The big catch was just a few inches shy of setting a state record - the largest alligator ever captured in Florida was 14-foot 3 1/2 inches.

orange 'n green in the vein

I drive by this place every time on the way there and back for games.

Every. Single. Time.

And have never stopped, but continue to threaten to next time. 'Zilla, it is the middle of nowhere and nowhere is close to it either.

Now I'm stopping on Friday and leaving a half hour earlier to compensate, usually I just stop at John Stretch park instead and walk around for 15 minutes to refresh but this time I'm going in. I swear.

With that, I've got a homemade trailer and a bass boat to register these next two days and so I'm probably not going to have time to post until I hit town Friday afternoon, so like Bob Ross always said, take care of yourself, and each other.

The Dude

Fish Eating Creek is right down the road for some good fishing. Loads of blue gill and bass. I used to camp there all the time. Go Canes, beat the turds.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Real estate magnate and Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross plans to give $200 million to the University of Michigan for its business school and athletics programs. THERE GOES STADIUM UPGRADES TO SUN LIFE

Gators, beware.

Randy “Duke” Johnson’s favorite person in the world, his mother, asked him for a special favor just before the season started.

“I said, ‘Mama doesn’t want to put extra pressure on you,’ ” Cassandra Prophet Mitchell recalled, “ ‘but I really want to beat the Gators and Florida State this year. And we owe Virginia, because that game you had won — and for them to come steal it at the last minute …’ ”

Johnson, the No. 1 rusher in the nation after last week’s 186-yard performance against Florida Atlantic, barely needed a moment to respond.

“He said, ‘I got you, big dog!’ ” said Mitchell, not an ounce of doubt in her voice.

Johnson, at 19 still a teenager with an impish smile and soft-spoken demeanor, is a full-grown terror to most defenses.

Last week he led the country with his 19 carries for 186 yards and a touchdown — a 9.8-yard-per-carry average. He also took down two opponents on a block that enabled Herb Waters to run a 63-yard reverse for a touchdown in UM’s opening victory.

Florida on Saturday, however, will be another challenge altogether. Be assured the No. 12 Gators (1-0), who held Toledo in their season opener to 50 yards rushing, are game-planning for Miami’s 5-9, 196-pound sophomore on cruise control.

Starting middle linebacker Antonio Morrison, named to the 2012 Southeastern Conference Coaches’ All-Freshman Team, was suspended for the Toledo game but will be back Saturday. That likely gives Florida coach Will Muschamp only so much solace.

Cracking the Top 25 USA Today Coaches poll might not mean a whole lot to Miami Hurricanes players, but it does count for something in the Al Golden era.

It's the first time Miami is ranked under his leadership.

You might not remember this, but it took Randy Shannon a little less time (10th week of his second season) to crack the Top 25. Golden obviously had a lot more on his plate than Shannon did with the NCAA probe dangling overhead from the start.

Miami fell out of the AP Top 25 under Shannon after just one week by losing to Georgia Tech 41-23 on the road. The following season, Miami began the season unranked, but opened with a 38-34 win over Florida State to get into the Top 25 poll. Then the Canes beat 14th-ranked Georgia Tech 33-17 and climbed all the way up into the Top 10 (No. 9) before losing 31-7 at Virginia Tech the following week. Those 2009 Hurricanes, however, finished 9-4 and remained in the Top 25 poll the rest of the season.

If Miami loses to Florida Saturday, the Canes would likely slip out of the poll. Golden, 2-3 against his first five ranked opponents (Shannon was too to start his career), gets the Gators (9th in USA Today, 12th in AP) this week.

Opportunity for a signature win? Absolutely. If you think about it, Miami really hasn't had one yet under Golden. The 17-ranked Ohio State Buckeyes they beat in 2011 finished 6-7. The 22nd-ranked Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets finished 8-5. Beating these Gators would definitely elevate Golden and Miami's status, show recruits the program really is on an upward climb.

"It's obviously a big game, but the biggest thing for us is to focus on what we can control," Golden said when asked if this game might serve as a benchmark. "Everything else that surrounds it, we have no impact on."

BUSH STILL FEELING DISCOMFORT IN GROIN

Sophomore safety Deon Bush started six games for Miami last season as a true freshman. We still aren't sure if and when he'll start another.

