Our Charlie Brown-ish, err, Linus-y George Will . . . he never learns, does he?


Courtesy of a talented commenter over at the JustOneMinute blog who goes by the handle of "daddy," take a look at this my long-neglected-blogging-friends (presuming anyone finds their way over to this desolate spot any longer). It's a great riff...

Painting Florida Field


Time to gear up for another football season, another year of tremendous preseason hope spiced up a bit in 2015 with an almost entirely new coaching staff. I'm excited. I'm always excited at this time of the year. The Gators...

Is This the Greatest Gator Baseball Team Ever?


I think we have a truly special baseball team this year; our most special team ever. And I think the stats back that up. The end result may or may not tend to prove this thought but as we all...

UF Begins Construction of the New Indoor Practice Facility


Space is limited on this corner of campus, and this facility will only make things tighter. Situated between the soccer & track stadium, the baseball stadium, the basketball gym, and the old football practice fields, this new structure will require...

Jeb Can't Overcome His Obstacles


I'm a fan of Jeb Bush. He was an outstanding Governor for the State of Florida and I'm sure he'd make an outstanding President. But he has, unfortunately, the arc of history working against him and I'd like to think...

FSU Mess Serves as Vindication of Urban Meyer Era as Gator Head Football Coach


Some of you may remember the national beating Urban Meyer took during his tenure as Gator Head Coach when some lazy sportswriters clubbed him for running an out-of-control program full of thugs. It was an absolutely ridiculous assertion then and...

I Support Keeping Coach Will Muschamp


Go ahead, Jeremy Foley, give him his extension. I know you can't do that before the Carolina game but I have faith we'll close out the season in representative fashion -- even though we may suffer some more losses. I...

Florida-Georgia 2014 was Pure Gator Domination


After the weirdest Gator season in three decades, this first half plus of the 2014 season has been equally weird. But thanks to the hated Georgia Bulldogs, we can now put all of that behind us. The score was 38-20...

After Florida vs Bama, Is It Time for Treon the Transcendent?


As the season evolved, the first real hint of serious trouble occurred in the Kentucky game. I didn't write a column in the aftermath of that game. I got so bent out of shape at the first half ineptitude of...

The Eastern Michigan Blowout Victory


After the Gators finally played a football game in the 2014 season, I wrote a column for subscribers. The game may or may not turn out to be historic, but it was a very easy win for the Orange...

Opening Weekend Orange and Blue Frustration at the Sports Bar


[written September 5th, 2014] I think I speak for hundreds of thousands of Gator fans, if not millions, when I say opening weekend of the college football season was one colossal ball of complete frustration. One Gator Nation won’t soon...
