Things dudes hope for

Dude just wants his Red Rider BB gun.


Dude just wants a top notch Offensive Coordinator.

Dude just wants all his bullshit to continue to mesmerize the majority of the American People so he can get a second term.

Observations from the press conference today w/ Muschamp

I have been reading up on Will Muschamp since he was announced as our new head coach.
Some information I got wrong was that he pronounces his name Moo-shamp. .....Wrong. ---- I heard him pronounce his own name during his press conference today, and it was (Must champ. only without the T. -- So it is MUS champ) -- I had been pronouncing it correctly for the past 5 years or so that I had been aware of him as an up and coming coach and DC , so in my previous post, I thought I was correcting myself, but I was not. -- I was wrong in thinking I was wrong.
I did not watch his press conference tonight, because i was busy being awesome and doing awesome stuff, but after I got home I looked it up on line and found the audio. (tried to find the video/audio and could not)
As I listened to that audio, these are the things 20 things I heard and or had observations about:
1. He talked about when he was a kid, and having season tickets in the North End zone but that he had to walk in from the street and walk down to get there. I remember that. --- I played HS football in that stadium when it was like that, before they built that massiveness that it is now, back when the field was still astro turf.
2. He talked about Spurrier, and Wuerffel and Tebow. He talked about the legends of Florida helping him, and he included Urban Meyer when he was talking that stuff.
3. He said the Gators are going to be a PRO- STYLE offense. --- (personally, I love this idea. Its the best way to recruit kids that want and anticipate playing in the pro's)
4. He talked about his eventual hire as OC, as being a Pro and College guy, with experience in both.
5. He talked about evaluating and playing to what they are and then recruit to what they want to be. (Talk is all that is, Meyer said the same stuff before he allowed Addazio to run the option to the short side of the field with Brantley)
6. He said they are going to run both the 3-4 and the 4-3 defense
7. He talked about the difference in the SEC being the linemen. (true that- there are some big and bad ass linemen in this league across the board)
8.- He said he does not know if he will call the defenses or not , and that it depends on who they hire as the DC. -- Reasonable enough
9. He said he is going to do the best thing For Florida, and that no one has been offered a job to date.(contradicting the news stories that say Applewhite was offered the OC and Smart the DC)
10. The only guy who will be back for sure is our Strength and conditioning coach ---Marriotti.
11. His Kids are named Whit and Jackson..... (How much more southern can you get with names like that.-- AWESOME)
12. He owns a beach house with JIMBO FISHER !!! and HE talks in the third person
13 - He said the Texas community was very good to Will Muschamp ...More Third person
14. He took this job immediately when it was offered. Mack was great, Mack was happy for Will Muschamp (Him talking in the third person some more)
15- He talked about pretending he was Tony Lilly when he was a kid. ( I pretended Like I was Tony Lilly when I was a Kid also when I played sandlot football , how awesome is that)
16 -Its funny when dudes talk in the third person
17- his first job was for 17k a year coaching in west Georgia and he lined the fields and did the wash. (I love that about him)
18 - He Gave Credit to a guy named ROY KID who was his head coach when he was coming up as an assistant at Eastern Kentucky. ( a very cool thing to do)
19- Dude lived at 1122 Nw 22nd street when he was a kid Right next door to the Space Ship looking house. -- I have driven by that house on that street a Million times. (Talking about the space ship part, obviously I did not know him when he was a little kid living next door. you can be sure that next time I am on that road I will pay attention to the house next door to that thing)
20- He said his strength is finding the keys to each kid that plays for him (in terms of motivation)
And one for good measure. - he quoted his dad and said look: "there's two things that happen in life: -- What happens, and how you react to what happens." (speaking about what he told them in terms of Meyers resignation and his hiring)
Overall, I was impressed. He certainly talked a little fast in the initial part of the news conference, but its not every day you are given the keys to one of the five most bad ass football teams in all of College Football. He has those keys now though, and he is understandably excited so I give him a pass on that. In his question and answer portion he was much more measured in the timing of his cadence. I think he may be the guy and that Foley might have gotten this right.

Jumpy Coach

The New Gator Head Coach jumping up in the air. We have a Jumpy Coach.
Nice height too. Who says White Man can't jump?
Its WILL MUSCHAMP, -- Evidently its Pronounced: Mooshamp -
Not unhappy with the choice, I think as far as Assistant Coaches getting a promotion to Head Coach, He is one of the prime candidates. Him and Gus Malzahn.
Always exciting to watch a new regime take over the program, at least until that point when the preponderance of the evidence indicates the job is to much. -- May or may not happen with this guy. Time will tell. he is Jumpy though, so he has that going for him.

