Had we been able to go down the field on that last drive against LSU, kicked a field goal and won, what would everyone be saying about our chances against Florida then?? I'm not talking about just us here on the board, but the media and others out there would probably give us the edge today; we'd probably be the favorites to win. We didn't play our best last week and still was in it until the end. The Swamp is not the same as Death Valley and Florida is not quite as good as LSU. I'll admit I'm a little nervous just because so much is at stake today, but if we play like we are capable of, we will walk the dog on the Gators today. GO COCKS!
The media would be torn or touting it as a legendary matchup. I, personally, would still be worried bc of the injuries along the DL.
Today it is all about your last game. We throttled UGA and we were the toast of college football. We got dominated along the LOS by LSU and now we aren't so great. If we beat Florida, we'll get all kind of credit. But I don't think we'll get a lot of high credit unless we win the enxt two SEC games to secure the East.
You are right, Boogity, if we had won, 3/4 of the 'experts' would be picking us. Everyone is so short sighted nowadays.
Ally will beat the crap out of Uga.
Fans are way too focused on the outcome on the scoreboard to be logical in terms of their picks. The media is often the same way. The only ones who aren't is Vegas. Had we won the game last week, we still wouldn't have played well. That's something to remember. Sometimes teams play well and lose and other times they play bad and win. Momentum plays a role, but it's really about match-ups.
Well, for one, it would be a #2 against #3 match up with the winner being touted as the favorite to take down Bama. The hype would be so fricking high because it would be another Top 5 against Top 5 SEC game.
Vegas Odds from week to week...approximately
Vanderbilt - missed it by 2 1/2
East Carolina - missed by 15 1/2
UAB - N/A
Missouri - missed by 11
Kentucky - close
Georgia - missed by 25
LSU - close
On average vegas has missed by over 9 points per game. Vegas is seldom right on any particular game and usually misses by a wide margin. They're interested in making money...not accurately predicting football games.
