Still Rebuilding

Great article from The Athletic’s Manny Navarro: Florida signees say Class of 2024 deserters will become 'Gator bait'

I’ll be honest: I have never liked the term “Gator bait” and always felt it was a little trashy. But I do approve of the loyalty exhibited by the kids who are sticking with their commitments despite the milquetoast record, questionable administrative choices, lackluster performances, and miserable coaching of the last fifteen years. As someone who was in Gainesville for the Spurrier years, it’s been really, really rough to watch this program’s depressing decline since 2009. (The phantom successes of 2012, 2015, and 2019 were almost more painful than the losing seasons tossed in there.)
