    Not really. I was one of a few that had tried to temper expectations even after the 1st 2 games because something was missing. Defensively, we looked like last year giving up tons of yardage to 2 high school teams and then looked decent against Bama. Really, the Tennessee game is the only good game we have played all year and even there Tennessee was up before we turned it on right before the half. From that point, that ended up the high mark.

    No, the sooner we end this season the better. At this point the team isn't worth watching the way they are being coached. I have zero interest.

    The idea of being happy with a loss to FSU is disgusting.

    You don’t deserve to wear Orange and Blue.

    Mizzou and FSU are BOTH losses. Mizzou is on the road, we can’t win on the road. FSU is flat out better than us. They can run the ball and that is all you need to hear this team. FSU’s defense can stop the run and will make UF one dimensional. It won’t be that close.

    After the way Mullen handled the bowl game last year would it matter

    Well, that’s assuming we can get a win over Samford.

    Does it matter since cdm treats them like scrimmages and practices for our 2nd string.

    The fact that we are contemplating this given how easy our schedule was this year is so pathetic

    South Carolina has shown Samford how to beat us. Just start your third-string QB. (If he's a transfer from some school like St. Francis, all the better.)

    We’ve not made a bowl game not that long ago.

    And anyway, yes we will.

    It is not a guaranteed anything. Win or loss. I get it but you are not using your rational mind if you think we stand not a chance to beat Mizzu.

    If we get eligible, our most likely destination seems to be the Duke's Mayo Bowl. (According to ESPN, CFN and CBS.)

    Oh, how the mighty have fallen. The Duke's Freakin' Mayo Bowl?

    Bear Bryant used to say that you can gauge your team's success based on whether their bowl game was named after a commodity as opposed to a concept. The Sugar, Orange, Cotton and Rose represented success. The Freedom, Independence and Liberty represented something less than success.

    What would he say about the Duke's Freakin' Mayo Bowl?

    I completely understand your sentiment but the thought of losing to FSU is sickening.
