    Also, I'm lazy on the computer. Much rather watch on my TV. And my TV is too old to be a smart TV. ;)

    That being said, I was really excited to watch Del Rio. He looked the part.

    Now our DTs need to beef up a bit. The middle of the oline was pushing them around on every short yardage situation (for both teams). So either our oline is massive strong (could also be good) or our Run Defense in the middle is going to struggle.

    Nice to see 2 Florida teams make it to the CWS. Maybe Florida & Miami will meet up during the tournament.

    If I'm not mistaken, the only way Florida and UM meet would be in the Finals! That would be really cool. May cause a few fights at work. But it would be fun

    Both our teams need to win their next games, or they'll be making the long flight back home to FL. :no:

    Sad but true. I did not watch your game. But the Gators just have not been hitting lately. The bats have gone cold... :(

    Not really surprising, but Luke Del Rio announced starting QB for the season.

    Yeah I'm pretty sure anyone that has followed the team this off-season knew that one.

    That being said, I am totally excited to see what he can do. I can't wait for Saturday!!!!!!! FB season is finally here!

    Pineiro looks good though. 49 yarder. I don't think it's worth pulling del rio at this point for appleby maybe we'll see him next weekend

    AP has us at #23 this week, I think it's low. Taking us out of the Top 25 after a win, then only to 23 after the dominate performance.

    Well I finally got to watch the USC game (I was camping over the weekend) last night. I have to say Appleby looked pretty darn good. Much better than I thought. Clean up a few fumbles, and that game is a blow out. It was pretty close to one anyway. I mean on USC's only scoring drive the refs were helping out big time. From a Defensive PI on us to the NON call on the offensive PI on their guy pulling our DB away so he can't catch the ball. Heck, it was even started by pulling the ball out to the 20 where I re-watched it many times still could not see anyone in the endzone on punt coverage.

    I will say I am very skeptical about the LSU game. But boy do I want to win it to shut them up. Plus, Coach Mac really needs a quality road win on his resume....

    Just found this thread. It is dead. Lets give it the paddles and get it back to life! I cannot wait for the Michigan game! I don;t know what one of the pickup of the Notre Dame kid. Hopefully we can finally see some good QB play. We had a little something going last year but then that QB got in trouble he was playing really well don;t remember his name though. I drink too much on Saturdays so I can pay attention on Sunday through at least halftime of the 1pm game lol.

    If we finally get decent QB play our team could really be good. I love our skill positions. Our oline should be more experienced and good. Our D should be fine... EVERYTHING hinges on QB play.

    I literally haven't gone outside of the Club level in months. Forgot the rest of the board existed lol. Hopefully we have something in Franks, We really have no experience at the QB position. We have a Ton of talent at our Offensive skill positions and if we get decent QB play we can put up some big numbers.

    Also i'm tempted to go to the Wolverines game, I happen to be in Gainesville that same weekend but the game would overlap with my other obligations. Maybe hit up the first half of the game, never been to a game there.

    Edit: I just realised the game is at Jerry's World and not in Gainesville... that's disappointing.

    Welcome to this sub forum,bro.

    This team ended up winning the SEC East championship two years in a row despite having poor QB play.

    Feleipe Franks is raw and probably will throw a few intercepts before he gets into rythm .
    He is 6ft 6 and has a hell of an arm.....not as good as newly recruited Corral.

    His problem is inaccuracy,reading defenses and starring down receivers.
    On the plus side the QB will not have to carry the offense this year.

    Gators have a much better OL and the RB game should be much better.

    BTW Zaire is 6 ft tall.

    What I like about Corral besides having the best arm in NCAA football ,is his poise and accuracy .

    He has a quick delivery although its a little quirky starting from his waist .If he shortens the delivery he will be Marino like .

    He is also Marino like in that he senses the pressure and sidesteps it.

    In addition he looks like a pro as he he quickly scans the field and goes through his progressions .Watching his highlights I did not see him starring down his receiver at all.

    Truly impressive . Its going to be exciting to watch the Gator offense in future years.He has a lot of Favre qualities as well .Expect a lot of quick strikes on long passes.

    I don't know why but Harabaugh has always rubbed me the wrong way. I really hope we crush them. It would be a nice statement game to say we are back to being real contenders too. For some reason, all the suspensions have me nervous.

    Also I hate the idea of playing 2 QBs or 3 if they bring in del rio here in the 4th. Pick one and ride with him for the whole game.

    You knew the Gators weren't going to beat the Wolverines. Hell, our QB was your best player, lol. Defense is going to have to lead the way again...Speight is horrible just like last year.

    Good luck on the rest of your season, Gator fans. HAIL TO THE VICTORS!!!
