Go Gators !

I'm a big Gator's fan and have seen a few Sooner games this season.

I think the time off hurt both teams ( Harvin of FL did have time to recover from injury ). The game had no flow in the beginning.

I think we would seen a great game if it was played in mid Dec.

I have to agree... in addition to the other stuff I don't like about the non-playoffs...

Having 4-6 weeks from your last game to the "championship" game makes it slightly less interesting to me AND usually hurts at least one, if not both, teams from being at their best.

Not saying the outcome would have been different... but I bet both teams would have scored more a month ago than they did this week.

The poor quality of play in the first quarter did stand out. If they would go to plus one (or playoff) at least the actual NC game would be better since they would have played the week prior.

One thing this years round of BCS games really made me appreciate was ESPN. Fox's coverage and announcers were much worse in my opinion. First they cover what seems like half the screen even above the actual score bar and then don't even put the freaking play clock up for us to see instead giving us a sea of nothingness.


DirecTV, please don't make me have to go back to watching March Madness in standard Def! Oh, and the usual begging for AMC and BBC America. You are so close to actually being the HD Leader.
