LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Just touched down in horse country. Beautiful place, Lexington.
As soon as you leave the airport here you're reminded that college football is actually third on the sports pecking order in this part of the world. First is horses, then college basketball then -- a distant third -- is college football.
The skies are overcast this afternoon and rain is expected tomorrow morning. It could be sloppy for kickoff. The rain probably favors the Gators. (Need I remind anyone of Florida 45, Florida State 14 last season.)
Anyway, some of y'all have already picked up on this but in case anyone hasn't noticed my national college football column in today's paper was about the possibility of a Gators vs. Canes match-up in the BCS National Championship. Here's a link to the column, CLICK ME!
I interviewed the COO of Las Vegas Sports Consultants and he supplied me with betting odds for a number of Gators topics, including the national title game, the Heisman Trophy ceremony and the mythical point spread if Florida played Miami this Saturday.
It makes for good water-cooler discussion, so leave a comment on the blog.
