Life comes at you fast, Gators.

How it started.

Napier made it very clear that Florida’s strength is Richardson and the offensive line, and that the Gators would play to those strengths. Then they went out in their first showing and rushed for 282 yards.

They controlled the line of scrimmage and dictated tempo, and put Richardson in position to succeed. And Richardson merely played like a Heisman Trophy candidate, completing 71 percent of his passes for 168 yards, and rushing 11 times for 104 yards and 3 TDs.

He ran with the power and strength of Newton, and the effortless glide and speed of Young. He got tough yards like Tebow.

But here’s the difference: Richardson is a better pure thrower at this stage of his college career than any of those three.

How it’s going.

    Heard a stat today that AR15 has as many TACKLES than he has acounted for touchdowns (3 each). That is Heisman quality work there.

    So Gainesville, Tampa, and Honolulu. I guess being easily drivable to the beach makes you care a lot less about football.

    You’d think people would be embarrassed about their insane gushing over Richardson.

    They are like the Falcon’s AD at draft time. All they see are the measurables. Can he play? They haven’t considered that.

    Awww, the Gators got their hopes up like it was 2006. Now they’ve been let down. Again. Just wait until 29 Oct. The Dawgs are gonna rip their heart out and stomp that sucker flat.
    Fuck those motherfuckers.

    Technically the pick six against Kentucky was a touchdown pass….

    Just sayin’

  9. After Feleipe Franks, Emory Jones, and now AR15, I’d say the wheels have kind of fallen off Dan Mullen’s rep as a QB whisperer.

    Post-Corch, it’s incredible how much Florida has struggled to find a QB that can complete a forward pass. Except for Trask’s final year, which now looks like an extreme anomaly, Florida has truly become the antithesis of QBU.

    Oh how sad. Bluto please post a daily gator thread soon. I’d love to see how they’re reacting to this tragic meltdown. That first win set them up so nicely for this sudden collapse. Salty Gator tears are my favorite.

    Stetson wins a natty and there are QUESTIONS and CONCERNS, this dude completes more than 50% of his passes in like a 5-pass sample size and he’s the spawn of a Cam Newton/Joe Montana/Jesus threesome.

    That Matt Hayes post is 18 days old and it’s still covered in slobber.

    “A legitimate, honest to goodness, take your breath away quarterback.”

    “Check your guts at the door.”

    My favorite: Napier “barely has a pulse.” How bad a writer do you have to be to consider that a compliment?

    In conclusion, FTMF every second of every minute of every hour of every day until the sun burns the earth to a cinder.

    Hot garbage would be an upgrade over Anthony Richardson. His INTs are performance art pieces.

    Imagine AR15 and UF going up against Clemson and DJU. What a fun game that would be…

    Feels like AR15 is in his own head at this point, a bit like DJ U was last year after playing us. Couldn’t happen to a better bunch of MF’ers
