Hate to dissapoint but Fla ain't going bowling. If Fla was good, I'd say yes. Arky is my pick this year. With name recognition and media respect this year... Especially with the narrow loss to bamy. And would help Midwest and Texas exposure more so than k state or Iowa st.
The first order of business is to get to a bowl game. We can be as disappointed as we want, but winning 6 games this year was not assured. The Tigers need a quality win over South Carolina and the chips may still fall in our favor. Clemson travels well but the Holiday Bowl seems a bit of a stretch. Also an SEC matchup holds some promise, so Penn State who is faltering may be out of the question for a 9-3 team. GO TIGERS !!
Not to be too hard on the rookie, but those were my thoughts exactly.
The opportunity for quality wins is over. Saturday will be our day of self-expression, and the bowl game will be our day of reaping what we've sowed all season.
IMO, it's ridiculous that the best matchup we'll get is with a 4-loss team. Iowa St has 5 losses, K-State has 4 and playing a backup QB, Penn St has 4, Ark and Miss St both have 4 and a tough get this weekend.
Meanwhile Clemson has 3 losses--a close loss to #1, an OT loss to a ranked team and a 10-point loss to the cross division champ--that's 0 bad losses in a down year. If we come to play we could put another 40-6 pasting on somebody going through the motions and enjoying FL.
