Were any of you at the game? and were my ears playing tricks on me, because it sounded like after UF scored the first time, you all were screaming;

"F**K YOU TEBOW!"

:confused:

Sorry not at the game but I have been to many and I have never heard that type of chant from the crowd. Not saying it did not happen, but seem a bit unlikely...

I would be shocked to say the least. But I've heard some pretty bad stuff from the student sections, so who knows?

I swore I heard it too. It sounded like "F*ck Tim Tebow", lead by clapping (same beat as say "let's go redsox" or something). And it was loud, definitely a large group doing it

Then it probably happened, you could not hear anything like that on TV. Probably a bunch of drunk students...

C'mon, this has been discussed for the 100th time...yes they were chanting F U Tebow during that red zone possession.

Okay, I didn't see that discussion weg. I was just curious. I guess it explains the whole Tebow cell phone taunt a little. I didn't like it when he did that, but it is more understandable to me now. Thanks for the info.

He did the taunt before the chant, that's what triggered it. Of course it was the LSU fans that triggered the taunt with the voice mails and texts..........it's just a big cycle of nastiness.

Agreed.

Tarnished the game, IMO.

Tebow needs a class from Danny boy. He needs to rise above it. And let his play do the talking. He'll learn.

The more popular chant of the night was "Teabag Tebow" in the same style. Once again, this was primarily post his "get pumped" arm motions in front of the student section after he scored. Most of us students had been tailgating and drinking since 9AM.

Okay thanks.

I am really shocked that LSU fans have a single thing to say about class, when half their stadium was shouting the F word at Tebow, that's pathetic.

Don't any of you bring your kids to the stadium?

So the justification for this conduct, let me see if I can get this straight;

Tebow pretended to put a phone to his ear, and Meyer stepped/jumped on the tiger eye? No, sorry, you people should be embarrassed of that.

I know I would be.

Frankly, I wouldn't even know how to explain it to my kids if that happened when I took them to a game, it was hard enough explaining it to them on the TV. That's just horrible. I've been to beer infested pro games and they don't even act like that. And before you LSU fans go off the deep end, if UF had done this, I would be red faced with shame, and I would apoligize on behalf of my university. I haven't seen any apologies yet, just some mighty poor defense of reprobate conduct.

Are you kidding me??? GET OVER IT!!!! This is rediculous, it goes on everywhere, but you just dont hear about it all the time because not all fans cry like little babies when their team loses and the fans taunt the opposing team. It happens in high school, it happens in college, and it happens in the pros. Its part of the game, it does not "tarnish the game." Yall are the biggest bunch of babies ever, is it really THAT shocking that taunting happens in a college football game between 2 rival teams? Is it THAT terrible that you have to make a post about it on a message board so that other fans can shed tears with you??? :rotf: Get over it... Grow up, THIS IS BIG 12 FOOTBALL!!!! haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa :rotf:

I'm sorry, I'm a Christian, I don't use the F word, I don't allow my children to use the F word, and I don't take my children places that think it's okay to use the F word. This issue is larger than sports.

As for you, you vanish for months and show up when UF drops a couple, what gives? Are you going to hang out when it's rough for you as well, or hide in the bushes as usual? :D

Ok, that is a good thing... however, I dont think that Tim Tebow, Urban Meyer, or 92,000 LSU fans give a flying F word who you are or what you stand for, and they will taunt and curse at their own preference, whether you like it or not... and guess what? Your fans do it too! What??? oh no... was I the first to tell you??? Sadly, its true. MY, oh my, what hath college football come to? Has competition really led to unruly fans??? The tragic tarnishment of the greatest game ever... please say it isn't so. If you cant take it, then go join the gallery every weekend at the PGA tour, it is more suited for "soft" fans such as yourself, but dont forget to say "earmuffs!!" when Tiger hits it in the woods! :)

And yes, even when we get spanked by numerous teams the rest of the season I will be right here laughing at most of you crying because a fan said a dirty word at a football game...

Well, I'm not trying to change the world, just expressing an opinion. As for UF, I've been to many, many games and never heard such as that. I take my kids, so do a lot of people maybe that's why? I just think foul language is in poor taste, anytime, anywhere. Obviously if you have to curse to get your point across, you are weak intellectually. Looking forward to our game in November. I think when I post then, I'll have the lovely song "who's crying now" playing in the backround just for you. ;)

We were just talking about this at the office. One guy said he swore he heard it (on TV). I didn't remember hearing it, but then again I'd put down half a bottle of whiskey by that point.

