Not long for this world.


Waiting for Jesus to kick him through the goal posts of eternity.

LOL on the wide right. It's hard to hate on Bobby Bowden, even gator fans can't. He is too nice of a guy. I saw yesterday that he has a terminal illness. 90 something years old.

Earlier this morning I googled Dick van Dyke to see if he was still kicking. He is! 95 years old. There is hope for all of us!

Bobby was not the font of integrity everyone would like to portray him as. He was a good old boy but he ran an outlaw program. The press gave him a pass because he knew their Mama's favorite cornbread recipe. But, his real legacy is separate rules (or lack thereof) for his stars (think Jaworski's Rufinol, aka Date Rape Drug, "escapade" and Bowden's response regarding "Polish rules", along with many others). He punished those who weren't stars, but his stars were home free.

Garcia is right, I always admired him, especially when I was a student at FSU, but in recent years it's become clear that his "aw shucks" fa├žade was just that.
He was an old south football coach and nothing more.

Factually pointing out that the "saint bobby" thing was manufactured BS is not "hate" ... it is the truth

Thanks Larry. One thing we have learned over the years is that CFL's football opinions seldom have any basis in facts. He is obviously averse to logic. Perhaps he should have chosen to attend a school with a Logic program vs. an engrg trade school.

Over the years have known a LOT of people that suffer from this same affliction of blind, unquestioning, unreasoning loyalty when it comes to their sports team(s). In their world, there is only 2 states of existence; this same level of blind loyalty and "haters"

It is very odd to me and has been repeatedly shown to be often ultimately detrimental to the growth of the very thing they are so very loyal to

I grew up a Gator fan, and went to UF (class of '76). It is amazing to hear all the newbies talking about the Gator's "proud tradition". I remember that tradition, and it was nothing to be proud of. We always, ALWAYS, lost the big game, just when it appeared to be "our season". Our proud tradition began with, and so far has only included, Steve Spurrier's tenure. (Urban Meyer fielded great teams that, with exceptions, seemed to be largely comprised of miscreants and never seemed to embrace the University or its fans.) Too many Gator fans, esp the young ones, are arrogant and entitled. (I went to Spurrier's last game vs. Md in the Orange Bowl, when UF should have been playing for the NC in Pasadena. However, once again, they had lost their last game, this time to UT, not UGa. The UF kids were ragging on the Md kids, and not in a fun way. Finally the Md kids had enough and one said, "Hey, you can't ruin my night. We were picked to be last in the ACC and here we are in the Orange Bowl. Where were you supposed to be??!!" A GREAT putdown.) Too many of our fans feel entitled and think we should be playing for an SEC and national championship every year. Knowing our history, I am grateful for success when it is achieved, but, temper it with the knowledge that it is fleeting. I think UM, F$U and UCF should adopt a similar outlook - gratitude and appreciation for the relatively few successes we enjoy. And, no, UCF does not have Natl Championship. Congratulations on a perfect season, but, they need to accept facts and get over themselves.

UCF has a National Championship just like any other school that has claimed it in the past. We can rehash all the co-National Champions in the past if you want. Plus, it's in the NCAA record books that UCF is Co-Nationial Champion with Bama. Let me know if you want me to point you to the NCAA.com link to show you that.

The College Football Playoff is an invitational owned by ESPN. It's protectionism to the schools that make the most money, not the best team. UCF was the best team in the Nation in 2017. The only undefeated team, won their conference (Bama didn't win theirs). Plus, UCF beat the team that beat both the teams in the CFP invitational, Georgia and Bama. Why were two teams in the same conference in the the finals? It's rigged...Thus, UCF claimed a National Championship and I'm glad it's a thorn in everyone's else's side. Deal with it the best you can. Dispute it the best you can. But, your comments can't take it away.

Once again, you post, "Blah, blah, blah". You should change your handle to "One Note".

It's in a gator's DNA, Dave. How can you not know that?
