    Florida isn't even in the same league - figuratively and literally. They're gonna get clobbered.

    Whatever happens, Ohio State is the far superior team. Upsets do happen, but if Florida wins, thats exactly what it is - not just an upset, but a major upset. Still, I'm sticking with OSU.

    Everyone wants to parallel this game to the OSU-Miami Fiesta Bowl four years ago. Heavily favored team with lots of speed and offense against a team that got there by just barely pulling out most of its games with a gritty defense.

    The one factor everyone (in the media) seems to not mention: the heavily favored team is not being coached by Larry Coker this time around.

    I think it'll be a good game. But I think Ohio State has too many weapons and too many options on offense.

    I remember when the Buckeyes were in this same spot a few years ago with UM...I never would have thought in a million years: that the Hurricanes would have lost that game. Maybe the Gators can return that same favor this year, and beat the heavy favorite -- just like the Buckseyes did to the Hurricanes a few years back. GO GATORS!

    How ironic that I covered that point in the post just before it ...

    I know the Bucks will win, but that won't get rid of my Gator pride.

    contrary to my earlier posts, i think florida wins in an upset, possibly by a couple touchdowns.

    no rational reason, just instinct.

    I'm feeling a Florida upset too, for some reason.

    Please, Ohio State is much much better, the Rose Bowl will be a better game to watch.

    If you want to see exactly why Michigan doesn't deserve to play for the NC.

    It sure was.


    Florida will beat OSU because they will be the ones playing with something to prove. No one is giving Florida a realistic shot to win this thing and they're going to take it out on Ohio State. I do think OSU is the better team but Florida will play the better game next Monday.


    I'm rooting for Florida because I usually root for the underdog in these types of situations and I also don't like the fact that OSU played one game to get to the national championship.


    Go Gators!

    Yeah after the Rose Bowl it is shown the BCS got it right.

    I am going to go with Florida because of regional bias! :p

    I do not pay much attention to college football, I think it sucks with all the voting crap and things.

    In any event Seminoles > Gators ALWAYS!

    Anyhoo, I am forced to go with my home turf. Much like last years NBA finals when I was pulling for Miami even though I am an Orlando fan.

    Gators. :rolleyes:

    Don't let that enthusiasm get the better of you, Jack. That kind of overhyped trashtalking could lead to fisticuffs.

    :p

    I'm going to go with the safe bet and say the Buckeyes, but of course many people did the same last year and said USC.

    Hopefully it will be an interesting game, either way.

    Obviously, I'm pulling for the Bucks. But as some will recall, we didn't "belong" in the title game against Miami a few years ago and we saw how that went down, so I'm not going to simply say that we'll win easily. Upsets happen.

    I mean realisticlly, I would love Boise St. to play OSU cause they are undefeated but I doubt a school like that has a chance against the majors any time soon.
