    Very disappointing. Can’t lose this game and FSU was almost given the game due to all those interceptions. Praying it’s the Pierce show and not Emory running 20 times and throwing a ton.

    WHAT?! Is he Italian or something? I mean he's so "fragile."

    If AR is out, then one of the new guys will get a lot of practice snaps and maybe some game time if it's a blow out or the pick machine is still going. They won't have any film on him.

    Isn't this largely the same group of guys that lost by 2 to the current #1 team in the country, minus most of their coaches? Couldn't we follow a similar game plan but just not throw the ball to the wrong color jerseys? Why overcomplicate? We have an extraordinary amount of time to prepare for an overmatched opponent, JUST DO IT!

    Going on this, it’s anybody’s guess what language the LSU players are used to hearing for their play calls.
    Bwuggafu Muwwaga on Slubbumugga — good luck with that Mr. Kelly in your fake Southern accent - he’ll have 4 WRs on wheel routes while the QB pitches the ball back 5 yards to nobody

    My stepson and I went to the USF game in September. Same venue and at the game 75% of the people there were Gators. I would expect an even higher percentage for the bowl since UCF is not the "home team"....

    I'm not going to sweat this game. Bowl games are hard enough to get the team motivated for; that is especially true for a bowl like the Gasparilla bowl. If ucf wins, their fans will crow but then we can just shut them up in a couple of years.

    That's awesome, Realty. The last time I saw a Gator game in Raymond James Stadium it was the Gators playing Iowa in the Outback Bowl... My sister and her husband had box seats for that bowl game, but I chose to stay in the general seating with my friends from Central Florida.. I'll bet they have box seats for this one too. They are very well connected in the Tampa area.

    The weirdest thing was that she was using binoculars and spotted me in the crowd in the general seating amongst thousands of fans. But she did at least know that I was going to be there... but she had no clue as to the area I would be sitting in. That's pretty amazing...

    I have to think he is going to be back for the game. May not be able to start because of the lost practice.

    It just doesn't seem like AR is a guy that can stay healthy. I wish, but so far, no.

    I can picture UCF being super pumped for this game and we being flat. I hope Pierce plays and stays healthy. Perhaps our pass game needs to be simple. It does not seem to make sense to have EJ pass over the middle. Just get the ball to playmakers in space and extend the drive.

    I think he should heal and not be hurried up for this ridiculous game.

    I don't know what Bowl posters think would be more exciting to be selected for with a 6-6 record?
