Your Daily Gator indulges in gallows humor.

My man, this is first rate.

I dunno about you, but I’m kinda digging “The Portal Master” as the official nickname for Mullen here at the blog.

    Hey, Zach Evans is still out there. Go get him Portal Master.

    Sounds like a really bad 1980’s sci-fi b-movie directed by Roger Corman.

    Sideshow Dan the Clown is… THE PORTAL MASTER!!!

      Mullen reminds me more of The Pretender on the TV show where he pretends to be a head football coach

        I loved that show!!! Such an underrated, fun show to watch. The raven-haired chick in it was smoking hot, too, so that always helps.

        You know, the best thing that’s happened in the last 10 years or so of TV is that networks are now allowing shows to film an actual series finale instead of just cancelling shows outright.

        The Pretender was cancelled after four seasons and ended on a cliff-hanger. They did some TNT movies to try to wrap up the story, but it wasn’t really the same.

      Buckaroo Banzai verses The Portal Master

    Reminds me of Ghostbusters

    Mullen’s coaching acumen: He can take his’n and lose and take your’ns and lose.

    That’s just embarrassing. Sounds like something a tech fan would say.

    That comment may have been made in jest, but I’m fine with calling Cousin Eddie the “portal master,” as he’s watched plenty of players walk through it. Too bad for him that so many of them were walking away from Gainesville.

    Gallows humor indeed.

    Somebody added this:

    “I know people are so dumb. Who cares that we had 29 slots and used only 22 on high school kids. We still got 4 more spots for da portal. Hopefully in a few years we get to the point we don’t have to recruit high school ranks at all, we can take a full 25 man class from the portal.”

    Lol. Did they really not sign anyone today?


    • JPMotion

      no, they actually signed a few as well as had a former 5-star WR transfer in from… penn state, i think it was. i mean, kirbs drank their milkshake all day, and #ftmf forever, but, they didn’t completely whiff here, either.


      • Biggus Rickus

        Meh. I’m skeptical of transfers who didn’t produce at their previous schools, regardless of their star rating.


        • JPMotion

          that’s totally fair. i was just trying to address the actual topic at hand, not comment on the viability of any given member of their team.


  11. DawgFaithful

    That’s a Lexicon entry if I ever saw one.


  12. Texas Dawg

    They can always point out that not a single recruit that they signed on the 2nd signing day of 2020 failed to produce.


  13. spur21

    Keep it up Coach Clown and pretty soon half your roster will be sitting – waiting to become eligible.


  14. BuffaloSpringfield

    Perhaps even a deeper insight to Cousin Eddie’s profile is Dungeon Master


  15. RC

    I love how they are touting the signing of 4 5-stars in this class, even though they have enough shame to add, parenthetically, that “some” are by transfer. Apparently “some” = 3/4.


    • Cojones

      My question would be why they got 3 5s through the portal. How many other 5s transferred to other schools. I’m suspicious and if I was the other teams, I’d ask if there was interference. What in hell is so attractive about the swamp/hogtown area such that a rejected 5* picks them out with regularity? Why would a 5* leave a team unless they were no longer wanted or don’t play because they can’t live up to their rating or are in trouble?
