Yes, it's time for a gator thread. I'd like to have a great discussion regarding the gators this season. I myself went to the game this week and will be at the tennessee game for week 3. Tebow looked good along with the offense this week.....and yes western kentucky stinks, but them gators are gonna do just fine this year boys!!!.......GO GATORS!!!!!!
The LORD is my rock, my fortress, and my savior; my God is my rock, in whom I find protection. He is my shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety.-Psalm 18:2
Gators are my team babayyyy!!! Lets hope they rock it this year!
You can't draw many conclusions from WKU. Sorry.
We'll see about Tebow in pressure situations with a real pass rush coming at him and a good secondary.
I don't think Tennessee matches up well. They did surprise me at the Swamp in 2001 thought. So - I wouldn't count the Vols out.
LSU presents a major challenge. Game is at Baton Rouge. They will probably have their early season loss out of the way. So - Boobie Miles can turn the horses loose.
Not sure what the Noles hold for the Thanksgiving game. We'll see on Monday night.
All in all - I think you guys lost way too much on defense to contend for a national title.
And Teebow will go through a learning curve. The jump pass and the runs last year don't prepare you to be an every down QB.
Finally - can not wait for 9/6/08. I'll be at the Swamp for Miami - Florida.
(Mom works for some grad office at UF and my brother has a part time job on campus. I told him I'd disown him if he starts rooting for the Gates. He still has a small U on his bumper.)

I've hated the Gators back when we were winning national titles and you guys were just playing for the SEC East.
Mainly because I'm of the opinion all 3 FLA schools should play each other every year.
That's only happened (in the regular season) twice since 1987 (2002/2003).
I respect the Noles though. They've at least played us every year.
When you look at the results from Miami-FLA - we played every year since the 30's until '87. Just retarded.
There is really no other reason to hate the Gators. You guys haven't beaten us since 1985.
I agree with you that the florida schools should play each other every year. I myself can't stand miami because i personally think they are a bunch of thugs. Even though i can't stand them, i still respect fsu and miami.
You would have to agree though that florida agrueably had the hardest schedule in college football last year and still went the distance.
I think in 2008 you guys are going to have your hands full in gainesville, and i honestly expect the gators to be very fine tuned by then and lay a whoopin on miami .....but we shall see.
I picked you guys to beat the Bucks and win the title. I won't deny that the Gates put on a show last year.
As far as thugs go - I'd suggest you hang around your pious Gator players before throwing stones.
I lived in the athletic dorm at an SEC school (not FLA) long enough to know football players at top 25 teams aren't Wally Cleaver.
Typically, 4.0 gpa guys can't read a cover 2 defense.
As far as '08 goes - we'll see. You guys will be the favorite - no doubt.
Not sure Meyer will still be around. I expect him to go to the NFL at some point in the next 3 to 4 years.
I haven't seen Gators52 on AM in a while. Not sure he's even around.
Are there any other Gator fans even left?? I remember them coming out of the wood work last year.
Well - then you aren't much of a fan, now are you Crow!!
lol I just never understood the whole rah rah thing with paying good money for a shirt with someone elses name on it etc. I spend so freaking much money on triathlon stuff I got save up somewhere
I am a big fan of Tiger Woods, Mark Allen(triathlons), Agassi (tennis) and on and on, if I included all that info in my sig how could I pimp my sups lol

There are definately moron fans all around, but my own personal experience with miami fans hasn't been good.
I'm actually really looking forward to miami/florida next year it's going to be a good game. This year i can't wait till the 15th when we play tennessee......imho their fans are the biggest a$$holes....my wife had a grown man(tennessee fan) spit at her during a game when she attended UF.
So when we whoop tennesse's @ss again it will be nice to be at the game.....i'm just glad it won't be a 12:30 game again......talk about being miserably hot and humid in the swamp this past saturday.....
I hate those fans who won't volunteer their secret allegiances, don't you, jmh?
I secretly hate Auburn, because they had the weakest offense of any of the SEC teams I saw this weekend. Good D will win out in the B10 and P10, but everyone in the SEC can play good to great D, don't mean nutin'.
