    Florida fans are arrogant and spoiled. They’ve always been arrogant and for the last 20 years, spoiled. Now they think it’s their birthright to be champions each year – a form of entitlement.

    Most of them are actually nice people who tend to side with me on most fiscal and social issues (conservative). But come fall, they turn into self-righteous douchebags who prove time and time again that they don’t know how to act when they win and act even worse when they lose.

    Get used to MF’ers. Here comes the downtrend.

      I see many similarities to UGA fans, and Braves fans for that matter, in the way Florida fans are perceived in this light. No, I am not saying UGA has as many obnoxious fans, but the whiney, spoiled characteristics look pretty close.

        Lover,
        you couldn’t be more wrong. obviously, you haven’t been around many FL fans the past several years.

        those jerks can’t sell out the Sugar Bowl? at least we sold our Independence allotment.

          With Tebow’s UF Degree in Family, Youth and Community Sciences (I feel certain that’s a BS Degree, isn’t it?) he is well equipped to be a “community organizer” after he is a total bust in the NFL.

          Don’t know how you interpreted my comment, but I was saying both UGA and Brave fans are equally as bad as UF. Yes, UF fans are bad, in many ways, but UGA fans are spoiled and negative too the point of being suicidal about anything less than a BCS Bowl or SEC East crown. I am not happy with 7-5 but when I consider the loss of Stafford, Moreno, MoMass, and Allen, then see the LSU game stolen by an “invented”, not bad, invented call and us give away a game against Kentucky that we totally dominated I see a team that was one sillly, unforced turnover from being 9-3. How can I be ready to jump from a ledge, after crying for four months about a team that was that close to 9-3? I can feel sorry what should have been, but to be mad enough to demand a complete overthrow of the coaches as many UGA fans did all year is over stating the problem in my view.

          I like the talent we have back next year and feel we could be the pick in the East for 2010. It is too early to make that call with high confidence, but given where everything stands today concerning talent, health, and who might be available, we look to be better than SC.

            You left out the nutball decision to open on the road at Okie State instead of playing a walkover team between the hedges as an opener. Following your analysis (which I agree with) that would get the Dawgs to a 10-2 regular season.

    I wonder if the loser of the SEC Championship game has faced this problem every year. Losing the conference championship is a big let down. Since the championship game was created I’ll bet the 3rd place SEC team has fared better in their bowl games than 2nd place team. Anybody want to do the research?

    With that being said, Gators can suck it.

    “And Florida can’t sell out its Sugar Bowl ticket allotment?” “Sagging economy” schmagging economy. Cincinnati isn’t having any problems selling tickets.

    On the “sacreligious” link, Tebow doesn’t graduate, he gradulates.

    “There is a messianic quality that at times is a bit creepy,” but it could have been worse. Had Tim gone to Notre Dame, he could have been as revered as Montana and Swarbrick would be having him leaving for the Vatican soon to be the moyle Pope tycoon…

    But Tim didn’t go to Notre Dame. Prior to choosing to worship at the altar of Urban or was it the other way around, Tim teased Mike Shula so much that he caused Shula to get fired and Tim’s incoming karma for that transgression was that Shula’s replacement coach thumped him.

    For those or us who appreciate subtitles because it makes us feel like we’re multilingual, we’ll always have this blog and this video to remember him by as he rides off after the Sugar Bowl onto Poydras Street in the combat zone that is New Orleans. Thank you Tim for making us feel special…

    A poll for you mutts.

    The high point of the UGA season was

    1. Gators lose to Bama in SECCG.
    2. Tebow doesn’t win Heisman.
    3. Gators can’t sell all Sugar Bowl tickets.
    4. Tebow graduates
    5. Bid to weed wacker bowl.

          We thought the same thing last year.

          You’re going to lose:
          1) The most successful and talented senior class in UF history;
          2) Your QB, who also happens to be your best RB and principal red zone threat;
          3) Up to 12 juniors who will attempt to join the NFL;
          4) the easy schedule you’ve enjoyed the past two years.

          In addition, your recruiting class last year wasn’t rated that highly.

          Dude, I’m being objective here. You’re going to have a tough year. In haiku format:

          Our seniors are gone.
          Our juniors leave us for cash.
          Who will save us now?

      No. Beating Tech at Grant and firing our DC were the highpoints.

      Seeing you lose to Bama along with the Tebow crying shots was nice, but expected.

      You worry about replacing your displaced coaches, soon-to-gone players, and your upcoming downtrend.

      Dead heat between #1 and #5.

      Who cannot appreciate seeing Urban lose but how often do you get a chance to go to a bowl that, until KY Personal Lubricant Yours + Mine Heated Jelly Spread opts to sponsor one, will have had the absolute best sponsor of all-time because got ‘weed’, ‘eater’ and almost a ‘wacker’ in it.

      None of those were our high points, but I like your order of events. Perhaps you should re-title your poll, “Gator fans reasons for why our season sucked afterall”

      Re: #5 I’d even put something snarky about how our playing Texas A&M is superior to playing a coachless Cincy….but I really can’t. Instead, I’ll just borrow a phrase I heard forever in the PSS era (pre Steve u-no-who)…wait till next year.

    “what kids do in their spare time”

    This will only increase Lane’s burning desire to steal them from Urban. That’s not called cheating. That’s called recruiting Lane-style.

    Andy Staples evens out his shot v. Lane of the Orange Dream hostesses photo in which they have the almost let’s get ready to love ’em up looks in their eyes while hanging onto Byrnes players with this shot v. Urban of the Gator youngsters…

    http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2009/writers/andy_staples/12/17/orr-trail/index.html

    What’s next Andy? A photo of Richt having caffeinated iced tea on a church camp work trip? The Hat with his hat on sideways or Trooper Taylor? Nick sitting on a toilet dispelling the notion that he doesn’t have time for it? The SEC Head Coaches are entitled to their privacy just as is Tiger. Andy, leave them alone!

    Let those very few among us, if any, who were not members of a gang or a Collect Money (Lunch) Cartel or pistol shooters when we were in middle school be the first to tell Urban that maybe he should have taken the Notre Dame job before Kelly did. The rest of us want Urban to hang around so we can even up some things with him.
