Throwback Thursday 


Go Gators! This throwback picture is from  2013, in Gainesville, FL at the University of Florida. I can’t remember what game it was, but I do know I had fun! I was there with my hubby, Bryan and some college buddies too! I’ll keep their names secret. UF rocks at throwing great tailgating parties, but getting to go to the game is the biggest thrill of all! Too bad we didn’t have tickets to that game, but that just meant more grilling out and beer for us! I was always taught that there’s a time and place for everything………….. And it’s COLLEGE!!!!


Florida Gators vs. Missouri Tigers – 10/10


Go Gators!!! Today the Gators play Missouri at Missouri at 7:30. The Gators were beat pretty badly last year, let’s hope we can destroy them this year! The Gator’s are ranked #11. I wonder where we’ll rank after tonight’s big “W“???



UF vs. E. Carolina


Gators v Pirates
“The AAC’s East Carolina Pirates will head to Legion Field this Saturday to tangle with the SEC’s Florida Gators in this season’s Birmingham Bowl. Kickoff is slated for noon (ET), and the game will be broadcast nationally on ESPN.”


“Florida’s shaky 6-5 record (both SU and ATS) cost former head coach Will Muschamp his job, but the Gators came very close to knocking off Florida State in their season finale in a 24-19 loss as seven-point road underdogs. They ended the year by covering in four of their final five games, and the total went over in three of those contests.”



Florida Gators Dominated New Mexico St. Aggie’s


Orange and Blue!!!  
The first offensive series of the Jim McElwain era wasn’t very good. But tonight was the Gator’s 1st NCAA home-game, in Gainesville, Florida, and they looked as good as they played. They started out strong, and offense was did a great job of getting the ball in the endzone. Both quarterbacks, #7 Grier and #3 Harris, did equally well, and both scored touchdowns. The Aggie’s were not so together as a whole, compared to Florida.

New Mexico State got on the board late in the second period when Grier’s second possession ended with a sack by linebacker Terrill Hanks that forced the UF quarterback to fumble the ball away at his own 20. The Aggies scored six plays later on an 8-yard run by tailback Larry Rose III. 

By the fourth quarter, the score was 61 Gator’s, 13 New Mexico St. But there would be no more TD’s after that. What a great game. It was the first Florida game that I have been proud of in quite some time. My Alma Mater is coming back strong. Go Gators!!! Go Orange and Blue!!! I foresee this 2015 season going very well. 



6 Days Until Gator Football!


Are you ready?


The Will Muschamp era is over at Florida and first-year head coach Jim McElwain hopes to get the Gators back to the SEC Championship Game with a revitalized offense.

McElwain has stated over and over that lots of work needs to be done before the Gators are ready for the upcoming season. What can we look forward to from Florida in 2015?

Florida hired Jim McElwain from Colorado State to revive its beleaguered attack. Unlike former coach Will Muschamp, McElwain has an offensive background. All eyes will be on his decision between quarterbacks Will Grier and Treon Harris. As a freshman in 2014, Harris’ dual-threat abilities helped him go 4–2 as a starter. Grier, who redshirted last year, is a pocket passer better suited to McElwain’s scheme, which favors high-percentage throws with some vertical passes off play-action mixed in. But Harris’s running ability could be invaluable behind an inexperienced offensive line.


Muschamp’s failure to identify an offensive coordinator or quarterback doomed him, leaving McElwain with a program that won just 11 games the past two seasons. The 53-year-old immediately set out to upgrade Florida’s offensive talent and address lagging facilities. Faced with a massive rebuild, McElwain will need time to field an SEC East contender at a school where championships were once the standard.



Upon Further Review: Florida Gators Eke Out 28th Consecutive Victory Over Kentucky

Every week during the football season, Swamp Music will provide insight and analysis after reviewing the previous day’s game. Florida opened its SEC schedule on Saturday in the Swamp versus Kentucky and needed 3 overtimes to dispatch a spirited, talented, and determined Wildcat team looking to end their 27 game losing streak to Florida.

Jeff Driskel played a good game.

While fans continued their calls for Driskel’s benching during and after the game, upon further review, those calls might be misplaced.

First, Treon Harris will not see anything more than mop up duty this season barring injury to Jeff. The Gators offensive hopes are pinned to Jeff Driskel this season period. Not to say that Harris won’t eventually be the guy, but as a true freshman he’s far too green to expect him…
