Couldn't help it.. I had to go virginia forums

    Watch, we will turn up on the "upset alert" list by some talking head. I can almost guarantee it. It's been every week.

    It’s cute how excited they are. I had no real feeling but now I sort of want to destroy them, because of their fans.

    My father was going to UVA medical school when I was born hence I was born in Richmond. 2.5 years of my initial life.

    My childhood comes back all grown up. It’s cute still though. I like that they think they can beat us.

    99% will pick Florida in pools across the country. The other 1% will forget to submit their dollar.

    Expecting a solid performance by our Gators against UVA. Need to SHINE / go 11-2 (UGA will lose their bowl game) and finish with the best record in the SEC east and finish top 5 in the nation!

    Just read their thread. They pretty much don't think they will win the game, they are just glad to be going to a good bowl somewhere warm.

    Probably spot on. My brother and brother in law went to UVA, and neither of them give a flip about their football team.

    I know. But they arent predicting an "easy" win...and only one guy is even predicting a win and he says "maybe".
    Love ya man, but it will be hrd to create much smack talk for this one.

    Respectfully, neither of those "predict a win" as you claimed.
    One says "maybe" and one says "keep it close".

    I mean, I think we are hoping for smack that isn't coming.
    UVA is a hoops school with some preppy Lacrosse type stuff mixed in. They barely care about football.

    This. That thread seems to be mostly people excited to go to Miami, and excited just to play us.

    Do y'all expect them to just uniformly say, "Florida. Crap. Oh, well. Miami is nice in December."

    It's a fanatic message board and I see no real fanaticism. A couple posters saying win, and only one exchange on matchup:

    Poster 1: Do we matchup well with Florida?
    Poster 2: No. They have great D and pass heavy O. Not good for us.

    ^^ that's it. That's the entirety of game discussion.

    I know we want to laugh at them, but there's nothing here to laugh at.

    Which is actually a beautiful spot. Was their for commencement one year and the stadium and setting is very nice. It lacks the high budget of the big boys...but that is understandable.

    This whole thing seems weird to me. Zero of their fans had flat out predicted victory at the time of this threads start.
    Again. What am I missing over there?

    I think by and large, this is what SEC fans expect their opponents to think like.

    Go GATORS!
