Because they can’t help it.

I’m having a hard time coming to grips with the depths to which Florida has sunk this season after its first loss ever to a 1-AA opponent.  Every time I think I’ve got it figured out, I see something else that makes me start shaking my head again.

You want to blame it on the injuries?  Fine, but Florida wasn’t the only banged up team playing in the Swamp yesterday.

You want to blame it on an inept offense?  Fine, too, except you may not understand how inept that offense is.

The Gators are so mixed up they’re blocking themselves.  That’s how you lose to a team that doesn’t complete a single pass on the day.  Unbelievable.

    Damn… I actually feel bad for Florida. What an awful feeling!

    I would add that the triple option can be really effective against a team that is unfamiliar & gives lackadaisical effort ( as we learned in 2008).

    If UF played Tech every year, they don’t lose yesterday.

    As an aside, how many people in Montana have heard of Georgia Southern?


  4. What a terrible team Florida is! Auburn’s back in the thick and then Florida goes down the drain. Better them than us.

    It couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch. May they forever be 0-12.


    • POST Georgia Southern Apocalypse via Alligator Army Blog. This is good stuff and they will need a case of VIagra just so they can show up and pretend to compete again. They can’t do it by themselves sports fans. Joy is on the way.

      “When the football program at a school suffers, especially for a football-mad school like Florida, the school suffers. But this is not a death knell. Florida, after all, plays other sports. The Gators volleyball team is well-positioned to make a deep NCAA Tournament run. Florida’s men’s basketball team is exciting, as deep as it has ever been — yes, including those national championship squads — and will be in the limelight a lot in the next month.And when the spring season starts, Florida’s most exciting teams will be in action. The men’s track and field, softball, gymnastics, and men’s swimming and diving teams all have legitimate NCAA title aspirations, and women’s tennis, women’s swimming and diving, women’s track and field, lacrosse, and baseball have copiously talented rosters. None of those teams will finish 4-8, I promise, and they’ll all bring you joy in one way or another — and you’ll be one more fan for a team that deserves many more fans, as all of those teams do.”

        Talk about some guy (or quite possibly squaw) scratching the bottom of his soul for answers in his hopeless world. That’s beautiful.

    I keep looking for the LSUFreek signature on that pic. Even though it’s not there, I keep giggling like it was.

    That is one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen.

    Interesting, that with crucial injuries all over the offense…and a couple on defense, we managed to have a decent season.

    Could be coaching…or it could be coaching.

    That should be a holding penalty.
