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.