One thing we both laughed about, was that love them or hate them, right or wrong, LSU has one unique fan base. I mean really, that they would go as far as getting the cell phone # of an opposing QB and organizing a coordinated effort to call and harass him, no matter how wrong, is freaking hilarious.

I also don't see that as anything to get too upset about, it actually is sort of funny, I feel bad for him, but I guess he learned the hard way, SEC fans are the most passionate in the world. The venom for Tebow is a good thing the way I see it, do opposing fans hate on players that aren't a threat?

Rarely in my experience.

He's finally getting respect, albiet negative, in your face type stuff. He should be happy. I know I am. The future is so very bright.

I will say that not a single person outside of the students was chanting that. Not that it is excused. A lot of the Tiger fans and embarrassed by our students this year because of their attitude.

"F you Spurrier"
"F you Tebow"

CBS actually gave the refs a warning after that Tebow chant that if more profanity was heard on TV, the team would get penalized.

I was hoping it would happen again, just so the team would get penalized and maybe the students would realize how wrong it is.

There are all kinds of fights taking place on campus on this issue. Students are arguing that they have every right to do it, while a lot of students, and everyone older than 22 knows it is just plain stupid and immature.

The band had a touchdown song/dance they had been doing for years, and this past year the students added "you suck" to it. OK... Well it's stupid, but I guess it's not that bad right? They added "You suck, cock" when we played USC, and now the university doesn't want us to play it anymore.

Who is winning in this situation?

jrltiger
10-08-2007, 04:25 PM
I'm with Berge, I'm a student, some of the stuff is entertaining, some of it crosses the line. The "You suck, cocks" was inappropraite, but both schools adminstrations are to blame for that. USC sells tons of merchandise with "cocks" on it, knowing full well its double-entendre, and as a "Gameday T-Shirt" the LSU student union sold shirts that said, "Beat the Cocks". How can you expect students to not play along with it?

As for the F You Spurrier and F You Tebow, over the line and uncalled for, no doubt about it. And the Teabag Tebow, it was kinda funny the first time, the second time it was worth a chuckle, by the third time it was really old.

10-08-2007, 04:30 PM
You wont see me crying or complaining one bit, I fully expect us to lose that game and a few more (but hope we dont, obviously). We are still a work in progress, and next year will be the year. Our QB controversy is somewhat settled for now, but that may change by the end of the week. We will not be a great team if we dont know who the best QB is on our team, bottom line. Unfortunately we cant utilize Weatherford and Lee like Leak and Tebow simply because Tebow and Leak are a million times better than our 2 guys. fortunately for us, we are better defensively and that make keep us in games and win games for us when our offense struggles. We were clearly the better of the 2 teams in jacksonville, that wont be the case in a few of our games towards the end of the schedule, I say we will climb to the top 15 then get beat which will send us in a downward spiral for the rest of the year, we get down on ourselves to easily

However, in the same token, I was furious about Gator fans yelling and screaming during our Alma Mater before the game.

Also the stomping on our eye, but that's not the fans' fault. It is not appreciated when excuses are made like "They did not do it to us to be arrogant or piss us off." BS.... When they wait for our team to leave, run straight to the eye, and when the officials break it up, and they just Gator Chomp the stadium booing them, yes, it was purposely.

I think they did it to mess with LSU, and I think it was not a wise choice.

I agree, I think when you are guest in a stadium, regardless of which stadium, you should respect it. But I don't run the football program at UF, I do know we have had brawls with FSU for doing the exact same thing to our F. Maybe a history lesson is in order for Coach Meyer, I still think he's learning as he goes. If he in fact lead the charge as some have indicated.

They go to the center of the field, make a ring and do eyeopeners, with two players going head to head. It is possible this is what they were doing. However most LSU fans that were in attendance said they were "stomping" the eye, so I don't know what happened, I wasn't there.

I was there. It wasn't a warm up drill. I doesn't really matter, I was just wondering if it was a UF tradition to go to the center of the field and jump up and down or if just happens before big road games or what?

No doubt, it was intentional and Meyer was behind it 100%. Thing is, it doesn't bother me one bit, Meyer's doing whatever he can to pump his team up. I thought it was funny though, the refs ran out there real quick and broke it up and one had his finger in Meyer's face quick like. I've seen pregame penalties from stuff like that, thought they'd call one right there.

