    The bus driver for the Nebraska team in the Natty 1995 game takes a left instead of a right into the stadium in Phoenix :)

    We'd have lost another game down the road. It's in the Florida constitution somewhere.

    We missed a short field goal that would have at least given us OT. That's the play I remember most from that game.

    1) Just 1 stop against LSU on 4th down in the 4th quarter in 2007.

    2) Any of the TDs that Tennessee ran over us in 2001. We stop them just once, and we win the game, kill LSU in the SEC Championship Game, and play Miami for the national title.

    3) The missed FG against Tennessee in 1998. I still can't believe our kicker missed that.

    4) That mfn onside kick against Michigan in the 2007 Capital One Bowl. That really shifted the momentum of the game to Michigan.

    5) Driskel's first pass in the Sugar Bowl.

    6) Take your pick between the fumble on the punt return, or the missed XP in overtime against Bama in 1999.

    Oh and that bogus excessive celebration penalty against Michigan State in the 2000 Citrus Bowl. That was pure BS and basically gifted Michigan State with excellent field position to kick the game-winning FG.

    We had a TD called back on a bogus "Holding" call in the 24-21 FSU win at Doak in '96.
    That's all right.
    We got 'em in the rematch for the NC.

    There are losses you cry after and losses you just want to rip someone's head off after. They all suck regardless of the big picture for the season.

    Nobody's mentioned Warrick Dunn's TD in '93 that turned the Swamp from the loudest it's ever been to the quietest in five seconds. Notre Dame lost to BC in their last regular season game a few days before. We would have almost certainly gotten the shot at Nebraska if we could have pulled out a win over St. Bobby's media darlings.

    You're correct, of course. But since the scenario is that you can change the outcome of any one play, I'm surprised at some of the responses here.

    I'm sticking with my game choice of the 2009 SEC Championship Game, since that loss seems to have had a profound impact on the collapse of this football program since.

    However, rather than McElroy throwing a pick-six on his first pass, I'm going to amend the result to his being sacked in a dreadful manner by Justin Trattou (who had to play in place of our absent Carlos Dunlap), resulting in a fumble returned for a touchdown. When McElroy gets up, he finds that he can't manipulate his throwing arm correctly (just like what would happen to Colt McCoy some weeks later). McElroy gets to sit and watch the rest of the game while Alabama's ridiculous backup (whoever that would have been) goes on to lose the game almost single-handedly with turnover after turnover.

    I want this in return for McElroy's smarmy comment after the BCS Championship Game that his ring would not read that Texas lost McCoy to an injury on the very first drive of the game.

    Because I'm generous, McElroy's arm would heal completely in time for Alabama to play Cincinatti in the 2010 Sugar Bowl.

    We could go on and on but I'd rather change the plays in the most significant games.

    93 b.s. personal foul against auburn or the pick six on their goal line. We win that we play fsu undefeated in 93

    94 Danny doesn't throw deep into double coverage against auburn. We run the clock out and stay undefeated at home and in season. Again

    Marquand Manuel. Pick one

    Capel stays in bounds at Tennessee. Or magriff doesn't fumble

    Darrel Jackson muff.

    All the others were covered although I'm surprised driskels pick at halftime or reeds fumble against Georgia didn't get more mention. We play for it all if we win that one

    Actually, we play for the SEC Championship if we win that one. And frankly I just don't like our chances against Alabama in that game. If forced to bet the mortgage, I don't think we would have even kept it as close as Georgia. Alabama and Georgia both had very, very soft opponents going into that game (Auburn and Georgia Tech, respectively), where Florida was coming off a very hard-fought game in Tallahassee against the SOW and their refs. Further, I don't know if anyone remembers that blatant uncalled personal foul against Aaron Murray right in front of a ref before halftime, but let's not forget that Jeff Driskel would have still been recovering from an injury he received three weeks before.

    You don't like our chances. Did you like them against lsu? Or fsu for that matter? Or given what a&m did the rest of the year how about how we fared against them?

    We play for it all if we beat Georgia. We play bama for it all then notre dame for it all. Don't mean to sound curt

    The "refs" call the nolies on a push in the back, allowing that little munchkin to take it to the house in 93..
