So…how far have the once mighty Florida Gators fallen?
Wasn't it just yesterday when Tim Tebow was leading the Urban Meyer run Gators to a National Title?
Well, to the Florida faithful, that probably seems like a century ago. Especially in light of Saturday afternoon's 34-17 loss to Vanderbilt. In Gainesville. And it was the first time Vandy's won in the Swamp…since 1945.
Mind you, Vandy is not bad. 5-4 on the season and 2-4 in the SEC East, they are not the pushovers of Vandy teams past.
But this loss was about Florida ineptitude as much as was Vandy capitalizing on it. The Gators had 4 turnovers and only 39 yards running the ball.
The loss dropped the toothless Gators to 4-5 on the season and 3-4 in the SEC East. It also probably lowers the chance they make a bowl game. Aside from a game with Georgia Southern, the Gators finish with South Carolina and Florida State, neither game, one likely they'll win.
And the loss has raised the volume on people...
BEST OF MAXIM
The 2013 football season has not been kind to the Florida Gators. This past weekend, Florida dropped to 4-5 by losing 34-17 to Vanderbilt at home, and it’s safe to say that the boo birds are coming out. Fans are obviously not happy with the recent results on the field, and now many are starting to call for Will Muschamp’s head. Tonight, an interesting sign made its way to Bull...
The Florida Gators need desperately to get back on track Saturday. Mired in a three game losing streak and an offense that looks headed backwards, the Gators are a stark contrast from a year ago when they only had one loss and were looking for a premium bowl bid. The Gators now are just reaching to be bowl eligible. here is a quick breakdown of the game and match ups.
It's officially basketball season in Gainesville. For the fans who haven't gotten into the mood quite yet, this 2013-14 Florida Gators hype video should do the trick.
The Florida Gators were embarrassed on their home field on Saturday by a Vanderbilt team that had not won a game in Gainesville since 1945. The 34-17 loss was probably the lowest point of the season for Will Muschamp’s team, but freshman wide receiver Ahmad Fulwood did provide Florida fans with one incredible highlight in […]
The Florida Gators lost yet another offensive lineman this week. Now they’re even getting hurt off the field. Offensive tackle Tyler Moore suffered a compound fracture in his right elbow which required surgery.
Moore crashed his scooter Tuesday night on the way home from practice and his season is over. (I’m having trouble picturing someone his size on a scooter)
It’s been a disappointing year in Gainesville, as Florida’s 34-17 loss to Vanderbilt likely means the Gators will be home for the bowl...

Florida Gators wide receiver Ahmad Fullwood made a circus-style touchdown catch against the Vanderbilt Commodores on Saturday.
The Gators were on the negative end of history on Saturday. Vanderbilt ended a 22-game losing streak to Florida and won its first game in Gainesville since 1945. Four turnovers proved to be the undoing for a Florida team that doesn’t have the margin of error to get around them. The Gators handed Vanderbilt ideal field position through the 34-17 loss.
Tyler Murphy's four turnovers led to three touchdowns, helping Vanderbilt embarrass Florida 34-17 Saturday for the program's first win in Gainesville since 1945. The Commodores snapped a 22-game losing streak in the lopsided series and moved a step closer to becoming bowl eligible for the third consecutive season under coach James Franklin.
It’s that time of the year again. That’s right. Florida Gators Basketball is back, though it didn’t completely begin as planned.
Billy Donovan couldn’t exactly be described as a happy camper after the game:
We are light years away from even being a remotely good defensive team right now and light years away from even being a ranked team.
Donovan has plenty...
