Fake juice

“That wasn’t right. It was a bad deal. It will forever be in the mind of Urban Meyer and in the mind of our football team. We’ll handle it, and it’s going to be a big deal.”

I guess Corch wasn’t kidding about that “forever” part.

Just remember the words of Ryan Stamper, Gators.


UPDATE:  On the other hand

“When they show a clip, I start laughing about it,” said Georgia fifth-year senior fullback Bruce Figgins, who was on the field on the play as a freshman tight end that season.

    2007 wasn’t fake juice. Seemed pretty real to me. Now 2009 – that’s another story…….

    “Even for offensive coordinator Charlie Weis, who is new to the traditional border war, it’s the one thing that stands out in his knowledge of Florida-Georgia.
    “I just remember watching that game a few years ago when the 9,000 guys were partying in the end zone,” he said.”

    Probably because of the buy week at Subway, Charlie* confuses the number of guys partying in the end zone with the number of sandwiches to be packed into his sideline coolers

    It’s not clear to me why FL players and fans can get all twisted up over the endzone dance, call is disrespect, etc, but the GEORGIA folks aren’t allowed to recall Spurrier running up the score in ’95 IN ATHENS or Meyer calling the timeouts at the end of 2008.

    Exactly why are Gator people allowed to claim “disrespect” while GEORGIA and everyone else just has to say “oh well”? Is it because FL considers themselves untouchable? In their minds, are they beyond reproach? Are they beyond embarrassment? Are they beyond mockery?

    F*CK NO they aren’t! So why does nobody Frankie Hammond and the rest of the coward bastards continue to harp on this?

    Hey Frankie, Charlie, Will, Urban, and every single gross-ass gator fan alive, how’s this: GO F*CK YOURSELVES!

    See you Saturday you whiny bitches.

    • JaxDawg

      some words from Patrick Garbin, to help illustrate my point:

      In watching all of Dooley’s second-half replacements, I recalled the times Steve Spurrier ran the score up in the very same rivalry whenever given the opportunity. Some examples:

      Late in the game in 1990, with the contest having been settled long before, Spurrier sent his first-team defense back onto the field to prevent Georgia from merely picking up a first down. With a 38-13 lead the following year, All-American quarterback Shane Matthews wasn’t replaced until Florida’s next-to-last offensive series, and even when the starter was finally sidelined, backup Brian Fox passed for a touchdown with less than two minutes to play. In 1998, Spurrier punctuated another blowout Gators victory with a wide receiver reverse for a touchdown with mere seconds remaining. I could go on…

      Now, the Florida faithful says Spurrier had very good reason to pull his classless acts against the Bulldogs. Let me add, however, there’s a few inaccuracies in the Gators’ “Dooley-running-up-the-score-in-’68-is-the-reason-Spurrier-hates-Georgia” story. For one, the “offensive lineman” that kicked the field goal for the game’s final points was actually Peter Rajecki – the Bulldogs’ backup placekicker, who had kicked a PAT earlier and would attempt several more field goals at Georgia from 1968 to 1970. Also, the final field goal resulting with “with less than two minutes left to go” (another version of the story states “with seconds to go”) actually occurred with 5:29 remaining – an eternity.

      Nevertheless, the aforementioned seems to be yet another exaggerated story by a bunch of disgruntled Gators. In Dooley’s defense, unlike Spurrier, he wasn’t much of one for running up the score on the opposition. Take the 1982 pummeling of Florida, for example. Danny Greene saw action at quarterback against the Gators, for God’s sake! And from what I hear, Dooley even had E.T. on the sideline warming up to go in…

      • Mike

        I love the smell of whining about RUTS in the morning. It smells like…VICTORY

        • James Stephenson

          It’s not whining. Really, there has been some stupid stuff done in this series in the last 20 years and the worst of it was not even the dance. Hell if I recall, after the dance, Florida went up 17-14 and then lost. So the dance did not fire up the Gators then.

          But to call 2 times outs in a 30 point win, in the last minute, now that is classless, something GA would and has never done to FU. To attempt to gouge out a player’s eyes while he is on the ground and then only getting suspended for a half, that is classless.

