    Let's be honest - we've beaten Toledo/UK/UT/Arkansas. Not all that thrilling.

    I think the Gators can definitely win this game - it's not the same LSU team this year. Their D is very ordinary. But it's not getting hype b/c everyone just assumes LSU will beat us by a TD or more.

    Exactly, what a nightmare. LSU pounding will help erase the stench of cow manure.

    I agree that it has a lot more to do with ESPN having nothing to do with the game. It just doesn't make financial sense for them to hype a game they have nothing to do with.

    However, on a side note, this game really is an opportunity for us to get the national respect everybody seems to feel we deserve. People will be talking about the Gators if we can beat LSU in Baton Rouge.

    Seems like of all the highlights, conversations etc. on college football, we really didn't get talked about much. Been watching pretty much all night. (ESPN, sports center)

    It's all about "Shake up Saturday".

    Stanford, UGA, Penn state, Oklahoma, almost A&M. Us, to a lesser extent. We're slipping!
