Ten months ago, most expected that when Florida and Florida State met, former Lakewood High star defensive end Dante Fowler would line up for the Seminoles.
Instead, when they play Saturday in Tallahassee, Fowler will wear a Gator uniform. He orally committed to the Seminoles early, but as national signing day approached, he began to have a change of heart. On Feb. 1, he signed with the Gators.
It has worked out extremely well for both Fowler and Florida.
The freshman has played in all 11 games, including one start, and made a strong contribution that has impressed teammates.

I really don't like this kid. Like he has got to be number 1 on my crap list. I especially hate how I'm going to have to coninue to hear about him until he either gets kicked out or graduates. I'm thinking the first option is more likely.
He would not be thriving here because we are a lot better a de than they are right now
I hope we look to take him out. You can't let someone disrespect you like he did to us! I'd take a 15 yard penalty to knock him out of the game.
I hope Erving and Matias double team him and put him on his back. And if he lines up against Watson , I hope he mauls him.
But I would advise him to stop tweeting, how he has had this game circle on his calender, since the beginning of the year. Remember you ditch us, not the other way around.
Sorry Dante no hard feelings, well maybe just a little.
Forget that kid
He's a bitch. And a stupid one. Got played by some punk nobody writer for gator country. Ef him.

Completely hard feelings. I want him to get Harvin'd.
Wishing physical harm on a kid, are we? Keeping it classy over here on Unconquered, I see
Yeah Gate, That was uncalled for. Other than that our board can and should rip the kid. Fowler is not quite to "Pouncy" douche level, but close.
He's not a minor, first of all. Second, with the way he played the recruiting game? Fowler deserves zero respect. Don't want him permanently or gravely injured, but I do want a message sent to him that the Noles hate him and he made a bad decision.
Yes, I stand by my comment. I want to see him knocked out of the game because I think that is what it would take for him to get the message. I want to see him hit hard. Completely legally, though. I am not asking for a cheap shot.
Back in the day, you could call it "getting your bell rung."

Dante who? Never heard of him.

Karma's a bitch. He'll find it in Doak this year.
Oh, and Gate fans, give him time... he'll implode... he has everywhere else he's been. We'll be watching with the popcorn.

How he went about making his decision and smirked about now he "played" FSU, was unconscionable to put it kindly. He went public with it and disrespected our program and coaches for all to see. Sooooooooo where I come from, we sweep the leg with impunity, and see how he deals with that from his newly acquired 'mature' perspective.
Well, at least one of you has some sense and a touch of class. You have my commendations sir
Just look at the comments, this board has zero class. Never has, never will
Bwhahahahahaha... oh the irony.... let me just say I recall many, many Gator fans saying just as bad stuff about Wilder, Jernigan, and Waisome... have a wonderful thanksgiving
The kid is a douche, and I would enjoy seeing his bell rung (legally), but I don't wish any permanent harm. I don't need to wish that, he'll be gone long before it matters. He treated his recruitment as a child would, and he'll be just as devious and selfish in college. Frankly, you'll be lucky if you get rid of him sooner rather than later.
And, if it's possible for you to be realistic from your high-horse, how exactly do you think your board would regard someone who proclaimed UF allegiance for over a year, flipped on NSD and then tweeted that he played UF? I'm sure your entire fanbase would be totally classy - definitely classy - no hard feelings, right? Right....
Also, GTFO here with this BS. Ignorant comments like this what makes us look down on you guys. If you want to make people recognize an out of line comment, simply say: I don't think we should ever wish injury on a kid, happy thanksgiving.
I suppose that's too much to ask, and I will enjoy the heartbreak your fanbase gets this Saturday. I hope you enjoyed 10 wins, that's all you're getting for the next month. You're going to suffer a beatdown on Saturday, and then you'll be idle while the real football programs play for championships - both of your rivals. Is it still a good season when you lose to both rivals and don't even play for your division? I know I never enjoyed that outcome, but maybe I have higher expectations. After losing to us for the past 2 years, I guess you might be used to settling for less.

I don't have anything against Folwer for choosing UF. I don't like Fowler because he handled things in a classless manner and it really screwed FSU. Of course the Gators loved this, but if the shoe was on the other foot you guys would feel the exact same.
Oh how ironic coming from you
Gator fans talking about class...that's the definition of irony. The jean short nation is the epitome of trash. You gates need to STFU and stop embarrassing yourselves.
And yet you feel the need to post on said board, outstanding...
A turd telling us we have no class. The school with the fan base voted one of the most classless (if not THE most classless) in all of college football?
Yes, we hope Fowler has a very rough time on Saturday! He's a turd and acted like a turd..just like the classless Pouncys.
Then don't come here. This is a Florida State forum. You're the one thats stupid and lame enough to come over here to read. GTFO.
And your douchebag ass is the most classless gate poster over here...stfu and get off our board, how has this moron not been banned from here with all his posts?
Water is just beer that hasn't reached its full potential.