Little replicas of perfectness

Busch Gardens, you evil bitch. tomorrow we shall duel. Your lines are just a minor inconvenience, until of course they kick my ass.
Tomorrow though, I will not go unprotected from your evilness. I shall bring multiple 13 year old girls who do not yet have the maturity to be impatient with your bullshit lines. They will still look forward to your rideness - They will not care about the shear and utter bullshit of waiting for 45 minutes to access the wonderfulness that is your rides. No, they will just ride and while they ride, they will scream, It will be screams of joy and it will be awesome.

In the future they will be leaders and women of influence. Tomorrow though, I will just consider them as they are: Little replicas of perfectness.

Joe Theisman Talks, My Ears Hurt...

Watching Thursday Night Football and I can't help myself but to comment on Joe Theisman. He causes me pain just listening to him talk. Its like he thinks he is laying down some kind of serious knowledge. He just seems so proud of himself, but in reality, his analysis is like being in a classroom when someone scrapes their finger nails on a chalk board. I need some kind of bleach to pour in my ears to make it feel better.

A little advice for Jeremy Foley, Free of Charge

As a Gator Fan, The aura I sport around on my body is that of arrogance. Although I began following the Gators in the Doug Dickey era of the Mid Nineteen Seventies, when I was a little kid, I also lived in Gainesville during the Spurrier coached era of the Nineteen Nineties, which featured the Six SEC championships, along with that most awesome year of 1996. *

The Two National Championships, and even last year's 13 and 1 Runner up in the SEC , under Meyer, also added to my overall sense of College football entitlement. This year was obviously an exception to that persona, but still, with this unexpected turn of events that is the retirement of Urban Meyer for the second and final time in the past year, We must look forward.
Urban was such a great coach, we made him quit twice. Well now it's done. You could see the tranquility during his press conference to know it's for real this time. He may be the Lance Armstrong of College Football coaches, in quiting and then un-quiting to try for the Tour DeFrance one more time, but he certainly is not the Brett Favre of the four quit variety, Brett Favre. Yes, he quit that first time last December, but he came back, and when he was riding up the Swiss alps on his little Million Dollar Bicycle that is the Gator Program this past season, he realized what a bitch gravity can be, and now he is done for real. At least for a couple of years anyway.
So as a Gator fan I have some suggestions for our Athletic Director, Jeremy Foley,---- Call this guy and hire him:

The Hoody....
What do you mean he would never quit his current job as the Best Football Coach in the world, at the highest level of all organized football, for arguably the Best team in the NFL this current year, and certainly the most dynastic of team we may ever see in that League?
It's the Florida Freaking Gators that are calling you Bill? (this is part of my overall , Gator Loving Arrogance, I spoke about in the first paragraph of this post, that I think he would at least listen)
In any event, the Guy drafts, and then subsequently Plays former Florida Gator football players all the time. Jeremy, Just do it, at the very least out of appreciation for all the love he brings our program. I believe his agent is Jimmy Sexton. Pretty sure if you make that phone call then Jimmy will put you on his Christmas Card list for allowing him to negotiate with Mr. Kraft from a position of strength. Might even give you a reach around.
/The Billster listens to all his Gator Buddies laugh at him for this outlandish arrogance in thinking Bellicheck would ever Leave the Patriots to come to Gainesville.
//Argues back that its probably an easier gig overall, and we could also probably pay him more money. (there are some Rich ass Bull Gators. ---I personally know a couple of em)
///Gets Mocked by those same Friends for his audacity in even suggesting it.
//// Jimmy Sexton personally calls me to encourage my blogging about this.
Okay Fine, Fuck you then mister Jeremy Foley, for not even giving the man a phone call and asking him.
What about This Guy then?

