    I went on the thread and said I'll eat my crow. You were right.

    There was no wager. Just saying that would be a great place for $100.

    Not sure what you are referring to. Alabama stayed ahead in CFP rankings and Auburn stayed ahead inAP and Coaches, status quo. I agree with AP and not CFP. Nothing changed about my postvover the re-ranking.

    I don't remember all the details, but there was a merch salesman in Gainesville who's daughter went to UVA, and he got the idea to sell their Orange and Blue pennants back in Gainesville and slap a Gator on them. The other "common" story is that our colors were a merger of the two mother institutions that made UF, but so much from that era of college sports is apocryphal.

    You said, "Head to head never guarantees a higher ranking. See Auburn and Alabama. Two very bad losses should not allow them to be ahead of Florida or Alabama."

    I thought this was your response to why Georgia should not be ahead of Florida and Alabama.

    Well, that wasn't exactly.what I meant. Essentially you are at the whim of the voters even if you have a hth win. It is a factor but not conclusive. Wisky over UF is an example of whim even with more losses and bad losses.
