“I get this question about once a day, whether it’s from a Florida fan or during a radio interview: How did Florida lose to Auburn? This week, the response is different. Instead of analyzing what happened to the Gators, I ask a question right back. Does it really matter? Think about it. If Florida had […]

“I brought a fleece,” University of Tennessee student Lance Pasco said mockingly as the temperature rose to 85 degrees in Gainesville, Fl. “For God’s sake, why did I bring a fleece?”


The Houston Chronicle: “You need a flowchart to keep track of all the subplots of today’s game between No. 2 Florida and No. 7 Tennessee at “The Swamp” — a berth in the Southeastern Conference championship game, a possible berth in the national championship game, bragging rights and a rematch of one of last year’s […]
