Some news about Gator football

Florida Gators

  • Is Florida Field the loudest stadium in college football? I’d say yes. It’s actually louder than that. Think of the loudest noise you have ever heard. Now imagine that loudness, but just a little bit louder. Also, you’re screaming. And it’s very, very, very hot. And sweaty. Swampy, even. And the guy next to you is really, really drunk. Did I mention how hot is is? You can’t even hear me, and I’m standing right next to you. And we’re winning.
  • HeismanPundit has a great rant about offensive schemes in the NFL which includes several quotes from — of course — Urban Meyer and Steve Spurrier.
  • #15 and his eye-black messages are big hits on Google.
  • Since the SEC realignment in ’91, Florida is the only team in the league which has been to a bowl game each year and the only one which has never had a losing SEC record during that stretch.
  • Chris Rainey, on Riley Cooper, “I’m going to tell y’all like this, man, that’s the fastest white dude I’ve ever seen in my life. He is super fast. Oh my god.”
  • It was pretty cool that Jevon Kearse introduced himself as a graduate of “The Gator Nation” at the beginning of the first NFL game of the year, Thursday night’s Tennessee @ Pittsburgh game.

What Is This? is the personal weblog of me, David Vincent Gagne. I've been publishing here since 1999, which makes this one of the oldest continuously-updated websites on the Internet.

A few years ago I was trying to determine what cocktails I could make with the alcohol I had at home. I searched the App Store but couldn't find an app that would let me do that, so I built one.
