Throw, Marco!

(With apologies to Munson for taking liberties…)

“Florida in a stand-up four, they may or may not blitz, they won’t. Max back. Third down on the 25. In trouble… Complete to the 29, to the 30. Marco Wilson 32, 34. Marco Wilson 36, 38, 39, 40. Throw, Marco! Five, 10, 12, 14, 15. Marco Wilson!  Marco Wilson!  Marco Wilson! … Well, I can’t believe it. 20 yards and Marco really got in a heave there, I broke my chair, I came right through a chair, a metal STEEL chair with about a five inch cushion … Do you know what is gonna happen in Gainesville tonight? And up at Ponte Vedra and Sandestin and all those places where all those Daily Gator people have got those condominiums for four days? MAN, is there gonna be some property destroyed tonight! 37 to 34, Tigers on top! They were gone. I gave up, you did too. They were out of it and gone. Miracle!”

This offseason is gonna be more enjoyable than we thought.

    This was the best, I say, BEST play of 2020. So far.

    This is crazy, but I have this really strong urge to see Alabama wipe the floor with the Gators. How many points can they put on that Grantham d? Hoping for 60.

    That has to be the single greatest call in college football history. 20 yards?? So precise!

    Mullens is classless for not pulling that player out after he did that. Isn’t it pretty standard for coaches to pull a player for a play or two after he commits a foul? And the way UF players assault opposing QB’s is classless.

    If you watched Mullens press conference – he was his befuddled goofy self.

  10. Depending on who UF gets in a bowl, and who opts out prior to said bowl, Mullen’s new “best ever season” as head coach could end with a 3 game losing streak and four total losses.

    On the bright side in Gainesville, the Gators are still a shoe-in for the SECCG.

    Being an old fart, I went to bed early. When I woke up and checked the score, I was happy fu lost. When I got to work and actually saw how the water lizards screwed themselves I laughed. This is the defensive equivalent of Reggie Balling or whoever that Syracuse QB was this season. It couldn’t happen to a shittier program and fan base. You love to see it.

    George Pickens’s water squirt was leading for ‘bonehead move of the year’ but Marco now has the award locked up.

      I still think Pickens’ water squirt was a little funny, and it didn’t really hurt us. But I also hope it’s the last time we see things like that from him.

      Gators can continue their shoe throwing for as long as they want.

      Oh, and my wife and I thought of this immediately after hearing about it:

        Before LSU even kicked the field goal, I told my girlfriend that the Austin Powers shoe gif was about blow up on the web. Sure enough, it showed up in a Junkyad thread almost immediately.

    The ‘turds are a reflection of their coach, Sideshow Dan the Clown.

    And to think, everything had to go wrong for them to beat us this season. We had to have our three most important defenders injured and/or not play in the game, George Pickens hurt, and Kirby make the wrong QB starting decision.

    If those injuries don’t happen and Daniels plays, we win the game, pure and simple.

    It’s like Cousin Eddie went to the Crossroads to sell his soul, and yes, they beat us and will go to Atlanta, but they’re going to get their asses beat in Atlanta as bad as Shark Humper’s teams did, they’re gonna get knocked out of the NY6 now because of this LSU loss where they’re play a good Iowa team in the Citrus and they’re likely to finish the season with 4 losses ranked way below us in the final poll.

    All because Sideshow Dan got that blind squirrel win against us he sold his soul to get.

    We need to also thank Mullen for calling the time out to allow LSU to take their time and set up for the longest field goal in school history. Prior Mullen’s timeout there was lots of confusion on the LSU kicking team.

    This is the funniest thing I’ve ever seen happen on a football field. The sheer stupidity of the act itself, coupled with its weirdness, its pointlessness, its disastrous consequence, the fact that it happened to UF, the reactions of #3’s teammates immediately after he throws the shoe, the ref’s specificity (not 18, not 19, but “20 yards downfield”)…. Oh, God.

    Comment from Alligator Army: “Tensions were rising in Europe, and there had already been two crises in the Balkans and two Crises in Morocco

    Nonetheless, Gavrillo Principe is painted as the guy who started World War I, and that was probably responsible for World War II and the Cold War that followed. Is it fair that he take the blame for all that? Probably not, but he still knew better than to throw a receiver’s f’ing shoe.

    Is “Threw the shoe” the new equivalent of “Jumped the shark”?

    I’m sure Marco feels like a real heel after that penalty. It was “sole” crushing for the team and Mullen had to be fit to be tied. Wilson probably got a good tongue lashing and you know there will be no loafers in practice this week. The Dawgs have represented the East these last few years so Dan and his boys will have some big shoes to fill in Atlanta when they go toe to toe with Bama.

    In a way I feel bad making jokes about them. After all we know what it’s like for the shoe to be on the other foot.

    If Mullen was a female I’d send him a can of feminine hygiene spray that was 50% glue.
