To your point, this last season is a shining example of how absurd it is when people say “meaningless” in front of “bowl game”. Look how everybody is melting down because UF got our asses handed to us by Oklahoma in that “meaningless bowl game”. Now consider how much brighter the future would be looking if we’d taken it to Oklahoma and put up 40 or 50 points. Think there would be less complaining from our fans? Think that might have impressed some recruits? Either way, that bowl game was not meaningless. They’re never meaningless.
