Not that it compares to Tulsa's schedule but Arizona have had Oklahoma State, Stanford and Oregon in their first four matches. Just some fun facts.

Florida and Miami games sell out every year (whichever one is at home). But again, you should know that.

National Championships/BCS games/conference title games show how successful your program is. Now ACC title games and Big East ones don't really mean much these days. Either way FSU hasn't done any of the above in a long time.
Ah the Florida Gator mentality. So when do you plan to stop watching your team... after Alabama crushes you next week or the week after when they go to LSU?

You can chose to ignore the hype that was there before the year but when you play in the ACC the two games you lost end your season based on the expectations going into the year which were national title hopes.
Again, when you aren't favored in both games, no one believes you are winning a national championship. Oklahoma favored by 3, Clemson favored by 4. You are the one creating this "hype". The only hype for our team was winning the ACC, which still is up in the air. Again, Clemson has 3 rough road games so it is far from over.

I believe I read Osborne is advising Nebraska fans to show up in black so they dont contribute to the Wisconsin sea of red in Madison.

The ticket prices are getting astronomical. Its going to a rocking frollicking night in Madison----if the Badgers prevail there will a lot of activity on State Street after the game.
No one travels better than Nebraska. They will bring a ton of people.

Mustberger claimed it was the first in two years which was the last time UF was there for us to buy up all your tickets. I'm not sure counting sellouts based on playing teams that fill up your seats is really much to brag about.

I'm a season ticket holder so I'll be at every game. FSU fan is the one that bails when things aren't going well. You try selling tickets to TCC students. It was only a couple years ago there was some ticket special for $100 dollars.

You are the most modest and patient FSU fan I've ever encountered. All the ones I talk to had national championship hopes. The media was right on board. This attitude of low expectations has served you well over the last 10 years I guess.

State Street will be a party regardless. Its a fun place to be even if you are the visitor...unlike say LSU.

There could be 25,000 Husker fans in Madison that night. Not every single one in the game, but I know there are hundreds of students driving up to Madison just to party. It is going to be nuts.

You buy into ESPN bias... now I understand your approach.

Again, media wasn't onboard. Both teams were favored. That means everyone thinks that those two teams were going to beat us. If you have 2 losses, it is near impossible to make national championship in today's play where most teams schedule non-conference cakewalks *cough* Florida.

As for low expectations... my expectations is seeing my team improving each year. I don't have unrealistic expectations like most Gator fans do. Meyer HAD to bowed out when Dan Mullen (i.e. the brains) left since last season was just hysterical. Foley drives coaches out when they don't perform.

Bias against FSU? haha. You guys haven't done anything in 10 years, that isn't them being bias.

Clemson was only favored because Manuel(who Desmond Howard said would be a heisman candidate after OU game) was hurt.

You look very foolish commenting on Florida's schedule. Care to compare sagarin rankings at the end of the year?

You are right, Foley does demand results. It's why UF won two national championships while FSU hasn't done anything in 10 years. Expectations are driven by the fanbase which goes back to why FSU has a casual following. They will put up with a decade of not winning while top programs will not.

Sucks when the prediction for your team is out the window after only 4 weeks.

Interesting. So all of his recent posts are a bit of revisionist history.
