heh, heh. Just a bit of good news.
1 epic visit against ND
1 Bama blowout with a lame atmosphere
1 Florida struggle vs Vandy
Don't think Florida has much of a chance to make up ground.
"Gators not exactly putting together a Gameday atmosphere to impress Da'Shawn Hand, what a mess so far"
One never knows how much that sun, warmth and access to "hostesses" can change a young man's mind.
Just thank God he's not in Tuscaloosa today.
Given how poorly they are playing today, I would be surprised if they can get to six wins.
Next week they go to South Carolina, then a chump win, then FSU. They would have to beat either SC or FSU and I don't see either of those scenerios happening.
....me some hostesses... 'specially hostesses twinkies!
The swamp is nothing special as far as buildings go. It was pretty dirty. That said, the atmosphere was as good as any stadium I've been to.
Da'Shawn is probably diggin the vibes
Their defense is way, way too good to allow that many points to pretty much any team, let alone Vandy, to say otherwise. Shame, I think Muschamp is a good coach. But when players give up on the program...
OSU will need a big time coordinator and Muschamp is looking like he will be available.
I agree that Florida wasn't a real player anyhow, but if you're going to offer their struggle against Vandy as a reason he won't be impressed, it's fortunate he wasn't at the Akron, UConn, or MSU games.
Already not capacity Florida stadium emptying out at the start of the 4th Q.
Nice that Hand can see that S-E-C football isn't always enormously hyped games with crazy environment.
Muschamp is gonna get himself fired.
the only thing is what Da'shawn thinks about the visit and how he can fit in there because he did tweet that he was "feeling like gator right now" earlier today. So if he likes the weather and can see himself fitting in there who knows it may stick in his head for his decision on thursday.
Oh come on, Florida is amazing! They have Tim Tebow, Urban Meyer, Greg Mattison, oh... wait, this is 2013. Nevermind.
The thing about Florida that I think a lot of people not from around there don't realize is that they think they're Michigan. They think they're a college football blue blood and a public ivy. I actually knew students there who told me that the university was equal to Michigan and to be considered by the Ivy League when they tried to expand south (LOL). So I don't know why you'd rather go there if both teams are down. Sure it's warmer, but it's in a swamp.
Oh and the Swamp sucks. It's blazing hot/muggy and the atmosphere really isn't that great.
Weather wasn't that great. Pretty hot throughout the game.
Glad he isn't watching the Michigan game today
Well, actually I have no idea how he enjoyed it. But after 5 football seasons in Gainesville, this was my first game. So if he saw what I saw, Florida dropped flat out.
This was a game that should have been a 34-10 score (luckily at 34-17 on a lucky pass reflected off the foot of the DB that blocked it). I especially liked how the crowd was yelling at the field throughout the game, worse after halftime. Begging for Muschamp to be fired. Defense was horrible, offense was actually not as bad as it seemed (offensive line was slightly worse than ours). Horrible penalties on both sides of the ball. The only bright side to this for Hand would be offering him IMMEDIATE playing time.
Maybe it was that the stadium was only about 90% full. Maybe it was how teh crowd started leaving at the end of the 3rd quarter. Maybe it was how the stadium was about 50% full with 10 minutes left in the game. And for a homecoming game, the atmosphere was terrible. Should be much more of a Michigan vs Bama battle. I don't see how any of the recruits could have enjoyed that game.
And for all those complaining about ticket prices at Michigan, suffer through it. Prices may be cheaper at the advertising schools, but the commercials, the crap on the billboards and during breaks. The players (surprisingly UF only) kept watching the commercials and had no focus at all.
But I thoroughly enjoyed the game.
