re: When was the last time your university played 2 OOC P5 opponents - bgator85
[quote] Some universities in the SEC have not done it in forever Like Florida [/quote] ? We probably do it more than a lot of the major college football schools because we still play Miami every few years. Next year we play Michigan and FSU. Then in 2019 we play Miami and FSU. ...

re: Surprising lack of AP Top 5 finishes for the Big 6 over the last 80 years... - bgator85
[quote]Top 5 finishes in College Basketball: 29- Kentucky 4- Arkansas 3- Missouri 2- Florida [/quote] It is impressive, but believe they release the final poll before the tournament. It is a bit odd seeing us with two considering we have two national championships and a runner-up finish in 20...

re: Final Directors' Cup Standings - bgator85
[quote]I believe UCLA won it the first year and Stanford wasn't in the top 10. Not sure how that could have happened since they have won it every year since. I'm going to look it up and see if I am full of shite on this. [/quote] I think you were still right here, there was an older version and it...

re: Final Directors' Cup Standings - bgator85
[quote]Has someone other than Stanford ever won it?[/quote] In 2012 we came within 16 points. I believe UNC won it several years ago. We need to add some men's sports for us to truly have a chance to win it annually. Right now it is very tough to overtake Stanford without some extraordinary circ...

re: Is Florida the only team that never has to play a conference game until week 3 s - bgator85
[quote]No try 2 weeks before SEC play vs cupcakes is most definitely an advantage.[/quote] Ok let's say it is, are you saying playing a cupcake midseason is not an advantage as well? It all balances out as the season progresses. ...

re: Is Florida the only team that never has to play a conference game until week 3 s - bgator85
[quote]Cherry pick much? Florida's out of conference schedule has been softer than tucks hemorrhoid wipes for two and a half decades now. Almost as soft as Bamas, and would be if not for FSU. Yes we play UMASS this year, we are due for an easy one. I'd put our ooc schedule up against anyone in the S...

re: Is Florida the only team that never has to play a conference game until week 3 s - bgator85
[quote]Yea I have beef with it and I think it makes a huge difference getting cupcakes to scrimmage with to open the season. [/quote] It is a trade off, while we may start conference play later we also don't get cupcake opponents to break up the SEC schedule. South Carolina is playing UMass after...

re: Why wasn't Florida Field named after Urban Meyer? - bgator85
[quote]Spurrier put UF on the map. Florida football was a joke before he got there. Plus he played there and won y'all a Heisman.

re: SEC Teams - Overrated/Underrated since 1989 - bgator85
I think it is an odd way to come up with this ranking. Of course we are going to be towards the bottom. We were ranked in all but two preseason polls since 1989, Utah wasn't ranked in 20. ...

Probably going to be a while. Think they said earliest would be 8:10, but there was still lightning in the area so expect it to be pushed back. Could be another late start. ...
