They’re starting to lose it in Gainesville.

I honestly have no idea what this means.

Points don’t matter as long as you get up early enough?  Wut?

I’m beginning to think this is going to be one of the weirder Cocktail Parties I’ve attended.

      I know I’m old, but when I was in school we did that pretty much every year. Dooley owned the Gators.

        Owned is a strong word – the only real beat down I can recall was 50something to nothing – but there were a lot of wins and they were fun games, indeed. Frequently some last minute dagger got plunged into the hearts of the Gators. Everyone knows “Run, Lindsay, run”, but for drama Appleby to Washington is pretty close. Too many recent games seemed like us losing rather than them winning. Just dispatch Mizzou as we expect and then don’t shit the sheets; that’s what I am hoping for.

          Okay, perhaps owned is a little strong, but we were confident of winning year in and year out. The idea that we wouldn’t beat Florida certainly seemed like a foreign concept for a long time.

            What does 8-21 in the 90s and 00s sound like? We’re acting awfully cocky on this blog about a team that has owned us for almost 30 years and is coming off two straight wins over us.

              Hey I ain’t naming it and claiming it, just pointing out that times were once different for some of us of a certain age. I don’t take a dang thing for granted any more. Including breathing. Heck, I didn’t relax until near the end of the third quarter against Vanderbilt.

              Mayor, I was pointing out that we owned the Gators in the 70-80s, which was the question. But to play your game, I’ll point out that we’re 3-3 in the current decade and 4-6 over the last ten meetings. And I’ll go so far as to say our current team looks nothing like our recent teams.

          The only blowouts from my childhood were ’82, ’85 and ’88. Arguably ’87 if you count 23-10. It seems like Florida got a garbage TD in that one.

            The 1968 team won 51-0 in a tropical storm. The Dawgs changed to tennis shoes at halftime and took mincing steps when cutting and speeding up while the gators slipped and slid in the UGA version of “the swamp”. Reflected lights on the field demonstrated half-acre “puddles” everywhere and a UGA Safety who now is retired in Hawaii had a great night.

        We beat them badly a couple of times in the 80s, but the games were generally pretty close. I remember 44-0 in 1982….that’s the biggest beat down I can recall.

    I’m convinced we’re going to put a real beating on the Gators. Kirby had them ready to play last year but our OL couldn’t protect Eason and it all fell apart. Don’t see that as a problem this year. I think we grind them down like the previous 3 weeks.

    If A&M takes them down, and I think that seems a reasonable possibility, there may be more red in JAX this season. FU fans are really up against it this year with their shortcomings and our being the flavor of the week. They stole one from TN, had one gifted to them from KY, got their buts bet by Michigan, and lost on homecoming to a struggling LSU. Many have given up on McElwain and his past recruiting issues and now this season is threatening the better class they have pledged to them for 2018. Only guy less popular than the HC is the OC. We may see Phat Phil and SOS called into action before this year is over. Good times!

    I probably shouldn’t post this – we do have to beat Mizzou first – but as long as we are talking about Dawg successes in the WLOCP there is this quote from Bill Stanfill, who played before the days S & C coaches and such:
    “Holding pigs for my dad to castrate was quite a challenge. I can’t say that helped prepare me for football, but it sure did remind me an awful lot of sacking Steve Spurrier.” Still makes me smile. 🙂

  25. Just as a means of explanation (no vouching for the uniforms – Nike $$ makes schools do some silly things). The statement is the final line of an opening video montage on the scoreboard used by the Gators prior to the team running out. It started about three years ago and has become quite popular. Hokey? Probably, but so are most college traditions.
