Gator Champs...


Can we say statement game? As national champions go, the Gators were nearly flawless Monday night in dominating Ohio State 41-14.
I never in a million years would have thought that UF would win by 20 or more points. The game says a lot about the SEC and the Big 10. Also one could say it says a lot about USC hanging with UF and since they were one kick away from writing a different story.
Side note - First time in history the men's basketball title and the football title has been held by the same university at the same time. Also "kudos" to Dev for picking UF to win.
Any thoughts?

dear swab,

If you read my comment on the blog - "First time in history the men's basketball title and the football title has been held by the same university at the same time."

Key word is "held."

UF is the defending (and current holder) of the mens basketball championship trophy. UF is also the defending (and current holder) of the football championship.

I never said 'won in the same season.' Read the statement fully and you should see my point. The win by UF made "Florida the first school to hold the national titles in football and men's basketball in the same academic year."

If you still doubt this please google the thought or check out this website - http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601079&sid=aK_5SfgA.zCM&refer=home

And then read the second paragraph. Or read more on this at espn.com or if you watched the pre-game last nite you would have heard that same topic being dicussed about UF holding both championships!

SO THANKS FOR PLAYING SWAB.
