No I ain't looking down, but i see no one above me!!!
Agreed. Stats can lie, usually do
I did think that UF had not been looking good since the UGA game. Florida had been riddled with injury and after the teams they've had to play, understandably limping into the game. The thing is, its never easy to evaluate a game so fiercely contested. Due to a rise in passions and tempers flaring...they are still kids. C'mon, I know just how good Florida is..I knew they had every bit the talent FSU had, I knew they were capable but a lot of the time its about when your peaking. Florida had not had a great game in a while but obviously, you can't deny the passion they play with against their biggest rival. So, yes, I never denied that FSU was certainly capable. I never denied that on paper, Florida should lose. That's why they play the game...I'm not God and I'm not perfect, obviously.
Not a job, a hobby and If you followed my posts...you'd know I'm a stat hawk and I talk about schemes and specifics. I may sound odd but I enjoy it
You ask "why I didn't have faith in my team"...I have a different mindset then you, that's all. I'm here to evaluate talent, teams and percentages. I'm not here to be a fan, or talk about what the teams I'm rooting for or not are GOING to do. Nothing is certain in sports, especially when dealing with teenagers. Football is the most intricate and detailed team sport in the world. When dealing with so many uncertainties, coaching staffs and schemes that literally make chess look juvenile. Injuries, level of understanding, passion and belief in the game plan etc etc. I am not PLAYING on the team, I am not going to say or do anything that I can't back up. I am a realist, I am logical and I look at the facts. I pay attention to every aspect of Florida's game. Look, I'll be honest with you...I knew Florida had a chance. But, if you underestimate your expectations and your team does better then you though...guess who wins? You and your team. Nobody picked Florida because people are so obsessed with stats, because people believe the hype. Hype is what FSU has had the past two years, Florida is suppose to be rebuilding. You have to understand, I was one of the FEW that saw this season coming for the Gators. I had evaluated every category for Florida and done the same for every team on their schedule. I wasn't perfect but I got damn close, the pollsters are wrong half of the time. Stats lie, especially when a team doesn't have adequate competition. Look at the media and how they literally drive perception. Florida is one of those teams that literally rises or falls to their level of competition though...I think injuries and a tough schedule is part of the reason. Doesn't really matter but that's my opinion, I've always said but the end of this season nobody will want to play them. FSU might have been a tad overconfident going into the game too, judging by some comments made by several players...that is just my opinion. Goodnight and sorry for giving you a hard time, I really just wanted some sort of acknowledgement that you were wrong for what you did. We all do stupid sh*t, I'm not immune. Good luck to the Noles against GT, I don't root for them but I'd like to see them win and represent Florida... :) Night
Florida dominated you in every area, they literally marched down the field from their first possession. Your last 6 points were BS btw but it doesn't matter. Florida scored the same amount against you as Clemson did, thought Florida's offense was bloody laughable. Maybe net time you won't disrespect a team who's taken out 3 top 10 teams through 10 games. Maybe next time you won't insult people for rooting for a different team either.
BTW Good, reading Joe's board...nobody I know is saying Florida won because of turnovers. Nope, unlike FSU last year, Florida dominated in yardage too. 250 on the ground against the "best D line in the nation"...against the "#1 statistical D" in the nation. Guess stats and talk don't mean much? Guess you can't talk so much when your going on about teenagers?
You called me and my fellow Gator fans idiots for thinking we had a shot. You were literally laughing at us like a 12 year old. You made so many outlandish, immature comments it was epic. I told you, better beet us as bad as you say you will. I warned and you lol. Just came to pay up :) I'll leave you alone but you know you deserve it
Dude.. you were 10th in he BCS going into the game. Even if you had beaten us you still would not have played for the title, there were way too many people in front of you to jump. DUH!
Wait... you say you don't follow recruiting and then you say that we haven't topped you in recruiting since Jimbo took over? Here is one credible source's opinion. You got us in 2011(Coach Booms first year)
No, FSU was a failure. FSU had the easiest schedule and was picked to be a Natty contender. UF was literally laughed at and has more respect because they EARNED their way up the rankings. Guess they do have as much "talent" as you and guess all those stats don't matter if you don't play anybody.
