Is that like Florida shutting out Hawai'i? Oh wait, the Gators didn't. They gave up 10 to them. Dang, even Oregon State held the lil' ol' Rainbows to 7. Must mean the Pac-10 has better defense than the SEC. Chomp, chomp.

Baylor has a fantastic freshman QB, Robert Griffin, who set a freshman record for most completions without an int. I think Baylor would be able to beat Miss. State, Arkansas, Tennessee, and maybe even Auburn and Vandy.

Oh, and that Ole Miss team that beat y'all, they're qb'd by a Big XII reject.

Uh, the Gators hung 60 on Hawaii and when Hawaii finally did score it was in garbage time against the Gator's waterboys.

This year's Big XII is starting to look alot like The Big 10 a couple years ago when everyone was saying Michigan and Ohio State were the top two teams.

FYI, I'm a lowely Pac 10 fan, so I have no dog in this fight.

the gators didn't shut them out. point? when you put the game away by halftime, you put in your backups. weren't you the one who was oh so impressed by UCLA beating TN at home in overtime? TN is horrible. everyone knows that the SEC is the leader in tradition, and it's where coaches want to coach. aren't you a lame ducks fan? good god. stick to defending your own team about their 3 losses. especially the most recent which was to a team that got destroyed by powerhouse maryland. hey, good 7 point victory over stanford! they must have had elway back for the game.

No, they put 56 against the waterboys. Hawai'i also shut out the Gators in the first quarter. Point is, Florida should only get respect when they shut out "horrible" teams like Hawai'i. I mean, that is what jmarquis said.

Oh, and I'm a Duck fan, so I certainly have no dog, er, duck in this fight.

I can give it out, and I can take it. feel free to call them the florida gaytors. I can take it. texas fans are actually known as being some of the most classless. granted, you are a distant second behind ohio state. I don't have an unbeatable defense. florida does. I am not a part of the team, and you are not a part of the longhorns. you are a fan. georgia barely beat kentucky, who destroyed louisville, who destroyed kansas state, who hung 550 yards on the sooners. lighten up. I think you take a game a little bit too seriously.
Wow the old Team 1 beats team 2 who beat team 3 who beat team 4, the most useless and dumbest argument there is was or ever will be. Should expect as much from a SEC fan

Well, you are right, the Ducks are definitely not a power like the Gators, but at least every once in a great, I mean, a great while, we can take care of business against chump teams like Michigan.

Oh, I wasn't too impressed with the fUCLA win, considering I'm a Tennessee alum. Oh, and we had to come back to win against that Stanford team so that makes it look even worse.

no, I am saying that giving up 550 yards to a horrible team is embarrassing. don't need to shut everyone out, but how about a few games when your opponent scores under 30.

Lets throw out Bama or Texas Tech and go with who should be higher in the polls, Texas or Florida. Florida loses at home to Ole Miss who is 5-4. Texas loses on the road to Texas Tech who was #5 in the polls at the time. Please Jmarquise give me a reason that makes sense as to who's lost was worse and what changed this week that showed Florida derserving to jump Texas when both teams won by pretty big margins.
