player do in about 6 years. So much for "free-lancing"--when I player trusts his technique and is physically fit--free-lancing pays dividends and turns the field.


I find it rather amusing that people say that the Gators, "won," everything BUT the game. I didn't realize there was some other win column besides the one for the victor. Oh, and by the way, for all those people saying that the Gators were able to run the ball well to the outside, they averaged less than 3 yards per carry.

Calvin,

You never said we had the players. In fact all you do is criticize Golden and Dnofrio. Lately you've been saying Cooley is the best coach out of the 3. That's not what I sawunder fire yesterday. Cooley tried one or two wrinkles yesterday, that offensive gameplan was weak.

Stephen Morris beat uf and Jacory didn't. Morris put us in the ACC championship and Jacory didn't. All fact, not opinion.

Calvin..stfu u monkey. You don't know what the Fu.k ur talking about. Keep reaching, and go away. Duckin marble mouth

The Gators are playing our true style of defense? But didn't the Gators lose yesterday? Lose to what you called a MAC coacing staff?

You've proped up Muschamp on this blog so much. What's his record against Golden? Golden just took it to him with a team he's recruited with handcuffs.

Reasons the Gators cancelling the Miami/UF series:

1) They cant win hard games outside Gainesville
2) The trailor crap town of Gainesville cant survive without an extra game
3) They cant pay bail for half their players fast enough to have them travel to play games

All we heard from u was Coley was our best coach..he.sucked yesterday .make up ur mind monkey

P.T.S.D--Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

Or Pig Traumatized Some Dudes

Or Pig Traumatized Seven Dudes- mountaincane, Five Titles, Ron Zook, 9>5>2, The Real Soldy, UGoCanes, SarasotaCane, Loser (and all his other aliases which could be any of the aforementioned--especially Real Soldy). The new hostile, bigoted, and intolerant Cane fan was created by The Curse.
