Daily Headlines: Nostradamus? Nope, that’s just Urban Meyer

Why don’t we leave the prognosticating to the overpaid, under performing T.V. talking heads?

UF coach Urban Meyer went on record as saying there is no way his team suffers a letdown against Vanderbilt in Nashville Saturday.

Letdowns never happen in college football.

Seriously I can’t think of 1,501 example in the last few seasons. I mean, Southern Cal always handles its inferior competition in the Pac 10, and West Virginia dominates its competition year after year, thanks to a light schedule.

And I don’t know why these Division I schools keep scheduling FCS football teams, it’s not like they even have a shot of pulling off the upset of the century.

Maybe Meyer’s Gators are just different. When’s the last time an upset was pulled off against a team wearing Orange and Blue?

Urb should know better than most that, sometimes, a team is most dangerous when it’s given no chance to win.

Maybe he should give his good friend Bill Belichick a call, I’m sure he’d be willing to give Meyer a lesson in upset-aversion over some humble pie.


Did Jonathan Phillips learn nothing from Randy Shannon?

It’s not nice to run up the score with late-game field goals. But, if it were up to Phillips, the senior would have trotted onto the field for the last play of the beat down Florida put on Georgia. Sure it would have been a ridiculous 72-yard attempt, but doesn’t that make a point better than two meaningless time outs?


The Gators took the leap into the post-Jai Lucas era in Gainesville Thursday.

Florida downed Rollins College 82-53 in its second preseason game. Sophomore Nick Calathes led the team with 16 points and six assists while taking on the brunt of the point guard duties.

For the record, Chomped and Screwed would like to add Maryland to the list of possible new homes for Lucas at the end of the semester. John Lucas Jr., his father, played in College Park (where they chop cars) and the Terps were on Jai’s short list before eventually signing with the Gators.
