Florida Football Program Dealt Devastating Blow
- Updated: April 28, 2014
The University of Florida football program was dealt a devastating blow on Sunday when it was learned that the SEC would maintain an 8-game league schedule and mandate that every team play a non-conference game from the four other power conferences or Notre Dame.
This will force the University of Florida to actually play a real non-conference opponent. Oh the injustice!!
The Gators have gotten fat and happy over the years beating up on non-conference cupcakes. Sure, a lot of teams load up on cream puffs, but the Gators have been one of the worst offenders in the country.
The winners in this deal are the Florida season ticket holders, who over the years have been forced to buy four games against lousy teams. One or two “tune-up” games are fine, four is ridiculous.
Florida football like many other SEC teams has hidden behind the mantra, “we can’t play a decent non-conference schedule because the SEC is SO TOUGH! The only ones that have ever believed that gibberish are less than 14 years of age, or have an IQ below 60.
Tough blow for the Gators…
