Throwback Thursday: 1983, Florida vs. FSU

Hey, Gator fans: having trouble with FSU fans who just won’t stop repeating “37-7″ like a broken record? Here’s your answer.

The video of this game provides a window into the past for young people (even younger than myself) into this rivalry, and proves that the Florida-FSU rivalry goes back and forth. Both teams have their good years and their bad years, and if the mid 00′s weren’t a good enough reminder of that, maybe this is. FSU’s up right now, but they’ve never beaten Florida quite like this.

So enjoy. And remember, as Gator fans, we will enjoy beatings like this again someday.

Big Play WR Kalif Jackson Commits To Florida

A big problem for recent Gator offenses is that they just don’t have that tall playmaker who can really climb the ladder and make the play for you.

Well, now they do. At least verbally.

Meet Kalif Jackson, a 6’5 receiver from Jacksonville who’s built more like a tight end. He could be a huge red zone threat for the Gators, and appears to be a great fit for Kurt Roper’s new offense as the dependable fate route target.

Despite losing several commits over the past week or so, Florida’s starting to gain them back. Jackson’s first, and watch out for a few more to come in the ensuing days and weeks.