It happened in the North End Zone in the student section.

It was not half the stadium as I saw you state.

I did not chant this nor would I.


I will say that when I went to the Swamp, I respected the alma mater when UF did theirs and that old boys of Fla. thing that ya'll do.

I did not do as I saw some obnoxious gators do...they were making a lot of noise during our alma mater.

They did jump on our eye on purpose. I thought that they saved that kind of thing for the U and FSU. We must have been elevated to rival now.

Okay 1/4th the stadium...like that really matters :raz:

I've never agreed with intentionally disrespecting opponents stadiums/fans or players. I don't care if it's FSU, UM, or LSU.

Let your play do the talking has always been my motto.

Update on the "phone" situation....it seems Bob Tebow went on a Jacksonville radio station and reported that Tim had recieved hundreds of phone calls from LSU fans, and that some of them contained death threats, and threats to rape Tebow's mother.

Yep, that's just hilarious, isn't it :confused: :blah:

The chant most definitely happened and it is not the first time. Georgia 2003 I was in the student section and the Georgia players were doing their pregame walk of the field and the student section was yelling obscenities at them and then the players started taunting us. That got the student section to begin a chang of "F*** You Georgia"...it was nuts I had never heard anything like that happening until I became a student at LSU.

The more info has come out on what happened, the more disturbing it gets. Threatening a college kid's life and threatening to rape his mother over a ****ing game. I hope they enjoy prison because it won't be that hard to track all of the calls and text messages.

Does anyone know the laws behind threats?

My guess would be 18 U.S.C. 875

You can find it here:

http://www4.law.cornell.edu/uscode/html/uscode18/usc_sec_18_00000875----000-.html

Keep in mind that in order to have an actionable threat, it would need to be one that a reasonable person would take seriously in order to overcome the First Amendment "true threat" requirement. I don't think we have that here.

Of course, if we had an anti-douche bag statute, these LSU fans would be toast.

I do not condone either but I bet a million buck no one on this site made those calls.

The more info has come out on what happened, the more disturbing it gets. Threatening a college kid's life and threatening to rape his mother over a ****ing game. I hope they enjoy prison because it won't be that hard to track all of the calls and text messages.

That's absolutely horrible. There's no reason or sense in that. I'm very passionate about my football team but come on that's just stupid. I hope these punks get what's coming to them.

I do not condone either but I bet a million buck no one on this site made those calls.
I am not going to apologize for some dumb fans that happen to support the same team I do.
I'm fairly sure the there are murders and rapist in prison that also pull for some NCAA team.

You don't have to apologize for them but I dont want to hear anymore complaints about Tebow's taunts after what some LSU fans have put him through.

And I have never complained about Tebow. I think the guy is an amazing competitor and he is just elease some energy after the TD runs. Who am I to say how he celebrats a TD I have never set foot on college football field much less a area like he was in on Sat Nigh in BR. I think the guy is a good fella and a great QB. Not to mention; I am sure is getting more offers form the ladies than I have in my entire lifetiem.

Okay 1/4th the stadium...like that really matters :raz:

I've never agreed with intentionally disrespecting opponents stadiums/fans or players. I don't care if it's FSU, UM, or LSU.

Let your play do the talking has always been my motto.

Update on the "phone" situation....it seems Bob Tebow went on a Jacksonville radio station and reported that Tim had recieved hundreds of phone calls from LSU fans, and that some of them contained death threats, and threats to rape Tebow's mother.

Yep, that's just hilarious, isn't it :confused: :blah:

The feds are involved now...I wonder will those fans still be laughing in the chain gang?

Disgusting.

SM, it wasn't 1/4 of the stadium either. It came from the student section. You paint that like it was all the fans. As I stated earlier, I was in the SEZ and did not hear it. People who watched it on tv told me that they did hear it. I would not make such a chant and most of the people that I know would not do it either.

I hope that whoever made those threating calls get what's coming to them. It was wrong and not funny as you have stated.

But I also get the impression that you enjoy getting on your highhorse and make every Tiger fan a pos. I think that you enjoyed getting on your soapbox and wrap yourself in self righteousness.

You profess to live as Christ did...but what part of your anger against all things LSU is Christ like?

