So John, you say, ”I see a 7-5 or 8-4 record.”
Please tell us, who will beat U.F. as of today?
Have you even seen the ”schedule”? It favors U.F.!
I will help ya’ out, here:
Charleston Southern (hoe opener), U.K. (home), Colorado State (Thanks Mac!), Tennessee (away), Miss. State (Thanks Dan, for knowing the roster.), L.S.U. (Thanks…[Read more]

Who? Soccer?!?! …negative!
Come on down man, and dish ’em out! Best wishes for your Orange & Blue future, young man.
One thing is for certain, the social media ‘dis’-information is an intangible that most coaches of the Gator past NEVER had to deal with. Two of the ‘dis’-informers are here on this site right above me, and it’s obvious who they are.
Honestly, the offense looked better than I expected, even though they started out slowly.
The player makers are…[Read more]
”At times we looked like a top-10 team (last season) and at times we looked like an NIT team…” -Best quote in story, and in fairness, the last 3 reg. season games were EXCEPTIONAL for U.F. B-ball and Coach White and his staff.
”White knows that the expectations remain high at UF, where championship seasons are considered a birthright.”…[Read more]
FLORIDA GATORS FOOTBALL.

”You may say I’m a dreamer. But I’m NOT the only one.” -John Lennon.
Florida could, I’m NOT saying they should, but could be 7-0 going into U.G.A. game on 10/27/’18. Florida could lose that game, fall out of S.E.C. East championship race, and still win the next 4 for an 11-1 season, not too bad! As F.S.U. needs to be humbled by U.F., AGAIN!…[Read more]

Go Gators! Just Do It!
Fornigator, Malik’s injury has been under more secrecy than ”Area 51”. So, in my opinion, it was a very severe knee injury. Like an A.C.L. tear (see John Egbunu on how long that will take to heal) if that is, in fact, his injury. But here’s hoping he’s well enough for next Fall. But, ya’ NEVER know!

”This macho crap has permeated the game for too long.” -Pat Dooley.
Football in its entirety is a game of ”macho crap”, Pat. The soft teams get 4-7 records at the end of the year. While I agree hurling your body through the air like a missile is a dangerous thing (to the missile and to the recipient), it’s what we once called, ”spearing”.…[Read more]
”Florida’s defense might be elite. It’s always difficult to tell from scrimmages…”
-Pat Dooley. (March 30, ’18)
”There weren’t many standouts on defense aside from the players with picks, although sophomore corner Brian Edwards, a Miramar High grad, made an impressive tackle on Pierce.”
”While no stats were kept, it was clear that…[Read more]

Pat, nice article (I, too, like the Sir Charles’ bit). Sparky, AMEN! Before all the Final Four’s in both basketball and football (now), we had some amazing memorable seasons at U.F. (especially in football before all the post-season T.V. hoopla). For me, personally (and in-person), it started with James Jones’ catch, falling backwards into the…[Read more]

NCAA magic was in full-effect last year against Wisconsin. Thank You Cheese! It will forever live in Gator folklore! This year U.F. made mistakes, but still made the NCAA’s, finished 3rd in a very TOUGH S.E.C.!
So, thank you Gators! Gators for life! Mike White is a great coach who will only grow into a better one each season!
Florida is 44-17 (.721) all-time at the NCAA Tourney. So for starters Gator fans, not many in the S.E.C. can say that! And this team was exciting as a championship caliber team at times (beating Gonzaga, beating Duke for 30 minutes, beating U.K. TWICE, beating Auburn, getting even with ‘Bama.) Then there were let downs, too (although that Loyola…[Read more]
I’ll be rooting for these Gators just as hard as I was rooting for the Vernon Maxwell and Dwayne Schintzius’ Gators, way back in the 80’s, during their tourney run. Same team, different players, but all GATORS!
So, I hope this team goes far, but… well, you said it best, Pat… none the less, ”Go Gators!
I agree with many of Wadeless’ comments. I would only add the big men for U.F. need much improvement over the next 7 months or so, before the ’18-’19 basketball season begins.
This statement is a fact and not an opinion: this year only ‘2’ of the ”’bigs” for U.F. played and contributed significantly for Florida: and they were Hayes and Stone,…[Read more]
Go up the ”Gateway to the West Arch”, Pat. And also check out Billy the kid’s guns. THE REAL BILLY THE KID, too! Sorry Coach Donovan. But they were in the museum below the Arch (back in the 70’s, at least).
Safe travels and GO GATORS, and BEAT THE RAZORBACKS! As we’re eating pork tonight, late tonight too!
I got Florida vs. wait for it… Auburn, yea, Auburn (feeling slighted lately) in the SEC Tourney Finals.
And Florida will have 3 reasons to play really hard, some BLING! A shirt, hat, and RING that says,
”SEC Tournament Champions! Go Gators, and safe travels to all who venture West!
