    Alabama isn't our rival.

    Yep, FSU is no patsy. I don't think LSU has been more competitive than they have been.

    i hate fsu much much much more than lsu. i respect lsu to a certain point. i think the general fan bases both understand that we got screwed having to play each other every year(but has been an awesome rivalry)while our rivals such as bama and uga typically have very easy schedules. i can't think of anything that i respect about the fsu program. colors make me eyes hurt, chant gives me a headache and fans are beyond obnoxious. FSU takes the crown easily

    I think there are about 100 schools that would disagree. But you really have to back up and define what a rivalry is.

    Once you do that, most UF fans would say UGA and FSU are true rivals.
    UT would meet some fans' definition.

    Maybe, but you also said this in the OP:

    Saying that implies a lack of respect for the fact that a genuine rivalry exists. You can't just drop that and replace that with something (Miami would be the only possibility). Besides, only one other school has a circus and they don't play in the FBS.

    No. That is called out-coaching your opponent.

    I suggested dropping f$u for Auburn. Are you saying that Auburn is not a rival?

    On game day, I HATE EM ALL! After the game I can be cordial again, buy ya a beer and so forth. I dont care if its LSU, FSU, UGA, Vandy or Troy. Come kick off I detest the opponent and pray to baby Jesus the Gators humiliate them on national TV.

    -FSU is pure hatred.
    -LSU is a humid, hot, sticky state. Hot women, good food, rich culture and an SEC brethren. I hate them respectfully for 60mins then its "Hey dude, point me in the right direction to where the best boudin and Turbo Dog this town has to offer.
    -I effing hate some UGA too. But every bowl season I cheer on our conference.

    Anyways.....for now ........DIE TIGERS!!!!!

    No, I didn't say that. I don't know how you can be old enough to appreciate the Auburn rivalry but not old enough to appreciate the SWAC rivalry. Just curious, but where did you go to high school and what year did you graduate? I think most people are more aware of the SWAC rivalry well before they get to UF; I don't think you can say the same for the Auburn rivalry, not any more at least.

    Auburn WAS a rival. Its kind of dead to anyone 45 or younger. It had a nice run in the 90's for a couple years...but its really kind of past tense.

    Just MHO.

    I can't remember the last time I rooted against Auburn against some generic SEC opponent for instance, in the way I root against Georgia or Tennessee.

    I simply could care less if AU wins or loses. That puts their position as a rival in question to me.

    That's the other thing with Auburn is that we are always rooting for them at the end of the season, sometimes to help us get to Atlanta. When are any of us ever rooting for SWAC?

    I still see auburn as a rival, the series only ended in 2002, add in the fact they've beaten us every game since and that they still cheat like crazy, I see them as rival like scumbags.
