The SEC is the best conference out there. My 7 year old son knows that.

No need to be punkish in your statements. After all, we don't know who U are or who your allegiance is to.

What I still don't know is....how does that make a very mediocre UF team better? I can confidently say that Miami would go that same 7-6 Florida did with their schedule. Wins vs Vandy and Tennessee at home??? Biggest win?- Kentucky?

....and the last time I checked FSU was still in the ACC.

SEC SEC SEC. Wow. Sad. pathetic incestuous dribble.

This doodsh acts like the SEC invented fast defenses.

He (or she) acts like cfb started in 2005. When the so-called SEC deominance began.

I dont recall reading Notre dame or USC talking this kind of smack and trash after dominating cfb in the 40s and 60s.


But if a confenrence wins 6 NC in a row, youhave to understand precedent: Miami was here before you rednks, and set the standard and was a true dynasty:

1983- National Champion
followed by BYU, Oklahoma, Penn State
1986-#2 to Penn State
1987-National Champions
1988-Notre Dame
1988#3
1989-National Champions
1990-Colorado/ Ga Tech
1991_Miami/UWash
1992-Alabama************SEC SEC SEC
1993-FSU
1994, 1995, Nebraska
1994- Miami played for the NC
1995-UF played for the NC
1996-UF_***** SEC SEC SEC!
1997-Michigan
1998-Tenneseee
1999-FSU
2000-Oklahoma(Miami#2)
2001-Miami
2002- OSU (Miami#2)
2003-USC/LSU ***** SEC SEC SEC
2004- USC
2005- Texas

So where is the SEC dominance? FACT: It started in 2005. NOT "decades in the making" like this a56hole is saying. He is actually linking the 1960s civil rights movement to the surge in southern football, yet he ignores that it was Miami's speed on defense that made teams in the 80s abandon the traditional wishbone offense. These SEC in breds want everyone to beleieve that cfb is all SEC and nothing else. thast garbage. And it is only making people hate themeven more. Such that when the drop comes it will be hard. It will be hard because everyone else will be in their faces and the rednks will go back into their caves. Things are cyclical- Before the Miami domination of 1983-1994 Alabama had one back toback NCs in 1978, 1979, and I can imagaine even then the rednks were saying SEC SEC!, but betweeb 1965 and 1978, Oklahoma won 2, Nebraska won 2, USC won 2, Texas won one, Ohio State won 1, Notre dame won 2, and Pitt won won. The big ten claimed 5 NCs between 1966 and 1978. Funny I don't recall ever reasding or hearing Big Ten people singing, BIG TEN! BIG TEN!

It's actually an interestingstudy in psychology to see this rationalization going on by SEC fans. Kentucky, Florida andOle Miss fans can use that as an excuse for their teams being horrible, and allows them something to attach themselves to. What else do they have? What iit is, though is an obnoxious alienation of the rest of the world. A clicky behavior that does nothing to promote cfb. Instead, it makes everyone else defensive, like some of us, who will cling onto other things, like

Miami has more players in the NFL than Alabama, LSU, or Georgia
Miami has more players in the Probowl
Miami has more players in the Top 100 best NFL players
Miami has the most NCs since 1980
Miami has more players scoring TDs than anyone in the SEC
Miami has more relevant NFL players than anyone in the SEC

Miami IS NFL-U.

See how obnoxious that can be, SEC?

Are you going to use that argument to plead your case with the NCAA?

True 5>3>2...I don't recall screaming "Major Independent schools #1!, when they won 6 of 8 titles in the 80's...

I still don't know what all this SEC stuff has to do with a disappointing Florida program.

Florida lost their only game to an ACC school.
Compare scores...FSU 23- UM 19....FSU 21- uF 7
OSU 7- UM 24....OSU 14- uF 21

Who's delusional???

Rieeeet, Pig. Taking less players is a way to get stronger. You have Pig blinders on. It will make the inexact science of recruiting more difficult when you can only take one or two as opposed to three or four.

The Pig logic is so dumb. Only idiots, like a Gatr valedictorian, use it.

If Miami has a* on their 5, so should LSU, USC. Furthermore, Miami should have 2 ** because in 1988 they had the NC effectivley stolen vs Notre Dame, when replay clearly showed Miami won that game, and in 2002. So Miami should really be 7* and if you include the fact that Vinnie Testaverde threw thatgame against Penn State with ints that nobody to this day can explain, then, Miami should be 8*

Now lest inject some rationality inhere.

There is now talk of a BCS plus 1. But thats garbage talk from Slive the SCE comm. The best format is an 8 game playoff. from the winners of the ACC, SEC, Big East, Big 10, pac 10, MWC and WAC (eight conferences). No team can be part of the palyoff if they did not win their conference. Playoff ncludes the 4 major bowls:

10 game season. All conferences play a conf championship game. Seedings based on BCS rankings. Then have at it with the 8 teams playing in the Orange, Rose, Sugar and Fiesta (or Cotton). Winners go onto play 2 semifinal games and then the NC game 3 weeks before the superbowl. . Winner would have played 14 games (as they do now). This year, KSU, Arkansas, VTech, Stanford, would all have had a shot. Then there is no excuse.

We finna take charge of undersigning.

Shut up, shut the f*ck up you all of you f*cking losers.

