UF / UT November 30th, 2001 @ 10:53 pm PDT
They are 18-point underdogs, the biggest spread against them since 1988. They have lost seven of the last eight games against the Gators and haven’t won in The Swamp since 1971, when Fulmer played guard for Tennessee and Steve Spurrier was a backup quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers. School officials have figured that it […]
Fowler on UF / UT November 30th, 2001 @ 10:44 pm PDT
Chris Fowler: It’ll be nice in Gainesville, site of College GameDay for the sixth time. I’m not that hopeful, but it might be nice to watch a close game for a change. Far be it from me to whine about the amazing gig we GameDay guys have. But the score of the last two games […]
No Go November 30th, 2001 @ 5:59 pm PDT
I’m not going to Gainesville for the game. I really wish I was, but I just can’t convince myself to do it. I have enough Delta SkyMiles to swing it, but I would have to pay an additional $75 since it’s so last-minute. Monday I’m starting a new job and it just wouldn’t be cool […]

Rosy Gators November 26th, 2001 @ 8:48 am PDT
Tony Barnhart, writing in the AJC: “Rarely has an open date been so productive as last Saturday was for the Florida Gators.” His preliminary analysis of the BCS numbers suggests that UF would have enough points to push past Texas even if the Longhorns beat Colorado. BTW, that Colorado-Nebraska game was unreal to watch.
Nebraska Stunner November 23rd, 2001 @ 11:57 pm PDT
Nebraska’s defeat … means that Florida’s remaining schedule of Tennessee and a potential SEC Championship Game (against either Auburn or LSU) will be stronger than Oklahoma’s closing pair of games versus Oklahoma State and Colorado. The result is this: the Gators will close ground on the Sooners in the computers and will blow past them […]
Graham Drama Continues November 21st, 2001 @ 7:41 pm PDT
Gators Tailback Considers Suit – In a statement Wednesday, Graham said, ‘I got tackled on the play. That was perfectly OK. There were two guys on top of me and I felt them against my body. And then I felt someone tugging on my leg. He kept twisting harder, harder and harder until I felt […]

An Opposing View November 21st, 2001 @ 7:35 am PDT
Had to chuckle at this new blog, created apparently because the Earnest Graham injury accusation was the straw that broke the camel’s back for the author. Heh.
