Your Daily Gator is doin’ the time warp.

They’re bitching about the beat writers now at Swamp247, but this comment takes the cake:

Personally I will take a Florida 4 star over a Georgia 5 star any day.

If I had a dollar for every time I’ve heard a Georgia fan express the exact same sentiment about Florida, I could have retired years ago.  In the meantime…

    And that’s when you realize that the worm has turned.

    Man I love that.

    Toward the end of the Richt era after a UF alumn friend of mine told me he actually pulls for UGA when we’re not playing them, I told him “I want you to hate us as much as we hate you.” We’re clearly headed in that direction and that makes me happy.

    Great clip.

    Also- I read on a message board that Kirby recruits like Seinfeld…”Even Stephen”
    “She’ll be comin’ ’round the mountain…”

    I live a hour south of Hog Town and believe me the natives are back to drinking the Kool Aid. They are convinced Trask is the QB they have been waiting for a long time. Sports writers are feeding the beast, to give somebody hope against UGA. My only worry is the Alabama game, if we loose it we can’t afford another SC screw up or the Gators will back into the SEC East. I’ll be pulling for LSU like heck for sure.

    Maybe, if they embraced their writers more for putting out good vibes for them, there would be more positive articles….. . Maybe, if they questioned the palaver that Dan pours out that shows that Kirby is in his head……. . Maybe. if they…..nah…Fuck’em.

  10. I wasnt (contrary to believe) a Richt hater, but “3 stars with 5 star hearts” and 65 man rosters is when I started becoming unraveled I reckon.

    It’s not even past NSD or spring games and they’re already stressed about WLOCP.

    Damn that’s nice.

    Wasn’t Franks on the tip of their tongues last year? Now he is joining another SEC team after injury and FU’s “Forget him” doesn’t ring the ole loyalty key; instead, it sends a clear message to both Jones and Trask that they ar one injury from oblivion. Just imagine what Zeus’s return to us sends as a message to those who are hurt in HS and looking for a team that wants a ’21 Qb.

    The extra-baggage 5* player we sent them will split them up the middle before Sept 1. The other part of that bargain will show itself like an all-white bulldog shedding spots

    The funny thing about the UF fanbase right now is how they simultaneously believe that 1) the gap in recruiting doesn’t mean anything and 2) Mullen is by far the better coach and would beat Kirby if it wasn’t for the difference in talent.

    Both of those things can’t be true given Mullen’s record since being head coach for a decade now.

    That’s cool. We’ll take a Florida 5 star over a Florida 4 star any day, too.

    “They are scared because they know Dan is all in Kirbys head. Their window closed and they know we have passed them.”

    LOL…WTF?!

    • Please remind me we weren’t this delusional in the 90s. If being in Kirby’s head means he’s focused on beating their collective @$$3$ 364 days a year (we’ll give Kirby Christmas Day off), Dopey can live rent free in Kirby’s head as long as he likes.

      Yeah, that stood out to me too. That’s some kind of faith they have in Mullen, isn’t it? If they want to turn their program into Miss State, who am I to care?

    Does FU have 15-20 players I don’t know about? I watched the most dreadful offense in recent Georgia memory combine with a great defense to handle FU for 3 1/2 qtrs. And that was with a better skill group and defensive line. Like I said, what am I missing? Where are the players that have caused FU to pass UGA?

    Kirby vs Mullen as head coaches: Kirby: 3-0 / Mullen 0-3 ’nuff said

  17. I see a fan base now trying to convince themselves of things. At the same time, I also see media going on about them- predictions of winning the east and even being 8-10 places ahead of us in preseason polls. Sure, we lost quite a bit but so did they and Mullen hasn’t recruited nearly as well as Kirby has. I guess they’re trying to create a narrative for the off-season but it’s just not really backed up by reality.

    Florida fans complaining about Georgia media being in the tank for the Bulldogs than any of that shit Alanis Morrissette was singing about.

    Oh, and this…

    They are scared because they know Dan is all in Kirbys head. Their window closed and they know we have passed them.

    …is the kind of delusion I thought I’d never see outside of a doomsday cult.

    They sound just like they did back in Dooley’s day. Pretty soon, they will be on double naught spy probation right regular, like they were back then too. I’ll never forget how Charlie Pell was going to be their savior.
