Bowl Games and 2008 Season

Posted: January 3, 2008 in College Football, Florida Gators

As a Florida Gator football fan its a real disappointment to see them look so poorly. It’s not enough for them to lose to a team that lost to Appalachian State, but they have to go and lose without even looking competitive.

There are at least 20 teams with a better defense then Florida, which makes no sense. Back to back No. 1 recruiting classes followed up with the worst passing defense in the SEC is nuts. How can they not find one decent corner and one decent safety out of all of those 4 and 5 star players? Their defense acted like it was their first game of the year with all of the botch coverages and missed opportunities.

In addition to lousy Gator football, I must say this selection of BCS games isn’t much better. Georgia vs. Hawaii was a joke, USC vs. Illinois was equally laughable. The Fiesta Bowl is ridiculous when you consider that West Virginia couldn’t beat the worst team in their conference and Oklahoma killed the second best team in their league. The Orange Bowl could be one of the worst though, by taking an overrated Kansas team and pitting them against an intense defensive team like Virginia Tech. Plus, neither team is very sexy…why would anyone watch?

Finally our national Championship…LSU vs. Ohio State. Two of the most overrated teams in the country are playing to see who ends up national champs not who earned it.

    Pretty good WVU game tonight wasn’t it!! Hard to believe that there is a world outside the SEC! Hope all is good at Oak Leaf – hope to see you guys soon!

    Anthony, I enjoyed your sermon this past Sunday. I am new to Oak Leaf and didn’t know you are a Gator. Both of my sons first gifts in the hospital were personalized signed photos of Danny Wuerffell. My parents are Gator boosters and my mom work with Danny at Desire Street Ministries. We need to talk! I will make it a point to introduce myself next Sunday.

    Sounds good. I like to know as many Gators as I can, because I have so many enemies around here. I got a significant haircut, so look for a slimmer version of my former self.
