What a performance that was from Florida at the Sugar Bowl. ESPN reported the school only sold 7,000 tickets to the game against Louisville, making this game a dud for a school that thought it should be playing for the BCS championship.
And this is why you’re getting a playoff. You think Florida gives more effort if that was Notre Dame on the other sideline? The Gators were 3-10 on 3rd down, had nine penalties for 98 yards and had three turnovers. That’s a team without a care in the world for a meaningless Sugar Bowl.
Then, after the game, two of the Gators best defensive players – Sharrif Floyd & Matt Elam – declared for the NFL Draft.
“I had three great years,” Elam said. “I did all I can for the team. I played my heart out. Now it’s time to take care of the family.”
And that was that. By the way, remember when the Sugar Bowl sold out and seemed important?
As for BCS chatter, Miami’s CBS affiliate is catching BCS fever. This ran during last night’s 6 p.m. broadcast.
In other exotic vacation football news, the NY Post came up with this for Rexy.
Finally, where can we get one of these BCS ripoff shirts?
