    Men, today we show the world who we are. They don’t know who we are.

    To the media, we are an average team with a few lucky breaks. To college football fans, we haven’t played anybody with a pulse. To Auburn, they don’t think we have any talent...in fact many of us didn’t even get a sniff from them during recruiting. To Vegas, we are expected to lay an egg in our own stadium. The entire college football world is questioning if our team could even score a point against this defense, which is supposed to be the best in the nation.

    Men, today we show the world who we are. Today, we show them why our defense is not only ranked higher, but why it is nastier. Today, we show them why we have the longest winning streak in the SEC, not because of luck, but because we battle until the final whistle. Today, we show them why The Swamp is considered the toughest place to play, not only because of how loud it gets, but how passionate our fans and players are. Today, we show them why we’ve outscored our opponents 91-3 since our starting quarterback went down, not because of any one player, but because of our love for one another. Today, we show them that the Gators hit harder, execute at higher level, play with much greater effort...but most of all we show them our team sticks with one another, our team will fight for each other and our team will win this game together.

    Men, today we show the world who we are!

    “Dying in your beds, many years from now, would you be willing to trade all the days from this day to that, for one chance just one chance, to come back here, and tell our enemies, that they may take our lives, but they’ll never take our freedom!”

    My all time favorite movie. I watch it at least once a month. Not historically accurate but a well told story.

    I’m pumped

    another “whoa is me everybody hates the Gators” drivel. Being a 3 point dog against a higher ranked that had beaten stiffer competition shouldn’t be a slam on Vegas.

    Who here actually thinks we didn’t get a couple of breaks and we’re fortunate to be undefeated?

    I think we’ll win and that Auburn is overrated also.

    @grant1 I’ve been watching everything UF-Auburn related all week and 95% of the picks have been for Auburn. No one outside of the Gator Nation is picking UF. Our players and coaches should feel disrespected IMO.

    Win and it takes care of itself.