          Granted the GA player dry humping a florida player in the early 2000’s was also classless, but at least a flag was thrown then.

          • Puffdawg

            This is a great example of Gator sportsmanship. Play to the echo (of the echo of the echo of the echo of the echo) of the whistle indeed…

          • Mike

            Damn, I love it when UGA fans defend the dance. I had no problems with the dance, but it WAS an action that garnered the team not one but two…wait for it….UNSPORTSMANLIKE penalties. So, if a team does not display sportsmanship, can they be called classy?

            Yet, in the same breath, some UGA fans will call the times outs a CLASSLESS. Even though doing so was perfectly within the rules.

            The juxtaposition of these two contradictory points of view just tickles my funny bones and makes me smile

            • JaxDawg

              you’re confusing the letter and the spirit of the law. Common mistake for FL law school grads.

            • fuelk2

              I’m not about to say the celebration was classy, but it also wasn’t rubbing an opponent’s nose in a game that was clearly over. You’re missing the kicking a guy when he’s down element there.

              You guys had 55 minutes or so to respond but just didn’t have the ability to stop Knowshon.

            • H-Town Dawg

              Fake juice is when Gator fans claim to still be “offended” by the endzone celebration from years ago and try to use that as a motivator. The fact is that the only thing that Gators find offensive is that the Dawgs kicked their f*cking asses in that game. Unsportsmanlike conduct is SOP for the Gators, so the idea that anything of THAT nature offends them is ridiculous.

              On Saturday the Dawgs will eliminate this particular Gator talking point by giving them a new ass-whipping to whine about.

              • gastr1

                I don’t see how anyone is defending the dance (or anything at all, really). Looks to me like people are accusing, rather accurately, the Gators of being historically poor sports.

                Gotta know the accusation to properly defend it, it seems, Mike.

            • Hennigan

              Mike, you really are a douche.

                • Mike

                  Indeed. This is my favorite college football weekend. No matter what is at stake, no matter which team is favored, no matter what thre records might be, no matter who is hurt and who is not, no matter who is playing and who is not, no matter if the weather is supposed to be hot or cold, THIS IS FLORIDA/GEORGIA WEEKEND!!!!

                  It just does not get any better.

          • Cojones

            Was the flag thrown on FU for being a bad lay?

  5. SCDawg

    What’s wild is reading those comments. Two that stand out: “Richt will never fire Martinez.” “If Garner isn’t offered the DC position, he’ll walk.”

    I said we would be lucky to go 6-6 after the FL game. Shows what we know.

  6. Puffdawg

    Go back and read the comments on the thread you linked. Good lord what a dysfunctional bunch. Just goes to show the porgnosticating skills of this bunch is limited, at best.

  7. Orl Dawg

    How do you really feel JaxDawg? My sentiments exactly. Why do they always say the endzone celebration gave them motivation for future years? The play happened in the first quarter. They had 3 quarters to get revenge that day; but they couldn’t because UGA busted them in the mouth all day. So, Corch had to wait until the following year at the very end of the game to call some timeouts. Now that’s revenge!!

    the Dawgs need to put a beatdown on the Gators Saturday….Go Dawgs!!!

  8. Go Dawgs!

    Charlie Weis is a fat sack of shit. If he’s that completely devoid of self-respect, I don’t feel the need to respect anything about him. Not his opinions, not his recollections of football games that were played while he was crushing Notre Dame further into the ground under his hulking weight, nothing. The only thing I find even remotely worthy of respect is the skill of the jeweler who managed to fashion three Super Bowl rings large enough in diameter to accomodate the sausages he calls finger. Go choke on a cinnabon, you fat, worthless sack of Gator lard.

    Time to dance, bitches!

  11. HamDawg11

    Oh yes, it is definitely hate week. I’m on this board daily and I can’t recall this kind of language and vitriol being invoked in a long time. I HATE UF!!! I’m generally a good sport about things like not running up the score, or rubbing the opponents’ faces in it, but I’m all for it this week. Let’s beat ’em by 50 if we can. But, even if we just beat ’em by 1, it’ll be just as sweet!

