    We played 7 more FBS teams the rest of the regular season. They had an average Sagarin Rating of 35. We went 7-0 against those teams with an average margin of victory of 38.

    The only team that came with 30 points of us was Vanderbilt who put a couple of scores up late in the game after FLORIDA had taken a 42-0 lead.

    That whole season was a lot of fun, the hurt from the Ole Miss game was needed. We probably could have used a similar game the following season.

    I like this one better :D

    What's amazing is we still haven't had a undefeated season in the history of UF football.
    What's it been...107 years?

    It was Harvin and he just barely missed him. I always though Harvin could have caught one of them if he had laid out for it. I think tebow was getting hit as he threw it as well.

    That's the amazing stat to me... seems like everyone else has, even teams that haven't won a NC have had an unbeaten season.

    I look forward to that before I die...

    Go Gators!

    I blame Urban Meyer. He did it at Utah the year before he came here and at tOSU the first year he coached after he was here, but failed to deliver for us.

    I don't know why we don't count that 1911 season as a "Undefeated Season".
    Even Tebow on the first post of this thread at the 2:30 mark says we never have done it.

    1996 was more impressive, we beat every team we played.

    To the NFL -- you can keep your money --

    This is what is called class, desire, and character.

    That is what your league should be made of.

    Thanks

    Give me a break. I love college football, but the NFL is a great product. The players are elite. They are dedicated. They want to be the best. Sure there are bad apples, but most players bleed for the game. That safety for the Cardinals pulled a Ronnie Lott and lost the top of his middle finger and is still dedicated to his team. His crap team nonetheless. That is character.

    Let me get this straight. If Tebow said we were never undefeated, does that man that 1911 no longer exists? I know Tim is good with The Lord, but I didn't think he could just wipe history clean like Stalin did...
