When Alabama beat us in the SEC Championship Game, another Gator called me with this assessment, "We finally played the game I was afraid we had in us all year."

And I agreed with the way he put it.

If I were to call him tonight after the Sugar Bowl, my words would be, "We finally played the game I hoped we could play."

Probably the most complete game I've seen Florida play all year.

And it couldn't have come at a better time for the Gators.

No need for a recap. You can read the numbers in the box score.

With the adversity this program dealt with all year, especially this past month, a finer Sugar Bowl script couldn't have been written.

As I think back over the past year, what I'll remember most aren't really the wins and disappointing loss to Alabama. Instead, I'll think about the times I spent experiencing the ups and downs of being a Florida Gator.

It's always been that way for me.

As a kid, I suffered through many heartbreaking losses.

I've also been fortunate to celebrate many wonderful victories.

Tonight was a good night to be a Gator. And I've never been prouder of my team.

But like it's always been for me, it's never a "done deal."

We've still got some work to do.

We always will.
