    Hey Egghead, where are you? Please come out and play. Just last week you were comparing FSU to LSU as a more “complete” team. Good one. Sure, FSU is complete… Completely shitty, and completely out of the play offs. FSU’s luck of barely beating bad teams finally ran out. I hear the AD is now petitioning to move the Seminoles to the Sun Belt so they can start another conference win streak. Wouldn’t be smart as the Sun Belt may be better than the ACC. FSU was too scared to join the SEC when invited and now are losing to the bottom dwellers of the much inferior ACC. Egg face, your noles are going down to the much more talented and better coached Gators in Joke Shamble this year. The way it should be, and according to the overall record, the way it has been. Cheers Humpty, and enjoy the pain of that loss, because it’s going to sting for a while.

    Spunkly, As a Gator, I love your passion for the Gators… I was writing a long response but… Just shut up. Idiot… We have not played them. You can enjoy their loss like the moron you appear to be.

      This egg guy has come on this site every time something positive happens for the Gators and tries to shoot it down. He types about FSU as if they are a dynasty and can beat anyone in the SEC. It’s ridiculous. And yes, I am thoroughly enjoying FSU’s loss. It’s about time the luck ran out. No need to throw names around. I see no problem with me calling out the troll and predicting a win over FSU. Calm down Rob.
