I have been a Gator Hater because of Spurrier. He was always whiny, and they can have him.

Proud of the guys! Should be a fun team to root for this year.
I'm against picketing, but I don't know how to show it.

Yes! I was a little annoyed that they thought it would be such a cakewalk that their third string qb would be in the game in the 1st half. Defense looks vastly improved and more guys should be getting into the mix during the season. Isabella looks good, but I agree that we need help at receiver. Hopefully, we'll be able to throw more to the TE's, so if the other WR's can be just adequate we'll be okay. Honestly, I was thrilled with our offensive line. Last year they often played much worse against lesser teams than Florida. Looking forward to watching this team compete every game and win a few, too!.

It's also available through the Watch ESPN app on your streaming apparatus. You need to have a subscription to the SEC Network though.

It's all about UF playing poorly or without effort. We had a bunch of players who had great games. Build on this and get ready for Saturday!!
Your too sensitive. Our homers would have done the same.

For me, one of the more impressive and easy to overlook stats is the penalties. While Florida had a couple ugly, provoking personal fouls, our team was able to keep it's composure. This is especially difficult to do when behind and overmatched. This shows me a team that has good coaching and discipline, this will pay off in closer games, this is where the 'puck luck' we haven't had in past seasons happens in close game.

Agree 100%. But, we did have three penalties on punts, which are more glaring when it comes to coaching. Thank god Logan can boom them.

I didn't check who played in punt formation, but often you have a lot of younger guys and/or guys that don't play much. So, since it was week one and played in the Swamp I'll give those penalties a pass, but expect it to be better hereafter.

Two were for delay of game so I'm not quite so forgiving.

Delay of game would be a prime of example of inexperience. New kids on special teams looking a the crowd, not paying attention. Special teams coach was probably none too happy about it. It better not happen again.

The other was illegal formation.

Great experience, great game and in it almost all the way til the end. This big game trips are an absolute blast and if you haven't made one yet (Michigan, Wisconsin, ND, Penn State, UF), try to get down to SC this year or Tennessee/Mississippi State next year... you won't regret it.

^ Agreed. A lot of the "blast" depends on location, location. Doesn't need to be the big schools only. Annapolis for the Navy game and Chattanooga for the national championship were excellent weekends also.