  12. Hogbody Spradlin

    Oh please, kids, Florida kids that is. Let’s see. Florida stomped the tiger at LSU midfield a few years back. Then there was the Gator Flop against Miami back in John Reaves days. Then there was Corch. Then there was little Stevie.

    It isn’t 1968 that gave Spurrier his chip on the shoulder. It’s 1966, the year Spurrier won the Heisman, God’s gift to college football and all that. In the second half of the Georgia game that year, the Spurrier led Florida offense got zero first downs. Zip. Zilch. Bupkus. Nada. Goose egg. Bagel. George Patton (what a name) and Bill Stanfill absolutely pounded Spurrier into the ground.

    I’m a soft living 55 year old man, and I think any player who professes offense at 2007, after Corch’s time outs and 3 straight wins, is a stupid college boy looking for anything to get fired up. Georgia has its share of boneheads too, but that kid in the article is full of it.

    Besides, it makes me think Florida still has an inferiority complex, even after 3-18.

    • Puffdawg

      What does it say about the overall dominance of a series when one program wins 18 out of 21 and STILL trails by seven wins?

      And for some reason, this song reminds me of Rainey…

    • Me

      Lynn Hughes also had a hand in that game.

      • Cojones

        Lynn Hughes, the most accurate 5yd passer in SEC history, but he had a lot of victories to show for it with the help of the above mentioned players plus the leading interceptions player in the country. Those were wild SEC games and days. Every game was like a championship after putting down the NCs with the herringbone hatted coach. Never forget that Ga-Fu game in the big rainstorm when we wore tennis shoes to help our moves without sliding , meanwhile FU defense was sliding 5yds anytime they tried to cut and follow a receiver. Kirby Moore. Ahhh, the greatest nonthrowing QB in history. Just put it over the line 5-10yds for receivers when FU stacked the box. Great memories youall are bringing to this old heart.

        • Me

          When this game was played, Hughes had been moved to safety, and caught a couple of spurrier’s passes. (Lower case intentional).

    • JaxDawg

      The interesting thing about this post is that Florida DOES have an inferiority complex. After 20 years of winning, they still act like the new kid on the block. Is it b/c for 100 years all everyone heard from Florida was “we’re gonna be great this year” and “we’re loaded this year” and “this year is OUR year”, etc, etc. Never backing it up, always earning laughter from Georgia, Alabama, LSU, Auburn, Tennessee, etc. The saying goes “Florida – all the arrogance of Notre Dame with the history of Vanderbilt”.

      For all their winning over the past two decades, they still haven’t learned to win with class and still haven’t gotten over their little brother complex.

      • Hogbody Spradlin

        And THEIR legendary coach is more famous for arrogance than any other quality.

      • Mike

        No, we don’t think we are the new kids on the block. We just never get tired of beating the crap out of Georgia. We take great delight in beating UGA by one point or a bazillion points. No matter how often it happens.

        Sadly, beating Georgia may not happen this year.

        • JaxDawg

          your program is a very good one and it should be. Plenty of in-state athletes, plenty of financial resources, a population twice that of Georgia’s, a fanbase that demands a winner, an administration and community solidly behind creating success for your team (Machen, Foley, Huntley, police, professors, etc. etc) – with all this going for your program, why do your fans and those associated with the school feel the need to gloat and boast and whine and bitch and moan and generally feel as though you are above reproach? You know, other states and programs have these same resources, in fact, some have more in certain respects. To feel that the gators are and will always be “#1” in all areas is arrogant and stupid. Deadly combo. I’d even say FL fans are unconsciously ignorant to this, which is an even more of a deadly combination.

          Oh well, it makes the comeuppance even that more harsh. Here’s to a tough fought but clean game Saturday.

          • Cojones

            Yeah, but they do have more rednecks chering for’em than we do. They drink more Nats and Bud than we do. The new law on beastiality has spotlighted their celebration some, but there’s still suspicion they’re finding goats(they say they like their big tits) and pigs(they love to hear them squeal) in the dark.

            • Mike

              Redneck talk from a Georgia fan? Something about a pot and teakettle come to mind right about now.

