I'm with you. Just using correct grammar would be a start. When did texting become okay in everyday language and writing?

I think my favorite part of reading everything in this thread is the sheer amount of YOUNG talent we have all over... Look at the number of different names that have been mentioned in this thread! As long as the coaching staff can keep the egos in check (which is certainly what seems to be happening) there is going to be a TON of talent for a very long time. I like that we have the personnel to move players around and get many of them on the field at the same time.
The last few years have been great to watch, but I think we've all been waiting to get playmakers in EVERY skill position on the field. I feel like we're very close to seeing that day.
This is an EXCELLENT article. I agree wholeheartedly with your ideas being a start to get this conference back on track. I just wish someone would listen.
Look, we can dissect this team's identity all we want... I'm just glad we're dissecting a WIN on this lovely Monday... MUCH better than the gloom and doom posts I was reading last Monday, so thanks for that!
Have a great week all! NO MORE BAD NEWS this week is the goal!
In order to be a coordinator, he'd have to find a headset.
I really enjoy scUM fans being humbled by their own coach's inability to do... well... anything correctly.
Why is Jack White's (and the guy's behind him, for that matter) head so much larger than that guy in the bottom left??? That's creepy...
Wilson - 86
My only hope for tomorrow is that it's close enough that Hoke has to actually put the headphones on...
Whether you like FSU or not... That's a great way to present those helmets...
What a great write-up! Thanks for this... I don't see good stuff like this down here in Ess Eee See country...
Ditto to this. I don't remember a year when I was so UNSURE about the first game of the season. Granted, we usually open with an opponent at home, which helps, but also with one that is fairly "pedestrian." I will be in knots until the end of the first quarter tomorrow... Once I see them in action for the first time since the Orange Bowl, I'll feel better. I've also gotten so used to having Brax out there that this is the first time in ??? years that we know NOTHING of the starting QB... Should be FUN!
I'm certainly not a Broncos fan, but I like to keep track of our guys in the league.
42-28 Us Guys
I have nothing to add except: Thanks. A fantastic piece of writing... Is it game time yet???
This comment was, in no way, intended to insult blind people or their family members by including them in a conversation about UF "fans."
I'm sitting IN Gainesville right now, looking out at a street with Gator flags flying... People say we wear scarlet colored glasses... These people are just BLIND... It's AWFUL.
I think what's mentioned above: an almost "cultish" belief in a system and in each other, is going to go a long way. I think we saw some of this come out late in the season (i.e. against TTUN) but may not have seen it as much in the last two games. Adversity isn't something they dealt with well in the those last two games. I will be really interested to see how this shows up from our younger guys when it counts.
If I see EZE or Barrett in someones ear picking them up when something goes wrong, I will know now where that comes from. This TEAM may just show the entire world what the true meaning of TEAM is this year. Even if they drop a game or 2, how they respond the next week and next year could be absolutely astounding.
Nice work by UFM working to change a stereotypical culture into something real and tangible.
I live in Florida and, of course, all of the G fans are reveling in the injury. Classy, as usual...
However, I did have a conversation this morning with one of them and he complimented the tape he'd seen on Barrett. The point I brought up to him is that this isn't a situation (like in the NFL) where your backup quarterback is a journeyman who is just the best "other guy." This is a situation where, had Braxton left after last year, one of these guys was going to have the starting job anyway.
Is it ideal? Of course not. I'm not so jaded that I would ever say that. But, I'm looking forward to seeing where this all heads. I will continue to watch EVERY Saturday and see what this year and the VERY bright future holds. I'm looking forward to "meeting" the new team this year even more than any other year.
I don't know that I have the confidence of making the playoffs or even the B1G Championship game, but it's going to be one HELL of a ride.
But he's not an All-American?
There goes Watkins on the bubble screen.... Again. And Again...
Phenomenal post. I think you were dead on in everything. If the two questions come back next year, the sky is the limit.
Bosa is RIDICULOUS. Even FSU fans are impressed around these parts.
Love my Bucks. Time to reload.
Well, it was busted alright. Not sure that was the plan, but it was busted.
I don't have enough helmet stickers yet to upvote you, but I would do it in a heartbeat for this post.
Heartfelt and passionate... Similar to those speeches Woody used to give... :)
