On the surface, Florida's 26-3 win over Miami on Saturday could have looked like a display of hard-nosed Gators defense coupled with Tim Tebow 's fourth-quarter moxie after a rocky start.

The Gator spread is much more effective with the refs in your pocket.

The 3rd quarter incompletion that was ruled a reception was an enormous game changer. Gator fan you have your view and everyone else has theres. You still won but I would be thankful you had SEC refs.

Gary Danielson is a putz. I've never liked him. One of the worst commentators on TV. I can't tell you how often I've been tired of hearing an SEC game ruined by his idiotic comments. And his partner Lundquist ain't much better.

Surely CBS can find a better A team that those two shmucks.

What a pansy. If you're on the field, and you have pads on then you should be ready to take a hit. Just like the Gators to whine about something; it's either this or bad officiating when they lose. The Gators are the Tony Stewarts of college football.

Besides the fact that it's UNBELIEVABLE you Cane fans are STILL crying about this game, PLEASE explain what the Canes were doing offensively up to that play. They were doing ABSOLUTELY NOTHING, so to say that call changed the game, shows how little you know about college football.

I love Tebow, but he takes too much physical punishment to stay healthy all year. And if he gets hurt, then what?

Even if he stays healthy, our coaching, offensive line, and running game leave a lot to be desired. Word is that our recruiting class is gonna lack the quality of past years. Appears as though we are in a death spiral.

Probably gonna be a down year in 2008. We will be lucky to win 9 games. 7-8 games is a more reasonable estimate.

Go Gators.

Pot, meet kettle! Whose crying about the officials.......besides Cane fans? Always an excuse with you people! Thought Randy said "NO EXCUSES"? That was a joke! Listen, just rack up more than 140 yards of offense and more than 3 points and you can maybe win! You lost! You were dominated on the line of scrimmage. And The Gators actually started a younger team than the Canes did, so that excuse doesn't hold water either!

You are absolutely correct Steve, but when your on top, the ref's are always on your side, look at that BS roughing the passer call during last sundays dolphin game, protecting Brett Favre, so get used to it, we Gayturds will continue to get the calls, just like favre, brady (ROFLMAO) and Manning do, its the way it is, now if you will excuse me, i have to jump back in the hottub with my boyfriend, he's ready...AMEN
You right the gayest crap I've ever read. Seriously, you are constantly posting gay stuff on this message board. You obviously get off on thinking up homo-erotic scenarios in the locker room. But if that's how you like to spend your Sunday morning...

Actually, they're a pretty good broadcast team. Ohio State looked awful,Michigan is awful, the Dawgs are awful. Nobody will beat Southern Cal, not even the gaytors.

No, Danielson and Lundquist suck. Are they the worst ever? No. They're no John Madden, Bill Walton, or George Foreman. But they suck nonetheless. Give me Todd Blackledge and his "Taste of the Town" segment any day. Or any of the other quality commentators that exist on any of several channels.

And yes, USC is just nasty this year. I can't see anyone stopping them right now. But then again, they have a tendency to stop themselves. Plus, Ohio State just plain quit on them. That was sad to see.

Doesn't anyone just enjoy the games for the game anymore? Who cares who's the best right now, that will be settled at the end of the year, and yes probably usc and the Gators, or maybe Georgia, who knows yet, just let them play, and enjoy the games, they have been great... Some really great upsets, some really crappy games (usc-ohio), we all knew osu was bad, but wow. Cane fans get over it already, quit being such crybabies when you loose, yah there are some excuses, but so what, its over.......! They lost, now move on... SOME OF YOU 'SO-CALLED GATOR FANS' don't sound like you got a pair, you sound sad, or gay, and need to be proud of them gators, who know's what the future will hold, just a few years, well many years ago, the Big Ten was a powerful group of teams, now look at them. I can say that, im from Ill. Many years of suffering with the Illini. Glad I left there 20plus yrs ago. Now stop crying, buck-up, and enjoy the Games, and GO-GATORS...!!!

He's had 2 weeks to "rest" from a game where he had over 300 yards total offense alone.....

I think Tim is okay to play tackle football this w-end....
