    Thee...Ohio State University

    Simple, from 52 seconds to 54 as gamble is attempting to turn around he has ahold of his jersey. It was a very nick nack call but he DID grabb his jersey...did it effect him not making the play? No, but holding is holding.

    Arkansas got screwed by the Refs? Are you kidding me? Arkansas was only in the game because of Florida TO's and mistakes. Florida outplayed them on offense and defense. Florida made a ton of mistakes and was very lucky to win. The pass interference was a good call. Deonte was going back to the ball and DB never looked back which is a flag like it or not! Other flag was bad but UF without flag was already in FG range and looking at 2nd and 8. By no means was it handed to the Gators. If Arkansas wants to win those games than they should turn to's into points!!!

    The DB definitely looked back before the football dropped 5 yards to the inside of both the WR and CB.


    Yea, looking at 2nd and 8 and in FG range, but 2nd and 8 is not 1st and 10 (and 15 yards closer to boot), and the UF kicker did miss a FG earlier in the game.

    Also, you say Arkansas was only in the game because of Florida's TO's and mistakes, one could argue Florida was only able to win it because of Arkansas' mistakes (missed FGs, 10 penalties for 92 yds - one of which was complete BS, and another one that was very questionable). 2 Missed FGs can be extremely deflating for a team, especially when they are so much less talented than the opponent (and know it).

    Florida outplayed them on offense and defense this is true, but not like Arkansas was Troy. The vaunted UF defense gave up 357 yards, 133 of which on the ground. UF only had 36 more total yards. UF was 4-11 on 3rd, Ark was 2-11. Both teams had 1 huge offensive play. Arkansas was in the game because they played well enough to keep pace with UF, not just because of turnovers, though that certainly helped a lot.

    They DB looked back way too late which was the PI call sorry. UF also missed a FG and 2 turnovers Florida had were in the redzone! 1 TO was at the 25 which Arkansas scored a td but only went 25 yard wow. Another TO when Florida was driving around the 50 which ended up in the missed FG. You cant tell a game by looking at the Stats. Florida played amazing defense for being put on the field so much after to's and take away a few plays and they shut them down. Did u actually watch the game or are u talking about stats? Stats can lie.

    * Note Sturgis also drilled a 51 yard fg so they were in fg range without the last flag.

    On the field so much after turnovers, but overall on the field less than Arkansas' defense.

    You could say aside from a few plays Arkansas shut down Florida's offense too. That argument cuts both ways.

    And so now the DB did look back, but too late? Before it was that he didn't look back.

    I didn't watch the 1st half, but I saw a competitive game in the 2nd half between two teams that were playing relatively close, and penalties definitely played a huge part at a very important point in the game (not saying they determined the outcome).

    Like I said, you are trying to make it sound like Arkansas was Troy out there and the only reason it wasn't 50-0 was because UF turned the ball over 4 times. Which the Arkansas defense did play a part in the takeaways by the way, and held UF to like 3 yards per carry.

    * Note I know, that's why I said he was in FG range at 2nd and 8.

    Florida had a tough time running but the Gators threw the air were very good. When Tebow had time they made plays. Arkansas got most of there yards off of like 4 different plays unlike Florida which only had one and now that i think about it a dropped 70 yard Td . The DB did not look back which was why he was flagged is what i was trying to say. But after he made contact he looked back and the ball hit the ground. He never played the ball at all!! I am not making them out to be Troy. Now ur just typing stuff up randomly. Please post where i ever mentioned them not being a good team or equal to Troy. Plain and Simple is Arkansas had plenty of chances and never cashed in. Florida got some luck at the end with flags but thats not the reason Florida won. They were moving the ball well like the previous drive. Arkansas only has itself to blame for most of those penalties. U watched one half so missed 3 of the TO's and Florida's missed FG. Let me fill u in. Arkansas had plenty of chances and only cashed in on one TD which they drove around 25 yards. To beat great teams u must score points

    A good team would've been in the game regardless of all the turnovers. Arkansas would've been in the game. It wouldn't have been as close, but they would've been in it. Just like LSU was in the game even though they were a worse team then Florida and even though I never doubted that Florida would win.

    Ok Congrats you found nothing. Me saying they were only in the game because of Florida TO's and mistakes has nothing to do with them being bad. Its just the truth cause if Florida scores points I think they would try to force things. Arkansas is a good team and I told you before the game that I thought the Gators were in for a tough battle. So you think I am calling the same team I had fears of beating the Gators bad or like Troy? :no:

    I HOPE Moody gets more chances. NOT one touch? Really? Horrible.

    I am guessing the reason Moody has not been used in the red zone is because he is prone to fumbling and the defensive players are looking to strip the ball from fumblers in the red one.

    The problems go much deeper than that .Everyone is keying on Tebow and since he is usually in the shotgun, defenses can penetrate our line and throw him for a 6 yrd loss .

    Getting the ball under center in the red zone will reduce those losses.

    Also we are missing Harvin and Murphy .Defenses are just keying in on Tebow and our OC seems to be scared of trying any passes .We need to introduce some variants to the playcalling there IMO.

    Moody has had a lot of fumbles and that would scare me the most him in the redzone. Heard that the Gators will be running more plays under center in the redzone. However if we can fix these redzone problems than we will be a much better team. We will be better on defense and on offense

    When I was a little boy, I lived on the south west border (Fargo Ga.) of the Okefenokee, at the headwaters of the Suwannee River. Fargo had a population of maybe 75-100 people. Once a month, the kids were treated to a movie that was shown in a platoon sized tent with folding chairs to sit on. The tent was located right behind the train station on the high banks of the river. The cost of the movie was one Merita Bread label. Before we were allowed in, the owner had to do a search to make sure no cottonmouths, rattlesnakes or alligators had taken up residence there.

    Any truth to the rumors of Charlie Strong expecting to be a head coach after this year at Maryland, Virginia or UCF? I've heard that those three schools are expected to heavily pursue him and I even heard a rumor of UGA but I don't see it.

    I'm surprised he's not a head coach already, he's been at UF for so long, and he's obviously a great defensive coordinator.

    Heard the UGA rumors too, But no way they hire Strong IMO. Georgia is a top 10 job in the country and while Strong deserves to be a coach he does not deserve the Georgia job yet. I think he will be the next head coach at Virginia

    There has been alot said about this and one factor is his marriage to a white women. I have no idea why that would cost him a job but that has been thrown around. However if no one wants him we will gladly keep him at Florida. :yes:

    Gotta agree with this. I've never thought Spikes was dirty, but that play definitely looked dirty on his part (and probably was).

    Don't forget his hair was being pulled a few times when his helmet was ripped off.

    I was there. Not sure what the cameras showed, but the game was REAL testy between the teams. A LOT of extra activity after the plays. Especially towards the end when UGA knew the game was over.

    Not saying I condone what Spikes did (or appears to be doing in that vid), but I kind of understand it was a nasty game.

    I also heard that several UGA players were trying to gouge Tim's eyes. That's why at one point during the game Tim squirted water into his eyes, they believe he was poked. And Spikes was retaliating.

    They said on ESPN a few minutes ago that Spikes would be suspended for the first half of the game against Vanderbilt.

    What a joke the SEC is accepting that.

    Spikes could have blinded the kid and only gets half game suspension.

    I know this is his first offence but jeez I thought it was worth 1 game.
