Ok..so i know there are a few of you out there that may not agree.. and there will always be controversy until the BCS decides to make a darn playoff scheme, but who the heck care..i'm glad my boys showed Oklahoma that the SEC is not just your average joe schmoe...and that Tebow isn't the # 4 quarter back like the smack talking said!!!!!
I LOVEEEE MY GATORS.

Tebow is awesome. He is very devout and he definitely walks the walk. The things he has done in his short life is amazing.
Some day I'll tell you a bedtime story about my visit to the Gator Growl.

LOL at cb...i think we all have stories from gator growl LOL..but you'll def have to tell me someday.
and yes...tebow is a great qb but also a great person. I was actually shocked he got a personal foul last night for taunting one of the players with the gator chomp..it was actually quite nice to see him not so straight and narrow LOL

Yes the Gators Rock! Tebow is a great player and a great all around guy.

I'm glad he decided to stay and complete his education.
Ready for your bedtime story?
When I was in high school, our band went to the Gator Growl each year. Spurrier won the Heismann in 66. The Snoopy cartoon series was doing the "Happiness Is" series. So, there were banners all over Gainesville that read "Happiness Is A Few Drops of Sweat From A Steve Spurrier Jersey". OK. Got this picture so far?
When I met my second husband (now deceased), he was the trainer for the 49ers. We were at a team party after a game and Steve and Jerri came over and introduced themselves. I looked at him and said I remember "Happiness Is A Few....". He was surprised! He said, "You were at the Gator Growl? How old are you?" I didn't tell him I was beginning high school then. He just went on thinking I was his age and looked very young!
I loved the Gator Growl. We worked so hard for that show. The bands were amazing.

If only Utah had had the chance to play Florida...........

cb...that's a great story...growl always is fun!
alinnell-yes i agree it would have been nice to see...i have been saying (like many) we really need a play off there's been many years, i haven't agreed with the bcs pics all the time. Hopefully they'll figure it out soon.

I think the consensus with everyone is that the BCS really doesn't work. There was an interesting article on CNN sports about how they could make a play off work even with the bowl games. Kind of like basketball's Road to the Final Four.

So true. So very true.

lol....that's ok..not all of us are crazy insane sport freaks LOL

Read between the lines.....
My favorite pro team is the RAIDERS
My favorite player is PEYTON MANNING...
WHY? Because he stayed in school when he could have come out early and been a high...maybe #1 pick....why? because he said he "owed" it to the university for giving him the scholarship
My favorite college team is the USC TROJANS (as if you didn't know...wink)
My favorite teams QB had one more year left....he declared for the NFL because he will probably be the #1 QB taken
Tim Tebow had a good chance to be the #1 QB taken....he is staying in school....
Guess which one I admire more?

oh and WAY Freakin' cool for you MARE!!
01-16-2009, 09:33 PM
ez- i am glad tebow decided to stay. I understand how it is so easy to take the money and run..but its nice to see many players stay. Sorry to hear your qb took the money (or hint of money). It looks like the gators only lost harvin. Most of the others decided to stay...very cool.

Gatorgal: I think us SEC fans are the most rabid of all the college football fans. Who could help it with a conference like ours?
By the way, sorry about blocking that extra point back in the fall. Looks like y'all recovered ;>

oh and WAY Freakin' cool for you MARE!!
Thanks, Pal. It was fun meeting Steve and watching the look on his face. He's only 5 years older than I am but I guess I looked younger than my early 20s. LOL.

zen...we are some insane fans..and yes we did recover it appears. I think it was the move to kick their butts in gear!
