    Wasn’t it just two short years ago when everyone gang tackled the Dawgs for not traveling west of the Mississippi for 1000 years (before Az St) for a regular season game? I guess no one cares anymore? I know, I know…..there’s more good programs in Florida. Whatever.

    Senator,

    Did you read this corker in Georgia Trend this month:

    “If you had won the Heisman trophy and quarterbacked your team to an
    undefeated season (14-0) and the national collegiate football
    championship, which would you say was your biggest sports thrill?

    Danny Wuerffel, who did just that for the Florida Gators, in 1996,
    would answer, “None of the above.””

  3. Florida hasn’t left the state of Florida for a non-conference game since 1990. Just plain pathetic if you ask me.

      Why? What is magic about leaving the state of Florida?

      Besides, Florida has played a few bowl games outside the state of Florida

      Because for some reason it was national sports news that Georgia hadn’t traveled “out of the South” to play games in many years.

        Yeah, because all the good football is played outside the South. I have never really gotten that argument, but I do appreciate the opportunity to visit some new venues, especially the ones with cooler climates like Colorado.

          Look. The University of Florida playing anywhere in the state of Florida is like a home game for the Gators. Most of their OOC games are at the Swamp against cupcakes anyway. Why would they ever leave the state? Smart AD. Puts his team in the best possible position for success.

            Let me add to this post by analyzing FLA’s 2010 schedule: 4 away games (one is Vandy), 7 home games, plus the WLOCP and one of the away games is at FSU. That is 9 out of 12 played in the state of Florida. Good scheduling by a smart AD.

    The Steele poll has UGA as 7-1, but is the only team that has 3 games voted in the 50% range (vs SoCar, Ark, Auburn) meaning close games and possible loses. Ingteresting beginnning to season for the Dawgs. Momentum and confidence needed to win those potential close games.

    Something interesting from those Phil Steele SEC predictions for the Dawgs:

    Of the 4 teams we’ve been given the best chance to beat (UT, Vandy, MSU, & UK) , we lost to 2 of them last year and didn’t play 1 of them.

    Of the 4 teams we’ve been given the worst chance to beat (UF, AU, SC & Ark), we beat 3 of them.

    Alright, let’s not knock Bama’s out of conference schedule. We have, for the past two years, played a neutral site game (Clemson ’08, . We are now in a home and home with Penn State. OK, I get that Bama is playing the biggest patsy in the world, but it has a good angle: Bill Curry is the coach of GA State. I have to give props to both GA and Bama for bettering their out of conference matchups.

    Just like to point out that the article did, in fact, rank Florida’s OOC schedule tougher than Georgia’s.

    Playing USF and Miami every third or fourth year is not a bad thing, though personally I would like to alternate FSU and Miami. Against the law, though.

      No, it is not against the law to not play FSU. That is a popular myth

        Well, not a law but almost. From Wikipedia:

        Some believe that it took an act of the Florida state legislature to force the contest to take place. This is not entirely true – a bill demanding a UF vs. FSU football series was proposed in 1955 but was voted down. However, this bill eventually forced the University of Florida to bow to the pressure from state leaders and the teams agreed to schedule a yearly series starting in 1958.

    PS’s magazine is the most informative, and likely has the most informed readers as a result. Although premature to predict this level of detail, I like him publishing this poll and particularly like supplying the percentage probabilities and not just Ws and Ls. Having input from all over the country gives you better insight than you can get regionally. At least this is a start for developing a feel for relative strengths among conferences.

    I agree with much of the SEC predictions. I feel UGA will win that 40/60 game against Florida, but will lose 1-2 of the other SEC contests. Should that play out and Bama prevails in Tusky against UF, that would put the Dawgs in Atlanta for the SECCG. Any win against the Tide this years looks to be an upset, but who knows? Injuries and off-field issues could make us all look foolish so preseason picks are just for filling time. Tick, tick, tick…..
