Out manned last night.  Congrats to Wisc for sticking to their game plan.  It worked.  
Ditto on the ST coach - although I thought Tress handled that.  Also VERY questionable call on being down 21 and kicking field goal while inside the three.

if i am john brantley, i have 3 ideas in mind.  transfer to a D2 school for my senior year.  graduate and transfer to another D1 program that has a masters program UF doesnt (is that possible, maybe the circus program at fsu?), or send my papers in to the NFL.  going undrafted is a better option than returning to UF to run the option.

i have never seen a program screw over a kid so bad.  why did UF even recruit a passing QB?

i also gotta agree with biggs, UF "has" to have deep threats.  they just arent being utilized, just like brantleys arm.

I don't think I have ever seen a QB so mis-used as Brantley. He is a pure 3-step/5-step drop back QB with great football IQ, good accuracy and decent arm strength. But he is NOT a runner. If he were at SCar, there'd be Heisman talk. Spurrier would have him netting 400+ yards/game.

As to why UF recruited him? He was one of the easiest recruits Meyer netted. John Sr.(actually John III, he is John Brantley IV) and Scott did all the work. he wanted to go to Texas or Bama, but his family talked him into keeping the Florida family tradition alive (His dad was UF's QB in the mid 70s, his grandfather played in the 50s, and his uncle Scot, punched Duemig)

yeah, it looks like there were some good burners rotting on the bench who finally got some PT last night. Donte Thompson needs to benched for life, he makes Clayton look like an all-star. Start Hines or Hammond with Moore as the slot.

MSU was 4/9 for 33yrds passing AND WON. That is embarrassing.

Looks like the Ducks might take #1 now.


Im excited but I also know most Pac-10 teams lose a game.  I also see the big picture and being an Oregon fan through some rough years... going back to the Rose Bowl and just winning it would be an amazing season as well. Its nice and its exciting but Im scared Oct 30 vs USC something doesnt smell right about that game.

I'd rather see Oregon over Oklahoma; how in the WORLD did that happen????

Boise State doesn't stand a chance of making the big game now.  They are making a case for more 1 loss teams by moving Oklahoma so far up.....insane.

Oregon has the 50th ranked SOS right now, while Oklahoma is ranked 15th.  That's the difference right now.

But "perception" of the PAC 10 isn't the problem since Stanford (13th), Oregon State (1st), and Arizona State (6th)  have higher SOS's than Oklahoma does.  Seriously, ease up on the inferiority complex.

Gators are falling apart. Offense is horrible, and the D is having trouble stopping the run. Meyer needs to take over play-calling until the ship is righted.  And they need to get Brantley under center, for crying out loud.


You are aware that Meyer never has called plays?  It was Mullins and now Addazio. Even at his previous stops.

I know Oregons SOS is why thankfully the worst team left is UCLA this week who beat Texas. No team that has been voted 1 or 2 in the coaches and media poll at the end have been shafted. But its mute because I think Oregon lays an egg. Pac-10 teams almost every year have the highest SOS... nothing new.

So then where does this "perception" stuff come from?  Oregon is ranked #1 in all of the human polls, as they should be.  Perception isn't the problem, their weak SOS thus far is.  Computers don't have any perception one way or the other.

Ummm, no they don't.  Last year the SEC's average SOS was 15.4 and the PAC 10's was 21.4.  They are up there, but not the highest.

Gators fans...

Whats with Dominque Easley? I heard last month he was about to bolt, now I read gain hes hating it at Florida and about ready to bolt to Oregon. Also read Chris Martin is about to bolt as well.

I guess both wouldnt surprise me since Easley was a Duck until the million gators at the Under Armour game was all over him and told Meyer to offer him, and Martin as I recall was leaning towards Cal as well.

and in other news, FlaState squeaked out an uninspired win at home against BC.

Aside from the thrashing from Oklahoma the defense is unrecognizeable.  Stoops is a freaking genious for resurrecting the defense from the ashes of embarassment to how they are performing now.  I just wish someone would come forward and tell us what happened to the real Christian Ponder since his injury last season because he is clearly not the same guy.

I'm not sure.  I'm sick of reading about recruits leaving because of the offense's struggles.

It sucks when facts are brought to the table instead of made up stuff because of an inferiority complex.



HUH??

OBF was asking a question of Gator fans regarding two disgruntled players.

Probably comes from this article:

Hours after senior Mike Pouncey told the media the freshman class needs to “just shut their mouth and come play,” Ronald Powell and Dominique Easley didn’t come to play at all.

According to a source close to the team, the two freshmen were upset with the way the coaches came down on them during special teams practice Monday and didn’t show up for Tuesday’s practice, as a result.

According to the source, both players threatened to transfer, but nothing has come of that so far.

Powell, a five-star defensive end and the No. 1 recruit in the nation according to Rivals.com, and Easley, a five-star defensive tackle, are part of a freshman class that has drawn some criticism from some of the veteran players, such as Pouncey who said the entire freshman class is **CENSORED**y.

Coach Urban Meyer told the media Monday that he is concerned with the freshmen’s attitude.

“You have 25 young players -- or whatever it is -- that think they’re going to dominate the way they did in high school, and they have no idea what’s about to hit them,” Meyer said.

Easley compared himself, Powell and fellow freshman defensive lineman Sharrif Floyd to the Miami Heat’s free-agent haul.

“Ronald Powell is Chris Bosh, Sharrif (Floyd) is Dwyane Wade and I’m LeBron (James),” Easley said at UF’s Media Day.

Quarterback John Brantley was the only member of the team to address the media Wednesday. He said he didn’t know if Powell and Easley missed practice Tuesday, but said the veterans and freshmen are getting along.

“We’ve been mixing in with them fine,” Brantley said. “They came in here, they’re trying to make an impact, and you can’t really ask for anything more.”


losing creates frustration. The D is down a notch since Strong left and the O is...well...ah...dried equine feces.
