re: Which SEC school has the most bandwagon / sidewalk fans? - bgator85
[quote]The answer is likely to be the state with the highest population, rather than the one with the highest bandwagon tendencies; I would, therefore, lean to Florida. Plenty of 'Gator' fans have no link to the university itself, and even those college educated generally went elsewhere in the state...

re: Is this the worst the SEC's been in Basketball since '92? - bgator85
[quote]Recent history.....UF went to 4 straight elite 8s from 2011-2014. only a handfull of teams can even say that. [/quote] And that included a 36-3 Final Four team in 2014 that came in as the #1 overall seed. Encouraged by what I see of us so far this year. Definitely look like a top 25 t...

re: Why Everyone in the SEC, Fans Included, Owes the Florida Gators - bgator85
It is the second part of that article that highlights an issue that has bothered some around UF over the last few years. Had a good thing going with SunSports that had to be set aside for the conference to move forward with the SEC Network. ...

re: SEC Women's Soccer Tournament Update - bgator85
[quote]No. 4 Florida[/quote] Might be the first firing of the new AD. Used to at least always win the SEC, but they've been seriously underperforming in the postseason the last several years. Program not where it should be. ...

re: Thank you Jeremy Foley! - bgator85
[quote]Best moves he ever made was pussying out of the Miami rivalry and refusing to play an OOC road game against any team not named Florida State. [/quote] We stopped playing Miami annually before Foley. The funny thing is that you say he wouldn't play an OOC road game against anyone not na...

re: Thank you Jeremy Foley! - bgator85
[quote]Folley was OK but gets way too much credit. He hired Spurrier and Meyer but also Muschamps and Zook. Facilities are mediocre for SEC standards. He isn't all that he is cracked up to be. [/quote] The number of AD's that can match his accomplishments are few and far between. The remarkab...

re: WLOCP Veterans: Is trashing the parking lot a common thing? - bgator85

They aren't offering counseling specifically for this, they said if needed take...

That is why losing LSU hurt without a compromise. The home schedule next year now includes Tennessee, A&M, LSU and FSU. Neutral site with Michigan and UGA. Works out fine after next season. ...

[quote]Now you're reaching for a specious point. Let's just say that the game was rescheduled until Monday. Saturday morning is the last reasonable time to finalize preparations. [/quote] I believe it is an assumption the offer was not made, I was merely suggesting that is also possible the off...

re: Sec Country: LSU/UF fact and fiction(long) - bgator85
[quote]Why didn't UF agree to schedule the game on Monday, and that way buy some more time to see what the effects of the storm would be? [/quote] This is making the assumption that the SEC and the other involved parties are OK with postponing the decision and then still further postponing/cancel...

re: Sec Country: LSU/UF fact and fiction(long) - bgator85
[quote]they never did any of that.[/quote] The press releases from UF said that the game was scheduled for noon Saturday with the caveat that they were monitoring updates for potential changes in time. The whole waiting too long thing is pointless. The game was never getting moved to Baton Ro...
