A special year in orange and blue

According to Alligator Armyeven if Florida has a bad season, it’s still good, because “Florida will be able to cut Muschamp loose without that move being cutting off its nose to spite its face”.   That’s one helluva silver lining, fellas.

If I’d tried to argue something like that with a straight face about Georgia after 2010, I’d have been laughed off the Intertubes.

    Here is hoping they lose EVERY game.

    There is a progression of fan mentality as a team begins to suck. The mantra “I hope we lose so they’ll fire the coach”, or the “Silver Lining to Sucking” being displayed in prominent Gator thought- sharing places tells us that the moral in the swamp is lower thans alligator shit…which rests on the bottom of the mire. You can see the nasty lumps bulging up as the swamp goes dry…..and see the gators, all seeking dwindling refuge, wallowing around in the nastiness of it all, crawling all over each other.
    That’s what a “Silver Lining” looks like in a swamp.

    • That is one hell of a metaphor.

      Excellent! I can see that you’ve already got the playbook for The Five Stages of Getting Rid of a Mole a/k/a Tinker Tailor Boom Goes the Dynamite!

      That progression also includes:

      • false claims of moral superiority (Georgia fans know this well);
      • false claims of intellectual superiority aka the “work for me someday”; and
      • and the final, desperate claim of “we have more class”.

      When the fanbase plays the class card, that’s when you know it is over.

    The level of unrealism expressed by Florida fans is starting to approach that of the AU and GTU fanbases.

    South Carolina, however, remains the gold standard for trippin’ by fans. At least AU and GTU were good at some point in their histories.

    You gotta love the news coming out of UF lately!

    Here’s hoping they go 8-4 & keep Muschamp another couple of years…

      That’s too close; 9-3 with losses to UGA, SC and FSU. You know, just enough so we still finish ahead of them in the East race…

      • Gravidy

        That would be my vote as well.

        • I Wanna Red Cup

          I would like a 9-3 with losses to Bama, UGA and SC, then at the last minute Boom beats FSU to knock them out of the 4 team playoff securing a spot for the DAWGS. And they keep Agent Muschamp around and extend his contract.

    Alligator Army? More like the Skink Squad…

      All the skinks that get into my house are black. It takes all I can do bag ‘em up at least the ones I don’t kill. I’ve never seen a gator-colored one before

        Mole skinks. They’re all over the woods in NE FL. Saw one Sunday at Talbot Island. Saw a bunch of FU fans, too. They really are a delusional bunch.
        Thanks for the musical palate cleanser. The RD soundtrack has a few more hidden gems in it.
