It's comments like that that make Canes fans hate gaytor fans. Quit being a gaytor jock strap puller and try to understand why the U has the reputation as a national powerhouse. Maybe if the gaytors get tough and don't play sissy ball they will get that recognition, too. Every team has an off year (people in Gaynesville should know that). It's how you rebound from them. GO 'Canes!

Nothing on Earth like Hurricane football? Hmmm, 7-6 and playing your bowl game on a blue field, nothing like it!

An off year? How many in a row does it take before you realize you stink? And you had a rep. as a national powerhouse. No one fears the U anymore!

UM sissies! Go to the SWAMP for a real championship workout.
Listen up Gayter boy, you obviously have a short memory, remember the last time we went to your so called intimidating "swamp"?? 41-16 embarrasment,we had about 300 yards rushing in which MaGahee had about 160 of those and 2 TD's and he was just warming up! WE OWN YOU! So take your 2 little ringa and put em up with the Sissynoles and you still dont have what we have. No body else has won 5 titles in 18 years. Cant wait to go to "Canesville" again next year and beat you like a drum!!!Typical ignorant Gayter fan from a trailer park.

they don't teach math @ UF.How many national
champions did you say you have?? I can tell you this
much, if the Gators would man up & play UM every
year you would have 0, that's ZERO NATIONAL CHAMPS!!

It's sad when these schools like the Gaytors finally win and act like such fools. Come talk when you're on our level consistently, we had a bad coach and that's over with. Shut your mouth and enjoy your momentary success.

When is the last time the Gators played anybody away from the Swap west of MS during the regular season? The answer is when they had to travel by railroad. They play nobody of any caliber outside the SEC. And the SEC is tough, however the bottom teams in that conference are awful.

Not too mention the norm is that Gators make awful NFL players for the most part. And the reality is the Gators refuse to play UM for obvious reasons, not too mention it's been a decade or more since they have defeated the Hurricanes, Enjoy it and it's only a matter of time before reality hits, like it does every program.

Yeh, you got me there! Too bad it's not the 80's anymore! You haven't done much since then despite playing in chump conferences! You want to talk present and future or you want to go back in history? Besides, the Gators are the winningest college football program since 1990! Live with it cane boy, the u is thru and the Gators are here to stay! Are you even old enough to remember the canes first NC?

Sorry Dave but consistently 7-6 in a chump conference isn't very appealing! We will stay put! Fine, the coach sucked excuse! What makes you think Shannon is going to be any different? What has he done? How many games has he won? Didn't you guys love Coker when he took over? Make up your minds! You'll be back here next year with another excuse for this years failures and saying you'll win a NC next year! Same old song Cane fans!

Simple question? When is the last time the Canes traveled west of the MS? Say what you want about the few bad teams in the SEC but the U would have been hard pressed to beat them last year! And the scrubs from the ACC are something to be proud of? Don't throw rocks when you live in a glass house!

All that's missing is the CRACK and the 38 specials.....but I'm sure Ray Lewis will bring those! I thought the U stood for Underachiever?
