Yup. You've got bragging rights. At Pitt also. Impressive. I was down in ft lauderdale watching that game at a sports bar full of cane fans. A sad bunch. Not much cheering.

There is very slightly more than absolute zero, to brag about with The U's football season ... and this who lost to who, by how much, an't part of it.

#8 Georgia #6 Florida 3:30.
Miami @FSU 3:30
#15 SMU at #24 Memphis ESPN College Gameday in Memphis. Is undefeated SMU for real?

I love App state. I think they are the best team in their little slice of the world.

Got that right! Too bad the Knights suck on the road (Temple game was headed down that path too until they rediscovered how explosive their offense can be). Hardest part is both UCF losses were close and would've likely been wins at home. Bounce House and the fans are definitely their 12th man. Predicting Memphis smokes an overrated SMU team tomorrow too.

Considering how poorly FSU played, The U should have scored twice as many points as they did. To a degree, a win is a win and I will take this one. But, damn I wish that I was seeing much more growth and progress with the team through the season.

You could take ALL of the defensive players on BOTH of SMU and Memphis and combine them into one squad .... and they would be at best an average Power 5 defense. While offense is fun to watch .... those are two horrible defenses!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Speaking of horrible defense. The Gators get brought back down to earth. I too had them playing LSU in the playoffs for the SEC after LSU took out Bama. This is what happens when you think with your heart and not your head. The Gators played like they were beat from the beginning. The score was brought close but that is misleading. They played terribly.

My Gators went into the preseason bragging about their "best in the country" DBs. They have been exposed time after time, leaving receivers wide open at critical times. (Or, they turn out to have been critical after they run unimpeded to the end zone.) The rush was almost nonexistent, but, they only rushed three most of the game and the running game is pretty much a non-factor except to (attempt) to keep the other team's D-line honest. And, Mullen makes some "say what???" decisions each game, like sending Jones in on a critical drive for a play or two which kills all momentum. It's like he has a brain fart, then recovers. That said, I expected them to lose to Auburn, too, at the beginning of the season. So, we are ahead of the game all told. I hope Mullen matures as a head coach though. He's had 10 years experience, so, we'll see if that happens or if we settle into 10-2 every year.

Willie Taggart didn't even get two years. LOL. Don't cry for him as he is now owed a 17 million dollar buy out.

FSU raised about $20 million in private donations to buy out what was left of Taggart's contract, sources told ESPN's Mark Schlabach. However, an FSU official denied that the money was raised for Taggart's buyout.

Under the terms of Taggart's six-year, $30 million contract, FSU's athletic department will owe him 85% of his remaining compensation through Jan. 31, 2024, which is between $17 million and $18 million. The Seminoles also paid Oregon a $3 million buyout when it hired him away from the Ducks in December 2017, as well as the remaining $1.3 million of a buyout that Oregon owed South Florida when it hired him in December 2016.

The first CFP poll comes out on Tuesday. Currently there are 4 teams from the American that are in the top 25 and none are UCF! SMU, NAVY, Memphis, and Cinci are in top 25. Although I think UCF is the best team in the American it is interesting to see others get respect.
