    If you look up “elite" in the dictionary, it reads “The University of Florida defense ".

    We'll be top 3 sooner rather than later.

    I miss the days of perfect seasons, ending in bowl game blowouts for our fifteenth consecutive national championship, led by our record-setting offense and defense that didn't allow a single point for 49 straight quarters. Why we can't have that just befuddles me!

    Well the last time we were ranked #1 throughout the season it was kind of joyless even though we only lost 1 game. They was just so much pressure to play better than we did.

    they don't whine about everything like we do. they don't have "im scared of so and so" threads every week

    they have had an undefeated season, we havent

    they expect to win, not hope to win and whine and moan like we do too.

    When we beat them in 08 I heard it all year in 09 from bama fans "we gonna get you this year"

    But our fans are too busy being scared of Toledo, or UT to even have fun and look forward to games.

    On the bright side, our offense has been flawless this week.
