On Oct. 27, 2007, Georgia celebrated a touchdown against Florida in what's since become known as "The Gator Stomp."

Generally, when a person makes a claim in his or her autobiography, it's true. (Knee slapper!) So when Urban Meyer vowed in his summer autobiography to get back at the Georgia Bulldogs for last season's now infamous "Gator Stomp" incident, we at SIOC really thought he meant it.

Sadly, as Meyer's Florida Gators prepare to battle the Georgia Bulldogs this weekend, he's recanted, calling G.S. "old news" and asking media and fans to move on.

Surely you jest, coach Meyer. You might be able to convince yourself you're over the shame and humiliation that washed over you as the Dawgs, en mass, swarmed the end zone to celebrate a touchdown, but you can't convince anyone else. Not Gator fans, not Gator players and certainly not the savvy, revenge-thirsty folks here at SIOC. 

And you know what, coach Meyer? You shouldn't be over it. Not yet. Not until you lead your Gators to victor over Mark Richt's Dawgs. Because yes, victory is the ultimate revenge. Whichever team wins this matchup will very likely play Alabama in the SEC championship game. And the winner of that game will very likely play for the national title.

With that said, if Florida wants to stoop to Georgia's level, we support that. Do the Gator Chomp in front of Georgia's cheerleaders, rub the paint off Georgia fans' faces. Heck, take Uga for a walk. Do something. Do anything. Just don't say you're over it, because you're not, and you shouldn't be.

Stomp that.
