This is it. TD or FG, this is it. Running clock, still throwing effectively...making UF look like complete chumps.
Sugar Bowl Open Thread
Another missed Louisville FG. I'd rather bite into a raw beet than go back to that era of special teams at Michigan.
Louisville desperately trying to let Florida back in it.
They just ran 8 minutes off the clock...Florida getting "back in it" would necessitate them a) scoring quickly and b) getting stops.
That was an awesome play by the safety...I wish ours could do that
Wow, the Florida offense is awful. If you can stop the run or get up on them they have no answer at all.
Alright...20 points down and 15 minutes of regulation play left. Brent Pease (Florida OC) has Louisville right where he wants them, right?
Florida still needs 2 scores even if they get a TD here. Louisville has been doing a good time of killing the clock.
Why does Driskell suck so much?
Damn that was ballsy to take it out.
He makes the bad call to take the interception out of the end zone, and still bring it out past the 20.
Did anyone else see the Vatech and Michigan helmets used in that graphic before the commercial?
I can't express how much this game this pleasures me to watch (get your head.out of the gutter). Ess. Eee. See. I now bow to your greatness.
Did anybody else noticed that they used Michigan and Virginia Tech helmets with the Sugar Bowl logo after that last interception before they went to commercial break?
They wish that was the matchup they were airing tonight.
In the classroom, in the wieghtroom, in the community.
Pretty sure gator blogs are gonna crucify Willy Muschamp. Brian, can we get a special TWIS specifically devoted to this ensuing freak out?
I see you Florida.
Charlie Strong...this is a bad idea.
Did Louisville set some kind of a record by scoring in the first play from scrimmage of both halves? I've never seen that before. It's got to be a bowl record at least.
Only Muschamp tries a sneak from the 3...clock running, uses time out.
Right now, somewhere in Texas, Mack Brown is laughing.
Damn. We should have invited Louisville to the big ten. Academics be damned!
Hopefully the SEC will be semi fairly ranked next season. You start them off with 5-6 teams in the top ten let them play a weak non conference schedule and then drop them 1-2 places when they get blown out by 40-50 points and then act surprised when they perform like they have in the bowls.
Nebraska and Michigan where mediocre teams and took Georgia and SC to the end... Michigan should have won. LSU got beat by Clemson , Mississippi state got beat down by NW and now Florida ia getting smacked by Louisville. Hopefully ND lays a whipping on Alabama and we can put this SEC dominance to rest for atleast one year.
I just wonder where the bandwagon 'SEC" fans will go..... Nevermind i answered my own question. They'll just go back to being ND fans
I was with you up until you said ND whipping Bama. I will never be on board with a ND victory, especially in the National Championship game. Lets go Bama!
It took a lot of soul searching to pick who i was pulling for. I can put with ND fans a lot easier than I can put up with SEC fans right now. Plus if they win then we get to beat the defending national champions next year
What will the ESPN/media narrative be? Big East dominance? The fall of the SEC? Charlie Strong, who turned down the Tennessee job, deals another blow to the conference he spurned?
Tide repeat National Championships, duh
The impossibly difficult grind of the SEC left Florida with nothing left in the tank for tonight. One month of recovery isn't enough.
I'm sure ESPN will spin it to say Florida wasn't into it. They thought they should've been in the NC game. Some BS like that.
Amazing display of clock management by the Gators. Just pathetic.
Well, at least Florida still has their fans.
clap clap clap-clap-clap
EVERYONE LOVES PILING ON THE BIG EAST, BUT THEIR BCS BOWL RECORD IS PRETTY GOOD.
APOLOGIES FOR THE ALL CAPS...POSTING FROM CELL PHONE AND THERE DOESN'T SEEM TO BE A WAY TO TURN IT OFF.
Did Strong just shake the troopers hand?
You've gotta appreciate a sideline reporter who shoves his way in between a coach and the family he's trying to hug in order to ask a few meaningless questions.
Similar to yesterday evening after the Rose Bowl. It seemed David Shaw (Standford HC) was trying to celebrate and the sideline reporter was pulling the "Coach, you have an obligation to talk to me" card so he stopped for a minute and answered her question. He then proceeded to kind of walk away and be with his team and coaches, why he would want to do that after winning the Rose Bowl I have no clue, and she again tried to keep him by pulling the aforementioned card. Mussberger pipes in from the booth stating that "the winning coach know before hand and is contracted into giving an interview post-game" blah blah blah. Shaw is again pulled in, after, as Mussberger lets us know, "someone must have told him the circumstance and obligation" and answers her next couple shi**y questions. It's all such a crock. I personally don't need to hear what they have to say. If networks want to have their cameras and watch a bit of celebrating that is fine. But that is exactly what they should be doing, celebrating, and not giving dull, inane interviews with fuggin' sideline reporters.
Charlie Strong seems like a really good guy.
LSU Freek captures Muschamp's capacities well.
If that was me on that boat I'd be using this oportunity to grab all kinds of booty
ESSSS EEEEE SEEEEE dominance at its finest.
Big East > SEC ?
If only Rutgers had pulled it out, the Big Easy would have a clean sweep.
