Your Daily Gator got into the Kool-Aid again.

Geez, this isn’t even a message board post; it’s from one of the Swamp247 dudes.  And it’s spectacular.

“I look at the macro sense of where Florida’s at as a program, where Georgia’s at as a program and I say that 2019 is the year Florida has to capitalize,” I said on the podcast. “I don’t think there’s any way around it.

“I think Florida right now, Florida’s success with Dan Mullen is going to be viewed through a Georgia lens. When Will Muschamp and Jim McElwain were coaching at Florida, even when Will Muschamp had his 11-win regular season, Florida State was clearly building. And then the very next year they go and they win a national title. So despite the fact that (Florida) had success, they were viewed in this lens where you’re also looking at one of your biggest rivals and clearly they’re outdoing you.

“I think in the same way this year, even if Florida has a great year, if Georgia goes and finally breaks through, it’s going to leave Florida fans a little bit disappointed. Florida’s got to beat Georgia eventually. I don’t even know if that has to happen head-to-head. But I think this year is the year where you have to see Florida really, really kind of put their stamp down and say, ‘We’re not going anywhere.'”

If you think about it, ‘We’re not going anywhere’ makes for a great double entendre.

    “If you think about it, ‘We’re not going anywhere’ makes for a great double entendre.”

    I thought that when Kirby made that comment, I expected to hear our rivals use it against us as a joke.
    I just don’t see how UF is going to make that ‘stamp’ this year. It doesn’t appear to me that ole Dan has turned the culture yet…if he is even going to. Kirby was recruiting at the highest level while we were going through our struggles on the field. It has been the opposite for Dan. So, I don’t see how he is going to build that team to compete with the talent he will face at Georgia. If, after this season Dan begins to recruit at a higher level, I would be more inclined to believe the program is on the rise. I guess we’ll see.

    I hate Florida, enough to never buy Gatorade and remind my daughter that if she want orange juice its only granted as a temporary waiver from my “no orange in this house” policy.

    But I hope they don’t crater like FSU has, I hope their team is better than TN and that they are at least able to be ranked in the top 15 nationally. We need a strong east as it just makes things better. Better competition, better games week in and out, better bowl games.

    We shall see, its been fun watching Kirby develop his program and its really fun to beat all of our rivals.

      “We need a strong east as it just makes things better.”
      True enough
      But you can always pray that Vandy and Kentucky become top 15 teams and Florida and Tennessee hug the basement floor.

      Your hatred of all things gator and orange has inspired me. Gatorade is now banned from my house, which my athlete-daughter might take issue with. The hard part will be telling her the cat has to go, too. He’s orange.

        Drink a “body armor”. They’re delicious. Powerade doesn’t tast good unless you’re really hot and its really cold.

        It’s been a few years now, but last I checked, Gatorade still pays royalties to the UF athletic department. #FTMF

          Can’t agree with this enough. Body Armor is the only sports drink that I’ve had in a long time. Much healthier than Gatorade. And you can tell when you drink it. After you drink Gatorade you’re actually thirstier. Not with Body Armor. And it tastes really good too.

    • No we don’t. This is a huge unending myth. Florida can suck ass for ten years and a) I’ll love it and b) it’s not going to effect us and our “rankings”. Weak schedules don’t slow our competition down a bit.

    1) No, they don’t.
    2) It warms my Dawg heart to know that it is gator fans who are now in the “this is our year” mindset.

    Those insufferable assholes never change. First night of vacation I put up with their sophomoric slurs because we ate at a nice restaurant. Saturday morning I shut that shit down in a manner that would’ve made Gunny Hartman proud. It was easy because the facts are on our side. I’d like to thank Senator Blutarsky here at GTP and you members for providing the knowledge used for ammo in blasting their ears. It’s been a long time coming.

    Why does this have to be their year? Based on what? I don’t see a team uniquely brimming with potential down there. Can you imagine how they will react if they were to finish 3rd in the East?

      I take it to mean this is probably the last chance they’ll have for a while, so they better win now. Not they will, or that it will be easy. Just not as impossible as next year and the year after and so on.

      The remark was that this would be their best chance for several years, the principal reason being that 2020 will be their asshole year measured against the previous two and the next three years. This being their best chance year doesn’t mean it’s a compliment, rather the statement should be viewed in the context of the famous Dumb and Dumber quote. Next year it will be a 1 in 2M chance.

    Am I missing something? The Gators have players leaving left and right. This isn’t a case like Bama when Saban took over and ran off the non-contributors. The players who are leaving include present and future team stars. It’s still a Jimmies and Joes game and FU doesn’t have the players.

      The guy in that article says he doesn’t see any major holes in this gator team? His offense line is pretty much gone and he is breaking in 4 new starters who have not exactly set the world on fire. This is a line of scrimmage league. We play a ton of bump coverage. Big physical corners. Franks needs time and I have doubts about how much he is going to get playing the schedule they are playing. They have had an offseason that would make any fan cringe and their recruiting is pedestrian at best, especially on the O-Line. Their D is very good but also very thin. They keep the transfer portal in business. I think they still have a substantial culture problem. It’s a great time to hate the gators.

    ‘We’re not going anywhere.’” I should certainly hope not. Think of all the fun you would deprive us of as we watch you contort yourselves into knots. Who else would be nearly as much fun to stomp on in Jax? Food would not be as flavorful without Salty Gator Tears seasoning. For our sake. STAY.

    Meanwhile, I remain thankful for the Empty Suit they have for a coach running his mouth which insures our team will be focused on doing their talking on OUR neutral field. Let their fans start talking about moving the game from JAX because UGA owns them in that stadium and recruit from that area choose UGA anyway.

    I hope that we get up big on every opponent this year, and Kirby’s calls the dogs off . Mabey he’s got the mindset to save some touchdowns for UF. He’s planning to try to put 60on those motherfuckers and I hope he does it.
