    Have to say, whoever is doing those writeups is doing a pretty decent job, given there is one for each 128 teams.

    They don't seem to get into the specific players so much as where the program is or isn't in the improvement cycle, and what the coach has to work with.

    Its time to add 5 more years to Muschamp's contract, we're ranked higher than Duke...in a preseason poll.

    Very surprising. Did not know that either. Says a lot about our program.

    Why is it surprising? Because many fans believe Florida was a bottom feeder prior to 1990? In spite of being saddled with severe sanctions, Florida didn't have a losing season from 1986-1989. The six years prior to that, we were 50-17-1 (.743). Had not we been crushed by sanctions, Florida would probably have been the best team in the SEC across the decade.

    This is why perception is NEVER, EVER reality.

    I think you missed the point entirely. The surprising thing has more to do with the teams in the SEC OTHER than Florida.

    Worm .. I was surprised at the number of losing seasons Alabama, LSU, Auburn and Georgia had during those 34 years.

    Mother of God. This is total torture, because revealing the next team is slower than the coming season.

    I'm fifteen days away from college football, but you're only on twenty.

    It's twoo .. it's twoo.
    LSU had losing seasons in 81, 83, 89, 90, 91, 92, 93, 94, 98 and 99.
    And then .. somebody made a deal and POOF .. lil Nicky Satan appeared.

    Something's wrong.

    I can see all of FSU's opponents here except 2 (ND and Clemson). How can this be? I thought all 12 of their opponents were ranked in the Top 5?
