I have already revealed the true identity of LoF several times. I know his true identity to a substantial certainty.
First, I want to apologize to him for being so obsessed with trying to unmask him. Now that I can I don't want to.
We are all entitled to our anonymity, our handles, and our masks. The Good in them goes back to Silence Do- Gooder and Mark Twain. What we may call a troll could just as easily be considered a devils advocate, or foil.
I knew that LoF could be tounge and cheek with his posts. The one that really got me was when he let his gaurd down with the Ricky Natiel 'scrubs posts were insanely funny. At that time the LoF alter ego admitted that he was a gator that had joined the dark side of the force. A very cynical gator at that, but merely the loyal opposition of Gator policies. His Luke Skywalker/ Dr. Jeckell side is a very loyal Gator fan and attendee of The University of Florida.
I will criticize him for being a journalist who goes outside his job to control hires of the school. He vents his bitterness about Mac because he did not get his way when Mac was selected.
Harbaugh is great coach but he will win a Superbowl before he ever wins a NC.
If he had come here (he inerited far more talent on Mich.) we get raves from the "eye test" but no titles.
In recruiting maybe he keeps Cowart, but Cowart has been a bust.
Evaluating coaches by the fans expectations, even after schools throw the checkbook at these same coaches, is still unfair. Harbaugh cannot get away with the simple claim that he is "unlucky". Losing close games that he should win is becoming a pattern. He would not have won two divisional titles at Fla. either. He has won none at Michigan and last year the Big Ten sucked.
All coaches have problems.
This is a rebuilding year for him and we catch him in Dallas with a very experienced team that knows how to beat IOWA. We have won 28 strait openers. Mich. always starts a season slowly, and even lost one year to Appy State.
Harbaugh will not win a NC this year. He does not have any Calipari type one-and- done freshmen.
To quote Vince Lombardi "winning isn't everything, its the only thing." To paraphrase the proverbial "Charlie" of Tuna fish fame. The Gators don't need a coach that looks good; the Gators need a coach that wins!
They are getting nervous in Ann Arbor, whether that is fair or not.
