“The Gators have done it!”

This almost reads as parody.

Florida wins the national championship in only 1.2% of our simulations, but none of that matters if the simulation that happens is one of the 1.2%. So congrats, Gators fans, you won it all. And if 2020 plays out a different way for Florida? Well you’ll always have that time when your 1% chance became reality — on the internet.

Your Daily Gator will take that.  Thanks, Mickey!

    In that case, I’m a 5 time Masters champ. Shit, I won the damn grand slam last year on Tiger Woods 12. Anyone want to come to the champion’s dinner?

      I played AC4 Black Flag this morning, so I’m a pirate, too.

        Rib eye steaks are the main course, with sides of bacon cheeseburgers, fried/baked/grilled chicken, and baked potatoes. Appetizers will be pork from the hog I’ll have grilling in a pit I’ll have dug by Ike’s pond. For dessert, I’ll have Blue Bell bring back the Key Lime Pie flavored ice cream, because I’m the Masters champ and they have to do it. The wine is Coors Light and Boone’s Farm Strawberry Hill. I don’t anticipate an invitation back the next year.

    Any Given Simulation Given Enough Tries

    Is this the football version of the Infinite Monkey/Shakespeare theorem?

      The infinite monkey thing is bullshit. I guess in theory, given an infinite amount of time a monkey randomly hitting keys would type Hamlet. The only thing is the amount of time it would take is longer than the age of the universe. So in the universe which we inhabit it is not possible, even in theory.

    There are many on this board who have volunteered for activities with more than a 1.2% chance of dying. That’s not enough concern to lose sleep over.
    FTMF!

      I’m gonna lose sleep over the times I volunteered for activities…I’m looking for activities to lend my expertise to…Porfidio tequila, ceegars and a sunset (not necessarily in that order)…

      Well Ranger, when I was a young man, there was many a Saturday night when I thought my chances of getting laid were pretty good, when in reality they were considerably less than 1.2%. I have no idea what that means except maybe: persistence pays off?

    I could conceivably sit down at a piano and play Rachmaninoff, but chances are slim (about as good as Florida’s).

    When I read it this morning I was getting hot — “this MF writer must be a Floriduh alum” — then when you get to the 1.2% conclusion you realize he could be a Dawg or Seminole. Build them mofos up just to slap them with a hard dose of reality!

      Or the new Notre Dame. The fools on the ACC game of the week (or whatever they call their top HS game each Saturday) seem to think that the game between the Irish and Clemson will determine which team gets the higher bid in the CFP….like ‘Bama and UF in the SEC.
