    Then you have not been around UF v. Miami much in the last 30 years. It is our tradition to find a way to lose to Miami and we should have won most of those games.

    This really surprises me, you seem pretty positive most the time. I didn't know you went into games expecting us to lose. Sad.

    I think what happened is that we faced an unusually weak Toledo team and struggled with them in the first game. The players came out of that game telling themselves that they just played a top-20 team, and assumed they could keep up with a better team with the same effort. If we had played a top-20 team in the opener, our players would have been better-prepared for Miami. (Although, we would probably have had our a$$e$ handed to us in the opener.)

    I missread your post. I thought you were referring to losing in general, not just to Miami. If thats your point, I can accept that a bit more. If you meant in general...than no way.
