    Hoping the Sugar is saying we want Florida since they had Georgia last year. The poodles stunk it up enough for the Gators to move above them.

    Regardless, we can't have another Louisville in the Orange and we'd have to beat a good Baylor team in the Sugar. It is all important to show continued improvement by finishing 11-2. Win and all is outstanding.

    College football Committee Chairman being interviewed by Reese Davis now. Says Committee considered putting UGA at 4 before hiving it to Oklahoma. My bet is Dawgs get Sugar Bowl

    If we can't win the east, we don't deserve much. Orange Bowl is more than enough for me.

    Inside your head.
    I'm happy with the Orange Bowl. It's an hour and a half down 95 from me and would make attending easy. I would enjoy beating Virginia as well. Winning that one and maybe finishing #5 in the country would be a very satisfying season. Losing only to the #1 and #5 teams in the nation ain't a bad resume' to recruits either.

    Just waiting for the other announcements to leak out. It's ridiculous that they babble for 3 hours about 4 teams then 1 about the rest. Everyone is projecting us against Virginia in the Orange so it seems pretty much set.

    If they had any sense they would announce the playoff games last.

    As do I, but VA has no business being in it with us. I want to play and beat a real opponent, an exclamation point at the end of a great season.

    We got our colors from them, so it seems fitting.

    If Florida gets the Orange Bowl, I will bet $10,000,000,000 that between now and next August, some journalist hack will write the following:

    "Florida went 11-2 last year, but 9 of those games were in the state of Florida. Should the Gators be forced, like other schools, to play outside of their own state"

    Dont get me wrong. Im not saying we deserve to be ranked ahead as the h2h is more important if there's a tie breaker. We both have two losses, and their losses are worse than ours, but they have the h2h so I expect that they would be ahea . Just giving context to the common opponents we played.

    I'm here to eat my crow, shoe and whatever else. I guess uga gets credit for getting beat by LSU twice as bad ass we did and scoring about 1/3 as much as we did. Maybe it is because of all their injuries.
    Oh wait, what's that you say, we had neither Zuni nor greeny? Lol.

    Uga has looked like crap all year... Except cager against us.

    I'd rather play UVA in the Orange Bowl. There is no glory in beating either of those teams, but Baylor seems like a better team than UVA, so take the easier win and the presence in Miami and finish top 5 or 7 again.

    WOW they kept UVA ranked in the CFP poll...#24. I guess there was no way they were gonna allow an unranked team to take the automatic ACC spot.
