So what is this Year 2 thing?

This is a blog mainly about Gator football and college football in general. It was titled “Year 2” because it was started for Urban Meyer’s second year on the job and it’s a nice, catchy title. Florida won the national championship in year 2 under Meyer, Tim Tebow won the Heisman in his year 2, and now it’s year 2 after the national title.

While the original meaning of the title has expired, it will always be Year 2 of something.

Who are you?

I am Dave, a recent graduate UF with a BS and MS in Decision and Information Science (think business + computers). I put in three years in the Pride of the Sunshine (Gator marching band) and one in the basketball pep band. This Fall will be my nineteenth consecutive season of attending at least one Florida football game, and I’ve been told I’m a pretty good writer by some of my past English teachers.

    No doubt you are a Gator fan because only a gator fan would suggest that Tebow is the Heisman candidate over the top player in college football, Darren McFadden. And I’m not convinced Tebow is the best QB in college football. Chase Daniel is just as good a QB as Tebow, and given the differences in the offenses and the conferences they paly in, I’m not so sure Tebow would fare as well playing in the Big 12, and you have said nothing about Graham Harrell at Texas Tech. Speaking of the Big 12, it’s too bad freshmen aren’t truly considered for the Heisman because Sam Bradford is the best passer in college football. I was hoping Florida and Oklahoma would get the opportunity to match up against each other in a bowl game becasue not only would Oklahoma beat Florida, Sam Bradford would give a clinic against Tim Tebow. You will see Sam Bradford be the clear choice for the Heiwman next year and will also watch Oklahoma be ranked #1 from start to finish. Darren McFadden is the only choice for the Heisman Trophy and if Adrian Peterson hand’t been hurt last year, he would have ran away with it! Boomer Sooner!

    Not sure why you put this here. I’ll give you a hint though – people are much more likely to read what you write if you use paragraphs.

    Also, if you are unwilling to read what I write carefully, I’m not going to respond to what you write. I already showed that the SEC’s pass defenses are stiffer than the Big 12’s pass defenses.

    Also, I only compared Tebow and Daniel because they are the consensus top two candidates. There’s no reason for me to go into why Tebow is or isn’t better than anyone else.

    Great blog Dave; I’ve been lurking here for quite awhile and enjoy reading many of your entries and articles as they are intelligently written. This, along with Saurian Sagacity, is one of my favorite Gator blogs on the Web right now.

    Keep up the great work and GO GATORS!!!!!

    Thanks for the kind words, O-town! I grew up in Orlando, by the way.

    Hi, Dave,

    I want to make a comment, but I think it’d be better to do so via email, if you’d contact me.

    Thanks and best of luck

    Okay, so I know all you care about is Florida and the Gators. However, just for a minute, I thought you might want to know that there is now a Dave Wunderlich playing college football at Albion College in Michigan. He’s a 6’3″ wide receiver freshman. You might want to cast a northern eye toward Albion every now and then and check out your namesake.

    Wow – Another David Wunderlich. Too bad he’s not playing at UF!

    You’re still my favorite….