There is no rivalry between UF and UM, just a fake internet rivalry between a handful of pathetic losers who like talking to each other on the internet.

Every point you think you're making is completely negated by the fact that you're an internet-obsessed loser who doesn't know anything about football.

Go kill yourselves, and that goes for the UM internet losers too.

This bears repeating:

If it weren't for The U -- a small elite and the most envied private school in college football -- all you cheap public school losers would have nothing to talk about! We're HONORED that you losers dedicate so much of your time and energy to hate on The U! It's All About The U, Baby! HA!

So, get a life, you cheap public school LOSERS!

If it wasn't for the small private school, Nevin would never dined here and none of the canes would dine here. Thank you Canes! Duke Johnson was in here the other night so the tradition will continue!!! That kid can drink the bubbly - poppin' bottles like he won a championship!! We like it!

Fire shalalalalala now

Golden and Reno. You can thank randy bridgewater is not at the U. Thanks randy.
You see bridgewater is nothing but a jokecorey redu. No arm, no smarts, and not a team player. He. Seems to like to play from behind and loose.
Good riddance bridgewater

Now hold on Itcdolphin: Bridgewater can throw b/c I've seen him do so at Louisville. He's not a J12 clone. The reason he plays from behind is b/c his team is not ready yet, but give Charlie some time and defensively they will be. Expect them to have a lot of FL recruits in the next couple years, all things considered.

Sorry cool cat the bowl game and others showed bridgewater at this time displays a noodle arm, throws into coverage, and even looks a lot like jokecorey. If we was as good as you say he should have come to the U and sat jokecorey down.
We shall see. For Louisvilles sake I hope I am wrong. So far not so much.

Wouldn't want him "loosing" games down here.

Dumbass.

But really, does a cane maggot feel better going 6-6, getting beat by pansies like Maryland and BC with losing records and having Goldencrap as coach simply because he won at Temple? That is all pretext ment to bury the epic failure that is scUM or University of Mediocre. Chew that cane maggot, scUMbag.

Gaytr trash: Go sh--t yourself

F--gg-t U-niversity is nothing but a diploma mill. Accept it.

Deon BUsh- Committed to Miami. So far no F_U commits. Wow, coach Mushy is recruitingthe blank out of Urban lIar.

Cool cat- Stop acting like you know anything You are as dumb as the gtr posts here. teddy Bridge's last drive in the bowl- nice drive, then bobbles a floater up for grabs... int... game over... jacorry clone.

Deon Bush. 4 star commit stud goes to UM. "I want to put my city back on the map" You go boi. Welcome to the U.

With that, The U now has 29 commits. More than anyone. Goldie is doing what he is getting paid to do.

Ahh, finally something we can agree on. I'm with you on the playoff. It is ridiculous and defies logic that Div I does not have a playoff in football. Bernie Machen proposed it last summer and was shouted down by the other Univ Presidents. Too bad no one showed him or the concept any love.

BTW -- everyone knows you split that one with U-Dub.

Another stud commit to The U. Let's go Canes!

Crickets in Gatr Trash land.

Suck on that, maggot.

SEC West! SEC West! We all know the SEC East suuuuuuuucks. That means you, Gatr maggot.

No one in Coral gables the 305 or anywhere EVER disputed that UM and UW split that 1991 NC. Ever. What is your point, gatr tra-sh? Miami still has 5 NAtional Ch. Theoretically 8. UW has 1. LAst split NC was LSU and USC 2003. And your point being?

But lets leave it at that gatr worm

SHUT THE F*CK UP.

WHY AREN'T OUR RIVALS TALKING TRASH HERE?

BECAUSE THERE'S NO FSU BLOG TO DRAW IN THEIR INTERNET LOSERS - SHUT THE F*CK UP, ALL OF YOU, THIS IS PATHETIC!!!

Deon BUsh- Committed to Miami. So far no F_U commits. Wow, coach Mushy is recruitingthe blank out of Urban lIar.

You were saying......

Shut the f*ck up king kong.

YATES TO A JOHNSON. ACC VATOS!!!! ACC4LIFE™!! NOW LETS BUILD The stadium in miami lakes near shulu's golf course

OYE WE NEED TO BUILD A STADIUM BECAUSE IF WE HAD THE ORANGE BOWL WE WOULD HAVE WON TWO MORE TITLES

GO CANES!

----------------------

Wow some people just can't get me off of their minds. So much to the point that they try to use my handle and run with it. Ha!!! We don't need a stadium to WIN games. Sorry. If that was the case then the Canes would lose every away game on the schedule. Pathetic. Personally I would love a stadium that my Canes could call home. We don't have that now. As of now, we are simply paying rent thanks to the hobbit's great business skills. We're stuck in a 20+ year lease thanks to the hobbit.


FIRE THIS HOBBIT ALREADY!!!!!!! WHAT MORE DOES SHE HAVE TO DO TO PROVE THAT SHE'S NOT CAPABLE OF RUNNING THE U?!?!? ANY AND ALL THE GOOD SHE HAS DONE FOR THE U HAS BEEN COMPLETELY OVER SHADOWED BY WHAT HAS TRANSPIRED FROM THE BEGINNING OF LAST SEASON. ONCE WE GET HIT WITH ANY SANCTIONS WE'LL SEE WHAT HER JOB STATUS WILL LOOK LIKE.
