    I didn’t feel sorry for us when we were getting curb stomped during the 4-8 seasons

    Was I mad? Yeah, at the Gators or letting it happen

    But I could never blame a team for pouring it all over us

    Would have, could have.....fine...but...
    It was MUCH better to see EJ in there, to do his thing, and score three TDs.

    Yeah, agreed, Trask is impressive, but, when you're putting in 2nd and 3rd stringers in the game, it's great for them to really get into it.

    You know, we beat an SEC conference and east division team 56-0 and two teams in front of us in the CFP poll lost, but, we're still expected to drop one or two spots in the rankings. Imagine if we had won 20-17. Plus there was the dust up last year.

    Same outcome. We were going to drop no matter the score, unless we had lost, then we wouldn't have been in the Top 20. The problem is they are looking at the field and saw a 2 loss team ahead of Minnesota, so they had to put them in the Top 10. Penn St lost a close one to Minn so they didn't drop far, still ahead of us. Oklahoma is jockeying for position. Essentially, they are trying to balance the Power 5, and having 3 multi-loss SEC teams in the Top 10 along with LSU is getting a lot of complaints from those outside of the SEC.

    It might very well appear bad on the surface, but you have to give the 2nd and 3rd teams reps. They are the future and you can't tell them NOT to score. That goes against what they practice to do. Score.

    Ohio State routinely scores points like this. Move along

    Not sure about that. I think if we had squeaked out a close win, we could have dropped even more.

    Getting late in the season and in all honesty, when you're in OSU's position, style points is good strategy if you can get them.

    It's why I hope we lay it on our next two opponents if we are able to, just like we did to Vandy.

    Agree, nobody felt bad when we were getting pounded a few years ago, score play D score again.

    I was saying at the beginning of the season that Trask should start because of his downfield vision and release. In that way he reminds me of Rex G. The ball releases out of his hand nicely. If he starts next season it gives the Gator offense I think a chance open up vertically.

    Our leading rusher having 39 yards in a 56-0 blowout of lowly Vanderbilt might be a reason Trask’s passing yards are up there the way they are. Our WR corp helps as well.

    Not a crackback block, but a blindsided hit. Get your head on a swivel. But, there was no reason for Mason to be out there when trainers were attending to his player and DEFINITELY no need for him to say anything to the UF bench.