              Dude, I have lived in Georiga for over 10 years now. I have driven up and down just about every pig path in this state. Not sure Georgia has any shortage of that type.

              • Cojones

                You’re stalking our livestock? Or just looking for a party?

                • Mike

                  Well, the livestock IS generally better looking than most of the human females around those parts, all sporting t-shirts with the big G on it.

              • Cojones

                “every pig path”? You like the squeelers, huh?

                Warning to all Georgians. Lock up your livestock and keep your pets indoors after dark! The beastiality perps are scouting north since they passed a law in Fla. Finding a kid with a mullet and jorts on your property ain’t just coincidence.

      • W Cobb Dawg

        Tell it brother!

    • Puffdawg

      Is this what you refer to?

      • JaxDawg

        see Puff, that’s just it. In the mind of a FL fan, these incidents never happened. It’s fine for them to show their asses (which they are very good ate) but the other schools dare not “disrespect” the gators. This is why they are the SEC’s most hated school and most fun to beat. Been that way for over 80 years, waaay before Spurrier.

        • Mike

          Hey Jax. What happened in 2007 at the end of the Georgia/Vandy game?

          • Hogbody Spradlin

            Oh, but that’s different!

          • fuelk2

            I’ll help. UGA players celebrated near the site of a made field goal at midfield. This was justifiably perceived as stomping on Vandy’s logo and probably was for some of the players.

            Their coach then damn near killed them on the field and lamented to the sideline reporter that his team didn’t know how to act.

  13. Skeeter

    All these players and corches need to get over themselves, both sides, all teams. It’s a freekin’ football field. If you’ve got some Holy logo or beloved mascot to bury, put it off to the side. People are gonna jump up and down and stomp and run and piss all over a playing field. It’s not like any players can tell exactly what stupid azz logo they’re standing on anyway. Let ’em eat the grass, pull branches from the hedges and celebrate. That stuff grows back. Can’t even stand it when folks go all religious about The Hedges. I love ’em, but damn, sh*tz privet! Not like you could kill it if you tried. I’m more offended they tore it out and then had the gall to play soccer there than any winning football team taking some branches. Just GATA and put ’em on the ground when you get the @$$. Go Dawgs!

  14. Dog in Fla

    Now is the time for all of us Internet Badasses of the World to Unite and come to the aid of their Marks countrymen! I’m already in the back of the bus at the Greyhound depot killing bats


    We’re just not going to stand back and take this kind of shit anymore*

    If we win, and I think we will by 14, everything will be beautiful. Mark’s job will be saved at least until Auburn. But if we don’t, we will have a reason or two for it, e.g., the rain caused our interceptions, he should have worn the glove, who told him to take it off, fire Bobo, no one could have predicted that they would successfully run a fake punt v. us, it was hot, who could have known they would be able to execute the fair catch of a punt from us, it was wet, it was an away game, neutral my ass, it was their home game, that’s why they call it the gator bowl, we didn’t expect they could run a successful single wing offense v. us two years in a row, find out who coaches special teams and fire him, it was cold, it was too close to sea level, weak sauce, it was too windy, our coaches suck, we need a new set, onside kick, all their coaches past present and future suck, run up the score, fake juice, the officials – of course, they suck, why not only call penalties on us when they catch us, the gators held us on every play and didn’t get flagged once, it’s Franklin’s fault, we were looking into the sun, it’s Marks’ fault, they had their first string quarterback back who had a career day with one good ankle, he’s a Heisman contender now, that’s Todd’s fault, Mark’s not hardass enough, Will’s too much of a hardass, Charlie’s too much of a lard…, Todd can’t be crazy now since they muzzled him and Todd can’t coach if he can’t be crazy, they’ve taken all the life out of Todd, why can’t Mark be crazy like Todd used to be, the usual suspects on the list of replacement coaches (if we get another L get a crazy coach like Leach now before Tulane does), there should be a gross tonnage limit on coordinators, it wasn’t windy enough, we weren’t looking into the sun, and hold my Natty Lite while I whip the asses of these sorry-ass jort-wearing mullet-headed gator fans on the series of tubes
