I have a buddy who's a big Gator fan. He was a young pup when Florida won their NC in 1996, and he was post-college when they won in 2006 and 2008. So he thinks Florida is still the juggernaut they were then.
Well, he's a smart guy ... he knows they're not. But he won't admit they're not.
I think Michigan wins this ... mostly because the grand unifying theory of college football is Harbaugh >> anybody.
Quick side story -- last year I was driving from Tucson to West Virginia. In a Shell station in Benson, Arizona ... in a sea of UofA and ASU hats ... there sat a row of Florida Gator hats. I thought, WTF? Why Florida way out here in the desert of Arizona? I have no idea why those hats where there. Maybe the station owner was from Florida ...
