It seems the tables have turned. Now they're eating us.

I think it's the drug cartels' preferred method of disposal.

Heck, last year a burglar who got spooked ran and hid in a lake 
where he was killed by a Florida gator. Look it up!

Gators are about crime prevention. Laughing

And, clean up.

When I saw the heading of the thread, "Florida Gators Eating People,"
I thought you were referring to a college football team

No... 

These are Floridians... University of Central Florida Knights! 
The second largest campus in the United States with more than 
60 thousand students.

We have been feeding gators more for decades!

The "University" of Central Florida is a joke. Most students have never seen the campus. Courses are mainly online and ~80% of the 'teachers' are grad students. My daughter went there and they assigned a sophomore student to her as her "faculty advisor". She had 40 more class hours than he did. The head of her department could not be reached in person, only by email.

Everyone in Florida knows that "UCF" stands for "U Can't Finish."  No

PS: They also have a terrible football team. A bar close to campus gives away free drinks if they win a game. They haven't had to pay up in quite a while.

This is THE University in Florida.

Mascots Knightro and Pegasus ride onto the field

Obviously, you have never tried to park on campus... 
There seem to be more than enough students. Too 
many, in fact. 

Oh, look! Students!


Knightro rallies the troops

I have never taken a class there. I know many who have. 
My experience is indirect. But, I know a lot of happy graduates 
who might disagree with your assessment. And, I met the UCF 
Gun Club at the range the other day.

Oh, look! Graduating students!


Family, students, and faculty at a graduation ceremony

But, you are right about last year's football team. We fired 
the coach and have a new one from Oregon. But, the year 
before that, we won the Fiesta Bowl. 

Look! Somebody (students maybe?) seem to be in those stands. Laughing



Here is our 2013 AAC Conf Championship Trophy 



Go Knights!

cheers cheers cheers cheers cheers cheers cheers cheers cheers cheers cheers cheers cheers cheers cheers cheers

FYI
UCF was ranked as one of the nation’s “Most Innovative” universities in the U.S. News & World Report’s Best Colleges 2016 guide rankings. Last year, Kiplinger’s and The Princeton Review ranked UCF as one of the nation’s best values for a college education. The Carnegie Foundation has classified UCF as an R1 Doctoral University with the highest research activity and community engagement.

  • Difficult to get in (49.6% acceptance rate)

  • Very Competitive average SAT (1745)

  • Highly competitive entering class (mostly 3.75 or above high school GPA)

The school has changed and grown a lot since it's days as a Florida Technical University with this mascot... 

I give you Astro the Citronaut




This next shot is more reflective of today...


The UCF Student Union

So, a fellow in Orlando dies and finds himself sitting naked on a rock in a hot, sulfury smelly place.

A strange looking being with horns and a long green tail comes up to him and asks "Hot enough for you down here?" The Orlando man wipes his forehead and says: "Just like mid-April in Orlando."

The devil is disturbed by this comment and heads to physical plant. There, he turns up the heat.
"What do you think of the temperature, now?"
The guy mutters "Mid-June, Orlando."

The Devil is really frustrated, so he turns the heat up again in physical plant.
Again he asks the man about the heat and the fellow says: "Mid August, Orlando."
The Devil is beside himself and decides to teach this guy about discomfort, so he goes to physical plant, turns the heat off and the air conditioning up as far as he can.
He goes back to the man on the rock and asks: "Whattya think of the temperature, now?"
The guy, shivering and shaking, says: "University of Central Florida must have won a football game."

2013 was a good year, I think. scratch  History is good, current events is better.  2015 UCF football results = 0 wins, 12 losses. Any team that can't beat Furman and Tulane really is a bad team.
http://www.fbschedules.com/ncaa-15/aac/2015-ucf-knights-football-schedule.php

PS: I was stopped on the way to my daughter's graduation from UCF by a graduating senior, aged 41. He had never been to the campus and had flown in to graduate. He was looking for the auditorium.

Yeah, well, as a season ticket holder I can tell you that not every year 
is a winner. Last year was brutal. I do not have season tickets this year.

The team tells me good things about this new coach and there is a lot 
of excitement. I will likely try to attend a game or two.

But, Bob, come on! You make us sound like Trump University! Shocked
LOL

"But, Bob, come on! You make us sound like Trump University! Shocked

I'll bet that the whole campus wouldn't be half big enough to put all 60,000 students if they were to all show up instead of sit at their computers.

"The rapid growth at UCF spanning more than a decade, he says, has hurt students. He's among the faculty members who say class sizes, in some cases, have nearly doubled and instructional quality has suffered. In 2010-11, UCF's student-faculty ratio was 31-to-1 — the highest in Florida's public-university system.Sep 8, 2012"

Oh, yes. It is big enough for all 60,000. Huge. I don't hike across the campus anymore. 
It is too darn big. It is like a separate city of its own.

Yes, some classes are likely too big. But, that is all our public universities now. We have 
stopped providing adequate funding for education. (And, when have you ever heard a faculty 
member say they thought their classes were too small?)

Besides, I ain't talkin' Seminoles smack, now am I? ANY institution has it's less glamorous side, I am sure. Cool 
But, I CAN... Twisted Evil

Be careful if you want to talk smack about my alma mater's football team. BTW, I graduated from the U of Alabama. I think they have a fairly good team. Wink
