Great Day 4 Gator Nation

Seriously, usually root for Florida teams in games against outsiders.  The state of Florida should rule over all college football.

So I watched the Florida State vs Oregon and rooted as long as humanly possible: until perhaps 3 minutes left in 1st half after seeing the epic Winston fumble and gift TD to the ducks.  Although this fumble will show on blooper reels until the end of time, the most heinous and despicable acts ever: yelling at his coach.

To recap, "Famous" had dropped back to pass, dodged right, scrambled out of control to the left, ignored chance to run for first down, lumbered right into teeth of the rush, and tried to throw the ball while falling on his butt, and served up fumble with Oregon player flying for a touchdown, quite possibly the single worst play ever by a quarterback ever.

Afterwards w/ "Famous" on sideline and Coach Dumbo Fisher try in to explain 1 of the obvious points of the game--like hold onto the ball, son--and "Infamous" Winston yelled back.

Back in my day, a qb would cower in fear and flee from a coach after such a play.  Yelling back risked getting your facemak grabbed and pulled so close the coach's spittle would explode on you and the dread slap to the helmet would concuss you.

Instead, "Famous" stood toe to toe with his coach, Jumbo Loser, and yelled back at him.

While generally opposing violence by coaches directed toward players, my soul yearned to see a clipboard rap the player's earhole on his helmet, which would leavehis ears ringing for a week.

That'd learn him some discipline!

Of course, it felt good to see FSU smoked!