That's right. This is the Florida Freaking Gators we are talking about here, and if you don't think we could get Coach Eric Taylor from the fictional town and High School that is Dillon and the Dillon Panthers, then you are just Crazy Jeremy. This Guy invented the Phrase: Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, Can't Lose. That is just awesome Catch Phrasing right there. Is it not?
Plus, Every Game those Panthers Play in seems to come down to a last second touchdown to beat an Arch rival in a crucial game that somehow saves the entire town? JEREMY. THAT WOULD BE SUCH AWESOMENESS TO HAVE FOR OUR GATORS! --- Okay forget that Bill Bellicheck Guy, This is the guy to hire.
/Bills friends explain the concept of Fiction to him.
// Bill argues that this is for real because he loves watching this show on his HD T.V. and T.V. has never led him astray
FINE JEREMY, You just have no imagination. Okay, I love this program and as a Longtime Gator Fan My arrogance that seeps out of the pores of my skin says do not quit when Naysayers say Nay.
How about THIS GUY THEN:
JEREMY!! Its The Coach From the WATERBOY, Plus its also The FONZ. Seriously, How awesome would it be to have the FONZ as our Coach? He could just Knock his Knuckles on Brantleys Helmet, and Brantley would automatically be so very awesomely Cool, Just like TEBOW was when we Won all those Foooootbaww Games.
/ Fiction is again explained to Bill
// Bill finds himself quite beat down from all the NaySayers on his most excellent advice.
/// Bill realize Nay Sayers say NAY and gives up.
Okay then Jeremy, Just call up Dan Mullen and get that deal done. You are Such a party pooper.
* I do realize Coach Spurrier also won us one of those SEC Championships in the 2000's It was just easier to put that little asterisk sign and acknowledge that down here

The end of a 6 year era

The 2010 season for the Florida Gators was like a car wreck from the beginning. The Miami of Ohio game was when the car got a little squirrely. We clipped a guard rail in Alabama, hit a big old ditch against LSU, ran into some highway signs for the Mississippi State Game and ended up hitting a Tree named Lattimore to come to a complete and total stop. (I think Lattimore may still be running) then, as the pine needles from that tree began fluttering down into the cab of the vehicle, a huge branch from that same tree fell off and landed on the roof up in Tallahassee.
We were going to get that baby in the shop and fix it up the best we could before driving it down to the Outback Bowl to face the Nittany Lions on January 1rst, but then today we found out our top of the class, award winning driver was done with it all. It was like when Dale Earnhardt died in Daytona. Sure it was a wreck, but it didn't look like something that would end it all. Most Gator Fans were done with the crew Chief in Addazio, but I did not hear anyone seriously think it was time for a new driver.
He was our guy, he brought us Two National Titles along with Two SEC championships. He had a long rope, but I don't think he is like most people. I think the indignity of the wreck that was this season, along with the noise in the system about his Crew Chief, was just to much, and he looked at his bank account, and that account was large, and he looked at his beautiful wife, and she was hot and had been by his side for decades, and his kids, and he was like, to hell with all this.
This is Florida though. There is some serious cash available to pay someone. Foley, Go get it done, and Thank you Urban. I for one am Very Grateful for all the Florida Win Juice you laid down these past 6 years.

Atlas Shrugged - the movie update

They just finished filming Atlas Shrugged. It goes into post production and should be in the can by January. They are shooting for a release date some time in the second quarter of 2011. - They shot it on a low budget, and it is only the first third of the book. If it sells in theaters, they will make part two, and if that sells, part three.
It is a bunch of unknown actors, and the director is making his big screen film debut.
This is the actress that will play Dagny Taggert
Her name is Taylor Schilling.
I imagine they wont have a bunch of money for promotion, but hey, its the second most popular book ever written in terms of sales. (the Bible is number 1) I think it has a built in audience and will probably do okay if they didn't screw it up to much.
Because they are breaking it up into a trilogy, I have hope that they can make it true to Rand's vision.

Coming to a book store near you in March

Coming in March. I believe it is the 6th in the series, the last one came out in the 90's

December 7th

Today was a day that lived in infamy....

RIP Don Meredith

Turn out the lights, the party's over

Outback Bowl Bound

Outback bowl? after the year the Gators had? Talk about living the good life and being lucky.... Its like when I try to hit on the 28 year old hotties. Its absurd and crazy, but ever so often you end up in a better bowl game then you probably actually deserve.
It all comes down to money and I guess a 7 and 5 Gator Team will probably bring some dollars down here to the Tampa Area. -
Have not seen Penn State at all this year, but I am pretty sure they are a better 7 and 5 then our 7 and 5. Anyways, I Know where I will be on New Years Day.

Dexter is wearing me out this season. Love that show. Honestly, its about the 5th or 6th season and all I would say to you people that have not seen this show is that I am jealous. How awesome would it be to just rent season one from the beginning and watch this show for like four or five hours a day until you get into the second season , and then the third, and fourth etc until you get all the way through the sixth and current season? --
Those of you that have that available for your entertainment are in for some great t.v. watching.

Bama hating

You know whats funny about this one? everything, but especially when they talk about winning 13 thousand National Championships and that McElroy had only lost one game since middle school. - Of all 12 SeC schools, I hate Bama the most.

Addazio talking to Brantley while thinking He is talking with Tebow

Kid you not, I frequently have discussed the fact that Addazio does not even know who the current Florida Gators are: This cracks me up alot.
