Though the Florida Gators (8-5) completed the 2010 season with an exciting 37-24 victory over the Penn State Nittany Lions in the 2011 Outback Bowl at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, FL, the team was once again unranked as the season’s final polls were released on Tuesday.

    Quite a disappointment I’d say. I am so happy for Temple right now.

    Not to surprising.

    this is what happens when you beat every unranked team on
    your schedule and lose to every ranked team on your
    schedule.

    Watching Auburn’s OL and DL last night just reinforced that BIG and MEAN up front on both lines win games. We sadly lacked size and TOUGHNESS this year, and I sure wish I saw signs of recruiting to that weakness/need… we need our DC out on the recruiting trail, now!!

    Mostly same kids but different coaches this year. The results will be interesting.

    The Bears should help get him out on the road pretty soon.
