Your Daily Gator feels despair.

And I am all here for it.

Maybe for you, buddy.  I’ve got the feeling it’ll carry plenty of meaning for about forty thousand barking fans.

    Oh indeed. The storylines coming in to that weekend write themselves. Will Florida score? Will Mullen’s 4th loss send him packing before November? Is Mullen still the second best coach in the SEC? So many questions asked and answered.

      Their AD from MSU is used to 8-4 or 9-3 as being successful seasons. It must be true Corch Mullen said so.

      Is Mullen their Ray Goff? Waiting for Kirby to say, after a W in Jax, “all the experts say Florida develops players, and Georgia doesn’t develop anyone, and then we play, and we have guys like Jordan Davis and McConkey and Stetson and Dan Jackson, and we win. I don’t know how that happens.”

    9-3, maybe 10-2…”everyone’s ceiling in the SEC that isn’t named alabama or georgia.”

    I remember what that reality feels like. FTMF

      The cocktail-party will be meaningless for the first time since 2017…a quote from FU fan base, 2021 WLOCP just may be considered a home game for UGA football this year…do not want a change in the FU coaching staff, this season might bring some heat to the FU hc and their staff…#FTMF

    The big leap forward was that year they lost four games. LOL. FTMF

      Nothing would do my heart so good as seeing Darnell obliterate Brenton Cox to spring a big run. Throw the ball with under minutes left in the 4th while up 42. Usher in a new era of pants-shitting for the locals every time they have to cross that bridge and see the stadium on the horizon.

    Losing has cured him of his addiction. Looking forward to helping them stay on the wagon after WLOCP. We are gonna do the lord’s work.

    Maybe they will all sell their tickets to the cocktail party and we can have he entire stadium in red and black.

    I like the optimist in the thread: “Auburn beats Georgia then everything changes just that fast.” It’s just that simple.

      I love it. They still have LSU to play in BR but instead of watching they’ll be glued to their phones waiting, hoping for Auburn or Kentucky to do them a solid. And as those games come and go, they’ll have to sit in their stucco houses on Oct 23rd just knowing that we are resting up and rewatching last year’s film. They’ll wonder how long is too long to wait to offload their tickets. “Nah, man, can’t make it over this year. Wife wants to use the day to pick a new paint color for the kitchen. You know how it is.” Halloween decorations will still be in the yard and already they will be wondering how else they can use their November weekends. “Maybe,” they will think, “this isn’t so bad. Maybe I will spend more time with the kids now.” All the while, they shove the little blue and orange shirts and cheerleading outfits to the back of the closet. They take one last look at that toothy saurian visage and mutter to themselves, “FTMF.”

    Bless their hearts.
    Their delusion was slated to be crushed in the WLOCP, but Kentucky beat UGA to it.
    Not Alabama (the afterglow of the greatest loss on Earth, ever), not Georgia, not LSU, but Kentucky crushed their delusion and struck them with reality.
    It’s hard to claim a moral victory after a loss to Kentucky.
    But they’ve got the better half of a month to recover and polish their turd.
    The only question for Kirby is:
    “How bad must the beatdown be to keep them from declaring a moral victory?”

    What I don’t understand about Florida fans is why the LSU loss didn’t piss them off more. Were I, God forbid, a Florida fan, I would have been as livid about that game as I was the Georgia loss to Florida in 2014.

    Florida is now 3-5 in their last 8 games, including 1-5 vs. their last P5 opponents. Last year was the year where all the stars aligned for them, and yet they lost 4 games anyway. Of course, for some bizaare reason, Mullen continues to get love from the media, and was even awarded this at the end of last year:

    This is the year many of us pointed to Dan’s recruiting prowless, or lackthereof, would lead to his decline, so none of this is a surprise to most of us. I’m sure his defenders will continue to make excuses for him, including pointing out that he’s struggling due to a lack of talent (as if that is out of his control). Either way, IMO UF will be making a coaching change by the end of next year at the latest, possibly sooner.

    Maybe the Portal Master needs to be in a Dr. Pepper commercial.

    “Oooooh, look what the Portal Master is conjuring now! Wait for a it… wait for it…” (smoke and lights)

    (audience groans) “A loss to Kentucky?! Again?!”

    “Here, have a Dr. Pepper.”
    “I think I need something stronger.”

    This header from one of the threads on SWAMP 24/7 pretty much sums up where #FTMF program is (and I could not be happier)
    “Maybe Dan Mullen is the right guy and our expectations are off”

      Oh yeah, here is the post that goes with that header. Guaranteed to make any DAWG fan smile

      “Maybe UF is a 9-3 type program… and that’s ok. We do not have the will to win as an institution. We are a has been, like Nebraska, but the talent we have access to will allow us to never truly bottom out like them. We should all adjust our expectations downwards and be happy when we achieve a double digit win season and be grateful for what we have. Work life balance in the US is abysmal, kudos to Mullen for finding a job that allows him to take 8 weeks of vacation a year.
      God hasn’t smiled upon the Gators for a long time and we need to come to terms with that reality.”

    I say extend his contract again. Not many coaches get compared to Bill Belichick on the way to losing to Kentucky. I wonder if that announcer became aware of his own stupidity as the game ended. Probably not. Hard to be a critical thinker working for Disney.

  18. Late last week I posted a caffeine induced rant about not giving a flying flip what those jort wearing a-holes wrote, well GTP, I am a big enough dude to admit that I was wrong…since Saturday evening, while still sober enough to see straight, I have been riveted by Swamp Shit 24/7…their metaphorical suicide watch is a thing of beauty…who knew the gator tears and lamenting of misguided middle aged losers, with their Cheeto stained sausage fingers typing frantically, who knew that lift my soul to soaring new heights.

    When my beloved alma mater wins so convincingly and my most hated rival loses to UK…it’s a level of fan nirvana I don’t get to experience nearly enough.

    Scrolling down, The Caw’s comment, “This programs (sic) recruiting is such a joke al (sic) they care about us (sic) being a top university. Maybe just drop football altogether.”
    It was Mikey Adams’ wet dream for us to be “the UVA of the South”…my, how the turntables.

    “7 points”. Is that how close Mullen & UF is to Kentucky’s program? LMFHO

    To be fair, the cocktail party has been meaningless for them since 2012, they just didn’t realize it. An East championship doesn’t mean shit if you have no chance in Atlanta. They haven’t had one since Meyer left. They had one good (if hard to watch) Muschamp team in 2012. Aside from that, no team has been remotely close to good enough to do anything significant since their coach faked a heart attack so he could move to Ohio, of all places. I don’t care how good a job you have; Ohio is a truly awful place.

    Just wait. Mullen will eventually beat some unranked teams and cover the spread against a ranked opponent and all faith in Mullen will be restored.
