    Virginia??

    So is everyone happy about this?? We are ranked 7th in the nation and we are playing a team ranked 25th. It's my opinion that we got screwed.. yet so many folks are delighted with this matchup. I just don't get it I guess.

    We're happy about the orange bowl and had a week to mentally prepare. UVA is anticlimactic.

    Simply, it is all about recruiting. And an easy trip for a lot of fans.

    Matchup not very exciting, but playing (and winning) in a NY6 bowl game in a major recruiting area for UF like Miami and getting to 11 wins are all very positive aspects of the game.

    Just think how many 2021 S Fla recruits coaches can call and visit with and possibly invite to practices or game?

    If our team has a cavalier attitude we are in trouble.

    This is a game where if we win, we were suppose to. We lose, well... We'll never live that down. Must show up and lay down a 30+ point win.

    Follow the lead of the 1959 Gators who destroyed Virginia 55-10.

    Sad thing is we had to fight tooth and nail to earn the spot while UVA is like... "He's your participation trophy for being 2nd best of the worst conference".

    Now if Clemson gets smoked can UF claim the acc championship?! :ninja3:Asking for a friend!

    We are delighted that...

    Our coach has gone 2 for 2 on 10 win seasons
    2 for 2 on NY6 bowl selections.
    We get to (hopefully) blow out a P5 runner up in Miami's own stadium with all the south Florida talent watching.
    It puts the fact that we have reclaimed our own state into it's biggest venue and most important city (recruiting wise).

    I welcome a 50 point blowout with all those eyeballs.

    I am 100% delighted.

    Much better than playing Memphis in the Cotton. Hopefully it pays off for our South Florida recruiting!

    I am happy that we get to play in a bowl, get 15 extra practices, get a NEW YEARS SIX game. I would be happier if we played Central Michigan. All I care about is winning, not about the strength of the opponent. Again, the 15 practices are huge for next years team.

    We are both. Place will be packed full of Gators 80/20 (at least). So it doesn’t matter what side you buy on. I promise will you will be surrounded by Gators.

    Where I could see your point, one thing Dan Mullen does well is bowl games.

    I think we'll have our game caps on come 12/30.

    I'm thinking something along with the lines of 41 - 13 Florida.
