FRZ Editor's Note 1-1-2004

Since has been taken down I thought it would be appropriate to post as much material from that site here as possible. The posts are dated by original publication date.


If you're a Gator fan, then you must be thinking what I'm thinking..."what the hell has happened to my football team??!!"

This is what happens when you have a great college recruiter trying to go outside his span of skills and be a head coach. I listened to the announcers at the Outback bowl talk about Zook's recruiting abilities and I can't disagree, he's a great recruiter...but he IS NOT A HEAD COACH.

Did you hear the announcers on New Year's Day? Are you embarrassed at our program, or are you simply deaf? Does it make any sense that we have some of the top athletes in the entire nation, and can only manage to go 8-5...two seasons in a row???!!!

Some people are saying that 8-5 is an accomplishment. Splendid. I hear the words "he turned around what could have been a terrible season." Sensational. Guess what folks...he did not turn around sh*t! The "players only" meeting is what got these kids asses in gear...Zook had nothing to do with it! He put them in the situation to begin with by starting them out at 3-3 and THEY had the wherewithall to stand up and say they weren't going to let this happen to them. But they're athletes...not superheroes. And they could only hold things together for so long until Zook came back in and found a way to waste some more of the "full cupboard" of talent he has recruited.

Don't put up with it anymore. Speak out and speak loud. Call Foley every day and email him twice a day. Zook has got to go if we have any chance of recovering and seeing the Gators play football with pride and swagger.