GAINESVILLE, Fla. — The owner of the towing company involved in Florida safety Tony Joiner's burglary case said Saturday he received more than 200 threatening phone calls.

More than a dozen of the calls were death threats and others were bomb threats, Stan Forron told Florida Today. Several callers even offered to pay the $76 towing bill if Forron would drop the charge.

"I'm just glad it wasn't Tim Tebow, that's all I can say," Forron told the newspaper. "I think I would be covered in 10 feet of concrete right now if it had been Tebow."

Joiner was arrested around 5 a.m. Tuesday for allegedly trying to take his girlfriend's car out of the towing company's impound lot.



Glass house. (http://www.palmbeachpost.com/sports/content/gen/ap/FBC_T25_Florida_Joiners_Arrest.html) I did a little search, and I found dozens of stories about the tow company owner, yet I cannot find a single article on a threat to Tebow. SInce we have had an LSU fan talk about how it was happening, I will not deny it, but I wonder why this is not all over the news and ESPN. I found one article on ESPN.com. Really surprised it is not getting more air time, I wish it was.

According to Tebow, LSU fans began lighting up his cell phone early last week, leaving harassing and sometimes physically threatening, voice and text messages on his cell phone.

"Some people did take it way too far, farther than you should take it with sports," Tebow said.





From the horse's mouth ;)....as for the tow truck company threats. I wholeheartedly, not with any reservation, like some of you seem to be want to do, condemn any gator fans who threatened, or harrassed the owner in any way. I find such conduct repulsive, and I catagorically state that such fans should be excommunicated from gator fandom.

Also, it would seem reasonable that you all would do the same with your criminal fans, instead of defending them. :rolleyes:

That is what I have issue with.

Not at all, some LSU fans condemned the criminal conduct outright, some continue to attempt to defend it, or lessen the severity of it. This is what I have issue with. As for my Christianity, that's between me and my Savior, my opinion on the criminal actions of some of the LSU fanbase, has very little to do with my righteousness, or lack thereof, in fact it's all about what Jesus did. :)

It was a solid majority, no doubt about that, but I was just saying it wasn't everyone. There's no doubt in my mind it was audible to everyone, but if 8,000 people are screaming something in unison, it's probably going to be pretty loud. I'm just trying to defend the people who weren't yelling it (such as me), but I know people heard it cause it was loud.

Can we pin one thread titled, "Tebow: Superman or Myth..." This thread could cover all taunts about him and by him...It can cover any man kisses, great plays, boneheaded plays, crying (being a baby, or just being a competitor), his run to the Heisman, and his courting of Lois...By the time he leaves in January 2010, we should have a nice thread going :rotf: It would save alot of space on the board

Well I just think its funny that you all get on Gator fans for defending Tebow ... if something like that had happened to one of your players, I'm betting you all would have been pissed. Taunting players is fine ... what happened last week went over the line. There is hype around Tebow ... if you are starting to just realize that now, I don't know where you've been hiding. There will be always something said about him, good or bad. If you are so sick of hearing about it, don't click on anymore Florida threads. Simple solution. :)

I totally agree. I wasn't happy either when Tebow taunted the LSU fans but given the fact that he got death/rape threats, do you seriously think we should be pointing the finger at Tebow? I mean its totally ok for fans to be fans but everyone freaks out when a player gives them a taste of their own medicine.

Are you really still crying over Tebow getting taunted and getting verbal threats over the phone? Why should he be defended by his cry-baby fans? Do you think he cares??? Do you think "Teabg Tebow" really keeps him up at night? Do you honestly think it hurt his feelings? Thats all I want to know. Do you REALLY think he fears for his life after getting those text messages and voicemails from LSU fans?? Hell no he don't, hell no he don't and hell no he dont. So why do you care? I know Gator fans think they are above everyone else (especially with the recent success) and to me it seems like you are trying to find some sort of consolation to fill your emotional void. So you choose to degrade the LSU fans in general because they said hurtful things to Milo's Tebow himself. Awwwww poor Timmy. "We are still better than you because your student sections said ugly things." BOO HOO. It's like you think that a UF fan has never said a bad word in the swamp. And they sure havent said it towards an opposing teams player... oh my, that would just be grounds for an exile from the stadium! Milo can handle himself. Get over it.


Btw, this is all based on the assumption that he was bawling his out out after the game because they lost, if he was crying because of the fans chanting mean words, I retract every statement I ever said about him, good or bad, and I will have a new (worse) opinion of him.

