  1. With Jimbo getting all the good talent in Florida, I see why Urban has to travel the world to recruit players. Gator Nation, your little run is over. Timmy is off making an absolute embarrassment of himself in the NFL…..oh, wait, he can’t, because he’s been deactivated. That’s right. It’s tough to look too awful when you are not even the backup. Anyway, I hope you enjoyed your four-year run. Please have medical staff nearby for when Urban has his meltdown after the game Saturday night. If he has a heart attack after shaking the winning hand of Saban, I want him to get the best treatment available.

    FSU is back, baby!

    Go Noles!
