Rumor mongering for all!!!!!!!!!!
Three (crappy) posts = fail
LOL, I just watched this clip a few days ago.
Glad we haven't all lost our sense of humor. Vols, Gators......whoever, excited to hear tonights anouncement!
Program not being down another 3 years? I assume you're talking about Rich Rod potentially staying around
No new knews!
I have a friend who works for Gator Bowl Association....SEC is furious the Gator Bowl didnt take Miss St. I've already booked a flight. The fact is, they are looking for a Title Sponser for next year and ALL they care about is T.V. ratings.
It's not TN's fault that Mississippi St. is a historic joke of a second tier program in the poorest state in the Union.
You'd think a Benjamin-driven organization like the SEC would realize this.

At single posting.

What is the opposite of "charm" that would be appropriate for this post? Third time is a fail?
[Buddha and I tied with this point. Great minds think alike!]
"Third time's a ritual suicide"
Third time is re-watching the 2008 season.
Ever hear of a tune-up?
Ever hear of a ritual killing?
in public again and there'll be one.
Except in bowling.
Never actually seen a triple post before. I've only heard of them....until now. Didn't actually think they existed.
I guess you missed when I 20x posted in the organized negbang then,
Ha, I actually think I did, come to think of it.
I've heard of them, but have never actually seen one. Didn't James Bond have a fake one once?
In the Man with a Golden Gun. He used a stunt nipple to pose as Scaramanga.
The rule of three. It must be true.

How can Florida (7-5) pass USC (9-4)?
I would love to see a Michigan-Tennessee matchup. Michigan could kick their a--es and put them in their place just like Woodson did to Peyton Manning. He and Fulmer whined like b-tches when Woodson was picked over Manning. I loved it.
Then they got thrashed by Nebraska and costs us half of a NC.
...Peyton choking in the Orange Bowl and crying like a little girl on national TV.
Honest question, because I don't recall. I remember Fulmer, but not Peyton.
I want revenge for the Citrus Bowl.
some revenge would be sweet. As much as that would be pretty cool to play them again, still wouldn't mind a Urban vs Rich Rod game.
I was at that game. Painful loss indeed.
was the most painful part of that game. A tight end outrunning your safety is never a good sign. That UM team was LC's worst squad by a fair margin.
That would be a favorable matchup against a Tennessee team that has quite a bit of growing up to do as well. I thought we were going to get gang raped by the Big 12 title loser.
but what's funny is how I was ragged when I posted we would play a middle of the pack SEC team ... and not the loser of either the SEC or Big12 title game.
UT gives us fans the revenge factor we want. Nothing to gain in playing Florida ... since they're still stinging from Lloyd's last game !
Go Blue !
Better lower that expectation - we were 7th in the B10 !!! You think we'd play the Big 12 title game loser ??? Whoa ... I think your Iphone must have typed this by itself.
Start looking at the middle of the pack teams in the PAC10 and SEC conferences ... this would include Arizona, Florida, Georgia and Mississippi State. I personally believe it will be an SEC team.
I "ragged" you because you wrote a douchey comment insinuating that someone's phone must have typed their comment because their expectations were too high. Yet, you clearly still do not understand how bowl selections work. You are dishonest here because:
Yes, Dee Hart was just updated on Rivals to be committed to "Michigan, the team playing in the Gator Bowl."
I'm going to my FIRST UM bowl game. YeeeeeeeHAAWWWWW!
I have family just over an hour from Gainesville, so flight, tickets, and car rental is all I need. Will also be taking my 19-year-old daughter to HER first bowl game. Merry Christmas to me.
The Gator Bowl is in Jacksonville, not Gainesville.
Going from Gainesville to Jacksonviille is like going from Jackson to Detroit down I-94: I-75 to I-10 to Jacksonville. AAMOF, when Spurrier coached at UF, he spent a fair amount of his down time in a condo just south of Jacksonville.
Have a great trip.