Dear Tebow and Gator fans,

As a dedicated Tiger fan, I want to send out a sincere apology to Tim Tebow and his family for the childish and imbecilic action of some LSU "fans" to advertise his phone number. Also, I want to apologize for any of the calls that originated from an LSU fan. I'm horrified that these came from LSU and anyone who calls themselves an LSU supporter. Hopefully you know that this represents only a small number of our fans, and just how you probably feel, I'd like to see these people suffer a little for their behavior.

Tebow is an incredible athlete and appears to have the strong character to go along with it. He deserves lots of respect.

My experience with the Gator fans was very favorable at the game and we all had a good time sharing food and drinks. The way it should be.

Cheers

I'm like 90% of all American football fans I'm sick of hearing Tebow this Tebow that.I could care less if the LSU fans chanted Tebow sucks Tebow whatever that just going to happen especially at LSU or Florida.

Maybe you should check that out a little closer, I started a congrats thread in your area, I have no particular disdain for LSU, in fact I like the whole idea of redneck cajuns running wild on the bayou, very similar to my kind of people, I come from redneck swamp people, probably more like you all than any of the rest of the SEC.

It was wrong how he was done, period. Now you can continue to say, well it wasn't that bad, this is football :blah: it was just words, until the cows come home.....it was wrong. You can't change that. The best you can do is apoligize for your actions and leave it at that.

I'm like 90% of all American football fans I'm sick of hearing Tebow this Tebow that.I could care less if the LSU fans chanted Tebow sucks Tebow whatever that just going to happen especially at LSU or Florida.
But the phone calls is way out of line for any fan base and to attempt to try and defend it is just as bad.

Bama will soon have a law named after him. Get used to it. :)

hmmmm 900+ views of this topic, local and national news reports...I guess it is a hot topic, for everyone, there goes that theory genius. :D

You mistake giving a sh!t, for crying. I know the noles haven't done much for you to care about lately, but how simply stating a contrary opinion is somehow "whining" is beyond me. The outcome of these events effects me personally not one iota. The fact is you are reveling in this because it's the closest you've been able to come to victory over the gators in 3+ years. Seminoles internet wide have been making exactly the same type of pronouncements you have. :think:

The gators have fallen down, the gators aren't any good anymore, see, see, look Tebow cried, see, see, look, look the gators finally lost, yip-eee! :blah:

For this reason, I find absolutely no neutral merit in your comments, and naturally the offending fanbase would side with you.


There is where you are wrong. If this game had been played at Florida, and your student section chanted the likes of: Ear-ly Douche-ette, or Hester the Child molester, and LSU fans were crying about it it 4 days later, I would say the exact same thing. Loud, obnoxious, drunken students are a big part of college football (generally speaking). And no I am not saying Vulgarity, life threats, rape threats, and alcohol are part of it so dont try to turn this around. I am saying "In General" students are an enormous part of the stadium atmosphere, and along with the majority of students comes the obnoxiousness, drunkeness, and vulgar comments. Rarely to never will you see the season ticket holders start chants like that, but some will happily join in, and others will shake their heads in disgust. There is nothing that can be done about this in football stadiums, so you have to take it for what it is and look the other way if you so choose.

And yes, what you are doing is whining. You are expressing your opinion on something that is offensive to you in a peevish complaint. That is a definition of whining and that is what you, and your gator compadres are doing whether you want to agree or not.

I know that the chants weren't classy, but football is not a classy sport y'all. .

Out of curiosity... why?

It's a sport. It being a contact sport doesn't give a right to fans to be violent. Labeling it a sport without class is just a excuse for people that don't know how to conduct themselves. Its also a insult to any player past or present that did represent themselves, their university or city, and their fans with class.

Don't blame the sport. This one is on society and there are no excuses.

