    Yep, met some of the most obnoxious fans ever before that game. Luckily my wife was with me, so just a few comments and walked on. As expected their fans were gone by halftime.

    I can see how Va would be excited tho, New year's day bowl in SFla, chill on the beach for a couple days. So what if your team gets their butt kicked, still could be a good time. Sure beats Shreveport, ask a Cane. Maybe rent a Cane fan's air b&b.

    " I mean miami almost beat them and we almost beat Miami in our worst game. And if we can get 400yds of offense against clemson we shouldn't struggle against flordias d."

    Fine logic there.... they almost beat Miami who almost beat us, so they will beat us....

    When I lived in Richmond back in the day I asked a Virginia alum friend of mine why Va. came out flat in the 3rd quarter so often. He told me it was probably because a lot of the fans hadn't got back to their seats yet. I was like "WTF?". He said the fans were allowed to leave the stadium and tailgate during half time. I was stunned, actually, and I just laughed and told him that stuff didn't go on down here. The game seemed to be an afterthought to the Saturday afternoon party, or at least to me it did. I used to tell my friends up there that if they wanted to see real college football they needed to go to Florida, Georgia or Alabama to see what college football was really like.

    I was there and got tired of hearing “Fear the Turtle”. Hopefully the outcome is the same.

    I completely agree that he's a good coach but I believe that we have the better coach, staff, and athletes.

    I think we beat them with ease. But let's not pretend like they're pounding their chests predicting victory, they actually seem to be in awe of us.

    On the Orange Bowl:
    "Worse football venue I have ever attended. Bathrooms, concessions were 3rd world stuff.
    Embrassing that it’s a military venue too, they deserve better!!"

    ".....I mean miami almost beat them and we almost beat Miami in our worst game.
    And if we can get 400 yds of offense against clemson we shouldn't struggle against flordias d." o_O

    Pretty sure they are talking about Navy’s stadium for the Military Bowl in Annapolis.

    You do know back in the day UF used to allow fans to leave at halftime also....many NEVER made it back from the Porpoise etc.
    ($1 kamikaze shots will do that)

    Student section was visibly emptier after halftime of a lot of games

    I guess UF football wasn't really college football then...who knew?

    Navy beat Virginia two years ago in the Military Bowl 49-7.

    Virginia is, and will always be, a basketball school.

    Looks like ACC fans are as delusional as SEC fans
