What a performance that was from Florida at the Sugar Bowl. ESPN reported the school only sold 7,000 tickets to the game against Louisville, making this game a dud for a school that thought it should be playing for the BCS championship.
And this is why you’re getting a playoff. You think Florida gives more effort if that was Notre Dame on the other sideline? The Gators were 3-10 on 3rd down, had nine penalties for 98 yards and had three turnovers. That’s a team without a care in the world for a meaningless Sugar Bowl.
Then, after the game, two of the Gators best defensive players – Sharrif Floyd & Matt Elam – declared for the NFL Draft.
“I had three great years,” Elam said. “I did all I can for the team. I played my heart out. Now it’s time to take care of the family.”
And that was that. By the way, remember when the Sugar Bowl sold out and seemed important?
As for BCS chatter, Miami’s CBS affiliate is catching BCS fever. This ran during last night’s 6 p.m. broadcast.
In other exotic vacation football news, the NY Post came up with this for Rexy.
Finally, where can we get one of these BCS ripoff shirts?

Sometimes a picture is worth a thousands words this one taken at the end of Louisville/Florida Sugar Bowl game speaks a lot.
The lone Florida player is backup linebacker Darrin Kitchens who is the only member of the Florida team to stand during the team's alma mater song.
The song is usually reserved for victories but Kitchens still went over to show his support....
Every time Florida wins, the team stays out on the field to sing the alma mater with the band. On Wednesday night, the Gators suffered a shocking loss to Louisville in the Sugar Bowl. The players and coaches were understandably disappointed after losing a BCS game that almost everyone assumed they would win, but junior linebacker Darrin Kitchens was in no mood to sulk.
As you can...
Many college football teams have a tradition to stand on the field together as the marching band plays the school’s alma mater. I would venture to wager the majority of those teams do so win or lose.
On Wednesday night in New Orleans, just one player remained on the field to hear the alma mater for Florida after the Gators were roughed up by Big East champion Louisville to the...
The Gators lost their third player to leave early for the NFL Draft on Friday when tight end Jordan Reed announced he will forgo his senior year to play professionally. The redshirt junior ended the 2012 season as Florida’s leading receiver.

I’m going to go out on a limb and assume that this Police Officer and Charlie Strong know each other from Strong’s time in Florida, because that was an emphatic hand slap. If you watch closely at the end of the video, you can tell that between the handslap and the smile, this state police officer wanted Louisville to pull off the upset.Video via: Sports Pickle

So far in the first half of the Allstate Sugar Bowl, Florida coach Will Muschamp must be kicking himself. Back in the early Spring of 2011, the newly crowned emperor of Gator football decided to pass on lifetime Gator fan, Teddy Bridgewater, a rising quarterback prospect out of Miami; instead, Muschamp went with top … Continue reading »
Florida may be favored to win the Sugar Bowl on Wednesday, and being a member of the Sec may have a lot of people believing this won’t be much of a match up with Louisville, but don’t tell that to Florida head coac Will Muschamp. The Gators skipper knows his team has their hands full for the big contest with the Big East representative.
Tim Tebow is spotted on a different sideline and this time it doesn’t belong to the New York Jets. With his NFL season over, it appears Tebow has enough time to travel to the Allstate Sugar Bowl. Tebow is on the sidelines to watch his former Gators take on former Gator coach and current head coach Charlie … Continue reading »
Thanksgiving has come and gone. It wasn’t even last month at this point. It was days and weeks and months ago. But I’m thankful for something I’d like to add to my list from last year. I’m thankful the Florida Gators only have to face South Carolina’s Jadeveon Clowney once more. He has to leave after his junior season, right? I present to you the No. 1 overall pick in the...
The Florida Gators got more than they could handle Tuesday night when the Louisville Cardinals brought it to them on both sides of the ball. Former Florida defensive coordinator Charlie Strong saw his Louisville team win decisively against a team that kept hurting themselves as well. Here is a pictorial of the game.
College football is always full of surprises. Louisvile's control and domination of the Florida Gators through much of the Sugar Bowl was certainly the best surprise of the bowl season. It's quarterback performances and coaching efforts like that which keep fans on the edge of their seats as soon as kickoff hits.
However, one surprise that didn't come from that game...
Instead of giving Louisville the credit they deserve for coming out last night and completely owning the Florida Gators, you’ll hear some folks mention that Florida was “disinterested” in the game.
Florida’s poor performance is being talked about more than Louisville’s stellar play. After re-watching the game this afternoon, Louisville deserves all the credit for making...