Man, I guess we put football on different pedestals. Think about the advertisements that have football themes in them. Most of them are either deodorant or beer commercials. Wow, the class! Golf commercials involve things like investment banking, etc. I'm a student at LSU. I get really drunk before the football game, like 90% of the other students. It just doesn't come off as a classy thing. We are screaming our little asses off at some guys knocking the absolute hell out of each other. When you think about it, there is a good percentage of football players who aren't exactly classy either. I'm not saying their aren't classy fans and players or coaches, I know there are. After the Florida game, besides the fight one UF guy tried to start with my friends, almost all of the UF fans were super nice and I was back to them in return. Mostly "See you in Atlanta wishes," etc. I love sports. I absolutely love college football, but part of the reason I like it is because it's not ballet. Know what I mean? It can get dirty and fun. I've been playing music all my life and I enjoy going to the symphony or a jazz show, but every once in a while I want to go to a badass rock show. Saturday night in Death Valley is like a rock show and I love it. I guess that's why I'm defending it now that this has gone on for 4 days.

Thats a fair answer. You are going a little farther with the class comment than I am, I guess the proper word would be sportsmanship.

I drink before our games, but I've never called a player and threatened to rape their mom, or burned down my town after a win, or throw things at opposing players/fans, or cheered when opposing players got hurt etc. Hell last chant I participated in toward another player was for Gibson at Georgia when he was down and we all wanted to see him get up.

Guess thats my problem, people using football as a liscense to just say screw common sense and other people and do stupid stuff. That goes for players also.

There is always gonna be idiots, but people managed to go to and enjoy the game for over 100 years without having to participate in actions that seem to be becoming the norm for football fans in America.

Glass house. (http://www.palmbeachpost.com/sports/content/gen/ap/FBC_T25_Florida_Joiners_Arrest.html) I did a little search, and I found dozens of stories about the tow company owner, yet I cannot find a single article on a threat to Tebow. SInce we have had an LSU fan talk about how it was happening, I will not deny it, but I wonder why this is not all over the news and ESPN. I found one article on ESPN.com. Really surprised it is not getting more air time, I wish it was.

You make a good point in my opinion. If this is true and I'm not saying it is or it isn't because I believe it to be true but if it is then why no story on it? This would have to be big big news in my opinon and should have been mentioned somewhere.

Not at all, some LSU fans condemned the criminal conduct outright, some continue to attempt to defend it, or lessen the severity of it. This is what I have issue with. As for my Christianity, that's between me and my Savior, my opinion on the criminal actions of some of the LSU fanbase, has very little to do with my righteousness, or lack thereof, in fact it's all about what Jesus did. :)

I wonder how long you're going to go on with this.

I have stated that the chants and the cell phone deal was wrong. What more do you want us to do? Bow before you and Tim and beg forgiveness?

Your salvation between you and Jesus Christ is between you and Christ. But I have seen your posts as you being very proud to be a Christian and futhermore...that you are a spiritual leader of sorts.

But your behavior here is for all to see and you do not own the opinions of those that see you act like this.

You can not control any fan base. Are you going to make us all good? You don't have that power.

When are you going to quit attempting to punish us here when we had nothing to do with the bad action.

I don't see you act this way toward the Florida fans who also issued death threats....why don't you razz them like you're doing us?

Gatorfans-

Are you really still crying over Tebow getting taunted and getting verbal threats over the phone? Why should he be defended by his cry-baby fans? Do you think he cares??? Do you think "Teabg Tebow" really keeps him up at night? Do you honestly think it hurt his feelings? Thats all I want to know. Do you REALLY think he fears for his life after getting those text messages and voicemails from LSU fans?? Hell no he don't, hell no he don't and hell no he dont. So why do you care? I know Gator fans think they are above everyone else (especially with the recent success) and to me it seems like you are trying to find some sort of consolation to fill your emotional void. So you choose to degrade the LSU fans in general because they said hurtful things to Milo's Tebow himself. Awwwww poor Timmy. "We are still better than you because your student sections said ugly things." BOO HOO. It's like you think that a UF fan has never said a bad word in the swamp. And they sure havent said it towards an opposing teams player... oh my, that would just be grounds for an exile from the stadium! Milo can handle himself. Get over it.


Btw, this is all based on the assumption that he was bawling his out out after the game because they lost, if he was crying because of the fans chanting mean words, I retract every statement I ever said about him, good or bad, and I will have a new (worse) opinion of him.

Why are you so obsessed with us Seminole? If we bother you so much, then dont come over here. You should have no interest in what SEC fans are saying Ķ especially Florida fans since all we do is cry all day long. So that proves what your real intent is Ķto hate on Florida as much as you can. Cheer for other teams who can do what your team cant. You offer no real insight on anything. Just like to name call. Overall you are just a useless poster.

