The bloom has worn off the rose.

Your Daily Gator is washing his hands of Billy Napier before a block is thrown in real game anger.

You know, it’s gonna be a real shame if conference realignment gives these people fresh hope.

    I’ve never see a new coach lose a fan base before coaching a single game, but it couldn’t have happened at a more perfect place.

    “Because I’m not so sure we don’t look like hot crossed buns out there this season.”

    His double-negative aside, I’m trying to unpack what our salty handbagger is saying here. Are they going to be hot and delicious? Or warm, steamy ‘turds on the field? I’m just not familiar with hot crossed buns as a football descriptor.

      I’m confused as well. As the son of an English immigrant we would have tasty hot crossed buns around Christmas each year. Never thought of shitty football production while eating them.

      Ran in here for the same thing. Isn’t it hot cross buns??
      Is that a good thing? Some kind of double crossing route?

      I got a good laugh out of that sentence. As a former teacher that used to teach 5th graders how to play instruments “Hot Crossed Buns” was always the very first tune kids would learn to play. It’s only 3 notes and teaches how to read, count, and produce rhythm.

      I suppose the poster could be expecting pretty elementary football things happening on the field?

        That cracked me up this morning, 92. My nephews are about the same age as my sons, and for a while my sister and I had a running competition about who could get who’s kids the noisiest, most annoying toys for Christmas. I started it with cap guns, she trumped those with a drum set, but I landed the haymaker with: The recorders.
        She called me Christmas morning and I could barely hear her over the two boys not “playing” the recorders, only seeing who could make the most obnoxious noise with them.
        Sis (cacophony in the background): “Socks and underwear! Socks and underwear! I give up!”
        Ex BiL: “Got I’m going to fucking kill you!”
        Me: “Hot Cross Buns, Sis.”

          If the competition continues may I suggest bagpipes?

          My sister got my twins hand bells for Christmas when they were three. It was like having two Mississippi State fans in the house for a couple of weeks. I finally had to hide the bells and swear vengeance on my sister. 😄

            You need to get those bells out of storage this fall. Get your twins some little elf suits and a red bucket and put them to work out in front of a Kroger or Walmart, and count the $$$.

    I had to go back to look and see what Kirby’s 2016 class was since it was his lowest class ever. We ended up ranked 6th in the country that year. Coincidentally, that’s where we are ranked now with less than half the recruits the ’16 class had. Pretty damn amazing.

    Florida on the other hand is currently ranked 42. That gap man. It’s not closing.

    The Great Summer ‘turd Freakout of 2022 has been my second favorite sports event of 2022, so far.

    Yesterday I came across an entire message board thread where they made up limericks for how much their recruiting sucks. It’s hilarious. Y’all should check it out, because some of them are quite funny and sad. It’s the sad that makes them truly funny for us. Hah. And #FTMF.

  9. With their comments about academics and the effect on recruiting, are the Handbags turning into the nerds of North Avenue?

    I’ve heard of the purple people eaters, the steel curtain, and a few other nicknames for defensive lines, but hot crossed buns is truly unique.

    The hot crossed buns defensive line. If that’s not a candidate for the lexicon I don’t know what possibly could be.

    I don’t see anything wrong with their recruiting just hope they continue floundering.

    There is nothing new about the spoiled Gators. They didn’t even play football prior to 1990. They had a great run but all good things come to an end. So suck it Gators. Miami is coming for you recruits, at least the ones we don’t want.

      “Blow the Admiral.”
      Without a doubt the funniest shit I ever heard the first time I heard it at Commodore Stadium. A real gut buster!!
