Gator bait

You think Georgia’s 2018 home schedule leaves something to be desired?  Florida will be playing two FCS opponents in 2018, and two more in 2019.

According to, Florida is scheduled to play home games in 2019 against UT Martin (Sept. 7, 2019) and Towson (Sept. 28, 2019). Playing multiple FCS opponents is not against the NCAA rules for FBS programs, but only one win would count toward a school’s bowl eligibility (essentially meaning Florida would have to win seven games if it won both games against the FCS opponents).

… Florida’s FCS opponents in 2018 will be Charleston Southern in the season opener on Sept. 1 and Idaho later in the season on Nov. 17. The game against Idaho was scheduled when Idaho was still an FBS program. This season will be Idaho’s first season in the FCS after moving down, but SB Nation reports the NCAA has given Florida an exemption for that game so it may still count toward bowl eligibility (assuming it is Florida’s second win against an FCS opponent in the fall).

Let’s hope the football gods have some fun with that.

    Florida going bowling with 4 FBS wins would somehow be even more gratifying than missing a bowl altogether.

    Especially if UCF handed their asses to them.

    BS. Gators, that’s just plain weak. Idaho should not count as an FBS game this year, sorry that should just be “the shit outta luck, too bad, so sad” cards that were dealt, when you (Foley) schedule the lowest of the low, while also never leaving the home state for OOC road games vs FBS BTW, even with that Idaho win and a 6-6 record it still doesn’t guarantee an invite or even a spot…wouldn’t that just be glorious if they got passed over causr I can sure do without having to watch a bowl with retinal burn orange and blue.

    “if they win both games”, love that thought. I hope the other state of Florida coaches keep their foot on those bastards’ throats in recruiting. Couldn’t happen to a finer group, especially with their new mouthy coach.
