    Good bowl game.

    The team needs to be hungry to win.

    I’m good with rankings except for us being below Wisconsin. They have 3 losses including a terrible loss to a bad Illinois team. We lost on the road to the number 1 team and neutral site to number 5.

    If you’re not in the top 4 I guess it’s just a matter of respect. What bothers me is how next year’s rankings often are based off of this year’s finish. I feel we should be 7th or 6th. But that’s my opinion.

    I guess they were making a statement and thus establishing some precedent here that no team will drop after a conf title game loss. Save uva that fell one spot

    Do you guys realize how long we had a losing bowl record?

    Forever until Urban came in. Urban was 5-1 in bowls. He got us to .500.

    Lumpy maintained, Butters maintained, and it was actually DJ Durkin who got us one game above .500.

    With last year’s destruction of Michigan we are 2 games above .500. A great opportunity to make it 3 games on Dec 30.

    Then Dan will be on really solid ground.

    So you actually care about meaningless early season rankings. Just win and rankings take care of themselves

    Oh look we get screwed again via rankings and the matchup. Virginia is honestly a boring matchup.
     
  19. Too bad we didn't get that kind of courtesy after mac's losses to gump in ATL. When it's the Gators who lose the SECCG, just throw them in the Outback Bowl seems to be the default position.

    The powers that be just keep churning teams above us and we lock in at 9 no matter what. DISRESPECT.

    puppies/Baylor. Both winner and loser will outrank us even if we blow out uva. Watch. We are the Gators and we have a glass ceiling beyond which they will not let us go.

    Happy with the Orange Bowl. AGGRAVATED with the rankings.

    WhattaGator "Where's The Beef"?? (Or the crabcakes, etc.)... VIP Member "Cook Shack Chef"

    For them to rank us at #9 is a slap in the face.....

    When the Coahes's Poll has us at #7, and the AP has us at #6....you just know there's some bullshit goinng on in the committee....

    Oregon??? OK..they beat an overrated Utah team..but that didn't warrant the committee giving them such a huge jump...sure...give 'em their "tie-in" Bowl game, but not that ranking....

    Next... how do you put a 3-loss Wisconsin team ahead of almost ANY 2 loss team??? That just defies reasoning...

    Baylor??? qustionable at the very least..... They really didn't play anybody except Oklahoma, who they lost to TWICE,....

    The AP poll got it right.... the Gators should be at #6....and, we'll see what happens after the Bowl carnage.....I have absolutely NO problem exposing the CFP Bowl "tie-in" garbage, for pitting the Gators against the "next best" ACC team in Virginia.....

    We'll get a premiere NY6 Orange Bowl game, in Miami, to attract more recruits, while they watch the Gators pound Virginia, and give Coach Mullen an 11-2 season in only his 2nd season!!...

    Once the dust settles..(we'll have to see if Baylor really deserves the ranking when they play the Dawgs in t he Sugar Bowl).... then somebody has to drop when Oregon faces Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl....

    So... Either Oregon, Wisky, Baylor, has to drop below us after tht carnage....
    That's another reason I like the Orange Bowl against Virginia...

    Once it's all said and done....the Gators should finish at #6
