It's hard for me to remember final scores from a lot of our most memorable games, but this is the one I'll definitely never forget.
Most will know the first two. The third is a little tougher.
52-20. After the first game, this rematch was beyond sweet, not only because it was our first MNC, but also because it was the sweetest redemption to beat down your bitter rival for ALL THE MARBLES.
41-14. Watching Chris Leak hoist that football into the air on the final snap was probably the most emotional I have ever been watching a Florida game. having demolished an Ohio State team that was hailed as perhaps the greatest ever (Florida had no business being on the field with them, dontchaknow) made it sweeter.
20-13. Florida winning over heavily favored Florida State as Ron Zook was carried off the field on the shoulders of his players on the day Bobby Bowden was to have the field dedicated to him. It is forever known as Ron Zook Field. Knowing that image boiled the blood of the Doomsday Posse on this board made it even sweeter!
28-3. Handing the eventual MNC Hurricanes their only loss, and a beatdown at that.
32-29. Dougie to Quezzie killed FSU's MNC aspirations.
62-37. Tennessee had a two TD lead at halftime and thought the game was in the bag. Silly Vols.
24-14. Winning our third MNC.
20-13. handing the hated Dawgs their only loss, keeping them out of the MNC picture.
19-7. Handing eventual MNC LSU and Saint Nick their only loss of the season, with a Zook as coach, a true freshman at QB and at Red Stick.
52-20 (ncg FSU)
41-14 (ncg Ohio St.)
24-14 (ncg OU)
17-16 (cock block)
32-29 (97 uf-fsu, LOUD)
Half a hundred between the hedges...
I don't think it's possible to top 52-20. Not for me.
20-13 was nice, because it got a real monkey off of the back.
I have a friend who's an OSU fan, and I always say 41-14 to him any time he starts talking crap, and even despite our 4-8 season, it still shut him up every time. lol
Well, there were those Kentucky/Curry beatdowns (73-7, 65-0). Not necessarily significant but pretty impressive.
So many to choose from
If I had to pick just one it would be 52-20!
The Best Game that I attended was:
1994 SEC Championship in Atlanta - UF 24 Bama 23 - Sitting behind two of the most obnoxious, slightly drunk Tide Fans. - SWEEEEEEET
82-6 over Western Michigan was fun. I really really enjoy beat-down scrimmage games like Jax St, ULL, Furman, and GSU were.. oh wait..
Plenty of Gator fans these days might prefer a nail-biter win (or loss?) over a "big 5" team instead though...
Sometimes those beatdown games are actually a lot of fun. Just seeing your offense cruise like they're practicing against air, yet there are actually people trying to stop them, can be fun..
Oh how I miss the days...
52-20. Although, 32-29 after watching Janikowski mock the chomp was sweet.
SOS ruined the younger Gator Nation. And we all know why he really left and then did not come back.
Remember, we did not even win the SEC until 1984. We are in a rough spot. We'll be back.
I think SOS couldn't handle the beast he created in the fans. After all, we just followed in his footsteps.
True, although it just isn't producing enough pick-6s.
Agreed. I was actually just having that same discussion with my wife the other night. Hopefully that changes this season.
