Jessamen Dunker, you will be missed.

I tell you what – Florida football has proven itself good for some chuckles this week.  With the news that Gator offensive lineman and scooter maven Jessamen Dunker has elected to further his talents elsewhere, we learn that Dunker didn’t play well with the others.

But it should also be noted that Dunker was regarded by many as a bit of an outsider in a Florida locker room that has seemed more mature and composed in recent months. There’s this Robbie Andreu tweet…

…and there were comments calling Dunker “kind of a shithead” and “not a stand-up citizen” in Inside the Gators’ Parting Shots series ($), so it’s possible that Dunker’s departure is related to being a misfit in Muschamp’s new football culture as well as his arrest.

Gee, nobody likes being a misfit, especially in Boom’s “new football culture”, whatever the hell that is, so if there’s a personality clash, it’s probably for the best… wait, what?

Despite those character concerns, Dunker was likely to get a shot to play as a rotation lineman with the Gators if he made it made into Muschamp’s good graces and onto the team…

Meet the new football culture in Gainesville, same as the old football culture.

    “But it should also be noted that Dunker was regarded by many as a bit of an outsider in a Florida locker room that has seemed more mature and composed in recent months.”….So the team has become an image of the coach…composed and all of that. You could just see it in their faces on the sideline last year…they would look at Mschmp and say to themselves..”Coach..he ain’t sweating nothin’. I’m going to strive to be cool like him”.
    How many years of eligability does Dunker have left? If he was going to be the Gators rotating O lineman, that’s gotta hurt their depth.

    We are going to beat the remaining shitheads for the 3rd year in a row come late October.


  3. Go Dawgs!

    He was likely to get into the offensive line rotation anyway BECAUSE THEY DON’T HAVE AN OFFENSIVE LINE. That little point escapes Alligator Army when they predict SEC and national championships for their team this year. They can be excused for being homers, but the rest of the media’s along for the ride, too, though they aren’t going quite as far as predicting a BCS win. Several Gator fans were bemoaning the transfer yesterday on message boards because it makes them even more thin up front. If a few ACLs get popped in the first half of the season, it could be a race to the bottom of the division, not the top.

    “Meet the new football culture in Gainesville, same as the old football culture.”

    Boom’s publicist strongly disagrees and has released a statement sponsored by Müller Greek Yogurt and brought to you by Gene Chizik that there has been no unauthorized automatic, semi- or full, weapon(s) fire; use of dead person(s) credit or debit, or both, card(s); and/or death threat(s) to person(s) outside the program not on moped(s) and not named after donut shop inhabitant(s). Efforts to reach Hog Johnson’s receptionist(s) to confirm the allegations in the press release have been thus far been unsuccessful except for her hopeful comment that she thinks Hog is “cautiously optimistic” about her.

      She has since released a further statement, “If the Dunker don’t fit, you’ve got to acquit, amirite?”

    They will have a strong defense, but that offense could get pretty hideous. Gators are going 9-3. Book it

      I thinking 8-4 regular season with a loss in the bowl for 8-5 in 2013. Losses– UGA, USCe, LSU and either FSU or Miami. I also believe the Gators may have a problem with Missouri in Columbia.

    Let’s see; Purifoy is coming off a marijuana bust totally free and if he gets near it again this summer, he will be suspended. Riiiightt! Don’t think that “vaunted” (so say some of you and the homer pundits) defense will make it through the summer intact now that they know they can smoke with impunity when protected by the school.

    Now that they have lost one to the F’ing Scooters Corp, that means their O will be even better than pre-dickted by the pundits. And Driskel will be pushed for the Heisman ahead of the season opener since he has unimproved his way to a wonderful QB. I get more and more impressed each article. FUall.

    Boom is such a stand up quality guy, who sets such a good example of appropriate behavior and language…


  9. Why does it seem like Driskel is getting more preseason love than Murray? Shouldn’t Murray be a preseason front runner for the Heisman?

      Nobody doesn’t like Sara Lee and Boomer and nobody wants to get face blistered in 37F at noon games?
