you could have added to number 16-and ended the coaching career of urbs at UF
And that's a first down!
The end of the "Cock Block" game was simply amazing and something I will never forget. I still get chills on it when I watch the youtube videos. You have the crowd going nuts before the kick, twice as loud as any stadium out there, then the ball is snapped and there is dead silence, and then two seconds later it erupts again, twice as loud as it had been before. It was only fitting that Jarvis Moss came up with it, after all he had been through and all that Urb had done to resurrect his career.
It is also fun to consider what would have happened had they not blocked that kick. They would not have made it to the NC and a Big 10 team would have won it instead of the SEC... Coud Urb still have closed out that recruiting class like he did? Assuming they still struggled in 2007 that would be 3 years with no championships and only 1 10 win season, so much pressure would be on Urb that 4th year and he would probably be on the hot seat, would he have made it through?
Love it, love it, love it. Thanks, Franz.
You could say that #5 was the game that didn't change history. That's because despite the incredible and exciting play and the 9-game season that followed, the idiotic powers that be still got rid of a terrific coach in Ray Graves (not to mention his assitant, Gene Ellinson) and brought Doug Dickey in to replace him.
Billy the Kid, age 48,
5 SEC Championships,
2 National Championships...
I think the Houston game in 1969 did shape history because it raised the expectations to such a high level only to see the disappointment, anger and frustration of bringing in Doug Dickey. Graves was loved and so was Ellenson. I never once felt that the Gator Nation really embraced Doug Dickey. Quite frankly, he was a hard guy to love. I got along with Doug well but never once got the real warm and fuzzies about him nor did the fan base. Booster support was never great while he was the HBC and it literally exploded under Charley Pell.
i think the beating we gave OSU should be on there we played our best game of the season hands down that night
never mind i see it is on there
