We're overreacting to our loss and the talent gap between our team and Louisville. That Cardinal team is going to be very good next year, and they will get their props next year because of what they showed in the bowl game. It's a case of them maturing and healing during the month break while Florida coasted.
Also, as SEC partisans, we were overreacting to the conference record this bowl season. This year is about average during our run of dominance. Check out this link:
All is well. And if Jeff Driskel matures as we all expect, and Muschamp is comfortable giving Brent Pease freer reign -- as we all hope, I suspect -- next year will be our championship year. Personally, I'm hoping for a Florida vs. A&M conference championship game next year. That game might set television viewing records for the SEC Championship game.
