It all depends on what you're asking for.
Orange and Blue is always a great color scheme!
Black and Yellow is great as long as you're not talking college football.

Coahces will just send kids vines with coaching points and film break downs. The GA coaches in charge of video breakdown just got a TON more work...
|16 weeks 2 days ago||Florida Gator Experience||
I went to plenty of Gator games at the Swamp while I was a student at UF during the Leak/Tebow years. People are parked anywhere they can find a spot: streets, lawns, parking lots, you name it. The only lighting is whatever people have chosen to make available or the streetlights if there are any. Very few people are actually parked in the school lots and those people probably paid TOP dollar. We played Vanderbilt at night (lets not talk about how Cutler took that game to OT).

Being a Gator alum living in Iowa and raised in MIchigan, I do agree that I'd rather not move back to Florida. But Gainesville and Melbourne are two of the few areas I'd actually consider moving back to.

The in-laws and all the aunts and uncles are at my house. I'm at work. Its much quieter here.

I graduated from the SEC and spent a lot of time around "S! E! C!"... as much as I detest Michigan State, please, please, beat Alabama so I can stop hearing that chant. (then they can promptly lose in the title game)

Cheers to that!

The biggest reason the Gators won't necessarily be driving up the tickets is our late season depression... losing like we did to FSU and Alabama has certainly taken some of the luster off a season that FAR exceeded expectations. But since Orlando is only a short two hour drive from Gainesville, there'll still be plenty of Gators doing all they can to get tickets.

Spurrier proved that South Carolina has a chance to do well in the division. They'll always probably be rather cyclical, but its the best they can probbly hope for. Now if only my Gators can actually keep a good QB on the field, they're poised to be a force in the East.

He did get us to click on this. And I even commented-- which is an extreme rarity. Maybe I'm just a sucker for satire and comedy.

When I was attending UF during the Leak/Tebow years we'd do this chant after every home win. Listening to it reverberate through Ben Hill Griffin Stadium was pretty darn impressive.
|1 year 27 weeks ago||Early enough...||
Its early enough the kid can at least go looking around for another school. Its much better than having the kid move into a dorm room and then pulling his scholarship. Great? Certainly not, but this young man has a chance to decide his future before its too late. I'd rather have that than he has to try and sort things out after he signed his LOI or showed up on campus.

31-30 Michigan. Way too close for comfort, but Funchess in the endzone in the waning minutes.
|2 years 9 weeks ago||Respect||
So the head coach wants the students to be respectful, look presentable in public, maintain a living area that is both presentable and safe, as well as wanting his athletes to be respectful to women. At least that's my takeaway from the list. And as much as we might think it seems odd to write it down, its a whole lot easier to enforce if you write it down and hand it to the kid. Plus, when they're being recruited, they know about these rules and they have the choice to attend the school or not.

This is the difference between teh Big Ten and the SEC.
It was the strangest thing to get used to while going to school in the SEC watching them root for their rivals. I couldn't do it.

I've been here a long time, but don't speak often since, like this post, I don't have much to say that adds value, but I'll say this: I'm with you completely Brian.

|3 years 8 weeks ago||Having graduated from Florida||
Having graduated from Florida during the Tebow and oah championship runs, i can tell you that Gainesville is a heck of a place to party when the Gators win. Other than making decent size trees march down the road, there is no burning of anything. I can only imagine last night they were drinking their sorrows away. At least last nights game meant one of my teams made the final four!

After having grown up in Grand Haven and then moving to Florida (explain my name at all?) I have to say, while Florida beaches are great and a ton of fun, I'd gladly take Grand Haven's beach... fresh water and great small towns that when I was there weren't overrun with tourists (unless it was Coast Guard Festival, but then you just went to the beach in Ferrysburg).
|4 years 5 weeks ago||Disappointing||
As a Gator alum with a BSBA in CIS and an MS in CS, losing the department would be crazy. In my time there the courses leaned VERY heavily toward foreign students. And foreign students brought in a lot of money. I hope they reverse course because CS is a field not going away anytime soon. Why don't they kill off classes like "Age of Dinosaurs" or the stereotypical rocks for jocks first?

|5 years 7 weeks ago||Historical Basis||
As a Christian myself, I get tired of many of these "prohibitions are bullshit" arguments.
Many of the religious prohibitions are historical artifacts created to keep the ancient people safe. If all religious prohibitions are "bullshit" then what are the Ten Commandments? If you ask me, its simple: don't steal... many cultures stealing meant getting your hand cut off; don't commit murder... Hammurabi's Code said an Avenger would be sent to kill you; don't commit adultery... ancient form of protection against STD's (one virgin + one virgin = greatly decreased risk of STD spread).
Other uses of religious prohibitions such as Catholics can't eat meat on Fridays or Mormons can't drink caffeine are the same as the Christian Lent 40 days of fasting. Its meant as a sacrifice so that every time you are tempted to eat a nice greasy burger on Friday or grab that morning cup of coffee you think about it, say a prayer to your preferred deity and therefore use it to live your life to better glorify your God.
If you disagree with me, that's fine, we're all entitled to our opinions on religion and I'm not here to convert you. I'm just asking everyone keep an open mind to other people's view, stop the name calling (and, in the bigger picture, the religious motivated violence) and get back to the point of this blog: football.

To tag on with what Tom was saying about languages and from a guy who did web programming, make sure to learn more than one language. C++ and Java are the current standards and if you know the basics of them you'll be able to cross back and forth easily enough. (I'd personally recommend C++ as its the harder one to pick up with pointers) Combined with your business degree, COBOL would be a fair second language to learn the basics of because of its use before C++ and Java became popular.

There are places in the world where they have had to install chain link fencing around the field and in the seating areas to keep fans separated and away from the players. Yes, some soccer fans do get that crazy in other places in the world.
|6 years 5 weeks ago||Batty Proposal||
We'll see how batty this is, but here goes...
With 16 teams, we know that a team will only realistically be able to play half the conference any year if they want to schedule any non-conference games. We also have to try and take into account traditional rivalries.
Everyone hates the NFL, but what if they maybe have something slightly right? Below are four four team divisions.
Again, this is hopefully preserving traditional rivalries, making sure you don't go too long without playing any one team and it also makes it so your schedule would be set before the start of the season so there'd be no logistical issues to work out midseason with scrambling up who plays who and where.
The conference winner would be the division winner with the best conference record with tiebreakers being head to head, record vs common opponents, division record and then point differential.
