Wow, do either of these teams play O????

This is one boring ugly game.

Florida might be good but people compared them to the 2001 Canes????

Not even close, the 2001 Canes would beat this team by 40 points.

this is the most boring game ever!

watch your own game....oh, that's right, the U is not on TV this week....Losers!

wow that really hurt. That had to be the dumbest insult ever. If it was actually intended to be an insult. I'm not even sure. Try playing a real team sometime this season.

Seriously though. Was that supposed to be an insult? I'm really interested to know.

Impressive? Really what was impressive about that game, it was excruciating to watch, other than the Riley touchdown why was Tebow even in the game? if that is how we are gonna play then Brantley should have been in the game. I GUARANTEE WE WOULD HAVE SCORED MORE POINTS IF TEBOW WAS NOT PLAYING

Tebow has to get the glory so he and Urban hug and the cameras can zoom in and the announcers can fawn over them. Awwwww! Even at the expense of a much wiser decision. They took a chance of getting Tebow hurt against a team that has NO OFFENSE at all. You could have beat them with Rainey playing QB.

Bama should be #1

TX #2

Hey U guy, sorry I'm not good at insulting. I don't have it in my heart. I'm happy. It's great to be a Florida Gator! Come on over, there's plenty of room on the bandwagon. Besides, there are more Gator fans in Miami than canes fans so no one will even notice and you can finally be happy!

LOL That is such a weird post.
