No Guts, No Glory:
If you ever needed proof that Nick Saban only cares about “fairness” when it benefits him or his team, this is it.
When asked about how he feels about the loser of Saturday’s SEC Championship dropping below the Florida Gators and losing a spot in the Sugar Bowl, Saban says that it isn’t fair. And to top it off, he goes as far as to say that since Florida didn’t win the SEC East, they should not play in the Sugar Bowl.
“It’s not really a great scenario for either team,” he said on a teleconference Sunday. “You play your way into the championship game, which means you’re the best team in your division. It doesn’t seem quite right. I don’t feel good about it for our football team or their football team.”
Oh really, Nick?
Kinda like it didn’t seem quite right for your team to play for the National Title last season despite not winning your division?

College Cheer Heaven uncovered that a Florida State cheerleader, Mellisa, is dating senior walk-on Florida running back Scott Peek. It turns out that it doesn’t take being the star football player to date a smoking hot cheerleader.
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The statistics weren’t in Florida’s favor. Florida State came into Saturday with the nation’s top rush defense, allowing 70.6 yards per game and 2.3 yards per carry. The Gators ran for 244 yards at Doak Campbell Stadium, averaging 5.2 yards per carry. It didn’t surprise head coach Will Muschamp as much as the stats suggested. Florida knew it could run the ball.
First Down. The Florida Gators are ranked 5th in both the AP and Coaches Top 25 polls and it just doesn't seem right (#4 in BCS). They've beaten three teams currently ranked in the Top 10 (LSU, Texas A&M and South Carolina). For comparison, Notre Dame has beaten just three teams currently ranked in the entire Top 25. Florida's only loss came to 11-1 Georgia in a game...
