The Gators said all the right things leading up to the the 2013 Sugar Bowl, but actions speak louder than words. Florida came into the game a heavy favorite over their opponent, but the Gators players and Will Muschamp insisted that they respected the Cardinals and that they were taking them seriously.
If the Gators took the Cardinals seriously it surely didn't show. Florida came out flat on offense and defense and the game wasn't as close as the scoreboard will show.
Louisville's 33 points were the most that Florida gave up all season, and Teddy Bridgewater's 266 passing yards were the most the Gators had allowed since November 5, 2011.
It's back to the drawing board for the Gators who will need to remember this feeling, being embarrassed on national television and use it as motivation as they prepare for next season.
Let's take a look at all 22 starters and grade their performance in the season finale.
