    Or one might write, Florida plays both Miami and FSU in addition to their rigorous SEC schedule. Did Miami and Florida ASK for the change as stated in the article?

    Mainly it's a good chance to crap on our typical scheduling practices (caused by SEC schedule, UGA neutral site and FSU) and of course call out the 3 byes which is weird/unusual.

    "Oh look how weird their schedule is..." then it basically uses 5 of 6 points to make fun of it. Oh look Florida scheduled a hard opener, shocker. Oh look somehow they have 3 byes, how nice, and one leads into an FCS game, of which there are 2 FCS games BTW. Oh and remember when Florida lost to Georgia Southern?

    The only somewhat neutral point was that 2 games are neutral site. Nevermind that even ignoring the neutral/away difficulty and assuming Miami/FSU are still average or bad, this is one of the hardest schedules in the country and certainly the SEC.

    Thje "reporter" is either bored, a closet Bucknuts fan, or on Quaaludes.
    Most likely a combination of them.

    Clearly an opportunist. A couple odd things going on for sure, but clearly a "what can I write about today" article that will be clickbait. Do yourselves a favor and pass on by.

    So according to our schedule critics...

    UF should schedule Miami annually again, because we ducked them in the late 80s.

    UF should schedule a P5 OOC game annually outside of Florida, because playing an in-state rival every year with three national titles and long-term success over the past four decades doesn’t count.

    UF should give UCF a home-and-home, because a G6 school with fewer Top 10 finishes than UF has national titles deserves a home-and-home, based on being nationally relevant for two years.

    UF should move the Tennessee game to December, because Tennessee beat us that one time we moved the game to December...so we should accommodate them seeing as how they don’t beat us all that often.

    And we should do all that while keeping FSU as our season finale.

    However I do HATE that we’re playing two FCS schools. Playing one FCS school is one too many.

    You’d think we could get a couple Sun Belt or MAC schools to come to Gainesville.

    What a weird article. I do like the idea that FLORIDA is starting to rub some people the wrong way again, that old familiar sting.

    Go GATORS!

    But no, that dude had to focus on the two FCS teams that we play instead. No offense to the OP, but this was a weird article.

    This writer must have lost big money when the Gators spanked Michigan in Atlanta. He is the un-Gator.

    Two FCS opponents, three byes, blah, blah, blah...

    If we win six games against the likes of Miami, FSU (both of whom I believe will be better this year), Georgia, LSU, Auburn, Mizzou and Kentucky, the folks who MATTER will ignore the blah, blah, blah...

    ESPN asked both schools to move their game up a week for the 150th Anniversary of college football. Hence, there was an extra or third bye created before UF's second game.

    This author did not do his research.

    Actually, it was the NCAA who originally picked this game, and or course, ESPN was already designated to carry it, because of the celebration of 150 years of College Football.

    A twist on a classic saying-
    The gator doesn’t concern itself with the opinions of the turtles.
