"Before you know it as the years go by, you're just like other people you have seen, with all those peculiar human ailments. Just another vehicle for temper and vanity and rashness and all the rest. Who wants it? Who needs it? These things occupy the place where a man's soul should be." -- Henderson the Rain King

The Mighty Gators

After storming to a 20 point lead in today's NCAA tourney game, the Gators fell apart down the stretch and barely held on to salvage a 5 point victory against Ohio. Still a victory is a victory. Next up is Villanova. On to the round of 32!

In other Gators news, our new head coach Urban Meyer appears to be whipping the boys into shape during spring drills, and he's turned out to be quite the quote machine as well. Some early quotes from him that I like:
"If I didn't give up bad language for Lent, I'd use some in there and let you know how excited I am." -- on starting spring practice
"I'm real excited but who cares what I think?" -- another one on starting spring practice
"I don't even know who you are, but if you run like that again, you're off the team." -- said to a player during warmup drills
"We can kind of paint it and say, 'Well this guy has potential; that guy has potential.' Well potential isn't a great word to use around our staff. It's what have you done?" -- on his concerns around the tailback position
"I hate to put the whole season on the tailback position, but I'm putting the whole season on the tailback position." -- on his concerns around the tailback position

I love the "I don't know who you are..." In my head it's some kid who was fetching the towels for the team and is, from now on, going to be on his toes whenever he runs refreshments to the staff and players...

Walsh is so freakin' streaky. As my friend Pete said "Live by the Walsh, die by the Walsh". Sigh.
