The Bull Gator:
Even if we did see this coming, the sting is still real. Florida Gators’ junior safety Matt Elam and junior defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd have both announced they will forgo their senior seasons and enter the 2013 NFL Draft.
Eventually, there will be many things to smile about when looking back at the Florida Gators season. For the immediate future, we’ll only remember the Sugar Bowl loss, but when we come around and are ready to celebrate the 2012 season for it’s high points, Elam and Floyd will be among them.
Both came to Florida with great expectations and both left fulfilling them, using the hire of head coach Will Muschamp to springboard their success.

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.

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...

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.

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.

However, one surprise that didn't come from that game...

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.
NEW ORLEANS - The University of Louisville upset the 3rd-ranked Florida Gators in the Allstate Sugar Bowl on Wednesday night. The Cardinals received outstanding play from both sides of the ball and led throughout. Teddy Bridgewater, who threw for 266 yards and 2 touchdowns, was named Most Outstanding Player.
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.