If that is the case, then yes they are cry babies too... But for some reason I havent seen that, and I do know that everytime a player on the away team scores pretty much they do something to taunt the home crowd in the endzone. Heck, Chad Johnson jumped into the DawgPound... and they held on to him... a few others threw beer and trash on him at the same time, did he cry??? Did the fans cry??? Nope, Nope... So what makes it so bad for Tebow to do the phone dial thing? nothing, and like I said I am about 99% sure that LSU fans could care less. Jumping on the eye??? Thats the kinda stuff that taunts the other team and starts fights. Terrell Owens ring a bell??? Louisville-Miami? FSU-Miami? Like I posted earlier, Florida is lucky LSU wasnt out there when it was going on. OR they were scared and knew better to do that while LSU was still out there... who knows, but I would put my money on the latter of the 2.

And I have read LSUELOI's last post about 5 times now looking for this "rude response." Its not jumping out at me. :banghead:

What subject should we be on? The only one you want to talk about right? Our "mediocre" team and whiny fans? What am I wrong about?

LSUELOI is the one who wrote he responded rudely to me ... I'm just asking him what I did to make him respond like that?

Calling people names is rude.

I still want to know what a "bub" is?

Shoot if you can't get along with them, you'd really have trouble over at Gatorsports or Gatory country. They've actually had to tell me to chill out on many occassions. Give them a chance.

Its not about getting along with them, its just reading their defensive, whining, homeristic comments and excuses. Heck I am sure I would get along with them in person, it takes ALOT for me to not like someone. If I found a nice looking young lady with a great personality that enjoyed football as much as gatrobabe, I dont care if she IS a Florida fan, my girlfriend may be gettn the hook! :cheers:

Well that's nice, but I think the babe is married, so don't go giving anyone the hook. As for homerism, we all do it, including you. I just look at it as passion, and there's nothing wrong with passion, as long as you don't go making threatening phone calls. :rotf:

Used as a term of familiar address, especially for a man or boy: See you around, bub.

This is getting old let's start a new topic that is less polarizing...OJ is innocent and Hillary will be our next president.

I responded rudely b/c I was sick of the conversation plus I hate that commercial. If I ticked you off I didn't intend to I was more just trying to slightly ruffle feathers whilst making a "slightly" humorous "joke." All is forgotten I have eaten and now my blood sugar is at peace with the world.

Seminole6, I would worry about FSU if I were you. FSU could go 0-4 in November when you all have road games at Florida, VT and BC and have to host Maryland.

So you were calling me a boy/man? :cry: You are so mean.

That is very possible. Just depends on whether or not we continue to progress or hit a ceiling between now and then. Maryland doesnt worry me so much, but road games @ 3 top 20 teams does. BUT, not saying it is a good possibility because its probably about a 1% chance right now, if we win out, we could very well be in the NC hunt the way the top teams have been dropping like flies. But Im not gonna get into that, because I know as well as everyone else that the chances of that are slim to none.

If a team could sweep that November schedule it would deserve a NC shot. But the odds of being able to bring what it would take week after week at that level is probably too much to ask.

Nice and reasonable. :clap:

FSU is better than they looked to start the year, I'll give you that.

Trash talking comes with college football...that's half the stuff on these threads. It shoudn't ever get personal though.

Good post and I agree.

Ok when i was in highschool there was a tradition of taking our rival teams cannon and filling it with concrete and throwing it in the river. They would dredge the river and eventually get it back. So my question is this...Is it allright to fill up UGA or Smokey with concrete and chunk them in the river. I bet you'd be able to get them back, eventually.

Okay 6,

You lost to unranked wake by 3, we lost to #1 by 4. I guess you're done now.

You reap what you sow. Funny how that works, huh?

I don't think anyone will contest that the seminoles are not anywhere close to the team that they used to be.

Well, that's clear. Florida State finished #5 or better in the polls for 14 straight years. Never before and never again.

Playing in the ACC back in those days would make that possible.

True. Nonetheless, top five for fourteen consecutive years.... You've got to go back to Yale in the early days to find a run like that. FSU has been the greatest CF program of the 90's. (and, I'm glad they're down.. Losing to Louisville started the fall)

That definitely helped but the landscape of college football has changed now and I don't see a conference having just one good team like the ACC did back then. Sure, your lesser conferences like Conference USA might have one good team and the rest be crappy but that one good team will never be ranked in the top 5 for 14 straight years.
