Something to look forward to

This could be fun ($$).

Next year’s schedule looks tougher, so what is the realistic expectation for Gators football: on-field improvements or a better record? — Lester L.

The Gators figure to be underdogs against seven opponents next fall — Utah, Tennessee, Kentucky, South Carolina, Georgia, LSU and Florida State — and I consider games against Arkansas and Mizzou as toss-ups. That’s a bleak outlook for a program that hasn’t endured three consecutive losing seasons since 1945-47[Emphasis added.]

Of course, since Florida’s fan base doesn’t believe the Gators started playing football until 1990, that particular three-peat would make for the program’s first time ever.

    Would be pretty epic if UGA could pull off a three peat at the same time UF has three straight losing seasons.

  3. I love this new reality where in the preseason, FU fans consider themselves underdogs to Kentucky and S. Carolina.

      At Williams Brice now looks like an unwinnable game for them

      • It’s crazy…also, FU had like a 31 year win streak vs UK…but not in the last couple of years 🧐

        FU is a shell of their glory days…and I’m loving it

          It’s not rocket science either. UF enjoyed a run when they had superior talent to those teams. They don’t anymore, and the on-field results support it. Their new normal is rock fighting with mid-tier SEC programs and hoping to be .500 against them.

    I took note of their proficiency in punting and kicking off in the comments. Reps matter.

    Hate to relish in the failure of others, but can make an exception for Florida

    If it makes them feel any better (and I hope it doesn’t), they have as many losing season since 1990 as we do….

      I would have thought that they have more. We had our last one in 2010 and they have had what 3-4 since then?

        Siskey, when I met you at the end of ‘97 or beginning of ‘98 I was in a good mood as that was the first time the Dawgs had beat the gators since ‘89. I figured the Dawgs had turned the corner and Donnan had them on the right path.
        Then I met Quincy Carter and Drew Cronic next door smoking that chronic and I knew that Mark Richt had lost control 3 years before he became HC. It was another 20 years before Smart tightened that shit up.
        Where the fuck did 25 years go? Tell me what you been doing, please?

    Florida being in roughly pick’em territory with the rest of the middle of the conference is beautiful. They’d have to win every 50-50 game and pull an upset just to get to 8-4. And based on what I saw in year one, 5-7 seems a lot more likely.

      Should FU never win another football event in 100 years will never cure my Bulldog soul, until, UGA footbaal goes into hogtown , throws 50 plus on that fucking scoreboard, takes the prom queen and leaves that shit hole in burning pile of DAWG squeeze…#FTMF

    I don’t often literally lol, but that last line made me.

    2023 is going to be brutal for them. No way Napier survives, even if it’s not his fault.

    What a shame.
