    "Damn you handed my ass to me in a very boastful diatribe."

    Dude...that line rocks! That's one of those "I wish I would have said that" lines!

    I have had zero bad or negative vibes about this game and even believe that Trask will upstage the LSU passing effort by having just under 400 yards passing by half.
    If I get bad vibes before a game then it usually goes bad. This one is clearly going to be a fast end for Virginia.

    Even money says you were one of those saying last year that there was no way that UK could/would beat us.

    I, too, believe we will win easily and cover the spread, but wouldn't be shocked to see it go the other way.

    Bowl games are like a box chocolates. You never know what you're going to get, unless Miami is playing.

    Does anyone know if Zuniga will play tonight? How about Swain, i hear he is questionable?

    No, it wont be as close as you think when you consider how many very bad to average defenses Perkins accumulated those stats against.

    He'll make a couple of big plays no doubt, but overall, UF should be able to take advantage of UVA's OL and contain him well.

    I was hoping we would win but I kind of knew the day before it was going to go bad.
    For this game though I am very confident that we will win the game 48-7 but I actually think the Gators will pull 50 plus. Let's see how it goes. The passing numbers are a virtual lock as Trask is going to eat their linebackers for lunch.

    A year after winning the Peach Bowl, coach Dan Mullen could lead Florida to its first 11-win season since 2012 with a victory. Standing in the way is a Virginia team that has had one of the more dynamic offenses in the ACC.

    I think this game will be similar to how we scored against FSU. We come out strong and build a comfortable 3 TD lead, then once UVA gets within 17 we'll step on the gas again.

    UVA will be better than FSU and Miami though ( not exactly rocket science) so don't expect our defense to completely shut them down the way we did FSU. FSU quit after the 1st half, don't expect UVA to do that with us. Our defense is susceptible to the big play and UVA has the QB that can make them. Hopefully UVA has a bad offensive line and we control the LOS. This will be the most talented QB we've faced since Burrow and I'm including Fromm. I blame Granthams scheme for that loss!

    A lot of very confident posters on this board. I agree we SHOULD crush them, but only time will tell if we DO. Still have to bring it, can't just show up and expect to win.

    Man, I could have written this exact post.

    Bowl games can be hard to judge. Does the team take it as a free vacation, or are they looking for respect.

    I trust Mullen has these kids head on straight. But we will see in just a few hours now.

    Go Gators!

    I think this group of seniors will not let this be close. They will leave it all out there and bring home the W. This is a chance for them to really end on a high note with their time at UF and they’ll be ready.

    Why would they post a picture of a Miami home game when this is clearly the pregame setup for the Orange Bowl?

    I’ll be watching at a beach bar here on the island of Anguilla in the Caribbean. Somewhat randomly it has a ton of college team flags all over it and one of them is of course Florida. It’s also gonna be on a big screen on a projector. Pics are from last night - I was here to watch 9ers Seahawks.

    Let’s crush these clowns.
