The five teams I consider Florida’s biggest rivals, in order:
There's no mystical energy field controls my destiny.
In FBS history, a missed field goal has only been returned for a touchdown four times. There [had] never been a walk-off field goal return — scoring the winning touchdown on the last play, much less the last play of the biggest game of the year, between teams ranked No. 1 and No. 4, with […]
It’s really hard for me to wrap my head around the idea that Tim might not make it in the NFL. It seems absurd to me. When my alarm rang at six this morning, there was a text waiting for me that read, “Heard Tebow was cut from NPR before ESPN.” My first thought was […]

I’m sure you’ve seen the Helvetica t-shirts. The classic one displays “John & Paul & Ringo & George”. (The creators of that shirt have a pretty good website detailing its history.) Someone needs to make some of these for classic Gator combinations. Here are my suggestions: I know, I know. I forgot to include Percy […]

Two great snippets from the EDSBS preview of tonight’s game: Weather: Perfect and Valhalla-ish, because it is California, the place that would be perfect if everyone else hadn’t already figured out the same thing and moved there before you did. 68 degrees and clear at the kick as the sun sinks in pink-red glory behind […]

Losing sucks. I was raised to worship the Red Sox and the Patriots and, although this century has been damn good to both of them, losing was my way of life until I got to college. The Red Sox — a lot of kids today might not realize — were the team that was always […]

Reprinted from ESPN.com: GAINESVILLE, Fla. — As the most impactful player in college football history made his way around the edge of Florida Field for the last time, the poignancy of the moment was etched on thousands of faces.
Tomorrow afternoon we will see the last game in The Swamp for Tim Tebow. I can’t imagine what the energy is going to be like in that stadium. That the game is against Florida State makes it even more tremendous. At this point I don’t think I can tell you how many times I’ve seen […]

As I get older I find it increasingly difficult to explain my love of football. You’d think that the opposite would be true, that I would find it easier to tell people how wonderful it is as I understand the game more. But that is simply not the case. I follow Stewart Mandel on Twitter […]
Arkansas is too good to be a trap game this year. In the games against Auburn, Texas A&M and Georgia, Arkansas scored in 11 of 12 quarters. They scored 10 points or more in 6 of those 11 quarters. Urban Meyer received so many prank calls from LSU fans that he ditched his cell phone […]