Nah, that's not how you'd get from Gainesville to Jacksonville. You could go that way, but no one does. Takes too long. 301 is the way to go. Just be sure to watch the ol' speedometer through Starke and the rest is smooth sailing.
Spurrier still has that pad...it's down in Crescent Beach just south of St Augustine, about an hour south of Jacksonville.
I actually knew that, but in my excitement I didn't type it...AND there's still time for several more beers yet this evening.
facts can be so misleading, where rumors, true or false, are often revealing
Yes please. I like where this going.
A New Years Day bowl game for RR and this team considering expectations and the injuries we've suffered would be an enourmous accomplishment.
I hate to bring this up, but if we're playing Tennessee, it would probably be favorable for RR's career if we won. Does anyone see it this way as well? Hopefully we hang half a hundred on them (and stop them a few times).
Given that it is a weak Tenn team, it will not be so good for him if he loses.
It lowers the expectations a little bit. Now it almost feels like if we lost to UT, then it's a disappointment. Right now, I'll take the risk if it means a higher profile bowl.
Sway Arnett to Blue?
But a 500+ yard day against an SEC defense (you know, because no one in the country can match up...) could open up some eyes, hopefully for some on the fence recruits.
Except for that Oregon game they played earlier.
Anyway, they will be ready and properly showered.
they played Oregon this year
And got completely and utterly destroyed via 45 unanswered points. I swear Chip Kelly and the Ducks treat their opponents like a mouse the way a cat does before killing.
it's not going to be a cake walk by any means
UT was able to score 52 on an Ole Miss defense that was not significantly worse than Michigan's. they were also able to limit LSU to 16 points. this is not a bs team.
...an Ole Miss defense that was not significantly worse than Michigan's.
At first I thought there was no way their defense was worse than Michigan's. Then I looked and Ole Miss gave up 422(!) points this season. Michigan has only given up 406...still awful.
They've been clicking pretty well since they inserted Tyler Bray (true freshman) into the starting lineup, and won their last four games to become bowl-eligible. They have talent but are a young team.
They're in the same boat Michigan is, they've beaten the bad/average teams and lost to the decent/good teams. I don't know how competitive they were relative to the final scores, but they have five double digit losses and a near upset of LSU.
Their last four wins were over Memphis, Ole Miss, Vandy, and Kentucky.
I'm sure they're significantly better than at the start of the year, but they're still not too good.
I was going to mention that their 4-game win streak consisted of three pathetic teams and one decent one (UK). So, yeah, not very impressive, but I guess a win is a win.
I think we will have the edge over the Vols. Their offense is ok, our defense is bad. Our offense is very good, their defense is below average. I don't put that much stock into the near-miss at LSU, because LSU has such an inconsistent offense, and never seems to blow out even the truly bad teams. Maybe I am being a bit rosy about things, but I still think we have the better team.
we were in a few of games going into the 3rd qtr this year... Matt Sims was the Steven Threet at michigan of UT football... This guy was the worst qb ive seen in a while. Tyler Bray would have been good for maybe another W or two if he played all year..
Time to get some payback for the 2002 game when we got our asses handed to us
Please let it happen, I've already started giving my brother-in-law and nephews grief.
the dreaded double post, Doh !!!!
This is a match up I could live with.
*sigh* my vols vs my wolverines... and here i was hoping both my boys could get Ws to end the year... why baby jesus?!?!
Not saying it couldn't happen, but neither school could have accepted an invitation that hasn't been made yet.
we owe those bastards.
Gator Bowl is SEC #6:
Top 5: Auburn, Arkansas, LSU, Bama, USC
They have 2 in BCS so it would technically be Miss St in the #5 Chick-fil-a. So that would leave Florida (7-5) with still a better record than Tenn... no doubt that the gator would still pick them over Tenn (6-6) if they had a choice (not sure if they do, I thought that if there is a team with a higher record, that team must be chosen before the lower).
If they do get to choose if the team is w/in like 1 win or has the same conference record, then Florida would prolly get chosen over Miss State (8-4) and go to the #5 spot, Miss State (8-4) could not be pushed aside for 6-6 Tennessee, thus, no Tennessee in the Gator.
This is all just based on my own inadequate knowledge about how bowls pick teams and should certainly not be taken as expert opinion
USC is not bowl eligible due to cheating.
University of SOUTH CAROLINA....i hope you were being sarcastic
I just purchased tickets, as I will be in Orlando for a vacation. I figure at worst I can put them back up for sale. I've never been to a bowl game, so I couldn't pass this opportunity up. Or maybe I could have, but the beer told me I definitely should not wait.
We could get some revenge for that 45-17 beatdown in the 2002 Citrus Bowl
I could see us beating Tennessee. They too are rebuilding, and have struggled this year, so its very possible we beat them. I think.
I just saw cbssports.com updated their bowl projections and they have Michigan vs Tenn. in the Gator Bowl as well. I will be happy with this match up. I originally wanted Florida, but Tenn. would be a game with some interesting headlines. Michigan's first bowl game under RR, and some revenge from the Citris Bowl a while back. I would love for UM to come out and kick some ass. Hopefully, for RR's sake, this happens. I am a fan of RR and would love to see him lead the troops in '11. Go Blue!
