    Are those just the games we won? We all know there are some heartbreaking losses that are "classics" (not to us....)...

    We have other games to be shown, but they would be classics for other teams. Like a the 2008 Ole Miss game

    All the games are in the link

    I hope the replays put the games in perspective. Here's what I mean. Today, we all know how we destroyed Ohio State. But what is lost is the "worldly" view of the two games going into that game. Every national broadcaster picked OSU to be beat us soundly and easily. OSU was hyped as one of the greatest teams ever. Heck, I remember watching a pre-game show on SunSports (or its equivalent), where the host talked about what a great season we had and how fun the season was, only to conclude that we just did not have the talent or experience to have a shot with OSU. And that was the Gator-produced show!!

    I remember sitting down, with my heaping bowl of nachos, ready for kick-off, hoping we would at least put up a respectable fight. Then came the kick-off and the OSU run-back for a TD.

    Then, and only then, came the rest of the story (at the expense of Paul Harvey, may be rest in peace). The ensuing, unexpected and incredibly enjoyable blow-out, filled with indelible highlights like our guys relentlessly pursuing Troy Smith without a helmet, and Chris Leak running like he was Tim Tebow, started the SEC dynasty that continues to this day.

    That's the type of perspective that I hope these "classic replays" show.

    Like the perspective of 9 Vol losses in a row to the Gators after that screw job gift from Penn Wagers and crew back in 2004.

    Florida vs Ohio State

    We allowed only 78 yards of total offense. That must be a championship record of some kind!

    OK...I looked it up. It was 82 total yards and that is a record for all BCS games.

    Also found that Florida is 1 and 2 in total yards in a BCS game:

    Most Total Yards
    659-Florida vs. Cincinnati, Sugar, Jan. 1, 2010 (482 pass, 177 rush)
    659-Florida vs. Maryland, Orange, Jan. 2, 2002 (456 pass, 203 rush)

    Noteworthy that these were the final games for two of Florida's all-time football heroes, Spurrier and Tebow.

    And held the Heismann winning QB to 8 yards of total offense.

    Definite record against any QB in a championship game, I'm sure.

    Even though we lost .. the 1983 Florida vs Auburn game should be aired. An absolute classic! Both teams were LOADED with future NFL players that day.
    In 1983 we lost close games to Auburn and Georgia (both top five teams) and beat Miami 28-3. Would love to see that one again! Miami won the national championship that year.
    I remember the bumper stickers - Florida 28 - National Champions 3.

    I was told the oldest Gator game they currently have in the library is from 1973 Georgia.

    1997 vs FSU. We had no business winning that game other than some young men and a great coach stepping up!

    NM. It was in the SWAMP!

    I guess they didn't play football in the south much before the 90s.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they don't have the rights to a ton of stuff.
