Thank God FSU lost their bowl game! FSU is nothing but a hoodlum team who didn't deserve a bowl championship!

What a game. I am just waiting for all the UF posters to start with the negatives. FSU takes half a team to Nashville and gives Kentucky all they can handle all day long. I do not think that is the play of a program on the outs. For what the UF posters have said all week. It would not be close. It will probably be one of the best bowl games of the year and did not disappoint the record crowd. And if you think Bobby was not ready, his half time interview showed one fired up man. Go Noles.

Congrats on your bowl championship, Go Knights. It was well earned against Mississippi State. Happy New Year to you too as well.

"Another brainless idiot. With the master of printed lies as a head coach. Dude, give it up."

Oh sure FSU, you guys have such a great team this year, and none of your players are hoodlums. Let's see, 36 FSU players got suspended for academic dishonesty. Junior linebacker Geno Hayes and senior fullback Joe Surratt were arrested in a bar fight in September. Surratt was charged with felony charges. Not to mention the fact that all this bad publicity will hurt FSU in their recruiting next season. Sure, the FSU Football Team is made up of a bunch of fine upstanding gentlemen. Whatever FSU! Their a bunch of hoodlums!

Hey Go Knights,
Tell me the top 6 ranked classes so far this year? Is FSU in there? HMMM, doesn't seem to be hurting recruiting. Maybe you have no idea what you are talking about.

Credit to the FSU Athletic Department for stepping up and doing the right thing with the suspensions. I wish however that they had been fully loaded to see how Kentucky would measure up with them. I still think that the Cats would win, just a closer match.

Yup.....coulda, shoulda, woulda. I wish you would have had them too, so we could beat you with your entire team.

So sorry for you loss....not really.

Maybe FSU played better because they left the stupid players home. I mean, if you cannot pass a music class, how *&^%ing dumb are you?

"Hey Go Knights,

Yeah, well most of those recruits signed on before FSU was nationally disgraced with 36 of their players being suspended for cheating on a music class exam. You can say whatever you want, Recruiting, scandals and bad publicity like that do not help your cause in garnering big recruits in the future. This cheating scandal has made FSU a national disgrace. What FSU needs to do is fire or get rid of Bowden and reorganize their program. If they don't that, you'll probably hear more stories in the news about the FSU Hoodlum (Football) Team in the future.

It should have gone to overtime. The refs screwed the Noles out of a TD on a bogus offensive pass interference call.

It was a very poorly officiated contest with many bad calls aginst both teams. Something needs to be done to improve the officiating in the bowls.

And your team is led by a coach who lied on his resume with Notre Dame. Your running back pads his yardage against teams in one of the WEAKEST conferences and you can't even score a touchdown in your bowl game. That was one HELL of a field goal, though. It's okay; your jealousy is noted.