Bush, who had sports hernia surgery this summer, told me he still feels discomfort and hasn't been completely cleared yet to play in a game even though he's wearing a green "full-go" jersey and practicing.

"I'm getting there. I'm working each day to improve, working with the trainer. The trainer is doing a great job," Bush said.

When will you be ready?

"When I'm able to go out there and perform at a good level," he said. "I don't want to go out there in the game if I'm not 100 percent healthy."

Do you expect to be back this season? Could you redshirt?

"That's not part of the plan," Bush said. "I definitely should [be back]."

> Quarterback Stephen Morris earned this week's quote of the week. Told Miami had just missed out on making it into the AP Top 25, Morris said: "I could give two you know whats about it. My focus is I have to get the locker room ready … what we have to do on Saturday."

Braxton Berrios has become a very popular individual in the Twitterverse. With almost 8,000 followers on his account (@HNYNUT_BERRIOS), Braxton deals with fans from multiple schools urging him to attend the program of their choice. The speedy slot receiver discussed what these messages mean to him.

“It’s definitely different. It’s cool in a way and then it can get old and annoying. I know it’s only going to happen once though so I try to take a step back because I don’t want to take it for granted. Some of them make you think, but I try to take it as what it is and not think to much about it,” said Berrios.

Berrios has amassed 271 rushing yards, 7 total touchdowns, and 2 interceptions on defense in his first two games of the season. Because of his team’s dominance, he hasn’t been needed to play the entire game.

“Sometimes it happens. If I’m sitting out in the second half, we’re winning big. That means we’re doing well as a team and really getting other players ready to play. You go into games wanting to play the entire game because I love football, but if we go into the second half of the state championship game and I’m not playing, that means we’re winning which is what matters.”

Berrios made his first official visit to Oregon this past weekend. The Ducks are a program that recently offered Braxton.

“It was good. It was my first time being out there at the university and it was different just being out there with the landscape and all that. I don’t know, it’s just a culture shock anytime you go from east coast to west coast, but I liked different things. Everyone knows the football facilities speak for themselves so it was cool being able to walk through it and not just seeing it in a video. It was a great visit and great to see what it would be like to go there. It gave me some things to think about, not necessarily good or bad.”

The versatile athlete was down in Miami for a camp in June, so what is he looking forward to seeing this time around?

“The new football facility is finally done so that will be cool to see. Being able to walk through campus and see everybody will be nice because I’m getting down there Friday morning. Seeing a game will be awesome. I never got to see a game in the Orange Bowl or a home game, especially in their stadium now so that will be a new experience. I can’t wait.”

After Berrios camped at Miami, there was a timeframe of uncertainty about whether or not the ‘Canes would offer. He has been reassured that the coaching staff truly wants him in a Miami uniform.

The long-awaited debut of Demetrius Jackson in a Booker T. Washington football uniform took place a couple Saturdays ago, and he did not disappoint. Jackson was extremely active and helped his team shut-out nationally ranked Norcross 55-0.

“It was exciting and especially because it was on ESPN. We had to take care of business and it felt great doing it in front of the entire nation,” said Jackson.

The Tornadoes were confident heading into the game, but did they really think they could shut Norcross out?

“Honestly, yes. We go against the best offense in the country (in practice) with Treon Harris at quarterback and Mark (Walton) at running back with Krondis Larry. If we can give Treon trouble, we can give anyone trouble. We want the state record of 11 shutouts in a season.”

The pass-rushing tandem of Jackson and fellow Miami commit Chad Thomas was on display in the opener.

“We complement each other very well because he’s very strong and fast and I’m getting my strength up which is scary because I’m fast too. It’s fun and amazing how much we grow each week.”

Many are calling this week’s showdown against Central a potential national championship game. Jackson talked about what his team needs to do to win.

“The game is already won. We just need to go out there and execute. We shut down the run and they’ll have to go to the pass where the secondary will take care of business. It’s gotta be 48 minutes of pain and we can’t take our foot off the gas.”

Booker T.’s pundits are saying Central’s lines are too big for the Tornadoes to handle.

The 10 worst Gator fans, and how to mess with them

The Florida Gators have grudgingly agreed to come to Miami and play a non-conference game on Saturday against a team that people have actually heard of, which means not only will that guy from your office with the UF fight song as his ringtone be especially annoying this week, but now you’ll have to deal with a whole city of him. And since trying to reason with a Gator fan is like trying to explain physics to a... uh, well, a Gator fan, here’s our guide to the 10 worst you’ll find, and how to make their heads explode.

