    9 out of 10...I'm going to have to bet my house, car, wife, dog, kid, left kidney, and all future earnings on the under on that one!

    That's always the problem with an object shaped like a football. You can tell where a soccer ball is going. In this case, the second the ball hit on its point, it bounced back into the kicker. It wasn't his fault...

    Sure. Everyone else does. It's really a team effort, although we're now missing a huge part of the team...

    Maybe one day the fan base as a whole will mature, but for right now, they seem to think being passionate about your team is defined by incredibly immature and rude behavior.

    Even if they had made that late 45 yarder they missed, that would still have put them up by only six points, with time on the clock...

    That cartoon character was bad to talk reasonably while here but really ripping us when he got on his board.

    Friendly and LSU lurker are nearly antonyms.

    I do like using lurker. A seedy LSU lurker enviously watching from the shadows.

    There is a truly unhealthy hatred of Nick Saban and Alabama going on with them. I don't understand it. Florida fans have never acted towards Spurrier this way, despite the fact that he took over a division rival. I'm sure it has a lot to do with Saban's dominance here. But holding on to all that poison isn't a good thing for that fanbase.
