    ...good game for the Gators, one more BCS loss for OU. Wondering how many more Stoops will amass before he gets the axe :nono2:

    I was rooting for FLA but only because they are an SEC school and that's my conference. It wasn't anything like the game I (or the "experts") with the turnovers and defense being more of a story than the offenses.

    One thing I will say about Tebow, I don't think there's much chance of him being successfull as a QB in the NFL. You just can't run like that in the NFL if you want to survive - everyone on defense is too big and too fast - and I don't think his arm is NFL quality.

    Heard on 'Morning Joe' today:

    "If you like Jesus, you'll love Tim Tebow...five minutes with Tim will change your life!"

    :sure:

    Gratz to the Gators & Gator fans out there....not my cup of tea however, I grew up FSU fan. Reminds me of 1 Christmas when my uncle (huge Gator fan) thought he would be funny & bought me 4-pack of Gator plastic glasses with logo in between the clear plastic :(

    Playoff System Here We Come, Utah Utes 13-0, Florida 12-1. The Gators are NOT my National Champs.

    ^5. I'm far from a Gator fan, but anyone doing missionary trips for the cause of Christ gets a thumbs up from me.

    P.S. I would have vote Utah #1 just to spite the system because the whole process stinks.

    Your kidding, right? :)

    We've been to half of the NC games this decade. We won 1, but can't win them all. Sure would like to though!

    I can hear the AD at OU now......

    :lol:

    ...not kidding at all. I think he is an excellent coach. I worry that in this day and age he'll get shown the door, and that'd be a shame...

    That would be a shame. Listening to sports radio from OKC, it seems that most fans felt the team was well prepared, and played well. Florida was a very good team, and we got beat.

    I felt pretty good about last nights game as well. OU missed some opportunities to capitalize, but no one expected Tebow to be shut down in the first half like he was. A Yahoo article called the game sloppy - I think it shows what happens when two teams finally have a good match. I wish it would have come out the other way around, but in the end we didn't capitalize on 2 first half goal line stands and the turnover in the second half put it away. It was a good close game.

    I don't think Texas or any other team would have played them the game OU did. Stoops said it best when he said if the worst thing he had to worry about was playing for and losing the National Championship each year then he didn't have it too bad. I don't disagree with him. He isn't going anywhere.

    I too, however would like to see a playoff system though. I'm most impressed with Dan Wetzel - writes for Yahoo. Some of the best articles that make a whole lot of sense about what is wrong with the current system, whose fault it is and how to implement a playoff system.

    Until then - we have what we have - and next year it will probably just be different teams and fans in different places complaining about the very same thing.

    Congrats Gators. Tough loss considering the recent BCS games. OU will be alright though and hopefully can get #8 soon.

    I was probably part of the very few Oklahoma citizens going for Florida. I knew they were good enough to win. I been telling people for weeks. It was a good game and the better team won.