1. Completely Unknowledgeable Undergrad Female Super Fan

Please control your hands-on-cheek, super-serious breath-holding face before big plays, and stop openly crying every time the refs call a false start penalty. That face tattoo is gonna run all over your tank top.

How to mess with her: Ask her to name five players on defense, or explain what a false-start penalty is.

2. Vicarious SEC Winning Fan

“A&M’s beating Sam Houston State!! S-E-C! S-E-C! S-E-C!” Like if they yell loud enough somehow the South will rise again.

How to mess with him: Ask him to explain the transitive property by which Auburn beating Washington State makes the Gators #11, when beating WSU barely makes you #11 in the Pac 12.

3. UF Should Be In The Ivy League Fan

Being the best public school in Florida is kinda like being the smartest kid to get detention for eating paste. That whopping 54th place in US News & World Report puts you 37 spots behind Vandy, and nine ahead of academic-powerhouse Georgia.

How to mess with him: Tell him UF was your safety school.

4. Gator Frat Star Fan

His tailgates aren’t so much about football as they are an excuse for him and his boys to take their shirts off. Sorry, but using steroids doesn’t make you a football player, bro.

How to mess with him: Hand him a plastic surgery brochure touting calf implants, pat him on the back, and say, “Just looking out for you, pal.”

5. Tebow Jersey Fan

The only item in his wardrobe not purchased from Walmart is that $375 commemorative number he bought back in '08. He’ll be wearing it well into 2030.

How to mess with him: Ask if he’s gonna be getting one for the Saskatchewan Roughriders.

6. Overly Knowledgeable Female Fan

Just because you were “friends” with half the team during your glory years does not make knowing the yards per carry of your backup fullback any less weird. It’s like a guy knowing about Prada bags.

How to mess with her: Answer everything she says with “Whatever. You’re a girl. You don’t know football.”

7. Racist Gator Fan Who Hates Miami

According to him, Miami is a cesspool full of filth, crime, and Mexicans, a position based entirely on that one time in 1998 he drove through on his way to a NASCAR event.

How to mess with him: Mid-rant, tilt your head, blink your eyes and say, “Ehhhhh……Espanish?”

8. Jorts-Wearing Redneck Fan

UM actually has jorts wearers too, though they typically come from Europe and have their countries’ Prime Ministers on speed dial. UF’s come from towns that don’t appear on maps.

How to mess with him: Ask if he’s ever tried dipping, chewing, AND smoking at the same time.

9. Faux-Former Gator Player-Turned-Fan

Girls state-wide will tell you: Every black dude in the state of Florida played for UF at some point. Funny, since 10yrs ago they all played for UM.

How to mess with him: Pull up a media guide from the years he “played” on your phone and listen to the excuses.

10. Ryan Lochte

The best cautionary tale to anyone who wants to stay in Gainesville after graduation is a guy who’s the second best in the world at something and can’t parlay it into much more than a show on E!

How to mess with him: Keep asking about Michael Phelps.

A girl I know posted on my Facebook last Saturday that "Watching the Clemson/UGA game it's obvious that the SEC has the best defenses in college football!" I told her that Clemson plays in the ACC then she replied "Really? I thought they were in the SEC."

A girl at work had a Gator logo on her desk. I said I can't wait for Sep 7 to which she asked "why"? I looked at her and said that's when UF plays UM @ Sunlife. She said I must be mistaken, "UF plays in the SEC!"

They're out there...everywhere!!!

Go 'canes!!

The Dude

Golden on SVP ESPN Radio in 5 min.

CaneRock

Tommy Streeter signed to Bills practice squad, and Chase Ford signed to Vikings practice squad.

Hope they stick and make their respective rosters.

The Dude

Golden basically acknowledge that this weekend is the biggest game of his career, but that he doesn't go to sleep thinking about that.

UMike

Looks like scattered thunderstorms Saturday...

The Dude

Hopefully that doesn't ground the passing game for both teams. That's our biggest advantage.

UMike

I am in section 456..I know it is in the middle of one of the end zones..but does anyone know if that is the end zone with the helmet? it is not the family section, its the other side of the stadium
