    Ya what's sad though we single handly brought everyone's attention back to them and this will help them a lot in my opinion.

    Not that I like it but that's kinda how I see it. Typical, Gators lose to a rival when it matters most

    Given the choice, I would not trade our win last year over rival F$U for this loss over wanna-be rival ScUM.

    And that win disproves your statement, BTW.

    52-20 says hello.

    Seriously. Other than last year vs. Georgia, when do we lose to rivals, "when it matters most"? Our recent losses to FSU and UGA didn't really matter at all outside of bragging rights. When we are real good we beat them. When there's nothing to play for (2007, 2011 for instance) we sometimes don't.

    But our history is...we beat our rivals when it matters most.

    Eh ...

    We lost to FSU in 2003 - a win would have almost certainly put us in the SEC-CG due to the tiebreaker.

    We lost to USC in 2005, otherwise we would have been in the SEC-CG.

    Lost to Alabama in 2009, which would have won us another national title.

    Our loss to UGA in 2007 also kept us out of the SEC-CG.

    He said "rivals"....if we are considering USCe and Bama as our rivals, I guess your right. But generally that term applies to FSU, UGA, and Tennessee.

    So in 10 years its happened twice. Hardly "Typical" as he described....But over the same span We have owned all three rivals. Going 6-0 in 06 and 08 "when it mattered most" (And heck if you wanna include USCe and bama we went 9-0 :wink:)

    "Typical" generally means it is the norm. Thats a million miles from accurate.

    It's not as rare as you seemed to indicate.

    And yeah, I'd at least consider FSU, UGA and Bama our rivals.

    We are 4-3 against Alabama in the SEC Championship Game, all but 2 of those games involved continued stake in the national championship for one team or the other (1993 and 1999).

    Georgia is only ever going to be able to be counted as a negative in this regard, because we play them earlier in the season and we can more easily point to a loss that eliminates us from the SEC Championship race than we can point to a single win that gets us there; they've gotten the better of us the last 2 years, but you can't mention that we don't play Georgia well with a straight face if you've been following football for 7+ years.

    South Carolina is not a rival, but if you do consider them that, then recognize that we beat them at home in 2000 in what was an Eastern Division Championship Game (they led 21-3 after 1 quarter in the SWAMP).

    We play Georgia earlier in the season? It's typically our second-to-last or third-to-last conference game.

    Also, I never said it happens often or whatever, I'm just saying the notion that it doesn't happen is untrue.

    I was just using the teams you mentioned to address Swaggers' "typical" comment. As for playing Georgia "earlier" that was in reference to when we typically play the other named teams. It's rare that we play Georgia with the opportunity to actually clinch the Eastern division. Last year was one of those times and only because we played them after we played South Carolina.

    And I'm sure Dream is referring to Miami.

    Who gave that notion? I just shot down the rediculous notion that its "typical".

    It's more like a timeshare than true ownership. I mean they have 5 wins against us over the past quarter century.

    Well......................................... I'm a Cane and I wouldn't say Miami owns UF. Just look at how close the series is. Both teams seem to get up for each other. This game should continue in my opinion.
